1/4 Dear @choosedemo @StandUpRepublic @IndivisibleTeam @ProtectResults,

What more than this do we need to see to call this a #coup and mobilize against it?

- Trump’s refusal to concede;
- Trump‘s personal and official refusals to participate in the transition process;
2/4
- McConnell’s public statement supporting Trump’s refusal to concede made within an hour of Barr meeting with McConnell at McConnell’s offices;
- McEnany using her position and office to spout campaign propaganda;
- Esper’s warning days before he was fired: “Who’s going ...
3/4 ... to come in behind me? It’s going to be a real ‘yes man.’ And then God help us.”;
- Trump‘s end run around the appointment confirmation process by replacing Esper with a man who could not by law be confirmed under 10 U.S. Code § 113 as Acting Sec’y of Defense;

Peaceful revolution in the UK: some personal thoughts on the need for #SystemChange and the potential for making it happen. [thread] 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove #JohnsonMustGo
In the wake of the #RussiaReport ⬇️ & the ongoing #COVID19 & #ToryCorruption scandals, there has been a noticeable increase in talk about protest against this obviously compromised “government”… 😠✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #revolt #remove
For many, the flagrant corruption of the new “honours” list feels like the last straw. We can let this anger & stress gnaw at us, or we can harness it against these disgraceful crooks… 😖✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove

A short thread about resisting the #kleptofascist takeover, with an added last-ditch family appeal. 😐✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #StopFascism #RuleOfLaw
When the execrable Cummings/Johnson regime launched its attack on Parliament back in August, I was horrified: this was in fact a coup against democracy. Like thousands of others, I hit the streets to protest. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #StopTheCoup #resist #JohnsonMustGo #RuleOfLaw
As a historian with Asperger’s & misophonia, the idea of giant crowds is truly horrifying to me, and I’d much rather be quietly writing books in the countryside… 😐✊🌹🇪🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #autism #Aspergers #AutismStrong #resist

A scary story in three acts, plus a coda.

Act 1 - “That’s ridiculous, they can’t be serious”

Act 2 - “Oh cripes, I get it now...”

You remember #stopthecoup?

24th September - barely 2 months.
Inconceivable really, both that it could happen, and the mobsters could then stand.

Except...who'd have thought.
Turns out piracy pisses off OneNations more than anything else

Come, tour #Kensington for a fun story
They're not the normal #Tory lot here. Where the #Tory money is, normally #Brexit follows. So when they kicked out a Lady of the Manor in 2017, eyes opened.

A huge slice of the Tory base jumped ship for a #labour MP, @emmadentcoad. Tories, putting country before party? Nah??
It didn't help that the Lady MP, in London's most European borough, was the sort to cackle delight at #Brexit

Either way, we thought they'd learn. Tories aren't stupid, right?

So imagine our delight when they finally picked a PPC from...#brexitcentral. How to make friends.

.@SwapMyVote was a powerful #TacticalVoting tool in 2017 and helped to deny the Tories a majority.

@SwapmyVote Alice lives in Town X. She’s always voted for the Red Party, but they can’t win where she lives. If she wants a progressive MP to represent her, she needs to vote Yellow, because they can win. It’s not ideal.
#TacticalVoting #SwapMyVote #StopTheCoup
@SwapmyVote Bob lives in Town Y. He’s a lifelong Yellow Party voter, but they don’t stand a chance in Town Y. The Red Party can potentially win if all progressive voters get behind them though. He’ll vote Red, although he’s not that keen.

I've written about #Brexit since 2015 #FBPE, mostly in threads to go deeper than Twitter otherwise allows.

Typically I give a pic summary, with a thread of evidence. Trust nothing without source material. Use, bookmark or share what I do - it's made for you.

Let's #StopBrexit.
The main Tread runs continuously, off links are topics.

Thread 1. "Opposing The Brexits is a Democratic Obligation".

The original 2016 Brexit is lost. And with it any democratic consent. #StoptheCoup is accurate. It is a Coup.

Thread 2. "A Return to the EEC"

So could there have been a compromise between #Remain and #Leave that left the UK better off?

This thread was the culmination of about a year's work to find one.

Not easy. Not perfect. But far far better than Boris.

Would you look at that, @SayWhenLA is mentioned in this insane New York Times article about President Trumps twitter.

