🗳️🇫🇷 Les citoyens de la #ConventionCitoyenne #climat votent défavorablement (82%) à l'idée de soumettre à #référendum les mesures visant à contraindre les propriétaires occupants et bailleurs à rénover de manière globale
La justification des 150 citoyens est vraiment scandaleuse.

Pour résumer, ils estiment que les Français ne sont pas aussi bien informés qu'eux et qu'ils rejetteront évidemment la mesure car ils ne voudraient pas payer plus d'impôts et voir leurs libertés limitées.

Just chatting with one of my political confidants and the equalization referendum makes so much more sense now. THREAD

Where has @jkenney faced some of his greatest opposition?

Public school boards, and municipal councils.
It's been rumoured for some time that there would be some slates run in the next municipal election.
The @Alberta_UCP tested this out with their so called "Students Count" slate in the 2017 #yyccbe @yyCBEdu election.

[mini thread #postexpo]
01 Volete voi che @ComuneMI adotti tutti gli atti ed effettui tutte le azioni necessarie a garantire la conservazione integrale del parco agroalimentare che sarà realizzato sul sito EXPO e la sua connessione al sistema delle aree verdi e delle acque?
02 Il terzo dei cinque #referendum municipali impegnava (parola di @giulianopisapia) alla vocazione verde del sito espositivo. A dieci anni dal voto e cinque da #expo2015 non solo @BeppeSala insiste sul coprire almeno 1,3 MLD d'investimenti pubblici mai rientrati..
03 ma il verde nell'area #MINDMILANO (65% permeabile, 56% parco nella teoria) è stato più che dimezzato. Su queste basi è partito un ricorso al TAR e continua la storia infinita della capitale del food..porn.

En la encuesta que @50mas1 realizó a #congresistas, también se les preguntó su opinión sobre la Constitución de 1993. (1/8)
En vista del proyecto de ley presentado el día de hoy por Acción Popular, que "declara de interés nacional la convocatoria a un #referéndum total que sería la elaboración de una nueva Constitución y/o efectuar una #reforma parcial", (2/8)
vale la pena analizar las opiniones de los parlamentarios en torno a dicha cuestión.
La mayoría de #congresistas de Acción Popular consideró que la Constitución de 1993 "debería #reformarse", (es decir, mantener la Constitución actual pero hacer enmiendas). (3/8)

📰 Pendant 10 ans j'ai vu évoqué le court texte de Carré de Malberg sur le #référendum, sans jamais me pencher dessus.

Ca y est, je l'ai lu. Et c'est une véritable bombe que je vous conseille de lire au plus vite et dont je vous présente les principales lignes ci-dessous ⬇️
Raymond Carré de Malberg, juriste et constitutionnaliste, écrit ces mots en 1931

La IIIe République est dans sa vitesse de croisière, la souveraineté du Parlement à cette époque est totale. (Un peu comme le Président est souverain complet actuellement, nous y reviendrons)
Cette souveraineté du Parlement s'exerce certes sur les autorités étatiques mais aussi sur le peuple qui ne dispose que de pouvoirs électoraux et qui ne voient sa volonté qu'uniquement exprimée par les députés

A l'époque le droit de dissolution n'existe plus dans les faits.

A me piace trarre dagli eventi spunti di riflessione. E uso Twitter per condividerli.
Prima considerazione, o meglio quesito, è quanto e per quanto tempo saremo disposti a barattare la ns. #salute con le ns. #libertà?

leurispes.it/coronavirus-mi…
Il secondo è in che misura, per lo stesso motivo, accetteremo l'intrusione delle #tecnologie nella nostra privacy?

agendadigitale.eu/sicurezza/priv…
Il terzo, che racchiude entrambi i precedenti, è: stiamo assistendo a un fenomeno temporaneo, destinato a rientrare con la fine dell'#emergenza, o ci stiamo abituando a farci erodere spazi di #democrazia?

