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. 

Sign below to endorse this letter.

    I agree fully with the comments of the letter. No matter how much you and other people who voted remain say we only voted this way based on lies, you could not be further from the truth. Immigration and complete control of our laws was something I believed greatly in long before David Cameron raised the prospect of a referendum. Also I only voted cConservative because of their pledge to respect the vote that I cast. So for you and all the other Conservative MP’s now going against your own manifesto is quite alarming. Basically you have told the electorate that we will offer you the world to get our vote and get your party into government, however once you have got that vote you pretty much call us idiots and we are not educated enough to make our own decisions. If we are so in educated then what happens if you get your own way in having another referendum and then the vote goes the other way and we Remain in the E.U? Will we then be educated enough to have made that decision? The government are meant to be champions of this country yet all we here on the news is basically we cannot cope unless we are somehow under E.U control. I really hope we come out of the E.U without a deal because then and only then this government will answer solely to the British voter. We might be on the continent of Europe but i am not an E.U citizen. I am English and British and nothing else. And as for all these multi national companies threatening us that is an utter joke. So many business have uprooted from Britain and set up in Europe already and that was years before we voted to leave. So why should us leaving make anymore difference?
