A message from Cllr Phil Knowles.

The triggering of Article 50 has now taken place, I thought that members might find the following of interest, Kind regards, Phil ......

Catherine Bearder MEP's comments on the Prime Minister triggering Article 50 below:

"Theresa May insists on the hardest and most divisive form of Brexit, choosing to take us out of the Single Market before she has even started negotiations

This is a betrayal of the millions of businesses, large and small, who rely on easy, tariff free trade with Europe.

The clock is now ticking on a Hard Brexit - but it can still be stopped.

The Liberal Democrats will keep fighting to give people a final vote on the Conservative Brexit deal.

Someone will have the final say over our new deal with Europe. It will be the European Parliament and the heads of the 27 member countries, It could also be Westminster politicians or it could be the British people.

We believe democracy didn't end on June 23rd, we believe it should be the people."
