It's definitely time for bed. It's 9 minutes away from 24 hours since i got home from the Bath for Europe event last night and here I am in southern Spain getting ready for bed.. /1
on the rooftop of the penthouse apartment given to #3blokesinapub for our stay here.... (not quite given but cheaper than an air BnB thanks to the amazing support from the fine folk in this part of the world that also think Brexit is a catastrophic idea). /2

Hiya my fine Followers, it's been a bit hectic once again as you saw from last weekend.... Dorset, Chester, Liverpool... back to London and Lancaster today. We've uploaded 3 new episodes since Friday and have more coming soon...
I'm in Trowbridge tomorrow evening and I understand over 150 people in the room followed on Thursday evening in Bath before flying to Malaga to talk to some UK ex-pats (immigrants) in Spain to find out what life is like there amid all the uncertainty..
From Malaga to Gibraltar as that's quite a special case before Episdoes of #3blokes in Dublin and along the border line and another in Belfast.... I am amazed at the level of access that is being granted to @EveryCountry and myself at some of the highest levels in Geneva...

A few people asking where our information comes from...

#3Blokesinapub are fact finding because UK Gov and UK media aren't. We go to the places other people dont. Our info comes from the horses mouth. @everycountry

Oh crap. As we know at the moment the most likely scenario of Brexit is that no Withdrawal Agreement is going to be settled. TM the PM had
2/ categorically said that it's her way or the highway. Chequers or no deal.

If she knew that no deal means no Withdrawal Agreement and no transition and one of the tens of
3/ thousands of implications of no deal is that UK companies would no longer have the right to hold data of their customers in the EU....

Project FEAR Is Now Project FACT. Are you Ready For Project CATASTROPHE?

That was the lead on our press release that went out on Saturday... it read as follows...

YouTube phenomenon #3Blokesinabub have just returned from a two day fact-finding mission to Geneva, Switzerland,
2/ a city filled with the world’s leading experts in international trade,
intergovernmental law and global geo-economics. The facts and evidence #3Blokes In The Pub come back to the UK with present catastrophic
consequences to the people in the UK far, far worse than previously
3/ as “Project Fear”. When UK mainstream media discuss job loses, it is likely underestimated by a factor of at least SIX. The evidence gathered by #3Blokes shows prospective economic devastation for the engine of the UK.

So... planes delayed. We've just finished watching back the first part of #3blokesinapub in Geneva. We don't normally do that, we film and then @EveryCountry ​​ does all the behind the scenes dirty work like the hero that he is..... but this time
2/ we've met some super senior experts (there are a lot of them in Geneva) and we talked under Chatham House Rules in order that they could speak more candidly..... and oh BOY did they speak candidly.
3/ This next episode and the next part filmed this afternoon are explosive for the UK Government and the heads of the Brexit snake.

We have learned so much, even WE have been shocked by some of the stuff we've been told

@mac_puck has inspired a new #3Blokes episode...

That moment when you invite the author of Article 50 to join #3Blokesinapub in filming an episode about ALL OUR TREATIES CEASING overnight.
2/ "We would also be really interested in filming an episode with Lord Kerr if he would be interested to discuss the legalities of Treaties ceasing as he highlighted in Para 3 of Article 50 TEU.
3/ We would like to talk about the effect on UK exporters who are currently licensed to export to the EU.

For example,  UK Farmers and

A little thread here about potential problems for SME's in a No Deal scenario.

We import some components from the Far East and receive these 5 to 10 times every year. We have to pay import duties and VAT when they arrive, which can cause serious cash flow problems /1
We pay our domestic VAT quarterly in arrears. It also means we have to be able to pay this immediately as soon as the ship docks, otherwise the shipping agent will not release the goods and will charge storage charges. /2
The shipping agent can defer the payment of the upfront VAT, but we are still asked to pay it to the agent upfront, so that doesn't help. We can ask to get a deferment account, a DAN, with HMRC which means the VAT will be paid quarterly, with domestic VAT, so we did that. /3

Finally home from work. What an absolutely amazing day! Met with some incredible people this morning in Westminster from a variety of Remain campaign groups, MPs, MEPs, senior Civil Servants (and former), wandered past and said hi to Steve Bray and
2/ colleagues at SODEM on College Green and voiced my support for their great work and persistence, afternoon meetings for day job with our Chief Exec, dinner this evening with a delegation of senior execs from
3/ Japan (a $25 billion business with interests in UK) and a senior exec delegation from the USA with similar interests..... Full on day today.... and I even squeezed in a quick phone call with @EveryCountry from #3blokesinapub between meetings....
