Sign up for #FinalSay today.
Let's look before we Leave.
We need change, but this is not the change we are looking for
#LookB4WeLeave

Better safe than sorry.
Do you want this future?
It's in the hands of the People.
Please help put the brakes on Brexit
change.org/p/theresa-may-… I miss summer already.
Crisp chill in the air.
The washing didn't dry on the line this afternoon.
The nights are drawing in.
But there's a different feeling to the usual turn of the seasons.
A dread, building these past years.
Brexit is coming & it will break #OurNHS

Last year, when I was really suicidal because #BrexitReality has unbalanced me, I made this petition to David Davis asking for a FinalSay.
you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/meas…

I'm grateful to everyone who signed up, but it made no difference & I nearly gave up.
Rumble strips are a godsend. I'm OK but I must fight those feelings of helplessness every single day.
#BrexitIsPersonal

Then there was another #FinalSay petition on @HocPetitions petition that, despite @DExEUgov trying to reject it, went to (great) debate in December 2017.

So tired of all this Brexshit.
I wish I could find the generator of the Someone Else's Problem field that has bewitched people
#TheyAreLyingToUs

Next they will ask us to #RespectTheResult.
I will, when it is a respectable result. Not this #Brexitshambles
#Fairvotenow #FinalSay Brexit won't just hit the UK.
Many of the places it will affect the worst did not choose it.
I get Brexiters don't care about me, but is everyone really OK with the fact that this will seriously impact on all our neighbours too?
We're not just shitting our own bed in protest here

I'm supposed to be in #AltUK for a couple of weeks.
I'm losing my hope along with my sleep and my sight.
Quite exhausted.

Trump is Brexit
Putin is Brexit
Johnson is Brexit
Farage is Brexit

Just met this cute little one in the bathroom. Have installed it in the shed because, rats aside, I am a softy for Nature.
Its offspring will worship me as a God.

(Or maybe it will be dead from shock before dawn) (Should probably explain that this is the downstairs toilet which is a glorified drafty outhouse)

Is there an official list of all the times the Leave campaign lied cheated / broke the law? It's a busy day but I could have a go at this as I get time... (thread)
#CrookedVoteLeave 11 MAY 2016 Electoral Commission struck off 11 pro-Brexit campaign "Grassroots Out" groups from their official register of EU Referendum campaigners after it was discovered that they shared the same address, Lysander House in Bristol (= Arron Banks)

Remember when you believed @JeremyCorbyn & @UKLabour might be playing a long game & come out in the end to #StopBrexit with the Ultimate People Power move by supporting the right to a #PeoplesVote?
Me too.
*sigh*

Our elected representatives are permitting a path that denies our young people any chance at fair future.

Big #BrexitConcerns about the 5 serious potential threats to the availability and affordability of food in the United Kingdom after Brexit.

At @CityREDI's #BrexitRegionalImpact workshop to "discuss the likely impact of Brexit on the West Midlands economy & agree on the urgent actions that need to be taken in the crucial months ahead"

Will business take a stand for #PeoplesVote or roll over?

birmingham.ac.uk/schools/busine… It's hard to see how Brexit can be seen as anything but a disaster for the West Midlands, but I will listen to everyone and report back.

Opening question.
What does a good Brexit look like?
Lord Hestltine: "One where the decision to leave is overturned by the government and it doesn't happen."
👏 👏 👏
#VCBrexitDebate I got to ask a question!
May possibly have lost my temper a bit with Richard Tice from Leave Means Leave.
Proper snake oil salesman that one.
Lord Heseltine is a star though.
Anand Menon knows his stuff but isn't very stuffy for a Prof.
@JamesMcGrory from Open Britain was cool
