With the news of #JuliaHartleyBrewer appearing on @bbcquestiontime tonight, I’ve sent in my first-ever letter of complaint to the BBC. It’s brutal: (THREAD) #BoycottBBCQT
Dear BBC

I am disgusted that #JuliaHartleyBrewer is on @bbcquestiontime. I tune in to watch most weeks or catch up online, but I cannot watch tonight, out of principle.
My objection to Ms Hartley-Brewer isn’t for political reasons. She has a right to her opinion, and I respect that, even if I don’t agree with it. It’s not about Brexit either. #BoycottBBCQT

So much misinformation, if I missed something let me know.

1. The ruling has no basis in law?
This is deep reading, not Daily Mail. But it's neutral…

2. More elite manipulation (⏬Brexiter Spectator)…
3. Judges Got involved in Politics
Yes, BECAUSE politics trampled on the law

"If you do something sufficiently shocking, expect a vindication" of our flexible constitution to push the boundaries out. That is exactly what UKSC has done Lord Sumption

Or simply...⏬
And see 3,⏫

I've got about 10 of these from yesterday and didn't even try⏬

4. The Government should push on and have GE/Queen's/Speech etc.

Governments loses cases on judicial review all the time.. so what makes yesterday's #supremecourtruling so special - its not that it found ministers acted unlawfully

The Government's reasons did not hold up - they could have explained why it takes this govt a 5 week break to prepare a Queens Speech (whereas other govts can do it with a few days) - but they chose not to

1/5 Thread****

When was Farage at CPAC last year?

What announcement did he make following it?

What did he create before the EU elections?

Are those who paid the £25 Members or supporters?

What is the difference & why is this relevant?

What is the name of his party?

What purpose would it serve after Brexit is delivered?

When & how many times has Farage met with Boris or his team since returning from CPAC?

Think logically, if you were to take power in the UK would it be via the Conservatives with May neutralised & Boris popular or

try to engineer an election while simultaneously attempt to get the entire Conservative party to step aside?

Why would Boris distance himself from Farage if a pact was already in place (if necessary)?

Are the left able to come together & form a coalition in an election?
