My thread on how to beat Leavers (sorry!)
1/ I was a Leave voter. I have become a #Remainernow, but there is one key piece of the Brexiteer psyche I don’t feel is being engaged with by any of the Remain parties. You see, every Brexiteer is a hero.
2/ It’s a wonderful feeling – a sincere belief that you are doing the right thing, and all obstacles and sacrifices are actually proof that you are on the right track. The reaction to “Project Fear” is a case in point; clearly Remainers were cowards.
3/ In fact, it doesn’t matter if every prediction comes true to them – it just highlights the length they are willing to go to succeed in their quest; how heroic they are. The more sacrifice, the more it must be worth it in the end. It gives a sense of empowerment that emboldens.

This week we decided for our Saturday Campaign we would do a mini #pvroadtrip and go and visit the constituents of @justinmadders. We went to Ellesmere Port and Neston. But we decided we would ask a different question this week. #fbpe #peoplesvote
After some recent press reports that Brexit itself is costing us £550million per week in lost growth and the 4 billion pound no-deal contingency has been shelved, we wondered what @justinmadders constituents priorities were in terms of how to spend this #remaindividend.

There is no version of brexit which puts an end to it. Deal or no-deal we will be negotiating and putting broken brexit things back together for a decade or more. The only way to end is #RevokeA50
Lilico displays the same close your eyes and cross your fingers recklessness that Brexiters have employed since before the referendum. They still have NO solutions to the myriad of problems brexit has thrown up.
All they can do is to tell you to close your eyes and have faith in a group of people who broke electoral law and cheated to get your vote. What have they done to earn your trust? Why do you believe them. They have delivered nothing.

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.

Hey! ⁦@OFOCBrexit⁩ ⁦@OFOCNI⁩ ⁦@Femi_Sorry
Why are so many of the NI constituencies in the bottom half of this #RevokeA50 Petition? See analysis.

Pengelly’s def losing but can you use your ingenuity to whop this one?…
2/ Petition link is here.

But maybe you can put your heads together to maximise signatures. We need to get this over 6 million today (Tuesday). Maybe @hayward_katy might have some ideas on how to connect and get the signatures in…
3/. It’s looking a bit pale @OFOCNI

Given we have been on a bit of a roll can you capitalise on it please? Catch up with the West coast of Scotland!!

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…
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 “grass 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.

IMPORTANT NEWS. There is a hearing tomorrow. The plaintiffs make the case that Teresa May's notification to withdraw from the EU was manifestly invalid. Moreover, they allege that she is guilty of Misconduct in Public Office.
#RevokeA50 #Brexit @euromovescot
"1) The Supreme Court ruled that the advisory EU Referendum could not make the decision to leave the European Union. That decision would need an Act of Parliament."

"2) The Notice of Withdrawal Bill was then presented in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling. However, it failed to include the one thing the Supreme Court said it needed – a withdrawal decision.

1) Ultimately passing May's #Brexit deal but with the requirement of a referendum on that deal or Remain may be the only way forward
Hard Brexiters can coalesce around May's deal, soft brexiters & Remainers around Remain and the public then decides
2) Hard brexiters need to realise they will never get majority public support for anything "harder" than May's deal

And with respect Norway + champions need to recognise they are splitting the Remain vote for something very few voted for
3) if I was King I'd say #RevokeA50, but our MPs are too cowardly for that, so we need to look for other options.

I personally think May's deal is terrible, but it's also what Brexit looks like

1) #Brexit Facts that shouldn't need stating
It's ridiculous that this has to be repeated, and even more ridiculous that our Media seem genuinely incapable of stating these facts, but the brexit paradox is very, very simple to articulate in 5 or so statements - thread
a) If you want to have different trade positions (tariffs, regulations, quotas, whatever) either side of a border - *you have to have a border*
The backstop is needed because the reality is there is no answer to "global Britain & new trade deals" and the Irish border
b) There will *never* be a majority of support for any #Brexit deal, not even among leavers - hard Brexit, Soft Brexit and May's half way fudge are all fundamentally opposed to each other & the Leave vote is split amongst them. No Brexit proposition can ever be popular

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.


#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.

I went to my GP & realised that there is an obvious divide between the British people... and...

