You all have ONE job over the next 24 hours.
Get 5 people each, who weren't going to vote, to promise you they will.
Sharing on social media isn't enough. You need to speak to the people in your life and get them to the poll station tomorrow.

Tell them: If you're bored of Brexit, Brexit HAS to stop. Otherwise it's 7-10 years of trade negotiations with the same arguments we've heard for years!
And if Brexit does stop, it'll be because people voted to stop it.
So if you don't turn out to vote in the #EuropeanElections, then a party led by Nigel Farage with NO BLEEDING MANIFESTO, who want out when the country wants in, will be our primary voice on the European stage.

"If you're interested, & I'll fund it somehow, I think you're the perfect guy, what we'd like to do is help knit together a populist nationalist movement throughout the world."

Bannon talking to @Nigel_Farage re alliance with Orban, Sisi, Modi & Duterte.
“Paradoxically, this generation of populist nationalists leads the way on international political cooperation.”

@Elif_Safak adds more to #Bannon’s list: Erdoğan in Turkey, Abascal in Spain, Salvini in Italy & far right parties in Poland, France & Austria.…
This was filmed in 2017 & is taken from the new documentary about Bannon, @TheBrinkFilm.

There's a moment in this clip when Farage looks towards the camera, clearly thinking: "I'm being filmed conspiring with a far-right extremist. If this ever gets out it won't look good."

Been holding off on posting this #Thread regarding the #LocalElection2019 going on in England and Northern Ireland, but the results are fascinating to me here in Scotland for sure. There is a clear #RemainBacklash going on and this is HUGE, shall go into more detail on why.
Clearly, the #LocalElections2019 is one of the biggest elections in history for the Lib Dems and the biggest night for the Green Party, there is been a massive shift towards these two parties over the usual Tories and Labour, but why is that? Clearly, #Brexit is a big part of why
How the Tories and Labour have handled #Brexit is nothing short of embarrassing, both these parties have refused to support a #PeoplesVote and give us a second say on leaving the EU. Yet Lib Dems and Green Party have been consistent since the get-go as remain parties.

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?

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...

These people... For God's sake! We let them WIN the #EuropeanElections in 2014! And they're the ones who pressured Cameron to call the referendum. Our country is being shaped in their image!

(Carl Benjamin refuses to apologise!)
What the hell is happening to our politics?!?
"Carl Benjamin"

Don't be fooled: Farage is trying to pretend he's a moderate now with his new Brexit Party, and that UKIP is now too extreme for him, but he was just better at making it look respectable than Gerard Batten is.

UKIP is currently lead by a man who called Islam a death cult on #Marr and who works with Tommy Robinson.
The Brexit Party is led by a man who this video proves is racist.

If you don't turn up to the #EuropeanElections THEY will be the ones representing us on the European stage!
UKIP doesn't win General Elections, but they won the 2014 #EuropeanElections because only 34% of us bothered to turn up.

Can we maybe elect some MEPs that actually reflect true British values, rather than a bunch of 1930s tribute acts?
Can we try that?

Only 34% of us turned up to the last #EuropeanElections.
The consequence of that was that Nigel Farage became the face of the UK.
So despite us having 3 times the average number of MEPs, Mr "Destroy the EU" wasted our influence then told us we had none.

THIS is where your vote actually counts!
