Sad & disappointed but not surprised to discover #Manchester City Council have adopted the controversial #Islamophobia term. Campaign pushed by orgs & individuals who believe in and practise sex segregation. Would they do the same for those who believed in segregation by race?
Please read @MaryamNamazie excellent piece sister-hood.com/maryam-namazie… on how BME women, minorities and anyone who dares to question regressive Islamic institutions/cultural/religious practices can be targeted under this definition #Manchester
An open letter from @CEMB_forum to the Home Secretary on the threat to civil liberties. Many ex-muslims face threats, abuse and even death because they dare to leave Islam. Guess that's not an issue for Cllrs to concern themselves with...

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

Excellent @RehmanYasmin
Hate protests, mega phones, moody background guys, mans & vans at #andertonpark sch right now. On Jumma. In Ramzan-A period of internal reflection. This isn't ordinary Muslims practising faith. This is political Islamism on a cul de sac near you. #Islam
@BrumLeader @WMPolice @DamianHinds @educationgovuk @UKLabour Do you think your collective lack of leadership is emboldening far right religious fascism or helping community cohesion? #SRE
What I am pondering is this a reflection on how segregated #Birmingham is? Massive lgbt/left liberal middle class literally down the road. Why are they SO silent? Won't get away with this hate in #Manchester The young people I know would run them out of town.

Quick thread about the local elections, @UKLabour, #Brexit and that awful letter signed by my Labour MP and 24 others. To cut a long story short, the Labour canvassers are so furious at @MikeKaneMP that one of them did this: ripped his picture off the calling card.
Apparently these poor activists have had enormous difficulty on the doorstep because of the parliamentary party's support for #ToryBrexit and @MikeKaneMP's betrayal of Labour ideals by signing this letter. 2/n
These two local @UKLabour activists were just as furious as me about Labour's outrageous position of attempting to push through the right-wing coup that is #Brexit, despite Labour's previous promises to protect jobs and prosperity (remember the 6 tests?)

In my latest thread on #LabourAntisemitism I wanted to look at the personal impact of it.

We concentrate on the statistics, how the Jewish community overall feels, the processes and the challenges.

This is worthy, but let's remember the impact on so many Jewish individuals. /1
I am going to tell the story about my personal heartbreak over #LabourAntisemitism through the story of my life. The story of a proud Brit and a proud Jew, who has friends in all communities and does his best to contribute to this country. /2
We start at the beginning. I was born on May 6th 1990 in Jersey Farm, St Albans. I am the son of a Solicitor and Pharmacist who were active in St Albans Masorti Synagogue.

We were typical middle class family. /3

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
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.

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

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.
2/July 2016 #StopBrexit march in #London

1) Why am I, a remainer from Kent, putting all my energy into the #GreatNorthernMarch, rather than just getting on with activities in my own region?
It's because we need to mobilise the North to win this fight against Brexit. The north is where Brexit can and will be stopped.
2) If it were just about passion, I’d be going to Maidenhead on 24 March – to shout at Theresa May and wave a flag. But passion itself is going to get us nowhere. We need strategy to succeed. And the North is the place where we can best turn the tide.
3) The great cities of the North voted remain – the people of #Manchester, #Leeds, #Liverpool and #York knew what was and still is in their best interest. They all have strong groups: @Mcr4eu, @leedseurope, @Liverpool4EU and @York4EU who go on the streets and keep up the fight.

Download @Chris_Boardman's #MadeToMoveGM report from: greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/download/downl…
View the press release at: greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/news/article/2…
It's time to get #GMMoving, with (much) more #walking and #cycling!
Excellent mission statement from @greatermcr #cycling and #walking commissioner @Chris_Boardman:
"Riding a bicycle or crossing a street should not require bravery."
Indeed.
What does @Chris_Boardman's #MadeToMoveGM report mean for the everyday driver?

"Even drivers will benefit, as more #cycling and #walking takes short journeys off the roads, reducing congestion for those who are reliant on a vehicle for work."

What are we waiting for?

Onwards!
