Exit Brexit - Courier Letter January 2019

Dear Sir,

Last week's vote in House of Commons takes us a step closer to an exit from Brexit. The resounding rejection of Theresa May's Brexit deal was a massive Parliamentary defeat.

While it is encouraging to see cross-party talks eventually take place at Westminster, what is left of the Conservative Government is in crisis while Labour is still failing to provide any coherent opposition.

To ensure the livelihood of people right across East Lothian, the deal we currently have as EU members is probably the best option available. Liberal Democrats will work tirelessly to ensure that this practical and viable long term solution becomes a reality.

Yours sincerely,

Robert O'Riordan

Convenor, East Lothian Liberal Democrats.
