Stephen Dorrell: THE NEW NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO STOP BREXIT
May 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
With less than a year to go before Britain could end up leaving the European Union for good, Stephen Dorrell will be speaking about the latest push to stop Brexit. This is happening now as a result of all the major pro-European groups, including the European Movement, Britain for Europe, Best for Britain and Open Britain, coming together in force to collaborate on a new campaign.
