① of ⑧ On my Facebook page, under my video about the case for #Breturn, ardent #Brexiter Bob Pattenden commented: ‘You can’t accept a Democratic vote you lost get over it and move on, but you always have the democratic choice to move to a EU country but my guess is you won’t’ Image
② of ⑧ I replied: My Facebook page only supports strictly democratic means to achieve change. In a #democracy, if you lose, you don't have to give up. You can hope and campaign to win next time. That's precisely what #Brexiters did after they lost.
③ of ⑧ So, please, don't bring double standards to my Facebook page. If #Eurosceptics could campaign for a new vote after they lost, then so can #Remainers/ #Rejoiners too. If that was not the case, we would no longer have a democracy.

25m tonnes worth of imports come into the Port of Liverpool every year, so that's roughly 2,400 massive 40ft container-carrying lorries a day.

/1
Since we're leaving the EU's Customs Union, after Jan 1st they will ALL will need parking space in a secure "bonded facility" for inspection by customs officials (that don't yet exist). 100 lorries an hour. One every 36 seconds. 24 hours a day.

/2
The government has just granted itself permission to build this massive concrete facility, surrounded by razor wire, *anywhere* in Liverpool. Reverse alarms 24/7. Flood lights on all night. Lorries tearing up our already potholed streets.

Did you miss the latest #Brexit Trade hypocrisy while everyone was pointing at Russia?

TLDR is

1. Brexit is giving us even less control of trade deals than under the EU

2. All our rollover deals are dead in the water because of our stupid No Deal No Leverage stance

Hansard Quotes, unless stated.

A Tory finally points out what we've been saying for 2 years.

The No Deal no Leverage nonsense has undermined our negotiation position.
Deals are not being rolled over and
We're screwed with no options

Hardest deal in history?
👩‍🔧😢3/8
#Brexit promise: Give Parliament control over trade deals. You guessed it - Tory Brexit gives Parliament EVEN LESS control than we had in the EU!

The Brexit lie was the EU didn't let us review trade deals.

UNTRUE.

UK Gov chose not to have Parliament review them.

As support for #Brexit drains away, the 52% support withered to just 32% and falling, the country's finances short by £130 billion (before #COVID19), and with a #NorthKoreaBrexit looming that bears no relation to what #VoteLeave sold...

Got a feeling #RejoinEU is going to trend.
Don't get me wrong. We have massive domestic problems to address first, and frankly, we won't win #FPTP without a historic alliance, and selling that is hard. (Do help though!).

But imagine being a #Brexiter today. Their win looks more and more like when a country loses a war.
On the day that the #VoteLeave regime set the clock ticking to the most damaging form of Brexit in January, resolve to lay the foundation for a better future:

1. Yes @UKLabour it is nearly beyond time..back your members...back your voters...back the Maj of the Ppl & actively Oppose not Appease.
Your 1st priority is to the Country. #Brexit in any form harms it.
@Labour4EU know it...Unions know it..Momentum too. theguardian.com/business/2018/…
2. Don't let the Govt stall or the @EU_Commission give them more time. Any #Brexit will become a Tory one..it hands the UK to the Far Right & ERG.
The Ref validity is long gone...past its Use By date.
Lies, Illegalities & Rights to be Removed w/o CONSENT.

#PeoplesVote #FinalSay
3. PS Extensions, Renegotiations, Re-entry, Transitions & a Blind #Brexit are Tory #Brexiter & Labour #Lexiter #RedKipper CONS...
All lead to a Tory #BrexitShambles which Removes Rights & Impoverishes the UK...

#PeoplesVote for a #FinalSay with a #Remain #Reform option

Are you a #Brexiter who voted in good faith for #Brexit, hoping for a better life for you and your family, and don't see why so many people now want a #PeoplesVote? Let's revisit the things #VoteLeaveBrokeTheLaw and @LeaveEUOfficial told you back then. 1/n
Then: "There will be no downside to Brexit - only a considerable upside" (David Davis).

Now, The "benefits" of brexit may take "up to 50 years to appear" (Jacob Rees Mogg), or "never" (Nigel Farage).

Hate austerity? Brexit = constant austerity.

Then: "Turkey is joining the EU" (Psst If you don't vote for Brexit, Turks, Syrians and Iraqis will overwhelm our country)"

Now: @michaelgove admits they lied to you about it, and "regrets" this. theguardian.com/politics/2018/…

1) Corbyn's Authoritarian Labour
Corbyn has quickly fired multiple frontbenchers in the name of collective responsibility, whenever they said "leaving the SM may not be such a great idea"
This despite him being one of the greatest rebels in the history of Labour
So,... Gardiner..
2) just before Gardiner dismissed the GFA as an outdated relic which was being overplayed, Owen Smith was fired for suggesting a #FinalSay on #Brexit would be a good idea.
Owen Smith was open about his comments.
Barry Gardiner was not.
3) firstly, he directed critics to his formal speech, in an attempt to direct people away from his comments following the speech, in which he twice refers to the GFA as an outdated relic ("shibboleth") which was being overplayed.

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
