“These fires are being started as a means to clear land… that’s clearly what’s going on here.”
Mike Barrett from @wwf_uk

Former Tory Brexit Secretary, hardline Brexiteer and incompetent fool David Davis claimed more than £10,000 of taxpayers’ money in MPs expenses on home improvements in four years, including a new £5,700 portico.

TONIGHT: The Amazon is burning, as anger grows against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro over the rate of deforestation.
Green MEP @MagicMagid
says "our response... will change the course of history".
We'll ask him what action he wants to see
TONIGHT: As Emmanuel Macron tells Boris Johnson the Irish backstop is "indispensable" to political stability, we'll hear from a US congressman who has pledged to oppose any US/UK trade deal that undermines the Good Friday agreement
| #newsnight | @RepBrendanBoyle
OMG this american dude grasps the point of the backstop that most British commentators seem incapable of understanding !! #Newsnight
says there is precedent for the US Congress to block a trade deal.
He says he would like a UK/US trade deal but if #brexit leads to a hard border in Ireland then the maths will be there in Congress to block a deal. #Newsnight https://t.co/q5Bq8I5aNk
US Congressman @RepBrendanBoyle
restates the reality re US/UK trade deal on #Newsnight
“We’ve been quite blunt from day one. There will be no US/UK trade deal if the Good Friday Agreement is undermined.” #Brexit https://t.co/o0ylwA4KP8
There are already two jurisdictions on the island of Ireland. Speed limits change from MPH to KPH, differing excise, differing VAT rates, differing currency, mobile border controls for smuggling, a clear border marked on maps with numerous ANPR cameras at or near. #Newsnight
Johnson ‘can do’ bullshit mimicking old wartime rhetoric, told us absolutely nothing. Seeing him with Macron, foot on table, crutch exposed, covertly trumping’ in his trousers streaking his sweaty underpants, doing it because he can with a smirk telling us he had #Newsnight
How many times do we have to tell Europhiles that Britain voted to LEAVE the EU, not remain part of it but change our passport colour to blue #Newsnight
Wanting to remain in the EU is fine. MPs abusing their power to overturn BrExit is not when they promised to deliver BrExit. We should have had the right to make sure our MPs won't do everything they can to REMAIN. They lied to us. That is why we call them traitors #Newsnight
#Brexit is in the interest of neither side, and it's disgusting that you're attempting to transform our friends, partners and allies in the #EU27 into 'the other side.'
You, Alexander Boris De Pfeffel Pedicabo Negotium Johnson (Esq.), are #NotMyPM

The UK is over populated and that is polluting our rivers. Isn't that a good reason for controlling migration? #Newsnight
Any comments @NicolaSturgeon @theSNP
Where does your agenda come from, we should be told?

how can Westmacott be on same planet as rest of us. Saying EU can say they have done everything they could, is BS. The timetable is there to frustrate Brexit & expecting us to be walked over means they are responsible for WTO. Sort out future & all this would vanish #Newsnight https://t.co/PfXZQbQ0vR
