Watching the #LibDemLeadership debate on #Sky with @AdamBoulton

I’ve been undecided as each candidate have particular personal qualities that appeal in different circumstances

I think @EdwardJDavey ‘s experience and breadth of understanding is showing

He more credible on “HOW”
@joswinson brings youth and sometimes warmth, humour and a contemporary feel to the debate.

She deals with the issues of electoral cooperation with Pro EU parties better.

BUT the way she responds on the #IndyRef issue unskilfully.
There is no recognition that there’s a difference in outcome for Scotland if we remain in the EU & if we do not.

If we are unsuccessful in stopping Brexit then Scotland, NI & now, I think Wales are being dragged out against their will and to their detriment

We can’t ignore that

Similarities and dissimilarities, who came first, what information can these datas provide us. FOX P2 gene was there in early from 400000BC responsible for language. How metaphorical language and scripts can help us recognize that our scriptures can be very old. In all these 1/n
years what I could understand is that the earliest encounters with change in living was brought in as metaphors mostly for sky readings. I also find that these metaphors were used for different layers of science very cryptically woven. Taking only one example of Sarameya, the 2/n
i.e, identified with Dog stars of western-greek sky chart by me makes me believe that many stories went out of Rigveda and other scriptures, never to came back to us again, since they were already a final product en-route voyage. 3/n

Mega Thread of Opinion (1 of 52)

My take on #Election2019, is one that will surprise all #Canadians who will take the #time to read past this #headline. It will be a #long #series of #tweets that will be #purely #honest & straight to the #point.
This #series of tweets will contain #jabs at #voters, the #media & our #political #parties & they are #jabs, that in my own #opinion are #merited. Agree or don’t agree, I won’t care, but it needs to be said to ease my conscience in the lead up to our election!
In 2015, Canada’s #media, declared that #Trudeau & .@liberal_party outflanked the @NDP on leftist policies & for the 1st time in recent history the media supported large deficits & destruction of our country’s finances over a more balanced approach. Let’s stop here for a sec.

May's Brex-shit-show: Sunday a.m. update. 1/ The deal can't pass the Commons 2/ May trying to "move on" to the future trading relationship as a ruse to say "nothing's finalised" 3/ No deal is a bluff. Half the Cabinet would not go thru with it...
2/ Corbyn v clear on #Sky: if May can secure a better deal within 7 days, will consider; if not, Labour will vote it down early December. Very few waverers in PLP on this...
3/ Result: Labour ahead 3 points and big drop in Tory poll numbers. Beyond Westminster, ppl see this as a) Tories surrendering their own bluster-infused red lines b) incompetence c) division...

Permettez-moi un petit #thread, pour vous montrer que vous êtes très certainement en train de passer à côté du plus grand exploit cérébral du siècle (et qu'il se produira - ou non, mais ça m'étonnerait - ce soir).
Ce Monsieur au regard filou s'appelle Nigel Richards. Au #Scrabble anglophone, c'est LA star. 3 fois champion du monde, il a remporté à 11 reprises le plus prestigieux des tournois mondiaux, l'International de Thaïlande.
S'ennuyant dans sa langue natale (ouais c'est un peu fastoche au bout d'un moment ; un dico, t'en as vite fait le tour), le mec s'est mis en tête d'apprendre le dictionnaire francophone par coeur. Il s'est donné 9 semaines, ce qui est raisonnable.

Now we've all caught our breath, here's everything you need to know about the biggest story in British media -- the battle royale for Sky (Thread 👇)
Media giants Comcast, Fox and Disney are all in the running to buy Sky. Why do they want it?
-- Big fans of Sky's technology, like the Sky Q box 📺📡
-- Want to diversify out of the U.S. 🌍
-- Want to beef up to compete with Netflix and Amazon 💪
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
There's a fair bit of personal drama here. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts has a long history of going toe-to-toe with Fox executive chairman Rupert Murdoch and Disney CEO Bob Iger for media dominance. These are astute, battle-hardened deal-makers bloomberg.com/gadfly/article…

It's a good time to be a Sky shareholder -- #Sky shares now trading *above* #Fox's £10.75 offer price, after a stellar result in the Premier League auction last night. Here's a funky chart for you from @TheTerminal Image
@TheStalwart - I know you like a good chart

In a bid to get its #Sky takeover through, #Fox has bolstered concessions around the independence of @SkyNews. What's new?

