Vote Remain for Britain – Labour’s national leaders come together in eve of poll rally
Jeremy Corbyn was today joined by Sadiq Khan, Carwyn Jones, Kezia Dugdale and Alan Johnson at an eve of poll rally.
The event in London – Labour’s ‘Rally to Remain’ – saw the national leaders say that voting Remain is the best choice for the country as Labour makes a final call to action ahead of voting on Thursday.
Jeremy Corbyn said:
“Throughout our history, the people of Britain have looked outwards, and for ways to work with others to improve the lives of our fellow citizens and the world around us. It is this commitment to delivering real change for all which forged the Labour Party.
“We believe Britain is better off in the European Union, not because we don’t think Europe needs reform – it clearly does – but because it offers the best cross-border framework that we have to defend living standards, rights and protections for all our people.
By voting to remain we can protect jobs linked to Europe, defend workers’ rights from Tory leaders who want to scrap them, and safeguard our NHS from the threat of runaway Tory cuts and privatisation.
“So I urge Labour supporters this Thursday: do what’s best for our people. Vote for jobs, rights at work and our NHS. Vote Remain.”
Alan Johnson said:
“We are just hours away from the biggest decision of a generation, does Britain Remain in the European Union, or do we leave.
“That's why our four Labour leaders have come together to issue a rallying call to remain. On the eve of this momentous decision Labour is clear that a vote to Remain is a vote to protect jobs, rights at work and Britain’s role in the world.
“A vote to leave will plunge our country into turmoil and uncertainty. Far from regaining control we would lose it; over trade, our economy and future accessions to the EU.
“With three million British jobs linked to our trade with Europe, Labour is united in campaigning for every vote across all four corners of Britain to keep Britain in Europe.”
