I got sunburnt sitting on the bank of the Danube River sketching the Slovak boats entering the city.

Today we joined other groups from Berkshire & the rest of Britain (as well as some from further afield) for the #FinalSayForAll march.
It was brilliant - the weather was good, the atmosphere was amazing, the speeches at the end were memorable.
#StopBrexitMarch #PeoplesVoteMarch
Assembling at the start of the march.
A lot of time must have gone into making this pub sign placard.

#Remainers You arenโ€™t retweeting stuff. This means that you are keeping the information inside our circle. If it is ever to break out of the Remain bubble you must hit retweet, or accept that Twitter is a masturbatory tool rather than a campaigning tool. If you see what I mean.๐Ÿ˜ˆ
Iโ€™m honestly not finger wagging, but Iโ€™ve seen some amazing, thought provoking tweets this morning and it is great campaigning material. Iโ€™m sad if we are the only ones who see it.
Iโ€™m glad this has provoked discussion. Maybe that is one of the most valuable things we can do. #BollocksToBrexit

Get this, #BrexitBritain. Any withdrawal agreement means compromise; you will pay, you will give ground. You are humiliated before the world, because #Brexit is an admission you canโ€™t handle real life, that scuttling back to the safety of the dull 1950s is all you can handle.
If I sound bitter and angry itโ€™s because I am. Because Iโ€™m one of those being screwed over. One of those whose life was defined by being European, by using the freedom that was my right. Five million of us whose lives have been turned upside down. #The5Million
#Brexiters are afraid that we donโ€™t respect their โ€˜democratic voteโ€™. Damned right we donโ€™t. The referendum was never democratic. How could it be? The majority of those directly affected by the result DIDNโ€™T EVEN GET A VOTE. Think about that. Democracy? No. The tyranny of the mob.

I live in France, but have children & grandchildren in the UK. This last week or so Iโ€™ve experience waves of terror sweep over me, more than once at the prospect of a disorderly, crash-out #Brexit. Not because of scare stories... 1
... or project fear, but because Brits donโ€™t get how vulnerable you are to disruption of goods and supplies from the rest of the world. No one wishes the UK Iโ€™ll, but we live in a rules-based world, where trade is regulated by treaties and agreements. Choose to.../2
disregard those and there will be disruption to essential supplies. From that point on the story is a familiar one. It involves disorder, looting, gangs, threats, burglary, violence and fear. So forgive me if I have no time for what 52% voted for in a rigged, dishonest.../3

New #hustingsthread.

Having looked at the opening remarks I have picked out highlights and links to some of the questions covered in our excellent #hustings last Saturday. #EUelections2019 #PeoplesVote
โ€œWhat Areas of Policy are better coordinated at EU level rather than National Level?โ€

Julie Ward of @uklabour views areas of refugee policy and sharing responsibility for them and also online safety and security, holding the platforms to account as crucial work for the EU.
Link to answers from all candidates to this question.

Question 1 What areas of of Policy are better coordinated at EU level rather than national leve?

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 donโ€™t feel is being engaged with by any of the Remain parties. You see, every Brexiteer is a hero.
2/ Itโ€™s a wonderful feeling โ€“ 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 โ€œProject Fearโ€ is a case in point; clearly Remainers were cowards.
3/ In fact, it doesnโ€™t matter if every prediction comes true to them โ€“ 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.

1/ war paint on & we're ready to #EURockNRoll ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‘Š

Protesting outside Parliament today over the #MeaninglessVote

Your deal is dead @theresa_may! Plan B is Plan A - and it's not good enough for #Britain!

It's time for the people to demand a #FinalSay on this mess
2/ there appears to be massive @UKIP and @LeaveMnsLeave #WTO rules protest and march occurring.

Not enough Remainers on the ground to counter & the atmosphere is very toxic.

I was immediately called every name under the sun and told I am a disgrace. ๐Ÿ™„
3/ I had to take a photo of this dude.... I'll give it to him - his costume is great! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ #LeaveMeansLeave

Arrived at #Wetherspoons in MCR. Tim Martin arrives 10 mins late & tells us "he is going to give us a talk". I thought this was supposed to be a #Brexit debate? ๐Ÿค” "Metropolitan elites are pushing for a deal we don't need & if we crash out on #NoDeal we will avoid paying ยฃ39bn"
I just had to point out to Tim that it is our own government who hasn't been implementing EU laws on controlling migration and hasn't properly documented #EUcitizens living in the UK, as they do in other EU countries.
He just admitted he needs to go back and "check his books." ๐Ÿ™„
This woman quite rightly pointing out that if we don't pay the ยฃ39bn financial obligation... then who else is going to pay @Nigel_Farage's pension? ๐Ÿค” Tim says his research hasn't led him to any answers.

1/ So despite the check-in staff at MCR airport being very entertained by the #BollockstoBrexit stickers on my passport, my case got pulled out at security and I was ordered to remove them because they are "offensive"๐Ÿค” (Personally I think #Brexitbis more offensive than bollocks)
2/ I objected pointing out that "bollocks" had been determined not to be offensive in a court of law. The member of staff didn't believe, so I told her to look up the Sex Pistols album "never mind the Bollocks". She told me she "wasn't a sex pistols fan"๐Ÿ™„ completely irrelevant.
3/ I told her there was no legal requirement to remove the stickers and she was impeding on my freedom of speech. She threatened to call airport police to deal with the situation & accused me of wasting security staff time. I told her she was the one making unnecessary demands.
