<thread>1. To reify means to take a process & make it static like an object whilst endowing that “object” with special powers.

Referendum voting was a flawed process in which Electoral Law was broken by domestic organisations. It was also flawed b/c of who was disenfranchised.
2. Following flawed process that was subject to criminal acts, the RESULT was reified.

Meaning, made like an object with magical powers.

The BBC, newspapers & major political parties cooperated in the reification of the result.

UKIP agenda treated as worth appeasing.
3. General Election 2017 called by Prime Minister in April 2017 dissolved the HMG that had sent a leaflet to households dissolved.

Any promise the previous government had made no longer bound the new Parliament.
4. The new Parliament chose to act in accordance with the path set by the previous Parliament, which passed into law the Article 50 Notification Act.

But that new law was not the decision.
Nor was the 2016 Referendum won narrowly by a campaign that broke Electoral Law.
5. The Court found in response to a judicial review by @A50Challenge that the Prime Minister alone took the decision — without Parliament — to notify.
Which fails to meet constitutional standards clarified in the Miller decision. crowdjustice.com/case/a50-chall…
6. Hard at work, @CommonsCMS has sought to understand the dynamics of digital advertising, illegal campaign spending, illegal campaign coordination & the role of military-grade psyops to suppress votes, elicit votes & normalise extremist views
7. Many of us have called for a Public Inquiry into the conduct, financing & mechanics of the Referendum process.

I myself submitted evidence (thus far ignore) when the first scrutiny started in summer 2016.

8. We will continue to call for this until the funding streams, & influence mechanisms are exposed in full.
For now, the route open is judicial reviews.@UKEUchallenge is up & running, & perhaps it is cooperating with @fairvoteuk
9. Whether the money flowing from USA or Russian sources can be kept out of 🇬🇧 democratic elections should be a matter of concern of all who want control for law-making close to home.

Equally, completing devolution is important. Eliminating FPTP.
10. As for the electoral fraud that produced a misleading reading of public sentiment in mid-2016; test it by asking the British people for their #FinalSay on whether, with all we now know, it’s Best for Britain to stay.

11. Please — if you’re part of a community that was told that the referendum vote would lead to magical change — please start sharing with people the information now widely available about

* the damage of Brexit to the NHS
* the reasons why manufacturers we cherish will leave
* The vast red tape moving outside a Customs Union & Single Market will add to business owners & managers

* The beauty of peace at last in Northern Ireland, & how feeely people move between north & south

13. When I overpaid a dealer for a secondhand car, I felt stupid & humiliated. But it passed.
Likewise when credit card interest rates skewered me b/c I didn’t notice the 0% period had ended.
Hindsight is the only perfect vision we humans ever have.

I admire brave @RemainerNow
14. And I disagree deeply with anyone who obstructs a rethink.

No one was sold the Brexit we’re seeing unfold.

No one consented to what @carolecadwalla calls “a car crash of illegality”
With @jedmarson in early 2017, I wrote a strategy to ask Parliament to:
PROTECT rights
ENSHRINE Parliament’s power - to apply a handbrake or a reverse gear if it became clear that it would be Best for Britain to stay @ decision-making table
BIND HMG to keep its power in check

Carole asks Luke: when did Trump cross your radar?

Luke: summer 2016. When Manafort became campaign manager whom Luke had met in Ukraine who was consultant transforming Yavchenko. What was he doing in Soviet Empire?? He was best connected political lobbist in area. Pre-Steele!
.@lukeharding1968 was investigating Deutsch Bank. DB kept lending even after Trump sued DB for losses arising from #FinCrisis. Dec 2016 Luke met Christopher Steele who said, Follow the Money, Follow the Sex #BylineFest @BylineFest
