What does Brexit mean for our environment?
As the uncertainty of Britain’s Brexit negotiations continues, local campaigner Andrew George offers a further public meeting to inform and engage local people about the impact/opportunities ahead.
The next meeting will take place next week in St John’s Hall Penzance and will include Molly Scott-Cato (Green Party MEP) and Cllr Sue James (Liberal Democrat Environment Portfolio Holder on Cornwall Council). Other speakers have been invited.
Andrew George, who has arranged 6 previous public events to inform and debate Brexit since the Government’s Brexit Deal had been negotiated, explained:
“The Government has led the country to Brexit chaos, deepened divisions and has made the UK the laughingstock of the world.
“What does Brexit mean for the environment? Would the UK do better on its own? Or is it better to cooperate across Europe – to improve environmental protections and combat climate change?
“Most people are perplexed. Uncertain whether Brexit will happen. Large numbers want Brexit to be stopped. Others to just want to go ahead with no deal! If Parliament can’t decide should the deal be put to the People in a confirmatory vote? We’ll ask those who attend the meeting.”
