Is it worth it? 2018 Bus Tour

£7,648 of £15,000 goal

Raised by 151 people in 1 month
This campaign is cancelled as we are unlikely to reach our target. We will be contacting all donors in the next few days. Thank you very much for your support. 

Following the success of our first ‘is it worth it?’ bus tour please help with the next phase of the ‘is it worth it?’ campaign calling for a People's Vote on the deal - to take place once we know what that deal is likely to be

We made a big impact during our 8 day, 33 stop tour including:

·      Six appearances on UK national TV

·      19 articles in national newspapers in the UK

·      22 articles in local and regional newspapers

·      7 reports on regional TV and radio including the main item on BBC Look North

·      International broadcasters from six countries running TV or radio reports
 
Our question has become a key element of the Brexit debate and was posed to Theresa after her Mansion House speech and to Philip Hammond by Andrew Marr.  Neither said ‘yes, Brexit is worth it’ replying only that they had to carry out the decision of the British people.  When our leaders show so little enthusiasm for Brexit, the country has every right to ask ‘is it worth it?’ 

Now we need £15,000 to pay for a week’s bus tour in November. This will run between the EU summit and the crucial parliamentary vote on the deal. It will communicate to MPs the strength of feeling in their constituencies and across the country: the people must be given a chance to vote on the deal - and to decide we stay in the EU if they don't like it. 

If we meet this target, then the tour goes ahead but if we fall short, the proceeds will roll over to another pro-European cause or will be refunded should individuals request it.

The precise wording has yet to be finalised but will include Brexit: is it worth it?

Dear all,

First thank you for your donation. We very much appreciate it and your generousity.

Second, some bad news. We have not, I am afraid, raised enough money for the bus tour to go ahead.

Third, some good news. We have, separately, part funded an opinion poll designed to persuade Labour MPs for leave leaning constituencies to vote for a People's Vote and against the deal that Theresa May brings back from Brussels - it will run in 58 marginal leave leaning Labour constituencies. We are confident that this will show this will increase their chances of election - and that many in their constituency will support them. This is based on a poll we conducted in September which showed something similar (see represent-us.uk for details). Represent Us Limited is the company that would have had legal responsibility for the bus tour and that will commission the poll.

We said in the project description that if the bus tour did not go ahead donors could either request a refund or we would use the money for other anti-Brexit work. We would like to use the money we have raised with this crowdfunder on the poll and publicising it but if you would like a refund please write to me at info@isitworthit.org.uk and we will of course arrange a refund.

Best wishes and thanks again,

Charles Seaford
