Umm. Hasn't anyone at @MoJGovUK told @DominicRaab that a "Bill of Rights Bill" won't enter the statute books as a #BillOfRights (if passed) but only as a Bill of Rights *Act*?

🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
We still have to wait for the Bill to be published, of course - but the petty press release:

gov.uk/government/new…

makes it clear this isn't a #BillOfRights; it's not even a #BillOfGoods - it's a Bill of #Bads and #Wrongs that starts off poorly, and then gets even worse...
Even as it characterises #HumanRights claims as "trivial", the Government reveals its fatuity; the example it gives 👇 refers to a ruling that simply required the UK Courts to see through *their own process*!

Just how "trivial" does this Government consider #DueProcess to be?? Confirm that interim measures from the European Court of Hum

Appalling bit of subediting(?) but the article itself lays out both the history and US context of #RoeVsWade and the consequences of overturning it with rather more nuance:

thetimes.co.uk/article/the-ti… The Times view on US abortion law and overturning Roe v Wade
The "right approach" the writer appears to support 👇 is the codification of the #RightToChoose into federal #law - which should have happened decades ago. The major issue being the parlous state of US politics... What it should also do is push the issue to the top of the p
For the avoidance of doubt, I absolutely support women's #RightToChoose - it is not for ANY authority to tell people what they can or can't do with their bodies. Anger is justified, but not enough; this is an issue around which people must #mobilise and begin taking back #agency.

As the dust settles on the civilian coup here are a few key takeaways: 1) #IK has lost morally and politically. the #Opposition wanted the #selectedPM out and new elections, and this will happen. #IK dragged his feet but eventually this has been the result. 1/n
2) Beyond politics, #IK has now clearly undermined the #Constitution, the Supreme National Institution. Article 95 is a self contained provision, which gives the #Speaker no power once leave has been granted for #VoNC. A vote has to be done, no matter what. 2/n
3) Article 69 is about matters of procedure in Legislature and doesn't apply if the Speaker decides to throw out the Constitution itself. Imagine if the Speaker decides to not count the votes of Women or non-Muslim MNAs? Would that be allowed by the SC. 3/n

Piecing it all Together: What if this election fraud campaign, done in several states, is nothing more than a college exam scam on steroids? What if we have the entire crime’s evidence already in hand? @RudyGiuliani @SidneyPowell1 @LLinWood @dbongino @MariaBartiromo @tracybeanz
First, let’s ask some simple common sense questions. If this wasn’t Trump, and was Hillary running for re-election against a GOP challenger, with her having a lead in ALL battleground states, would the count have stopped? 🤔
Then there’s a lot of other facts LEADING UP to 2020 election, occurrences AFTER counting stopped & BEFORE GOP witnesses returned the next day, none of which passes the smell test.

@d9monti @shannonrwatts I think #Democrats are misunderstanding (and underestimating) the #GOP/#Trump play here.

They are *NOT* trying to win these frivolous lawsuits!

What they *ARE* trying to do is:

1. Delay #vote certifications; and/or,
2. Keep multiple lawsuits alive in various #states.

/1
@d9monti @shannonrwatts Thus allowing #GOP controlled legislatures to declare that b/c the #election results are disputed (see: lawsuits) they have no option but to "reluctantly" exercise their #Constitutional duty under Article II Section 1 Clauses 2 thereof & appoint their own #electors!

#Coup

/2
@d9monti @shannonrwatts State legislatures #GOP controls:

1. #Arizona (11 Electoral Votes)
2. #Georgia (16 Electoral Votes)
3. #Wisconsin (10 Electoral Votes)
4. #Michigan (16 Electoral Votes)
5. #Pennsylvania (20 Electoral Votes)

= 73 Electoral Votes #GOP legislatures will try to flip to #Trump.

#Thailand #protesters already gathered infront of parliament house where MPs & senators are debating on whether to amend #constitution. They'll likely be able to start taking a vote at about 6pm #Bangkok time. This is continuation of reform demands #ไปสภาไล่ขี้ข้าศักดินา

Read this attached bit of text. It is taken from a major widely read international newspaper with key geographic details removed. Your task: To guess which part of the world is this about:
North Korea?
Myanmar?
Syria?
Xin Jiang?

Whichever one you guessed, you'd be wrong Image
It is from #Kashmir. It is from @TheEconomist Sept 12th.
"India is still trampling on civil liberties in Kashmir" is the headline. with a picture of a deserted street guarded by armed troops - not to keep the enemy out but to keep the citizens locked in. Image
Read the article here. #India's Kashmir policy is a shambles, an abject failure, if 370 days after the #Article370 #Constitutional change, it takes armed repression rather than a functioning administration to present an outward sense of a deathly calm.

