Level-up Britain

“Levelling-up” - a catchy but empty slogan invented by the Government to convince us they are doing something to fix regional inequalities.  

In a similar vein, the Government has announced a “Brexit Freedoms Bill” to make it easier to amend or remove ‘retained EU law and “unleash the benefits of Brexit”.

A bonfire of EU laws means nothing - all it will do is allow the Government to repeatedly tout sovereignty while ripping up our rights. We cannot stand by and let them get away with this. 

For those of us who live in the real world, it is clear the disastrous combination of a very hard Brexit and an incapable Government has left us with far fewer opportunities, less stability and lower prosperity than we once had. From increased post-Brexit red tape for exporters and importers to uncontrolled energy prices, nothing about Brexit has brought us freedom. The country is more unequal than ever, and the cost of living crisis weighs heavily on people while the Government looks on and does nothing to ease it.

Save our standards: stop the Brexit freedoms bill

The Government is proposing to publish a new ‘Brexit Freedoms Bill’. 

In the Bill, there are no new freedoms and no real commitments to easing the problems caused by Brexit which are compounding the numerous domestic and international crises we’re facing. 

Instead, the Bill will contain new ways for the UK Government to slash standards and accelerate dangerous deregulation practices while avoiding public and parliamentary scrutiny. 

We won’t stand for it - sign our petition today.

 

We cannot allow the Government to repeal and change EU standards and protections without Parliamentary scrutiny. This has huge implications for all our democratic decision-making and threatens to turn our law-making process into a secretive one. 

We need to protect our democratic mechanisms - and ensure that our laws work for us. Sign our petition today to call for real policy development and accountable law-making.

Hold this Government accountable for its botched Brexit

The Government is expected to introduce a new Brexit Freedoms Bill. This is not about building up Britain after Brexit, or about comprehensive policies to make the best of Brexit.

Instead, it will be a hollow document which betrays British people with its empty boasts. 

We don’t plan to let this go unchallenged. 

Support us to rise to the challenge of scrutinising, campaigning against and raising awareness of this hollow legislation. Donate today. 

The Brexit Freedoms Bill will be full of empty bragging - and it is likely to also contain a legal mechanism by which the Government - whoever it is headed by - will be able to change our laws without scrutiny. For all its hollowness, it will also be dangerous. 

So donate today and help us build a lasting, sustainable and long-term campaign against authoritarian and unproductive politics.

During regulated election periods the law says we must make sure all donations of £500 or more are from people who are registered to vote in the UK, or companies that are registered and conduct their business in the UK. That's why we ask for your address and a phone number. If the same person donates more than once and their donations add up to more than £500 in the same calendar year, the same rule applies. Donations over £7,500 must be published by the Electoral Commission. Donations we find to be inadmissible may have to be returned.

Outside of election or referendum periods we welcome donations from anyone who wants to help Best for Britain.

Donations by debit/credit card are processed by Stripe.
