It was our last Spring of hanging out together.
I read around all the arguments for Leave but in my view the EU is not our enemy
Plus I have lived in Germany, my friends & family are European
Giving them even more control seemed a bad idea.
Plain truth to me at that point was that although we definitely need change, Brexit after Austerity was change for the worse esp 4OurNHS
I had her when I was 41 - I wasn't sure I should be a mum because I'd been very unstable in my 20s and spent 6 years on Lithium and had to leave Med School before graduation because I was terrified I might act under a delusion
Certain I'd never show my child just how mad I could get.
I even made it through all the sleep-deprived intensity of being a parent of a pre-school kid with my sanity intact.
Either I'm crazy again, or the everyday people in this country are.
There is no way that Brexit is not going to hurt.
Vote Leave dismissed those warnings as ProjectFear but now we are stockpiling medicines & troops on standby
Who voted for this?
Plain truth is the cost of delivering it outweigh the savings of not paying to be part of the European Union.
Do people just not realise that? UKGov knows it.
Better safe than sorry.
Have EUref2 then we can move forward together.
No good reasons for not giving us FinalSay
People can #TellThemAgain
May's Deal is worse than our current deal & Hard Brexit will really hurt.
It's not ok to make others suffer without informed consent.
This makes me impossibly sad, as I believed that deep down myUK is kind
I wrote a lot of threads, tried different approaches, thought a lot about doing something dramatic that would make people stop & listen to what's going down here
If Brexiters were convinced that people still wanted to leave then they'd call for EURef2
This isn't democracy, it's tyranny
It seems nobody cares.
Brexit is privilege preserving itself.
We were better than this once. Now we risk losing our public service safety net.
Brexit is a self-inflicted wound that will never heal.
I don't want to live in CruelBritannia.
Make it stop
A FinalSay is an informed decision.
Plain truth is the promises made by Vote Leave cannot be delivered.
Brexit will damage our NHS at a time when we cannot bear the strain.
Not a dramatic flounce, just out of ideas & energy.
Stuck with a cognitive dissonance I can't resolve.
Brexit is definitely not going to deliver what was promised so... EURef2
Yet they still can't even take a minute to say "Er, hang on, can we just check we still want Brexit?"
We can't respect a result that was obtained under false pretences.
That's just not cricket.
Tory Brexit = Cruel Britannia
Labour Brexit = Fool Britannia
I thought the people of OurUK were kinder & smarter.
I don't want to live in this world.
I want to live in AltUK
My generation & those that came after, we're decimal not imperial.
I am where O Levels became GCSE
We mostly want to RemainEUnited.
Awful cold of the older generation removing part of our identity by making us Brexit
I've done my best but she's seen me crying in supermarkets now. That wasn't meant to happen.
2.5 yrs with a broken mum
But people are making a cold choice about her future that divides families, damages public services & reduces her rights
