Should Camden’s councillors debate Brexit?

IT’S the first full council meeting in the temporary Town Hall at the Crowndale Centre  this evening and councillors will – if the meeting is managed for time – be put on the spot about how they feel about a second referendum on Brexit.

Two motions – one from the Lib Dems, then one from Labour – will bring the debate in front of them, including the idea of remaining in the EU being on a people’s vote ballot paper.

It’s not gone down well with Conservative leader Oliver Cooper, a Leave supporter, who says councillors should be prioritising debates and motions on local issues rather than foreign policy.

The pre-meeting warm-up was in the CNJ last week – here – and you can see and hear Cllr Cooper’s view from a conference interview below:
