“We're going to have to live with the consequences of this decision for decades to come, and it will affect young people most of all."
Caroline Lucas, MP
We're being let down by a Tory government that's driving through a dangerous hard Brexit.
Caroline believes that:
- An extreme Brexit will be a disaster for Britain
- The Government's slogan of "Get Brexit done", and unachievable promises of doing a trade deal with the EU in a few months, is setting us up for crash-out Brexit at the end of this year
- Brexit is being used to trash environmental protections and workers' rights
Opposing Tory plans
Caroline has been steadfast in her opposition to the Tories' Brexit agenda. She has consistently voted against the Government's damaging deal and is campaigning to protect EU citizens who've built their lives here, workers' rights, freedom of movement, animals and environmental protections no matter what happens with Brexit.
Working to address the causes of Brexit
Caroline believes many people were right to use the 2016 referendum to give the establishment a kicking - because the status quo is intolerable for far too many. She believes people wanted to "take back control" in their own lives and communities, but the Tory government will not deliver this.
She is proposing democratic reforms to empower communities and find shared solutions to issues such as inequality, austerity and deindustrialisation.
