Molly Scott Cato, as the Green Party's Brexit spokesperson, has criticised the Labour Party's 'confused and contradictory' manifesto promises on Brexit. Bristol West, the constituency in which Molly is standing for Parliament, voted 80% in favouring of Remain in the European Union Referendum. She said: "Labour just can't decide where it wants to stand on Brexit. The promises my counterpart Keir Starmer made about fighting to keep Britain in the Single Market have been totally undermined by the Party's manifesto. Labour is once again aping the Tories in its manifesto pledge to sacrifice our economy and Single Market membership on the altar of ending freedom of movement."
"A ratification referendum is the chance to give back control."
The Green Party today pledged to offer the nation a chance to vote to remain in the EU if they do not like the deal on offer at the end of the negotiation period between the UK and the EU. Co-leader, Caroline Lucas MP and Bristol West candidate, Molly Scott Cato MEP, pledged a ‘ratification referendum’ providing people a clear choice between accepting the deal on offer at the end of the Article 50 process or remaining a member of the EU. They said this will not be a re-run of the in-out referendum but will be a vote about the ratification process.
