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.
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?
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.
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!! #BBCqt

The word "globalist" has been an antisemitic dog-whistle for a while, but is anyone else seeing it get used more an more often in the last few months?

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.
