Couple of points on latest "outrages"
1) vote Tory in a GE - Vote for some undefined fantasy position between no deal & a great deal

Vote Labour - Vote for some undefined position between a great deal & remain via a referendum

Vote Lib Dem - Vote for Remain

2) if Lib Dems get a majority, it's a new, fresh democratic mandate for Remain that overrides the 2016 Ref

If Tories or Labour get a majority, it's not a mandate for anything that can be defined because they won based on an unknown - that great deal that hasn't been defined
3) If Lib Dems *don't* get a majority, there is no clear mandate and the only way to solve #Brexit is via a 2nd Referendum - this is Lib Dem policy

Only the Lib Dems could claim a mandate for anything on #Brexit following a GE, the other 2 parties could not
4) This is because a GE is a *terrible* way to solve #Brexit as:
A) neither Labour or Tories are promising a particular outcome
B) GEs for the 2 main parties are tied up in tribalism, history & multiple polices
C) Many hate Corbyn & Johnson

So votes will be for non brexit issues
5) the same is true for the LDs of course except:
A) on the main Brexit issue they are crystal clear, you know what you are getting
B) if there is a huge upswing for the LDs it will be because of that main issue, and not tribalism or other issues
6) in the absence of a GE a #PeoplesVote is absolutely the way to go.

But if a GE is coming then we need parties to be clear on what they want to happen to resolve #BrexitVote

It is profoundly undemocratic for Labour & the Tories to deliberately not do so
7) Finally, with the best will in the world it is simply wrong for Labour supporters to pretend Labour is a Remain party whilst Corbyn is in charge.

This is nothing to do with Northern seats, Corbyn wants #Brexit

As long as you have a Brexiter Leader, you are a Brexit party
8) Post script - this is for England only. There are strong pro Remain parties in Scotland & Wales who are also unambiguous on their aims to resolve #Brexit
