I have a serious problem with what my function is on twitter these days. And I doubt I'm alone. When we started off this whole Remain thing two years ago, there weren't many of us. And we worked night and day to get the message out about the benefits of EU membership.
With no help at all from the mainstream media or political parties, we were often the first to articulate the massive problems which came from triggering A50. Our mission was to educate people, to fight Leave lies, and never to ease up on the pressure.
And to a large extent, I think we succeeded. We made sure Leavers couldn't get away with lying. We kept Remain on the agenda and refused to leave the stage. We fought Kippers, Tories, Gammon and Corbynistas - or at least, those of us did who didn't want a career in Labour!
So yes, we kept the torch burning. But now, as the deadline approaches, there are so many more peole posting about Brexit than ever before. Politicians, celebrities, journalists, experts... People with platforms now have all the bases covered.
So ... having put all the information out there, what is our practical function now? Of course, we can repeat the same old info and slag off the same old players like always. And if there is a #PeoplesVote, then I'll know that my function is once again to pass on the basics.
But right now, the UK doesn't need information so much as it needs actions and decisions. From MPs. From the Government. From the BBC. From the Opposition. And all of them seem to be hiding in the pavilion until the match is over !!!
There is a disturbing stagnation in the air. Everyone knows that No Deal will be a catastrophe and that the clock is ticking. But nothing is happening !!!
We can all push the case for either a ref on the deal or to revoke A50. But we cannot vote through the legislation!
So simply put, we have done our job. The case against Brexit is clear. Any objective observer can now see clearly that a #NoDealBrexit is insane.
But what do you do when MPs and party leaders ignore the evidence? Having led the horse to water, how do you make it drink?
I have no idea. And until I have one ... or until someone in power actually makes a decision! ... I fear I may just be "tweeting in the wind".

This isn't about "giving up". It's a genuine question about how to win votes in parliament when the ERG right and the Corbyn left refuse to budge? IMO we need to force a Remain challenge for the Labour leadership right now. It's the only chance to end the deadlock.
