Today we joined other groups from Berkshire & the rest of Britain (as well as some from further afield) for the #FinalSayForAll march.
It was brilliant - the weather was good, the atmosphere was amazing, the speeches at the end were memorable.
#StopBrexitMarch #PeoplesVoteMarch
Assembling at the start of the march.
A lot of time must have gone into making this pub sign placard.

I am ecstatically delighted to say that I will be running as the @LibDems parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown & Peacehaven, whenever the next election may be. Stopping the madness that is Brexit is absolutely a top priority for any Lib Dem candidate - but... 1/
It’s not the only reason that I am standing. Our country is struggling to find her place in the 21st Century. We have an antique voting system, which the Conservatives and Labour parties have selfishly kept alive for way beyond its use by date. 2/
I am in no doubt that if our electoral system reflected the views of the country more fairly, we wouldn’t be in the mess that we are today. People should never have to vote purely to spite the other candidate or have their vote interpreted as something it is not! 3/

It's now painfully clear and beyond any doubt: 1. That the sunny, cost-free, easy-access uplands, posited by the Brexit cult, are mendacious fantasy. 2. That the ever-growing costs, downsides and consequences of Brexit are very real and intellectually indisputable.
#BrexitChaos
We may tire of confronting the undisputed opportunity costs* of #Brexit #CatastrophUK (c.£130bn so far, rising at c.£1.2bn weekly) but our *GDP *Currency *Property Values *Stock Market *Govt Borrowing *Ongoing #Brexodus (ref: @uk_domain_names) combine to drag the UK backwards.

@CBItweets said earlier that no deal planning is worthwhile because "When you see a storm coming, you still put out sandbags. We'll definitely lose the kitchen but might be able to save the bedroom"

I worked in the insurance industry during 2005. Lets unpick that analogy.

When a month's worth of rain fell in 24 hours in January 2005 it resulted the worst flooding the city of Carlisle experienced in over 200 years. 3 people died in Carlisle & around 3000 were made homeless. 2/ google.com/amp/s/amp.theg…
In the immediate aftermath the Emergency Planning Unit of Cumbria County Council called a multi agency response and established a district control centre to coordinate the efforts of emergency services, voluntary organisation, media and insurance industry adjusters. 3/

In over 3 years of campaigning to #stopbrexit I have had a lot of time to think about EU laws that affect us to our benefit.

What EU laws do you like?

Here are 10 EU laws I like and this is how they affect YOU.👇

#NoToNoDeal #Brexit #PeoplesVote
Consular Protection Directive: As EU citizens, Brits can automatically rely on consular protection from any EU country when in an emergency in a country and there is no British representation. Handy!
Transfers of Undertakings Directive: People whose employer changes after merger, takeover or acquisition are protected by EU law. Red tape slashing #Brexiters on the side of big business would probably like to remove/water down these employee protections we have.

Any #Brexit would be a total #Catastrophuc for UK! Reasons will follow in this 12 part thread, to be developed over coming days. If you know of any NET benefits from #Brexit, please feed them in. They'd need to be good to match the >£1bn pw this mess is ALREADY costing US! 1/12.
Easiest one first! Full #EU membership (as NOW) gives the UK unrestricted tariff-free & frictionless trade access to an enlarged & well developed HOME market of 550+ million people in 27 fellow member states, being SO much MORE than our own UK of 4 much smaller parts. 2/12.
Brexiteers discount EU's relentless progress in terms of comprehensive trade deals with international markets. While UK has been a busy fool, chasing Brexit and getting nowhere! EU has signed Canada, Korea, Japan and (recently) Brazil & Argentina! All OURS to access NOW! 3/12.

Today I was out campaigning with @LeedsEurope. It was the most hostile environment I have encountered to press. Take a look at this clip, see what has been unleashed. I am refusing to pander to this rubbish. Why ask the question of me 'Were you born here?'
The effrontery of this man, accuisng me of being the racist. Prior to the start of the recording he was asking me if this was still a Christian country and aggressively stating that by 2060 Brits will be a minority in this country. By the end of the clip we were 'communist scum'
Labels and 'othering' have become the norm, this is not the first time I have been asked if I was borrn here, and as I said in the clip, what did that have to do with anything? As to my being the racist, I was the only one who was asked this question.

