Brexit-Loving Koch Acolytes Are Getting Rich Off Climate Change Denial in the UK splinternews.com/brexit-loving-…
Elliotts took funding from Koch and Mercer to pave the way towards smaller Govt and climate denial/deregulation, remember how #COP26 went tits up? The Tories have opened the floodgates to intense fossil fuel mining in the north sea, paid by corporate free market libertarians.
Sheer number of right wing think tanks supposedly non profit are keen to hide who their funders are, it is a scandal of the highest degree that corporate money dictates Govt policy, Brexit would not have happened if legislation was in place to stop disaster capitalist wreak havoc

Good evening #PrimeMinister,

How’s that number crunching going?

Have you seen the up to date figures on #NHS staff sickness in London?

What are yours thoughts on the sustainability of healthcare in the capital over the next few weeks?

#COVID19
@BorisJohnson @sajidjavid

What about cases Mr Johnson..Are you pleased w/ how case numbers are rising?

119,789 is without doubt a WORLD BEATING NUMBER so I guess you must be proud?

In fact the number of ppl who’ll be forced to isolate this #Christmas is truly SPECTACULAR 👏!

#Covid19UK @DHSCgovuk

And hospitalisations?

1,004 today alone.
6,299 in the last 7 days….!

That’s going to hit hospitals very hard especially as more #NHS staff go off sick w/ or due to #COVID.

Would you want to spend #Christmas in hospital, ill & afraid with no visitors?

Lots of people who don’t remotely mind terrified, freezing refugees drowning in the Channel will shortly appear here, incandescent with rage that they may be required to wear a piece of fabric over their nose & mouth for 15 mins when they’re in a shop.

Priti Patel’s brilliant scheme to attract the best minds in the world to global Britain is going, well, much as you’d expect.

Merkel says farewell to France.

This is what grown up diplomacy looks like. And what the EU project means to so many citizens on that vast continent. Whilst we sit outside the tent, drunkenly shouting at foreigners.

Beautiful. 🇪🇺

I find this intensely moving. Bridges not walls. Peace not jingoism and war-making. Cooperation not stand offs.We have made a terrible, terrible mistake. #BrexitBritain
I wish all those who lost their lives in WW2 could have seen this moment.

In a democracy, all elections must be held in a free and fair manner. Therefore, the Brexit vote must be invalid. Simply because, the leave campaign, knowingly LIED to the people. And not for any righteous, or patriotic reason. 1/7
But so, the big corporations and the super-rich, could continue with their unethical, tax avoidance shenanigans.

To pull off their Brexit scam, they weaponized social media platforms and the corporate press. 2/7
They coerced, and incentivised the mainstream media, to toe the Brexit line. Which in turn, required them to poison the minds of the voters with: outright lies, fear, misframing, megaphones, noise, smear, distractions, red-herrings, humour, sideshows, misinformation, 3/7

Following allegations of Russian interference in our #BrexitBritain democratic processes, here’s ‘Rule Britannia’ cheekily re-imagined as a Russian romantic piece, complete with Soviet nostalgie colour scheme. 🇷🇺 🎼

I love the #StoolBritannia hashtag. 😂💩
There is possibly a series of Soviet treatments of popular #flagshagger 🇬🇧 tunes to be done actually.

I detest Frost's contemptuous attitude to the EU. These are our friends, bonded by history, culture and multi-national families spanning a vast continent. They are our biggest trading market and our closest allies. What the hell are we doing here?
#BrexitHasFailed #BrexitBritain
Absolutely risible, almost paralytically drunk interpretation. #BrexitDenial
It’s appalling bad faith. How can anyone negotiate with a government that behaves in this way? No agreement will have any trust or meaning.

1. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

During this #COVID I am going to create a rolling thread about key issues and articles of interest, just so as you can see the evolution toward a return to normality in 2022, 2023, 2024 or 2025; according to predictions by #Aviation!
2. #Travel? #Holidays? #COVID19?

Interesting article about #staycations and their price!!

The attitude of some UK h/makers, is I'm afraid, a common feature found in holidays abroad. I've heard many a tale about the Master vs Serf behaviour of some Brits! independent.co.uk/voices/holiday…

It's not done with us yet:

"...hard to anticipate what the timeline will be for the expected shift of COVID-19 to endemicity..."

