2018 Truss met with 5 US libertarian groups that cost taxpayers £5,000
The Heritage Foundation-Trumpian think tank with ties to Rebekah Mercer, funder of Breitbart, Cambridge Analytica and Parler. 1/1
Liz Truss: The Tufton Street Candidate – Byline Times bylinetimes.com/2022/01/18/liz…
The American Enterprise Institute, a neo-conservative think tank
The American Legislative Exchange Council, a right-wing lobbying group funded by corporations that advises law-makers across America
Americans for Tax Reform, a low-tax advocacy group
The Cato Institute
Truss in Thatcher military garb will adopt the radical rights 'Go in hard and fast' approach which will compound the UK's cost of living crisis with her Free Market Forum project pal Matthew Elliott of the IEA. If she replaces Johnson, expect a new level of Tory Hell post Brexit.
This is absolutely the right time for Libertarian extremists to exploit the ravages of Covid, climate denialism/sewage in rivers, dismantling of judiciary, post Brexit deregulation, selling off of NHS and BBC, transfer public wealth into private hands. The clean slate approaches
Truss is in league with the worst of the worst, her 'Global network of Liberty' is free market paradise for the 1%, the rest of you can watch as she twists the radical rights knife into an already Tory tortured UK. She is the favourite to replace Johnson #GTTO #ToryScum

History shows that Iraq's missing billions in 2004 were part of the US wiping away a whole culture and country and replacing it with free market corporations that destroyed over 200 state controlled firms. Fast forward to Dido's absconding of £37 billion of taxpayers money 1/1
during the pandemic, another £35 billion that is owed to the NHS since officially leaving the EU in 2020, another £4,3 billion written off by the Govt through fraud last week and a devastating pattern of economic violence emerges courtesy of right wing libertarians. #ToryLies
As UK trade collapses, EU funding is replaced with pitiful crumbs from the Govt's table, deregulation is rapidly shoehorned in allowing multinationals to asset strip companies and flood the UK with cheap imports banned in the EU. Brexit is the segue into full blown privatisation.

This shows why traitors like Matthew and Sarah Elliott vested interests in changing UK politics to far right libertarianism takes years of serious planning Read/RT #ToryScum
Brexit-Loving Koch Acolytes Are Getting Rich Off Climate Change Denial in the UK splinternews.com/brexit-loving-…
Elliotts took funding from Koch and Mercer to pave the way towards smaller Govt and climate denial/deregulation, remember how #COP26 went tits up? The Tories have opened the floodgates to intense fossil fuel mining in the north sea, paid by corporate free market libertarians.
Sheer number of right wing think tanks supposedly non profit are keen to hide who their funders are, it is a scandal of the highest degree that corporate money dictates Govt policy, Brexit would not have happened if legislation was in place to stop disaster capitalist wreak havoc

Brexit+Covid= Double whammy of crises for UK, golden opportunities for the 1%. 'The best time to invest is when there is blood on the streets.' Project Fear is the twin of the War on Terror, hard truths emerging as UK's self inflicted economic violence of Brexit & Covid impacts.
The 'cleaning out' of the Middle East of terrorists went hand in hand with free trade frontier capitalism. #Brexit hidden corporatist agenda of the clean slate is flush with far right libertarians all residing under Truss's Global network of Liberty #GTTO
Parallels in history to what is happening in the UK are plain to see, Friedman/Pinochet in the 70's, Russia in the 90's. Brexit/Covid sees Tories take the money & run offering up NHS to US healthcare companies, the cost of living crisis next, deregulation on tap all predicted.

People of the UK, Brexit has ushered in an era of rapid privatisation, total division, demonising of your neighbours all during a pandemic, which for the Tories was a goldrush, they love Covid, they love the deaths, they treat you and your families like something they stepped in.
Johnson championing the UK's vaccine roll out as 'the best in the world, better than the EU' is total BS. Of 30 million jabs in UK, 13 million Pfizer were imported from EU, 5 million from India and non-trivial amounts from NL. UK has only provided 20% for a 68 million population.
Don't think for 1 second that the Tories will stick around to help with the economic and emotional fallout after they've got their titles and illicit gains from your taxes shared with their mates. Laws for accountability have gone, post Brexit will be someone else's mess, yours.

#PMQs Johnson championing UK vaccine rollout isn't what it seems.
Of 30 million jabs in UK, 13 million Pfizer were imported from EU, 5 million from India and non-trivial amounts from NL. This actually means the UK has only provided 20% of its 68 million population
The reason why the EU is also at 20% of vaccinating its citizens is that it gave away a third of its supplies to Mexico, Chile, US and its biggest recipient was the UK.
It makes me bloody sick to hear Johnson twisting the facts and demonizing the EU for flag shagging 'wins'
EU producers also exported another third to its member states. An early decision was taken by EU states that it would be unacceptable for some states to protect their populations while others looked on with empty hands and full hospitals. This is solidarity, ethics built on trust

After 11 years the Tories have consistently shown the public that they're in permanent campaign mode, promises remain under-delivered, the lies and corruption pile up, Johnson praising, clapping for the NHS only to destroy it in pursuit of privatisation by stealth. #GTTO
Just like the Bush and Trump administrations, the Tories issued contracts secretively without tender to inexperienced pals and industries to shamelessly profit from the pandemic. Their immorality knows no bounds, public outrage elicits a stern Govt rebuke, 'put up or shut up.'
When crisis after crisis impacts on the UK's entire infrastructure the response of Govt is not 'How can we help?' it is 'How do we get a piece of the action?' The Tories recourse will not change it will always be to divide, devour and blame while they get rich in the process.
