Before the #Brexit referendum, a lot of us were saying two things:

Firstly, that if the vote went Leave, all the government's focus would be on Brexit to the detriment of everything else.

Well, turns out we were right about that.
bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan…
We've got Tories blaming Sadiq Khan and Sadiq Khan blaming the Tory government and, all the while, the government is so fixated on moronic Brexit that they do nothing and people (especially in #London) and being killed at an alarming rate.
Secondly, we said that it would release a wave of suppressed anti-foreigner sentiment.

Well, lo and behold, the rates of racist incidents, particularly but not solely against eastern Europeans has sky rocketed.

THREAD 👉🏻 Things not addressed in Al Jazeera’s piece on Zionists, which itself reeks of antisemitism as I explain👇🏽:
1. Why #Qatar funded Al Jazeera is spying on US Jews on US soil.
2. Why AJ spent 1000s of $$$ throwing parties to get Jewish students drunk in order to smear them
3. Why pro-#BDS students are so obsessed with #Israel enough to run for student office just to demonize it.
4. Why Al Jazeera is so obsessed with Jews and actively promotes antisemitic conspiracy theories such as that Jews control the press and US government in this special.
5. Why they didn’t investigate the heavy foreign influence in BDS and the coordinated campaign against Israel.
6. Why SJP is whitewashed 4 their support for and associations w/ terrorism...as well as their well documented efforts to shut down free speech & harass Jewish students

This is Khashoggi Case False Narrative. #Khashoggi Relocated to #Turkey. He & his shady Turkish-Pakistani Partner (Arab Spring Operatives with Soros Fubding)With big $$$$$ Set Up NGO-Businesses Here. He bought a lavish flat in #Istanbul. Opened 3 hefty bank accounts. U Selling BS
How Do I Know All This You BS-Seller? I’ve been in #Turkey Reporting on #Khashoggi Case Since Day 1 via Pinned Thread @sibeledmonds (Check It Out). I have Top sources in #Turkey & within #US #Intel Community (Former & Present). And I contacted #Saudi Embassy in DC. You Selling BS

Great piece from @WilliamCraddick that I somehow missed. @DisobedientNews “reported in 2017 that [#China’s] 14K triad was working with local affiliates on the American West Coast to push out pro-#Taiwan’ese criminal interests and consolidate control.”
… I‘ve separately ID’d resellers of encrypted communications equipment from #China who are operating in #Mexico. I believe these resellers are likely selling these devices to the cartels. (That’s all I’ll say.) It makes sense since the “product” — #fentanyl — is #MadeInChina
… so would it surprise anybody if #China was arming #Mexico’s cartels? That assumption should probably be baked-in to our analyses. And let’s not forget that time the very Chinese (but #London-based) #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Corp. — #HSBC — laundered billion$ for the cartels.

Well done, @FoxNews. When there’s an issue with an ally, you were sure to book Rand Paul. He has a predetermined narrative for all things foreign policy - regardless of any development. His is a policy that would weaken America.
Rand Paul says we should never sell arms to any country unless it lessens the risk to the US and that selling arms to #SaudiArabia to use in #Yemen puts the US in greater risk. That is an absurd reading of the Middle East that demonstrates a lack of understanding.
Rand Paul said he’s furious over what Saudi Arabia did to #Khashoggi, claiming we should punish them on humanitarian grounds. But there’s never been a conflict or number of civilian casualties that he would support acting against, including selling weapons. It’s a double standard

It seems awfully convenient that #MagnitskyAct guy (& probable #EdmondSafra murderer-hirer) @BillBrowder & many of his neocon playthings — like @LindseyGrahamSC — are trying to pin this on Crown Prince #MBS. I smell a shakedown. Bad thing for #HumanRights when only money matters.
… one thing that people don’t realize about #Magnitsky & the #MagnitskyAct is that there’s no more crucial hub of state-sanctioned money laundering than @TheJusticeDept’s @SDNYnews. That’s where Wall St. is (& all the #FININT collection that goes w/ it).
… it’s important to understand #Browder’s connections to the #London-based #HongKong #Shanghai Banking Company — #HSBC — a bank heavily dependent on Communist #China which functions as his private #laudromat. The #Khashoggi case takes the focus off them.

Okay. History time!

You've probably seen photos of Commonwealth war cemeteries, with rows of white graves. They're heartbreaking images.

What you DON'T see are the thousands of small, tragic stories on each gravestone.

So I'm going to share some with you here. /1 #history #WW1
These stories exist because although every stone is similar, family members were able to pay to have a small, custom inscription made on each stone.

