‘MR Michael Heseltine, opposition front bench spokesman on industry, seized the mace and behind the Bar of the House blows were exchanged,’ reported The Times on May 28, 1976.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺Heseltine: “A government frightened of parliament is frightened of democracy. And a government willing to kick MPs out of its party on an issue of such monumental importance is a government without leadership, frightened of the truth.” #BrexitNorth
Buy tickets for The Great Northern Stop Brexit Conference #2 at Leeds, Sat 7 September 2019 - Repairing and Reforming Broken Britain
In September 2018 Leeds for Europe organised the ground-breaking Great Northern Stop Brexit Conference. A packed...
The new government has set itself against conformism, but it really hates reasonable doubt
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺By @NickCohen4: ‘“This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but with a whimper.” How apposite. The failure of the right to be honest with itself, and live by its own rules, will leave the British whimpering for as far ahead as anyone can see.’
Pressure is mounting on the Government to avoid a no-deal divorce from the European Union, with concerns raised by two of Yorkshire’s most senior Conservative figures and industry leaders at the Great Yorkshire Show.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺“The ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’ did not act alone. Behind them lies a murky network of powerful and secretive organisations – a network we have called The Brexit Syndicate.” This is essential reading. #Brexit
The Conservatives are abandoning their principles in their pursuit of power, but there will be a reckoning
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺Brilliantly perceptive, as always, from @NickCohen4: “The far right does not seize power. It is invited in to power by mainstream conservatives, who boast of their commitment to free societies. They do it for partisan gain.”
Buy tickets for Coach from Leeds to London for the March for Change 20/7/19 at Neville Street, Leeds, Sat 20 July 2019 - The next major anti-Brexit march is taking place in London on Saturday, 20th July 2019. In March 2019, over 1,000,000 people...
Leeds residents entitled to vote in this week's EU election are being turned away by polling stations.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺An eligible Polish voter “was told SIX times she could not vote, but was insistent and eventually they found her on the roll and she has now voted". How many others were not so persistent? This is a democratic outrage. #DeniedMyVote #Leeds
Around 150 anti-fascists marched through the streets of Leeds against Yellow Vest protesters who didn't turn up.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺Yellow vest demo in #Leeds on Saturday: “One commenter called it an 'embarrassment', while another said: ‘We gave up also, couldn’t find anyone at train station’”.
But hundreds of anti-fascists did turn up to show #Leeds at its best @AFN_Leeds
Hand-out 'fudge' blasted for making no mention of policy to push for second referendum.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺This is the nightmare scenario as far as we are concerned: “Fury As Corbyn European Elections Leaflet Suggests Labour Backs #Brexit”.
Can @UKLabour really be planning to betray their members, voters & excellent MEPs like @RCorbettMEP?
I had hoped even up until the last few days, that the European Parliament elections, if they took place, presented an opportunity for discussion about Yorkshire devolution.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺An important piece on #Brexit in the @yorkshirepost by the founder of the @YorkshireParty:
“Over the last 3 years I have shifted from being a reluctant Leaver to a Remainer. The evidence .. is that #Yorkshire will be considerably worse off”
Theresa May will ask to postpone Brexit until 30 June - but the EU is expected to want a longer delay.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺Remainers are the true patriots. We have warned for 3 years that #Brexit would lead to our national decline & humiliation. It hurts us to see this happening before our eyes. Meanwhile, the Brexiters plough on, piling embarrassment & shame on our country.
Leeds for Europe have launched a campaign to cancel Brexit & instead fix the real problems that we face - together. We need money to pay for a mass leafleting campaign across Yorkshire.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺“#Brexit Divides Us - Let’s Stay Together” We are proud to announce the launch of our first crowdfunder campaign to pay for mass leafleting across Yorkshire, so we can spread our positive messages about why we should stay in the EU. Please support & share.
The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is 'the will of the people'. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now.
Leeds for Europe 🇪🇺We don’t promote every petition, because there are so many. But this one is has really taken off - about to hit 400,000 signatures. So let’s get behind it. Please sign and share: Revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU.
