by Hugh Lanham, Prospective Parliamentary Candidate Norwich North
I would not have stood as a candidate in this election if I wasn’t angry.
I am angry about Brexit
I see real fear and uncertainty in people affected by Brexit. Those working in foreign countries, those selling their goods and services throughout the Union and those whose prospects are just ripped from them by an unknown future. I see real costs for all ordinary people from the devaluation of the pound, from inflation eroding people’s savings and spending power.
Most of all, I see few benefits from Brexit for anyone. There is, of course, no £350m for the NHS and, apart from ‘sovereignty’ which means we have all the same laws but with a picture of a crown on top, one of the most significant immediate changes is a bill of £100bn. But, I believe the Tories are going to blunder on regardless.
If we ever get the opportunity to reverse the decision to leave the European Union I would vote in support of that.
