Where were the police? Extinction Rebellion roll up to the door of the Treasury and use a fire engine to spray 400 gallons of fake blood over the building - without an officer in sight…
absolutely unacceptable...

The "activists" used a decommissioned, diesel-glugging fire engine and its hoses in an attempt to spray a message onto Treasury in Horse Guards Parade, but the hose broke and they were unable to control it before the liquid went everywhere.
no-job-mobs are ready to face arrest, go to jail & go on hunger strike in an attempt to curb global warming somehow

Hopefully police start immediately arresting people. These idiots have no idea how many people they are preventing from getting to work.…

Lessons for India
From the UK's @UKSupremeCourt judgement today in the case of R v Prime Minister (On appeals from: [2019] EWHC 2381 (QB) and [2019] CSIH 49).
In a landmark Judgement today, 11 Justices ruled unanimously that Prime Minister @BorisJohnson had acted unlawfully..
when he advised the Queen to prorogue Parliament for a period of 6 weeks from a date betn 9-12 Sep to 14 Oct 2019.
This is a landmark judgement and the fact that it is unanimous lends further to its weight. It led immediately to calls to @BorisJohnson to 'consider his position'
That phrase is code for "Resign!". Most Constitutional experts agree that under its unwritten Constitution the British Prime Minister wields great power - far more than say the US President. But #BoJo has been stymied ever since he became PM.

1/ A l'appel d'un ingénieur retraité de Shell et d'un pseudo-journaliste de l'Alt-Right, quelques centaines de scientifiques et d'ingénieurs se ridiculisent en écrivant une lettre climato-négationniste à l'ONU.
2/ Il importe de faire un shaming efficace contre pareil obscurantisme. On y trouve évidemment Vincent Courtillot, dont l'article grossièrement faux n'a toujours pas été rétracté et Jean-Claude Bernier, qui se répand dans la revue de la société savante de Chimie.
3/ On trouve encore d'autre figures notoires du climato-négationnisme comme Isabelle Rivals ou le militant de l'extrême-droite "libertarienne" Patrick de Casanove.

What the hell is @jeremycorbyn doing?
Why is he enabling #Tory #Brexit?
Is this the final betrayal?
No, it isn't.
It's the predicted effect of decisions taken 2-3 years ago. All things considered, it's not as bad as it could have been (thanks to #StopBrexit crowd).

To understand why, I need to outline 2 important mechanisms that most people, politicians and commentators seem to ignore, dismiss or simply don't get. They have different and somewhat opposite consequences, but are both decisive in the current & foreseeable predicaments.
1st and foremost: the biggest constraint that applies to political decision-making comes from the past decisions & policies.
It is a massive constraint.
Cameron COULD NOT convincingly campaign for #Remain, because his own policies CREATED the discontent channelled by #Leave.
