An Open Letter to Anna Soubry & The Remain Establishment

Dear Anna,

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.

    You, in the safety of Westminster and TV Studios, have insulted many decent people in this country. When you are confronted outside of your safe environment you start crying to the Police. This led to the arrest of an innocent man who was exercising his democratic right. https://youtu.be/2EH53-WLdf8 I don’t like this man EITHER, but if what James Goddard did was unlawful, Why hasn’t McDonnell been arrested for incitement?

    You and your kind are trying to kill democracy. Shame on you, history will judge this whole sorry episode as the second dark age. The referendum asked in our out, not in our out dependent on a deal or the hypocrisy of the politically correct class.

    I have spent my life educating children to achieve the best that they can. I believe in people. I volunteer at a local school (I am a retired teacher) to help children to improve their reading (which is key to being a useful and fulfilled citizen. The people spoke. I am tired of being classified as ignorant. I remember rationing, my husband was an evacuee during the war. We are not frightened of standing on our own. We ARE frightened of being subsumed into an EU superstate and losing our culture and identity. Accept the result of the referendum, please. We voted to Leave all of the European institutions out of knowledge, not ignorance. We both speak fluent French, can manage in German and lived very happily, in France for over 15 years. We know and love our French friends and neighbours. The EU is not for us and Britain, however, we do not think like them. Please stop and draw breath – you are so wrong. Thank you for reading this.
