I finally have a legit personal & professional news announcement, and it doubles as a #DecadeinReview #lookback: I am moving to Philadelphia in the new year to join @PhillyInquirer as a digital producer! 10.5 yrs ago, I had just finished an internship w their health desk. 1/?
@PhillyInquirer A lot has happened since then. My 1st FT #journalism job @bkreporter where I burned shoe rubber cultivating love/appreciation of #localnews in my home borough as a reporter/magazine EIC/digital editor for four years, then @bklyner, #freelancer life and, currently, @flipboard. 2/?
@PhillyInquirer @bkreporter @bklyner @Flipboard Leaving @flipboard as breaking news editor is bittersweet. 6 mos turned into 2 yrs thanks to valuable work & amazing colleagues who made a remote newsroom feel interactive & seamless. Shoutout @gabyaschwarz @SonaliKamboj @jeelsey @sfine88 @thekenyeung @miaq. 3/?

@DorothyHorrible @patcondell 1. some don't vote as think won't count

In some elections turnout as low as 30% & all that 30% don't vote same way

What if none of other 70% don't want incumbent but don't vote?

Also spoiled ballots are counted AND CHECKED BY CANDIDATES!!

So make your "#SpoiledBallot" count!
@DorothyHorrible @patcondell 2. "#Spoiled" #BallotPapers DON'T get binned

They are counted recorded & reported

And they're pored over by all the candidates in the hope they can claim a vote for themselves, especially if it's a close thing

So make sure you make clear WHY you're not putting an X in any box!
@DorothyHorrible @patcondell 3. Hope everyone undecided turned up at polling booth

But didn't actually "#Spoil" their #Ballot

You should be constructive & do something like adding

#NoneOfTheAbove, #NOTAparty _________ l✖️l

Or add a constructive note

So everyone can see why you didn't put an X in a box

@BBCPolitics @BBCNews 1/ I’ve set up a twitter account just for this response. It seems the MSM are not reporting this across far reaching formats. This will gain a lot of traction with the youth vote on social media. We need this to teach the boomers #Election2019 #labour #Conservatives #BorisJohnson
@BBCPolitics @BBCNews 2/ the mothers waking up tomorrow morning, the children eating their cereal, the elderly before reading their morning paper, the factory workers on the TVs in their lunch break, the commuters tuning in on the radio on their drive home. This needs to be heard!
@BBCPolitics @BBCNews 3/ if nothing is done, this message will fade out over the weekend and be completely forgotten, or even worse, not absorbed by Thursday. We have to force the media’s hand on this. Let’s make this tweet from the BBC trend worldwide. To the point where it is newsworthy in itself.

برطانیہ، قبل از وقت انتخابات کے حوالے سے تھریڈ

برطانیہ میں ایک بار پھر عام انتخابات کی آمد آمد ہے۔
اسی سال 12 دسمبر کو قبل از وقت انتخابات کا انعقاد کیا جائے گا اور عوام اپنا رائے حق دہی استعمال کرے گی.

#GeneralElection19 #brexitriots #Urdu @BBCUrdu
برطانیہ میں انتخابات ہر پانچ سال بعد منعقد کئے جاتے ہیں لیکن آنے والے انتخابات، تقریبا چار سال میں تیسرے انتخابات ہوں گے۔
ان انتخابات میں ووٹرز 650 حلقوں سے ممبرز
آف پارلیمنٹ کا چنائو کریں گے۔

#BrexitDay
#GeneralElection19 #urdu
حالیہ انتخابات میں بریگزیٹ ایشو کو سب سے اہم تصور کیا جارہا ہے اور بظاہر ووٹرز اپنا حق رائے دہی بریگزیٹ کے بارے میں ہی سیاسی جماعتوں کے موقف کو دیکھتے ہوئے استعمال کریں گے۔
لیکن کچھ حلقے نیشنل ہیلتھ سروس سے متعلق معاملات کو بھی اہم تصور کررہے ہیں۔

