Set up in 2016 in the run-up to the referendum on Britain’s continued membership of the EU, Brexit Express’s aim was simple; to allow people to voice their support for Leave, irrespective of their party-political allegiances. Brexit Express ran a high-profile poster campaign across the UK which proved popular.
In 2017 Brexit Express offered funding to Conservative Party candidates fighting in Remain constituencies where a member of the Opposition was the current incumbent. Four MPs supported by Brexit Express were duly elected and are serving their constituents with distinction.
Almost three years on and, of course, we are still waiting for politicians of all hues to honour their oft-repeated promise to honour the referendum result and let us leave the EU. Assisted by the many manifestations of the Establishment from Speaker Bercow to the BBC, the plot to thwart Brexit now hides in plain sight.
Brexit Express, however, is true both to its aim and its promise; to ensure ‘No Backsliding on Brexit’.
