New stretch target

If we exceed our target, we will also provide information to all Scottish MSPs, Welsh Assembly Members and members of the Northern Ireland Assembly (MLAs). We will also hold leaflet days in Westminster. 

Aren't you sick to death of hearing about Brexit? We are.

Whether you were a leaver or remainer in the 2016 referendum, it cannot have escaped your notice how badly the whole Brexit process has been handled thus far. 

In a short few weeks, MPs will return to Westminster to decide the next stage of Brexit: 

- some want to revoke Article 50 and stay in the European Union (in defiance of the EU referendum result) which would be taken by many leavers as an undemocratic insult.  

- some MPs want to extend Article 50 but have no idea about what to do next, which is simply kicking the can down the road. 

- some MPs want to deliver brexit at any cost, as soon as possible - no matter how damaging or costly.

We at EFTA4UK do not approve of any of these approaches. We think the only way forward is for the UK to leave the European Union but remain a close ally and trading partner with the EU; by joining the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and maintaining membership of the European Economic Area. 

By following the precedents of successful, independent countries such as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland, the United Kingdom can build a new relationship with the the EU, based on trade and friendship. 


For leavers, this approach would mean that the UK would be out of the EU, no longer subject to "ever closer Union", able to sign its own free trade deals (FTAs); not subject to the Common Fisheries Policy and able to speak for itself at international organisations.

For remainers, this approach would mean that the UK would continue to enjoy a deep and special partnership with the EU, with close co-operation in the fields of trade, science, crime prevention and health. Many of the benefits of the EU are in fact identical to those enjoyed by citizens of the EEA. 


In order to bring about such a sensible and smooth brexit, we will be writing (both physical and electronic mail) to every single British MP, MEP & Peer asking them to support a sensible EFTA based Brexit. 

There are 650 MPs, 73 UK MEPs and hundreds of peers to contact. So while necessary, sadly it won't be cheap. Your donations will make this possible. 

In order to ensure that each Parliamentarian definitely receives this information we will be sending identical letters to each MP's constituency office and also their Westminster offices. No matter what happens with Brexit, no Parliamentarian will ever be able to say that they were not presented with a pragmatic, sensible plan. 

Let's get brexit sorted once and for all - with common sense and pragmatism. 

Thank you for reading.
