Former Brexit Secretary to join Leave Means Leave rally
David Davis, the former Brexit Secretary, will be appearing at a major rally with the Leave Means Leave campaign later this month.
Mr Davis will be speaking in Bolton on Saturday 22nd September at the University of Bolton Stadium, along with Nigel Farage and Labour MP Kate Hoey.
Speaking ahead of the event, Mr Davis, who resigned over the Prime Minister’s Chequers White Paper, said:
“The Government’s Chequers proposal doesn’t meet the requirements of the referendum. We may be out of Europe but we would still be run by Europe.
“We must pursue a Canada-style deal which the EU has already made clear they are agreeable to.
“If this is not possible, Britain can still thrive with a World Trade Deal under WTO rules.
“I am joining the Leave Means Leave rally in Bolton as a matter of principle – to ensure Brexit is delivered and democracy upheld.
“I look forward to sharing a platform with other politicians from across the political spectrum to support this cause.”
Kate Hoey MP said:
“I am delighted to be speaking in a strong Leave area with the Leave Means Leave campaign about the importance of a proper Brexit.”
The Bolton rally is the first in a number of high profile events Leave Means Leave will be holding across the country.
There will be a major rally in Birmingham on the Sunday (30th September) of the Conservative Party Conference.
Leave Means Leave have further rallies planned in Torquay, Bournemouth, Gateshead and Harrogate during October.
