JOIN THE DEBATE
Only open debate can enlighten the nation and promote new thinking. The Convention is about people gathering to shape Britain’s future.
(1/2) Exactly a year ago a group of high ranking German leaders from industry and public life wrote a letter to the Times, with a reassuring message that whatever happens, Europe is always home.
Whether you are regretful, relieved or resigned, today is marks an historic moment in our relationship with Europe. 2,000 years of interaction on a cultural, social and historical level generates roots that are nonetheless mercifully beyond the reach of ephemeral politics.

At The Convention on Tuesday 2/2 @soniapurnell on Boris Johnson: someone who doesn't care, who doesn't believe in consensus, someone who distorts the truth, who's not fit to represent our country... #NeverAgain
At The Convention on Tuesday 1/2 @soniapurnell on Boris Johnson: a disrupter who likes the sound of chaos, who thinks he's above the rules, someone with a poor record as London mayor... #NeverAgain
“We need another vote (...) because it’s democracy. That vote has to be held to account (...). We need to understand what’s happened with dark money so it doesn’t happen again. We have to have more democracy, not less” @maryftz of @openDemocracy at The Convention #NeverAgain
Many really important points were made @The_Convention_ last night and I encourage you all to watch it. But I’d like to stress one thing @IanDunt said and thank him for saying this: “the key to fixing this thing, to standing up to these people, is you stand up for immigrants”. 1/

Now on Group discussion. Subversion by social media.
Seriously freaky short film beforehand showing the fake info ads ☹
Social media campaigns are honing in on an emotive issue, with the aim that you become so angry that you don't want to engage in the process at all...leaving a smaller group of people making the decisions and therefore easier to influence @jonathansebire
