Labour MP and Chair of Vote Leave, Gisela Stuart, celebrates the referendum result with Matthew Elliott, Editor-at-Large of BrexitCentral and former Chief Executive of Vote Leave 17,410,742 people voted for the UK to leave the European Union at June 2016’s referendum – more than voted for any political party or proposition at any election or referendum in British political history. BrexitCentral provided an online home for all wanting to follow the twists and turns of our departure from the EU and hold the government to carrying out the instructions of the British public. We brought specialist coverage for everyone in the UK and beyond wanting to understand and make a success of Brexit. We believed that the vote to reject the costs and bureaucracy of the EU and take back control over our laws and our cash was a positive move and we remained unapologetically optimistic about Britain’s future as an independent, free-trading, global-facing sovereign nation. Not only was the BrexitCentral website your one-stop shop for news, analysis, comment and insight about the single biggest issue on the government’s agenda, but it used its vibrant social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to help promote the positive vision of Britain after Brexit.
