When have we/the media stopped asking the difficult questions and are we damaging our cause?
A thread…..1/ #WATON #GE2019
2/ The #GE2019 is fought over big issues aside from Brexit. It’s a great tactic, if you don’t forget Brexit…..which is what is happening. We are living a re-hash of 2017. The B-word is reduced to slogans on the right and #Cakeism on the left. Best avoided by the leaders.
3/ It is almost as if they are not pressed for detail because we cynically believe we already know the answer they will give. But that just deprives us of ways to make our case.

Seems the EEA advocates think that EEA countries do not contribute to the EU budget. This is wrong. Check this link from the Norwegian Governments own pages:

Ideologists, huh?
Norway contributes to the EU budget in three major fields: to reduce social nd economic disparities, to take part in EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus), and the Schengen cooperation.
regjeringen.no/en/topics/euro…
Norway and other EEA countries’ contributions to the EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus) are on foot with full member states.
There is no taking part in EU programmes without contributions to the budget.

I'm reading the #Brexit White Paper here. Its utter #cakeism. EU will say no.

This is incredible. So the UK wants a common rule book for goods, but not services, membership of agencies ...

Who's going to be the fucking arbiter then? If not the ECJ!?

So we're at association agreement. Not FTA.
