A short thread on how we got to where we are:

#Tory Party 2015:

Those extremist Eurosceptics in my party need to be stopped.
I'll call a Referendum on Europe once and for all
I'm a winner, I've just won a GE no one expected & Scottish Indy campaign
I know how to win
#Tory Party 2016:

Leaver #Tories: Let's
Take Back Control
They need us more than they need us
Those German Car makers will get Merkel to give us a good deal
It'll be the easiest trade deal in the world

People: Ok - let's #Brexit

Cameron: I know I started this but I'm off
I'm here.
Strong and Stable.

There will be no General Election till 2020
We will be out of the Customs Union
We will not be under ECJ rule
I'll remove your rights to live & work in EU but I'll call it a good thing because Immigrants are bad
No deal is better than a bad deal

David Davis:
We will have a deal with the exact same benefits as we have

The Free Trade Agreement that we will do with EU should be the easiest in human history
#Tory Party 2017

May: We will trigger Article 50 to leave the EU
Brexit means Brexit
#Tories are totally divided over #Brexit
I have no plan
I want to have cake and eat cake
Let's start the clock!
#Tory Party 2017:

May: I am calling a GE so the people can give me a mandate for my #Brexit

The people:
No thanks

#Tories lose majority.
Gives £1 billion to the DUP so they'll support her to form government.
#Tory Party 2018

May: We have it, the best plan to leave the EU is.... Chequers!

Davis: Look, I know I haven't done much these last 2 years & even though I said it would be easy as pie, I'm off

Johnson: Crumbs! Is it time for me to go for leadership bid? I'm off too!
#Tory Party 2018

May: This is the best deal that is great for the UK and the British people.
We will have transition till 2020, where everything stays the same, only we don't have any say in any of the rules
It can be extended, once, but must be agreed by July 2020 with the EU
It will likely involve paying, to stay in the same place with no say on rules
But we won't have a deal by then so we will need it. Because we still don't know what we want
It can only last 2 years to 2022
In 2022 if no deal - we backstop
Backstop =
Abiding by rules with no say
Different rules for Northern Ireland
ECJ rules
I know I negotiated this because I'm #Brexit secretary but all that work I did, realising we are an Island and that a lot of trade goes through Dover, all excellent work, I can't support it.
I'm off.
Back my deal.
Brexiteers: No
Remainer Tories: No
Moderate Labour: No
Labour Leavers: No
Corbyn: Is it my time yet?

#Tory Brexiteers:
Go back to the EU and renegotiate

The vote is cancelled! I have no concrete plan for what's next
I'll go back to the EU
#Tory Brexiteers

We have no confidence in your leadership
We have 3 months to go till we #Brexit, we have no idea what's happening, now is the perfect time to have a leadership election

We are back full circle, an internal Tory battle with our country held hostage
