#BernieSanders is now the front-runner to be the US #Democratic challenger to #Trump. He is popular because, like #JeremyCorbyn, he is serious about social democratic reforms #ForTheMany at the expense of the billionaire class... /1
...serious action to address the #ClimateEmergency & reigning-in US military adventures. For the same reasons the US ruling class are out to destroy him politically, either in favour of one of his #Democrat rivals or, if that fails, if favour of #Trump. /2
Like the campaign against #Corbyn they are using every smear & dirty trick available to them. However #Sanders has shown he has learned from Corbyn's mistakes in capitulating to his dishonest critics:
"His campaign has also been rather sure-footed in the..." /3

Here are the seats where Labour lost by less than 1000 votes and the other Remain parties won thousands of votes, up significantly in every seat from 2017: Bury North. Kensington. Bolton North East. Bury South. High Peak. Heywood and Middleton. Stoke-on-Trent Central. (Continues)
Gedling. Blyth Valley. Delyn. 10 seats in total with majorities of <1000, mostly majority Leave seats, where Labour Remainers switching helped put the Tories in. But that’s not all. In the next 12 seats, the Tories won by 1000-2000 votes & other Remain party voters exceeded this:
North West Durham. Bridgend. Chipping Barnet. Clywd South. Chingford & Woodford Green and Burnley (the only two with a tighter squeeze in 2019 - both still with massive LD votes). Dewsbury. West Bromwich East. Birmingham Northfield. Wolverhampton South West. Vale of Clywd (contd)

A good day to remember @jeremycorbyn was one of the first to denounce Spanish violence on the Catalan rederendum and asked for the UK to intervene for a democratic solution.

#ForTheMany 🌹 ImageImage
A good day to remember that @CarolineLucas of @TheGreenParty demanded a stop to Spanish violence on Catalan referendum day, called unacceptable @BorisJohnson’s failure to condemn violence, asked the UK govt to stand up to violence, and asked the EU to find a democratic solution. ImageImage
A good day to remember that @vincecable leader of the @LibDems at the time of the Catalan referendum, condemned Spanish police violence and asked @BorisJohnson to summon Spanish ambassador to tell him it was unacceptable.

Sad to hear @GarySambrook89 say he thinks it's "fantasy politics" for children to have free nutritious school meals. As @RichardBurdenMP says, it's a moral policy. Gary squarely in tradition of Thatcher who began onslaught on nutritional standards of school meals in late 70s.
@GarySambrook89 @RichardBurdenMP Consensus at #NorthfieldHustings about importance of international aid apart from Keith Rowe BXP who doesn't accept moral responsibility to support aid & development. Absence of compassion and, as LibDem candidate points out, there's also international security argument for aid.
@GarySambrook89 @RichardBurdenMP Odd intervention from @GarySambrook89 now in which he seems to vehemently disagree with his own govt's housing policies which have created a housing and homelessness crisis in Birmingham. Right to buy started in 1980s & councils didn't get receipts to build new homes.

The withering fire on the Tories from Labour supporters on this website is a remarkable - and uplifting - thing to see.

Coruscating volleys laced with humour. Beautiful.

People will (correctly) argue that #GE2019 won't be won on Twitter. But they'll miss the point.
Being part of the Labour digital effort is a big morale-booster. That will seep out into other places.

Seeing it, as a Tory supporter, will be a depressing experience, however they bravely try to shrug it off. That too will seep out into other places.
We saw the impact of 'vote suppression' through demoralisation via the destruction of awful Hillary's prospects by the Trump campaign. And the same for soft pro-Europeans in the 2016 referendum.

This online action really matters. Labour will smash this, online.
