It’s not actually in any of our hands to make an EU FTA, that’s 100% in the control of the so called government. What each of us thinks is irrelevant because they aren’t listening to any one, not any industry, not civil servants, not the british public. #BrexitReality
If you voted for Johnson’s government and for Brexit and are attempting to blame the impending danger of catastrophic repercussions on our economy because government couldn’t make the “easiest deal in history” on lack of positive thinking or something, get over yourselves! #ownit
Or maybe you are a cummings shill paid to spread these ridiculous tweets. Your brexit - own it!

**Public Service Announcement***

I've done a few of these announcements. Their intention is to make people aware of particularly abusive or dangerous trolls.......

I could just block and move on, but then someone else will have to deal with it.
I figure its in the best interests of the Remain/Rejoin movement, and the British people as a whole to be aware of this guy, and block him now so you won't be subjected to his trolling later.

If we're all silent the cycle just continues over and over and over again.

2016: "The easiest deal in human history"

@LBC REMEMBER 2016 when Boris Johnson said the Remainer claim that we could end up with a no deal Brexit was "totally and utterly absurd"...

With more leavers opening their eyes to the #BrexitReality and the corruption of the elite class like Cummings & Johnson, as remainers it is time to change & engage.

Brexit happened because of a simple set of core lies, spread by an incredibly ..

Sophisticated delivery system. The targeting of non voters. The targeted social media advertising, with real time adjustments to cater to specific demographics.

I am distressed by brexit & often frustrated by the blind belief some people have.

That delivery system was designed specifically to spread 10 lies for every truth.

None of the political or economic problems of the UK were caused by freedom of movement.

Not a single one of them will be solved by ending freedom of movement.

Today is a significant moment for the UK. The Immigration Bill will end free movement for all British citizens and remove their right to study, work, live and retire in 31 other European countries.

#BluePassports
Today is a significant moment for the UK. The Immigration Bill will end free movement for British citizens and be responsible for a down-grading of the economic growth in the UK.

#BrexitReality
For those who still don't understand what free movement is.

A Reminder.

Two things:

1/ Putin's 🇷🇺brexit bots are absent in the thread. Their job of conning you into voting for self-imposed sanctions worked.

2/ This is just the start.

We're all going to have to get much, much angrier.

#BrexitReality #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
It's not even a secret. This is what Putin wanted. And this is what is going to happen.

Are you angry enough yet? No. You aren't.

Putin didn't need to fire a single shot.

A virus uses your own body's mechanism to attack you. For the price of a tank or two, Putin bought the services of the corrupt and venal to lie to you.👇

You aren't angry enough yet. #ReleaseTheRussiaReport

NEW: #Brexit champagne corks not out of bottle yet, but can reveal taste of what is to come.

UK will run full border for EU imports - 'no deal' plans prioritising trade flows to be junked 1/thread

telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/…
Biz groups to be told the 'good news' in meeting on Feb 10.

Radical departure from the October 'no deal' plans, that were designed to minimise checks to keep goods flowing - medicines, fruit and veg. etc. /2
Per source: “We are planning full checks on all EU imports - export declarations, security declarations, animal health checks and all supermarket goods to pass through Border Inspections Posts.” /3

Why do people say "you lost" in reply to your logical points?

It's because they (want people to) believe the will of the people can bend reality. It's called subjectivism.
It's why so many arguments are based on belief or imply the 2016 result means Brexit must actually be good.
We saw it with Richard Madeley who implied that because enough people BELIEVED Theresa May's exit deal wasn't an exit deal, then it wasn't an exit deal.
You saw it with Mark Francois whose only response to the flaws in his deal was that Boris Johnson won an election with it.
(even though the majority voted to put a different deal to a 2nd referendum)

'The UK is at the “end of the queue” for a deal to allow data to continue to flow freely with the EU after Brexit, according to a senior European data official.'
#brexitreality #thread 1/5
ft.com/content/875a90…
'Wojciech Wiewiorowski, the EU’s new data protection supervisor, said the UK was “13th in the row” of countries that are negotiating data deals with Brussels. Allowing the UK to skip the queue “would be a little bit unfair towards those who have already prepared themselves....'
'A deal is critical for scores of businesses, especially in the tech, health and insurance sectors, which regularly transfer data - including bank details and other personal information - to and from the continent for analysis or processing.'

#BrexitConcerns from the ONS about a worrying disparity in our trade statistics.

"in 2016, Britain recorded imports of services from seven countries of £68bn: but those countries registered total exports to the UK of £140bn"

Seems there is even more at stake than we realised.

Brexit is a bad decision.
I haven't a clue why the colours on that pic are inverted.
Here it is.

