Only 34% of us turned up to the last #EuropeanElections.
The consequence of that was that Nigel Farage became the face of the UK.
So despite us having 3 times the average number of MEPs, Mr "Destroy the EU" wasted our influence then told us we had none.

REGISTER TO VOTE TODAY!!!
THIS is where your vote actually counts!

Some people think #ProportionalRepresentation will result in government backroom deals - the kind we didn't vote for.

But that's no byproduct of #ProRep. I know that because we have that *now* with our #WinnerTakeAll voting system, although its mostly invisible.
I can provide a case study on the backroom deal I am *very* familiar with: the 2015 Liberal Electoral Reform promise.

I made a film to help Liberal friends get Resolution 31 (they wrote) adopted at the LPC policy Convention prior to the 2015 election.
As @BardishKW said, "In 2014 the Liberal Party voted overwhelmingly to endorse what has become our Electoral Plank."

LPC members voted *overwhelmingly* for the process.

Candidate @RajSainiMP explained how it would be done.

It looks likely that both Conservative and Labour will try to force hard brexit through without a #finalsay or #optiontoremain.

How do we respond?
Thread for discussion! #waton #fbpe #stopbrexit
1/ Problem: If we have a fragmented collection of smaller efforts and parties, we will never get the gravity. We need a single political entity which stands solely for saving the country - an Emergency Alliance to Save Britain.
2/ This alliance could be formed from @libdems, @TheGreenParty , @theSNP, @Plaid_Cymru, @Renew_Britain, with help from all the campaigning groups: @ofoc @ffs @bestforbritain etc. but most importantly, MPs from Conservative and Labour who prepared to jump ship to join the effort.

So, I decided that I'm going to tweet an interesting fact or observation about life in Norway every day, because my head is full of them:
#1: Norwegians eat their sandwiches like this, with no bread on top
They have special paper to stop toppings falling off when carried around
#2: Norway is a relatively young country, only achieving true independence in 1905. This is why Norwegians tend to be deeply patriotic.
