Wow...look at who pops up in the ‘Active Measures’ video on Prime, @BorisJohnson - it’s #JackWakefield’s former boss, #DmytroFirtash! Wakefield is #DominicCummings’ brother-in-law & Firtash helps #Putin launder #Russian money! #ReleaseTheRussianReport

#Firtash is friends with #PaulManafort who was #DonaldTrump’s campaign manager - Manafort was imprisoned for corruption and fraud. Manafort helped to launder money in US for #Firtash and indirectly #Putin.

#Firtash bought the Brompton Road Tube Station at the eleventh hour. The redevelopment of disused tube stations was a (flagging) project for #BorisJohnson during his time as Mayor of #London. Firtash came out of nowhere to buy the station, bypassing the bidding process

The Drunkard of Europe

IT WAS ONE OF THE WORST DAYS OF MY LIFE. I know for a fact it was the worst day in at least two people’s lives. In the early hours of the morning the phone rang. On the other end of the phone my friend was speaking to me in a stranger’s voice
. Her husband was beside himself with shock and grief, and she was calmly explaining to me what had happened. I say ‘calmly,’ but this wasn’t calm. It was emotionless, a sort of thousand-yard stare of a voice, producing something that sounded for all the world like the person
I knew while she was somewhere else. This voice was absent, it was hollow, and this voice woke me up. Their beautiful baby daughter had died in her sleep.An hour later I was standing by this little angel’s cot, receiving her into my arms from her mother.

1/n This is an important question. The *main* answer is, median age of those infected in Germany. There are lots of factors hidden behind that, but that's the main factor.
The next main factor: quality of Germany's healthcare.
2/n As you point out, @AminTheReader, #Germany has a relatively higher #COVID19 infection rate. In fact it was *officially* higher than #Britain's, till April 28.
(officially only; the UK was way under-testing).
3/Like many places, #COVID19 started in Germany w/ the relatively well-off; people returning from skiing holidays in Italy. But actions Germany undertook *after* that were crucial. They meant median age of infected stayed lower than in many other countries

An extraordinary artefact in the West's Cultural Revolution >> Just watch what this crowd does to Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, in every way a Leftist supporter of this movement, when he would not support abolishing the police department.

Last Thursday my German review of “The World’s of J.R.R. #Tolkien” by @JohnGarthWriter was published by the @GermanTolkSoc Since an English version won’t be published soon, I decided to write a looong thread here to tell you what I think about it. (1/20)…
(Please consider that I am a non-native speaker of English and also dyslexic, so no mean comments about grammar please! #MiddleEarth is spelled incorrectly on purpose!) (2/20) #Tolkien
I don’t want to talk much about the contents. John has posted a video some weeks ago in which he shows what’s included and I haven’t anything to add. John presents theories by both other #Tolkien scholars and himself, he actually refutes some very popular ideas as baseless (3/20)

#China warning: #Britain prepares to back #Taiwan & DEFEND it against #Beijing aggression

EXCLUSIVE: DISCUSSIONS are taking place for the UK to increase its support & recognition for Taiwan as tensions mount with China

Wow, this needs confirmation.......…
The Sunday Express has learnt that ministers are considering how to support Taiwan more & could defy Beijing & formally recognise it within five years.

A source said “don’t be surprised if we end up recognising Taiwan & joining others in defending it with military assets.”
As the coronavirus fallout continues with China there is increasing anger over how the Communist regime has treated Hong Kong and is now threatening Taiwan.

Moves to support Taiwan have been welcomed by senior Tories.

One of @MichelBarnier's complaints after the last round of #Brexit talks was that the #UK was seeking mutual recognition of qualifications for service providers on a similar basis to #EU member states. What does that mean? A short thread: 1/
#EU officials say that #Britain wants #UK lawyers and auditors, for example, to be able to operate in the #EU as they do now. "Today there seems to be a real lack of understanding of the automatic, mechanical consequences of leaving the single market," @MichelBarnier said. 2/
It's worth noting that, even within the single market, mutual recognition of qualifications for services providers is still very much a work in progress. This @EU_Commission webpage sets it out well:… 3/

REVEALED: The anatomy of a very British #fakenews psy-op using #KawasakiDisease.

