Classic Lexist/Corbynist error here: wrong that all those who are angry at him for his support of Brexit are centrist - I identify as left-wing socialist & see Corbyn as betraying the cause - & if the left are angrier than the right are with him, shouldn’t that worry you??
The Corbynist insistence that anyone who disagrees with Jeremy on Brexit must therefore be a Blairite centrist is every bit as dishonest & ultimately self-defeating an act of self-delusion as the extreme Brexiters who insist that Brexit would be easy but for treacherous Remoaners
I’m left to join @TheGreenParty because @UKLabour were not radical enough for me & because I couldn’t support their anti-migrant lurch under Ed Miliband, but if I had remained in Labour I’d have voted for Corbyn, & boy how I would have regretted that error.
This is devastating stuff - the referendum result should not be allowed to stand - action has to be taken before it’s too late, which will be in less than five months from now. We all have to make maximum fuss - write to MPs, papers, protest, agitate.
Morning, Twitter. Have you written to your MP yet and asked them to raise in the House the criminal investigation into Arron Banks’ alleged electoral fraud? And ask whether the Article 50 clock will be stopped until that investigation is concluded? And if not why not?
People have been screaming about the exit of HSBC and UBS as sign of
bad economics. That's a huge lie. I will try to explain it in a very
simple way. HSBC and UBS were never set up for regular banking. When I say regular banking I mean retail banking.
They never ran salary
accounts; they were never set up to afford loans to customers etc.
Their sole purpose was to help customers who can afford their services
an easy way to transfer funds overseas.
English exceptionalism. We've seen a lot of that at work during the #Brexit debate. But have people noticed yet just how that plays when it comes to broader rights issues in respect of women and the entire LGBTI community?
Let's start over in Poland. earlier this month Poland blocked the EU signing off on Europe’s fundamental rights charter for a range of reasons including objections to the inclusion of LGBTI rights.
Just last week, following intervention from Poland's education Minister, many schools were forced to cancel activities designed to promote LGBT acceptance.
@phoenix_de@guyverhofstadt Die Bürgerrechte der @The3Million sowie @BritishInEurope finden trotz allem zu wenig Gewichtung! Die EU hat nur dann eine Zukunft, wenn sie sich weniger von Lobbygruppen&mächtigen Wirtschaftsunternehmen leiten lässt&ein Bürgerparlament installiert,das mit entscheidet&konrolliert!
THREAD (1) When the likes of Hannan feel the need to 'brush off' something so critical to the right-wing/neo-con #Brexit wet dream, we find digging a little deeper to be useful. After all, ground breaking 'shadow trade deals' with right-wing US think tanks is no small fish.
(2) In fact, given the growing negativity surrounding the #Brexit negotiations, compounded by the Govts' own damning economic analysis, one would have thought Hannan and Fox et al, would be shouting from the roof tops about their bespoke 'shadow US-UK trade deal.' Wouldn't you?
(3) The problem for our intrepid trade deal making duo, as almost always, is to be found in the detail; just what are, and who is, behind these neo-con US think tanks? Perhaps Daniel would enlighten us?
