There are many today with the wrong focus
-the #BackBoris #Boris screaming about a kangaroo Court
- Others shouting about Rayner and Starmer - get a grip that was investigated twice

#ToriesOut344 #SunakOut234 #GeneralElectionNow Image

- others about Jenkins and attending a party
- even more about Harriet Harman a non voting Chair on a Committee that made a unanimous decision.

Now that is out of the system focus on Sunak reality
- who is laughing at you
- who was fined for attending the same party
- who registered a campaigning website months before any move
- who was one of the first to move against Johnson
- who stated in Parliament that they attended no parties
- the report appendix highlights a no rules culture in Downing St - as evidenced below Image

We have cause to be grateful to #Sunak, yes grateful. For he has done what no one else, not #Boris' friends, allies or supporters, could.
He has finally woken the sleeping giant.

#Sunak has been a very silly boy. Even after everything #Sunak did to him, #Boris was content to sit quietly in the backbenches as a loyal #Conservative. But tonight, there was a turning point, the letter to the Privileges Committee. Finally #Boris had had enough.

The trigger was the Honours List, what #Boris might well have seen as closure: recognition of those who had been loyal to him and good servants to the nation. But all #Sunak could do was see #Boris in the light of his own behaviour and personality.

Why #Kwarteng should have sacked the #Governor of the Bank of England.

Kwasi #Kwarteng would not have realised, when he first announced his intention to be a tax-cutting, pro-growth, fiscally-responsible #Chancellor that he had immediately set in motion the daggers that would be thrust in his back 38 days later.
The Bank of England, guardian of the nation’s wealth and cornerstone of its economic management originally started life as a private company, funded by subscription under Royal Charter in 1694, as a means to finance the public purse, depleted by various wars.

@IanByrneMP Ian, When Boris Johnson announced this creep was returning to help the cause, Tory MPs cheered. While Crosby is allowed to practise his "dark arts" nothing will change. Expect hate to get ramped up pre GE.
Q - for Gove ? With his "secret clients" how can he be security vetted?
@IanByrneMP 2/ Crosby helped spawn #Brexit & #Boris He secretly advised Vote Leave's Elliott in 2011. He had/has a Svengali like hold over Boris who described him as "the soul of kindness & sweetness". With his unfettered access & client secrecy, surely he should be deemed a security risk?

This behaviour is the very essence of the #Boris persona. He gives himself #LookatMe points both at the half-cooked but expensive speech, & also at this media publicity. It’s a feeding ⭕️ with the audience getting what it wants. that he has nothing to lose.
Johnson’s reputation is so tarnished by his lying, that he loses nothing by continuing. Furthermore he embellishes his clown credentials. Best ignore the screaming toddler.

I predict ever more political chaos. It has become a Trump-alike entertainment show, with Boris as the star. Fortunately, the MPs vote is secret, but arm twisting is Tory stockintrade. It’s becoming more nasty, even for the nasty party.
The showman returns. From the astonishingly sudden rise, via the Boris bots & former kippers, there is a hidden populist plot to return him to the premiership. I smell Steve Bannon behind the plot & Putin behind him. MAGA comes to the UK.
Imagine that his clique can really create #Boris cult. MOBO: Make Our Britain Ours again. Like the Barmy Army of old, but harmful rather than harmless. MOBO populist mobs will spring up, apparently spontaneously, loudly supporting #Boris for PM. If successful, more chaos ensues.

@Battlefield @Lex_mate @oliverCAndersen @Alexformosoc @darkosupe @Flakfire @L0SSY

Following my new Boris concept to make him more fair and popular without angering people who dislike automatic systems like sentry gun.
Background: Boris sentry gun had several reviews as it dominated the battlefield especially while it was very hard to destroy and the automatic firing was tracking through walls and was powerful.

Nowadays the sentry gun makes Boris one of the weaker Specialists.
The reason why the community wanted him to be nerfed was mainly the tracking, but especially people disliked it as it requires no skill to kill other players.

However, currently the gun can be easily destroyed and does not help much to defend areas as intended.

Here we go again! The 1922 committee will stop at nothing to get their man Rishi as PM. What is playing out now is a conspiracy to bring down #Truss by MPs loyal to Rishi supported by the 1922 committee. They will stop at nothing until their man is the leader. 1/10
There is no way Rishi can become Prime Minister without the help and support of the 1922 committee, as they control the rules and the processes to elect a new leader. 2/10
The big problem is that Rishi is not popular with the members who have already rejected him as their leader. So 1922 will have to elect Rishi by blocking member's votes and eliminating them from the leadership campaign. 3/10

Boris Johnson has been Prime Minister for 3 years, but will be out on his ear in weeks.

Let's look back at his first speech from the lectern of never-ending-impending-doom in Downing Street.

#UKpolitics #Boris
It's important to hold political leaders to account by reviewing their promises later.
And it will be illuminating to see what he and his ministers (including the next Prime Minister) have chosen to actually do beyond the rhetoric.

Let's go...
Blah, blah, blah.

Last Thurs night my brother, a farmer in Wales, had a phone call from a neighbour saying there were suspicious lights in one of his fields. He went to look and found 8 Indian men catching his sheep ready to kill in the field (Halal). He challenged them but they had knives 1/2
and told him they would use them if he didn’t back off, which he did. He rang the Police with the Reg no. They stopped them in Shrewsbury. They were from London. If his neighbour hadn’t rang him he would have found just sheep fleeces in his fields 2/3
On Friday morning and copious amounts of blood. We are 3rd generation farmers, this would have been unheard of in my Father’s Day. What on Earth have we done to our once wonderful Country 😡#immigration #BanHalal #PritiPatel #Boris #SadiqKhan #NeverLabour

🇺🇦 is ready for a tough battle with 🇷🇺 forces amassing in #Ukraine's east, President #Zelensky said Saturday.

