Yesterday's speech of the day was without a doubt delivered by Caroline Flint, the Labour MP for Don Valley. You can watch it here. During that speech she was heckled by Anna Soubry who shouted "shame" at her across the chamber because Flint said, referring to EEA membership, that Michel Barnier would "bite off the Prime Minister’s hand for that deal, because apart from leaving without any deal, it is the worst deal for the United Kingdom."
Later in her speech, she said:
"Those of my constituents who voted leave have been insulted, day in and day out, by comments made in the place and outside. They are not against all migration, but they want a sense that we can turn the tap on and off when we choose to do so."Read more
We may not have the £billions of Soros, but what we have is passion. It was that passion and sheer hard work that won us the referendum in 2016. But because the forces of Remain have united to thwart the largest democratic vote in the history of our great country, we need to roll-up our sleeves and fight again for Brexit.
Once again, The Freedom Association is taking the lead. We plan to hold street stalls to raise awareness of why we voted Leave on 23rd June 2016. We intend to galvanise Leave voters to put pressure on their MPs to ensure we have a proper Brexit - not Brexit in name only.
In the coming weeks we will be visiting Loughborough to talk to Nicky Morgan’s constituents. We will also be in Totes (Sarah Wollaston), Broxtowe (Anna Soubry), and a raft of Labour seats that voted solidly to leave, but have Remainer MPs who want to render the Leave vote meaningless.Read more

Lord Framlingham (Michael Lord, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons) told his fellow Peers some home truths on Wednesday. And they didn't like it. When I was talking to our Patron Lord Vinson last week at our Freedom Forum in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, I commented on how rude the House of Lords is these days. Two days ago, once again Remain Peers did their best to drown out a Brexit voice.Read more
Following his recent highly critical “playing with fire” remarks about the House of Lords’ attitude towards Brexit and the petition calling for a referendum on abolition of the Upper Chamber reaching 116,000 signatures, TFA Council Member and Independent Labour Peer Lord Stoddart of Swindon has provided his thoughts on the future of the Lords.Read more
TFA Council Member and Independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon, has taken remoaners in the House of Lords to task about their contribution to the ongoing debate over Brexit and wonders if "the next referendum put to the voters should be about whether the House of Lords should be abolished and replaced by a system accountable and capable of being dismissed by them".Read more
On June 23rd 2016, the British people voted to leave the EU. During the campaign, it was made clear by Vote Leave and others that this would mean leaving the so-called EU Single Market and its Customs Union. There was no mention of a transition deal. Now concerns are raised as it can be revealed the government has had meetings with CEOs that ensured there was a transition deal.Read more
Barnier's new demands to try and tie the UK to the EU's taxation policies illustrates a test for the UK government. It is also a game that Barnier is playing to ensure Brexit in name only (BRINO) and something the UK government must resist.Read more
Prime Minister Theresa May signalled her desire for continued security cooperation with the EU in her Florence Speech. She has subsequently built on that desire in numerous speeches, including in Munich and at the Mansion House in London. But the UK government's willingness to coordinate with the EU should not be blind. Its response to a recent petition signed by over 14,000 people raises questions about whether the Government is willing to sacrifice our freedom in order to follow the EU's agenda.Read more
