“I don’t think there will be much risk at Christmas time,” member of @BorisJohnson administration tells @ft…but that’s the kind of complacency that has industry wondering if govt really gets how tangled up things are - globally and domestically. So… /1

So as Alan Williams of @daviesturner freight forwarders explains, #COVID19 totally scrambled the world supply chains by shutting down bits of the economy in different orders. The result is a nightmare of rising costs and congestion. /2
Look 👀 at those shipping rates… 14 times pre pandemic levels. And shipping times doubled. So big chance Christmas lights start arriving in January …lots of summer stock landed late. /3

Since that dark day in 2016, there was not a single point in this process where #remainers had ANY INPUT WHATSOEVER about what form Brexit would take.

We put our arguments. We marched in our millions. And were excluded. Ignored. Ridiculed.

Own your #BrexitRiots, #Brexiters.
This article from 2 days before the referendum was true then. True now. It doesn't matter where you insert your union jack.

No patriot would do this to their country.

Own your #BrexitRiots.

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
We patriots marched in our millions to rescue our country. To rescue our freedoms. To rescue peace.

Not a single word of the Brexit Agreement was shaped by a #remainer.

Not one.

After a divisive referendum of lies won by a narrow majority.

Own your #BrexitRiots, #Brexiters.

Simon Dolan the conspiracy peddler funded by Putins Gazprom has closed his account. Narcissists can’t stay away. He’s maybe cleaning up as his PR company represents many private healthcare outfits. And @DementiaUK sadly. He encourages anti vax anti infection control gsrbage.
Let’s look how it started....bragging about carrying life saving PPE. But being non Dom and tax avoidant the man worth 209m wasn’t eligible for a bailout from U.K. tax payers money. Rightly so. Note the red mist...his vengeance #KBF was born.
No money no love....Simon voted for Boris. Championed him until this point. Anyway.....let’s look at his associates.

① of ⑧ On my Facebook page, under my video about the case for #Breturn, ardent #Brexiter Bob Pattenden commented: ‘You can’t accept a Democratic vote you lost get over it and move on, but you always have the democratic choice to move to a EU country but my guess is you won’t’ Image
② of ⑧ I replied: My Facebook page only supports strictly democratic means to achieve change. In a #democracy, if you lose, you don't have to give up. You can hope and campaign to win next time. That's precisely what #Brexiters did after they lost.
③ of ⑧ So, please, don't bring double standards to my Facebook page. If #Eurosceptics could campaign for a new vote after they lost, then so can #Remainers/ #Rejoiners too. If that was not the case, we would no longer have a democracy.

For those of us who didn’t know it before, these negotiations have revealed the beauty of the Single Market. It enables the creation of enormous economic power through scale while at the same time by regulation setting economic activity firmly in the context of social values.
Contrast this with the brutalist, one could almost say 19th century, approach to economics of #Brexit advocates whose vision is limited to a simplistic profit motive & who consider social provision, the environment & human rights etc essentially as hindrances to economic growth.
This makes the views of the so-called Lexit camp all the more ridiculous. So much of what a leftwing party should aspire to is embodied in the Single Market. And yet #Lexiters fail to see that and take the side of the brutalist capitalists!

I've decided to make a gallery for all my encounters with #Brexiters.

I may add the encounters of other Remainers aswell. If you have a screenshot, DM it to me and I'll add it in.

It will be in no particular order.

So after 4 years what have we learned #Brexiters?

1. #ShapeShiftingCreeps make bad leaders
2. Voting them in made you poorer & less free
3. Your children despise what you've done to their country and future
4. The majority, won't accept this gutter you expect us to live in now.
Remember when they told you there were no downsides to #Brexit?

Now they're telling you that trading with the US isn't important.

At what point do you wake up and realise these are the instructions for turning a country into North Korea?

North Korea is so successful, you can see it from space at night.

Did you miss the latest #Brexit Trade hypocrisy while everyone was pointing at Russia?

TLDR is

1. Brexit is giving us even less control of trade deals than under the EU

2. All our rollover deals are dead in the water because of our stupid No Deal No Leverage stance
👩‍🔧😢2/8
Hansard Quotes, unless stated.

A Tory finally points out what we've been saying for 2 years.

