Barking up the wrong tree. EU has never held us against our will. We could have left at any time. The problem was always the pointy building on the Thames. EU membership is a symptom of the problem not the cause. The UK's model of "democracy" has barely evolved from feudalism.
The worst aspect of the #BrexitParty is that they now only want #Brexit for its own sake. They'll vanish into the ether after Brexit day leaving the rest to clean up the mess. They've no plan for what comes next which leave the job only have done.
If the leave movement had any kind of intelligent, studied agenda, theyd realise EU is only part of the problem - and to address the problem of Westminster they'd need to carry the momentum of Brexit forward. But for them this isn't about outcomes. Just Brexit for its own sake

THREAD of LEGENDS

To mark #3Years since the largest vote for anything in the UK’s history let’s celebrate the MPs, who by their actions in Parliament, have kept our #Brexit dream alive. They are an elite band of #BrexitSpartans. Every one a #BrexitLegend

#TheBrexit40

1/14
In this majority Remain Parliament there are only 40 MPs (6%) who’ve fought, under sustained pressure, to uphold the will of the British people as expressed in #EURef2016

28 #Conservatives
10 #DUP
2 #Labour

Here they are below. Please give them a RT

🇪🇺🗳️ Quelques commentaires sur les résultats de ces élections européennes en France et dans les grands pays européens. #EUelections2019
🇪🇺🗳️🇫🇷 On commence par la France. Le @RNational_off en tête, c’est évidemment un succès pour #LePen qui, parallèlement à #Macron, avait installé ce duel dans les médias mais aussi dans l’opinion.
🇪🇺🗳️🇫🇷 Le RN a bénéficié de la très grande solidité de son électorat : 78% des électeurs de @MLP_officiel au premier tour de la présidentielle de 2017 ont voté pour la liste @RNational_off.

Important result that Tories lost twice as many seats to #Remain parties than #BrexitParty. BXP swapped for 23 UKIP and gained extra 5 to get 28. Tories lost 15 seats - 5 to BXP and 10 to Remain.
#EUelections2019 #EP2019
Conservative MPs must be aware that it's too late for new members to join & vote in #ToryLeadershipContest. However, if a general election is coming, there will probably be time to take part in selections/deselections of MP. This may be by #Remain voters.
#EUelections2019
6M plus signed a petition to revoke Article 50. If 2.5% of them joined the Conservatives, then they would be likely bigger than the current membership. Won't be enough time for #ToryLeadership in the #ToryLeadershipContest but possibly enough time before any General Election.

1/ How might the Brexit Party hit the Conservative Party at a general election?

A short thread detailing figures in today's Telegraph bit.ly/2JHFILd

#EP2019 #EUelections2019
#brexit #brexitparty
2/ With Prime Minister May on her way out, the Brexit Party about to surge & the Conservative Party's future unclear we've run some numbers on how the Brexit Party could hit the Conservatives at a general election
3/ This combines constituency level data on 2017 general election with recent Westminster vote intention polls to estimate the flow of voters to the Brexit Party, giving us median and maximum estimates

Nigel Farage is a racist climate change denier who hides his tax dealings, supports authoritarian leaders across the globe and associates with known conspiracy theorists.

But do take my word for it. THREAD.
So, just to preface this. I won't be talking much about Brexit here. The reason being - it's been done. To death. And to the detriment of debate about how dangerous Farage actually is, and what he actually believes. We'll touch on it, but it ain't front row centre.
It's hard to know where to start with Farage, frankly. After doing the research that I have on him, it's stunning to think that he's the favourite for the European Elections. Sorry, stunning? I meant horrifying. But let's start with the young Farage, and work our way from there.

Vote for #Farage and get this. This man is Crispin Odey. He bankrolled #VoteLeave and made 220m when leave won by shorting the pound. Farage helped the markets to fluctuate when he 'conceded' the referendum early. You are being used to fill their pockets. #BrexitParty #EUElection
Odey also has links to Rees-Mogg. He helped Jacob set up his hedge fund, and also helped towards his election costs. They are all in this together, they pretend to care about the working-class, but in truth they are exploiting us to make more money. ft.com/content/a42110…
Thank you to everyone that has RT this so far, please keep sharing it, it may help some people change their minds about the #EUElections2019

#Breaking: Far-left activists and provocateurs, had milkshake throw on #BrexitParty leader Nigel Farage.
#Update: Just in - Video of Nigel Farage hit with milkshake while campaigning in #Newcastle today.
#Update: Statement Nigel Farage

"Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible.

For a civilised democracy to work you need the losers consent, politicians not accepting the referendum result have led us to this."

