@SpelthorneBC how long does it usually take for your monitoring officer to reply to a residents formal complaint when it has already been upheld that a #conservative #Councillor - namely Cllr Michelle Gibson - DID breach #GDPR when she gave my address to her other half please?
@shamusdoherty @cazbie16 @Sammy_18_ @Lisa_SEND @TheRealGrumpDad @CharlieL28 @SENWorldcom @L4ASurrey STILL rumbling on🤔 @ICOnews as the holder of my own data can i freely share my communications? The DPO at #Spelthorne council upheld my GDPR complaint about Cllr Gibson! #GDPR
I have of course raised this as a formal complaint no #Councillor should feel free to misuse their power to use residents personal data to allow someone to try to intimidate them! It’s absolutely disgraceful!! #ConservativeGovernment #LocalElections2021 #LocalElections #politics

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/04/26/bri…
From #Leveson to #Brexit, phone-hacking to #CambridgeAnalytica, Peter Jukes sees a consistent theme – parties on the run from the rule of law. And how Dominic #Cummings could end the cycle of corruption

During the current furore over leaks from Number 10,
and the apparent internecine warfare between Boris #Johnson and his former senior advisor Dominic #Cummings, one piece of information emerged which, if true, does a lot to explain the current febrile state of British politics.
According to Caroline Wheeler and Gabriel Pogrund

NEVER forget this. #DougFord has been the client of one of the most manipulative dark actors to ever operate on the Canadian political landscape: Navigator. They have coached him, planted stories in the press, shaped social media responses through inauthentic activity. #ONpoli
Remember this piece of lockstep propaganda in #cdnmedia?

Take note of who falls for #DougFord’s ridiculous crocodile tears today. The Trudeau gov’t transferred billions to Ford for #COVID19Ontario relief measures. Ford hoarded the💰instead of implementing #PaidSickDays. #ONpoli
Now that there are petitions demanding #DougFordResign, suddenly this incompetent conman can produce the #PaidSickDays that he was given federal funding to help pay for, OVER A YEAR AGO? Anyone who falls for #DougFord’s soap opera acting, is a fool, a liar or an enabler. #onpoli

Did you behave with selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty & leadership when you had sex on your sofa in your marital home with your mistress you helped get money & lied about it?

Boris Johnson: "Yes" 🤦‍♂️

#TorySleaze #ToryLiars #DowningStreet Are affairs and lying are open and honest?
Here is @paulwaugh's question about Jennifer Arcuri..

..Boris Johnson answered one word

"Yes"

The PM seems to have had the first ever affair with honesty & integrity 🤔

#TorySleaze #ToryCronyism #ToryCorruption #ToryLies #ToryHypocrisy #ToryShambles
Jennifer Arcuri says her romance with Boris Johnson - who was Mayor of London at the time – lasted from 2012 to 2016, while he was married to Marina, mother of their 4 children.

He spoke at her events & she went on to receive £126,000 of taxpayer money 😲

A #Tory billionaire bankrolled ‘herd immunity’ #scientist who advised PM against lockdown
Exclusive: Johnson ruled out lockdown 24 hours after meeting with Sunetra #Gupta – resulting in ‘1.3m extra #COVID infections’
#Johnson effectively side-lined his official medical and scientific advisers to rule out a lockdown
A #scientist who advised Boris Johnson against introducing a lockdown last autumn was bankrolled by a billionaire Tory donor, openDemocracy can reveal today.
#Johnson’s apparent U-turn decision to not impose #lockdown, which experts say may have resulted in an estimated 1.3 million extra #COVID infections, came just 24 hours after meeting with Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra #Gupta. Last Year

What went through David #Cameron’s head? Was it just a giant dollar sign, or did the former prime minister think #lobbying was his remaining calling in life?
Cameron’s work for disgraced banker Lex #Greensill tarnishes a legacy already darkened by misjudgments over #Brexit
& #austerity. We thought he was hiding in a shed in #Oxfordshire. In fact, in early 2020, he was camping with #Greensill and Crown Prince Mohammed bin #Salman in Saudi Arabia.
Then he was texting chancellor Rishi #Sunak to ask for #Greensill’s now collapsed financial group to get more #coronavirus support.
Former prime ministers earn enough for speeches to banks; they should not have to speak for them too.

Did you know that you're paying for @pritipatel to see a diet consultant?

🤷‍♂️
It starts with £669 of cupcakes and after £100,000 of beauty products inevitably ends in a £2000 diet consultant.

When all @PritiPatel really needs to do is love herself..

..and others. Like immigrants. Like her parents.

She must really hate herself :(

#HomeOffice #CreditCard
I have to ask @pritipatel .. just how beautiful can brows be for £77,000!

I can do your threading for you with a piece of string and a recliner armchair.

But £77k! Priti! We could have put up a safe channel crossing service with that and ended the dangerous gangs..

🧵 Far-right, anti-choice #Conservatives in public office.

