1/ Some thoughts about David Davis resignation. #DavidDavis #Brexit bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politi…
2/ his select committee appearances conveyed the impression of a blustering, lazy, make-it-up-as-you-go-along chancer. theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
3/ how could Davis justify his ministerial salary? 'David Davis has spent just 4 hours in talks with Michel Barnier this year' ft.com/content/9e3aac…
4/ in short, Davis has promised big, achieved little and to be honest should hand back his Ministerial salary for the past year.
5/ Having Baker leave too is a bonus as #SteveBaker pumps the most egregious ERG-Vote Leave nonsense into government uk.reuters.com/article/uk-bri…
6/ but to be honest the hard Brexiteers were always going to jump ship before crunch time so their undeliverable promises won't be revealed as 🦄 poo.
7/ suggest government hire us @EFTA4UK as consultants, we will sort Brexit for you. /End

1/ Some people ask - "Why can't we just have a Canada style deal or a Canada+ / SuperCanada deal with the EU?"
2/ Firstly, it won't solve the Irish border problem. We looked into it. Considered every angle.
3/ even if it did, CETA took years to agree. We leave the EU *NEXT MARCH*

A quick thread about 'PROJECT FEAR'. #brexit [1]
2/ before the referendum, both sides undoubtedly exaggerated their positions and stretched the truth. I.E. Vote Leave said Turkey was imminently going to join the EU. While Turkey was/is an EU official accession state, it wasn't and isn't joining anytime soon.
3/ Likewise, remainers claimed there would be an emergency budget and Recession immediately after a vote to leave. Neither have transpired, but it would be false to say there hasn't been a negative effect on the UK economy.

1/ A lot of these hard brexit puppets are now coming out of the woodwork; saying things like "don't attack us personally, that shows you have lost the battle of ideas". Fair enough. Except...
2/ they haven't won the battle of ideas at all. Every time they put forward ideas and get ERG friends to parrot them in the media, they get disproved by experts or shot down by the EU.
3/ if their ideas were so good we would be well on the way now to a fantastic uk-eu FTA the likes of which has never been seen before. But WE AREN'T.

1/ We want to address something now which is key to the entire Brexit debate. It takes the form of two questions with one answer:
2/ People have busy lives. Even we political obsessives are staggered by the complexities of Parliamentary systems, International law and global trade. Its a lot to take in...
3/ And when a member of the public (leaver or remainer) sees the EU signing trade deals with Canada 🇨🇦, Japan🇯🇵 etc, they ask a sensible and legitimate question - why can't they sign such a deal with the UK? euractiv.com/section/climat…

1/ The government white paper is quite sensible in many areas. But it is overly-complicated and with notable gaps (especially on services).
2/ 95% of what this white paper sets out to achieve could be dealt with via Efta/EEA.
3/ the EU likely won't accept this proposal however anyway. So here is an alternative proposal:

1/ One of the whinges we hear from people like @andreajenkyns is "we can't be tied to EU rules after brexit"!!. To that, we would ask - which EU rules are you opposed to?
2/ in some ways the EU acts as an intermediary between international standards settings bodies and member states:
3/ however, leaving the EEA means that even if we voluntarily adopt the rules set by global bodies we won't get automatic single market access. We will be a 'third Country' and be treated as such.
