Medical staff all agree Brexit is bad for our health

September 2, 2018 10:30 AM

Medical professionals all agree that leaving the European Union with - as seems inevitable - no deal or at best an extremely poor one - is going to be bad for our NHS.

On 29th August the Royal College of Nursing issued a statement in which they said that a bad Brexit deal "would jeopardise safe patient care." This follows on the heels of the British Medical Association passing a motion at their annual conference opposing Brexit and supporting membership of the single market. They also called for the public to have a vote on the final deal.

The Royal College of Midwives have similarly backed a people's vote. Their chief executive Gill Walton said:

"When that final deal is struck, someone will have to decide whether or not it is good enough, whether it honours the promises made to the electorate two years ago.

"It is my belief that that decision should not rest with a few hundred people in Westminster, but with the tens of millions of British voters whose lives will be changed forever by it.

"This will be far too big a decision to be left to the politicians alone. We, the people, must decide in a people's vote."

The Liberal Democrats believe that Britain is better off in the EU. That's why we're fighting for an Exit from Brexit.

The Conservatives are making a mess of Brexit, and the Labour leadership continue to support them. The Liberal Democrats want to give you the final say on the Brexit deal.

You should be able to choose whether the deal is the right deal for Britain's future. If it's not, then you should be able to reject it and remain in the European Union.

So who do you trust on this? Prime Minister Theresa May and her backstabbing fellow leave leaders who are more interested in their own careers than the future of this country? Or the medical professionals we count on to look after our loved ones and ourselves day in day out?
