The bus, organised by the youth movement Our Future Our Choice, aims to show MPs the strength of feeling in young people about Brexit.
It is fully wrapped with the message “77% of us don’t want Brexit - stand up for our future!”
Unlike the £350m message on the side of the original Brexit bus from Vote Leave, this statistic is backed up with evidence.
Our Future Our Choice are using the unveiling of the battlebus to mark the start of the next phase of campaigning for a People’s Vote.
The first destination of the campaigning will be in Loughborough where an event is taking place with Remainer MP Nicky Morgan. It will then travel the country to send a clear message to MPs.
Will Dry from the Our Future Our Choice group said: “We’re launching this bus to show that young people are serious about opposing this deal. We’re asking MPs to consult their consciences. They have to ask the question: is this better than the deal we have? Is it good enough for the young people of this country? The answer is no.”
Talking about Theresa May’s Brexit deal, Lara Spirit said it would “destroy opportunities for young people” and provide them with a “worse future.”
“The resignations that we’ve seen over the last week show that this deal isn’t good enough - not for leavers, not for remainers, not for the youth of this country.”
