Just spoke to mum back home in Holland over the phone to catch up. Had her hair done and blah blah blah. Oh, and her hairdresser had just been to England for a city brake with her 3 sisters.

Oh, I said. Where? Birmingham, she said. They had heard it was nice.

Oh, I said.

And, I asked? Terrible, mum said.

They were shocked at the poverty. So much poverty, and so bad. And then there was the dirt and the litter. So dirty. And the toilets in the restaurants were frankly disgusting.

@RussInCheshire They will & they certainly will. But it will do the UK little good. Because this Labour is going to be a 1 term government who will lose the first election after taking office.

Not because they will struggle, for the reasons you mention.

@RussInCheshire But because they will enter Downing Street with very worrying approval ratings for both the Labour Party itself and for their leader, and then struggle, fuck up and disappoint etc.

I have seen some pretty desperate stuff in @Telegraph, but this takes some beating. Deep down you must be so embarrassed writing stuff like this for a living @JamesCrisp6.

Look at this headline: it sound like these are new EU rules stealing swings from your sovereign kids!

1/ Image But of course they aren't. They are the same EU rules that the UK helped write and develop 20 years ago. Which actually is mentioned at the bottom of your article. But most Brexity folk won't read that far, just the headline will get their blood too boiling and job done.

Just to make this very clear, so everyone fully understands what is happening: we were given 3 main reasons for leaving the EU.

In no particular order, one was immigrants. All these EU queue jumpers everywhere was enough to drive a sovereign insane.


#BrexitHasFailed So we had to leave the EU to end FoM to control the inflow of these foreigners. And somehow have ended up with a record number of net migration not even achieved in the hay days of EU FoM: 606,000 just last year alone.

The NHS is dying before our eyes. Some thoughts on that. This is mostly on the Tories, but not just on the Tories.

Before the 2016 referendum, the NHS was struggling because of 5 years of Tory austerity.

1/ However, too many people believed the Tory / Vote Leave propaganda that was because of too many immigrants clogging the NHS, and money we had to divert from funding the NHS to "funding the EU".

And the MSM were very "balanced", and didn't do much to prove that was false.

UK democracy folks, where an out of control government has the power to force the House of Lords who hold them to account to sit all through the night.

Disgusting doesn't even start to describe these Tories. As a side note, these are the people @Keir_Starmer wants to get rid of for an elected 2nd chamber. Remember, the HoC is full of elected people like 30p Lee, Gullis, Truss, Dorries etc etc.

What ever could go wrong?

@Beany_1 The thing I find most depressing is that 14 years of crisis after crisis, from the finance crash to self-inflicted austerity to self-inflicted Brexit to Covid to Ukraine to the mini-budget, has destroyed the spirit & morale of this country and made everyone just so apathic.
@Beany_1 Lie after lie after lie. Scandal after scandal after scandal. Corruption, incompetence, indifference, gaslighting and more lies. And during that all, right after right after right is stolen, or severely diminished.

And almost nobody does something about it.

Isn't it remarkable that the larger the % of people & businesses who think #Brexit is going bad/was a mistake gets (now a significant majority), the louder @UKLabour shouts Brexit is done & should not be mentioned anymore, whilst committing itself to a very hard version of it?
Yes, Brexit got done insofar we left the EU, and that will not change. However, what Brexit will look like is not done. And it is not up to the Tories or Labour to decide what it will look like.

Brexit was promised to deliver control back to the people.

Gooooood morning Brexit Britain! Better fill up on that super nutritious sovereignty!

"Britain’s food and consumer goods industry uniquely exposed to current pressures due to a reliance on food imports and the impacts of EU exit."
1/… "The report says the new regime has added to costs through additional administration at the EU border and other legislation changes – as well as labour shortages prompting higher wages for farmers and food producers."

Hurrah for Brexit. Hurrah! Hurrah!

@AlStewartOBE @MichaelPiliOCod Dear god. Where to begin. The ECHR isn't a military organisation. It is a court that judges if members of the European Council who signed and ratified the European Convention of Human Rights are not violating it.

