As you may know, campaigning against brexit is my full time 'job' at the moment. Usually, I try to focus on that and keep out of public spats as much as possible, but there are a few things that I just can't keep quiet about anymore. 1/
The first are the ppl, who attack #RemainerNow. To say this angers me is an understatement. Many of us are putting time, effort & money into getting ppl to change their minds, but a few individuals seem to think that venting their anger is more important than our shared goal 2/
If you can explain to me in what way berating #RemainerNow will help #remain, I am happy to listen and stand corrected. But right now, you are culpable if we fail. You can choose to be part of the solution, but that means not continuing to be part of the problem. 3/
To fight the lies and misinformation we must use truth and facts. We cannot compromise on these, as to do so undermines everything we have achieved. We are up against powerful forces who will exploit any such compromise. 4/
No one person is more important than the truth. We should be open to being corrected when we are wrong, as this should be about our common goal, not about us as individuals. Nobody's ego is more important than #Remain 5/
Finally, we are a large and disparate group of ppl who have come together over 1 shared issue. Inevitably we will not agree on everything. Debate is healthy and can be productive. We must not fall into the same trap as this current gov of trying to shut down debate. 6/
Insults, threats & name calling are always unacceptable. However, all too often I see perfectly reasonable questions or arguments that get labelled as 'abuse' or 'attack'. If you openly disagree with someone, be prepared to argue your point in a civil way or don't do it at all 7/
We are now in a critical phase. If we don't start thinking and acting strategically, we will lose. So please ask yourself whether you are individually more important than our shared goal. I know that I'm not. End/
