1. #Norway has been instrumental in promoting the YP internationally. Undoubtedly this has encouraged other Nordic states to adopt the YP into their policies/legislation.…
2. #Norway has also been a self admitted 'driving force' in successful lobbying of the #UnitedNations and the #CouncilOfEurope to incorporate the concept of 'gender identity' into their human rights policies/frameworks.…

Amazing #Malta is home to a great many slot streamers including seven members of the #ClassyBeef team: Joe, Espen, Nando, Jonte, Georgi, Biggo, and Lamar.… Even though they cannot brag of such a huge number of followers as TrainwrecksTV, their audience is growing constantly, counting nearly 200,0000 fans at the time of writing this article.… ClassyBeef went online in December 2018 and since then, the group of passionate slot players has managed to land plenty of attractive prizes. The latter triggered concerns among some people who suggested the team was playing with “fake” money but these

“In the mid-1960s, I was a young NHS houseman in London specializing in obstetrics. One day I was called to A&E / ER to see a young woman who was bleeding...”

@Newsweek piece by retired doctor on how things were when abortion was illegal in the UK.
#AbortionBan #Texas #SanMarino
On Sunday, #SanMarino joined 50+ countries that have improved access to abortion in the past 25 years

It was decriminalised in South Korea (2021), Argentina (2020), Ireland (2019)

But other places - e.g. #Poland & #Texas - are swimming against the tide.
Women & girls pay a high price for restrictions on abortion. They pay with their health, their well-being & even with their lives

Last January, abortion in #Poland - already only available to women in extreme circumstances - was further restricted.

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

The daily #Coronavirus megathread for Tuesday starts early, from Manchester airport.

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

① The #EUreferendum was undemocratic. Many people directly affected were denied a vote.

Citizens living in the UK from over 70 nations could vote in the EU referendum, but most citizens living here from the rest of the #EU could not.
② Including Britain, 55 countries across the world are members of the #Commonwealth, and all citizens from those countries resident with ‘leave-to-remain’ in the UK were granted a vote the #EUreferendum.

They included citizens living here from Australia, Canada, Ghana, India..
③ Just two #EU countries are members of the #Commonwealth, #Malta and #Cyprus, and citizens from those countries resident in the UK were able to vote in the #EUreferendum.

Välimeren alueella EU jäsenvaltioilla ja EU-johtoisilla toimijoilla on aivan riittävästi kalustoa pelastamaan vaarassa olevia.
Se, ettei EU eivätkä jäsenvaltiot pelasta hädässä olevia on häpeällistä ja EU arvojen vastaista.

#EU #politiikka #pakolaisuus @EU_Commission
Is it so that France simply doesn’t have capability to act in the Mediterranean, @EmmanuelMacron ? No ships, at least no seaworthy ones, can’t do anything? Yeah, I know, times are hard and you can’t expect a nation like France to maintain operational capacity on seas.
Italiaa ei voi edes trollata, ei löydy Twitteristä #Draghi eikä muutakaan.
Ei kai se mikään ihmekään ole, Rooma kaatui jo aikaa sitten eikä siellä sen jälkeen ole tainnut juuri hallintoa olla.

"According to federal health officials, 99.5% of deaths from Covid-19 are now among the unvaccinated. That is a real testament to the power of the vaccines."…

I'd say it's a real testament to the power of propaganda.
“The takeaway message remains, if you’re vaccinated, you are protected. You are not going to end up with severe disease, hospitalization or death.”—@celinegounder…

"You cannot prove a vague theory wrong" —Richard Feynman Image
-75% of Covid infections are in vaccinated people.
-75% of the population is vaccinated.
-The vaccines were claimed to have 94%-95% efficacy.

I guess that's just how math works? 🤔

Anyway, obviously #VaccinesWork! 🤪

Breaking: EC spokesman signals pushback against #Malta's entry ban on unvaccinated EU citizens.

"It's true member states can put in place restrictions to protect public health. However any such measure that restricts free movement needs to be proportionate & non-discriminatory" Image
"A vaccine certificate cannot be a precondition for the exercise of free movement. This is 1 of the main principles of the EU digital Covid certificate regulation"

"We have concerns that these measures could discriminate against those persons who are not fully vaccinated" #Malta
A reminder: Just like in US, EU member states cannot close their borders with one another.

Unlike in US, there's exceptions for emergencies but they must be justifiable. Idea of certificate (vax, PCR test & antibodies) was once available these closures are no longer acceptable.

#Malta's decision to start banning all unvaccinated travellers (even EU citizens) violates the spirit, if not the letter, of EU travel pass legislation.

Will the EC say such suspensions of Schengen free movement are no longer justifiable because the certificate is now available?
#DeltaVariant cases in key 🇪🇺 countries - 🇵🇹🇪🇸🇨🇾🇲🇹 among them - are rising rapidly following 🇬🇧 rise.

But tourism industry is warning governments not to overreact. Hospitalisations and deaths are not rising at anywhere near the same pace, because most Europeans are vaccinated. ImageImageImage
The charts showing the rapid rise in Covid cases in Europe as the #DeltaVariant spreads are legitimately alarming.

The big question is whether Europe's high rate of vaccination (the highest of any continent) will protect against hospitalisations and deaths even as cases rise.

❔ Please help us out - can you see any requirement to enter #Britain with #COVID19 testing or vaccination🤷‍♂️

After ferocious blowback in Austria, the government has this morning backtracked on its refusal to sign yesterday's statement condemning Hungary's anti-LGBT law.

(In fact that brings total signatories to 15, Italian government also changed its mind last night)
And now Greece as well.

All eyes on Cyprus and Malta.…
Here is the updated map of which EU countries have signed the statement condemning #Hungary's anti-LGBT law and asking the Commission to take legal action against Budapest to stop it.

Thanks to @LordsEUCom for inviting me to present oral evidence today alongside @Suewilson91 @BremainInSpain and Jane Golding @BritishInEurope - good opportunity to reflect on #citizensrights and #britsinEU drawing on the research for @BrExpatsEU. A few takeaways from me to follow
First up why the statistics about how many #britsinEU are limited and why this matters in context of 30 June deadline for applications for new residence status in #france #thenetherlands #latvia #luxembourg #malta - see my #thread from earlier⬇️⬇️⬇️
We talked a lot about hidden and vulnerable #britsinEU - homeless, children in care, disabled and elderly populations - who might fall between the cracks of the provisions and how more support needs to be put in place 2/

Doing my prep for @LordsEUCom I have been revisiting the question of how many #BritsinEU there are and why this matters for #citizensrights and #Withdrawalagreement. Just a recap, there are significant limitations to statistics about this population 1/…
These are the baseline for considering the progress of different EU member states in making sure that #britsinEU are registered for their new residence rights used in the joint UK-EC reports from the Specialised Committee on citizens' rights 2/… Image
This is particularly important when it comes to countries operating a #constitutivesystem including #france which hosts the second largest population of #britsinEU. The official statistics about #britsinfrance are likely a considerable underestimate 3/… Image
