There has to be a #compromise

Following the events in the House of Commons, New Europeans has repeated our call to MPs to back the compromise proposal put foward by our members and activists in an open letter to Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and the European Union on 4 February.

The open letter called on MPs to back the withdrawal agreement in return for a confirmatory referendum on the final deal.

Over the past two months, New Europeans has worked tirelessly to generate consensus around the #compromise proposal which has been taken up by MPs Dame Margaret Beckett, Phil Wilson and Peter Kyle.

The proposal was debated on Wednesday, 27 March and Monday, 1 April during the debates on the "indicative votes" in the House of Commons and was only narrowly defeated. 

How MPs voted on 1 April

It is expected to return to the House of Commons for further debate on Wednesday, 3 April.

We are asking all those who support the compromise proposal to write to the MPs who have abstained last week, asking them to support the MOTION E (Confirmatory Public Vote - Kyle/Wilson) when it returs to the House of Commons on Monday.

This may be the final chance to secure a confirmatory referendum before Britain crashes out of the EU without a deal or faces the prospect of a long delay to Brexit and the prospect of a General Election.
