You know what. I need to clarify this tweet.

It's too late to stop us crashing out without a deal - but we'll need more of this to save what's left of the country
Because it's not about leave or remain anymore. It's about the siphoning of wealth via Tory shell companies
It's about the unelected extremist bureaucrat in number 10 - who is most likely a Russian asset

So, some of those following me may wonder why I’m so concerned about British politics and in particular the way the UK govt is handling #COVID19

I’ve been a frequent visitor in the UK for 13–14 years and in those years I’ve forged many a strong friendship ❤️

Naturally I’m greatly concerned about the wellbeing of my UK friends during this #COVID19 pandemic.

These are people who have been there for me when I’ve been through some rough patches, they’re like family to me.

Additionally my son met a lovely English lass online a few years back, and even though they’ve had to face a few road bumps, they are very much in love. And hope to build a future together.

Over the years she’s become very dear to me.

March-4: .@LukePollard proposed a very sensible motion in response to #UKFloods, calling for an independent review into:
-Govt response
-Flood prevention/defence funding
-Insurance issues
-Lessons learned

Who could possibly vote against that?

You'd be surprised...

Dear constituents of #Telford, esp. #Ironbridge,

Your MP #LucyAllan voted against Mr Pollard's motion.

Instead she backed the watered-down version of the motion, committing to nothing very much.

If you want more than warm words, write to her.

So going to be on the way home for a while, so a few thoughts now we have officially left the E.U. (but brexit is far from done) on what the remain movement must do now.

It’s obviously a very sad day, brexit has happened, we have lost our voice on the international stage and so many of us fear for the harm that will be caused to our country & the people in it, but there is a lot to fight for and things that we can be positive about.

Firstly, we must keep our networks and activism alive. Whilst some were so many of us were not active before 2016 and the U.K. now has the biggest pro European movement in Europe. It’s vital that these non partisan networks are maintained. It’s vital we remember that what.. 3/

Little video message for @remainernow followers & all those who’ve been involved in the grassroots anti-brexit movement.
Tomorrow will be a very sad day but you fought for what you believed in, so thank you. And brexit is happening but there is still a fight for UK’s future. 1/8
In video I say how vital it is we #HoldThemToAccount, one way is just not letting this govt get away with pretend the lie they have got brexit done! So keep sharing things with those less involved on issues, such as videos like this that flag complexities & trade offs.. 2/8
Also there are so many articles out there that will show the complexities and the govt lack of preparedness and keep flagging things like this to make it clear it’s govt decisions to blame for any ramifications, #MakeThemOwnIt.

A thread looking back on some of the things
the @RemainerNow campaign did beyond our social media platforms in 2019. We may have failed in our battle for a
#FinalSay to #StopBrexit but we did our best and it was made possible by many
of you who supported us in many ways.

In January, just before the first vote on1May’s Withdrawal Agreement, we set up our third #RemainerNow goes to parliament event to meet cross party MPs (previous in April and October 2018). Here was @ChrisOram1990 just before we went

We spent a good couple of hours with various MPs at different times. Here was the gang with @Anna_Soubry at the end.
(although the tweet below wrongly says Dan Carden was there instead of @darrenpjones ). Thanks to all who supported
