Listen up, I'm only going to say this once. I believe in Democracy. It seems a lot of us don't, so it's worth mentioning. I've so internalized this Democracy that when any decision needs to be made, my default.

after hearing all the arguments and debate has concluded is to look around the room and ask for a show of hands. I feel like that's normal, and maybe it is, but that's the core of Democracy: Leaders listening to the will of the people. 2/
We're at a cross roads right now politically. Our leaders are telegraphing that they won't listen to the people. First they'll do everything in their power to manipulate and rig an election. And then, if that doesn't work, they'll refuse to relinquish power anyway. 3/

N.Ireland is once again the rope in the UK/EU tug of war.

(we've been here before, several times 🙄😩)

Both claim to be acting on the grounds of the Good Friday/Belfast 1998 Agreement.
🇬🇧🇪🇺🇮🇪

Both have a point…

But it’s complicated.

A twitter thread.

The Belfast/Good Friday #Agreement has 3 strands.

These strands represent the lines of division that gave rise to the #conflict:
* unionist/nationalist within NI,
* north/south across the border, &
* British/Irish.

The B/GFA formalised cooperation across these lines.

Crucially, all are #interdependent.

Underpinning it all is the British-Irish relationship
🇬🇧🇮🇪

That relationship was improved & became closer as a result of being ‘partners in the EU’ 🇪🇺

The EU was also a go-to model for some of that cross-border & multilevel cooperation.

First 5 minutes, and this college clearly never had a #POSH training because a student has plopped into a professor's lap and the professor is telling the girls they'll clear the exams
And of course the #electricguitar is connected to

After the referendum May slammed the door in the face of the 48%. Then she locked the moderate leavers up in another room, and negotiated #Brexit with her own cabinet and the pure Brexit ideologues. Goodbye to reality and compromise. #BrexitShambles
In Norway PM Gro Harlem Brundtland, who had campaigned for #Norway to join EU, stayed on her post so that she could negotiate an outcome as many as possible could accept. She went for #compromise and managed to unite a split country. 🇳🇴
PS. Gro Harlem Brundtland made an international career after she left Norwegian politics. I don’t agree with her politically, but she deserves respect. 🇳🇴
