About Leave Watch
Leave Watch is campaigning to hold politicians in the Vote Leave campaign to account for the promises they made during the EU referendum. We expose the gaps between the Leave campaign rhetoric and reality.
It is becoming clear that Brexit on the terms it was sold to the British people is undeliverable, and we will hold Brexiteers in government accountable for their promises during the referendum.
During the referendum, Leave campaigners promised:
- That we would get the "exact same benefits" from EU membership is we voted to leave
- That Brexit would lead to an extra £350 million a week going to our NHS
- That Britain could negotiate a deal with the EU which would retain full market access; that workers’ rights would be protected
- That EU citizens living in Britain would be given the right to remain
- That negotiating all this would be easy.
Leave Watch will hold the Leave campaigners to account for these promises, and expose the gaps between the Leave campaign rhetoric and reality so the public can make an informed choice about their future as the facts emerge.
