The point that we keep missing is that Cons, Lab, etc no longer care about the referendum result. They are claiming overwhelming support for Brexit on the results of the 2017 GE when over 80% of those who voted, voted for parties which had Brexit as a part of their manifesto. 1/6
Similarly, the BBC are reporting only pro-brexit stories and, for example, relegating coverage of AIQ/CA to the tech pages on their website because 80%+ expressed their preference for Brexit to go ahead. That’s how manifestos work. 2/6
In the UK, there is only one way for an ordinary person to express their political wishes and that is by voting. In the GE, that resulted in most of us voting for pro-brexit parties in the hope of trying to get the tories out to end austerity. Boy was that a foolish move! 3/6
So when the BBC ignore CA/AIQ etc as irrelevant it’s because we voted so overwhelmingly for Brexit in 2017. We could have proof of far more interference in the referendum in far more bizarre ways and it would make no difference. 4/6
That is why they say we are a small number of remainers (less than 20%) whining and moaning and not getting behind the 80% plus pro-brexit juggernaut that both main parties, and UKIP and DUP, are committed to delivering. 5/6
Remember this and consider whether your vote will be counted in support of Brexit at the English Local Elections in May. #ABTV 6/6
