General Election 2017

The general election gives us all a great opportunity to campaign to stop Brexit and fight for the UK to remain at the heart of Europe.  North East for Europe is committed to these objectives and will make every effort to ensure that we have a government which doesn’t just listen to the 37% of the electorate who voted to leave the EU.

North East for Europe has been successful in drawing together people of all sorts of political ideals and members of different political parties.  We believe that fighting against Brexit and ensuring that the UK remains in the EU is far more important than party politics at this time.

North East for Europe will not be endorsing or promoting any political party during the general election campaign.  We will continue to campaign to protect the UK’s membership of the EU and will aim to ensure that as many people as possible in our region understand why this is so important to Britain and to the lives of all of us in the North East. 

We have written to all candidates standing in the 29 constituencies in North East England asking them a few very simple questions so we can find out whether voting for them will help the fight against Brexit. The answers we have received are on the candidate survey web page, we have also looked at the party manifestos , and for sitting MPs we plan to publish their voting record on Brexit.

We will also do all we can to encourage the people of the North East to put Britain’s continued future in Europe at the heart of their decision on how to cast their vote on 8th June.
