Chris Morris, Union Affairs Officer at Leeds University Union said: “We believe that supporting the People’s Vote March for the Future is important because student voices need to be heard. In the 2016 referendum, LUU campaigned to remain in the European Union (EU) and we respect the result, however democracy did not end on 23 June 2016. The terms of how we leave were not on the ballot.
Over the past two years more information and actual facts have emerged, giving people a more informed view of what Brexit might look like, leaving a vote on the final deal the common sense option to make sure we aren’t left with a deal that nobody wants. Calls for a People’s Vote are growing as the current plan for Brexit continues to lose support in Parliament creating a halfway house plan which benefits no one.
