I'm angry today, so I've decided to kill some unicorns. 1/
1st unicorn. The WA negotiations are over. They will not be reopened, not even for the Queen of Sheba. So the posturing from both the left and the right about getting a better deal is a waste of time and a meaningless distraction. 2/
2nd Unicorn. No deal means no deal. It doesn't mean we carry on as if the referendum never happened. It means economic and social devastation. Having reneged on our obligations, we'll struggle to make any deals with anyone, let alone ones that favour the UK. 3/
3rd Unicorn. FoM isn't an issue that needs solving. We benefit economically & socially from the human beings that have chosen to move to the UK,from the EU & ROW. Scapegoating immigration to excuse the result of domestic gov policies is short term thinking & won't end well. 4/
4th Unicorn. We won't win by repeating the mistakes of 2016. We won't win by emulating a campaign of lies. We need to offer something better, assertively and positively. Give people something to vote for rather than against. 5/
5th unicorn. "Remain and reform" is the wrong slogan. We need to remain and reform THE UK. Staying in the EU is only the beginning, but we need to be honest about how we've got to this point and every single one of us has to work towards eradicating the causes of brexit. 6/
6th unicorn. There's no such thing as a "managed no deal". Enough with the meaningless jargon. No one's buying that codswallop anymore. No deal means there's nothing to manage, apart from staying alive, if you need medicine to do that. 7/
7th unicorn. There is now a safety barrier between us and the cliff edge - unilateral revocation of A50. So the only way we can fall off that cliff, is if there is a decision to circumvent the safety barrier. Repeat after me: No deal would be a CHOICE not an accident. END
