First and foremost – GET YOUR EU FACTS STRAIGHT! University of Liverpool Professor of EU Law, Michael Dougan’s videos are a great way of doing this. Click HERE to watch the one he made pre-referendum, which gives a run-down of how the EU works, and click HERE to watch the one he made after the result.
GET YOURSELF ON TWITTER
Bit of a necessary evil if you want to reach the widest audience. Far more people are getting their information from Twitter than they are from Facebook. It takes a bit of getting used to and a while to build up a following, but it is the most direct way of contacting the decision makers directly and getting your voice heard. Also flinging the occasional well-worded insult May’s way when the urge strikes is pretty satisfying.
Spread the word about and go along to ‘The Convention – Brexit and the Political Crash’ in London in May. Tickets and more info here.

Play ‘What went wrong?’
Have some fun and wind up David Davis and the Dept for Exiting the European Union via their website. Just complete their ‘what went wrong‘ box at the bottom of the page. Let your creativity run wild!
