It's just chicken & turkey.
It's just milkshake.
It's just cancer drugs in Northern Ireland.
It's just fishing.
It's just Erasmus.
It's just Belfast violence & port threats.
It's just 7K bank jobs.
It's just trade.
It's just farmers.
It's just musicians.

It's just been 8 months!
Obviously I can back all that up. Sources:

The @BritishPoultry Council have said that the Chicken Shortages in Nando's and KFC and Tesco's warnings about Christmas turkeys are because of Brexit.

As for the lack of milkshake and other issues...

The Road Haulage Association has cited Brexit labour shortages as the number 1 barrier to fixing the shortages.


As for the cancer drugs in Northern Ireland...
You may not trust me, but you voted for this guy, so listen to him.
As for fishing...

Just google "fishing express.co.uk Brexit" and you'll see an article about fishing workers complaining about Brexit every week.

Port staff at the newly hardened Irish Sea border have received threats of violence.
As of April 2021...
7,400 banking jobs lost from the City of London.
As for Erasmus...
Boris Johnson accused MP @DougChapmanSNP of lying when saying Brexit might rob UK students of Erasmus, then he robbed UK students of Erasmus.
As for trade, it's the smaller businesses that have suffered the most.

1/4 small UK exporters have simply stopped trading.

That's why since 2020, the Federation of Small Business has been begging the government to provide a functional SME Brexit support fund.
"It's about British citizens taking up citizens in other countries because their career opportunities are so limited compared to what they were."

Remember how the BBC told us to just get over Brexit?

Now they're publishing articles that clearly show Brexit making the British people poorer, but they refuse to even mention the word themselves*. Image
Could it be because the @BBC was biased in favour of Brexit from 2017-2019 so now they're hiding their responsibility for the disaster they can see resulting from their propaganda?
Like the under-30s #Bbcqt just before the election, when it was crucial for old voters to hear that those most affected didn't want Brexit.

The chosen audience was 50% Leave despite 70% of <30s being Remain, BUT THEN they skewed it to the Tories just because it was in England.

You don't say, @JuliaHB1... 😬
If only she'd realised that in 2016.
Someone put this on the side of a bus, now!

Who does Boris Johnson blame for the fact that he lied about National Insurance and Social Care?

People 'deciding' not to have their operations while he was 'letting the bodies pile high'.

The 2008 Risk Register showed the government that they needed to prepare for a pandemic.

The UK has voted for parties to the left of the Tories in all but 3 elections since WW2 and yet the Tories have been in power for 46 of the last 76 years.

So our government has been more Right-Wing than the majority of UK voters for most of a lifetime!

1945 Election vote share:

Labour - 48% ✅
Liberal - 9%
Conservative - 36%

Clear left-wing vote lean.
1950 Election vote share:

Labour - 46% ✅
Liberal - 9%
Conservative - 43%

Clear left-wing vote lean.

Jordan Peterson & Ben Shapiro etc keep denying the gender pay gap saying women are naturally drawn / suited to lower paid roles. e.g maternity...(see tweet 3)

But they never complete that thought: That it's acceptable for women to generally have less financial power than men.
I just watched this video where Shapiro argues that maternity is such a blessing that women should chose it over a job.

Weird how that's not coupled with any sort of plan to rebalance the economy in favour of mothers: "You mothers are heroes but you don't deserve actual money!"
Not only do these people ignore the fact they're part of the very propaganda that deprives women of access to higher paid jobs... But they praise lower paid roles which are essential to the functioning of society but have no intention of paying the real value of that labour.
