Ed – One of the most consistent and rational organisations during Brexit has been the Labour Leave campaign. They are closer to the true Labour movement of ordinairy working men and women than Corbyn’s ‘Labour’ of left-wing extremism.

In her statement to the House of Commons this week, the Prime Minister said that the United Kingdom would “respect the remit” of the European Court of Justice after we leave the European Union.
During the referendum we voted to take back control of our laws, our trade, our borders and our money. That is what the British people, by majority voted for.
We are happy to respect the remit of the European Court of Justice provided that remit ends at Calais and doesn’t arrive in Dover. Under no circumstances can the European Court of Justice and its judgments take precedence over UK law and UK courts.
We will not accept any terms that allow foreign courts to determine UK law after Brexit.
We have to remain on our guard as the Brexit negotiations continue. By no means are we out of the woods yet. We still have months of negotiating to go and although the Prime Minister is making some progress, it is vague and packed with major concessions to the EU.
The Prime Minister said that decisions of the European Court of Justice will “continue to affect us“. This should worry all Brexiteers because we voted for them not to affect us.
We will continue to campaign and work for the clean Brexit that we all voted for – an independent, global and sovereign Britain.
Thank you for your continuing support.
