According to the chief of the London Fire Brigade (@LondonFire), large groups of firefighters could be fired if they are discovered to have bullied others or displayed racism, misogyny, or homophobia. #Fire #Firefighters #UK #London #Social Image
An independent culture review found that the fire service has "dangerous levels of ingrained prejudice against women" and that colleagues from minority backgrounds are "frequently the target of racist abuse."
It includes accounts of everything from women being groped to people having their helmets filled with urine, and is led by Nazir Afzal, a former chief crown prosecutor for the North West.

ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ದೇಶಭಕ್ತರೆ ಟಿಪ್ಪುವಿನ ಮೈಸೂರ್ ಹುಲಿ ಅನ್ನೋ ಬಿರುದಿನ ಹಿಂದೆ ಇರುವ ವೀರ ಧೀರ ಕಟ್ಟು ಕಥೆ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಲು ಒಂದು ಸಣ್ಣ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ. ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಓದಿ 🙏🏻

1799 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಬ್ರಿಟೀಷರು ಟಿಪ್ಪುವನ್ನು ಕೊಂದು ಶ್ರಿರಂಗಪಟ್ಟಣದ ಒಳಹೊಕ್ಕಿದ್ದರಷ್ಟೇ. ಒಳಹೋದ ಬ್ರಿಟೀಷರು ಒಮ್ಮೆಲೆ ದಂಗಾಗಿಹೋದರು. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿ

ನೋಡಿದರೂ ಪಟ್ಟೆಪಟ್ಟೆ ಹುಲಿಯ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು. ಸೈನಿಕರ ಸಮವಸ್ತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲಿ, ಕುರ್ಚಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲಿ, ಮೇಜಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲಿ, ಕಂಬದಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲಿ, ಧ್ವಜದಲ್ಲಿ ಹುಲಿ. ಅವೆಲ್ಲಕ್ಕೂ ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗಿ ಬ್ರಿಟೀಷರ ಮನಸ್ಸನ್ನು ಸೆಳೆದಿದ್ದು ಈ “ಆಟಿಕೆ ಹುಲಿ”. ಅದೊಂದು ಕೃತಕ ಲೋಹದ ಹುಲಿ. ಪ್ರೆಂಚ್ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ಸ್ನೇಹದ


ಕುರುಹಾಗಿ ಅದನ್ನು ಟಿಪ್ಪುವಿಗೆ ಉಡುಗೋರೆಯಾಗಿ ನೀಡಿದ್ದರು. ಅದು ಬ್ರಿಟೀಷ್ ಸೈನಿಕನ ಸಮವಸ್ತ್ರವನ್ನು ಧರಿಸಿದ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ಕೆಡವಿಕೊಂಡಿತ್ತು. ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಕೀಲಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟರೆ ಹುಲಿ ಗುರ್ರೆನ್ನುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಆ ಬ್ರಿಟಿಷ್ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಯ ಮೈ ಪರಚಿ, ಕಚ್ಚುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಇದನ್ನು ನೋಡುತ್ತಾ ಟಿಪ್ಪು ಖುಷಿ ಪಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದ. ಇದ್ಯಾವ ಪೌರುಷ?

Saturday 5 November - Day 255 of daily threads.

Every single day, reporting the truth, cutting the waffle, on #Russia's war of choice on #Ukraine.

Updated "live" so check back, scroll though and share!

Coming up 🇬🇧🇺🇦 partnership, assassination attempt and landmark 🇷🇺losses...
A few people miss some things from the day before and find it handy to have a link to the previous thread, which is why I post it each day.

#StopRussia #StandWithUkraine

#UK has long supported #Ukraine, and not only with weapons - maybe it's to make up for guilt over the Budapest Memorandum letdown!

Today the Ministry of Defence will again be helping in a more unseen way:

#London is the main target

9 minutes
In just 9 minutes after launch, a hypersonic thermonuclear missile can erase London.

There is nothing NATO could do to stop a hypersonic missile.
“But #Nato will strike back!”
And risk Berlin, Paris, and Brussels in the next 9m? Image
Why nuking the UK?

The Casus Belli is clear.
The UK is directly involved in attacks on Russia, including Nord Stream, Crimea bridge, and Sevastopol.

As @KimDotcom stated, Liz Truss's phone was hacked, Russia has enough evidence. ImageImage

Why nuking the UK?

1. It’s not secret that UK it’s the most hated nation behind US.

2. UK strike-back capabilities are poor, 4 old Vanguard submarines, only one deployed (10 years beyond their expected operational life), carrying 30-years-old Trident missiles. ImageImageImage

Heute vor 112 Jahren, am 30. Oktober 1910, stirbt Henri #Dunant - ein legendärer Menschenfreund, der aber fast schon zu Lebzeiten in Vergessenheit geraten wäre.

Über sein grandioses Lebenswerk erzähle ich euch im folgenden 🧵. Viel Spaß! 1/15

#OnThisDay #History #Geschichte Fotografie von Henri Dunant in seinen späteren Lebensjahren
Schon in jungen Jahren widmet der 1828 geborene Dunant sich karitativen Aufgaben. Nachdem er wegen schlechter Noten vom Gymnasium fliegt, beginnt er mit 24 eine Banklehre. Im gleichen Jahr 1852 gründet er den "Christlichen Verein Junger Männer" (#CVJM). 2/15
Dunant will als Geschäftsmann in #Algerien durchstarten. Doch es gibt Probleme mit den französischen Kolonialbehörden. Pragmatisch wie er ist, will er 1859 den französischen Kaiser #Napoleon III. um Hilfe bitten.3/15

It is not often that #Hindus congregate in such large numbers. The fear of ethnic cleansing in #LeicesterCity has scarred the highly educated & professional community. 2/m

Biased coverage by the #Western mainstream #media is leading to hate crime against #Indians. Incidents have been reported in the #UK #USA #Canada where Hindus have been attacked.

WATCH: #BNNUK Reports.

Environmental activists from @JustStop_Oil threw tomato soup over Vincent van Gogh’s iconic Sunflowers painting hanging in London’s National Gallery and glued themselves to the gallery wall below the painting. #London #Protest
@JustStop_Oil’s activists explain their action saying “What is worth more, art or life? … are you more concerned about the protection of a painting or the protection of our planet and people?”
‘‘The cost of living crisis is part of the cost of oil crisis. Fuel is unaffordable to millions of cold hungry families. ‘They can’t even afford to heat a tin of soup,’ they added, waving a can of Heinz tomato soup.
