From Friday's @ukcolumn news, we take a look at some of the crazy Orwellian moves by Gov't in #Australia. It's absolutely astonishing...
#Australia (con't): So the Govt's TGA (FDA equivalent) are going after @CraigKellyMP for tweeting... a Gov't report on #vaccines. Honestly, you couldn't make it up...
#Australia (con't): So last week @CliveFPalmer dropped a few major bombshells at his press conference. Here is the first one - exposing the financial collusion between Gov't and Media which is dictating #Covid narrative:

Why would India🇮🇳 benefit the most from AUKUS ?

The new Asia-Pacific security pact between the US🇺🇸, the UK🇬🇧 and Australia🇦🇺, referred as AUKUS, made waves in China🇨🇳, France🇫🇷and the EU🇪🇺

No matter how suddenly this might have come, there is a state that may benefit the most from it, India 🇮🇳.

•Firstly, India may welcome the formation of AUKUS, as a stable, long-term US commitment to counter China in the region.
Moreover, in taking the UK within the agreement, Washington succeeded in committing London to take a more proactive role in defending "a free and open Indo-Pacific".

@thezambologist It's #climateChange, not global warming (see floods & extreme temperatures both summer & winter with dumps of thousands tons/day #CO2 and other toxins by #UK .gov & #NATO over #Britain and #Europe)

#COP26 is a con trick @beisgovuk

@LanceForman random ➡️…
@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman I've literally watched it happening

I'm a plane spotter, not a climate change activist

But this year of literally solid #CO2 dumping coming from .gov and #NATO has to be the biggest con-trick ever played on the public

@thezambologist @beisgovuk @LanceForman @LanceForman - these planes cost hundreds of millions of £ / € a day to run) typically go nowhere. They're in the air from the early hours until well after dark

Those planes could have helped to get the "assets" out of #Afghanistan in a timely manner (3 months into 3 weeks)

Britain's business minister held emergency talks with the heads of the UK's largest energy suppliers and operators on Saturday to discuss a surge in gas prices that threatens a range of industries including suppliers of meat and poultry.
#UK business minister says he was reassured by energy bosses that security of supply was not an issue. #OOTT #ONGT
#UK business minister says protecting customers during a time of heightened global gas prices is an absolute priority, gas and electricity supply will continue uninterrupted if a supplier fails and we are confident gas supply can be maintained. #OOTT #ONGT

Heute wird dieses Interview von #Gassen durch die Medien getrieben werden. Ordnen wir es doch mal ein - was die @noz_de selbst leider unterlässt. #FreedomDay
🧵zu den unsäglichen Äußerungen:
In der ersten Frage wird die #Warnung der #Intensivmediziner von #Gassen in ein merkwürdiges Licht gerückt „Vielleicht Plateau wg. Reiserückkehrer, vielleicht Anstieg in kalter Jahreszeit. Entscheidend #Impfung.“
Öähm, wieso vielleicht? Köln war schon jetzt überfüllt.
Als nächstes heißt es „eine Impfquote von 70% sei gut und hinreichend“.
1.Mehr würden wir nicht schaffen können wg. der Kinder. (Ähm 9Mio≈11%, bleiben 89% mit Zulassung)
2. Mehr würden wir aber auch nicht brauchen (Soso, R0 ist also nur 3,3?? Auch bei #Delta?? Wär mir neu)

@matt_fbpe Thread as requested:

OK, here are some observations after having lived and worked here for 14 years.

Brits are far more adverse to most change and warier of political change than Australians. Aussies tend to "Give it a go" whilst Brits are more cautious.
Even though #Brexit has been politically polarising, Brits for the most part are moderate in their political outlook both Labour and Conservative voters. The extremes, which the current @GBNews is trying to exploit represent a very small portion of the population.
In Australia and the USA this is not the case, there are larger numbers of people drawn to extremes than in the UK. In my opinion, @GBNews went too hard from the off, to attract and keep a large audience in the UK, you need to be balanced, even if your bias is in one direction.

