Just a reminder of how great our EU deal is. It’s really, really, really great. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Another great compilation, ‘Cheaper Food, Clothing and Footwear’, by the Victorian undertaker. 🤦🏻‍♂️
Of course, the European Research Group’s ‘Star Chamber’ 😬🤦🏻‍♂️🤣😱 said it was a good deal so all their years of not doing any European research of any kind really paid off there. #BrexitShambles #idiocracy #ToryBrexitDisaster
But seriously, it’s a great great deal. An excellent deal, even.
It’s now abundantly clear, (as it always was, but never more so than this eve), that the best deal for Britain involves it being a full member of the EU. And that deep down all but the most fantastically deluded Brexiteers know this too. Their pride is going to cost the UK dearly
The only thing Truss was ever right about was when she gave many long speeches about why we should Remain; then, as soon as the referendum was done she abandoned her principles & ran off to enjoy power, which means she now has to say silly things she doesn’t mean all the time. 🤦🏻‍♂️
Oh god we’re all going to freeze to death.
There is no need to renegotiate our deal, because it was oven ready and a great deal. Everyone said it was a great deal, all Tory MPs signed an oath of allegiance to it, so it must have been a really very great great deal indeed. And as you can see, it is going really well.

Britain is the Basil Fawlty of the world, without any of the clever lines. The EU is Sybil.

Southern Water’s handy map of everywhere they have pumped raw sewage into the sea in the last 24 hours because during heavy rain they’d rather be fined for that than invest in actual solutions. It’s the whole southeastern coastline, basically. We’re surrounded by shit.
Oh yes, I’d forgotten this. Just perfect.

I am reporting this to the International War Crimes Tribunal
There’s more. 👀

I’ve worked in sustainability for 23 years, talking to large companies & campaigners daily.

No one serious has questioned the scale of the problem for years on end now, but I’m still not convinced the absolute, critical urgency of it has landed. Even with some of the NGOs. 1/
We need to treat the #IPCCReport science as an explosive device that needs immediate disabling, instead of viewing it as a guide map from which we can deviate or against which we can adjust our speed. We simply can’t.

Of course too many companies still put short term profit ahead of long term losses, which are inevitable if they don’t change, but someone else’s problem. But also too many turf wars between NGOs, which plays right into the wrong hands. We have to get better at this, immediately.

But you’re annoyed that @ExtinctionR is going to be blocking some roads in London again. Makes sense.

Today’s disaster is the death of more than 20 people in Hubei Province, China.
#IPCCReport #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #extinction
The aftermath of the #evia #Greecewildfires. Mile after mile of dead nature, covered in dusty ash. The ghostly evidence of admiring the climate problem for decades instead of acting on it.

Unfortunately, positioning the UK's leadership role on the global climate stage by suggesting British people rinse plates before putting them in the dishwasher and freeze bread is what I've come to expect from this waffly, trivialising, badly run government. Puerile, silly PR 1/
It also reminds me that one of the cancers in this country is the belief we're the centre of the world. If people had worked, studied & generally experienced more international culture, they'd know how, especially post #Brexit, absolutely marginal and irrelevant we've become 2/
Does the US look to the UK in the way it used to? No, it looks to Europe. South America to China. Australia to Asia. The EU, to everywhere but Britain. Our silly painted planes & trade yachts make us look even smaller than we already are. But freeze your bread, it'll last longer.
