The Battle for Brexit – Leave.EU

The Battle for Brexit took on added prominence this week as Parliament voted in favour of our exit being triggered by the end of March 2017. The vote came as Downing Street outmanoeuvred the opposition Labour party by amending a motion calling for a detailed Brexit plan. They won by 461-89 – an overwhelming majority of 372 – but six MPs appeared to forget who their employers were by defying their constituents’ desire to Leave and voting against the motion. Remember the following names next time you’re in the polling booth:

After “47 Ronin” comes “89 Qislings”, a story of everyday REMAINIACS and Remoaners that has a happy ending as they all commit Seppuku

Please tell your MPs: Respect the Will of the People in the EU Referendum

As you saw from our last e-bulletin, this week the Supreme Court heard the Government’s appeal to trigger Article 50 – without a vote in Parliament.  In January, the eleven judges will give their decision on whether the result of the EU Referendum alone was enough to start the Brexit process, or if MPs must vote on the triggering of Article 50. If they do decide to send this to Parliament for MPs to vote, we must all ensure MPs respect the will of the people.
