The EU referendum

As the British people absorb the result of the EU referendum, it is worth noting that Woking overall voted to remain in the EU, while the UK as a whole chose to leave. We respect everybody’s views in this complex issue and will continue working to highlight and campaign for the issues affecting the people of Woking and its surrounding areas.

There will no doubt be many challenges ahead for working people, their families and communities. We must all pull together to face those challenges. We have heard that David Cameron is to resign and we know the markets have reacted badly and the pound has fallen significantly. Our goal must be to protect and secure the rights afforded to us by Europe and to stand firm against any attempt to undermine those hard won rights.
