We can't feed children,
We can buy @BorisJohnson a plane

We can't give NHS heroes a pay rise
We can give Serco&co billions to fail

We can't take refugees
We can sell the bombs that creates them

We can't break rules @Conservatives can

Why are we accepting this?

Here's the @BBCBreaking with the truth about austerity.

For the only time after a decade of lying for @Conservatives

We are a monetarily sovereign nation.

We cannot go bankrupt.

We do not
"borrow money".

We do not need to "balance the books".

Blair lied to get us into the illegal Iraq war

At least 1 million souls perished

ISIS grew out of the ruins

Babies are born til this day with defects caused by our dirty bombs

He's rewarded & knighted for his war crimes

As Assange is murdered for exposing them

#Blair #Iraq
The document was seen as clear evidence that the decision to go to war had been made fully eight months before the invasion, and that making the case for war came later, as the “facts were being fixed.”

"The invasion of Iraq was a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law…

We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder,.."

1989. cade il #murodiberlino, e di lì a poco, come dice la treccani “tutte le dittature sotto le quali erano vissuti, come prigionieri, i popoli dell’Europa orientale”
Prigionieri, dice proprio così 1/11
Rimane da capire perchè oltre il 50% degli ex cittadini della #DDR ancora oggi dichiari che il #socialismo aveva più aspetti positivi che negativi 2/11
E com'è che il 75% dei Russi continui a sostenere che si vivesse meglio durante l'epoca sovietica 3/11

Die Daten der #PandoraPapers zeigen, wie Politiker und Superreiche Offshore-Strukturen nutzen, wohl auch um ihren Besitz vor der Öffentlichkeit zu verstecken. Wessen Geschäfte tauchen in den #PandoraPapers auf? Ein Thread.
Im Datensatz der #PandoraPapers lassen sich die Spuren zu den amtierenden Präsidenten der Ukraine, von Gabun und Ecuador verfolgen. Auch die ehemaligen Präsidenten von El Salvador, Panama, Paraguay und Honduras sind in den Daten zu finden.
Auch der ehemalige britische Premierminister Tony Blair und seine Frau sind in den #PandoraPapers zu finden. Demnach erwarben die Blairs im Jahr 2017 über den Kauf einer Briefkastenfirma eine Immobilie in London im Wert von 7,5 Millionen Euro. #Blair

@thezambologist It's #climateChange, not global warming (see floods & extreme temperatures both summer & winter with dumps of thousands tons/day #CO2 and other toxins by #UK .gov & #NATO over #Britain and #Europe)

#COP26 is a con trick @beisgovuk

@LanceForman random ➡️twitter.com/search?q=%40de…
@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman I've literally watched it happening

I'm a plane spotter, not a climate change activist

But this year of literally solid #CO2 dumping coming from .gov and #NATO has to be the biggest con-trick ever played on the public

@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman @LanceForman - these planes cost hundreds of millions of £ / € a day to run) typically go nowhere. They're in the air from the early hours until well after dark

Those planes could have helped to get the "assets" out of #Afghanistan in a timely manner (3 months into 3 weeks)

“What really alarms me about the 'War on Terrorism' is the grammar. How do you wage war on an abstract noun? How is 'Terrorism' going to surrender? It's well known, in philological circles, that it's very hard for abstract nouns to surrender”#TerryJones
#911Anniversary #911attack
“What is meant by: ‘We mustn't give in to the terrorists’? We gave in to them the moment the first bombs fell on #Afghanistan

After the #911attack Terry Jones spoke out against the ‘War on Terror’

In the 2005 elections, he nearly ran against Tony #Blair thefreelibrary.com/The+man+who+ch…
I believe Terry could’ve won

The strategy was to run on a single issue &, if victorious, stand down & call an immediate by-election making the vote a referendum on Blair’s war

Tories & LibDems would likely have stood down

Sadly our candidate, Reg Keys, reneged on this strategy

Magdi (non ancora) Cristiano Allam è stato per anni "vicedirettore" al Corriere e per anni ci ha riempito di panzane volte a giustificare l'invasione di #Iraq, #Afghanistan e qualunque altra azione militare contro i paesi sgraditi ai neocon americani.
Negli stessi anni era vicedirettore del #Corriere Gianni #Riotta.
Questo #Riotta, che a differenza di Allam non tace e non parla d'altro.
Al #Corriere c'era anche #Panebianco, un altro bombardiere, che ci voleva far invadere pure la #Libia, da soli contro tutti
E che ancora oggi spara baggianate simili dalle stesse pagine

Warum in #Deutschland ein überfordert und fehlinformiert wirkender Armin #Laschet - dem zudem immer wieder seine #Lügen aufgezeigt werden - zum #Bundeskanzler werden kann?
Mit nur noch 17% Zutrauen durch die Wahlberechtigten?
Ein Thread (mit Hilfe von @GeorgeMonbiot) Image
Kurz nach der Wahl in #Grossbritannien 2020, die Labour verloren hat und die den "Politclown" Boris #Johnson an die Macht spülte, analysierte der Journalist @GeorgeMonbiot in knappen 10min. Video die Gründe. Brilliant und wichtig, vor allem für die #Btw21
Weil er schmerzhaft die Ursachen auf den #Punkt bringt, versuche ich im #Thread, seine Aussagen über Grossbritannien sinngemäss für #Deutschland zu übersetzen und die Beispiele zu adaptieren. Hat mich erstaunt, wie einfach das oft ist.

