PM accused his opponents of ‘Russophobia’ for asking about donations to the Conservative Party from individuals linked to Russia, he might as well caress Putin with a natural yoghourt.…
Johnson was repeatedly hosted by E.Lebedev at his Italian villa. As Byline Times has previously exposed, Italian newspaper reports suggested that Johnson shook off his accompanying police protection officers in order to attend what were described as “X-rated” parties at the villa
Johnson’s new-found commitment to revealing the influence of Russian money in the UK was also missing when he decided to block the publication of a report on Russian interference in the UK.
He refused to publish report by Parliament’s Intelligence Security Committee in the run-up to 2019 GE. The Times quoted sources suggesting that his resistance was due to “embarrassing” links the committee had discovered between Conservative Party donors and the Kremlin. Traitor.
It's very clear that Boris Johnson is a traitor.
Evgeny Lebedev son of former KGB officer Alexander Lebedev. He owns the Evening standard & The Independent and art by Hirst/Emin/Chapmans. In 2020 Johnson nominated him as a life peer under criticism of him being a security risk, the Cabinet Office abruptly changed their position

UK is run by the Vote Leave regime wallowing in an oligarchs paradise, Patel stopping the Russian Golden visa scheme is too little too late. This is a Govt of the super rich, obscene wealth riddled with abuses of power and innate corruption. UK trust on the world stage
drastically diminished, a monetised coup in place, political influence openly commodified by corporations replete with privately sub contracted donations to ensure that disaster capitalists dictate policy.
The 2000's clearly show the massive influx of Russian money into British politics came with Russian values, a Faustian deal whereby the cultural colonization by oligarchy has totally compromised and handcuffed the UK to Putin.

Economic violence inflicted on the UK during times of crisis is a right wing libertarian tactic as old as the hills. In the 80's Charles Koch used his wealth to foment 'division, argue for limited Govt, lower corporate taxes, cripple public spending and…
deregulate environmental protections and workers rights. You see the pattern here? The Tories goal post Brexit is for total reform and 'anarcho-totalitarianism', the reshaping of the entire countries economy and culture. Lawbreaking, relentless corruption and endless lies,
a Govt in permanent campaign mode, forever dangling the 'Global Britain carrot' the 'Brexit Opportunities' the 'We're the best at everything in the world' fueled by the demonising of the other that goes hand in hand with Libertarian zealotry; the evil EU, 'the enemy within'

What do people think will happen when disaster capitalist multinationals set up shop in the UK? They will not employ locally, they'll bring their own people in. UK trade will further collapse. This is known as foreign interference, the exact opposite of 'taking back control.'
Rees-Mogg will ensure that deregulation is set in UK law allowing corporations to avoid having to deal with workers rights, bypassing EU safety standards and protectionism. Think about the effects this will have on surrounding communities and towns, they will rot from the
inside out. Already Tory constituencies have 10 times higher the amount of Govt spending than Labour or Lib Dem ones. This is by design, it is paving the way for Charter cities, freeports, deregulated zones, leading to gated communities formed by a desire for economic apartheid.

The right have always conflated Democratic Socialism with totalitarian Communism, history shows how western countries sought to force disaster capitalism on stable economies going so far as to replace an entire culture with off domiciled corporations. Something parallel to this
has been ushered in with populism and Brexit in the UK. The tactics deployed were well learned tropes of right wing propaganda; division, identifying a common enemy and an overwhelming sense of betrayal and victimhood. The 'promises' emblazoned on the Leave bus, billboard posters
and social media platforms all turned out to be empty mirages and dangled carrots that Leavers and Sun readers are now being asked by Jacob Rees-Mogg to email him about as he's struggling to come up with any tangible benefits himself.

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) since 2018 are are taking dark money from corporations like British American Tobacco and Big Tech along with Arms manufacturers & Healthcare
Weapons makers and private firms donate £13m to get exclusive access to MPs…
businesses. Since 2018 over £25 million in donations from the private sector to APPG's, these are massive conflicts of interest that are the result of post Brexit deregulation and will harm the public sector irreparably. Private donors remain hidden with no accountability
This all amounts to insidious 'back door' lobbying with one Tory MP telling openDemocracy 'I am not releasing anything to you.' In times of crisis disaster capitalists get their foot in the door of democracies and aided by the right wing wreak havoc while cost of living soars.

Labour talks down the prospect of nationalising public services and says it wants to take a more market-based approached.
Whichever way you look at it Jacob and Keir, Brexit is sh*t
Keir Starmer and Jacob Rees-Mogg say Brexit has benefits: what are they?…
An analysis by the University of Sussex Trade Policy Observatory found that the UK's Brexit losses were 178 times bigger than any gains from new agreements, with all deals combined worth less than 50p per person a year.
Very curious to see how this article goes down.
Pretty sure hitching your wagon to Rees-Mogg's star is going to suck you into a black hole.
