โ†’ Why BIG decisions need BIG support โ€“ share 2-minute video

Big decisions need big support. Thatโ€™s surely something weโ€™ve learnt following the fiasco of #Brexit that most of the electorate never supported. Letโ€™s look at it this way.

Say youโ€™re the boss of a company with 100 employees. You let the staff vote on whether the firm should move to a new location.

โ–ช 37 staff voted yes,
โ–ช 35 staff voted no,
โ–ช 28 didnโ€™t vote (many staff werenโ€™t sure)

There was so much wrong with the #EUreferendum, that had it been a legally binding vote, instead of just โ€˜advisoryโ€™, the courts could and would have annulled the result as compromised and unsafe. The problems with the #Brexit โ€˜winโ€™ are so numerous, so serious, and so undemocratic, that the country should have a new democratic opportunity to reconsider our departure from the #EU.

In the following tweets are just SOME of the reasons why:

Going ahead with #Brexit, with the support of a mere 37% of the electorate and with half the nations of the UK voting against it, was sheer, reckless, madness. There are NO benefits to #Brexit; none whatsoever. Only severe downsides, that are hurting Britain now and will increasingly hurt us in the years ahead.

โ‘  The country was misinformed โ€“ retweet!

Thatโ€™s because, in the 2016 #EUreferendum, the electorate was not sufficiently informed. On the contrary, we were grossly misinformed. โ‘ก Legally, informed consent means that consent has been given with full knowledge of:

โ–ช the risks involved,
โ–ช the probable consequences,
โ–ช and the alternatives.

โ†’ Proof that voting for Leave was a vote for the unknownโ€ฆ

Hereโ€™s a question for you, I wrote in my report of February 2016: โ€˜๐—ช๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ธ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜…๐˜ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ๐˜€ ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ธ๐—ฒ?โ€™

No, me neither. But thatโ€™s what those campaigning for Britain to leave the #EU were expecting voters to do โ€“ vote to end our membership of the EU without knowing what weโ€™d have instead.

The problem LEAVERS had is that they simply didnโ€™t know, and for sure they couldnโ€™t agree.

โ‘  The #EUreferendum was undemocratic. Many people directly affected were denied a vote.

Citizens living in the UK from over 70 nations could vote in the EU referendum, but most citizens living here from the rest of the #EU could not. โ‘ก Including Britain, 55 countries across the world are members of the #Commonwealth, and all citizens from those countries resident with โ€˜leave-to-remainโ€™ in the UK were granted a vote the #EUreferendum.

They included citizens living here from Australia, Canada, Ghana, India..

โ‘  THE TRUTH ABOUT MIGRATION: Britain has more jobs than Britons to fill them. That, in a nutshell, is why we need migrants and millions of them. โ‘ก The country has a chronic skills shortage and without migrants helping to fill that gap, Britain โ€“ and Britons โ€“ would be poorer.

Business Secretary @KwasiKwarteng admitted that the UK signed the #NorthernIrelandprotocol of the #Brexit deal without having any idea how it would work out. Watch and share this 1ยฝ-minute video. Discussion on Facebook: LinkedIn: On Sky News, Business Secretary @KwasiKwarteng said

โ€œWith the #NorthernIrelandprotocol, obviously nobody had any idea the actual effects of it until we left the #EU"

He added that the government now realises that the deal is not satisfactory โ€œas it isโ€ and wants to renegotiate

Lord @DavidGHFrost isnโ€™t happy with the #NorthernIrelandProtocol that HE negotiated. He wants to โ€œreturn to normalโ€. Isnโ€™t #EU membership โ€œnormalโ€? That avoided ALL the problems Frosty is griping about and it's what he supported BEFORE the #EUReferendum. Watch ยฝ-minute video. Before the #EUreferendum, the then Mr @DavidGHFrost strongly supported the case for Britain to REMAIN in the #EU. He said then AGAINST #Brexit: โ€œEven the best-case outcome canโ€™t be as good as what we have now.โ€

Yesterday, during a mammoth BBC TV interview, #DominicCummings said that anyone who was sure that #Brexit was a good idea had a screw loose. And then he went on to say that he thought Brexit was a good idea and was pleased that it had happened. Watch and share 1-minute video. This time last year, #DominicCummings told an unbelieving nation that during the #Covid #lockdown he went for a drive just so he could test his #eyesight. Many of us then thought something was missing. Now we can be sure.

With the introduction of a more efficient โ€˜Single European Skyโ€™, the #EuropeanParliament (@Europarl_EN) wants to make #EU #airspace and the #aviation sector greener, more resilient, and fairer to consumers. (2-minute video)

Sadly, Britain is not part of this initiative. We were told that #Brexit would mean more sovereignty. But as it turns out, it means less.

We no longer have any say in the running and future direction of our continent, even though the decisions made will affect us, whether we're a member or not.

Britain has more job #vacancies than can be filled by the native workforce. That, in a nutshell, is why we need #migrants and millions of them. #Brexit was a con. Watch this 1ยฝ-minute video. Read my report on Facebook: LinkedIn: It's not just vacancies. Britain has more JOBS than Britons to do them. That's why we need millions of migrants. It really is that simple. Why else would the government offer 3 million Hong Kong citizens the right to come to the UK? Leave voters were misled... big time.

โ‘  of โ‘ง On my Facebook page, under my video about the case for #Breturn, ardent #Brexiter Bob Pattenden commented: โ€˜You canโ€™t accept a Democratic vote you lost get over it and move on, but you always have the democratic choice to move to a EU country but my guess is you wonโ€™tโ€™ Image โ‘ก of โ‘ง I replied: My Facebook page only supports strictly democratic means to achieve change. In a #democracy, if you lose, you don't have to give up. You can hope and campaign to win next time. That's precisely what #Brexiters did after they lost.
