1) I found this interesting
Just wondered if "The Old Guard" tweet was leading to more than one particular drop.
The first was easily noticed.
We remember a recent drop about the dismantling of "The Old Guard".
The excerpt from The Karate Kid.
#WWG1WGA
2) There were 22 days in between this drop and his tweet.
Q drop #22
3)

22 =MAGA

So for everyone wondering if there will be civil unrest...
Herein lies the answer.

The final day of the second week of the Sheffield United ownership trial at the High Court will get underway at 10.30 with Yusuf Giansiracusa expected to finish giving his evidence. Nothing else newsworthy happening today is there? 👀 #sufc #twitterblades #TheresaMay
For all the latest on Theresa May’s resignation, please follow my colleague @annholmesjourno. We’ll be getting underway with the tenth day of the Sheffield United ownership trial at the High Court in just a few minutes time #sufc #twitterblades

When #NigelFarage left #UKIP he started to re-invent himself. He's not talking about immigration any more. He's talking about being the saviour of democracy, and leaving UKIP to be the extremists. He's trying to attract a more moderate voter. The polls seem to show this working
I wonder, if he does well if the #EuropeanElections2019 and the #Brexit mess in Parliament continues, it might give some #ERG members the confidence to cross the floor. Will they have confidence that they can re-elected on a #BrexitParty ticket.
That would then likely cause a general election as the government would not be able to pass anything. The #Conservatives would not have time to sort out a new leader so #TheresaMay could end up leading them into it. They could get slaughtered.

#Brexit news for today:

Nigel Adams, Minister for Wales, and Governement whip has resigned the #Cabinet over #TheresaMay's way forward.

1/n

You can hear #TheresaMay's reaction from here

2/n
So the splitting of the #ToryParty continues. Where will it end? And can we expect resignations from #Labour if #Corbyn is seen as giving up too much to #TheresaMay during the discussions tonight.

Thread:

I doubt the EU-27 will accept the PM’s new 22 May date for the extension of #Article50 #Brexit deadline for at least four reasons:
- They’ve been stung before by #TheresaMay saying she needs “just X weeks”, with that then turning out to be longer
- They know she needs time for the legislation, even if #MV4 gets through #Commons and that there will still be internal opposition to it at that stage

We have reached the end of the road with this Tory disaster, this quantum of #Brexit created & destroyed by & for Tories, a Frankenstein Brexit which now should tear to pieces the party that made it. Schrödinger's Brexitstein Monster, the movie. But what should @UKLabour do now?
First, it is really important for all of us in every party to know what Brexiters & #TheresaMay hoped we never would know: we were able to trigger this #Brexit attempt to become independent because by the terms of the TEU we were in fact independent & free to use #Article50.
As @joannaccherry has insisted in Parliament (something also said almost in passing by Kenneth Clarke), we can #RevokeArticle50 now to avert a disastrous #NoDealBrexit. That doesn't have to be the end of Brexiter hopes. It gives us the time that we need to reflect & rethink.

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).

Edmund Burke (1729–97) referred to an 'economy of truth'. That was transmuted by Robert Armstrong (head of the British Civil Service) who spoke of being 'economical with the [valuable] truth'. The genius of our times has been to abandon that cumbersome & limiting truth standard.
We have made a surprisingly smooth transition to lies, the lie standard, & an economy of lies. The scarcity value of truth was fool's gold when compared with the wealth & abundance of lies. What a dark & starkly bleak world that now seems, brightened only by flashes of paradox.
How sad, constricting & wrong Epicurus' follower Lucretius had been: "The energy of intellect won out. The fiery battlements no longer stood as limit to his mind: it now ranged free in time & space, returning soon with trophies of his victory: what things could be or never be."

1. Theresa May claims she has won 'legally binding' changes to her deal
2. But it's not what she promised she would get
3. MPs look like they'll still vote against

There's a misogyny at the heart of mainstream Trans politics seen in the undertone of hateful & violent threat or allusion. It starts with dehumanising women as scum, Terfs, nazis. That then allows violent fantasy to be normalised. It's a visceral hatred of women & it SICKENS me
Anyone on the left @OwenJones84 still deluding themselves that the selfID movement is serving trans people or is progressive needs to ask themselves why the hell women wouldn't be concerned about sharing vulnerable space with males prepared to dehumanise them, even wish them dead
The Tory govt has put forward proposals on self-ID & then spectacularly failed to facilitate a responsible national political conversation. Like cowards they have ducked & dived & hidden from a discussion of their very own proposals. Instead they have left a dangerous vacuum

