After the referendum May slammed the door in the face of the 48%. Then she locked the moderate leavers up in another room, and negotiated #Brexit with her own cabinet and the pure Brexit ideologues. Goodbye to reality and compromise. #BrexitShambles
In Norway PM Gro Harlem Brundtland, who had campaigned for #Norway to join EU, stayed on her post so that she could negotiate an outcome as many as possible could accept. She went for #compromise and managed to unite a split country. 🇳🇴
PS. Gro Harlem Brundtland made an international career after she left Norwegian politics. I don’t agree with her politically, but she deserves respect. 🇳🇴
Is it the #FPTP mentality that allows this to happen? Winner takes it all! We won, you lost! Suck it up!
No pragmatism and compromise. 🤔

A young Conservative needs help with his poll.
Oh dear! It seems he didn’t want any help with his poll. Blocked.
But do give him a hand. He’s only managed a little more than 2000 votes since 30/7
Hm! We have turned the vote around to 56% Remain in less than an hour. 😊

Who would have thunk!
British hauliers will need licenses and permits to be able to drive on European roads. In a no deal scenario there will be no way of getting UK goods into Europe!
Yup! This is not #Scaremongering but #facts
The market access for British hauliers under a No deal scenario will only cover 3% of the needs.
#BrexitMadness #Transport
Check this thread where two experts on trade discuss the problem:
Take a look again at the situation on the Border with Turkey: Trucks driving into EU will need permit from every country they need to pass!
#CustomsUnion means free movement of goods but not trucks.…

Seems the EEA advocates think that EEA countries do not contribute to the EU budget. This is wrong. Check this link from the Norwegian Governments own pages:…
Ideologists, huh?
Norway contributes to the EU budget in three major fields: to reduce social nd economic disparities, to take part in EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus), and the Schengen cooperation.…
Norway and other EEA countries’ contributions to the EU programmes (Horizon2020, Erasmus+, Galileo, Copernicus) are on foot with full member states.
There is no taking part in EU programmes without contributions to the budget.…

I ran into a rabid Brexiter on my evening walk today. Talked about how happy he was now that UK was leaving the EU. I tried to keep my cool and think I managed to get in a few hard facts, like it’s not the EU forcing a hard border in Ireland #Disinformation #Brexit
The guy happens to be an (unfollowed but not unfriended) FB friend, and he offered me a ride home and said “Please don’t unfriend me.”
He’s decent enough, but very ill informed. I also told him that I’ve never been to a country more ill informed about EU than the UK.
I told him that there had been a massive anti EU disinformation campaign in the UK since the early 1990ies. The lies were so many the EU found it necessary to launch a separate page to debunk it. It has arond 600 entries, I sad.
Referring to this:…

So, this happened.
Troll pretending to unite ppl on Brexit tweets long anti-EU thread full of disinformation.
Troll is effectively debunked by an EU insider who knows how EU works, @ottocrat
Troll goes into a manic hizzyfit and implodes.
Brexit Central think they have a scope
Here’s the original thread where the lies are debunked.
Here’s the reactions from Brexit Central this morning, trying to silence @ottocrat obviously, by “exposing” him and calling him a troll.
According to Brexit Central presenting facts = trolling.

Here’s Daniel Hannan. He doesn’t understand the #CustomsUnion, the #SingleMarket or the #Schengen area.
I think we need to help Dan. Norway and Switzerland are in the #SchengenArea. Within the Schengen Area people can cross the borders without passport control. Try driving a lorry full of goods into Norway nd Switzerland and you go through customs checks.
This is Svinesund Customs Station at the main border crossing between Norway and Sweden. It can handle up to 2500 lorries a day. Clearing customs usually takes less than ten minutes, but may tale a couple of hours.
