Any #Brexit would be a total #Catastrophuc for UK! Reasons will follow in this 12 part thread, to be developed over coming days. If you know of any NET benefits from #Brexit, please feed them in. They'd need to be good to match the >£1bn pw this mess is ALREADY costing US! 1/12.
Easiest one first! Full #EU membership (as NOW) gives the UK unrestricted tariff-free & frictionless trade access to an enlarged & well developed HOME market of 550+ million people in 27 fellow member states, being SO much MORE than our own UK of 4 much smaller parts. 2/12.
Brexiteers discount EU's relentless progress in terms of comprehensive trade deals with international markets. While UK has been a busy fool, chasing Brexit and getting nowhere! EU has signed Canada, Korea, Japan and (recently) Brazil & Argentina! All OURS to access NOW! 3/12.

@John110000 @patanna Actually, Greece IS running a budget surplus at about the level needed, by the bye. And this isn't a real peer-reviewed publication. In any event, neither Blyth nor Varoufakis are "leading" political economists. Blyth has more real publications and is an actual scholar, 1/
@John110000 @patanna but Varoufakis is a pol w/ a PhD. As this thread began w/ my voicing the insanity of #Brexit (with which u seem to agree), then I'm unclear what we r debating. That the #EU should write off some more Greek debt (inevitable). That some kind of #Lexit was possible (prob not). ?? 🤷‍♂️

13. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Good morning all! 🙂 Morning in Copenhagen - listening to Ludovico while I'm updating analyses and family sleeps. Fantastic piece of music: #AllisGood
Time for some #HZupdates. Let's take a look at the market from the way I see it. Where is that deflation, I have been forecasting? Did CBs succeed to do their magic and eliminate that threat? What about the Kondratiev's winter - over/done? Stay tuned! 🙂
AUDUSD is inflation gauge. Rally=inflation up; Decline=inflation down. LT perspective looks like this. Decline in 2008 = wave A. Rally up to 2011 = wave B. We have since been in wave C. Wave 5 will take us to ~0.5. Note the horizontal line. When this goes -->free fall #HZupdates

Although process still ongoing, here some (preliminary) thoughts/ideas reflecting lessons from current (s)election of #EU leadership. Thread acknowledges that there is no 'perfect process' & assumes that Lisbon Treaty won't be (fundamentally) reformed in foreseeable future:
(1) #Spitzenkandidaten process suffered damage but it is here to stay. #GenieIsOutOfTheBottle: political parties will stick to it. BUT: process needs to be (continuously) reformed in light of previous experience while adapting to specific circumstances at beginning of new cycle;
(2) Key innovation of #Spitzenkandidaten process: introduction of #TransnationalList incl. all lead candidates. Voters should have 2nd vote to choose 'favourite' candidate from #EU-wide list. Innovation should apply in 2024 -> #EP / COM-P / (European) Council should endorse it.

Interesting..The only update that we have on the abrupt cancellation of Pence's trip to NH bc he had to remain in DC at the last minute, is that it's not medical. So we still know nothing-except this ⤵️And reports that Putin also cancelled something abruptly today.
2-Oh, and about 3 1/2 hrs ago, the EU #EU Commission Security Council was called for an emergency meeting...
Iran?
3-Lots of folks are asking if it's Trump.. we don't know. His last tweet was about an hour before Pence's trip was cancelled.

1/6:Wenige Twitterstyle-Gedankenfetzen zum Thema und Gejammer über d. #EUCO :
1. Wir #EU 🇪🇺-Bürger* haben über die künftige Zusammensetzung des Parlaments abgestimmt! Es gibt keine Direktwahl des Präsidenten; so wie wir in DE🇩🇪 auch nicht den Kanzler/die Kanzlerin direkt wählen!
2. Es kommt darauf an, dass der vorgeschlagene Kandidat die erforderliche Mehrheit im Parlament erhält. Es ist kein Mangel an Demokratie bzw. auch kein Verrat am Wählerwillen, wenn nicht der Spitzenkandidat der größten Fraktion gewählt wird.
3. Sollte z.B. #Timmermanns der künftige Vorsitzende werden, also die erforderliche Mehrheit im Parlament erhalten, hätte er dieselbe demokratische Legitimation, wie Weber usw.

The UK continues to attract more foreign direct investment projects than any other country in Europe, despite #Brexit

A nice little #ThursdayThoughts feelgood THREAD on why the UK is stronger than ever. 🇬🇧💪🏼

gov.uk/government/new…
[2] Figures from the Department for International Trade published yesterday show 1,782 new inward investment projects were recorded in 2018/19, creating over 57,000 new jobs and safeguarding nearly 7,000 jobs in the UK.
[3] The figures also show UK regions increasing their share of total UK FDI projects since 2016/17. The Midlands Engine and Northern Powerhouse regions saw a 2.6 percentage point and 1.4 percentage point increase in their total share of UK projects.

