The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

A remarkable movie with a strong relevant issue .
If you want to witness the reality behind war crime intentionally done by world superpowers against other country then this is a must watch movie . Kudos to Director & entire team
for bringing an awakening script based on real life story "the spy who tried to stop a war " .
Human history is full of such war crime committed in order to show the supremacy but actually they in turn defamed whole nation & deteriorated the accountability of government
to the people who elected them . If you are working for a secret organization who hides the confidential information relevant to public then can exposing them should be considered as crime against nation ? Matter of fact is as responsible citizen we have right to know

mainly macro: A government out of control…
A #government out of control
The commitment that the #UK government gives 0.7% of its GDP as overseas aid is enshrined in law. #Johnson’s government decided to cut this to 0.5%, but didn’t need to put this to parliament because the cut was supposed to be temporary.
A large number of Conservative MPs were unhappy with this, and wanted to use parliament to reverse this cut. The parliament’s #speaker ruled their attempt invalid, but requested the #government to allow a vote on the issue. The government refused.

The killing of Jeremy Corbyn
Peter Oborne and David Hearst

The former Labour leader was the victim of a carefully planned and brutally executed political assassination
Former Labour Leader Jeremy #Corbyn (Reuters)
Throughout his parliamentary career, the mild mannered, infuriatingly calm Jeremy Corbyn has never failed to excite strong emotions.
For his enemies, he will go down as one of Labour’s worst leaders.

Questions.... Need answers ...
If you still believe in the mainstream narrative, I have a few questions for you that I genuinely cannot answer:
Explain how the nation can be brainwashed with the #Indian variant by Government and mainstream and then for it to be all suddenly pulled from existence at the Indian Government's request, saying its a #lie?? 🥴
Explain how the #flu disappeared but has been replaced with something which has the EXACT same symptoms.
Explain why they downgraded "#Covid-19" from a high consequential infectious disease days before they declared a #pandemic.

Britain’s #Political #Media Corruption: A Coalition of the Guilty – Byline Times…
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

So, I got into a LONG!!! talk with a reader/friend of mine about the world of publishing. Now, I'm not an expert, but staring down the release of my 6th book (holy shit, 6th?!), I have to reflect on a few realities of publication & open a dialogue with the #WritingCommunity
A bit of background: I've been writing since 2006. I self-pub'd my first book in 2009, and continued with self-pub ever since. This was just before self-publication became vogue. And it was a conscious choice - and it was also how I learned what I know. The hard way.

My friend said, "Getting an agent is like winning the lottery". This isn't wrong.
I tried to query, and was shot down every. single. time.
This isn't unusual. In fact, every #writer know that when you're #querying, this is par for the course.

The Role of the #Press in #Election rigging
This is the third part in a series about the rigging of the 2019 Dec #UK general election
where we focus on the role of the #British press in delivering the extreme right wing govts of Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings, the United States
The Role of the #Media
I have no plans to relive any of the most despicable media output ever to disgrace the name of the 4th Estate. One of the main functions of an active, intelligent and questioning press is to hold those that govern us to account.
The #British #press have not only failed miserably to do that, but they have aided and abetted the very liars, fraudsters and racketeers who have taken over #Parliament and stolen the nations cutlery.
Wherever great power and wealth accumulate, corruption, bribery and fraud

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that the top brass is corrupt. When this happens, there is only the #Press--the real Press--that can sometimes raise-awareness. #Biden made deals on YOUR SELL OUR #USA SOVEREIGNTY!

#Wikileaks is a place for #whistleblowers.

#NationalSecurity must realize that the safety of the #USA has been compromised by security agencies' laziness & corruption!

#Wikileaks published the information that helped link #Biden, #China & a #FakeTradeDeal that kills our #USA SOVEREIGNTY! #NoCPTPP

Our #NationalSecurity must realize that our country cannot survive if we shift production to offshore sweatshops, hand our law-making processes to transnational, CEOs in #ISDS tribunals &/or censor our #FreedomofSpeech & #FreedomOfThePress.

I kinda think it's hillarious that @_SecondThought was intimidated by @DHSgov and shadowbanned by @YouTube re: criticism of the @CIA.

For all the wrong reasons...
[a thread]
For once, it's a chilling effect for anyone, espechally de-facto members of the #press [since @_SecondThought does #journalism, be is part of it] to intimidate them by a govt. agency like @DHSgov.

Not to mention that their accusation, "anti-americanism", is not a crime.
In any reasonable justice system, #NullaPeneSineLege applies, which means the government cannot do anything about something that isn't explicitly outlawed.

And last time I checked voicing criticism of politicans was not, @DHSgov!

#IHC in a constitutional petition filed by a #Journalist @ArshadSulahri held that the Director General of the #FIA is expected to formulate guidelines for the investigating officers, having regard to the principles highlighted in the judgment of the august Supreme Court.
It is further expected that the Agency will consider prescribing special guidelines regarding proceedings against persons engaged in the profession of journalism on account of the profound effect on the freedom of press and independence of a journalist when the coercive powers
are abused, giving rise to a perception of retaliation to professional functions performed. In this regard the Agency may
consult the key stake holders.

and members of the Federal Cabinet are elected representatives of the people and

Sir David King, Convenor of Independent 'SAGE

Four months into the #COVID-19 pandemic and with the total of deaths in hospital, care home and community settings heading north of 50,000, we have at last had the benefit of a coherent and transparent analysis of the challenge the country faces with clear guidance ahead.
Published on 12 May, the Independent #SAGE Report identified the priorities for action to support the gradual release from social distancing by means of a sustainable response, until such time as effective treatments or vaccines become available.

Now that I’ve read through some of the #Woodward #Rage stories, here is my take:

· None of this will change any minds. For those that hate #PresidentTrump, this reinforces it. For those that love the President, this won’t change that. 1/13
· As far as #COVID and downplaying the virus when you read the reports it sounds bad, but when you listen to the audio, I understand the idea of not creating a panic. 2/13
· No one, including the scientists, knew what they were dealing with, hence the reason it’s novel, & there is still a lot to be learned of the virus. 3/13
