ABOUT REJOIN AND REFORM
My name is John McPhie. I am the founder of Rejoin and Reform.
We are where we are. Where we are is an awful place, but not one without hope.
There is no point in examining the reasons why we are where we are with Brexit: they are
all too clear. What we have to do now is to fight the folly of Brexit. We will NEVER embrace
it as the Labour party believes we should. We will do the opposite and exert maximum pressure to rejoin the European Union where we belong.
Even when masked by Covid, Brexit is already proving to be a disaster. Trade with the
EU is down over 40% year on year. The City is haemorrhaging assets, cash and people.
Thousands of businesses are going bust. We're facing the prospect of mass unemployment,
and the failure of the Northern Ireland Protocol is threatening peace in the province.
All these issues can be resolved if we rejoin the Single Market and the Customs Union.
That might seem impossible to imagine right now, but it may be something this government
will be forced to face as we drift from disaster to catastrophe.
While emotions are still raw, it's perhaps the right time to remind ourselves that the motivation for bringing European nations together was the determination to end the devastation
of war and enmity, and to build a cooperative, peaceful, prosperous future together
as a family of nations.
Brexit has not only highlighted and exacerbated the divisions in our society, it has laid bare the incompetence and dishonesty of those who govern us. It has also illustrated all too clearly that our political system is both dysfunctional and corrupt, and in urgent need of reform.
When the consequences of Brexit really strike home, the mood of the country will change. We have to be ready to provide leadership, ideas and direction. We need to build our membership now in order to be able to do that. I hope you will help us.
We WILL rejoin the European Union and we MUST reform.
Our purpose is to make this happen.
When we emerge from the coronavirus crisis we cannot return to our old ways.
We will need a change in leadership. We will need a fresh start.
We will need new ideas and new people for a new Britain.
Most of all, we must reconnect with our friends and fellow Europeans,
rejoin the EU and demand the reform this country needs so badly.
