SO BORIS WANTS TO SAVE LIVES DOES HE ?

I BEG TO DISAGREE - SEE THIS HIS 2007 OCTOBER BLOG 💀😈😷✡️🐑

"Published 25th October 2007
by #BorisJohnson

*Global over-population is the real issue*
It is a tragic measure of how far the world has changed – and the infinite capacity of modern man for taking offence – that there are no two subjects that can get you more swiftly into political trouble than motherhood and apple pie.
The last time I tentatively suggested that there was something to be said in favour of apple pie, I caused a frenzy of hatred in the healthy-eating lobby. It reached such a pitch that journalists were actually pelting me with pies, and demanding a retraction, and an apology,

The Prime Minister is living up to the name #BritainTrump with the power to clear himself

Boris Johnson went full #ToryDictatorship as he launched an angry tirade in Parliament🤦‍♂️

Let's look at the similarities of #MajorSleaze & Donald Trump

First, Steve Bannon got both elected Boris Johnson
1. #SteveBannon Got Both #BorisJohnson & Donald Trump Elected

Bannon was VP of Cambridge Analytica, working on the Leave Campaign and won it for #MajorSleaze (who was elected to #GetBrexitDone on the back of it) 🇬🇧

The #FarRight white supremacist was CEO of Trump's campaign 🇺🇲 Steve Bannon Far Right
2. Both Act Nice But Get Really Angry

In public, #MajorSleaze is usually laughing & joking but yesterday we got a glimpse behind the mask

Like Donald Trump, Johnson is arrogant, vindictive and aggressive. He helped plan to beat up a journalist

Both can be very nasty & selfish Boris Johnson Gets Really AngryDonald Trump Gets Really Angry

Almost £1 Billion of YOUR MONEY was given to #ToryDonors by #BorisJohnson & No 10 Downing Street

£944M in 57 #Covid contracts to companies connected to people donating £12M to @Conservatives Party 🤦‍♂️

Stop #ToryCorruption on 6th May. You know what to do.
bylinetimes.com/2021/03/29/map…
The PM oversaw the biggest #ToryCorruption year in history. The lowest of the low, exploiting the deaths of 127,000 British citizens to make money.

Every £1 of profit they made came away from the lives we could have saved

Then he refused to meet families
We have Prime Minister's Questions for #BorisJohnson

1. Why didn't you #lockdown earlier?
2. Why did you open up early?
3. Why did you waste £Billions?
4. Why didn't you use Ventilator manufacturers?
5. Why didn't you meet families?
6. Why say #letthebodiespilehigh?
&. Why PM?👈

In Hyde Park on Saturday, Police officers were punched and kicked by right wing #antilockdown protestors

#BorisJohnson said he'd see #BodiesPiledHigh before we #lockdown again

#VoteLeave riled them up for #Brexit

It won't be the Left that storm No 10 😓
2 arrests were made. Police officers were unprepared, ill-equipped with no back-up

When the #FarRight protests #BorisJohnson and #PritiPatel send in officers in shirtsleeves. When some "woke left vegetarians protest", it's riot gear🤔

#ToryBrexitDisaster
bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
8 Police Officers were injured. With only 2 arrests made, neither were in Hyde Park.

That means the people you see punching and kicking Police Officers were allowed to walk away freely.

Couldn't we even arrest the people who injured the Police Officers?

These are #BorisJohnson supporters. The @Conservatives. Attacking the Police. #ToryCriminals

#GetBrexitDone turned out to be #GetPoliceDoneIn by #BrexitSupporters

Well done @BorisJohnson and @PritiPatel

You banned protests calling for equality against **statues**

& let violent racists attack police officers

You divided the UK

Shame, shame on you😡😡

#GTTO #Brexit Racism in the UK
You created a world where the welfare of statues comes before the welfare of women.

Where the needs of the rich come before the needs of the poor.

Where the Elite tred on anyone below.

You made this #BorisJohnson.. it's coming back to bite you

Boris: "Let the Bodies Pile High In Their Thousands"

We need to remove The PM @BorisJohnson AND @Conservatives from No 10 Downing Street with immediate effect.

The tide has turned, now is the time to keep up the pressure!

Do not let Gove in, they hacked a referendum

#NoTories Let the bodies pile high in their thousands
You must remember this is the Daily Mail. They are the same people. They are the #Conservatives 🏧

Just when they are changing foot, we need to knock them off balance. They are trying to whitewash #ToryCorruption, Steve Bannon, Trump connection, Arcuri 👇

THREAD:

There are multiple problems with #BorisJohnson's claim that he paid 58k for Downing Street apartment refurbishment "himself".

It is well known, from public reports, that the Prime Minister is in fact skint & struggling.

/1
He had to get the taxpayer to pay for a bed. Because he has no money and because his ex-wife had kept his stuff.

/2


metro.co.uk/2019/07/21/bor…
He reportedly slept on the sofa at Carrie Symonds' flat because he was so skint - divorce, plus costs of children.

There were reports at the time of the flaming Johnson-Symonds row where the police were called to her flat.

(Anyone who can find a link - please comment)

Dominic Cummings is testifying against Boris Johnson to pre-empt a criminal investigation

He used Steve Bannon's AIQ to hack the 2016 #EUReferendum

#MoneyLaunderers want to break EU/US financial oversight

They know they will be convicted on a lesser charge like a flat or wall Dominic Cummings and Boris ...
"This strategy involved identifying all the voters... who would be easiest to persuade... Then bombarding them with blogs, websites, articles, videos, ads.. until they saw the World the way we wanted them to."

They were warned he was an imbecile, liar and cheat.

They ignored the warnings.

They put their fingers in their ears.

They elected him anyway, expecting something different.

They are now amazed to discover the warnings were correct.

