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.

BIG MISTAKE
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.

Dear friends, I must draw your attention to a trend here. It is as if all #brexiters have been told to lie blatantly. Raab' claims that being in a weaker position strengthens our bargaining power is pure #altright cognitive dissonance. It is a deliberate confusion tactic 1/
This is one of the hallmarks of the Leave Campaign and other campaigns where the #altright hate machine has been involved. It is using lying as a weapon designed to further obscure the truth and make people give up on trying... silence opposition based on truth /2
It is also a key part of stirring up hate. It is societal antagonism/terrorism. It is designed to enrage and encourage hate, anger and violence. It is designed to, for example, encourage verbal attacks against #leavers to use as proof of hate against them... 3/

1/3 Nearly 1000 days since #EUref & I’ve still not heard of ONE single convincing #Brexit benefit from any supporter, either those known to me or via press/online.

That’s been plenty of time to do my own independent research & wherever I’ve looked, we can ONLY be worse off.
2/3 I might once have considered idea of #EU imploding & our early exit being beneficial.

But just as Brexit is tearing us apart, it has enhanced European unity so that’s not happening.

What’s left to #Brexiters are lies, electoral fraud, greed, racism & stubborn stupidity.
3/3 After years of arguing, I’ve made it a New Year vow to decline debate with still committed #Leavers as I believe they must be influenced by one or all of the above & are thus past help.

Best way to #StopBrexit2019 is to focus on the apathetic, the unsure & soft leavers.

A short list re why a #PeoplesVote #FinalSay is not outrages or unreasonable.

We know more and we deserve to give an informed decision to our politicians based on facts rather than hot air.

No one wants no deal #brexit and no one likes May’s #brexit deal.
Many #Brexiters like to deny it but immigration was a clear concern. The UK has always had control but the Gov never really bothered to implement any control Directive 2004/38
Some were for sovereignty but the media and #Brexiters tried to make it black and white. The UK is sovereign para 67 Miller

In her 18 Xmas speech, HM QE2 avoided Brexit entirely (she did mention Commonwealth), in the "BBC balance" interpretation of Royal obligation to be politically neutral. We can speculate on meaning and intent. But it got me thinking about requirements for reconciliation. Thread.
Leavers would need due consideration and political action on the discontents that drove their vote. E.g. redistribution, investment in communities whose public services have been eroded. Creating + opportunities: vocational training, education. Community-building and integration.
Parties can help by recruiting talent from outside the Public School - Oxford PPE - Spad conveyor belt. Westminster can help by letting serious £ move to regions. A decade of austerity has also left a sense that working people absorbed the consequences of moral hazard in City.

1. Don't pin the blame for this debased #Brexit on #Remain #Remainers #RemainerNow
We tried to tell you
WE WERE IGNORED
2. We said a Ref was not a good idea
WE WERE IGNORED
3. We warned Safeguards were needed
WE WERE IGNORED

THREAD on the Subject of #Brexit & Respect...with a hint of Betrayal.

#Remain #Remainers, #RemainerNow Pls RT or feel free to Use this whenever you are told to Respect the Non-Binding Referendum & by all means add some more.
1. #Brexiters & #Lexiters have 2 justications, apart from 'we won you lost', for the #BrexitShambles.
Namely that we must RESPECT the #Brexit Ref result & that to seek to overturn it would BETRAY the Will of the 'British People'. (nb they often omit the N. Irish)
2. Respect or Lack of Respect & Betrayal at the heart of #Brexit...so...why should we Respect the EURef 2016 & Who or What is being Betrayed?

I know of no other example, other than #Brexit, of someone leaving a club & then demanding that the club changes its rules for existing members to provide free benefits to the leaving member. Worse still, to then claim that the club is bullying them by saying 'no'. #PeoplesVote
.@theresa_may, @BorisJohnson , @michaelgove , @Nigel_Farage, @LiamFox, @DominicRaab. How about getting the best deal/no deal possible & then putting it to the people to accept the it or remain in the EU? If it's as promised in 2016 we'll leave. Everyone's a winner. #PeoplesVote
So now we have heard from @theresa_may demanding that the EU (the club WE have chosen to leave), having said no to our proposals, must explain why & provide counter proposals which respect the UK's position. No, they're not showing disrespect. They simply don't like our proposal.

