Julie spoke in Parliament about what the right response is for Sunderland, Scotland and the United Kingdom as a whole should be, following the ‘no’ vote in the Scottish Referendum.
Julie criticised David Cameron for his ‘quick fix’ on the morning after the Referendum result, which seemed to come from nowhere.
“This debate is a result of the Scottish referendum. Whereas I totally support the implementation of what was promised to the Scottish people, we need to look for practical political solutions that deal with the real issues for England and the other parts of the United Kingdom and address the real inequalities. They need addressing and they need addressing now”
