Banff, Canada 27th June
At the TED Summit yesterday a group of TEDsters and TEDx-ers gathered to discuss the profound shock we feel about Brexit.
One idea suggested by a participant was to lobby our MPs as they will have to face their electorate with the terrible consequences of this fateful move.
If you are reading this and you care about the freedoms, peace and stability of Britain and Europe, and you have a vote in Britain, please write your version of this to your MP. You can find out who it is here
If you know any British person who thinks like me, send them a link to this post
I will never forget you helped me if you do

Subject: please stop us leaving the EU
I know you have been reported as being one of the MPs
who was in favour of leaving the European Union.
I implore you to change your mind.
If there is a vote in the House of Commons in which you are given the opportunity to do anything that could possibly stop it happening - please do so,
If there is a general election and you are a candidate for a party that wants to stay in I will vote for you
You have an opportunity to stop a national disaster and have a historic responsibility to your country, its people and those of Europe too. The freedoms of trade and movement that so almost all Britons treasure are at stake. The integrity of the United Kingdom and our security are in the balance.
The rising tide of racism and intolerance in the UK will only get worse as our economic plight worsens.
I realise it is a big political risk to be seen to be defying the will of the majority, but
the majority was tiny,
many people did not vote
and Britain's and Europe's liberty, prosperity and security are at stake
Many of those who voted to leave are angry with our and the EU's political systems. Leaving the EU will not do anything to fix these problems.
I have lived out of Britain for many years, and didn't get a vote, but have invested in Britain creating jobs, I have children whose freedoms are about to be lost and I care about the freedoms that the EU gives all Britons, and Europeans too.
This decision will change the course of history.
Please do the right thing and do what you can to keep us in, as we stand on the precipice of catastrophe.
