BREXIT 2013-2020 - A THREAD
(Including the Tragicomedy of Remain)

It’s taken 7 years from the first seeds of a referendum but now, finally, from 1/1/2021 we are free to chart our own path.

Here are some of the memories - the good, bad, ugly & more...

#ABrexitDiary

/1
23/1/2013 - David Cameron @ Bloomberg

We can’t expect the British people to keep accepting a European Settlement over which they’ve had little choice...
"that is why I’m in favour of having a referendum"

Well said Sir

BREXIT THREAD - British Fishing & The Referendum

All the talk has been about the fish, not the people who’s livelihoods depend on them. How did they vote in 2016? How will it effect the UK when we leave

Here’s the top 20 fishing ports by value of 1 month’s catch in Dec 2019 /1 No.1

Port: Peterhead
Fact: The largest fishing port in Europe
Constituency: Banff & Buchan
Party: Conservative
EURef: LEAVE - 61.38%
Council: Aberdeenshire
IndyRef: NO - 60.36%
Catch: £5.9m
News: Interested in becoming a Freeport after we leave

BREXIT THREAD - A FISH TAIL

So what’s all the fuss about? Best place to start is here:

"Under the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) the UK *ceded* control of fisheries within the UK Exclusive Economic Zone (UKEEZ) to the EU"

This is the crux of the matter. Why?

/1
In 2018 1.945m Tonnes of Fish & Shellfish were landed in the UKEEZ

By Fleet, in Tonnes

UK - 555,000 (29%)
EU27 - 860,000 (44%)
Other - 527,000 (27%)

71% landed by non-UK boats due to the CFP and/or European Commission agreements with 3rd countries

THREAD - This week @piersmorgan has been very vocal about righting the wrongs of Britain’s colonial past.

Ergo isn’t it only fair he also apologises for his ancestors’ involvement? Shouldn’t he take a knee on @GMB tomorrow & ask for forgiveness? Have a look and decide ⬇️ /1 Here are a few of Piers’ ancestors on his maternal grandmother’s side (note Piers was born O’Meara). We’ll concentrate on the red boxes. /2

With The Corbyn Experiment ending on Saturday it’s worth looking at what he is leaving behind & how/where it happened

In 12 charts I have plotted Labour’s GE performance & other things between 1918-2019

1/14 I’m adding here some people who may find this of interest

@Keir_Starmer @RLong_Bailey @lisanandy @PeoplesMomentum @UKLabour @jeremycorbyn

And others who will most likely care about it

This is a brilliant article from @MaxPemberton
Much of what he says about how the #NHS has miraculously transformed overnight confirms what many have been saying for years. It’s a salutary lesson & proves anything is possible in a crisis. "What doctors like me have witnessed over the past days and weeks is nothing short of extraordinary. A major incident was declared and within hours emergency plans had swung into action profoundly changing the way hospitals and services were run" /2

For a laugh I bought the @TheNewEuropean Special Edition titled "What Comes After Remain?"
It’s a bird’s eye view into the hearts & minds of the cultist #FBPE & many of the usual suspects are featured. It really is no wonder they seem to be permanently suicidal /1 Front page. I like Repent. They should definitely Repent /2

THREAD /1

#GE2019  gives us a once in a lifetime opportunity to elect a majority Brexit government. This is only possible if @conservatives & @brexitparty_uk form a #BrexitAlliance
This is my seat by seat guide to which party should stand where

#CombineTheLeaveVote #StatsGuide /2

I will add high priority seats first where the #BrexitAlliance is not the incumbent but the constituency voted to Leave. I will then add the rest

MINI THREAD - Next General Election

There are some mixed messages coming from #Boris on what sort of #Brexit he will deliver on October 31st.

Here's my perspective as a voter on what happens in 3 scenarios

#BrexitElection

/1
If GE is before 31/10 choice will be

1. @conservatives (featuring @brexitparty_uk)
2. @LibDems (featuring @UKLabour & @theSNP)

A Tory/Brexit Party pact would result in a Leave landslide everywhere outside London & Scotland. Lab wiped out in Mids & North

THREAD of LEGENDS

To mark #3Years since the largest vote for anything in the UK’s history let’s celebrate the MPs, who by their actions in Parliament, have kept our #Brexit dream alive. They are an elite band of #BrexitSpartans. Every one a #BrexitLegend

#TheBrexit40

1/14 In this majority Remain Parliament there are only 40 MPs (6%) who’ve fought, under sustained pressure, to uphold the will of the British people as expressed in #EURef2016

28 #Conservatives
10 #DUP
2 #Labour

Here they are below. Please give them a RT

THREAD (#EP2019)

Polling Day is upon us & here is a thread showing why ALL #Brexiteers need to turn out & cast their precious vote for the @brexitparty_uk
See a graphic breakdown by region of how the main parties have betrayed us. On Thursday it’s time to say no more 1/14 Key:

Green is Good - Red is Bad

#BrexitWrecker is an MP who voted for a 2nd Ref &/or to Revoke A50 - All Remain parties are full of them #Labour is by far the worst offender

#BrexitInbetweener is an MP who voted for May’s WA more than once

2018 has been a rough year for the EU and they’re probably very happy to see the back of it. So in the spirit of wishing Jean-Claude, Donald & Guy a Happy New Year for 2019 I thought I’d write a little to-do list for them /1

#StateOfTheEUnion #Brexit AUSTRIA

In Dec 17 the far right Freedom Party entered govt in coalition with OVP with a combined 58% (113 seats) of the vote. Austria became the only W. European country with a far right party in power. Combined they have 9/18 MEPs in @EUparliament & may get more in #EP2019 /2

Over the years a lot has been said about the UK’s relationship with Europe/EEC/EU. So much of it has been out of earshot of the electorate. Here is just some of what has been said /1

In 46 years the UK electorate has been allowed 2 votes on EEC/EU matters. Over the same period the EU has changed beyond recognition. Here are just some of the things no-one voted for /1