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
@SayWhenLA Did I mention that this article is insane? They analyzed President Trump's 66.5 million twitter FOLLOWERS and found that 23,000 of them have references to Q Anon in their bios.

This is psychotic lol.
@SayWhenLA The New York Times themselves say that President Trump's mentions include fake accounts from foreign governments (R) then try to attack President Trump over insane tweets in his mentions (L).

Seriously this article is freaking bonkers 😂😂😂

To find a position that works for Remainers, delivers the 2016 will of the people and satisfies moderate leavers.

Not easy. Not Perfect. But better than Boris.

This will be a short thread on the People vs Parliament fraud because really everyone should understand how close to #Terrorism this is.

It's beyond any legitimate democratic approach. And it's encouraged by the offshore tax haven owned Brexit media

The pronouncements ERG makes from the privileged floor of the Commons on sovereignty are self serving.

As a barrister put it after the Miller 1 case pic⏬.

You may not like this and I'd agree. The problem is that Brexiters relied on this multiple times to create Brexit.
I'll go through the most important events which enabled #Brexit and show this lie.

1. 2015 EU Ref Bill (attached)
A pre-legislative consultative referendum (commonly advisory).

Why was this?

Justified because Parliament, not People is sovereign. #FBPE

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.

#StopBrexit #StopTheCoup #mondaythoughts
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 am Adam Schiff. I represent the 28th congressional district. Disney, NBC, CNN & other media mouse houses are here. I am in Nancy’s House. (I take care of her lingerie & when I’m in DC I sleep in it). In open session I paraphrased the president’s words to show his intent. Now...
...it's time to paraphrase my intent. Listen good because I’m only gonna say this once. Nancy and I are envious of the President of the United States, Donald J Trump. Nancy and I started colluding to frame the president right after the election. We are like-minded, working...
...with other like-minded mouses in our House to harm everything about the president and we will say and do anything to make that happen. Can you do me a favor and keep this secret. I like to plan and have long- game plots, then I leak to the Fake News located in my...

With the news of #JuliaHartleyBrewer appearing on @bbcquestiontime tonight, I’ve sent in my first-ever letter of complaint to the BBC. It’s brutal: (THREAD) #BoycottBBCQT
Dear BBC

I am disgusted that #JuliaHartleyBrewer is on @bbcquestiontime. I tune in to watch most weeks or catch up online, but I cannot watch tonight, out of principle.
My objection to Ms Hartley-Brewer isn’t for political reasons. She has a right to her opinion, and I respect that, even if I don’t agree with it. It’s not about Brexit either. #BoycottBBCQT

Miller vs Odey: the Brexit crisis explained through the medium of fund managers, with a bonus survey… 🤓✊ (thread) #RuleOfLaw #StopTheCoup #StopBrexit 🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺
Compare and contrast Gina Miller and Crispin Odey… Both are British fund managers, and both are wealthy, but their very different responses to Brexit are most illuminating. 🧐 #Brexit #StopBrexit 🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺
Odey was born into a wealthy family of industrialists, and was educated at Harrow & Oxford. He set up Odey Asset Management in 1991, and it now has several billion pounds under management. He was briefly married to Rupert Murdoch’s daughter. His net worth is c£775m. #StopBrexit

⚠️Watch @ianCLucas' quiet calm testimony today about the contemptible conduct of VoteLeave.
They are now our government.
He shared very damning evidence from DCMS Sub-Committee on Disinformation, concerning our PM & his special adviser, along with others
@IanCLucas (Apologies for missing the lack of capital in your username Mr Lucas - thank you for speaking the truth for the record 🙏🏽) #StoptheCoup
@IanCLucas He also raised this very worrying evidence about Gove trying to escape scrutiny #StopTheCoup

Brexit affects everyone and everything. Hear our #R4OR /thread

#SundayMotivation
Employers and employees- you are all on the same side on this one. You all need a healthy economy and stable political environment to thrive. The Single Market is the biggest trading bloc in the world and its cold outside believe me #R4OR #StopBrexit
The care sector is already fragile as hurt EU27 citizens have headed for the door to somewhere they are wanted. Even the government says Brexit will damage the care of our elderly and vulnerable #R4OR #StopTheCoup
