A pro-EU campaign group has launched its own ‘Brexit battle bus’.
The Is it worth it? campaign’s Brexit Facts Bus is touring the UK from February 21-28, taking in cities and towns including London, Bristol, Cardiff, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Durham, York, Birmingham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Southampton, Dover and Luton.
The bus will no doubt remind people of the Vote Leave Campaign’s Brexit battle bus which sported the contentious slogan claiming the UK sent £350 million to the EU each week.
The Is it worth it? campaign describes itself as “a grassroots campaign to tell the truth about the costs of leaving the EU”.
According to its website, it was launched as an online crowdfunding appeal in December 2017, initiated by local non-party grassroots group Camden for Europe.

According to its website, the bus tour has been organised by 20 local non-party grassroots groups.
