We look forward to seeing you all. A press release has been sent out to media – with the message that voters everywhere need to be alerted to the grave threat to our region and our country from a “reckless and irresponsible” Boris Johnson Brexit.
Richard Sadler, chair of North Yorkshire for Europe, said: “With Johnson’s deal, our region would take a big economic hit, we’d all be worse off and there would be less money for essential public services – and a real risk of our treasured NHS being run by corporate America.”
Richard Wilson, chair of Leeds for Europe said: “Boris Johnson’s slogan that he’ll ‘Get Brexit done’ is a con.
“If his deal went through, 2020 would mark not the end of Brexit, but the beginning of a very long and painful process. “
Martin Brooks , chair of York for Europe, said: “Outside the EU we’d be a middling size country with much less clout than we’ve got now.
“Far from taking back control, we’d fall into the clutches of the USA, China and Russia and unaccountable multi-national corporations who don’t share our values.”
