My Remarks: on #UK Gov

I'm not expert; not vindictive. I'm not even sure about any recourse to action upon #UKGov

Yet the NHS and Justice Bills are the tip of a an unpleasant effort

On our #NHS.

In chats and giving opinion was one Tony Ben during the beginning of the privatisation of the NHS by creating the internal market, and its restructuring.

Just how deep does #ToryCorruption run in Britain?

Has the UK Government appointed Ministers based on their knowledge & direct experience of Corporate 'divide-and-conquer' strategy?

What has this got to do with UK Home Secretary Priti Patel?

tobaccotactics.org/wiki/priti-pat…
Priti Patel is one of the most controversial politicians in modern UK history.

She's a hard-right populist nationalist free-market fundamentalist, who has broken the Ministerial Code on at least three separate occasions, including "strong evidence" of bullying civil servants.
Priti Patel is perhaps best known for her relentlessly inflammatory, divisive, toxic & dangerously irresponsible rhetoric, especially around the demonization of asylum seekers & migrants, & those who professionally or otherwise have a responsibility to support or defend them.

History unfolded today in #Hungary: #Orbán got a #conservative #catholic political newcomer to fight in 2022. @markizaypeter now faces an unprecedented uphill battle since the regime undermined #democracy w/ #informalpower and created a grossly uneven playing field. Thread 🧵1/6 Image
Orban built a hybrid #autocratic state governance in which #cronies/relatives are monopolizing state/EU funds for his benefit. He established additional sources through which he could cement political/economic power even if Fidesz will be replaced by the opposition.2/6
The integrity of the 2022 #elections is in danger as the regime developed new ways to co-opt the process. Besides putting financial pressure on the opposition, it used a network of agents like citizen’s Police for coercive vote-buying, targeting the most deprived electorate 3/6

In 1997 I wrote a book about Jonathan Aitken, the Conservative minister jailed for lying in a libel action against the Guardian. Alas, Aitken has been at it again - claiming he received no money from #Kazakhstan for a book on its dictator. He got £166,000 theguardian.com/news/2021/oct/…
The money was routed via a PR company that works for Kazakhstan's government. Its founder Patrick Robertson is a #Brexiteer ultra who worked in the 1990s as Aitken's press guy. World PR paid Aitken the cash from secret #offshore accounts and underwrote his US book tour
The #PandoraPapers includes Aitken's hotel bill for an event at the Library of Congress. Ironically enough, Aitken’s political career came to an end in 1996 after he lied about who had paid for his stay at Paris's Ritz hotel – not a Kazakh dictator back then but the Saudi royals

Gd uncensored answers but IMO Cons are deluding themselves. Ya can’t say O’Toole & #CPC hv been “positive & compassionate” while cheering for vaccine fail, voting & msging against LGBTQ2S, Indigenous ppls, women, ongoing COVID relief and Chinese & Asian Canadians for starters
Some other things I find notable @mattgurney’s interview with this anonymous #Conservative operative.

It was obviously very intentional for the #CPC to hide their most controversial candidates and for Erin O’Toole to ignore the candidates in the ridings he campaigned in. #Elxn44
It’s wild #CPC weren’t prepared to be attacked on guns and the issues that Conservatives always hv to answer for. This is a sign not just of the self delusion I mentioned but the insecure flip flops is further evidence of an an unmoored party. But still willing to knowingly lie.

A question everyone should be asking: WHY has #cdnmedia failed to report on one of the biggest political scandals in decades. O’Toole & #CPC colluded w/ #Conservative premiers to delay implementing covid measures until after #elxn44vote. People died as a result #CovidInquiryNow
The very next day after #elxn44vote, #JasonKenney shuffles Shandro, #ScottMoe flies under the radar & the UCP sends an official request to the Trudeau gov’t for help. (Because of jurisdiction the feds must be invited). Something UCP could’ve done weeks ago. #CovidInquiryNow
I’d just like to underscore this point. The letter sent by Ric McIver the day he replaced Shandro, is extremely revealing. A “State of Public Health Emergency” was declared on Sept 15, but no formal request was made to the Trudeau gov’t until immediately after #Elxn44. #ABleg

[THREAD] KEY CONCEPTS FOR AUTISTIC ADVOCACY
In this thread, I am going to provide definitions for some of the key concepts which often feature in discussions, training, arguments and even academic papers about autism.
Defining them and agreeing about the definitions can help us reduce our arguments and gain consensus more quickly -- or at the very least, it can help to ensure that we're at least arguing about the same thing, even if we don't agree about how to approach it.

