1/. In the centre of the swirling madness of London traffic there’s a green oasis: Buckingham Palace Gardens

At his #Coronation, we hope #KingCharles will announce the creation of a new London park - #QueenElizabeyhMemorialGardens - a gift to the nation👇
2/. The proposal - a decade in the making - is to use a strip of the gardens to create a park that would be a legacy to the Queen & transform this congested corner of London

Arched entrances would be cut into the wall & a new fence would built to ensure Palace security & privacy Image
3/. A place of tranquility & beauty,
#QueenEzliabethMemorialGardens is attracting high profile support & is described as “a beautiful idea that will be very popular with people both living in or visiting London” by @ZackPolanski, @LondonAssembly member…

#KingCharles inherited 45,667 acres of land (without having to pay inheritance tax)

The Crown owns 226,000 acres across the UK

After the #Queen died, we unveiled our proposal for a new memorial park in London: the #QueenElizabethMemorialGardens

All we need is 2 acres of land👇 ImageImageImageImage
Our vision is to create a place of tranquility in a walled garden carved from a sliver of the 42-acre Buckingham Palace Gardens: a living legacy to #QueenElizabeth

It’ll also be an act of care towards London & its ecosystem #QueenElizabethMemorialGardens…
Originally conceived to to mark the #Queen’s 90th birthday, the idea for #QueenElizabethMemorialGardens has been developed over many years

The gardens would include woodland, wild flowers, a butterfly meadow as well as a statue of #QueenElizabeth.

1/. The death of #QueenElizabeth may have dominated this year👇but it was just one of many notable lives lost in 2022 including many activists, some of whom - like Sidney Poitier - you may have heard of.

This thread is dedicated to ones you might not know
2/. Sacheen Littlefeather

In 1973, Marlon Brando refused to accept his Oscar & sent actress, Sacheen, to deliver this message in his place

People booed!

Clint Eastwood mocked her!

Off stage, John Wayne had to be restrained to stop him assaulting her!
3/. Lawyer Urvashi Vaid, fought for LGBTQ & women's rights for decades & is described as “one of the most influential progressive activists of our time”

Sadly, her speech at the March on Washington in 1993 are as as relevant today as they were back then.

1/ So where to begin this thread? Oh, I know. The #SussexSquad and all Meghan's acolytes who seem to think #TheCrown is depicting actual history. Let me elaborate. I've been a rather armchair historian, specializing in mostly on the Russian Imperial Family going back to 1613 ...
2/ I've studied the full Romanov family tree and watched pretty much every documentary out there made on the history of #TheRomanovs. I've also watched the various films and television shows made on #TsarNicholasII and the causes of WW I. This is my book collection as proof. ImageImage
3/ I have seen the 1972 Franklin J. Schaffner film, #NicholasandAlexandra. The 1974 series #FallofEagles. The 1996 Alan Rickman film #Rasputin. I've seen practically ever single documentary on the family and the events surrounding the #BolshevikRevolution and have many books ...

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4665: Queen Elizabeth II, Donald Trump, Prince Charles, and Two Dominant Fingers — #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #QueenElizabeth #DonaldTrump #PrinceCharles #MiddleFinger #Behaviorist
2/ In 2019, whilst meeting with other NATO Country leaders in London, Donald Trump and Melania met Queen Elizabeth, Then-Prince Charles, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. What follows is a partial nonverbal and behavioral analysis of crucial portions of this interaction.
3/ In this first image, as Donald Trump walks around a corner, he holds his mouth open for an extended time in a moment of feigned surprise-happiness. For many this is an extremely common and insincere expression given upon greeting.

Today's edition of the @WSWS_Updates carries three sharp & important comments on the death of #QueenElizabethII.
Chris Marsden's comment on the the #queensfuneral draws a parallel to that of Edward VII in 1910. 1/…
The bombastic spectacle preceded the outbreak of WWI by just 4 years, followed by the overthrow of the Tsars in Russia in 1917 and the German Kaiser in 1918. Similarly, the glorification of monarchy, pomp & backwardness today heralds nothing so much as war & revolution. 2/
In her article, Jean Shaoul details only one of the horrific massacres in Africa that #QueenElizabeth presided over: the bloody crushing of the Mau Mau insurgency in Kenya in 1952-56, with an estimated 150,000 dead 3/:…

I’ve never seen so many people so quiet and respectful.

This truly is a country in mourning. #QueenElizabeth 🇬🇧
In the background is the home of Prince Charles until 10 days ago.
This is the biggest police operation in the history of the UK.

More cops, cars, and security vehicles today. #QueenElizabeth 🇬🇧

Wie die Klatschpresse #QueenElizabeth verabschiedet? So, wie sie auch ihr Leben begleitet hat: mit bizarren Lügengeschichten.

Hier mal ein Überblick.

Während „Frau im Spiegel“ (Funke) schreibt, ihr Abschied sei „still“ gewesen, behauptet „Woche der Frau“ (Klambt), sie habe ihren Sohn am Sterbebett „verzweifelt angefleht“.

Laut „Die Aktuelle“ (Funke) waren nur ihre zwei ältesten Kinder und zwei Corgis im Raum. Laut „Freizeit Spaß“ (Burda) war auch ein treuer Diener anwesend, der ein Fenster öffnete, damit ihre Seele „leicht und frei hinausfliegen“ konnte.

