#BBC ने अपने पत्रकार #GarryLineker की 'बोलने की आजादी' #FoE क्यों छीनी?… Image
इंग्लैंड के पूर्व फुटबॉलर @GaryLineker को #BBC ने उनके शो से अस्थाई रूप से हटा दिया है। BBC के पत्रकार गैरी लिनेकर ने ब्रिटिश गृह सचिव पर आरोप लगाया कि प्रवासियों एवं शरणार्थियों से जुड़ी नई नीति में उनकी भाषा 'नाज़ियों' वाली है। BBC को उनका यह बयान पसंद नहीं आया। Image
गैरी इंग्लैंड के सबसे महान फुटबॉल खिलाड़ियों में से एक हैं और वर्तमान में ट्विटर पर उनके 8.7 मिलियन फॉलोअर्स हैं और इस वक्त वे इंग्लैंड के सबसे प्रभावशाली जर्नलिस्ट भी माने जाते हैं।

@BBCNews के अनुसार, गैरी को उनके शो से अस्थाई रूप से हटाया गया है।

Ever tried to Global #Britain but ended up accidentally pulling a little #England?
- Turns out you’re not alone.
A🧵on British identity, foreign policy & why we need to properly understand #Brexit to move beyond it.
- based on a new article I have out in @ISQ_Jrnl
1/25 Image
The article, which I'm really happy to have in top IR journal @ISQ_Jrnl, challenges a received wisdom about #Brexit – that it both reflected & reinforced a general, almost tribal polarisation of British society.
This might seem counter-intuitive (& against the evidence) but stay with me - its not that simple & that’s important. Not only for understanding Brexit but for getting the UK’s international affairs right in future [spoiler: it matters for other countries too]

#Britain HAS been 'invaded' & 'taken over' by dangerous 'aliens' intent on destroying Britain. But not by asylum seekers, refugees, or migrants - by toxic billionaires Rupert Murdoch & Jonathan Harmsworth, & Tory extremists.🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🇬🇧

#EnoughIsEnough #StopThePressBarons #Leveson2
Since #Brexit, the UK Govt has been brazen about bringing in Koch-funded extremists from a global network of free-market 'think tanks' to shape Govt policy, generate divisive culture war headlines, & push Britain further to the right than ever before.

The Nazis' political strategy was to make alliances with the rich, & divide voters by using #propaganda to scapegoat minorities & vilify political opponents, thus securing just enough votes to become the Govt. Just 29% of the electorate voted Tory in 2019.

Anglo-Boer War Concentration Camps. Bladey horrific. They speak of the British propaganda campaigns, the British Press...The Daily Mail as usual obliges. All the way back then. Making the Boers less of individuals and more of a collectively despised group.
Nothing has changed! "100 Years ago the British Government was involved in a MASSIVE #propaganda ploy." "Propaganda was rife & under NO circumstances were they going to tell the British Public what they were doing." Displayed the camps as "refugee camps"
Just part of the new style of warfare. They made out the Boer people to be tremendously primitive. The propaganda machine was powerful, aided by moving film. MORE Theatre. #Ukraine

🇬🇧🇷🇺⚡️A former colonel in the British Army, Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, has acknowledged that Russian President Vladimir Putin was right about the weakness of the West in military and political terms.
#putin #uk #ukrainewar #britain #ukraine #russia
He believes that discussions in recent years have focused too much on reducing the number of soldiers and tanks due to the rise of cyber and space technologies, and that the UK's excellent defence industry is sometimes neglected by the government.
Bretton-Gordon argues that if the UK continues to donate equipment and ammunition to Ukraine, it must develop its local industry to maintain its forces in the future and fill the supply chain.

🇬🇧⚡️ According to the latest statistical report from the United Kingdom, more working days were lost to strikes last year than at any time since 1989.
#britain #strikes #london #rishisunak
The Guardian suggests that this is not surprising given that people have to fight to maintain their standard of living in the face of the country's highest inflation in 40 years.
The strikes have affected a wide range of sectors, including healthcare, railways, postal services, border control, and even driving instructors.

