Dear Cllr Ejiofor,
I am writing to ask you, as Leader of Haringey Council, to publically give your support for a People’s Vote on the outcome of the Government’s negotiations on leaving the EU. In particular, I urge you to make representations to Jeremy Corybn to give his support for a People’s Vote.
As you are no doubt aware, the momentum behind this referendum is growing both nationally and locally. Polls now show a majority of the public now support a referendum on the final deal or lack thereof (YouGov July 2018). The idea has been backed by businesses and trade unions such as the Royal College of Nursing. It has the support of the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party along with MPs from Labour and Conservatives, including the two Labour MPs who represent this borough.
Earlier this year, the Labour-controlled London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham passed a motion at its Full Council advocating a People’s Vote. More recently, your opposite number at Camden, Cllr Gould, has come out in support.
I understand that the Greater London Assembly will likely vote on a motion about a People’s Vote on Thursday 6 th September. I would also urge you to make representations to the Labour Members sitting on the GLA to support this motion.
Over the last year, the public’s attitude towards leaving the EU has changed. It has become apparent that the Brexit that was promised cannot be delivered. Under these circumstances, the people of this country (including those in our borough) deserve the final say on whether they want the Brexit that is actually on offer.
I look forward to hearing from you.
