Pointing that the US is the root cause of the trade war hints that China’s unfair trade practices should have been quietly accepted. It so terribly easy for liberal Europeans to point finger to one direction while keeping conveniently quiet of anything “uncomfortable”.
The above makes one wonder if liberal Europeans are actually relieved that Trump believes in unilateralism instead of engaging the European allies (as many observers say he should). Europeans can keep on dreaming of the lost globalisation in their convenient bubble. #IamEuropean
What I am crying after here is for the Europeans to start to show some spine, start to defend their true values instead of just conveniently enjoying them.

Advice on #Settled Status for #EU27Citizens:
1/ If you have not done so yet, register with the HO email notification service - click link on this page gov.uk/settled-status…. #WATON #IamEuropean @yEUrRights
2/ The scheme seems to be OPEN NOW to EUCitizens that have been here for more than 5 years! We should mass apply - they want to test the system, so test we shall.
3/ I had no communication from the HO on this at all, unlike previous emails I received regarding Settled Status, so they seem to try and keep this low key. We need to document our experiences and copy in the relevant campaign groups as well as our EU representatives! 🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺🇪🇺

🇬🇧My parents came to the UK as German Jewish refugees from a so-called 'civilised' country.🇩🇪

NEVER EVER assume you won't, in some post #Brexit nightmare, find yourself forced to flee the UK , jobless, hungry, desperate, finding yourself in a refugee camp/stuck on some border!
Theresa May is minded to scrap the Human Rights Act post #Brexit
For those unaware of what the Human Rights Act actually is:
Check this out: legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1998/42/…
Read it through carefully.
Hitler also scrapped rights for Jews, Gays, Disabled, Roma & some sects.

🇬🇧The gradual erosion of everything that makes up a civil society has been happening for many years.🇬🇧
The demonization of 'the other' is fuelled by the press, on TV & via our OWN MPs.
EU CITIZENS are:
queue-jumpers,
citizens of nowhere
immigrants
migrants
swarms
floods

Warning, this is a monologue on my current thoughts on #Brexit.

I hate Brexit, #IamEuropean, yet I think the UK needs to exit with a no deal.

If you're curious about why, please Read on. I'll mention #IsaacAsimov 😀
Sadly, I believe the UK needs to exit the EU without a #brexit deal.

That 30-40% of its population that has post-Imperial delusions need a rude awakening of what the 21st century world is like.

Then, the UK may rejoin the EU in 10-15 years time.
The sad part of this #nodeal #brexit is the people that end up dying unnecessarily because of the Brexiteers pipe dreams.

A reminder that @The3Million and @BritishInEurope are not an amorphous mass of anonymous people that can simply 'go home' or 'come back'.

Every single #OneOfThe5Million has their own story.

Their family.
Their dreams.
Their rights.
Their identity.

Their life.

"Europe is more than cheap air fares, the Single Market or Customs Union. [...] It is an idea, a set of values we share with fellow human beings: that we must always come together to work – and play, and hope – rather than live in suspicion and hate." @eddieizzard
