I guess once the not safe for EU labels start rolling out, Billingsgate Market will need an E-Coli section for UK consumption only.
Just so the @Conservatives can feed the UK more shit, we have the #SewageScandal #CovidEnquiry #Profiteering #NHSCrisis #PartyGate #BrexitDisaster

A thread…

This video has been making the rounds on Twitter.

This is @MichaelFordTO - Minister of Multiculturalism and nephew of @fordnation…highlighting the 900 people of Indian heritage that currently live in Ontario.


900. Nine. Zero. Zero.
In Ontario.

A quick google search indicates over 750,000 people of Indian heritage in the province. It took about 30 secs to find that info.

One would think the Minister of Multiculturalism would have access to the same info I have.


All jokes aside…this is emblematic of the @fordnation govt in so many ways.

We see a minister who is woefully unqualified put in a position simply because of who he’s related to…ineptitude rewarded by nepotism…classic Doug Ford.

Yet this is just the veneer.

At the same time companies are reporting record profits. #bcpoli 1/

Examples of #profiteering over the first quarter of 2022:
Petronas - owner of #CGL - made $6.87 billion
Telus - made $4.3 billion
Loblaws - $12.3 billion. 2/
The role of govt is to protect the public interest.
So today I asked: what is the government doing to protect British Columbians from the corporations who are using them to line their pockets? 3/ #bcpoli

You can't turn around these days without bumping into scary inflation talk, and with reason: asset bubbles, supply chain shocks and energy geopolitics are on their way to wiping out the wage gains eked out by low-waged workers during the pandemic's labor shortage. 1/ A WWI-era anti-profiteering editorial cartoon featuring an o

The underlying message of this scare-talk is that we've been too generous with "essential workers," by allowing them to inch a little closer to a living wage, and now it's time to roll that back, for their own good. 3/

David is staying at the Reading Pentahotel on 10 days RedList Quarantine...
They are charging him £1750, even though their standard room price is £54 per night (=£650).
Here is the food he is getting.

Trump didn't drain the swamp. He drained the Treasury. #MAGA #Corruption…
I first wrote about Trump's Corona Corruption in April. #Corruption #Profiteering…
In April, the PPP website for all the Mom-and-Pop small businesses kept crashing. But somehow the Trump Administration corruption kept humming along like a fine-tuned machine. #Corruption #Profiteering…

1} My Dear Friend Geri,

With all due respect to current #NonProfits serving Refugees & Immigrants - their Branding & Messaging are #Tragically #Weak.

#OurAmericanKids🇺🇸 are BEING #SCAPEGOATED & #WE, the Liberals of #OurCountry we call the United States of America...
2} ...get OUR #Truthful-#Propaganda #LUNCH handed to us - #EVERY #DAMNED #TIME there's a watershed political issue.

My opinion as a 25-year #Duke MBA-trained-#Strategist, is that "Dreamers" is a well-intentioned, but desperately INEFFECTIVE MONIKER for #OurAmericanKids. Scapegoats for American Fascists
3} My dog #Sadie is a very #Active #Dreamer. Hitler #Dreamed about ruling an #AryanPlanet.

Un-@realDonaldTrump dreams of building a wall "SO fucking HIGH," that planes can't #LAND in #Texas without traveling 100-miles North of our Southern Border - just to pull a #giant U-ey✈️ Hitler Dreamed of an Aryan Planet-Earth.U-Turn in the sky
