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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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)

1/ Yesterday @DominicRaab claimed that immigration has driven up house prices by up to 20% over the last 25 years. Sounds impressive but it isn't when looking at the numbers in detail.… 2/ @AskNationwide provides a quarterly house price index. Maybe @DominicRaab should have looked at that first to understand how house prices have moved over the last 25 years.…

1/ Corbyn thinks he has found a line on how to bash EU migrants without being seen as xenophobic.

The EU Posted Workers Directive.

This directive allows companies to post workers within the EU without having to abide to local labour laws. 2/ Corbyn says employers are using posted workers to undercut British workers. So is Corbyn right? Are UK businesses & workers massively undercut by floods of posted foreign workers earning below minimum wage and work under squalid conditions?

1/ Two days ago immigration minister @carolinenokes made a swiping comment that nothing needed to be done to tackle discrimination against @The3Million EU citizens as discrimination is already 'unlawful'. 2/ I can tell you @carolinenokes, discrimination against EU citizens and their families is real and will increase. It is already happening.

1/21 News coverage of excellent @CommonsHomeAffs report “Immigration policy: basis for building consensus” is poor and does not do it justice. The report is a damning summary of shocking national & local Gvt failure of policy, process & communication.
2/21 Gvt policy & communication hasn’t only failed to reduce people’s concerns but as the report shows has actively increased anti-immigrant sentiment within UK population. Something @the3million EU nationals & 5.7m non-EU immigrants have felt increasingly over recent years.

1) Theresa May has begged @The3Million EU nationals and both @TheSun & @DailyMailUK reported about it.

The comments below the articles seem to prove those wrong who said #Brexit was not about xenophobia. Brace yourself for a long and eye opening thread... Old giddy there thinks EU nationals are not people but creatures that need kicking out

If you want to know why @The3Million EU nationals are fearful about losing EU protection & falling under UK immigration law. Thread below: 2) American with an English wife and two British children, has returned to US while appeal is processed…
