A former Eastbourne MP has spoken of his disappointment in the EU Referendum result.
Stephen Lloyd, who was hoping for an In result on Thursday (23 June), has wished the opposite side well in their national – and local – victory and has pledged to work with them to help move the country forward.
He thinks everyone should put aside their differences and work together for the good of the country, whether the referendum result was what they wanted or not.
Speaking to Eastbourne Buzz about whether he thought a new national petition, which has been launched to try and force a second EU referendum should be supported, Stephen said, “I have always been very clear that I supported a vote to Remain in the EU and I am disappointed to have lost, albeit by a small margin. However, I am first and foremost a passionate believer in democracy and consequently believe we must honour the result of June 23.”
