What the hell is @jeremycorbyn doing?
Why is he enabling #Tory #Brexit?
Is this the final betrayal?
No, it isn't.
It's the predicted effect of decisions taken 2-3 years ago. All things considered, it's not as bad as it could have been (thanks to #StopBrexit crowd).

Thread.
1/n
To understand why, I need to outline 2 important mechanisms that most people, politicians and commentators seem to ignore, dismiss or simply don't get. They have different and somewhat opposite consequences, but are both decisive in the current & foreseeable predicaments.
2/n
1st and foremost: the biggest constraint that applies to political decision-making comes from the past decisions & policies.
It is a massive constraint.
Cameron COULD NOT convincingly campaign for #Remain, because his own policies CREATED the discontent channelled by #Leave.

Theresa May's machiavelic plans have to stop.

If she really believes her negotiations are that Strong and Stable, she should stop this embarrassing political circus and openly go for her No-Deal #Brexit plan, instead of sneakily engineering it.

We know that's your plan. 1/10
When she decided to put forward her support to #BradyAmendment, she knew it would be rejected by the EU negotiators.
It was even said yesterday before she decided to support it.
But it is a sneaky way to put forward a No-Deal #Brexit and later putting the blame on the EU. 2/10
The #Backstop was negotiated BY the UK to comply with UK's red lines:
✔ No hard border (#GoodFridayAgreement)
❌ No customs unions
❌ No single market
❌ No freedom of movement
The EU wanted a soft #Brexit. So no Backstop. 3/10

In 2016 I voted remain and was disappointed that the remain vote lost. I felt then as I do now that it was a vote against UK politicians, by people who felt disenfranchised, The referendum gave them an opportunity to kick ass.
Throughout the last 2 years we have heard people say. I have changed my mind. I want a #PeoplesVote because I did not understand what i was voting for! Well in part I agree.,I voted remain because being in the EU was all that I had known I could not see any problems.
Today I am reconsidering my position and indeed if another vote took place I would be tempted to vote leave. So why the sudden change of heart? Well I have started to watch and read the thoughts of people who have been far better informed on the European Union than I am.

A short thread on how we got to where we are:

#Tory Party 2015:

Cameron:
Those extremist Eurosceptics in my party need to be stopped.
I'll call a Referendum on Europe once and for all
I'm a winner, I've just won a GE no one expected & Scottish Indy campaign
I know how to win
#Tory Party 2016:

Leaver #Tories: Let's
Take Back Control
They need us more than they need us
Those German Car makers will get Merkel to give us a good deal
It'll be the easiest trade deal in the world

People: Ok - let's #Brexit

Cameron: I know I started this but I'm off
May:
I'm here.
Strong and Stable.

May:
There will be no General Election till 2020
We will be out of the Customs Union
We will not be under ECJ rule
I'll remove your rights to live & work in EU but I'll call it a good thing because Immigrants are bad

(1) Here's a short, intriguing story that is bound to be of interest to some. It involves @shahmiruk, @darrengrimes_, @chrisinsilico and @carolecadwalla. Also, among many others, @matthew_elliott, Dominic Cummings and @DanielJHannan.......
(2) It's a strange tale of how a collection of powerful, right wing, ideological #Tories took it upon themselves to employ, manage and manipulate the young, ambitious, and impressionable. Eventually using them toward a means to an end that has been decades in the making.......
(3) Wait? You know this story already? #VoteLeave set up a 'fake' company for a couple of students.... etc. etc. etc. Yes, that is correct. Except this wasn't the first time those behind the Vote Leave campaign had set up a fake firm in the name of young activists......

Meet #Israel's #Hasbara, which means #Propaganda, MSM Censorship Application👇🤨
This app came out about last year, and it is still on the iTunes store.
The app posts daily missions & TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SAY
#Trolls #Palestine #Gaza #BDS #JeremyCorbyn #JC4PM
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

How desperate is @Nigel_Farage to get into Parliament?
Well, he's speaking at the Bow Group function today which welcomes @realDonaldTrump - who won't be there! Their gift, a 'bust of Churchill' - let's hope it's not the dog - will be received by "a Republican Party official" 🤣
For those unaware of the provisional arm of the #Tories - the Bow Group - there's a little more here:

1) #TheresaMay has revealed herself to be an open borders corporatist and an #EU fifth columnist. She regards #Brexit as a problem to be neutralised, not a promise to be delivered.
2) For two years #TheresaMay has stalled us and watered down what we voted for until there is virtually nothing left of it. She has been deliberately deceitful and she has insulted the intelligence of millions of people.
3) Many people who voted to remain want #Brexit to happen because they’re fair-minded enough to respect the result of a democratic vote. They can see that for the government to renege on the result would be like punching a hole in the bottom of a boat.

As far as I am concerned, the time to convert Leavers is over. Thread. 1/
2/ Since the referendum we meticulously collated facts, enlisted people who know their stuff - from politicians over scientists, business owners, teachers and healthcare professionals.All walks of life, all nationalities represented in modern Britain
3/ We presented facts, figures, estimates, graphs, cartoons.... you name it. Even songs and breakfasts. We reached out and stayed patient when we were yelled at and called enemies of the people. Some people were assaulted.

1. Worst national leadership in my lifetime forcing through the most damaging, misguided & missold policy I can remember. Ideology & vested self interest replace statesmanship, soundbites replace sound judgement & autocracy subverts democracy.
#Brexit harms us irreparably #FBPE
2. A flawed Leave campaign based on lies, deceit, disingenuity & over simplification & a #Remain one fought w/o any positivity from the Govt & no real commitment from Labour, whose leader was virtually AWOL, did no justice to #Brexit complexity & betrayed our democratic process.
3. A mere 37% of voters/26.5% of the Ppl voted leave in a legally Non-Binding test of public opinion which has been corrupted, on the basis of an illegitimate political promise & interpreted as being the irrefutable Will of the Ppl.
The 1st is insufficient to claim the latter!