Basic numbers still favor Dems by far. Dem fundraising is good, including record haul for @debrarodmanva; still getting tons of outside $$, as I told @vpm earlier this month

I heckled you @JustinTrudeau in Cambridge Ontario after spending years sending data to Bardish, the SEC and RCMP specific to the fraud and corruption I witnessed regarding pipelines. You did nothing. I still stand by my words. #cdnpoli #ElectionsCanada #Election2019
I told you of the climate fraud via sworn affidavit. I gave a copy to Bardish regarding RBC and Imperial Oil Climate fraud. A copy is at Wilfred Laurier Archives. Here it is: libarchives.wlu.ca/index.php/rbc-…
Rob Peterson was CEO of Imperial Oil when he wrote this article that refuted their own corporate studies. He later worked as a Director at RBC while Exxon funded climate denial.

Much mirth & jubilation on the construction site this evening so it was chai, samosa & jalebis too.

I’m no longer amazed at the connection of the ordinary Indian from one end of India with the issue of far-off Kashmir.
In all these months to the run up of #Election2019, building toilets, homes, gas connections, Ayushman Bharat were the hot topics …till Pulwama & Balakot happened.

As they say nothing hits hard as something close home.
My office boy, from Jharkhand lost a cousin & a young carpenter from Uttarakhand lost his uncle in the terror attack.

That grief, that anger brought up so much talk about Kashmir that it caught me by surprise having shamefully assumed that such matters

Not a single person in the financial world would agree with what Alberta's new Premiere just said about the financial world & the #ClimateCrisis. To say those things while our province is yet again on fire? We're in Fantasy Land now. It's gonna cost us THREAD #GentThreads #abpoli
Last election Alberta bought lies we wanted to hear from a man only too willing to say them. In this latest quote Premiere Kenney is selling a full blown future-blind fantasy, believable only to the bozos. To investors & insurers? No way. Sad. Laughable /1
Imagine saying *that* in the face of *this*. Now imagine the big money folks believing it /2 cbc.ca/radio/thecurre…

Thread: Spending #VictoriaDay afternoon playing with some data. Looking at different ways to describe the electorate in Canada. Here's where I've landed so far using statistical clustering. Would appreciate feedback on the description/names. #cdnpoli #elxn43 #Election2019
Data is from a national survey of 2,500 Canadians, May 7 to 13, 2019. #cdnpoli
No party can win without building a coalition of these different groups of voters. The Conservatives will look to the conservatives, right populists, and classic liberals for votes. The Liberals will look to the Cosmopolitan left, classic liberals, and green/left populists.

The single one, most important revelation of this build up to #Election2019 has been -
how little the well educated & the privileged understand the process of governance in our country
Is it ignorance or something visceral that makes some one say-
~Look at the filth on our streets.
Why doesn’t Modi clean it up?~

*Did you ever ask Sonia or MMS to clean your streets?*

~No. But at least they didn’t go on & on about #SwachhBharat

*Since we are inured & insensitive there’s a requirement to create social awareness.
A campaign that makes us aware of the role each one of us should play.*

~Okay. So now I’ve to clean the streets ?!?~

*No. But you can at least take responsibility that the cartons & packaging of your new washing machine doesn’t end up in the empty plot at the end of

First of all, thank you Edmonton, for being the intellectual & moral hub of this entire province. The rest of us, evidently, were all too ready to elect to power a team already revealed as white supremacists, homophobes, misogynists, frauds, criminals & climate deniers /2 #abpoli

#Election2019 will be like no other.
Lutyens Elite have never felt so threatened, as now.
They’ve come on to the battlefield to fight the bitter fight, deceit, treachery, claw, bite, whatever it takes to protect their islands of privilege.

This thread on the Existential War…
In 2006 a senior much known bureaucrat from a long lineage of bureaucrats, with a few books to his credit, surrounded by a fawning audience had declared that there was no country as wonderful as India.
The reasons he put forth had nothing to do with the country’s culture, diversity, history, art, architecture, cuisine but were chillingly cynical as was the grating laughter all round …& have remained with me all these years.
