There were 3 big revelations yesterday in UK politics (11/9/19).

With so much going on it’s easy to get distracted by just 1, but I argue these 3 must be considered together and what they add up to (THREAD).

This goes right to the heart of #Brexit and what is really going on.
The following revelations came to light on 11/9/19:
1) Operation #Yellowhammer document was published
2) Currency speculation with the Pound being shorted post 31st Oct, betting on Brexit happening on schedule and Sterling crashing.
3) Three judges ruled #Prorogation unlawful.
1) Operation #Yellowhammer document was published.

See excellent commentary from @lewis_goodall. Clearly #brexit by the governments own analysis would be deeply damaging in many ways. And there is wide suspicion this isn’t the worst case scenario.

@lewis_goodall 2) Currency speculation

In the event of Brexit happening the Pound is expected to fall in value, and those funding pro-Leave politicians have bet on that happening.

They stand to make millions if Brexit happens on time, so they have a vested interest:

@lewis_goodall 3) Three judges ruled #Prorogation unlawful.

Perhaps this shouldn’t be surprising. It was a widely discussed tactic to force through #brexit in the Tory leadership contest. But stymieing Parliament from voting isn’t what the #Prorogation device is for.

@lewis_goodall So, what do you get when you add all this up:

1) Those driving #brexit know by their own analysis it will be deeply damaging to the UK.
2) They have bet on the Pound crashing and stand to make millions from it.
3) They are willing to lie to us all & the Queen to make it happen.
@lewis_goodall This leads to some important conclusions.

1) People who voted for #brexit, whatever their reasons, should be in no doubt the super rich are driving it for their gain but to our loss.
2) The perpetrators belong in jail.
