Peaceful revolution in the UK: some personal thoughts on the need for #SystemChange and the potential for making it happen. [thread] 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove #JohnsonMustGo
In the wake of the #RussiaReport ⬇️ & the ongoing #COVID19 & #ToryCorruption scandals, there has been a noticeable increase in talk about protest against this obviously compromised “government”… 😠✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #revolt #remove
For many, the flagrant corruption of the new “honours” list feels like the last straw. We can let this anger & stress gnaw at us, or we can harness it against these disgraceful crooks… 😖✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove

This is what the Russian Ambassador had to say about wrecking the UK ⬇️😠 How do #Brexit types still think that *they* are the patriots?! 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #RussiaReport #ToryTraitors #ToriesOut #resist @BylineTimes @peterjukes
Here’s Ambassador Yakovenko with beshitted Russian asset “Boris” Johnson. As a brainless narcissist, it’s possible that Johnson is oblivious to Russian aims, but an unaware asset is nonetheless an asset. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #Russia #RussiaReport #treason

Just when I thought my hatred of the @Conservatives was at its peak, I try to book a #COVID home testing kit for my elderly and poorly Dad. He's generally not in the best of health, but we manage. Recently though he's been experiencing symptoms consistent with #coronavirus 1/
The final step, after providing DOB, NI Number, Address and all the other standard ID confirming data, is this...something I thought looked extremely suspect, so I did some digging... 2/
What POSSIBLE reason could there be for the UK government to make it a requirement that you share your data with an American credit reporting agency @TransUnion in order to be able to access vital medical testing support in the middle of a pandemic?

A short thread about resisting the #kleptofascist takeover, with an added last-ditch family appeal. 😐✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #StopFascism #RuleOfLaw
When the execrable Cummings/Johnson regime launched its attack on Parliament back in August, I was horrified: this was in fact a coup against democracy. Like thousands of others, I hit the streets to protest. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #StopTheCoup #resist #JohnsonMustGo #RuleOfLaw
As a historian with Asperger’s & misophonia, the idea of giant crowds is truly horrifying to me, and I’d much rather be quietly writing books in the countryside… 😐✊🌹🇪🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #autism #Aspergers #AutismStrong #resist

Establishment Psychopathy: a selection of evidence setting out some of the ways in which colonial violence & structural racism continue to privilege our “ruling class”... [thread of threads] 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #ColonialViolence #BritishEmpire #ReparationsNow #BlackLivesMatter Image
The magnificent #BlackLivesMatter protests are proof of structural racism around the world... This thread ⬇️ shows how the UK Establishment still benefits from slave money, and why it will ALWAYS resist a proper discussion of #history. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #Slavery #RhodesMustFall
Colonial wrongdoing was often rewarded with wealth and a peerage… Our ludicrous system means that this chap #Trenchard ⬇️ gets to make our laws in part because his grandfather liked to burn villages in #Nigeria. 😧✊🌹🇪🇺🇳🇬 #SystemChange #ToriesOut #COVID19

A thread about Establishment wealth, reparations, & why the Tories will *always* defend the statues of slavers & Empire racists… 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #reparations #ColonialViolence #resist #slavery #BlackLivesMatter
This chap is Richard Drax, Tory MP for South Dorset since 2010. His full name is Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, and he comes from a long line of Tory MPs and other assorted Establishment figures over the centuries. 😋✊🌹🇪🇺 #Drax #ScroogeMcDuck
He owns c14,000 acres of Dorset, making him the largest private landowner in the county. Pic shows his country seat, Charborough House. 🧐 #NiceGaff #Dorset #CountryLife

A thread about Scotland, solidarity against dictatorship, and the connection between Chilean fascism and the disaster of Brexit. 🧐✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱#NaePasaran #StopFascism #Brexit #ToriesOut #solidarity #history
I recently saw the extraordinary film “Nae Pasaran”, a powerful, deeply moving story of Scottish workers standing up to the fascist dictatorship in Chile in the 1970s… 🤓✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱 #NaePasaran #StopFascism #solidarity #Scotland #Chile @debasersfilms @naepasaran
One day in March 1974, an engineer at the Rolls Royce plant in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, noticed that there were Chilean aircraft engines in the production line, waiting to be refurbished. They were from Hawker Hunter jets owned by the Chilean Air Force. 😀✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳 #Scotland

