Dear

A People’s Vote

Since the EU Referendum in 2016, a lot of new information has come to light about what impact Brexit will have. For example, I now know that there won’t be an extra £350 million a week for the NHS – as was written on the Vote Leave bus. Instead, Brexit means staffing shortages for the NHS and less funding, as the Government’s own figures show that the economy will shrink.

Leaving the EU will have such a seismic impact on our country, that it is perfectly reasonable and democratic for people to be given the chance to vote on the terms of the Brexit deal. This would be a much more informed choice than what voters like me were faced with in June 2016. Popular support for a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal is increasing, according to polls. For any Member of Parliament to ignore the will of the people at this crucial time increasingly looks like putting political expediency and personal ambition above the interests of their constituents, both now and for generations to come.

Throughout Hertfordshire there is now significant support for a People’s Vote on the terms of whatever deal is put before Parliament. That support is drawn from across the political spectrum and from people of all ages and economic backgrounds. I urge you, as a Hertfordshire MP, to listen to our voices and uphold the principles of a mature democracy by supporting our call for a People’s Vote.

Yours sincerely

[NAME]
