May’s speech was probably better than I’d expected, there’s at least some acknowledgement that there’s more to this than just demanding absolute perfection and crying foul when we don’t get it.

@JanAlbrecht: Of course the UK will need an adequacy decision by the COM to not mess up data transfers with EU. But it will be almost impossible to grant. https://twitter.com/faisalislam/stat...50525025333249

Could it be a reasonably (at first) low profile subject which is the final straw?

@Tupp_Ed: @buchtan @podehaye Ah, from a Barnier speech yesterday.
I’d say this is what’s referred to.

I'll tell you what, I might have been cynical before but this week has really assuaged my fears about our increased reliance on US trade deals post-brexit.

I love how on my tax overview letter where it gives the breakdown of your contributions "UK contribution to the EU budget" is below such expenses as "Overseas Aid" and "Street lights"

But if you're from Bolton, then you're not bothered about the big line items at the top of the list. You're absolutely bothered about the couple of quid going to the EU though.

Do forgive me, it’s hard to tell with all the sweeping generalisations you make without any real facts to back things up.

And regardless of where you are from, if you are getting a tax summary like that then you are paying tax and so are probably more bothered about government waste, high welfare costs and the NHS than a few quid going to the EU, unless you're a racist xenophobic Daily Mail reader. Actually racist and xenophobic were superfluous, just Daily Mail reader will do.

Its almost like the remain campaign team didn't think that highlighting EU spending is trivial versus the amount spunked away on welfare and the nhs was a winning strategy

Making his position clear that rich immigrants are and have been always welcome. Just not the poor ones fleeing the bombs (that there's a good chance we sold).
