#TalDíaComoHoy 1725 Felipe V y Carlos VI firman la Paz de Viena que pone fin a la guerra que ambos mantenían desde 1704 por la herencia de Carlos II. La Paz se concretaba en 3 tratados, uno de paz y amistad, otro de alianza defensiva y otro de comercio y navegación.

ABRO HILO👇
El primer tratado recoge el reconocimiento de Felipe V como Rey de #España y la renuncia de Carlos VI, pero ambos "podrán conservarse durante su vida los títulos que han tomado" por lo que el Emperador podía seguir utilizando el título de Rey de España hasta su muerte
En el artículo 9 establece que "Habrá por una y otra parte perpetuo olvido[...] general amnistia y perdón todos y cada uno de los súbditos de una y otra Majestad". Por tanto, se permitía a los austracistas volver a España y se restablece la restitución de los bienes incautados

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

1. #Gibraltar #5G #Gibtelecom. I head up technology at Gibtelecom and would like to set the record straight with regards to 5G. Also happy to answer non-commercially sensitive questions.
2. Even though I don’t usually engage in others’ speculation, I fear that an unreasonable voice is gaining momentum within our community. I would, therefore, advise those individuals who are contributing to the discussions to conduct in-depth research from reputable sources.
3. Those who are fueling the conspiracy theorists should refrain, given that parts of our society are becoming increasing worried. And, those of you that are genuinely afraid, don’t be.

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

Coverage of Tuesday’s session of the #UNGA 4th Committee:

un.org/press/en/2019/…

#Gibraltar was one #NSGT covered on Tuesday, as was #Anguilla and French Polynesia
The @GovAnguillaUK representative argued that the relationship between the UK and #Anguilla is “... not a modern relationship, nor is it one that offers respect to our citizens.”
The @GovAnguillaUK representative also made this interesting point at the #UNGA 4th Committee on Tuesday: “The United Kingdom’s bundling of Territories together for administrative reasons means that only the agendas of the most dominant members of such a forum receive attention.”

Authorities in #Gibraltar have released the Iranian supertanker Grace 1, which was seized on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping 2.1m barrels of crude oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions.
The decision to release the ship was taken hours after the US launched a separate last-minute legal move to detain the vessel.
But Chief Justice Anthony Dudley said that there was no US application currently before the court.

“That’s not before me,” he said. “There are no applications in relation to the US letters of request [for mutual legal assistance].”

Jeg ser at der er en del misforståelser, fejlagtige fremstillinger og overdrivelser ang. hele #Iran / #Hormoz / #atomkonflikt spørgsmålet på #SoMe og #dkmedoer pt. Så her nogle facts:
1. Det er USA, der har brudt atomaftalen - en aftale, verdenssamfundet var enige om fungerede efter hensigten.
2. Iran har overholdt atomaftalen - 15 ud af 15 inspektioner fra det Internationale Atomenergiagentur har bekræftet dette. Det er det største inspektionsregime i verdenshistorien og netop årsag til at atomaftalen blev hyldet som diplomatisk mesterværk.

💰Arron Banks - STM Fidecs Ltd

STM Fidecs Ltd was the first to register Leave.EU as a wholly owned subsidiary. Its ownership then passed to Banks.
theguardian.com/politics/2015/…
🔑Banks was previously a “substantial” shareholder in the firm’s parent company.

📌And the Panama Papers give further details of Banks’s offshore interests. He is listed as a shareholder of PRI Holdings, together with two other people.
theguardian.com/world/2016/oct…
One of them is Elizabeth Bilney, the chief executive of Leave.EU. Documents show Banks owns 25,500 shares in the firm, and Bilney 12,250.

THREAD: Spain may have got its way on the #Gibraltar ‘colony’ footnote but it’s worth noting a few points to cut through the ridiculous grandstanding of Spanish MEPs and media over this so-called "victory".
Gibraltar is a British overseas territory. It is on the UN list of non-self-governing territories ONLY because of outdated criteria. Twice a year, UK + Gibraltar remind UN that they enjoy a modern, non-colonial constitutional relationship based on partnership + shared goals.
The footnote has no legal effect. Gibraltar hasn’t suddenly become ‘a colony’ because of a mention in an EU document. In pushing for this, Spain has alienated + annoyed many EU partners by politicising an otherwise uncontentious regulation that sought to protect citizens.

@MichelBarnier, addressing a Spanish audience, cuts to the chase: withdrawal agreement is the best possible for citizens and budget but also for aviation and fisheries.
The UK has grossly underestimated the consequences of #Brexit, says Barnier. It will need to build up a whole new administration in very little time.
#GibraltarWatch: Barnier, in Madrid: “There is a protocol to the Withdrawal Agreement saying what will happen with #Gibraltar.” Now, moving on to the more important question of Ireland...

Hablemos algo de #Gibraltar, que está de moda. Vamos a llamarlo: "La izquierda más tonta de Occidente". HILO ⬇️
En primer lugar decir que los mismos que se rompen la camisa por los estragos del juego electrónico en los barrios obreros de #losdeabajo olvidan que son de empresas que están en Gibraltar, por lo que sería facha mencionarlo o proponer medidas en contra.
Poca broma con esto, en Gibraltar hay 30 empresas que controlan el SESENTA POR CIENTO del mercado del juego electrónico MUNDIAL (via @CorazonRural )

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
