#CambridgeAnalyica’s Brittany Kaiser has disclosed 800 pages of previously unreleased documents

They show:

1) CA started working for Trump in Sept, 2015

2) AIQ was operating as single legal entity with CA - something that had
been denied

3) “LeaveEU project approved” 3/11/15
The documents appear to reveal illegal coordination btw Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign & pro-Trump super PAC

They also appear to reveal that Nix lied to Parliament & to Congress

The companies in charge of our health data in UK & US, #Palantir & #FacultyAI, are linked to CA!
Designed by #CambridgeAnalytica
& used by #Trump in his 2016 campaign & in LeaveUK’s Brexit campaign, this was a social warfare tool - designed to open cracks in societies & hollow out democracies - turned against our own populations.
#Palantir #FacultyAI
The collapse of #CambridgeAnalytica brought few consequences for their employees

Nix & others set up their own lucrative data consultancies/lobby firms or joined others

Behind the scenes, the powerful don’t distance themselves from CA

They just want to learn their secrets.
Cambridge Analytica is Britain’s the least trusted brand. The NHS is the most trusted

And yet, #Palantir & #FacultyAI - companies with links to #CambridgeAnalytica - run the NHSX digital platform & have access all our health data, incldg genetic material.
According to @chrisinsilico, senior Palantir employees worked with #CambridgeAnalytica on harvesting Facebook data.

Here Palantir’s founder, right-wing billionaire Peter Thiel, gives an insight into his approach.

“You ask for forgiveness not permission.”
It seems clear that Cummings, Bannon & Trump etc. never had any intention of “asking permission”

They’re rolling out a well-planned, well-resourced, Intelligence-backed strategy which puts science & technology - & crucially genomics - at society’s heart.
Genome research has HUGE potential social & cost benefits, not just in medicine

In the right hands & with the appropriate checks & balances it is crucial

But when it is rolled out by govts in conjunction with companies like #Palantir, scrutiny is needed.
Excellent summary by @peterjukes

New #CambridgeAnalytica documents prove involvement with Leave EU & official Vote Leave campaigns & further evidence of connection btw Bannon, Farage & Banks

Our focus must be on what they are doing NOW! #PalantirPlan

1 - The fact that the govt ignored SAGE's advice on #circuitbreaker lockdown doesn't come as a big surprise as SAGE has been increasingly sidelined since the setting up of the #JointBiosecurityCentre in July

The JBC is part of the "NHS" Test and Trace Service run by @didoharding
2 - The #JointBiosecurityCentre runs the govt's #COVID19 response

Set up in May, it was originally headed by Tom Hurd (MI6)

He was replaced by Clare Gardiner (GCHQ)

This suggests it sits within UK intelligence structures

Over the last 6 months, the JBC has released no minutes ImageImage
3 - Whilst little is known about the staffing & membership of this body, sources suggest that there is no "centre"

Instead, they say, the #JBC is scattered across offices in Whitehall & beyond, including intelligence agencies & research institutes

“Judge Barrett. Is it illegal to intimidate voters at the polls?” @amyklobuchar

“I can’t apply the law to hypothetical facts. I can’t answer questions like that”

Wow! #AmyConeyBarret refuses to acknowledge the fact that voter intimidation is illegal #ACB
Earlier today, Judge Barrett - Trump’s selection to replace #RBG in the Supreme Court - refused to say #DonaldTrump doesn't have the Constitutional power to unilaterally delay the election.

He does not have that power.
“And so by malice, stealth & brutishness a pattern is set. Less & less transparency. Less & less scrutiny. Less & less accountability. Until they’re entirely unleashed to bundle aside the truth & speak only their truths."

"I am not confident - & nor is anybody confident - that the Tier 3 proposals for the highest rates, if we did the absolute base case & nothing more, would be enough to get on top of it.” Whitty

Did the govt just announce a #COVID19 strategy that they are not confident will work?
Whitty goes on: “That’s why there is a lot of flexibility in the tier 3 level for local authorities, guided by the directors of public health, to actually go up that range so they can do significantly more than the base, b/c the base won’t be sufficient huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/local-lo…
After months of excluding
local & regional public health experts from outbreak management (centralising data & contracting testing to companies like Serco etc), No.10 now going to get local govts involved in deciding & enforcing restrictions

1/ Is this the “smoking gun” of the #EducationScandal?

NHS Professionals - the organisation that supplies temporary staff to the NHS - “received some important training updates”

Staff are told they “should not escalate any #COVID19 cases who work or attend educational settings”
2/. This document appears to give clear instructions to Tier 2 (national) contract tracers not to pass on single positive #COVID19 cases in schools, colleges & universities to Local Health Protection Teams.

I’m no expert, but surely this is not good outbreak management advice?
3/ This would presumably mean having to wait for a #COVID19 outbreak before the Local Health Protection Teams even knew there has been a positive test in the school or university

In Scotland, by contrast, there are daily updates in local areas citing individual cases in schools

1. “Why were we faffing around with Excel when the scientists were telling us not to?" @skynewsniall

“The system was designed in conjunction with our scientists... at PHE & the JBC they're all scientists who have been involved in this." @RishiSunak
2. “Scientists” didn’t decide on using Excel. It’s a reporting/admin tool

The scientists would have told IT what info the database needed to hold. The IT team should have designed a database fit for that purpose rather than using an old version of Excel.
3. Sunak is also allowed to claim: “We are now testing 250,000 people a day”

That’s the figure for tests “processed” NOT people tested

When @MattHancock claimed 226,000 people were being tested on 21/9, the actual figure turned out to be around 82,000.

1/. Ten days ago, @MattHancock launched "#GenomeUK: the future of healthcare", a major new 10-year genomic healthcare strategy

Happening on a Saturday without much fanfare, it didn't get much news coverage beyond the biomedical press

And yet this is big.
2/. The launch of a new decade-long national health strategy should be big news at anytime, but coming amidst the #COVID19 pandemic & with the potential to shift genome research to the heart of No.10's programme for govt, it is of particular significance.
3/. Genome research has HUGE potential social & cost benefits, not just in medicine

In the right hands & with the appropriate checks & balances it is very important but, when it is being rolled out by this govt in conjunction with companies like #Palantir, scrutiny is needed.
