@DPJHodges Just read your piece.

Difficult to cut thru all YOUR hate, scorn & vitriol, but I discern the kernel of an idea — that people want to be respected & *feel* Remainers don't.

That's actually a fair point, but don't you think you'd convey it better if you didn't hate-coat it?
@DPJHodges Is it actually *true* Remainers don't respect Leavers, or is it just folk like you putting that narrative out there?

a) you prime your readers' reaction by starting with the word *bitter* & using a string of pejoratives (As BITTER REMOANERS RANT... FRUITCAKES & LOONIES)

@DPJHodges Was Campbell being "bitter" when he mocked a 50p coin? Or was he merely thinking, like millions of us, that the inscription felt rather at odds with "17 million F*** Offs" proponents of the #Brexit ideology pride themselves on giving to the EU?

Was that just you editorialising?

You had more than 3 years to make sound business decisions and you are still blaming others for your failure.

I call this "EU mentality." #WhyYouGotBrexit
This blue check remainer with 99k followers replied with this then blocked me. No big deal, I get blocked a lot by leftists. So I'll use my right of reply here.

Smart businessmen & women didn't need "government guidance" to know what to do re #Brexit.

It's glorious watching anti-Brexit Brits/Europeans whine about it all. Especially when they should have known a 52-48 referendum win was likely to eventually become law.

They keep underestimating us.

Guests arriving for No 10 Brexit Party include Brexit Secretary @SteveBarclay, who’ll be toasting the demise of his own job.

Downing Street at pains to keep things relatively low key tonight it seems.

Britain’s flirtation with Europe began with two rejections in the 1960s. Even after the union was consummated, passion was soon spent, followed by arguments, acrimony and eventual divorce. Simon Jenkins tells the story of Brexit. Thread below #BrexitDay…
In 1973, Edward Heath was finally able to negotiate Britain “in”, though he dared not put it to a vote. “Membership” chiefly symbolised cultural broad-mindedness, town-twinning, student exchanges, Eurovision contests and the European Cup #BrexitDay… Image
The romance did not last. Opposition became organised, led on the right by Enoch Powell, who always saw Europe as an infringement of sovereignty. On the left, Europe was regarded as a capitalist cartel #BrexitDay… Image

A more integrated Europe, with lower barriers and borders between states, provides a higher platform for building workers’ unity than a Europe of competing national-capitalist blocs. I still believe that today, and I’ll still believe it tomorrow. #BrexitDay
I don’t accept that the pro-Remain left has to give up that element of our politics, or self-censor on the question. Acknowledging that there’s currently no social basis for winning a policy doesn’t require giving up on it.
Every anti-migrant, anti-worker reform the Tories attempt under the aegis of Brexit must be fought. “In or out, the fight goes on” was always a valid slogan on its own terms, but refusing to acknowledge #Brexit as a victory for the right is head-in-the-sand stuff.

An update from the the National Police Chiefs' Council on the situation after #BrexitDay:

"During the transition period we retain access to all European Union law enforcement tools and powers. The future negotiations will include security co-operation and we will work...
...with the government and EU in support of a deal that maintains our current capabilities and cooperation – in the interests of all UK and European citizens."

Regional police forces are managing protests and parties today and do not expect any disorder
On the Leave Means Leave party with Nigel Farage in Parliament Square, the Metropolitan Police would only say that a "proportionate policing plan is in place"

Protests have dwindled and become less angry since Boris Johnson became PM, so all eyes now on end of transition period

It's amazing how straight and honest politicians are willing to be now that there's literally no change of stopping Brexit. Hey ho, you get what you voted for. #NotMyBrexit #BrexitDay
Watch for a LOT more of this in the days and weeks ahead. In a month, the full horror of Brexit will be laid bare. In two, you won't find anything to back up the idea we didn't know all this before we left.

It’s a historic day here as the UK prepares to leave the European Union 🇬🇧🇪🇺

We’re marking #BrexitDay by looking at how key #Brexit Bills moved through Parliament, how you can get your voice heard about new laws, and how our teams have been working hard behind the scenes.
Leaving the EU means @UKParliament must pass new laws. Want to get involved?

👋Contact your MP or a Lord to ask them a question

🤓Come for a free tour of Parliament through your MP

🏫Book a workshop about Parliament for your school or community group
Brexit has been a focus for hundreds of people working behind the scenes at @UKParliament too.

Our Parliamentlive.TV team have streamed live @HouseofCommons and @UKHouseofLords video to a record number of viewers, and our photographers have captured images of the action. The House of Lords Chamber....The House of Commons Chambe...A ParliamentLive.TV control...

