We’re going to have austerity on the basis of some very dubious accounting for the national debt

/2 The UK’s #nationaldebt is a strange figure. For example, to most people's surprise it includes all our notes and coins, as well as premium bonds. But much more worrying is the fact that a significant part of it is created by what I think to be dubious #Accounting . A thread…
/3 The way the national debt is calculated makes a massive difference when it comes to calculating so-called ‘#fiscalblackhole s’,which are the supposed reason why we need to have #austerity and #tax rises now. But some of the accounting for this debt is dubious to say the least.

Nobody should be remotely surprised that Kwasi Kwarteng is an accomplished liar - it's now an essential attribute for all UK Govt cabinet members.

And who is new Downing St Chief of Staff Mark Fullbrook anyway?

#bbclaurak #ToryCorruption #ToryLiars
Liz Truss’s chief of staff being paid through his lobbying company could reportedly allow him to pay less tax. According to the Sunday Times, Fullbrook is refusing to explain the agreement that lets him direct government strategy without being directly employed by the UK Govt.
Between April & June, Fullbrook’s company contacted the UK Govt on behalf of clients such as the Libyan House of Representatives, which is opposed by the West & the UN, an energy provider, & a PPE firm linked to a fundamentalist Christian sect, according to the Sunday Times.

A thread. 1/ Here’s my prediction for Liz Truss’ tenure as leader of the Conservatives (I’ll not legitimize her role as PM because she wasn’t voted to be so by the country). She won’t last til the next election. The Tories are in real trouble. External world pressures and events
2/ mean they cannot get out of the shit they have created, which has been exacerbated by the Brexit debacle. They have no answer to the cost of living crisis, food and fuel poverty, and the myriad of other issues facing a growing but now significant percentage of the population
3/ It is against their politics to worry about such people. Leveling up is a catchphrase only. To actually do so would demand policies they are just not interested in enacting. If they were they would have done so sometime in the last 12 years - 12 years in which millions of us

A lot of people don't seem to understand what we'd lose if we allow the tory government to scrap the HRA. So I have read it, so you don't have to. Here is a thread of what we'd lose...

#HRA #ToryLiars #ToryCriminalsUnfitToGovern #GetTheToriesOut
1. The Right to Life:
'Everyone's right to life shall be protected by law.'
2. Prohibition of Torture:
'No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhumane or degrading treatment or punishment.'

Tory MPs: 1)#traindrivers are not on strike; 2)the voters created their own #TacticalVoting scheme + executed it because they wanted to spell out just how much they want anything but #ToryLiars; 3) we like our #HumanRights...leave them alone; 4) loyalty to a liar will end careers
5) smashing things up/ defunding, then claim to be fixing stuff is not a sustainable strategy and we see what you're doing.#SaveOurNHS
6) your Twitter bubble may love hideous policies like #RwandaDeportation..the country as a whole does not;7)#foodbanks are not a photo opp but a
source of shame; 8) we aren't stupid...unlike your front bench; 9) we know where levelling up money goes and why...10) not mentioning #Brexit doesn't make it less of a sh*tshow.

Incredible that even when the Tories talk about 'freedoms' its in an abstract sense, they desire to control from the top who benefits from that, lower and middle income earners are anathema to their ideology. Where there are grass roots, Tories prefer 'astro-turf' #ToryLiars
Tories have corrupted the British establishment, their 'wrecking crew' approach serves to erode the public's trust in Govt, a precursor to smaller Govt, why? So their 'freedoms' can be unleashed to curb academic independence, dismantle judiciary and annihilate public spending.
Once Govt policing has been neutralised, corporations will be free to self -regulate, this occurs when dark money is pumped into r/w think tanks who btw declare themselves as non-profit, that funding is also tax deductible. UK is in transition, a clean slate for the libertarians.

The UK Govt are protecting disaster capitalists while allowing them to stealthily undermine the Rule of Law and the welfare state. A now weakened UK is totally exposed to libertarian exploitation when the country should be rebuilding new ways to counter corporate aggression.
Tories working in secret partnership with @iealondon facilitated Brexit with help from the worst of the worst advocates of unleashing free market chaos on stable economies. Dr. Barbara Kolm, Shankar Singham, Grover Norquist and +450 r/w think tanks flush with wads of dark money.
These traitors of democracy are well and truly in place at the highest levels of Govt, influencing policy decisions that will abolish workers rights, cement low taxes on the wealthy 1%, annihilate public spending and enforce privatisation on all public sectors. #Libertarian

🧵Here are Sunak & Shapps, posing for a photo op at the Savoy, with DP World CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem. DP World own P&O.

In 2016, Sunak saw DP World as a huge benefit to the UK. With plans for it to be ‘at the heart of Britain’s trading future’ Claiming it had the ambition
& resource to boost growth, support businesses, create jobs & (get this) IMPROVE LIVING STANDARDS!! DP World, have just laid off 800 UK staff in appalling circumstances & brought in replacement workers on £1.80 an hour. The company owe billions in loans, took £10m in furlough
support & requested a £150m Govt bailout. Sunak has welcomed DP World with open arms. His big push for these ‘freeports’ has been warned about by many for a while. They are Charter Cities. Deregulated economic enterprise zones. Workers rights mean zilch. It’s the Libertarian

@suzanne_moore Thank you very much for writing this, Suzanne. I know this happened to BBC staff, too. ⬇️

Take a look at how Nadine Dorries avoids potential civil action when she seeks to smear someone. 'Bold' is a word, but there are others.

