Nigel Farage holds Brexit Party rally in Cornwall

Nigel Farage holds Brexit Party rally in Cornwall

Published by Sarah Yeomanat 5:10pm 14th October 2019.

Nigel Farage is in Cornwall to hold a Brexit Party rally near Redruth.

A conference is being held at Carn Brea Leisure Centre, in Pool, as part of a nationwide tour.

The doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start on Monday 14th October, where Farage will be joined by key speakers.

"Our September regional conference tour was a roaring success. 

"We got outside of the Westminster bubble and helped to give a voice and democratic outlet to thousands of Brexiteers up and down the nation, while politicians in London were conspiring to thwart their votes. 

"Our PPCs heard policy ideas on local issues from supporters and showed that We Are Ready for a General Election. 

"Now, just as we predicted, Boris has confirmed he plans to repackage May’s terrible Withdrawal Agreement with some tweaks to the Irish Backstop. 

"The Brexit Party, therefore, is needed more than ever. 

"We will continue holding rallies in the lead up to the October 31st Brexit deadline, which is certain to be missed, to keep the pressure on the government to deliver the Clean-Break Brexit we voted for more than three years ago."

The Brexit Party Chairman Richard Tice MEP

A pro-EU campaign group says it will not be protesting at the site, following calls from supporters to do so.

"Although we disagree about nearly everything Mr Farage ever says, he is still entitled to hold meetings and have his say. But he has a right to meet, not a Right to lie. 

"During the 2016 Referendum he told two particular lies - firstly that £350 million per week could be spent on the NHS if we left the EU, secondly that over 70 million Turkish people were about to come to Britain, many of them being refugees.

"Mr Farage is carrying out his democratic right to campaign, but we urge him to do so truthfully and, if possible, apologise for the way he has campaigned in the past."

Charles Boney, Cornwall for Europe spokesperson

Instead of holding a protest at the Brexit meeting Cornwall for Europe is holding its own street stall nearby in Camborne - in the town Square opposite WH Smith from 4pm to 6pm. 

"We are encouraging our members to come and talk to the public who want to discuss the Brexit crisis.

"We are not interest in ranting and sloganising. 

"We believe the facts are clear - a non deal Brexit would be a disaster, and the best deal possible is to stay in the EU."

Howard Farmer, stall organiser
