Our government has too much power, and the Brexit process is handing them even more.
We need a Democratic Brexit, not an establishment Brexit. If the Prime Minister is serious about wanting to heal divisions in the country, she must put the people first. Taking back control doesn't that the government decides what's best for our future behind closed doors.
What is a Democratic Brexit?
Brexit is about our future - we should help shape it. Exiting the EU is much more than a technical process. The demands we make and the things we prioritise will decide what kind of country we want to be. There hasn’t been a proper debate about what future we want for workers rights, the environment or trade deals since the referendum, but the government is using the vote to impose their own will on all of these.
A Democratic Brexit would mean a transparent plan, ways for the public to help set the negotiating principles and Parliament being given the information they need to properly scrutinise the process.
The biggest part of the process, the Repeal Bill will be voted on by MPs in autumn.
