Lawrence Fox is taking part on the Anti Lockdown protest in central London.

He said the 1st thing he'd do as Mayor is: "Make protests legal."

Mr Fox clearly doesn't understand what the London Mayor's powers are. 🤦‍♂️

Also, #WearAMask
2/ @MetPoliceEvents are currently escorting anti lockdown protesters through central London.

Suddenly they're not very keen on wrestling people to the ground....
3/ The protest in central London appears to have a very big contingent of COVID deniers and anti maskers.

Piers Corbyn started it claiming it's all a hoax & that the vaccine id going to kill hundreds of thousands. @MetPoliceEvents did NOTHING bar arrest someone filming Corbyn.

Hi @Keir_Starmer, @AngelaRayner

I think Labour's Candidate for the Hartlepool by-election fails your new social media conduct requirements for being selected.

Can @labourpress please address this ASAP?
2/ and what is this @Keir_Starmer @HartlepoolCLP??
3/. Paul also celebrated the bombing of Libya and seemed to advocate Zimbabwe face the same fate...

This is grim @HartlepoolCLP

When I started on Twitter in 2018, I followed George Galloway - boosted his work. I didn't know much about him bar his anti war stuff.

I stop following a long time ago, but I want to apologize for enabling him.

I try to use my platform responsibly and learn from my mistakes.
2/ We all make mistakes on social media. It's how we address them that is important.

I followed Galloway for too long out of misplaced loyalty & just plain ignorance.

That's not acceptable. It's on me.

All I can do is try to show I'm learning and trying to do better.
3/ Galloway is just one example.

Too many people turn a blind eye to problematic views until it's too late, either out of misplaced loyalty and/or fear of a backlash.

It can be hard to call out people you previously admired or believed in, but it's the right thing to do.

1/ THREAD It's upsetting as a disabled person with a son who has Autism to see @novaramedia media ignoring the backlash from @AaronBastani's interview with Peter Singer

He says disabled babies aren't equal to non disabled kids &
those with learning disabilities can't be raped
2/ I like @novaramedia on some things, which is why it's even more disappointing they've not said anything in response.

Disabled people are often used as a campaign tool, but when we raise concerns, we're ignored.

Singer has a long history if frankly abhorrent ableism. See next
3/ Singer in his 1979 book; Practical Ethics

“Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time. They are not persons the life of a newborn is of less value than the life of a pig, a dog, or a chimpanzee.”
