This CLP notes:
The Conservative Party is determined to rip the UK out of the EU on October 31, deal or no deal. Labour must oppose the damaging agenda of an unelected Conservative Prime Minister.
Labour must reflect the overwhelming view of its members and voters, who want to stay in the EU
This CLP believes:
There’s no ‘good’ form of Brexit, it’s a right wing project and Labour must oppose it.
The prospect of Brexit is already causing huge damage to our communities, with devastating job losses at Honda, Nissan and many more. After nine years of austerity imposed by Tories and Lib Dems, our public services are under terrible strain – Brexit in any form will deepen the crisis
EU membership better enables us to tackle the climate crisis, as members we can lead the campaign for a Green New Deal across 28 countries and a population of 500 million
EU membership guarantees the free movement of people which has brought huge economic and cultural benefits to our country. The EU is the most successful peace project in the history of Europe.
The only way to resolve Brexit is through a confirmatory referendum with an option to stay in the EU
This CLP resolves:
Labour must unequivocally commit to a confirmatory referendum with Remain on the ballot
Labour must campaign to stay in the EU in that referendum.
If a General Election is held, our manifesto must include a commitment to a confirmatory referendum between Remain and a deal.
