The Brexit Big Red Bus National Tour

  • Across Suffolk UK (map)

POSTPONED DUE TO BAD WEATHER. Watch this space for revised Dates

 

We now have a new slogan for the bus that properly highlights the cost of Brexit and puts Leave’s exaggerated £350 million in context. The Government’s own leaked analysis is that Brexit with a Free Trade Agreement will cost us 5% of GDP after 15 years. At today’s prices that means being £2,000 million a week poorer than we otherwise would have been. The aim of the tour is to get 'soft leave' and undecided voters to ask themselves 'is it worth it?' We also have a website www.isitworthit.org.uk explaining the costs and benefits of the different options facing Britain – please visit and tweet. 

 

A network of 20 grassroots campaign groups from all over Britain (the North, Midlands, Scotland, Wales, West of England, South East and London) has now come together to mount 30 media events in major centres right across the UK, with speeches from politicians, local business leaders and trade unionists. 

If you are interested in joining the tour for all or part of its 8 day duration please contact Philip Richmond at philipnw5@gmail.com or 07946 707855. We still need some extra hands on board!
