politjobs job alert UK 2018-08 – Inspired by „En Marche”

Several campaigns opposing a Brexit agreement have emerged in recent weeks. By putting pressure on MPs to oppose a Brexit agreement, they are calling for a re-run of the 2016 EU membership referendum. One of them, Best for Britain, captured the headlines this month because of a large donation from billionaire investor George Soros. With the Renew party a movement is taking a different approach. Inspired by the success of French President Emmanuel Macron the centrist party is reaching out to voters who feel “politically homeless and abandoned”. James Clarke, one of the party’s leaders, explains the strategy: “What we are is almost the more military arm of that movement, whereas we are actually standing candidates in seats to threaten those MPs that are not changing their minds, or are not standing up for the views of their constituents.” The party will face its first test in the local elections in May and has launched a crowd-funding campaign to ensure it can field some candidates in time.
