Remember this piece of Leave propaganda from 2016?

Three years on, I thought it was a good time to see how their *claims* panned out, so I've tracked down the photos they used and made memes.

TL;dr — Leave was the real #projectfear!
2016 Leave claim: if you vote Remain we'll have no Parliament, no democratic voice

2019 Parliament is fighting for its sovereignty vs a dictatorial unelected govt intent on smashing our constitution & installing an Orwellian regime to inflict a no-mandate-#NoDealBrexit on us.
2016 Leave claim: if you vote Remain, it'll lead to UK break-up.

2019: #Brexit threatens UK union. 60% of Tory Party members wld rather the UK split than cancel Brexit.

Any sensible govt wld now stop this destructive project & help citizens get a grip on reality. Not this govt!
2016 Leave claim: if you vote Remain, it'll lead to the privatisation of the #NHS

2019: Oh the irony! In desperation to get a trade deal with the US to offset a tiny portion of the damage #Brexit will do to our economy, the Cons will toss the NHS to them like a piece of red meat
2016 Leave claim: voting Remain means no more Queen or Royal family

2019: can't see why anyone wld believe this...but if you love the Queen, you shld hate #Brexit, 'cos at the age of 93 it's abt to give her a right royal headache as Johnson drags her into a constitutional crisis
2016 Leave claim: visa-free access to the UK for Turks from 2017

2019: Turkey was never going to join the EU. By 2016 it had negotiated 1 of the 34 chapters of accession. At that rate of progress it wld have taken 561 years of negotiations to join! France would veto it anyway.
2016 Leave claim: EU armed forces, no British

2019: #EUarmy fears are still rampant due to the #LisbonTreatyHoax & occasional pro-#EUarmy pronouncements by foreign leaders. It requires unanimity. To change to MQV also requires unanimity. UK & other EU countries would veto both!
REMINDER: Brexiting on Oct-31 won't be #TheEnd.

Past 3yrs were only the prelude! If we #Brexit in an orderly way (with EUWA), then there'll be years of wrangling over an FTA. If disorderly, make that decades more of Brexit dominating everything.

#RevokeArticle50 = only respite.
