This isn't quite the intervention from the German car industry that @Digbylj was adamant would occur - and yet he'll soon be spouting more of his fact-free nonsense on a screen near you. https://t.co/4y9oLt2iYQ
@lloydiewoods These observations have already been proved right: Brexiters will end up pretending that 'no deal' was always their plan, the border in Ireland will prove impossible to solve if we leave the single market, jobs will migrate to the EU, the German car industry won't intervene...
Those of us who’ve been proved miserably right about Brexit have hoped throughout that we’d misunderstood something & would be proved wrong. Those who’ve been proved categorically & catastrophically wrong about everything are still all over the media insisting that they’re right.
Ironically, there may never be a more important test of our parliamentary democracy & the sovereignty of that parliament than the one presented by the prospect of crashing out with neither plan nor deal.
10-15% of the electorate lean towards baseless xenophobia. That’s why Cameron feared Ukip. It could pass 20+ with the addition of a refugee &/or financial crisis. That’s why Brexiters weaponised both. The ERG teaches us that the arithmetic is pretty much the same in Parliament.
My youngest has had my old phone for a couple of years. Just for games, which I download for her before disconnecting the internet. Still has my old contacts though & it turns out she’s been messaging my dad, who died 5 years ago. I may have something in my eye.
If you’ve somehow found yourself on the same side as the woman defending Hitler, the man who scuppered FGM legislation or the Minister who gave a contract to a shipping company with no ships, it might be time for a rethink.
On Monday, vowed to leave “no stone unturned” in pursuit of the truth about Windrush. On Wednesday, he voted to keep all details of how it happened secret. Dizzying hypocrisy has become a prerequisite for membership of Theresa May’s Government.
We’re paying tens of billions of pounds to leave the world’s largest free trade area while surrendering all of our ability to define its rights & regulations. All so that we can hopefully start negotiating an inferior arrangement with the world’s largest free trade area.
£14million Government contract awarded without anyone else knowing it was up for grabs to a 'shipping' company with sixty six quid in the bank, no ships, no history & its terms & conditions cut & pasted from a takeaway website. Brexit is turning us into a (Bendy) Banana Republic.
Is it this simple? May can’t blame the disaster on the people who caused the disaster because it would finish the party. So she’s conspiring with the people who caused the disaster to blame the disaster on the EU, secure in the support of media which helped cause the disaster.
