Lord Frost negotiated and hailed the ‘brilliant deal’ he now says was ‘unfairly imposed on the UK’. It was a British idea. It was admittedly so bad we couldn’t even sell English sausages to Northern Ireland, but they all waved it at us with their flags for weeks on end. Sit down.
This pompous empty hoover bag now says that Putin got the upper hand because Britain ‘capitulated’ to Greta Thunberg, a proposition so utterly ridiculous it could become a Spectator article, and no doubt will. How do these people even dress themselves? #idiocracy
And this unelected non entity would like to lecture you on democracy and national sovereignty, and believes that having negotiated one of the worst deals in global diplomatic history he is now some expert on climate change and energy policy. My postman has more considered views.

Please enjoy this recently resurfaced video starring the MP that the voters of Beaconsfield chose over Dominic Grieve, and stop asking why this country is done.

Johnson has of course just appointed her as a PPS.

You’re welcome.
#ToryBritain #idiocracy
I really hope Nadine Dorries doesn’t now feel she needs to trump her colleague in some form to keep the PM’s attention. 😬
Yes, of course former B movie actors can be MPs. It’s just that the alternative was Dominic Grieve, who is a serious and knowledgeable person, who cares about things like laws and good governance, that sort of thing. This is the MP who wants a pic of the Queen in every house. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I’ve just watched some of the clips of Nadine Dorries ‘debating’ in Parliament today.

If you’ve put someone like that in charge of your nation’s culture you’ve basically conceded it no longer has one.

Truly pitiful.

Populism isn’t very popular.
They constantly purport to speak on behalf of the ordinary neglected silent British voter but the vast majority of ordinary neglected silent British voters want to be governed by anyone but the Tory Party. Our voting system is a total farce, a dark comedy of errors. #ToriesOut

Let's talk cybersecurity.

I seldom jump on the "Luddites vs. Tech" bandwagon because I wish to remain focused on alleviating #hysteria. This is why I only railed for things e.g. #heuristics: it slashed the fearmongering.

Here, though, we see a...

...human conflict dating back to when Paul wrote (dictated?) Romans 8:18-21.

Look, I get it: you want to save lives on the battlefield.

But that's from *your* perspective.

From an enemy's perspective, you want to improve your #KillRatio so you can conquer them...
Military leaders on ALL sides suffer an ages-old problem.

They once preferred bows & arrows over guns; then they preferred horse-drawn artillery over tanks; and now they prefer manned aircraft over drones.

"Cyber" to them is a soldier with a laser pointer guiding a JDAM...

Oh well at least Andrew Rosindell got the topic trending, just not in the way he hoped. #idiocracy

Good. The gammonati will totally lose it.
The people who are furious that the #Colston4 have been found not guilty are the same people who were delighted that Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty, which tells you all you need to know really. #BlackLivesMatter
Ah, here they come. A special tweet for all those who agree slavery is good. #idiocracy #colston4

Early indicators about the growth rate of #omicron and its potential to evade immunity are, well, not great frankly. You won’t read this expertise on your local Facebook secret Santa page so have a read of this, from someone who actually knows what he’s talking about. #WearAMask
Overheard at kids’ football this morning, a mum: “I read on Facebook that the media are just exaggerating this omicron thing for headlines, I think it’s fine personally’.

Sometimes I’m very close to the edge of losing my shit with someone. 😬😬😬 #idiocracy #WearAMask #COVID19
I felt like saying, ‘if virologists, epidemiologists and clinical experts all over the world don’t yet know how serious it is or isn’t, how do you?’

‘Masks are dehumanising’.

Drowned child refugees, not so much.

It’s going to be an exhausting week.
#MondayMood #WearAMask #GetVaccinated #covidiots
Just someone who is very angry with the air ambulance service for rudely trying to save someone’s life. Bet they won’t be wearing a mask. #idiocracy

Lots of people who don’t remotely mind terrified, freezing refugees drowning in the Channel will shortly appear here, incandescent with rage that they may be required to wear a piece of fabric over their nose & mouth for 15 mins when they’re in a shop.
#BrexitBritain #Omnicron
Someone just told me that their ancestors fought for their right not to comply with mask mandates, and now I want the earth to swallow me. 🤦🏻‍♂️ #covidiots #covidvariant #COVID19

It’s 20 years since I had to ask a PR firm to remove Priti Patel from the account of the conservation charity I was running because she was so rude to our junior staff, and I see she is still being uninvited to meetings even now she holds one of the great offices of state.

Unfortunately we have a government whose faux sadness at yesterday's tragedy is trumped by its serious consideration of jet skis, wave machines, and manoeuvres that could result in drowning, a policy so heinous that Border Force wants no part in it.

This isn't civilised policy.
You can’t just wang on about having a ‘returns’ policy, these are human beings not a fucking Amazon delivery. #idiocracy #Refugees #ToryShambles
The ‘all lives matter’ people mean ‘only all white lives matter’ and the many of the comments in this cesspit of toxicity today reveal their true views yet again.

