Soon we'll be at the point where the disaster that is brexit runs out of can kicking and we finally face a choice.

No Deal.

Or postponing and ultimately defeating the whole stupid concept.

Let's look at how we got here.

Thanks to @ByDonkeys for the inspiration
The Brexiters biggest problem has been a lack of understanding between them of what brexit is. Hence the silly use of "the brexit people voted for" as a phrase to cover up "we've no bloody idea what people voted for"
In any half decent democracy brexit would never have been unleashed without a plan being created.

But not only do we STILL not have that, Brexiters havent grasped even the basic details like how to import food.

Dear leave voters,

You can’t honestly say you voted for a no deal Brexit in 2016. No one did. It simply wasn’t on the table three years ago.

We were promised a deal in 2016, and that is what leave voters voted for.
Not one leave campaigner spoke in favour of no deal during the referendum campaign. No one. Not UKIP, Farage, Johnson, Rees-Mogg, Gove etc. Even Vote Leave was clear that we’d leave with a deal.
Be honest. All talk of a no deal Brexit emerged after Maybot’s terrible deal was published, over two years after we voted. At least something unites us: we agree her deal is awful. It’s far inferior to our current terms, not least because we’d take rules without making 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

So. This happened today. My lovely gorgeous son went to get medication he needed today from the pharmacist. It’s a relatively new regime so he’s been talking to the doctor about dosages etc. The pharmacist told him they were running low on most things because of #Brexit, and 1/
They wouldn’t have any of his medication till at earliest Monday. Which means my son will have to take less over the weekend to make it last. He’s away from home and pretty scared. There’s nothing I can do. The pharmacist told him all supply chains are struggling and 2/
Stockpiling has begun. Major pharmaceutical companies aren’t releasing drugs. And there are shortages everywhere. People are also starting to stockpile individually. The pharmacist said he hasn’t seen anything like it in 30 years. He said major chains are keeping it quiet 3/

Waiting for the start of the Brexit What's The Deal event at Bracknell Open Learning Centre organised by Berkshire for Europe.
We'll be live tweeting the event, so watch this space.
If you are at the event, use the hashtag #WhatsTheDealBracknell on social media.
It promises to be an interesting evening, particularly with the news this afternoon that Railways Minister @JoJohnsonUK has resigned from the government and spoken out in favour of a #PeoplesVote on Brexit rather than the choice of no deal or a bad deal.
Our speakers this evening are:
Bracknell MP @DrPhillipLeeMP who was one of the early MPs to resign their ministerial post over Brexit (for the right reasons)

Just been called a fanatic by a #Corbynista #Lexiter for daring to suggest Labour need to back a #PeoplesVote for a #FinalSay with a #Remain option to thwart the Far Right #Brexit...2 out of the 3 likes he got were from the Far Right.
What have we become?!

1. Ok bit of a revelation last night after rereading the posts against #FBPE .
Why do parts of the left and right hate us so much.
I think it's become really clear to me is the attacks don't make sense.
@Ferretgrove
#StopBrexitSaveBritain
#PeoplesVote
2. #FBPE Both sides should actually be trying to win over the centre. Instead we are criticised for concerns about both the pillars of the political system, the system itself where proven electoral fraud is ignored by both.
Why does @OwenJones84
Work with @Jacob_Rees_Mogg
3.And both sides blame immigrants. Why did the two edges of our political universe target immigrants and #FBPE what possible connection do the targets have? Is it a love of foccacia or is it something much darker that the left and the right agree on.

Here follows a well crafted summary of the U.K. #Brexit position from the @guardian CIF section:
1. We are < 1% of global population (less without Scotland) To put things into perspective India produces more honours graduates than we produce kids.
2a. Without the economic muscle of the EU we do not have the means to get good trade agreements (Trade Agreements are staggeringly complex legal documents.
2b. Signing them is easy, getting a good one is the trick and that takes time, a team of knowledgeable and experienced negotiators and economic muscle, all which we don't have).

No Deal Brexit means there are no treaties in place between UK and the World. Everything will grind to a halt on 30th March 2019. We do not get access to WTO automatically. Everything needs to be renegotiated with guaranteed lesser terms than we have now with EU. 1/
Planes, Eurostar and ports will grind to a halt. No trade agreements and no freedom of movement, so chaos at customs and immigration. No EURATOM so no nuclear energy or medicine plus more. Medicines scarce. Food shortages. £ plunged further. Price rises. 2/
EU citizens here & Brit citizens in Europe will become illegal citizens unless they have already been granted settled status that they have to pay for. Think of the backlog at the Home Office and the high number of errors made there. All EU here and Brits there lose some rights.

Something is happening out there in #Brexit Britain [thread] 1/
Following all the ballyhoo from the #chequers cabinet & resultant white paper, something has changed. Finally the penny is beginning to drop. What is my evidence? Well of course its anecdotal but here are a few bits 2/
Watching #bbcqt last night from Brexity Dartford, there seemed to be a clear change of mood. There were the usual calls of "just leave" but the audience response was muted. @claireperrymp gave an admission - a 1st for Govt Minister of how difficult the process of leaving is. 3/

@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView You do know that the referendum was not intended as a binding instruction, yes? That the referendum was enabled by an act that explicitly laid out its advisory nature?
@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView Yes, Cameron said he'd enact it but that's all he did, say. Theresa May said she would not hold an election in 2017, but she did. Should the current government dissolve itself because of what she said? (Don't answer that)
@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView Do you know what's damaged our vote?

