We’ve received a phenomenal response to our campaign to get pro-Remain Conservative MPs deselected. Clearly, thousands of party members are aggrieved by their representatives in Parliament and are eager to do something about it.
We are making a major appeal for volunteers as we bear down on these manipulative MPs to counteract their expanding anti-Brexit campaign in Parliament, sending a shockwave through the Conservative Party’s hierarchy.
This campaign is aimed primarily at existing party members who joined the Conservatives at least three months ago. However, non-members can still help make a difference. If you’re not yet a card-carrying Conservative, we encourage you to sign up via the following link.
If you’ve not been following your local MP’s activity, we suggest you click this link to find out if they voted for Theresa May’s dismal deal last week. You can check whether they’ve committed the even greater sin of voting for Labour MP Yvette Cooper’s initial amendment to obstruct No Deal by clicking here.
If your MP is either from the opposition or one of the few voices for a sovereign withdrawal from the EU, as always we’d be very pleased to hear from you, but please bear in mind, this initiative is focused on the many constituents represented by the party in government who see little evidence of the direct mandate to leave the European Union being implemented. If you have a friend or family member who you think meets these criteria, please forward this email onto them.
If on the other hand, you are one such constituent, why not get involved and make a difference? We’re currently in the process of assembling individual campaigns across the country, we need all the volunteers we can muster. Please get in touch and help rescue the referendum.
In economic news: As the Remain campaign ramps up its efforts to spread fear about massive tailbacks at Calais and sudden increases in tariffs in the event of No Deal, it emerges the WTO provides the means for an interim trade arrangement retaining preferential access to each other’s markets until a permanent arrangement can be agreed. Read Leave.EU’s examination of Article 24 here and a rundown of leaving on WTO terms here.
Also in the economy update, the boss of the port of Calais says he “will be ready for no deal”, to believe otherwise (as Remainers persistently do), is “shocking” and “disrespectful”.
New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern declares it’s “quality, not quantity”, a direct riposte to those who lust over the EU’s larger, yet declining market.
On top of all that are the usual good news statistics: employment is up, wages are up against low inflation, confidence among hiring managers is also up. Britain remains head and shoulders above the rest of Europe for investment, receiving more than France and Germany combined. Brexit is considered an afterthought against all the huge advantages of doing business in Britain, and the relative weakness of continental Europe.
