Well thank you UK Government. Thank you for, once again, happily hanging your own citizens - the protection of whom is the most basic function of the state - out to dry.

Most of the @BritishInEurope weren’t even allowed to vote on having their rights removed.

#FinalSayForAll
Is it because we can’t vote that you disregard us at every turn UKGov? Or is it more than that? Have we done something wrong by exercising our rights to live and work outside the UK? Do you think it’s disloyal or that it makes us not proper, real citizens?

That’s how it feels.
We 1.3million plus used to be living ambassadors for the UK brand. We used to sell Cool Britannia, and our own nations or regions of the UK to everyone. We were huge assets to you, and we were happy to be.

We weren’t traitors running away from the UK but advocates promoting it.

As someone who is a #Remainernow , I’m going give out some advice on how to convince people who voted leave, to back staying in the EU, this is more geared towards people who are indifferent/soft Leave etc...Rather than those fully committed etc ...@RemainerNow #FinalSayForAll
1. Go with mindset to change their minds, rather than convince them they are wrong,most people do not like being told they are wrong, much less even admitting it, besides them realising they are wrong will come later.
2. Understand & accept the fact that the changing of minds will take longer than a 5 minute chat, be it face to face,Social Media,Email etc.. if you don’t know a particular answer to a point they have made, then “park” it and resume that particular point later, don’t bullshit.

@AdamRamsay I was going to Tweet out your Johnson article but saw a link to a 38 degree petition

Could I suggest you use a different site for your petition?

Many many of us no longer trust them since they set up lobbying letters to MPs, without spelling out they supported LEXIT
2/. The pro forma lobbying letter was long and complicated.

Nothing in the comms spelt out that it did not contain requests to support remain or a final say. Nothing to spell out that it was a LEXIT position. NOT transparent

I protested as did many others. No response.
3/. In fact they doubled down.

A while after they sent out a survey for how they should direct their Brexit attention next...omitting choices for Remain or a #FinalSayForAll

Not even an option.

We know when previously surveyed more openly most responded with a request for both

Tomorrow is the #MarchForChange
We have never needed to take to the streets in huge numbers before.
What is happening in the world is not normal but with every horrific statement we hear from leaders it becomes the new normal. 1/
When people talk about the Holocaust, they say 'why did no one stand up and stop them?' They didn't because it had become the new normal. The time to stand up and be counted is NOW! 2/
So let's fill the streets of London tomorrow.
Let's shout until it hurts that we will not tolerate this.
Let's shout in support of #The5Million
Let's shout that they can't take our kids rights away.
Let's shout they can't take our future away. 3/

My thoughts on #PutitothePeopleMarch
Thread #fbpe
Sincerity? Why did so many people go to London yesterday to stand and shuffle a couple of short miles over a period of 5 hours? Sincerity drove us there in coaches and cars and trains and planes.
Only a sincerely held belief can draw over a million, probably 2 million ordinary citizens from across the UK and make the statement they made to political leaders and self serving political gamers and operators.

Over *one million* people took to the streets today. That’s as many as protested against the Iraq War. Do politicians really want to make the same mistake again and live with that disastrous legacy? Either we get a #FinalSayForAll or we must #RevokeArticle50.
Nigel Farage tells 200 people today that he’s confident Leave would win a new referendum. We say, bring it on and let’s see. theneweuropean.co.uk/top-stories/pe…
Glad that @BBCNews is reporting the #RevokeArticle50March fairly today. But it’s inaccurate to describe 17.4m as “the Leave majority” - their majority in 2016 was 1.3 million, and they were a clear minority of the voting public. Also, 5 million were disenfranchised.

I get that Quitters don't like us. I get that the rest of the world doesn't like the Quitters. But for goodness' sake, rest of the world, please don't take it out on us Stayers.

You may be convinced that UK is leaving the EU on 29th March but we are still fighting to #Remain /1
So when we Stayers say that we are hoping for a long extension to Article 50 that will enable us to vote in the EU elections, please don't cut us off with contempt and say you don't want us. What we want most of all is to #RevokeArticle50 but realistically our best hope is a /2
long extension of Article 50 that will enable us to have a #FinalSayForAll - a vote put to the people including @the3million and ALL @BritishInEurope . Please don't tell us that we are wasting our time and it's too late. /3

Thread on today’s events. #fbpe
Despite a cold day. We had a strong turnout for a big campaigning day in locations around Chester. It took a while to get things warmed up as people were reluctant to stop. But soon it got busier and we had a steady stream of people to the stall.
We had some musical and historical accompaniment whilst we chatted to people around the town. There is often a Roman or two around the place giving historical context to the city of Chester. Help us be able to instruct the town crier that brexit is dead soon. #StopBrexit
The streets got busy as there were stalls celebrating #InternationalWomansDay and here are just 3 of our lovely key members of Chester for Europe enjoying the atmosphere.

