In the UK, seven Labour MPs have split from the rest of the party in protest at the party’s policies. I know talking about this is going to alienate a few of my friends in the UK, but I think I support their move. theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

Alastair PEOPLE’S VOTE Campbell
Honda. Real business. Real jobs. Real damage. Done by Brexit. Entirely predictable. The world is watching a country choose its own decline. And its leaders fail to stop it.

People should pay attention to @jimmy_wales on #bbcqt, as his views aren't shaped by political motives and he's telling it as it is. He's doing lots to promote fact-based journalism with @WikiTribune and is a champion for democratic process and dismantling authoritarian systems.

@jamesrbuk @jimmy_wales I think you have to be careful how far you're guided by polls on this. First because politics is dynamic. For example, had you said in 2012 that Labour would have no Scottish seats in 2015 you'd have been deemed mad.

@NimkoAli @jamesrbuk No question that it is much harder to be sure. But nuclear bomb shocks to the system like Brexit does provide the best opportunity.

*Massively* under-appreciated political point:

If Brexit happens in the next few months, there is almost zero incentive for either major political party to split afterwards. Things could fizzle out *fast*.

Replying to @jamesrbuk :
@jamesrbuk A new centrist party leaving behind the Jacob Rees Mogg wing of the Tories and the far left Corbynites could win an election. Politicians do like to get into power...

Mrs May’s defeat by 45 means there is now almost certainly a majority to rule out ‘no deal’ and extend Art 50 - via the new Cooper-Letwin Bill - in a fortnight. This will destroy her ‘my deal or no deal’ pretense & open the way to a second referendum.

Remainers, we are back!

Law only allows the use of a #NationalEmergency in two scenarios:
1. Declaration of war
2. Emergency requiring the use of armed forces

Not because you failed at negotiating & Mexico won't pay for your racist wall.

@LordMcConnell @Jacob_Rees_Mogg @bbcquestiontime I think my position is nuanced and balanced. Perhaps you misunderstood it. Better to ask for clarification than to disparage. Twitter is a poor model for thoughtful dialogue I know.

Imagine if Twitter were always like this...
@NathanPGoodman @ne0liberal @lindsey_brink @capturedecon People need to be clear about language and their normative "baselines." Mostly "redistribution" is used to mean progressive fiscal reallocation. Opposition to that is generally part of a package deal with support for "free markets," though they are completely different things.

Best tweet this year.
Urinals are not a thing. Men talk about urinals as if they’re a thing, but I use bathrooms in all sorts of places, every single day and I have never seen a urinal in any bathroom I’ve ever been in. Let’s be realistic about the whole “urinal” thing. https://t.co/E2reTzaE9z

Precisely.
I have no problem with Corbyn showing us the speech he made against the Iraq War many years ago. I can't therefore see the complaint in showing his speeches from many years ago *for* the IRA, for Hamas, for Hezbollah, for Chavez, in favour of a no-Army Britain, etc, etc. https://t.co/KVJFZA7Mxa

@jimmy_wales @mikebutcher @PeterBale @mathewi @craignewmark That’s my issue with a big strand of the Knight Commission report. Philanthropy cannot be a sustainable or trustworthy solution for the provision of public interest journalism.

Rightly, I’ve never seen staffers blamed in this debacle. It isn’t their fault and I’ve never read any claims anywhere that it is. It’s the fault of the leadership and the leadership alone.

@jimmy_wales @PeterBale @mathewi @craignewmark Ok, well I'll stand down. Yes, de-coupling was going to happen and yes the newspaper were pathetic and slow and yes CL and other took advantage. But philanthropy, as nice as it is, isn't the long term solution.

@jimmy_wales @mikebutcher @mathewi @craignewmark True but what News (we) also learned too late in the UK was classified where we had a “data” relationship with users and entirely failed to use it. In those days most papers were sold over the counter and classified as a real opportunity lost.

@PeterBale @mathewi @craignewmark 'Finding' was meant to be 'founding', sorry. Same general meaning. Yes, I know we wasn't responsible but forgive me if I don't shout WHOOT at his generous philanthropy, when all CL did was suck more air out of the room and make him a rich man.

@Glenndalmas @jimmy_wales @TheLastPersont2 @bbcquestiontime There were facts, and lies, and half-truths, and exaggerations laid before us. There were also things that we weren't told about, and things that weren't known. It's very complicated! And I don't blame people who believed the lies, but we know much more now. #PeoplesVoteNow
