The EGM unanimously agreed to the proposed changes in the Constitution under the provision of the inclusion of the Gibraltar Socialist Labour Party in paragraph 8 and Labour International in paragraph 28. The new LME Constitution can be found here.
There was lively debate about the proposed Brexit campaign plan.
The Labour Movement for Europe campaigned vigorously for the United Kingdom to remain a member of the European Union, believing that EU membership was good for jobs, investment, peace and prosperity. However, a majority of British electors voted to leave the EU. The Government therefore has a mandate to negotiate leaving the EU, but no mandate to agree terms that will damage the United Kingdom and its people. One thing is however clear: UK voters did not vote to be poorer or less protected.
