Brexit: Thousands take part in Rejoin the EU march to demand the country overturn Leave | The Independent

@wellingtonrock Well, I’m still avoiding the UK webshops… #brexit

Do tell when you’ve got shipping and customs back to something half reasonable. 🥳 🤭

Because there are things I would like to buy from you guys. But as it is that is simply not an option. 🥴

🚨Business Chiefs urge Labour to consider fantastic plan to #RejoinEU under new membership scheme🚨

Bosses of the BMPA, Cold Chain Federation & the British Chambers of Commerce, welcomed any proposals which would reduce #Brexit trade friction

Under the Associate Membership Plan, outer-tier countries would be expected to contribute to the EU’s annual budget in exchange for participation in the bloc’s single market, which #EU insider's say was designed with #Labour in mind

It's clear "off the table" is the most important part of every party manifesto. "Sitting on the fence" and kicking the can down the road" come a close 2nd and 3rd.

I think more emphasis should be put on "don't you know there is a war on" and we are all "recovering from a pandemic"

Are you sure that the EU would want the UK back? After all the petulant & bad faith behaviour shown by so many British politicians during the Brexit negotiations? Once bitten, twice shy...


I shake head at the Brexit nutters who claim we lost and should move on and never mention Brexit again. Same for people who voted for London Rule in the Scottish independence referendum. Why should anyone who has any beliefs, "move on"? Should we we stop supporting our local team if they not won a trophy for many years? Should people who wanted an end to slavery or votes for women have given up because things weren't easy? "Move on" is a strange idea.

@ChrisMayLA6 post-#Brexit #UK …the Taiwan of #Europe ?

Quite apart from other problems caused by #Brexit, there is a likelihood that in #geopolitical terms, the move to leave the EU may have been a major mistake in strategic terms.

If the world (as Simon Tisdall, plausibly suggests) is starting to coalesce into competing (large scale, continental) blocs, then being a disconnected island off the shore of Europe may be less 'freedom from' & more 'vulnerability to' other states' strategic decisions - post imperial hubris?

Neither BBC News nor any other British broadcast media gave any coverage of the HUGE Rejoin EU demonstration in London yesterday. This is a combination of state editorial control (BBC bosses are Tory party donors), media mogul control (more Tory party donors) and news being an advertising business, not a public service.

Ironically we have to leave it to France state news channel to report on it.

I have had this "dream" for over 30 years, to at least once be at The Last Night of The Proms in RAH. But the 9th of September went by and I wasn't there. Once again. So at least THAT is a tradition. But #theproms is not what they used to be. Gone is the "post-war" feeling and "come together" between nations. Some beautiful pieces, the crowd is there, but not the expression of "all of us". Even more so now post #brexit #bbc #sirhenrywood #britain

Bloody annoying hard #Brexit. I tried to send a letter with some photos to Germany and it was returned to me due missing customs declaration, even though the post office staff told me I don't need one... 😠🤷

The major channels rarely report demonstrations with just "tens of thousands" of law abiding attendees

I went on the 2 million march against the Iraq War and the biggest of the B*** to #Brexit marches which were hundreds of thousands before the event & they barely got coverage either. I think this is faux outrage about BBC coverage - the event is just not that newsworthy

Here in continental Europe we have to be thankful that Britain did the stupidest, stupidest thing and left the EU.

Thank you so, so much for demonstrating to each and every citizen in every other member state the value of being in the EU and the cost of leaving it.

UK is welcome back to our club any time. Just need to adopt a few simple rules:

No government corruption
€ currency
No rebate
No tax havens

These two dinosaurs are typical of the Daily-Mail-reading moron that you'll find in every British immigrant ghetto in Spain - incapable of critical thinking and breathtakingly selfish.

Whilst they might not have been affected by the 90 days in 180 rule, because presumably they got their paperwork done in time, other Britons wanting to move to #Spain to live & work today have HUGE hurdles to jump.

🚨Labour rejects claims it wants to ‘unpick #Brexit’ after Starmer EU comments🚨

What Starmer actually said:

"There's currently no case for rejoining the EU, so Labour will focus on making Brexit work better". The operative word is CURRENTLY!

How can Brexit be better without rejoining the EU, Single Market or Customs Union? Closer alignment. It's implied!

There's no seat at the EU table or votes, but our views will be acknowledged

Has anyone damaged western, English-speaking democracies over the last 20-odd years worse than Rupert Murdoch?

“the media mogul had created an “anger-tainment ecosystem” that had left the US “angrier and more divided than it’s been at any time since the civil war”.

[…] without Fox and News Corp, Britain probably would not have exited the European Union and Donald Trump would not have been president.”

2/ But there's a few issues.

1. Lifelong Eurosceptic #Corbyn was in charge of an 80% pro-EU #Labour Party

2. Jezza was leader, so regardless of what was suggested to him by his shadow cabinet, it was HIS decision to make a #Brexit confirmatory referendum party policy.

3. Jezza resigned.

4. #Starmer threw his leadership cap in the ring & won.

5. Starmer had to modify his message to reform, heal & rebuild Labour.

The point WM keep making is #Scotland got their wish in 2014 & the Scots rejected it.

The #Tories have used the same reasoning for not having a confirmatory #Brexit vote, as they have for not granting another #ScottishIndependence referendum

How you get around this is beyond me. I honestly don't know what the answer is seeing as polls show roughly the same figures to remain part of the #UK as they did in 2014

It's up to the Scots to make a stronger case I guess 🤷🏾‍♂️

@AnthonyFStevens We've seen the catastrophy of #Brexit - which Scotland voted resoundingly against; we've seen thirteen years of quite astonishing incompetence and corruption under the #Conservatives; we're about to see a continuation of more or less exactly the same policies under #Labour.

Most people don't start to think seriously about the #ScottishIndependence question until a referendum is called; when it's called, there will again be a broad, vibrant grass roots campaign.

@Indyposterboy the perils of empty promises in manifesto-free referenda. One question, and people will literally make up anything to persuade you to vote one way or the other.
Hmmm, why does #Brexit spring to mind?! 🤔

Simon Kuper (FT) suggests the one thing that #Brexit has delivered is a realistic assessment of the UK's place in the world:

'at last, the UK knows what it is: a small country that needs immigrants, high taxes & European allies... The government lags behind ordinary people in absorbing this self-knowledge'!

I think this re-assesment might have come earlier if people (and the media especially) had focussed not on headline GDP (ranked 6th-ish) but GDP-per capita (around 22nd in the world!)
