Pro-remain? No thanks
Tories reject campaigners
Three leading campaigners for a second Brexit referendum have been refused passes for the Conservative party conference, prompting them to complain that the governing party is suppressing voices it disagreed with. Eloise Todd, Best for Britain’s director, was among those who were refused passes on Thursday night in a terse email that gave no further explanation. Russian diplomats have also been refused passes. “The Conservative party can put their heads in the sand but it doesn’t change the fundamental and unavoidable truth that public opinion is shifting away from Brexit,” Todd said. “A party of government should always be listening – even to voices it may disagree with.”
The email informed Todd that: “I write to inform you that your application for accreditation has not been granted”.