A short thread on whether the honking great bellend @BorisJohnson can reasonably be called “a fascist”… 😖✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #BellendusMaximus #CummingsOut #FatbergOfDishonesty
I have often posted about the creeping fascism ⬇️ in the Cummings/Johnson regime, & attracted much ridicule from unthinking Brexity types. They are keen to avoid inconvenient factual analysis... 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #StopFascism #ToriesOut
Do I therefore think @BorisJohnson is “a fascist”..? No, he’s too uninterested in ideas to maintain any kind of ideology, even a lunatic one… Moreover, literally his only concern in life is *himself*. 😖

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

A short thread on Tory loon Gerald Howarth, former MP for #Aldershot, summarising his comprehensive awfulness. 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 #ToriesOut #ToriesKill #COVID19 #ToryGenocide
Young Gerald showed an early desire to be on the wrong side of history, joining the Conservative Party in 1964 while still a teenager. In that year, the Tories were busy conducting one of the most racist election campaigns ever 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #racism

theguardian.com/world/2014/oct…
In March 1968, while millions of young people around the world protested against US violence in Vietnam, Howarth attended the famous Grosvenor Square demo to protest IN FAVOUR of the war… 😮✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ffs #ToriesOut #Vietnam

A thread about the English Establishment, state psychopathy, #COVID19… and why it really matters how people in power think. 🧐✊🇪🇺🇻🇳#history #ToriesOut #resist 🦠
The popular idea of a colonial official during the British Empire days was of a paternal figure dispensing justice and spreading civilisation, as in the 1935 film “Sanders of the River” (see pic), a grossly patronising tale set in colonial #Nigeria... 😬🇳🇬 #BritishEmpire #Korda
The reality was, of course, very different. Consider the work of Charles Callwell, a British soldier with much colonial experience, pictured here on the WWI Caucasus Front as a Major-General in 1916. #Callwell #SmallWars #ColonialViolence 🇹🇷🇷🇺

A thread about #COVID19, colonial violence, and how the English class system is wrecking the country. 🧐✊🇪🇺#coronavirus #ToriesOut #history #SystemChange #JohnsonMustGo 🦠
This chap is Hugh Trenchard, or “viscount” Trenchard*, a Tory member of the House of the Lords… 🤨🇪🇺 #ToriesOut

*footnote: I don’t recognise titles for living people, having abolished the honours system. I use them for historical personages, for the avoidance of confusion…
Being a reliable Tory footsoldier, naturally Trenchard has offered his “strong support” to Boris Johnson for his handling of the #coronavirus emergency… 😖✊🇪🇺🦠 #resist #liars #COVID19 #ToriesOut #ToryShambles

In this #COVID19 crisis, some worry about having a eugenics nutjob like Cummings in charge... Before rubbishing this as alarmist, please consider Charles Trevelyan, the Treasury official placed in charge of relief during the Irish famine in the1840s. ⬇️😠✊🦠 #ToriesOut 🇪🇺🇮🇪
We tend to assume that our government would *never* consciously do anything to damage its own people... Trevelyan, however, took the psychopathic view that the famine was divine intervention on the feckless poor... ⬇️ 😖✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #history #famine #Ireland #capitalism
This was at a time when - even during the years of famine - Ireland was exporting around 300,000 tons of grain to England per annum. Fully *one million* Irish people are believed to have died due to the famine, and around two million emigrated. 😠✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #resist #ToriesOut

I realise by now you might be bored shitless by politics or think it's a foregone conclusion, but I believe that a Boris Johnson majority government will be a disaster for the UK and there is still time to stop it.
The Times front page headline today "Tory Lead Narrows Ahead of Final Election Rallies" so there is still hope.
YouGov yesterday warned that the margin of error could put the Tory seat total as low as 311, which would mean another hung parliament. So there's still time to stop a majority Johnson government. Here are my 5 reason why you should not vote Tory...

