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.

Statement by Barry Legg - Chairman of the Bruges Group

 Contact your Member of Parliament

Theresa May has decided to pursue a policy of Brexit in name only (BRINO). This arrangement will be worse than our current membership of the European Union as we will then be a vassal state.


If this policy is implemented the electoral consequences for the Conservative Party will be dire. I urge all members of the Bruges Group to contact their Conservative Member of Parliament if they are represented by one to explain that this is unacceptable. The decision of the British people to leave the European Union must be honoured. In many cases an appeal to a Member of Parliament`s self-interest is the most effective way of influencing him or her.


Next week on Wednesday evening we have a meeting at 7 o`clock at the ROSL with Nigel Dodds, leader of the DUP in the House of Commons, and Professor Patrick Minford. Patrick has an unapparelled knowledge and understanding of the huge economic benefits that are to be gained by leaving the European Union. Nigel Dodds, as Leader of the DUP, is the most influential figure at Westminster as his Party holds the balance of power. I hope that you will be able to attend this meeting to hear these outstanding speakers and give your views at this critical time for our country.

I have written to my MP as I frequently do and you are absolutely right indeed, please do all in your power to help any uprising in the party and support Boris when he raises his head above the parapet. This is just another battle that's all it isn't the war won.

Hard brexit is not the will of the people either. How many voted for hard brexit? How many voted for BRINO? Much less than those who voted to remain.
There are no benefits to leaving the EU. If there were, we would know about them already and have already left.

I was surprised that our PM Theresa May decided to go to Angela Merkel before she sat down with her cabinet. I personally feel that she has been working hand in hand with the EU bearing in mind that she would very much like to stay in the EU. She is not at all interested in doing the will of 17.4M people.
As an ex district councillor at any meeting where I had an 'interest' in the subject, I was not allowed to vote and many times had to leave the chambers. So tell me if possible, how come the Lords who we a know have an 'interest', ie their pensions, some as farmers get an allowance from the EU, are allowed to vote. To me this is double standards and should not be allowed. I could go on but space and time are at a premium.

The time has come for choosing a Healthy TRUE Brexit believer as PM
Hand over to Boris Johnson until a new leader can be chosen

...and no idea of the consequences of leaving the single market before those benefits materialise (if they ever do).

Wisdom for our present, dark time: "They are asking us to do again the verything that caused the problems in the first place. ...To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite media catchphrase, the 'U' turn, I have only one thing to say.

'You turn if you want to. The lady's not for turning.'"

~Baroness Margaret Thatcher (RIP)~
