By the 2024 election #TonyBlair will be the only person to have won an election for @UKLabour in half a century.

If you don’t think his 10 year term and record below merit a knighthood when the Lords is stuffed full of Tory donors, Claire Fox & and Ian Botham, I can’t help you.
This doesn't even include additional achievements like the 2008 Climate Change Act.
“But Blair and Brown were just Tory-lite!”

Er, bollocks.

Séisme mondial.
35 chefs d’État & 130 milliardaires (Tony Blair, DSK, rock-stars etc) épinglés dans les #PandoraPapers pour avoir placé des milliers de milliards de $ à l’abri dans les paradis fiscaux : ils volent l'Etat et font sécession pour satisfaire leurs intérêts privés

Et désormais les #PandoraPapers : en moins de 10 ans, ces affaires illustrent combien le système financier international permet et encourage la criminalité en col blanc, en toute impunité.
En pratiquant l'#EvasionFiscale à grande échelle, chefs d'Etat, milliardaires, stars du showbiz piétinent l'intérêt général : ces milliards d'euros détournés sont autant de crèches, d'écoles, d'hôpitaux qui ne sont pas construits, et de politiques climatiques non menées.

2/. “The tax system is a haven of scams, perks, City deals and profits" (#TonyBlair 1994)

The #PandoraPapers reveal the Blair’s bought an offshore firm that owned the £6.5m house they were buying so did not have to pay £312,000 in stamp duty @BBCPanorama…
3/. The #PandoraPapers expose offshore accounts of world leaders, billionaires, oligarchs & criminals

It should lead to a crackdown on tax loopholes & money laundering...but we’ve been here before

What was the impact of #PanamaPapers & #ParadisePapers?

In 2005, I wrote a piece in a now defunct publication, arguing that those who believed that the invasion & occupation of #Iraq & #Afghanistan had been ‘an disaster’ were misunderstanding the thinking of those who took us to war

For them it was a success.…

I tweeted this almost a year ago & had since forgotten about it, but is worth retweeting, since it goes to the heart of what is rotten, not just in the state of Denmark, but in ALL states.

It is by demonising, manipulating & exploiting human tribalism that society's elites rule.
Why do the academics we look to as authorities on understanding society, the state & civilisation fail to recognise this?

Academics are privileged clients and employees of the state. That’s why.

It is of existential importance that academics themselves recognise this.
Who are these elites?

First & foremost, academics & those who passed through their hands at university & now have high-status & influential positions in society. To name just one of countless examples: #DavidAaronovitch, an eminent journalist who works for @thetimes & #TheBBC.

If we were living 400 years ago, in the year 1621, it would be obvious to virtually all of us that the world was stationary at the centre of the universe, & that those who argued for the Copernican, heliocentric, world view were nutters.
Not just because religious/academic authority supported this view but because of common sense: you only had to observe the heavens for confirmation. If the Earth moved, we would surely notice it. And to suggest it was a wandering star, like Venus or Mars, was blatantly absurd.
Now, 400 years later, with academic & even religious authority teaching us that the heliocentric view was correct after all, we all believe it, despite continuing to contradict common sense.

‘Profit, profit, profit’—how Tony Blair helped destroy our capacity to test for coronavirus. Why has Britain tested so few people for coronavirus?

The answer may lie in the breakup of hospital pathology departments under plans developed by Tony Blair.…
The most scandalous case involved a Serco subsidiary called Viapath. It was contracted to run tests for Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals in south London. #StarmerOut
And in 2014 Viapath was found to have overcharged the NHS by millions of pounds. The exact scale of the over-charging is not known because a full audit has never been conducted. #StarmerOut

''That's the standard technique of privatisation: Defund, make sure things don't work, people get angry, you hand it over to private capital.'' Noam Chomsky #AcademySchools #PFI #TeamStarmer #TonyBlair #LabourProgress #StarmerOut #OwenSmith #PfizerInvestors #BICOM #BREXIT

BICOM's David Garrard, who is set to rejoin Labour and will meet with David Evans, still runs Academy schools. In 2014, Garrard donated £500,000 to the Labour party, one of the largest private donations under Ed Miliband's leadership.

I think #DavidAttenborough, on behalf of his whole generation, owes #GretaThunberg & her generation an abject apology for having failed to instigate a #SustainabilityRevolution, the existential need for which has been apparent to many of us since the early 1970s.
I apologise for my own boomer generation, but it would be better coming from more influential individuals like #BillClinton, #BillGates & #TonyBlair. Only, they don't recognise the failure, or their co-responsibility for it, since that would tarnish their self-image.
These men & thousands like them, & a smaller number of women, who profited greatly from our unsustainable global economy, will almost certainly die in denial of their failings, as many, like #MargretThatcher & #HelmutSchmidt have already done.

#Hilo🧵 #DonaldTrump fue postulado al #NobeldelaPaz por su apoyo al acuerdo entre Israel y los Emiratos Árabes Unidos, en una historia disparatada, pero no tanto cuando resulta que dictadores y políticos corruptos también fueron postulados.

Aquí un recuento de ellos. ⬇️ ⬇️ Image
😅En 1939, el parlamentario sueco Erik Brandt, un conocido antifacista, se le ocurrió postular a #AdolfHitler al premio. En la carta de postulación, plagada de sarcasmo, describió el amor de Hitler por la paz. Obvio fue descartada, pero quedó constancia del registro. Image
👀Otro despropósito ocurrió en 1935. Un grupo de académicos alemanes no tuvieron empacho en afirmar que el mejor candidato para el Nobel de la Paz era #BenitoMussolini que ya gobernaba a Italia con mano dura y se aprestaba a invadir Etiopía. Image

Britain's political elite is dominated by psychopathic minions of #BigBrother, who deny & despise the natural racial & ethnic foundations of genuine nationhood.

It is natural & healthy to identify with & favour one's own kin/race, which BB insists is discriminatory & RACIST.
Because the Nazis took ethno-nationalism to criminally insane extremes, western academia (which included many traumatised Jews) went to the opposite but equally insane extreme of denying the natural racial & ethnic foundations of nationhood altogether.
This extreme overreaction (rooted in Jewish trauma at the hands of the Nazis) was weaponise by #BigBrother & his minions as an instrument of socio-political intimidation & control, which now dominates the West.

Why have good intentions so consistently paved the way to hell?
1) A lack of understanding of evolved human nature & of how it is perverted & corrupted by civilisation itself.

2) Good intentions attract those seeking to exploit the moral authority & high social status associated with them for personal advantage. People like #JustinTrudeau.
In place of Justin Trudeau, I might have named #TonyBlair or #BillClinton.

I don't like judging individuals I barely know, but "liberal" politicians always rise to power by deceitfully posing as moral authorities, which I feel sure the three I have named did.

I hate to make political points of a tragedy like #LondonBridge but since the #Conservative party are lying through their teeth trying to blame #Labour its time to remind people of Tory complicity & responsibility for blow back terrorism. Here’s a brief thread. Pls RT #Marr etc
1. Back in 2011 David Cameron was PM & Theresa May Home Sec: UK Gov was actively seeking to topple Gaddafi using scaremongering like “massacre about to happen”. UK along with usual invaders France & US started illegally bombing #Libya : foreign jihadi fighters were needed
2. Salman Abedi ( #Manchester bomber) & his father were members of a Libyan dissident group – the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) – covertly supported by the UK to assassinate Qadafi in 1996. At this time, the LIFG was an affiliate of Osama Bin Laden’s #alqaeda . #Marr
