On 10th May at 1030 CET I am giving a lecture entitled “EU or Großdeutschland: the German influence in the European Union” at the Europe2Day Forum at the University of Trieste campus in Gorizia. This a bit different to my usual lectures about online communications in the European Union, but is a subject that fascinates me. The Powerpoint slides I will use to illustrate the lecture are here (7mb), I will tweet on the tag #E2Dforum, and the live stream of my speech will be here from 1030:

You mean “bitter, twisted people” taking full advantage of the UK’s self-imposed weakness to secure the best possible terms for their stakeholders. You poor wee snowflake. https://twitter.com/rupertlowe10/status/1219869312867078144
The Telegraph is reporting that the EU is planning to give the UK worse trade deal terms than Canada or Japan.
Bitter, twisted people intent on seeing Brexit Britain fail.
We've funded their waste and luxury for decades and this is their response.
A belated WTO exit awaits!
Someone like @robfordmancs or @ProfTimBale knows a hell of a lot more about this than you do, Alex.
And if academics contributed *more* to public discourse, that discourse might be better.
Or discourse could all be as crass as your tweet. Your call.
Love getting 500 word press releases from universities offering their no-mark professors up for comment on the Labour leadership contest. Maybe spend your time helping your students get some value for their degrees — literally no one else cares what you think
