1. Democracy is not a free ride. Remember Franklin, asked by a woman: ‘What manner of government have you bequeathed us?’ And Franklin replied: ‘A Republic, Madame - if you can keep it’.
2. Can we keep our democracy safe? We have a government misusing prorogation to limit debate on a potential no-deal Brexit. We have Michael Gove - a former Lord Chancellor - declining to commit the government to abiding by a law passed this week.
3. So: what are we going to do? Call out the #LeaveElite. Ask ministers again and again if they respect the #ruleoflaw. Demand answers on what, exactly an #adequatefoodsupply means. Speak truth to power. Act as citizens, not rebels. Act with rage, not hate.
4. Ask yourself what you’ll tell your friends and family 20 years from now about how you conducted yourself IN the weeks ahead. The #LeaveElite wants us to act like frogs in slow-boiling water. Don’t let them get away with it. This is your country. ENDS
