Happy Easter! Rather than winding down ahead of the bank holiday weekend, things appear to be heating up!
The past few weeks have seen fresh allegations that Vote Leave cheated during the referendum. If they are proved, this would contravene one of the key principles we are campaigning for: honest politics. The Observer exposé revealed the depths of their alleged deceit, raising real questions about the democratic validity of the EU referendum. The key points are summed up by Hugo Dixon in his piece detailing the 6 allegations that suggest Vote Leave may have cheated.
[Hat Tip to the wonderful new campaign – Fair Vote – that has helped to bring the truth to the fore. If you haven’t already, do check out their Facebook page to keep up to date with what they’re up to.]
All this comes with just one year to go until the Brexit deadline. One year on from Article 50 being triggered, the Brexit talks are in dire straits. A growing number of people are worried about Brexit and the impact it will have on our country. But it’s not too late to stop it. Here’s why.
Here at CommonGround, we’re optimistic that things are moving in the right direction. Momentum is growing and there is an increasingly united front as we head towards the final few months of the campaign. ICYMI six of the leading pro-European organisations have begun colocating in a shared office space to better coordinate the fight against Brexit. Millennials are also increasingly mobilised, through the fantastic campaign work of Our Future Our Choice and For our Future’s Sake.
If you’re not involved already, it’s time to get involved!