Pensiamo alle recenti dichiarazioni di #Fico.

Il primo pensiero va a tutto il personale sanitario. E alle persone con difese immunitarie basse, con rischi più seri. Rischiamo più fallimenti che morti, è vero. Ma non sottovalutiamo le condizioni di chi rischia la vita per il #coronavirus
#RenziCorriere
L'Italia è dipinta come diffusore del virus. La colpa viene data alla gestione. Ma darla agli ospedali è ingiusto! Sono stati fatti errori di comunicazione, che è sostanza. Passata l'emergenza dovremo porci il problema del recupero di reputazione internazionale.
#RenziCorriere
La crisi c'era già prima dello scoppio del coronavirus: andavamo verso la recessione. Ciò che è accaduto peggiora le cose. Tutto si giocherà sulla capacità di reazione: in ogni disastro c'è anche un'opportunità. Noi saremo pronti con le nostre proposte.

De BELANGRIJKSTE punten uit de #CETA-speech van @thierrybaudet. De #EU onderhandelt namens 27(26) landen en dus NIET namens #Nederland.
#OneSizeFitsNoOne
Vergelijkbaar probleem: de #ECB KAN geen rentevoet vaststellen die voor elk EU-land goed is.
#Nederland wordt nu al gedwarsboomd BINNEN de #EU
Voorbeeld: #Frankrijk zorgde dat de NL #pulsvisserij kapot werd gemaakt. #CETA is een ondermijning van onze #democratie en #soevereiniteit.
De #anywheres profiteren, de #somewheres verliezen hun stem.
Kunnen we na #CETA nog voorwaarden stellen aan producten uit Canada? We geven iets weg wat we NOOIT meer terug kunnen krijgen. Lobbyisten van #multinationals krijgen NOG MEER invloed ten koste van de gewone burgers. De weg ligt open voor #procedeerclubs als #Urgenda.

2007 FT-Harris poll suggested signs #Brexit was always destined to happen more than 10 yrs ago. 2007 publication asked #Germans #French #British #Italian #Spanish people if they believed their life had got better in the #EU
/1
Survey results showed 📈
dissatisfaction among more than ○ 44% of citizens in #Germany, #France & #Italy, founder members of the #EEC (precursor to #EU, 50 yrs ago)
#UK, 52% of Britons claimed their lives had got worse since the country joined the EEC in 1973

After its release, Brussels officials rejected the FT-Harris 2007 #poll.

European Commission spokesman claimed that the #British people, who believed life was better before the bloc, were simply “nostalgic & insecure” 👇

#TacticalVoting. A thread.

I ‘m not sure people ‘get’ tactical voting. In principle we understand the idea of not voting for our first choice in order to influence the parliamentary maths.
(1)
But we are still drawn, magnetically, emotionally or tribally, to the person or party we would like to win without objectively assessing whether that person actually has a chance.
(2)
This is not a #referendum. If the person you vote for does not win, you are left with nothing. (3)

For the day that’s in it, here’s a thread on #consent.
Or, rather, Consent as it's being referred in the N.Ireland hiccupy-part of the #Brexit process.

@DPhinnemore & I have been working on all of this stuff. Here’s 1 article on it. More to come.

1/15
blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/201…
@DPhinnemore We can all agree that consent = a good thing.
& when it comes to post-conflict NI, particularly so.
A history of mistrust & misuse of power means that making laws that work for people of all backgrounds = vital.
It's also important that democratic processes are seen to work.
2/15
@DPhinnemore There is no ‘principle’ of consent in #1998Agreement per se, but it's there in 2 main forms.

The 1st = majority consent.
No change to the constitutional status of NI without it being approved by the majority of people in NI. Hence the provision for a #borderpoll in future.

