Thread: I am hearing a lot of talk about a second referendum and going back to the question of reforming #freemovement, including this report from @sundersays on @nick_clegg's conversations around #Europe. I think this is a dangerous route to go. Here is why.
First, I am sure that governments across the EU have concerns about abuse of free movement. But this abuse, while serious, is marginal and receives very little attention from media and public opinion on the Continent.
Second, while some minor reforms to #freemovement are not only possible but also necessary, as @COdendahl and myself explain here - cer.eu/publications/a…, they won't happen any time soon and will surely be less likely to happen if a perceived 'blackmailing' comes from UK again

This makes me really angry. @britishineurope have been screaming into traffic for months that the removal of our free movement via not getting it into the withdrawal agreement was simply the first wave. Why are the media only waking up to it now?

Dear @DavidDavisMP,

We heard your answers at @LordsEUCom today and we thought you deserved your own thread.

1️⃣ You’ve apparently only just become aware of the importance of #freemovement for @BritishInEurope. Better late than never, we suppose...

2️⃣ But we do wonder if this is a little bit like how @AmberRuddHR wasn’t aware of deportation targets in @ukhomeoffice

3️⃣ Indeed, we’ve tried to tell you ourselves in person on many an occasion
