Thurrock votes against the EU

People’s Pledge organisers should be congratulated alongside RMT and No2EU for organising a successful referendum on the EU in Thurrock. Voters in Thurrock were the first in the country to be given the opportunity of voting as to whether they wanted a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU. The results below demonstrate that an overwhelming majority of voters do want a referendum. In addition, the voting figures in a constituency with traditionally one of the lowest turn-out records in the country, demonstrates the genuine appeal of the campaign. It also shows that when people are given the opportunity to vote about issues they care about, they do so – and in large numbers.
Numbers voting agree: 13,111 (89.9%)
Numbers voting disagree: 1,479 (10.1%)
Ballots cast: 14,590
Turn out: 30.39%
Over ten thousand Thurrock voters also signed the pledge, further increasing the pressure on the sitting Tory MP and her Labour challenger.

EU Is still trying to rule Britain, Barnier tries demanding EU vessels have access to British waters otherwise there will be exclusion from EU markets; that there is a risk of a no deal. We must have sovereign rights over our fishing grounds.

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!
