For Britain Movement Party Announcement - 9th September. Updated
In light of recent comments made on social media and speculation we wish to make an update to clarify the situation.
Jeff Wyatt has left his position of Deputy Leader of For Britain, and has subsequently re-joined UKIP. Jeff could not agree with our leader Anne Marie as to the wording of the immigration policy, due to be revealed in our manifesto later in September at our party conference. As the policy was voted on by our members, Anne Marie was not prepared to make any changes to the initial draft.
We respect Jeff’s strong principles, and are extremely grateful for his dedication and enthusiasm in helping set up the party. In politics it is inevitable people will have differing opinions, and will sometimes change parties. Jeff leaves with our thanks and best wishes.

For Britain Movement Party Announcement - 9th September.
We would like to make you aware that Jeff Wyatt has stepped down from his position of deputy leader. We are grateful to Jeff for his great enthusiasm, friendship and positivity in the setting up of For Britain and wish him nothing but the best for the future.
For Britain Movement Team
Anne Marie - Update To Members - 2nd September.
Thank you as always for your continued support of For Britain, we are going from strength to strength. Over the last few weeks, I have been very busy on the road and have attended packed out events in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as all around England. Support has been incredible, our members are motivated and enthusiastic and I am truly grateful and proud.
Help Our Party Grow
The great challenge of For Britain is to reach the people. I firmly believe that when people know of our policies, and our common sense and honest approach, they will agree with us. Millions of people are waiting for straight-talking politics, and For Britain will deliver. Our request therefore to our members over the coming weeks is to introduce just one person to our party; share the website, or bring a friend along to an event.
In September, we will host 'Brexit Month' (you will receive a separate email about this) starting on the evening of 5th September in Sheffield. If you know of someone who may wish to come along or is active in Brexit-related politics, please let them know of our events and invite them along.
If you'd like to help organise a Brexit event in your area, please get in touch at Enquiries@forbritain.uk Thank you.
I wanted today to specifically thank our branches, who are working so hard all around the UK. I am very grateful for this vital work. All over the country, our enthusiastic and passionate branch activists are delivering leaflets and holding events, spreading the word about our party.
If you would like to inquire about your nearest branch or to set up a branch of your own, please contact Janet on Branches@forbritain.uk
I and Jeff, our deputy leader, are very happy to attend branch meetings, please get in touch if you would like us to visit.
National Conference and Manifesto
Our first national conference will take place in the north-west of England on Sunday, September 23rd.
We're very excited about this and our guests will include Katie Hopkins, Robert Spencer (via Skype), Paul Weston, Ingrid Carlqvist and many more... We will launch our national manifesto on the day which will constitute our initial offer to the British people.
It will tell people who we are and that we have new and fresh ideas about the future direction of the country; one that reflects what is best about our past and our present.
It is a pro-Britain, pro-democracy manifesto and we're very grateful to those who voted in our members' poll. This manifesto will change and grow as circumstances do, so make sure to send us your comments. Member's polls on further issues will continue into the future.
There are still some places left at the conference, so you can book your ticket HERE
For Britain has been active in following up the disgraceful prevention of me speaking at the Lewisham East by-election hustings by anti-democratic bullying tactics of the far left.
A complaint concerning police inaction at the hustings has been lodged with the Met Police's Professional Standards Directorate and this is currently being investigated by them.
In addition the party has also brought to the police's attention video footage taken on the day showing an office holder in the Lewisham Labour Party branch physically blocking people from entering the building, shouting with his face close to theirs whilst punching his fist into his palm, and following a For Britain member walking peacefully down the street.
The police have confirmed the person's identity and have told us that they are taking action against him, based on the information we have given.
Meanwhile, a complaint has been lodged with the Belfast based newspaper Sunday Life concerning a story that they published, which appears to have no foundation whatsoever, stating that For Britain had attempted to recruit a Nazi supporter to lead our Northern Ireland Branch. If this does not lead to a prompt retraction and apology we shall be pursuing it with the Independent Press Standards Organisation.
For Britain is the party of the rule of law. We are discovering how low the standards have slumped in British politics and reporting, and we are determined to work with the police, regulators and if necessary courts to pursue the worst offenders to restore freedom of speech and clean up politics for everybody.
Stand For Britain
In order for people to vote For Britain, we must have candidates standing For Britain - could this be you?
We will provide full training and support and we're calling for candidates for local elections, Welsh Assembly, Scottish Parliament, Northern Irish Assembly, and of course Parliament at Westminster.
We are currently compiling a list of potential candidates (thank you to those who have put yourselves forward so far) and if you would like to be included, please get in touch with our nominating officer Mike Speakman at Nominations@forbritain.uk
Thank you once again for making our wonderful party a reality. I have never felt so confident about the future of our party and our country.
Very best wishes,
Anne Marie Waters
Anne Marie Waters - For Britain - Brexit Month.
Parliament returns from recess on September 4th, and it is highly likely that Brexit will dominate the agenda for months to come. As we know, various attempts are being made to overturn the Brexit referendum result, including the campaign for the so-called "People's Vote". This is backed up by politicians and celebrities and represents a real threat to our democratic mandate; it is a second referendum by another name. Theresa May has insisted there will be no second referendum and we must make sure this is the case.
It's our belief that it is vital for people to truly understand the European Union and its intended destruction of the democratic voice of the people - information is power and the British people must be fully informed.
Therefore, September will be 'Brexit Month' in For Britain. I will travel the country to specifically discuss the European Union; including its foundations and the ideals of its founders, its machinery and how it works in practice, how it is dismantling democracy and destroying peace and freedom in Europe while claiming to defend it.
These events will be open to all interested parties. Non-members are very welcome to attend and local activist groups will also be invited. We will begin on the evening of September 5th in Sheffield.
If you would like to attend or would like to help organise an event in your area, please get in touch at Enquiries@forbritain.uk
I hope to see you at one of our events.

Chairman's Message With Regards To Our Conference.
We previously announced our annual conference would be held on the 23rd September in the North West of England.
Due to limited availability, this event will be restricted to party members and just one ticket per member.
It is worth explaining that a member is someone that has paid their £15 joining fee and has committed to a monthly amount. Please see the link below for help in setting up monthly subs.
Any supporters that have donated may wish to become a member if they would like to attend the conference, as the purchase of tickets can only be made by members. You can join by clicking HERE
We realise some people may be disappointed if they can't attend but I hope all will understand we have limited places and have to apply some criteria.
For people that have paid the joining fee and have had payment issues with PayPal please email email@example.com if you wish to attend. Please see the link below for help in setting up monthly subs.
We intend to live stream, so for those unable to attend you can still enjoy the speeches and announcements during the day.
Attendees that wish to stay over will be given some recommended hotels close to the venue.
I hope this clears up any uncertainty and look forward to seeing members on what we are sure will be an enjoyable and informative day.
Please use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org for any conference or ticket-related questions and queries.
Latest email to members:
I’m writing to you today with some exciting news – the party has decided on some key constituencies that we intend on fighting in future elections. We’ve not chosen them all yet, but we’ve definitely found a handful of seats that we believe are ideal.
We’ve been looking at areas in which our party is currently strong, and areas where we believe our supporters will be able to rally the most support.
While we are helping all branches to prepare for elections equally, and I have been travelling across the country to start new branches every single week, we believe it’s essential that local teams start canvassing in our targetconstituencies right away.
So that’s why I’m getting in touch today. We don’t usually contact oursupporters asking for extra support – we try and avoid asking for help as much as we can – but at the end of the day, we rely on your support to exist.
We need to raise £5,000 to help cover the cost of hundreds of thousands of leaflets over multiple constituencies and to pay for delivery costs. Will you help us? You can do so by clicking here.
We have professionally-designed leaflets and newsletters produced for ourtarget constituencies, and we’d like to get started printing and delivering them next week. We’re unable to release the locations yet (we’d like to surprise the local establishment parties as best we can!), but we have already begun ourcampaign.
These leaflets and newsletters will be made available to view in the members' section of the website in the near future (which will certainly give away out target seats, once we do!). We’ll also be producing templates for all local branches to use, to create their own local newsletters.
I can’t thank you enough for all the support you have given our new partyand the faith you’ve placed in me. I’m working really hard, and we have a great team working behind the scenes to ensure our message reaches as many people as possible.
So if you’d like to help us with this exciting new venture, reaching voters who we believe will be willing to jump on board our new movement, please consider donating today.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Email from Anne Marie to members - meet your new deputy leader
I recently informed you that I have appointed a deputy leader For Britain. His name is Jeff Wyatt and I am delighted to have him on board. Jeff is a very successful businessman, and has also had a thriving sporting career. You can read about his time in motor-racing here.
I'm very excited that Jeff will help lead our party. He will bring a wealth of experience and will relate easily to the voting public. I want to give my sincere thanks again to him for taking on this role. If you wish to contact him, please do so at email@example.com
Thank you as always, let's look forward to an exciting new future!
Very best wishes,
Latest email from Anne Marie to supporters - 22nd June 2018
Thank you as always for your continued support. It's been a very significant couple of weeks for us, the "anti-fascist" protestors have made it clear that they fear us - and they are right to. I spoke about this on my webcast here
We must take strength from their protests. They are against us because they know that when our true message reaches the British public, most people will agree. We will persevere despite their attempts to silence us.
I am back on the road visiting members and supporters and this week I attended a meeting in Ipswich (the video will be uploaded soon). Some dates for your diary are listed below:
Saturday 23rd June - London; Freedom and Unity March, Victoria, 1 pm
Monday 25th June - Hartlepool
Thursday 28th June - Stoke-on-Trent
Monday 2nd July - Southend-on-Sea
Thursday 5th July - Cumbria
Saturday 7th July - Lincoln
Wednesday 11th July - Sheffield
Saturday 21st July - Norwich
We will contact you if you live in the above areas, and venue details will be issued on the day of the event. If you do not receive an email from us, but you would like to attend, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like me to visit your area, please also send us an email. If you plan to attend any of our events, please invite a friend to join you!
New branches are being formed every week now as our party grows and grows. Please get in touch with email@example.com if you would like to get involved. I will visit all branches on request, and leaflets will be supplied.
As you know, we are developing our national manifesto and you will be asked to vote on key policy areas. This will be done online and the link to vote will be issued to you on July 6th. Further information to follow. Our economic policy was somewhat delayed by our campaign in Lewisham, but this is now being finalised and will be published next week. I will also deliver on online speech about this policy document. We will of course send this to you and add it to the website.
When you have cast your vote on key policies, we will include these results in our full manifesto, to be published at our first national conference in The Midlands on September 23rd. Please note the date. We're inviting some very exciting speakers and it promises to be a great event. It will be an opportunity for us to come together from around the country and plan the future of our party. Please try to come along. Further details will of course follow soon.
Given the recent events in Lewisham, and increased interest in us from "anti-fascists", we now unfortunately have to employ security for many of our events. This however comes at a cost, I would be very grateful if you would consider donating for this. It is of the utmost importance that what happened in Lewisham does not happen again. We must be able to speak, and we must be safe as we do it. It's so unfortunate that we are in this position, but with the Labour Party and other extreme-Left activists (and the press) stirring up hatred against us, it is sadly necessary to protect ourselves. I'm really grateful for your help with this. www.forbritain.uk/donate
We will be launching a specific campaign against religious slaughter, and for increased animal welfare standards, in the coming weeks. We have exciting plans for this so please stay tuned.
Our website is undergoing enormous advancement, and merchandise will be available very soon. It's taken some time to get this together, but at last an end to our immediate IT work is now in sight. We'll send this to you as soon as it's complete.
My webcasts will return on Monday but in order for me to be able to do more of these, I will change to the earlier time of 9 am. These will of course be available immediately on our website each day. If there is anything you'd like me to discuss on these, please get in touch and let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you once again for joining us in standing up For Britain. We are a vibrant and exciting party that is growing daily, we will give a voice to the decent and fair-minded British majority.
Very best wishes,
Email from Anne Marie to supporters - 14th June 2018
Dear For Britain Supporter,
It's the big day in Lewisham East and I want to sincerely thank everyone for their hard work during this short campaign. Volunteers came from around the country and I am truly grateful. We have run a great campaign!
As you might know, I was unfortunately prevented from entering the 'hustings' event organised for Tuesday evening. This was on police advice as they deemed the situation too unsafe. I spoke about it briefly here. I'll report on this again after the election.
Next week, I will be taking off around the country again - so here are some dates for your diary:
Ipswich - Wednesday 20th June
London (UK Freedom and Unity March) - Saturday 23rd June
Hartlepool - Monday 25th June
Stoke-on-Trent - Thursday 28th June
Southend-on-Sea - Monday 2nd July
Cumbria - Thursday 5th July
Lincoln (out-door speech) - Saturday 7th July
Sheffield - Wednesday 11th July
Norwich - Saturday 21st July
More to follow....
