East Midlands MEP Andrew Lewer

“I welcome the UK’s – and in particular the East Midlands’ – truly remarkable and historic decision to leave the European Union.

“It seems a long time since I carefully weighed up the remain and leave arguments and decided “on balance” to vote and campaign against staying in the EU. 

“There’s no doubt the outcome has come as a shock to many – not least the financial markets. It is important that we act carefully and reasonably to plan and negotiate our exit. I do not believe the “Leave” vote means we are turning our back on our European neighbours. Rather, we have chosen to take control our own destiny and reject the ever-closer union that was the EU project. “
