I regard him as a progenitor of the Big Bang, one of the most devious and scheming of Mrs Thatcher’s ministers, who brought the country to its knees with the monetarist experiment in 1979-82, & who deserves to be denounced as a supporter of those who deny climate change.
Lawson chaired the notorious and toxic Global Warming Foundation. He was a terrible Chancellor, using the Office to pursue extremely damaging ideological policies based on the writings of Hayek. He and Thatcher were well matched in ideological purity, along with the dictator of……
Lawson was responsible as Chancellor for the Lawson boom, a second major policy error, in 1988, which was partly the reason why Thatcher herself was defenestrated weeping from No. 10. This was an earlier example of Tory mismanagement of the UK economy.

Too true. The #SiliconValleyBank collapse is another confirmation & deepening of the #SecondGFC. Another straw in the global financial hurricane. We are seeing an acceleration of major bankruptcies in #Crypto, now #Tech. The danger is #Contagion. Do the banks have it covered? No
How can the banks, the Central Banks, the retail banks, Barclays Execution, manage a global crisis, without having sovereign power? They could not. They need to take over governments via threat & bullying, as they did in the #GFC financial crisis in the USA and the UK in 2008.
Bankers saved banks & the bankers in trouble, because they captured the USA Govt under Bush. It was shocking and unprecedented, but they justified themselves via PR and tame, greedy, or cowardly journalists, as “too big to fail”. The rest of us can fail & suffer, but not them.

Just sick at how British politics doesn't recognise the enormous sacrifice that Europe has made for Northern Ireland.

The whining has to stop.

They complain about 🇪🇺 law. Yet, NI is being given privileged access to the SM for goods. This splits the four freedoms in a way that it would never ordinarily allow.

Only possible with 🇪🇺 law.

As for democratic deficit, NI refuses to contribute to the European budget for the well-being of others, unlike CH, Norway, etc.

Here's why Mogg has championed India as a saviour of UK's deregulated post #Brexit trade over the entire EU.
The WTO is undemocratic, it puts the rights of corporations over human rights, child labour is fine, trading with despotic regimes is encouraged.…
WTO is seeking to privatize essential public services such as education, health care, energy and water. The WTO’s General Agreement on Trade in Services, or GATS has a list of +160 threatened services. Ring any bells people? Isn't Brexit wonderful?
Here's a sample of what WTO rules are threatening, elderly and child care, sewage, garbage, park maintenance, telecommunications, construction, banking, insurance, transportation, shipping, postal services, tourism.

Since #food prices are in the news again, here are three charts comparing the UK and the rest of Europe.

(Spoiler alert: it's no consolation, but food price inflation is even higher in the EU than in #BrexitBritain)

1. What's happened to food prices (in levels) since 2016...
2. Cumulative #food price #inflation since December 2019...
3. The latest annual food price #inflation rates (for November)...

Update on "our Ken" - the ex Met Police officer who sent a threatening letter, placed rubbish in the garden, then escalated to spray painting the property and wielding a knife. His complaint? Having anti Brexit stickers on my dustbing
To avoid going to court (His son works for Kent #Police and Ken is a football coach for young people), Ken finally paid £3000 for the restoration of the property (some 75% of the sum requested). It becomes clear that #Brexit doesn't pay.
Ken's main complaint (apart from the fact that I don't accept his form of democracy and that "I lost") was his claim that my anti-Brexit stickers were lowering property values in the area. I have not been able to verify the matter, nonetheless ...

This shows why traitors like Matthew and Sarah Elliott vested interests in changing UK politics to far right libertarianism takes years of serious planning Read/RT #ToryScum
Brexit-Loving Koch Acolytes Are Getting Rich Off Climate Change Denial in the UK…
Elliotts took funding from Koch and Mercer to pave the way towards smaller Govt and climate denial/deregulation, remember how #COP26 went tits up? The Tories have opened the floodgates to intense fossil fuel mining in the north sea, paid by corporate free market libertarians.
Sheer number of right wing think tanks supposedly non profit are keen to hide who their funders are, it is a scandal of the highest degree that corporate money dictates Govt policy, Brexit would not have happened if legislation was in place to stop disaster capitalist wreak havoc

Good evening #PrimeMinister,

How’s that number crunching going?

Have you seen the up to date figures on #NHS staff sickness in London?

What are yours thoughts on the sustainability of healthcare in the capital over the next few weeks?

@BorisJohnson @sajidjavid
What about cases Mr Johnson..Are you pleased w/ how case numbers are rising?

119,789 is without doubt a WORLD BEATING NUMBER so I guess you must be proud?

In fact the number of ppl who’ll be forced to isolate this #Christmas is truly SPECTACULAR 👏!

#Covid19UK @DHSCgovuk
And hospitalisations?

1,004 today alone.
6,299 in the last 7 days….!

