'@carolecadwalla was blasted for saying #cambridgeanalytica was involved in brexit

Cambridge Analytica took Leave .eu & AIQ ran VoteLeave side. Both funded by the Mercer's.

The Mercer's funded brexit?

Both companies, cambridge analytica & AIQ came from Mercer funded campaigns
But, let's also see the overdue report by the @ICOnews who were looking at the last of the #cambridgeanalytica servers they seized, which was hoped to be completed in Autumn just gone.

This is very interesting and now clearly obvious. Why would you be a willing participant in activities that make you a traitor to your nation...
... there used to be a clear line that you would not cross yet the traitorous acts are being willingly and actively covered up...

Time to talk about Russia...

@BorisJohnson: now the election is over, when will the rest of us get to see the #RussiaReport? While Parliament is sitting, or Christmas Eve?

@libdems say #ReleaseTheRussiaReport thebureauinvestigates.com/stories/2019-1…
Let’s talk about Russia...

My question to Boris Johnson

Qu: Are you most worried about evidence of foreign interference in elections and the referendum, or Tories’ close financial ties to Russia?

@LibDems say #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
Let’s talk about Russia...

Clearly too contentious for Tories to let us see the #RussiaReport before the election, so let’s see it now!

Sending back to committee is NOT good enough: blatant stalling. No ifs, no buts, we just want the truth.

THREAD ON JOHN WHITTINGDALE TIPPED FOR NEW CULTURE SEC
At @BBCNewsnight I broke the story for TV about how @JWhittingdale failed to register a freebie for him and his lover who so happened to be a dominatrix - a word I had trouble pronouncing right
/1
Our story was based on a brill investigation by James Cusick for @openDemocracy: opendemocracy.net/en/ourbeeb/rea…

@George_Osborne mocked Whitto at lobby bunfight, discussing Brexit models, "the Albanian model, the Norwegian model... it turns out that John Whittingdale knew them all."

Whitto was toast. In spring 2016 I worked on a follow-up story about dodgy friendship between Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash and Whitto. The topline: "Culture Secretary John Whittingdale faces fresh questions tonight about his judgment in accepting £14,000 in benefits...

Russian Report EP3 | Susie Boniface: @BorisJohnson Russia links @KremlinRussia_E must be made public before the General Election this Thursday #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
The report @BorisJohnson is sitting on should be leaked by a whistleblower in the national interest. Voters about to choose the next government have a right to know what's been going on as after the general election 🗳 it’s too late 👇🏼 #ReleaseTheRussiaReport #GE2019
Since 2004, Russian trolls, service providers, security services and shady businessmen have been linked to political interference in 27 countries worldwide. #Russia

How it is possible that @BorisJohnson is being investigated in the USA for potentially being compromised but nobody in the United Kingdom including the #bbcqt #media #Police have investigated this #crime #Brexit the #GeneralElection is days away #ReleaseTheRussianReport
The intrigue over a 'buried' probe into Russian spying deepened last night amid claims in security circles that it contains references to blackmail fears concerning Boris Johnson. #ReleaseTheRussianReport
One expert witness, who gave evidence to the ISC inquiry, has claimed privately to friends that he believes Boris Johnson was 'compromised' by a Russian businessman on a foreign trip in 2016
This is getting crazier 😱 #ReleaseTheRussianReport #GeneralElection2019 #GetJohnsonGone

At 9pm tonight, if we have not secured the #ReleaseTheRussiaReport, I shall release all of the information that I have in my possession.
Suppressing the #RussiaReport is potentially a national security risk and this cannot continue.
@DominicGrieveQC @Keir_Starmer @JMPSimor
1. In summer 2018, I wrote a note as follows:
Are there ukip links to Russia?
CA links to criminal activity?
What role do Breibart, Arron Banks and Nigel Farage play?
Is there connection between EU ref and Russia?
👆must be investigated before we leave EU on poss corrupted vote.

Finding it hard to stomach the absolute shamelessness of the Tory party’s cynical, frankly dystopian attempts to make truth (rather like “experts”) a matter of “opinion”.

It’s a Trumpian way of shaving off integrity from British public life.
Exhibit B.

