- Rally and march in London (and potentially in other cities) on a Saturday afternoon in early October

- Email your local MP with ‘Respect the Referendum Result’ as the subject line
- Help to provide resources for the Triple-R campaign – pledge an amount by going to the Crowdfunder web site (link below)
MP’s will have the task of voting on the Brexit deal in October 2018. Despite the people’s majority decision to leave, as voted for in the referendum, that majority is not accurately reflected in Parliament by the numbers of MP’s aligned with leaving versus remaining.
The MP’s must be left in no doubt; the people expect them to follow through on the referendum result – that means voting for a Real Brexit – not for Brexit In Name Only.
The Triple-R campaign is aimed at holding them to account using the referendum result as the basis.
WHAT DOES THE ‘Triple-R campaign’ LOOK LIKE?
This is what can be done:
Hold a rally and march in London on a Saturday afternoon in mid-October (exact date to be confirmed). Speakers to include high-profile Brexiteer politicians – possibly with the stage hosted by one or two Brexit supporting show-biz personalities – and possibly including performances by high-profile, Brexit supporting musicians (yet to be identified).
Carry out a national advertising campaign using street hoardings/billboards – carrying the message ‘Respect the Referendum Result – make your voice heard by your MP – demand that your MP votes No to BINO – Yes to a Real Brexit’
To organise a large event and a national campaign requires substantial funding. These funds can be raised by crowd-funding – large numbers making small contributions – there are at least 17.4 million of us. The initial target is £400,000 – if this full amount is not pledged within a 5-week time-window then none of the money pledged will turn into donations and the campaign can’t be funded. It can’t happen without funds. Costs include national advertising, venue hire, policing, stage, sound system, porta-loos, giant screens, T-shirts, banners, leaflets etc.
If very large numbers sign up, then simultaneous events can be organised to take place in other major cities, with a live link-up to the main event.
You can also email your local MP with a simple message – ‘Respect the Referendum Result’ – this is simple to do – see the web links below to find out the address.
WHAT THE CAMPAIGN AIMS TO DO – AND WHAT IT DOES NOT AIM TO DO
It is not the purpose of this website or this campaign to engage in arguments about the pros and cons of the details of leaving the EU. The decision made by most leavers in the referendum was typically based on gut-instinct and intuition, and in the final reckoning these carry more weight than the results obtained from picking apart and analysing the complex and drawn-out details. In their hearts the leave-voters are aware that, in the long term, leaving the EU is in the best interests of the British people, whatever the short term economic cost may be. It is time for leave-voters to express this, simply by re-stating that it is their strongly felt position.
