Time to unite behind Vote Leave

Do not under any circumstances mount a judicial review of the Electoral Commission decision to nominate Vote Leave as the official opposition group. We have less than 3 months to 23rd June and a lot of votes to win so lets not waste time on internal squabbles.

I pay tribute to Nigel Farage for squeezing this referendum out of Dodgy Dave. Without NF we would not have this great chance of leaving the EU. Farage still has a part to play before and more importantly after 23rd June if we win because the EU will try to ignore the result and demand a re-run and that will be Farage's real contribution in taking on the undemocratic EU in Brussels. We could however never win the referendum however with Farage as leader.

The battle has to be won on the centre ground with Labour women's votes so there is no doubt in my mind Gisela Stuart should lead the Out campaign. She is a nice lady whom Dave will find very difficult to attack with his Flashman personna. He won't even try as he knows it will make him look bad. Remember what happened to Heath at the hands of Mrs Thatcher.

Backing up Gisela I would have Priti Patel and Michael Gove. For the economic intellectual statistical stuff Dan Hannan, BoJo for the knockabout, and Lawson for the gravitas.

I would not use any UKIPers. With the exception of Farage they are just not good enough. They should be used for door knocking and local rallies. We don't have to worry about Tory votes male or female. They will overwhelmingly vote out..

The campaign should be targetted at Labour voters. Portray it as working people versus an arrogant political elite. Challenge Labour voters to vote for a posh boy old Etonian Cameron and remind them what happened to Scottish Labour when they shared a platform with the Tories. Also if they want rid of Cameron and Osborne now is their best chance. If we win the referendum Cameron will very quickly resign. The subsequent Tory leadership contest will be between Bojo & Gove and I would expect Gove to win and form a new cabinet without Osborne as Chancellor. That gives Labour a better chance of winning in 2020 than they have at present. Now that's an offer they can't refuse!

Handled well we will win!

Good campaign plan. We are not connecting with young people or the trade union movement apart from a few notable exceptions. At some point LEAVE have to present a credible vision for an exit. On Newsnight we had Grayling in debate not knowing where legislation comes from.

Yes, Leave has to up its game soon.

Why not also use someone from the 'Leave Alliance'? 'The Market Solution' will remove many of the arguments put forward by the Remainers. see:

I agree Mr Rotherham why not but let it be a woman!