... it has sod all to do with Brexit.

I'm going to tell you this story below:


#RevokeA50 #TIG
After checking in on the system I walked into the full waiting room following the couple in front of me 10 feet behind.

The couple went to sit where there were 4 spare seats in a row. A 'lady' saw them walking to the seats. She clearly didn't want them there to sit there.

The lady quickly tossed a magazine she had 2 seats along from her in an attempt to stop them sitting next to her. It worked.

I was disgusted & preceded to go to the last 2 seats, 1 with the magazine still on it next to the hurt looking lady who had just sat down.

The dept for exiting EU (DExEU) estimate that an #nodeal Brexit will cost the UK £158bn per year. That’s £3bn per WEEK. Dwarfs the “£350m per week” we were supposed to save.

Good work, lads. Thanks a bunch.

But never mind the cost, you say. Think of the benefits!

🥳 2,800,000 jobs lost!

🤪Abandoning our controls on food safety!

🤩Getting worse deals with Japan and the USA due to our weakened bargaining power! Hooray!
🥰 And we are projected to lose another £13bn per year on "the administrative burden on businesses from customs declarations alone".

Let that one sink in for a moment. Same as the net amount we spend on EU contributions. On administration ALONE.

About 6 years ago I was diagosed with rare genetic blood #cancer called polycythemia. Since then it’s progressed & become post-polycythemia vera myelofibrosis. 36 months ago I was also diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

I have fought every single day to stay alive. I’m alive bcos we belong to #Euratom European atomic energy community - it also deals with medical radiation treatments.

For more on Euratom see here:…

I also rely on the British participation in the ERN’s. These are European Reference Networks which allow collaboration across EU member states and they do essential work on #rarediseases making my, & many other ppl’s, treatment possible.

1. Neither I nor #Remain millions R Extremists but #Brexit's marginalised the Centre to the point we've become extreme
Extremely Angry
Extremely Politicised
Extremely Determined

Govt/Opposition/#Brexiters/#Lexiters thought we'd just Suck It Up, Get Over It, Move On.

2. We no longer see Tories or Labour, PM or Corbyn as the only alternative to each other. That's a false conceit you want us to swallow. Tactical voting & social media played out in GE2017. #Brexit is toxic & will continue to be if U don't #RevokeA50. A plague on both your houses
3. This is an Existential & Generational Crisis sucking the life & soul out of our Country..there is No Good..No Viable #Brexit nor #Lexit..both = #BrexitShambles
Both Remove Rights w/o Consent & leave us Worse Off.
There is NO COMPROMISE between IN or OUT beyond the one we have.

A short thread on things I am NEVER going to subscribe to as a #remain campaigner. & why
#peoplesvote #FBPE #Stopbrexit #RevokeA50
7/10 - no - not this one - I give the EU 10/10 - we have been lied to for years about what the EU does for us, from Freedom of Movement (which is excellent for us) to money for deprived areas.

"Remain and reform" - not this message either. "This is a brilliant house to buy - just needs the back wall rebuilding". Wrong message. Untrue message. The EU is constantly reforming & evolving, the so-called democracy that isn't doing so is the UK parliament 2/n

Theresa May's machiavelic plans have to stop.

If she really believes her negotiations are that Strong and Stable, she should stop this embarrassing political circus and openly go for her No-Deal #Brexit plan, instead of sneakily engineering it.

We know that's your plan. 1/10
When she decided to put forward her support to #BradyAmendment, she knew it would be rejected by the EU negotiators.
It was even said yesterday before she decided to support it.
But it is a sneaky way to put forward a No-Deal #Brexit and later putting the blame on the EU. 2/10
The #Backstop was negotiated BY the UK to comply with UK's red lines:
✔ No hard border (#GoodFridayAgreement)
❌ No customs unions
❌ No single market
❌ No freedom of movement
The EU wanted a soft #Brexit. So no Backstop. 3/10

