What is extraordinary about the Brexit talks is that 27 EU countries, and a parliament and a bureaucracy have negotiated with a single voice - under the leadership of @MichelBarnier - and the UK has negotiated as if it was the equivalent of 27 or perhaps 600 dissonant voices
‘Andrea Leadsom, the Leader of the Commons, warned that taking a no-deal Brexit off the table would be totally an incompetent thing to do.’ Incompetent indeed..
Now the lies have unravelled, this poll suggests 56% would vote Remain. We cannot ignore this sea change of public opinion. It would be a historic mistake and a democratic failure to push on with Brexit without checking whether the public still wants it..
My latest: post-Brexit vote, Britain has many options, all of them bad or impossible.
Jeremy Corbyn: “I want to meet and talk Brexit” Jeremy Corbyn: “I want to meet and talk Brexit” Jeremy Corbyn: “I want to meet and talk Brexit” Jeremy Corbyn: “I want to meet and talk Brexit” Theresa May: “Let’s meet and talk Brexit” Jeremy Corbyn: “No”.
At last Labour have some agency over the Brexit process. May cannot break the deadlock without Labour support. Appeals to the national interest are hollow while No Deal remains on the table. Removal has to be Labour’s price for entering talks..
It is not up to me, as a humble Belgian, to lecture Brits on what to do, but I think it’s time the national interest overtakes narrow party politics & cross party politics redefines the red lines imposed by hardliners in the Conservative party. We are ready for this. #Brexit.
I take note with regret of the outcome of the vote in the @HouseofCommons this evening. I urge the #UK to clarify its intentions as soon as possible. Time is almost up #Brexit.
@StewartLewis2 Yes, but I’m trying to not poison the well with what I actually want (Remain). A GE with two main parties committed to Brexit won’t IMO bring about a majority govt, but will still be a damn sight more democratic than this ridiculous path we’re on..
@WMac78 @DairJen You forgot brexit would bring about more chance of getting hit by an asteroid..
This is nuts!!! Why are some MP’s still talking about the lack of parliamentary sovereignty and the need to take back control to get their #Brexit. #r4today.
It’s #Brexit Day, Bloomberg stated it best re the Parliamentary vote “Victory is apparently impossible, focus is on the size of the defeat” the below tweet by @ING_Economics is a great summary of market expectations The vote takes place tonight +/- 21:00.
Take a second look, May urges MPs before Brexit vote.
@TDO_AllAccess Wondering how the Brexit vote could be a major market mover other than earnings.
Operation Defeat Nationalists in full swing: 1. Total roll back brexit 2. Rejection and destruction of Trump doctrine and legacy 3. Establishment of global currency not subject to state control / manipulation.
Anna Soubry and others were elected under false pretences to respect the 2016 EU Referendum result and 2017 Tory Manifesto. She now opposes principles by which she was elected by her Leave voting constituency. Until there is Right To Recall, please sign:.
When Brexit is done and by with the most memorable thing for me will be the sheer expediency and selfishness of the Labour Party over the course of the process. There has been absolutely zero national interest in their conduct at all..
Panalpina ready for Brexit with freighter flight and task force #brexit #airfreight @PanalpinaGroup.
ça va être magique de voir la réaction de Warnock si le deal Sala va au bout, après sa sortie légendaire sur le Brexit ce #FCNantes #BlueBirds.
Dear God, #Brexit purist MPs - we are going to be dragged into a second referendum and into #Remain if you vote down this deal and that will be your fault. It’s intensely annoying to watch Leave MPs ensure we Remain, but that is what they are doing..
Brexiteers must hold their nerve this week. Fearmongering by government will intensify & Remainers who are trying to stop Brexit will get more vicious in their tactics. We need to keep fighting to honour ref result & stay strong for the million ppl. We cannot let them down..
Just saw a tweet calling Kieran Trippier the “Brexit Maicon” and it’s all I can think about right now!.
Brexit campaigners: How dare you accuse all Brexit voters of being stupid and racist! Also Brexit campaigners: All Brexit voters are violent thugs..
“What do we want?” “Justice for our boys” “Nice” “Brexit” “Yeah put that down” “Child abuse” “Sorry?” “ABUSE OF CHILDREN IN THE SYSTEM” “Uh” “VETERAN SUICIDES” “Let me take a look at that list, Ian”.
What is extraordinary about the Brexit talks is that 27 EU countries, and a parliament and a bureaucracy have negotiated with a single voice - under the leadership of @MichelBarnier - and the UK has negotiated as if it was the equivalent of 27 or perhaps 600 dissonant voices.
Mrs May has now cancelled the nuclear power project in Anglesey, the tidal lagoon in Swansea (the next would have been Cardiff), & rail electrification west of Cardiff. A systematic policy is trashing Welsh jobs, Welsh infrastructure & the Welsh economy to pay for Brexit.
