Tories Against Brexit – join our campaign

With the start of 2018 we have launched our new campaign, Tories Against Brexit, via social media. This is because 2018 is the year in which the big decisions will be taken and with them comes our last chance to stop the disaster of Brexit. Now is the time for all who recognise that Brexit threatens our prosperity, our Union and our place in the world to come together to oppose it.

We set up Citizens 4 Britain last year because we wanted to create a place where anyone who had voted Tory, or who belonged (or had recently belonged) to the Conservative Party, could link to other like-minded, anti-Brexit Tories. Now we are moving to a new phase, when we focus our efforts on getting Conservative MPs and peers to recognise that the “Brexit means Corbyn”. If the Tory Party turns its back, on the millions of people who voted Conservative in recent elections but will not do so again after Brexit, on an entire generation of young people and on its natural supporters in business, finance, science and academia and key public services, the Party cannot win again. Stopping Brexit is the only way to save the country from a hard-left Labour government led by Jeremy Corbyn (untrammelled by EU safeguards) and the Conservative Party from disintegration.

We have appointed a Director to co-ordinate the campaign, we are reaching out to members of both Houses of Parliament but we need your support to truly make a difference.

Follow our campaign on our new Facebook page, donate to us (all our funds come from donations and go to pay for our campaigning) and keep checking our web page for further details of our campaigning. In the meantime, if your constituency voted Remain, and your MPs is a Conservative, write to them as soon as you can. Tell them that you want them to use their position to stop a hard Brexit, and to give the British people the chance to decide whether the final deal with the EU is really better than staying in a European Union that Conservative governments did so much to make successful.

Let’s stop Brexit in 2018!

  1. Excellent idea. Its about time that a rallying point for pro-EU Conservatives is established and the message has to be that it IS patriotic to want to remain a EU member. I’m sick to the back teeth of the UKIP takeover of Conservative Home and seeing good people being called ‘traitors’ for being Remainers. I hope that you will also co-operate with other pro-Remain groups even if you differ on other political issues.

  2. Lest we forget that with only 72 % of people turning out for the vote that gave less than 52 percent majority this is only just over a 40% minority.

    In the last 2 years we have gained far more knowledge about the impact of Brexit, business is warning against it, so many more 18 year olds are eligible to vote and with this new knowledge is is reasonable to conclude that we should have a chance to finally decide to leap or not.

    Most sensible people give others a second chance, all businesses address performance at least once a year and give opportunity to
    re-assess in the new climate, is our government closed to its voting population and is now blinkered like racehorse with a single focus ? this is not race, this is our future; or an ostrich that does not want to face the facts with a “can’t change won’t change” attitude?
    This smacks of dictatorship over leadership and we don’t want it. Give the people a re-vote or a chance to change the direction of this or you will end up with a revolution or worse, a country without any faith in government with all the consequences of that.
    Let’s be open to europe, let us change europe for the better, let us maintain and enhance the stability of this system by being at the table and not the paria of the group banished to have no say and on the brink of collapse.
    If this is some kind of hidden brinkmanship on the part of the government to better our bargaining power and drop out of this farce at the last minute, this is an outdated, un assertive, un businesslike and un-ethical method of negotiation and should stop now.

  3. Well done!

    I agree with the two comments.

    Please put me on your e-mailing list.

    I don’t do social media.

  4. Keep up the good work, a no deal Brexit would be a disaster for this country. The Tory remainers are being sidelined by the extreme right wing takeover of a once great party
