1) long but absolutely vital speech on #Brexit by Sir Ivan Rogers

Something for everyone, especially the charlatans in the ERG & Labour's front bench…
2) for the ERG, @DavidDavisMP and others this, the central lunacy in saying WTO is fine whilst also arguing that we need to leave the EU to strike up new trade deals

It's bonkers - if WTO is OK, why do we need to leave so we can negotiate new trade deals to avoid WTO?
@DavidDavisMP 3) for @Keir_Starmer, @jeremycorbyn, @AngelaRayner and others, it's just a straight out lie to say Labour could get a better trade deal than the one EU27 have, whether it's in 3 months or 3 years so a General election is utterly pointless
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner 4) the speech just generally calls from honesty in our politicians if we are to get through this. Is this really too much to ask?
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner 5) is it really too much to ask that @DavidDavisMP admits "this was a lot harder than we thought, for Brexit to be meaningful we all have to accept it will be very painful, and we can't solve the Irish Border so there will be a backstop"?
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner 6) is it really so hard for @theresa_may to say "yes, it's a compromised deal but if you want out of the EU with reduced economic damage this is it. However, to drop FoM, which I believe was the priority for the Victors, I had to drop services as well, so theres an impact"?
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 7) and above all, should we not expect @Keir_Starmer to admit "no, we can't get a better deal, not if we want to drop FoM as well, and anyway there's no time. There are now 3 options. No deal we cannot support nor May's deal, so the only option is a #PeoplesVote"
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 8) these are the options. If we don't pick one MPs will be forced to #RevokeA50 in a panic in March and that is not an ideal prospect.

But Labour FB, Tory & Tory ERG MPs need to take a good look at themselves, at what they came into politics for & what is their duty
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 9) ultimately we are in this #Brexit mess for one reason. Politicians lied to the public, for years.

We still in this mess because Labour Front Bench, Tory FB & the ERG *continue* to lie to people, on every aspect of Brexit
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 10) everyone, Leavers or Remainers, should spend the time to read this speech. And then look to their MPs in the Labour & Tory parties and ask themselves "if this is true, then either you are incompetent or lying to me, why?"…
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 11) when ERG MPs say "a managed no deal is perfectly fine" the actual statement is not only a lie, it doesn't make sense - how can you have a no deal that is actually a managed process?

And no country in the world trades only on WTO
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 12) May's deal is actually a real thing, but it is *not* a Brexit deal. Its an end Free Movement deal which throws out 80% of our economy in services & is Brexit in name only for Goods.
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 13) and finally Labour. They are sad to say the worst of the 3. When they say "we can get a better deal outside than those inside" it's a an outrageous & irresponsible lie, the same lie that Vote Leave used to get us here in the first place
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 14) Labour is currently the most tragic, the biggest betrayal of all. At least the ERG and even May have some of their voters behind them.

Labour's position is a fantasy, a deliberate fabrication when it's members are crying out for a #PeoplesVote
@DavidDavisMP @Keir_Starmer @jeremycorbyn @AngelaRayner @theresa_may 15) but worse, Labour's "Vote Leave" style unicorn position keeps alive the lie that a significantly better deal is available if we just try hard enough.
It's worse than just sitting on the sidelines, it's actively colluding in the central deception of Brexit
