Bath for Europe: Beliefs and Aims

Bath and NE Somerset is a diverse, inclusive and welcoming part of the country, which owes much of its prosperity to our membership of the EU.

On June 23, 2016, Bath voted decisively in favour of staying in the EU.

Parliament has voted to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, confirming the UK’s decision to leave the EU and beginning the process of withdrawal. The government hopes this process will take two years. Some critics argue it could take much longer.

Other political processes may determine the eventual settlement.

Whatever the future holds, Bath for Europe is clear. We will continue to campaign to stay in the EU.

Bath for Europe believes that

  • Our current relationship with the EU is better than any conceivable alternative we might negotiate if we leave it
  • The UK must retain membership of EU institutions; and work for their reform where this is needed
  • Any future change to our relationship with the EU should be subject to full scrutiny and debate by Parliament and put to the people in either a general election or a further referendum.
