Happy Brexit-versary! Or rather it would be if it didn’t mean 4 years of broken promises and reputational damage.

Poignant that today sees the start of the Border Target Operating Model (BTOM) which will require all imports of medium and high risk food products, which include meat and dairy and the majority of plants, to be sent with export health certificates from today. This will ratchet up with physical checks in April and safety and security declarations in October.

These new rules will seriously add to continued supply chain headaches and higher grocery store prices, in addition to prices increasing due to the continuing war in the Ukraine and crisis in the Red Sea. This after we heard that the Canada trade deal and US trade deals are unlikely anytime soon. And the EU is stockpiling 200 common medicines that will only add to the chronic shortage we are already experiencing – for example, cancer, HRT, epilepsy and motor neuron drugs.

Young people set to ‘Make or Break’ the next General Election, survey reveals

True & Fair commissioned research amongst Gen Z to gauge their political attitudes and feelings ahead of the general election. The findings show young people are readying to fight back with their votes at the General Election.

More than three quarters (76%) of young people are set to vote in the upcoming general election, up from the 47% turnout of the same age group in 2019.

Our polling of Generation Z also found that over half (54%) want to rejoin the EU, with only one in ten strongly opposed.

Gina Miller, Leader of the True & Fair Party, said:

“With a general election on the horizon, Gen Z is emerging as a decisive force that could make or break political fortunes at the next election. Young people are not only the future of this country, but crucially, the present. They have the drive to vote, but many have lost all confidence in the main status quo parties."

"While the majority of Gen Z were denied a voice at the historic EU referendum, we must ensure they are not left behind in the post-Brexit era. Crucially, they look forward to the day when Britain retakes its place in the European Union."

"Gen Z is the most diverse, educated and politically aware generation in history. The major parties must take note – they ignore the perspectives of these young voices at their peril.”
