Exactly! This is the kind of thing that needs to happen throughout the UK now. Stalls are a good thing, the #PeoplesVoteMarch was amazing. But it’s not enough and neither is waiting till party conferences etc. Make no mistake: the next three months are absolutely critical 1/
And so no time can be wasted. So talk to local groups and get some things off the ground that are bigger and not the traditional stuff. If you haven’t been so involved, now is the time to become involved. My advice is to focus on one and one thing only: that #BrexitIsPersonal 2/
And if you’re wondering why I’m so happily lecturing everyone on doing stuff rather than do that stuff: watch this space ... #TanjasSecretSummerProject 3/3
Brexit, all that’s happened since June 2016, has no benefits. But after #PeoplesVoteMarch let me say that I consider it my privilege to have been able to meet so many amazing people because of Brexit. They are what keeps me going. All of you are. Together we can #StopBrexit 1/
So here’s a little walk down memory lane, as it were ... told through some events, activities ... and wonderful people. 2/
24 June 2016 ... it was a sad day. But still the message is unchanged ❤️ 3/
This isn't just a remainer thing BTW. If I was a leaver and I read that tweet I'd be PRETTY worried and pissed off TBH
These are our so-called "betters" who are in charge. They were told. They were told THREE YEARS ago that this could happen. The sheer arrogance as they dismissed this with a flick of the hand as one might a fly: "#ProjectFear", they sneered

Hote in the polls! You will have 15 minutes.
1. Treeza surveyed the party and gave a rousing speech: “We been tasked by Will O'thepeople to enforce the rite of B’rexit! And that is what we will do! We are here to ‘get on with the job’ ‘drive from the rear’ and ‘crush the saboteurs'.”
My English grandma is 97 years old. She's almost completely blind now but still lives alone. She was a nurse in the Blitz and her late husband, my grandpa, served in the war.
She thinks Brexit is a terrible idea.
Grandpa, whose family business built houses after the war, would've been appalled by the idiocy of Brexit and the infantile nationalism that drives it; he would've been furious at the utter cretins who're taking us down this road.
Grandma has 6 grandchildren – 2 of them half Italian and 1 half Austrian – and 10 great-grandchildren, 3 of whom live in France. Several of her grandchildren make a living operating in the Single Market and/or use Freedom of Movement for their work and way of life.
It's a PROCESS. Not an end product. You don't do it just the once. Remainers/leavers who insist we should respect the vote are either not aware of the threat democracy is currently under or they don't understand the concept of democracy.
"You don't get to keep voting until you get what you want". Well actually that IS kinda the point. You want your vote to count. And you want your values and policies to be realised.
Some of you know me from my phone-melting, slightly anarchic, light relief threads. Although they appear flippant, there is a very serious idea and a lot of work behind them. #BrexitIsPersonal 1/21
After a few months of spending all day, every day, taking abuse from leavers & feeling ground down by the negativity & repetition, I knew that I needed a break. I started to set up threads, had fun & felt better. I wondered, if others needed a break, too. #BrexitIsPersonal 2/21
At 1st it was chaotic, but it's grown into something far more organised. There's a group of regulars, who want to be tagged into every new thread. There is no tagging w/o permission, as we all got blocked by William Shatner in a tragic tagging accident. #BrexitIsPersonal 3/21
