If a parliament elected to represent our interests, and whose sovereignty is at the heart of our constitution, chooses not to ensure we avoid a #NoDealBrexit the British Medical Association calls "catastrophic" for the NHS, our democracy is broken beyond repair.
The first responsibility of Parliament/Government is to protect its citizens.
Parliament is actively abandoning its responsibility to protect the country from the effects of No Deal.

ALL of the Neoliberal Globalist orgs strongly support the EU.

#MayMustGo May works for the Globalists, she is a TRAITOR to the UK

1/ Astonishing moment in House of Commons #BrexitDebate. After @sajidjavid acknowledging that immigration was one of the main drivers for Leave vote @MikeGapes points to the Vote Leave leaflet lies about 75 million Turks heading for the UK
2/ In reply to the question of @MikeGapes in regards to the Vote Leave immigration lies, @sajidjavid admits: "The [Vote Leave] information was wrong" to then continue "[...] the [immigration] bill is the key step to ending free movement once and for all"
3/ So in short, the Home Secretary is driving an immigration policy based on the perceived need of 'controlling immigration' based on the lies, which he admits, of Vote Leave. Truly astonishing.

This thread is entirely 2018 analysis and as unbiased as I can make it. Collated as I find a lack of signposts to the raw analysis in the media and political discourse, which are high on spin low on facts. Hopefully this will be helpful.

I've been frustrated at the lack of info available on what #Brexit might really mean. Media is full of shrill, non-informative partisan rhetoric. This is the 1st of many info threads I will do on Brexit. I use 2017/18 data, unless the info is particularly insightful. EDUCATION:

In the "BBC or ITV" #BrexitDebate debate, it's worth considering what's missing from the picture: somebody for the "no Brexit" option i.e. the third path still open to the UK.

"No deal" doesn't need representation, because it's the default, the strawberry jam splat on the ground
when we've jumped out of the EU plane and failed to concoct any sort of deal parachute on the way down. It's always in the background.

But Theresa May herself acknowledges that "no Brexit" AKA remain is certainly still a live possibility, even though not one she would support.
Because at the moment, all we have is Theresa May's dead as a dodo deal that will never pass in Parliament (and therefore is hardly worth the time of day) vs Jeremy Corbyn's fantasy Brexit that has never been tested in EU negotiations. In other words, impossible choice #1 vs

So, the big #BrexitDebate is happening on BBC, or perhaps ITV, or maybe not at all. All clear as mud. What's crystal clear is we won't get a moment to rival Yvette Cooper's masterful dismantling of Theresa May's Brexit plan in today's Liaison Committee.…
Here's the question I would love to see Theresa May pushed to give a PROPER answer to:

"Comparing like for like, *not* compared to today's figures, will your Brexit agreement leave the UK better off or worse off in 15 years time than it would otherwise be in 15 years time?"
It's a mouthful and could I'm sure be improved upon, but both the preamble and the repetition feel necessary because Theresa May keeps avoiding the issue by pretending people are asking her similar questions vs "today".

Of course the UK will be better off in 15 years time in raw
