  1. I voted for you in the last general election. I had been a lifelong Conservative voter but I am a firm Remainer and resigned from the Conservative Party.
    We need your party as a home for Remainers but we should invoke article 50 only after a second referendum. It is the only democratic way. Don’t be drawn into Johnson’s style autocratic style – prorogation for 5 weeks is disgraceful shenanigans and I hope ruled unlawful.
    For the sake of the UK, and a stronger Europe in an uncertain world, please vote for a referendum before final decision to remain. I’m sure you can win General Election that way.
    Best of luck!

    • I voted in the Party Conference NOT to go straight for the revoke policy as I have been campaigning for over 3 years for a Peoples Vote, attending the London March on three occasions. My understanding of the new policy is that the Revoke ONLY applies if the party wins an outright majority – something that has not been done since 1906 (when the Conservative Leader and PM lost his seat!) Now that the Brexit Party has stepped aside, it is far more likely that we are looking at a hung parliament and in that case the Peoples Vote is very much the party policy. please do get behind my campaign – join as a volunteer on my website vikkislade.org.uk
