The Rejoin EU Party sees the utterly immoral and illegal invasion by Russia of Ukraine as a powerful vindication of its whole policy position.
The crisis has most tragically and graphically demonstrated the importance of European unity in preserving peace on our continent.
It is no coincidence that some of the most outspoken advocates of Brexit are amongst Putin’s present apologists. We are confident the long-overdue campaign against the Russian kleptocracy’s financial interests in the UK, which the current sanctions have initiated, will – notwithstanding the already evident evasions of the British government – expose the full extent to which the Putin regime supported Brexit.
Brexit was a key covert part of Putin’s strategy to divide and weaken Europe now in plain sight on the streets of Kyiv.
A further specific and immediate evasion in this crisis by the British government also stems directly from its support for Brexit: the refusal to grant the Ukrainian partners of British citizens now fleeing Putin’s armoured juggernaut the absolute right to come to the UK.
Rejoin EU Party Leader Richard Hewison said: “Such callous disregard for the most elementary decency in what seems likely to become the worst European refugee emergency since the Second World War simply beggars belief.”
The Rejoin EU party is campaigning to re-join the EU because we believe the UK belongs at the heart of Europe and re-joining is the only way to solve the problems Brexit has created. Brexit is broken and it’s breaking our country too. All the promises on which Brexit was sold to the electorate in 2016 are now increasingly exposed as fantasy. Far from bringing the promised reduction in red tape and bureaucracy and providing £350m a week for the NHS, Brexit makes trading with the crucial European market more complex, difficult and expensive and threatens to reduce funding for public services. Sectors such as farming, fisheries & financial services, supposed to benefit from Brexit, now face an uncertain future. If you agree Brexit is making our country poorer, less tolerant and less united, join us and send a message to Westminster that you want your EU membership back, along with all its freedoms and benefits.
