A day in politics can be very loooooooooooong!

It is now 'CRYSTAL CLEAR' why #May appeared to overuse this phrase when speaking - it was to check NOT the IQ but the EQ of the audience!

One assumes all parties present are adults since this is a pre-requisite to be a politician!
"Angry… but it’s a strange situation where the First Minister is effectively arguing that reporters and politicians are stupid for taking what she says at face value, and even more stupid if they ask for clarification later."

Seems 'crystal clear' to me!!
All would be 'crystal clear' if audience really listened and asked pertinent questions on content of conferences when given chance to do so, instead of playing infantile party politics or chasing tomorrow's headlines!

LIFE is deadly serious NOT a continuous political campaign!

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2021/04/26/bri…
From #Leveson to #Brexit, phone-hacking to #CambridgeAnalytica, Peter Jukes sees a consistent theme – parties on the run from the rule of law. And how Dominic #Cummings could end the cycle of corruption

During the current furore over leaks from Number 10,
and the apparent internecine warfare between Boris #Johnson and his former senior advisor Dominic #Cummings, one piece of information emerged which, if true, does a lot to explain the current febrile state of British politics.
According to Caroline Wheeler and Gabriel Pogrund

I've been banging on about this since the election!
The first clue came when #May - who had to do a very shady deal with the #DUP to cling on to power by her fingernails - suddenly, and confidently, shout across to Jeremy Corbyn;
"We will never let you anywhere near government!"
Where did that confidence come from? And who are the "we" she was referring to? How was #Kuensberg able to announce that "things look bad for #Labour" two hours before the official count?
And how did just 35% of the electorate return an *80* seat majority?
And, yes, as you've correctly shown, #postal voting increased by more than 50%! Why?
I don't, for a second, believe that this was a single issue (#Brexit) election!

@Maggie29047241 "A cross-party group of MPs is threatening to sue Boris Johnson unless he orders an independent investigation into Russian interference in recent UK elections and the 2016 Brexit vote."
@Maggie29047241 "The MPs say the government’s refusal to investigate Kremlin meddling is a breach of the European convention on human rights, which enshrines the right to free elections in protocol 1."
@Maggie29047241 "Caroline Lucas, the Green MP for Brighton, said: “Democratic processes are clearly at risk. It seems that the integrity of our elections is being deliberately undermined. Nothing could be more serious for our democracy."

Ironische Reflexion v. Öffentlichkeit & Demokratie im #Kaiserreich im Frühwerk v. #KarlMay (#GeographischePredigten v. 1875). Da auch Tiere "Gesellschaften" bildeten, wäre es nicht erstaunlich, wenn hier konservative & sozialdemokratische Strömungen und Charaktere existierten. Image
Keine dauerhafte Zukunft haben britische & russische Expansionen nach Osten, weiß #May. Denn: Eine erfolgreiche Kulturbewegung erfolge stets nur von Ost nach West, nicht umgekehrt. Wie auch der schon 1000-jährige "Kulturmüßiggang" der Chinesen zeige. Image
"Unser Jahrhundert"! #KarlMay ist #GustavFreytag. #GeographischePredigten, 1875. ImageImage

To increase the awareness about the role and qualifications of an Endocrinologist, the Endocrinologists of India have decided to celebrate the 10th of every month as the 'Endocrine awareness day'. May 10th, 2020 is the first in the series of the same. #May 10 (Contd..)
Here is my contribution to Endocrine awareness. A short video on 'How to become an Endocrinologist in India ?'.



#Endocrineawareness
It takes around 12 years to become a qualified Endocrinologist in India.

This video would be useful for any young doctor or student who inspires to be an endocrinologist in the future.

