MU General Secretary Horace Trubridge stated:

"The Conservative Government has completely failed to resolve the Brexit mess. It would be unacceptable for them to simply change their figurehead and carry on as they have been."

The MU continues to support revoking Article 50 or a People’s Vote in the first instance, as we cannot support any Brexit deal that limits freedom of movement for our members.
