#BrexitDeal for the perplexed

I joined @BloombergRadio to talk about one of the biggest weekends in British politics for a long while ....

Listen here

@BloombergRadio I'm more than happy to be wrong, as book eaters will testify, but as I say my instinct is still that deal narrowly fails. That said, Johnson has v good chance & either way emerges from this w'end in stronger position. You could say it's on knife-edge, a 52-48 scenario ...
@BloombergRadio *classic hedging

Is this our first thread? Far from it, and we somehow doubt that this group of accounts repetitively posing the question "is this my first tweet [insert number here] ?" is anyone's first rodeo either.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We downloaded tweets containing the phrase "is this my first tweet" and filtered the results to replies where the entire tweet consists of this phrase immediately followed by a number and a question mark, yielding 10160 tweets from 5430 accounts.
@ZellaQuixote All 5430 accounts were created between October 13th and October 17th, and the pace is increasing. The accounts generally tweet their first "is this my first tweet [number] ?" tweet within 10 minutes of creation, which is why the creation date and tweet volume charts look similar.

For 2 days I've been hearing that Giuliani is under investigation by SDNY for breaking lobbying laws and other things in Ukraine.
Now, the New York Times is confirming it.
Rudy is done.

2-This is breaking so will be updated, but : "WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani broke lobbying laws in his dealings in Ukraine, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.
3-"The investigators are examining Mr. Giuliani’s efforts to undermine the American ambassador to Ukraine, Marie L. Yovanovitch, one of the people said. She was recalled in the spring as part of Mr. Trump’s broader campaign to pressure Ukraine into helping his political prospects

In her testimony today, Marie Yovanovich told Congress, “Contacts of Mr. Giuliani may well have believed that their personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-corruption policy in Ukraine,” She has a lot to say-NOT good for RG/DT. #FridayFeeling washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
If you can't read this article bc of paywall issues, look on my home page for a pinned tweet @ how to get past it. This is an important piece.

Fiona Hill, Trump's former top Russia aide, will testify on 10/16. Word is she plans to say that Giuliani & Sondland side-stepped State Dept protocol re Ukraine & she may know what's up with the Helsinki mtg w Putin-she was there. #FridayFeeling nbcnews.com/politics/donal…
2-"Hill’s appearance next week before Congress has stoked fear among people close to the president, said a former senior White House official, given her central role overseeing Russia and Ukraine policy throughout most of the Trump administration.
3-"Her plans to testify also pose a key test for whether congressional committees pursuing an impeachment inquiry can obtain testimony from other former officials who have left the administration,

How many of you feel that you're just shutting down? I write @ politics for a living & have a thick skin, but I have to say that regardless of all of this incredible, constantly breaking news (2nd Intel WB?!?!?) I'm tired & angry but not much more..Anyone? #FridayFeeling #Impeach
I'm not talking about depression or giving up, not by any means. I am disturbed that Trump's deliberate overload is getting to me, numbing me, and I sincerely want to know how many others are feeling it. There may be a real story in this, and it matters.
Thank you all for the wonderful, kind, informative responses.
I think that collectively we have a great deal of hope, we are tenacious, we are strong. And I believe that it is critical for us to stick together..
@HillaryClinton wasn't wrong, we ARE Stronger Together.

Breaking: 3 Dem Committee Chairs have sent a letter to VP Pence requesting documents related to the Ukraine for the on-going Impeachment Inquiry. If he refuses this will probably lead to a subpoena of the Vice-President.
Don't have the press rel yet #FridayFeeling
Here is the letter that Chairmen Engel, Schiff and Cummings sent to VP Pence this afternoon, requesting that his office provide Congress with documents related to the Ukraine. If he hedges this will turn into an historic subpoena. #FridayFeeling oversight.house.gov/sites/democrat…
Rachel Maddow just told @NicolleDWallace that as of today, the Impeachment Inquiry IS extended to VP Mike Pence, & that it's arguable that the non-prosecution mentioned in the OLC memo for President will extend to the office of the VP. He could be prosecuted for his role in this.

I guess Trump doesn't feel he can ask Iran for oppo (bc, you know--WAR), but here's Microsoft saying that Iranian hackers targeted at least one (unnamed) Pres Campaign, emails of American journos, & current & former US gov't officials. #FridayFeeling nytimes.com/2019/10/04/tec…

Time for a pulp countdown now, and as it's #WorldAnimalDay I'm counting down my top 10 animals in horror novels! #FridayFeeling
At no 10: cats! Pretty evil in general, but can be easily defeated with a laser pointer.
At no 9: wasps! They only attack you if you're standing near a jam sandwich, but who doesn't nowadays? Best to take care.

Evan McMullen just pointed out that bc Trump has such great crim liability if he's not reelected he's going to be willing to do more & more illegal, immoral, egregious stuff to keep the Pres-he's got a lot to lose by losing the election.
It may get a lot worse. #FridayFeeling
And now we find out that Rudy Giuliani has said that Pompeo's State Department helped arrange his meeting with a Ukrainian official-in which he tried to obtain oppo research on Hunter Biden.
TOTAL bastardization of the USA by Trump.
Wow. #WhistleblowerGate #FridayFeeling
Amb. Wendy Sherman just said, "Trump expects that we'll all be exhausted by this, that we'll turn away..For the sake of our Country, we must NOT turn away"

For today's #FridayFeeling I head back to the era of censorship, to see how pulp paperbacks tried to support gay and lesbian readers in the 1950s and '60s.