Which is why on Pvt J Low's grave you'll find this desperately sad inscription:

"Until we meet again. Mother." /2
Of course, the ABSENCE of anything is even sadder. Too often you'll see the nine saddest words in the English language:

"A soldier of the Great War. Known only unto God"

Those words appear when we know a body is there but not who. It was Rudyard Kipling who came up with them /3

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

In order to truly understand the dynamic inside the #Syrian Armed Opposition, one must start to look into the ever closer marriage between the the Moslem Brotherhood and Nusra / al-Qaeda. Both have been joined at the hip through the sponsorship & support of #Qatar #Turkey ==>
2-Moslem Brotherhood (MB) lost its original military wing during the battle with the Syrian State in the 80’s. Best to think of Nusra/HTS/al-Qaeda in #Syria today as the new military wing of the M Brotherhood. One is the brain, the other represents arms & legs of the same body
3-The coordination between MB & Nusra/HTS/al-Qaeda has afforded the latter the chance to transform itself from non-state actor that had been hiding in the mountains of Afghanistan to an outfit with clear lines of communications to regional capitals that are supporting the MB

1)I don't have too many followers but I would appreciate if you could RT.

My Great Uncle Eion passed away a fortnight ago, when sorting his things we found his #WW2 diary. From 17yo he fought across Europe and Africa. A true #British hero who gave my generation lasting #peace.
2) Jan 27th was the first time he was wounded. Less than a year after joining the Para's.

By the end of April he was on the front lines at the infamous battle for Monte Cassino. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of…
3) I've been told by those who have served in different branches of the military that one of the toughest things they have to deal with is when the promise of being relieved from the front line is cancelled. It happened to my Uncle. A lot.

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

1/ I visited #London for the first time in many years earlier this month. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the city. Here are a few random thoughts:
2/ The weather was amazing, there’s really nothing better than summer in Europe. I’m sure I wouldn’t have such a positive impression if it wasn’t for all the sunshine.
/3 Loved the architecture in the centre: The City & Borough both have an incredible mix of classical, old British, and modern architecture.

Trump does a 180 on criticism of May, praises her in UK presser. Then: I'll ask Putin about meddling. I don't expect a Perry Mason 'I did it' moment. I'm not going into Putin mtg w/ high expectations. The rigged witch hunt makes it very hard to have a good relationship w/ Russia.
What an embarrassment for America, this incompetent coward. Trump cried "fake news"—unable to face his own words criticizing May just y'day! And he's unable to articulate a coherent policy on anything. GOP will NEVER live down this dangerous fool. Thank you, #London—woke AND lit!
🤯Trump blamed Obama—NOT PUTIN—for Russia annexing Crimea. So how do you think summit will go? Putin pushes Trump's anti-O buttons, massages his grievances, commiserates as metoo victim of US deep state conspiracy. Trump can't just walk back a disaster w/ Putin like he did w/ May

At the 2014 #TetZooCon - that's the first one ever - I spoke about Speculative Zoology, or Speculative Evolution, or whatever. And here I'm going to tweet some of what I said... The cover slide shows awesome #Squamozoic art by @alaskanime plus a Night stalker and a .. a.. well..
Evolution is real and animals have a past; therefore they also have a future, something we can take seriously. And many authors have... #TetZooCon
There's already a whole genre of 'alternative history' fiction, variously called AH, allohistory or Uchronia. Ideas about alternative or parallel timelines. And the idea is in mainstream fiction... #TetZooCon

Okay. Scanning through mentions. Lots of questions about the "15th July Timetable"

So let's take a look at what that really means (vs how it's being 'sold' in some quarters) #thameslink #rail #london /1
So let's get one thing straight up front:

The July timetable ISN'T about providing more services overall.

It's about formalising one that frees up GTR to resume driver training again, with the LEAST risk of disruption. /2
So if you think (or have been told) that it means you're getting YOUR train back: well... sorry. probably not.

If it's not in the timetable already (even if it's always showing 'CANCELLED') then you probably ain't getting it back /3

Okay. This needs a thread. It relies on a mis-understanding of the causes of the issues. BUT ALSO gives a fascinating bit of insight into Grayling himself.

Let's talk about how Grayling's weird obsession with never being wrong is screwing the DfT... #thameslink #rail #london /1
So firstly: the practicalities. This is the thread that triggered this. Read it first: short version is that DfT blew their chance to revoke GTR on performance back in April. By trying to be clever and fucking it up. /2
Now moving on to the "incompetence" charge. The problem is that the premise is flawed. Because it relies entirely on Grayling's insistence that the timetable is the SOLE responsibility of GTR, Network Rail and... well... anyone who isn't him. /3

Okay people. Repeat after me:

STRIPPING GTR OF ITS FRANCHISE IS NOT A VIABLE THREAT.

Why? Because the DfT tried to be clever back in 2017 and shot themselves in the foot. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Read on... #rail #london #thameslinkfail /1
So. Important thing to remember: The GTR Franchise ISN'T just Thameslink. It's Southern (and bits) as well, all coming together in what was meant to be a super-franchise. /2
Now - if y'all remember - that Southern (and to a lesser extent Thameslink) parts of the network were ALSO a massive clusterf*ck shortly after GTR took over - because of the issue of Driver Only Operation. /3