The No Deal no Leverage nonsense has undermined our negotiation position.
Deals are not being rolled over and
We're screwed with no options

Hardest deal in history?
👩‍🔧😢3/8
#Brexit promise: Give Parliament control over trade deals. You guessed it - Tory Brexit gives Parliament EVEN LESS control than we had in the EU!

The Brexit lie was the EU didn't let us review trade deals.

UNTRUE.

UK Gov chose not to have Parliament review them.

I recognise this same behaviour in #Brexit. #Brexiters needed an enemy so #Remainers became the enemy.

And the more ridiculous and divorced from 2016 Brexit that their ideas became so the more Remainers pointed that out...

google.com/amp/s/qz.com/1…
2/4

...and the more #Brexiters dug into even worse outcomes driving further lies.

A mutual assured destruction of UK plc.

Could it have been resolved differently?

Well, I can think of many ways that #Brexit could have been an objective project managed on its merits. But...
3/4...none were possible after the lies of 2016.

I think three things could have saved us.

1. Leadership.
a) a good PM would have kicked Brexit into review
b) a good opposition would have built a strong case against.

2. Free Press
If we had one Brexit would have been buried.

*I Can't take the credit for this masterpiece, it's brilliant* .😜😂😂😂😇

Walking down the street🚦🛣, a Member of Parliament (an ERG member) is hit by a lorry🚛 and dies⚰.
His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter. He says, "'Welcome to heaven. Before you settle in,
it seems there's a problem. We never see anyone in such high office around here, so we're not sure what to do with you."
'Just let me in,' says the politician.
'Well, I'd like to, but I have instructions from above. You'll have to spend one day in Hell🔥
and one in Heaven🌈, then you can choose where to spend eternity.'

'Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven,' says the MP.

'I'm sorry, but we have our rules.' replies St Peter
With that, St. Peter escorts him to the lift and he went down, down, down to Hell.

There's so much going on here it's difficult to know where to start!

But start we must.

So, remember when the Brexiters said #Brexit was all about sovereignty & being free? Well, turns out America will decide your policies. You have no veto. Or vote. 1/8 telegraph.co.uk/business/2019/…
Secondly, Britain and the US are both members of the Five Eyes security alliance. Trump's administration would have shared their intel on #Huawei with the UK.

It is very telling that Britain did not buy in to Trump's anti-Huawei narrative that it poses a #security risk.

2/8
Trump's position was already undermined when he had said that @Huawei could be part of a trade deal with #China - apparently ignoring the "fact" that it is a #security risk. If it was such a risk, it would never be allowed to trade in the US. 3/8

1. Neither I nor #Remain millions R Extremists but #Brexit's marginalised the Centre to the point we've become extreme
Extremely Angry
Extremely Politicised
Extremely Determined

Govt/Opposition/#Brexiters/#Lexiters thought we'd just Suck It Up, Get Over It, Move On.

BIG MISTAKE
2. We no longer see Tories or Labour, PM or Corbyn as the only alternative to each other. That's a false conceit you want us to swallow. Tactical voting & social media played out in GE2017. #Brexit is toxic & will continue to be if U don't #RevokeA50. A plague on both your houses
3. This is an Existential & Generational Crisis sucking the life & soul out of our Country..there is No Good..No Viable #Brexit nor #Lexit..both = #BrexitShambles
Both Remove Rights w/o Consent & leave us Worse Off.
There is NO COMPROMISE between IN or OUT beyond the one we have.

Dear friends, I must draw your attention to a trend here. It is as if all #brexiters have been told to lie blatantly. Raab' claims that being in a weaker position strengthens our bargaining power is pure #altright cognitive dissonance. It is a deliberate confusion tactic 1/
This is one of the hallmarks of the Leave Campaign and other campaigns where the #altright hate machine has been involved. It is using lying as a weapon designed to further obscure the truth and make people give up on trying... silence opposition based on truth /2
It is also a key part of stirring up hate. It is societal antagonism/terrorism. It is designed to enrage and encourage hate, anger and violence. It is designed to, for example, encourage verbal attacks against #leavers to use as proof of hate against them... 3/

In her 18 Xmas speech, HM QE2 avoided Brexit entirely (she did mention Commonwealth), in the "BBC balance" interpretation of Royal obligation to be politically neutral. We can speculate on meaning and intent. But it got me thinking about requirements for reconciliation. Thread.
Leavers would need due consideration and political action on the discontents that drove their vote. E.g. redistribution, investment in communities whose public services have been eroded. Creating + opportunities: vocational training, education. Community-building and integration.
Parties can help by recruiting talent from outside the Public School - Oxford PPE - Spad conveyor belt. Westminster can help by letting serious £ move to regions. A decade of austerity has also left a sense that working people absorbed the consequences of moral hazard in City.