As before, we will contact people in the local area prior to the meeting (as a reminder), then we will send you venue details on the day. If you do not receive an email from us, but would still like to attend, contact us on email@example.com and we will let you have the details.
If you would like me to attend a meeting in your area, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
New For Britain branches are being set up regularly now, and if you're interested in setting up your own, please get in touch at email@example.com and we will provide full support. You can find details of our current branches here.
This evening, I will attend the Lewisham East verification and vote count, and I will of course give a full update on my webcast at 11 am tomorrow.
Thank you once again. For Britain has only just begun. I am extremely proud of our party and our incredible supporters - thank you all, we are making history and we are doing it For Britain.
Very best wishes,
Anne Marie Waters
Letter to supporters, 22nd May 2018
Thank you for your continued support of For Britain at this exciting time for our party. Here is an update on all that has been going on.
Campaigning is taking place every day, thank you to all volunteers for working so hard. If you can help us campaign, please contact Lewisham@forbritain.uk If you can help us by donating, please do so at www.forbritain.uk/donate.
We are organizing two national campaign days on the weekend of June 9th and 10th. We are asking branches around the country therefore to arrange groups to get to Lewisham that weekend. Further details will be sent to you closer to the time. This is a key campaign for our party and I’m grateful for everyone’s help.
Committee Meeting and Branch Formation
Yesterday, the evolving committee of For Britain met in Crewe. We discussed various issues around how to take the party forward. Our focus for the moment is on the Lewisham East by-election and building new branches.
I have been travelling the country attending branches and if you’ve registered an interest in forming one, I will be in touch soon to help you get your initial meeting organized. I will attend branch launch meetings and answer your questions. These meetings have been a huge success and you can see videos on our website here. This will be updated as the meetings progress.
We have now made the branch formation process vastly simpler, and this will help speed things up. All that is required is a branch secretary and chair to register their interest with us, sign data protection documents, and then they are free to launch. If you are interested in starting a branch, but don’t yet have someone to work with, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will organize a local members’ meeting in your area.
Getting branches up and going is a key priority for me, so please do get in touch; with branches in place, we can begin selecting candidates both for next year’s local elections and for upcoming Parliamentary elections – whenever they may be!
We are very flexible with branches and what areas they cover, members are free to organize as they feel best. You can find a lot of information on branches, as well as recently added guidance on social media, in the members’ area here. We also have a new branch organiser, Janet Underwood, who can be contacted at email@example.com In the next few months, we will contact you again regarding putting regional officers in place to provide personal support to branches, and we will evolve as we grow, but putting the branches in place first is vital. Thank you for your much-needed help in this regard.
Our committee has changed and evolved in recent months, and you can now read the full list in the members’ area here. You will notice that I have appointed a new deputy leader, Jeff Wyatt. Jeff is a loyal and committed activist, as well as a successful businessman and sportsman. I am delighted that he will help lead the party, and bring his passion and motivation to its heart. Jeff is in the process of putting together a video to introduce himself to you. This will be along in the coming days.
I am delighted to announce that our exciting full Economic Manifesto will be published on June 9th. This was written for us by the well-known and respected economist Godfrey Bloom, and we’re grateful to Godfrey for his expertise. It is an exciting manifesto that we know will receive widespread public support. We’ll give you further information about this closer to the time. The wider manifesto member voting will be organised immediately after the Lewisham election. Keep an eye out for more information in the coming weeks.
Membership cards and Merchandise
We have a reliable and long-term printing partner who has been doing great work for us throughout the local elections and Lewisham. This firm will now work with us to provide both membership cards and merchandise. Our website is currently undergoing enormous construction and this will soon be complete. It will be easier to join (including withe new payment options), as well as other important changes. Membership cards will be with you by the end of June. I know you’ve been waiting for these for a long time, so thank you for your patience – we were unable to follow this through until our logo was accepted by the Electoral Commission.
This week I will be on the road again. I am speaking in Leicester on Thursday evening (May 24th) at 7 pm. If you are in the East Midlands area, you will receive an email from us on Thursday afternoon providing venue details. Please keep an eye out for this. If you are not in that area but would still like to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
You may be familiar with the fact that regular Muslim prayer is taking place (unlawfully) at Speakers’ Corner in London. You can read about this here. Therefore, I have been asked to attend to speak there on Sunday 27th May at 2 pm. (I will be leafleting in Lewisham prior to this, if you can help, contact Lewisham@forbritain.uk) I will talk about freedom of speech, Islam, and the harm one is causing to the other. Please attend if you can.
