Backing the Brexit deal. It's time to get on with it

On Sunday the EU Council approved our Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration.

 

On 29 March 2019 the United Kingdom will leave the European Union – fulfilling the democratic decision taken by the British public. 

 

We have achieved a deal with the EU that delivers on that decision, a deal the nation can unite behind and one Parliament should back.  

 

It is time to get on with it.     

 

If we back this Brexit deal, it means: 

 

  • We will control our own borders and end free movement once and for all
  • We will protect jobs with a deal that is good for our economy
  • We will no longer send vast sums of money to the EU so we can spend more on our priorities, like investing in our long term plan for the NHS
  • We will be able to strike free trade deals around the world
  • We will take back control of our laws, ending the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the UK
  • We will keep people safe against crime, terrorism and other threats by working closely with European countries
  • And we will protect the integrity of our United Kingdom 

 

However, if we reject this deal, we will go back to square one. This would mean:

 

  • Damaging uncertainty which will threaten jobs, investment and the economy
  • More division
  • Less time to focus on the issues that matter here at home, like the NHS and our schools   

 

So this is the choice: Backing the deal in the national interest so we can build a brighter future – or going back to square one by rejecting it.  

 

However you voted, now is the time to come together. It is time to get on with it.
