What EXACTLY happened in Newport West?

1. A, in 2016, staunch Leave seat voted in a Labour #PeoplesVote campainer as MP
2. UKIP vote increase was less than the Tory loss
3. Biggest gain was minor anti #Brexit parties - #Green, #Renew, #PC, #LibDems

& thats in a Leave seat....
In other words:

Delay/2nd ref likely to be more dangerous to Tories than Labour.
Danger to Labour is if anti #brexit is concentrated outside of Labour.

Remain thus becomes a vote winner even in Leave constituencies...
...but only if Labour takes lead & doesnt split remain vote.
Its increasingly clear that #Brexit is actually an oppotunity for Labour.
There will (always has been) 10-15% brexit vote, but Labour shouldnt fear this. A tory party obsessed with EU will split/demotivate their vote - Labour just needs to be the remain party & its a home run.

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See buff.ly/2LEP6vi by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.

#Hydrogen #FCEV vehicles are very unlikely to become any kind of transport solution because they just don't make environmental or economic sense when compared to battery electric vehicles. #BEV
Hydrogen itself is just another fossil fuel as almost all of it is made from natural gas with carbon emissions as a significant byproduct. So the basic premise of the #FCEV is destroyed right there because it's just another fossil fuel car and not #Green at all.
The only other significant means of production is electrolysis which accounts for only 4% of all commercially available hydrogen fuel. It's used for only this tiny amount of production because it's massively inefficient, throwing away up to 75% of the electrical energy input.

If you want to play along, here is the actual Full Text of Tax Plan aka #GOPTaxScam I am going to start reading and commenting follow if you want thread 1/? docs.house.gov/billsthisweek/…
If you acquire a new home, you can only deduct $750,000 in interest, compared to $1,000,000.00 before. This could impact many homes in California, NY, and in a lot of urban areas that vote Democrat. #TrumpTax Plan 2/?
The #StudentLoan interest deduction will remain. Because they did not repeal all of the #EstateTax they just raised the exemption from 5 million to 10 million. #GOPTaxPlan 3/?
