I've been receiving a lot of mail from constituents asking me to vote for a second referendum and a lot of mail asking me to rule one out. I plan to reply to everyone, but here's how I see things for now.
Based on the canvassing I did locally and the samples taken at the count, I reckon Ilford North split right down the middle - at best it was 51% for Remain and 49% for Leave. I think people would be justifiably angry if Parliament tried to ignore the result and that it would further erode trust in politics.
There would have to be overwhelming evidence that Leave voters have 'buyer's remorse' and were demanding a second referendum in huge numbers to justify a second referendum. There is no evidence of that yet.
I plan to do everything I can to make this path work for our country. I stand by the warnings I have before the referendum and I am particularly worried about Ilford North residents whose jobs are linked to Britain's membership of the European Union. I will be meeting with business leaders and trades unions. I have already met with the CEO of Barclays Bank, Jes Staley, to get his take on the likely impact on our economy, our financial services industry and the steps that the UK needs to take to keep London's position as a global success story.
We now need clear leadership and for people to work together across the political divide to address the big questions that face our country as we chart a new course in the world.
I will work my socks off for you in the coming days, weeks and months and keep in touch as things develop.
