EU elections held in the UK on 23 May 2019 have been mired in controversy after UK citizens living in the EU who were eligible to vote never received their postal ballots and EU citizens living in the UK were wrongly turned away from polling stations.
Here at British in Europe we are proud of what we have achieved to date. We are now consulted regularly by both the EU and DExEU and have had influence on the negotiations to date.
However, in order to continue our work, we need financial support. Throughout the last 2 years we have funded much of our own travel and expenses as well as taken time away from our day jobs. We now need your help in continuing this fight. Money you donate will be used:
- To pay the expenses of our steering team so they can meet with the key negotiators in London and Brussels and attend events.
- To pay marketing expenses so we can communicate better with our supporters.
Thank you to everyone who donates. Due to high workloads we are unable to thank all donors individually but rest assured, each and every euro is appreciated and will be used to advocate on your behalf.

On Sunday 5 November, nine out of the ten members of the BiE steering team made it to Brussels to meet in person for the first time. A broken car meant that Roger was unable to join in person but he was able to join by Skype making a full house.
Following Jane Golding’s oral evidence to the House of Lords EU committee, follow-up evidence on the effect of No Deal has been submitted to the inquiry.
There is a serious risk of a political stitch-up in December, where progress falling well short of protecting our rights is certified by the EU to be “sufficient”, just so that the sides can move on to discussing trade. If that happens and Citizens Rights are discussed in parallel with trade and other matters, we will be bargaining chips in the full sense of that term. So it is vital to avoid that, and for the same reasons any agreement which is made now must be ring-fenced to prevent it being revisited as part of the trade negotiations.
