Almost four years after its creation The New European goes from strength to strength across print and online, offering a pro-European perspective on Brexit and reporting on the political response to the coronavirus outbreak, climate change and international politics. But we can only continue to grow with your support.

A no-deal Brexit would likely be the most serious economic shock since the Second World War – with even pro-Brexit ministers like Dominic Raab, and even Theresa May herself, admitting that industry should supply “stockpiles” of food.

British citizens were encouraged to ‘dig for victory’ during the 1940s – food grown in gardens or allotments was off-ration, and so a great way for families to try to improve on what they had available to eat.

Yes, things are slightly different now. Yes, the UK is now a country with 22m more people in it now than then, and with a far greater proportion living in cities and with no gardens. Yes, for those without gardens there is a waiting list of 40 years in many council areas for a plot.

But we say this is all Remoaner naysaying. So download our poster, display it prominently and let's Make Britain Rake Again!
