Watch closely to see if Columbia Gas tries to charge MA Ratepayers $1.9M x 48 Miles of new pipe, through the DPU-approved Gas System Enhancement Program (GSEP) #DisasterCapitalism… via @BostonGlobe
.@MassGovernor Has @NiSourceInc @ColumbiaGasMA requested #GSEP funding - paid by MA Ratepayers at ~$1.9M/mile - to replace the 48 miles of pipe blown out?
If so, has DPU approved? @ntsongas @SenWarren @sethmoulton @SenMarkey @MassAGO @CLF @AcadiaCtr @MassSierraClub @350Mass
If @ColumbiaGasMA has good insurance for its other losses, it might profit handily from its disaster, ~$90M from MA ratepayers in new pipeline construction. Don't let them pull a fast one. #DisasterCapitalism

This thread is to arm fellow European British with essential info about our POSSIBLE future relationship with the WTO and what it would mean for the UK in a no deal situation. Use it to rebut Brexiteer disengenuity and nonsense on the matter - facts matter. /1
WTO RULES state that you can’t treat other nations more favourably in trade deals. So, the EU be in breach of their own international Treaties to accept the Chequers Accord. This is highly unlikely; they’d have to make these same allowances for more than 50 other countries. /2
Central to WTO rules is, to trade favourably, then a country must have a hard border to control good entering & leaving the country (as ratified by all 164 WTO members). S.10 of the EUWA18 makes this impossible: the UK can’t create a hard border in Ireland (protecting the GFA)./3
