Today we celebrate our INDEPENDENCE DAY

As the sun rose on a victorious result for Vote Leave in the EU Referendum, Jill Seymour said: “This is a momentous day for Britain, and I’m so proud that people had the courage to vote for change, and the determination to take back control.

“But this is not a time for celebration – the hard work now starts. We need to roll up our sleeves and work on a cross-party basis to begin the task of repatriating decision-making powers from Brussels.

“The result sends a clear message to the powers at Westminster that people have become completely disenfranchised with their politics, and that the politicians have become completely detached from the issues which really concern the working man and woman.

“I have always believed that Britain is big enough and strong enough to stand on its own two feet, and to truly thrive when freed from the shackles of EU bureaucracy. Now we have the opportunity to prove it.

“June 23 will go down in history as our Independence Day – and for me, it’s very emotional.

“I would like to say a huge, heartfelt thank-you to everyone who has given up so much time on the campaign trail to help to make this once-in-a-lifetime day possible.”