Unbelievable images and sounds as the Queen’s coffin is taken in procession from Westminster Hall to @wabbey on a gun carriage pulled by 142 Royal Navy men and women.
Led massed Pipes and Drums if Scottish and Irish Regiments, Gurkhas and RAF
Solemn. Stunning. Ceremonial
Inside @wabbey Prince George 9, and Princess Charlotte 7, walk behind the coffin their great-grandmother (GanGan).
They walk between William & Kate and Harry & Meghan.
Behind the coffin in Procession is The King and Queen Consort and the late Queen’s other children
Before the Queen’s coffin was carried from @wabbey by the Bearer Party, The Sovereign’s Piper played the traditional lament: ‘Sleep, dearie, sleep’. As Piper, Paul Burns, walked out of view, the sound of the pipes remained and slowly faded away…

🚨 THREAD: As #Britain continues to mourn the loss of #QueenElizabeth II, the remaining provisions of the #CoronavirusAct are due to expire in #Scotland on 30th Sept & #England #Wales around the same time.

But some 'permanent provisions' may not expire as expected... (contd.) The Coronavirus Act (2020)
While three of the provisions & a part of the fourth (s.55b) were repealed, there's mention of provisions remaining 'necessary' to support 'pandemic recovery' & the Govt Living with COVID plan.
The 'permanent provision' of s.63 - 'power to make supplementary provisions' & it's permanent fixture by virtue of s.89 of the Act, raised our eyebrows 👀

'Retroactively' to our interpretation is the Govt saying that they don't want to let go of this particular power.

Elisabeth Borne annonce que la hausse des prix sera "contenue" à 15% pour l'électricité et pour le gaz à la rentrée 2023, grâce au maintien du bouclier tarifaire. Image
"Cette hausse de 15% n'est pas anodine", convient Elisabeth Borne, qui promet des aides pour les plus modestes.

Des chèques énergie "exceptionnels" de 100 ou 200 euros seront versés "d'ici la fin de l'année pour les 12 millions de foyers les plus modestes", par exemple.
Bruno Le Maire précise que le prolongement du bouclier tarifaire coûtera 16 milliards d'euros en 2023 : 11 milliards d'euros pour le gaz et 5 milliards pour l'électricité.

Quand aux chèques énergie exceptionnels évoqués précédemment, ils "coûteront" 1,8 milliard d'euros.

THREAD: What has the Queen said about her faith?

We gave catalogued some of the things #QueenElizabeth has said in her Christmas messages about her faith in Jesus Christ

"Pray for me…that God may give me wisdom and strength to carry out the solemn promises I shall be making, and that I may faithfully serve Him and you, all the days of my life." (1952)

“The gift I would most value next year is that reconciliation should be found wherever it is needed. A reconciliation which would bring peace and security to families and neighbours at present suffering and torn apart..." (1976)

قائدِ اعظم محمد ؐ علی جناح صاحب کے آخری ایام
ٖوہ سارا دن بستر پر مردہ دل ، بے حس و مایوس لیٹے رہے۔ "فاطمی مجھے اب زندہ رہنے میں دل چسپی نہیں ہے۔(1)
جتنا جلد میں چلا جاؤں اتنا ہی بہتر ہے۔ اس سے کوئی فرق نہیں پڑتا میں زندہ رہوں یا مر جاؤں۔ جناح کی آنکھوںمیں آنسواور ایسے شخص میں جسے عام طور پر غیر جذباتی اور مظبوط سمجھا جاتاتھا۔ جذبات کے اس مظاہرہ سےہم سب حیرت زدہ رہ گئے۔ میں تجربہ سے جانتا تھا کہ۔ جب ایک مریض ہمت ہار دے (2)
تو کوئی علاج چاہے کتنا ہی بھر پور کیوں نہ ہو ذیادہ کامیاب نہیں ہو سکتا اوراس لئے یہ بات جان کر کہ اس آہنی قوت ارادی کے شخص نے ہمت ہار دی تھی۔ سخت مایوسی ہوئی۔
ستمبر تک جناح کو نمونیا کے علاوہ تب دق اور پھیپڑوں کا سرطان ہو چکاتھا۔ ان کا بخار ١٠٠ درجہ تھا. وزن ستر پونڈ رہ گیا۔(3)

As #QueenElizabeth's body makes its way to #Edinburgh, I found myself thinking of @kamilashamsie:

"When the rich live in gilded palaces and the poor die of starvation, that isn't savagery. When Parliament is corrupt and resists reform, that isn't savagery..." Image
"When laws are passed to prevent Englishmen from gathering together to speak their mind, or to publish their thoughts, that isn't savagery..." Image
"But when all that repression leaves men with no recourse but to take drastic measures to throw off the chains that bind us -- then, Uncle, what then? Is that savagery?" ImageImage

The is going to be a very tough day for our country.
The first sight of the Queen’s coffin.
In the car following the Hearse is the Queen's daughter Princess Anne and her husband Sir Tim Laurence.
Anne is a formidable person, but this six hour journey behind the Queen’s coffin would challenge the resolve of anyone.
10:23am, the Queen’s coffin passes through her local village of Ballater.
Our colleague @PeterAdamSmith was told yesterday: “The country has lost a Monarch, we have lost a neighbour”.

1/ Sejak foto Ratu #QueenElizabeth mengunjungi koloni mahkotanya di Hong Kong pada tahun 1975 beredar luas, inilah saat yang tepat untuk mengingatkan orang-orang Inggris menjadikan Hong Kong sebagai koloninya secara paksa sebagai hasil dari perang untuk menjual Opium ke China.
2/ Wakil Inggris benar-benar melakukan pekerjaan yang layak untuk meringkas bagaimana Inggris memperdagangkan berton-ton obat-obatan terlarang ke China, kemudian mengobarkan DUA Perang Opium untuk melindungi perdagangan narkobanya.
3/ Opium telah dikenal dalam pengobatan tradisional Tiongkok sejak Dinasti Tang. Itu digunakan sebagai obat penghilang rasa sakit.

Ketika penjajah Eropa memperkenalkan tembakau dari Amerika, Opium dicampur dengan tembakau di Hindia Belanda (sekarang Indonesia).
