Batshit crazy!
Liz Truss: "Britain's comparative economic advantage lies in providing digital and financial services to fast-growing Asian economies."

But they could have done that anyway, without leaving the Single Market for Services of the EU!…
Here's some info on the EU's Single Market for Digital Services, which was finalised about a year before the Brexit vote. Britain has now left the joint project in order to "go it alone".…
Here are the 3 Pillars of the EU's Single Market for Digital Services. The strategy has already provided benefits such as the end of geo-blocking and roaming charges, harmonising cross-border postal deliveries, and simplifying platform to business regs and VAT registration.
So for the record:
Liz Truss thinks we can leave the EU's Digital Single Market and compensate for that by selling British digital services to the digital powerhouses of Asia ... despite us having been so incompetent at it that we spaffed away £29 billion on one Track & Trace app

"When exports account for 30% of Britain’s GDP, and UK-based exporters are struggling to make headway in a world where trade is now booming, it bodes ill for the nation’s economic health over the next year and many more to come."…
"The UK enjoyed 13% of all European foreign direct investment in manufacturing in 2015. That's now down to just over 8%. These investments once put the UK at the heart of a European factory network. But no longer."
"Brexit is beginning to take its toll. Trade with the EU is suffering and foreign investment is heading south. Neither trend is temporary. Brexit is bad for exporters. And not just for today and tomorrow, but for a very long time."

FFS !!!
l've just read that Hancock's married aide, Gina Coladangelo, is actually a "millionaire lobbyist" 😠 WTF is a millionaire lobbyist doing working as an assistant to a minister ...??? 😡😡😡
Here's a screenshot from the mirror article. I've been careful not to include pics of Hancock's wife or Coladangelo's husband, as they presumeably didn't ask for this sh*t.
I've been told that Gina Coladangelo's husband and brother received PPE contracts from the government. IS THIS TRUE???

If it's true that Gina Coladangelo got PPE contracts for her husband and brother by sleeping with Matt Hancock, there MUST be a criminal investigation.

We warned this would happen to British entertainment. I've already seen it starting in Germany. But it's not just about culture, it's also about funding.

"The EU is preparing to act against the disproportionate amount of British television and films shown in Europe after Brexit"
To give you an idea, here are just a few of the excellent French series that have appeared in Germany over the last year (where UK series used to dominate). There are also many shows from Spain, Italy, Scandinavia and other parts of Europen now being broadcast.

A thread for #WorldRefugeeDay

In case you missed it ...
During the refugee crisis, the city of Berlin alone welcomed four times as many Syrian refugees as the whole of Britain. Yet Brexiters still screamed that we were "full up!".

This is a pro-refugee poster from Germany which captured the feeling of the vast majority in the country. It's translation reads: "Arrived Alone, Moving Forward Together"

Here is the great poem "Refugees" by @brian_bilston. A story to be read two ways.
