Save Britain from COVID : SuspEND Brexit

We plan to take the "Bollocks to Brexit Mini Cooper" on the road again, on a COVID safe trip around Britain to raise awareness that Brexit can be suspended in the wake of Corona.   We'll be distributing 10 000 of the famous EU Flag Mafia stickers of two new designs.  At each location we offer a music performance and a COVID safe protest to re-ignite Remainers who wish to see an end to Brexit disaster.  The only good Brexit is a dead Brexit and Brexit is far from over - see Brexit Choices.

Aside from this we are organising a Festival of Brexit in November and wish to pay the artists for their time to perform at the event.  See Futurama  for details.  We will proceed with the Festival as an online event in November and a real one once lockdown is lifted.

To do this we'll need to pay for the stickers (£380 approx) and to pay costs of petrol / subsistence for up to 10 days of activism (£500 approx) and artist payments for the Festival of Brexit (£600 approx).  Obviously the more we raise, the more we can do, so these are outline costs.  We'll do more if we raise more and report on the outcomes.  One theatre group wish to perform and they live in Manchester so we'd need more to support them.  I refuse to ask artists to perform for free at such things as it continues the exploitation of Boris Johnson's Government.

We plan to commence the tour at the beginning of November so there's no time to waste.

At the same time we'll be writing articles and making video content along our journey.   We hope not to get arrested this time as we did in Essex last time we did this - see Arrested Development

About the leader of the project - Peter Cook

I am an unusual mix of scientist, business academic and musician.  I lead the Rage Against The Brexit Machine project, having written three albums of anti-Brexit protest songs and got one of them to Number One on the Amazon chart.  “Brexorcist in Chief” for Mid Kent 4 EU, I gained two black eyes for daring to ask difficult questions of angry leave voters and was arrested by Essex Police for driving a Mini Cooper with the words “B*llocks to Brexit”.  I also stood a stuffed cat in the 2019 General Election to promote tactical voting.  Although "Stan the Cat" sought no votes at all, he did not come last in the ratings, beating the Christian People's Alliance who had been campaigning for 15 years with a budget !! 

For nearly 4 years I have acted to dispel the illusions of Brexit.  At 62, I am at some risk from Corona and consider that a fitting epitaph for my life would be the destruction of Brexit populism for the sake of future generations.  I wrote a requiem for Brexit on 31 January 2020 and it explains why this matters better than words can manage:
