I'm reading the #Brexit White Paper here. Its utter #cakeism. EU will say no.
assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/upl… This is incredible. So the UK wants a common rule book for goods, but not services, membership of agencies ...

Who's going to be the fucking arbiter then? If not the ECJ!?

I'm becoming ever more - furiously I must attest - convinced I'm right about something.

First, read this. It's a quote today from @theresa_may in front of the Liason Committee. Read between the lines and you see a transition period lasting well beyond 5 years. There was zero chance that the UK would be ready for Brexit by March 2019, nor frankly by 2020. And we told you all that would be the case and lo and behold it's now appearing.

Thread: I'm so genuinely pissed off with @theresa_may's bare-faced lies on how much she wants EU migrants to stay in the UK - reiterated last night - that i've gone back and read her 2015 Speech to @Conservatives Party Conference. So, lets look at this Caring Tory said. No @theresa_may, we don't know anything of the sort. There is NO evidence of immigration to the UK hurting the poorest paid. There just isn't.

Thread: as a former Conservative, I'm amazed at how little the Left seem to understand how to beat them. A few key insights based on how Conservatives really think. Let's start with the easiest mistake.

Stop calling them evil. Whether they are or not, what you're doing is telling Conservative voters they're evil too. And you need to flip them.

Call then incompetent. That is what resonates. "Shower, shambles" etc. These are all good words.

The way in which Brexiteers expect #millenials to take up the slack of falling immigration is very revealing to me. It speaks to the paucity of their ambitions and their achievements in life. Their horizons are so tempered & so it's what they offer.

To help journos and politicos on the right, let me explain Corbyn's Brexit plan. Its simple elegance. Corbyn has repeatedly said the vote has been had and the question is settled. So the Tories have no line of attack on Labour is anti-brexit

1. Thread on my experience in a previous life as a Cameron Conservative. This will be a little long, but i hope interesting. 2. Conservative Future at the time (2009) wasn't what it became later. It was a place where Liberals could find a home and campaign.
