@WellsEternity I worked in a #ResearchEstablishment from 1978 - 1985. I thought it sinister that nearly all our #funding came from #TheMinistryOfDefence (we were part of a #plc)

It would seem things are #ABloodyLotMoreSinister #today!

The #MOD only attacked #ForeignNationals!
@WellsEternity These bastards (#BillGates, #DrAnthonyFauci, #ChrisWhitty {& possibly #KlausSchwab}) are #attacking #everybody!

That is: They're #AttackingEverybody who is not one of their #InnerCircle*.

* They are such #Psychopaths, they probably #attack each other too!

A donkey was tied to a tree. One night a ghost cut the rope & released the donkey free.

The donkey went & destroyed the crops in an adjacent farmer's land. Infuriated, the farmer's wife shot the donkey and killed it.
The donkey's owner was devastated at the loss. In reply, he killed the farmer's wife.

Angered by his wife's death, the farmer took a sickle and killed the donkey's owner.

The wife of the donkey's owner got so angry that she & her sons set the farmer's house on fire.
The farmer, looking at his house turned into ashes, killed the wife and children of the donkey's owner.

Finally, when the farmer was full of regret, he asked the ghost as to why did it kill them all?

Just caught up with the full Rwanda announcement. Full of ill-thought through contradictions, no workable detail and so unethical, never mind very vulnerable to legal challenge, the latter may well be the point. Blame the foreigners, blame lawyers, blame the law, leave the ECHR…
Incredibly depressing, if now predictable, to see the govt cynically treating law & lawyers upholding the law, (domestic & international) & the rights of vulnerable people, as fair political game, again.

A deliberate unravelling of confidence in those that hold them to account.
Imagine if Johnson had described this country’s “formidable army of lawyers” as a credit to the country he boasts is world-leading, essential to its strong rule of law traditions, acting in their client’s best interests before a confident, independent judiciary…imagine that.

Britain will not be able to sanction Roman Abramovich and other oligarchs for “weeks and months” because the government has been unable to build a case against them

thetimes.co.uk/article/buildi…
The Foreign Office and National Crime Agency have been unable to prove that there are “reasonable grounds” for designating the UK’s most prominent oligarchs for sanctions because they have struggled to link their finances to the Putin regime
Liz Truss, the foreign secretary, wants to sanction Abramovich but has been left frustrated after being told that the government has been unable to build up a case against him and others

The Govt's draconian Police, Crime, Sentencing & Courts Bill is authoritarian, antidemocratic, anti-free speech, & anti-British.

It is an insult to all the brave people who gave their lives in WWII to protect our freedoms.

It MUST be resisted.

#KillTheBill #PoliceBill
Former Director of Policy for PM David Cameron, Camilla Cavendish, today stated that Britain is "sleepwalking into a police state."

She said that MPs claiming facemasks "is an imposition on civil liberties, have waved through these provisions" effectively criminalising protest.
Since the 296 page #PoliceBill passed through the House of Commons, Priti Patel has brought in an ADDITIONAL 18 pages at the last second (effectively an additional Bill) which has had ZERO scrutiny from MPs, & which bring in further draconian provisions.
