Why is having an EU passport so great? ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ
A thread. #FBPE #RejoinEU #IAmEuropean

In March 2019 I moved to #Belgium.

The process involved:

No visa
No 90 day limit
No employment contract
No criminal record check
No min. income
No travel insurance
No arduous bureaucracy
I stayed in Brussels for the summer, but I didn't feel totally at home.

Then a friend suggested that I might prefer Lisbon...

So I left Brussels and moved to #Lisbon in early 2020.

With an EU passport, country-hopping like that was easy. No major planning needed.
Becoming resident in #Portugal was so simple.

I just turned up at the local municipality office and declared my wish to do so.

Oh yes, and paid the giant sum of โ‚ฌ15 for my residency certificate.

BOOM, five years temporary residency! โœ…

We won't Rejoin the EU until the UK has a fair voting system.

We already won the argument on Brexit. The majority voted for 2nd Referendum parties. It didn't matter.

If you want to #RejoinEU, get Labour to commit to making every vote count within 12 months of taking office.
So I understand why @Keir_Starmer can't commit to rejoining the EU because by definition it can't happen until we've had an election under PR.

But he CAN call out the ways it's hurting people, and he CAN stop supporting the lie that there is a success to be made of Brexit.
In fact, one of the motivations for this thread was the realisation that if the EU's ever going to take us back, we need to stop being such a circus fire of a country first.

A friend of mine is very disheartened whats going on+how some people even defend Putin+how he+those who disregard rules+democracy get away with it. In the UK or in ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ
โ€žWhy should we not give up and be like the selfish+theTyrants?โ€œ
This is how I responded to her.

2 /โ€žI totally understand your frustration.
Itโ€™s unbelievable what selfishness people have these days.

You are right and correct in all you say.

There is zero excuse for the brutality and mass murder that Putin is doing in Ukraine
3 /(and in several other countries of course) and how he corrupted Brexit and how he corrupted the UK government and how he gives billions of pounds to his oligarch friends in Knightsbridge while his own Russian people are dying of poverty and freezing to death in the wide areas

Labour's defeatists are out in force today, following Saint Keir's latest affirmation that #VoteLabourGetBrexit is true.

1: It is open to the UK to apply to #RejoinEU any time it likes. Nothing prevents KS campaigning on that.

2: The EU has a fixed interest in getting UK back.
It would represent an historical defeat of Euroscepticism and a 14% expansion of their market.

3: Politics is about leadership. With the consequences of Brexit so real now, it is feasible to argue for Rejoin more effectively than pre-2019.

4: Membership of EFTA precludes
membership of customs union - it's not allowed per EFTA treaty. EFTA unlikely to admit UK on basis that it wants to leave again to join EU. Not an easy sell.

5: If you can sell SM to voters, you have sold something less beneficial than EU membership. EU is easier because it

Thought for Follow Back Friday.

I'm still seeing people who are concerned about feasibility of #RejoinEU on the basis of misunderstanding the accession process.

1: it's a process. Not a request, to be accepted or rejected. Think less slamming door, more, please wipe your feet.
2: no applicant is ready to join when they apply.

Two whole stages, screening and negotiation, are devoted to identifying gaps with EU law, and closing them.

Accession can be thought of as the process of becoming admissible.
3: the first stage, the Copenhagen criteria and those in the TEU, is not an 11+. The EU likes to expand. Copenhagen was created to see if former Soviet satellites had really moved on. That they were democracies, able to withstand market forces, with ability to enforce EU law.

The @FT is reporting "Boris Johnson orders rapid fix to UK shortage of truck drivers"

So how quickly can we #RejoinEU?
@FT The sub heading read, "Prime minister said to have lost patience with bad press about fuel shortages and economic disruption"

You could read that to imply the PM is not as upset about shortages and disruption, as he is upset about the bad press about shortages and disruption.
This in turn begs the question, how much bad press does there need to be about dropping the ยฃ20 a week universal credit cut before our PM views bad press of that to be overwhelming, then change tack and insist the cuts are reversed ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

#LondonMayoralElection2021: Deadline day for wannabe London mayors | London | ITV News itv.com/news/london/20โ€ฆ
So - #LondonMayor elections are getting closer. If youโ€™re a Londoner, irrespective of tribal allegiances, this is an opportunity to make your point. Itโ€™s one of the few elections where each personโ€™s vote can really make the difference. #BrexitSucks #RejoinEU
@LondonLabour Iโ€™ll be voting for @SadiqKhan because ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ You really should make more of the #Brexit #RejoinEU issue - people who always vote @UKLabour will vote for Khan whatever - but, personally, Iโ€™d like to see a landslide personal vote for #Khan as a gesture of defiance!
