So basically Brexit has been cancelled but we're still going to spend loads of money lose all influence over eu law lose lots of business through uncertainty lose the EMA and EBA create vast new UK-only bureaucracies foment social division and lose status. Well done Brexiteers.

"the problem of the border is not resolved at all but simply left hanging. The language on “full alignment” means different things to different people. A series of contradictory undertakings have been given" https://t.co/clYb1IQcWm via @FT

And it may well be that the Good Friday Agreement – which is why UK cannot leave the ECHR – will also be the reason why UK will not leave the Single Market.
If so, bringing peace to Northern Ireland also shaped UK's overall relationship with Europe for at least a generation.

Our inept PM gets some more international coverage. How embarrassing that Scotland’s foreign policy has been surrendered to Ms May and her team of chaotic Brexiteers. We could do so much better. #BrexitChaos https://t.co/WAxUSZuU7y via @nybooks

#Brexit #Ireland 1) No hardening of the border 2) Regulatory alignment
on the whole island 3) Respect #GoodFridayAgreement in all its parts.
However, EP will only give green light if these commitments are fully

What's happening to Britain over Brexit is heartbreaking. Britain used to be an outward looking society defined by common sense, compassion and intelligence. These positive traits have been replaced by an arrogant, ignorant and insular mentality.
It's tragic in so many ways.

I’m increasingly worried Trump may go after Mueller. As a country, we must be prepared. Congress should signal now that such action will result in impeachment. (This is the first time I’ve used the “i” word.) If Mueller is fired, we should all march and not stop until it’s fixed. https://t.co/ZnCA8j9Yk7

Just shocking. Both the act itself and the verdict.

Ex-officer Phillip Brailsford had the words "You're f*cked" inscribed on the side of the AR-15 he used to kill Daniel Shaver. The judge didn't allow the inscription to be presented as evidence.
Ask yourself why a civil servant would have a weapon with those words on it. https://t.co/gJPgJOfuit

The Brutal Police Execution of Daniel Shaver
Sadly I've studied 100s of videos of American police executing non-violent, unarmed people. This is one of the worst I've ever witnessed.
This happened in January of 2016, but the judge just released the video.
A grave injustice. pic.twitter.com/O3UjLb3mZJ
