Brexit: A Sad Day for Europe but not the End of Europe, Say S&Ds

Brexit: A sad day for Europe but not the end of Europe, say S&Ds

Following the result of the UK referendum, the Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament have expressed their regret but also their respect for the choice of the British people.

S&D MEPs will continue working hard for a more integrated European Union and clearly state they want the United Kingdom as a partner if they agree to comply with EU laws.

The EU must now define its new relationship with the UK as it has to define a new political agenda to reinforce its cohesion, with a special focus on the upcoming social challenges: ending social dumping and unfair tax competition, fighting austerity with a stability and growth pact, and establishing a proper relocation system for refugees.
