Here's an article about my coining of the word #brexit. See how the tragedy stems from the British political establishment's failure at any time to champion the fact that Britain was the leading power in the EU. 1/ I'm a Liverpool supporter. Imagine if all our supporters were told by Klopp that the team wasn't in fact top of the league but near the bottom.

Been saying it for a while: forget a GNU and forget a Lab anti no deal gvmt.

1/ Party opportunism will trump doing the right thing say two of the most depressing but truthful comments of the day from @Peston and @lewis_goodall…… 2/The parties are all falling into the @BorisJohnson trap. A GE beats his enemies when at their most divided, unlike a ref.

This ignores the fact that it is leaving the #singlemarket that is the killer for business making, importing or exporting products. Why? A thread.. 2/ Much of the commercial debate around #Brexit has focused on whether we stay in the #CustomsUnion or not. That is because this is the current battle between #Conservatives and #Labour. If Labour prevailed, and the UK remains in a Customs Union, then the tariff issue dies

Farmers face the biggest Brexit hit and still they don’t think they need to worry! THREAD
In a grim report published on Friday, the #government Agricultural, Horticultural and Development Board @TheAHDB predicted that post-Brexit #farming incomes would fall by 25%. @FarmingUK /1 This wasn’t just in an apocalyptic #NoDeal scenario. If it was, farmers seeing this figure could mutter Project Fear and carry on their arduous work. The problem is that this collapse occurs IN ANY BREXIT SCENARIO @bbcfarmingtoday. /2
