Completely rubbish. It's the UK who want to break ties with the EU and have no intention to get a deal. May actually negiotiated a decent compromise solution over which Johnson resigned. He then negotiated a worse solution and now blames the EU for HIS idea. (1/4)
Now the Tories blame the EU over a deal that Johnson negiotiated, kicked MPs who were against it out of the party for and won a GE on the promise of implementing that deal. Reality is that they want to leave the Single Market & Customs Union. (2/4)
That means there HAS to be a hard border. If we fall back on WTO terms, a hard border is compulsory as it's written in the WTO rules. A hard border on the island of Ireland violates the GFA, so the only way to prevent that is a border in the Irish sea. (3/4)
It's disingenuous to claim we can have an open border in the Irish Sea AND between NI/ROI. It's one or the other.

I intended to step back from political Twitter, but these government lies make me angry. They are happy to risk NI peace for political reasons, sickening! (4/4)

I see a lot of posts about voting SNP 1 & ISP 2 for the GE. This simply won't work. The best route to indy is #BothvotesSNP. In this thread I'll explain my reasoning. (1/14)
It's very unlikely the ISP will get enough votes to win any seats themselves, yet they can take away seats from the SNP. Splitting the vote SNP/Green in 2016 cost the SNP a few list seats, including here in the North East. There would have been an SNP majority if it weren’t (2)
for that vote splitting. It will definitely not work to split the pro-indy vote between even more parties.

The electoral system for Holyrood elections is a proportional one. It's been designed so that the parties get roughly the same proportion of the seats as the (3)
