Matt Warman, MP for Boston and Skegness, has called for the UK’s negotiations to exit the European Union to be carried out with as little disruption as possible, following today’s win for the Leave campaign.
The final results were 52 per cent of the votes for leave and 48 per cent for remain, with a national turnout of 72 per cent.
Matt commented, “Britain has decided to gamble on Brexit – while I personally took the view that it wasn’t a risk I wanted to take, I’ve also said it was one person one vote, and a gamble that could pay off. The Government now has a duty to make sure exit negotiations with Europe are as painless as possible. I very much respect the will of voters in our region and across the country, and we have a long road ahead of us. Changes won’t be seen overnight, but I look forward to working with colleagues from Lincolnshire and within Government to make sure that the inevitable uncertainty does not cause the predicted economic damage to people’s jobs and livelihoods. We do now have a chance to change immigration policies and our trading arrangements; I hope that those do result in the promised improvements that Brexit campaigners suggested – as the Prime Minister himself has said, Britain can prosper outside the EU.”
