You can hear #TheresaMay's reaction from here

So the splitting of the #ToryParty continues. Where will it end? And can we expect resignations from #Labour if #Corbyn is seen as giving up too much to #TheresaMay during the discussions tonight.

With a #GeneralElection looking more likely I wanted to pre-empt what is likely to be another major attack on Labour by looking in to the way some matters have been reported in the MSM.

SPOILER ALERT - MUCH JOURNALISM SEEMS PURPOSELY INACCURATE AND CONFABULATION. 😡

Antisemitism is a serious matter - and claims of antisemitism should be dealt with quickly and people found guilty expelled.

In this thread I make no excuses - my aim is simply to report how the media have represented the issue.

Christian Today (Paul Bayes 23rd March 2018)

The Article CONFLATES vile cases of antisemitism (from right wing) with current Labour. Starts with "imprisoned abusers" then goes on to justify Rabbi Sacks attack on Labour

Way back in the 70's when I was growing up we were told at School that in the future there would be more leisure time for everyone. That each generation was better off than the one before + that would continue. So there was a hope for all for the future
It seemed perfectly reasonable to think this would continue. But what we didn't realise immediately was with the Election of Thatcher in 1979 was that so many gains we had made as a Labour Movement would be slowly reversed as she radically changed the post war consensus
By the time Blair got elected in 97 the country had changed for the worse and people were desperate for change. But the sad fact is New Labour were a massive disappointment and I don't just mean Iraq. New Labour didn't challenge the Neoliberal economics that Thatcher started

How can Corbyn get into Downing St at the next election if one comes soon? Here is my thread looking at what needs to change from the 2017 #GeneralElection when #Labour won 262 seats. /1
To become the largest party, Labour needs to gain around 30 seats. It so happens that there are 29 seats where Labour is in 2nd place less than 3 pts behind the incumbent. 21 are held by the #CONSERVATIVES, 7 by the SNP, 1 by #plaidcymru. /2
To get a working majority, Labour needs to gain 61 seats given Sinn Fein don't take their seats. It so happens there are 62 seats where Labour is in 2nd place less than 7 pts behind the incumbent. 45 are held by the Conservatives, 16 by the SNP, 1 by Plaid Cymru /3

Dear anyone who thinks they will vote Conservative when we have a #GeneralElection ...please read the below report from UN Rapporteur on extreme poverty & human rights before you cast your vote.

Let your conscience do the rest.

“But through it all, one actor has stubbornly resisted seeing the situation for what it is. The Government has remained determinedly in a state of denial.”

#UNVisit2018 #poverty
“Even while devolved authorities in Scotland & N Ireland are frantically trying to devise ways to ‘mitigate’, or in other words counteract, at least the worst features of the Government’s benefits policy, Ministers insisted to me that all is well and running acc to plan”

#bbcqt just before Q2 I commented on @dominicraab's statement on @the3million and @BritishInEurope
@BBC edited it out
Are non-UK ppl not allowed to challenge the deal after all?
At least @DawnButlerBrent , @thatginamiller etc heard it
I just want ppl to be informed⬇️
@DominicRaab @The3Million @BritishInEurope @BBC @DawnButlerBrent @thatginamiller What I said today on #bbcqt and did not make it on TV:
#citizensrights deal for @The3Million and @BritishInEurope is not 'a done deal' because
1. 'Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed' - Theresa May
[2]
2. It does not comply with Vote Leave's promise of 'automatically granted indefinite leave to remain' (1 June 2016 Vote Leave statement)
