Tonight's Brexit music is for every #OneOfThe5Million - @BritishInEurope & @The3Million. #FinalSayForAll

I wish you well
I tell you that it can't be helped
I told you it can't be helped
Oh but it can be helped

Grant Lee Buffalo - Wish You Well
The Dragon down south may blow some smoke
Even the Jester is drummin' up votes
They talk about building morale and hope
They're just building bigotry a better rope
Incidentally, 25 years on the album this is from, Fuzzy by Grant Lee Buffalo, remains one of my favourite of all time. Their second, Mighty Joe Moon is on that list too. Thank goodness @GrantLeeTweets had the brainwave to plug that Acoustic 12-String into a big Marshall Stack!

A reminder that @The3Million and @BritishInEurope are not an amorphous mass of anonymous people that can simply 'go home' or 'come back'.

Every single #OneOfThe5Million has their own story.

Their family.
Their dreams.
Their rights.
Their identity.

Their life.

After last night’s Beehive in Brussels I spent today on #EUcitizensChampion: awareness activity to give people a glimpse of who #The5Million of us @The3Million & @BritishInEurope are. Big thanks to the nearly 500 of you who contributed to my “secret survey” so I could do this! 1/
It might not look all that impressive once stuck together, but this is us ❤️ It takes a long time to write hundreds of post-its and I couldn’t have managed it at all without the help of @mccanntb — thanks so much! 2/
A big thank you also goes to @GuitarMoog, @Dogtrouser, and of course @nickynoo007 for helping with placing them near the Palais de Justice and talking to passers by about what we were doing as part of #OneOfThe5Million today. 3/

I am #OneOfThe5Million and #BrexitIsPersonal. Almost 30 yrs ago my then wife and I packed up our belongings and moved with our six months old baby, to a village in the Gaeltach at the edge of Europe in the far west of Ireland. 1/12
Two more babies followed and all three became bi-lingual in Irish and English. We left that beautiful splinter of rock thrust into the Atlantic 11 yrs later for another beautiful place, Guéthary in the French Basque country 2/12
As our children progressed through maternelle, primaire, college and Lycée they became French for practical purposes. Over the next 15 yrs the children left for university in the UK and I was delighted I had been able to give them such a culturally rich upbringing. 3/11

I’m still in Brussels and today it’s all about raising awareness for the serious threats still faced by @The3Million & @BritishInEurope. That’s FIVE million people! And to all of us #BrexitIsPersonal. Please join me in telling your story here today as #OneOfThe5Million 1/
So I am #OneOfThe5Million and to me #BrexitIsPersonal not only because of the immediate impact it has on my rights—I have to apply to stay in my own home—but also because of the significant personal cost standing up to it has had. 2/
Please join in on Twitter throughout the day using #BrexitIsPersonal & #OneOfThe5Million ... And watch this space later to learn what I’m up to. 3/3
