Help us to win the EU Referendum and make Britain once again an independent nation


Any donations over £500 can only be accepted from persons who are listed as voters on the electoral rolls in the UK or Gibraltar
Welcome to the Campaign for an Independent Britain. Our organisation was formed in 1969 as a cross-party coalition to oppose the UK’s entry into Common Market in 1973. Although we were unable to prevent this happening and did not succeed in reversing that decision in the 1975 referendum, we have continued to maintain that the UK should withdraw from what has now become the European Union. On this website, you will find not only much evidence to support our position but considerable analysis on how best to achieve a seamless withdrawal after being trapped for over 40 years in this mistaken political project. We are an umbrella group financed by members’ subscriptions and supporters' donations with an elected executive of up to 14 members, some of whom represent affiliated and associated eurosceptic organisations with which we work to obtain our common objective of regaining our freedom.

7 Reasons to Leave the EU

It is not even really about the anti-democratic nature of having decisions made for you in Brussels. Today, for example, we learn that unelected and unaccountable Eurocrats want to prevent us from asking if those claiming benefits in Britain are entitled to them. No. The reason we need to quit the EU is even more elemental than all that.
