Democratic Brexit

After the Brexit vote, we knew the government would use the opportunity to centralise political power even more.
Theresa May’s flagship EU Withdrawal Act did this by:

  • Undermining devolution by clawing back powers from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

  • Granting ministers wide powers to modify or scrap EU laws without consulting Parliament.

Unlock Democracy took on the government by:

  • Releasing our Democratic Brexit report, a blueprint for avoiding a constitutional crisis in Brexit Britain.

  • Supporters signed petitions, wrote to and visited their MPs asking them to stop the law undermining our rights.

  • Establishing the Brexit Civil Society Alliance to coordinate widespread concern about charities and campaigners about Brexit being used to undermine rights and standards.
