Pretty disappointed with how #TheBusiness portrayed me. I told a much larger story than this, and though it is well summed up with an angst around affordability that doesn’t go away, including rent, petrol, food, essentials (not mentioned) it was so much more than that. #auspol
There was no mention of the #RoyMorgan #unemployment statistic of 8.5%, nor that the ABS figure of 4% is fanciful in not counting anyone as unemployed who works just one hour a week, or has weeks off having worked in the gig economy, or who is sick, injured, etc. #auspol
That employees are working those #jobs created by the need to clean up after the recent #floods. That right now employment going down - is to be expected - as the #casual labour market has soaked up the extra workers needed and under and unemployed people have stepped up. #auspol

A thread about drug smuggling, the British Empire, and the ways in which historical wrongdoing by the Establishment persists into the present day. 🧐🧵🌳🍃🍂⛓ #EstablishmentPsychopathy #history #ToriesOut #OpiumWar #ColonialViolence
It’s generally well known that the Opium Wars of the mid nineteenth century were launched by Britain against China in order to benefit British drug smugglers… 🤨🇬🇧🇨🇳 #OpiumWars #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China
After all, even the National Army Museum – not typically regarded as a bastion of anti-Establishment lefties – states this frankly in its displays on the Opium Wars. #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China

Hard to say how disappointed I am In the @STLCounty council . As
..a physician

..a mom whose kids nearly died from #COVID #MISC

..someone too familiar with the consequences of #PoliticsInPublicHealth

As a CMO that has to send people home to quarantine
#WhatAShame
#Growup
There’s more

.. The wife on an ICU doctor busting it, risking lots to save the unvaccinated & unmasked

.. a scientist and steward of public health

.. a constituant of the county

.. a peer reviewer of new scientific literature
.. a HUMAN BEING who thinks we need a little more in everyone’s interest and less of the “me me me”

What an interesting time we live in

To know that folks would refuse a mask even to save the masses, hell- even if it only saved a few…. And for what ? Political points

1/ "The entire audience was white and casually well-dressed"

~Greg Pritchard, describing his first experience of @WillowCreekCC in 1983, in his 1995 book "Willow Creek Seeker Services", Chapter 1.
2/ "Credibility: Hybels seeks to be a reliable & trusted friend to a visiting unchurched Harry. He wants to be honest & sincere & show genuine affection for Harry. See chapter 8."

~Greg Pritchard, who I guess had the wool pretty much pulled over his eyes, in "WCSS"
3/ "An ironic Willow Creek Proverb expresses this same idea: 'Exhaustion in next to Godliness'"

~Greg Pritchard, "Willow Creek Seeker Services", Chapter 2.

Peaceful revolution in the UK: some personal thoughts on the need for #SystemChange and the potential for making it happen. [thread] 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove #JohnsonMustGo
In the wake of the #RussiaReport ⬇️ & the ongoing #COVID19 & #ToryCorruption scandals, there has been a noticeable increase in talk about protest against this obviously compromised “government”… 😠✊🌹🇪🇺 #resist #revolt #remove
For many, the flagrant corruption of the new “honours” list feels like the last straw. We can let this anger & stress gnaw at us, or we can harness it against these disgraceful crooks… 😖✊🌹🇪🇺#ToryCorruption #ToryTraitors #resist #revolt #remove

Establishment Psychopathy: a selection of evidence setting out some of the ways in which colonial violence & structural racism continue to privilege our “ruling class”... [thread of threads] 🧐✊🌹🇪🇺 #ColonialViolence #BritishEmpire #ReparationsNow #BlackLivesMatter Image
The magnificent #BlackLivesMatter protests are proof of structural racism around the world... This thread ⬇️ shows how the UK Establishment still benefits from slave money, and why it will ALWAYS resist a proper discussion of #history. 😖✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #Slavery #RhodesMustFall
Colonial wrongdoing was often rewarded with wealth and a peerage… Our ludicrous system means that this chap #Trenchard ⬇️ gets to make our laws in part because his grandfather liked to burn villages in #Nigeria. 😧✊🌹🇪🇺🇳🇬 #SystemChange #ToriesOut #COVID19

A thread about Establishment wealth, reparations, & why the Tories will *always* defend the statues of slavers & Empire racists… 🤨✊🌹🇪🇺 #Colston #reparations #ColonialViolence #resist #slavery #BlackLivesMatter
This chap is Richard Drax, Tory MP for South Dorset since 2010. His full name is Richard Grosvenor Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax, and he comes from a long line of Tory MPs and other assorted Establishment figures over the centuries. 😋✊🌹🇪🇺 #Drax #ScroogeMcDuck
He owns c14,000 acres of Dorset, making him the largest private landowner in the county. Pic shows his country seat, Charborough House. 🧐 #NiceGaff #Dorset #CountryLife