Next week, I will be in Southampton on the 29th and Oxford on the 30th. As above, if you are in the area, you will receive an email with details of this, but if you live elsewhere and would still like to attend, please get in touch.
Become a Councillor By Co-option
There are thousands of vacant councillor positions on town/parish councils across the UK. To put your name forward for one of these vacancies you must live, work, or own land in the relevant town or parish, or within 3 miles of the area. You simply need to ask the council clerk if there are any vacancies. If there are, you can apply to be a 'For Britain' councillor. I would be very grateful if people would consider putting themselves forward for this. If you need help or advice, contact Councillor Brian Silvester at email@example.com This is a prime opportunity for us to get For Britain bums in seats!
Thank you once again for your support throughout these months. Our party is truly taking off and it’s an incredibly exciting time.
Thank you for making it happen and for standing up For Britain.
My very best wishes,
Anne Marie Waters
PRESS RELEASE - Anne Marie Waters to stand in Lewisham East (Read Anne Marie's Blog here).
Anne Marie Waters, leader of the ‘For Britain’ Movement, has today announced her candidacy in the Lewisham East by-election.
Waters previously contested the seat for UKIP in 2015, achieving 9.1% of the vote and beating the Liberal Democrats and Greens. The constituency, a safe seat for decades, has been consistently let down by an increasingly extremist Labour Party. Waters intends to give local people the opportunity to show Labour what they really think of them.
Amidst news that the Labour Party candidate is likely to be a Momentum-backed, far-left ideologue, Waters said:
“I want to champion the working people of Lewisham East who have been taken for granted and used for votes by the Labour Party time and time again. This is a party that is becoming increasingly more focused on faux outrage and social engineering, than it is on righting the wrongs inflicted upon the working and middle-class people of this country. The people who get out of the bed in the morning, take the kids to school, go to work, and come home late at night.”
“Not only will I give a voice to the Labour voters left behind by their party, but I want to tell the 30.7% of people who didn’t vote last time that their opinion does matter. I want to speak to everybody in Lewisham, and show them that a new kind of politics is possible. We can beat corrupt politicians who don't care about the average voter if we are brave enough to stand up to them.”
Waters, a former member and activist for the Labour Party, founded the For Britain Movement in late 2017, with a view to challenging the Labour Party’s grip on working class voters.
In its manifesto, For Britain calls for a significant reduction in immigration, for equal policing and justice regardless of skin colour, for a full national investigation into child grooming and abuse, and the deportation of foreign criminals. For Britain also goes beyond the typical Brexit narrative, calling for the total destruction of the European Union, and greater accountability for politicians and police chiefs.
“The For Britain campaign in Lewisham begins now” Anne Marie Waters said today. “Our party is prepared to stand our ground, stand up to corrupt politicians, and demand that voters have greater control over the direction our country takes.”

LATEST EMAIL from Anne Marie Waters - 12th May 2018
Dear For Britain supporter,
I announced something pretty surprising today. Surprising to me, and probably surprising to you!
I am going to stand in the Lewisham East Parliamentary by-election. Lewisham East is a pro-Remain seat in London. The by-election will be held on June 14th, and I will be up against a Labour/Momentum/Corbynista/radical left candidate who is almost certainly going to win. There is already controversy surrounding the selection of the Labour candidate, and according to Guido Fawkes, one of the front-runners is endorsed by the Lewisham Islamic Centre
And I say ‘almost certainly’ and not ‘certainly’, because I’m tired of the complacency of these politicians. They assume they have it in the bag every time. They take voters for granted and treat elected office as their personal stage, or personal vehicle.
I want to put an end to it.
About 40% of Lewisham voters voted Brexit. And about 30% of people didn’t vote in the last General Election. I want to give a voice to those people, and to the people left behind by Labour, the Tories, and UKIP.
That’s why I need your help. That’s why I need you to join me in Lewisham and help me in the month leading up to the by-election.
And that’s why I need your financial support. I hate to ask, but this party only exists because of your support. This is going to be a VERY hard battle to fight – but we can do it with resources and man power.
