Quick Brexit facts for busy people
From reliable, official sources
MICHAEL GOVE'S STATEMENT, 30 JUNE 2016
‘The British people voted for change last Thursday. They sent us a clear instruction that they want Britain to leave the European Union and end the supremacy of EU law. They told us to restore democratic control of immigration policy and to spend their money on national priorities such as health, education and science instead of giving it to Brussels. They rejected politics as usual and government as usual. They want and need a new approach to running this country.
‘There are huge challenges ahead for this country but also huge opportunities. We can make this country stronger and fairer. We have a unique chance to heal divisions, give everyone a stake in the future and set an example as the most creative, innovative and progressive country in the world.
‘If we are to make the most of the opportunities ahead we need a bold break with the past.
‘I have repeatedly said that I do not want to be Prime Minister. That has always been my view. But events since last Thursday have weighed heavily with me.
‘I respect and admire all the candidates running for the leadership. In particular, I wanted to help build a team behind Boris Johnson so that a politician who argued for leaving the European Union could lead us to a better future.
‘But I have come, reluctantly, to the conclusion that Boris cannot provide the leadership or build the team for the task ahead.
‘I have, therefore, decided to put my name forward for the leadership. I want there to be an open and positive debate about the path the country will now take. Whatever the verdict of that debate I will respect it. In the next few days I will lay out my plan for the United Kingdom which I hope can provide unity and change.’

Facts4eu.org is non party-political and not supported by any Leave campaign.
We present facts we've researched from official government and EU sources.
Now that the Referendum has been won, we have 2 main aims:
1. To provide bullet-pointed and factual summaries of key points, to help people to ensure Brexit is delivered in full.
2. Crucially, to allow MPs and campaigners to give reliable and consistent facts to the public.
NEUTRALITY: Facts4eu.org focuses on information which shows that the UK is better off regaining its independence and growing globally. The entire weight of the Establishment is promoting the opposite case, so this site is just one small voice trying to redress the balance.
