Dear Sheffield for Europe members and supporters,
We are all shocked and devastated by the election result, and we do not yet know what the consequences will be for the remain campaign nationally, or for local groups such as ours.
We would like to thank all of you who campaigned so tirelessly over the last few weeks to try to ensure that there was a majority in Parliament for a Peoples Vote. It is devastating to have lost by so large a margin, and to see so many good and dedicated MPs lose their seats. We are so sorry that all this work was not able to make the difference that was needed in the key marginals of the region. But we tried.
We will need some time to reflect on these results, and to see where we go from here. We will meet soon to start this discussion. In the meantime, take care of yourselves and enjoy the holiday season.
Sheffield for Europe
