The ultimate #Brexitshambles victory. The partly Turkish, American born, Brussels schooled prime minister waving a Dutch/French produced #bluepassport made in Poland, offering inferior travel rights to Britons whose currency has fallen in value. Bon voyage! #gladtohaveanirishone
Does #PritiPatel not realise that waiting, a lot longer, is exactly what she will be doing with a #bluepassport? I'm sure she does, but hey, that's what. #Brexitshambles koolaid does to you.
@davidschneider @PeterMannionMP @IanDunt @Otto_English @gavinesler @Bonn1eGreer @MarinaHyde @mrjamesob @terrychristian The #brexitshambles brigade can't even take back control of their passport making process without help from the Poles.

I just find these realisations and pennies dropping extraordinarily tragic. This man didn’t think about his business when he voted leave. It just shows that people were truly taken in by the cherry picking arguments from leave. #brexit /Thread

They were made to believe they could have everything, that nothing would change, that we could still continue enjoying the full effects on business of the SM and CU and FOM whilst not having to accept the costs or reciprocal responsibilities of the four freedoms.
In truth the government will have to try and mitigate the effects on thousands of businesses but I can’t see how they can do that without slashing standards and regulations and the regulations won’t be what you think, they will be those related to workers rights etc.

The Daily Mail have systematically hunted Meghan and Harry down like Diana over a number of years. Now they claim H&M to be "traitors" for being hunted and choosing a different path for themselves ... cont'd

@DailyMailUK @MailOnline @AlisonKMurray @carolJhedges @RachelAshleyVox
Cont'd ...

The Mail's treatment of Meghan and Harry is the same behaviours that tabloids apply to Remainers, Judges etc.

They invested 17 pages of hate in their pursuit of H&M today because they chose a different pathway for their exit instead of a tunnel of love ...

#Meghan
Sorry seems to be the hardest word for Mail readers. It seems to me that they live their lives like candles in the wind ...

Meanwhile, #WWIII, #ClimateCrisis, #BrexitShambles get no coverage due to the #gaslighting of our gutter press ...

SIGNIFICANT - Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament, Dominic Grieve, who is aware of the contents of a report assessing the security threat posed by Russia to the UK's electoral events, has today accused Boris Johnson of preventing its publication...
Opposition MPs don't appear to want to let this go, Barry Sheerman has another bite of the cherry whilst Seema Malhotra raises a concern which Dominic Grieve addresses...

Please share with friends, family, democratic leavers

Everything you've been told about #Brexit is a lie.

It is not the will of the people, and it is your duty as a citizen to oppose and reject it

So we can build NHS, schools, our future.

There are hysterical myths that fly around Brexit.

You prefer the facts.

Bookmark this thread. Use it as a resource. Share the evidence.

Help urgently with the message we must oppose the cries of "will of the people". Their last "argument".

Let's look at the Brexit Tyrannies
Tyranny 1. The Brexits.

Whatever Brexit was in 2016, it's now unrecognisable. #FBPE

None of the 2016 promises delivered. None of the consequences has consent.

This evidence? We can compare all the 2016 promises against the deals. Detail in the thread.

On the 19th October 2019 we travelled from Cheshire on trains coaches and automobiles for a #PeopleVoteMarch to demand a chance to have a say on this #brexitshambles which threatens our jobs, our families, our rights and freedoms /thread

#SundayThoughts
We had a little song song on the way to pass the time on the road #singingtoremain
We assembled before joining the march. As we walked through the streets of our capital city we were cheered and smiled at and given the thumbs up. #FinalSay

My hot take for who the #caretakerprimeminister should be: @theresa_may
... Bear with me.

#brexitshambles #toryconference #rebelalliance
@theresa_may Reason 1/5: She won't want it. That makes her perfect. Been there, done that, hated it. No chance of her trying to make a power grab. Keeps things neutral for the election.
@theresa_may Reason 2/5: No-one will want her to do it. She is universally hated We're never going to find someone everyone wants; why not someone no-one wants? Equality, innit?

12. The I can't make it any easier than this FFS why Brexit makes bugger all economic sense. Thread⬇️

13. *Bots - Unlucky for Some.*
This is not a fashionable issue, but honestly, I personally worry about it more than most other things. It could win or lose more than a bit of CA interference

Here's my thread of thoughts about the Brexit shambles. Sorry for the medical analogy, but it's sort of my thing.
Imagine you have a dodgy gall bladder. It occasionally flares up and causes pain and that sucks, so you go to a doctor for help to have it removed.
During that consultation, your doctor says they can remove the gall bladder and presents you with a consent form to sign. It contains largely incorrect information about the potential risks and problems involved, as well as a long list of unbelievable benefits of the surgery.

More chalked comments seen in a Northern city. Has the #GraffitiGranny of #Wakefield inspired Chalksy of Lancaster?

[Thread] Evening to those following #BrexitShambles. In part 2 of my @BorisJohnson Tweet Analysis (I absolutely refuse to use the term 'deep dive'), I have analysed approximately 900,000 of Bojo's Twitter followers. Why you ask? Well who knows what you may find... #HouseOfCommons
@BorisJohnson Of the 900,000 followers analysed (he has around a million), around 53,000 joined Twitter in July and August 2019. That's around 6%. You can see a clear spike at that time on the graph, well above the average no. created per month, and one standard deviation. What does this mean?
@BorisJohnson Remember, the graph shows when people JOINED Twitter, not FOLLOWED Boris Johnson. If this was a sample of Tweets in a hashtag, it would be highly likely that most of these accounts are fake followers or bot accounts, designed in this case to boost Bojo's follower base, and ego

Watch the former head of the WTO, sat next to Andrea Leadsom back in 2016, perfectly predict our current situation, 3 years down the line. Amazing.

