A thread about drug smuggling, the British Empire, and the ways in which historical wrongdoing by the Establishment persists into the present day. 🧐🧵🌳🍃🍂⛓ #EstablishmentPsychopathy #history #ToriesOut #OpiumWar #ColonialViolence
It’s generally well known that the Opium Wars of the mid nineteenth century were launched by Britain against China in order to benefit British drug smugglers… 🤨🇬🇧🇨🇳 #OpiumWars #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China
After all, even the National Army Museum – not typically regarded as a bastion of anti-Establishment lefties – states this frankly in its displays on the Opium Wars. #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China

It’s Friday and you’ve had the most difficult week of work! All you can think about is loading up @GhostRecon #Breakpoint and playing some PvP to tame the beast! You get in the PvP lobby and hit search.... 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes go by with no games found. (1/10)
Finally at 12 long minutes of searching you find a game and you’re excited to have a chance to release your pent up aggression on some other players. Lets go! You load into the match, btw it only took an additional 2 minutes to load after finding the match, (2/11)
and find out your teammates are 17/18 kilometers off map? Invisible! What? How!? You also find out this has been going on since June 2020 and it’s February 2021. You saw, on another forum, (3/11)

Uncivil & Outright Criminal Behaviour seems to have been normalised throughout societies everywhere;

- Politics
- Crony Capitalism
- Social Media
- Reality TV
... Even Sport 🧐

I've tried to get my head around it with the help of some good books & following smart journo's Image

One month ago today I posted this modest call for peaceful action against the kleptofascist crooks in Downing Street... ⬇️☺️ In that time, their attacks on democracy have only got worse. 😠✊🌹🇪🇺 #3Point5Percent #ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist
Some regime apologists try to rubbish the possibility, but the capacity of the country to resist this Tory cabal through peaceful protest is clear. ⬇️🙂✊🌹🇪🇺 #3Point5Percent #ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #RussiaReport #crooks
Will you do what you can to protest this corrupt “government” and oppose the kleptofascist takeover? 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #3Point5Percent #ToryCorruption

A short thread about resisting the #kleptofascist takeover, with an added last-ditch family appeal. 😐✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #StopFascism #RuleOfLaw
When the execrable Cummings/Johnson regime launched its attack on Parliament back in August, I was horrified: this was in fact a coup against democracy. Like thousands of others, I hit the streets to protest. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #StopTheCoup #resist #JohnsonMustGo #RuleOfLaw
As a historian with Asperger’s & misophonia, the idea of giant crowds is truly horrifying to me, and I’d much rather be quietly writing books in the countryside… 😐✊🌹🇪🇺🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #autism #Aspergers #AutismStrong #resist

A short thread on whether the honking great bellend @BorisJohnson can reasonably be called “a fascist”… 😖✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #BellendusMaximus #CummingsOut #FatbergOfDishonesty
I have often posted about the creeping fascism ⬇️ in the Cummings/Johnson regime, & attracted much ridicule from unthinking Brexity types. They are keen to avoid inconvenient factual analysis... 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #StopFascism #ToriesOut
Do I therefore think @BorisJohnson is “a fascist”..? No, he’s too uninterested in ideas to maintain any kind of ideology, even a lunatic one… Moreover, literally his only concern in life is *himself*. 😖

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

A short thread on Tory loon Gerald Howarth, former MP for #Aldershot, summarising his comprehensive awfulness. 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 #ToriesOut #ToriesKill #COVID19 #ToryGenocide
Young Gerald showed an early desire to be on the wrong side of history, joining the Conservative Party in 1964 while still a teenager. In that year, the Tories were busy conducting one of the most racist election campaigns ever 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #racism

In March 1968, while millions of young people around the world protested against US violence in Vietnam, Howarth attended the famous Grosvenor Square demo to protest IN FAVOUR of the war… 😮✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ffs #ToriesOut #Vietnam

For your convenience, a curated selection of historical evidence proving that the Tory Party must be *destroyed* to save the country... 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 (thread of threads) #ToriesOut #history #crooks #JohnsonMustGo #COVID19
(1) We have been lumbered with the most wretchedly awful “prime minister” in history, largely because of our insane class system... 😠✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #JohnsonMustGo #revolting #liars
(2) Tory racism runs deep... Even the “nice” Tories often harbour revolting views. This woeful example leapt out the archives when I was reading @renireni... 😳 #ToriesOut #JohnsonMustGo #racism #ToryShambles #COVID19 🦠

A thread about #COVID19, colonial violence, and how the English class system is wrecking the country. 🧐✊🇪🇺#coronavirus #ToriesOut #history #SystemChange #JohnsonMustGo 🦠
This chap is Hugh Trenchard, or “viscount” Trenchard*, a Tory member of the House of the Lords… 🤨🇪🇺 #ToriesOut

*footnote: I don’t recognise titles for living people, having abolished the honours system. I use them for historical personages, for the avoidance of confusion…
Being a reliable Tory footsoldier, naturally Trenchard has offered his “strong support” to Boris Johnson for his handling of the #coronavirus emergency… 😖✊🇪🇺🦠 #resist #liars #COVID19 #ToriesOut #ToryShambles
