Rachel Maclean on Brexit Day: "It's time to move forward"

Harry Leach 31st Jan, 2020

“It’s time our country unites and moves forward together” – that was the verdict of Redditch MP Rachel Maclean on Brexit day.

At 11pm this evening the UK will be leaving the EU.

Mrs Maclean, who has voted to deliver Brexit at every turn, said: “After years of delay and indecision, the outcome of the 2016 referendum is finally being delivered.

“No matter how you voted nearly four years-ago, it’s now time our country unites and moves forward together.

“I’m certain we are more united and have more in common than we like to believe.

“Parliament may have been gridlocked and divided for three years, but outside of Westminster life continued, friendships endured and everyday people continued to do good things, to support one another and to help those in need.”

Mrs Maclean called Brexit a historic day for the United Kingdom and said she hopes Redditch will be optimistic and ambitious for the future of the country.
