I recognise this same behaviour in #Brexit. #Brexiters needed an enemy so #Remainers became the enemy.

And the more ridiculous and divorced from 2016 Brexit that their ideas became so the more Remainers pointed that out...…

...and the more #Brexiters dug into even worse outcomes driving further lies.

A mutual assured destruction of UK plc.

Could it have been resolved differently?

Well, I can think of many ways that #Brexit could have been an objective project managed on its merits. But...
3/4...none were possible after the lies of 2016.

I think three things could have saved us.

1. Leadership.
a) a good PM would have kicked Brexit into review
b) a good opposition would have built a strong case against.

2. Free Press
If we had one Brexit would have been buried.

@DPJHodges Just read your piece.

Difficult to cut thru all YOUR hate, scorn & vitriol, but I discern the kernel of an idea — that people want to be respected & *feel* Remainers don't.

That's actually a fair point, but don't you think you'd convey it better if you didn't hate-coat it?
@DPJHodges Is it actually *true* Remainers don't respect Leavers, or is it just folk like you putting that narrative out there?

a) you prime your readers' reaction by starting with the word *bitter* & using a string of pejoratives (As BITTER REMOANERS RANT... FRUITCAKES & LOONIES)

@DPJHodges Was Campbell being "bitter" when he mocked a 50p coin? Or was he merely thinking, like millions of us, that the inscription felt rather at odds with "17 million F*** Offs" proponents of the #Brexit ideology pride themselves on giving to the EU?

Was that just you editorialising?

Today is such a hard day for so many people, with so much negative reporting and little to find that is good.
But for what it’s worth, I say:
F*ck the stiff upper lip.
It's okay to cry. Let those tears roll down your face. Weep for what is lost. /2
2/ It's okay - and vitally important - to call someone or tweet if you're not feeling ok. Don't bottle it up. There are +/- 17 million of us feeling the same who are ready to talk, to listen, to hold out a hand, along with the professional organisations. Don’t be isolated. /3
3/ We won't be the first to lose everything we've worked for. Past generations, and probably many of us, have already picked up the pieces and started again in times of financial insecurity, deaths of loved ones, any situation our human condition throws at us. /4

#london RT to restart campaign to leave the UK.

Remember #Scotlond? Maybe it's just my Scottish heritage, but it feels like we share more with #SNP than we do with the (average*) of the rest of the UK.
*I'm sorry English #Remainers, I know you're stuck with them, empathy.
London and Scotland are #taxationwithoutrepresentation, dragged from EU against our will. We are the new #BostonTeaParty and the #NewEnglishEmpire is just as arrogant today as the old one was 246 years ago on 16th December.

Time WE took back control.…
Despite what tory offshore owned tabloids say, London has some of the most deprived areas in the UK. It shares a long history of financial services and entrepreneurship with Scotland and similar politics
And best of all - together we are 20% of the UK, but 30% of tax revenues

Hi #Remainers and #FBPE. As we move into this ridiculous #Brexit GE on Halloween, I gift you with an on thread theme....and the right to IGNORE 2016.⏬

No propaganda.

Take back our Democracy from these ghouls who would sell our souls and NHS for cash
The lies are unprecedented. Everyone knows both campaigns lied.
They did, but since then the distortions created by the soulless ghouls leading this abomination have worsened.

But in so doing they have helped. Because now their deals look NOTHING like they claimed
Give the bastards credit. Brexit is quite the accomplishment

The richest, most out of touch predatory bastards in the country, persuaded those with not enough to vote for something that would give them even less believing they'd take back control.

JG's proud of them

There is no compromise for #remain in this brexit deal. For MPs who think it will bring people together once again they are indulging in sheer fantasy. The compromise is between a hard brexit and a slightly less hard brexit, all being harder than Mays WA which was pretty hard.
The people who have yapped on for 3 years about EEA Norway etc have completely wasted their breath. As soon as Mays red lines were drawn this option was out of the picture. If labour MPs think this deal is right they are doing a great disservice to the country.
The biggest Pro EU movement in Europe is not going to disband if brexit is imposed without at the very least a chance for people to have a voice at the ballot box ON. THE DEAL. #Leave have completely ignored #remainers concerns for 3 years.

