Futures Forum: 'Let's really take control' >>> The New Economics Foundation launches campaign
This is the the latest from the NEF:
This is a stunning and welcome development. But the control of Brexit must not end with our politicians.
We now need an open and honest debate about the future of our country and the urgent questions we face. What should our place be in relation to the single market? What is the future of free movement of people? How can we maintain the environmental and social protections that membership of the EU has given us for so long? And, perhaps most importantly of all, how can we bring people together again when they have been so deeply divided by all of these issues and more.
These questions must not be resolved behind closed doors, either in Number 10 or in the Houses of Parliament themselves. They must be resolved in the country, with a clear sense of the options and vibrant public discussion.
Just over three weeks ago I launched the Foundation’s new agenda for change. We brought community workers, campaigners, trade unionists and politicians from all the major parties together to show how we can give people the tools they need to take real control of these important national debates.
Now I’m delighted to share with you a video of my closing speech - please click here to watch it, share it and help us really take control:
