If Boris Johnson says that it is entirely a matter for the UK if it chooses to leave the EU then it’s entirely matter for Scotland if it chooses to leave the UK. As Brussels didn’t prevent the Brexit referendum so Westminster shouldn’t stop this one. https://t.co/ysDqv7wu5g
I am not fussed about whether Big Ben bongs on Brexit day. Sure, £500,000 is a huge amount of money to waste on jingoism. But what I care about is the £130 billion and counting that leaving the EU has already cost. https://t.co/V5lSuA7Y61
Why don’t we start a crowdfunder to hire the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to play the EU anthem ‘Ode to Joy’ on a boat on the Thames and light up the London Eye with the EU flag at 11pm on January 31st as a touché to the Big Ben bongs for Brexit.
This is so sweet & quietly persuasive. On January 31st, let’s all refrain from pointing out how pant-wettingly stupid Brexit is. No demands for ‘tangible benefits’. No questions about actual improvements. No pointing out already broken promises. No facts. Just bongs & ignorance! https://t.co/F3xkd56qWE
IF this is true, and it almost certainly is, Robert Mercer - an American Citizen- funded both Leave campaigns. That is totally illegal. The Brexit vote was illegal. Let that sink in. https://t.co/y60Y7WNbuZ

But apparently, it’s got nothing to do with Brexit.
There will be border checks between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK after Brexit.
Repeat after me: You cannot trust a single word Boris Johnson says. https://t.co/GbHXPxgGXp
End of manufacturing
End of farming
Workers/consumer rights slashed
Environmental protections gone

The Brexit Party MEPs were not only the rudest most obnoxious rabble in the EU parliament, insulting our allies and making us look like fools they were also the richest politicians in it. That they have now left never to bring shame on us again is a matter of considerable joy.

Government analysis estimates that Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal will reduce annual UK economic growth by 6.7% and average real terms wages by 6.4% compared to staying in the EU. His deal is three times more damaging to the economy than Theresa May’s deal.
Brexit good news: Flybe rightly saved using thoughtful State Aid, a vital benefit of leaving Customs Union. A strategically important UK regional airline, helps local connectivity & can boost local growth. Private sector & state can work well together.
It would be funny to watch if it wasn't bringing the whole country down with it.
The man who sold Brexit on the basis of Free Trade Agreements now says they're unimportant and we should look at how France & Germany trade globally. But they are in the EU.
Why do we need to leave? https://t.co/zxT6xF51N6
Johnson's 1st month:
Refuse to release Russia report
Get ministers to boycott #r4today & Newsnight
Plan to wreck the BBC & Channel 4
Avoid reconvening select committees
Move lobby briefings to limit access
Scrap DexEU & Brexit select committee
Welcome to our new democracy.
Absolutely nothing to do with the resource plundering, slavery and protectionism, right? The Great Brexit Rewrite of British History is underway. Don't let them get away with it. https://t.co/qlxfeQ4EdE
Theresa May’s Brexit negotiator Oliver Robbins handed a knighthood despite her Brexit deal being rejected three times.
If you're a remainer & you disagree with Brexit & all that it brings, please RT. Clair Fox believes that remainers have come round to welcoming Brexit. Brexiters will soon learn their 'votes mattered' because it suited those who would take away their freedoms & make them poorer. https://t.co/j1jIdm171N
“People are crying when they go to sleep at night and when they wake up in the morning,
They are feeling a sense of loss which is akin to bereavement +a grieving process has only just begun...triumphalistic behaviour, will simply make things worse." https://t.co/fS2q2CcmuD
I’m not at all eloquent enough to put into words just how happy I am for families and communities like mine. The political, legal and media Establishment threw the kitchen sink at us, hellbent on stopping that vote for Brexit. Finally, in just 16 days, we deliver on that mandate.
If you only ever read one more article on Brexit ever again then I implore you from the bottom of my heart to read this one. AA Gill on Brexit (cheekily copy-pasted from behind The Times paywall.) https://t.co/aWtF0qIVsi

What a sanctimonious idiot.
Belittles the horrors millions actually went through.
'Lord' Greaves demonstrating that many hardcore Remainers have truly lost the plot.
Luckily their ranks are decreasing! Will struggle to find a Remainer in ten years.
Sadly, 300 jobs now at risk in Sittingbourne and Sheppey because of Brexit. The constituency voted 66% in favour of leaving the EU.
refers to the 'rules based liberal order' with withering contempt. This utterly magnificent piece by @davidgraeber
, probably the best thing I've read in years, sets out why.
I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's just pure genius.
This is where we are now, a dark, surreal comedy in which a PM makes up fairy tales about clocks and 'bongs', and this is the news, apparently. https://t.co/7mJriyqp45
For all those bores who keep asking whats good about #Brexit.
1) It proves voting makes a difference
2) It shows ordinary people can change things
3) It tells the elite that the people are in charge
4) It justifies the sacrifices of the Chartists & Suffragettes
