Send this to every MP who's thinking of voting for the Brexit deal.
Have MPs become so binary in their thinking that they would vote for a Brexit which even under their own ideology is worse than staying in the EU, just because they can technically call it Brexit?
Let's start with Jacob Rees-Mogg.

He's changed his tune his tune. In 2016 he said leaving was better than staying. In November, he said the Brexit deal was worse than staying. Now he's saying the Brexit deal is better than staying.
He's changed his mind twice!

Why did I support and vote for Brexit?



#Brexit #BrexitVote
I supported Leave for a variety of reasons. I didn't think the UK fit well into the EU. Didn't think our membership was sustainable. Believed it blighted our political debate. Thought consistent public scepticism & apathy to EU elections was part of this. These issues remain.
I thought EU membership brought out the worst in our politicians. They used it as a convenient scapegoat. They pretended to dislike policies implemented via the EU & used this to abdicate responsibility & avoid accountability.

Lieber @RegSprecher,
Lieber @HeikoMaas,
Ich fliege morgen nach Berlin, um mit Politikern vieler Parteien über das Abkoppeln, ring-fencing, der Bürgerrechte zu sprechen. Nach dem heutigen #BrexitVote ist das noch wichtiger. Ich zähle auf Ihre Unterstützung. #RescueOurRights 1/
Wir fünf Million EU Bürger in Grossbritannien & Briten in der EU müssen noch immer um unsere Zukunft bangen. Auch die Bundesregierung hat nun die menschliche Pflicht das Richtige tun. Das Richtige zu tun ist unabhängig von Partei und Mandaten. Das Richtige ist immer richtig. 2/2
PS: This was a call for responsibility I added to my lecture at the Karlsruher Gespräche. You can watch the whole lecture here -- it is actually mostly in English:

I regret the outcome of tonight's #Brexitvote. It is disappointing that the UK government has been unable to ensure a majority for the Withdrawal Agreement agreed by both parties in November, even after multiple additional assurances from the EU. A solution must come from London.
The EU continues to stand by the Withdrawal Agreement, including the backstop, which serves to prevent a hard border in Ireland and preserve the integrity of the single market unless and until alternative arrangements can be found.
With only 17 days left until March 29th, the Dutch government will keep working tirelessly to make sure the damage for NL and Dutch citizens living and working in the UK is minimised in the now more likely case of a no-deal #Brexit.

1. Theresa May claims she has won 'legally binding' changes to her deal
2. But it's not what she promised she would get
3. MPs look like they'll still vote against

.@JMPSimor has kicked off submissions for the claimant, @Suewilson91, in the Wilson v PM permission hearing. You can watch it live here
JS says PM not taking cognisance of illegalities of leave campaigns is unreasonable - no longer can be said will of the people. Illegalities could corrupt the result. PM can't say this doesn't concern her and ignore what's happened - but she has.
JS says appropriate to say that EC's findings of illegalities in leave campaigns enough for the ref outcome to be corrupted as a matter of common law.

A #Brexit extension is “almost inevitable”
- Nicola Sturgeon to me earlier @FRANCE24

Scottish First Minister wants Labour’s Corbyn to
“get off the Brexit fence & put his weight behind [...] something that would break the deadlock”
#Scotland #SNP #F24
2/ Sturgeon on Theresa May:

“she should change her approach... 1st thing she should do is request an extension to #Article50

“My preference then would go back to the people in another referendum- bcs people have so much more information now than in 2016”#Brexit #F24
Nicola Sturgeon accuses both Theresa May & Jeremy Corbyn of
“probably trying to run the clock down as much as [each other] in all this.”

So @Jacob_Rees_Mogg, after last night's #BrexitVote, proceeded to host a champagne party for fellow Brexiters, incl @BorisJohnson, @DavidDavisMP & @KateHoeyMP. At the same time I sat on my sofa and talked with fellow EU citizens. 1/…
Like Mr Rees-Mogg's party that was also pretty ad hoc, so we didn't have any "canapes or nibbles" either. We just talked/wrote about the vote and the impact it would have on #citizensrights. And I wanted to know how I might best deal with the despair I was seeing in so many 2/
that I was getting. Messages that still came this morning. Champagne there was none. 3/3

#BrexitVote – the view from Europe (Thread)
Germany's Die Welt: “After the defeat, everything is possible again"
France's Le Monde: “The scale of the defeat, more stinging than the most alarming predictions, means that tinkering will not be sufficient to change MPs’ opinions, as the prime minister had hoped.”

