Mike, Rosalia and unicornsMythical beasts were the main attraction at the "Stop Brexit" stall in Saffron Walden on Saturday 13th July. Local Lib Dems were talking to residents about the fairy-tale proposals of the Conservative leadership candidates, and publicising the big March For Change in London on Saturday 20th July.

A lot of people are worried that both Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt would be prepared to take us out of the EU without a deal. "That would really damage our economy and our international reputation" said Hilary Shibata. "It's a myth that they can renegotiate Brexit, or have tariff-free trade if we crash out without a deal. Those are very dangerous unicorns to believe in! Many people are already feeling the effects of Brexit on their jobs, their lives, and their future choices. There's a big difference between people who feel themselves shielded in the short term, and those already feeling the impact."
