It could focus purely on the key areas - immigration, sovereignty, EU federal plans, EU wastefulness.
It could detail precise ways in which we can protect ourselves from these concerns. 2/20
But I think we should only address the areas directly detailed as being the reasons for the Leave vote. Not what we suspect may be underlying. 3/20
- Remain has no central 'manifesto'
- Arguments are confused, with much focus on Leavers being wrong, concerned un-necessarily, or stupid
- It commits UK to a 'change' agenda, when we Remain 4/20
- More general issues would be left aside for now - no austerity, NHS, FPTP/AV or right/left bias - just actions that can protect each of us from Leave concerns 5/20
The manifesto actions can deliver real results - reducing the risk of Leave fears, & at the same time educating & engaging the UK. 7/20
They may challenge liberal views, & go beyond what many Remainers think acceptable.
It’s a difficult time. Remain may need to move, to compromise. 8/20
and only in the areas directly detailed as being the reasons for the Leave vote. Not, for now, what we suspect may be underlying. 9/20
Here are some suggestions or examples: 10/20
1. Implement Registration for all immigrants, allowing the UK to enforce the 90 day deportation if no job or no proof of self-sufficiency 11/20
Might this work? Might this start to bring Britain together? 20/20
