Austerity is now definitely coming back, 2022 is going to be remembered as the year the @Conservatives put the finishing touches to destroying our country, we will never recover from this unless an immediate #GeneralElectionNow is called #EnoughIsEnough @trussliz is worse than
Johnson who ever thought that was possible not me,@Jeremy_Hunt saying we have difficult decisions to make, NO! @Jeremy_Hunt the decision is easy #GeneralElectionNow it's time the citezens of the United Kingdom had their say, that's what democracy is, as for @trussliz you can say
She's not up to the job along with some quite disgusting things but you voted her in #ToriesThisIsOnYou,it's time the people of the uk were allowed to democratically vote in who we want to run our once great country #GeneralElectionNow

Why are children being deprived of free school meals if their parents income is more that £7,400 take home pay a year,that's £125 a week,why? #ToriesThisIsOnYou
Why is the only thing @KwasiKwarteng can say
At the dispatch box is #antigrowthcoalition when he is challenged,why not an adult debate? #ToriesThisIsOnYou
Why are energy prices gone up 215% while in France they've gone up by 4% #ToriesThisIsOnYou
Why do the @Conservatives believe giving money to the rich is incentive
Rich need a payrise to work harder
Poor need a pay cut to work harder.

Home insulation for homes has been cut exponentially since 2012
Why @Conservatives?

To be clear, BMI is nothing more than a tool of oppression. How?

1. It separates people into different groups using arbitrary and totally inaccurate numbers and then attributes certain false characteristics to each group (healthy/unhealthy, at risk/not at risk)
2. It is DELIBERATELY biased against marginalised groups such as Black & other non white European folks. And disabled folks. (This has nothing to do with bone density or fat so please stop using that as an excuse)
3. It is used to gatekeep medical procedures/treatments/surgeries from those who are often the most vulnerable and in need. It has created a 2 tier medical system.

4. It is used to STEAL FROM (statistically poorer) folks by unfairly increasing their insurance premiums.

“They’ve stolen the railways …
They’ve stolen the post.
They’ve stolen our telephones ..
They’ve stolen our buses.
They’ve stolen our water.
The only reason they haven’t stolen our air is that they can’t get a meter up our noses.”

Next UK PM will be pile on crisis on top of crisis, their only interests are to cede political power to private corporations, hence the Tories track record of anti-governance. I can't believe people aren't out on the streets rallying their communities to say #EnoughlsEnough
The Brexit clean slate is going to be filled up with the most cruel and humiliating 'policies as punishments' the UK will ever have experienced, these are tried and tested tactics of the libertarian right, radical right ideology made flesh. Tories admit there will be much pain.
Tories policies were christened by the radical rights ideology of physical and economic violence. Decades ago social sciences based think tanks were subverted by private corporations partisan interests, they demanded Govt have nothing to do with taxing their wealth accumulation.

60% of working adults work in SMEs

52% of UK GDP is generated by SMEs: £2.3 trillion

70% of SMEs need to renegotiate energy contracts in October (according to Sky News research)

"tories will help low income households with packages announced, & a bit extra"

#EnoughlsEnough #energy
can absolutely no one else see the issue here?

60% of working people in the UK work for SMEs

70% of SMEs are about to see their energy costs go from

10p/kw

to

£1/kw

think of the complicated, intertwined supply chains for most SMEs, raw materials etc

last night the FT reported Truss will immediately invoke Article 16 causing a trade war whilst we have rampant inflation, are heading in to recession & at the moment 70% of businesses will fall off a cliff in October when they renegotiate energy bill
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
several quotes here from 300% increases to over 1,100%.... as I have been alerting everyone to, since the 10th March.

if govt doesn't step in immediately, the UK will have businesses failing faster & harder than they did in 2008
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
here's my thread from the 10th March stating businesses will fall off a cliff, nearly 6 months later STILL NO ACTION has been taken, this is INEXCUSABLE! If I knew it in March, then the govt sure as hell did!

For decades the working class have been told, because of the FPTP system, they need to compromise to get the Tories out, for decades they've been betrayed by so-called Liberal allies in suits, who've promised much, & delivered little. 1/21
For decades many of us have, despite our reservations, voted for the lesser evil, comforting ourselves that at least we didn't vote Tory. 2/21
But what happens when the not Tories, effectively govern just like the them? What are we supposed to do then, grit our teeth and continue to vote for them, when they will bring the same misery to our communities! 3/21

How to explain what a charter city is to a 10 year old.
One day the Govt allows a big company to buy the land your homes are on, they're so wealthy they decide to change the laws so they can make more money. They will draw up a new contract that you have to sign where you agree to live by their rules and not the Govt's anymore.
If the company don't like you for disagreeing with them because they lowered your wages and demanded you work more hours for even less pay, they might force you to leave their town and go and live in a special area they built for the very poor just so you don't bother the company
