Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The most important surge came when WikiLeaks began tweeting the hashtag. The tweet itself was cautious, pointing out that the leak "could be a 4chan practical joke," but it was retweeted over 2,000 times, compared with over 600 times for Posobiec.

2,000% return ("click bait") in 48 hrs or so (cost basis -> 0) looks like a good deal by comparison to Jim Messina's "private citizen" meddling&interference operation.
May Hires Jim Messina for U.K. Conservative Election Team 24 Apr . a/o 26 Apr
Poll: Majority of Brits oppose unilateral guarantee for EU citizens' rights

He's had 10 more days to retrench Tory support (at what public and private costs?) ahead of the "snap"election 8 June. a/o 5 May

Local elections 2017: Labour and Ukip wiped out while Tories gain over 550 new seats
May taking 'nothing for granted' amid gains, while Corbyn calls Labour results 'mixed'

DISCLAIMER: Until today, I'd no idea total number of seats in UK parliament (< 60M eligible voters) were greater than US combined chambers of congress (< 200M eligible voters). That's a pretty funny fact of the "democratic process" inherited from the motherland.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
