Treasure our Eurosceptic story by supporting the new Museum of Brexit

Our Secretary - Gawain Towler writes,

There is much to read into George Orwell’s infamous comment about history, 'Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past’. There is also much that is bunk.

In the mature pluralistic democracy that is the UK of the early 21st century, the fears that he encapsulated in those words are irrelevant. He was writing at a time of political dictatorship and intellectual monoculture.

Our Chairman, Dr Lee Rotherham writes,

The visitor to Brussels has long been spoiled by its museums. Despite its street feel as a provincial Gallic backwater, the city is a national capital with Roman foundations, Hapsburg buttresses, and the spoils of colonial dominion.

But none of these museums have suited the city’s growing role as the capital of the European Union...

A Brexit museum? The North East could become home to it, say campaign organisers

Plans for a ‘Brexit museum’ have been launched and organisers say a North East city could eventually house it.

Sunderland was famously the first place in Britain to declare its support for Leave on the night of the EU referendum in June 2016.

And its place in history could further be cemented if the people behind the museum decided to locate it there.
