    I really should stop reading Twitter tbh. It's too depressing.

    @Technoishmatt they need money, grants and free trade.

    The only way to stop the migrant crisis is by help Africa develop. Instead, Africa gets damaged by poor EU trade deals and EU countries protecting their own industry's by the vast amount of free subsidies which means Afraican countries cannot compete.

    Yeah, the precedents being established by this whole shitshow, from the 'debate' to the way the government is a staggering mess of infighting and partisan idiocy, are... depressing.

    @LetsGoAGAIN EU is the largest aid donor in the world, and it provides preferential trade access to African developing countries. Now also working in G20 context on a Compact for Africa, which is about creating jobs (so that people have something to stay for...).

    Just sayin'...

    Nah, he's sort of right. If we fuck our economy enough people will stop coming here, and maybe we'll start emigrating to Africa and working for the farmers there for shite wages and they'll get rich and Africa will be well good.

    So Ringo Starr is a bit of a Brexiter then, and quite a dim witted one to boot.

    Ah well, never liked the Beatles anyway.

    I liked how he responded to the question of "why?" - "because I think it's great".

    Deep.

    To be fair, he's never really come across as an intellectual colossus.

    To be fair he's got the inside track on the dirty dealings of the EU living all the way in tax haven Monaco. Man of the people here.

    Whoa

    "
    If the withdrawal bill is passed as it stands, May will be able to make laws by decree and reverse and adapt primary legislation without consulting Parliament. It is the greatest attack on the British constitution in at least a century. Parliamentary sovereignty—the very thing that Brexiteers said they were voting for in leaving the E.U.—may be about to be vastly reduced by a cabal of right-wing Conservatives who say they are obeying the people’s will."

    God this country really does have a boner for wanting be ruled over by it's perceived betters doesn't it? I don't want to believe it, but the fact that the population continually votes for people who actively work to screw them over speaks volumes about the mindset of the British people.

    That's a bit of an exaggeration but it is a very bad bill for accountability. Even some of the people who supported it said so.

    It's fucking bizarre isn't it? I've heard people actually say they'd like to have a drink with Rees-Mogg. The only way he'd have a drink with you is if he was drinking tea and you were serving it to him, as his butler, but you weren't drinking with him, you were instead standing there in complete silence, waiting on him.

    Lets hope so. Their habit of introducing retroactive laws when it suits them and buying power doesn't bode well for them not messing about with laws as much as they can. Interesting situation or probably terrifying is the better word.

    Given how these things out them taking the committee majorities is probably a bigger problem in the immediate future. Although having the ability to overreach with statutory instruments is going to be a bother.

    Fucking Rees Mog... increased use of food banks is 'rather uplifting'.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/sep/14/jacob-rees-mogg-increased-use-food-banks-rather-uplifting

    What a cunt.

    Nothing to do with the rise in poverty as a result of frozen pay in the public sector, welfare cuts, and rising cost of living.