It’s a measure of just how successful the Brexit liars have been that today we lose vital rights, sacrifice countless jobs, hand over sovereignty of part of the UK and become the first nation in history to declare sanctions on itself and people are celebrating.
Happy Brexit day!
As for “Remoaner tears”: when your country’s humilated and shafted by liars so they can make a fortune; when millions who’ve contributed to this country are made 2nd class citizens; when the poor are to be made so much poorer, it would be weird not to feel something & shed a tear
Today is a day to think of those who’ll suffer particularly from Brexit. Please follow and support @the3million EU citizens in Europe, @BritishInEurope and, if you can, give the equivalent of 10 Brexit 50ps to @RefugeeAction. #BrexitDay…

Après des mois de doute, le Brexit est bel et bien effectif ce 31 janvier. L’un des hommes les plus riches du Royaume Uni, Jim Ratcliffe, en est un grand défenseur. Portrait du milliardaire de la pétrochimie et de son entreprise.
Le milliardaire britannique Jim Ratcliffe, propriétaire du club de foot de Nice et du club suisse Lausanne sport, est surtout le fondateur, président et actionnaire majoritaire du géant de la pétrochimie Ineos... installé à Monaco pour raisons fiscales.… Image
En 2014 Ineos annonce 746 millions € d’investissement dans la prospection de gaz de schiste au Royaume-Uni. Ratcliffe crée un blason pour Ineos, «Veni emi vici» («Je suis venu, j’ai acheté, j’ai vaincu»). On pourrait ajouter «j’ai pollué allègrement».… Image

Saw a comment earlier and it's inspired another monster plagiarism thread - this time about Brexit and a fucked up Xmas. Buckle up kids...

With apologies to Jem Finer, Shane MacGowan and the beautiful Kirsty McColl, this is 'BJ's Song (A Fairytale of Brexit)'
Twas Brexit Eve babe
In the drunk tank
A young man said to me
They took my future.
And then he sang a song
An ode to joy, or two
I turned my face away
And dreamed about EU.
We're the unlucky ones
Remain was ten to one
I've got a feeling
This year is not for EU
So stuff your Brexit
I hate you, Boris
I see a better time
When all our dreams come true.

برطانیہ، قبل از وقت انتخابات کے حوالے سے تھریڈ

برطانیہ میں ایک بار پھر عام انتخابات کی آمد آمد ہے۔
اسی سال 12 دسمبر کو قبل از وقت انتخابات کا انعقاد کیا جائے گا اور عوام اپنا رائے حق دہی استعمال کرے گی.

#GeneralElection19 #brexitriots #Urdu @BBCUrdu
برطانیہ میں انتخابات ہر پانچ سال بعد منعقد کئے جاتے ہیں لیکن آنے والے انتخابات، تقریبا چار سال میں تیسرے انتخابات ہوں گے۔
ان انتخابات میں ووٹرز 650 حلقوں سے ممبرز
آف پارلیمنٹ کا چنائو کریں گے۔

#GeneralElection19 #urdu
حالیہ انتخابات میں بریگزیٹ ایشو کو سب سے اہم تصور کیا جارہا ہے اور بظاہر ووٹرز اپنا حق رائے دہی بریگزیٹ کے بارے میں ہی سیاسی جماعتوں کے موقف کو دیکھتے ہوئے استعمال کریں گے۔
لیکن کچھ حلقے نیشنل ہیلتھ سروس سے متعلق معاملات کو بھی اہم تصور کررہے ہیں۔

The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart

Far-called, our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire:
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds without the Law—

It's another beautiful #swotsunday morning, we wish everyone a wonderful #PalmSunday & #GameofThrones weekend.

Today, we will examine the impact of post #Brexit on the United Kingdom.

#SundayThoughts #SundayMorning #BrexitDay #BrexitDelay #brexitdirectaction #Brexitcast
The word #Brexit is simply an acronym for Britain exit. The United Kingdom consist of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The UK became a member of the European Union (EU) in 1973, but wanted to backout after only two years of its membership.
However, the majority of those that participated in the referendum voted for the UK to remain as a member of the union.

The recent agitation for Brexit led to another voting process taking place across the UK.

Tommy Robinson DOES NOT represent most Brexit voters. I spoke to several Brexit supporters in Parliament Square who are absolutely disgusted to be sharing an event with his lot. #BrexitDay
The biggest threat to Leave voters is the racists who claim to speak for them.
We've heard nothing about investing in jobs and transport in the North or Wales since the Brexit vote because the media keeps focusing on Nigel and Tommy.
If you want evidence of just how insulting it is that these people claim to speak for millions across the country who are really struggling.... Look at how 'much' they care whether life gets harder for ordinary working people.

What we are learning about Britain on #BrexitDay -and why I am worried -a short thread
Since the referendum, we've had several bits of research which suggest that Britain is becoming more polarised and divided
Most recently, work by @NatCen and @whatukthinks has shown that our Brexit identities as Remainers or Leavers are strong, perhaps stronger even than our 'traditional' party political identities

Twice I have voted against the PM’s deal. Much of it concerns me but in particular the backstop.

After a lot of thought, wrestling with my conscience and talking to good friends and colleagues I have reluctantly decided to vote for the deal today.

Here is why 👇🏻
2/ The backstop is there for a political end.

If agreement on the UK’s future relationship with the EU cannot be reached then the backstop kicks in.

Therefore the next stage of negotiations is even more important.
3/ Given there won’t be legal changes to the backstop the one change is the PM committing that she will not negotiate the future relationship with the EU.

This means a new PM with a new team will negotiate which gives me more confidence that we will avoid being in the backstop.

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).
