Heroine of the eleventh hour

“The vote for Brexit shone a light on problems that successive Governments have consistently failed to address – communities left behind, inequality, the immigration system, economic stagnation, stretched public services, crisis in housing and social care.

“Britain is one of the most unequal societies in Europe, where success increasingly depends on where you live, which school or university you went to, who your parents are, and who they know.

“With 42% of UK wealth owned by 10% of households, it is no wonder there is a breakdown of trust in our institutions and politicians.

“But is Brexit the solution?” Gina Miller, Remain Plus for a Brighter Future

“What we have ended up with is division, anxiety and unhappiness. The options facing
us are so poorly defined that clarity is desperately and urgently needed. There must be a better way.

“Time is running out, but it is not too late. It is only right, morally and democratically, that the people of the UK are given a vote on a future we will have to face together.

“We believe this is the only way to clear away the confusion, draw a line under Brexit and get back to dealing with the issues facing our country.  The only way to end the chaos.”

END THE CHAOS

INFORMED CONSENT

“The public…need guarantees on NHS staffing, access to medicines and the safety of the NHS from any US-UK trade deal, before they can be satisfied that… Brexit will do no harm to our NHS and social care.”

These are the warnings shared by ten professional health organisations with all Members of Parliament about the impact of Brexit on the most unifying of our nation’s modern institutions, the one that heals more divides than football coming home, more than the monarchy, more than the Lottery, TV soap operas or Dad’s Army, the only one attending most of us from birth to death, the one that gives health to national identity:

  • ending freedom of movement from the EU could deprive the NHS of essential staff
  • any new customs checks or barriers for medicines and equipment could have very serious implications for care and push up costs, and
  • any economic damage from Brexit would make it difficult to deliver an NHS funding boost

Nine MPs from six parties, including two GPs, a surgeon and two former Health Ministers, have united to ask the Prime Minister asking for urgent action to protect the NHS from Brexit:

“At its 70th birthday, the NHS faces – in Brexit – perhaps the greatest threat to its survival in its history.

I’m an NHS doctor who works in the A&E department. I voted Leave in the EU referendum, but now I’ve joined the campaign for a people’s vote on the final terms of the Brexit deal.

“The consent given by the public for Brexit was not informed consent. In medicine – and surely to any reasonable person – consent which is not informed is considered invalid, and this mandates a vote on the Brexit deal.”

The New Cosette Marching to Keep Britain in Europe by MHPhotography

MARCH ON 23 JUNE

because if “parliament votes for a hard Brexit, then a people’s vote is the last hope of saving us all.”

“because I think the no-Brexit position could win.”

“But please God, let there be no other referendum ever again: never forget the near-mortal damage done to Britain by an irrevocable vote on an unfathomably complex question. 

“Instead, trust in general elections to throw the bastards out when they get things wrong.” 

Polly Toynbee, The Guardian

March to save our country’s future and restore rational democratic government.

This moment defines us all.
It’s our last chance to take back control.

SAVE THEIR FUTURE

STOP BREXIT

Among the most eloquent and intelligent campaigners to stop Brexit ruining our country are some of the generation that will suffer most, the young. I’ve heard them speak. They are inspiring.

We should be helping them save their futures, not conniving in yet another historic betrayal of youth, condemned by the mistakes of their parents and grandparents.

Please share links to the campaigning group Our Future, Our Choice. Even Liking their Facebook page will help a little. Fund them if you can afford it.

Look how young Caravaggio’s angel is; he’s a boy, no older than the victim of parental ideology tethered on the sacrificial slab. The young are looking after each other, protecting themselves from older generations, making up for our mistakes, doing our work.
Help them, before it’s too late.
