Never a good word
But didn't it mean at least considered?

Now look, or don't
Like a mirror in a sewer.
Don't look.

Go in the reverse direction to find anything preferable to their half-digested political regurgitate.

Created on the fly.
For vanity.
A hideous London attack.
Two wonderful brilliant students dead.

A time to reflect.

But no.
⏺ Play instead kneejerk politics with the death of students.

Instead of calm considered judicial review of a process they broke.

Did they think we wouldn't notice?
⏺Preparing to sell off the NHS to get their desperately yearned for US trade deal.
And why? We already have 30+ trade deals with the US.

The only thing we don't have is drug injected meat.

Instead of calm, considered investment in the sort of health care most Americans want.

It's time to #TakeBackControl

BUT YOU HAVE TO FUCKING #REGISTER2VOTE OKAY?!

gov.uk/register-to-vo…
And please take some time to check which party has the best chance to oust the fascists in your constituency. #TacticalVoting is the ONLY way
Make no mistake, after killing off more than 120k vulnerable people, alienating our allies, cheating, lying and breaking the law, our fragile democracy is next. We CANNOT let Putin's lapdogs win a majority

**On "respecting" the referendum**

I think “respect” is the wrong word because it suggests to do the opposite is to be disrespectful. A better word is “uphold” or “implement”.
It’s perfectly possible to respect a vote but disagree with it and refuse to implement when you have better information.

We are in the mindset of sunk cost fallacies and our positions on both sides are becoming entrenched.
I would MPs on both sides to reconsider whether the 2016 vote was truly democratic. There’s little merit to be had in upholding/implementing something that comes from an undemocratic mandate.

Corbyn has called on other parties to back him in leading a caretaker govt.

"The political obstacles to Corbyn’s proposal are considerable"
Many MPs who might support the idea in theory would not want to install him in No.10 even as a caretaker PM.

Forming a caretaker government is more complicated than just choosing a PM

If opposition parties can agree on a PM, what would need to be agreed before a caretaker government could operate?

A government with ministers
The purpose
Priorities
Policies

Just shows how utter shallow, meaningless & hate filled the Leave campaigns anti Germany rhetoric is

"On September 22, 1984, François Mitterrand & Helmut Kohl sealed the Franco-German reconciliation with a handshake that entered history"

#GetBrexitGone

bfmtv.com/international/…
On September 22, 1984, French President François Mitterrand and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl , gathered in Verdun to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the First World War, exchange a long handshake. An unexpected gesture and unimaginable at the time, while a few months earlier
Germany had not been invited to celebrate the forty years of landing in Normandy.

Want to #getbrexitdone? Another lie. We want to #getbrexitgone, never see it again.

But imagine Boris really does want to get it out of the way. Why then is he choosing the #Brexit path guaranteed to make Brexit go on for decades? Short Thread #FBPE⬇️ with links to back it up
In 2016 Brexit was not "anything Tories want". If votes worked that way, they'd enable divine rule. No leaver wants more Government. We've opposed that corruption since Magna Carta, let's not stop now
The result - #NOTBrexitdone - Years of Legal Opposition
In 2016 we voted for frictionless trade.
No Deal throws 70 trade deals, 50 trade arrangements and 750 contracts under the Boris Bus. That's 80% of GLOBAL trade, not just EU

The result - #NOTBrexitdone. Years of Trade Chaos, endless deals, for no reason
