Establishment Psychopathy: a selection of evidence setting out some of the ways in which colonial violence & structural racism continue to privilege our “ruling class”... [thread of threads] 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #ColonialViolence #BritishEmpire #ReparationsNow #BlackLivesMatter Image
The magnificent #BlackLivesMatter protests are proof of structural racism around the world... This thread ⬇️ shows how the UK Establishment still benefits from slave money, and why it will ALWAYS resist a proper discussion of #history. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #Slavery #RhodesMustFall
Colonial wrongdoing was often rewarded with wealth and a peerage… Our ludicrous system means that this chap #Trenchard ⬇️ gets to make our laws in part because his grandfather liked to burn villages in #Nigeria. 😧✊🌹🇪🇺🇳🇬 #SystemChange #ToriesOut #COVID19

A thread about Establishment wealth, reparations, & why the Tories will *always* defend the statues of slavers & Empire racists… 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #reparations #ColonialViolence #resist #slavery #BlackLivesMatter
This chap is Richard Drax, Tory MP for South Dorset since 2010. His full name is Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, and he comes from a long line of Tory MPs and other assorted Establishment figures over the centuries. 😋✊🌹🇪🇺 #Drax #ScroogeMcDuck
He owns c14,000 acres of Dorset, making him the largest private landowner in the county. Pic shows his country seat, Charborough House. 🧐 #NiceGaff #Dorset #CountryLife

Why you spreading divisive inflammatory violence rioting+arson normalising enabling promoting encouraging & glorifying left-wing propaganda

More whites than blacks killed by police in US

Black cop more likely to kill black than white cop

Considering VASTLY higher level of armed violent & lethal crime carried carried out by blacks are FEWER blacks killed by police even pro rata

#BBC @BBCNews
3. #FFS #BBCNews @BBC

Most killing by blacks

More whites are killed by blacks than blacks by whites

Most blacks are killed by fellow blacks

So stop spreading #BLM spin lies & propaganda

Stop being riot arson murder normalisers apologists enablers facilitators

A thread about Scotland, solidarity against dictatorship, and the connection between Chilean fascism and the disaster of Brexit. 🧐✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱#NaePasaran #StopFascism #Brexit #ToriesOut #solidarity #history
I recently saw the extraordinary film “Nae Pasaran”, a powerful, deeply moving story of Scottish workers standing up to the fascist dictatorship in Chile in the 1970s… 🤓✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱 #NaePasaran #StopFascism #solidarity #Scotland #Chile @debasersfilms @naepasaran
One day in March 1974, an engineer at the Rolls Royce plant in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, noticed that there were Chilean aircraft engines in the production line, waiting to be refurbished. They were from Hawker Hunter jets owned by the Chilean Air Force. 😀✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳 #Scotland

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

A short thread on Tory loon Gerald Howarth, former MP for #Aldershot, summarising his comprehensive awfulness. 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 #ToriesOut #ToriesKill #COVID19 #ToryGenocide
Young Gerald showed an early desire to be on the wrong side of history, joining the Conservative Party in 1964 while still a teenager. In that year, the Tories were busy conducting one of the most racist election campaigns ever 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #racism

theguardian.com/world/2014/oct…
In March 1968, while millions of young people around the world protested against US violence in Vietnam, Howarth attended the famous Grosvenor Square demo to protest IN FAVOUR of the war… 😮✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ffs #ToriesOut #Vietnam

A thread about the English Establishment, state psychopathy, #COVID19… and why it really matters how people in power think. 🧐✊🇪🇺🇻🇳#history #ToriesOut #resist 🦠
The popular idea of a colonial official during the British Empire days was of a paternal figure dispensing justice and spreading civilisation, as in the 1935 film “Sanders of the River” (see pic), a grossly patronising tale set in colonial #Nigeria... 😬🇳🇬 #BritishEmpire #Korda
The reality was, of course, very different. Consider the work of Charles Callwell, a British soldier with much colonial experience, pictured here on the WWI Caucasus Front as a Major-General in 1916. #Callwell #SmallWars #ColonialViolence 🇹🇷🇷🇺