#CPC memory lane. Not 40 or 50 years ago. But the past TWO years. This is who they are. They encourage & stoke extremism & violent rhetoric. They pump out disinformation & propaganda through 3rd party front groups. Stoke xenophobia & of course, anti-choice cultish beliefs #Elxn44
#CPC memory lane continued. #Brexit was a malign influence operation, including Russian interference & disinformation. Who was a cheerleader for it? #CPC.

Remember the Yellow Vests Canada “United We Roll” AstroTurf “protests”? Where somehow supposedly out-of-work truckers had the money to fuel up transport trucks at a cost of multiple thousands of $$ (sporting anti-Trudeau slogans), travel across 🇨🇦, pay for meals & hotels? #Elxn44
It pretended to be “grassroots”. It was anything but. It was a mixture of #Conservative politicians at all levels of government, right wing propaganda media - Rebel, True North Centre etc (even a few CBC ppl). + white nationalists & other extremists #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44
#Conservative leaders were right in there. Promoting an obvious op, benefiting the fossil fuel industry & pumping out propaganda to stop #ClimateAction. This is the #CPC. A pro-extinction position, promoting denialism & #DarkMoney funded deceit. #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44

When there was an assassination attempt on 🇨🇦’s PM, July 2/20, there wasn’t a single #Conservative MP who publicly condemned the act. A radicalized man who consumed RW conspiracy nonsense, loaded his truck with weapons + live ammo, intent on lethal harm. #NeverVoteConservative Image
Not only did Erin O’Toole not condemn the violent act, this is what O’Toole tweeted the day of the assassination attempt & the next day. O’Toole added to the rhetoric…the very type that helped radicalize the would-be assassin. #NeverVoteConservative #2TierOToole #Elxn44 ImageImageImageImage
Michael Barrett, #CPC “ethics” critic, not only said nothing about the assassination attempt, but tried to take credit for a federal Liberal project & acted as though the Liberals had nothing to do with it. Then he amplified 1/6 seditionist #EliseStefanik. #NeverVoteConservative ImageImage

Just a reminder of the facts, in the midst of the fog of war being created by #Conservative owned #cdnmedia.

Justin Trudeau’s gov’t not only skillfully managed the pandemic in spite of hostile premiers refusal to do their part in keeping people safe & afloat.…#exln44 #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
…but the Trudeau gov’t also managed to maintain a AAA rating (Germany was the only other G7 country to do so), gain the highest marks of ANY advanced economy from the IMF, make 🇨🇦 #1 in vaccinations & surpass 🇺🇸 in economic growth for the 1st time in history. #elxn44 #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
Instead we should reward the #CPC’s domestic malign influence operations, disinformation campaigns, #DarkMoney funded front groups micro-targeting social media users & return 🇨🇦 to Harpers of darkness? #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44 #cdnpoli https://t.co/jEBwN8QpSb

#Elxn44 🧵

Why is the #cdnmedia narrative always, “Liberals show their “desperation” when bringing up classic Conservative attacks to frighten voters about:

- #abortion rights
- #LGBTQIA2S rights
- lack of #ClimateAction
- #healthcare
- cuts to programs and services/austerity
Can someone pls explain why Trudeau *shouldn’t* warn Canadians that Erin O’Toole would govern like a #Conservative?

Shouldn’t #cdnmedia #elxn44 coverage be more leery of a CPC candidate who promises big spending, to be pro-life & pro-union, to act on climate change & the TRC?
Sure O’Toole & the CPC platform *says* stuff but again — why is Trudeau *desperate* when he brings up so-called “wedge issues” when those “past” policies & positions are central to conservative ideology, and hv broad support from current CPC MPs, donors, activists & base voters?

I have just spent a stonking £742 on government accredited tests for 2 people to go to Greece for a week. We’d already paid for the holiday so we had no choice. I am fuming. Why is the government allowing this day light robbery?

Cash for the #Tories buys you access. And access means cash from the public purse. That’s the abysmal two-step that channels public cash to Party donors.
All of this happened secretly through the VIP backchannels for #PPE and #Test and Trace contracts
unearthed by Good Law Project.
But now the institutionalisation of favours for those with special access is out in the open.
Mandating #Covid testing services for travellers entering and leaving the UK has meant a bonanza for those firms lucky enough to get approved.

