Change Britain is a pressure group in the United Kingdom set up by leaders of the Vote Leave campaign after the 2016 Referendum, in which 51.9% of participating voters voted in favour of leaving the European Union. Its stated aim is "to campaign for a Brexit which takes back control of our laws, borders, money and trade".[1]

History[edit]

Change Britain was founded as a successor to the Vote Leave campaign, with support from many of its key figureheads including Labour MP Gisela Stuart (Chair) and Conservative MP and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.[2] The group had attracted criticism for seemingly dropping Vote Leave's pledge to increase spending on the National Health Service (NHS),[3][4] but chairwoman of both organisations, Gisela Stuart, reaffirmed this pledge in a speech to the House of Commons.[5]
