The remainer media have gone into overdrive over tales of EU citizens being denied their rightful vote. But, just like bogus tales of Brexit Party leaflets being posted in the same envelope as postal votes, the tales of #DeniedMyVote don't stack up. Thread
Firstly EU citizens ARE entitled to vote in our local elections. They CAN vote in the EU elections BUT, to prevent them voting both in the UK and their home country, they must complete a special form to say they are voting here and not at home.
This is not a well known process; I've worked in elections for over a decade and hadn't heard of the form until 2 months ago. How many people supposedly "#DeniedMyVote" didn't not complete the form and just assumed they could vote like in the local elections?

Very interesting - but will it make a difference? Some reflections on how the US sees #Brexit after a couple of days in Washington D.C. (thread)
1. Generally, lots of confusion: about the process, politics and details of Brexit. No deal a worry for US firms (already in UK) and, interestingly, Americans planning to travel to UK/Europe (media coverage of food shortages and flight disruption).
2. But Trump is simply not interested in the process of leaving the EU - much more about what happens after the UK has left. For him, a hard Brexit presents trade opportunities for the US. Plus, he distrusts the EU.

It has been brought to attention that the enemy [EVIL] is in all out war mode. With #Brexit and Tommy running for election [HUGE WORLD WIDE BLOW TO DS] [THEY] are in high gear.

The enemies are employing the DIVIDE AND CONQUER strategy. Whispers...



The [ENEMIES] are the one showing division. Saying this one or that one is bad actor.

Now is the time to trust yourself. We went thru this not long ago.


Is everything a person done in the interest of good in the movement?

Does gossip show unity or division?

We are #UNITEDNOTDIVIDED and fighting for freedom!

THREAD-"Make no mistake: dividing Western societies against themselves and setting them against one another is a key pillar of the Russian security strategy."
"The question for European countries is whether they will follow the UK down the path of impotent rage and national self-destruction.
"At the end of the day, the future of Europe and the West is not up to Putin; it is up to us—starting with the European voters who will go to the polls this week."

SO in @BorderIrish @BorderIrishSea news it emerges that Karen Wheeler, the civil servant trying to manage the circus is leaving. She had a hard job and people who worked with her said she was a valiant straight-talker. Which is valuable in a world.../1

1 #EUelections a message to UK voters from Germany.

For anyone who actually cares about what happens to #Europe & the world:
the #EUelection is NOT A PROXY 2ND REFERENDUM.

Your vote will NOT deliver #Brexit / stop Brexit.
The EU Parliament does NOT have these powers.

2 But your vote in the #EUelection2019 DOES have real-world consequences.

Right now, under the Spitzenkandidat system, the EPP's #ManfredWeber, of the right-wing anti-immigrant pro-backroom-lobby Bavarian CSU - is on course to become the next EU Commission president. 😖
3 If #ManfredWeber becomes Commission president, it's curtains for any chance of saving the world from #ClimateCollapse.

His CSU are way to the right of Merkel - & literally in the pocket of the German auto industry.

For good measure, Weber is also mates with #ViktorOrban 🤢

I say this with a great, and sad reluctancy. But having spoken to two @brexitparty_uk candidates in my local area today, I no longer find myself at a point where I can physically say that I will vote, in the EU elections tomorrow, for the Conservative Party. #EuElection2019
Who I will put my X in the box for I do not know, but a number of factors have lead me to this decision, which I do not take lightly. Chief amongst which is the so called ‘deal’ that Mrs May announced yesterday. It is anything of the sort, it is not a deal nor compromise. #Brexit
Instead it is a complete and utter capitulation by the Prime Minister which has backfired horrendously. The promise of a second referendum in a parliament where the MPs overwhelmingly voted to remain in their own personal votes is strategically inept. #EUelection2019 #Brexit

This thread by @lewis_goodall could not be more wrong (although interestingly argued). UKIP literally *always* did well in European elections and in NO OTHER ELECTIONS.

That’s happening again apparently. MEP votes in Britain are protest votes and that’s all they are.
It’s a pity we don’t take MEP voting seriously. We should. But we have historically elected swathes of UKIP and LibDems who then utterly fail to win Parliamentary seats.

Theresa May is directly and personally to blame for Tory losses. She should resign right away.
Lastly I see that @Theresa_May’s farcical deal which will appeal to absolutely no Tories ever is going to lose many of our MEPs their seats. But she is leaving anyway and a new Tory leader will junk the deal. #Brexit

I have to say, even I didn't appreciate quite how grim the reception would be for May's new 'greatest hits' #Brexit comipilation...but the savagery is a reminder of a persistent truth about this negotiation. /1 Thread…
Right from the get-go, going back to David Cameron's Bloomberg speech when he was full of optimism about reforming the EU in the UK's image, getting a derogation on free movement, there has been a mismatch between expectations and reality. Consequently.../2
Every single product of these negotiations over a three-year period is delivered in London & Westminster stillborn.

However artfully constructed, the product of compromise always pales against the unalloyed visions set out by the Rees Moggs and the Farages of this world. /3

We've just released the final report by @Alston_UNSR, the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme #poverty, on his visit to the #UK. The report is available here:…. A few key takeaways:
Some have asked me why a UN expert on #poverty would visit the #UK. Unfortunately, although the UK is the world’s 5th largest economy, 14 million are in poverty, child poverty is rising & predicted to reach 40% by 2021, homelessness is up 60%, and food bank use has skyrocketed.
To understand #poverty in the #UK, you have to look at the massive disinvestment in social support since 2010: the end of a centralized social fund, changes to the ways benefits are capped & calculated that substantially reduce their value, the decimation of civil legal aid, etc.

Vote for #Farage and get this. This man is Crispin Odey. He bankrolled #VoteLeave and made 220m when leave won by shorting the pound. Farage helped the markets to fluctuate when he 'conceded' the referendum early. You are being used to fill their pockets. #BrexitParty #EUElection
Odey also has links to Rees-Mogg. He helped Jacob set up his hedge fund, and also helped towards his election costs. They are all in this together, they pretend to care about the working-class, but in truth they are exploiting us to make more money.…

Watching a #Brexit Party rally:

Widdecombe: "I said that Prime Minister Theresa May was the worst Prime Minister since Anthony Eden. Well, I apologise to Mr Eden".

Guest speaker is Václav Klaus
Farage says if Brexit Party wins #ep2019 it puts WTO exit back on the table for October

The people voted for lies, Boris, and you know it. The amount of disinformation that flooded the #Brexit campaign should have stopped it before it began.
Honestly. We have had so much racist, classist bullshit to sift through courtesy of UKIP and the English Defence League - and it was all such bullshit. We had to create a new category tag for our stories because of them: "imaginary Muslim outrage"

For the UK, the #European Elections are no replacement for a second referendum. Nor are they just a symbolic act. All the more reason to vote. Thread (I am not going to tell you how to vote. Just to vote.) 1
There is something bizarre about holding European Elections in 🇬🇧 3 years after the referendum. Voters are being asked to cast their vote in an election without knowing what the legal and constitutional significance of that election will be. Two scenarios are imaginable: 2
Scenario A: if 🇬🇧 leaves the EU by October 31 or even before then, British MEPs will only take their seats in the European Parliament for an extremely short period of time. 3

#EP2019 & #Brexit thread. Euro elections this week. EU officials reeling, as UK participation in Euro polls will:- 1) massively complicate discussions over top EU jobs as presence of UK MEPs hurts EPP but benefits S&D & Liberals; 2) make coalition building harder between 3 groups
But EPP, Socialists & Liberal cooperation in Bxl now necessary to limit €sceptic advance; 3) give Orban more power to determine balance between EPP & Socialists - should he choose to leave EPP. Amplifies leverage of Orban's ~14 MEPs; 4) Also complicates life for @matteosalvinimi
Very unclear if Farage will sit in his group. As one senior official puts it: “the logic of him sitting in his own group is that he will want to be chair or co-chair so he can get speaking time in big debates. In the Salvini group there will be a hell of a fight as to who leads.”

BXP has no manifesto, no detailed policies & no plan for #Brexit (no, "just walk away" isn't a serious plan outside of a pub!)

Why are people willing to vote for a shady outfit that isn't a party, has dodgy finances & will likely adopt #UKIP's *no work* habit?
What's more, BXP now say they want to run in the next GE, even though the leader admits #Brexit isn't the answer to any of our domestic problems — you know, all those problems Leave voters thought Brexit was going to fix.

Somehow it feels like this is all about the salary and perks for some of the BXP's candidates, and that they're not taking the business of representing our country in an international forum seriously - as indeed those who were previously part of UKIP never have.