Half a year ago,there was a huge outcry in Germany that the EU had presumably botched #Covid19 vaccine procurements.

Now, it shows that the mistakes at the EU level are dwarfed by failures of the vaccination campaign in Germany–but no one talks about it anymore.
A thread. 1/
When early this year, Israel, the #UK and the #US pulled ahead of EU countries in the vaccination drive, there was a lot of finger pointing at the EU commission. As was broadly discussed, the Commission had looked too much after not paying excessive prices 2/
and had ended up with contracts under which vaccine producers such as #Astrazeneca believed they could serve other countries first and the EU only second. (Some of this ended before courts.)

In Germany, media called it the “Impfdebakel” (vaccination debacle).3/

Do the #USA🇺🇸 & #UK🇬🇧 have a disproportionately large proportion of idiots?

Or do they have Governments & news media influenced by rich free-market fundamentalists who want to deregulate everything, make people live & work in unsafe environments, & who value profit over lives?
Hungary, Brazil, the USA & UK are among the top 25 worst-performing countries on earth for COVID deaths/million of population.

Of these countries, the UK & USA have *BY FAR* the highest number of cases over the last 7 days - more than twice as many as the next highest, Brazil.
And just to be clear:

Brazil 🇧🇷 (population 211 million) - 99,846 cases last 7 days.

UK 🇬🇧 (population 68 million) - 206,462 cases last 7 days.

USA 🇺🇸 (population 333 million) - 932,988 cases last 7 days.

Out of these countries, the UK is the worst performing.

A long thread…
Ive been giving some thought to all the things we do badly in this country (it seems a lot). I work in education and i know many of us look at other schools to see what works well and pinch ideas to make our own schools better.
We aren’t proud. We recognise that other schools do great things and we can see how they benefit our own.
Have the government not thought of doing this?? I see and hear great things that benefit EVERYONE in other countries. Why arent we copying them.??
Heres what i think we…
…do badly that im pretty sure is done better elsewhere. (And this isnt just tory bashing cos some things may have been Tony and co.)
People selling assets to pay for social care
The cost of public transport

Why state of #sports in India needs a push now?
A Thread
@IndiaSports @YASMinistry @Media_SAI
The #school curriculums still have tiny space for sports. Indian mentality goes on with the saying, “Kheloge kundoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge nawab.”
This means that those who focus on sports are not valued, but those who are only focused on studies excel. With such a mentality, how can India expect to compete with nations like #China, the #USA, the #UK etc in the #Olympics?

1/210: Markus Kerber's Apollo 13

In March 2020, the German Ministry of the Interior @BMI_Bund issued a #strategypaper that weaponized fear in order to accomplish compliance with #COVID policies. The authors' emails were litigated under #FOIA request. My analysis. #MEGATHREAD ⬇️ Image
2/210: The @BMI_Bund emails have been released to the public as they were successfully sued by lawyer Niko Härting in a FOIA proceeding. They can be requested directly from @BMI_Bund/ @rki_de via @fragdenstaat. Download it here: Image
3/210: The emails originated March 19-25, 2020. They are so explosive because they map the inner discourse of the @BMI_Bund's now infamous #COVID-19 taskforce, which produced several crucial domestic policy documents. @OttoKolbl

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

Update #Corona cijfers #UK (26/08)

De laatste weken loopt het gemiddeld aantal positieve testen langzaam maar gestaag op. Begin augustus was dit teruggezakt naar 25.000 p/d, maar inmiddels zit dit weer op bijna 34.000 p/d.

Het aantal ziekenhuisopnames is ook opgelopen en is nu bijna terug op het niveau van de Delta-top (900 p/d).

De groei is ook hier niet niet extreem groot, maar wel gestaag.

Het meest opvallend is de ziekenhuisbezetting. Deze is nauwelijks gedaald toen de grote besmettingspiek van juli voorbij was, maar is nu wel aan het oplopen, waardoor het aantal gebruikte bedden ruim boven deze piek is gekomen.
