Good summary of the awful transitional deal The Tories have agreed with the EU…/ @another_europe

The provisional transitional deal: Tory Brexit is getting closer and more dangerous, but also more beatable.

China wants Brits to treat their military strategy as an investment opportunity!

What an interconnected world we live in. Gwadar is a port in Pakistan that China is building in order to have direct access to the Indian Ocean. This means that the energy it depends upon can travel from the Middle East to China without having to go through the Strait of Malacca, which can be easily blockaded by enemy naval action. Fair enough, that’s geopolitics for you.

But what’s new, is that they are marketing Gwadar to people in Hackney as a business opportunity, via the 38,48 and 253 bus routes.

You couldn’t make it up!

Labour pretending to be pro-Remain and pro-Leave at the same time. Yet again. Yawn.

This is typical Labour, they talk remain in remain areas and talk leave in leave areas to win support whilst we continue to head towards a disastrous Brexit.
Vo...ters should look at how the Labour leadership has voted in Parliament, including Diane, and be in no doubt that Labour are pro-Brexit.
