A #Brexit extension is “almost inevitable”
- Nicola Sturgeon to me earlier @FRANCE24

Scottish First Minister wants Labour’s Corbyn to
“get off the Brexit fence & put his weight behind [...] something that would break the deadlock”
#Scotland #SNP #F24
2/ Sturgeon on Theresa May:

“she should change her approach... 1st thing she should do is request an extension to #Article50

“My preference then would go back to the people in another referendum- bcs people have so much more information now than in 2016”#Brexit #F24
Nicola Sturgeon accuses both Theresa May & Jeremy Corbyn of
“probably trying to run the clock down as much as [each other] in all this.”

1/ Following the defeat of the #BrexitDeal in the UK Parliament we have written to the @eucopresident Donald Tusk today demanding the ring-fencing of the #citizensrights of EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope under Article 50.
2/ We have highlighted to the @eucopresident how weak the unilateral #citizensrights 'guarantees' given by the Prime Minister to EU citizens in the UK are.
3/ We have also highlighted that unilateral 'guarantees' will remove all #citizensrights for EU citizens in the UK & @BritishInEurope which are based on bilateral agreement between the EU & the UK

ALL of the Neoliberal Globalist orgs strongly support the EU.

Citizens’ Rights Myth Buster

The UK Govt, like @WalkerWorcester here, and UK press in general keep on repeating that the #citizensrights of the EU citizens in the UK have been guaranteed even in case of a #NoDealBrexit.

This myth buster will look these claims in more detail.
Myth 1: #citizensrights in case of no-deal are guaranteed
@Stuart_McDonald busting this myth here: “a unilateral promise from the Prime Minister can be here today & gone tomorrow. [...] it doesn't bind her successors [...] their rights can be repealed at a blink of an eye"
Myth 2: It is a registration process
Often repeated in the press that Settled Status is a registration process:
@Dr_PhilippaW busting this myth: “There should not be an application. Even a registration would suggest something different. An application implies you can be refused"

The only deal is Theresa May's #BrexitDeal.
So just #HowWillBrexitBenefitMe? (& the UK?)
What about Labour's 6 tests for the deal?

No 1. Does it ensure a strong and collaborative future relationship with the EU?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE
#RevokeA50 #PeoplesVote
What about Labour's 6 tests for the Brexit deal?
No. 2. Does it deliver the “exact same benefits” as we currently have as members of the Single Market and Customs Union?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE
What about Labour's 6 tests for the Brexit deal?
No. 3. Does it ensure the fair management of migration in the interests of the economy and communities?
No. 4. Does it defend rights and protections and prevent a race to the bottom?

Absolutely not! - UNDELIVERABLE

#Brexit #thread
1/ If you don’t follow Brexit every day, here’s some advice. Let go of any illusions that this drama is about trade protocols, residency rights or the status of the Irish border. Brexit is the story of a proud former imperial power undergoing a mid-life crisis
2/ The rest of the world is left listening to Britain’s therapy session as they drone on about their ex-spouse, unable to see, admit or address their own flaws.
3/ The promise of Brexit was that it would make Britain feel big again. “Britain is special,” the Brexiteers assured British voters, who cast their ballots accordingly. But Brexit has proven that for the first time in modern history, Britain is small.

This thread is entirely 2018 analysis and as unbiased as I can make it. Collated as I find a lack of signposts to the raw analysis in the media and political discourse, which are high on spin low on facts. Hopefully this will be helpful.

#BrexitChaos - thread: need for definitions:

#NoDeal #nodealbrexit means crashing out: no arrangements with the #EU or other member states, no transition period. Means losing all existing trade deals & years of global negociations
#WTO ≠ trade deal (look it up!) 1/9
@theresa_may #WithdrawalAgreement is the framework for a future #UK #EU future relationship. Allows for an orderly #Brexit with transition period, but leaves many issues to resolve, trade deals and regulations to negotiate, which will take many years and be costly. No "dividend"!
It is possible to #StopBrexit and #Remain. This means staying in the #EU with all current benefits, reciprocal rights and protections, free trade and movement for goods, services and people within the EU. To do this, Govt must #RevokeA50 (Article 50=notice given to #Leave 3/9

1/ #citizensrights Fact Check:
Vote Leave promised EU citizens that they will be treated no less favourably than they are at present.

Now that we have a #BrexitDeal with the EU in form of the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) it is time to check whether Vote Leave told the truth.
2/ Free movement for British citizens living in the EU
The WA only protects rights for British in Europe in their country of residence, their continuing free movement rights have been taken away.
3/ Lifelong right of return for EU citizens in the UK
The WA only insists that rights may lapse after an absence of a minimum of 5 years, and the UK has chosen to use this minimum. Other member states may well do the same.

We'll be live tweeting from BBC Any Questions for the next hour or so.
It's been a busy week on the Brexit front, so it promises to be interesting.
Panel includes:
@Andrew_Adonis @Juergen_Maier @JennyChapman & Wokingham MP @johnredwood
#bbcaq #anyquestions
The question on everyone's lips with #brexit "was this really what you envisaged you were going to get"
Once again they say there was a very strong instruction to Parliament - the minority was a tiny percentage - this can't be seen as a strong instruction.

So, what will @theresa_may do at 5?

* Resign as PM?

Seems unlikely. She's just sat through hours of questioning in the Commons. Why put yourself through it just to throw the towel in?

* Resign as leader?

Takes control of leadership election timing but very high risk strategy.
Danger is that some people do stand against her and she is damaged beyond repair in the first round.

* Offer a #PeoplesVote?

She heard the Commons. She knows that her deal won't get through. Is this her solution? Would be incredible politics and would stop leadership talk.
Reason? There are not enough ERG fanatics to get to 58 for the trigger.

* Just Battle On

Most likely option is that she just explains that there is nothing else on the table and so you'd better stop moaning and get on with it.

Since news of a possible #BrexitDeal first broke I have received 347 emails and messages so far from fellow EU citizens. Completely unprecedented! The anxiety is palpable. I suspect it’s a combination of knowing that, no matter what happens, many of us are #AlreadyNotFine, 1/
coupled with general Brexit-related anxieties. For me the messages primarily drive home that I really do not know how we are ever meant to come back from this. A deal won’t simple lead to a flicking of a switch. The genies released form their bottles won’t simply disappear. 2/
Of course no-deal would be more catastrophic, but one way or the other this will not be over at the end of next March no matter what happens next. Certainly not for #The5Million. 3/

The Tories and their media mates are dodging the question of what happens when May's botched #Brexit deal gets voted out by The Commons.
This Thread is on why the Brexit deal vote is essentially a vote of confidence and why a defeat should mean a General Election.
(1 of 6)
The key concept here is 'confidence'. A government stays in power by having the confidence of the House of Commons. Meaning that it has a majority to pass its business. Losing a vote of confidence means they've 'lost' the House and by convention a General Election is due
(2 of 6)
The #Brexit deal vote is for all intents and purposes a vote of confidence. It is what the Tories have said themselves their government is all about achieving. It's been their excuse for neglect of other areas of policy, like social care. It is a "big set piece" vote.

If you're happy with a #BrexitDeal that makes us less sovereign than EU countries, fine. Otherwise: People's Vote.
(Credit: @stealthmusicUK)
For the reasons explained below, a sovereignty-stealing #BrexitDeal is the only deal we're going to see. I spent the weekend making the above video because economic, social and political ruin is always nicer with a good beat. 👍🏿
I'll take it! 😄
