Did you know...

ORCOPS website says "ORCOPS uses the Portland Police Association office as a home base with an on-staff social media manager, in-house communications, and shared resources so our overhead is minimal."
Tom Perkins is the Secretary-Treasurer, who is also from the #PPA.

#ORCORPS touts itself as saying that their "members are the only law enforcement advocacy group in Oregon with a proven history of influence and representation in the State legislature."

This means they like to be involved in law & policy making.

Quick scan of #buildingsafetybill announcement

Stand by my earlier statement to @itvlondon on #Hackitt review

“It’s a bastardised wish list which may prove cost prohibative to implement”

Will be interesting to see the detail on Monday but THREAD with headline comments.
Many in the sector have known about the fire safety & building standards issues & have raised formally via professional bodies, academic & practice based outputs + petitions to @GOVUK or regional

Fig 1 major fire loss incidents

So why’s it taken @govuk decades to respond!
Immediate steps were too little too late despite warnings of #Garnockcourt #lakanal + many other fires around the globe.

Reviews occurred in @ScotGovBldgStds of primary legislation in 2003

Concept of fire and building safety life cycle isn’t a new one see paper circa 2007/8

3 things: Indian side did NOT have weapons & PLA knew this. They were prepared to kill. Impossible Indian soldiers on frontline will jump in river but will not use wpns for self defense. Someone LYING at highest level of authority. Gen Rawat & not Jaishankar should clarify 1/3
Since PLA too did not use weapons means China does not want escalation. But, its preparation to kill with stones etc shows leadership at high level knew & had approved of this act. Shows Lt Gen/Maj Gen June 6 meeting was not cordial. We should not have kept our boys unarmed 2/3
Analysts talking of limited war with PLA as option do not know its capabilities, they believe it is still 1962 (war in single land domain). Nothing called limited - war once joined decided by stronger party (PLA). With India’s preparedness, war will be national humiliation 3/3

I often question why I am expressing opinions on social media .? I am not a politician, just an ordinary everyday person ..But, I can put my hand up for my Children & Grandchildren to say .I did my upmost to challenge, change & make this world better for you .
I resolutely refuse to be complicit to #Tory Gov Economic Murder of vulnerable people, I tried hard to keep our magnificent #NHS for your future care & safety.
It is A Labour of Love & My Duty as a Mother Grand Parent & concerned Citizen of the #UK #Britain
I know I am not alone worrying about the sheer lack of real & decent #governance. The toxic level of #greed & #Corruption & Lack of Accountability ...& worst of all the disgrace of the #Tories #Media & #Press Blaming All their woes & shortcomings on Immigrants & Refugee's

Hello, from planet France! @SherylNYT I see from your bio that not only are you a dog lover, but you're interested in "creatures of the swamp". Well here's a twofer for you! Have you heard of Kato and Kleo in Connecticut?
@FreeKatoAndKleo desperately need more eyes on their situation. They did not maim or kill anyone. 6 YEARS held 23 hours a day in separate cages. Owner has gone bankrupt fighting through every level of the judicial system, trying to get them back home.
Someone opened fenced in gate and Kato & Kleo got out.  Over 30 people attacked them with bats, sticks, rocks and whatever they could get their hands on because they were frightened that they were going to harm a little girl--which they DID NOT. They were puppies at the time. 😔

Thread: While the world is shaken by the #murder of #Bulgarian journalist #ViktoriaMarinova, it might be a good time to talk about the country itself. #BG ranks lower in #PressFreedom than both #Hungary or #Poland. The country is the poorest and most corrupt in the #EU. 1/13
Yet, the #EU somehow does not think #Bulgaria is a big issue, due to the fact that PM (and ex-bodyguard of #Soviet General Secretary Todor Zhivkov) @BoykoBorissov "behaves", unlike #Orban and #Kaczyński, who openly challenge the Union. Borissov's party is also member of @EPP 2/13
#MediaFreedom-wise, 80% of the print media in the country is owned by MP #Peevski, whose pro-gov tabloids (with the generous help of other pro-gov actors who get nice rewards in return such as property #Blaskov) stifle #opposition and manage vast #antiEU smear campaigns 3/13