Writing in @guardian about law politics & #Brexit, @prospect_clark refers to stealthy “leave means leave” FB campaigns for a #NoDealBrexit. @AdamRamsay, @paulhilder et al: if poison is found in our veins, do we await the post-mortem? Is there an antidote? theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
In that piece @prospect_clark points out (as he must) that the date on which we leave the #EU is set by its law, not ours. A #NoDealBrexit will place us at the mercy of all. Our MPs control UK laws only, But until #Brexit-day we have control of one thing: we can #RevokeArticle50.
It should by now be clear that there is no deal that is better than the one that we have. Within the #EU we have some control, have some part in shaping its laws & the way its laws are applied. 'Take back control' is a slogan wrapped round a lie that in the EU we have no control.

1/7 Here’s a sad little tale for future social historians of #Brexit, if they haven’t been hunted down & eaten by then.

Once upon a time, I worked for an amazing company which, thanks to its liberal attitudes & fair share of profits, built a unique bond between all its workers.
2/7 It was so special that, long after it was sold, asset stripped & went bust a group of us, representing management to warehouse & now good friends, still meets regularly for a ruby to catch up on families, discuss our ailments & reminisce about how lucky we were to work there.
3/7 We never, ever speak about politics.

Until last night.

Just when I thought we’d got away with it Person 1 said,

“So what do we think about Brexit & #TheresaMay?”

“I DO NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT! I’M SICK OF IT!”,
came an instant, ferocious reply from Person 2.

🇬🇧My parents came to the UK as German Jewish refugees from a so-called 'civilised' country.🇩🇪

NEVER EVER assume you won't, in some post #Brexit nightmare, find yourself forced to flee the UK , jobless, hungry, desperate, finding yourself in a refugee camp/stuck on some border!
Theresa May is minded to scrap the Human Rights Act post #Brexit
For those unaware of what the Human Rights Act actually is:
Check this out: legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1998/42/…
Read it through carefully.
Hitler also scrapped rights for Jews, Gays, Disabled, Roma & some sects.

🇬🇧The gradual erosion of everything that makes up a civil society has been happening for many years.🇬🇧
The demonization of 'the other' is fuelled by the press, on TV & via our OWN MPs.
EU CITIZENS are:
queue-jumpers,
citizens of nowhere
immigrants
migrants
swarms

Down the rabbit hole & into the kitchen. Something & someone is cooking. Duck soup with too much paranoia? I present my thoughts while transcribing the #InstituteForStatecraft ’s Chris Donelly’s talk about the #IntegrityInitiative:
[Talking bloke with kitchen behind him] How to cook...what? Statecraft? Integrity? Whole-food fruitcake? Anyway not vegetarian, heavy stuff, meat: governance, change, disinformation, malign influence, democracy. Malign? A hint of crushed paranoia? Democracy now under threat?
[At desk, a laptop] An educational program? Sounds respectable. Must have some solid, peer reviewed, well-defined basis of reason & fact, I suppose. Educating policy makers, decision makers? He sets himself high, this fellow. To track, expose & counter…? Decision makers do that?

Da prime indiscrezioni solo 86 Conservatori dovrebbero aver votato CONTRO #TheresaMay. Ogni numero < 100 sarebbe una grande vittoria per la PM.

Theresa May can't go forward or backward. UK parliament ready to take her down, but she's been the dead wolf since day 1 and she's still here. People without parliamentary democracies don't understand the drama & entertainment they are missing. #BrexitVote
"The vote could be delayed until the day before UK falls out of the EU with no deal." Say what you will about Theresa May, she has created a world where women no longer have to try harder than men, where even the most mediocre woman can hold high office. 🤣
Here's Jacob Rees-Mogg moaning about people "dusting down precedents from the 1860s." 🤣🤣 #TheresaMay #BrexitShambles #BrexitVote

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

2. "Generosity is a virtue, but unlimited generosity is a fast route to bankruptcy.

Humanitarianism is commendable, but not when you’re demanding that others share the burdens and expense.

A very liberal immigration policy is wise, but helter-skelter migration isn’t."
#Merkel
3. "Knowing how to set broad but clear limits is one of the essentials of conservative governance. Merkel’s failure is that she ceased to be conservative."

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed
