On Saturday we sent our volunteers out to the Cross in #Chester and to Ellesmere Port to talk to the constituents of @justinmadders too. We wanted to ask whether Halloween Brexit would be a Trick or Treat. THREAD
Additionally our message in Ellesmere Port included a discussion relating to the NO-Deal related job losses at Vauxhall expected if Boris Johnson gets his way. In #Chester we want to know if people would support a #RemainAlliance
Meanwhile @EuropeWeaver set up their table in Weaverham. They experienced a good deal of gratitude from remainers really pleased to see them out campaigning for a #peoplesvote and #StopBrexit
There were a handful of leavers about too who were very much in denial of some key facts around brexit and no-deal. Some said they had no recollection of the leave leaflet which said we would get a deal and leave in an orderly manner.
One of these leavers rather sadly claimed he had never heard the term advisory referendum and refused to believe us that this was in fact.. well.. a fact. There were also sadly a couple of remainers who claimed they wanted to support leave to respect the referendum.
This narrative needs more challenge from us as deceitful government ministers repeat this story ad nauseum. It’s just jargon which takes the place of actual information for the public to make real sense of.
But overall the session was positive and we got some new supporters signed up. Everyday our supporters lists across all the groups gets bigger and bigger. Here are the scores on the doors. Looking good in #weaverham. #RevokeA50
In Ellesmere Port we had a succesful day with lots of new signups. The polarisation of views is clear there though. We found a few determined leavers in denial of the damage of no-deal but one leaver did admit it would be a catastrophe and they wanted to leave with a deal.
Still our volunteers came back enthused and happy with the new supporters they had picked up. As our support grows, parties thinking about their place in history in all this mess need to take note and support a #RemainAlliance #RevokeA50 #PeoplesVote
Meanwhile back in a very busy #Chester we struggled to talk to everyone who wanted to speak to us. Things were hotting up and strangely the town crier asked us randomly if we had a licence for our fab pasting table modelled here by our beautiful angels. Oyez Oyez #stopbrexit
A man then rather creepily started taking photos and ranting he was going to report us to the council. I think some people have a strange idea of the democracy they seem so frantic to shout about. Peaceful campaigning is part and parcel of a free country.
We are not yet at the point where political dissenters are locked up for daring to criticise or question the government and its poor decision making. We won’t be told to shut up. #StopBrexit
The table complainer proclaimed Brexit would usher in a new Victorian age. Anybody fancy volunteering their children to go up chimneys? Slum landlords? More industrial accidents as our standards are reduced in order to make a trade deal with the US? Anybody? Only these 👇👇
Another interesting visitor had been helping the #RemainAlliance in #BreconandRadnorshire and showed us the opposition leaflets. They kindly laid out the question brexit or no brexit. The people of Brecon and Radnorshire spoke and said “we want @DoddsJane we want #StopBrexit
Some Italian students enjoying their rights to Free Movement came to see us. They desperately want us to remain in the heart of Europe. They are worried about the far right in Italy and we told them we are worried about the far right here too.
We had lots of positivity and many who told us they would rather have #remain than No-Deal. Emma had to speak to a leaver from Greenwich who complained bitterly about immigrants in his town. He said we did not understand little towns like his.
Emma reminded the man that Vote leave promised EEA or similar and not no-deal which they categorically ruled out so it’s government who have broken these promises, rest of us #PeoplesVote

Our volunteers were pleased when our local MP @ChrisM4Chester came by to see us and encourage us. Although there is some polarisation in views, overall there seem to be many more enthusiastic remainers than dyed in the wool leavers.
So here were the scores on the doors in the end in #Chester and #EllesmerePort. Brexit is definitely a trick and certainly no treat. #StopBrexit
Thanks for reading and sharing this thread. We will be at #ChesterPride next Saturday so please come and see us and support us. #RevokeA50 #unitedindiversity
In the meantime if you are fed up of Boris Johnson and Co and their
Brexit Rubbish please come and help us in our fight for our star. We need your enthusiasm, your passion, your anger, your skills and your time. In short we need EU. #StopBrexit
