It's time we stop asking about FIRING of ministers who've broken the law or the ministerial code...

And start asking why, with 365 Tory MPs to choose from, so many law-breakers get HIRED in the first place! Nadhim Zahawi:

Tax fraud

Does ANYONE think this is a coincidence?

We are now constantly discussing whether a free* NHS is financially sustainable, after 3 years of the Tories literally stealing billions from the NHS budget via dodgy contracts.

WEIRD, HUH! 🤯 So weird...

We've all been debating the role Brexit is playing in GDP & trade figures for 2 years now.

But while *we* can PHYSICALLY point to the ways Brexit has made trade more expensive👉🏿paperwork, border checks...

What can Brexiters point to, to say this is HOW Brexit has helped? It's why they accuse us of being biased with positive data. "#DespiteBrexit"

When we see a positive change in trade and don't accept that it's a Brexit success... That's because it would be nonsense to conclude that having more barriers to trade can ever be a positive for trade.

Laura Kuenssberg: Maybe social care would improve is care workers weren't struggling on £18,000 / year.

Rishi Sunak: What if we gave them a SENSE that they're being paid more?

#BBCLauraK: Would you work for £18,000?

Rishi Sunak: Look Laura! My job actually matters!! If* they weren't struggling...

Every medical body in the UK said Brexit would damage the NHS. And now they've been proven right.

We're literally talking about life and death.

Some people are sharing a story of the 4 MEPs charged with corruption, as if it justifies Brexit. 🙄😬

A) They were ACTUALLY arrested over €600,000. Tory Lord Michelle Mone pocketed £29 million and is still at large!
B) None of it cancels out the £100 billion Brexit has cost. Every time you interpret any flaw in the EU as automatically justifying Brexit, you make it that much harder to not call you stupid.

And I mean that literally... Because that kind of binary thinking means you literally can't process complex concepts.

Have Harry & Meghan ever actually hurt people in the UK?

Have they ever deprived poor kids of school meals? Cut people's benefits? Sent covid patients into care homes? Crashed the economy?

So why is there MORE hatred for them than the politicians who did?
#HarryAndMeghanNetflix i.e.

Harry and Meghan are just celebrities.

Most people assume celebrities are spoiled asshole...
But nobody hates them for it.

So what is it about the first bi-racial couple in the Royal Family that makes them more hated than the MPs who are driving millions into poverty?

I tried to avoid using the word "stupid" before 2019 because there's a reason why European Law is a whole course at university.
e.g. You can be a brain surgeon and not know what the Single Market is.

But I'll start keeping THREAD of Brexit arguments that are objectively stupid: "The news must show the pros & cons of Brexit equally."

‼️STUPID‼️

Even the BBC only admitted they should've covered businesses "less negatively impacted".

Brexit has objectively damaged our economy.

So saying the pros & cons are equal would be LYING!

Was just doing some research on pre-referendum Nigel Farage and saw these tweets were put out one after the other.

12.22: EU immigration makes us less safe

15.11: I'm horrified that someone killed an MP, because they believed EU immigration made us less safe.
@Nigel_Farage Nigel Farage promised that Brexit would deliver £2-3 billion every year for the fishing industry.
(to the tune of Pirates of the Caribbean for some reason)

But the fishing industry says it's costing them £300 million over 5 years.

The main effect of private schools is to give rich kids an advantage over the poorer kids.

They are tools of inequality, ensuring social injustice.

Does that sound like "charity" to you?!!?

No? Then they shouldn't have 'charitable status' or the tax breaks that come with it. Trolls saying "Femi, you went to private school" in 3, 2...

That's where I learned there are 2 types of privilege:

1️⃣ thinks it deserves it
2️⃣ knows it doesn't

The advantages it gave me weren't deserved and DEFINITELY shouldn't effectively be state subsidised as charity.

Can we please put the "4000 fewer doctors due to Brexit" story in context?

Our main weakness in the pandemic was STAFF shortage, not beds.

Shutting the economy to prevent NHS overload was therefore based on staff.

That puts avoidable Covid deaths AND economic damage on Brexit! Guardian Article: theguardian.com/society/2022/n…

Stop attacking Rishi Sunak for being rich!

Being rich doesn't make him a ****.

Consistently cutting benefits makes him a ****.

Bragging about defunding poor areas for rich ones makes him a ****.

Being 100x richer than those he's hurting just rubs salt in the wound!
#bbcqt Every time you attack his wealth, instead of his actions, you give the Tories an open goal to say "Lefties just hate ambition. They're obsessed with the politics of envy".

There are SO MANY easy targets to hit on Rishi Sunak. Why help him play the victim!!

Would it make any sense to spend 2016-21 debating Brexit, if we weren't all certain the consequences would last much longer than 5 years?

The only people telling you Brexit is yesterday's news are the ones trying to avoid responsibility for the damage.

They're gaslighting you! I mean let's just look at the last 7 days...

The last 3 Tory Prime Ministers ALL campaigned against Brexit at some point, because they know it makes people poorer, and yet NONE of them had the moral integrity to say so when they had the power to do something about it. This is what @BorisJohnson REALLY thought about the effects of being in the EU Single Market.

If the UK had a functioning news system...

"Lead Brexit MP refuses to answer whether Brexit has made people poorer NINE TIMES"

Would be headline news. And yet... 🤔 This is video is the culmination of 6 years of economy-crippling lies... But have you seen it on any news channels?

Michael Gove knows he lied about Brexit, and now that it's added to the poverty of millions of people... all he can do is grin, dodge and gloat about winning.
