Dutch cargo ship Eemslift Hendrika adrift off Norway after crew evacuate. Footage from Norwegian search & rescue shows some of the 12 crew jumping into the sea from the badly-listing vessel before being rescued by helicopter 🇳🇴
The owners of the abandoned Eemslift Hendrika have hired Boskalis / Smit to attempt to salvage the drifting and dangerously-listing Dutch-flagged vessel. Two tugboats have been despatched from Bergen and Kristiansand tonight. maritime-executive.com/article/salvag… Image
The Dutch-registered Eemslift Hendrika has been abandoned about 60 miles west of Ålesund, Norway. The 112-metre ship specialises in yacht-transport, offering regular services between Norway and Turkey. reuters.com/article/us-nor… Image
Norwegian Coastal Administration: The tugs BB Ocean and Normand Drott reached #EemsliftHendrika last night and are scheduled to tow her to shore today. First a helicopter must lower emergency crew onto the ship so they can connect tow ropes 🇳🇴
24-metre support vessel AQS Tor hasn't changed much since toppling off the deck of stricken Dutch cargo ship Eemslift Hendrika. The tugboat Stadt Sløvåg now aims to bring Tor to shore, probably in the direction of Måløy or Florøy intrafish.no/hendelser/slik…
"Life and health are always the first priority during an incident like this, and it must be safe to carry out the rescue," said NCA's Hans Petter Mortensholm, explaining why #EemsliftHendrika won't be towed until tomorrow. kob.com/news/salvage-o…

. @BaronessKramer: "We have to put iron in the spine of the FCA. Whistleblowers are a citizens army that demand respect. They should be protected and not be the victims of retaliation. What they currently go through is frankly shocking". Great session of @TransparencyTF
Ex Lloyds staffer @Carlier_J87 doing a superb presentation of the uselessness of the FCA - and how it failed to meet its statutory objectives - in mini-bond scandal LC&F and Blackmore Bond. @TransparencyTF event
Blackmore Bond raised millions from investors to fund property developments in 2016-18, but the firm went bust in April 2020 owing £46 million. Now the FCA is trying to wash its hands of any responsibility despite investors' losses. @Carlier_J87 @TransparencyTF

NatWest faces criminal action over money laundering offences. FCA launches criminal action against the former RBS over allegations it failed to detect suspicious activity by a customer who deposited £264 million in cash. via @tomwilson1983 @iainwithers reuters.com/article/us-nat…
Money laundering charges: The FCA alleges NatWest allowed “increasingly large cash deposits” to be paid into a UK-based customer's accounts between November 2011 and October 2016. It's alleged £365m was paid in, including £264m in cash. via @JuliaKollewe theguardian.com/business/2021/…
Prem Sikka suggests the criminal charges against RBS/NatWest could be a ploy to divert attention from FCA's failures, including the fact its former CEO presided over a whitewash of RBS/NatWest GRG after failing to disclose a major conflict-of-interest.

You've simply got to watch this meeting of #Handforth Parish Council planning committee. Kudos to Jackie Weaver for not losing her cool in the face of astonishing rudeness. Who needs Netflix?
Handforth Parish Council owes it's unlikely fame to teenager Shaan, a 17-year-old from London, who found the @zoom_us meeting footage, and 16-year-old Janine Mason, from Stoke-on-Trent, who launched it onto the world stage. cheshire-live.co.uk/news/chester-c…
The person who unearthed the extraordinary Handforth Parish Council zoom meeting footage is on Twitter - as @shaanthepenguin!

That's at least 20 of these inane, cut-and-paste, identical, professions of undying love for Boris Johnson in the past hour, @TwitterSupport. ImageImage
There have been twenty-five more of these inane, copy-and-paste, "bot"-like, badly-spelt tweets praising Boris in the past hour. Luis Filip Mugabe (@SegundaLFVieira) and Aston (@BigMusclesAston) have been particularly active. @TwitterSupport ImageImageImage
Just wondering if this semi-literate Botis Johnson-adoring "bot army" might be the residue of the social-media battalions (paid tweeters) ex-Tory chairman Brandon Lewis hired in February 2018? h/t @MissLyndseyB telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/…

Handy interactive timeline showing all the times "Covid sceptics" Sunetra Gupta, Carl Heneghan, Karol Sikora, Mike Yeadon, Toby Young, Alison Pearson and Julia Hartley Brewer have been utterly wrong about #COVIDー19

time.graphics/line/455000 Image
Another "Covid sceptic" pumping out disinfo about #COVIDー19? Pathologist Clare Craig last Oct tweeted "we're in the midst of a false positive pseudo-epidemic". Now she's emulated Toby Young and deleted all her tweets from 2020. See @NeilDotObrien's thread
In his thread (quote-tweeted above), Tory MP Neil O'Brien examines some of the whackier claims Dr Clare Craig has made about #COVIDー19 in past few months, including the letter she co-signed with David Icke. Image
