Thank you to everyone who worked or voted for candidates and parties who supported a People's Vote in the election on December 12th.

The results were not what we hoped for and we will be publishing some analysis and comment in the near future.

In a democracy there is no requirement for the losers in an election to change their minds. The Government have a right to govern and everyone has a right to think as they choose.

North East for Europe will continue to press for the closest possible relationship with countries of the European Union and will continue to support and press for the rights of all those who live in the North East, irrespective of nationality.
