Yesterday the people of Cambridge overwhelmingly voted to remain members of the European Union. I am so proud of our city. Thank you for everything you did to help the campaign. Of course, I am deeply saddened that the result in Cambridge was not replicated across the country.
I know across Cambridge many people are aghast at what has happened, as indeed are progressive people across the rest of the country and Europe.
Together we must seek to rebuild bridges.
Today I feel disappointed and know many are apprehensive. I don’t think this is the right direction for our country. The Conservatives are already making life harder for people through their ideological cuts and assault on our public services. Now, outside the EU, with an even more right wing prime minister, life will get tougher still.
Once again, thank you for your support, I am sorry it is not the result we wanted.