As the #BrexitParty meets in #Fylde this afternoon with #NigelFarage #AnnWiddecombe, #ClaireFox and others, here's a thread on "The Brexit Party, the RCP and the Brighton bombing". 1/8
Ms Fox was a member of the RCP when the IRA planted a bomb at the Grand Hotel Brighton in 1984 where the Tory Party conference was taking place. 2/8
totalpolitics.com/articles/news/…
The RCP view on the bombing was "We support unconditionally the right of the Irish people to carry out their struggle for national liberation in whatever way they choose". 3/8

What kind of person chooses to use specifically NON-European people fleeing war, who have no EU rights to enter the UK, as a political tool to scare people about immigration from EU countries?
#EuropeanElections #BrexitParty
As much as I criticise the failure of our media in 2016, @krishgm did an absolutely stellar job taking Nigel Farage apart on the blatant racism behind that poster in 2016.
Just to back up the law behind the points we're making...

You can't argue that we should vote to leave the EU on the basis of getting a proper trade deal, and then complain that we haven't left the EU without one.
#EuropeanElections2019
That includes you Nigel Farage.
When you passionately defended the idea of leaving the EU and staying in the Single Market, you lost the right to say we should leave without a deal.
In fact, you made it morally disgusting for yourself to do so.
#BrexitParty #EuropeanElections2019
That includes @DominicRaab.
Dominic Raab said the idea of leaving the EU without a deal was scaremongering.
He wasn't even talking about the damage from no deal; Dominic Raab said the very concept of leaving without a deal was Project Fear

A short thread about Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party candidates from Spiked (Claire Fox & Alka Cuthbert - also active in the Full Brexit pressure group), their Northern Ireland backstory, and the crapness of our media:
1/ A while back I looked at Sunday Times allegations about Jeremy Corbyn’s IRA links brockley.blogspot.com/2018/09/jeremy… with a follow up about the Warrington bombings and the general climate on the left at the time brockley.blogspot.com/2018/09/three-…
2/ I noted that most of the left were broadly pro-Republican in the 1980s, for good reasons, but that the Warrington bombings & similar atrocities turned the tide. Even the most hardcore pro-IRA groups supported the peace process.

With the news that "ex-communist" #ClaireFox is standing for the #BrexitParty of #NigelFarage (with the backing of @spikedonline - Ed. Brendan O'Neill), let's have a look at the views of the RCP/LivingMarxism/Spiked on Irish Republicanism over the years. 1/11
The RCP (aka RCT then) refused to "condemn or criticise the Birmingham bombings". (The Next Step. No. 3 1980) 2/11

dropbox.com/sh/xtgcvlcxbff…
Indeed they held the view that only when "large numbers of British workers respond to IRA bombs with jubilation" would they consider criticising the Provos. (The Next Step No. 10. 1981) 3/11

When #NigelFarage left #UKIP he started to re-invent himself. He's not talking about immigration any more. He's talking about being the saviour of democracy, and leaving UKIP to be the extremists. He's trying to attract a more moderate voter. The polls seem to show this working
I wonder, if he does well if the #EuropeanElections2019 and the #Brexit mess in Parliament continues, it might give some #ERG members the confidence to cross the floor. Will they have confidence that they can re-elected on a #BrexitParty ticket.
That would then likely cause a general election as the government would not be able to pass anything. The #Conservatives would not have time to sort out a new leader so #TheresaMay could end up leading them into it. They could get slaughtered.

He lied about immigration to win the Brexit vote and only came clean after:
Nigel Farage admits he doesn't really mind if Brexit makes British people poorer.

So, where are we today? Overall I would say that the #Labour #Corbyn strategy is working well, and is likely to see Jez in No. 10 at some point in the next year or just over a year.
The #Conservatives are experiencing what looks to me rather like damage ERM crisis did to them in autumn 1992. Have lost 13 points (!) with @YouGov in just six weeks. Bear in mind that experience shows that such falls get worse for some time - could be headed v low.
The moment MV3 failed to pass was a clarifying one, and therefore welcome here - had been wondering for years what was keeping the CON score so high. It was #Brexit. We're now at 50/50 whether it even happens. They will struggle to recover.

Look at the state of the bottom of this list.
@Nigel_Farage is ranked 747th out of 751 for MEP voting.
Less than 40% of votes.
Taking taxpayers money & doing nothing.
One of the very worst lazy, overpaid, "gravy train" MEPs Leavers are always railing about.

On 29 Mar, I stopped being a @Conservatives Party member, supporter and activist.

This account is being reconfigured. Some old followers may be dismayed. Many new ones won’t.

So what next?

A thread 1/

#Brexit #ConservativeParty #BrexitParty
My #Leave vote was about sovereignty and recovering powers lost to Brussels.

Like everyone else, I expected the result to be honoured just as no less than 2 Prime Ministers and all the party leaders promised us that it would be. 2/
Brexit has done us a favour. It has revealed that democracy in this country is a myth.

It turned out that, as usual, MPs’ public proclamations and manifesto promises were utter lies.

If implementing a democratic choice is populism , then I’m now a populist. 3/
