Boris: "Let the Bodies Pile High In Their Thousands"

We need to remove The PM @BorisJohnson AND @Conservatives from No 10 Downing Street with immediate effect.

The tide has turned, now is the time to keep up the pressure!

Do not let Gove in, they hacked a referendum

#NoTories Let the bodies pile high in their thousands
You must remember this is the Daily Mail. They are the same people. They are the #Conservatives 🏧

Just when they are changing foot, we need to knock them off balance. They are trying to whitewash #ToryCorruption, Steve Bannon, Trump connection, Arcuri 👇

Did you behave with selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty & leadership when you had sex on your sofa in your marital home with your mistress you helped get money & lied about it?

Boris Johnson: "Yes" 🤦‍♂️

#TorySleaze #ToryLiars #DowningStreet Are affairs and lying are open and honest?
Here is @paulwaugh's question about Jennifer Arcuri..

..Boris Johnson answered one word

"Yes"

The PM seems to have had the first ever affair with honesty & integrity 🤔

#TorySleaze #ToryCronyism #ToryCorruption #ToryLies #ToryHypocrisy #ToryShambles
Jennifer Arcuri says her romance with Boris Johnson - who was Mayor of London at the time – lasted from 2012 to 2016, while he was married to Marina, mother of their 4 children.

He spoke at her events & she went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money 😲

LORD KERR
"FARCICAL proceedings, rubber-stamping a CRUCIAL Bill in an afternoon"😱
What's most striking =treaty's ASYMMETRY: We are a service economy running goods deficits & service surpluses, yet this treaty gives the 27 free access here for their goods but gives us nothing..
❌NOTHING in return on services:
❌NOTHING for the City or Edinburgh;
❌NO passporting
❌NO equivalence
❌NO recognition of qualifications
❌NOTHING on data adequacy
❌NOTHING for the digital or creative economy, hard hit by the loss of free movement.💔😭
As for exports of UK goods, on top of the NEW BORDERS & BUREAUCRACY, our negotiators have LOST on:
Rules of origin, on SPS & on testing & certification.😭

EU exporters to us face no similar costs here, so it is not just asymmetrical, it is LOSE-LOSE😭#BrexitReality #BrexitDeal

#RishiSunak is delluded, access for financial services but not for IT, creatives, those who work on site in EEA are ruined.
@SkyNews you must represent the voices of those in all services

#RishiSunak "anyone who is worried about the economic implications of the breach with Brussels should be "enormously reassured about the comprehensive nature" of the agreement". Utter bollocks @NE4EU

As @AndrewSparrow at the @guardian points out, Johnson led Vote Leave and then wrote the following in the Telegraph after the referendum result. Line by line analysis of the key part?: /1 theguardian.com/p/fptqf/stw
"I cannot stress too much that Britain is part of Europe, and always will be."

Well, he can't change geography, but the centre of gravity in politics and economics in Europe is not in the UK, and the UK is relegated to the periphery with a very limited relationship to the EU. /2
"There will still be intense and intensifying European cooperation and partnership in a huge number of fields: the arts, the sciences, the universities, and on improving the environment."

No: no partnership and none will intensify. Env only because EU insistence on LPF? /3

#Brexit #EndIfWithdrawal

Imagine 2 de merged companies desperate to trade w each other, but unable to come to an agreement let alone a contract.

What do they do?

Stopping trading not an option - they are heavily interlinked. Rely on each other. They just can’t sign yet 1/6
So they carry on trading and negotiating.

Both sides know and trust each other broadly. They are very close, have worked together for decades.

They just can’t agree on formalities. The practicalities are not a problem.

We are here at present.
#Brexit #EndOfWithdrawal
2/6
So what normally happens is agreements made piecemeal, and the companies send each other draft ideal contracts to bolster their legal standing should something go wrong.

It’s messy, informal, it is more risky, but it works.

.@AranchaGlezLaya is spot on that #Trade Agreements are means to manage interdependence not assert sovereignty. Here lies the rub: for pure Brexiteers, #Brexit is about asserting sovereignty from #EU hence #NoDeal described as “wonderful” solution by PM 1/
The quest to assert sovereignty seems strangely limited to EU, as, its logical corollary - to revisit all international arrangements that currently bind & limit UK sovereignty such as dependence on US for its #nuclear deterrent or its @NATO obligations - is never mentioned 2/
On #trade, this incongruence is most manifest. What is desired with any other trading partner than UK’s biggest one, is to complete ambitious Free Trade Agreements as quick as possible without public deliberation on what the acceptable degree of interdependence should be 3/

#Brexit update: Anything could happen tomorrow, but my guess is nothing will happen.

Talks are continuing as we speak, but there's no phone call or announcement scheduled for tomorrow's "deadline".

It's possible we end tomorrow with no news.
Like all the past deadlines (June, Oct), they've simply said that on Sunday they'll assess 'whether enough progress has been made to continue talks'.

When each deadline came they've said 'we've made some small progress so let's continue'. That may happen again tomorrow.
But if they decide to continue, surely at this point those talks will be only a charade.

Neither side wants to be seen as the one walking away from the table. Johnson flirted with it in October, then chickened out.

Talks will technically continue but #NoDeal will be assured.

