David Hencke investigates why Boris #Johnson’s Government handed out £1.7 million for #election management services without a competitive tender.
A large software company whose shareholders include #Brexiter and former #Conservative Cabinet minister Peter #Lilley
has been given a lucrative contract by the Cabinet Office without competitive tendering to revamp the management of the electoral register in extraordinary circumstances.
Though local government is in charge of the electoral register, the Government has responsibility
to contract an annual national canvas of people entitled to vote. #Idox Software Ltd, part of the worldwide Idox Group, won the £1.7 million contract for its revamp just in advance of purdah imposed by the 2019 General Election –

Have you noticed how the people making the arguments for a hard or no-deal #Brexit aren’t formally connected, but sound similar?
And have you noticed how none of their arguments seem to be a positive thing for the #environment?
There’s one very good reason why.
All those pushing for market deregulation and for the #UK to enter into trade deals that could be catastrophic for the #climate are connected
As a new map from DeSmog shows, there is a large network of lobbyists and campaigners based out of offices in and around Westminster’s
55 Tufton Street – with ties to climate science denial on both sides of the #Atlantic – that is now calling the #Brexit shots
Tufton Street Network
The map shows around 2,000 connections between the supposedly separate groups in the network, all operating around #Tufton Street.

1/10: A win for #JoeBiden in the #USElection next week would be good for the overall interests of #UK but problematic for the #BorisJohnson government. How would the arrival of a Biden administration affect British #foreignpolicy? A thread..
2/10: As the song says, it ain’t what you do it’s the way that you do it. Not all #Trump foreign policy was bad (though much was). He made an important call on #China. But he has no idea of the common good, squandered American leadership & damaged alliances & institutions.
3/10: #Biden would be a reversion toward the norm. Unexciting perhaps, but needed & welcome. But he would not mean wholesale change in #US foreign policy. The pressures of #COVID19, political polarisation & economic dislocation remain. As will the tough geopolitical environment.

A prediction.
It has been reported that Boris Johnson has been deliberately using delaying tactics over the #Brexit deal until after the #U.S. elections.
If Donald Trump loses the election Boris Johnson will probably agree to some form of a #Brexit deal.
If Donald Trump wins, it will be a no deal #Brexit.
What sort of partnership has there been forged behind the scenes between Boris Johnson and Donald Trump and will this be the awaited opportunity for the #UK to become another #U.S. 52 state?
Let us not forget the link between Donald #Trump, Boris #Johnson, Nigel #Farage and Dominic #Cummings with the campaign and far right coach Steve #Bannon, prior to the rigged #UK General Election, who has since been arrested and is now awaiting trial for #fraud.

The Covid-19 data and statistics, that we are all now so familiar with, have been reported by the mainstream media (MSM) practically without scrutiny.

There have been some notable exceptions; a few journalists who still understand their vital role to question power.
Unfortunately, for the most part, questions have been most notable for their absence.
Without a functioning mainstream #media, and with #government scientific advisors seemingly bought and paid for by pharmaceutical corporations, it has been left to independent journalists
and researchers to question the Covid-19 narrative that we are all supposed to accept without hesitation.
Few have worked harder than Mark #Oakford.

Mark has sent 1,392 freedom of information requests to local authorities, #Clinical Commissioning Groups, #NHS trusts,

Dear #FridaysForFuture: u have rocked the world, & you continue to rock. But ur mobilisations (like those of the 'old' #climate-movement) have not led to structural changes. The other side digs in deeper, wins battles like #CAPReform.

Question: how will we step up the fight?
Let's turn this into a #thread on #climatejustice-strategy for the European movement(s).

1st thing to acknowledge is: there *is* no European #climate/CJ-movement. There are movements of hugely varying strength w/in different countries, & w/ the exception of the @gastivists
fighting the EU-Commission's project of switching Europe to #fossilgas - that's the commission w/ the "#greendeal", which e.g. #Greens continue to defend (…) - there's no movement player (yet) who's attempted significant EU-wide mobilisations since 2015.

2. 5G monitoring (connects app)
3. Injected chip (connects all)
4. Forced crypto system UBI to get it
5. Serco Prison Administration
2/ this Worldwide Open-Air-Prison is being tested in #Australia Right now in full where they also have added a 5 Kilometer travelling radius limit. They fine you severely & arrest ppl for going outside. They have also added a 25km additional barrier.
These are the Fence Pens.
Anyone thinking “this is a conspiracy theory” is fooling themselves. This is being built RIGHT NOW in front of everyone’s faces and it’s completely documented, spelled out by them also in plain view. We have entered the fast speed construction phase of this, its not an IDEA