John @john196201 explains how Brexit's already had an impact on his dental practice. Working ethically, along with the fall in the pound, means he's already taken a huge financial hit. He fears far worse is to come, as vital medical supplies become scarcer. #BrexitIsPersonal /1

Paphos has some continuing benefits from being capital of culture last year. Money became available for renovation particularly the old town. Visitor numbers are up. -
The city held some amazing cultural events and was really put in on the European map. The Berlin Philharmonic played to sell out crowds in Paphos harbour but there were exhibitions of art and history and all kinds of music and theatre

One of my friends just went to a workshop about EU citizens rights. Am appalled. She has come away quite despondent. EU27 citizens, our families friends and neighbours a vital part of our communities, are about to be marked down as the B team and they have done nothing wrong.
Before that she went to speak to her mp who asked her to trust him. It’s a very difficult thing to trust MPs who are unwilling or unable to be very clear and openly support #PeoplesVote with #remainoption even if in private they are supportive
At the end of the day MPs will not actually suffer or be made second class citizens. VPrivate support will not make #peoplesvote happen and this applies to voters. If you are as appalled at the effect of brexit on all in our communities you must speak out.

So #VoteLeave chair @GiselaStuart (who I note quit as an MP in 2017 rather than try and make brexit work) apparently said on @talkRADIO this morning that she believed there were no leave voters on the #PeoplesVoteMarch a couple of weeks ago.

Let's examine that.

So @GiselaStuart maybe you do not believe that #RemainerNow @Will_DryOFOC was at the #PeoplesVoteMarch. In fact he now works full time fighting #brexit with @OFOCBrexit & was one of the thousands of young people leading the march. Here he explains why

2/n
Or @GiselaStuart do you not 'believe' this little collage of evidence of leave voters @damidude @CharlesGallahe2, his brother, @hughnorris, @damidude @snoozette1 @MrsEmmaJK @andrewhardie3 all of whom are #RemainerNow &were at the #PeoplesVoteMarch on 20th Oct?

We did it #The5Million of us.
I am so proud of you all @The3Million, @BritishInEurope, @InLimboBrexit and @FinalSayForAll who gathered at Speaker’s Corner yesterday to say #GiveUsAVote and that we deserve a #FinalSayForAll! #PeopleVoteMarch
theguardian.com/politics/2018/… 1/
We all, like @antoni_UK and I, wore white because white signifies a new beginning and that is what #The5Million of us desperately need: #citizensrights must be ringfenced now, and any #PeopesVote must recognise that #WeAreThePeopleToo! 2/
But will anyone listen to us? The simple fact that we had to find our own place to be able to have our voices heard is devastatingly telling. As I said earlier in the week, I think little has changed over the last 2+ years — we are still irrelevant. 3/

I am so proud of the 700k people who marched at #PeoplesVoteMarch today. All of #The5Million of us who marched together shoulder to shoulder say that #WeAreThePeopleToo — and deserve a #FinalSayForAll. We all, like @antoni_Uk and I, wore white today. 1/
White because it signifies a new beginning — and that is exactly what we need for #citizensrights! These must be ringfenced now so that #The5Million of us @BritishInEurope & @The3Million can finally come out of the limbo we have been in — 848 days today. 2/
Finally, I would like to thank @antoni_UK for marching with me today. I told you all yesterday that I would struggle to march today. I could not have done it without my friend who has been such a fab “bodyguard” to me since the incident in London earlier in the year. 3/3

Former chief of Secret Intelligence Service MI6 Sir John Sawers backs #FinalSayForAll

In a speech he expresses doubts about whether the Europe question will truly be settled through a tiny majority in parliament endorsing the 52-48 referendum result.
prod-upp-image-read.ft.com/78b25546-d399-…
“I believe that all of us, the advocates of Britain leaving the EU as well as those arguing we should still remain a member, should support a second referendum,” he says.
“A national decision by referendum would at least be final and would allow us to start healing the divisions that have opened up over the Brexit question. Only a second referendum will put the issue to rest.”

This may sound old-fashioned, but I was taught that respect is something that is earned. It's not something that you simply demand or can expect, without having done anything to deserve it. 1/
It, therefore, baffles me that I've been told so often that I must respect the result of the referendum. Why? How has it earned my respect? 2/
For a start the result was achieved by excluding #The5Million people, who are arguably the most immediately and directly impacted. This is not only undemocratic, but unfair and immoral. I have no respect for that. 3/

I get up every day, I worry about what Brexit will mean for me and my friends. I make a coffe thinking will I be able to visit the UK? I go into the garden wondering if my healthcare will be paid for. I prepare lunch not knowing how much less my pension will be.
I go to the shops thinking if anything happens to my husband can I still go and live near my sister in Spain. I pack to visit the UK in our French reg car hoping this time I won't be verbally abused. Friends visit, my heart aches, I say nothing. My Twitter friends are my family.
My home is in France. I'm not French, I'm British, European. My life is here. It's the life I chose, given my rights. Rights I've had most of my life. I won't let anybody take away my rights.

I don’t know how you reconcile the country from here.... how do you forgive all the losses, particularly when they were so thoughtlessly incurred and the gains remain so dubious and distant?
@Conservatives @UKLabour

Seriously. How can this end well? How can Brexit ever unify a nation when it takes away far more than it gives and turns people against each other?

How can a vote that leads to this kind of selfish pig-headedness be unifying or respected? Where we all pay heavily for the blinkered resentment of a few.

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

Seems there is even more at stake than we realised.

Brexit is a bad decision.
