There is a wider overview of the development of the RCP here:  by Bob From Brockley.

The RCP's long march from anti-imperialist outsiders to the doors of Downing Street .


"One LM initiative in the post-Referendum period was “The Full Brexit”, an avowedly left-wing pressure group launched in the summer of 2018 to reframe the Brexit narrative as one about “democracy” rather than just bashing immigrants. Alongside a smattering of Blue Labour social conservatives and Lexit Marxists, a good half of its 20 founding signatories are RCP network members."

And here:

'Left Wing’ Full Brexit: A Red-Brown Front for Spiked/ex-Revolutionary Communist Party.

"This front includes Communist Party of Britain members, Labour Leave, Blue Labour figures, supporters (including a Euro Election candidate, James Hartfield) of Nigel Farage’s far right Brexit Party, and even at least one member (an office holder) of the Conservative Party." " ‘left’ sovereigntists like Thomas Fazi and anti-rootless cosmopolitans, such as Paul Embery, the Communist Party of Britain’s Mary Davis and Nicholas B. Wright" " Prof Costas Lapavitsas, a supporter of a minuscule breakaway from the Greek Syria party, German ‘left’ national populist Prof Wolfgang Streeck, who writes extensively for New Left Review..."

Both Bob and myself know former members of the RCP.
