They call Harry scathing ,I think the MSM is severally scathing towards Harry.
Harry has and is doing what many of us want to do,hold the MSM to account,the utter rubbish the MSM print everyday all over their front pages is boring,uninteresting and more than a tad out of touch,
Do they know the NHS is at crisis point?,do they know that @SteveBarclay and @RishiSunak is playing chicken with our lives?,watching the Government do nothing! literally nothing to avert this impending crisis in the NHS is of no consequence to them,the #CostOfLivingCrises is of
No interest maybe they know like us it's actually a #CostofGreedCrisis.
Why won't they hold this Government to account?,why do they avoid the important issues,maybe, just maybe they are closer than they would like us to know and understand,who knows.
Back to Harry I say good for

🏛 Yesterday, Susan Hall, chairman of the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee told the Telegraph:

“The silent majority are sick to the back teeth of having their lives disrupted by the gridlock that these demonstrations cause.
“It makes no sense to me at all that the police are not able to remove these people.”

💀 Well, Susan, ordinary people are sick to the back teeth of having to accept that their children won’t have liveable future.

🛢 It makes no sense to anyone at all that the Government is pushing through new fossil fuel licenses, when 77% of the UK public want the Government to do more to tackle the climate crisis.

🕊 Democracy is a precious & essential part of our society. Our leadership must always be accountable to the people, & if they are not, we risk oppression. We are, without a doubt, lucky to live in a liberal representational democracy, & when the time comes to vote, we should.
So why then, are people acting politically, with Civil Resistance, outside of this mechanism?

These actions take place as the UK launches its first oil and gas licensing round since 2019 on Friday, aiming to award more than 100 licenses to ramp up domestic oil and gas production and destroy the lives of every future generation.

#OccupyWestminster #ClimateCrisis
The disruption will end when the Government makes a statement that it will halt all future licensing and consents for the exploration, development and production of fossil fuels in the UK. Meet at 11 am outside Downing St. every day of October to Occupy Westminster.

The UK now has a record number of billionaires with 177, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

The combined wealth of the UK's billionaires stands at £653 BILLION, up more than £55bn (9.4%) on the total wealth of the billionaires in last year's Rich List.

Out of 275 parties in 61 countries, the unhinged UK
@Conservatives are now THE most economically right-wing major party in the western world.

They are completely unmoored from the British public on economics, & way out of step even with their own voters.…
The "general recipe for creating highly satisfied citizens: ensure that state institutions are of high quality, non-corrupt, able to deliver what they promise, & generous in taking care of citizens in various adversities".

The opposite of Britain then.🇬🇧

Multimillionaire hedge funder Crispin Odey, who has donated £1.7m+ to the Tories, UKIP & pro-Brexit campaigns, has made another killing betting on Britain's economic meltdown, saying his bets against Govt bonds are “the gifts that keep on giving”.…
Odey, who was a leading backer of Brexit, came to prominence during the 2008 financial crisis, when he made a fortune shorting banking shares.

And now Odey has made another killing by wagering against British government bonds, with his firm's main fund up 145% in 2022. Image
Odey is on the Sunday Times Rich List for his £825 million fortune, & he has personally managed some $4 billion in assets Odey Asset Management.

Back in 2007 Odey’s firm incubated Jacob Rees-Mogg’s just-launched Somerset Capital Management before it received regulatory approval. Image

The cranks at US libertarian billionaire-funded #Spiked have sent an email asking for money to help fund their divisive propaganda: "It’s a difficult time out there financially for many people... Over the next few weeks, we’re doing a donation drive!"
#Spiked are divisive & dangerous, ideologically extreme, #propagandists.

A joint investigation between @DeSmog & The @guardian revealed that #Spiked US Inc. received funding from the Charles Koch Foundation between 2016 & 2018 to the tune of $300,000.…
#Spiked is just one of the myriad #propaganda wings of the dangerous free-market growth ideology having profoundly harmful impacts on individuals, communities, societies, countries & democracies across the world, as well leading to environmental degradation & the #ClimateCrisis.

Tez Burns, a 34 year old bicycle mechanic from Swansea, was imprisoned last week for peacefully demanding that the #Government stops giving out new oil and gas licences. Oil is causing the climate and #CostOfLivingCrisis, making us poorer, destroying jobs and killing us now.
“Civil resistance is our best chance of ending the cost of living crisis and the climate crisis, everything else has been tried and failed. It is the best use of our time and energy if we want change to happen.
“Rather than wasting billions subsidising the rising cost of energy and putting more money in the pockets of the oil companies, protect your citizens by investing in renewable energy and insulating our homes.

Expectations for #Brexit benefits have in fact mirrored hopes of #iraq invasion unearthing WOMD.

Hopes for cheaper food/fuel have seen 🇬🇧 prices soar above EU as 🇬🇧 businesses drown in red tape.

Even #Brexit opportunities minister failed to identify Brexit bonuses.

But … 🧵
Rees-Mogg was promoted to business secretary and now in charge of cutting regulation to “boost business-led growth and investment”.

A crucial job as 🇬🇧 is crushed by global energy crisis — a role that one of wealthiest in cabinet is expected to relish.

But who will benefit?
@MarkJLittlewood says JRM is instinctively opposed to heavy-handed regs … he once observed that he’s not sure it wld have been possible to set up Somerset Capital due to growth in financial regs.

Regulations introduced to protect people from repeat of 2008 financial crisis.

The inextricable link between material consumption & GDP makes infinite-growth incompatible with ecological sustainability - so how do we transition to alternative economic paradigms founded on the reconciliation of equitable human well-being with ecological integrity?
Even within mainstream economics, the growth orthodoxy is being challenged, and not merely because of a heightened awareness of environmental perils...…
In “Good Economics for Hard Times,” two 2019 Nobel Prize winners in Economics, Abhijit Banerjee & Esther Duflo, say larger GDP doesn’t necessarily mean a rise in human well-being—especially if it isn’t distributed equitably—& the pursuit of it can sometimes be counterproductive.

I signed up as organiser with @dontpayuk, because I want to help as much as I can in my local community while #CostOfGreedCrisis is looming over us all.

Meanwhile, some leftists spread, frankly, hilarious statements about Don't Pay UK. A 🧵. 1/14
One of the common themes in these complaints is something like: it looks too professional, surely it can't be genuine grassroots! To these people, I say: you sound like you would not be able to organise your own bday party. People have jobs and skills and brains. 2/14
Activists organised and continue organising things big and small, often without being paid and with, literally, no budgets. Many work their arses off after their day jobs just because they believe in something. If you are unaware of it, then the joke is on you. Be better. 3/14
