Following its 7 June branch meeting, inviting members of the French Parti Socialiste to share views on the French Presidential and Parliamentary elections, Brussels Labour welcomes Labour’s gains in the 8 June general election.
During the branch meeting, entitled “A tale of two parliaments; the elections in France and the UK and what they could mean for Europe” attendees discussed the elections in both countries.
The results of the election show Theresa May has no mandate for a reckless Tory hard Brexit. Labour’s gains show the demand for a progressive, hopeful and positive government, which only Labour can deliver.
Brussels Labour calls for a Brexit that takes the views of the 48% of the population who voted to remain in the European Union into account, and don’t wish for a destructive and divisive hard Brexit.
Finally, Brussels Labour would like to thank all those party members and activists who fought so hard for these significant parliamentary gains for the Labour Party.