#India escalates tensions☢️ in #Kashmir; claims terror threat but offers no evidence. #NewDelhi is:
➡️Thumbing nose at #US Pres #Trump who twice in 2weeks called for end to K conflict
➡️Scuttling #USPakistan process in #Afghanistan
➡️Hiding #Modi home mess
To show contempt to President #Trump & the #US, #India has released a rapist, relative of ex-mayor of #NewDelhi, who raped a #US woman.
The #US is a big reason for #India's escalation against #Kashmir & #Pakistan.
➡️Ind is angry at #Trump ending #Indian abuse of #American visas; trade tariffs
➡️Ind is angry at #USPakistan coop in #Afghanistan, statements on K
➡️Ind & #Iran lobbies in DC are coop'ing against Trump

A #brexit thread 👇

1. In 2017 we were invited to #No10 to talk to Gavin Barwell about our thoughts on things. I had a conversation with him on #Brexit that rings absolutely true now and is more relevant than ever - so I thought I'd share:
2. I said to him that #Brexit had redrawn 'party lines' - that right/left was now less relevant that #leave/#remain and we had to examine our 'core vote' on that basis. We had done well in the #Mansfield-esque seats and lost the Croydons, we needed to think about why.
3. I said to Barwell that there was no compromise that would keep both #remainers and #leavers happy. That we could not keep both audiences on board in the context of #Brexit and we should not try - it's impossible. We had to leave first, and then we could rebuild the coalition.

@zaiapresidente L'attuale Autonomia delle Regioni ha acuito il gap tra le aree più avanzate e quelle più arretrate del Paese.

Autonomia su ulteriori materie acuirà il gap penalizzando drammaticamente il cittadini residenti nelle regioni più arretrate che già sono molto penalizzati.

1/..
@zaiapresidente Chiediamo leggi che consentano davvero di colpire amministrazioni inefficienti.

I cittadini ne hanno diritto, tutti, perché è ingiusto sprecare denaro pubblico e ne hanno diritto ancor di più i cittadini delle regioni inefficienti perché privati di adeguati servizi.

2/..
@zaiapresidente Infine, #referendum è una truffa:
Infatti, se comporta modifiche anche a leggi dello #Stato, allora avrebbe dovuto essere nazionale

Evidenze decennali testimoniano che #Autonomia aumenta il gap, è ovvio che basare la riforma su referendum solo in regioni progredite è #truffa

Sorpreso da servizio sul #JudiciProcés di @TgLa7, unica testata televisiva italiana che fino ad oggi aveva mostrato sforzi di approfondimento della questione catalana (grazie anche alla sensibilità sul tema dal direttore #Mentana)
#JoAcuso @Foreign_Cat @CollectiuEmma 👇

Il servizio in questione, parlando del #referendum del #1O, mostra immagini di scontri violenti tra manifestanti e polizia.

Le immagini non sono del #1o ma dei disordini provocati da gruppi di estrema destra il #12o, nel ‘dia de la hispanidad’.
Nelle video è chiaramente riconoscibile Plaça #Catalunya e i manifestanti portano bandiere spagnole.

@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Report here is obfuscation. Issue isn't the total collective campaign spending, it’s about who broke the law & how. #Remain campaigns were fined for failing to submitting returns correctly. They didn’t act fraudulently to overspend. The largest fine was to Lib Dems, £18K. 1/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Carole Cadwalladr & others have reported extensively: The #Leave campaigns have been found guilty of serious breaches of the law by the Electoral Commission and the ICO and are now under criminal investigation for other offences. 2/
@mrmarchee @garrygreen888 @moonhare77 @carolecadwalla Vote Leave – Official Leave campaign: Fined £61K by Electoral Commission for colluding with BeLeave & overspending the £7m limit by £500k. They paid #AIQ this amount for Facebook ads in the name of BeLeave. Vote Leave now referred to Met/NCA for further suspected fraud. 3/

"Catalonia and the trial on the referendum: a challenge for the EU". Conferència conjunta amb el president @QuimTorraiPla a Brussel·les

