Our @BritishInEurope team is fine combing the withdrawal agreement now and we won't have a proper analysis or press statement until much later tonight or tomorrow morning.

But our first impressions about the #BrexitDeal and citizens' rights aren't positive.
2. In the meantime here is a short reminder of some of the issues facing @BritishInEurope and our hopes and concerns about the #BrexitDeal:
3. First a quick summary of what we were promised by #VoteLeave during the Referendum and how it was, for want of a better word, a load of porkies:

So #VoteLeave chair @GiselaStuart (who I note quit as an MP in 2017 rather than try and make brexit work) apparently said on @talkRADIO this morning that she believed there were no leave voters on the #PeoplesVoteMarch a couple of weeks ago.

Let's examine that.

So @GiselaStuart maybe you do not believe that #RemainerNow @Will_DryOFOC was at the #PeoplesVoteMarch. In fact he now works full time fighting #brexit with @OFOCBrexit & was one of the thousands of young people leading the march. Here he explains why

Or @GiselaStuart do you not 'believe' this little collage of evidence of leave voters @damidude @CharlesGallahe2, his brother, @hughnorris, @damidude @snoozette1 @MrsEmmaJK @andrewhardie3 all of whom are #RemainerNow &were at the #PeoplesVoteMarch on 20th Oct?

Louise feigns outrage at Nationalist propagandist Stefan Molyneux on #MAGABomber's TL. In the midst of Mensch’s #VoteLeave campaign, MP Jo Cox was murdered by Neo Nazi Tom Mair. Mensch ardently DEFENDED him & Molyneux praised her. Don't insult us with your outrage. #TruthMatters
Louise today on the arrest of the #MAGABomber a radical RW extremist & Trump supporter. Like the rest of Alt-right social media & FOX News Louise seeds doubt about the veracity of the story & the bomber's identity. Same as she did when Nazi Thomas Mair murdered UK MP Jo Cox.

(1) Here's a short, intriguing story that is bound to be of interest to some. It involves @shahmiruk, @darrengrimes_, @chrisinsilico and @carolecadwalla. Also, among many others, @matthew_elliott, Dominic Cummings and @DanielJHannan.......
(2) It's a strange tale of how a collection of powerful, right wing, ideological #Tories took it upon themselves to employ, manage and manipulate the young, ambitious, and impressionable. Eventually using them toward a means to an end that has been decades in the making.......
(3) Wait? You know this story already? #VoteLeave set up a 'fake' company for a couple of students.... etc. etc. etc. Yes, that is correct. Except this wasn't the first time those behind the Vote Leave campaign had set up a fake firm in the name of young activists......

Please take the time to listen & RT the hell out of trade negotiator @JasonJHunter taking @BrexitCentral editor @isaby to the cleaners on the catastrophic implications of a no deal #Brexit.

Isaby's deathly silence towards the end is something to behold:

@JasonJHunter - "This happens every day in international trade, the fact that you don't know what you're talking about doesn't do you any favours.....
@isaby -
For those unaware of Matthew Elliott's groom-of-the-stool, here's Jonathan Isaby "defending" his then deputy at BrexitCentral & #VoteLeave patsy, Darren Grimes, before Grimes was found to have broken electoral law by the @ElectoralCommUK in the #EURef:

@zelo_street Here's a story for you Tim..... Arron Banks' 'Better for the Country' 'donated' 100k to #VoteLeave spin off Veterans for Britain.......

(Oh, and Field Marshal Lord Guthrie fell off his horse at this years Trooping the Colour)
*correction:

100k from #VoteLeave
50k from Banks
@zelo_street @peterjukes @Byline_Media @PeterKGeoghegan @AdamRamsay @carolecadwalla @openDemocracy @chrisinsilico

*Correction to the correction

The @ElectoralCommUK does record £100k paid from Banks' 'Better for the Country' to VfB. Only it was made in two payments of £50k:

If you repudiate Trump's horrifying racist rhetoric, but endorse Louise Mensch, you are a hypocrite. Louise propagates the same racist talking points like in this FoxNews interview: Syrian refugees in EU are a "complete disaster, blood, chaos, carnage.”
indy100.com/article/louise…
For years Louise Mensch has perpetuated odious attacks like this one against immigrants/ Muslims/POC and has helped normalize this rhetoric. Louise Mensch is a politician and political operative who has helped pave the way for racists like Trump.
During her Brexit campaign, Louise Mensch RT the same (now banned) Hate Groups as Trump has because Neo Nazis spread the Bexit campaign fear mongering. If you endorseLouise as a hero & a leader & ignore her vile racist ideology, you are no different than a Trump apologist.

The stock statement in response to #Brexit petitions needs to be called out. "There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door, & no 2nd Ref" is fundamentally UNCONSTITUTIONAL as it binds Parliament and the People too.

/1.
Parliamentary sovereignty means one Parlt cannot bind another. This invalidates the "cannot reverse #Brexit" subtext of the above statement, as we've had a general election since #Article50 was triggered, so technically this is a different Parlt not bound by the previous one. /2.
The idea the People cannot speak again is ludicrous. It'd take a MAJORITY to #ExitFromBrexit. How is that undemocratic?Given the false prospectus on which #Brexit was sold, the chicanery & cheating of #VoteLeave & Brexit impact, it's the DUTY of Govt to give us #FinalSay Ref. /3.

1/ Liz it is not that you reported on Nigel & Jacob throwing some fish into the Thames. It’s that you did not also report on many many many more people marching against #Brext. The logic given for. It doing so does not add up.
2/ it is also that you did not raise critical & basic questions in regard to said stunt throwing of fish into the Thames. It is the total Government pro #Brexit. Has exhibited by @BBCNews in recent years.
3/ It is the sheer number of appearances by #Brexiters such as #farage versus #Remainers. It is the ambush mounted on @carolecadwalla by @AndrewMarr9 & #Brexstremjst guest

1/ Many of us are confused about what BeLeave actually is )or should we say, was). So we thought we would do some research. Most evidence of the group's existence seems to have been deleted from the internet?
2/ We did find this link however on the Vote Leave website describing BeLeave as a "Vote Leave outreach group" voteleavetakecontrol.org/outreach_group…
3/ But from there we hit some problems. The Facebook page [[facebook.com/BeLeaveBritain/]] seems to have been deleted.
