As the former Independent Candidate for Brighton Pavilion in 2015 & 2017, I believe that the time has come for democrats and patriots from all parties and none, from all walks of life, those who voted Leave and Remain, to unite the whole country behind a vision for the UK of opportunity, enterprise, and security. A vision for a post Brexit vision for the UK, for a dynamic enterprise economy, to equip our people with skills to compete, to reform our health and social care system, and to end the housing shortage. It is essential that the whole nation benefits from economic growth and prosperity.

Let us seize the moment - A No Deal Brexit means we retain the £39 billion "divorce fee." This and the £26 billion Brexit fund to cut corporation tax to 12.5%; exempt all start ups from all tax for the first year; tax breaks for firms to make components affected by breaks in the supply chains; and support for farmers.  

The UK must stand up to tyranny at home and overseas. We must not retreat from Fortress Europe to the barricades of Fortress Britain. The UK must play a global role, strengthening our defence, extending NATO, helping developing nations through trade and aid, counter Russian aggression in Europe and Syria, and provide humanitarian aid and no fly zones in Syria. We must increase naval protection of UK vessels to prevent Iran seizing our ships. We must support the peaceful protesters in Hong Kong, and help liberate Hong Kong from Chinese rule.

We must maintain the Union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Millions of people in the UK feel unrepresented by the parties. They want  the UK to play a global role in trade, security and environmental protection; for controlled immigration, enabling the UK to recruit the doctors and nurses we need, and to provide a sanctuary for refugees; for a dynamic free trading economy, with first class infrastructure and social housing; and integrated social care and health. For a society in which the individual is master of their destiny, untrammelled by the “big battalions” and vested interests. For a meritocratic society, in which, as Churchill said, “there is a limit beneath which no man may fall, but no limit to which any man might rise.”

A cross party consensus is emerging to thwart Brexit. Now is the time for democrats of all parties and of none united to defend the democratic verdict of the people. We must put country before party, and support candidates with similar values.
