Thread: "#Brexit & #Chequers, the sellout. Dump it, let's move on".
I keep hearing "Where is the plan?" and a load of misinformation on #Brexit, pushed on UK media by irrelevant & biased commentators, elevated simply because they are avid Remoaners.
They aim to distract.
We already knew from those tasked with the negotiations, there had been a definite direction of travel & #Brexit plans were well advanced, prior to #Chequers.

David Davis & his team had been constantly rebuffed by Number 10, as they tried to pursue a proper #Brexit plan, but they HAD been making progress.

UKGov had been negotiating with industry since the #Brexit vote, but shifted position totally at the last minute to deliver the #Chequers White Paper.
We saw this clearly, when the heads of UK Services Sector were interviewed at Committee recently.
Many clips to follow :)
Firstly, what did the Services Sector think of #Chequers?
They were taken by surprise & didn't appear amused.

It was only mere weeks before, at Mansion House, where even the Remain side of govt was pushing the 'Mutual Recognition' model.
It changed very quickly, under the #Chequers capitulation, to 'Equivalence', essentially rule-takers.…
"Were you taken by surprise by the govts shift from Mutual Recognition to Equivalence?"
"Are the govt putting too much emphasis on Goods, over Services?"
Pay attention to some of the figures quoted - these people matter.
Were the govt engaging properly with UK Services, prior to #Chequers?
It would seem so, up until the last week or so.
Then they called them up & told them they changed their minds.
Kinda like getting dumped by text, I suppose.
Has the UK Services Sector been properly addressing Contingency Planning, specifically for #NoDealBrexit?
Of course they have, are you nuts? They started the day we voted to leave.
Has #Chequers alleviated the need for Contingency Planning?
Not at all, it clarifies nothing.
If anything Chequers has made the need for alternative plans more real.
The EU, in some instances, limits access for our up & coming digital economy (& others) to non-EU markets.
If we become EU rule-takers, will we stil be constrained?
Of course, that's part of the con.
That full EU Committee interview is available here:…
One positive I took was the pragmatism amongst Services heads.
They all obviously favoured Remain, but are practical & addressing our future under #Brexit.
We have been sold a bum steer by #Chequers.
It is a step backwards & totally flies in the face of 18 months of work with UK Industry leaders.
The fear of becoming 'rule-takers' is palpable.
Chequers WILL force us into a #NoDeal situation.
The Master of Logic @ajcdeane nailed this point weeks ago, before we even saw many developments.
We CAN flourish outside the EU, but we MUST prepare for #NoDeal.
We are literally tying our own hands otherwise.

As an aside, @ajcdeane made another good point last week whilst reviewing the papers.
We really DO need to start talking out the WTO option & see where it needs attention.

Lots of speculation that HMRC won't be ready in the event of #NoDeal.
This has already been debunked.
We CAN do this shit, if we're pushed to it.…
"But...but...Northern Ireland...."
Utter nonsense & a total red herring in the whole #Brexit debate.
Anna Soubry has only recently discovered NI, and you are listening to her?
@eastantrimmp nailed this totally in HoC lately.

We are where we are & we ARE for #Brexit.
#Chequers won't deliver it & unless something changes soon, it's No Deal.
The #PeoplesVote crowd are an irrelevant distraction, they'll achieve nothing except annoyance.
#ChuckChequers, let's get down to business, time is short.
19/19 🙏

👇 We need to Remain in the EU because:
1) The establishment want us to & they always look after the little guy.
2) JP Morgan & Goldman Sachs say it is a good idea.
3) George Soros has tossed £800k into overturning our Referendum, so we must have got it wrong.
4) Richard Branson wants us to & we need to forgive his VAT Fraud, tax avoidance & tax haven lifestyle.
5) We will run out of sandwiches without the EU.
6) We'll have no medicine & planes will fall from the sky, should we leave the trading bloc.
7) We need to get out of NATO, who have served their purpose at keeping us safe for decades. We can start our own EU army & replace it.
8) London has become too big & we should share it with Frankfurt & Paris. The UK is receiving too much income from London.

#WorldSuicidePreventionDay thread. 👇
1) Lost 7 male pals over 10 yrs to #Suicide & the devastation does not ease.
I don't do 'feels', but perhaps you'll gleam something useful from my rambling account of what it leaves behind.
I'm not subtle, for that I cannot apologise.
2) Long term friendships disappear, as you begin to find remaining pals are nothing but a reminder.
When all your socialising & reminiscing is related to the dead, it becomes less inviting.
When the things you have in common are death-related, your relationship changes.
3) The family of the dead are never the same.
Mothers devastated. Sisters broken. Children damaged.
That constant feeling you have let them down, knowing you HAVE let them down, because you were helpless, useless, & ultimately irrelevant when it mattered. It bites bad.

Subject? HATE.
I apologise for nothing. Life was what it was.
1) When a pup in NI, I was quite partial to practising my kissing skills, finding motivation like nothing else before.
Unfortunately, I'd not be one to let 'religion' be a barrier, in my pursuit of glory.
2) This was a problem, back in the dark days.
When you came from an 'estate', known for being a 'stronghold' of one 'side' or other, it was frowned upon & tended to lead to violence of some sort.
God was irrelevant.
3) I remember walking a young lady home, one Saturday night, as one did.
I'm guessing anywhere between 16-18yo, so 1986-88.
I'd got into pubs from 13yo, as most local bouncers were 'locals'.

1) I'm concerned about 'violence', and potential 'street' violence/unrest, if this Tommy Robinson thing gets twisted any further.
This is long, but bear with me.
Particularly if you are likely to attend any demos soon....
2) When large numbers of people take to the streets, often with many harbouring selective facts, things get muddled.
When a large number of those people are what one could describe as 'handy', they can cause chaos if they turn bad.
I am assuming most there are not 'bad' people.
3) If we take a look at the crowd today, then maybe compare it to an SJW-type event, there is a marked difference in the potential for 'handy' people.
I'll ignore the 'far right' thing, it's a debate all on it's own & a distraction from the point.…
