IF IT's MILD

drive ambulances

why is the govt desperately trying to recruit teachers who've left / retired

reducing the self isolation period from 10 to 7 days

asking hospitals to prepare for mass casualty events next month
how are hospitals going to separate out #Omicron from #Delta patients, given both can infect you at the same time - they are *separate* variants

we don't need a #Delta #Omicron super variant where the *supposed* mild #Omicron combines with the deadlier #Delta variant!!!!!!!
I could really go on, but I just can't

oh, except to say

why the *fuck* aren't all hospital staff being issued with FPP3 masks

who will care for us, if 50% of hospital staff end up isolating 2 weeks from now, when everyone rings 999 after xmas mixing

A thread about drug smuggling, the British Empire, and the ways in which historical wrongdoing by the Establishment persists into the present day. 🧐🧵🌳🍃🍂⛓ #EstablishmentPsychopathy #history #ToriesOut #OpiumWar #ColonialViolence
It’s generally well known that the Opium Wars of the mid nineteenth century were launched by Britain against China in order to benefit British drug smugglers… 🤨🇬🇧🇨🇳 #OpiumWars #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China
After all, even the National Army Museum – not typically regarded as a bastion of anti-Establishment lefties – states this frankly in its displays on the Opium Wars. #BritishEmpire #ColonialViolence #China

yesterday I complained about BOJO's xmas message re boosters for Christians, as earlier in the day the media reported how the Pakistani community is less than 55% vaccinated, today I read this:

Un-policed & often unenforceable anti-corruption laws have made the UK the global money-laundering capital for a post-Soviet elite, severely damaging Britain’s international reputation & the rule of law.

Almost a quarter of the ministers who attend cabinet have accepted donations from just three well-connected ex-Russians.

Ministers whose offices or constituencies benefited include Dominic Raab, Rishi Sunak & 5 others who attend Cabinet.

A Russian oligarch with close ties to the Kremlin has secretly funded the husband of Lubov Chernukhin, a Russian-born donor to the Tory Party.

Chernukhin has given £1.7 MILLION to the @Conservatives over the past eight years

"SNP have accused Conservative government of “shafting” Scotland as it emerged the European Union has awarded Ireland almost €1 billion (£850m) for compensation for Brexit, while Scotland has been given just £172 million from a UK fund set up to succeed a major Brussels scheme."
"The party said that ahead of the EU referendum in 2016, leading Brexiteers Boris Johnson and Michael Gove promised that the Scottish Government would be given £1.5bn in funding."
"Vote Leave campaign’s main leaflet in Scotland said: "Scotland sends more than £1.5 billion, a year to Brussels."

A much BIGGER LIE than the £350 million on the little 'ol red bus!!

The UK, where a group called @VoteLeave conned the public into voting for huge economic self-harm, then infiltrated and took over the @Conservatives, managed to get themselves elected with a huge majority into government on the back of disinformation and deceit, have since.......
...lied to the Queen, unlawfully prorogued @UKParliament, hidden - then ignored - a report that shows Russian interference into our electoral process, threatened to break international law, handed out £billions of public money to their ultra-rich donors/mates for contracts...
...with no tendering process - huge amounts of the products supplied by these means are not fit for purpose and are being stored in containers costing the public huge amounts in storage rent, used £400k of public funds to settle @pritipatel's bullying case, shown many examples...

1/ Here’s how I feel about the language used by @BBCNews @SkyNews @LBC and all the other British media RE: #channeldeaths

I came here at the age of 5, my family were refugees escaping the Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi!
I’m currently a taxpaying contributing British citizen
2/Seeing the way the #ToryCorruption government uses connotations and terminology to whip up a frenzy from their xenophobic and racist voters (and Britons at large) makes me feel sick
This country was built by White people and PoC alike! And will forever be that way going forward
3/ PoC/ BAME such as @sajidjavid @SadiqKhan @pritipatel etc all came here as economic migrants seeking a better life - few years ago Sajid and Sadiq were competing about whose dad came with the least in their pockets!

Ultimately the HUMANS who died could have been their parents

England’s "flagship" test-&-trace service is STILL spending more than £1m a day on private consultants - an “eye-watering” waste of taxpayers’ money that is failing to cut Covid infection levels.

The average DAILY contractor rate is £1,100.

#ToryBritain

theguardian.com/world/2021/nov…
Dr Jenny Harries, CEO of the UK Health Security Agency, who is responsible for test & trace, told MPs in July there was a “very detailed ramp-down plan” to cut the number of consultants.

But latest figures show that at the end of October it STILL employed 1,230 consultants.
New contracts worth millions of pounds are STILL being awarded to private consultancy firms, despite repeated pledges to curb their use.

The test-and-trace system has a £37 BILLION two-year budget - equivalent to almost a fifth of the annual #NHS England budget.

The Government trick voters into believing they're all FOR free-speech & AGAINST "nanny-state" interventionism.