1/12 I studied law which included UK constitutional and EU law. I had a fair understanding of the implications of #Brexit. 2 years on and becoming a volunteer legal writer for @infacts I have learned SO much more thanks to #Brexit
2/12 It’s been a lot of fun going back to the laws and refreshing my memory as well as building on that.
3/12 It is very important to note that the subject of the UK and EU is very complex and it’s reaches are vast. There were areas that we all were not aware of (#Brexiters and #Remainers) until #brexit became a reality.

No. This is actually happening. This "scaremongering"/"project fear" narrative has to stop now. There is demonstrable proof that this and other similar things are happening on the ground (recently including CAF). Real lives impacted.

This is #Brexit reality.
It's high time for #Brexiters to grow up and understand that just because the reality of what is happening does not fit their narrative, does not mean that it is not real.

It's time to grow up and own your mistakes.

You created this. Deal with it like we have to.

#StopBrexit
What Bob here fails to comprehend is that the residence requirements for EU citizens and non-EU citizens are very different. So you could easily comply with the EU ones but not the non-EU ones.

That is very much the point.

As we are back in campaigning mode with #Leave on the back foot, what is the most important thing we have learned since #EURef2016 that means we should #StopBrexit?
- That #Brexit will leave us worse off in every scenario?
- That the Referendum was advisory, not an ‘instruction’ to the Government?

1/4 If anyone is still listening, here’s an ABC of WTO-only #Brexit as it applies to my business, driving & #trucking.

Bryce Baschuk (@bbaschuk) writes for Bloomberg on WTO.

Dmitry Grozoubinski (@DmitryOpines) has actually been a #WTO negotiator.
2/4 Dmitry lists (by his own admission, in no particular order) planes not flying, ill prepared customs authorities, removal of competent authorities & loss of financial services & then says this about #trucking..
3/4 Pauline Bastidon (@BastidonPauline Head of European Policy at the Freight Trade Association) then adds the following..

I want to address this tweet and the comments that followed. It seems that some of you did not get the point.

#NHS #StopBrexit #FBPE #PeoplesVote
The point is this:

The UK has access to technetium-99m because it's a member of an international treaty facilitating its trade & movement. Without it, treatment & detection of certain cancers is much harder, waiting lists will grow and people will die.

The further point is this:

There are 9.5 months to go until the UK drops out of EURATOM. 9.5 months is not enough to negotiate a brand new treaty or to join an existing one on another continent.

1. Seen quite a bit of anti #FBPE nonsense...mainly from the further left..we've been called a cult by Corbynistas...I'd remind them, cultists worship deities PEOPLE or objects; opposing a #Brexit which is leaving us all Poorer, Weaker with Less Control & Fewer Rights is neither.
2. Using #FBPE doesn't make us anti Corbyn or Labour it makes us anti #Brexit & sadly that means we are in opposition to those who are forcing a flawed #BrexitShambles upon the Ppl & denying the Ppl a #FinalSay a #PeoplesVote to Confirm the Will of the Ppl to leave or to #Remain.
3. Fighting to give the Ppl a #FinalSay nor indeed giving the Ppl a #PeoplesVote doesn't thwart #Brexit nor disrespect anyone..it merely allows everyone to Confirm if they still want it or now to #StopBrexit & #Remain...it's called DEMOCRACY as it allows ppl to change their minds

1/ Liz it is not that you reported on Nigel & Jacob throwing some fish into the Thames. It’s that you did not also report on many many many more people marching against #Brext. The logic given for. It doing so does not add up.
2/ it is also that you did not raise critical & basic questions in regard to said stunt throwing of fish into the Thames. It is the total Government pro #Brexit. Has exhibited by @BBCNews in recent years.
3/ It is the sheer number of appearances by #Brexiters such as #farage versus #Remainers. It is the ambush mounted on @carolecadwalla by @AndrewMarr9 & #Brexstremjst guest

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson

1) strong message here for remaining #Brexit supporters

You were lied to, you are led by chancers, get a grip
amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
2) Yes, ok, Remain ran a terrible campaign & Cameron was an arrogant fool.
Yes #Brexit sounded easy & even exciting
But, enough's enough
3) whatever happened in the campaigns, this is the reality.
There is no £350 M, #Brexit will cost far more than our membership

1/ We need to talk about @petenorth303.
2/ Pete is a puzzle. A brexiter who, to his credit, has been facing harsh brexit facts and publicising them. E.g.
3/ People, normal people, have been asking, horrified, “so why aren’t you against it”?
