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 […]

Tory hard Brexit puts two Unions at risk

Published on by

This week the Conservative Party tweeted Theresa May’s statement: ‘Sturgeon’s plan to leave the UK – Scotland’s biggest market – would mean economic chaos.’ The Prime Minister doesn’t seem to get it, does she? Exactly the same arguments also apply to her plan to leave the EU as well as its Single Market – the UK’s […]

Two-faced Theresa

Published on by

Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, has pledged to take the country out of the European Union. But before last year’s referendum on 23 June, Ms May was a firm advocate against Brexit and for Britain remaining in the EU. Can we trust a prime minister whose principles blow so easily in the wind? Is this […]

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 […]

Britain has more vacancies than Britons to fill them

Published on by

Britain has more job vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need migrants. The country has a chronic skills shortage and without migrants helping to fill that gap, Britain – and Britons – would be poorer. Britain now has more people at work than ever before. […]

The best EU trade deal? We already have it.

Published on by

In Parliament last week, our new and unelected Prime Minister, Mrs Theresa May, said she wanted “the best possible arrangement for trade” with the European Union. Which is exactly what we have now. In America they have a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. So why does Mrs May want to fix something […]

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 […]

The EU is not the USSR

Published on by

A Brexiteer in the BBC Question Time audience last Thursday compared the EU to the Soviet Union. It’s an entirely false and unfounded comparison. There is absolutely no resemblance between the EU and the USSR. Such comparisons are reckless, childish and nonsensical. It shows no understanding or respect for those people who truly suffered and […]

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 […]