1/ Ready for some hopeful signs? We’ve been following the trends for independent #PCP practices very closely during COVID and there’s some truly bright spots to share this week.
2/ Our community of independent practices includes 14,000 clinicians in both #FFS and #DPC practices. In early March, there was panic as some practices told us they would be out of business as early as May with appointments cancelling at a dramatic rate.
3/ Thankfully @CMSgov listened. And they offered help. Quickly. Arranging up to 3 months of advance payment for Medicare providers in just one week. My dad’s solo primary care practice got its advance last week:

A thread about #COVID19, colonial violence, and how the English class system is wrecking the country. 🧐✊🇪🇺#coronavirus #ToriesOut #history #SystemChange #JohnsonMustGo 🦠
This chap is Hugh Trenchard, or “viscount” Trenchard*, a Tory member of the House of the Lords… 🤨🇪🇺 #ToriesOut

*footnote: I don’t recognise titles for living people, having abolished the honours system. I use them for historical personages, for the avoidance of confusion…
Being a reliable Tory footsoldier, naturally Trenchard has offered his “strong support” to Boris Johnson for his handling of the #coronavirus emergency… 😖✊🇪🇺🦠 #resist #liars #COVID19 #ToriesOut #ToryShambles

Thread:

Today is the last day of @FFsake_ as we know it.

Two years ago, @AmandaCC92, @Jason_Arthur & @Just_RichardB met in a pub.

None of them could've dreamed the heights that #FFS scaled from it's humble beginnings.
Our mission was simple - to mobilise the talents and passions of young people from all backgrounds, across the UK - to hold the Government to account and deliver a #FinalSay Referendum.

Ultimately, we weren't successful - but we're so proud of everything our activists achieved:
🔥 Mobilising thousands of young people to take political action.

📺Getting hundreds of diverse & under-represented voices heard in our media.

📢 Influencing every opposition political party and leading politicians to support a #FinalSay

#FTR: For the millionth time, the Supreme Court has NO ROLE in impeachment in the House.

The courts CANNOT block impeachment, as the Framers intended.
#FFS: He really, really, REALLY needs to read the Constitution...

#FTR: This news was announced on a Friday night to bury it...so they can continue to allege criminality without evidence.
#REMEMBER: As many as 130 OFFICIALS were questioned by Trump's State Dept. in their newest probe of Hillary Clinton's emails.

Numerous investigations and wasted tax dollars later...once again, NO DELIBERATE mishandling of classified information was found.
washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
#FFS: And sadly, the media is playing right into Trump and the GOP's hands.

It was not covered on ANY of the 5 major Sunday shows...despite the fact that Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned on 4 of them.

And...Sec. of State Pompeo even appeared on one.

#FTR: Trump is suggesting that Puerto Rico is a burden on the United States...because it finds itself in the path of another storm.

It's also worth noting that Dorian will likely side-swipe Puerto Rico, and directly hit Florida...which he interestingly doesn't see as a burden.
#FACTCHECK: Yet again, Trump claims Puerto Rico has received over $90 Billion in disaster aid.

That's a LIE.

That's the estimated total they'll need to fully recover.

Congress has allocated $42.5 Billion.

ONLY $14 Billion has actually been distributed.
nbcnews.com/politics/donal…
#PREVIOUSLY: Trump has a long history opposing disaster aid to Puerto Rico.

Then taking credit when he had to give in...

Just disgusting.

Trump is trying to suggest that the protestors in Hong Kong who are fighting for Democracy...are protesting b/c of the economic impacts of his Trade War.

The President of the United States should be championing Democracy.

But he makes everything about himself.
Seriously?!

The President of the United States should warn China AGAINST taking military acton in Hong Kong.

He should champion Democracy, condemn human rights abuses, and immediately convene the U.N. National Security Council, etc.

