As you know the UK has decided to leave the European Union, a decision which we are both saddened and disappointed by.
However, in the midst of fast moving events we wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who came out to support the campaign during the Referendum. Many helped with leafleting and direct mail, attended debates with us and shared information on social media. We also walked lots of miles with so many of you at campaigning sessions on the doorstep, and it was great to meet new faces as well as catching up with old friends.
We are very grateful for all your hard work however you helped us and though history was not on our side we know that you could not have done more to support the campaign.
Until the UK finally leaves the EU we will continue to work hard in the coming months to represent the interests of the North East in the European Parliament.
