Caroline Lucas: Brexit TV debate must be cross-party
2 December 2018
Calling on broadcasters to include the Green Party in any TV debate on the Government's Brexit deal, Caroline Lucas MP said:
"It's good to hear the Prime Minister is considering reaching out to the public with a TV debate on her bungled Brexit deal. But for this conversation about our collective future to have any semblance of democracy, it must represent the views of everyone.
"That means it must be cross-party, featuring a diverse range of voices representing every nation, as well as every stance on this deal and our relationship with the EU - not just the Government and an opposition party who are falling far short of actually opposing the Prime Minister's approach.
"I stand ready to debate with all other parties, and make the case that a People's Vote is now the only democratic way forward."
