OFOC today buried Brexit at the Conservative Party Conference in the International Convention Centre in Birmingham. The group were briefly joined by Mr. Jacob Rees-Mogg, MP for Somerset, who was there for the burial of his pet political project.
The funeral rites included a hearse and coffin, pallbearers, a gravestone, and finally a eulogy for the two year-old idea. Mr. Rees-Mogg’s attendance was the cherry on the cake of a sober interment of the broken promises of leading Leave figures like himself, whose grand visions could never quite materialise into realistic proposals.
With Brexit having passed on, it is clear that a People's Vote on the final deal is the only way forward.
OFOC spokesperson Cathleen Clarke, who delivered the eulogy, said: “I laid Brexit to rest. Little did I know that one of this project’s forefathers would be stopping by to see the funeral rites of his political progeny.”
“Credit to Jacob Rees-Mogg - he did the decent thing. It was nice of him to stop by as his brainchild, Brexit, passed on into the political afterlife.”
OFOC co-president Lara Spirit added: “It was great to see Mr. Rees-Mogg have to face up to the facts of Brexit’s mortality. Brexit’s two years of life were nasty, brutish, and short, and finally it has expired as a political idea. My generation realised this a long time ago. Hopefully with today’s intervention, Mr. Rees-Mogg will begin realising it too.”
“Today we have buried Brexit. Absent Mr. Rees-Mogg and Mr. Farage’s voodoo politics, we won’t raise this woebegone idea from the crypt. Sunlit uplands are ahead, but they won’t include Brexit, and it’s time our leaders woke up to that fact.”

Brexit is a mess which threatens our generation's future.
It will cost us jobs, leave us with fewer opportunities, and divide our country.
78% of young people are against Brexit. We shouldn't have to live with something we don't want. If we mobilise, we can stop it.

78% of young people would vote to remain in the EU, according to a landmark poll by YouGov. The survey of 1645 people aged 18-24 also revealed that 64% are “absolutely certain to vote” in a referendum on EU membership.
Support is highest among those who didn't get a vote in 2016: 84% claim that they would now vote to remain a member of the EU. 91% of young Labour voters, meanwhile, would vote Remain.
“This poll shows that young people believe only a People’s Vote can safeguard their futures,” said OFOC chief spokesperson Femi Oluwole. Young people blame the government for the Brexit shambles and the polls show that this generation will follow through by punishing MPs at the ballot box.”
“Young people don’t want to live in a Britain that will result in a fewer jobs, a broken NHS, higher taxes, and no future for their children. But that is exactly what this poll shows they believe will happen after Brexit. There’s only one answer - a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”
Not only are young voters turning against Brexit, but through demographic shifts the UK will support remain as a nation by January 2019. The original majority of 1,269,501 is falling by 1,350 votes every day – meaning it will have disappeared completely two months before the official Brexit date.
Trust in the establishment is low: only 21% of young people are confident that the government will take the right decisions on Brexit, and only 27% trust parliament.
“Young people are mobilising like never before," said OFOC co-president Lara Spirit. We are growing a grassroots network of activists that spans both major university campuses but also several regions that voted heavily to Leave. Young people across all walks of life are united in their opposition to Brexit - they do not want to inherit and live with this mess.”
