Last week, the UK announced that it was eliminating all remaining tariffs and quotas on Ukrainian imports - something it was able to do because of Brexit. The reaction from Europhiles, and even some EU officials, has been telling - and not in a good way. A thread. ๐Ÿงต (1/9)
Background. In 2014, Ukraine and the EU (then of course including Britain) signed a deal eliminating most tariffs, but leaving some in place, especially in agri-foods. Britain inherited this deal on leaving. The remaining tariff schedules are here. eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/โ€ฆ (2/9)
Since the Russian invasion, Kiev has been lobbying London and Brussels for the removal of the last tariffs and an easing of the more stringent border checks. This matters a lot, because Ukraine has lost its coastline. All its exports must now pass through EU territory. (3/9)

A sincere, no BS, friendly message (and strategy) to all #StarmerOut folks.

It's a long ๐Ÿงตbut please read.

1/
Firstly, there's no disagreement between us. Starmer has proven one of the most ingenuine politicians in our history. He has repeatedly rowed back on his leadership pledges & sentiments and proven untrustworthy in his words and actions as leader.
2/
He has been a babe in the woods. Policy illiterate and not particularly interested in ideas. Electorally inept, taking the hand of his elders when he's lost and then caught in the headlights when the strategy handed to him doesn't work.

2 /โ€žI totally understand your frustration.
Itโ€™s unbelievable what selfishness people have these days.

You are right and correct in all you say.

There is zero excuse for the brutality and mass murder that Putin is doing in Ukraine
3 /(and in several other countries of course) and how he corrupted Brexit and how he corrupted the UK government and how he gives billions of pounds to his oligarch friends in Knightsbridge while his own Russian people are dying of poverty and freezing to death in the wide areas

What does hashtag activism achieve?
Brexit opened up a wave of liberal online activism, where retweets were seen as a battleground against leaving the EU.

If #FBPE has taught us anything, it's how Twitter's ability to engage is mistaken for meaningful political participation.
No, this isn't denouncing pressure group and campaigning. But exposed many times over, these campaigns often bely their purposes.
FBPE has engaged in racism, transphobia, toxic Eurocentrism, and harassment.

It's mocked for being centrist, when its methods deserve scrutiny too.
Credit to @DeanRed123 and others who've looked at the @GOV2UK project launched by the JohnsonOut originator. Here's a website designed for local 'campaigning', avoiding scrutiny and crucial regulation for data.

FBPE opened doors for grifts and abuse, and now the model is worse.

As we approach 2022 it makes me think of one particular thing, the London Olympics in 2012. When one looks back it seems now it was the last remains of the fading light from a country that existed before this government came to power. 1/
Away from the politics for a moment, this country was a different countryโ€ฆ a more unified country in a time before brexit even existed. Think about that, think about how devoid the national ether was of political stench and hate mongering. 2/
It was it can be argued socially more advanced, again more down to the longer term general advancement and enlightenment then politics, which came to an abrupt end when this government arrived. They hated it. 3/

#FBPE #FBNHS. To: the people complaining about masks/mitigation. No, Covid might not kill you - though it might: depends on your physical health including conditions you might not know you have, such as silent hypertension or coronary artery disease. But that's not the point.
The point is that if they're infected, and ill, the people YOU rely on without even thinking about it, can't do their jobs. If ONE train driver is infected and off work, it's no big deal. What if many are? If ONE delivery driver for a supermarket can't drive, no issue. But . . .
what if many are? What if many bin collectors are off? What if many supermarket workers are off? What if many teachers are off? But more importantly, what if many health staff and carers are off with this so called "mild version of Covid" (and we don't know how mild it is yet)?
