New Europeans

New Europeans is a non-party civil society organisation and we do not promote or oppose any individual political party.

We very happy to work with political parties on an individual or cross-party basis on request to facilitate and encourage better engagement with European expat citizens at local, national and European levels.

We are often asked whether we oppose UKIP.

No, we do not oppose any democratic political party (we do oppose the BNP because they are openly racist) .

From the perspective of the EU citize, however, UKIP looks like a party of "Turkeys voting for Christmas".

If Britain were to leave the EU, European expat citizens would lose their right to live and work here. 

While recognising UKIP as an established part of the British political scene, we will therefore not be endorsing any of their candidates.

 

The Candidate Pledge

We do  support individual candidates, on a cross-party basis, to the extent that these candidates make three key pledges:

  1. To reach out to European expat citizens during the campaign.
  2. To engage with European expat citizens if elected.
  3. To oppose Britain leaving the European Union.

Candidate endorsements

If individual candidates make these pledges before the election we will endorse them publicly on our website and social media.
