A LIGHT IN DARK PLACES
But the very last thing to fly out of the box, as Pandora sat there crying, was not as ugly as the others. In fact it was beautiful.
It was Hope.
THE FIGHT FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE CONTINUES
And so it has come to pass that Boris Johnson’s cabal of far-right morons are now in power, and will be for the next 5 years.
…OR WILL THEY?
As Scotland now has an unarguable mandate for #indyref2, which there is little doubt the Yes camp will win, and with Loyalists taking more seats in Northern Ireland for the first time in history, the "Border Poll" mandated by the Good Friday Agreement will, in all likelihood, go ahead. And a surprising number of Unionists, feeling betrayed by England, will join with the Nationalists to ensure the reunification of Ireland.
So that's it.
This is how the UK dies.
No more "Great Britain".
Our nationality will no longer be British.
Our flag will no longer be the Union Flag.
No more British Army.
No more TeamGB.
Our country will be ripped asunder into its constituent parts, leaving only England and Wales (or "Wangland") in its wake.
And all this will happen before 2024.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland might be a lost cause, but that doesn’t mean England and Wales has to be separated from our brothers and sisters across Europe for all time.
As we have made very, very clear over the last few years, Brexit is a terrible idea. It will make each and every citizen of the UK who isn’t a millionaire poorer. It’ll reduce life expectancy, cripple our already overstretched NHS, strike a mortal blow against British industry and irreparably damage our standing and influence in the world. As time goes on, this will become more and more obvious to everyone.
One day, the case for #Rejoin will be irrefutable. Let’s do everything in our power to make that day come as soon as possible.
1. DON'T GIVE UP!
This is of critical importance. We can’t let the liars and the charlatans get away with it.
Challenge them at every turn. Make it clear that we’re here, we’re a million strong and we’re not going anywhere.
By all means, take some time off over Christmas, hold your loved ones dear, and then let’s regroup in the new year.
2. JOIN THE LABOUR PARTY
That fight starts with getting Labour behind us. That unlocks the unions, farming and industry in a way that has been denied us up until this point. How long do you think Johnson’s premiership can survive a general strike…?
Make no mistake: the “other side” will be joining Labour in droves to ensure another ineffective, unelectable, Brexit-loving charlatan gets in. We need to head them off at the pass. Please, join or rejoin Labour today. Make sure you get a say. The future of the nation may well depend on it.
3. SIGN THE PETITION FOR ASSOCIATE CITIZENSHIP OF THE EU
Our good friend Jolyon Maugham QC has set up a petition resurrecting the idea of associate citizenship of the EU for all who want it (ie. half of the UK)
CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION!
4. SUPPORT THE #PROJECTHOPE INITIATIVE
We’re not faceless. We’re not nameless. We’re not giving up.

If you haven’t met us, there’s a good chance you’ve seen us speak. We have all spent the last few years tirelessly campaigning for the UK to stay in the EU. And despite all the setbacks and vitriol, we’re all in agreement: we’re in this for the long haul and we’re NEVER going to stop holding the powers that be to account.
One of our first tasks in the New Year is to set up a website that gives British journalists a grade based on their accuracy, impartiality, integrity and empathy.
Help us SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.
