UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “tempting evil” with his statements about the training of Ukrainian troops abroad amid the conflict with Russia, Polish General Waldemar Skrzypczak, who advises the defense minister, said on Friday.
During a visit to India earlier this week, Johnson told journalists that “we are currently training Ukrainians in Poland in the use of anti-aircraft defense, and actually in the UK in the use of armored vehicles.”
Skrzypczak, who headed one of the multinational divisions in Iraq in the mid-2000s, told Polish newspaper Fakt that “when we were on missions abroad it was hard to imagine that one of the politicians would talk about our plans or training on television.”

Last week, the UK announced that it was eliminating all remaining tariffs and quotas on Ukrainian imports - something it was able to do because of Brexit. The reaction from Europhiles, and even some EU officials, has been telling - and not in a good way. A thread. 🧵 (1/9)
Background. In 2014, Ukraine and the EU (then of course including Britain) signed a deal eliminating most tariffs, but leaving some in place, especially in agri-foods. Britain inherited this deal on leaving. The remaining tariff schedules are here.… (2/9)
Since the Russian invasion, Kiev has been lobbying London and Brussels for the removal of the last tariffs and an easing of the more stringent border checks. This matters a lot, because Ukraine has lost its coastline. All its exports must now pass through EU territory. (3/9)

In windy west Wales, the internet is playing fun and games. The digital protest from here is going to be screenshots of people's reasons for not voting Tory. Our words are powerful, our voices are powerful #TakeBackDemocracy #UnitedAgainstJohnson @SkiptomyLoulou @BlokeOnWheels

You want to know why I'm so intent on seeing #Johnson face accountability?

Back in 2020 my aunt fell Ill with Covid. She was a kind, sweet and incredibly generous woman who helped raise me. She always had a cheeky smile and didn't have a single malicious bone in her body.
She died, alone in a hospital. No family or friends allowed to be with her in her final moments. There was hardly anyone at her funeral. Again, gatherings for such weren't permitted. The rules at the time, of course, to prevent the spread of Covid.
Meanwhile, those very people creating said rules were holding parties, believing themselves above the rules that we - the little people had to abide by - did not apply to them. While my aunt died alone, they were getting drunk. "Ambushed by a cake".

There is no government.

Everyone in it is dealing full time with either bullying or blackmailing, being bullied or blackmailed, or denying there’s any bullying or blackmailing.

This isn’t how you run a country facing vast challenges, mostly created by the very same people.
No EU countries are currently dealing with endless allegations about or formal enquiries into their governments’ lockdown breaking drunken antics. We look so bloody awful. Again. This regime has totally demolished our reputation as a serious nation. #JohnsonOut #JohnsonMustGo

My god. They’ve now managed to create an even bigger scandal. This is huge. Really huge.
#JohnsonMustGo #JohnsonOut
This MP is a Brexiteer too, not exactly some left wing Tory rebel. Asks colleagues to go to the Police. Incredible.
A Tory committee chair asking his own colleagues to report his party to the police over blackmail and intimidation, would you like a different government yet?

Ending life-saving restrictions to protect your own income, power, and privilege is not "in the public interest." It is a transparent abuse of trauma and trust akin to a cult leader. You broke the rules, so now you're removing them for applause


pls rt
I am no proctologist but even I can see why Johnson is a problem.

‘Sir Gavin Williamson’ may be the funniest thing since they made Baldrick a lord by mistake.

We are being led by clowns. 🤡
#JohnsonOut #ToriesUnfitToGovern
‘Sir Gavin’.

Clownland, honestly, it is.
To be fair, in the case of Dowden I can actually believe this - he couldn’t find his way out of a paper bag.

🚨🧵| #𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘆𝗚𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗱! Institutional rule breaking, deceit & integrity "for hire":

Like an episode of Game of Thrones (with notably more incest) this #DowningStParty scandal has engulfed the @Conservatives - rightly so. But what of the institutions & players?
How have we come to a point where it is the Public that must force the truth & gather the evidence? @BorisJohnson's plausible deniability is all but out the window at this point. Everyone he leans on appears to willingly sign their own career ending/reputation destroying role.
Lord Geidt, Simon Case & even @SueGrayCO are all pieces in this game. The board is set, the pieces are moving - except now, thanks to the work of @PippaCrerar @PaulBrandITV & @GoodLawProject we have a good idea of the Governments play. This surely makes it impossible for these