But instead, Trump says: "be calm and safe!"
#FFS: Trump just passively retweets a video showing DOZENS of Military Vehicles lined-up just across the Hong Kong border.

China is about to invade Hong Kong. It might go further than simply quiet dissent. It may seize Hong Kong permanently.

Trump acts like a passive spectator.

Those out of the loop. I can't say if any of this is 100% true, use ur head, make ur own decision. @Option_Snipper was allegedly outed as a teacher. Not a pro XX year trader as claimed. He shutdown his service the same day for "health issues". Vanishing w/ allegedly +++250k.
Now we have an account @Option_sizzle which is suspiciously similar to @option_snipper and started a few days after @option_snipper left for "health reasons". Weird that he had to go for health issues but is still posting just as much, if that is him.
For a long time he claimed HUGE GAINS and continually nailed the top and bottom of each trade. I posted a few times that it was literally impossible based on how many contracts he was trading. There wasn't enough volume there. Example below.

#REDFLAG: The case to KILL the #ACA by the Trump Administration and 20 Republican AGs will proceed on 7/9.

Oral arguments will be heard by a panel in the 5th Circuit.

In Dec, a judge in TX ruled that the ACA is now unconstitutional (b/c the GOP repealed the individual mandate).
#REDFLAG: The Trump DOJ is now arguing that Congress and Dem State AGs CAN'T DEFEND the #ACA in court.

After refusing to defend the #ACA as 20 Republican AGs try to kill it...the Trump Administration is trying to block Democrats from defending it instead.
#FFS: One on the arguments Trump's DOJ is using to block Dem State AGs from defending the ACA...

...is by claiming that even if it's struck down in the red states suing, doesn't mean that it'd be struck down nationwide.

That's not how FEDERAL laws work.

#PASTBLAST: The conflict with Iran is entirely of Trump's own making.

War with Iran has always been the end goal.
#PASTBLAST: I warned over a year ago that pulling out of the #IranNuclearDeal would be the WORST mistake made by the Trump Administration.

I said it would "set off a chain of events that we'll be dealing with FOR DECADES TO COME."

I still stand by it.

#PASTBLAST: John Bolton's solution to preventing Iran from building a nuclear bomb...

...is not a diplomatic agreement, like the Iran Nuclear Deal...

It's to "BOMB IRAN."

Cycling in London, a thread:
So this morning cycling to class I had one person undertake the main traffic to come into the bus lane where I was cycling, drive about an inch from me at 40mph to turn left in front of me. BMW driver, you sir, are a ******.
I had at least two white van drivers drive close to me, when they didn’t need to, at speed simply to intimidate me.
I had numerous cars driving dangerously and erratically, trying to overtake me on island crossings, closing space when I need to cycle around parked cars and generally being aggressive and impatient.

Hi everyone,

As well as PM voting against Welsh Assembly in 97 (after a ref passed to create one with slim majority), and was part of Shadow Cab which argued putting it to another vote in 2005 Con Manifesto, we thought you'd like to know what Brexiters said during debate...
. @OwenPaterson said during those debates:

"...the referendum was a fiddle. It is outrageous that a move that will irrevocably alter the United Kingdom's constitution should be pushed through without consulting 85 per cent. of the population."
#PeoplesVote

Whilst @bernardjenkin accused the Government (who were enacting results of a slim majority referendum) that they were:

"Using the sort of democratic logic of which Saddam Hussein would be proud, the right hon. Gentleman would cheerfully claim a yet bigger mandate for his plans"

Hi #CPC18, I’ve got a few thoughts for you.
All this shenaniganary about the border in NI is a wee tad confusing, so let’s chat.
As the Conservative *& Unionist* Party, you must understand the damage your doing to the Union with Brexit.

No form of Brexit is good for the NI situation. Brexit, in every form, puts the Union at risk. #CPC18
But then again, not much was thought of those outside Britain, was there? That’s why you called it British-Exit, instead of UK-Exit. (NI is part of the UK, but not a part of Britain.)
Basically words matter, & the semantics of this tell us you don’t care. But I digress.
