🧵1/I have done an analysis of those responding to #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe's interview, specifically focusing on those calling her an 'ungrateful cow' for not showing enough deference or gratitude to the UK government. The Brexit partisanship on the topic is startling. Read on!

People are criticising Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe for being “ungrateful”. Be under no illusion, it’s rooted in racist (PoC should be grateful to Britain and never criticise) & misogynistic (women should shut up and be nice) stereotypes. She has every right to publicly…1/2
..voice her feelings on her incarceration, disagree with her husband and criticise of the British Govt. Her freedom to do so - without fear - is what distinguishes us from Iran. #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe 2/2
@TulipSiddiq and #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe are receiving the equivalent of a public stoning on Twitter for not abiding by social rules set by racists and misogynists (see previous tweet). Britain is not Iran. STOP IT NOW.

Thread on controversy re #NazaninZaghariRatcliffe debate at @Europarl_EN : Do you think the EU should have a foreign policy as though a nation state? In the context of talk of an EU army & Empire? Me neither. 1/7

It's #WorldKindnessDay
@nickynoo007 made the brilliant suggestion to #KillBrexitWithKindness
Here's my *stab*: thank you #Brexit for honing my power point skills. In gratitude, I'm posting my top-20 most popular anti-#Brexit/#StopBrexit memes (in no particular order).
1. One of the more recent ones on @DavidDavisMP hypocrisy over his failure to release the Brexit Impact Reports or sector studies or whatever they are, which he testified existed in "excruciating detail"
Release the #BrexitImpactReports #StopBrexit #revokeA50forthwith #FBPE