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change

Last year, when I was really suicidal because #BrexitReality has unbalanced me, I made this petition to David Davis asking for a FinalSay.
you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/meas…

I'm grateful to everyone who signed up, but it made no difference & I nearly gave up.
Rumble strips are a godsend.
I'm OK but I must fight those feelings of helplessness every single day.
#BrexitIsPersonal

Then there was another #FinalSay petition on @HocPetitions petition that, despite @DExEUgov trying to reject it, went to (great) debate in December 2017.

@HoCpetitions @DExEUgov How much longer do we need to wait until we all accept that we need to put the brakes on & check Brexit?

We'll never be United Kingdom without #FinalSay

It's a result we can all respect, however it turns out

Better safe than sorry

Look before we Leave

Trump is Brexit
Putin is Brexit
Johnson is Brexit
Farage is Brexit
Banks is Brexit
Rees-Mogg is Brexit

@spaceangel1964 Please help to put the brakes on Brexit, before it's too late to steer away from the iceberg ahead without scuppering the ship

We need change but not for the worse

Let's Not Leave
Brexit is a bad decision
We need #FinalSay on our shared future or we'll never be a United Kingdom

All the times the govt's own EU referendum pamphlet, delivered to every house, said that voting Leave meant "less access", "losing full access" & "uncertainty and risk" about the Single Market. But a majority voted Leave anyway.
#democracy @LeaveMnsLeave @DeborahMeaden
Here's the Remain campaign's widely distributed 'Europe & You' leaflet, stating that our votes "will decide your family's future" & "at risk" was being "free to trade with all EU countries with no barriers". A majority voted Leave anyway.
#democracy @Change_Britain @DeborahMeaden
Here's Will Straw, director of the Remain campaign, highlighting that Leave campaigners had "conceded" that outside the EU the UK would lose access to the Single Market. "We must be absolutely clear about what this means", he said. A majority voted Leave anyway

On fatherhood and its link to why we must ensure we #stopbrexit and the #Remainernow campaign.

1/14
Early on Thursday my 2nd daughter was born & she is doing well.

Any of you who are parents will appreciate the feelings of pride & affection I have experienced for the last few days. Many will also appreciate the desire as a father to give your child the best future you can 2/14
My 1st child was born in the build up to the #EUref and turned 3 months of the day of the vote.

As a result of being a new father, being complacent & having never been political before, I didn’t campaign in 2016 apart from sharing many of anti-brexit articles on Facebook! 3/14

Big #BrexitConcerns about the 5 serious potential threats to the availability and affordability of food in the United Kingdom after Brexit.
I realise you may not have access so I requested permission from one of the authors to tell you about it. (thread)
academic.oup.com/jpubhealth/adv…
"A new report from the House of Commons Environment, Food & Rural Affairs Committee indicates that food prices, trade & jobs, and food flows across borders -especially in Ireland- look set to be altered and, at worst disrupted, with potentially important implications for health"
Until '54 food was rationed and, during WW2 UK faced serious risk of 2/3 of its food supply being cut off. Today it still imports heavily, mostly from EU. Growth of foodbanks in the UK is a reminder of how precarious the situation is now for some of the most vulnerable in society

#Remain voted for:

A say in whether the EU enlarges or not.
A say in if the EU federalises or remains a union of independent states.
A say in if there is an EU army.
Being the financial capital through which the majority of € is traded while still keeping the £.

#BrexitReality
#EnlargedEurope

The UK has taken the lead in efforts for EU enlargement. It pushed for the inclusion of Eastern European states. It pushed for Turkey to get its shit together so that it could join (which it made very slow progress with, and has largely been undone by Erdogan)
After #Brexit, the UK will have no influence on EU enlargement. In fact, as setting the EU as a rival, every country that joins the EU will a) strengthen the EU, and b) unravels any trade deals that the UK will have made with that country, isolating it further.

If I sound fed up, that’s because I am.

Fed up that we are investing all our effort in a Brexit that is damaging us, & the external perception of us, just through its discussion.

Fed up that the discussion is not honest & transparent.

There’s more. /1
Fed up that the Tories are playing roulette with our present lives & our futures, without the guts to face their fanatics down.

Fed up that Labour are giving lie to the idea that this will be positive for their voters.

There’s more. /2
Fed up that the noise of Brexit is cancelling out any prospect of quiet logic & reason.

Fed up that language is distorted so often that everything is now presented fork-tongued.

Fed up at the speed & cycle of events that could, but don’t, bring ministers down.

There’s more. /3

.@stephen501 is another #leave voter who wishes he had the chance to vote again now the facts of what #brexit means are becoming clear. Good on you for coming forward Stephen, you are one of millions, just need others to show the same humility! #remainernow #finalsay #fbpe
Here is more from Stephen following his visit to Germany. Highlights the ideologues lies that EU will give us a good deal as they need us more than we need them.
Here is another tweet from #remainernow @stephen501 after he regretted his leave vote he wrote to his MP. Hopefully he can also help persuade other leave voters he knows to do the same now #brexitreality is hitting!
