On Friday 25th May, 200 people attended our Brexit Dialogue event at the South Holland Centre in Spalding. The panel consisting of Rt Hon. Ken Clarke MP, President of European Movement East Midlands, Rt Hon. Tom Brake, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Exiting the European Union, Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader of the Green Party and James Torrance of Renew Britain were moderated by a familiar figure on TV screens in the East Midlands for many years John Hess the former BBC East Midlands Political Editor.
The event was reported by the Lincolnshire Free Press and was also covered on Twitter - the audience consisted of many local people, who posed some challenging questions for the panel and everyone left knowing more than what they did when they arrived.
John Bland, Chair of the Lincolnshire branch said:-
"This evening has proven to be a great success - whilst it is unfortunate that our local MP has chosen not to attend, I hope that many of those who had voted to leave that did attend will reflect on where the Brexit negotiations are now and ask themselves whether the path being pursued by the Government is going to deliver what was promised. If they feel let down, then I hope that they will appreciate why many grassroots groups up and down the country are actively calling for a #PeoplesVote on whatever final deal is put before Parliament, allowing the people to have the final say"
