WHY READ THIS?
In OVER THREE years that have elapsed since our referendum it has become apparent that:
1. There remains NO
plan for Brexit. All the sketchy plans for Brexit (Chequers, No Deal, Norway, Canada Plus, Canada Geese, Canada Dry etc.) are inferior to the deal we currently have with the EU. Boris' bluster does not alter the basic mathematics of Brexit.
2. There remain NO
answers to the question "How will Brexit benefit me or the country?" Even BXP farce Nigel Farage
cannot answer the question and Jacob Rees-Mogg suggests we won't see any benefit for 50 years.
3. There remains confusion and contention about what Brexit means, although it has become clearer that Brexit offers no value economically, socially, environmentally, ethically and so on.
Brexit is simply the pursuit of a political ideology for the few, not the many. All challenges to Brexit, be they legal, technical, social or otherwise have been ignored by our Government and the official opposition, putting their parties before the good of the country and its people.
Some say that Brexit cannot be stopped. They are wrong
. They merely demonstrate the condition psychologists call "learned helplessness
". This occurs when people don't believe they can affect the outcome of an event and / or they don't know what to do about it. We must change this.WHAT IS THIS PROJECT FOR?
We run a variety of projects to help end Brexit, each of them different in character and targeted towards different ambitions and communities:1. Street Ghostbusting
We continue our street pub and cafe conversations with Leave Voters to demonstrate skills of dialogue and conflict resolution. The new book "Let's Talk About BREX .. it
" is the culmination of our work on the street, in cafes and bars on the long slog to change minds one at a time.
We continue street activism with music with a series of music based events in London and selected locations in Kent. Also we are "Brexorcist in Chief" for Mid Kent for EU.
We have also sourced thousands of stickers to maintain awareness that Brexit is not a done deal. Please get in touch to get your supply of these. We have child friendly ones as well as the famous "Bollocks to Brexit" ones that we pioneered on the street at No 10 Downing Street.2. Making an impact in national and international media
We continue to generate informative articles, Radio and TV material dramatic effect. Examples include:Article for French Political Lifestyle magazine L'OBS Norwegian TV piece on Brexit BBC Radio 4
- also BBC Radio KentLBC James O'Brien
and Nigel Farage - Five appearances
Europa United article on Strategies for Brexit GhostbustingDaily Mirror article
- also The Daily Mail, Metro, Kent Messenger, Express etc.3. Who Cares About Brexit?
Who Cares About Brexit focuses on the likelihood of deaths and serious illnesses under a No Deal Brexit scenario. It is sheer irresponsibility on the part of our Government to threaten its citizens with medicine and food shortages merely so they can get us to accept any deal that they can cobble together. We put the Who Cares About Brexit website
4. Challenging Vote Leave Lies
We continue to challenge Vote Leave where we feel we can make an impact without contributing to the amplification of their own media presence. Examples of this include a front page article in The Independent
, The New European
and our surrealistic "online eBay auction of Nigel Farage
" and "Brexit Ferry Services
" projects.5. Targeting Brexit Apathy with Music
We recently produced an album of anti Brexit songs "NOW - The Brexit Party Album
". Check some of the songs out here:Exit Brexit
is a song to help put an end to Brexit, designed specifically to impact the man and woman on the street who have largely been unmoved by graphs, data and elaborate arguments about stopping Brexit. This includes leave voters in regret and remainers who think we must follow "the will of the people". Both groups exhibit what psychologists call "learned hopelessness".Exit Brexit
, written in the Chas & Dave "Mockney" style, will help persuade Brexiteers in regret and weary Remainers that Brexit is a "Dogs Dinner". Imagine "Margate" by Chas & Dave sung in an East End pub with punters soaked in Watneys' Red Barrel and cockles ... We are presently working with the Lib Dem PPC for Uxbridge to help unseat Boris Johnson.
We work on these as part of our ongoing commitment to "Break Brexit Before Brexit Breaks Britain". I hope you can support us.