Der Arbeitskreis Verteidigung der @AfDimBundestag hat sein Papier zur "Streitkraft Bundeswehr. Der Weg zur Verteidigungsfähigkeit Deutschlands" vorgelegt. Ich werde versuchen, in diesem thread ( und bitte wirklich um Entschuldigung, wenn er zu lang geraten sollte), /2
die wichtigsten Aussagen wiederzugeben und das, ohne Schaum vor dem Mund. Aber ich werde sie natürlich auch bewerten. Zunächst einmal mein erster Eindruck. Das Papier richtet sich an die Soldat*Innen in der #Bundeswehr, es richtet sich weniger an eine breite Öffentlichkeit. /3
Damit scheint es mir Teil der Kampagne der AfD zu sein, sich als "Partei der Bundeswehr" zu profilieren. Kommen wir zum Inhalt. Ausgangspunkt ist die Beobachtung, das die Bundeswehr nach 1990 kaputtgespart wurde. Zunächst mal /4

Hearing many exaggerations these days. So, here an attempt to put things into perspective: (1) yes, (s)election of new #EU leadership involves power politics in #EP & #EUCO & between them, but that's how politics & democracy function – at all levels incl. #EU – get used to it;
(2) yes, #Spitzenkandidaten process not perfect, but it is here to stay although it needs to be reformed before 2024 #EP elections (incl. introduction of #TransnationalList) – 2019 experience should provide lessons to everyone (including European & national political parties);
(3) yes, #EP increasingly runs risk of being sidelined in leadership (s)election process, but majority in Parliament can still agree on common candidate for COM-P, who has a chance to be nominated by #EUCO;

Wahrscheinlich nerve ich Euch mit meiner Post aus #Kroatien schon. Heute kommt mein vorerst letzter Thread/Tweet aus dem Land, daß mich einfach nicht loslassen will. Versprochen! Dieser Thread muß einfach sein, ist so ne Art Selbstheilung.
Ich war heute in #Žegar. Das ist eine Gegend, etwa 70 km östlich von #Zadar, in der 1991 4.347 Bewohner registriert waren. Davon waren 17 KroatenInnen, 4 nannten sich JugoslawenInnen und 14 waren unter Sonstige dokumentiert. Der Rest, 4.312 Menschen, waren ethnische Serben.
Heute leben in der Region Žegar weniger als 50 Menschen, ausschliesslich Serben die seit Anfang der 2000er Jahre auf ihr Eigentum zurückgekehrt sind. Vor 1991 waren das zum größten Teil Bauern, die die Region Zadar mit Nahrungsmitteln versorgt haben. Heute sind das gebrochene ...

#iuventaLog

Two years ago today, we were patrolling in the Central Mediterranean, the deadliest border of the world. We didn't know it yet, but we were spied on by an undercover cop. Now we risk 20 years in prison. This is what really happened on 18 June 2017:

Handover on the bridge of the #IUVENTA, the new night watch takes over. Captain Dariush is still fast asleep, getting some rest before this first day of the mission. Today, some things will happen that will affect him for years to come.
[04:19] The night watch reports the current position of the rescue ship #IUVENTA to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Center (MRCC) in Rome. Nothing extraordinary, just daily morning routine to ensure good cooperation. After all, the crew is here for a reason.

Super thrilled to announce that "Did #Austerity cause #brexit?" has just been accepted for publication at the @AEAjournals in the American Economic Review. Short thread on whole paper available here wrap.warwick.ac.uk/106313/...
The paper traces the rapid rise of #UKIP after 2010, and the developing of anti-establishment and growing polarisation along key socio-economic divides over time.
And highlights that #austerity policies, in particular, the hollowing out of the welfare state since 2010 induced many individuals to adopt anti-establishment sentiment -- these were successfully channeled into votes for #Leave and #UKIP

#Meningitis is no doubt a serious disease, but as they push mass #vaccination for this uncommon disease (although already 10% of US teens 16-18 #vaxxed so far), I sense there may be an underlying agenda here too. A victim here: eyes on pillow. Coincidental 1-eye selfportrait.
Take all 70 vaccine shot, Americans! You're most the vaccinated in the world, but none of the supposed "health" to show for it. Highest neonate and infant #vaccination rate, but one of the highest childhood mortality, which under 2 years old, is mainly #SIDS. Aka #VaccineDeath.
Been looking at #Poland, with a very high #childhoodmortality vs rest of Europe, and one of the most aggressive and wide MANDATORY #vaccination programs. You can get FINES for not complying €2500 per "missed shot" up to €12.500. Insanity. #Polska #forcedvaccination #szczepienia

Aaaand there we have it...

@RoryStewartUK believes the #SingleMarket would be a "big mistake", b/c...

...immigration.

He'd be happy with a #CustomsUnion, as long as it didn't involve...

immigration.

He's as much an anti-immigration Tory as the rest of them.

#Marr

[00:37]
@RoryStewartUK As if to underline his non-#SingleMarket, Leaver credentials, @RoryStewartUK says:-

"I want to leave all the institutions of the #EU".

I'll repeat the reason he gave in my previous clip:-

>>Immigration.<<

#Marr

[00:32]
@RoryStewartUK A few clips from @RoryStewartUK on @LBC, where he chose to display his true colours.

1) Under that urbane exterior, he just wants to "get [#Brexit] done".

To "get back our sovereignty" and "get back control of our borders".

I thought the govt WP said UK was always sovereign?
