During 2016, I campaigned with all my heart to Remain.

Very early on, I realised the 'official' Remain group ("Stronger In") was incompetent and even obstructive.

In my wilder moments, I even began to wonder if there was foul play going on.

Later, I found out that the Chair of Stronger In was Stuart Rose, a man who had previously advocated for #Leave, who is on record as stating that #Brexit would lead to higher wages and who is now vigorously opposing a 2nd referendum... Not, in my submission, a committed Remainer.
Other figureheads of Stronger In jumped onto the 'we must respect the Will of the People' bandwagon almost before the results were in, and some of them then *actively* subverted Pro EU manifestations. Any Remainer on the 'March for Europe' in September 2016 will know what I mean.
Now, in 2019, I feel as if I'm watching exactly the same thing happen all over again.

The Remain parties refuse to cooperate in the EU elections, ensuring that (under the d'Hondt system which is used) Farage will walk away with the prizes. Farage!

The Brexiters are laughing.
This means, even if we stay in the EU, Farage commands the largest UK contingent in #EUParliament for the next FIVE YEARS!

That's really going to rebuild bridges between UK and EU. Not!

But with the Remainers in the state we're in, we're going to lose the 2nd referendum anyway.
How prepared are the leaders (such as they are) of the Remain movement for a second referendum? Let alone the EU elections...

Farage has all funding and organisation up and running already. To him, the two polls will just be punch and knock-out.


Nada. Nothing. Ничего.
So I ask myself a question;

Are we finding ourselves, once again, in the hands of leaders who loudly trumpet themselves Remainers - but who in reality are soft Brexiters or even calculating careerists?

If (if!) 2016 was subverted from within, might it happen again in 2019?
If you are a Remainer, and if you understand the d'Hondt system of allocating seats (used in the UK #EUelections), look at the picture below AND WEEP.

(Remembering that ChUK doesn't even have a logo, so there are actually FIVE Remain splinter parties.)
If you're a Remainer, and you don't see what there is to worry about in my previous tweet, may I BEG you to find out.

Because I tell you; Mr Farage understands exactly what my previous tweet means to him, and he's GLOATING.

If you don't mind Farage gloating, you're beyond help!

In this thread, I have painted a dark picture of disunity and even chaos among Remainers.

But, the GOOD NEWS is this.

We can be out of this dark place by Tuesday.

All it takes is for the parties to combine for the #EUelections2019.
