Government loses vote on secret Brexit reports

Published on by

MPs last night passed a motion ordering the government to release 58 secret assessments into the economic damage from Brexit. But Ministers have caused a furious backlash by refusing to say if they will abide by the motion, even though Parliamentary clerks advised that the decision was “binding”. The Government had been fighting to keep […]

The secret Brexit files must be released

Published on by

The government has commissioned 58 secret reports on the economic impact of Brexit, but has refused to make them public. The comprehensive studies have been prepared by experts into the likely effects of various Brexit terms on different sectors comprising around 90% per cent of the UK economy. Today Prime Minister Theresa May was under […]

David Davis doesn’t understand negotiating or the EU

Published on by

Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has said that Britain won’t hold ANY Brexit talks unless the EU drops its demands for €100bn in payments it claims are due. It’s now more than likely that Britain will leave the EU without any agreement in place, which of course will be disastrous. Unfortunately, David Davis has shown he […]

Theresa May is throwing away the Tory legacy

Published on by

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, seems to be in a desperate hurry. She wants to break-away from the EU within two years of triggering Article 50, and to have a new EU trade deal in place at the same time. That’s something top EU lawyer, Jean-Claude Piris, said will be ‘totally impossible.’ Next, Mrs May […]

Mrs May: Acting against the national interest?

Published on by

Prime Minister Theresa May is determined to take Britain on a course to Brexit, but only six months ago she said it wouldn’t be in the country’s interest to do so. Mrs May, then Home Secretary, said in a pro-Remain speech in April 2016: “I believe it is clearly in our national interest to remain […]

It’s not undemocratic to challenge Brexit

Published on by

There is nothing else like it on the internet: the unique and growing portfolio of over 300 graphics and articles continuing to present the case every day for Britain to remain in the EU. I started the Reasons2Remain Facebook Community Campaign on Monday 4 April 2016. With a small team of supporters, for the following 11 […]

The Brexit Bodge: What they said

Published on by

  The EU referendum was only a week ago, and already the false claims and promises of ‘Leave’ campaigners are painfully unravelling. THEY SAID that outside the EU, Britain could control migration. This would relieve on public services. – BUT NOW they’re saying that leaving the EU can’t radically reduce migration and that fears about […]

100% sovereignty means Britain losing power

Published on by

The definition of sovereignty is ‘supreme power or authority’. Only one country in the world has that. North Korea. But whilst North Korea has cast iron sovereignty over its nation and people, in the outside world it has very little power, authority or influence. In the modern, rational, democratic world, countries recognise that sharing some […]

It’s their country they want back, not yours

Published on by

‘We want our country back!’ is the clarion cry of many who want Britain to leave the European Union. But whose country do they want back exactly? Your country? My country? Or really, just their country? Before we leave the European Union and possibly change our country forever, we need to have an idea what […]

The problem with Brexit

Published on by

A straightforward comparison between Britain remaining in the EU and leaving isn’t possible. That’s because we know what ‘Remain’ in the EU means – it’s the status quo and we’ve experienced it for four decades. But Leave? Nobody knows; nobody can say for sure. Even those campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union cannot […]
