#Recovery”- in economic terms, after the Covid pandemic; "#Power" - in terms of #security, external relations, #defence, #migratory policy, climate; and "#Belonging" - feeling of being part of the common #European political project. 1/3

“The head of the UK’s armed forces has urged private sector cyber specialists and data engineers to sign up as reservists to help fill gaps in the military’s tech capabilities.”

A similar drive makes perfect sense in an Irish context.

However, while we have even worse cyber gaps than our UK counterparts, we lack the legal & administrative framework, cultural flexibility & political will to use reservists to fill them. As our defence & security needs expand into the digital domain, we need to be more adaptable.
“Where we would like to get to is that we no longer distinguish between regulars and reservists particularly . . . that we have a spectrum of commitment from full- to part-time service.”

In the UK, regular personnel can transition to reserve service while keeping their army no.

1/9: The #UK government will soon publish its #IntegratedReview of defence, security, development & #ForeignPolicy. This is an important inflection point: we need a comprehensive, credible vision of the #GlobalBritain agenda after #Brexit. What to expect?.. a thread..
2/9: The #IntegratedReview will set principles to guide individual policies, advocating agile, global British reach in support of democratic values. Johnson’s strap-line is “#UK as a force for good”. But lofty principles will only be credible if hard, practical choices are made.
3/9: Much will be orthodox: supporting effective #multilateralism, rule of law, open #trade. I expect strong commitment to the #US relationship (whatever some say, #Biden is a godsend for Johnson) & lots about the fashionable but nebulous concept of an “#IndoPacific tilt”.

New #UK science body could be used as ‘cover for cronyism’
Advanced Research & Innovation Agency will be exempt from existing procurement rules for ‘maximum flexibility’, says #government
Kate Bingham of the UK Vaccine Taskforce, cited by business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng
as a model for Aria.
A new £800m #government #science and #defence research agency will be exempt from existing procurement rules, prompting warnings from #Labour that it could be used as “cover for #cronyism”.
Originally the brainchild of Dominic #Cummings,
the Advanced Research & Innovation Agency (#Aria) will be more lightly regulated than a normal #government body.
A press notice released to accompany the publication of the bill needed to set up the body said it would imitate the long-established #US agency #Darpa,

Trevor Chinn has funded various Labour MPs over the years including Owen Smith, Tony Blair, Joan Ryan, Ruth Smeeth, Tom Watson, Ian Austin, Rachel Reeves, Lisa Nandy, David Lammy, Liz Kendall, Dan Jarvis, Tristram Hunt, Jack Dromey, Liam Byrne. #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut #BICOM
Chinn has funded BOTH Labour Friends of Israel and Conservative Friends of Israel . The multi-millionaire pro-Israel lobbyist donated $62,000 to Keir Starmer to win the UK Labour Party’s leadership election. April 2020 #LabourLeaks #StarmerOut #BICOM…
Tom Watson, former BICOM staffer Ruth Smeeth and Labour Friends of Israel’s then chair Joan Ryan.

All three played key roles in promoting the smear campaign that Corbyn’s Labour Party was a hotbed of anti-Semitism. BICOM is important to Starmer. #LabourLeaks #Defence #Brexit

1. #phd Vivas are scary, preparation is key. Inspired by a recent pre #viva chat, here are some of the questions I prepped which massively help me during the #Defence, the questions, goal and comments included.

#AcademicTwitter #phdlife #AcademicChatter #phdadvice #phdchat Image
2. Who are your examiners? What's their background, field of initial & #doctoral degree? What have they published? Any special notes on their history? (Industry background, Preference for a specific method).

I tabled this for quick reference to frame any specific questions. Image
3. A key question format learned from the amazing @SMARTlab program was the "Swiss Cheese" question. A question looking to talk about a similar but different area of research!

This is common when examiners are from closely related but different fields. Image

I've always maintained #India needs legislation mandating a #Defence budget at 2.5% of #GDP exclusive of pensions . This will force every govt to control populist spending for votes to help build up the Security of #India .
Absolutely , we cannot keep handing out largesse . As I keep pointing out #India spends ₹300,000cr to buy 6% of total crops on #MSP .That's 1/8th of our total receipts of ₹24,00,000cr . Guaranteeing price on all crops will bankrupt #India .
Add in expenses on subsidies on fertilizer, seeds ,free electricity etc & loan waivers & the expenses on the #agriculture sector alone is over ₹10,00,000cr .#money that comes out of the pocket of the taxpayers .
There has to be a better more sustainable way to support #Farmers.

1. Form a Governing Council, including representatives from the opposition (none that represent corruption) and other non-political public members, as a form of a unity government until the next elections.
2. Establish Special Council Advisors from Armenian academia, diaspora and expert non-Armenians, to help develop policy and convey clear messages, so there are no more unscripted nuanced political speeches that cause confusion and division.
3. IF the Prime Minister intends to resign, then resignation should be conducted in an orderly transition that doesn’t allow #democracy’s enemies (such as former corrupt officials) to take advantage.

Underlines the Bipartisan nature of #US strategic acquisitions .The Presidential Election has nil effect on acquisition plans or #Defence preparedness. In contrast #India loses 1-2yrs each time a govt changes . This fallacy must be corrected if we are to grow as a global power.
This can be easily corrected by
1) A national #Defence council with one representative from each state govt, CDS & the CAG that can vote on acquisitions in election years.
2) A fixed minimum allocation of 1.5% of GDP for CAPEX that must be legally mandated for all govts .
The thing is in India the Lok Sabha elections put all LS MP seats into elections . That said, your idea could work with the RS MPs taking over under the aegis of the @rashtrapatibhvn I guess!

Gov't of #Finland new foreign & security policy white paper is out!
(Finnish & Swedish versions too)…
I'll add somewhat random observations in the format: quote + quip in this thread.

The order should not be taken as signifying anything in terms of priorities of the report etc..
Shout out to @Ulkoministerio, who in their feed highlight continuity, predictability and long-term perspective as keys of Finnish foreign & security policy (F&SP) which is based on a human rights framework + coop on global challenges within int'l rules based order.

1/10: A win for #JoeBiden in the #USElection next week would be good for the overall interests of #UK but problematic for the #BorisJohnson government. How would the arrival of a Biden administration affect British #foreignpolicy? A thread..
2/10: As the song says, it ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it. Not all #Trump foreign policy was bad (though much was). He made an important call on #China. But he has no idea of the common good, squandered American leadership & damaged alliances & institutions.
3/10: #Biden would be a reversion toward the norm. Unexciting perhaps, but needed & welcome. But he would not mean wholesale change in #US foreign policy. The pressures of #COVID19, political polarisation & economic dislocation remain. As will the tough geopolitical environment.

SCL - a Very British Coup…
SCL – a Very British Coup

Liam O Hare on the deep connections between @CambridgeAnalytica’s parent company Strategic Communication Laboratories (#SCL Group) and the #Conservative Party and military establishment,
‘Board members include an array of #Lords, #Tory donors, ex-British #army officers and defense contractors. This is scandal that cuts to the heart of the #British establishment.’

The scandal around mass data harvesting by Cambridge Analytica took a new twist on Monday.
A Channel 4 news undercover investigation revealed that the company’s Eton-educated CEO Alexander #Nix offered to use dirty tricks – including the use of bribery and sex workers – to entrap #politicians and subvert #elections.
