Welcome to The Full Brexit, a group committed to seizing the historic opportunity Brexit offers for restoring popular sovereignty, repairing democracy, and renewing our economy. This network of activists, academics, journalists and policy experts, all on the broad political left, was launched in June 2018, to stand with and for the overwhelming majority of British citizens who either voted to leave the European Union or, as democrats, are committed to enacting the majority verdict. We are committed to widening the space for democratic debate, injecting new ideas into the Brexit process, and forging ties with European allies to revive a genuine left internationalism.
Click the About tab to read our founding statement. The Analysis tab contains briefings on the European Union and Brexit, explaining why renewing our democracy and economy requires us to leave the EU, but also why Brexit alone will not fix our problems. The Proposals tab provides forward-looking policy proposals and think pieces. The Withdrawal Agreement section contains a summary of the UK-EU deal and a debate on whether to accept it. Older pieces on Europe are filed in our Archives. Our Blog is home to shorter commentaries, links, and updates.
