London police officers routinely made jokes about rape and disabled people and exchanged racist messages. The same ones who protected @BorisJohnson & his #DowningStreet 24-hour party people when others couldn't say goodbye to their dying loved ones.…
@BorisJohnson @metpoliceuk "said in a statement that the actions of the police officers in central London that the report detailed do 'not represent the values' of the force."

Yes. They do.
@BorisJohnson @metpoliceuk In one exchange, two @metpoliceuk officers talked about domestic violence, with one officer writing about women, “Knock a bird about and she will love you. Human nature.”

In another exchange, a male officer told a female officer, “I would happily rape you.”

Gurkhas and the British

Men from the hillsides of Nepal began joining the British Army in 1815,right after the end of the 1st phase of the Anglo-Gurkha War of 1814-16.They have been serving the British Crown ever since.#Gurkha #Gurkhas #Nepal #ENGITA #Eng…
The Gurkhas played an essential role in establishing the British Raj in India and fought for the British in Afghanistan, what was then Burma, Tibet and in countless other conflicts.

#England #Britain #British #Army #BritishArmy #Eng #ENGITA #Euro2020Final #EuroFinal #EURO2020
In the first world war alone, tiny Nepal,with a population of around 5 million, sent over 200,000 Gurkhas to fight for the British. 1 in 10 never returned. In the second world war over 250,000 Gurkhas fought alongside the British and more than 33,000 never returned.

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

Scenes from #BlackLivesMatter 
protest in London. Footage of a police horse without its rider, running through a crowd in Whitehall.whitehall
(footage via @TruthRaiderHQ). #BlackLivesMatterUK #BlackLivesMatterlondon
It’s unclear why mounted police officers were ordered to charge (slowly) at protestors down Whitehall.

Unsurprisingly, the move has escalated tensions. (Footage via @matthabusby)
#BlackLivesMatter #BlackLivesMatterUK #BlackLivesMatterlondon
Footage of the mounted police officer being knocked off the horse (via @bog_pc).

It appears that the horse was spooked & galloped towards the crowd.

It seems to run beneath a traffic sign which strikes the officer causing him/her to fall off backwards.

"The Lancet‘s fraudulent concealment of genetics, and its own conflicting interests, while condemning #coronavirus conspiracy theorists, gives the appearance of “crisis capitalism,” and complicity in the COVID-19-SARS/HIV-1 #Wuhan ‘Event 201‘ biocrime." Image
The 'Scientific' arguments going on behind the scenes on #Covid_19 should be a wake-up call to the 'TRUE' dangers the world is being exposed to! 'BOTH' sides of the argument are labelling the other 'Conspiracy Theorists'. Only one of them can be! Image
The Lancet writes that "Conspiracy theories do nothing but create fear, rumours, and prejudice...." #Covid_19 Image

What #ParliamentShutDown is about.
A thread on strategy and tactics.

Premises: Cummings is the decision maker, a rare beast who understands at least the most fundamental rules of strategy. His final aim is to consolidate power.

#Brexit is a tool, not the aim.
In a confrontation with multiple players, only a fool thinks it's possible to plot a precise route to victory. Smarter people know that the best way to increase the chances of success is to maximise one's own options and reduce the options available to the opposition.
#ParliamentShutDown does this in multiple ways.
1st: it forces honest democrats to fight back, engaging in a battle chosen by Cummings. This is bad, but not baiting is even worse! It already is a tactical cost we can't avoid paying.

Drink! #DowningStreet
The "Tusk didn't explain his position" line ignores the detailed explanation of the position which Barnier recently gave to the Commons. #DowningStreet
"Your rights will be protected in case of no deal" pledge to @The3Million - rather ambiguous #DowningStreet