Obviously no fan of @andrewcuomo here. But regardless, what is happening here w/ the the whole #CuomoResign outcry is WRONG. ESPECIALLY coming from those self-professing "lovers of liberty and individual freedom" on the #Conservative Right.
1/
@andrewcuomo What folks don't seem to understand is our Liberties and Rights are all for NOTHING if and when we choose NOT to defend the Rights and Liberties of those whom we don't like, are actively opposed in ideology, and/or are persecuted by.

In the end, true Liberty is rooted in sacrificial love of ALL people, and ESPECIALLY those with whom we just don't like, or don't like/love us back.
Wise advice from over 2000 years ago:

Let’s be very clear about what’s going on here…

EVERY SINGLE DECISION currently being made about 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿CHILDREN’s HEALTH, WELLBEING & EDUCATION is being HEAVILY INFLUENCED by #Conservative backed/funded groups & also by MEDICS who are downplaying #COVID/#LongCovid effects on them.
This is incredibly concerning for 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿children & their families.

PLEASE WAKE UP MSM….I’m just a dr, not an investigative journalist. But it doesn’t take much digging to see how sinister & dangerous this situation is.

Who are you trying to kid @Douglas4Moray?

The public health data says the exact opposite. I’m starting to think that to be a current #Conservative MP one must promise to ignore every single bit of scientific evidence that says #COVIDisAirborne!

@ScotTories @Conservatives
THE SCIENCE IS NOT COMPLICATED & shows clearly that #VentilationMatters & #MasksWork to⬇️ transmission in crowded indoor areas.

Schools across the UK have been more or less #COVID MITIGATION-FREE zones throughout the pandemic.
Children, staff & families have been badly failed.
#Tory desperation for #Freedom is selfish, reckless & unscientific.

Please listen to public health experts, medics & parents who understand the need for ongoing protections for the school community in Aug/Sept.

Ignore pressure from @UsScotland et al & JUST FOLLOW THE SCIENCE!

A blanket of smoke is covering #Alberta today.

Climate change events like this are becoming more frequent. So here is a short thread on air quality.

#cdnpoli #ableg #abpoli
cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Right now there are air quality advisories across the province.

Health Canada uses a 1-10 scale where 1 is nice clean air and 10 is a like a #Conservative government in your lungs.

Alberta uses the same scale.

airquality.alberta.ca/map/🔗

#ableg #cdnpoli #absmoke ImageImageImage
A 1-10 scale is beautiful in it’s simplicity, but it also fails to communicate what’s really going ok with air pollution.

@environmentca does offer explanations for these numbers, but you have to go looking for them. Image

Listening to @RicHolden makes me want to scream.
NO! We are NOT in a lockdown & no one is asking for all restrictions to go on for “in perpetuity”.

As I said y’day- the #NorthEast is a RAGING #COVID fire!
Irresponsible, reckless, callous & ignorant views spewed daily from the mouths of @conservatives.
There is another way ➡️ listen to the 1000+ experts (drs & scientists) who signed the letter that was published in @TheLancet last week.
Listen to @WHO!
This #Conservative government do not have our best interests at heart!

1/ Sadly I can believe our government is pursuing a #HerdImmunityByInfection “strategy” ….but I am really struggling to accept that their senior medical & scientific advisors & those in @PHE_uk etc are condoning such a brutal & inhumane policy.
2/Assuming govt want #coronavirus to spread rapidly, despite the natural #Firebreak provided by the school holidays, they must be feeling rather satisfied that the numbers of cases are ⬆️ so rapidly.
Presumably they block out the ⬆️in hospitalisations & deaths so they can sleep?
3/ They avoid the issue of #LongCovid wherever possible so are unlikely to notice the iceberg of morbidity as it gets larger.
Even if they do, difficulties in accessing a PCR test because the symptom list is inadequate will ⬇️ the number of ppl who can prove they had #COVID.

Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

Praying for defeat: Labour insiders accused of wrecking #Corbyn campaign in leaked report middleeasteye.net/news/labour-pa…
The #Labour Party has launched an “urgent investigation” into a leaked internal report on antisemitism, which has revealed evidence of factionalism and alleged sabotage that took place during Jeremy #Corbyn's four-year tenure as party leader.
The 860-page report found evidence of a “hyper-factional atmosphere” at the party’s headquarters with regards to #Corbyn, who was replaced by former shadow Brexit secretary Keir #Starmer as party leader earlier this month.
