When was Farage at CPAC last year?

What announcement did he make following it?

What did he create before the EU elections?

Are those who paid the £25 Members or supporters?

What is the difference & why is this relevant?

What is the name of his party?

What purpose would it serve after Brexit is delivered?

When & how many times has Farage met with Boris or his team since returning from CPAC?

Think logically, if you were to take power in the UK would it be via the Conservatives with May neutralised & Boris popular or

try to engineer an election while simultaneously attempt to get the entire Conservative party to step aside?

Why would Boris distance himself from Farage if a pact was already in place (if necessary)?

Are the left able to come together & form a coalition in an election?

Brexit affects everyone and everything. Hear our #R4OR /thread

Employers and employees- you are all on the same side on this one. You all need a healthy economy and stable political environment to thrive. The Single Market is the biggest trading bloc in the world and its cold outside believe me #R4OR #StopBrexit
The care sector is already fragile as hurt EU27 citizens have headed for the door to somewhere they are wanted. Even the government says Brexit will damage the care of our elderly and vulnerable #R4OR #StopTheCoup

Anybody interested in #India's #Economy should take 30 minutes time out and listen to this interview. There is both sound, credible analysis of the problem AND an entirely logical policy prescription. #AltSarkar @PIB_Altsarkar @fek_le @Vidyut…
A quick summary:
1. Our present problems can be traced back directly to the stupid, stupid move on Nov 8 2016 when 86% of the means of settlement of dues was taken out. Damn that #Demonetisation. We in #AltSarkar have to acknowledge it even if its defenders do not.
2. India's problem is a demand side problem. People have neither the free disposable cash now nor the confidence in their future to take a loan to go out and buy stuff.
3. You don't deal with a demand drop off by propping up supply side factors. #AltSarkar believes in logic

It's now painfully clear and beyond any doubt: 1. That the sunny, cost-free, easy-access uplands, posited by the Brexit cult, are mendacious fantasy. 2. That the ever-growing costs, downsides and consequences of Brexit are very real and intellectually indisputable.
We may tire of confronting the undisputed opportunity costs* of #Brexit #CatastrophUK (c.£130bn so far, rising at c.£1.2bn weekly) but our *GDP *Currency *Property Values *Stock Market *Govt Borrowing *Ongoing #Brexodus (ref: @uk_domain_names) combine to drag the UK backwards.

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

Tonight I go to bed knowing more clearly than I have ever known before how different the view of everything is through the eyes of an EU citizen. I don't see jubilation or hope. All I see are countless messages of despair because of the additional uncertainty. #BrexitChaos 1/
And that isn't specific to me - even a quick glance at FB tells me that. This doesn't mean we would have supported the deal - of course not. But it says a lot about how very different the experiences of EU citizens in the UK and Britons in UK have been over the past 935 days. 2/
The fact that someone got to call us EU citizens "bloodsuckers" on live TV earlier today without any challenge or questioning really did not help. Neither does the fact that campaigners now places their hope in a #PeoplesVote that would not include people like me... 3/

We'll be live tweeting from BBC Any Questions for the next hour or so.
It's been a busy week on the Brexit front, so it promises to be interesting.
Panel includes:
@Andrew_Adonis @Juergen_Maier @JennyChapman & Wokingham MP @johnredwood
#bbcaq #anyquestions
The question on everyone's lips with #brexit "was this really what you envisaged you were going to get"
Once again they say there was a very strong instruction to Parliament - the minority was a tiny percentage - this can't be seen as a strong instruction.

So, what will @theresa_may do at 5?

* Resign as PM?

Seems unlikely. She's just sat through hours of questioning in the Commons. Why put yourself through it just to throw the towel in?

* Resign as leader?

Takes control of leadership election timing but very high risk strategy.
Danger is that some people do stand against her and she is damaged beyond repair in the first round.

* Offer a #PeoplesVote?

She heard the Commons. She knows that her deal won't get through. Is this her solution? Would be incredible politics and would stop leadership talk.
Reason? There are not enough ERG fanatics to get to 58 for the trigger.

* Just Battle On

Most likely option is that she just explains that there is nothing else on the table and so you'd better stop moaning and get on with it.

Waiting for the start of the Brexit What's The Deal event at Bracknell Open Learning Centre organised by Berkshire for Europe.
We'll be live tweeting the event, so watch this space.
If you are at the event, use the hashtag #WhatsTheDealBracknell on social media.
It promises to be an interesting evening, particularly with the news this afternoon that Railways Minister @JoJohnsonUK has resigned from the government and spoken out in favour of a #PeoplesVote on Brexit rather than the choice of no deal or a bad deal.
Our speakers this evening are:
Bracknell MP @DrPhillipLeeMP who was one of the early MPs to resign their ministerial post over Brexit (for the right reasons)

@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite Let’s think. 1) leavers haven’t come up with a plan. 2) we were told by the PM that we were “citizens of nowhere” and that our views didn’t count 3) a narrow victory was taken as a landslide 1/?
@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite 4) a one question advisory poll became a mandate for state control of migration, pulling out of the single market, euratom, open skies, europol, the customs union, and dozens more, adding thousands of bureaucrats to the state payroll 2/?
@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite 5) the government tried to assume absolute power to decide without parliament 6) parliament then supinely voted to avoid scrutiny of future trade bills 7) 3 million EU citizens were described as “bargaining chips” 3/?