This came a day after a #missile attack officials said killed more than 50 civilians trying to evacuate at #Kramatorsk rail station in the east.

@NRushworth reports⤵️
@NRushworth #Mariupol 🇺🇦 is a strategic port city that would let #Russia 🇷🇺 access the sea of Azov.

As Russian forces target the city, shelling has collapsed several humanitarian corridors, with residents living under constant siege.

Thoughts on how we got here in #Ukraine, what is happening, & what we in the #EU & #NATO need 2 do now

#thread 🧵1/n

Bon courage 2 all #Ukrainian friends & citizens

Admiration 4 journalists on the ground - stay safe

Understanding for #Russian citizens who did not want war
First we need to hang our head in shame. The US was explicit in intelligence readouts saying what has happened would happen. So it's not like we were not warned.

From early December onwards the playbook #Russia has followed was clearly laid out and this was brushed off lightly!
The unified stance of #EU member states, #NATO and the #US looked good, but only because we had been pathetic.

#Russia has been very successful in infiltrating western democracies.

Russian footprints all over, especially on the far right, right, and the @GOP especially #Trump

1. "Against the backdrop of the pandemic, when the Government was asking citizens to accept far-reaching restrictions on their lives, some of the behaviour surrounding these gatherings is DIFFICULT TO JUSTIFY"
#SueGrayDay #SueGrayReport #PartyGate #BorisJohnson
2. "At least some of the gatherings in question represent a *serious failure* to observe not just the high standards expected of those working at the heart of Government but also of the standards expected of the entire British population at the time."

As headlines swirl, let's take a step back:
1) Evidence of #DowningStreetParties has been sitting on many people's desks & consciences since early 2020 and only became known due to infighting in Tory Party. Nothing to do with the country, shame or awareness of the hypocrisy.
2) Evidence is being gathered by #SueGray a civil servant who'll report to #Boris - he'll then be judge & jury on what happens next including deciding if her recommendations are published.
A report with no legal standing.
A further pointless waste of taxpayers' money.
3) #metpolice hide behind the 4 Es they say they operate under during #COVID19 - engage, explain, encourage observation of the law, before enforcement. I'd add a 5th EVADING!
No investigating of historic rule-breaking but they must've witnessed/seen the parties on CCTV etc

The #NuVariant FACTS:

🟢South Africa health chiefs say it is causing “mild illness”.
🔴UK health chiefs say they don’t know how dangerous it is
🟢South African health chiefs are relaxed about vaccine escape
🔴UK health chiefs say we don’t know if it gets around vaccine

🟢South Africa health chiefs say shutting borders is pointless
🔴UK health chiefs shut borders
🟢South Africa health chiefs say world reaction is “over the top”
🔴UK health chiefs say it’s a precaution

Is everyone seeing what is happening here? UK is not following science.
The vaccinated are already getting #COVID19 - so the #covidvariant isn’t any different in that scenario. And #PCR tests will increase cost of family foreign trips by hundreds of pounds. #Boris must reverse this travel nonsense now…

Terrifying thread, thank you @tweetsbyames for all the gory details, do read them all👇🏼.
The #PrimeMinister is a brutal & narcissistic egomaniac who shouldn’t be allowed to plan a children’s tea party, let alone be in charge during a pandemic!

#COVID19UK #SchoolsScandal
THOUSANDS of ppl have lost their lives or been left with long term debilitating symptoms AS A RESULT OF HIS CALLOUS INDIFFERENCE to others & his SERIAL INCOMPETENCE!

Gurkhas and the British

Men from the hillsides of Nepal began joining the British Army in 1815,right after the end of the 1st phase of the Anglo-Gurkha War of 1814-16.They have been serving the British Crown ever since.#Gurkha #Gurkhas #Nepal #ENGITA #Eng…
The Gurkhas played an essential role in establishing the British Raj in India and fought for the British in Afghanistan, what was then Burma, Tibet and in countless other conflicts.

#England #Britain #British #Army #BritishArmy #Eng #ENGITA #Euro2020Final #EuroFinal #EURO2020
In the first world war alone, tiny Nepal,with a population of around 5 million, sent over 200,000 Gurkhas to fight for the British. 1 in 10 never returned. In the second world war over 250,000 Gurkhas fought alongside the British and more than 33,000 never returned.

It's a while since I've done one of these threads, so bear with me.
In advance of tomorrow's #DominicCummings extravaganza, I offer you this...

#Cummings #Boris #HerdImmunity
Alas, poor Boris! I knew him Goveio: a fellow of unfunny jest, of most racist fancys: he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rims at it.
Here hung those wibbly lips that I have kissed I know not how oft.
Where be your bigoted gibes now? Your many mistresses? Your gaffes? Your flashes of homophobia, that were wont to set the Tories on a roar?
Not on now, to mock your own downfall? Quite chap-fallen.

Interesting week for the art of political distraction.
#europesuperleague either fan-power or competition law would've halted the plan, but political speed to bank political capital was unprecedented. Compare with days it took for PM to react to violence in Northern Ireland
#Boris & his Govt's slow reaction to #COVIDSecondWaveInIndia #GreensillScandal why Defence Minister Johnny Mercer is being dismissed, @GoodLawProject discovery yesterday about #Torysleaze donor awarded a £100m #PPE contract & why his name why redacted…
#Boris needs to answer why Cruddas got a peerage despite cash-for-access scandal. Why he overrode his ethics adviser on @pritipatel bullying/breaking Ministerial Code. ?s on #ArcuriAffair & her business receiving public money. Why he missed the 1st 5 emergency #covid meetings
