“ Should the UK rejoin the EU?” | Ed & Layla Q&A
As leadership voting opened this week POLITICO sent both contenders 'quick-fire' questions including " Should the UK rejoin the EU?"
On that Ed replied: "I'll always believe our best place is in the EU, but our job now is to convince the country of that. If the opportunity ever arises for us to rejoin, and we can take the public with us, I'll be at the frontline of that fight."
While Layla responded: "I would love to rejoin the EU, and I believe we will in years to come, but we must make the positive case to the public and win the hearts and minds of voters first. In the short term, my priority is to work cross-party to prevent a devastating no-deal Brexit at the end of the year."
