Conservatives using strategy that won Australian right a surprise GE victory. Don't fall for it. Facebook memes and "no 10 source" leaks to @bbclaurak and @Peston are deliberately made ridiculous so you comment/reshare in outrage. THREAD /1

Here's why it works. (1) social media is about having your message out there CONSTANTLY, and (2) most of us comment / reshare WAY more when outraged. It's the natural reaction to fight what is outraging you. #classicdom, #BorisJohnson and the #Conservatives know this. /2
They build their social media strategy around outraging you so that you comment and share over and over. This does at least two things. First, you keep their messages trending. It doesn't matter that you are rubbishing them because their message is designed better than yours. /3

Thread 1/4. The Rees-Mogg heckling Saturday looks like an inside job. Brexiters pretending to be Remain. Tory media got the story they wanted to run = the million protesting are all nasty remainers. Anyone surprised yet? A few thoughts.

2/4 It’s very out of the norm for several key government figures to leave the House on foot, especially knowing so many people are around. If you’re JRM with your son, a million people outside, why choose a walkthrough unless you expect useful coverage?
#StopTheCoup #RevokeA50
3/4 So you’d need a guarantee before you’d do it, to know in advance you’re both safe, it’s just stage-managing some fake news? And plenty of ministers have helpful press links. One obvious one, rhymes with Loathe.

I'd like you all to follow me on a little #Brexit thought experiment.

Imagine there was a referendum on the legality of cannabis (bare with me, I am going somewhere with this). The question asked of people was thus:

"Should Cannabis, in all its forms, be illegal in all cases?"
It's a simple Yes-or-No question. And if the overall result is 'Yes', then the actions taken by the government are equally simple - ban all the WackyBaccy. No plants, no oils, no medical applications - nada.

A 'No' result, however, is a bit more complicated.
Voting 'No' could cover a number of different possibilities:
-Legalised medicinal oils only
-Legalised medicinal oils + smoking
-Legalised medicinal + recreational use (if over 18) + licenced suppliers
-Legalised med + rec (18+) but no licence required for supply

20 February 2016:

"Justice Secretary Michael Gove has said Britain would be "freer, fairer and better off outside the EU"."

"Four other cabinet ministers - Iain Duncan Smith, Chris Grayling, John Whittingdale and Theresa Villiers - have signed up to the Leave campaign."
"By leaving the EU we can take control. Indeed, we can show the rest of Europe the way to flourish."

Operation Yellowhammer comes to mind!!!

Perhaps Gove would care to review his statement he made in 2016 - to convince voters to vote to leave EU!
"Instead of grumbling and complaining about the things we can't change and growing resentful and bitter, we can shape an optimistic, forward-looking and genuinely internationalist alternative to the path the EU is going down."

Austerity is the 'political choice' of Tory Party!

If #LiarJohnson gets his way, it will only benefit the crooked, plotting, greedy far-right extremists who have been ruthlessly prepared to lie, cheat & bully their way to it from the start. They’ve been abetted by foreign interference, outrageously complicit press
1/
barons, a useless opposition & many timid, unprincipled MPs. They will all be remembered for failing the country in its moment of direst need by all, as the reality of Brexit unfolds.
The extremists will get their way & the UK will turn in on itself & slink away to become an
2/
isolated bit player on the international stage. We will no longer be a member of the biggest trading bloc on the planet, just a tasty feast for the big players like the US & China to exploit as they vie to pick all the meat off our defenceless economic bones.

"The complex utopian narratives of theLeavecampaign can be called Brexitism; its adherents Brexists."

"All envisaged the recovery of a lost British Eden as the construction of a perfect future."

Fantasy, fairytales and Unicorns!!
"Ernst Bloch argued that utopianism represents the triumph of hope over experience. And as all sides have recognised, very little in the recent referendum debate was concerned with the details of the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union."

...little basis in reality!
"The Leave campaign - dominated by hope, and all questions about what might happen after Brexit were brushed aside."

#LiarJohnson still refuses to offer proposals for future relationship between UK and EU - simply focused on ripping up UK membership of EU!!

NO Brexit strategy!

Thread: I just wrote to email.number10.gov.uk and sent copies to media:
Reading the #yellowhammer leaked and redacted publicised versions, it is evident that #Brexit is the disaster the experts have been warning about. #
2/ We also know why the 31/10 date is so important as it will allow the people that donated their money to the Johnson campaign to recoup their investment by betting on the markets. The public can not be fooled anymore. #LiarJohnson #RevokeArticle50
3/ We would like to put it on record that if anyone dies because of no deal, we will hold the Government accountable and we will prosecute the Government for their death. #LeafAlliance #StopTheCoup

Using hashtags and trending words - How not to make a hash of it on twitter - a thread.

Sadly I see too many people saying that they don't see the point of #hashtag ging - or that it is silly - or doesn't help....

So bear with me here...

Bookies suspend GE Bets. You are right to feel uncertain!

Varadker to meet withthe PM next week. (Will That be another cancellation?)

DUP seat(s) likely loss in a GE.

Tory seats likely lost in a GE

Labour seats likely lost in a GE

But we need unity to maximise Remain.
They don’t look happy on their way into the PM meeting do they.

Maybe they look as ashamed as they should.
More details about the poll. Given its size (10K in this story, 8k elsewhere) and if it is Focaldata there is a likelihood it will MRP analysis be constituency based.

A critical moment is coming - the moment it is confirmed that Parliament has been suspended.

At that moment, we must pour into London and lay siege to Whitehall. And STAY THERE until Parliament is restored.

No ifs, no buts. WE MUST NOT FAIL THIS TEST. #BlockTheCoup
Yes, if #LiarJohnson tries to silence our Parliament, we will #TakeWhitehall. And, let us be clear: we WILL NOT be seeking permits from the "authorities". The "authorities" are those stealing our liberty. We don't want their permission, we want them GONE. #BlockTheCoup
IMPORTANT!
I am one voice, and I could be silenced. I need others to pile onto this. The plan is simple:

IF Johnson shuts Parliament, put out a call using #FBPE and #TakeWhitehall. That's it.

Then everyone get your arses to Whitehall and stay there till democracy is restored.
