Patel: "Today I have acted to proscribe #Hamas in its entirety."

Hamas will be banned in the UK under the Terrorism Act.

Anyone expressing support for Hamas, flying its flag or arranging meetings for the organisation would be in breach of the law, & could face years in prison.
Reminder: in 2018, Priti Patel was forced to step down as international development secretary after being summoned back from a trip to Africa after it emerged she failed to be candid about FOURTEEN unofficial meetings with Israeli ministers, businesspeople & a senior #lobbyist.
Canada, the EU, Israel, Japan, the UK & USA have designated Hamas as a terrorist organization.

Australia, NZ & Paraguay have designated only its military wing.

It is not considered a terrorist organization by Brazil, China, Egypt, Iran, Norway, Qatar, Russia, Syria & Turkey.

Ihr denkt, die #Grunen sind die Anti-Lobbyismus-Partei in #Deutschland? Leider falsch gedacht. Die Partei, die sich sonst gerne kritisch gegenüber #Lobbyismus zeigt, war und ist selbst auf vielen Ebenen mit ihm verstrickt, wie die folgenden Beispiele zeigen. /PN
Eveline #Lemke war Umweltministerin in #RLP. Nach nur einem Jahr wechselte sie in den #Aufsichtsrat einer Windkraftfirma. Als Ministerin förderte sie massiv den Bau von Windkraftanlagen. Hat der spätere Beruf die politischen Entscheidungen beeinflusst? /PN de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eveline_L…
Die #Grünen zählen zu den härtesten Nichtraucherschützern. Das hinderte Marianne #Tritz, Mitarbeiterin im Büro von Fritz #Kuhn im Jahr 2008nicht, direkt von den Grünen als Lobbyistin an die Spitze der Tabakindustrie zu wechseln. #GruenerLobbyismus welt.de/wirtschaft/art…

BREAKING: Judge dismiss House Oversight Dems lawsuit v. GSA for seeking info related to Trump Hotel DC lease for lack of standing. "The fact that a political remedy is hard to achieve does not automatically swing open the doors to the federal courts."
Rationale the judge applied reaching the afore-quoted conclusion seems—to this very non-lawyer—like it also could be applied to the 196 Senate and House Dems' emoluments lawsuit v. Trump too.*
