Right -

I need to say something. This upsetting piece is far more the fault of the @MetroUK than it is of @Jacob_Rees_Mogg.

Regardless of my feelings toward Rees-Mogg & his policies, this is irresponsible journalism.

Allow me to explain in a thread:
The article accurately quotes Rees-Mogg and accurately attributes the quote to this letter (relevant page below) from Rees-Mogg to Andrew Adonis.

See paragraph 2.

That in itself is an alarming statement, but what is it in response to?
I asked Andrew for his letter to JRM - and here it is in full. Pages 1 & 3 make the only mention.

Both are about the Free Movement framework and whether it would continue or not (depriving UK citizens too).

The emphasis is not about non-Brits currently in UK.

Argh! @BBCr4today talking crap about why we have “huge tariffs” on “African countries” & whether we can lower tariffs.

This is ignorant. 33 African countries have ZERO tariffs to EU - coz they fall under “Everything But Arms” agreement.


Also, on top of this the EU has various deals with African regions in development, aimed at helping Africa integrate into global trading system (EU is Africa’s biggest trading partner)

Here’s the West Africa deal- incl Nigeria where May’s been visiting:

The EU has *huge* interest in the economic development & stability of Africa... especially given the proximity and immigration issues.

With these trade deals, I understand EU even planning to invest to help African producers meet EU quality levels to help boost exports to EU.

The usually impressive Yanis Varoufakis doesn’t hold up well in the comments section beneath.

Respecting a public verdict does not mean you remove future public verdicts. That’s disempowerment. And he is also plain wrong about mechanisms.

I encourage him to talk to us also.
I also am a democrat who respected the result.

In my case, that meant writing plans for UK-EU science post-Brexit (published academically & shared with Govt).

However, I also always maintained that if public don’t like where Brexit is going, they retain right to pull the plug.
Furthermore, the notion of a referendum on the deal is not logically indefensible.

In fact, for many years Rees-Mogg, John Redwood & even the Vote Leave campaign pushed the idea of a “double referendum” - one to initiate direction, one to pass verdict on any deal negotiated.

John Redwood absolutely caught red-handed on TV over his support for “double referendum” - wait until the end.

In fact, Dominic Cummings and Vote Leave publicly flirted with a Double Referendum.

Here was his thinking: Basically, that you get more moderates voting ‘No’ to EU if they thought that meant stopping status quo & having new deal on which they cld vote:

Here’s my favourite bit: Complete admission that there was no plan that Leavers could unite around.

Et voilà - the crux of the beast still ripping the Tories apart and tangling Brexit in the briars.

“I have been concerned at the continued attempts to refight the referendum and put the Leave campaigns in the dock,” writes @GregHands

Well I’m far more concerned that politicians should wish criminal actions to be ignored... for political expediency.

And I also note this piece is copy-paste from The @Telegraph two days earlier... but with a title change.

That’s not usual practice, is it @thetimes?
Here is the article by Greg Hands if you want to read it. It’s stuffed with plenty of errors. I’ll pick a few a thread below.

I’ve dropped #FBPE off my name. We need to build new community now. pscp.tv/w/biEF9zFtTUVQ…
Here’s the first video I did on #FBPE (in Nov 2017 I think)... for those of you who are curious:

Right, I’m seeing a lot of people disagreeing here.

I’m open to all suggestions.

Maybe I’ve got it wrong. Maybe the best way is to keep growing #FBPE strongly, regardless of attacks from any quarter.

And it’s definitely good that the Brexite commentators regularly attack.