#Dorries is a savage liar.

@suzanne_moore Nadine Dorries is a religious fundamentalist who literally thinks God chose her to be an MP.

Tim Montgomerie's politics are equally antediluvian, and both of them are shameless liars.

#ToryLiars
@suzanne_moore Oh, and I found an archived version of that article written by Nadine Dorries and hosted by Iain Dale. Those two have much history in the dirty tricks & dark propaganda department.
web.archive.org/web/2011091310…

Dorries is of course a massive liar who projects.

Nadine Dorries used to blame me for moments like this #CarCrash.

She literally tried to have me arrested for calling her a liar and I literally have the paperwork to back this up.

#Dorries is a menace. A savage bully who will lie to anyone about anything, just to get her way.
#Dorries was trying to convince @BedsPolice to arrest her 'trolls' & claimed she lived in fear. When told she didn't have evidence of any crime(s) she tweeted what you see below, then threatened to have someone 'arrested for libel'
barthsnotes.com/2012/02/08/nad…

People like Dominic Wightman and Iain Dale then lined up to give misleading if not wholly false testimony about their bad experiences with me, & what followed was a months-long JOKE of an investigation into right-wing talking points about moi.

#PMQs Johnson championing UK vaccine rollout isn't what it seems.
Of 30 million jabs in UK, 13 million Pfizer were imported from EU, 5 million from India and non-trivial amounts from NL. This actually means the UK has only provided 20% of its 68 million population
#ToryLiars
The reason why the EU is also at 20% of vaccinating its citizens is that it gave away a third of its supplies to Mexico, Chile, US and its biggest recipient was the UK.
It makes me bloody sick to hear Johnson twisting the facts and demonizing the EU for flag shagging 'wins'
EU producers also exported another third to its member states. An early decision was taken by EU states that it would be unacceptable for some states to protect their populations while others looked on with empty hands and full hospitals. This is solidarity, ethics built on trust

The news announcing only now that energy prices could double??? I think most people worked that out 6 to 7 weeks ago! So what will this crass government do to soften the blow - drop the NI tax, cut VAT on fuel bills to 0% ? Nope! Pre ref they promised cheaper bills! #ToryLiars
As I said in previous tweets, the average family will be £3500 to £5000 worse off! NI Tax £1500, Energy £800, New 3 year council tax £300 PA average, Rising interest rates, 6% inflation etc etc. #ToryLiars #ToryThieves #CorruptTories
NI tax is £1500 over 3 years per family member in full time employment! and the extra Council tax is over £300 to £500 is over 3 years too. All fits in nicely for the next election!

Excoriating discussion between @tombradby and @PaulBrandITV on @itvnews just now. This is mainstream prime time news, not the allegedly leftie Channel 4. And Stratton was their colleague at ITV once.

Disaster for the Tories. Absolute disaster. #whoattendedtheparty
And @Peston also now demanding a list of #whoattendedtheparty

Tick tock……

#THREAD on #ToryLies.

Over the last week, Priti Patel lied about funding to tackle domestic violence, Gillian Keegan lied about Randox, Sajid Javid lied about Govt promises, Matt Hancock lied about #NHS contracts, & Boris Johnson lies all the time.

What kind of liars are they?
This #THREAD quotes extensively from, & is based on, an article from US based "online relationship therapy platform" 'Regain' - which imho is appropriate, given the long history of Boris Johnson's affairs & failed relationships.

Defining what it means to lie & how bad it is, can be challenging: it involves questions of intent & expectation.

Clearly, when someone deliberately gives a false or misleading statement or answer to a question, this is lying, & it's a big problem - *especially* in politics.

Easiest deal in history, overseas aid 0.7% of GDP, 40 new hospitals, Northern Powerhouse Rail, HS2➡️Leeds, no tax rises, pensions triple lock, 350 million/week to NHS, boost for 🇬🇧 fishing, Erasmus scheme safe, EU citizens secure, no Irish Sea border.

All promised.

All broken.
Feel free to add others, they won’t all fit in 240 characters. #ToryBritain
And in many ways the most accidentally hilarious broken promise of all. #TorySewageParty #ToryShambles #idiocracy

A moment of you time please

@BorisJohnson's NI Tax hike is very unlikely to end up in social care

They will find a way to funnel it to Tory donors like they did with Covid19 #PPE

It affects the poorest the most

It's the #PollTax all over again

In effect it's the #PoorTax
A big chunk if it will end up going straight into the #BrexitTax black hole.

*HOW MANY ROLLS OF DOWNING ST WALLPAPER?*

UK's richest 1,000 wealth increase since 2009:

571 MILLION💰💰💰

Crony contracts given to Tory donors:

2.4 MILLION 💰💰

Investment in Andrew Neil's #GBeebies:

71,428💰

Average additional annual income from nurse pay rise:

0.4 +👏
The wallpaper cost £840 a roll.

#NHS nurses will receive a pay increase worth less than half a roll of Downing St wallpaper this year – despite their heroics in guiding the country through a deadly pandemic resulting in 150,000 largely avoidable deaths.

thelondoneconomic.com/news/nurses-pa…
#GBeebies investors may be more interested in #INFLUENCE than financial return: £60 MILLION was raised with help from Libertarian billionaires #Cato's John Malone & #Legatum's Christopher Chandler, & hedge funder Paul Marshall who bet big on #Brexit chaos.
