#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

It is not reasonable for the Yes movement to suppose the the 'right time' for a new referendum is something which might simply emerge from conditions determined almost entirely by those most bitterly opposed to the very idea. #Referendum2018 #DissolveTheUnion
The 'right time'for a new referendum is something which must be created by the Yes movement. The practicalities of this task remain the same regardless of when the referendum is declared or held. #Referendum2018 #DissolveTheUnion
Only the circumstances in which the referendum is declared and held change over time. It is reasonable to suppose that, while those circumstances are determined by the British state, they will only become less favourable. #Referendum2018 #DissolveTheUnion

FLASH 🔴 Pour l'ambassadeur du #Kenya au #Burundi, Kenneth N. Vitisia, "avec le #Referendum2018, les Burundais ont exprimé leur volonté de se choisir leur destin. Chacun a eu l'opportunité de dire exactement ce qu'il en pensait, ce qui était une très bonne chose"
Amb. Kenneth N. Vitisia (@KenyaEmbBurundi): "Avec ce #Referendum2018, je suis également heureux d'avoir constaté que la campagne électorale a été plutôt animée, que Rwasa a fait campagne pour le Non, ce qui est une indication que le #Burundi a progressé en termes de démocratie"
🔴 Kenneth N. Vistisia, Ambassadeur de #Kenya à #Burundi: "Même après le #Referendum2018, ceux qui pourraient avoir des griefs peuvent venir les présenter dans le dialogue inter-burundais mené par l'#EAC sous @WMkapa. Je crois que le besoin de violence a disparu depuis longtemps"

Indefinitely postponing a new independence referendum IS NOT a consequence-free option. It is, in fact, PRECISELY what British Nationalists want. We know this because it is EXACTLY what they have been campaigning for. #Referendum2018
British Nationalists hope that we will postpone a new referendum beyond the 2021 Scottish Parliament elections. Their intention is to mount a massive propaganda campaign with the aim of reducing support for the SNP. #Referendum2018
British Nationalists know that even a small drop in the SNP vote will create an opportunity for a 'Grand Coalition' of British parties to seize control of the Scottish Parliament. #Referendum2018
