We urge all Remain voters in Welwyn Hatfield to vote Liberal Democrat to "stop Boris and stop Brexit in the most important election in our lifetimes”.
With just three days until polling stations open, the Lib Dems have unveiled ready-to-go legislation for a People’s Vote as soon as Parliament returns after the results on Thursday.
We would introduce two draft bills that together would pave the way to a People's Vote on Brexit. First, a ‘Paving Bill’ which would enable the Electoral Commission to start the necessary consultation around a referendum question and lead campaign designation. Secondly, a full Bill which would provide for a referendum on the deal versus staying in the European Union.
In the last parliament, Lib Dems laid amendments to secure a People's Vote 17 times, and voted in favour of a People’s Vote at every opportunity.
Our candidate, Paul Zukowskyj said: “I know after weeks of canvassing, just how sick and tired you are about Brexit and the damage it is inflicting on our society; how the young, elderly and most vulnerable are being neglected after years of cuts to our NHS, schools and transport. But the Tories’ slogan Get Brexit Done is not the solution. It is just another hollow promise.
“That is why we have legislation ready to go to secure a People’s Vote with the option to stay in the EU. This is one of the most important elections in our lifetime. The choice on Thursday is a simple one; vote Liberal Democrat if you want to be part of a progressive, positive and prosperous society, or vote for more of the same and risk the Tories trying to push through a disastrous Brexit.
“More and more people in Welwyn Hatfield are joining the Liberal Democrats. Together we can create a brighter future. We have a local record of action in standing up for our young people by championing facilities that keeps them off the streets; protecting our green spaces and tackling waste management.
“A vote for me is a vote to stop Boris and stop Brexit and help us to deliver on the issues we all care about that will make a real difference to our daily lives.”
