When have we/the media stopped asking the difficult questions and are we damaging our cause?
A thread…..1/ #WATON#GE2019
2/ The #GE2019 is fought over big issues aside from Brexit. It’s a great tactic, if you don’t forget Brexit…..which is what is happening. We are living a re-hash of 2017. The B-word is reduced to slogans on the right and #Cakeism on the left. Best avoided by the leaders.
3/ It is almost as if they are not pressed for detail because we cynically believe we already know the answer they will give. But that just deprives us of ways to make our case.

3/ All this with 4 months left until summer recess. In September it will ve too late for anything but either hard or no Brexit. We have not heard any substantial suggestions from Gov for a few weeks now, and we have stopped being demanding because...>