X : Have you seen #factcheckUK ?
Me : I'm aware of accusations that the Conservative party changed the display name of its social media account to this. Such actions go far beyond propaganda and into disinformation and deception. It questions the values of organisation ...
i.e. it would not be a simple case of spinning news anymore or being economical with the truth. Such an action crosses a line into deliberate deception. No political party should ever cross that line, it's more what you would expect from organised crime.
Unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. The real threat is whether such actions were taken deliberately to cause #outrage. In which case, we're now talking about psychological manipulation and these are crafts of war, not suited to political discourse ...

Have you heard of #Hotelling’s Law? In a two party system, it says that you get most votes by minimising the political distance between the parties. It’s worked well in the past, but it’s about to bring an end to both #Labour and the #Tory party. 1/n
uk.mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/id…
Hotelling’s law worked really well for Tony #Blair. #Thatcher had moved the Tory party to the right, so #NewLabour had an opportunity to increase its vote share by also moving rightwards. 2/n
Politics had shifted. Both parties held broadly similar policies. Blair’s political stance, although to the left of Thatcher’s, was much further right than any Labour leader previously (or since). Labour was able to capture ground that the Tories had left unguarded. 3/n

#Juncker announces extra summit on #Brexit extension next week: "I assume that we will not be able to reach a decision this week [at #EUCO] but that we will have to meet again next week," @JunckerEU told @DLF just now.
Asked what #May needs to "have in her bag" when she goes to Brussels to ask for #Brexit extra time, #Juncker told @DLF that "approval of the negotiated [Withdrawal] Agreement" is precondition for extension.
.@JunckerEU on @DLF: "My assessment... we'll probably have to meet again next week because Mrs May doesn't have approval for anything — not in her Cabinet and not in Parliament. As long as we don't know what Britain could say yes to, we can't come to any decision."

While UK spirals down & out of control, gripped by self-inflicted Brexit-fixated inward-looking dirty-selfish politics, Major Parties talk to themselves with NO results, so far. Yet, every passing day brings new reasons to put Brexit to a #PeoplesVote with the option to #Remain.
#TriggerIsComing to force a #PeoplesVote on #Brexit, with an option to #endthechaos and #Remain. Many MPs are daily more restive over the lack of a truly #MeaningfulVote - another #May mistake that will come back to haunt #Blukip, after ALL their Lies & wastage of time AND money.
The wheels are falling off 'any Brexit' with each passing revelation of FACTUAL REALITY. Anyone who can't see that (regardless of how they voted) is not keeping up! The doubters in Parliament will be swelling in numbers, by the minute.

IF we do leave the EU, big IF, I predict that there'll be a marked tendency for Remainers to Leave the UK, and for Leavers to Remain, stuck here. Losers perpetually banking on Winners to just suck it up, and blithely bail them out, just #May be disappointed. There, I've said it!
Close relatives who departed these shores in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's, 10's felt they perceived a better future 'elsewhere'. Am beginning to get it, at last! I #May be a slow learner, or just late to awake to the now revealed realities of the UK, and its 'true prospects'.
Of course, there's an easy alternative. Put the latest EU options (realistic ones only, please, including #Remain!) to a new #PeoplesVote - That should inform us as to the current #WillOfThePeople. That'd be a great start! Better late than never!

1 fois encore, les menaces et intimidations du président #Trump sur Theresa #May à propos du #Brexit rappellent qu'il est dépositaire d'1 projet idéologique cohérent, à la fois nationaliste et mercantiliste, soutenu et déployé par le milliardaire US Robert #Mercer... #thread
2) Au coeur de l'interview au #Sun du président US #Trump, on retrouve en effet les piliers de sa doctrine politique: le peuple, ici britannique, vs des élites qui trahiraient le vote du #Brexit, la volonté de démanteler les bureaucraties étatiques ou supra-étatiques type UE...
3)...et la menace de #Trump à #May sur 1 accord commercial des #EtatsUnis avec l'#UE en cas de #Brexit doux démontre l'approche mercantiliste"bilatérale"où les partenaires US sont mis en concurrence et amenés à se soumettre par la position dominante US. washingtonpost.com/world/europe/i…
