Brexit Party MEP worries UK will no longer have a voice in Europe in last EU parliament sitting

A Brexit Party MEP has raised concerns that the UK will no longer have a voice in Europe on her last day sitting in the EU parliament.

June Mummery tweeted to announce she had attended the penultimate session of the European parliament’s fisheries committee to include British MEPs.

She said:

“The big question now is, who will be here to hold these people to account while they still control Britain’s waters, but the UK has no representation?”

The tweet has since gone viral, prompting several bewildered responses from people on social media.

“Erm…” simply replied Seb Dance, a Labour MEP.

“You really should have thought of that before,” said James Brown.

“Brexit Party MEP complains about Brexit stripping UK of influence in EU,” wrote another.

“THIS IS LITERALLY WHAT YOU VOTED FOR” complained Emma Kennedy.

Hop in a limousine, get there, have a meeeting, get driven back... At most a photo op or two. At great cost (venue, security, etc.).

Cabinet to meet in north of England next Friday, No 10 says

Next week’s cabinet meeting will take place on Friday in the north of England to mark the UK’s departure from the EU, Downing Street has said. The prime minister’s spokesman told the lobby briefing:


The prime minister and the cabinet have set out that they want to work for the entire country and they want to engage more widely across the UK and this is one of many opportunities to do so.
And get in a bit of deliberate environmental damage in the process, not to mention hammer the expense accounts

Just another sign of the times. Almac is a major pharmaceutical company situated in Craigavon NI. ..Its actually very big and if you Google map it, you will see how big. Over the last 2.5 years they have built a brand new plant, down the road from us here in Dundalk. The new plant is ,I understand fully functional ,licenced and calibrated but in mothballs, with just the warehouse in use . It is waiting for the economic climate to change. Almac make no bones about this and have referenced it on their website.

In other news, and in a rare moment of agreement all political parties in the NI Assembly ( DUP, SF,Alliance,UUP ,etc ) .. you know the one which reopened last week, have censured the Withdrawal Agreement of BJ

You should be ashamed of making fun of people with disabilities/deformities.
Cretinism is a disease.
Whilst I agree with your point about the word cretin/cretinism, it is more difficult when someone (OG in this case) is quoting someone else.

I have repeatedly complained to advertisers and media about improper use of the word. Thyroid disorders are all too close to me and mine. I feel it might be better were you to criticise Botty on Twitter.

Not my words sunshine!
Where does the word Cretin come in my post? I called him an idiot
I'm not in the habit of being ashamed of other peoples opinions, just puzzled at your odd response

The Free Press Society and it's associates posted Tommy Robinson's acceptance speech on their Facebook pages. The speech was basically about how the mainstream media, Facebook and Twitter censor people with views that they don't agree with.

Facebook responded by deleting all their accounts. In response to that, various Danish MPs posted the speech video on their Facebook and Twitter accounts with an explanation about the censorship that was going on in the media, so Tommy Robinson went to the top of the trending list on Twitter and a massive discussion about censorship ensued. Facebook couldn't really delete the accounts of the MPS, so they decided to backtrack and calm down the storm by reinstating the deleted accounts.

It seems completely ironic that the Free Press Society or whatever they're called would be censored for posting a video about censorship.

Interestingly, after the speech, TR was invited onto the main Danish TV channel for an interview, which TR secretly recorded. By his comments on the Twitter post below, it looks like they did a cut and shut job on him, which he's about to expose.
What happened to your support for the post truth world we find ourselves in?

This one made me chuckle. I don't think this guy realised the Laurence Fox was being ironic when he said that he'd been radicalised by Youtube.

An interesting point jumped out further down the page:
I researched the most viewed British politicians by name. They were, in order, Boris Johnson, Tommy Robinson and Nigel Farage. It is worth bearing in mind that Theresa May was the prime minister at the time.

No doubt some simpletons will buy this, but on previous experience, too few to be other than a handful of mugs, who are happy to be exploited like sheep.

This is what their stupidity has bought for them

Probable Loss of Workers rights

Probable? what would the point of Brexit had been than to dismantle them otherwise?

This Mp seems to have changed her mind after voting for the withdrawal bill!
And of course in the Daily Express
After the "Winners" were promised the "Easiest trade deal ever" they now complain
"
Bitter EU delivers horror threat to punish UK with 'worst ever post-Brexit trade deal'
EUROPEAN leaders look set to play hardball with Boris Johnson by offering the UK a limited trade deal based on tougher terms than those signed with Canada, Japan and other leading trade partners.
"Brussels wants to ensure that the UK does not gain a competitive advantage by diverging from EU regulations. In an attempt to pressure the British government, The Daily Telegraph has revealed that the European Commission has threatened to withhold so-called Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) if the UK seeks only a basic trade deal. MRAs are documents certifying that goods conform to European standards and facilitate the smooth movement of goods in key sectors, such as medicine and cars. "
"Brussels insists that it will not grant ‘zero tariff’ access to EU markets if the UK refuses to follow its rules on state subsidies and environmental controls.

Actually these are simply normal trading terms, the notion we can demand something on the basis we are somehow a "Special country" isn't working is it?

And in the Daily Mail
Immigration looks set to to be back where it was before the Referendum as Boris is about to back out of another Leave campaign promise
"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7911931/Downing-Street-hints-drop-post-Brexit-migrant-salary-threshold.html
Boris Johnson is poised to DROP £30,000 salary threshold for migrants after Brexit as the government insists new immigration system will be rolled out in full by January 2021
  • Theresa May wanted to impose the post-Brexit earnings threshold on migrants
  • Boris Johnson's new government has hinted it will ditch controversial proposal

Is there anything at all left of the promises made to the people who voted for Brexit? :D

that is just a consequence of their technique to keep people watching.
If you are a couch potato, you carry on watching the next 'related' video - Youtube find out that their 'echo chamber' technique works best with couch potatoes.

Everyone is a loser with respect to brexit.

The only thing is, some already know it and some have yet to realise it. (And some transient wins might serve to defer that realisation. Like being owner of a shipping company with no ships but lots of money.)

I wonder if a return to this will be another Brexit Bonus / Boris Bounce?

Upon reflection, there is probably no need for YTS now that politicians have discovered mass immigration as a means of allowing wealthy business owners to pay their employees less money. YTS was a bit, “sledgehammer” and transparent. People quickly saw through it for what it was, cheap labour, as the badge illustrates. Mass immigration is much more subtle and powerful tool. It allows those in control to spit on people and to call them a racist if they complain. This is much more effective way to silence the dissenters. Put on an “Immigration Cheap Labour” badge and you will need a canoe to paddle your way through all the spittle!
