Let’s talk about Boris

One of most disreputable, toxic, selfish politicians I’ve ever met. As Tories choose between British Trump & ex-Health Sec who’s mission was to destroy health service, let's remember why #Johnson is #UnfitForOffice

2018: Letterboxes
Wrote that women wearing niqab looked like “letterboxes” & “bank robbers”; triggering attacks on our Muslim community, “letterbox” graffitied on homes, and giving racists new language in hate speech

2008: “Blacks have lower IQs”
As editor of the Spectator he was responsible for - and clearly condoned - this racist drawl. He and his racist worldview has no place in Parliament, let alone @10DowningStreet

A quick THREAD on the contradictions of the home office and @sajidjavid over the stripping of #ShamimaBegum's British citizenship.
It's a MUST READ to see just how @theresa_may's old department's #hostileenvironment appears to discriminate against BAME people... 1/n
So currently there are international laws which state that when a citizen commits a crime in a foreign country, that country has the right to deport the person to their home country. This is accepted, and not a contentious issue. 2/15
In fact, the British gov't loves using these powers.
It regularly deports British residents of Caribbean descent. People who moved to Britain as toddlers and have British kids have been taken away from their families and sent 'back' to the Caribbean. 3/15

If it’s one thing I hate about the current times we are living in, it’s the need for attention. It’s why we have mass shootings and why we’ve seen a spike in school shootings. 24 hour news coverage of these events practically makes the perpetrators demigods. The next shooter
are almost always inspired by the actions of the previous one. We live in a time where one person filmed themselves eating tide pods for attention and no one thought “let me get this person some help” No! They thought “How can I top it” in order to get like and views on Social M.
Now think about why are kids shooting up schools? Hell I won’t even stop there, think about why do people in general commit mass shootings....currently? People are committing murders and are posting it online for the world to see in order to bring attention to themselves.
