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…
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
M. Elliott has been credited for being "one of the most formidable political strategists in Westminster”. Sarah Elliott is a rabid Trump supporter, with a long history of working for US libertarian figureheads such as fossil fuel magnates-Koch brothers…
Tax Payers Alliance is a shady UK think tank who are "fundamental to the Conservatives' political strategy", which is to destroy public confidence in politicians' ability to deliver public services, thereby paving the way for cuts' TPA's voice of the tax payer spiel is Grade A BS
TPA was founded by Matthew Elliott, who founded Eurosceptic think tank Business for Britain as well as Conservative Friends of Russia, Big Brother Watch and the NOtoAV campaign during the 2011 Alternative Vote referendum. 2015, Elliot was chief executive of the Vote Leave #GTTO
TPA was modelled on a similar campaign in the US Americans for Tax Reform. In a 2017 speech to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, a US right-wing think tank, Matthew Elliott told the Michigan audience he felt like he was “coming home”.
He is right wing acolyte sh*t of Trump
Elliott revealed that he had been coming to the US “for over 14 years to learn my campaign techniques and to learn how to set up a new taxpayer group from Grover Norquist and the Americans for Tax Reform”.
Norquist is the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform. While the group does not disclose its donors, Norquist is known to have received money from a network of major Republican supporters including billionaire Koch Family Foundations.
You should also know that Elliott also serves on the advisory board of the New Culture Forum, a right-wing think tank which aims to challenge contemporary cultural debates in the UK and was founded by Ukip Assembly Member Peter Whittle.
The problem is everything is in place for the right wing disaster capitalist takeover of the UK, the clean slate, deregulation en masse, demonising of the EU, UK trade, lives and livelihoods destroyed, the NHS/BBC on their last legs, Brexit was a Trojan Horse for post Brexit Hell
Multiple attacks on the entire UK infrastructure, shock therapy tactics of disaster capitalists. Wake up people!

Donations UK TPA
60% of donations from individuals or groups giving more than £5,000. The Midlands Industrial Council, which has donated £1.5m to the Conservatives since 2003, said it has given around £80,000 on behalf of 32 owners of private companies.
David Alberto of Avanta, has donated a suite in Westminster worth £100,000 a year, because he opposes the level of tax on businesses. 2013-2018, it received at least £223,300 from US-based donors including $100,000 originating from a religious trust incorporated in the Bahamas.
Construction magnate Malcolm McAlpine and a spokesman for JCB tycoon Sir Anthony Bamford, have said they also helped fund the TPA
The TPA does not release details of income or donors, and as such has been rated by the Who Funds You? project as a less transparent organisation CONT
than some other UK think tanks. The group has been accused of hypocrisy and possible illegality after it was revealed that it had been claiming tax relief on donations received from wealthy backers, which were intended for the purposes of political research

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.

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…
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.

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.
