The Bruges Group spearheaded the intellectual battle to win a vote to leave the European Union and, above all, against the emergence of a centralised EU state.

Campaigning for a Clean Brexit

Andrew Roberts asks you to support the Bruges Group

Brexit is under threat. Every day an anti-democratic alliance orchestrated by Tony Blair, senior Labour figures, the Lib Dems, together with their cheerleaders in big business and the media, are working to block delivery of what you, I and 17.4 million others voted for on 23rd June 2016. Every day they talk down Britain's prospects, try to undermine Brexit legislation, search for opportunities to take legal action to prevent Britain leaving the EU and demand a repeat vote.

We must not let them steal away our hard-won victory. After the referendum, I wrote that the Bruges Group played a key role in winning back our freedom from the European Union. By educating the public on European affairs and promoting our positive vision of a free country, the Bruges Group has been at the forefront of the long battle to secure this country's freedom and prosperity.

None of this would have been possible without your generous support, yet our battle is not over. As events are proving, there is still a long way to go and many dangers to Brexit lie ahead.

There are those that continue to ignore the public will, and our traditional liberties, and want us tied into many of the EU's iniquitous arrangements. Some want Britain's armed forces tied into an emerging EU military, that will undermine NATO. Others support EU arrangements that threaten our civil liberties. Some want our economy chained by EU regulations for the foreseeable future, even after we have left. These are just a few areas where our freedom, and future opportunities in the world could be curtailed, placing Britain at the continued mercy of a failing foreign system. Worse, this may come at an enormous financial cost.

For me and I'm sure for you too, exiting the EU means leaving those restrictions and instead following our customs. Our nation is a Common Law jurisdiction, fundamentally incompatible with the European Union. As I know well, we are a people who throughout history have been determined to live in a free country and even to fight for the liberties that we hold dear. At the heart of our values rests the concept of individual liberty coupled with a global outlook.

Events are moving quickly and time is short. The Bruges Group has friends at the heart of government whom we are confident share our vision and whose efforts to take us out of the EU we applaud. But they are under huge pressure and need our backing now more than ever. Many in Westminster and in the EU need to know that the British people will not succumb to their political posturing and the manipulation of the 'remoaning' tendency exhibited by opponents of the public's clear referendum verdict.

Now, at such a critical time for our cause, the Bruges Group must continue to campaign strongly to counter the anti-Brexit lobby, to bolster public support for Britain's exciting new global endeavour and to provide intellectual and public backing to our friends in government fighting to deliver Brexit. To do this we need your support. Last year you kindly donated to our cause. I would like to ask if you will please give as generously again to the Bruges Group's work, to support our vision and to join others in continuing to fight for Britain's freedom, democracy and future prosperity.

I look forward to hearing from you and to meeting you at a future Bruges Group event.

Yours faithfully,

Professor Andrew Roberts, FRSL, FRHistS

Dear dir or madam' I am pleased to read here on comments and intentions to take the fight to them, for too long now I feel the public have acted wisely by. NO' act of violence in protests. Also I would like to add that I feel the people are so disillusioned and depressed by all the media attention that seems to attack Brexit at every turn and give no media coverage at all on the great things Britain can and is achieving at this moment but no coverage given. BBC ITV it seems all are intent on attacking our patients . The outcome has been depression as we have no voice that demands the attention like once nigel Farage did. He engaged the people with hope and certainty that this was possible and we could deliver on what this country has lost so much of, its independence to create in all industries and be very competitive in the world and now it seems the EU for 40 years will not allow Great Britain to be a threat the industries of Germany which have taken away from us and incorporated them into their very countries and with pride too. We need a voice to stir the people as nigel Farage once did. He disappointed many when he walked away taking our inspiration with him, leaving us with a Brexit. the country never ever believed that the parties would ever follow through with. We are. Dying out for that voice again to return that independence we felt we had it is the only thing that drives us to fight . When the media and parties hated him so much they had to show him on TV and try to humiliate but never ever could that is what we all loved he was one of us and spoke as we would have done with passion . I will next time make a donation for this cause as I feel this is the only fight that we must win. But the people need this inspiration by a nigel Farage passion and dare I say it, his face simply says to the parties and the EU . No' I speak for the people and I will fight for them too. And never give in. I truly. Elieve in this cause and pray we have the return to our common laws and country once again , but please I truly believe that should nigel Farage return he will light this flame again in the people because he said he would return if referendum result was not carried through, his presence I am sure will thrill the people who felt betrayed by his abcense . But we do thank him for that referendum but it must be honoured and he must honour I'm sure it will give confidence to the last fight for our independence . Mark Denton , Pembrokeshire

Thank you for your kind words, many people feel like this and are deeply troubled by the so-called progress made so far.

This Brexit situation to be delivered properly, will require a complete change of management on the UK. Otherwise we will be in the EU in all but name... TM has obviously got to go. But JRM is not ready yet.. however, I am more than willing to take the risk on JRM. Otherwise it is time to put on the campaign boots again and get behind Farage and UKIP... This is literally a fight for our country. and so many people are asleep. and so we are the watch guards. how to wake the troops???

The EU is considering that the agreement will be binding. Time is running out and we need to move quickly.
