Brexit debate comes to Cirencester

Two Cotswold MP's turned up the heat on the burning Brexit issues in a special debate held at Aura Care  Living's Stratton Court.

The retirement village and care home played host to the lively debate, with Cheltenham MP Alex Chalk representing remain and Cotswold stalwart Sir Geoffrey Clifton Brown MP talking from the exit side of the discussion.

This was part of the Cirencester Business Club breakfast, with over 40 in attendance to listen to the issues that will affect the Cotswolds and the country as a whole when a deal is eventually done, although at present Prime Minister Theresa May is looking to extend the transition period to beyond 2020.

Sir Geoffrey said: "There were so many here as it is the burning issue at the moment. Agriculture, commerce, the Irish border and international trade are all items we discussed with Alex (Chalk) and I agreeing on many, we are colleagues after all."

Aura care Living's CEO Linda Lloyd was also impressed with the turn out and discussion, "It was interesting to hear so many different views on Brexit. The Prime Minister has been in Brussels this week trying to thrash out a deal and I agree with Sir Geoffrey that we need to get behind her, a change in leader at this time will not help and we need to show unity in so many different ways - as Britain as a whole."
