Since May's fateful appointment & her 'Brexit means Brexit' this has always been OUT v IN. Talk of deals is fantasy. We should vote IN asap!
.@KenClarkeMP apart, Tory MPs voted #A50 trigger (Mar17) to appease #Brexiteers untroubled by unseen cost/impact assessments or exit plans.
7 months down their rocky road to nowheresville, that #A50 trigger is looking like the most ill-judged & stupid parliamentary decision ever!
Post failed GE, propped by incomplete DUP deal, riven by MP sex scandals and impact assessments neither read nor understood, UK is in chaos!
Nearing the Budget, which will be read/understood & subjected to OBR/IFS review, even sex-mad MPs will have to get handsy with hard facts.
May's misjudgements since #Euref must make it inconceivable for shredded remnants of Commons (& Lords) to frank the EU Repeal Bill in time?
If close call, flawed, misled #Euref vote was not bad enough! the subsequent unsequenced, chaotic & planless process is totally disgraceful!
Despite pub talk that 'we can do better outside EU' there's NO PLAN to that effect? Even Leavers believe it will cost UK dearly to exit EU!
Biz #Brexodus began frm #A50 but there are many still sitting on their hands with a calculated view that #exitfrombrexit will surely emerge?
HMG can't unite on ANY Brexit Plan/Deal that EU would be likely to agree, so now its putting investment? into No Deal? as damage limitation?
UK's #Brexit fail fiasco is a perfect paradigm of what not to do and how not to do it. #exitfrombrexit IS the least bad path now available.
.@acgrayling today: #A50 IS revocable + D.Tusk has left door open for UK. Is HMG insane enough to put even more resource into a madcap exit?
Just imagine pushing through a madcap concept that neither your heart nor head nor any expert believes in? There, but for the grace of God!
UK now in huge cash mess thanks to rash decision-making & lack of planning. Money moves, and drags public opinion with it, sooner or later!
Good for @KenClarkeMP @Andrew_Adonis @nick_clegg to review UK options with EU. Although we're in a State it is not of the one-party variety!
know #Brexit is unaffordable! Growing #Brexodus Falling #Taxtake Excessive #Borrowing Reduced #Confidence = #Remain
Independent studies have been showing for some time that #Brexit is unaffordable, ie 'unfundable' without extreme financial pain for the UK!
UK export risks of quitting our nearest & by far largest trade bloc of EU partner nations would have to be worth it in NET terms? It isn't!
Trade experts agree that geographic proximity is THE crucial factor in driving job-creating export opportunities. EU is UK's 'home market'!
Thanks @ChrisGiles_ for sharing the @bankofengland analysis, regarding today's rate rise, which is well rationalised and of course correct!
When finance professionals do their jobs well, they'll inevitably be attacked by amateurs who've never done any job well. It's inevitable!
I commend @IanDunt @ThatTimWalker @GuitarMoog @tony_nog @realVickyPryce for bringing valid content to their warnings about #Brexit dangers!
People backing #Remain do so believing it to be in the best long-term interests of ALL in the UK. This is neither personal nor undemocratic!
We're seeing growing cross-party & voter support for NOT financially impoverishing the UK any more than the last 18 mths have! Why is that?
Because voters were misled to believe that (eg) NHS would be better off if UK left EU, and nobody would be worse off! Such an insane thesis!
£ down, Inflation up, Incomes flat, Jobs riskier, Mortgages rising, Govt/Personal debt high, NHS in crisis, Taxtake threat from #Brexodus!
Above start point is a hugely weak one from which to take us out of the single market and into trade & jobs oblivion & economic/admin chaos!
Per @Peston today, interest rate rise (forced by brexit-induced inflation) is a hugely significant development given UK's weak start point!
If we could rely on government to look after the national interest, wouldn't that be good? Right now, their self-interest is key! @mrjamesob
If there is anyone who believes that UK is being well served by our present Govt, please explain why? to those who feel so badly let down!
has put huge effort into exposing the sheer insanity of Brexit in the NATIONAL INTEREST of the UK. MPs used to cover 'that base'!
has also put huge effort into stopping this insane Brexit! Why? Because he cares about ALL who live & work here! WE fund it!
Voted IN 1975+2016, & worked in London from 1969, nationally since, so have a perspective on the UK that some lack. It was NOT great, then!
Brexit is already 'totally undone' via the inescapable FACT that it's NOT do-able without gross ££s pain for the UK, for which NOBODY voted.
you are officially inducted into the Hall of Fame of those fighting irrational insane Brexit. We salute your persistent efforts!
Public opinion & econ-reality have changed hugely since #Euref. In today's fast-changing world 'relating back' no longer 'defines democracy'
Thanks so much @tony_nog for all your work on Brexit, and for kindly acknowledging my efforts to 'support the supporters' on here.
Huge thanks to @nickreeves9876 for all your efforts re Brexit, and for kindly acknowleding my attempts to 'support the supporters' on here!
DO continue to speak out, as YOU see fit! That IS the role of a serious MP in a proper Parliamentary Democracy. Any others?
It's extremely important that ALL MPs speak out AND vote as THEY see fit, rather than as dictated by party whips. We demand this of them!
No one exists to save the Tory Party! They are in government to look after the entire UK, not just the misled 37%. Not our job to save them!
Prof Tanja has done much to highlight plight of EU nationals in the UK lacking due rights & recognition. She deserves support!
has been a supporter throughout the tough process of fighting irrational brexit! We honour his contribution, and ask for more!
- you are SO special in the fight against this mad #Brexit that mere words simply can't describe! Thank you! Do not give up!
Brexit is a self-inflicted wound! No external party did this to US, though some meddled. WE need to stop the bleed NOW, before its too late!
Andrew Parnell, Huge thanks for your persistence in righting the wrong of Brexit. As @dontbrexitfixit aptly states, we have SO much to fix!
If a major decision proves 'undeliverable' there's every justification for putting ones hands up and saying so. UK needs #exitfrombrexit NOW
got us into the #brexitshambles! I suggest THEY work on a plan to reverse the damage, rather than compound it. Time is money!
Tired of those who crave top job but can't 'lead' when it lands. Leadership is about tough decisions, like #exitfrombrexit, if right for UK.
leadership has been a big disappointment over Brexit. At odds with most of their voters, MPs & TUC + they're keeping May in power!
is wrong re Brexit. That was 'then'. New facts have emerged! 250k+ who voted #Leave are already dead. Ruled from grave? No!
is however on the money re Brexit! His warnings in 'The State We're In' were not heeded; His views on Brexit MUST be noted!
As mooted by @vincecable UK politicians must be open to a progressive alliance to deal with huge problems caused by past party/policy fails!
#Euref+18mths: HMG stuck in kamikaze mode, racking up debt, taking UK further downwards v global economic recovery (see G20 GDP table). Why?
Why? Coz HMG has saddled us with the moans of misled masses instead of properly planning for ALL poss. options prior to premature #A50 trig.
As @Undercover_mole notes, EU migration to UK is materially down, with huge risks to UK economy & services. Unintended consequences, again?
Flailing failing Govt remains significantly under-challenged by woefully out-of-touch Labour Leadership. Progressive Alliance NOW essential!
