MP challenged to support Peoples Vote

Local Liberal Democrats have called on Harborough, Oadby and Wigston's Conservative MP to back a Peoples Vote to sort out the Brexit mess.

The Conservative MP (Neil O'Brien) is a keen supporter of Theresa May's Deal, which last night suffered the biggest defeat in the Commons by any government since WWI. At a recent Prime Minister's Questions, he only read out letters in favour of the deal, even though local residents have told us that they have written to him with the opposite view.

If the Conservatives survive today's no-confidence vote, Mr. O'Brien need to face reality: the size of the defeat means that even a changed deal is not going to pass.

The only way out of the deadlock is to go back to where this process started and ask the voters in a Peoples Vote.

If you agree that Brexit is the wrong path for future of our country, please support the Liberal Democrats' call for a Peoples Vote, with the choice to call off Brexit and continue our European Union membership.
