A new British political party inspired by French President Emmanuel Macron’s rise to power launched a national electoral campaign on Monday aimed at stopping Brexit.
The Renew party, which was launched last year , said it would seek to stoke debate on Brexit as it said Britain’s main political parties had lost touch with voters who feel abandoned by the political elite.
“We intend to be tough on Brexit and tough on the causes of Brexit,” said James Torrance, the party’s head of strategy. “We´ll pressure MPs to consider the national interest and put Remain back on the table in a vote on the final EU deal.”

Since the referendum, supporters of EU membership have been exploring a range of legal and political methods to prevent what they see as the biggest mistake in post-World War Two British political history.
Renew launches first wave of its ‘Listen to Britain’ campaign in front of the world’s media on Monday! The UK’s at a crossroads – continue down the path to decline and division; or join us ..and head towards optimism and opportunity. #Listen2Britain #RethinkBrexit #RenewBritain