"He is bereft of judgment, loyalty and discretion. Only in the star-crazed, frivolous Britain of the 21st century could such a man have risen so high, and he is utterly unfit to go higher still."

"Values, decency and honesty play a diminished part in modern politics — but the British people may be grateful that it is still a sufficient one to have halted the march on Downing Street of this dangerous charlatan."

Occasionally we glimpse the foul cesspit of Johnson's mind.
How he must scorn climate activists if ‘bunnyhuggers’ is how he sees them....
How he must scorn gays if "tank topped bum boys" is his description of choice....

1/3 Image
How he must scorn Africans if he can write of picaninnies with water melon smiles…
How he must scorn the British public if he feels able to so easily lie…
How he must scorn women if he thinks only “feeble” men can’t “take control of their women”….

How he must scorn nurses if he’ll applaud them then cut their pay….
How he must scorn school children if he’ll send them home hungry….
How he must scorn anyone other than himself – a man whom he holds in the highest regard!

🔴 LES LOYALISTES N'ONT RIEN À PERDRE QUE LEURS CHAÎNES

Depuis plus d’une semaine nous pouvons voir dans différents médias des images de nuits d’émeutes dans les six comtés de l’Irlande occupée. Voici un thread analysant la situation actuelle ⤵️ (1/18)
Que ce soit à #Belfast ou à #Derry des jeunes attaquent les forces de l’ordre, incendient des véhicules, expriment leur rage et leur impuissance. Si ces images sont relativement courantes au nord, deux détails rendent cet événement assez unique. (2/18)
L’étendue de la contestation tout d’abord mais surtout les protagonistes. Cette fois, ce sont des #loyalistes qui attaquent les forces de l’ordre. Pour comprendre pourquoi les « fidèles à la couronne » attaquent ses représentants et ses « protecteurs » (3/18)

Blistering introductory monologue by @maitlis on standards in public life covering the #AcuriAffair #BorisJohnson #DavidCameron & #PritiPatel

The last time #Newsnight did such a
powerful opening was in May in the midst of the Barnard Castle scandal
“A great journalist puts into words the things people feel. They seek truth & speak truth & are never seduced by the gilded strumpet of power”
(E. Warner)

Following her monologue on Cummings, the govt complained to the BBC

Instead of backing @maitlis, the BBC issued an apology!
“What is spectacularly gutless is that these ministers have avoided @GMB , @Channel4News, @BBCNewsnight & anywhere they might get rough ride. That’s a dereliction of their duty as govt ministers. It’s completely shameful.” @piersmorgan

It’s a national scandal & nothing is done!

Thanks for reading.

If you're interested in the wider context, and what Boris Johnson's *real* purpose is, you might like this THREAD on what forty years of deregulated free market capitalism has done for Britain (already read by 150,000 people):

And if you *still* need convincing that bigoted liar Boris Johnson might not actually be the Churchillian figure we've been told he is by sycophantic pundits, journalists, MPs and utterly delusional morons, here's what is quite possibly his finest hour:

1/. On 5 March 2020, the PM was asked why Britain hadn't locked down

He replied saying "one the theories is that we could #TakeItOnTheChin"

A year ago today - briefed by No.10 - @Peston revealed the govt strategy was to “allow the virus to pass through the entire population”. ImageImage
2/. It was clear that @Peston & his “senior No.10 source” had not understood #HerdImmunity which - as every virologist will tell you - is an OUTCOME never a STRATEGY

Allowing #COVID19 to spread
without a vaccine would be madness & result in mass deaths.
3/. Rather than correct @Peston & his “senior No.10 source” @uksciencechief came out publicly to defend “the strategy”

#HerdImmunity without a vaccine is, by definition, not a preventative measure

What was going on?!!

The was no lockdown & the #CheltenhamFestival was starting! Image

The world pop'n is 7,850,000,000,000

UK pop'n is 68,000,000

#HS2 will cost £170,000,000,000 at least,
likely several times that

That works out at £22 for each human being on Earth
. . . or £2,500 for every person living in the UK

Has anyone else noticed this weird rhetorical trick that seem to have afflicted every single official spokesperson on #coronavirus efforts...

...and this is the insertion of "sadly!
To begin with I noticed #BorisJohnson doing it. He would never say "the number who have died today is x"

Nah.

It was always "sadly died".

Or "there has been a rise in the number of cases and, sadly, deaths".

Occasionally he varied it. So we got "tragically".
Then I noticed other ministers doing it, as were the medical members present at daily press conferences.

Today a professor from SAGE i believe was doing it on @Channel4News

If we were living 400 years ago, in the year 1621, it would be obvious to virtually all of us that the world was stationary at the centre of the universe, & that those who argued for the Copernican, heliocentric, world view were nutters.
Not just because religious/academic authority supported this view but because of common sense: you only had to observe the heavens for confirmation. If the Earth moved, we would surely notice it. And to suggest it was a wandering star, like Venus or Mars, was blatantly absurd.
Now, 400 years later, with academic & even religious authority teaching us that the heliocentric view was correct after all, we all believe it, despite continuing to contradict common sense.

Brilliant freelance📷documentary photographer @andyaitchison has for years shone a light on prisons and immigration detention centres.

Yesterday police arrested Andy, held him for 5 hrs, seized his mobile phone & camera's memory card.

Crime? Doing his job. 1/
Andy's arrest comes the day after authoritarian minister for Equalities (yes, Equalities) @KemiBadenoch smeared brilliant journo Nadine White @Nadine_Writes , exposing White to predictable trolling and abuse. 2/

Liz Truss @trussliz played the same dirty trick on @Halima_Begum CEO @RunnymedeTrust, using inflammatory language *in Parliament* that she must have known would expose Begum to trolling, abuse & threats of harm. 3/
