Remoaners in Open Britain and Best for Britain have promised a summer of activity as part of their campaign to stop Brexit. We in The Freedom Association are responding in kind, and thanks to the generosity of members in both giving up their time and their money, we are planning a summer of street stalls and other campaigning.
We have organised six stalls next week, and many more are in the pipeline.Read more
This is the moment John Bercow announced that the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill had been given Royal Assent and had become an Act of Parliament. Great news, but Bercow doesn't look very happy about it! 🤣
Remoaner MPs - those who willingly handed over power to Brussels without the bat of an eyelid - were told a home truth by Freedom Association Council member, Philip Davies MP, last week. Watch the video to find out more.
On the anniversary of the referendum, Peer urges ‘negative’ Government to start talking about the benefits of Brexit
22nd June 2018
On the eve of the second anniversary of the EU referendum, the independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon has criticised the Government for its: “negativity and failure to make clear the many benefits the UK will enjoy outside of the European Union. The British people had a vision of a positive future outside of the EU, when they bravely voted for Brexit on 23rd June 2016. It is a about time the Government did too!”
Lord Stoddart said: “It really is very disappointing that it has to be the American Ambassador who is reminding us of what a great country we are and of the optimistic future we can look forward to outside of the EU. He is absolutely right to be dismayed at the defeatism we, as a nation, are exhibiting towards Brexit. It is high time that our rather negative Government, which seems to regard the negotiations with the EU as some sort of damage limitation exercise, started being a cheer leader for the benefits of leaving the EU, not least the £10.5 billion net and rising that we will no longer have to pay to be in this failing economic bloc.
“The passage of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill through both Houses of Parliament this week is hugely significant because it means that the European Communities Act 1972, which made the EU supreme over Westminster, will be repealed. In other words, despite the endless anti-democratic wailing of the Remain brigade, there is no going back, we are leaving the EU and re-establishing the supremacy of our own Government and Parliament. Not before time!”

For the past six years, Rory has been at the heart of the effort to put the positive case for the UK to leave the EU and has made a significant contribution to the success of the Brexit cause.Read more

Yesterday's speech of the day was without a doubt delivered by Caroline Flint, the Labour MP for Don Valley. You can watch it here. During that speech she was heckled by Anna Soubry who shouted "shame" at her across the chamber because Flint said, referring to EEA membership, that Michel Barnier would "bite off the Prime Minister’s hand for that deal, because apart from leaving without any deal, it is the worst deal for the United Kingdom."
Later in her speech, she said:
"Those of my constituents who voted leave have been insulted, day in and day out, by comments made in the place and outside. They are not against all migration, but they want a sense that we can turn the tap on and off when we choose to do so."Read more
We may not have the £billions of Soros, but what we have is passion. It was that passion and sheer hard work that won us the referendum in 2016. But because the forces of Remain have united to thwart the largest democratic vote in the history of our great country, we need to roll-up our sleeves and fight again for Brexit.
Once again, The Freedom Association is taking the lead. We plan to hold street stalls to raise awareness of why we voted Leave on 23rd June 2016. We intend to galvanise Leave voters to put pressure on their MPs to ensure we have a proper Brexit - not Brexit in name only.
In the coming weeks we will be visiting Loughborough to talk to Nicky Morgan’s constituents. We will also be in Totes (Sarah Wollaston), Broxtowe (Anna Soubry), and a raft of Labour seats that voted solidly to leave, but have Remainer MPs who want to render the Leave vote meaningless.Read more

Lord Framlingham (Michael Lord, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons) told his fellow Peers some home truths on Wednesday. And they didn't like it. When I was talking to our Patron Lord Vinson last week at our Freedom Forum in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, I commented on how rude the House of Lords is these days. Two days ago, once again Remain Peers did their best to drown out a Brexit voice.Read more
