Just catching up on #minibudget2022 ramifications: if businesses aren't "on their feet" #KwasiKwarteng might there be a correlation with a 10 year Tory rule? Or do you & @trussliz @BrineMP & @ReesMogg & all your colleagues abrogate your responsibilities? #GeneralElectionNow
#KwasiBudget trickle-down "advocates for a lower tax burden on the upper end of the economic spectrum". Economist John Kenneth Galbraith called it horse & sparrow: "If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows."

@KwasiKwarteng @trussliz @hmtreasury @BrineMP I accuse you of #malfeasance: intentional conduct that is wrongful or unlawful, especially by officials or public employees. You are gambling with the economy justifying it with a ideology that has been debunked #GeneralElectionNow

🇬🇧 CHI SARÁ L'EREDE DI BORIS JOHNSON?

1/n
Si conoscerà domani, all'ora di pranzo, il nome del successore di Boris #Johnson alla guida dei #Tories, e di conseguenza alla testa del governo del #RegnoUnito.

#ConservativeLeadershipContest
2/n
Il Guardian parla espressamente di maratona elettorale che "è sembrata durare cinque anni anziché cinque settimane".
Candidati Conservatori desiderosi di rilevare #BoJo al N° 10 di Downing Street? Otto.
O meglio, 8 quelli riusciti a guadagnare il supporto di 20 parlamentari
3/n
#Tories, come richiesto dal regolamento interno di queste particolari "primarie".
Al termine delle cinque votazioni che hanno impegnato i soli eletti, sono rimasti in piedi due candidati: Rishi #Sunak e Liz #Truss.

#BorisJohnson colpito e affondato da un'ondata di dimissioni?
O di "tradimenti", per dirla come il suo inner circle, sempre più stretto, per indicare gli oltre 50 esponenti #Tories che hanno lasciato il proprio posto nel governo e nel partito per spingerlo a lasciare il N°10. Image
#BoJo è letteralmente accerchiato. Sopravvissuto in maniera rocambolesca ad un voto di sfiducia del suo partito lo scorso mese, negli ultimi giorni è finito nuovamente nel mirino: colpa dello scandalo sessuale che ha riguardato il deputato conservatore Chris Pincher. Image
#BorisJohnson nominò Pincher vice whip del partito Conservatore alla Camera dei Comuni - un incarico che in italiano potremmo definire come vicecapogruppo - pur essendo informato del fatto che fosse stato accusato di molestie sessuali. Image

This will happen March 25 and is the official start-date of the #GreatReset that #JesuitJoe mentioned earlier this week.

The Jesuits are the "we" that "must lead it."

#ConsecrationofRussia #Fatima #Consecration
2/ Russia stock market reopening will coincide with Pope Francis #GreatReset #Fatima #Consecrstion mystic ritual on March 25. zerohedge.com/markets/russia…
3/ Think "Jesuit Order" and "New World Order"
Comments by #JesuitJoe to the MSM earlier this week confirm it. The #Jesuits are the "we" that must lead it. Messages hidden in plain sight: steganography. #GreatReset #Fatima #Consecration #Mar25

Singer Traci Braxton of 'Braxton Family Values' dies at 50 au.yahoo.com/news/singer-tr… <--- Pink lipstick. Srsly, how often do women wear that? Uses one eye symbolism. Mentions light, kids. Surprised "heartbreaking" not in it. S'pose they included enough to please the Big Guy.
Another story in which (transgender) sleb is shown wearing pinky-purple lipstick. That is so distinctive, innit? (Also, what do you use to *blow whistle*? Lips, right?) Kid mentioned as well. What are the odds? #symbolism #occultelite Image
At 55, Halle Berry Shows Off Super Toned Legs in Bikini While Skateboarding in New IG Post au.yahoo.com/lifestyle/55-h… <--- We can be thankful she's not 52. Risky age for famous, esp in Australia. In any case, there's heart again in form of Lolita glasses. They look pink too.

I felt terribly sick on Saturday. Sore throat, flu symptoms, heavy head. My rapid test is negative. All my friends have #COVID19. Literally everyone. 349 cases in my kids school last week.Overcrowded and zero #ventilation. Sick teachers & sick kids. @ScholaEuropaea @JHahnEU

On Sunday the Far right of 🇪🇺 comes to Brussels to create appalling chaos. The unspeakable violence...the politicians scape goating others... It's a lawless crowd & they don't hear our prayers. 2/
Belgian 🇧🇪Twitter Pandemic experts fight over CST: vaccine obligations. Yeah, in this first world, this is the drama. My right to not wear a face covering or take a vaccine. Not about the health consequences of the children & vulnerable. 😥 3/

In post I mentioned #Aerosmith's "Pink". Said it symbolized drug prized by elites. Here band member hints that it refers to something "all rock and roll is about". Lady parts comes to mind. Given rock's Satanic vibe same could be said of the drug tho.
Watermelon Sugar High by Harry Styles is another example. On one level it's obviously all about the ecstasy of mad shagging. But for "those in the know" the allusion is to this pink drug, I reckon. Harry even sings that "he can't do without" it.

Yesterday I didn’t want to know.I have a few more risk factors. Have an excellent medical team and am losing weight, Rx HTN, Type 2 DM,⬆️ Chol well treated. Ozempic helped me lose 40 pounds and A1C now Normal. Costs $2,000 a month. Medicare and retirement coinsurance covers most.
Part of me wants to tell proponents of #SinglePayer Health insurance in the USA 🇺🇸 difference between @NHSuk website and American Capitalism and Benefits of Employment(really a component of salary package). Part of me knows “they” will persist until they need $80,000 a year Meds.
Was searching to see if #BoJo has better healthcare cost coverage than 🇬🇧 citizens do. Here 🇺🇸 Lawmakers who want #MedicareForAll for us little people will still have Cadillac plan, for your country Rolls Royce? What I found was worse. theguardian.com/society/2020/j… @guardian get ready.

