1/10: We are 12 days from legal #Brexit. What will happen on 31 Jan? What will it feel like on 1 Feb? More important, what will happen after that? In a nutshell, nothing will change & everything will change. And harder choices lie ahead. Thread of 10...
2/10: On 31 Jan BJ will declare #Brexit done & hail a brave new world. Big Ben may bong. Flags will come down. But on 1 Feb we will wake to an eerily familiar world. Until Dec 31 at least all rights & obligations of EU membership continue, though we will not be at the table..
3/10: Ministers will soon say that the fact the sky has not fallen in after we have ”got #Brexit done” proves “doomsters & gloomsters” wrong. They will try to shift public debate on to other things. But Brexit will still be there & will not be done..

THREAD | The #EU #Japan deal creates a trading zone comprising 635 million people and a third of global GDP. The agreement, which is also the first trade deal to include a specific commitment to the Paris Accords on climate change, will now come into force on 1 February 2019
Cheaper wine cheese for Japan, cheaper cars for the EU part of what the EU-Japan trade deal, now in force, means. The world's biggest such deal, it covers nearly a third of global GDP and 635 million people. ... It comes as a trade war rages between US and China continues
Why do you think @NissanUK @Nissan will want to stay in the UK in #Sunderland they won’t there is no motivation for them to do that including @Tesla

THREAD 😱| Aristocrats are anarchists': why the wealthy back Trump and #Brexit
Big money is supported by #Nationalism has been sold as ‘a war for the little guy’ but Brooke Harrington argues that it serves the interests of elites
We know that politics makes strange bedfellows, but few alliances are more surprising than the one linking the ultra-rich to ultra-nationalists. What could the wealthiest people in the world have in common with those upending politics in the name of the “forgotten man”?
As I have found in over a decade of research on global elites and tax havens, a shared political project unites them: both seek to weaken or dismantle international alliances that constrain them.

[Thread] #Europe just announced it would trigger the Dispute resolution mechanism #DRM of the #JCPOA. This is a big move but my guess is many people in #DC will wrongly assume this is an alignment to tougher US position on #Iran. /1 gov.uk/government/new…
On the contrary, the #EU maintains its balanced position btw #US and #Iran in order to keep door open for real negotiations on nuke and beyond. Let’s see why: /2
Last episode : despite the killing of Soleimani, #Iran stayed in the #JCPoA but continued its counter pressure policy on Jan. 5th through its “5th step” going against the nuke deal. The #US asked again #Europe to leave the #JCPoA. /3

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

#energytwitter New #Businessmodels for #EU prosumers! Local energy trading and self consumption in EU nations. @Proseu_Project @BrownSdc @BaumanInstitute
@https://proseu.eu/sites/default/files/Resources/PROSEU_D4.1_Business%20models%20for%20collective%20prosumers.pdf
Disappearing subsidies are driving #innovation across decentralised generation. New ways of trading and sharing local electricity are coming @NewAngliaEnergy @exeterepg @Comm1nrg @Regen_insight @EnergyREV_UK @EnergySysCat @NatureEnergyJnl @energycities @Bankfieldbecky
Extending the definition of 'self' consumption to neighbourhoods and communities can really improve the viability of decentralised generation. This #p2p model is one way, but we think that micro trades can make local energy projects too 'markets' focussed. I.e. not fun 😑

2. Imagine there's an attempt on your life, special forces and gendarmerie raid your business, state institutions acquire control of it, and you flee abroad to save your life.
3. Then you learn: PM #Borissov and General Prosecutor #Tsatsarov negotiate the sale of your assets to a #Turkish company (#Bulgaria-#Turkey).

#China's total exports in 2018 were $2.65 trillion, of which approximately $477 billion went to the #USA, $441 billion went to the #EU, and $157 billion to #Japan. Add #SouthKorea and #India, and that is over 50% of Chinese exports.
China's strong economy depends on the good will of a handful of governments. Gradually increasing tariffs (or economic sanctions) on Chinese imports in these and other like-minded countries and the EU, if linked to demands for: 1) human rights improvements in #HongKong, ...

What is really happening in #Sweden?

This amazing young lady is a must listen to on Climate Change, Mass Immigration and the Leftist Agenda. 1/4

Time to End the #EU for the good of all European citizens.

Original video -
"For the regular Swede the climate cult is all a bunch of privileged out of touch elitists"

We are all tired of Greta the Great. 2/4

#PollutionProblem not #ClimateChange. #Swexit🇸🇪
"For years & years the Swedish media & the establishment has warned about the rise in racism & white nationalism, for years & years the Swedish democrats and their voters have been labelled racist for talking about issues around mass immigration"

Sound familiar. 3/4

John Redwood: Continuing BBC bias
BBC fail to grasp why so many of us think there is bias in much of what they do.
They are so keen to run repeated anti-Brexit material.
They do not seem to know all the positives that led us to vote for #Brexit

John Redwood: BBC 1-sided approach is reflected in their use of so called experts who share similar economic, political & scientific world view.
The bias of 'experts' is never explored & never asked about their past failures in forecasting.

John Redwood: BBC rarely interview people who believe Brexit is a good economic opportunity to make us better off.
BBC never remember #Brexit supporters correctly predicted ERM disaster.
BBC will not explore Maastricht which gave us UK austerity.

#JohnKerry, chief negotiator of #Obama nuclear #IranDeal has uncomfortably close ongoing personal relationship with #Iranian Foreign Minister #JavadZarif, whose son was best man at Kerry's daughter's wedding.
Kerry's counterpart in 2015, Zarif was close to slain Gen #Soleimani
The 2009 wedding of #VanessaKerry to Dr. Brian Vala Nahed, of Iranian ancestry would be incidental were it not for dinner party hosted by #GeorgeSoros where #JohnKerry met best man #MahdiZarif, and father, #Iran's FM #JavadZarif

#JohnKerry raised eyebrows again, flirting with #LoganAct prohibitions regarding unauthorized American citizens dealing with foreign governments.
Kerry met repeatedly with Iran FM #JavadZarif in 2019 to discuss ways to keep the #Iran nuclear deal intact.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony
