As a former Member of the European Parliament for North West England, I would like to thank everyone for the support they given us over the past year. I stood for election at a time when it looked like the Leave vote of June 2016 was going to be overturned, or at least substantially watered down, into a ‘Brexit in name only’ agreement. Our principal aim as a party was to ensure that the democratic mandate of the British people was respected and that the results of the referendum were upheld.
This is something that Brexiteers across the country, from all walks of life, have collectively worked hard to achieve. Both myself and Henrik Overgaard-Nielsen felt we’d like an opportunity to come together in the North West and celebrate that fact. And while our movement started as a campaign to leave the EU, it has evolved into something far greater. For the first time in decades radical political reform has managed to capture the imagination of people across the political and social spectrum and foster the hope of a politics that truly works in the interests of the people. With Brexit now a reality, at least formally, how do we wish to go forward to ensure this democratic agenda for a better politics remains relevant?
The aim of this conference is to discuss the contemporary issues we face, as a nation, in the regions, and in our communities and the ways in which the radical promise of Brexit can continue to influence politics. This cross-party, one-day conference hopes to make a start to unpicking these issues and aims to kickstart public conversations on how Brexit can be a catalyst to Change Politics For Good.
