Remain Reform Revolt - Birmingham

Brexit is a nightmare made by the political establishment. It’s an attack on working class people and our communities. It’s suffocating our politics and poisoning our society.We can end this nightmare and transform Britain instead. By fighting together, we can win decent homes and jobs for everyone. We can replace racism and division with hope and solidarity. By using and reforming structures like the EU, we can get international Green New Deal to save the planet and tackle inequality.Only a message of hope and solidarity can beat Brexit, and we aren’t waiting for a public vote to happen. We’re starting the campaign now. Join us for our Birmingham event to discuss:

Open Meeting - European Parliamentary Elections

STOP PRESS: WE now have a second MEP Candidate coming tonight. Julia Buckley who is a candidate for Labour replaces Laura Davies

In order to have a discussion about these important elections (which will likely be viewed as a mini referendum on the UK’s current attitude towards Europe) we have invited representatives from the following UK Political Parties who have candidates in the West Midlands Constituency: Change UK, the Greens and the Liberal Democrats. They have all made a commitment to a Peoples Vote with the option of Remaining in the EU. We have also invited someone from the Labour Party.

We'll be able to explain the complexities of the particular voting system used in these elections and hope to be able to provide some advice on the way that tactical voting may affect the outcome. We hope to see you there.

Daniel Kawczynski - Public Meeting

The next chance to ask our local MP to explain his position on Brexit will be at this public meeting.

Having formerly supported a No Deal Brexit he has most recently swung behind the Withdrawal Agreement. He has resigned from the ERG and started attacking his former colleagues and blaming them for divisions within the Conservative Party. Having previously said that the Northern Ireland Backstop was completely unacceptable and would lead to the break-up of the United Kingdom, more recently he is now saying that the DUP do not represent the the majority opinion in Northern Ireland. However this does not mean that he has acknowledged that the majority in Northern Ireland actually voted to remain in 2016.
