Leave Means Leave is a campaign group formed to ensure the UK makes a swift, clean exit from the EU, as the country voted for on 23rd June.
17.4 million people voted for the UK to leave the European Union – the largest democratic mandate in the history of British politics. There must be no delay, obstruction or dilution of the Brexit process.
The message is clear. Leaving the EU means leaving the single market and the customs union. It means regaining control of our borders. It means no longer being beholden to the European Court of Justice. It means no more CAP or CFP. No more contributions to the EU budget.
The UK must be free to make its own laws, its own regulations and its own trade deals. It should take back its rightful place on the global top table.
Leave Means Leave is the only Brexit campaign making the case openly in this way.
WHAT LEAVE MEANS
1. Leave MEANS leaving the EU Single Market, so we can have full sovereign control over British laws, borders and budgets.
2. Leave MEANS regaining control of our borders so we can introduce a fair and managed migration policy that treats EU and non-EU citizens equally.
3. Leave MEANS the European Court of Justice no longer having jurisdiction in the UK, meaning British law and British courts are supreme.
4. Leave MEANS ending UK taxpayer contributions to the EU budget, so we can spend our money on our priorities.
5. Leave MEANS leaving the EU customs union, so we are free to sign free trade deals with the growing economies of the world.
6. Leave MEANS leaving the Common Fisheries Policy, so we regain control of our territorial fishing waters.
WHAT THEY SAID
During the referendum campaign, Remain and Leave campaigners made it clear that a vote to leave would be a vote to leave the Single Market.
“The British public would be voting, if we Leave, would be to Leave the EU and Leave the Single Market”
David Cameron, 12th June 2016
“We should be outside the Single Market.”
Michael Gove, 8th May 2016
“We’d be out of the Single Market, that’s the reality, Britain would be quitting. Quitting the Single Market…”
George Osborne, 8th June 2016
“I don’t want to be part of the European Single Market, I want Britain to leave the European Union, be an independent country and trade with the world”
Nigel Farage, 22nd February 2016
“If the majority in Britain opts for Brexit, that would be a decision against the single market. In is in. Out is out. One has to respect the sovereignty of the British people.”
Wolfgang Schäuble, German Finance Minister, 10th June 2016
