BREXIT: It’s time for unity and co-operation says MP Rob Wilson

Rob Wilson vote

Now is the time for unity and co-operation – that’s the verdict from Reading East MP Rob Wilson.

He was writing in response to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union after Thursday’s referendum.

Mr Wilson, who serves as a Government minister, represents parts of Wokingham borough that fall within his Reading East boundaries, including Woodley and Earley.

He said of LEAVE’s win: “It is incumbent on all politicians to do their utmost to make it work for the country, whatever reservations they may have had in the past.

“I know that many might be disappointed with the result; especially those who have worked tirelessly during the campaign for something in which they passionately believe.

“Now is the time for unity and co-operation; we must all accept the outcome of the referendum and work together to tackle the challenges that remain.

“I look forward to working with colleagues towards securing the long-term future of our great country.”

Mr Wilson also praised outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron, who announced his resignation on Friday morning.

He wrote: “The Prime Minister has served our country with dignity, compassion and understanding, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so over the next few months. It’s absolutely right that he remain in position to steady the ship and deliver a period of stability, having demonstrated his ability to do so over the past six years.”

We all accept the results but the Tories have to remember that you can’t just ignore the 48% who voted to stay in. There has to be a compromise that means we can’t just have a hard Brexit because of right wing Tories. The decision we make about Europe will impact at least a generation and because of this Government’s incompetence we may be saddled with a £50bn plus bill for leaving. Should the 48% in the interest of unity sit quietly and watch the Tories bring us to our knees