A thread about Scotland, solidarity against dictatorship, and the connection between Chilean fascism and the disaster of Brexit. 🧐✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱#NaePasaran #StopFascism #Brexit #ToriesOut #solidarity #history
I recently saw the extraordinary film “Nae Pasaran”, a powerful, deeply moving story of Scottish workers standing up to the fascist dictatorship in Chile in the 1970s… 🤓✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳🇨🇱 #NaePasaran #StopFascism #solidarity #Scotland #Chile @debasersfilms @naepasaran
One day in March 1974, an engineer at the Rolls Royce plant in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, noticed that there were Chilean aircraft engines in the production line, waiting to be refurbished. They were from Hawker Hunter jets owned by the Chilean Air Force. 😀✊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇻🇳 #Scotland

A short thread on whether the honking great bellend @BorisJohnson can reasonably be called “a fascist”… 😖✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #BellendusMaximus #CummingsOut #FatbergOfDishonesty
I have often posted about the creeping fascism ⬇️ in the Cummings/Johnson regime, & attracted much ridicule from unthinking Brexity types. They are keen to avoid inconvenient factual analysis... 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #StopFascism #ToriesOut
Do I therefore think @BorisJohnson is “a fascist”..? No, he’s too uninterested in ideas to maintain any kind of ideology, even a lunatic one… Moreover, literally his only concern in life is *himself*. 😖

A short thread on Tory rotter Cecil Parkinson, illustrating why the Conservative Party must be *destroyed* to save the country… (pic shows him with Mrs Fascister in 1983). 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #cad #ToriesLie #COVID19 #Parkinson #rotter #ToryShambles
Parkinson was a chartered accountant, and made a pile of money from establishing Parkinson-Hart Securities in 1961. He then entered Parliament in 1970; a normal career path for a Tory obsessed with money & power… 🙄 #ToriesOut #greed #gross 🇪🇺🇻🇳
As is extremely well-known, Parkinson had an affair with Sara Keays, his secretary in Parliament. He resigned his Cabinet post in October 1983, when news of her pregnancy became public. 😐✊🇻🇳🇪🇺 #ToriesOut #hypocrites #liars #ToryShambles

A short thread on Tory loon Gerald Howarth, former MP for #Aldershot, summarising his comprehensive awfulness. 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳🦠 #ToriesOut #ToriesKill #COVID19 #ToryGenocide
Young Gerald showed an early desire to be on the wrong side of history, joining the Conservative Party in 1964 while still a teenager. In that year, the Tories were busy conducting one of the most racist election campaigns ever 😖✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ToriesOut #racism

theguardian.com/world/2014/oct…
In March 1968, while millions of young people around the world protested against US violence in Vietnam, Howarth attended the famous Grosvenor Square demo to protest IN FAVOUR of the war… 😮✊🇪🇺🇻🇳 #ffs #ToriesOut #Vietnam

A thread about the English Establishment, state psychopathy, #COVID19… and why it really matters how people in power think. 🧐✊🇪🇺🇻🇳#history #ToriesOut #resist 🦠
The popular idea of a colonial official during the British Empire days was of a paternal figure dispensing justice and spreading civilisation, as in the 1935 film “Sanders of the River” (see pic), a grossly patronising tale set in colonial #Nigeria... 😬🇳🇬 #BritishEmpire #Korda
The reality was, of course, very different. Consider the work of Charles Callwell, a British soldier with much colonial experience, pictured here on the WWI Caucasus Front as a Major-General in 1916. #Callwell #SmallWars #ColonialViolence 🇹🇷🇷🇺

A thread about #COVID19, colonial violence, and how the English class system is wrecking the country. 🧐✊🇪🇺#coronavirus #ToriesOut #history #SystemChange #JohnsonMustGo 🦠
This chap is Hugh Trenchard, or “viscount” Trenchard*, a Tory member of the House of the Lords… 🤨🇪🇺 #ToriesOut

*footnote: I don’t recognise titles for living people, having abolished the honours system. I use them for historical personages, for the avoidance of confusion…
Being a reliable Tory footsoldier, naturally Trenchard has offered his “strong support” to Boris Johnson for his handling of the #coronavirus emergency… 😖✊🇪🇺🦠 #resist #liars #COVID19 #ToriesOut #ToryShambles

A thread tweeting quotes from "The Power of a Whisper" (TPOAW), by unrepentant sexual predator, bully, and con-man Bill Hybels, who is still being protected by @GLNsummit & @WillowCreekCC
@GLNsummit @WillowCreekCC 2/ Dedication Page: "To @DickDeVos & Betsy, & Ron & Sharon VanderPol--Only on the other side will the four of you know how much your friendship & support have meant to the Hybels family & to the global Willow family"

3/ I note that @glnsummit board chairman billionaire Dick Devos, to whom Bill dedicated this book, has overseen Global Leadership Network's ongoing cover-up of Bill Hybels' sexual crimes since 2014.

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989, at least 4 years into his sexual assault & harassment of multiple parishioners and employees
2/ " 'The Myth of the Greener Grass' answered many of the questions I had been struggling to answer on the subject of adultery: What causes affairs?"

3/ "In fact in the Old Testament, under Mosaic Law, anyone caught in adultery received the death penalty."
