    The Brexit Crisis and stepping down on a high note

    A decade ago we all knew that there was an economic crisis. Banks were collapsing. Credit was drying up. Bankruptcies. Job losses. Escalating budget deficits. A big drop in the currency. You didn't need a Nobel Prize in economics to realise that something was terribly amiss. It was the biggest financial crisis in over a century, and the biggest drop in production and incomes since the interwar period.

    It's time to stop Brexit

    Join us on Saturday 20th of July, as we march for our place in the EU - and tell the new Prime Minister to put a halt to this Brexit mess.

    When we think of great moments of political upheaval, social change and protests for justice, the images which often come to mind are marches. There is something acutely powerful about seeing so many come together to create, for one moment in time, a community of like-minded people. A crowd which passionately believes in a common cause will have its cause noticed. Marches become beacons of free speech and spawn mass movements which captivate people's attention.

    The petition to revoke Article 50 has broken records again - by becoming the largest in history to be presented to parliament - with still a month to go.

    The petition was already the biggest petition on the official parliament e-petition website.

    It has almost 6.1 million signatures - nearly 13% of the electorate - with still a month to go until the official deadline.

    A climate and ecology emergency has been declared in Chelmsford. This was voted through at a meeting of Chelmsford City Council last night (Tuesday 16 July). The move comes as a growing number of UK councils have formally recognised the urgent need to reduce global temperature increases if we are to avert major disaster.

    Mythical beasts were the main attraction at the "Stop Brexit" stall in Saffron Walden on Saturday 13th July. Local Lib Dems were talking to residents about the fairy-tale proposals of the Conservative leadership candidates, and publicising the big March For Change in London on Saturday 20th July.

    A lot of people are worried that both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt would be prepared to take us out of the EU without a deal. "That would really damage our economy and our international reputation" said Hilary Shibata. "It's a myth that they can renegotiate Brexit, or have tariff-free trade if we crash out without a deal. Those are very dangerous unicorns to believe in! Many people are already feeling the effects of Brexit on their jobs, their lives, and their future choices. There's a big difference between people who feel themselves shielded in the short term, and those already feeling the impact."

    This will be followed by a wake at the Chalkwell Park Rooms in Chalkwell Park, Leigh-on-Sea. As well as refreshments and general conversation there will be a chance for people to share their memories of Chris. We hope that friends will bring their thoughts and stories and be prepared to share them if they would like to.

We believe that YOU should have the final say on the EU exit deal, not a Westminster stitch up. Let's give the people the final say.
