3 years ago, a super-rich elite stood up in from to a big red bus and told the masses that a vote for their pet cause was a "vote against the elites".
The masses had been impoverished by the elites for over 35y. They had been severely impoverished for 6 Years.
The masses wanted more money for the NHS and wanted to sock it to the elites.

Right just stop right there. For Gods sake there is no good strong deal. None. It’s a fantasy. Everything you can think of that the EU can give us is vastly inferior to our full membership including a seat at the table. When are @UKLabour MPs going to stop peddling this SHIT?
For that matter when are @Conservatives going to stop peddling the shit that there is a form of brexit which is beneficial to anybody other then hedge fund investors tax dodgering billionaires?
3 years we have been at this insanity. 3 flipping years and in all the time not a single politician has been able to stand up and articulate how we are going to be better off losing our rights and protections as EU citizens.

HoC Brexit indicative votes: FOR-AGAINST

160-400 No Deal
188-283 Common Market 2.0
65-377 EFTA & EEA
264-272 Customs Union
237-307 Labour's 'plan'
184-293 Revoke A50
268-295 Public vote
139-422 WTO terms
Theresa May's deal has - on both attempts - secured significantly less support than a #PeoplesVote achieved tonight.

But the Government groundhog day rhetoric continues...

The public deserves better than this #BrexitShambles - we should #PutItToThePeople Handwritten tallies of votes for different options
Let's just analyse those figures.

#PeoplesVote secured the biggest vote in favour - 268 votes

Obviously I'm not a fan of first past the post, but it did beat all the other options.

In an ironic twist, the vote share on this was 48% - 52%...

So your favourite voice of @chesterforeu is back and I thought I would share some of our best bits from Saturday. \thread

What an amazing day that was.
We started early on coaches trains cars and planes to get to our meeting point
Some of our people were helping going with this fabulous float @EUflagmafia
But most of us assembled together to join the start of the march. Great turn out and each of us were walking for family and friends who could not be there. Here we all are making our way up the road to Park Lane.

There are so many many ways of contributing even if you cannot March.

@SheRa_Marley, with her broken leg, could not go but spent the day pulling together news stories, photos tweets (I shall attach the thread).
But I have a special request of those that could not march.
The #RevokeA50 Petition is 65k off 5 million.

Would each person who could not march spend the equivalent time drumming up extra signatures outside of twitter and reporting back on what worked.

I have some ideas how we can use that information if a PV/GE

petition.parliament.uk/petitions/2415…
You can call it marching proudly with your keyboards, conversations, helping people not very IT literate to sign up, or maybe contacting someone who might be what @BestForBritain calls an influential β€œgrass top” in the community who might influence others.

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.

#Brexit meltdown 'has made momentum for independence unstoppable'.
Where does it end? If #remain get no airtime and politicians are still reluctant to back ⁦@peoplesvote_uk⁩.
Brexiteers have turned the UK into a heathen state. Media agenda rules.. thenational.scot/news/17505569.…
Social media has allowed a rabble to lead movements that defy democratic process ..
A vote, won by cheats, sensationalising and radicalising opinions that appealed to the most base instincts of an already fearful populous.
Mass media is taking its lead from the loudest voices with the most money. Oversimplifying and exaggerating the voices and agenda of key players who represent the richest and most powerful.

So @trussliz, who herself changed her mind on brexit to be a #leavernow (perhaps for careerist reasons) claims noone has changed their minds on #Brexit. She uses it as an argument against a #PeoplesVote

Shall we look at the evidence then?

1st @trussliz let's look at polling.

Here we have:
(a) @YouGov #bregret tracker. This has been majority thinking #brexit is wrong since August 2017 and is only increasing. This does not take into account last 2 weeks shambles

(B) the 20k plus @Survation poll in Nov 18.

2/12
Now @trussliz let's move onto personal stories.
E.g. Fran from South Wales, she was on @SkyNews just yesterday saying how she voted leave, has changed her mind & is a #RemainerNow

She would love a #PeoplesVote #FinalSay for the sake of her grandkids

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.

Please consider this observation @theresa_may

You've been willfully unyielding about implementing a Brexit that was never advertised during the ref campaign.

Brexiteers have thrived on schadenfreude of remain side's deeply felt loss.

WE DONT WANT IT DONE.

#RevokeA50 #TIG
Millions will never accept Leaving the European Family on the basis of a mandate procured by corrupt and illegal practices.

You're just going to have to accept that by implementing Brexit you'll have to squarely confront the blame for dividing and destroying a great country.
As the realisation of a corrupt & illegally procured mandate gains traction amongst millions of Britons, so too is the notion that 2 party politics, caught in an unnatural circadian rhythm between left & right agendas, is the problem that drove us to Brexit.

We deserve more.

THREAD:

We wanted to take the time to breakdown some of the "Brexit Elite & Political Leaders" who made it onto our ad van, which we launched this morning with @ByDonkeys @RemainerNow - a parody of @Nigel_Farage's foul poster from 2016.

#PeoplesVote
#PutItToThePeople
Firstly, there is obviously 'The Brexit Elite'

These are almost always posh, privately educated men who decided to stoke a false crisis against migrants for their own personal gain, when in reality their incompetent leadership was the real crisis.

#PeoplesVote
#PutItToThePeople
Then, there's the 'masterminds' like @OdysseanProject, @DanielJHannan & Nick Timothy.

They helped create Brexit, and to pretend that it was anything other than a project of the right, by the right.

Then they left, and blame everyone else for 'doing it wrong'.

A roundup of what some of our members were up to today.
Thread/
We had a small group in Ellesmere Port near the Asda. There was a brief moment of excitement as our Emma thought she had spotted some unicorns. Unfortunately she just had the wrong glasses on at first. πŸ˜‰
It was a tough day on the stall getting better as the day went on. The overwhelming feeling from the passers-by was brexit fatigue. There were fed up of it and they just want it all to stop.
We were told by one worried person that a local pharmaceutical firm is moving some jobs to Berlin thanks to the uncertainty of Brexit. I think we can safely assume this has no connection to a drop in diesel sales in Europe. πŸ€”
