- #Peatbill didn't even bother to provide properly for allocation of all the assessments required by EU law. Talk about giving #falsehope to those impacted by the successive failures! U simply can't stick ur head in the bog when it comes to EU law - at least u shouldn't but 😱👇
What @reginadoherty described as "a foolish legal action" tinyurl.com/2p8k59xr added insult to injury to our National Courts who rightly upheld the challenge . The #PeatBill added further insult and disregard to the EU Court of Justice's rulings.

Not ‘qualified’ EUcitizens (simply not working/studying) expected to hold health insurance despite having lawful & legal access to NHS through residency. Rule not appropriately communicated at any point & result of improper implementation of EUDirect europestreet.news/why-you-need-t… 3/11

The @Telegraph is wrong to say MEPs represent a zombie Parliament.

They are chosen by you, the electorate, and work (yes, work) for a fully active and responsive legislature. #EPfactsUK Thread.
