The Prime Mole admits that insufficient garlic in the UK’s ‘oven ready’ meal deal offer is likely to be unpalatable to the EU. “I prefer to think it will now taste more like an exciting bushtucker trial with choice cuts of Kangaroo and Camel.”

The PM continues: “We have not made progress with the EU. Let’s not say ‘No Deal’, but rather the ‘Australia Option’. I am making alternative arrangements as we speak - I have ordered Oz style PPE from a ‘mate’ and will now make preparations to enter the jungle on WTO terms...”
PM’s deal with the EU is even worse than Iceland’s.

I'll give you one example of how devastating #NoDeal will be. AstraZeneca is a British-Swedish pharmaceutical giant. It accounts for a full 1% of the UK's export GDP. Just AstraZeneca. On its own. (For reference, our *entire* fishing export GDP is a mere fraction of that.)

AstraZeneca has a huge plant in Macclesfield, a town to the south of Manchester. As of March last year, the site employed a total of around 3,500 people in a variety of operations including IT & science as well as the manufacturing arm, which accounts for around 900 workers.

Since March last year, the site has been shedding jobs like crazy. Why? Well, it might be because every batch of human medicine that is sold to the EU needs to be tested in the EU. We could do a deal to allow testing in the UK to continue, maybe under EU supervision.

#BrexitReality #Brexit #NoDeal

I have believed that since Johnson became PM, the intention has always been to route us to a "no deal", and a lot of the activity has been little more than token posturing and blame shifting.

This has been what a number of Johnson's sponsors 1/
have desired, and what ERG, Pharage etc have decided they want months AFTER the Brexit vote in 2016. This is why Pharage stood candidates down in many seats in the 2019 election, and why ERG have been largely quiet and in line.

This will of course be called an Australia type 2/
deal, but as Australia haven't a full arrangement it's just disingenuous wording, like the 350m for the NHS, "Get Brexit Done" etc.

Vote Leave's campaign material specifically talked of deals, and anything like this was labelled "project fear". If people say this is what they 3/

The EU is worried the UK being outside their rules, will have an "advantage" that it will be able to do more to help people and economic growth, and be too large a competition on their doorstep. Will hardcore remain campaigners now admit they are wrong?…
This is literally them saying that without the ability to control us, they won't want a deal with us because they think that will scare us into being controlled. Why would it? They are clearly worried about the threat of an independent UK. When we voted leave they said...
That the "red lines" meant all we could have was a simple FTA, and it would be one "off the shelf" - so why are they changing that now? They must know we are not going to agree to ECJ oversight, or continued rule taking (following), yet apparently the EU had no control over us?

Why did it take a political outsider to [finally] confront China?

#POTUS was an outsider can not be blackmail!
Because, he wasn't able to be comped, bought, or controlled.

#NoDealBrexit What does it mean?

....taken directly from the unredacted YellowHammer report.

"On day one of No Deal between 50-85% of HGVs travelling via the short Channel Straits may not be ready for French customs."

"HGVs could face maximum delays of 1.5-2.5 days before being able to cross the border."

JIT / just in time: dead in the water.

Perishables: dead / no longer fit for sale.

Livestock: too awful to think about.

Following on from our announcement that we'll be starting daily #PublicationOfTheDay📚 showcases, we'd like to present 5⃣ #Brexit-themed pieces from @FedTrust 💪

First up, how did #NoDeal become the bookies' favourite? @Brendandonn


Now that we know transition will end on December 31 after @BorisJohnson failed to meet the deadline to extend a few weeks ago, the question remains for London:

Will the financial sector get meaningful equivalence?…

As we remember #JohnHume and his valuable contributions to establishing peace in Ireland, we can't avoid the obvious:

"No version of Brexit avoids disruption for Northern Ireland and the peace process", writes @DrAndrewBlick for @FedTrust

We have again written to Security Minister @JBrokenshire to raise concerns about plans to replace EU security and police cooperation mechanisms with non-EU alternatives after 31 December 2020 if a deal cannot be reached 1/3
This was in response to his letter of 26 June in which he acknowledged “some mutual loss of capability”, but sought to provide assurances that the UK was prepared for a #NoDeal scenario 2/3…
Based on evidence we have heard, #NoDeal could have considerable impact on UK policing and public safety owing to a loss of access to EU databases and having to fall back on the 1957 EU Convention on #Extradition Find our letter here:… 3/3

I'm supporting this call in the FT from UK's important medium sized businesses for a close #EU trade deal.

This is not about #remainers or #leavers. We have left the #EU, and it is now incumbent on #Government to deliver for us ALL on their promise.

And we rely on this promise of an ambitious, wide-ranging & balanced economic EU partnership not #NoDeal and not and #AustraliaDeal and not #Canada either. The bespoke #ovenready deal with no economic downside which needs close alignment on standards 2/3
And here the letter in full and the 110 signatures of entrepreneurs, small and medium sized businesses and manufacturers

Now that the predatory “no-bid” OBOR contract with the Chinese has been declared illegal by Kenyan courts, other African nations being preyed upon and bribed by the CCP should default in a chain-reaction. #MakeChinaPay #OBOR #china #Africa #nodeal…
OBOR is the chinese Communist’s method of bribing local officials to take on crippling debt for overpriced projects that are then built by chinese slave labor. The chinese workers are brought into “work camps” and fed by the CCP. There is next to zero local positive GDP impact
And the CCP expects payments on the projects to be made in USD. It’s time for an African Jubilee on illegal chinese loans.

