What You Need to Know

Register to vote


The right to vote was hard won. You should not give it up lightly. If we do get a say in our future, now that we know what Brexit means, it is important that you have a vote. If you have not already done so, please register to vote.

Apply for a postal vote


People are more likely to vote if they have a postal vote. You can download the application form from here. When you have completed the form, please send it to you local Electoral Registration Office.

Tactical voting


Johnson must be stopped. Tactical voting could swing over 80 seats and prevent a Tory majority. It is necessary that we all vote for a candidate who supports a confirmatory vote on any Brexit deal. If there is more than one such candidate in a constituency, we are most likely to succeed if we all vote for the same one. That is the ONLY way we can keep Johnson out of power. Who do you vote for? Best for Britain offers an answer here. The Best for Britain recommendations will be updated as more information becomes available.

Contact your MP


Brexit is nothing like what was promised. The people should have the final say on Brexit. We should be given a real choice - that means a people's vote with the option to stay and lead in Europe. Take this opportunity to tell your MP that you want your final say. Better still, write to your MP. Even better, visit your MP. Here are their contact details.

If you live in Bradford South, it is particularly important that you lobby your MP. Judith Cummins has abstained on some important Brexit votes. It is very important that we urge her to support a confirmatory vote on any deal.

EU gives us clout
Brexit gives us nowt

We are opposed to Johnson's Brexit, a no-deal Brexit and any other form of Brexit. We are doing everything we can to stop Brexit. We are far stronger standing together with our European neighbours than we are standing alone. We are out every week running street stalls, leafleting and joining protests.

We also joined the Yorkshire Remain Voice Choir and performed for a gathering crowd, who were handed song books and joined in the songs. More musical instruments and regular practice made for a polished performance. We got news coverage in the Telegraph & Argus both before the march and after the march. We also got news coverage in the Yorkshire Post.

We also had serious case of the Trots. We were downstream of the Socialist Equality Party, who were handing out flyers critical of us saying that we were the ruling elite. We nonetheless doggedly collected signatures for our petition, and distributed just over 400 of the No Deal People's Vote leaflets and 45 of People's Vote March leaflets.
