Harlow Brexit Party hold first public meeting

THE first meeting of the Harlow Brexit Party was held at the Moot House, Harlow on Wednesday evening.

Neil Greaves, the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Harlow said: “I am absolutely delighted with the response, the hall was packed. Everyone was very engaged and keen to start campaigning as soon as possible”

Mr Greaves outlined some of the party’s new policies. He said: “Our central policy is a clean break Brexit but we have announced several pragmatic policies.

“We will be scrapping HS2, saving £100bn. Will get rid of the interest on all student loans. We will scrap the despised inheritance tax and abolish business rates outside the M25.

We will half the foreign aid budget, saving £7bn a year. We are also going to reform the unelected House of Lords and clean up the postal voting system.

“Concerns were also raised at the meeting over the lack of council houses and the social issues surrounding Terminus House.

Mr Greaves added: “The Local Housing Allowance has not risen in line with rising private rents. London Councils cannot afford the rents in their own boroughs, so they are sending hundreds of vulnerable and troubled people to Harlow.

The permitted development legalisation has been implemented under a Tory government. The Local Housing Allowance has been implemented under a Tory government. Robert Halfon is standing on a Tory ticket. Therefore, he is not solving the problem, he is part of the problem.”

    Did they “flock” to this meeting as well? The hall was packed apparently but no evidence shown to prove it again.

    Policies? Where? Did MickyB77 do the report?

    That’ll be more votes lost by the Socialists then !
    I’m surprised that the Lefties didn’t turn up just to check how many attended
    the first meeting of the BREXIT team.
    Unless you’ve missed it Gary, their main policy is OUT of the EU first, just like the majority who voted for it.
    So did Corbynski, but he changes his position so often, who can tell ?

    Come on then MickyB77 tell me: How many wasted their time by turning up? So their one policy is leaving the EU, I am underwhelmed.

    So MickyB77 what majority voted for it? In 2016 nearly 46 million could have a vote so 17 million is not a majority is it? Doesn’t even come close.

    “Did MickyB77 do the report?”
    That would be a “No”. Sadly, no report other than the word “BREXIT”.

    “That’ll be more votes lost by the Socialists then !”
    Hardly. The “Lefties” are far more likely to be voting Labour, Lib Dems or Greens. Wouldn’t touch this bunch with a proverbial. The Tories and what is left of UKIP are who would be likely losing votes. However I read somewhere, that in one of the recent by-elections, UKIP split the “loony” vote with the Monster Raving Loony Party, who happen to have more policies than a shouty man in a tweed suit.

    “Unless you’ve missed it Gary, their main policy is OUT of the EU first”
    No, their ONLY policy is Brexit. Except possibly for back-from-the-dead Ann Widdecombe who’s “progressive” views are a wonder to behold in the same way that a bridge between Ireland and Scotland will be built on time and within budget.

    At the time of writing I’m getting this error on the above story:
    “Video unavailable. This video may no longer exist, or you don’t have permission to view it.”
    Please may I request this error to be extended to each and every article on this bunch of nutters? Thanks. I am happy for the video to be unavailable.

    There is no one else to vote for, for people like me anyway. There is only the Brexit Party.

    I am afraid the responses here by Gary and kthe5 show just why readers should not take notice of ANY of their comments on these pages for the following reasons …..
    1 The hall was either packed or it wasn’t, neither Gary or kthe5 were there but they would like to throw doubt on the reporter integrity, who of course was there.
    2 The report is quite clear, the Brexit Party DO have other policies, they are listed. 3 If we go along with the numbers game, at last May’s elections less than 30% of voters turned out to vote and the winning candidate received less than half the votes, so we have a council run by councillors elected by less than 15% of voters but no-one ever asks for another election because 85% did not vote for the elected candidate. 4 It’s pure propaganda by remainers to suggest that most labour voters are remainers, I have spoken to hundreds in the last 18 months or so (including many on a coach trip only this week, from all around the country) EVERYONE has said they would never vote Labour again in view of what has happened since June 2016. And finally, throwing insults at all those local people who happen to think differently to both of you does a nothing to support your case.
