🧵 1 We closed down RT, the Russian Dictatorship state propaganda service, but we haven’t shut down everything in my opinion.

🧵 2 It can be argued Farage has done more economic harm to the UK than anybody else.

On whose orders did he do it?

#Ukraine #GBnews #FarageOnGBNews #Farage #RussianPropaganda #LordHawHaw
🧵 3 Here’s Farage chastises the King, because King Charles rightly compared the brutal Russian Dictator to Hitler

Did Farage get instructions to resist such claims?

When Eton College gave Farage a platform, what did they think was going to happen?

Boys directed racist & misogynistic abuse at state school students invited to join them for a speech by Nigel Farage

#Eton boys ‘sanctioned’ by a school that saw fit to offer hospitality and a platform to Farage and thereby, predictably, exposed state school children (Eton’s guests) to racist and misogynistic abuse

The unsurprising #Eton #Farage scandal speaks volumes about UK establishment and the school that's groomed so many narcissistic sociopath politicians & journos

La notizia del dossier #USA che indica come la #Russia finanzi partiti esteri, è una non-notizia.
Un fiume di denaro da soggetti legati al regime di #Putin è da anni documentato verso politici che promuovono interessi di #Mosca
Vediamo come.

1)Francia
E' una storia complicata.
LePen nel 2014 ha bisogno di soldi per il partito. Con la mediazione di un suo deputato europeo accede a un prestito di 9,4 mln€ al 6%, con una banca chiamata First Czech-Russian Bank, di proprietà di un oligarca amico di #Putin.
2/11
2016, la banca chiude, il credito viene venduto a un'azienda del complesso militare russo. I nazionalisti francesi si trovano ad essere debitori di un fornitore dell'aviazione russa, in cui lavorano personaggi molto vicini ai servizi segreti.

1/. “I’m not really bumbling. I’m as hard as nails”

In this interview, #BorisJohnson shows that the “bumbling Boris” character is just that: a character

“My approach to politics & human nature is that you can make a good case for anything” #BorisResigns
2/. “#BorisJohnson put on a buffoon mask to become a celebrity, & now he can’t take it off.”
(J Lanchester)

“He seems to know that if we’re chuckling at him, we’re not likely to be thinking hard about his agenda, or doing anything to counter it.”
(J Coe)
3/. In 2020, I dug up #BorisJohnso’s #TakeItOnTheChin

I also found the smoking gun of the #HerdImmunityScandal - the #GreenwichSpeech

“There’s a risk new diseases such as #coronavirus could trigger a panic that goes beyond what is medically rational”

Today, the @ElectoralCommUK registered Britain First as a political party

#BritainFirst is a far-right, fascist political organisation formed in 2011 by former members of the BNP. The BNP was created from the NF

If it can be shown to insight racial hatred, could it be barred?
In 2015, Bannon told #CambridgeAnalytica’s @chrisinsilico to build a psychological warfare tool to hollow out democracy & rive open divisions in societies

It worked

The far-right are not only on our streets & TLs but increasingly pulling strings of power
In 2017, Bannon asked #Farage to be part of a "convening authority" to "knit together a populist nationalist movement around the world"

He mentions Modi, Orban, Sisi, Duterte

We can add Trump, @BorisJohnson & @jairbolsonaro to that list, & several others

Gurkhas and the British

Men from the hillsides of Nepal began joining the British Army in 1815,right after the end of the 1st phase of the Anglo-Gurkha War of 1814-16.They have been serving the British Crown ever since.#Gurkha #Gurkhas #Nepal #ENGITA #Eng scmp.com/week-asia/opin…
The Gurkhas played an essential role in establishing the British Raj in India and fought for the British in Afghanistan, what was then Burma, Tibet and in countless other conflicts.

#England #Britain #British #Army #BritishArmy #Eng #ENGITA #Euro2020Final #EuroFinal #EURO2020
In the first world war alone, tiny Nepal,with a population of around 5 million, sent over 200,000 Gurkhas to fight for the British. 1 in 10 never returned. In the second world war over 250,000 Gurkhas fought alongside the British and more than 33,000 never returned.

I’m not a bad loser, anymore than #Farage was. The vote markedby the 52% was never coherent. #Brexit was never defined. Most Brexiteers in 2015 espoused retained membership of EEA/Customs Union, Single Market. They couldn’t all be lying. But post 2016 strife polarised positions.
You can do anything for a day. Many days accumulated may lead to a reversal, who knows? Now, however, to the immediate future. Despite the rhetoric of Britain’s future, so much of #Brexit dwelt on our imperial past.
In a very real sense, it will represent an important lesson. We will soon learn that obsession with a mythical past will bring no succour for the present. If analysts are correct, our keen advantages in financial services have been slashed by this deal.

! UPDATE FROM THE FRONT !

Brave #Kent Free Forces fought off numerous attacks by Tories in the N & W under General Johnson near Chatham and counter-attacked in the SW toward Farage Battalion in Sussex. Johnson's allies attacked by sea, have been repulsed with heavy casualties. Image
#Farage forces in Sussex were scattered by the counter-attack mainly from his own units firing on allies or shooting themselves in the foot.

A spokesperson for Colonel #Farage stated "We are not retreating, we are advancing in an alternative direction..." Image
Generalissimo Johnson has declared that the #Kent Rebels will be crushed "if we just believe enough in The Final Victory".

His troop morale is said to be low, anticipating a Putsch by Reich Commander Gove. ImageImage

Refarding #Farage's 'videos' of migrants landing in #Kent:

The 'St Margaret's Bay' one he posted (just to pick one example) shows a different coastline in the background.

The 7 onboard suddenly become 4 then 11. Image
Video of them 'on the beach' after 'wading to shore' shows them bone dry from waist down.

