1. In an employment tribunal in 2012 between Claimant Mr R Fraser and Respondent, the University and College Union, Mr Fraser charged the Respondents with ‘institutional anti-Semitism’ which, he said, constituted harassment of him as a Jew.#RFraser #Antisemitism
2. The Judge was AM Snelson, R Fraser was represented by Mr Anthony Julius of Mishcon de Reya, solicitors and Antony White QC represented the defendants. It can be viewed here HT @dascott66 judiciary.uk/wp-content/upl… #AMSnelson #RFraser #AntonyWhite #AnthonyJulius #MishconDeReya
@dascott66 3. The Judge was clear that John Mann was hostile and came up with little to no evidence of anti- semitic actions. #JohnMann #AntisemiticSlurs #AntiSemitismCzar

18. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

MINI THREAD - Next General Election

There are some mixed messages coming from #Boris on what sort of #Brexit he will deliver on October 31st.

Here's my perspective as a voter on what happens in 3 scenarios

#BrexitElection

/1
If GE is before 31/10 choice will be

1. @conservatives (featuring @brexitparty_uk)
2. @LibDems (featuring @UKLabour & @theSNP)

A Tory/Brexit Party pact would result in a Leave landslide everywhere outside London & Scotland. Lab wiped out in Mids & North

#BrexitElection

/2
GE after #Boris failed to deliver Proper #Brexit on 31/10 choice will be between

1. @brexitparty_uk
2. @LibDems (featuring @UKLabour & @theSNP)

TBP wins in a landslide outside London & Scotland. Tories wiped out. Labour wiped out in the Mids and North

Okay, with apologies to Tennyson, I've scribbled this very quickly, so some of it might not make much sense.
Here goes anyway:

THE CHARGE OF THE
LEAVE BRIGADE.
Half a brain, half a brain,
Half a brain ERG-ward
All in the valley of Debt
Rode the Boris Blunderers.
"Forward! The Leave Brigade,
Charge for the Huns!" he said.
Into the valley of Debt
Rode the Boris Blunderers.
"Forward, the Leave Brigade!"
Was there a man dis-Mayed?
Not though Raab or Davis knew
Someone had blundered.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
Into the valley of Debt
Rode the Boris Blunderers.

Fun #Boris fact. About 13 years ago, when I was news ed at @ResFortnight, we sent a reporter along to interview the then shadow higher education minister about universities and science policy. It was a total farce. He neither knew nor cared one jot....
@ResFortnight At one point, he blustered (approximately), "Well you clearly know more about this than I do, Why don't you tell me what our policies should be."
@ResFortnight Universities and research, I've always believed, are incredibly important-economically and socially. I was naive enough at the time to be shocked at such blatant disregard of the issues that I still regard as central to Britain's future.

David Davis says he doesn’t want other Cabinet ministers to follow him out of the exit door. But then pointedly adds “people can only make decisions of conscience by themselves” #boris #r4today
DD says the Chequers plans won’t return sovereignty to the House of Commons. Red rag for Brexiters. #r4today
"We’ve giving too much away, too easily” says David Davis #r4today

#ABTVtoStopBrexit isn't about affecting the balance of power or forcing a General Election. #ABTV is about sending a message to the Tories, and *especially* to Labour that people don't support *any* #Brexit. Not a #HardBrexit, #SoftBrexit, #NoDealBrexit, #Lexit, or *any* Brexit.
The Tory's control more than half of councils, nearly double Labour. Losing control of even half of them is unrealistic, and even if it happened under fixed term government I can all but guarantee it won't result in a General Election.
A Prime Minister calls a GE under two circumstances:
1) They are miles ahead in the polls and think they can increase their majority (as in 2017)
2) They have suffered a humiliating defeat or scandal.