Here's a fun #NINO - the UK's National Insurance Number - [Thread] to start the weekend 👇

Maybe I should do an #NHSnumber one sometime? It's a fascinating story, which (ironically) starts with these...
[With thanks to @guy_herbert, @TomSamaki, @PrivacyMatters & others for encouragement!]

Before I start a geeky 'deep dive' on the #NHSnumber, to provide some (personal/professional) context that will hopefully become apparent, I'll just drop these two images here:
So, to begin.

After the Second World War, in a time when we started to think (again) what a #civilised society would be, and when our leaders tried to agree #principles like #UDHR that might prevent the recurrence of genocide, and support #dignity and #HumanRights for all...

The Aristocracy - Survival of the Fittest via @YouTube
Actually, this documentary has set my mind into commotion and took me back into those years when the New #Labour and #Blair came into power in the late 1990s in the #UK.
We eagerly watched what reforms under the #collectivists would imply, as the UK had a manifest #class system.
The worse thing which #Blair could do, at that time, was to remove the #hereditary #peers from the House of #Lords.
This particular political decision had far-reaching consequences for the #British Society,as a vernacular mindset that rejected #evolution & tradition jointly arose

[Thread] I’ve done a quick bit of research on #Starmer’s funders using the .@SocialistVoice link to the Parliamentary Register of Members’ Interests. The total amount donated was £470,900. The largest donors were: Waheed Alli (Baron Alli of Norbury) £100,000; Martin Taylor (Hedge
Fund Manager) £95,000; Trevor Chinn (Businessman, Philanthropist, political activist) £50,000; Clive Hollick (Baron Hollick of Notting Hill) £25,000; Peter Coates (Fmr Chair of Stoke City FC & Director of Bet 365) £25,000. I’ve dug out some info on each of the above as follows:
Trevor Chinn sits on the on Executive Committee of British Israel Communications & Research Centre (#BICOM). Chinn has donated to the office or campaigns of a number of #Labour Party politicians, including MPs Tony #Blair, Ruth #Smeeth, Liz #Kendall, Tom #Watson and Dan #Jarvis

#labour I'm worried
I need you to find your way to electability.
That doesn't start with reality denial.

1. Total seats lost due to LD/SNP competition - 60
Biggest issue, not even discussed.
2. Socialism/corbynism marketing problem bigger than #Brexit⏬ ignored.
2/5 #FakeViews

3. Our policies wern't good. An incoherent mess that none of us understood or could communicate

4. Everything #Blair did was wrong. So we actively refuse to do stuff that's right, just because he did it

5. We have no strategy or forward dream. FTMNTF is vacuous.
3/5 #FakeViews
#Brexit was a disaster. But not at #GE19, because we didn't build a position on #brexit for three years. #labour creates strategy.
It can't dodge it.

7. We have a core hydra of people centrally who are staying the same...major problem.

How Britain changed inexorably for the worse under the Premiership of the Marxist open borders #Blair - the worst PM of mine & many a lifetime & how his spin doctors spun & continue to spin their webs of deceit. Thread 1/12
When #Blair was elected PM - it was under the auspices of wanting to be rub the Right's noses in 'diversity' the new synonym for everything subsequently wrong with British society because he has always hated the UK and all it stands for. 2/12
It was no surprise to me the problems with mass uncontrolled immigration would cause - a complete lack of social & cultural cohesion but still Blair continued to destroy the UK. Endless cover-ups of industrial scale grooming gangs followed. 3/12

Sorry @jessphillips you are wrong - come meet the public sector workers, retired policemen, business men + women, farmers, teachers, mums, students + so many more who we have in #Northumberland @Conservatives
I will take them over #Momentum 2015 +
#GordonBrown ➡️#PM in 2007?
Did #Labour members get a vote in 2007 when #GordonBrown deposed #Blair and was made #PM? No!
Hilariously #Labour in 2007 didn’t even give Labour MPs a vote?
Hmmmmmhhhh
#Peopleinglasshouses ....
And remind me of yr views of #Corbyn + the #Momentum wing of #Labour party - which have now taken over + attack you as much as me? We both know they are both anti #NATO, our allies + #business but are #Marxist, #antiSemitic + a genuine threat to the future of this great country

Have you heard of #Hotelling’s Law? In a two party system, it says that you get most votes by minimising the political distance between the parties. It’s worked well in the past, but it’s about to bring an end to both #Labour and the #Tory party. 1/n
uk.mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/id…
Hotelling’s law worked really well for Tony #Blair. #Thatcher had moved the Tory party to the right, so #NewLabour had an opportunity to increase its vote share by also moving rightwards. 2/n
Politics had shifted. Both parties held broadly similar policies. Blair’s political stance, although to the left of Thatcher’s, was much further right than any Labour leader previously (or since). Labour was able to capture ground that the Tories had left unguarded. 3/n

Please to hear the indefatigable late Robin Cook's resignation speech was chosen to start speech week on @BBCPM today.
Well worth listening to if you missed it.
#bbcpm #iraq #robincook #blair #UKlabour #UKpolitics
The speech is still remarkably prescient on so many levels:
Of the need for unilateralism and how Britain can't go it alone.
Of how this wasn't an objection to any and all military intervention.
Of how the problems although bit fully crystallised could be foreseen in advance.
Of how those who disagreed should not be seen as traitors.
Of the need to listen to the reports from experts.
The idea that an enemy can simultaneously be seen as well and on the verge of collapse, but still seem as a clear and present danger.
The list goes on.