Priti Patel’s brilliant scheme to attract the best minds in the world to global Britain is going, well, much as you’d expect.

Quite impressive how less than a decade after the 2012 Olympics we've moved from being quite a cool country that paraded its diversity, talent & public services before the world to having a PM who tells the UN about Kermit the Frog & lectures business leaders on Peppa Pig World.
Well, this is exactly what happens when you put a lazy, undisciplined, unprincipled journalist in charge of a G7 country isn’t it.
Top story. They’re waking up at last. #PeppaPig #JohnsonOut

Easiest deal in history, overseas aid 0.7% of GDP, 40 new hospitals, Northern Powerhouse Rail, HS2➡️Leeds, no tax rises, pensions triple lock, 350 million/week to NHS, boost for 🇬🇧 fishing, Erasmus scheme safe, EU citizens secure, no Irish Sea border.

All promised.

All broken.
Feel free to add others, they won’t all fit in 240 characters. #ToryBritain
And in many ways the most accidentally hilarious broken promise of all. #TorySewageParty #ToryShambles #idiocracy

So far the PM has made a speech about James Bond, done a car crash interview about cutting tax on domestic flights and new coal, fallen asleep, and announced he’s flying back to London tomorrow.

Planet saved.
#COP26  #COP26Glasgow #ClimateEmergency
Odd that a PM who took back control of all national legislation by leaving the EU can’t change the National Planning Policy Framework by law and ban all new U.K. coal, with his big majority isn’t it. Well it isn’t at all odd, because he can.#COP26Glasgow #cop26 #ClimateEmergency

Here’s the core of it. The question no one will face when they are prattling on about protests. “Do you know what a 2 degree temperature rise looks like and what it means for your children?”

He has no idea, and isn’t interested. The problem in a nutshell.
It’s such a problem this. People really have no idea of what is coming with the #ClimateCrisis, and sort of numbly switch off to it. When it really explodes (it’s already started), they will all say there wasn’t enough warning and more should have been done. 🤦🏻‍♂️ #ClimateEmergency
Someone just told me they've been waiting for climate change since they were 15 (which I assume was about 40 years ago) and nothing's changed in that time. I block all climate science deniers instantly, there is no time to waste on that shit.

Following allegations of Russian interference in our #BrexitBritain democratic processes, here’s ‘Rule Britannia’ cheekily re-imagined as a Russian romantic piece, complete with Soviet nostalgie colour scheme. 🇷🇺 🎼
#SundayThoughts #music #piano #sundayvibes #musicislife
I love the #StoolBritannia hashtag. 😂💩
There is possibly a series of Soviet treatments of popular #flagshagger 🇬🇧 tunes to be done actually.

Spätestens mit diesem #PublicityStunt hat sich #Scholz (derzeit noch geduldet von den #SPD-Vorsitzenden) endgültig disqualifiziert.
Mal sehen, wer dann ab morgen alles hungert/durstet, um etwaige religiöse/religionsähnl. "Ziele" medienwirksam im Kanzleramt vorzutragen. #Idiocracy
Hinzu kommt, dass die Hemmschwelle, sich als potentieller Märtyrer *darzustellen*, damit *deutlich* gesunken ist. Ein paar Tage ohne Essen/feste Nahrung und ein paar Stunden ohne Wasser/flüssige Nahrung hält mit Vorbereitung/Betreuung in der Ersten Welt fast *jeder Depp* durch.
Andererseits muss(!) man d. auch als Chance betrachten, Scholz nun moralisch u. Druck zu setzen. Um d. (gemeinsame) Sorgerecht streitende Väter und andere Gruppen, d. bislang *eiskalt* im Regen stehen gelassen wurden(!), werden derartg. Aktionen nun als Möglichkeit auffassen. 😡

"According to federal health officials, 99.5% of deaths from Covid-19 are now among the unvaccinated. That is a real testament to the power of the vaccines."

I'd say it's a real testament to the power of propaganda.

“The takeaway message remains, if you’re vaccinated, you are protected. You are not going to end up with severe disease, hospitalization or death.”—@celinegounder

"You cannot prove a vague theory wrong" —Richard Feynman Image
#Singapore:
-75% of Covid infections are in vaccinated people.
-75% of the population is vaccinated.
-The vaccines were claimed to have 94%-95% efficacy.

I guess that's just how math works? 🤔

Anyway, obviously #VaccinesWork! 🤪

White people telling non white people what the most appropriate gesture is or isn’t for them to take in order highlight injustice by white people against non white people is a perfect summary of the problem, frankly.
#racistengland #racism #idiocracy
If one of the critiques is that #TakeTheKnee is imported from America we should cancel most television, Halloween, Black Friday and about a billion other things too. Idiotic.
“If only black people could find a gesture against racism that we white people can unite behind it will be the end of the problem”, said no sentient being, ever. #racistengland