1. On 17th May, an a/c (@JuneSim63) posted a pic at 0900 supposedly from @Leeds_Childrens PICU dept of a little girl called 'Scarlett Roberts' on a ventilator.
2. At 0900, the #Marr show began on #BBC.

At 0909, the 'father' (@MrRoberts_1) RT'd @JuneSim63.

After inspecting the JPG metadata, specific info was missing from it, which was odd, as if the file was 'prepared' for release rather than an organic shot, a moment in time.
3. The overall delivery & 'timing alongside #Marr #Ridge & #COVID19 tags seemed too designed, than authentic.

On @GMB today, the surname changed to 'Nicholas' rather than 'Roberts', the father's name. Earlier this morning via an article from @TheSun - the name was unchanged.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

1/n Messaging from the UK government on how they will handle #COVID19 has been terrible. First, they miscommunicated their #herdimmunity strategy - which was flawed, in any case. Now they're saying their strategy was so flawed they're dropping it.…
2/ #COVID19 does not behave like the flu. Flu-based models of harm mitigation don't fit it. As soon as #COVID19 gets over around 200 in a country, it moves too fast for only #herdimmunity strategies; cocooning AND building healthcare-for-surge are essential.

This morning my children will be in school, learning maths and playing in the playground.

Roadside Dad will be either driving or outdoors, keeping busy.

I am going to see my friend about filling out a consultatation response so I don't get run out of my own country.

What I hope you will be doing is taking a minute to fill this in and share!!

Otherwise proposed powers to effectively wipe out travelling life in the UK will pass unchallenged.

(Then can be applied to criminalise protest and homelessness too).…

I get that some of you are just finding out about this now (my pinned thread from November explains what the proposals would do to me).

I get that some of you once had an experience with a bad encampment or whatever.

I hear you.

But hear me back right now, time is short.

Despite the massacres and the unimaginable cruelty perpetrated by the imperialist invaders, despite thousands of innocent people tortured and killed, the courage and faith of the Yemeni people will prevail in the end.

By Brecht Jonkers…
This month (March 2020) marks a tragic anniversary of a conflict that has plagued the people of Yemen for five years. On March 26, 2015, a coalition of the most corrupt and bloodthirsty regimes in the Arab world invaded the Republic of #Yemen, led by #Ksa and the #UAE and
with full backing of the #US, #Britain and the #Zionist entity.

In their rabid hatred of the blessed land and people of #Yemen, and in their desperate attempt to destroy the Ansarullah liberation movement and the National Salvation Government that had freed #Yemen from

This LIE destroyed Jeremy #Corbyn, Labour's chances of winning the recent General Election ... and handed power, and control over your lives,
to the ultra-right wing Tories.

#Britain's democracy and your democratic rights, in other words, were stolen by the undemocratic, unrepresentative, ultra-right-wing 'Jewish' Board of Deputies.

It will shock you to discover that in a country with a population of more than SIXTY SIX MILLION PEOPLE, there are ONLY 260,000 JEWS!

Presenting Aaneel mussarat a Pakistani #British immigrant who finances all Anti-#India Protests in #Britain
He is also one of the biggest financiers to #ImranKhan & his party.
Posting some photographs from his meetings with friends .
I am posting these without comment.
It may very well be ( however unlikely) that the #BollywoodCelebs pictured are innocent acquaintances & do not know of the nefarious designs Mr Mussarat has vis a vis #India.
Would expect them to boycott him now.
Again I do not know or claim to know if Mr Mussarat has any links to why half of #Bollywood is supporting the #TukdeTukdeGang & standing against a government which has given #Pakistan much pain.
I'll simply request @HMOIndia @NIA_India to investigate these "friendships".

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
