A week ago, only 300 of the 3.7 million EU citizens in the UK were registered to vote in the European elections on May 23. That's because they have to fill in another form as well as registering to vote normally - we help you do that online, quickly...
Tom Brake MPI urge all #EU citizens living in the UK to make sure they have registered to vote in the #EUelections2019 by 7th May.
You may lose all voting rights after #Brexit - so use your vote while you have it! #the3millionVote #thistimeimvoting #StopBrexit
Get on the electoral register so you can vote in elections and referendums.
Tom Brake MP#EU elections are a huge opportunity for pro-EU voters to be heard. @LibDems are ready! Register to vote today: bit.ly/2uXwukz.
Never has it been more critical that we have a strong pro-EU core in Brussels, representing Britain’s best interests.
The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is 'the will of the people'. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now.
Tom Brake MPMay’s cliff-edge ultimatum succeeds in sending hundreds of thousands to #RevokeA50 petition, as the scale of her catastrophe becomes impossible to hide. There are NO good Brexits. #StopBrexit
Tom Brake MPWe haven’t even left the EU and the value of UK businesses has already dropped by 16%.
This will only get worse and is nothing like what the Leave campaign promised.
The public deserve to have a say now the facts are clear. #PeoplesVote #ExitfromBrexit
Tom Brake MPFor decades politicians & the media have failed to promote the huge benefits of our EU membership. The PM's deal will make us poorer, making it harder to solve the real challenges facing the UK. We need a #PeoplesVote with a choice to stay in the #EU.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders says car sales faced a "perfect storm" of uncertainty over Brexit and supply shortages.
Tom Brake MPAlong with lacklustre business confidence, a slowing service sector and rising household debt, this major fall in car sales is yet further evidence of the deeply damaging effect #Brexit is having on our economy.

Tom Brake and nurses show support for People’s Vote
Tom Brake MPSince the Brexit vote there has been a fall in the number of EU nurses applying to work in the UK -- from 10,000 in 2016 to just 900 in 2018.
These are people that our NHS, and hospitals like St Helier, rely on and it’s a loss we just cannot afford.
Leave.EU played a decisive role in the British public’s historic vote to leave the EU on June 23rd. The campaign is remaining active throughout the UK.
Tom Brake MPArron Banks & Leave.EU facing investigation by NCA into possible offences during Brexit campaign. It's about time we knew about any dirty tricks or foreign money that may have affected the Referendum campaign. The public didn't vote for this. We need a #PeoplesVote
Tom Brake MPArron Banks refusing on @AndrewMarr9 to say which company really funded the £8 million that went into the Leave.EU campaign.
Banks trying his best to smear all and sundry.
Roll on the National Crime Agency investigation!
How can we deny the #peoplesvote ?
Tom Brake MPThe Govt will plough on with #brexit even if there was significant law-breaking by Banks and Leave.EU because their campaign was not the official Leave campaign.
So says Minister @JBrokenshire
This is outrageous. The stuff of dictatorships.
Join the Liberal Democrats marching for our future
Tom Brake MPOne week until the March to #StopBrexit!
This is our chance to tell @theresa_may that people deserve the #FinalSay to #ExitFromBrexit.

The move from the UK to Amsterdam is aimed at avoiding potential tax issues in the wake of Brexit.
Tom Brake MPYet another major company no longer sees #Brexit Britain as a suitable home for business. Whether you voted leave or remain no one voted for fewer jobs & less money in their pocket. That's why people need a #finalsayonthedeal & a chance to #exitfrombrexit
LCC’s campaign to tackle close passing. Drop a pin, Sign the petition, Get a free sticker.
Tom Brake MPThe Stay Wider of the Rider petition calls for an end to close passing, when motorists oertake a cyclist without providing a safe amount of space. I experience this almost every time I cycle. Take a look at these videos that expose risks of close passing
We should be moving towards a world with fewer borders; tearing down walls instead of building them
Tom Brake MPDecades of scapegoating and misinformation have created a culture of mistrust towards the EU, labelling them as “other”. We should be moving towards a world with fewer borders; tearing down walls instead of building them. Take a look at my article here
