Why we're standing down against Conservative seats for this GE
On Monday 11 November, Nigel Farage announced that, in order to try and ensure Brexit is delivered, he is standing down the Brexit Party candidates (PPCs) in all 317 Conservative seats for the 12 Dec General Election.
While this is very disappointing in North Devon, it's important to look at the bigger picture. We are pausing, we haven't gone away. To all of the amazing supporters in North Devon, please accept my heartfelt thanks for all of your encouragement and hard work. Remember, it's only just begun. British politics needs reforming and it's going to take some time.
The Brexit Party is unique in that it is uniting true democrats across the political, racial and social spectrums. It's been brilliant to see people from all political views and backgrounds coming together in the North Devon Brexit Party, including those who have felt politically homeless. We're having some great discussions. Let's not stop. In this upcoming General Election, you'll have to do what you think is best with your vote to help secure Brexit. I will have to do the same. It's not easy. But please stay positive, look ahead and be proud of what we've started here to change politics for good.
The Brexit Party
Restoring Democracy, Integrity & Trust to British Politics
NORTH DEVON BREXIT PARTY CAMPAIGN BUZZ
Rejuvenating & Investing in our Regions
We believe that a clean-break Brexit and the changes it can bring will be a great opportunity to rebuild Britain. By investing the Brexit dividend in the regions outside London, we can create a country that is fairer and freer as well as more democratic.
A Sovereign Nation
We believe that Britain should be a sovereign nation with democratic control over its own laws, borders and money. An independent nation state with an international vision.
Restoring Trust & Integrity
The Brexit Party wants to put the principles of trust and integrity at the centre of political life. Britain needs political leaders that the people can trust - and who will trust the people to make their own democratic decisions. Vote for The Brexit Party.
British Politics Needs Reforming
In 2016, the people of North Devon voted decisively to leave the EU - but politicians aren't listening. Either actively trying to stop Brexit or voting for the awful Withdrawal Agreement.
The betrayal of Brexit by the Westminster establishment reveals that British politics is broken. The old two-party system and outdated policies of Left & Right wing serves only itself.
The Brexit Party believes that Britain needs fundamental political reform to promote democracy and make the people sovereign. That means challenging the pillars of establishment control.
We believe Britain should be a nation of free and equal citizens, enjoying the historic liberties we pioneered such as freedom of speech, and looking after those in need. We champion the British values of tolerance and fairness and embrace the diversity of Britain's people - and of their opinions.