- Wholly independent editorial board
- Regulatory/govt. oversight of new appointees
- Appointees must have UK experience

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Opponents of the #Fox-#Sky deal having none of it. @Avaaz, @mediareformUK and a group of politicians led by @Ed_Miliband all say blocking the takeover is the only way to restrict Rupert #Murdoch's influence over British media Image
Ball is now back in the CMA's court. Do they accept Fox's behavioral remedies around Sky News, which would fall away if and when Sky is bought by Disney? Or do they block the deal outright? Alice Enders at @EndersAnalysis says the situation is on a ``knife edge''

This could get quite spicy - an aggressive US hedge fund run by billionaire Paul Singer is building a stake in #Sky w/ @scottdeveau
bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
@scottdeveau To be clear, this could just be an innocuous investment. But given Singer's past of sabre-rattling and activism, don't be surprised if they start agitating for a higher bid from #Fox
Note, this guy is known in some parts as the world's most feared investor (credit: @MsNabilaAhmed @cedricsam @scottdeveau) #Fox #Sky bloomberg.com/graphics/2017-…

With #Disney and #Fox waiting in the wings, #Sky reports rising profits, boosted by shows like 1920s sex-and-crime saga ``Babylon Berlin'' bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Asked about the future of @SkyNews, Sky CEO Jeremy Darroch declines to comment. ``I'm not going to give a running commentary''
Darroch also declines to comment on whether @bt_uk content-sharing agreement will reduce any Premier League price hikes @PLComms. The auction is `commercially sensitive', Darroch says. bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Journalists at Sky News face an uncertain few weeks. Story w/ @TW_Seal bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Asked whether staff at Sky News face redundancy, @SkyNewsHead John Ryley said the prospect had not even been discussed, and there'd been no planning for a closure
But remember - Sky made the threat to close Sky News in a submission to regulators, if the channel became an obstacle to its takeover by Fox bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

#Fox-#Sky latest - Second delay for the CMA, now saying they will report by end of Jan, compared to mid-Jan previously. More on @TheTerminal
@TheTerminal At this rate, the race #Fox faces to discuss any possible remedies looks even tighter. Surely the CMA will give itself more time? Can push back final report by 8 weeks bloomberg.com/amp/news/artic…
In summary, more waiting for Mr #Murdoch and all the folk who gave evidence to the regulators e.g. @stevenjbarnett @Alaphia @Avaaz @Ed_Miliband @LordCFalconer @MartinGilbert83 @StewartPurvis

Breaking: 175 #Sky News employees write letter to the CMA, warning about the potential closure of the channel assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/5a38df41…. Signatories include @MarkKleinmanSky, @adamboultonSKY and @IanKingSky
@MarkKleinmanSky @adamboultonSKY @IanKingSky This is what I call an on-message intervention. Remember, the CMA is looking at whether Fox buying Sky would damage media plurality, and whether Fox has a genuine commitment to b/casting stds #Sky #Fox Image
To be clear though, it's *Sky* which has threatened to close the channel, not the CMA. Sky have said that, if the CMA blocked the #Fox deal on media plurality grounds, people shouldn't assume #Sky News would continue. Full background here: bloomberg.com/news/articles/…

Why would #Comcast or #Disney want to buy #Sky? @gerryfsmith and I have some answers bloomberg.com/news/articles/… #Fox
@gerryfsmith Reason 1: global scale. When you're competing with #Netflix and #Amazon, it helps to be worldwide, says @Barclays analyst Kannan Venkateshwar
@gerryfsmith @Barclays Reason 2: buying power and synergies. Sky would be able to negotiate better terms for carrying networks on its pay-TV service, and also for buying content on its channels, says Mostyn Goodwin at @OCC_Strategy

Meanwhile, across the pond in media-land - A Murdoch inside Walt #Disney would bring experience – and baggage bloomberg.com/news/articles/… via @business @anoushasakoui @chrispalmeri @hellierd #Fox #Sky

Scoop today: Murdoch Re-Elected as #Sky Chairman With Backing of Independents bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Nevertheless 'the significant size of the opposition should serve as an indicator to the board that concerns over his position remain,' says Stephen Martin @IoD_Stephen, director general of @The_IoD
Controversy over the takeover by Fox was also raised at the AGM. “Are you confident the CMA won’t unearth new Fox scandals which could derail the bid in the way that the Millie Dowler scandal did back in 2011?” asked @Alaphia, senior campaigner at activist group @Avaaz

Sky faces IoD pressure to remove James Murdoch as chairman bloomberg.com/news/articles/… w/ @hellierd
@hellierd ``The board should listen to the voice of independent investors,'' says @The_IoD's Dr Roger Barker. ``We'd like to think a no vote will give the board strong pause for thought.''
@hellierd “It would be very unconvincing if the board is forced to use the block vote of the Fox shareholder in order to back the re-appointment of James Murdoch,” says @stefanstern #Sky #Fox
