Revealed: How Leave.EU faked migrant footage

 

16 Apr 2019

 

The pro-Brexit campaign group, Leave.EU, faked a viral video and appear to have staged photos of “migrants”, shortly before the EU referendum.

An investigation by Channel 4 News found that images purporting to show “migrants” attacking young women in London seem to have been staged.

The group – backed by businessman Arron Banks – was also behind a fake video, claiming to show how easy it is for migrants to sneak into Britain. In reality, satellite data shows the men on board had not left UK waters.

The photographs and video both involved a former SAS soldier, Jonathan Pollen, who works for Banks’ corporate intelligence agency.

He's the quintessential sociopath.

Brexit deal could be done in "next few days", top Conservative says

 

May 4, 2019

 

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May could reach a Brexit deal with the opposition Labour Party within days, a leading Conservative Party figure said on Saturday, after senior ministers urged compromise following poor local election results.

Ruth Davidson, the Conservatives’ leader in Scotland, told party members that a cross-partisan agreement on Brexit was needed before this month’s European elections, or Britain’s major parties would face an even bigger backlash from voters.

The Conservatives lost 1,332 seats on English local councils that were up for re-election, and Labour - which would typically aim to gain hundreds of seats in a mid-term vote - instead lost 81.

Hopes of imminent Brexit deal fade after 'tense' cross-party talks

Source: The Guardian


Hopes are fading that a cross-party Brexit deal could be struck within days after Labour sources described Tuesday’s three-hour round of talks as “the most robust to date”.

Labour’s negotiating team was irked by leaks to Sunday newspapers about concessions Theresa May was preparing to make, which they believe amounted to little more than a rehash of the existing deal.

According to Labour sources, John McDonnell and Keir Starmer spent much of the meeting unpicking the government’s claim to have softened its position in recent weeks, with the atmosphere becoming “quite tense” at times.

By contrast, a Downing Street spokesman described the discussions as “constructive and detailed”, adding: “The teams have agreed to meet again for follow-up talks tomorrow afternoon, recognising the need to resolve the current Brexit deadlock in parliament,”.

Its good to have a counterweight to the "Brexit means Brexit" level of political discourse on the other side I guess?

 

It would be cool if they weren't so fixed on using remain as a wedge to get back into power/political relevance.

 

If they were sincere about stopping Brexit they'd all be working to form a coalition of remain parties with Greens, Plaid, Scots, SNP Etc. 

 

but doesn't look like any of them are wiling to work together on it so we'll probably  be hearing a lot about how the brexit party "Won" the EU elections with 30% of the vote or whatever, regardless of what the total remain vote comes to.

Brexit talks between Labour and the Conservatives have ended without agreement, following six weeks of cross-party debate.

 

Jeremy Corbyn says negotiations have "gone as far as they can."

 

So that's it, then. We're back on the path of no-deal Brexit, a legal certainty by October (or probably sooner if the clown gets in), unless Article 50 is revoked or extended.

 

I see the pound is tanking again –

'One last chance' to get Brexit done, says May
 
Theresa May has told MPs they have "one last chance" to deliver Brexit, as she set out a "new Brexit deal".
 
MPs will get a vote on whether to hold another referendum if they back the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, she said.
 
The bill also contains new guarantees on workers' rights, environmental protections and the Irish backstop as well as a customs "compromise".
 
If MPs reject the bill, she warned them a negotiated exit would be "dead in the water" and Brexit could be stopped.

We need a ranked choice referendum with

 

  • "Cancel Brexit",
  • "Negotiated deal",
  • "No Deal". 

 

You can vote for any or all options, you must vote for at least one. If you vote more than one you need to rank them in order of preference. 

 

If no option gets 50% of the population supporting it, even as a second or third choice, then we would be screwed but otherwise it should solve the issue. 

 

We could add a "Labour gets to try and negotiate a softer deal" option if we have to in order to get them on board.

This is very bad, if true.

 

No-deal Brexit would be even more likely.

 

May is a terrible leader, but the likes of Johnson and other hard-Brexiters are 100 times worse. All they'd have to do is run down the clock until October.
