1...Imagine (if you can) that you are the political plankton @PeterBoneUK.
For 13 long years you have held your nose & suffered the whiny grievances emanating from Midlands skid mark town #Wellingborough...
2...Your only previous claim to fame was when you were described as Britain's "meanest boss" by the Daily Mirror for paying a 17-year-old trainee 87p an hour while remunerating your wife £45k per year.

1/4 If anyone is still listening, here’s an ABC of WTO-only #Brexit as it applies to my business, driving & #trucking.
Bryce Baschuk (@bbaschuk) writes for Bloomberg on WTO.
Dmitry Grozoubinski (@DmitryOpines) has actually been a #WTO negotiator. 2/4 Dmitry lists (by his own admission, in no particular order) planes not flying, ill prepared customs authorities, removal of competent authorities & loss of financial services & then says this about #trucking..

1/5 Brexit Britain is in as ugly, bitter & dangerous state as I can ever recall. Political parties, the press, communities & families are hopelessly split &, as this epic summer blazes on, the two sides slump exhausted, like medieval armies plotting the final & decisive battle. 2/5 Someone, perhaps one or all of these politicians or an outsider like Gina Miller or Sadiq Khan, simply HAS to rise up, statesman-like, & make real the #PeoplesVote that is surely our last chance of delivering this country from the fast approaching #Brexit catastrophe.
