Boris Johnson & Michael Gove promised lower fuel bills once Britain left the EU

EU gas prices are high too, but they trade efficiently in linked auctions that balance prices across the EU

We don't because #Brexit 🤦‍♂️

#BrexitReality #ProjectFear #BrexitChaos #ToryBrexitDisaster UK Energy Crisis
So now the UK has the highest energy prices in Europe. We produce most of our electricity from gas.

It's important we make no mistake. This is a problem created by the #ToryBrexitDisaster

They are disaster capitalists who bankrupt industries and buy them up cheap in a monopoly.
Everything that is happening now was predicted in the leaked 2018 Operation Yellowhammer report, saying that a No / Bad #Brexit Deal (which we have) could lead to

Food & Petrol Shortages✅
Significant Electricity Price Increases✅

For now its wholesale (retail prices are fixed)

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

Guten Morgen - Tässle Kaffee? ☕️

Ein selten bedachter Aspekt von #Migration: Autoritäre Regime wie #Iran, #Türkei, #Russland, #Belarus… stabilisieren sich auch dadurch, dass sie Weltoffene in die #Emigration treiben. Vgl. #Deutschland im 19. Jht. 🧐 Für Einwanderungsländer 👍
So nahmen auch deutsche Emigranten am Kampf um die Demokratie der USA 🇺🇸 teil, z.B. #GustavStruve. Er kämpfte noch mit 50+ mit #Lincoln gg. Sklaverei. Zuvor hatte #Struve am 21.9.1848 in #Lörrach eine #Republik ausgerufen. Darf am 21.9.21 an ihn erinnern. badische-zeitung.de/der-antisemiti…
Hier ein Überblick über das Leben des Republikaners #GustavStruve, der u.a. mit der unglaublichen #AmalieStruve auch für Frauenstimmrecht kämpfte, seinen Adelstitel ablegte, den 1. #Vegetarier-Bund in #Stuttgart gründete, Revolutionstruppen anführte u.v.m! de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_St…

Nach "Insiderinformationen" soll das Kernstück des #CDU #Wahlprogramm's ein Wiederaufbauprogramm sein.

Es könnte kleinere Steuersenkungen geben und viel Deregulierung.
Aufs #Klima wird nicht eingegangen, außer "Schöpfung schützen".
#Laschet wird auf Plakaten wenig auftauchen
/PM
Das Programm wurde wohl von einer kleinen Gruppe entwickelt.
Die #CDU Fraktion wurde nicht einbezogen.
Genau so wenig wie #Söder... aber der will ja eh sein eigenes #Wahlprogramm.
/PM
Das spricht Bände über die #CDU.

Andere Parteien halten dreitägige Parteitage ab, um ein Wahlprogramm aufzustellen. Wieder andere wählen ihre*n Vorsitzende*n direkt.

Die CDU denkt sich "scheiß drauf". Es reicht, wenn die Spitze allein entscheidet.
Der Rest wird mitziehen.

A thread.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ)’s migration from Mecca (hometown) to Medina.

#ProphetMuhammad #mecca #medina #migration #hijra
The Prophet and his followers started preparations for the migration. Family after the family began to disappear; sometimes a whole lane would be emptied in the course of a night.
(1/12)
In the morning, Meccans would see the doors locked and realize that the residents had migrated to Medina. The growing influence of Islam amazed them.

The blackmailing #Morocco uses against the #EU& #Spain,and the use of two sensitive topics (#migration & #terrorism) has not started with what happened in #Ceuta. It has been the case along the #EU-#Morocco relations’ history. A quick flashback:
1:used to push #EU to accept #Morocco’s claims to join the #EU in the 90s after being lonely/unwanted in its natural continent,the #AU(b/c of its illegal military #occupation of the neighbouring #WesternSahara)->the #EU submitted but proposed an association agreement instead
2:migration used as key element during negotiations of the 2000 #Association_Agreement to maximise the funds provided to #Morocco by the #EU under the agreement and to get what the #EU calls “Advanced status” under the #ENP (European Neighbouring Policy) with related advantages

జంతువులు, పక్షులు, కీటకాలలో వలస సహజ లక్షణం. వలస (ఆంగ్లం #Migration) అనగా రుతుక్రమంగా, ఒక ప్రదేశం నుంచి మరొక ప్రదేశానికి వలస పోవడం. గుడ్లు పెట్టే స్థలాల కోసం, ఆహార సేకరణ కోసం, వాతావరణ అననుకూలత నుంచి తప్పించుకోవడం కోసం ఈ వలసలు జరుగుతాయి.
@BTelugabbayi Image
చాలా పక్షులు సుదూర ప్రాంతాలకు ఒక నిర్ధిష్టమైన మార్గాలలో వలసపోతాయి. వీటిలో ఎక్కువగా ఉత్తర దిక్కు నుండి చలికాలంలో దక్షిణ దిక్కులోని ఉష్ణ ప్రాంతాలకు వలసపోయి గుడ్లను పెట్టి, పొదిగి, పిల్లలతో తిరిగి వాటి ప్రాంతాలకు తిరిగివస్తాయి.

ప్రపంచ వలస పక్షుల దినోత్సవం 2006 సంవత్సరం నుంచి ప్రతి సంవత్సరం మే నెల రెండవ వారాంతంలో జరుగుతున్నది. ప్రతి ఏటా మే నెలలో వచ్చే రెండో శనివారాన్ని ఈ దినోత్సవంగా జరుపుకుంటారు. అయితే ఈ సంవత్సరం మే నెలలో 8 తేదీలో వలస పక్షుల దినోత్సవాన్ని జరుపతలపెట్టారు. Image

EU citizens are being detained and held in immigration removal centers after trying to enter the UK for work without visas or residence status, in a further blow to post-Brexit relations between Britain and the Continent.

politico.eu/article/eu-cit… #Brexit #migration
EU diplomats have expressed concern about the transfer of the bloc’s nationals to immigration removal centers, where they are being held for up to seven days in some cases before being returned to their home countries.
The Home Office has not yet released official data on the number of EU nationals held at these centers since the start of the year. But @POLITICOEurope has heard of 30 cases involving German, Greek, Italian, Romanian and Spanish nationals.

We invite you to check out the work of MADAR's amazing partners in Morocco, Algeria, & Tunisia, starting with a 🧵 about our pre-call workshops, which brought together a range of actors to identify key research & action priorities @GCRF @ahrcpress @KeeleUniversity @KeeleInclusion
The pre-call workshops were spaces for exchange between civil society, practitioners, researchers, cultural actors, and artists working on the themes of #migration, #displacement, and #protection of vulnerable displaced persons in the context of conflict
In Morocco, the team (@AisblRacines and AMI) organized six regional workshops in six Moroccan regions (Casablanca-Settat, Tanger-Tétouan-Al Hoceima, Draa Tafilalet, Fès-Meknès, Rabat-Salé-Kénitra and Souss-Massa) between November and December 2020

I was an #Australian #migration officer before #immigration became exclusion, before the Border Protection Bill, before Nauru. When the spirit was to invite people in, not keep them out - good people, loved ones, & those in need of protection.

I understood (& applied) migration

rules as a silent contract with Australians, who accepted & welcomed foreigners, knowing & trusting that procedures & numbers were a balance of needs & requirements, a give & take. A system that argued its case year after year, wooed for support, accountable to all.

Where rules were clear & fair, & so were services. Not once have I had a case of refusal that did not have a reason I couldn't explain, & those denied entry might not have liked, but understood it & why it made sense.

It's been painful to see immigration hijacked, usually by
