Veterans for Britain Chairman’s Newsletter

Welcome to the second Veterans for Britain Chairman’s Newsletter.

In my last letter I wrote about the importance of continuing the Brexit Overwatch function that we see ourselves in at the moment.  The negotiations, which were convoluted to begin with, have been compounded further by Covid-19, stretching timelines and people’s patience to the limit.  We need to ensure that defence is not used as a negotiating pawn and “thrown under the bus” in the process and keep pressure on MPs in all areas of the negotiations to avoid a “trickle-down” affect having an undue influence on defence.  This is why we joined with  13 other Brexit organisations last week, and wrote to all Members of Parliament asking them to support the Internal Market and Finance Bill.