I've just heard an English fishing boat captain called "Gerry Podschies" on CNN say that Britain should embrace #NoDeal, take our chips off the table, and then renegotiate "from a position of strength". ... WTF !!!? ... These people are utterly deluded!

The Prime Mole admits that insufficient garlic in the UK’s ‘oven ready’ meal deal offer is likely to be unpalatable to the EU. “I prefer to think it will now taste more like an exciting bushtucker trial with choice cuts of Kangaroo and Camel.”
#NoDeal #BrexitReality
The PM continues: “We have not made progress with the EU. Let’s not say ‘No Deal’, but rather the ‘Australia Option’. I am making alternative arrangements as we speak - I have ordered Oz style PPE from a ‘mate’ and will now make preparations to enter the jungle on WTO terms...”

I'll give you one example of how devastating #NoDeal will be. AstraZeneca is a British-Swedish pharmaceutical giant. It accounts for a full 1% of the UK's export GDP. Just AstraZeneca. On its own. (For reference, our *entire* fishing export GDP is a mere fraction of that.)

/1
AstraZeneca has a huge plant in Macclesfield, a town to the south of Manchester. As of March last year, the site employed a total of around 3,500 people in a variety of operations including IT & science as well as the manufacturing arm, which accounts for around 900 workers.

/2
Since March last year, the site has been shedding jobs like crazy. Why? Well, it might be because every batch of human medicine that is sold to the EU needs to be tested in the EU. We could do a deal to allow testing in the UK to continue, maybe under EU supervision.

#BrexitReality #Brexit #NoDeal

I have believed that since Johnson became PM, the intention has always been to route us to a "no deal", and a lot of the activity has been little more than token posturing and blame shifting.

This has been what a number of Johnson's sponsors 1/
have desired, and what ERG, Pharage etc have decided they want months AFTER the Brexit vote in 2016. This is why Pharage stood candidates down in many seats in the 2019 election, and why ERG have been largely quiet and in line.

This will of course be called an Australia type 2/
deal, but as Australia haven't a full arrangement it's just disingenuous wording, like the 350m for the NHS, "Get Brexit Done" etc.

Vote Leave's campaign material specifically talked of deals, and anything like this was labelled "project fear". If people say this is what they 3/

The EU is worried the UK being outside their rules, will have an "advantage" that it will be able to do more to help people and economic growth, and be too large a competition on their doorstep. Will hardcore remain campaigners now admit they are wrong?
thetimes.co.uk/article/forget…
This is literally them saying that without the ability to control us, they won't want a deal with us because they think that will scare us into being controlled. Why would it? They are clearly worried about the threat of an independent UK. When we voted leave they said...
That the "red lines" meant all we could have was a simple FTA, and it would be one "off the shelf" - so why are they changing that now? They must know we are not going to agree to ECJ oversight, or continued rule taking (following), yet apparently the EU had no control over us?

We have again written to Security Minister @JBrokenshire to raise concerns about plans to replace EU security and police cooperation mechanisms with non-EU alternatives after 31 December 2020 if a deal cannot be reached 1/3

Based on evidence we have heard, #NoDeal could have considerable impact on UK policing and public safety owing to a loss of access to EU databases and having to fall back on the 1957 EU Convention on #Extradition Find our letter here: committees.parliament.uk/publications/2… 3/3

Now that the predatory “no-bid” OBOR contract with the Chinese has been declared illegal by Kenyan courts, other African nations being preyed upon and bribed by the CCP should default in a chain-reaction. #MakeChinaPay #OBOR #china #Africa #nodeal scmp.com/news/china/dip…
OBOR is the chinese Communist’s method of bribing local officials to take on crippling debt for overpriced projects that are then built by chinese slave labor. The chinese workers are brought into “work camps” and fed by the CCP. There is next to zero local positive GDP impact
And the CCP expects payments on the projects to be made in USD. It’s time for an African Jubilee on illegal chinese loans.

I know you have loads to worry about right now but here’s a #Brexit one to make a mental note of for future reference.

The #IrishSeaBorder & the NI #Protocol 🌊

We've a bit of a conundrum here & we need to spell it out.
Because it cd matter BIG TIME.
#UKEUFTA

[sorry 🙄]
1/14
So.
@MichelBarnier reiterated today, the EU is being crystal clear:
The UK needs to get a move on in prepping for customs procedures for goods entering NI from GB.

This means a ‘harder’ Irish Sea border.
But it is what it agreed to in the #Protocol.

ec.europa.eu/info/european-…
But the UK is being somewhat blasé so far 🤷‍♂️

For it does mean barriers to trade within UK internal market.

We’re talking customs declarations, checks [no point in the former without the latter] & inevitable new controls, inc. products of animal origin (mad cow anyone?)🐮

1/6: Word on the street is that common sense is breaking out & government may be privately recognising that #Brexit negotiations now need to be postponed & transition extended beyond end December. This was always the right answer: here are 5 reasons why it is now doubly right...
2/6: Bandwidth. All UK & EU efforts should be devoted to tackling the massive #COVID crisis. Senior ministers & officials cannot have enough time now for the crucial business of deciding our long term relationship with #EU. And don’t forget #COP26 climate conference in Nov..
3/6: Practical. Travel suspensions are likely to last for months. Virtual negotiating is unsatisfactory. How do you read body language & do the private deal in the corridor? Also harder to coordinate large teams. And presumably key individuals will get ill along the way..
