In 2018, the redoubtable Candace Owens started a movement called Blexit, encouraging American blacks to leave the Democrat(ic) Party:

Black People Don’t Have to be Democrats.

The video in the tweet below shows the remnants of the latter years of segregation in the Democrat-controlled South:

Candace Owens has been involved with TurningPointUSA, headed by Charlie Kirk, founded to encourage a libertarian form of conservativism at American colleges and universities.

Through TurningPointUSA, Owens met a young Englishman, George Farmer, who has now launched TurningPointUK with the same objectives in mind at British universities.

TurningPointUK launched officially last week with three events in London, Nottingham and Brighton which took place between March 10 and 13, 2019.

Here’s a short video from February about what the organisation supports:

Owens and Farmer are engaged to be married. On Monday, March 11, they visited the House of Commons as the guests of pre-eminent Brexiteer, Jacob-Rees Mogg (C-North East Somerset).

This is when Blexit met Brexit:

I do hope Candace is right about ‘a free-speech takeover’ in Britain. We sorely need it.

Best wishes for both Blexit and Brexit — two movements I definitely support.
