I’ve attended re:publica in Berlin for the last two years, presenting Atheist Buses there in 2009 and talking on a panel about the EU Citizens’ Initiative in 2010, and I’ll be there again in 2011. It’s a fantastic, creative, fun event, it’s in spring time in Berlin, it operates in German and in English, and you learn all kinds of interesting things by attending. So get hold of your tickets – the early bird tickets for bloggers have already gone, but some regular early bird tickets are still available at the time of writing.

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