The ref may have been advisory but it was a legitimate democratic exercise, governed by electoral law.

The leave campaign broke all kinds of electoral laws.

If a GE was won after a corrupt campaign, for how long would the new govt last?

At @CityREDI's #BrexitRegionalImpact workshop to "discuss the likely impact of Brexit on the West Midlands economy & agree on the urgent actions that need to be taken in the crucial months ahead"

Will business take a stand for #PeoplesVote or roll over?

It's hard to see how Brexit can be seen as anything but a disaster for the West Midlands, but I will listen to everyone and report back.

What's really special about the CityREDI Brexit Impact studies is that they don't just cover the UK but also the rest of the EU.
BrexitImpact on the EU isn't as bad as on the UK but it's still bad. Hard to imagine maintaining good relations after this harm.

1.#A50Challenge disputes the govt's claims that a 'decision' to leave the EU has been made 'in accordance with [our] constitutional requirements'. The underlying assumptions of that decision haven't been tested in court. THREAD explaining why the ref result isn't a decision #FBPE
2. In 2011 the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act was legislated during the 1st Cameroon govt. It was unique as it was a 'madatory' referendum. The same administration legislated for the Referendum Act 2015 as an 'advisory' ref; 2011 bound parliament 2015 didn't.
3. The 1975 ref process was different. It was, what's termed as, a post-legislative ref. In other words, Parliament voted for EC membership, then legislated for the Referendum Act 1975. The assent of the people (67% to 33%) then made that result binding; theoretically.

Once Upon a time, long long ago when there was no Internet, we used to phone buildings rather than people, when global trade was confined to a limited number of basic goods and very few services /1
There were Trades Unions. These organisations grew up protecting the rights of workers and furthering socialism and progressive politics in a highly regulated world of trade and capital. /2
Then in the 60s 70s and 80s they increasingly became less effective and struggling with new technology in manufacturing and global capital markets until one day they were brutally put down by the Iron Lady. /3

1. When will those craven MPs, who fail to put natl interest 1st, wake up to the harsh reality; the #Brexit vote & process was subverted & flawed, the Will of the People unclear & misrepresented & that our country can only end up Poorer, Weaker with Fewer Rights & less Control.
2. There's no way any politician can justify proceeding with this #BrexitShambles w/o at least Retesting the current Will of the Ppl.
W/o offering a Binding #FinalSayForAll on the Autumn Deal + a #StopBrexitSaveBritain option, no #Brexit can be deemed legitimate. #FairVote #ABTV
3. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership are being equally disingenuous & like the Tories putting the ideology of the Far Left before the interests of their own ppl.
They can't be in power forever & future Tory Govts can do what they want outside the EU.

#Remain voted for:

A say in whether the EU enlarges or not.
A say in if the EU federalises or remains a union of independent states.
A say in if there is an EU army.
Being the financial capital through which the majority of € is traded while still keeping the £.

#BrexitReality
#EnlargedEurope

The UK has taken the lead in efforts for EU enlargement. It pushed for the inclusion of Eastern European states. It pushed for Turkey to get its shit together so that it could join (which it made very slow progress with, and has largely been undone by Erdogan)
After #Brexit, the UK will have no influence on EU enlargement. In fact, as setting the EU as a rival, every country that joins the EU will a) strengthen the EU, and b) unravels any trade deals that the UK will have made with that country, isolating it further.

1. All of this flagged up by #Remain before A50 passed by the CONS & Labour..I remember distinctly our warnings that if it went thru Control passed to the EU27. It goes to prove how much damage both parties are prepared to inflict on our country to impose their ideology on us all
2. This price to buy a Transition that merely allows our politicians to kick the real impact down the road so they can con ppl into thinking things will be fine after #Brexit. If we don't #StopBrexitSaveBritain we'll be out on 29/03/19 & it will be too late to avoid the cliff.
3. This is all about leaving the EU 29/03/19..once out we've lost our BEST POSSIBLE DEAL, it will be Pay & Obey No Say on many issues ad infinitum; we'll never get back in. At that point we lose Rights...we're already losing jobs to the EU as companies relocate at least in part.

1/ Yes there is more to it than GDP. Silver lining of #Brexit is it has woken up all of us Brits who are proEU. Before EURef we did not need to be active or engaged. Now we bloody well do because the future of our country is at stake. #FBPE #WATON #REMAIN #StopBrexitSaveBritain
2/ irony of #Brexit is that it has created a massive pro EU grassroots across the U.K. Millions of British people who are just if not more passionate, determined, committed & angry as any #Leaver or #Brexiter. #FBPE #WATON #StopBrexitSaveBritain #remainernow #FinalSay #StopBrexit
3/ Why are #Remainers so committed to stopping #Brexit? More reasons than you could give in a series of tweets. First & foremost we believe it is catastrophic to our country & we therefore have a duty to stop that damage to our country #fbpe #WATON #StopBrexit #REMAIN #FinalSay

Top work @jonnywoo34 keep speaking out, your courage will encourage overs!
I urge people to read this great thread from #remainernow Jon (for more see ⬆️). In it he explains his reasons for voting leave & what he has realised since.