“No one gives a toss”...

So does disinformation actually mean nothing? When Facebook and Whatsapp posts are used to deploy false information to interfere in elections, or crimes against humanity around the world?

Does the British govt not “give a toss” then either?
Exhibit C:

Turns out quite a lot of people in Britain actually do “give a toss” about truth and integrity.

Perhaps the govt should put the correct information into the public domain and finally #ReleaseTheRussiaReport.

Boris Johnson is using his executive power to suppress the report into Russian interference in our democracy until after the election. Why? #releasetherussiareport #ge2019
The report is based on analysis from Britain’s intelligence agencies who approved it for publication following a long clearance process. Is Johnson suppressing it because nine Russian oligarch donors to the Conservative party are named in the report?
One of the nine donors is Alexander Temerko who has donated £1.2m to the Conservative party in the last 7 years. Though he now says he wants the report released

This is a hungover #BorisJohnson, then Foreign Secretary, staggering back to London after a party at a Russian billionaire’s castle in Italy, April 2018. He had abandoned his security detail and appeared still drunk. 😠 #ToriesOut #Corruption #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
Does anyone really think that this disgraceful, unprincipled boor *hasn’t* left a thick trail of #kompromat in his wake? He looks compromised to me... 😠 #ToriesOut #Corruption #Russia #ReleaseTheRussiaReport 🇪🇺🇬🇧🇪🇺
This is the Guardian article. Why did #BorisJohnson shed his security detail? What did he get up to that night? We know that MI6 don’t trust him - how compromised is he? 😠 #Corruption #ToriesOut #Russia #JohnsonMustGo

#Brexit IS about escaping tax + financial #transparency. Conservatives and their donors are terrified of wealth being exposed. UK govt HAVE NOT transposed EU's 5th anti-money laundering directive by the deadline. See here... researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefi…
The EU's 5th #AML Directive requires 'public registers of beneficial owners' of companies. Tory leaders since 2015 desperately tried to exempt UK trusts, crown dependencies + tax havens from this law. Will expose vested interests + tax evaders. Hence #brexit haste.
In fact they don't intend to implement the public registers of company ownership in UK crown dependencies fully, EVER.
It would be the end of them.

Other EU countries don't have such lax donor and registration rules so don't appreciate the shockwaves caused by 5th AML in UK.

Are the Daily Mail, Daily Express, the Sun and the BBC going to cover this because it seems to me people blindly supporting Johnson and his crew outside Twitter need to be informed on all this and so much more ? #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
I think the media must accept some of the responsibility for just how badly informed people are. Finally we are seeing some challenges to the lies and extraordinary claims made by politicians on Brexit and the economy and the influences on the dodgy referendum of 2016.
With some notable exceptions too many political journalists have put the drama of division and cult of personality above getting sensible and accurate information out to the people of the UK. Breathless cooing over tory psychodrama has turned politics into celeb “reality”TV.

'How safe are British elections from foreign interference?' --> good to see @BBCNewsnight leading on this tonight. #GE2019 #ReleaseTheRussiaReport
Whitehall officials have told @BBCNewsnight that they feel Downing Street HAS had adequate time to clear the #Russia report for publication. Officials concerned that report has been suppressed due to worries about its 'weaponisation' - which has been put before national security
Dominic Grieve: "I very much fear that the report will never see the light of day" #ReleaseTheRussiaReport

This is VERY serious & unacceptable:

UK PM withholding Intelligence Committee report on security threat of Russian interference in upcoming (12 Dec!) general election.

What is Boris Johnson hiding?

#DefendingDemocracy #GE2019 #UKPolitics #HybridWar

theguardian.com/politics/2019/…
Chair Intelligence & Security Committee:

PM Johnson's press office* come up with "whopping lies" on why report can’t be published now.

*Linked to #Cummings, Johnson's chief adviser, who is now facing questions over his activities in... #Russia.

#GE2019

UK PM blocks report on Russian election interference — until *after* the election ?!

What is Boris Johnson hiding ??

Yet *another* UK election that's not free & fair.

Unless it leaks...

Voters deserve to know the truth!
