After the general election, I noted how the British people voted to reject ever more centralised control by the EU in favour of free trade and cooperation. I asked when the rest of the EU would get the chance to vote for cooperation between nation states – in other words, for democracy over bureaucratic government from Brussels.
Along with my Brexit Party colleague Claire Fox, we launched our short book, which explains why leaving the EU is by no means a right-wing idea. Indeed, it is surprising that this is assumed in the UK when so much of big business and the establishment supports EU membership. The book brings together essays from a range of different voices explaining why leaving the EU, and reclaiming sovereignty, should very much a left-wing cause.
The launch was kindly organised by Leavers of Manchester. We were also joined by two of the essay authors, Alka Sehgal Cuthbert and Steve Roberts. You can watch my introductory comments here.
