  • Thought @CarolineLucas made a far more cogent case for #FinalSay second Referendum than Gareth Snell. Particularly liked her 'colling off period' consumer right to reconsider an impulse purchase which you then regret on further reflection as an analogy.

  • Although also guilty of using #PeoplesVote I realise it's inaccurate as UK franchise is somewhat peculiar in who are deemed it's 'people' entitled to vote & those that aren't. So a Mozambican can vote but not a Portuguese. Still it sounds better than more accurate ElectoratesVote

  • Thanks Werner for the name check. Pity it's taken Brexit for mainstream UK to recognise that not all MEPs are in the swivel eye nationalist populist genre 😁

  • Why on earth did Brexiteer politicians ever think otherwise. IRL is a loyal member of the EU and UK is leaving the club & HMG original approach was for a clean break divorce. Membership will always take precedence over the interest of 3rd countries no matter how big or important.

  • @MaireadMcGMEP @BBCNewsnight @FineGael @EPPGroup Well done u performed brilliantly & put all hardBrexiteers like Johnson in their place when they condescendingly refer to the Irish problem having signed up in December 2017 to the JR probably without reading the text. Art 46 was clear then & is clear now about binding backstop

  • Funny old thing foreign TV Brexit debates on #France24 these days when I find I agree with most things a French Socialist @PervencheBeres says about the shambles and tragedy of the Brexit negotiations.