And guess what, Einstein.
@AlStewartOBE @MichaelPiliOCod Bosnia (and the other parties at war there) were not members of the European Council and had not signed up and ratified the European Convention on Human Rights at the time. So what you expect the ECHR could have done then, is not clear to me.

So now the Tories have attacked & blamed the clergy, the judiciary, teachers, the left, the elite, immigrants, "human rights" & all our direct neighbours. And the UK media still are scared to call it what it is.

You know who else attacked all of the above?
#FascistTories This is the latest Tory delight, for those who missed it.

I have so had it with the hypocrisy of the English (media). Today @BBCNewsnight was the final straw.

Tell me @KirstyWark, how is it possible that Macron, who got 58.5% of the vote, does not have a enthusiastic endorsement for him or his programme?

For 6 years we have been told that 52% of the vote was a great endorsement to take the whole country out of the EU. And even worse, Johnson only getting 43.6% apparently got an enormous mandate from the people to make Brexit as hard as possible and fuck half the population.

Just in case you aren't totally revolted by this government yet, read this. This is beyond sick, this is evil.

Some bits from the article:
1/… "The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he had dealt with numerous cases where UK visas had been issued for an entire Ukrainian family apart from one child, which in effect stopped the family travelling to the UK."

@emilyhewertson Ah, a challenge. Good, I do like a challenge in the morning Emily.

So, what benefits has the EU brought it member states in the last 2 years, compared to the UK?

Plain and simple, stability & protection from falling standards.

@emilyhewertson Let's start with this article about a report from the British Chambers of Commerce. It gives a very good idea of the benefits the EU has brought its members in the last 2 years if you compare it with us.

So, we are now 2 years out of the EU, and 1 year into Boris Johnson's fantastic cakist treaty no-one thought was possible (his own words).

So, how are we doing? This might come as a shock to some, but really not very well.

1/… Let's start with something really weird. Apparently our economy is going to surpass its pre-pandemic level over the next few months AGAIN. As we apparently already did so before in November last year.

There is something so incredibly sad about - arguably - one of the most eminent British journalists only a while back lying through his teeth about Brexit wins so far that wouldn't have been possible if we had remained in the EU:
1/ "Probably the biggest Brexit win was using our new-found independence to approve and procure Covid vaccines and start their roll-out, without waiting for the EU’s sluggish regulatory processes to grind into action."

"Please kind sirs, our students are British, they are different from other 3rd country kids and deserve to be prioritised!"

Anyway, this must be the world beating Turing scheme in action. Let's have a closer look, shall we?
1/… The Turing Scheme was hailed by the govt as being superior to the EU Erasmus scheme for those of poorer backgrounds.

"But until now it (studying abroad) has been an opportunity disproportionately enjoyed by those from the most privileged backgrounds."…

A great 🧵. And on top of all of this, Brexit Britain is making things even worse for itself as its ports are getting too congested because the lack of truck drivers means the containers that do make it here are not being picked up and are blocking everything.
1/ I read about that in a Dutch transport website, and tweeted it the other day. Will try and find back later. P&O were warning about it, and had told British ports they would reduce the number of days their containers are allowed to stay in the harbour for free from 6 to 4 days

Since moving to the UK, I have always missed the Netherlands. But lately it has become truly unbearable. And the reason might surprise people. It is not the beautiful historic cities and towns where you can stroll through for hours and hours. Yes, I do miss them, but.

It is not the wonderful bike lanes that you can cycle on through the countryside, safe from cars, from town to town, all the way from the north to the south and from the west to the east. Yes, I miss that too, but.

And then she went on later in the day to win gold on the 5,000 metres. The first Olympic gold in athletics for the Netherlands since Ellen van Langen in 1992. She came to the Netherlands as a 15 year old child from Ethiopia, and this is how she repays her new country
#sifanhassan This is the interview of Liemarvin Bonevacia. In Dutch, but you don't need to understand Dutch to know what he means, just look at the body language. Ik love Nederland. I love the Netherlands.…
