The Conservatives have selected a number of European election candidates who are actively campaigning for a People's Vote and to revoke Article 50.
While Remainers might opt for anti-Brexit parties to voice their anger at Brexit, there will be some Conservatives standing in the European elections that oppose the UK leaving the European Union.
In the North West of England the candidate topping the list of Tories is Dr Sajjad Karim, who campaigned for a People's Vote to end the 'madness'.
Dr Karim previously claimed: 'The only way to stop this madness in its tracks is a parliamentary process leading to a People's Vote.
'We want to be leading in our continent ideally through the European Union and projecting ourselves to the globe and winning, not falling down with a whimper.'