Have you read how the Lisbon Treaty will force the UK to adopt the Euro and join the Schengen Area?

THREAD.

(Spoiler - it's a load of codswallop. Read on and debunk the myths yourself.)

@mrjamesob @campbellclaret
You've probably seen one of the attached during your journey through social media. The Lisbon Treaty outlines plenty of changes happening in 2020 and 2022, right? Wrong.

'Why should I believe a remoaner?', you ask. You don't have to. Debunk the myths yourself.
1. Open up the Treaty - eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/… (web) or assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl… (PDF)
2. Ctrl+F
3. Search '2020' - no matches will be found
4. Search '2022' - no matches will be found
5. Pat yourself on the back, you've debunked the myths. The Treaty contains no such changes.

HoC Brexit indicative votes: FOR-AGAINST

160-400 No Deal
188-283 Common Market 2.0
65-377 EFTA & EEA
264-272 Customs Union
237-307 Labour's 'plan'
184-293 Revoke A50
268-295 Public vote
139-422 WTO terms
Theresa May's deal has - on both attempts - secured significantly less support than a #PeoplesVote achieved tonight.

But the Government groundhog day rhetoric continues...

The public deserves better than this #BrexitShambles - we should #PutItToThePeople Handwritten tallies of votes for different options
Let's just analyse those figures.

#PeoplesVote secured the biggest vote in favour - 268 votes

Obviously I'm not a fan of first past the post, but it did beat all the other options.

In an ironic twist, the vote share on this was 48% - 52%...

My thoughts on #PutitothePeopleMarch
Thread #fbpe
Sincerity? Why did so many people go to London yesterday to stand and shuffle a couple of short miles over a period of 5 hours? Sincerity drove us there in coaches and cars and trains and planes.
Only a sincerely held belief can draw over a million, probably 2 million ordinary citizens from across the UK and make the statement they made to political leaders and self serving political gamers and operators.

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.

There's been relatively little discussion about Brexit at @ucu VP hustings. This is likely because of our collective levels of despair, and ferocity of views held, but we as a union MUST be on top of the issues as strongly as possible. Here are my thoughts ⬇ /1
Thanks to @alvaromp for the question - I hope to be able to talk more to him and others in person about this (and more) at remaining hustings!
(List: vicky4vp.co.uk/2019/02/10/ucu…) /2
It would be easy to panic & disappear into a black hole of doom over current state of #Brexitshambles. But as a trade union we must always look for ways to defend, protect + improve the situation for our members & for society as a whole. 3/

John Bercow calling Peter Bone a delicate flower is a thing of joy, and Joanna Cherry ensuring Donald Tusk's words are registered in Hansard tops it all off beautifully

Solid British humour ftw, even in the face of the Unbearable Shiteness of Brexit

#MakeItStop #JustMakeItStop
Very pleased that Donald Tusk's heartfelt reaction to the Unbearable Shiteness of Brexit is now recorded in Hansard for posterity 🤣

Well done to all of those continuing to speak plain truths

I know everyone's gone straight to fighty biting about @eucopresident's fervent hope that those *responsible* for Brexitshambles will be rewarded with suitable punishment (#NotAllLeaveVoters)

but think it's important to read the full extent of his remarks

1. #Brexit sec: EU may not agree to #ExtendA50

ME: True...so to prevent this #BrexitShambles protect Rights & stop the haemorrhage of wealth & jobs we need to #RevokeA50 #StopBrexit & #Remain in Control in the EU with our current Best Possible Deal. #FBPE theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
2. And B4 you spout the usual #Brexit BS. It was not the largest vote in History if you consider the proportion of the Electorate.
Either way the opinion of 51.8% Voting still =
37% Voters
26.5% of the Ppl
Compound that with
Lies
Illegalities
Lost Mandates
NOTHING LEFT TO RESPECT
3. #Brexit is a Far Right Tory CON the tragedy is that too many Labour MPs are making themselves COMPLICIT.
Any version of #BrexitShambles
REMOVES RIGHTS W/O CONSENT &
LEAVES US POORER
#Lexit doesn't exist..

Here is a round up of our activities today. It was a busy day. We sent volunteers to the Cross in Chester and to Northwich to get out and talk to the people. THREAD
We took our lovely Mascot #EUnice and she really attracted some attention which allowed us to get into conversations with all kinds of people regardless of how they voted in the 2016 referendum.
People wanted to talk to us about how they felt about the #brexitshambles. We asked them what they thought about Mays deal, No-deal or Remain. There was quite a buzz and these were the scores on the doors about half way through.

There. Is. No. Time. To. Cook. Up. A. “Modified. Norway. Solution.” #BrexitShambles
Also, as others have also pointed out in reply to George, Anders Fogh Rasmussen was PM of Denmark, not Norway.
If you let autocorrect run its course, when you type “Anders Fogh Rasmussen” you get “Andrew Foghorn Rasmussen”
