1/ EU citizens allowed to stay in case of no deal Brexit because of labour shortages - UK Govt claiming moral high ground.
Moral f'ing high ground my fat German derriere. I really feel valued now. 20 years on this island and I am 'allowed to stay' because of labour shortages?
2/ there have been plenty of opportunities to claim moral high ground over the last 2 years. Proper moral high ground that both @The3Million & @BritishInEurope have asked for. The UK Gov has ignored those pleas.
3/ now with no deal Brexit looming, something I had zero say in and wasn't even allowed to vote in, they realise that the economy needs us. Bloody late. And bloody insulting.
4/ who am I? A shire horse dragging the cart out of the mudd? No, I am a human being, a father, a husband, a colleague, a school governor, a friend. Moral high ground would have been to say we are guaranteeing #citizensrights in case of no deal because of human decency.
5/ but human decency is something that Brexiteers and the UK Govt has very little of. 86,000 EU citizens have decided to leave the UK workforce last year. Guess, they did not want to feel used and abused by the UK Govt any longer.
6/ Labour f'ing shortages, that's what the last 20 years of my life in the UK has been reduced to. Shame on you UK Govt, shame on those who support this. I feel just disappointed - disappointed in myself for thinking the UK was run by decent people who believed in fairplay /end

1/ The same party that was telling you that there is no alternative to austerity is now telling you that there is no alternative to spending vast amount of money on Brexit.
2/ how many times have the Tories waived the letter saying there is no money left written by @LiamByrneMP in front of anyone questioning austerity?
3/ we've been told that there is 'no magic money tree' to help those most in need.…

1/ @Nigel_Farage you are a tool. Your claim that migration causes traffic jams is as wrong now as it was then. And here is why...
2/ ONS data shows that net migration between 2013 & 2018 stands at 1.3m. Even when assuming that each is at driving age and each rushed out to buy a car to block you on the M4 this would only explain half of the increase in cars on the road.
3/ ONS data also shows though that 36% of immigrants live in London where car ownership is only 0.3 per person. That would mean that of the 1.3m additional migrants 459k live in London adding only 100k cars.

1/ @DExEUgov has published the White Paper in 24 EU languages. I've just pained myself through the German document. For those who want to understand the true intentions of the UK the choice of words could be quite an eye opener - unintentionally I guess.…
2/ Don't bother going through the whole document yourself - the flaws throughout the document are all visible in these introductory paragraphs
3/ Those in the EU who accuse the UK of cherry picking will see their views vindicated. 'praktischen Brexit' might sound like practical Brexit but actually means 'handy Brexit'. Handy for who?

1/ Why is @UKLabour not opposing #Brexit when Tory Brexit is in tatters & 72% of the Labour supporters do oppose Brexit ? This is a very intriguing question & it feels counterintuitive, especially since most Labour MPs oppose Brexit too. But is it?
2/ Despite Labour party & and supporters opposing #Brexit, supporting it is the surest way to to winning the next general election. And this has nothing to do with wanting to attract Leave voters at all - nothing at all.
3/ There is only one Brexit scenario that will keep the @Conservatives in power: A hard #Brexit that at the same time is a success. And we know how likely that is. All other scenarios will almost automatically lead to a @UKLabour Govt.

1/ Dear Ms Jenkyns, as the person who posted the tweets on behalf of the3million you referred to in the Exiting the EU Committee I would like you to be honest with the committee and the electorate.
2/ Neither tweet used our words but were quotes highlighting the failures of the Home Office and/or the potential risks.
3/ if you have a problem with the words used by @JORISLUIJENDIJK, please take it up with him. The story of the Ipswich mayor was horrendous and a major failing by the Home Office. It only occurred as the mayor felt it necessary to become British due to Brexit.

1/ In today's @thesundaytimes Rod Liddle writes one of the most xenophobic, anti-romanian pieces I have read in a long time. Sure we are not reading the Völkischer Beobachter here?…
2/ Rod Liddle starts by slagging off Keith Vaz, who in comparison to Rod Liddle has actually done something positive for society rather than reducing listener numbers on Radio 4 and taking @spectator even further to the right (who knew that that was possible)
3/ Rod Liddle's piece quite quickly shows where this nasty xenophobic piece is going. Mocking accents/language skills - guess Liddle is accent free and fluent in plenty of languages. And of course an early reference to crime.
