Rejoiner plot: Europhiles unveil 2021 election bid to reverse Brexit – 'It's not working!'

Claiming Brexit “isn’t working”, they will attempt to gain a seat in the London Assembly in May. Just three months from the end of the transition period, the Rejoin EU party will attempt to reclaim the rights which they allege have been stripped away from UK citizens. With the backing of pro-EU group Volt UK, the party will set out a manifesto of ‘reform to rejoin’.

Despite Labour and the Tories dominating the London Assembly, Rejoin EU leader Richard Hewison claimed Brexit must be reversed.

He told The London Economic: “Brexit just isn’t working.

“I am putting myself forward in this election because I feel, morally, no father can just stand by and watch the rights of their children being stripped away without taking action, and there just aren’t any other voices advocating for what is right in this election.”

Within the Assembly, Labour holds 12 seats, the Tories eight, Greens two, Brexit Alliance two and the Lib Dems one.

Although London voted overwhelmingly for Remain, it is unclear if the group will be able to break Labour’s grasp of the capital.

Indeed, with the local elections set to be held across the country on May 6, it is unlikely if the group will put forward any candidates for other seats.

Although there have been some teething problems with the UK’s exit, some industry leaders have claimed it is now begun to settle down.

However, some groups in Northern Ireland are calling for the Northern Ireland protocol to be scrapped.

The move sparked anger from the EU who accused Westminster of breaking the agreement between the two sides.

Vice-President of the EU Commission, Maros Sefcovic later held a call with Lord David Frost to discuss matters.

He warned the EU would take full legal action within the Trade and Cooperation Agreement to restore measures.

A statement from the EU read: “This is the second time that the UK government is set to breach international law.

“This also constitutes a clear departure from the constructive approach that has prevailed up until now.”

During the call, Lord Frost maintained the measures had been consistent with the UK’s obligations and approach.

A UK Government spokesperson said: “Lord Frost explained that the measures announced today, following official-level notification to the commission earlier this week, were temporary technical steps, which largely continued measures already in place, to provide more time for businesses such as supermarkets and parcel operators to adapt to and implement the new requirements in the protocol.”