#Remainers You aren’t retweeting stuff. This means that you are keeping the information inside our circle. If it is ever to break out of the Remain bubble you must hit retweet, or accept that Twitter is a masturbatory tool rather than a campaigning tool. If you see what I mean.😈
I’m honestly not finger wagging, but I’ve seen some amazing, thought provoking tweets this morning and it is great campaigning material. I’m sad if we are the only ones who see it.
I’m glad this has provoked discussion. Maybe that is one of the most valuable things we can do. #BollocksToBrexit

Here's my thread of thoughts about the Brexit shambles. Sorry for the medical analogy, but it's sort of my thing.
Imagine you have a dodgy gall bladder. It occasionally flares up and causes pain and that sucks, so you go to a doctor for help to have it removed.
During that consultation, your doctor says they can remove the gall bladder and presents you with a consent form to sign. It contains largely incorrect information about the potential risks and problems involved, as well as a long list of unbelievable benefits of the surgery.

"European Union Defence plans are associated with the eventual formation of a European Federal State. Under the current system of unaccountable governance, an unelected oligarchy. A nation state that contracts out its defence has ceased to be."…

My mother was twelve years old when Oswald Mosley held a rally in Swansea. Her maiden name could be construed as a Jewish name so she and her brothers and sisters endured all kinds of hate and bullying as a consequence. /2
2/ I was far younger than 12 when she taught me that fascism is hate. I can’t think of a time when I didn’t know what fascism was. It was an extraordinary thing to teach a young child, now I look back on it, but she would never allow us to say “I hate”. /3
3/ She had lived through the slump, the fascism of the 30s and the second world war. All before she was 25. She would say: “You are not to hate. Hate kills. If you hate, you kill.” Rather, we had to find a solution to whatever the thing was that we hated. /4

*Sigh* after weeks of yo-yo-ing optimism I can now clearly see what PM Boris is going to do in the next weeks and months... and us #Remainers aren't going to like it.

Here goes... *DEPRESSING THREAD WARNING!* #brexit #borisjohnson (1/?)
(1) Boris with his unique style is the one man who can reunite the majority of the Conservative Party into agreeing to May's Deal.

He will sit down with the 1922 & probably the ERG to tell them it's May's Deal or disaster (GE, 2nd Ref, Brexit Party decimation)...
(2) And they will sign up to it!

Every one of them.

Because it will cease to be "May's Deal" & become "Boris' Deal". Boris, co-leader of the Leave campaign. Boris the great marketeer (bullshitter). Boris their last final hope to salvage Brexit & the Tory Party.

A lot of guff today (only a little of it from Boris!) on the £39bn #Brexit ‘divorce bill’ which the UK is expected to pay as part of May's deal. The key point is that the £39bn is meant to honour commitments *already made* during the period of the UK’s membership... (1/8)
It is therefore simply wrong for #Remainers to claim that the £39bn is a ‘cost’ of Brexit that we could avoid by staying in (and that it should have been on the side of a bus too). In reality, the £39bn is money the UK would have had to pay anyway, even if still a member… (2/8)
However, it would also be wrong to assume that we would save the whole £39bn by leaving with #nodeal. I’m well aware that many experts (including a HoL committee) have argued that the UK would be on strong *legal* ground if we decided to walk away without paying a penny… (3/8)

Things #Remainers clearly still do not know about the #EU, although this could be such a huge thread as there are so many that I have tried to list only the most important ones, but please feel free to add anymore. Thread 1/11
The 1st thing was the framing of the referendum question to leave or to remain a binary once in a generation vote. Framing was crucial as by now we would have become a fully integrated member of the #EU had we voted to remain but we voted to leave despite the lies of Remain. 2/11
There would never have been a 2nd #EU referendum vote. As a fully integrated Eurozone member state your electorate has no say on the following five policy areas: (i) monetary policy, (ii) fiscal policy, (iii) trade policy, (iv) immigration policy & (v) industrial policy. 3/11

A #brexit thread 👇

1. In 2017 we were invited to #No10 to talk to Gavin Barwell about our thoughts on things. I had a conversation with him on #Brexit that rings absolutely true now and is more relevant than ever - so I thought I'd share:
2. I said to him that #Brexit had redrawn 'party lines' - that right/left was now less relevant that #leave/#remain and we had to examine our 'core vote' on that basis. We had done well in the #Mansfield-esque seats and lost the Croydons, we needed to think about why.
3. I said to Barwell that there was no compromise that would keep both #remainers and #leavers happy. That we could not keep both audiences on board in the context of #Brexit and we should not try - it's impossible. We had to leave first, and then we could rebuild the coalition.

What “Continuity #Remainers” do not understand or do not care about, this will be a long thread as anyone with an #FBPE on their Twitter profile still appears to have a lot to learn and understand about the #EU and its complete and utter ruthlessness – Thread 1/17
The first point was the biggest lie of the entire referendum, a bigger lie than Chuka’s bus, a bigger lie than no #EU army, even a bigger lie than the Treasury forecasts was that there was ever Continuity Remain in the first place. The #EU can only survive through expansion. 2/17
Expansion of power, territory and control over its citizenry and in order to achieve this it has already (i) put itself on a warpath with Russia over the Ukraine and now (ii) wants to impose itself on Africa through the use of the #EU army. 3/17

THREAD on the Subject of #Brexit & Respect...with a hint of Betrayal.

