The Stop Brexit Job arrived in town to push for tactical voting in the general election.

Travelling the country in three yellow Minis, the campaign has taken inspiration from the hit movie The Italian Job and gives a nod to the European co-operation that goes into making the cars.

Paolo Arrigo, an activist who left his business and family to join the campaign, said: “We came to Swindon because we’re recommending people vote tactically to keep the Tories out, so that they don’t get a majority.

“That way, with a hung parliament, there’s a chance that this could be put back to the people.

“We know more now than we did three-and-a-half years ago about what Brexit means and what the implications are.”

“Why the Minis? They’re British-built, German engines, European co-operation and of course free movement of people and parts.

“And so, when you put all of these together, that’s our campaign.”

“This is the Stop Brexit Job and it’s about tactical voting. It’s fun, it’s engaging and it’s a great campaign. I want to do this for a living.”

Despite promoting an anti-Brexit stance, Paolo insists the group is non-political.

He added: “It’s not political, as in we’re not supporting any one particular party.

“Some MPs we’re supporting are not even Remainers.

“They might be Labour, but Labour has a policy of a second referendum.

“My ideal outcome would be, let’s not give Boris Johnson and his crew a majority and let’s hold him to account."

The campaign group were only in Swindon for a short time before moving on to Kent.

Swindon for Europe campaigner Steve Rouse said: “We’ve been a bit beleaguered in quite a 'Brexity' town and anti-Brexit is a very uphill thing to do here.

“This is the first time in over three years that any of the national campaigns have come here. That’s fantastic.

"They’re trying to keep the discussion high profile, if it isn’t enough already.

“It’s quite a brave thing they’re doing because you do get a lot of flak doing this.”

Labour’s South Swindon candidate, Sarah Church, attended the demonstration to show gratitude for supporting her bid for the seat.

She said: “I appreciate the fact that the tactical vote campaign are telling people to vote for me in South Swindon.

“The only way forward to bring our country and our town back together is to put a credible leave deal back out for a final say based on the facts.”
