Philippe Marlière (@PhMarliere): "Suella Braverman, ministre de l’intérieur britannique: “Dormir dans la rue est un choix de vie personnel”. #BrexitBritain https://www.theguardian.com/society/2023/nov/04/suella-braverman-says-rough-sleeping-is-lifestyle-choice" | nitter
@druid This isn’t a brag - like much of my anger it is grief that #BrexitBritain is being so grievously shortchanged by a corrupt government who could/should invest for a safer, more prosperous future but have freely chosen to betray their country with greed and have stolen the futures of the younger generation.

UK facing ‘brain drain’ of cancer researchers after failure to join EU scheme
Delay joining the #Horizon Europe programme making it more difficult to attract and retain the brightest scientists
Sunak’s ‘stop the boats’ pledge has sunk to new depths – and it’s unworkable
Even though the Illegal Migration Bill is now law, making it work will be almost impossible
#BrexitBritain "Now I am worried for my children. Thinking about what we had then and what we have now is soul-destroying. There is nothing here to inspire them. There are no benefits for them here." https://inews.co.uk/inews-lifestyle/accept-messed-up-sons-future-voting-brexit-2535728
An interesting and accurate analogy by Aditya Chakrabortty in The Guardian. Briton isn’t all smiles and wealth. It’s become a cesspool of corruption, destitution, greed, and sycophantism. Anywhere else in the world, the people would be in open revolt, but that’s just not British! Time to stare that portrait in the face.
'UK has turned its back on EU guidelines regarding safe level of Bisphenol A in plastic containers. Chemical linked to low sperm counts and infertility in men as well as breast and prostate cancer.' @LondonEconomic

🇬🇧 😩 'Train passengers face losing access to wifi after the government told rail companies to stop providing the service unless they can demonstrate its business case. :blobnom:
The move is being pushed by the Department for Transport (DfT) in order to cut costs as it looks to “reform all aspects of the railway”.' 🧐
'A legal letter of intent was signed by the DHSC on 4 September 2020, which guaranteed a multimillion-pound payment to Ecolog even if a full contract was not issued.
The following year the DHSC decided it did not want to proceed and gave Ecolog £38m in settlement for “mobilisation costs”, including a “profit component”. The DHSC confirmed that no services were provided by the company.'

Taking control! 🧐
'Like the Chichester BID, there are many spaces in the UK that appear to be public space but are actually privately owned or managed – in London alone these include the 13 acres of the South Bank and Granary Square in King’s Cross. In these areas, private security guards enforce rules imposed by landlords, rather than those set by the local authority. This means they have little accountability'

Revolut’s co-founders have launched a blistering attack on the UK as a place to run a business, saying they wouldn’t consider listing in London.
The utter damage this #ToryFascistDictatorship will do before getting booted just gets worse. After a TWENTY FIVE year ban, the bunch of twisted dicks are dropping the ban on cosmetic #AnimalTesting.

It is time!
The first thing I heard this morning is that police are to be given powers to deal with ‘slow walkers’. Yes, really! Protesting by walking slowly needs to be dealt with, apparently. Watch out #BrexitBritain. They’re coming for you!
Ireland booms while Brexit Britain whimpers next door
While Joe Biden visits Ireland, Brexiteers said their closest EU neighbour would be “doomed” – now it’s set to be the top-performing economy in Europe this year
What does 13 years of Conservative minority rule get you, apart from a trashed economy and the loss of the right to live, love and work in 28 other countries?
Food and non-alcoholic drink prices rise to their highest rate in over 45 years:
"The nakedly partisan attacks on Gary Lineker backfired. Such unabashed liberal dissent from a popular figure has been missing from political discourse. This is, in part, because the Labour party had not summoned the moral courage to say the right thing. Mr Lineker ought to be congratulated for shaming the opposition into action."
‘David Cameron made the referendum policy because he didn’t want to risk losing 10 or 15 seats to UKIP and look where it has got us’
This 16-year-old says the Conservative Party are responsible for Brexit. #bbcqt
This is from 2019 but is still so relevant.
Politically in or out of Europe: is that even a question?
It is irresponsible and misleading to pretend that the UK is not part of a complex web of political relationships with #Europe
This from Feb 2022
...even the Daily Mail!
Great article by @iainoverton on the Tory government’s willingness to do Free Trade Deals with countries on their human rights watch list, as they desperately try to make #Brexit work.

Just heard a traction engine drive past, I guess that's one way to deal with the petrol problems. #BrexitBritain
amazing how a large trading bloc can get a deal with a major country without conceding on standards, while a small isolated country desperate for a deal probably will
Well, well, well!
While #Brexiters waffle about supposed #trade opportunities for #BrexitBritain , the EU gets its deal with the USA (without conceding on standards) while Britain doesn’t get anywhere near.
Europe together has…