📲 Pots seguir-la en directe aquí ➡️ bit.ly/2NbLWBK

#CatalanEU
Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU
The simple fact that this trial could take place brings #ShametoSpain and, therefore, to the entire #EuropeanUnion, whose main institutions have chosen to remain silent, when facing such a disgraceful situation where democracy is at stake #CatalanEU

Even more gold from @BESResearch -- while I do think that online opinion polls are generally extremely problematic due to the likely significant selection bias that it introduces, there is still some signal in the data that tells us about the nature of #leave support in 2016.
Waves 7/8 asked participants what they expect how the EU referendum is going to pan out... i.e. it asked what probability respondents attach to a #Leave vote, some subsequent waves ask whether people regret how they vote.
20 - 30% of respondents stated the probability of a #Leave success is less than 40%. Now, the nice thing is the BES also subsequently asked, how people voted and whether they regret how they voted -- it asks whether people are #remainernow

1. A short story of #Brexit in four acts. Act 1) in 2010 Coalition comes to power and presses on with dramatic #austerity, wrecking the UK's social compact... causing massive economic harm...leading to 2015 General Election
2.... in which Cameron promised an #EUref, while secretly speculating on another hung parliament with #LibDems blocking such a referendum theguardian.com/world/2019/jan… Yet, Act 2) lots of #austerity disgruntled #LibDems & 2010 non-voters, along with some Cons voters switched to..
3. #UKIP in 2015 General Election. #LibDems got wiped out, #Cons gained 27 seats from LibDems (out 28 overall seat gain), while #Labour lost massively to #SNP -- allowing Cameron to go alone, being pushed by #Brexiteers in #Conservative party to go ahead with #EUref.

#BorisJohnson has been accused of lying about claims concerning #Turkey during the #Referendum. My legal team and I are prosecuting @BorisJohnson for the alleged offence of misconduct in public office, in connection with claims he made that the UK 'sends' £350 million to the EU.
2. Mr Johnson is innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law. Please do not comment upon Mr Johnson's innocence or guilt once the case has been initiated with the courts in the coming weeks.
3. Please use respectful and measured language when referring to Mr Johnson, the courts and our case whilst the prosecution case is active. Do not risk being accused of contempt of court.

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
#HappyNewYear2019
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

'#NorwayPlus'
assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

'ngiorno, ecco la mia newsletter di oggi sulla #Brexit. Stamattina è partito il dibattito parlamentare di 5 giorni prima del voto decisivo dell'11 dicembre. Si parla molto del possibile "oltraggio al Parlamento" di May. Ma oggi la notizia più importante è arrivata dal Lussemburgo
1. Che cosa c'entra il Lussemburgo con la #Brexit? Ebbene, dal piccolo stato europeo è arrivato un importante parere scritto di Campos Sánchez-Bordona, massimo consulente legale della Corte europea di Giustizia (ECJ), dopo la richiesta di alcuni politici britannici.
2. Il general advisor della ECJ ha scritto che l'articolo 50 (quello che May ha attivato per innescare la procedura della #Brexit di due anni che scade il fatidico 29 marzo 2019) può essere REVOCATO UNILATERALMENTE dal Regno Unito senza dover avere l'approvazione dei 27 membri Ue

There's far too much #bull being rattled around this ref. proposal. Wake up #Ireland folks; yes, we need to amend wording to reflect reality, ensure equality of responsibility is norm; no, it would be terminally stupid to throw it all out altogether,reduce legal standing of all/1
2/ from potentially exploitative employers' points of view. Amendment should not mean rescinding basic tenets on protecting #economic position of wo/men w children & of childrens' rights to home & care there, it should mean updating in line with values & mores of us now & ongoing
3/ See the shiiiiit-stirrrrring for what it is: #brexit deflector #Border deflector #EU agreement deflector #criminalcase going down deflector #Referendum #Women of #Ireland you're way brighter than that, get a grip. And trolls can just bot off with themselves. Hi @TransparentRef
