Yes, if #LiarJohnson tries to silence our Parliament, we will #TakeWhitehall. And, let us be clear: we WILL NOT be seeking permits from the "authorities". The "authorities" are those stealing our liberty. We don't want their permission, we want them GONE. #BlockTheCoup
I am one voice, and I could be silenced. I need others to pile onto this. The plan is simple:
There follow two alternative visions of November 1st. Please read them both then vote. 1/
Version A. Harriet Harmon, who was nominated by Jeremy Corbyn as Labour's first woman prime minister, calls a general election having first agreed a further extension with the EU. Corbyn is confident of leading his party to victory. /2
Version B: Johnson has carried out his threat to leave the EU with no deal. All cross-Channel ferries have been cancelled because of congestion on the French side. Queues on the M20 and. M2 stretch all the way to London. There is mass looting. Martial law has been invoked. /3
Here, have a flavour of the job losses caused by Brexit over recent days...
Hot off the blocks, Today's papers are full of the collapse of Laterooms.com and its sister company Super Break. 250 jobs gone at a stroke. Surely nothing to do with the slumping pound and an impending recession? theguardian.com/business/2019/…
Just two days ago, I learned from Twitter that this small business in the southwest had folded with the loss of 8 jobs. facebook.com/BrexitWrecksIt…
Cabinet Office: no-deal will lead to medicine shortages; disruptions to the food supply chain and panic buying; demonstrations and civil disorder that would stretch the police thin; and the risk that low-income groups will be hit by price rises on food, fuel and utilities...
Sky News also has an official document setting out the threats to borders, the economy, security, data, Northern Ireland and individuals. “Law and order challenges” in Northern Ireland, gaps in security and difficulty for Britons returning from abroad are among predictions...
This is a description of a country at war, but Britain's only enemy in this instance is itself.
Inflicting this suffering on the British people is #JihadiJohnson's actual government policy.
An unelected Prime Minister with no Commons majority waging war on his own people...
And what @lisanandy is saying is, the only way to prevent populists mopping up the votes of disillusioned voters is to emulate the populists - even though you know that their snake oil will only make things worse.
You can lead appeasers to history books but can't make them read.
Here's an alternative hypothesis. I noticed that all the people interviewed by the Guardian were old. Could it be that many young people have moved elsewhere because the town offers them no future? If so (and I'm not saying it is), Brexit will only make it worse.
Don't pity Leavers. They ignored our pleas for 33 months despite us telling them how Brexit will tear apart our families, our lives, our businesses; and despite their complete inability to produce a single practical benefit. They deserve to feel the full anguish of defeat.
In time, Leavers will realise that casting a vote to trash the United Kingdom probably wasn't their finest hour. The sensible thing they could do would be to keep quiet and hope eventually everyone forgets how they voted.
Let me clarify that a "Leaver" is not just someone who in 2016 voted Leave. A "Leaver" is someone who, even now after all we've learned since then, calls themselves a Leaver. Most people are neither Remainers nor Leavers. Those who are have chosen a side - it's a choice.
The unemployment statistics are calculated using an international standard, but successive UK governments have "gamed" the system by promoting the creation of insecure and underpaid jobs. This is euphemistically called "a flexible labour market".
The reality in the UK is massive poverty among even people in work. Children are going to school hungry. There is growing demand at food banks. People with jobs are living rough. This is not a labour market that delivers the needs of workers, and it has to change.
In my view it's not the messenger, it's the message - a message of hope in a voice of clear reason. No one wakes up in the morning and says "you know, I think I'll become a Lib Dem". But when everyone else is doubling down on bullshit, it could be the way to go.
All these organisations have cut UK jobs or moved ops to the EU die to Brexit. At the end of the thread I will provide a link details/evidence.
