On Monday, a new British political party that is inspired by the rise to power of Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, launched a national electoral campaign that is aimed at stopping Brexit.

The Renew party, which was launched in 2017, said that it would seek to stoke debate on Brexit as it said that the main political parties of Britain had lost touch with voters who feel left out by the political elite.

The head of strategy of the party, James Torrance, stated: “We intend to be tough on Brexit and tough on the causes of Brexit. We’ll pressure MPs to consider the national interest and put Remain back on the table in a vote on the final EU deal.”

Since the Brexit referendum, supporters of EU membership have been exploring a series of legal and political methods in order to prevent what they perceive as the biggest mistake in post-World War Two British political history.

Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, whose government and party is split over Brexit, has only eight months in order to strike a withdrawal deal with the European Union but insists that Britain will leave at 2300 GMT on the 29th of March, 2019.
