New Remain super-group!

New Remain super-group!

Scientists for EU and our sister organisation, Healthier IN the EU have joined in partnership with European Movement and Britain for Europe to form a Remain campaign super-group, to really challenge the secretive Brexit government over the months ahead. 



Since the general election, the Brexit government has been in disarray, with Chancellor Philip Hammond and Trade Minister (disgraced ex-Defence Secretary) Liam Fox clashing publicly on multiple occasions. There have been calls for Theresa May to step down as Prime Minister, with many saying she won't last her full term and polls show the Conservative Party is seen as divided and at war with itself. 

With this backdrop, the Remain campaigns are coming together, "united in diversity", stronger than ever and focused on what needs to be done.

The four campaigns have launched their partnership with a crowdfunding drive to raise £60,000 to support rallies at the main party conferences and a lobby of parliament - taking direct democracy to Labour and the Conservatives, proving that British democracy is a participative process, not just a one-off event.

So far, £42,000 has been raised - you can still chip in at Crowdfunder.

Dr Rob Davidson, CEO of Scientists for EU and Healthier IN the EU, said,

"We all know the referendum campaigns were misleading and that's why it's important we keep adding democracy to Brexit instead of letting the same old politicians have their way. The facts are emerging about Brexit Britain: no money for the NHS, more austerity and cuts to public services, brain drain from universities and hospitals and industries across the whole of the UK, stagnant wages and rising inflation. This isn't what people voted for.

The referendum was a democratic choice to start a process, and it proves why British democracy is never just a one-off event. We need more democracy in Brexit, more democracy for the British people, now that the true facts of Brexit are becoming apparent."

    The British public are being excluded from the decision making regarding Brexit. This is because MPs think the people won’t be able to understand the different choices and because they (the politicians) don’t really understand the choices themselves. Yes, this may be the appalling truth of the matter – our politicians don’t understand Brexit and they are not even able to fall back on their usual ideological mantras because the politics of Brexit is not even on the old left/ right spectrum. There is a nationalist/ globalist spectrum – also there is regulation versus regulation-free spectrum. Don’t forget to throw into the mix the various positions on labour rights and environmental protection. It is no wonder that nobody has a clue where anybody stands on anything. Surely it is the job of politicians to make it clear to the electorate what the choices are and what are the costs and benefits of each choice. Both Tories and Labour are split down the middle as to whether we should be going for a hard Brexit or a soft Brexit. We don’t even know whether the EU are going to agree to us having a transition period and we don’t even know what we are transitioning to in this period (even if we get it). Oh my God – the more I thing about it the more I just want to sail off to an island far off in the Ocean and live the simple life of a fisherman without any TV, no internet, no newspapers and no mobile phone.

    A recommendation to the posters / organisers. You write a long piece of text about this new group but you don’t make it obvious if and how we can join the group. Do you have members, can we become members? That should be at the top of your page if you want to show that people support this. Where is the website?

    All those wanting to leave the EU voted leave, and 37% of the electorate did so; 63% did not vot leave.

    It makes good sense to unite the many different groups. Good luck from a member of the Notts branch of Europen Movement
