Best for Britain has just announced the dates for a series of 6 new campaign training workshops it is planning across the North of England in April.

We are also delighted that the CEO of Best for Britain, Eloise Todd, will be speaking at the rally following the #StopBrexit Great Northern March on March 24th in Leeds.
Eloise is a native of East Yorkshire, hailing from just outside Hull, but her career after graduating from the University of Newcastle has taken her to London, Washington D.C. and Brussels. She ran the Global Policy Team of the ONE campaign for nine years before taking the helm as Chief Executive Officer for Best for Britain in January 2016.
In her new role she often finds herself campaigning against the irresponsible politics of her old home constituency MP – David Davis, whose gung-ho approach to the complex issues of EU membership runs contrary to her own views.
Unlike Davis whose controversial lack of concern over the Brexit Impact Assessments astounded the nation in late 2017, she is highly concerned that her home turf will be among the places where the impact of Brexit will be felt the hardest.
“Hull has some of the poorest wards in the whole country,” she said in a recent interview in the Hull Daily Mail. “It was perfectly rational for people to think, ‘Well this looks like a big change that might help us get more opportunities’.
“The point is, it looks like very much like that isn’t going to be the case whatsoever. And in fact, it could get even worse and people have a right to know that.”
To hear more of what Eloise thinks about the local impact of Brexit and the plans of her organisation to stop it, please join us on 24 March to hear her speak at the #StopBrexit Great Northern March in Leeds.
