John, today in Manchester, I gave a speech I hoped I’d never have to give. To mark a date we hoped would never come. Britain will leave the EU tomorrow.
Before we do, I want to pay tribute to everything you have done. You have campaigned, marched and fought for four years and built a nationwide movement. So for everything you have done, thank you.
But our European story doesn’t end tomorrow.
We know that we are so much stronger working together, across borders, to tackle the big issues - like the climate crisis and international crime networks. Challenges we simply cannot tackle alone.
We know that there are many more battles to fight too. We may be leaving, but our future relationship with Europe is far from decided.
We will keep on fighting to prevent a no-deal Brexit and for the closest possible relationship with the EU.
But the idea that Brexit will solve what’s wrong with Britain will be revealed as fantasy soon enough.
For too many people, things aren’t working as they should be. Too much wealth is in the hands of the already wealthy. Too much power is in the hands of the already powerful.
We need a real plan, to make sure that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can earn enough to get by, live in a decent home and have the chance to live a happy, full and fulfilling life.
That’s what we’re fighting for. But to get there, we need you with us.