Why we need to revoke article 50 now.
Politicians are too afraid to speak out against the EU referendum result because they’re scared they’ll be accused of undermining democracy ...
and sensible journalists are also mostly too afraid to speak out, lest they’re accused of being in a middle-class, out-of-touch establishment bubble – which of course most of them are.
But I’m not a politician or a journalist. So here’s the truth.
The Brexit referendum result was NOT democratic.
The Brexit campaign was riddled with lies, dodgy 'dark' money and manipulation.
The so-called ‘facts’ used by the Leave campaign were laughably ridiculous fabrications.

#BrexitVote in a nutshell; enormous defeat combines those between those who think Theresa May should Remain and those who want a Hard Brexit.

The default is Hard Brexit on March 29th unless MPs legislate to stop it.

Russian asset @JunckerEU is already trolling the UK.
Mr. @JunckerEU, who is so much a Putin plant he demanded better relations with Russia after they tried to murder the Skripals, has always been on the side of Brexit; he willfully enflames all Leave supporters including the moderates with incendiary, awful comments.
He’s just like the Russian trolls using names like “Blacktivist” to stir up division, except he does it for patriotism and politics, publicly insulting Britain at every turn to keep us on the Brexit track. The EU does nothing about it. One reason I am #Brexit all the same

ALL of the Neoliberal Globalist orgs strongly support the EU.

The aim of the Neoliberal Globalists is to transfer ALL wealth and power to a cabal of anti democracy Oligarchs, Bankers and CEOs.…

#MayMustGo May is a Globalist TRAITOR to the UK
The Round Tables for Global Control were set up by Oligarchs Cecil Rhodes, Alfred Lord Milner and Lord Rothschild around 1900.

CFR & Chatham House were created in the 1920's.…

I'm going to keep arguing like this and I'm not sorry.
I will point out that immigration culturally, economically and medically enriches our society. But I won't convince everyone in 4 months. So for those who only see it as a negative, I'll point out the EU's safeguards on that.
There are those whose principles prevent them from taking a two-pronged approach and I respect that (even if one such person did call me "disgraceful" for my approach today) but for me I have one priority: Preventing something which would in fact do FAR more harm to EU citizens.
I was sat there on @BBCPolitics #PoliticsLive surrounded by politicians all treating Free Movement as a big problem completely unchallenged until I set them all straight. As I've done with Farage, and repeatedly across news and social media.

There is no left-wing justification for Brexit. This is a project about neoliberal deregulation. It is Thatcherism on steroids.

My full #MeaningfulVote speech to the Commons here:…
This country’s greatest moments came when we showed courage, not when we appeased.

Friends and colleagues tell me to appease Brexit voters. I say we must not patronise them with cowardice. Let’s tell them the truth. "You were sold a lie." #MeaningfulVote #BrexitVote
This is the fundamental dishonesty at the heart of the Brexit debate. Most MPs now recognise it in private, but do not say it in public:

Brexit is a con. A trick. A swindle. A fraud.

A deception that will hurt most those people it promised to help.

Theresa May can't go forward or backward. UK parliament ready to take her down, but she's been the dead wolf since day 1 and she's still here. People without parliamentary democracies don't understand the drama & entertainment they are missing. #BrexitVote
"The vote could be delayed until the day before UK falls out of the EU with no deal." Say what you will about Theresa May, she has created a world where women no longer have to try harder than men, where even the most mediocre woman can hold high office. 🤣
Here's Jacob Rees-Mogg moaning about people "dusting down precedents from the 1860s." 🤣🤣 #TheresaMay #BrexitShambles #BrexitVote

It just gets worse I am nearly on tears Theresa May intends to run the clock down and force parliament to back her for fear of no deal #BrexitVote and if she gets it what happens?
The entire country will be angry and unhappy it leaves many issues unresolved it means years of nothing but bickering over brexit when the country is sick of it
It means remainers are furious for losing the benefits of EU membership leavers will be furious because in effect her deal will be the largest transfer of sovereignty from a nation state to Brussels in the history of the European Union #Brexit
