Support 'The Peoples Vote March', on October 19th !

Let's all support a People's Vote on Brexit for all the reasons outlined here...and let's resolve the issue of Brexit for good with an informed confirmatory vote that comprehensively and clearly expresses the wishes of the people, 'all' the people, both leave and remain, based on facts and the status quo 'now'.

A second, confirmatory vote that should have always been a pre-condition of having a referendum on Brexit in the first place, surely!

And the 'only' main political party that now supports the option of a Peoples' confirmatory vote is the Labour Party !

The possibility of leaving with 'No Deal' should have never been a option given how destructive this outcome would undoubtedly be for our already struggling public services and local economy!

All projections, including those made by this government, and all other independent and authoritative sources (ie,. 'Yellowhammer' and 'Black Swan' etc) highlight that no Brexit deal can ever come close to competing with the best deal we already have.

As full members of the EU we have full voting rights, a veto, all the 'opt-outs' agreed and retention of our own currency sterling, and the multiple trade deals and agreements accrued over 40 plus years that made us the fifth largest economy.

We are also influential in shaping and reforming what I agree is a less than perfect EU, but that represents one of the world's most powerful trading blocs, with all the protections that confers for our nation and its citizens in terms of workers rights and conditions, environmental protection, and food and animal welfare regulations.

Not to mention the importance of maintaining our key role geo-politically in terms of intelligence, security of the realm, and co-operation with our 27 other partners in combating organised crime (ie,. drug, cyber and people trafficking related etc,.)

Most importantly, in what is increasingly, a very hostile world, this country's security, and the livelihoods of its people, should 'never' be put at risk by the possibility of a disastrous 'No Deal' Brexit !

I hope all who can attend the planned People's Vote March in London on October 19. A fleet of coaches have been organised at multiple collection/pick-up points throughout the UK...look-up them up by going to the website for the Peoples Vote March October 19th...(the nearest collection point for Wigan I believe, at this time, is behind the Nye Bevan Swimming Pool in Skelmersdale at 6 am returning for 5.30 pm)

Lets make all our voices heard on what will be a momentous day!
