The next referendum will be determined by those who didn’t vote in 2016

The table shows the combined results of SSTIE’s polling in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Swanley in the last 4 weeks.
The principal message to take from this is very encouraging for Remain in that across West Kent there is an 11% rise in support for Remain  largely coming from those who declared that they didn’t vote in 2016.

Caroline Lucas answers the question: Why can’t the Remain Parties work together?

Dear George,

Thank you for your email about the possibility of an electoral alliance of Remain parties in the forthcoming European Parliament election.

As someone who strongly believes that the UK’s future would be brighter, fairer and greener if we remained in the EU, and having been a co-founder of the cross-party campaign for a People’s Vote with the option to remain, I very much understand your desire to see the pro-Remain parties working together to maximise the pro-Remain vote in the European Parliament (EP) election. Unfortunately, however, the particular form of proportional representation that the UK uses for EP elections (known as the d’Hondt system) presents very significant practical barriers to the formation of a formal or even an informal electoral alliance.

SSTIE Member’s address on Brexit to the Liberal Democrats Spring Conference

I fully support this motion, but it could go a lot further.

Although we are the only party to have taken an unequivocal Remain position, we have continuously failed to prevent the debate, in both parliament and the media, from focusing almost entirely on the virtues of a hard versus a soft Brexit.  It is essential the debate is realigned – to be between Remain, on the one hand, and any form of Brexit, on the other.

Polling shows growing support for staying in EU

Writing on website InFacts.org, former president of YouGov Peter Kellner analyses the latest YouGov surveys and highlights several important messages:

Staying in the EU now holds a commanding lead over the Government’s Deal:

Given a simple choice between the Government’s deal or Remain, 59% preferred Remain, 41% leaving with the Government’s deal.

Millions of 2016’s Leave voters have lost faith in Brexit’s ability to make life better

Considering only the people who voted Leave in 2016, just 24% of them believe that Brexit will make life better.

As recently as September this year, 43% of the same pool of Leave voters believed that life would be better after Brexit. That is a drop of one-third in three months!

People’s Vote March – 20 October 2018

One percent of the UK population converged on London this weekend in one of the biggest protest marches in UK history. Buses from Inverness, Truro and everywhere in-between. Standing-room only on Saturday trains to London. Expats flying home from across the continent to stand up and – finally – be counted. 700,000 people walked shoulder-to-shoulder to make our voice heard, and demand a people’s vote.