This is Michael Barrett, #CPC shadow minister for “ethics”. Barrett routinely sends profoundly dishonest mail-outs to his constituents, which only occasionally get challenged by the targets of his disinformation #cdnpoli
Barrett is cut from the same broad cloth as #PierrePoilievre, Derek Sloan & other #Conservative members across 🇨🇦. All of them helped into power by far right anti-choice organizations like Campaign Life Coalition & “RightNow”. #cdnpoli #CPC
Both CLC & RightNow are far right disinformation dispensing anti-choice groups whose members oppose abortion even in the case of rape & incest. Their extremist positions even target #Conservatives with less extreme views. #cdnpoli

Dear @susannareid100 & @piersmorgan
In advance of your program tomorrow I wonder if I could ask for your help?
If any celebrity duo can make this happen, it is you two!
The ROAD MAP is here & there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
There are many positives in the #PrimeMinister’s cautious approach but the BIG BANG opening of English schools on 8th March with very few added mitigations is reckless & irresponsible, risking everything we have collectively achieved so far.
We all know that schools & early years settings are risky places to work in. Whatever the stats tell us about teachers en masse, I feel that for individual staff, being forced to work in crowded, poorly ventilated rooms w/ many others protected by little #PPE , is a VERY BIG ASK!

The right-wing billionaire gained unprecedented access to ministers in August and September last year, reports
Right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch repeatedly gained special access to the UK #Government in recent months, #Byline Times can reveal.
Newly-released records show that News Corporation CEO #Murdoch and his right-hand woman Rebekah Brooks held seven private meetings with five senior ministers over a seven-week period in August and September 2020.
This included a meeting between Murdoch and Boris Johnson
on 18 September, followed just a few days later on 21 September by a meeting between News UK CEO Brooks and the Prime Minister.
Rishi #Sunak was taken out to lunch by Murdoch on 26 August – perhaps benefitting from the Chancellor’s ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme –

Little is known about the interests of the #doctors, #scientists, and #academics on whose advice the #UK #government relies to manage the #pandemic.
Attempts to discover more are frequently thwarted, finds Paul D Thacker
As the number of UK deaths caused by #covid-19 reached 50 000 in early Nov, England enacted a second national lockdown to control the epidemic.
Boris Johnson’s government put these measures into action after months of controversial and sometimes confusing policies,
including the “rule of six,” regional tiered controls, and directions to “stay alert.”
At the same time, the #govt has faced mounting questions about #procurement decisions, from personal protective equipment #PPE to #testing kits, from #vaccine deals

looks at diluted parliamentary oversight after two landmark reports on dirty data and dark money
The Unresolved Investigation
The Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham was questioned last week by the Commons’ Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee –
specifically, its Sub-Committee on Disinformation – and, thanks to dogged, well-briefed questions by particular MPs, we learned a lot.
We learned, for example, that #Facebook’s secret deal with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in October 2019

A rare example of #Immigration that's unambiguously good. 5 million people from Hong Kong would substantially improve England.
Hong Kongese people may fail to integrate and may not accept British traditions like sexually abusing young female dhimmis, doing acid attacks or stabbing each other to death in gang-related violence.

But... that's a good thing!

they might also vote #Conservative - after all, they just escaped from the PRC, are they really going to side with its UK branch?

Well, we shall see.

The @NFIB #survey doesn't get much #media attention, but it should. Small businesses make up almost 70% of #employment and their #confidence tells us much about the #economy and #smallcap stocks.

In December, the #NFIB survey declined to 95.9 from a peak of 108.8. Notably, many suggest the drop was “#politically driven” by #conservative owners. While there was indeed a drop following the election, the decline continues what started in 2018.

Hopes for a #strong #economic recovery may be premature. While #stimulus will give a short-term lift to the economy, once it is spent, growth fades. Businesses won't #invest into artificial supports.

Kate Bingham, chair of the #government’s #vaccine taskforce, is facing questions over whether she will benefit from a $65m (£49m) UK #taxpayer-backed investment into a fund run by her private equity firm.
Bingham, a venture capitalist married to Treasury minister Jesse #Norman, has already come under fire over allegations she revealed sensitive information to a private investors’ conference and insisted on hiring costly PR advisers.
She is expected to leave her post at the end of the year, according to a government source who said her contract ran until January 2021 and she had always intended to leave at that point.

#NadhimZahawi is the owner and director of a newly-established medical company, Companies House records show.
Lana #Saib is listed as the owner, with a 75%+ shareholding, of a firm called ‘Warren Medical Limited‘.
The company was incorporated on 10 June 2020 under the name “#Zahawi #Warren Limited”, before being changed a day later to its current title.
On its Companies House page, #Saib’s firm is listed as trading in real estate, yet its name clearly indicates a healthcare specialism.
The company does not appear to have a website that could provide more information.
The two other directors of the company – Ahmad #Shanshal and Jaafar Shanshal – are the sons of #Zahawi and #Saib.

I do get annoyed at the occasional conservative who really believes disability is a made up category

Not saying gov welfare is the best system, but there is a need in every society to protect the feeble and truly weak
#Disability #Health #MedTwitter #ChronicPain #Conservative
We learned the hard way from the Soviet Union, Yahtzee Germany, Eugenics Europe, CCP China, and the Japanese Empire what happens to a society when they sell their souls and try to wash their hands of disabled people
