We’ve won the Dubs amendment on reuniting child refugees with their families by 300 to 220 - well done @AlfDubs! And bad show, Tory govt that refused to concede, with no decent explanation

House of Lords votes to reinstate govt obligation to attempt to negotiate family reunion for unaccompanied child asylum seekers with EU.

Exactly, there seems to be this expectation that the EU will offer us a tariff-free, quota-free deal just because "it's also in their interest". Without asking for something substantial in return. We need to understand just how unprecedented such FTA would be /1 https://twitter.com/SimonFraser00/status/1218970804634951681 …

I fear that someone has upset Anna sufficiently that she's now going to tell a few home truths about the future UK-EU relationship. She's right of course.

IoD is urging govt to publish clear negotiating objectives for the next phase of #Brexit talks, as new survey data finds a clear majority of our members dont think the withdrawal agreement is enough on its own to unlock biz investment/planning decisions https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jan/21/business-leaders-urge-government-to-publish-aims-for-brexit-deal …

55% said they cd only make business planning/investment decisions once new UK-EU relationship was clear vs 35% who said current #Brexit WA was sufficient to do so. Also, directors more likely by 3-1 to say EU negs more imp to their biz than new trade deals

This paragraph is not correct though despite being the new Brexiteer mantra. The Single Market has multiple identities (recall all those Brexit supporting businesses proclaiming it didn't really exist in their area), and there's no global trend away from (or towards) EU approach

Yes, this idea that the rest of the world operates on the basis of equivalence and mutual recognition whereas only the strange EU prefers harmonisation is entirely unsupported by evidence. It’s not a thing.

As noted in tweet below, UYS, supplier to Honda, has confirmed in its UK annual report that it is shutting down operations in UK, in consultations with union regarding the 200 jobs there since July 2019. Obviously this is not directly because of Brexit - but... 1/2 https://twitter.com/pernilleru/status/1203961209244000256 …

If the EU can't offer a deal as good as other trade partners (USA, Japan etc) then it'll show what their real agenda is. https://twitter.com/AnnaJerzewska/status/1209138184099119104 …

It's not really about "agendas". We will no longer be a member of the EU. All countries try to protect their own interests during trade negotiations. They look to get as much as possible while sacrificing as little as possible when it comes to their own sensitive sectors 1/2

Anna is right, and with time and distance adding an equivalent tariff to products, dropping your tariffs to 0 for New Zealand is not equivalent to dropping your tariffs to 0 for the 6th biggest economy on your doorstep. (Unless you can secure a level playing field)

That you fantastic people have now donated over £2,000 to @the3million through @eucitizenschamp to get my album is the greatest Christmas present ever (except maybe guitars or pedals). I really can’t tell you how grateful I am for your support, and for the lovely comments.

Also "EU standard" is a massive plus when exporting to other markets. People like EU standard, recognizing it means high quality.

This is a very good point - I've heard it from companies - made in the EU, EU standard all this is viewed as a quality mark in some countries.

State of Lexiter thinking. A leftist Brexit involves doing three vaguely-defined things, all of which could have been done inside the EU, and two of which would seem to require the government spending that’s decried in the very next sentence.

Official statistics are not always easy to find. So here are some statistics on salmonella, as it was apparently claimed in Parliament that the US does much better than the UK in terms of salmonella-deaths. (Thread)

How Brexit looks to @lemondefr - no party has explained what is at stake in dismantling thousands of links with EU. “The British, blindfolded, have given the keys to the kingdom to a man who has not told them what kind of relations he wishes to preserve with the continent.”

My long-ish thoughts on the challenges ahead in UK-EU relations - the UK will clearly leave the EU in January, but finding a new normal relationship will take time and is about more than negotiating a trade deal... https://ecipe.org/blog/uk-election-2019-what-it-means-for-brexit-and-future-uk-eu-relations/ …

Several people have asked about this news report and are understandably concerned. I’ll try to do something on it later, but what is immediately clear is that this report is lacking critical information, and appears designed to enrage rather than inform.

The thing about the apparent UK plan to not talk very much about the negotiations on the future relationship is that there are two sides to a negotiation, and the other side will most certainly talk about the negotiations.

Not the idiot’s actual name; not the right spelling of the place (KempSton); not the right Chairman of the Party... In short, this is total bollocks - but some ppl who should know better are promoting it as true because they’re desperate for attack stories.
