Was this #dogwalker a #whitewoman by any chance?

Because for the life of me, I do not get how all can ignore what happened to #myson #AmbroseGGBall in 8 solid years unless it was @MPSHaringey posting up all the wrong information, wrong days and dates,
the wrong locations, wrong description of clothing , the wrong Fox pub, all different times of the night, leaving out the vital information leading up to during and after my son went @missingpeople, did not response for 56 hours after all the calls myself and others had made over

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu (née Pierrepont) - Aged 7, members of the newly formed Kit-Cat Club, a group of fashionable men, nominated her as the subject of their toast to the beauty of the season, and they had her name engraved on the glass goblet used for this purpose Image
"Mary is also known for introducing and advocating for smallpox inoculation to Britain after her return from Turkey"…
"She was the eldest child of Evelyn Pierrepont, 1st Duke of Kingston-upon-Hull, and his first wife Mary Feilding , the only daughter of the third Earl of Denbigh

Mary's brother - Basil Feilding, 4th Earl of Denbigh"…

Just *fuck* these moronic, divisive, shit-stirring populist nationalist anti-humanity charlatans.

They've already spent years trying to turn Britain into a polarised hateful shithole on behalf of a right-libertarian billionaire elite who do not give a shit about British people. Image
Thankfully, not many people have heard of Dominique Taegon (now Dominique Samuels).

She was "a young influencer" for the dangerously irresponsible hard-right propaganda outfit Turning Point UK, which was supported by the likes of Paul Joseph Watson, Nigel Farage, & Priti Patel.
Here she is with Charlie Kirk, who launched TPUK, who has falsely claimed humans have no significant effect on global climate change & promotes the antisemitic conspiracy theory of Cultural Marxism which inspired far-right terrorist Anders Breivik, & conspiracy nut Candace Owens.

Remember. Reflect. Unite. 💚

Three years since the #GrenfellTower tragedy, victims still don’t have answers with a gov inquiry on hold due to #COVID19.

Meanwhile, thousands of people still live in unsafe homes & their mental health is suffering.
In the wake of the fire, our GP volunteers helped Grenfell survivors get back on their feet.

They found undocumented migrants & asylum seekers living at Grenfell were too scared to seek help for fear of being reported to the @ukhomeoffice 🤐 Image
This is still a problem today.

Our report #AnUnsafeDistance shows fear & distrust of authorities is preventing migrants, asylum seekers & other excluded groups from accessing healthcare during COVID-19.

We must put an end to this #HostileEnvironment. ✊

On the 14th June 2017, 72 people died in #Grenfell Tower.

3 years on and their families still don't have the full story, nor has anyone been held responsible for the death of their loved ones.

It's time for #JusticeForGrenfell 💚

I hate the way the way the fire brigade are made partly culpable in the #GrenfellTower fire. I lived 30 yards from that tower 3/4 of my life and saw fires before. Stay put was an effective way of keeping others safe as the buildings were so concrete fires would burn out...
I assume like everyone. The fire brigade believed that cladding added by these greedy cowboys and the higher-ups that approved it, would make the building safer as well as "prettier" for the lux apartments being built in the area. Not that it would turn it into a fireball.
Show me where any of those people told the fire brigade, that they had added a fire accelerator to the building to save money and the stay put advice that had been there 30+ years should change. Show me. You've done a report that cost how much to tell us what we already knew?

Today is possibly .@theresa_may's last day as PM, if .@BorisJohnson can command a majority (which is in some doubt...)

So it's a great opportunity to look back at some of the *highlights* of Mrs May's premiership in memes👇
13 JUL 2016: May was appointed as PM and named her Cabinet shortly thereafter, surprising many by giving 3 of the top #Brexit-related jobs to arch-brexiters Boris Johnson, David Davis & Liam Fox. Sheer folly, or genius in making them own what they'd sold? Sadly, the former😢
5 OCT 2016: With such a narrow result, the country could be forgiven for expecting May to propose a consensual solution, as Norway PM Erna Solberg had done in a similar situation. Most Remainers would've accepted #Norway.

May's #CitizensOfNowhere speech crushed all hope.

Thoughts are with everyone who lost their lives in the Grenfell fire on this day a year ago today. An unthinkable tragedy that should never have been allowed to happen. RIP #GrenfellTower Image
At this point a year ago, the tower was still burning.. People on the ground will have been coming to the agonising realisation that their friends and loved ones inside - many of whom had been screaming for their lives - were gone. Can’t get this out of my head #GrenfellTower Image
Now scores of survivors, still suffering from a tramatuic experience most of us will never have to endure, are still displaced and without a home. 72 households are in hotels. Meanwhile, more than 200 council-owned houses lie empty… It begs the question: Image