THREAD on the Subject of #Brexit & Respect...with a hint of Betrayal.

#Remain #Remainers, #RemainerNow Pls RT or feel free to Use this whenever you are told to Respect the Non-Binding Referendum & by all means add some more.
1. #Brexiters & #Lexiters have 2 justications, apart from 'we won you lost', for the #BrexitShambles.
Namely that we must RESPECT the #Brexit Ref result & that to seek to overturn it would BETRAY the Will of the 'British People'. (nb they often omit the N. Irish)
2. Respect or Lack of Respect & Betrayal at the heart of #Brexit...so...why should we Respect the EURef 2016 & Who or What is being Betrayed?

No. This is actually happening. This "scaremongering"/"project fear" narrative has to stop now. There is demonstrable proof that this and other similar things are happening on the ground (recently including CAF). Real lives impacted.

This is #Brexit reality.
It's high time for #Brexiters to grow up and understand that just because the reality of what is happening does not fit their narrative, does not mean that it is not real.

It's time to grow up and own your mistakes.

You created this. Deal with it like we have to.

#StopBrexit
What Bob here fails to comprehend is that the residence requirements for EU citizens and non-EU citizens are very different. So you could easily comply with the EU ones but not the non-EU ones.

That is very much the point.

I want to address this tweet and the comments that followed. It seems that some of you did not get the point.

#NHS #StopBrexit #FBPE #PeoplesVote
The point is this:

The UK has access to technetium-99m because it's a member of an international treaty facilitating its trade & movement. Without it, treatment & detection of certain cancers is much harder, waiting lists will grow and people will die.

The further point is this:

There are 9.5 months to go until the UK drops out of EURATOM. 9.5 months is not enough to negotiate a brand new treaty or to join an existing one on another continent.

1. Seen quite a bit of anti #FBPE nonsense...mainly from the further left..we've been called a cult by Corbynistas...I'd remind them, cultists worship deities PEOPLE or objects; opposing a #Brexit which is leaving us all Poorer, Weaker with Less Control & Fewer Rights is neither.
2. Using #FBPE doesn't make us anti Corbyn or Labour it makes us anti #Brexit & sadly that means we are in opposition to those who are forcing a flawed #BrexitShambles upon the Ppl & denying the Ppl a #FinalSay a #PeoplesVote to Confirm the Will of the Ppl to leave or to #Remain.
3. Fighting to give the Ppl a #FinalSay nor indeed giving the Ppl a #PeoplesVote doesn't thwart #Brexit nor disrespect anyone..it merely allows everyone to Confirm if they still want it or now to #StopBrexit & #Remain...it's called DEMOCRACY as it allows ppl to change their minds

1/ Liz it is not that you reported on Nigel & Jacob throwing some fish into the Thames. It’s that you did not also report on many many many more people marching against #Brext. The logic given for. It doing so does not add up.
2/ it is also that you did not raise critical & basic questions in regard to said stunt throwing of fish into the Thames. It is the total Government pro #Brexit. Has exhibited by @BBCNews in recent years.
3/ It is the sheer number of appearances by #Brexiters such as #farage versus #Remainers. It is the ambush mounted on @carolecadwalla by @AndrewMarr9 & #Brexstremjst guest

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
2. Never has this one on the #Tory Kakistocracy seemed more relevant with @michaelgove throwing #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe under a bus on #Marr to throw a political lifeline to his dangerously incompetent buddy @BorisJohnson

1) strong message here for remaining #Brexit supporters

You were lied to, you are led by chancers, get a grip
amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
2) Yes, ok, Remain ran a terrible campaign & Cameron was an arrogant fool.
Yes #Brexit sounded easy & even exciting
But, enough's enough
3) whatever happened in the campaigns, this is the reality.
There is no £350 M, #Brexit will cost far more than our membership