By donating, you’ll help me pull off a professional campaign in just four weeks. I have lots of ideas up my sleeve. We’ll need three rounds of leaflets to cover the constituency three times, and we’ll need to pay for office/admin costs…and a few other amazing marketing ideas we’re not ready to announce yet!
We need to really make an impact. Get noticed. But we need your help.
So if you want to be a part of this difficult and daring election campaign, please consider donating, or registering as a part of our campaign team.
You can donate here: www.forbritain.uk/donate
Become a Lewisham campaigner by emailing us your name and phone number to:Lewisham@forbritain.uk
As always, THANK YOU for your support. I really hope to see you on the campaign trail. This is going to be tough, but exciting!

PREVIOUS EMAILS FROM ANNE MARIE:
Dear For Britain Supporter,
Thank you as always for your continued support. These are exciting times for our party.
My first piece of news today is that our trident logo has been approved by the Electoral Commission, and so all of those hurdles have now been overcome. We can now get on with things!
As you know, we have 15 candidates standing in local elections in May in the following areas: Leeds, Hartlepool, Hastings, Sandwell, Yateley, Bromley, Plymouth and Sunderland.
Please get in touch via the enquiries email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help. We have campaign days coming up, so keep an eye out for notices of these.
This weekend we are campaigning in Bromley and Yateley. Tomorrow morning, we’ll meet at Victoria Station in London at 9.15 am to travel to Bromley, please get in touch with Anish Patel on 07712 458879 if you would like to come along. On Sunday, we’ll be in Yateley. The meeting place is outside the Dog and Partridge pub (details here) at 10.45 am. I'll look forward to seeing you there.
We recently held two successful meetings with members in Leeds and Birmingham. You can watch my speeches here and here. Several future meetings are now in the diary, and more will be arranged. Please try to make it along to these if you can, and help us to increase membership by bringing a friend. Something that will help our party to grow is word of mouth, so please tell friends and family to have a look at our policies. Growth is now key for our party.
Following the May elections, our priority will be to install a formal structure in to the party, and to this end, I am delighted to say that a party chairman has now been appointed. Our chairman is Ed DeMolay, who has been a hard-working volunteer with For Britain since our first day. I am very pleased that he will be overseeing the party, and I have no doubt he will do a fantastic job. I will have a further announcement about a deputy leader in the coming days.
We have a full committee meeting coming up soon, where we will discuss this and other important matters and report back to you.
Now that our logo has been formally approved, merchandise is also at the top of our agenda. We can now get on with issuing membership cards as well. All of this and more will be finalised at our committee meeting on May 13th.
I will be speaking at several events in the coming months and I’ll continue to update you on my live webcasts on (most) weekday mornings at 11. You can watch these on www.youtube.com/ForBritainParty These are also posted on the front page of our website after each broadcast. You can watch the most recent videos here, here, and here.
If you would like me to attend your area and either visit your branch, or set up a new branch, please do let me know. Get in touch also if you have any local groups in mind who may be open to letting us visit and speak to them - these could be any political activist group. I'm keen to speak to as many people as possible in person so do help with this if you can.
Of course none of the above can be achieved without financial help, and as much as I dislike asking, please do consider a donation to the party if you can afford it. Everything helps. Thank you. You can donate here.
Lastly, we've had a rather exciting endorsement from the star singer Morrissey. You can read this here. Needless to say, it's both flattering and true - we will change British politics forever. My sincere thanks to you for taking this journey and making your mark on history, future generations will thank you as well.
Very best wishes,
Anne Marie Waters
Email from Anne Marie to For Britain supporters - 7th April 2018:

I want to offer my sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of these brave candidates for putting themselves forward For Britain. This is just the start.
Now we must do all we can to give our candidates a fighting chance. If you are in any of the above areas, and would like to help campaign, please get in touch.
Our Leeds branch has asked me to provide you with their email address for contact re campaigning and leafleting. This is email@example.com Please help out if you can. I will arrange to attend for campaigning days, I'll update you further on this soon.
As you may remember, our Facebook page was restricted and so my webcasts had to be interrupted, but these will resume this coming Monday at 11 am on our youtube channel www.youtube.com/ForBritainParty. I'll discuss the above and other party matters, including plans for the future. Let's hope there is no further censorship! I'll of course post these on the website when complete.
Don't forget to check out the members' area for advice on setting up a new For Britain branch. I'll be in touch again soon, thank you for your continued support.
Very best wishes,
Anne Marie Waters
