Unsung heroes time. This is Gill Phillips. Aka @ladywell23. You don’t know her but she is @observerUK & @guardian’s head lawyer & the backstop behind #ParadisePapers & #CambridgeAnalyticaFiles & much more. Tonight she won us this award for press freedom. THANK YOU GILL 👏👏👏
She’ll hate the photo but tough. The day after Robert Mercer first threatened to sue us,I discovered his lawyers also represented Rosneft & Gazprom. ‘How does that feel?’ I asked her. ‘To take on Putin’s lawyers?’ She rubbed her hands together, ‘LOVE a battle.’
She’ll probably try & make me delete that tweet on legal grounds, FYI. But - yoo hoo millionaires! - I’m freelance & these tweets represent my views only. Plus I live in a council estate. So. There is literally no point in coming after me. Do your worst. (Hi Jim Mellon! *waves*)

This is such a shocking story in its details.

We shrug off #DataPrivacy because we think it's basically inconsequential to our real lives. But the impact of #CambridgeAnalytica just began to be felt in 2015 and spread to 50 MILLION or 1 in 6 Americans.

The panoply of ways Trump used his cachet w/ billionaire supporters like the Mercers should concern everyone, including those on the right & left who just eyeroll these investigations as about #HillaryClinton when that's tangential to our national security & honest elections.

Every American should want to know what happened in 2016 because every American who's a critical thinker knows the person who wins the most votes won the election.

Moreover, everyone knows Democratic systems ensure an unskewed result, unlike #Russia's imminent election.
