Is That It – Brexit Done? - Article from Peter Sonnex

Peter Sonnex – Parliamentary Candidate for the Brexit Party in Croydon South, then Croydon Central – reflects on the Brexit Party, his role in the 2019 General Election and the future. Is that Brexit done, then?

“I am proud of what we achieved. I remain humbled by the selfless support of a team of volunteers, coming from all walks of life and political persuasions"

“We are in a complete pickle over free speech as debate, even the truth, is shut down by either cancelling an opposing view or legislating against it”

Council Tax and Changing Croydon Council

Last week Croydon's councillors both Labour and Conservative, voted for the following bumper Council Tax increases.
  • A 1.99% increase in the Council Tax for Croydon Services
  • A 2.00% increase in the Adult Social Care precept
  • The GLA increase of 3.6%.
We have written many times of the ways Croydon Council wastes your money.  Well a campaign is well underway to change Croydon Council.  DEMOC the campaign for a Democratically Elected Mayor of Croydon

Launched to packed meetings the campaign now has over 12,000 of the 15,000 signatures needed to trigger a local referendum to challenge the vested interests in the council.  For full disclosure Mike sits on the organising committee.