The thread from April👇🏼 is especially relevant as 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools reopen w/ almost ZERO MITIGATIONs to ⬇️#coronavirus transmission/protect people.

Sept 1st 21 -“numbers” many English ppl have become immune to, a stark reminder of a @Conservatives brutal #LivingWithCovid “policy”.
1/16
Almost 36,000 new cases.
842 hospital admissions.
207 deaths.

That is roughly 37,000 individuals/families affected by #COVID, yesterday alone!
And potentially 3,600 more cases of #LongCovid to boot!

This is what #LivingWithCovid looks like folks!

And by pure coincidence this is what a lazy, ignorant, selfish, cruel & greedy “strategy” against a global pandemic looks like too.

It is NO ACCIDENT!

This is the purest form of #SurvivalOfTheFittest, a plan so grotesque I didn’t think it possible in modern Britain.

Vieles wird verbrämt. Nur mal Wikipedia angucken. Es ist alles offensichtlich. Man muss nur wissen, was man da liest. #Laschet sagt, er sei „rheinisch-katholisch“. Das klingt nach Karneval, Offenheit, Toleranz. Pure Ablenkung.

"Laschet wuchs mit drei jüngeren Brüdern in einer römisch-katholisch geprägten Mittelschichtfamilie im Aachener Stadtteil Burtscheid auf."

Wer Aachen kennt, weiß, wie sehr der katholische Glaube dort das Leben bestimmt. Ich habe dort katholische Burschenschaftler kennengelernt und Opus Dei Mitglieder.*

Richard Drax MP: Are we getting any bilateral agreements with individual EU states?

Lord Frost: Some states might want to do them, but the EU doesn't allow it

Drax: I think you're hinting they cannot

Frost: Yes, but we can always hope the EU will change

#BrexitReality
..Have you examined where bilateralism is still allowed even though EU countries are within treaties which don't allow them as much latitude?

..Member states can do things with third countries on their own

#BrexitReality
..When you are a member of the EU and a big member state, people have to deal with you because you can influence things

..When you're outside, it's different, you've got to have good arguments, you have to be persuasive, you've got to present things as win-win

Trump has been allowed to get where he got to because people who knew better, for political reasons, went along with him. To oppose self serving lies and manipulation requires hard plain truths from politicians. If that doesn’t come from an opposition where does it come from?
I am extremely troubled. There are already severe problems in cross border trade apparent. We have lots of worms yet to wiggle out of the can. Who is going to call all this out as it occurs? There is no real fix to any of it outside the sm/cu without reducing rights.
Capital will be pushed into fewer hands too as small businesses are pushed out already struggling with covid.

2 days to go. 1 downside of Brexit per day for a year. That’s more than one downside for every £million the NHS didn’t get. Reply with suggestions (I can’t do it all!) #Brexit #BrexitReality

Remember: because we held all the cards, they needed us more than we needed them, and the genius move of keeping no deal on the table as "no deal is better than a bad deal'", whatever Johnson brought back from Brussels was the best Brexit deal possible.

So what did we win?
More on the issue that was, according to Brextremists and even @bbcnews, so emblematic of the importance of "sovereignty" to #BrexitBritain - fishing.

NEW: #Brexit champagne corks not out of bottle yet, but can reveal taste of what is to come.

UK will run full border for EU imports - 'no deal' plans prioritising trade flows to be junked 1/thread

telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/…
Biz groups to be told the 'good news' in meeting on Feb 10.

Radical departure from the October 'no deal' plans, that were designed to minimise checks to keep goods flowing - medicines, fruit and veg. etc. /2
Per source: “We are planning full checks on all EU imports - export declarations, security declarations, animal health checks and all supermarket goods to pass through Border Inspections Posts.” /3

The Brexit negotiations must conclude by the end of June, the Brexit panic has yet to set in.

The UK is staring down the barrel of its own gun.

The EU are just waiting for us to pull the trigger.

They won’t flinch.
The EU isn’t in a panic, they don’t need us, they’ve already decided to endure some minor economic fall out, to bridge the EU budget gap, to continue to integrate, to reduce barriers further.

They want us to stay but not at any price, if we want so called liberty then off we go.
We don’t hold many cards, almost none, we can’t sit across the negotiating table like an enraged BXP moron and expect to be taken seriously.

EU citizens aren’t out rioting on our behalf, they’re simply amazed at our stupidity.
