  • Andy's Story - Why I started Remainer Now

    I’m not an activist. But on 15th December 2017, I became one in my spare time, when I was driven to start a twitter account called @RemainerNow.

     My first tweet read: “There is a lot of evidence that public opinion is turning against #Brexit - many people who voted #leave in #EUREF regret their decision now the facts are clear. This account has been set up to share stories of those who are #Remainernow & have been brave enough to say!”

    I did not know what to expect when I started it. I did not know if anyone would even pick up on it. However, in the first few weeks it grew rapidly. I gained new followers at a rate of about 100 a day, many of who were active in liking, retweeting and replying to stories I shared of those EU Referendum Leave voters who had boldly come out and said that, now they have seen the way Brexit is going and what it may mean for the UK, they are a #Remainernow.
