Book launch: ‘Reclaim Democracy – The Left Case for Sovereignty’

On 2 December, Claire took part in the launch of a new book with her fellow Brexit Party MEP Henrik Overgaard-Neilsen. The book is a collection of essays which all examine why leaving the EU should be a left-wing cause. In her remarks, Claire condemned the ‘moral cowardice’ of the British left, which has long had a Eurosceptic tradition. Rather than take the opportunity of the EU referendum to make the case for leaving, the left turned on working-class Leavers, describing them as ignorant, racist or even fascist.

The event was organised by Leavers of Manchester and also featured Alka Sehgal Cuthbert, a Brexit Party candidate and academic, and former mine surface worker Steve Roberts.
