The Lib Dems’ main aim is not stopping Brexit, it’s winning 20 or 30 more seats. If that means dividing the Remain cause, polarising the country over Brexit even further, No Deal happening, and Boris Johnson winning a majority, that’s a price worth taking for them. https://t.co/QDrpzEfvR8

Once again @BorisJohnson refers to papers being shared and a shape of deal but as @JunckerEU said today, no substantive alternatives have been proposed to the existing #Brexit agreement. https://t.co/qAcI5BnVpg

It is bollocks, but if that's the assumption in government, it explains the contempt the Johnson administration has shown towards the A.50 process and the Commission.

17.4m people voted for Brexit 🇬🇧
Just 597,080 people voted for @Xavier_Bettel 😢
If Luxembourg actually manufactured or exported anything, we’d say boycott it. But they don’t. Lazy, handout-sponging country #LetsGoWTO

The UK pays a rebated EU membership fee of £280 million a week.
According to the Institute of Fiscal Studies, UK membership of the EU single market is worth 4% more in GDP = £1.9 billion a week.
EU membership means a UK net gain of over £1.6 billion a week.
Put that on a bus.

Asked if he's promised to protect Saudi Arabia, "No I haven't…We have to sit down with the Saudis and work something out," says @POTUS. Says "that was an attack on Saudi Arabia, and that wasn't an attack on us. But we would certainly help them, they've been a great ally." pic.twitter.com/fcehrNRepL

We would not be in this crisis of escalation if Trump didn’t pull out of the Iran Deal. It’s hard to think of a clearer and more predictable failure of a signature foreign policy than Trump’ rejection of something that was working just bc it was Obama’s achievement.
