Feels like history now! but @thatginamiller inspired me, I returned from Vienna, joined @LibDems, fought #Richmond, helped @sarahjolney1 WIN
Answer? not in the past! @ProfBrianCox memorably stated "Time travels relentlessly in one direction, FORWARDS" We need ideas for the FUTURE!
UK priorities & crucial areas under-resourced as HMG throws time & borrowed money at Mission Impossible! while #exitfrombrexit looms larger
If UK pays OTT to achieve a lesser deal than we have now? that would raise profound questions about our political/economic skills? & sanity?
We are ALL indebted to @davidallengreen for his persistent & incisive inputs into a HUGE debate that is VITAL for the future of ALL in UK!
Time will surely come, quite soon, when UK #leave voters realise they were badly 'had'. Their reaction will not be pretty! #exitfrombrexit
Now totally clear that the tide has turned on Brexit, as stated months ago! We now need politicos to catch up & implement what voters want!
Thanks @ProfBrianCox this simmering thread is now totally electrified! UK does NOT want what is happening. Politicos MUST seize this moment!
Totally clear we're "living in a powder keg and giving off sparks" re Brexit. It must be stopped asap, to save UK from economic disaster!
Clearly #Leavers were misled & know that! And are getting angrier! #ProgressiveAlliance could solve that! If we have the balls to go there!
Final thought 4 @mikegalsworthy Record 54 'likes' agree with me that you are something special! Closing tonight with that & 71k impressions!
I welcome you into the Hall of Fame of sincere sober people fighting an insane Brexit that will soon be over!
We are on a major roll to achieve an #ExitFromBrexit thanks to @LibDems!
20k engagements in first hour of 6nov suggests we have ALL struck a chord in the fight against an irrational Brexit. Massive thanks to all!
Recent engagement has been superb! because this issue is SO HUGE! Unless #ProgressiveAlliance can find #ExitFromBrexit UK is in BIG trouble!
100,000 engagements in a 24 hour period suggests to me that people on this thread have a serious point to make about Brexit! Thank you all!
you are all very much wanted on this #exitfrombrexit thread!
Saluting supporters of a cross-party #ProgressiveAlliance to avert a catastrophic & insane hard brexit, being in no-one's interests. So why?
One law Parliament will never repeal is the "Law of Unintended Consequences." If it fails to find an #exitfrombrexit - those will be huge!
Thanks @faisalislam for 'keeping it real' in the face of so much fake news! Am also urging @cbicarolyn to step up CBI's reality check to HMG
Huge credit to @ChukaUmunna for his courage, clarity & consistency in demystifying the damage that Brexit would cause to the UK economy!
HMG lacks 'Will Resource Intelligence Time' to do anything as complex/divisive/disruptive as 'Negotiated Brexit'. It's IN v OUT, always was!
PLease review UK's deepening balance of payments deficit and ask how Brexit would help? ons.gov.uk/economy/nation…
UK export performance has been truly woeful of late, despite weaker £! Consider how this might move if we imperil £250 billion pa to EU27?
May I please request clarification from @vincecable & @tombrakemp that @LibDems stand against ANY FORM of Brexit. I joined on this premise!
Focus soon turns to next stages of Great (not!) Repeal Bill & 2017 Budget due 22nov17, not unrelated issues! The Budget will begin to show us just how much the former (flawed Brexit strategy, as argued above) is costing UK. So now prepping 4 budget & writing to MP @LucyFrazerUK!
Shan't be posting further on this now full thread, but will continue to deal with comments lodged by some of the many who have viewed it. So I close by thanking everyone for their mutual support, notably to those of us working unpaid to help stop the national disaster of Brexit.

While UK spirals down & out of control, gripped by self-inflicted Brexit-fixated inward-looking dirty-selfish politics, Major Parties talk to themselves with NO results, so far. Yet, every passing day brings new reasons to put Brexit to a #PeoplesVote with the option to #Remain.
#TriggerIsComing to force a #PeoplesVote on #Brexit, with an option to #endthechaos and #Remain. Many MPs are daily more restive over the lack of a truly #MeaningfulVote - another #May mistake that will come back to haunt #Blukip, after ALL their Lies & wastage of time AND money.
The wheels are falling off 'any Brexit' with each passing revelation of FACTUAL REALITY. Anyone who can't see that (regardless of how they voted) is not keeping up! The doubters in Parliament will be swelling in numbers, by the minute.