There is no way Tory associations will tolerate this latest twist. No way at all. #JohnsonMustGo
It doesn’t matter whether he was at this one or not (he was at enough others). It’s the rotten culture from top to bottom, carved in his image. Goodbye.
At least there will be a finally be a new biography of Shakespeare out for Christmas. #JohnsonOut

🚨🌐| NEW!!! Worth noting Tory MPs sent out to defend the PM in the last 12 hrs (Zahawi & Lewis) have been lawyer advised to use the 'MensRea' defence. To to claim you had "no mental intention or awareness" you were at a party & to accuse others of having the wrong "perception". Image
Along with the coordinated confident flurry of tweets from his cabinet last night reminding people to wait for results of @SueGrayCO investigation which will inevitably likely exonerate Johnson just as Lord Geidt did. Integrity of all around Johnson is questioned. #r4today #PMQs

Part 1
Oliver Cromwell's speech of 1653 is appropriate:
'It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,
which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.
Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.
Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you?
Is there one vice you do not possess?
Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

I’d like a PM who comes to Parliament to present a weekly vision and progress report, not a weekly half-hearted apology for insulting the country’s intelligence.
#JohnsonOut #BorisResign
The gaslighting ‘line to take’ has become that the lockdown rules had all become far too complicated. But they weren’t, they were very clear and simple, which was why the breaking of them is so blindingly easy to spot. Bringing booze to an outdoor event at work wasn’t allowed.
When your last line of defence comes from a deranged colleague famous for blocking legislation to ban up-skirting and to protect girls from female genital mutilation, it’s probably time to leave public office and go and write your Shakespeare book. #JohnsonOut #JohnsonMustGo

Keir Stamer is completely fit for the office Johnson has tarnished. Sooner the better. @Keir_Starmer

He may well say people were working v hard, the garden was a place of work, it was extraordinary times. But you won’t find any exhausted, devastated #NHS staff who were on their knees organising ‘bring your own’ parties at their places of work. So that line won’t wash.#JohnsonOut
I have just written to my MP @GregClarkMP asking for his views on the PM’s suitability to remain in office and look forward to his reply. #JohnsonMustGo

I am willing to bet Johnson has finally broken the support of a lot of his backbench MP's now.

I imagine the 1922 committee will be being flooded with letters of no confidence in him

I would predict that this will be his downfall - #JohnsonOut will be enacted, but by the Tories
My predictions are, at best 50% correct (and usually worse than that).

I would say though, that every single cabinet member has supported & enabled him.

And urge all to remember that.

He will not go in cuffs, he will go at The Party's choosing

But he must not be the only one.
This though, is not a good situation.

It does mean that, in effect, the leader of the Conservative party & those appointed by him are above the laws.

Laws which are on behalf of the Monarch (Lawyers, correct me if I am wrong).

If you’re Prime Minister and you’ve told people the rules are so strict you can’t even visit a dying relative but you then go to a bring your own wine party of 100 people, I’m afraid you can’t be the Prime Minister anymore. It’s that simple.
#JohnsonOut #JohnsonOutNow #ToryLies
Completely unacceptable and the public simply won’t tolerate this nonsense anymore. #JohnsonOut #ToryLies
So far this doesn’t fill me with much confidence given the recent history. Why would a Dame enobled with a peerage and a contract recently extended investigate the very patrons of her privilege?

I know 1000's of you want #JohnsonOut and probably #JohnsonOutToday but I'm a little fearful of that.

Here's why...
The next person potentially in leadership may not be as inept, may be better liked, may be perceived as doing a "better job" and in the 2 years we have until (1)
we're supposedly allowed to have an election things can dramatically change.
Here is a government so hell bent on seizing control they've used a pandemic to do so. To pass laws through in the guise of "safety" or for the good of the people.
There's nothing of benefit to us.(2)
I'll not be surprised if somehow they go full on fascist and pass a bill to say that an election cannot be called unless it's by them.
We are teetering on the edge, no, in free fall towards Autocracy.

why has army been called in to vaccinate,
drive ambulances
& HGVs

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

Scientific Racism
Nazi Eugenics (currently happening under the guise of COVID in my opinion - in plain sight) Image
we desperately need to rid ourselves of the current govt & cabinet. They are platforming and employing academic KKK! FFS... Image
yesterday I complained about BOJO's xmas message re boosters for Christians, as earlier in the day the media reported how the Pakistani community is less than 55% vaccinated, today I read this:…
