I could go into the middle of my city and be one of those annoying shouty people but it's not a good look and I would rather annoy people on here. So lets make it loud and clear:
#BorisJohnson #Raad #Patel #Gove and the rest of the neoliberal Conservative Party hold you, 1
The british people in contempt. They want you to fight and another, engage in petty identity politics over #brexit whilst they rob you and make life worse for not only you and the next generation. They dont care about racism and #antisemitism, their ease at blowing the latter 2
Out of proportion in order to hinder Labour, demonstrates they are no friends to jewish people (The fact that the supposedly progressive Libdems, engage in these smears is revealing as well). With neoliberalism, we are all expendable in name of unethical and elitist capitalism. 3

A thread #PritiPatel

1. There are a lot of odious individuals populating the media at the moment and as they cannibalise the dead and rise high above the misery of their foundations it is only right the some of these people acknowledge that we are not happy with the bullshit.
2. Formerly employed by the PR firm Shandwick, she worked for British American Tobacco (BAT) notorious for funding the brutal Burmese dictatorship in the early 2000s and exploiting child labour in Nigeria.
3. In 2013, Priti voted against same-sex marriage in England and Wales• She voted against banning the detention of pregnant women.• Supporter of the death penalty, telling BBC Question Time in 2011 that it would “deter crime”. She later backtracked on these comments in 2016.

Every son & 'daughter of immigrants' needs lectures, @patel4witham On history, on the realities of the British Empire, on how Asians were used in Africa to provide a buffer between black & white, about xenophobia & chauvinism in their own communities, on their caste positions..
on the story of their own coming here not as 'the brightest and the best' but because of compelling historical forces that left them with no choice, on how they've benefited from immigration themselves, on how the 'British' greatness they are used to extol isn't the whole story
V mportant to to note that some sons and 'daughters of immigrants', much like you, #PritiPatel not only shamelessly aid & enforce white British racism & its falsities but also support vicious caste- & community chauvinism, Hindutva back in India, materially & ideologically.

Since Home Secretary @patel4witham recently tried to deny that she's in favour of the #deathpenalty & the US Govt has announced it's bringing back federal death penalty, I've been thinking about the women in my book Women and the Gallows 1797 to 1837 THREAD 1/n
Also every time I watch A Handmaid's Tale, I think of the mass hangings in the #18thc, where up to 20 people were dispatched in one go. Also the grim accidents at hangings where the rope snapped or people watching were killed in the crush. But most of all, I think of.. 2/n
Eliza Fenning, accused of attempting to murder a family by poisoning dumplings. No one died. Almost certainly innocent (I only qualify it bc there is no way to be ABSOLUTELY sure). She had a deeply unfair trial heard by a judge determined to kill her. She was shown no mercy. 3/n