Video of them walking away has them mostly wearing different clothes. And they appear to have suddenly gotten taller.

How many others are faked or composed of clips from elsewhere reused ? Image
If there truly is an ''INVASION !!'' of boats ''SEVERAL TIMES A DAY !!" then why would #Farage need to create a mini compilation of bits 'n' pieces of other vids - possibly from other countries, other years - to post ?

Lying is in his nature, it the only tool he has. Image

1. Orwell’s 1984 opens with Winston Smith writing in his diary about a film he’s seen. “One very good one of a ship full of refugees being bombed somewhere in the Med. Audience much amused”.

Responding to #Farage’s “shocking invasion” tweet, someone suggested sinking the dinghy. Image
2. Earlier this year I wrote about why the language we use to talk about refugees matters.

If left unchallenged, right-wing populists will increasingly frame the conversation & the language we use through fear-mongering & the weaponisation of prejudice.
euronews.com/2020/03/10/eur…
3. The language of invasion - of being "overrun" or besieged with "swarms" or "floods" of aliens - is nothing new.

It is also not just the domain of the tabloid newspapers.

In March, @nytimes captioned an excellent piece saying police used rubber bullets "to repel the hordes". ImageImageImageImage

#AntiVax Conspiracy Hoaxer Jim Corr @Jimcorrsays - he of the Corrs @TheCorrsMUsic - is defending a #Fascist Rally in #Dublin (one which is being hosted under the false guide of something to do with paedophilia, as usual). And attacking those who try to counter it. Image
@Jimcorrsays @TheCorrsMUsic He routinely posts hoaxes about Vaccines, #Covid19, Anti-Mask, persecution of the Irish by immigrants, Mossad, and #LGBT.

Perhaps at this point 'Jim' would like the opportunity to clarify his views. Image
@Jimcorrsays @TheCorrsMUsic Of course there simply IS no 'Rally against Paedophila' in #Dublin.

it's a #Trump / #QAnon #Homophobe's Day Out, by Hermann Kelly - ex #Ukip, ex #IRA, now an #Irexit loon.

Why Jim Corr would chose to throw his lot in with these Far Right Extremists, only he can explain. ImageImage

A vote for the #Tories in this election is a surrender vote, a vote to stay under #EU control. #Johnson’s insistence on pushing his #FakeBrexit shows he has no intention of delivering independence. He won’t even try. The #BrexitParty is the only vote if we want #Brexit delivered.
#Johnson has broken trust with the people. He could have been a national hero, but has stayed loyal to his own tribe. He’s hoping we’re so worn out by 3 years of lies and obstruction we’ll settle for anything. His #FakeBrexit is an establishment trap to keep us under #EU control.
#BorisJohnson has a large majority in the palm of his hand if he makes a ‘no deal’ pact with #Farage and the #BrexitParty, but he refuses to do it because, like most #Tories, he doesn’t want the #UK to be independent.

A short post on what it takes to #GetBrexitDone

The trouble with the brexits is every time tories add things they end up lengthening Brexit

In 2016 when #farage defined Norway Brexit change would have taken days. Keeping the original #thatcherdeal means Brexit is done already
But the tories added on two things that weren't part of the 2016 mandate because no one thought we'd be so stupid.

1. A need for an EU FTA - all the 2016 campaigns assumed staying in the customs union.

2. A need to renegotiate all Non-EU FTAs that we get through EU.
These decisions added YEARS.

1. EU FTA, the average is 3-5 years. The idea it will be quicker is said by people who know nothing about international trade. It will be slower due to all the exceptions.

2. 10 years? It should be 35 years if we take the average. Can you imagine?

[Thread] 1) @Nigel_Farage, as hothead-in-chief, deserves a Twitter analysis. So I analysed a recent Tweet of his which has about 6,500 Retweets. The tweet in question is the one where Farage is obviously playing two truths and a lie [see screenshot]. #ٍStopTheCoup #Brexit
2) Why did I choose this tweet? It's because we are interested in what messages get amplified the most. So I downloaded Farage's TL to see which was the most retweeted. Twas the aforementioned ofc! The graph shows Nigel's recent RTs by number over time #StopTheCoup
3) As before, I will examine the biographical details of those who retweeted this tweet. A count of the most common words reveals that the most common biographical detail of those who amplified this tweet is MAGA, followed by Trump, followed by Brexit [See below]. #StopTheCoup

Putin has actively sought to destabilize the EU by supporting nationalist, populist parties like the League. In May, the Austrian gov’t fell after a video revealed the leader of Austria’s R wing discussing public contracts in exchange for RU campaign aid. nytimes.com/2019/07/10/wor…
“Funding to an Italian political party by a foreign state is illegal,” said Emanuele Fiano, member of Parliament who called on Mr. Salvini to appear before the Lower House to explain the financial negotiation heard on the tape.

nytimes.com/2019/07/10/wor…
“It’s also dangerous to know that an Italian party has a contract of collaboration with a foreign state,” he added in an interview.

Two former prime ministers from the Democratic Party also called on Wednesday for an official inquiry.

‼️VoteLeave: Electoral Fraud?

VoteLeave, the official referendum campaign that was partly funded with taxpayers’ money, looks to have committed what may be one of the biggest incidents of electoral fraud in Britain in more than a century
amp.theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
Compelling evidence provided by Shahmir Sanni, a Vote Leave whistleblower, Gavin Millar, a QC at Matrix Chambers, an expert in electoral law, told us that this was of a scale and seriousness that simply hasn’t been seen in Britain in modern times.
amp.theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
📌The investigation into VoteLeave is just one of a number of ongoing inquiries into potential crimes.

Many of which were facilitated by new technology.

👉🏼Facebook. Because – and this is the key point – this is an election that took place in darkness.