Remember the version of the #Cleveland #Police Department that showed up at the #Republican National Convention in the summer of 2016? That was then, this is now. Appalling images from the #GeorgeFloyd protest show officers are far from reformed. cleveland.com/opinion/2020/0…
#Reporter @LeilaAtassi writes: "They were the picture of #constitutional #policing, representing #Cleveland when all the world was watching. Working alongside law enforcement officers from across the country, Cleveland #police managed even the most volatile demonstrations..."
"... on downtown streets with #professionalism, #civility & respect for the rights of citizens. Observers worried that the embattled #police department – then operating under its first year of a federal consent decree governing use of force – would overly restrict protests..."

1/The same @realDonaldTrump, #President #Reagan has raised his concern regarding #CORRUPTION in the system.
In every state, Intel community’s main responsibility is to find out& eliminate CORRUPTION.

2/So #CORRUPT agents who abuse power to their Personal&Political gains are NOT reliable&considered as the main source of INFECTION, spreading their dirtiness nationwide,significantly to @TheJusticeDep,since everything is under their influence/manipulating background,hiring,firing

No @jimgeraghty this issue is not that @DavidAFrench disagrees with @realDonaldTrump!

The issue is that his way was losing and wouldn't have worked. @JebBush was never or no other establishment @GOP was going to win any other elections!

@BarackObama...

nationalreview.com/the-morning-jo…
...had found THE key to keep the young and progressive on a perpetual readiness to wage war. SOCIAL JUSTICE was broken down & replaced with @washingtonpost @nytimes validating 1 sides thoughts over the other!

The issue with @DavidAFrench is he is ready to throw away his...
....principles when his sensibilities are hurt. @judgeroymooreAL was a God sent and the best test for true conservatives!

The purity tests! All those who failed are easy to list. Suddenly the constitutionalists like @JonahDispatch @jpodhoretz @DavidAFrench @stephenfhayes...

ANALYSING THE MANIFESTOS

Throughout #GeneralElection2019 we will analyse where the parties stand on constitutional issues. Following the launch #LabourManifesto @UKLabour @Coree_Brown looks at their commitments ⬇

centreonconstitutionalchange.ac.uk/news-and-opini…
@UKLabour #manifesto sets out their social and economic programmes and their plan for #Brexit. However, engagement with the broader #constitutional questions facing the #UK are minimal.
#Constitutional issues are detailed at the back. Abolish the @UKHouseofLords replace it with a Senate, and hold a #constitutional convention to address some of the thorny issues, all of which have been included in previous manifestos.

No surprises here where #Thailand court has disqualified key #opposition leader @FWPthailand @Thanathorn_FWP as #MP as they found him guilty of holding shares in a media company after registering his candidacy for the #Thai election early this year
Back in May this year when #Thailand #parliament convened for the 1st time after March elections, after 5 years of #military rule, @FWPthailand leader @Thanathorn_FWP was already barred from sitting in as #MP by #constitutional #court then over this same media shareholding case

• “Trump’s attorneys began to comply before suing to block the subpoena when they learned that Vance's office was also seeking the president's tax returns for the past eight years.”
• “A district court judge ...
... threw out the lawsuit, prompting a quick appeal from Trump’s lawyers and an expedited schedule from the Second Circuit.”

• “The ruling sets the stage for a potential battle before the Supreme Court, where Trump's legal team has vowed to take the fight.”

• “...Trump’s ...
attorneys have agreed to fast-track the case to the Supreme Court in the hopes of getting it before the justices this term.”

• “The agreement requires Trump’s attorneys to petition the Supreme Court within ten days after the circuit court’s decision.” — by 11/14/2019: #crickets

Tweet thread on #Kashmir #Article370 #Constitutional changes.
I fear the travails and tribulations of the people of #JammuAndKashmir will continue for a very long time before they get better. The changes wrought on 5 August 2019 by #ModiSarkar2 are driven by ideology and politics
They are not driven by pragmatic considerations of what is good for the people of that troubled region of India. #ModiSarkar2 argues that with the special status gone development beckons and a new dawn starts. What they don't explain is what about the previous regime prevented it
Much will depend on how the changes are implemented but the very manner in which they were pushed through Parliament, the various sleights of hand and specious legal tricks, and the deployment of troops to #lockdown Kashmir - all these bode ill for the future

@PPFA has been running a promotion on @Twitter ever since @HHSGov announced re-institution of an accounting rule to ensure that federally funded grant recipients use federal $$$ only for their intended purposes.

Here's a sample of their wares:
@PPFA goes on to describe the rule as unethical, and to claim that the rule prevent health care workers from communicating with their patients.

And, on a superficial examination, you might think that they are correct.
They aren't.
