Ross from Liverpool voted Leave in 2016, but he then realised that Vote Leave lied during their campaign. He is a Remainer Now and wants to opposition parties to work together to stop Boris Johnson.

I am going to say it. I voted Leave on the basis of the campaign to give the UK more money for the NHS. I was in hospital during the campaign and I saw how nurses and doctors genuinely believed this money would change their careers and the NHS.

That was a crock of sh*t.

How can anyone in parliament still think the Leave campaign DID NOT lie? Why are the Tories kicking up a fuss about Jeremy Corbyn turning a General Election down?

He did it because he can see through Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings, and their shoddy b*llocks. As for the “17.4m who voted Leave” sh*t, the still spew over 3 years later, is laughable. I, along with thousands, if not millions, don’t think like that now, following the lies that were fed to us.

I am no fan of Jeremy Corbyn, but what he, the SNP, the Greens, LibDems and others have done last night was superb. Stick it to Boris, who had the cheek to ask where Jeremy Corbyn was at the beginning of the debate, but where was Boris Johnson on his own motion!?!

As for the backstop, the DUP do not represent Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland voted Remain. The farmers, business leaders and even the Police Service of Northern Ireland have proven how a no-deal / hard border WILL destroy the country.

So, come on, Boris Johnson, what are your discussions with the EU proclaiming to be encouraging in working towards a deal, even though EU leaders have said are non existent!?

And come on Arlene Foster and DUP, what are your solutions to the backstop? You have done nothing but put down Leo Varadkar for over 3 years, but now all of a sudden, want to have discussions with him? This is a UK backstop! Not an Irish backstop, so YOU are responsible!

Lastly, I put to you Jeremy Corbyn, Ian Blackford, Caroline Lucas, Jo Swinson, Anna Soubry, etc. work together and deliver in bringing down PM Cummings and his puppets Boris, Jacob Rees-Mogg and Michael Gove.

People need to read up on how the EU has helped to stay alive and work over the past number of years. I have studied the EU and UK law, and I am a QC – we are far better in the EU.

I have overcome cancer, thrice, yet still receiving treatment.
I am a diabetic.
I have IBS.
I have had two heart attacks.
The EU and its free trade of medication keeps me alive.
No-deal Brexit WILL kill me.
I have already been told that by my GP!
I will be #DeathByBrexit.

And I won’t lie, suicide has crossed my mind because of this all.

So, for Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, et al. to say no-deal Brexit will NOT affect people, is quite surreal. It will.

Do not believe the Conservatives, aka the Brexit Party (aka #RussianDonations).🔷
