Many of our members and supporters have been in touch to say that they are sick and tired of the smears and rhetoric aimed at them from Anna Soubry, the remain establishment and the mainstream media. They feel that they are using their substantial platform to not only demonise people for exercising their democratic rights but to try and overturn the results of the EU Referendum in 2016.
To that end we have written an open letter to Ms Soubry and others and we are asking for people to add their name to this letter and you can do so by clicking the link at the bottom of the letter?
Firstly we would like to say we write this letter in the spirit of good faith, openness and tolerance of opinions. We at UK Unity are a grassroots movement with over 35,000 supporters representing people from all walks of life, backgrounds, races, nationalities & sexualities. The one thing we all have in common is that on the 23rd of June we proudly voted to leave the European Union in the largest electoral mandate the UK has ever witnessed.
Both during the referendum and even more so since there has been a drive to demonise us leave voters as poorly educated, unsure of the facts and xenophobic. In the last few weeks both you and others have gone one step further in somehow insinuating that Brexit voters are 'far-right'. For the purposes of clarity we do not think you are a Nazi but what we do feel is that you are able to freely use inappropriate words to engage in a campaign of guilt by association of Brexit voters whilst not being prepared to accept criticism yourself.
Wanting to control immigration and cut immigration is a platform that you were elected on as a Conservative Party MP. Likewise you were also elected on a party manifesto that clearly stated it would implement the will of the people with regards exiting the EU. On the same day that you were met outside Parliament Owen Jones was also videoed issuing slurs. The term 'Gammon' which is a racially charged term and is grossly offensive is used greatly by those on the remain side and we ask why is this tolerated?
We the undersigned are asking 3 things of you and the remain campaign in general:
1- Tone down your own language and rhetoric before seeking to smear others
2- Respect the fact that you were elected on a manifesto pledge to Leave the European Union
3- Accept the fact the Referendum of 2016 was a once in a lifetime opportunity and the result stands
If you are unable to do so we the undersigned would politely suggest that you should resign as both a member of the Conservative Party and Member of Parliament for Broxtowe.
Firstly the above poster van has been doing the rounds of Westminster and was commissioned by one of our supporters. As a totally non-party group we are not saying back UKIP (I appreciate a huge number of you are) but we feel that this message is bang on. So many of you that I speak to are absolutely disgusted with the Conservative Party and the way they have handled not only Brexit but their utter failure to curb immigration and their full support of Political Correctness. They are no longer fit for purpose and unless they reform drastically they will be out of Government for a long time to come.
Meanwhile the remain establishment and mainstream media are completely unhinged and absolutely out of control. What we witnessed last week was a sickening and concerted attempt to shut down the right of free speech and to question our politicians. Not only that but as part of a grand scheme of plans they are attempting to smear 17.4 million as racists and far right whilst attempted to destroy the Yellow Vest movement in its infancy. So firstly I am going to show you a quote and ask where you think it is from?
"Britain cannot accommodate all the people of the world who want to come here – and should not give special exemptions for people rich enough to buy the services of organised smugglers. Securing our national borders is a prime function for government."
If you were to ask Anna Soubry or David Lammy they would say the BNP or National Front but in fact the quote is actually from The Communist Party of Great Britain- Marxist Leninist in an article here!Read more
In a stunning intervention Corbyn has come out to support the UK Yellow Vests after he retweeted an article by Unity News Network and said that they ROCK! Alas it is a shame that Piers Corbyn's younger brother has not intervened to do the same!
Piers Corbyn is a former Labour Councillor who still rails against austerity and inequality but unlike Jeremy he appears to be far more in tune with the working classes of this country after previously calling for a full WTO Brexit!
Peaceful & Respectful protests are what makes us British. The Yellow Vest is now a global symbol of the silent majority of decent hard- working people across the world. It is so important that whatever we do remain courteous, respectful and dignified at all times. We are the silent majority who have had enough.