But the Right has a recurrent obsession with pro-censorship, anti-free-speech legislation, & make repeated attempts to control what people see & hear.
I'm going to put to one side the BANNING of teaching of anti-capitalist views in schools, the concerning "free speech" measures introduced to CONTROL debate in Universities & the disproportionate obsession with antisemitism between 2015 & 2019, as I've written about these before.
Following the original video nasties moral panic in the mid-1980s, Mary Whitehouse & other right-wing reactionaries, supported by the frothing right-wing press, campaigned to ban some horror films available on video, & tough legislation was introduced restricting choice. Image

Thread (1/8)

This thread explains why Ken Clarke’s comment about elected dictatorships should be taken seriously.

We still have time to save UK democracy, but we do not have time to waste.
(2/8)
Ken Clarke said:
“Boris is … impatient with constitutional constraints. He gets angry if courts or parliament interfere. We are dangerously close to the “elected dictatorship” that Lord Hailsham warned us about half a century ago.”

A Govt-approved Covid testing provider (Cignpost Diagnostics, which trades as ExpressTest) is being investigated by the UK’s data privacy watchdog over plans to sell customer’s DNA for medical research.

How long before it's linked to #ToryCorruption?

thetimes.co.uk/article/testin…
Two minutes on Google: Nick Markham is Co Founder of covid testing company Cignpost Diagnostics & was the former deputy leader of the @Conservatives in Westminster council. In 2020 he was appointed Lead NED at the DWP, where he works closely with & advises the Secretary of State.
Obviously there's *nothing to see here* when a well known Tory, working closely with Government, profits from his proximity to & support for a catastrophically corrupt & failing crony Government.

Message from2019:Imagine a new deadly airborne virus swept across the world that without simple protection, would result in death & long term disability for millions. Imagine if powerful rich companies didn’t care, especially as
Affording the temporary protection meant disruption to cash flow. Would you believe it if I told you that the elite decide to dupe the population into thinking it was all a hoax, a bit like a cold, and normalised the idea that the most vulnerable weren’t worth saving,
That preventable death & disease wasn’t a thing? And that great chunks of society fell for it? That despite over 5 million deaths globally, mounting evidence of harm, vaccines, still the elite got their way? 2021 update: it happened

BREAKING NEWS: Harper Colllins state that they are NOT in talks with Matt Hancock about a book deal.

#ToryLies

Did Matt Hancock MP create an entirely fictional story?

Mr Hancock last night told the Mail: 'I have been approached to write a book, but no decisions have been made.'

Is this is case of an elected MP creating a fake story to distract from #ToryCorruption scandal?

#HancockLied
"Ex-health secretary in talks with HarperCollins over blow-by-blow account of 'heated' lockdown rows with ministers, aides, scientists and medics"

The Daily Mail puts this firmly on Matt Hancock's testimony, direct words to the Mail.

Just how deep does #ToryCorruption run in Britain?

Has the UK Government appointed Ministers based on their knowledge & direct experience of Corporate 'divide-and-conquer' strategy?

What has this got to do with UK Home Secretary Priti Patel?

tobaccotactics.org/wiki/priti-pat…
Priti Patel is one of the most controversial politicians in modern UK history.

She's a hard-right populist nationalist free-market fundamentalist, who has broken the Ministerial Code on at least three separate occasions, including "strong evidence" of bullying civil servants.
Priti Patel is perhaps best known for her relentlessly inflammatory, divisive, toxic & dangerously irresponsible rhetoric, especially around the demonization of asylum seekers & migrants, & those who professionally or otherwise have a responsibility to support or defend them.

Tory MPs have been writing “sponsored content” online for the Betting & Gaming Council, a lobbying group campaigning for the gambling industry.

Of course they have.

They are unfit to govern.

They include Jack Brereton, MP for Stoke-on-Trent South and a government aide who wrote an article published on the ConservativeHome website on Monday urging ministers to make sure the gambling review does “nothing to put the industry’s competitiveness at risk.
Mark Jenkinson wrote one of the sponsored pieces in July. He declared an Ascot hospitality box in June worth £1,400, paid for by the BCG.

Private equity firms spent £33BILLION buying up British firms in the first half of this year!

£530m takeover of 178yr old LV, founded to help Liverpool’s poor bury their dead, by US private equity firm Bain Capital means LV would no longer be owned by its 1.2m members.
Private equity refers to investment funds organised as limited partnerships that buy & restructure companies not publicly traded on a stock exchange.

Private equity predators have become notorious for taking quick profits while slashing jobs & leaving behind long-term problems.
There is a debate around the distinction between private equity & foreign direct investment (FDI), and whether to treat them separately. The difference is blurred on account of private equity not entering the country through the stock market.

Shortly after a Tory MP was first elected in 2005, a business which he owned 72% of was sold for £13million - yet now he's facing bankruptcy proceedings over unpaid taxes that could result in him having to step down?

How do you burn through TEN MILLION?

theguardian.com/politics/2021/…
I (clearly) don't know how bankruptcy works, & the article doesn't really explain. So you can run up £5k of debt - even though you have enormous wealth, & you just get to keep it? Can someone explain it to me please?