This is the story of Saber Books...
Sanford “Les” Aday wanted to be a writer, but he struggled to get published. So he moved from Oklahoma to Fresno, California and in 1955 set up his own publishing house with three imprints: Fabian, Saber and Vega Books.
All three of Aday's imprints published low-quality erotica: writers were given a flat fee for knocking out a softcover novel, with at least 20% of the book being sex scenes. Sold by mail-order or at news-stands they always ran the risk of breaching obscenity rules.

Today, the Emoluments law suit filed by CREW (Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics) in DC was revived by Fed Appeals Ct in Manhattan, this is a big loss for the Trump admin.-potentially giving us another window into his finances. #FridayFeeling

2-"The Friday ruling revives the case, allowing it — and potential discovery associated with how Trump has profited from foreign government business — to move forward absent any further appeal. In the 2-1 ruling, the appeals court held back from ruling on the merits of the case
3-"The majority did, however, find it “plausible” that “in some significant number of instances, government officials will choose Trump hotels and restaurants in the hope that spending their dollars at Trump establishments will influence the President in their favor in

Today in history: a massive nucleat explosion sends the Moon hurtling into space!

Well that was the premise of #Space1999. Let's take a look at some of the many impossible questions the series threw up... #FridayFeeling
In #Space1999 Moonbase Alpha is a 4km wide settlement in the Plato moon crater. It's both a research centre and a monitoring station for the vast amounts of nuclear waste Earth has dumped on the Moon.

Sounds like fun...
But that's the problem with setting sci-fi on the Moon: nothing tends to happen. Sure there's filing to do, computers to monitor, occasional meteors etc, but where's the action?

There's literally no atmosphere.

SC, NV, AZ & KS will cancel their 2020 GOP Presidential primaries & caucuses, in an attempt to kill the chances of Trump's GOP challengers..this is going to be the GOP's LAST gasp! What a desperate & deeply unconstitutional move! #FridayFeeling politico.com/story/2019/09/…

John Bulmer was a pioneer of British colour photojournalism, and documented the changing face of the North of England in the '60s and '70s.

Let's take a look at some of his work... #FridayFeeling
Bulmer was brought up in Herefordshire, but much of his early photojournalism was in the North - an area undergoing huge change by the start of the 1960s.
In 1965 he was commissioned by the Sunday Times colour magazine to illustrate a long piece by Arthur Hopcraft: "The north is dead, long live the new north."

Trump's personal ass't, Madeleine Westerhout was fired yest after Hogan Gidley threw her under the bus for 'leaking' info @ his family (we don't yet know what) to Press. Gidley was also there & feared being fired himself, so he told on her. #FridayFeeling cnn.com/2019/08/29/pol…

It's Friday. Let's have some fun and get to know our foes in this Rogue Government's Cabinet a little better.

#StopTheCoup
First up, the PM & aspiring dictator, selected by 0.13% of the population, but who hasn't yet faced a GE as PM - something he considered an #AffrontToDemocracy when Gordon Brown took over from Tony Blair.

Johnson: the poster-boy of the #BrexitCoup.

#StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke
Not officially in Cabinet, unelected bureaucrat & grand vizier Dominic Cummings nevertheless sets the agenda, calls the shots & yanks BJ's strings.

Cameron once called him a 'career psychopath'. He is in contempt of parliament & appears to be amoral. #StopTheCoup #BrexitIsNoJoke

OPEN LETTER to @FBI. I have been saying this for 20 years. Nobody listened. Nigeria is a great country. I lived in America close to 30 yrs. My children are American. Youngest @Richkjtmusic is American-Nigerian. We have ETHNIC TRIBES. We are a tribal country #IgboYahooBoys
@FBI It is important you know our ethnic tribes #Igbo #Hausa #Yoruba which represent East, North and West. When we had Nigerian men killing their wives in 2001 they were Igbo names. I covered 6 murder trials. It was a trend. A cultural bad habit. All the police saw was Nigerian
@FBI This list comes after #invictusobi Obiwanne Okeke the Forbes celebrated billionaire was arrested while working in his dark corner of the net. The whole country is in tribal mode. A country that picks ministers and lawmakers via tribe before experience #IgboYahooBoys

#1 A true story of chance, risk & reward, for anyone creating in isolation (or for whom building & sustaining a creative life has few precedents in their family/class/culture)

#2 I've been staying this week with my friend & mentor, the sculptor #DavidNash. He committed to life as an artist in his 20s, making firm & unusual choices towards that. (@Museum_Cardiff has a fine exhibition of his 50 years at Capel Rhiw, Blaenau. At @TownerGallery from Sept).
#3 Likewise, I'd always wanted to be a writer. But coming from a single parent, working class, rural background, I was risk averse. A First in English got me a job in TV, but I soon retreated to a secure admin job. Saved, read thousands of books, made notes. Twenty years passed.