On Saturday the 19th of January we are arranging this so that everyone across Britain can play their part by turning the internet Yellow!
Everyone is encouraged to put on a yellow vest and change their profile pictures on Facebook and share across social media such as Twitter & Instagram using the #YellowVestsUK to get it Trending.
We encourage families to get involved and take your pictures wherever you are and send them to us on firstname.lastname@example.org you don't even need to leave your house to take part and we even welcome solidarity from all over the world!
So who can take part? Anyone who shares our values of openness and tolerance but is sick and tired of the Government and its betrayal of the British People. We believe in Brexit and building a better for future for all the people of this country. We believe in controlling our borders and the rule of law. We believe in properly funding our public services and making work pay. This is what the silent majority believe and we all stand together in Unity.
Firstly if you have signed or just signed our petition against illegal immigration then thanks very much! We will be submitting this to the Home Secretary in the next couple of weeks. Our Spokesperson David Clews put out an email this morning discussing the furore over Anna Soubry & Owen Jones. Just to let you know that David has had over 500 replies and as much as he would like to he just physically can't respond to all of them. He has said a huge thanks to everyone for their input and your ideas for moving forward.
As an organisation we have made the decision that at all of our demonstrations organised by UK Unity we will not tolerate any violence, harassment, extreme bad language or overt vulgarity. Now we know that is not what everyone will want to hear but we firmly believe that noisy but peaceful Yellow Vest protests are the way forward. Simple acts of solidarity and strength live forever.... for example who can ever forget the image of the peaceful protestor standing in front of the tanks at Tiananmen Square?
Eventually we will get our chance to make our statement at the ballot box and nothing hurts a politician more than them losing their seat. We pray and hope that good people will once again come to the aid of our great nation in it's time of need. We have had many difficult times before and this is once more a very Dark Hour.Read more
If you had a glance on Facebook/ Twitter or the mainstream media you will have seen the howls of outrage against the fact that during an interview Anna Soubry was called a 'Nazi' and that Owen Jones was surrounded by a group of Yellow Vest 'thugs'. 50 MP's have since sent a letter to the Police demanding more protection and for arrests to follow. You will also have noticed the BBC going full in on this as well as Kay Burley of Sky News.
Now for the last 3 years we as Leavers have faced a daily barrage of criticism as Nazi's, Fascists & Racist's but as soon as it happens outside Parliament and in their faces it is a national scandal? For me it is the outright hypocrisy of the elites and the establishment and the way they all rally round each other. It is also showing an increasing class divide that exists in this country. Not everyone has had the benefits of an Oxbridge education like our political masters and sometimes aren't able to phrase their arguments the way our masters would like them to.
I believe that something more sinister is taking place and that is the establishment trying to shut down any debate or free speech unless it suits their agenda. Our news site Unity News Network has been covering the France uprising extensively and we keep asking where is the coverage of this on the BBC, ITV or Sky News?
On a personal level and as a campaign we abhor and condemn violence and intimidation. We feel that it is counter-productive to our shared cause and if you look at successful and long lasting change it was achieved through peaceful means. Martin Luther King & Gandhi were proponents of this but during that time their language and rhetoric was considered illegal!
Jin all I’m Lee Sibley you may have heard of me from the local and international media as been seen in local papers such as Gloucestershire Live and the sun and many more mainstream media not the Dailymail as asked them and they were rude. And said who made the petition even though clearly stated. I have been seen in banning homework which went viral thanks to Conor who works at the local people and believes everyone should have a voice. Especially young people and it was thanks to him that I appeared in news as young people like himself knows how it feels.
lee sibley also featured campaigning to save our beautiful countryside which is deteriorating drastically. My view on Brexit is that’s it’s a mess as we have a remainer PM Theresa May who obviously wants to remain and will do anything. The politicians don’t want to see our country prosper. I am 16 years old and I have not been indoctrinated by news or schools and if I believe in something’s I won’t budge especially if I believe strongly.
