: this poster makes no sense; just look at how fucking cool that chicken is https://t.co/mJb3epYDka
At least Twitter Remainers are honest enough to admit that their sole objective is to stay in the EU. The MPs and peers who pretend that the customs union is all about the Irish border show no such candour.
Remember, too, the volunteers from India, 15,000 of whom served alongside their allies in the Dardanelles campaign. https://t.co/2ryStidnGM
It's easy to say, as Corbyn keeps doing, that anti-Semitism is unacceptable. But isn't there a horrible possibility that it will prove perfectly acceptable, in the sense that the politicians who have made a place for it will pay little electoral price?
Britain suffered even worse casualties than its sister nations: https://t.co/w1GY4qhHJ1
As for your bizarre Tweet about Turks not taking prisoners, I suggest Alan Morehead's excellent history of the #Gallipoli
campaign. Or look at contemporary reports. https://t.co/Bx5LAZms7V
, recall the bravery of our allies and cousins who crossed half the world to fight alongside us in our need.
If your objective were to make the Irish border unobtrusive, you'd take Switzerland rather than Turkey as your starting point. Of course, if your real objective were to sabotage Brexit by any means available... https://t.co/4hx3qcPep7
Spot on. Turkey (in the customs union) has a far harder border than Switzerland (outside it). Which is why - and the leak in the Times today confirms the EU knows it - CU membership wouldn't eliminate the Irish border. The answer is mutual recognition within a deep UK-EU FTA. https://t.co/gteRCbTqTB
Oh, I missed rather an important one. Total borrowing is back to where it was before the crisis, and we are now running a primary surplus. https://t.co/NkOHCpUKTy
Look around Parliament Square and one conclusion is unmissable. *No statue looks good in trousers*. There are various ways around it: Churchill's greatcoat, Canning's toga, Derby's robe. Plus, now, #MillicentFawcett

Brussels confirms it. Staying in the customs union will not solve the Irish border issue. It’s using a sledgehammer to miss a nut. https://t.co/HhEJazEmMb
The kind of people being smug would, you’d think, go on to say that he’s a wonderful icon for a nation that has a civil rather than an ethnic self-identification. Oddly, they rarely do. https://t.co/xyXVTiKmiQ
Lenin's useful idiots tended to be Marxists. Putin's are just as likely to be fascists. https://t.co/H8FhDRPcsM
Turkey is in the customs union, yet it has heavily policed borders with the EU. Norway and Switzerland are not, and have free-movement deals with their neighbours like that between Ireland and the U.K. Their borders are largely unmanned and invisible. https://t.co/126Hw1CzJv
As a matter of fact, our post-Einsteinian notion of time - as something we would perceive as a block if we had Godlike vision, rather than being trapped by the limitations of our evolved senses - is in some ways anticipated in Macbeth's "bank and shoal of time" soliloquy.
How soon the blossom falls. How wistful the beauty in ephemeral things. https://t.co/w6JRNmhSjn
"How like a God". Today, we mark the birth of the greatest mind humanity has known. https://t.co/FauYj5KTdK https://t.co/EMpbHPkPpH
Leaving the EU while staying in the customs union is the worst of all worlds. Worse than full EU membership. That is precisely why some MPs and peers are pushing it. https://t.co/cbLyWStMVT
To quote Lord Denning’s famous summing up, it’s bluebell time in Kent. https://t.co/3F4Qgema1O
