Compilation of Parliamentary Financial Links to Private #Healthcare
This represents the latest list of recent or present financial links between #parliamentarians and #individuals or #companies involved in private healthcare.
up-to-date as of March 2nd 2014. It has increased !
#MPs and #Lords are able to vote on legislation, even when they have a direct #financial interest.
This happened with the Health and Social Care Act, which saw the #NHS being forced into a world of an external market.
The legislation was written for industry, by industry and is part of the overall plan for it's demise and the eventual takeover by #private health insurance companies.

"The #UK recorded 11,000 daily Covid-19 cases for the first time since February, even as it reached the milestone of vaccinating more than 80% of adults." Image
"the virus will concentrate in [unvaccinated] school-age populations, which will eventually become a reservoir & driver of any ensuing Delta variant epidemic, as well as being a hotspot in which new mutations may arise"

What if vaccinees are a reservoir?

1 in every 6 couples in #Germany are currently unable to have children. #Watch The business of fertility – egg donation and surrogacy in Europe:
Egg donation & surrogacy are illegal in Germany but also a lucrative business in other parts of Europe (I would imagine eastern Europe particularly). I wonder if this business model already exists in Nigeria and what the position of the constitution is.
110K IVF cycles are performed in #Germany alone every year. (working with North Cyprus prices of €4k ave. as an estimate), that’s at least €440M/ N2.6Bn on IVF treatments annually. Interestingly, sperm donation is legal but egg donation is illegal (and I think I know why).

#OperationTrojanShield

Wow! Big news!!

With this operation, #Encrochat #Sky #MPC & other encrypted networks being infiltrated, does this mean the end of #Drugs #Corruption #OrganisedCrime ?🤔

Hmmm!

It's a brilliant operation BUT may have unintended consequences

A #Thread
I got sucked into doing some amateur study of the economy of drug trafficking because of brilliant TV shows.

When you study the numbers, understand the geo-politics, social, criminal & financial elements behind the global industry... you realise just how powerful it really is!🎬
If you trace the industry from;
- Areas of production
- Transit routes
- End Markets

Then look at the money flows;
-Peso exchange
-Hawala networks
-Offshore
-Trade based money laundering
etc

Then the operational groups🧐

It's mind blowing in scale & influence @InSightCrime 🤯

Landing In Madrid, #spain🇪🇸
If these farmers were Brazilian, they would have to leave a preservation area 50m from the Jarama River even farmland were before the law.
In video, Irrigation pivot touches the banks, this would give the farmer a big fine.
Who care about environment?
Why 50m of preservation area? Below you can see the width of the river and the preservation area (buffer zone) required by law.
#brazil🇧🇷
I also didn't see permanent preservation areas destined to wild fauna and flora on these farms, as well as riverbanks(not included), which vary between 20% and 80%, as shown in the map below.
In other words, if you buy 100 hectares you can only use 80 in the eastern #brazil🇧🇷

"The priority now is to guarantee universal access to vaccines. That is why my government has launched a multilateral initiative “Vaccines for All” which addresses the global challenge of vaccine production & distribution in all its complexity."
-🇪🇸 PM @sanchezcastejon at #WHA74
"We propose to act simultaneously on 3 fronts that... hinder equitable access to vaccines. First of all we must share knowledge of all kinds, incl. the transfer of know-how & technology and aspects related to intellectual property."

The blackmailing #Morocco uses against the #EU& #Spain,and the use of two sensitive topics (#migration & #terrorism) has not started with what happened in #Ceuta. It has been the case along the #EU-#Morocco relations’ history. A quick flashback:
1:used to push #EU to accept #Morocco’s claims to join the #EU in the 90s after being lonely/unwanted in its natural continent,the #AU(b/c of its illegal military #occupation of the neighbouring #WesternSahara)->the #EU submitted but proposed an association agreement instead
2:migration used as key element during negotiations of the 2000 #Association_Agreement to maximise the funds provided to #Morocco by the #EU under the agreement and to get what the #EU calls “Advanced status” under the #ENP (European Neighbouring Policy) with related advantages

I've studied the #recoveryfund proposal of the EU for a year, and here're my 'five cents'. Thread.

First of all, the #RF has very little to do with #Corona .

The criteria used to distribute the funds are dominated by one factor: the GDP per capita. 1/14
reaction.life/eu-recovery-fu…
This implies, quite simply, that the aim of the Fund is to set up fiscal transfers between the economically weaker and stronger nations, or a 'fiscal union'.

Secondly, this is been done to compensate #Italy , #Spain and other economically weak nations on their... 2/
...membership in the common currency, the #Euro .

Thirdly, euro was created to serve the interests of the capital owners by eliminating currency risk within the eurozone.

Euro has been an economic 'straitjacket' strangling weak nations and pushing them...3/