Soon we'll be at the point where the disaster that is brexit runs out of can kicking and we finally face a choice.

No Deal.

Or postponing and ultimately defeating the whole stupid concept.

Let's look at how we got here.

Thanks to @ByDonkeys for the inspiration
The Brexiters biggest problem has been a lack of understanding between them of what brexit is. Hence the silly use of "the brexit people voted for" as a phrase to cover up "we've no bloody idea what people voted for"
In any half decent democracy brexit would never have been unleashed without a plan being created.

But not only do we STILL not have that, Brexiters havent grasped even the basic details like how to import food.

Dear leave voters,

You can’t honestly say you voted for a no deal Brexit in 2016. No one did. It simply wasn’t on the table three years ago.

We were promised a deal in 2016, and that is what leave voters voted for.
Not one leave campaigner spoke in favour of no deal during the referendum campaign. No one. Not UKIP, Farage, Johnson, Rees-Mogg, Gove etc. Even Vote Leave was clear that we’d leave with a deal.
Be honest. All talk of a no deal Brexit emerged after Maybot’s terrible deal was published, over two years after we voted. At least something unites us: we agree her deal is awful. It’s far inferior to our current terms, not least because we’d take rules without making them.

There is something terribly wrong with a country that’s preparing for shortages in peacetime thanks to something it’s government, Brexiteers and lexiters between them are railroading it into.
All on the basis of a dodgy referendum result based on promises we now know can’t be kept
We know #VoteLeaveBrokeTheLaw yet government have done nothing to pause and examine what that means for the validity of the tiny margin on which we are now turning away from the largest trading bloc in the world

Waiting for the start of the Brexit What's The Deal event at Bracknell Open Learning Centre organised by Berkshire for Europe.
We'll be live tweeting the event, so watch this space.
If you are at the event, use the hashtag #WhatsTheDealBracknell on social media.
It promises to be an interesting evening, particularly with the news this afternoon that Railways Minister @JoJohnsonUK has resigned from the government and spoken out in favour of a #PeoplesVote on Brexit rather than the choice of no deal or a bad deal.
Our speakers this evening are:
Bracknell MP @DrPhillipLeeMP who was one of the early MPs to resign their ministerial post over Brexit (for the right reasons)

Just been called a fanatic by a #Corbynista #Lexiter for daring to suggest Labour need to back a #PeoplesVote for a #FinalSay with a #Remain option to thwart the Far Right #Brexit...2 out of the 3 likes he got were from the Far Right.
What have we become?!

1. Ok bit of a revelation last night after rereading the posts against #FBPE .
Why do parts of the left and right hate us so much.
I think it's become really clear to me is the attacks don't make sense.

#PeoplesVote
2. #FBPE Both sides should actually be trying to win over the centre. Instead we are criticised for concerns about both the pillars of the political system, the system itself where proven electoral fraud is ignored by both.
Why does @OwenJones84
Work with @Jacob_Rees_Mogg
3.And both sides blame immigrants. Why did the two edges of our political universe target immigrants and #FBPE what possible connection do the targets have? Is it a love of foccacia or is it something much darker that the left and the right agree on.

Something is happening out there in #Brexit Britain [thread] 1/
Following all the ballyhoo from the #chequers cabinet & resultant white paper, something has changed. Finally the penny is beginning to drop. What is my evidence? Well of course its anecdotal but here are a few bits 2/
Watching #bbcqt last night from Brexity Dartford, there seemed to be a clear change of mood. There were the usual calls of "just leave" but the audience response was muted. @claireperrymp gave an admission - a 1st for Govt Minister of how difficult the process of leaving is. 3/

@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView You do know that the referendum was not intended as a binding instruction, yes? That the referendum was enabled by an act that explicitly laid out its advisory nature?
@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView Yes, Cameron said he'd enact it but that's all he did, say. Theresa May said she would not hold an election in 2017, but she did. Should the current government dissolve itself because of what she said? (Don't answer that)
@BasedChara @MerryMichaelW @blueunicornmoon @MagpiesView Do you know what's damaged our vote?

The ref may have been advisory but it was a legitimate democratic exercise, governed by electoral law.

