Significant funds are being ploughed into attempts to force a second referendum by remainers intent on refusing to accept the majority decision to leave the European Union, warns West Midlands MEP James Carver.
The latest of a series of job adverts appearing online is for a People’s Vote campaigns officer, based in Scotland and working for the European Movement UK, offering a salary of £25,000 to £27,000 pro rata for a six-month fixed term contract.
Mr Carver said he found it “disturbing” that the advert was on the Working for an MP website, w4mp, a resource for anyone working for a British Member of Parliament.
“I query whether it’s right to be promoting a campaign aimed at undermining what the majority of people have voted for on a Westminster website,” he said.
The People’s Vote petition has attracted a quarter of a million signatures and the European Movement, which founded the campaign, says six million leave voters would need to be persuaded to vote remain in a second referendum to stop Brexit in its tracks
Independent MEP Mr Carver, who has recently spoken at Herefordshire for Brexit and Hampshire Out events, warned it was vital that Brexiteers keep up the pressure by supporting campaigns like these.
He said: “There is obviously a lot of money going into trying to stop Brexit and we must do all we can to counter that by bombarding MPs and ministers with reminders that the Conservative government promised during the referendum, following the leave vote and in the snap general election to carry out the will of the people.
“They must not be allowed to renege on that.”