Leavers were misled. Fact-based #BrexitRejection drives many to Remain. #TriggerIsComing. #PeoplesVote will follow.
Life is a hard journey. We ALL have to admit IT, when wrong! Only alternative is digging in, ever deeper, to that wrongful position (aka 'bad decision bias'). I say to Leavers, now, take another fresh look and rethink! This is ALL our futures! #TriggerIsComing #PeoplesVote soon!
51.9% v 48.1% in an ADVISORY referendum, held more than 2 years ago, is clearly NOT today's #WOTP, so a #PeoplesVote is NOW a MUST HAVE, re any final EU destination - incl. #Remain. Will that happen? YES! #TriggerIsComing, soon.

IF we do leave the EU, big IF, I predict that there'll be a marked tendency for Remainers to Leave the UK, and for Leavers to Remain, stuck here. Losers perpetually banking on Winners to just suck it up, and blithely bail them out, just #May be disappointed. There, I've said it!
Close relatives who departed these shores in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, 10's felt they perceived a better future 'elsewhere'. Am beginning to get it, at last! I #May be a slow learner, or just late to awake to the now revealed realities of the UK, and its 'true prospects'.
Of course, there's an easy alternative. Put the latest EU options (realistic ones only, please, including #Remain!) to a new #PeoplesVote - That should inform us as to the current #WillOfThePeople. That'd be a great start! Better late than never!

We are now witnessing the final death throes not just of the May Government, but of the @Conservatives as we have come to know them: self-serving, self-obsessed, self-promoting, self-seeking, self-ish, self-destroying, Good riddance!
UK's electorate, especially our Youth, will severely punish @Conservatives at EVERY future ballot opportunity, Ad Infinitum! This process started with #GE2017 - but if it were re-run as #GE2018, they'd be right OUT! We demand a #PeoplesVote to stop this insanity and halt #Brexit!
In essence: The UK has kidded itself to believe that economic gravity can be defied. It can't. For people to be seriously misled in 2016 is bad enough; but for Blukip Mayhem & Co to NOW be leading them towards disaster in 2017/18, absent any #PeoplesVote, is totally unforgivable!

Don't believe that Blukip Mayhem & Co realise just HOW far adrift they have become from public opinion NOW! Of course, they could put ANY deal? Big IF? to a #peoplesvote, and test the will of the people to which they love SO much to defer? Democracy? Do they really believe in it?
Hard to escape the view that 'so called' UK Democracy has been completely hijacked by Blukip Mayhem & Co. There's NO mandate to trash our economy in the way now daily unfolding. It's totally risible to suggest that we'll go global from the self-inflicted wreckage of what we had.
Triple hit from #Brexodus; deferred, reduced or cancelled #BusinessInvestment and collapsing consumer #Confidence look likely to impact UK #GDP when #Q2 stats are known. Will Blukip Mayhem & Co take any notice? Or just keep racking up yet more debt, as UK #TaxTake recedes!

Backed by 70% of voters (#LocalElections2018) our two major parties aim to take UK down to the minor leagues of sub-#G20 growth, supported by NO detailed plans as to the costs, complexities & consequences of such bizarre recklessness. Not just insane, but amazingly short-sighted!
2. Is this a case of who blinks first? Surely I, and fellow well-informed remainers, are not in exclusive possession of key economic facts and trends? Con/Lab MUST have these too? Maybe everyone should check the latest @guardian piece by @williamnhutton!
3. People who think Brexit (in any form!) would be easy, painless or cost-free are very sorely deluded! Maybe the 70% who just voted Con/Lab in #LocalElections2018 should have been asking 'that question' of their wannabe councillors? before parting with their votes? Too late now!