This shift to personal responsibility for #COVID is straight out of the (poor) epidemic response playbook. The exact same thing happened during Zika.

Government told people not to get infected thru insecticide/long sleeves, improve vector control and not to get pregnant. 1/
What then happened was that govs were then able to place responsibility onto individuals to avoid having children born with #CZS - The approach was "we've given you all the guidance, if you choose to get pregnant and not protect yourself from infection, that's your decision" 2/
The problem with this was the multiple structural barriers which prevented many people from following this guidance... affordability of insecticide, poor sanitation which meant mosquito proliferation, poor access to contraception 3/

#Macron n’a pas cru au vaccin. C’est une erreur grave qui va coûter la vie à des dizaines de milliers de Français. Cependant tout le monde peut faire des erreurs.
Mais là vraie erreur de Macron est de s’être entouré de « cons diplômés » qui n’ont eu aucune intuitions depuis le début de la crise de la #Covid19.

#Trump, #Bojo et #Netanyahu, les « populistes droitiers » ont été pour le coup bien plus pertinent.
La lenteur dans la vaccination est un vrai problème politique, économique et social.

La chance que #Macron a, est que pour l’instant, les Français ne semblent pas comprendre le problème et sont focalisés sur le #Confinement.

Pléthore de médecins sont des confineurs.

High St has been made a time-consuming ordeal of masked inconvenience so people order home deliveries. Ergo Wishy-Washy #RishSunak wants to tax online shopping - i.e., take money out of consumers’ pockets and lower returns to businesses, large & small, struggling to adapt...
Bunter #BoJo wants us on our #bikes to keep us less fat than he and to kick-off the #Green Leap Backward of #NetZero; talks of cutting urban pollution but also frets that no-one wants to leave home, so wiping out the value of near inconceivable amounts of invested capital...
Public transport, too, has become more maskedly unpleasant & is still subject to the fears (needlessly) aroused in the #commuting classes. Bike lanes are promised, furthering disruption & inconvenience. To complete this vicious circle of cross-purpose & agenda-politics idiocy...

The #GeorgeFloydMurder is the latest in a long history of #racist atrocities visited on Black people & minorities in the US & elsewhere.

If u are in some position of authority, power, privilege & have a public platform you need to speak up and be counted. A v personal #thread
I am brown of Indian origin, but when asked, I always say I don't really know what #racism looks like, I have almost never experienced it, and I am in a position of power and privilege so I don't think its appropriate for me to speak about it. But today, I write about it here ...
I grew up in India, when to the @LSEnews & took a investment banking job at #Lehman. When I flew back to #India, I went to the UK embassy in Delhi to get my work visa. That was my first #racist encounter. He barked at me, said he could turn me down coz "too many of us in the UK"

1. @itv's @Peston has been holding feet to flames about the UK's lack of #TestingForCovid19 and shares this per capita league table. UK comes last, amongst 20 countries. But he's getting flak themed: "what's the point in testing "mild" cases"?
2. Speaking as a doctor in the @NHS, and with public health training, I can't see any way to exit lockdown without a BIG increase in public health infrastructure. I think community testing is a key part of that. #TestTestTest
3. However, this seems to be a genuine question people are asking. Why #test? E.g. a few times when I've been driving to or from work @NHSGGC, @Nigel_Farage has been arguing he doesn't see the point. Many @LBC callers share his view; they can't see benefit in testing mild cases.

What to expect for Europe in 2020? As the EU enters a new policy cycle, here’s to a few predictions that I’ve shared with @euronews #THREAD 1/9
The new EU political leadership overpromised by generating outsized expectations that might reveal too difficult to manage:

1. Defend EU interests vs US & China 2. Take the lead on climate change 3. Tackle rebellious EU illiberal democracies 4. Tame big tech 5. Overcome Brexit
1. The #Suleimani assassination is already putting to test the self-proclaimed first EU ‘geopolitical’ Commission, which has lost in few hours the major EU foreign policy legacy of @JunckerEU @FedericaMog : the nuclear deal #JCPOA | the EU will be bystander of #iran situation

Lessons for India
From the UK's @UKSupremeCourt judgement today in the case of R v Prime Minister (On appeals from: [2019] EWHC 2381 (QB) and [2019] CSIH 49).
In a landmark Judgement today, 11 Justices ruled unanimously that Prime Minister @BorisJohnson had acted unlawfully..
when he advised the Queen to prorogue Parliament for a period of 6 weeks from a date betn 9-12 Sep to 14 Oct 2019.
This is a landmark judgement and the fact that it is unanimous lends further to its weight. It led immediately to calls to @BorisJohnson to 'consider his position'
That phrase is code for "Resign!". Most Constitutional experts agree that under its unwritten Constitution the British Prime Minister wields great power - far more than say the US President. But #BoJo has been stymied ever since he became PM.

What the hell is @jeremycorbyn doing?
Why is he enabling #Tory #Brexit?
Is this the final betrayal?
No, it isn't.
It's the predicted effect of decisions taken 2-3 years ago. All things considered, it's not as bad as it could have been (thanks to #StopBrexit crowd).

Thread.
1/n
To understand why, I need to outline 2 important mechanisms that most people, politicians and commentators seem to ignore, dismiss or simply don't get. They have different and somewhat opposite consequences, but are both decisive in the current & foreseeable predicaments.
2/n
1st and foremost: the biggest constraint that applies to political decision-making comes from the past decisions & policies.
It is a massive constraint.
Cameron COULD NOT convincingly campaign for #Remain, because his own policies CREATED the discontent channelled by #Leave.