The leave campaign broke all kinds of electoral laws.

If a GE was won after a corrupt campaign, for how long would the new govt last?

At @CityREDI's #BrexitRegionalImpact workshop to "discuss the likely impact of Brexit on the West Midlands economy & agree on the urgent actions that need to be taken in the crucial months ahead"

Will business take a stand for #PeoplesVote or roll over?

It's hard to see how Brexit can be seen as anything but a disaster for the West Midlands, but I will listen to everyone and report back.

What's really special about the CityREDI Brexit Impact studies is that they don't just cover the UK but also the rest of the EU.
BrexitImpact on the EU isn't as bad as on the UK but it's still bad. Hard to imagine maintaining good relations after this harm.

1.#A50Challenge disputes the govt's claims that a 'decision' to leave the EU has been made 'in accordance with [our] constitutional requirements'. The underlying assumptions of that decision haven't been tested in court. THREAD explaining why the ref result isn't a decision #FBPE
2. In 2011 the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Act was legislated during the 1st Cameroon govt. It was unique as it was a 'madatory' referendum. The same administration legislated for the Referendum Act 2015 as an 'advisory' ref; 2011 bound parliament 2015 didn't.
3. The 1975 ref process was different. It was, what's termed as, a post-legislative ref. In other words, Parliament voted for EC membership, then legislated for the Referendum Act 1975. The assent of the people (67% to 33%) then made that result binding; theoretically.

Once Upon a time, long long ago when there was no Internet, we used to phone buildings rather than people, when global trade was confined to a limited number of basic goods and very few services /1
There were Trades Unions. These organisations grew up protecting the rights of workers and furthering socialism and progressive politics in a highly regulated world of trade and capital. /2
Then in the 60s 70s and 80s they increasingly became less effective and struggling with new technology in manufacturing and global capital markets until one day they were brutally put down by the Iron Lady. /3

1. When will those craven MPs, who fail to put natl interest 1st, wake up to the harsh reality; the #Brexit vote & process was subverted & flawed, the Will of the People unclear & misrepresented & that our country can only end up Poorer, Weaker with Fewer Rights & less Control.
2. There's no way any politician can justify proceeding with this #BrexitShambles w/o at least Retesting the current Will of the Ppl.
W/o offering a Binding #FinalSayForAll on the Autumn Deal + a #StopBrexitSaveBritain option, no #Brexit can be deemed legitimate. #FairVote #ABTV
3. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour leadership are being equally disingenuous & like the Tories putting the ideology of the Far Left before the interests of their own ppl.
They can't be in power forever & future Tory Govts can do what they want outside the EU.

#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 £.

#BrexitReality
#EnlargedEurope

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. All of this flagged up by #Remain before A50 passed by the CONS & Labour..I remember distinctly our warnings that if it went thru Control passed to the EU27. It goes to prove how much damage both parties are prepared to inflict on our country to impose their ideology on us all
2. This price to buy a Transition that merely allows our politicians to kick the real impact down the road so they can con ppl into thinking things will be fine after #Brexit. If we don't #StopBrexitSaveBritain we'll be out on 29/03/19 & it will be too late to avoid the cliff.
3. This is all about leaving the EU 29/03/19..once out we've lost our BEST POSSIBLE DEAL, it will be Pay & Obey No Say on many issues ad infinitum; we'll never get back in. At that point we lose Rights...we're already losing jobs to the EU as companies relocate at least in part.

1/ Yes there is more to it than GDP. Silver lining of #Brexit is it has woken up all of us Brits who are proEU. Before EURef we did not need to be active or engaged. Now we bloody well do because the future of our country is at stake. #FBPE #WATON #REMAIN #StopBrexitSaveBritain
2/ irony of #Brexit is that it has created a massive pro EU grassroots across the U.K. Millions of British people who are just if not more passionate, determined, committed & angry as any #Leaver or #Brexiter. #FBPE #WATON #StopBrexitSaveBritain #remainernow #FinalSay #StopBrexit
3/ Why are #Remainers so committed to stopping #Brexit? More reasons than you could give in a series of tweets. First & foremost we believe it is catastrophic to our country & we therefore have a duty to stop that damage to our country #fbpe #WATON #StopBrexit #REMAIN #FinalSay