.@MattHancock .@10DowningStreet

Thread: 1/

I was lucky enough to watch #JohnPilger's Documentary 'The Dirty War on The NHS'. Suffice to say, the #NHS is in the FINAL stages of #privatisation. There are FIVE Lobby groups, located within 500 yards of the Dept of Health . .
@MattHancock @10DowningStreet 2/

ALL of these Lobbying groups sole aim, is to get the #NHS privatised. The 2012 Health & Social Care Act, means that the .@MattHancock no longer has a DUTY to provide healthcare for YOU. This means, they are under no obligation to do anything to help you, should you fall ill
@MattHancock @10DowningStreet 3/

The pressure on the NHS is so great, and beds and staff in such short supply, that patients are being 'offloaded' to anyone that will have them (or if they're homeless, back onto the street), BEFORE they're medically fit to be discharged. This happens in the US all the time

1/ Thread... I've decided to spend the day today making charts to remind people of the @Conservatives awful record in government since 2010. Here's the first, on jobs. A decline in wages and a huge increase in zero hours contracts #GE2019 #ToriesOut
@Conservatives 2/ Here's how the @Conservatives have been doing on crime since 2010. Police numbers falling, recorded violent crime incidents rising #GE2019 #ToriesOut

(Nb. the Crime Survey - an alternative measure - shows a pretty flat trend under Tories after sharp decline from 1995-2010)
@Conservatives 3/ Although the @Conservatives have thrown record amounts of cash at the #NHS, the health service has a staffing shortfall of over 100,000 (including over 30,000 nurses), while A&E waiting times have seen a sharp rise #GE2019 #ToriesOut

Wow Jolyon Maugham wants to keep the #ToriesOut by supporting the Green candidate in #Stroud take a look at the 2017 result bit.ly/2LyiXbI Now think about this! Maugham is an advisor for a #Tory Think Tank Bright Blue bit.ly/2roWgQp
Scroll down the list of names and you find Matthew Elliott the Former Chief Executive of Vote Leave! Molly Scott Cato might be a principled person but why support a party that only achieved 2% of the vote? A slight increase in that vote could give #Stroud a #Tory #VoteLabour
Is it possible that a remain supporter who advises a Tory Think Tank is trying to split the vote in #Stroud in favour of a #Tory Is that not a question Journalists should be asking? #VoteLabour #JC4PM2019 @RespectIsVital @shaunjlawson @silverrich39 @threadreaderapp "Unroll"

1/4 The #Tory government has put #disabled & chronically ill people through hell the past 10 years. The reason? To stop fraudulent benefit claims and reduce cost. The outcome? Thousands of us died and thousands more suffered humiliation, #poverty & devastating health implications
2/4 The kick in the teeth is; the benefit reforms and #DWP errors actually cost more than the original fraud. On top of this, the Tory's removed all funding for vital services that many vulnerable people in society relied upon. #ToriesOut #Tories #Health #Benefits
3/4 Austerity measures were supposed to reduce debt and save the UK from financial crisis, yet National #debt is the highest it's ever been. The #NHS is on it's last breath, and many of us fear we will not survive another 4 years of #Tory lies, neglect and abuse. #VoteLabour

@Rknepper_ More footage of the abhorrent Tory candidate for Hastings & Rye, Sally Ann Heart, has emerged. Listen to the audience reaction as she attempts to defend her views on the minimum wage and 'people with learning difficulties.'

@SwapmyVote Alice lives in Town X. She’s always voted for the Red Party, but they can’t win where she lives. If she wants a progressive MP to represent her, she needs to vote Yellow, because they can win. It’s not ideal.
#TacticalVoting #SwapMyVote #StopTheCoup
@SwapmyVote Bob lives in Town Y. He’s a lifelong Yellow Party voter, but they don’t stand a chance in Town Y. The Red Party can potentially win if all progressive voters get behind them though. He’ll vote Red, although he’s not that keen.

24hrs of truth for the despicable Tories, it's leader, and the sycophantic shills who'd do and say anything to retain their ill gotten positions. Even @bbcquestiontime exposing them as having nothing to offer but lies and hatred.

#GE2019 is up for grabs

@bbcquestiontime "You were in government and you cut the bursary."

A midwife of twenty years: "We are literally scraping to try and find enough money to buy basic equipment."

#GE2019 #NHS

@bbcquestiontime An incredible moment on @bbcquestiontime. The truth of the consequences of language.

Perhaps more incredible, and not caught on this clip, @BrandonLewis immediately doubles down on the abhorrent views of Lionel Shriver.
