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.
#BrexitDay
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).

Pop in your postcode, and see what the EU has done for you... #BrexitDay #EUDay

Give it a whirl. You may be surprised... For instance, there have been 10 EU-funded projects and schemes over the years within a mile of my house. Stuff I would never have known about.
Before you say "it's our money", the EU through its regional development fund ensures that a good proportion of the funding goes to the most deprived areas - exactly the sort of places that successive UK Governments have turned their backs on.

1. Theresa May claims she has won 'legally binding' changes to her deal
2. But it's not what she promised she would get
3. MPs look like they'll still vote against

We all know now that #VoteLeaveBrokeTheLaw. We all know that Arron Banks has been referred to the NCA for investigation, after @MetPoliceUK declined to look into the @ElectoralCommUK's evidence. MPs are "calling for a pause" in #Brexit.

Unless EU-27 agree to an extension of the two-year #Article50 period, the UK leaves the EU on 29th March 2019. Theresa May clearly stil hopes for some kind of deal that will keep the City of London happy enough with #Brexit: but #NoDealBrexit is a very real possibility. /2
#NoDealBrexit is disastrous, but the UK is woefully unprepared for the massive changes to ensue with any kind of #Brexit: the Tories have treated the Brexit negotiations as a game in which they held all the cards, & in consequence have failed utterly to make any progress. /3

1. Dear @carolinenokes MP and @10DowningStreet.
I started to work in the UK (for @fusionenergy) on the 14/04/2014 as Senior Electrical Designer, I am now an Electrical systems design engineer.
A "#HighSkilled migrant" as they say, but not eligible to the #SettledStatus. [THREAD]
2. I will have my 5 eligible years on the 14/04/2019.
Or 16 days after #BrexitDay.
Maybe it is worth to mention that I arrived on the 01/12/2013. So I have actually my 5 years, but I have no proof.
I was joining an ex-partner to look for work in the UK, my name was not on bills.
3. Yesterday, like other fellow @The3Million, I read the following article.
"Employers will be expected to check whether EU nationals have the right to work in the UK if there is a #NoDeal #Brexit, even though it will be almost impossible to assess this".

All medias, when they talk about @The3Million EU citizens living in the UK and #Brexit, they talk about families and how they can become very vulnerable.
But my story is not covered by this situation and is not unique.
We're vulnerable without a family to support us. Thread 1/20
I came in the UK in Oct 2013 to follow a boyfriend that I had by that time and because I wanted to leave France.
I thought that would be a great opportunity as lots of french young professionals want to go to the UK. That was my chance. 2/20
I was an Electrical Engineer in France with an equivalent of a Bachelor of Science in Electrical engineering. I did not know the English language very well and most important, the British Standards. But I did my 50% of my Bachelor in Germany so I thought I'll be alright. 3/20