#Remain #Remainers, #RemainerNow Pls RT or feel free to Use this whenever you are told to Respect the Non-Binding Referendum & by all means add some more.
1. #Brexiters & #Lexiters have 2 justications, apart from 'we won you lost', for the #BrexitShambles.
Namely that we must RESPECT the #Brexit Ref result & that to seek to overturn it would BETRAY the Will of the 'British People'. (nb they often omit the N. Irish)
2. Respect or Lack of Respect & Betrayal at the heart of should we Respect the EURef 2016 & Who or What is being Betrayed?

1. Never forget the Elephant in the Room..never debated not Consented. #Brexit = Loss of Rights.
If we don't stop the #BrexitShambles we know what follows Tories will Remove them outside the protections we currently have under international treaty...…
2. #Brexit is all about deregulation & Removal of Rights & Protections.
The EU doesn't prevent a Govt adding them as a member so why would the Govt wish to leave & repatriate control if not to Remove them?
This has No Consent

Thread 1) In response to this petition shared by @simonbruni, people have said the solution #citizensrights is to Remain in EU. They are right, but meantime many EU27 and EFTA citizens in UK live with insecurity and uncertainty over settled status.…
2) This Perth for Europe member was given two weeks, during school holidays, to provide extra information to the Home office or have her citizenship application refused. Luckily she was only away for a week.…
We asked MP @PeteWishart to get involved. His office deal with this type of issue frequently – it's not a one off, but part of the #HostileEnvironment. And what of EU27 citizens who can't afford the £1300+ to get citizenship? Or from countries which don't allow dual nationality?

1. Seen quite a bit of anti #FBPE nonsense...mainly from the further left..we've been called a cult by Corbynistas...I'd remind them, cultists worship deities PEOPLE or objects; opposing a #Brexit which is leaving us all Poorer, Weaker with Less Control & Fewer Rights is neither.
2. Using #FBPE doesn't make us anti Corbyn or Labour it makes us anti #Brexit & sadly that means we are in opposition to those who are forcing a flawed #BrexitShambles upon the Ppl & denying the Ppl a #FinalSay a #PeoplesVote to Confirm the Will of the Ppl to leave or to #Remain.
3. Fighting to give the Ppl a #FinalSay nor indeed giving the Ppl a #PeoplesVote doesn't thwart #Brexit nor disrespect merely allows everyone to Confirm if they still want it or now to #StopBrexit &'s called DEMOCRACY as it allows ppl to change their minds

Backed by 70% of voters (#LocalElections2018) our two major parties aim to take UK down to the minor leagues of sub-#G20 growth, supported by NO detailed plans as to the costs, complexities & consequences of such bizarre recklessness. Not just insane, but amazingly short-sighted!
2. Is this a case of who blinks first? Surely I, and fellow well-informed remainers, are not in exclusive possession of key economic facts and trends? Con/Lab MUST have these too? Maybe everyone should check the latest @guardian piece by @williamnhutton!
3. People who think Brexit (in any form!) would be easy, painless or cost-free are very sorely deluded! Maybe the 70% who just voted Con/Lab in #LocalElections2018 should have been asking 'that question' of their wannabe councillors? before parting with their votes? Too late now!

#Remain voted for:

A say in whether the EU enlarges or not.
A say in if the EU federalises or remains a union of independent states.
A say in if there is an EU army.
Being the financial capital through which the majority of € is traded while still keeping the £.


The UK has taken the lead in efforts for EU enlargement. It pushed for the inclusion of Eastern European states. It pushed for Turkey to get its shit together so that it could join (which it made very slow progress with, and has largely been undone by Erdogan)
After #Brexit, the UK will have no influence on EU enlargement. In fact, as setting the EU as a rival, every country that joins the EU will a) strengthen the EU, and b) unravels any trade deals that the UK will have made with that country, isolating it further.

1/ Liz it is not that you reported on Nigel & Jacob throwing some fish into the Thames. It’s that you did not also report on many many many more people marching against #Brext. The logic given for. It doing so does not add up.
2/ it is also that you did not raise critical & basic questions in regard to said stunt throwing of fish into the Thames. It is the total Government pro #Brexit. Has exhibited by @BBCNews in recent years.
3/ It is the sheer number of appearances by #Brexiters such as #farage versus #Remainers. It is the ambush mounted on @carolecadwalla by @AndrewMarr9 & #Brexstremjst guest
