The war of attrition over the UK’s future relationship with the European Union is moving to the University of Kent’s campus.
Liberty Union, a student pro-Brexit group, has invited and Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg to address them tomorrow (Friday, February 22).
The Conservative MP has been openly critical of Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of the departure negotiations and has argued that Winston Churchill would have been delighted that the UK was leaving the EU.
His visit to the university will be met by a student demonstration and address by Femi Oluwole, the chief spokesman for Our Future, Our Choice which is agitating for another referendum.
Of Mr Rees-Mogg, Mr Oluwole said: “My generation doesn’t want a future shaped by a man who lives centuries in the past.
“Even people who voted for Brexit can see this has gone wrong, and is getting worse. We need more democracy, not less – it’s time for a People’s Vote.”
Mr Rees-Mogg will speak at the Woolf Lecture Theatre from 2pm until 4pm tomorrow. Click here for tickets.
Members of Our Future, Our Choice will be gathering there from 1.30pm.