1. #Brexit sec: EU may not agree to #ExtendA50

ME: to prevent this #BrexitShambles protect Rights & stop the haemorrhage of wealth & jobs we need to #RevokeA50 #StopBrexit & #Remain in Control in the EU with our current Best Possible Deal. #FBPE…
2. And B4 you spout the usual #Brexit BS. It was not the largest vote in History if you consider the proportion of the Electorate.
Either way the opinion of 51.8% Voting still =
37% Voters
26.5% of the Ppl
Compound that with
Lost Mandates
3. #Brexit is a Far Right Tory CON the tragedy is that too many Labour MPs are making themselves COMPLICIT.
Any version of #BrexitShambles
#Lexit doesn't exist..
The ECJ protects US from THEM

There is something terribly wrong with a country that’s preparing for shortages in peacetime thanks to something it’s government, Brexiteers and lexiters between them are railroading it into.
All on the basis of a dodgy referendum result based on promises we now know can’t be kept
We know #VoteLeaveBrokeTheLaw yet government have done nothing to pause and examine what that means for the validity of the tiny margin on which we are now turning away from the largest trading bloc in the world…

1) Happy new year all
Important to remember as we go past the 90 days mark till March 29 and Brexit day that despite all the smoke & mirrors, noise & misinformation from both Labour Leadership & the Hard Brexiters there's only 3 options on the table:
2) those 3 #Brexit options are:
1) No deal - crash out & a mad scramble to get ourselves together
2) Theresa May's deal - rule taker not rule maker,horrendous fudge that tried to please everyone & ended up pleasing no-one
3) Remain - stay in the EU under exactly the same benefits
3) There are no other #Brexit options, no time to negotiate them & no interest from the EU27 in tweaking or changing the Brexit deal, anyone who says otherwise is simply lying - there is no "Better Brexit deal".

The only deal is Theresa May's #BrexitDeal.
So just #HowWillBrexitBenefitMe? (& the UK?)
What about Labour's 6 tests for the deal?

No 1. Does it ensure a strong and collaborative future relationship with the EU?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE
#RevokeA50 #PeoplesVote
What about Labour's 6 tests for the Brexit deal?
No. 2. Does it deliver the “exact same benefits” as we currently have as members of the Single Market and Customs Union?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE
What about Labour's 6 tests for the Brexit deal?
No. 3. Does it ensure the fair management of migration in the interests of the economy and communities?
No. 4. Does it defend rights and protections and prevent a race to the bottom?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE

1) if you believe that #Brexit will be damaging, you *cannot* argue that #PeoplesVote or #RevokeA50 will be "damaging"

These figures don't tell the whole story, it's a lot worse
Perhaps half of the 46% hate "no deal"
& half hate May's deal

They can't all be happy after Brexit
2) at best even today either Brexit on offer will only please 30% of the country, the rest will feel let down or betrayed by politicians.

And when #Brexit actually bites those against it will easily top 65%

3) Its simply not democratic to push something few will like and most will hate, especially when people have been lied to concerning "cost free/jobs first #Brexit"

Meanwhile charlatans like Mogg & Corbyn will play the line - ahh, but *our* Brexit would have been better

1) The crux of why Labour is hamstrung on #Brexit
It *is* an outrage that May is saying "take my deal or take chaos", it's blackmail

But the only alternatives are a #PeoplesVote or #RevokeA50

If Labour won't call for either they are just shouting ineffectively into the wind
2) Gardiner can say on #politicslive "this is unacceptable, we must be given a meaningful vote"

But when asked for Labour's alternative he talks about a new equal partner CU which is illegal under EU law, and so the highly justifiable attack on May splutters to a halt
3) the fact is, when Corbyn attacks May's ridiculous deal, she can respond with "well, where's your alternative?"

When May says "it's my deal or no deal" Labour can bluster but offer no credible 3rd option

So Labour cannot effectively oppose, at all

1) long but absolutely vital speech on #Brexit by Sir Ivan Rogers

Something for everyone, especially the charlatans in the ERG & Labour's front bench…
2) for the ERG, @DavidDavisMP and others this, the central lunacy in saying WTO is fine whilst also arguing that we need to leave the EU to strike up new trade deals

It's bonkers - if WTO is OK, why do we need to leave so we can negotiate new trade deals to avoid WTO?
@DavidDavisMP 3) for @Keir_Starmer, @jeremycorbyn, @AngelaRayner and others, it's just a straight out lie to say Labour could get a better trade deal than the one EU27 have, whether it's in 3 months or 3 years so a General election is utterly pointless
