1. @victorialive May's deal is terrible because it ends free movement for all 62 mn Brits many of whom rely on it without even realising. The UK economy is 80% services - that's roughly 26mn jobs. #victorialive

10:31 AM - 3 Dec 2018
2. @victorialive The UK exports many of these services to Europe based on free movement & single market membership. After transition, logistics providers, musicians etc will be severely restricted in terms of what they can do. Theresa May is not being honest #victorialive
3. @victorialive There are lots of things the UK could do to manage EU migration & still be in the EU. Ending free movement is going to be much worse for British people than for EU citizens & Theresa May is trying to pretend there will be no impact #victorialive

Down the 'Leavers of Britain' Rabbit Hole... a live thread: We believe that Leavers of Britain is an astroturf group, probably linked to Matt Elliott and or Steve Baker.
So the Leavers of Britain website makes it seem like a nice and fluffy grassroots organisation. But it is a company, registered at Companies House…
Leavers of Britain Registered office address
72 Albert Street, London, England, NW1 7NB. When we put this address into google, *Labour Leave* came up?

The annual cost to the NHS of securing all necessary visas and other documentation for its overseas staff post-Brexit (i.e. under the new immigration regime) is estimated at £490 million. 2/40…
Panasonic is moving its European HQ from the UK to Amsterdam (the legal aspects of the move were completed in October 2018, as the £200 million capitalised UK company was absorbed by Panasonic's Dutch entity). 3/40…

Steris PLC, a company with $2.6 billion in annual revenue, is planning to redomicile from the UK to Ireland due to Brexit. What that means is that, as an Irish company, the Irish tax authorities will collect its taxes going forward and not HMRC. 2/50
8 health providers have warned of medicine shortages in the event of a no-deal Brexit: "we do not believe that the current medicine supply plans will suffice, and we will have widespread shortages if we do not respond urgently." 3/50

The truth about Brexit, the "EU is punishing us" narrative & what "no deal" actually means... (1/19)

The EU isn't punishing the UK for Brexit. We are punishing ourselves. Losing all the benefits of EU membership IS punishment. Just like no longer being able to use the fitness equipment or the weights is punishment for quitting the local gym. 2/19
You might well put on weight because you cancelled your gym membership. But you wouldn't turn around and say "Hey, the gym's punishing me for leaving by making me fat!" That's the consequence of losing your gym membership, not the fault of the gym. 3/19

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

#BBCBias off the scale on #bbcbreakfast
The segment was about 4 minutes, the clip below is a short edit of a propaganda piece. No fact checking or asking for evidence by the presenter who clearly has her own agenda given this soft interview.
More details on this THREAD..
Bias highlights (1)
- Progress described as a “Labour think tank”. They’re NOT. They organise in Labour, have contributed to candidate slates in internal elections etc. And crucially have been vehemently against Corbyn from day one. No reference to this or questioning of motives
Bias highlights (2)
Progress person allowed to say:
- Labour has taken no action on anti semitism (this is patently false, why not questioned the way #VictoriaLIVE did?
- Bullying widespread through Labour. No asking for what basis or evidence there is for saying this.

Right so - I have seen, over and over and over again, trans excluding feminists treat with contempt, disdain, and disbelief the FACT that almost of half trans children attempt suicide and/or self harm. And they need to be called on it.
Terfs, as a rule, will rubbish, dismiss and disbelieve ANYTHING which humanises trans people. It is why they cling so vociferously to the pathologising framing of trans people, and particularly trans women, as mental degenerates. It is why they play UP anything which fits that..
framework (such as the outdated 'trans as mental illness model' as promoted by Blanchard for example). They NEED people to doubt anything which shows that trans people are just human beings, trying to live their lives. The last thing they want is for people to see that..
