So now the Tories have attacked & blamed the clergy, the judiciary, teachers, the left, the elite, immigrants, "human rights" & all our direct neighbours. And the UK media still are scared to call it what it is.

You know who else attacked all of the above?
This is the latest Tory delight, for those who missed it.

The result of our media sticking their heads a. up Johnson's arse or b. in the sand, is people now publicly calling for those not embracing their idea of Sunlit Uplands to be sent to Rwanda.

And despite all that is happening right now, someone at the BBC thought it was a good idea to have this creature on #BBCNewsnight (spoiler: we are overrun by scary immigrants and it's all France's fault!). Fast forward 22 minutes 30 sec o Kevin Saunders.…

Gooooood morning Brexit Britain! Better fill up on that super nutritious sovereignty!

"Britain’s food and consumer goods industry uniquely exposed to current pressures due to a reliance on food imports and the impacts of EU exit."
"The report says the new regime has added to costs through additional administration at the EU border and other legislation changes – as well as labour shortages prompting higher wages for farmers and food producers."

Hurrah for Brexit. Hurrah! Hurrah!

But don't worry! Boris Johnson has everything under control and has got an oven-ready food strategy for us all:

Eat less!

@AlStewartOBE @MichaelPiliOCod Dear god. Where to begin. The ECHR isn't a military organisation. It is a court that judges if members of the European Council who signed and ratified the European Convention of Human Rights are not violating it.

And guess what, Einstein.
@AlStewartOBE @MichaelPiliOCod Bosnia (and the other parties at war there) were not members of the European Council and had not signed up and ratified the European Convention on Human Rights at the time. So what you expect the ECHR could have done then, is not clear to me.
@AlStewartOBE @MichaelPiliOCod Re Ukraine. The aggressor, Russia, hasn't ratified the European Convention on Human Rights. So again, what do you think the ECHR can do against someone who didn't sign up for the deal? But, I do think the ECHR is helping Ukrainian refugees quite a bit, don't you think?

I have so had it with the hypocrisy of the English (media). Today @BBCNewsnight was the final straw.

Tell me @KirstyWark, how is it possible that Macron, who got 58.5% of the vote, does not have a enthusiastic endorsement for him or his programme?

For 6 years we have been told that 52% of the vote was a great endorsement to take the whole country out of the EU. And even worse, Johnson only getting 43.6% apparently got an enormous mandate from the people to make Brexit as hard as possible and fuck half the population.

And you started by saying the far right did better than ever before in France. Could you please compare the manifesto from Le Pen with the Tory manifesto, and explain to me the differences between them? I mostly see similarities between Le Pen and the Tories.

Just in case you aren't totally revolted by this government yet, read this. This is beyond sick, this is evil.

Some bits from the article:
"The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he had dealt with numerous cases where UK visas had been issued for an entire Ukrainian family apart from one child, which in effect stopped the family travelling to the UK."

“This allows the government to say we’ve issued lots of visas. Yet, because they have withheld one, it’s a guarantee those Ukrainians won’t travel,” said the source."

@emilyhewertson Ah, a challenge. Good, I do like a challenge in the morning Emily.

So, what benefits has the EU brought it member states in the last 2 years, compared to the UK?

Plain and simple, stability & protection from falling standards.

@emilyhewertson Let's start with this article about a report from the British Chambers of Commerce. It gives a very good idea of the benefits the EU has brought its members in the last 2 years if you compare it with us.

@emilyhewertson Business investment isn't hit as much in the EU as it has been in the UK. From the article:

So, we are now 2 years out of the EU, and 1 year into Boris Johnson's fantastic cakist treaty no-one thought was possible (his own words).

So, how are we doing? This might come as a shock to some, but really not very well.

Let's start with something really weird. Apparently our economy is going to surpass its pre-pandemic level over the next few months AGAIN. As we apparently already did so before in November last year.

Yikes: "Unlike in the US and most other European economies, Rishi Sunak’s attempts to boost investment using tax breaks and subsidies have failed. Last year business investment declined despite the offer of a 130% tax break on spending on new plant, machinery and technology."