I know you have loads to worry about right now but here’s a #Brexit one to make a mental note of for future reference.

The #IrishSeaBorder & the NI #Protocol 🌊

We've a bit of a conundrum here & we need to spell it out.
Because it cd matter BIG TIME.

[sorry 🙄]
@MichelBarnier reiterated today, the EU is being crystal clear:
The UK needs to get a move on in prepping for customs procedures for goods entering NI from GB.

This means a ‘harder’ Irish Sea border.
But it is what it agreed to in the #Protocol.
But the UK is being somewhat blasé so far 🤷‍♂️

For it does mean barriers to trade within UK internal market.

We’re talking customs declarations, checks [no point in the former without the latter] & inevitable new controls, inc. products of animal origin (mad cow anyone?)🐮

1/6: Word on the street is that common sense is breaking out & government may be privately recognising that #Brexit negotiations now need to be postponed & transition extended beyond end December. This was always the right answer: here are 5 reasons why it is now doubly right...
2/6: Bandwidth. All UK & EU efforts should be devoted to tackling the massive #COVID crisis. Senior ministers & officials cannot have enough time now for the crucial business of deciding our long term relationship with #EU. And don’t forget #COP26 climate conference in Nov..
3/6: Practical. Travel suspensions are likely to last for months. Virtual negotiating is unsatisfactory. How do you read body language & do the private deal in the corridor? Also harder to coordinate large teams. And presumably key individuals will get ill along the way..

NEW: The UK publishes its approach to negotiating the future #UK - #EU relationship… UK already saying that it wants a "Canada", "Korea" or "Japan" style relationship and wants to be seen as a "sovereign equal". None of this likely to fly anywhere...
Here is the document itself with some key bits highlighted (thread)…
Point 5: "relationship between sovereign equals" is - although UK Gov entitled to say this - delusional. #UK much smaller than #EU and more exposed to EU economically than vice-versa. Sovereignty argument coming through strongly here.

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..

Some other ways to see #libdems £50B #RemainBonus
For #NoDeal the bonus would 🚀 to £170B over 5 years.

Brexit currency is Hospitals. Vote leave est⏬

#remainBonus is 143 Hospitals vs. #Borisdeal 6

Leave said £350m a week to NHS.
In fact they're Taking £200m a week from NHS
Then there's a "little bit" of a mandate problem since Cummings chalked up the entire Leave 2016 win to this reverse truth NHS Promise (verbatim below).

If you don't deliver what you promise the public to leave, does it look like you respect the result?

Do other promises from 2016 offset NHS "miscalculation"?

Sorry. None of the 2016 promises under #BorisDeal. ZERO

You can't really even call it #Brexit.

#BorisDeal sells you a car and hands over to you a banana skin.

Press down hard to Accelerate.

.@Conservatives is not able and CANNOT deliver a brexit that will work for anyone not matter what. With 3 Prime Ministers in and over 3 years, even once with a majority in Parliament, they have FAILED, FAILED & FAILED.
.@David_Cameron ordered brexit, made a promise of 'no ifs, no buts', yet when it arrived, he fled in a very shamelessly irresponsible manner, having not planned even for a pen to write out a single line of approach for brexit. You can't trust a word he said.
.@theresa_may took over claiming she IS "strong and stable" to care less because "no deal is better than..." but couldn't deliver #nodeal, good deal, bad deal or any deal whatsoever. At last, it was still the lies.
You can't trust a word she said.

Loads of noise re: #Brexit & N.Ireland right now. No need to add to that -
But worth pausing to listen to what those in the region most affected are saying.
👉 interim findings of TheBorderIntoBrexit @BorderBrexit study:
(only 6 pages)
Please 👀 & RT
@BorderBrexit They're results of an online survey (475 respondents) from both sides @BorderIrish, conducted by @QUBelfast @milena_komarova & me for @europe_icban.

It shows rising anxieties re: a hard border & #NoDeal are having tangible effects in decisions & actions in border region.

@BorderBrexit @BorderIrish @QUBelfast @milena_komarova @europe_icban The survey confirms #Brexit is already having an impact on life on both sides of the border.

Respondents report economic changes (e.g. job losses, business disinvestment, problems in labour recruitment) plus rising concerns about the #peace process & future stability.

I'm delighted that so much attention is now being paid to the issue of financial speculators and disaster capitalists making money out of #NoDeal. It's been frustrating to see so little attention being paid to this in Brexit debate. 1/
This is of course due to Rachel Johnson and Philip Hammond bringing it to the public awareness.
The BBC's Andrew Neil negates the idea by stating there's no evidence to support the claim. Financial markets and the news narratives they produce are always speculative... 2/
Since when do economists have to produce evidence to make future projections?
There are however clues. This is Christopher Chandler. He runs a company called Legatum Ltd. He made his fortune by travelling the world finding areas of political instability...3/

10 yrs ago an ex-stockbroker and his pals saw an opportunity.

They realised swathes of the population actually bought into the right wing tabloid nationalist narrative.

Some of them became the Gov't and had already pressured the new PM into including an EU referendum... 1/ the manifesto.

Over the next 5 years the tabloids promoted the stockbroker, who was not an MP on a daily basis. The rest of the media joined in.

The opportunity they had seen was a cash grab on a scale never seen before.

With the tabloid fans on board, waving flags 2/..
...furiously, filled with national pride and fear of immigration, it looked like the opportunity may just present itself.

Having just secured victory in the vote, the next move was to make sure that the Gov't failed to secure a deal.

They asked their pals to stand aside...3/
