The Good Friday Agreement was approved in a referendum by 71.1% in Northern Ireland and 94.4% in Ireland. The PM plans to rewrite it to give effect to a referendum on a vague idea, disfigured by cheating and lies, and supported by only 52%.
Could someone explain what the 'consequences' would be if Brexit is cancelled?
And how these might be even remotely as bad as the known consequences of it happening at all?
The Commons will have to resolve where #Brexit goes next, given the PM seems frozen to the spot
But the other EU27 countries will want a *reason* for extending the Article 50 timetable
We can’t risk ducking that, or kicking-the-can down the road continuously...
The problem with very good points made @YvetteCooperMP on @BBCr4today is that the EU has made clear just because MPs want an extension it won’t happen unless for a GE or ref. MPs have had 31 months to decide
Exposing the shills, charlatans & traitors involved in this fraudulent Brexit delusion. #brexitshambles #brexitscam
@J_amesp @brexit_sham The complete morons in the pub last night convince me that you're right. Every single thing they were saying was wrong. It's astonishing because they are NOT uninformed, it's quite clear that they have been deliberately misinformed by sources they think are true
The Prime Minister has just suggested that farmers in Wales wouldn’t mind a no deal Brexit. This is what NFU Cymru said in Sept: “the impact of a no-deal Brexit scenario on Welsh farming would be devastating.”
Jacob Rees-Mogg refused to answer simple questions from @mrjamesob & says we should listen to Brexit economist Patrick Minford. On the UK car industry Minford said “you are going to have to run it down...in same way we ran down the coal & steel industries. These things happen!”
A massive social media push is being co-ordinated between an assortment of Leave groups, all pushing WTO (No deal). Engagements in the millions and absolutely trouncing All counter messaging.
Hence what you keep seeing in polls and audience comments. It’s not suicide but murder.
We are witnessing a SHOCKING rise in lies, spin & completely false statements from a Government which grows more desperate by the day. We must call this out, we must make sure people know the TRUTH & that’s what @CWUnews intends to do
Brace for mega thread on "ALL THEM RULES INNIT"
There is a type of of brexiter who is motivated not by xenophobia, or Empire nostalgia, or buccaneering trade fantasies, but instead by "all them EU rules". Sadly they can never name a single one. So I have done some research...

.@peterkyle - There's an ultra small minority of very right wing people who are trying to undermine social cohesion in this country to try and prevent a #PeoplesVote... when did the Tory party start running away from fascists rather than standing up to them?
Anna Soubry - This just isn't good enough.. this whole process is now turning our country into a laughing stock.. the people of this country are worried and business has no certainty.. here we are with another week of can kicking & nothing has changed.
Justine Greening - Isn't it time for all of us to be honest, Parliament has run out of road... the only people who can deliver a resolution on #Brexit are the British people.

Michel Barnier - The red lines are Britain's red lines... these red lines shut the doors... if these red lines move we will also move... immediately.

Simon Coveney(Irish foreign minister) - The EU position is the Irish position & vice versa... it's been made very clear, repeatedly, that the withdrawal agreement is not up for renegotiation... you cannot put a time limit on the back stop.

Dominic Grieve - I'm simply trying to tweak the standing orders to allow the HoC to express its opinion... the government just doesn't want the expression of any opinion that might conflict with what it itself is trying to do...