That’s going to hit hospitals very hard especially as more #NHS staff go off sick w/ or due to #COVID.

Would you want to spend #Christmas in hospital, ill & afraid with no visitors?

Lots of people who don’t remotely mind terrified, freezing refugees drowning in the Channel will shortly appear here, incandescent with rage that they may be required to wear a piece of fabric over their nose & mouth for 15 mins when they’re in a shop.

Merkel says farewell to France.

This is what grown up diplomacy looks like. And what the EU project means to so many citizens on that vast continent. Whilst we sit outside the tent, drunkenly shouting at foreigners.

Beautiful. 🇪🇺
I find this intensely moving. Bridges not walls. Peace not jingoism and war-making. Cooperation not stand offs.We have made a terrible, terrible mistake. #BrexitBritain
I wish all those who lost their lives in WW2 could have seen this moment.

In a democracy, all elections must be held in a free and fair manner. Therefore, the Brexit vote must be invalid. Simply because, the leave campaign, knowingly LIED to the people. And not for any righteous, or patriotic reason. 1/7
But so, the big corporations and the super-rich, could continue with their unethical, tax avoidance shenanigans.

To pull off their Brexit scam, they weaponized social media platforms and the corporate press. 2/7
They coerced, and incentivised the mainstream media, to toe the Brexit line. Which in turn, required them to poison the minds of the voters with: outright lies, fear, misframing, megaphones, noise, smear, distractions, red-herrings, humour, sideshows, misinformation, 3/7

Following allegations of Russian interference in our #BrexitBritain democratic processes, here’s ‘Rule Britannia’ cheekily re-imagined as a Russian romantic piece, complete with Soviet nostalgie colour scheme. 🇷🇺 🎼
#SundayThoughts #music #piano #sundayvibes #musicislife
I love the #StoolBritannia hashtag. 😂💩
There is possibly a series of Soviet treatments of popular #flagshagger 🇬🇧 tunes to be done actually.

I detest Frost's contemptuous attitude to the EU. These are our friends, bonded by history, culture and multi-national families spanning a vast continent. They are our biggest trading market and our closest allies. What the hell are we doing here?
#BrexitHasFailed #BrexitBritain
Absolutely risible, almost paralytically drunk interpretation. #BrexitDenial
It’s appalling bad faith. How can anyone negotiate with a government that behaves in this way? No agreement will have any trust or meaning.

1. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

During this #COVID I am going to create a rolling thread about key issues and articles of interest, just so as you can see the evolution toward a return to normality in 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025; according to predictions by #Aviation!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

The attitude of some UK h/makers, is I'm afraid, a common feature found in holidays abroad. I've heard many a tale about the Master vs Serf behaviour of some Brits!…
3. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

It's not done with us yet:

"...hard to anticipate what the timeline will be for the expected shift of COVID-19 to endemicity..."…

The thread from April👇🏼 is especially relevant as 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools reopen w/ almost ZERO MITIGATIONs to ⬇️#coronavirus transmission/protect people.

Sept 1st 21 -“numbers” many English ppl have become immune to, a stark reminder of a @Conservatives brutal #LivingWithCovid “policy”.
Almost 36,000 new cases.
842 hospital admissions.
207 deaths.

That is roughly 37,000 individuals/families affected by #COVID, yesterday alone!
And potentially 3,600 more cases of #LongCovid to boot!

This is what #LivingWithCovid looks like folks!

@sajidjavid @JonAshworth
And by pure coincidence this is what a lazy, ignorant, selfish, cruel & greedy “strategy” against a global pandemic looks like too.


This is the purest form of #SurvivalOfTheFittest, a plan so grotesque I didn’t think it possible in modern Britain.

Vieles wird verbrämt. Nur mal Wikipedia angucken. Es ist alles offensichtlich. Man muss nur wissen, was man da liest. #Laschet sagt, er sei „rheinisch-katholisch“. Das klingt nach Karneval, Offenheit, Toleranz. Pure Ablenkung.
"Laschet wuchs mit drei jüngeren Brüdern in einer römisch-katholisch geprägten Mittelschichtfamilie im Aachener Stadtteil Burtscheid auf."
Wer Aachen kennt, weiß, wie sehr der katholische Glaube dort das Leben bestimmt. Ich habe dort katholische Burschenschaftler kennengelernt und Opus Dei Mitglieder.*

Richard Drax MP: Are we getting any bilateral agreements with individual EU states?

Lord Frost: Some states might want to do them, but the EU doesn't allow it

Drax: I think you're hinting they cannot

Frost: Yes, but we can always hope the EU will change

..Have you examined where bilateralism is still allowed even though EU countries are within treaties which don't allow them as much latitude?

..Member states can do things with third countries on their own

..When you are a member of the EU and a big member state, people have to deal with you because you can influence things

..When you're outside, it's different, you've got to have good arguments, you have to be persuasive, you've got to present things as win-win
