UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak (@RishiSunak) reacts to former health minister Matt Hancock's (@MattHancock) appearances on the reality TV show “I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!”. #UKPolitics #RishiSunak #MattHancock
Sunak said politics should be “noble” and devoid of such behaviour from lawmakers.

“I was disappointed when he went on the show … we’ve spent however long [on] all these challenges that the country faces – not just me.

MPs not just from my party, from all parties, are focused on debating and trying to solve [the challenges].

Some folks are exulting as UK has had its first Hindu PM. Well the irony is that he has become the PM not because of his Hindu roots but because UK saw him as the most capable amongst the lot to sort out the mess. This also points out to the bane that Indian…1/7
polity suffers with, to offer positions on the basis of identity. Sadly & unfortunately, a whole host of our intellectuals and media personnel promote this peculiarity as they too suffer from the same mindset.

Some folks are lamenting why India is not so diverse….2/7
These are motivated people who view the world from only Hindu-Muslim prism and erroneously believe that the only way Bharat can become diverse is when she has a Muslim as PM. Also, their colonial mindset is wired to appreciate and give credit to the west for all…3/7

Austerity has led to excess deaths through poverty. Austerity has led to David Cameron’s Big Society Actually meaning #FoodBankBritain. And it’s not just the unemployed using food banks. Wages for hard working people is so poor, and inflation so high that teachers and nurses are
using them to feed their families too. #FoodBankTories
The #Tories have run down schools and run down the #NHS. Schools aren’t properly supported or ventilated. Staff turnover is ridiculously high. Burnout is commonplace.
The #NHS has been deliberately run down in order to justify selling it off. #Covid was deliberately mismanaged to justify selling the #NHS off. Billions of pounds were given to Track and Trace during the pandemic while Nurses and Doctors of colour were forced into frontline

''How UK's New Prime Minister Rose To Power and Wealth:
Once a new face emerges on the global stage, I would quickly research about their rising and try to figure out what code they used to emerge..
People rise majorly through 3 codes - who you marry, who you know that knows you Image
and what you know.
TD Jakes said "nothing just happens" which means greatness is not accidental.
Let's talk about the 3 codes:
First code is the strongest - if you miss it here, you may struggle for the rest of your life. You must be intentional with choosing Who to marry.
My father said to me "Son, don't marry because she satisfies you. You are not looking for a sex machine - anyone can satisfy a man in bed. Look for the seed of greatness, sound mind, good upbringing and potentials for growth. That's what a wise person looks for in a spouse -

Once upon a time, a smart man wearing black suit knocked on our door.
Requested a room to stay.
He slowly started re-arranging our home.
Eventually, he took over our best room in the house.
Started stealing our best utensils, clothes & sending them over to his family in Britain.
Made us work harder to feed his needs.

Tried to kill us when we protested.

After a lot of struggle, he finally moved out.

He boasted to the world about all the wonderful changes he has brought to our house.
He also got successful in selling the propaganda of "British rule - the best thing - for India" to many Indians.

Anyways, the man in black suit is back.

This time, in his house.

In August 2022 @RishiSunak left a bitter taste in the mouths of Turkish Cypriots as his anti-Turkish letter to the so-called “Conservative Friends of Cyprus” was released to the public.

Now he is the UK’s Prime Minister…

#RishiSunak #PrimeMinister #TurkishCypriotsExist #Cyprus
In his letter, Sunak revealed his very misinformed and narrow minded view on the Cyprus issue. It was filled with historical falsehoods regarding the events of 1974 and a lack of awareness surrounding current issues such as Varosha and the drilling within the EEZ’s.

@BTCAOfficial The British Turkish Cypriot Association responded to @RishiSunak letter immediately after. However, the new Prime Minister never replied. Unfortunately this suggests his anti-Turkish views on the Cyprus issue are true…

#RishiSunak was at the heart of the #HerdImmunityScandal

Every epidemiologist, virologist & scientist made clear that - without a vaccine - #HerdImmunity was an “outcome” never a “strategy”

On 21/9/20, Sunak & Johnson skipped a crucial SAGE meeting to meet two lockdown sceptics
At the Sept meeting that Sunak skipped, SAGE had advised a circuit-breaker lockdown

Scientists had also warned against #Sunak's Eat Out to Help Out scheme which is closely linked to rise in #COViD19 cases & likely helped trigger a rise in deaths among ethnic minority populations
After #Sunak & Johnson were briefed by the anti-lockdown sceptics, they ignored SAGE’s advice to:

1. introduce a circuit-breaker lockdown

2. close pubs, restaurants & gyms

3. stop households mixing in each other’s homes

4. stop face-to-face teaching at universities & colleges

#RishiSunak All “POC” are not the same + it demonstrates a fundamental lack of understanding not only of this, but also of history + reality,to interpret todays events as some sort of win 4 “representation”, using language + frameworks appropriated from black American experience
comparing todays events to THE ELECTION (another key distinction lol) of Americas first black President or adapting phrases like black excellence
Can we stop conflating the narrative of black Americans, a formerly enslaved group of people, kidnapped and brought to America in chains, where they went on to build the country physically and culturally,

#RishiSunak is the new Prime Minister, the first person of colour to become prime minister, and on #Diwali too. This is a hugely symbolic and representative moment for many, many people, and not just the usual suspects, those on the right of politics. 🧵
To dismiss or ignore this fact is to discount and dismiss facts, just as asking people of colour to celebrate Sunak becoming PM, by virtue of him being brown, is equally reductive, tokenistic, and dangerous.
Real representation has to be meaningful otherwise it’s pure tokenism. And real representation means actioning politics that don’t harm the people and communities you espouse to come from, the very people and communities disproportionately harmed by the multiple crisis

Lurching the UK towards 'Reaganomics'

A ‘foot soldier’ for US economic fundamentalists, #Truss and her cabinet appear to be applying policy from an American right-wing playbook and lurching the country towards ‘#Reaganomics.’ /1
/2 For the most part, since 1980, #Republican economic policy has revolved around a single policy - hefty tax cuts heavily tilted towards the rich with enormous budgetary deficits as a consequence. Under the Reagan Presidency (1980-1988), income tax was cut across the board
/3 and the top rate of income tax reduced from 70% to 28%. Both Reagan and Bush ran up enormous deficits via huge tax cuts. When Clinton came to power in 1993, he had an awful mess to clean up.

Apart from leading to higher income inequality and punishing the poor –
