On 29 Mar, I stopped being a @Conservatives Party member, supporter and activist.

This account is being reconfigured. Some old followers may be dismayed. Many new ones won’t.

So what next?

A thread 1/

#Brexit #ConservativeParty #BrexitParty
My #Leave vote was about sovereignty and recovering powers lost to Brussels.

Like everyone else, I expected the result to be honoured just as no less than 2 Prime Ministers and all the party leaders promised us that it would be. 2/
Brexit has done us a favour. It has revealed that democracy in this country is a myth.

It turned out that, as usual, MPs’ public proclamations and manifesto promises were utter lies.

If implementing a democratic choice is populism , then I’m now a populist. 3/
The betrayal has been dressed up in political rhetoric but betrayal it is.

The @Conservatives Govt wants #BRINO to hoodwink voters into accepting a fake Brexit.

Many MPs really want reversal/emasculation of Brexit.

It’s an unholy alliance of cross-party dishonesty 4/
Think of the Brexit opportunities lost.

Agriculture, trade, fisheries, free ports, taxation, regulation etc. Probably all gone.

We could have used our freedom to direct sound liberal economic reforms at our poorest areas and, importantly, bring our forgotten people home. 5/
But it’s not just MPs. The full weight of the Establishment and the media has been ranged against Brexit from the start.

The HoL, swathes of the Civil Service, the BBC, TV and most newspapers.

Journalism has largely become political activism. 6/
The Establishment always avoids difficult decisions. However, aided by powerful vested interests it is now undermining the very roots of our democracy.

Those roots are the people themselves.

Only radical change can now fix this. 7/
I want 2 things. I want to punish the self-serving political dishonesty of the 2 main parties, and I want democratic control returned to the people so they can truly effect peaceful changes to their lives through the ballot box. 8/
I will relentlessly pursue those MPs that have betrayed us. It will be unpleasant but I don’t care. Enough is enough.

I will ruthlessly expose their dishonesty and I will vote for whoever damages them the most. 9/
Also, constitutional reform. Here’s a possible list

-End of 2-party oligarchy by Proportional Representation
-Devolution of powers including taxation
-Written constitution
-Removal of the HoL
-Privatisation of the BBC
-New laws on standards in public life
-MP recall 10/
The aim of these measures (some of which I have previously opposed) is to strip power away from the Establishment and return it closer to voters where it can be better controlled.

The centre has become so rotten that only major surgery will do. 11/
I have cancelled my @Conservatives membership. I will never return. It is irredeemable, even under a new leader

For now, I am supporting the Brexit Party because I won’t accept that #Brexit is lost

Thereafter, I will vote either to punish or achieve constitutional reform. 12/
New and old followers should note: do not mistake my anger to be an indication of any support for far-right politics or the marginalisation of ethnic groups in our society.

So you can take your Islamaphobia and Tommy elsewhere. I’m not interested. 13/
Brexit may yet end up on the scrap heap of lost democratic dreams, but we can use it to harness a great upwelling of popular will that can yet restore democracy to our great country.

We must first start by removing the rotten cancerous centre in Westminster. /End