Today during the new phase of #UkraineRussiaWar, I'll talk about why Nordic, Eastern Europeans and Central Asians want #Russia to be disintegrated, and how pro-Russian supporters seek to undermine these narratives. Thread. 🧵 Image
The map of Russia is very big. Including the Kaliningrad exclave, Russia borders 13 countries on land and one country at the sea. However, Tsarist and Soviet conquests also led to Russia having some sort of influence beyond the border. Image
Being an inland empire, Russia expanded via land, a different compared to typical Western maritime empires. And Russia has, for a long time, treated its colonies in a brutal, repressive manner. ImageImageImageImage

Two #NATO countries have occupied parts of #Syria. #USA owns the largest deposits of oil and gas. Of the 80,000 barrels per day, the #Americans account for 66,000
1/3 of the fresh water (Tabka Dam) is also owned by #USA, along with the wheat. #Turkey exploits some of the most important agricultural areas in #Syria. The #Syrians get nothing
From this shameless racket, #Syria has turned from a producer and exporter of fuel, grain and medicine into a country where people are dying of hunger, cold and disease. There are no medicines and consumables, electricity and heating, food and basic goods

#Zoroastrian #Kurdistan
Hi all, so I realized I haven't been posting about Zoroastrianism in #KRG (South #Kurdistan) lately, so here are some latest videos, got them from Zoroastrian organizations in KRG.
Zoroastrianism is a recognized religion within Kurdistan & has grown (1/?)…
.. grown considerably in recent years. Zoroastrians have always existed in Kurdistan ever since Iranian peoples has settled. Not even islam was able to kill off the religion in the region (they tried), and as late as the 1200s there were Zoroastrian principalities fighting islam Image
From the Tayrãhids of the 1200s to now, Zoroastrians survived in hiding, in fear. However, in supreme irony it was islam and the evil it brought in the from of #ISIS that created a modern "revival" of the faith as many people were repulsed by the face of islam presented by isis Image

Hello and welcome to the #Ukraine daily thread for the 330th time.
Yes, Thursday is Day 330 of #Russia's illegal war and still the bickering goes on between Freedom allies about whether to give Ukraine tanks to defend itself.

All the news throughout the day in one handy thread..
Busy yesterday? need a recap?
Scroll through Wednesday's news from #Ukraine here, where there was only one big story, as yet another tragedy hit the country.

#Ukraine starts three days of mourning following the horrific helicopter crash just outside the capital #Kyiv yesterday morning.

The period of mourning comes just as grieving for the victims of #Dnipro ends.
One long punishment for the people of #Ukraine

(1/23) This thread is mainly addressed to my #German followers, but it could also be interesting for those who always wanted to know how Germany could become the most culturally leftist country on the European continent. Accordingly, this thread is a #political #commentary by me.
(2/23) It is about the historical personality of the first post-war chancellor, Konrad Adeneauer. I also would like to finally dispel a myth that still plagues German conservatives, by which I do not mean recationaries, but all those who do not want to destroy their own country.
(3/23) This myth is the myth of the "good old", #50s and #60s, #CDU (Christian Democratic Party) and the question of what role a post-war #Germany could have played if #Adenauer and his party had not made completely wrong decisions about essential political directions.

Oxfam Study: At Least 87 Yemeni Civilians Killed by UK and US Weapons from January 2021-February 2022.

Oxfam unveiled that “At least 87 civilians were killed by airstrikes from the #Saudi-led coalition in #Yemen using weapons supplied by the #UK and #US between January

2021 and February 2022.”

The charity accused the #UK government of ignoring an identifiable “pattern of harm” caused by the indiscriminate bombing – and argues it amounts to legal grounds for #Britain to end elements of its lucrative arms trade with #Riyadh.

Martin Butcher, a policy adviser at Oxfam, said that there had been 431 airstrikes in the period monitored, roughly one a day, and that the “intensity of these attacks would not have been possible without a ready supply of arms.”

The sheer number of attacks, the 87

The special services of #Ukraine have prepared a new large-scale anti-#Russian provocation and accusing Russian servicemen of committing #WarCrimes

#Ukrainian SBU and #British agents arranged for the opening of graves in cemeteries near #Kharkov region
where local citizens were buried who died of natural causes. After the exhumation, the bodies of #Ukrainian citizens were disfigured and dumped into specially prepared ‘pits’ to create false ‘evidence’ of alleged ‘torture’ and ‘shootings’ of civilians by #Russian servicemen
Representatives of the #Ukrainian services and law enforcement agencies are currently photographing and videotaping the bodies of dead #Ukrainian citizens, as well as imitating the work of ‘forensic experts’ and other ‘procedural actions’ in the presence of fake ‘witnesses’.
