If Parliament comes together and backs the Brexit deal we will leave the EU by 22 May.
We will finally be on a path that will allow us to pursue our own trade deals and set our own skills based immigration policy.
We would be able to take back control over our fishing waters and our farming policy, set our own laws and spend the vast sums of money we currently send to Brussels on our priorities like the NHS and schools.
If Parliament doesn’t back the deal there are only three possible outcomes:
- Parliament could stop Brexit altogether – despite their election promises to respect the referendum revoking Article 50 is supported by some Labour MPs, and this is also the policy of the SNP and Liberal Democrats. Others want to try to stop Brexit by holding a second referendum.
- Britain could leave the European Union without a deal. However, given the large majority in the House of Commons against no deal, the likelihood is it would be blocked by Parliament.
- The third outcome is a softer Brexit, following a series of ‘indicative votes’ – This could mean staying in the customs union and keeping free movement. It would require a further extension to Article 50 which would also mean holding European Parliament elections.
By backing the meaningful vote, we can deliver Brexit on 22 May. We can be out of the EU in just two months. We can end three years of divisive debate and uncertainty and allow the country to move on towards a new future outside EU.
