If you read one thing about #Brexit today - make it this thread...

EU labour standards underpin majority of labour standards in the UK. They're implemented/protected in the UK because they are required to be by law BUT it’s not just their existence that's important...⬇️
It’s also the progressive way those rights have been interpreted, the requirements for effective and dissuasive sanctions and the requirements for individuals to be able to enforce them. Workers’ rights underpinned by EU law standards include: ⬇️
The fact that these rights are so important is demonstrated by the efforts of Conservative governments to resist them - e.g. resistance to the Acquired Rights Directive, Working Time Directive, Collective Redundancies Directive & Agency Workers Directive. #WorkersRights #Brexit

Today we joined other groups from Berkshire & the rest of Britain (as well as some from further afield) for the #FinalSayForAll march.
It was brilliant - the weather was good, the atmosphere was amazing, the speeches at the end were memorable.

Assembling at the start of the march.
A lot of time must have gone into making this pub sign placard.

The question today is a simple one: do you trust the Tories with our rights at work? Do you trust them with our NHS? With standards to protect consumers and the environment? #youcanttrustthetories #VoteDownTheDeal
Boris Johnson, 2012 "scrap the Social Chapter", Boris Johnson, 2019 "trust me with your rights at work".
We all know their record on rights at work. Since 2010? Unfair dismissal rights watered down, the Trade Union Act, loss of consultation rights on mass redundancies, tribunal fees and much more. They've literally written the book on it.

I can’t march with you in person today. One day I will tell you why exactly, but in the meantime I want to march with you in spirit. And I want to do so as a proud foreign c❤️nt. Why? Because it’s what Brexiters have called me well over 2,000 times since 2016. #PeoplesVoteMarch
Yes, I counted 🤓 I know that not all will understand why I’d wear the t-shirt. Some will say it’s inappropriate. But here’s the thing: I didn’t choose to read/hear that I’m a foreign c*nt over 2,000 times in 3+ years (& much worse things). I didn’t choose this hate. It came.
And that is why I’m simply not prepared to pretend that it doesn’t exist. It does exist. It’s bad. It’s also what Brexit looks like. And people need to know. That’s why it’s so great that I can make one choice ...

Using my time on the Eurostar to London for "Super Saturday" to make the latest #BrexitDiagram V30

This one covers the impact of the Letwin Amendment and how that impacts overall #Brexit outcomes

This is really important - as I explain in the thread
All the media focus has been on how MPs will vote on the Deal Johnson got in Brussels - and #VoteDownTheDeal

However something else - the Letwin Amendment - is actually more important to the outcome now
The Letwin Amendment means the UK has to request an #Article50 Extension *anyway*, buying time for the Commons and Lords to scrutinise the Deal

But other things - notably the vote on the Queen's Speech - happen during this period, and that poses problems for the Government

What has the EU done for You? Our EU membership has put us at the heart of Europe for 40 years and together with our partners we have created thousands of initiatives and programmes which benefit all all us. Thread/. #ch4eu #FBPE
I want to tell you about a resource you can access which allows you to look at the multitude of ways in which the EU helps us in our lives together as EU citizens. I have pulled out a handful of examples to show you but there are hundreds of documents on the link
Many regions in the UK have had money back from the EU budget in order to support projects which benefit local residents or the local economy. In the website you can search your own region and there are links to further detail but here are some examples from the North West.
