A South Lakes councillor has launched a petition calling on Westmorland and Lonsdale’s MP not to block Brexit.
In a few weeks’ time MPs will be voting on Brexit again, on laws that are essential to make leaving the EU a reality, and councillor Tom Harvey is asking people to sign a petition asking Tim Farron to use his votes in Parliament to respect the national referendum result.
Councillor Tom Harvey said: “Tim Farron and his Liberal Democrat friends in the House of Lords have already tried to block Brexit and to make it harder to leave the EU. Now MPs will be asked to vote to over-rule the Lords and support the Brexit deal we need.
“I know many people on the Remain side feel strongly. But equally many people who voted Remain want our MP to respect democracy and move forward as a nation. The national referendum outcome was clear and Tim Farron must respect the result.
“If you agree that our MP shouldn’t use his votes in Parliament to block Brexit, then please sign the petition.”
