Hello Scottish people who follow me 👋

I've never been to Aberdeen, but my friend (who lives in Glasgow) was racially abused there last night 🤬
so I would like to know if this is standard random everywhere ignorant racism,

or something that is commonplace for Aberdeen?

TIA🙏 sadly can get odd ignorant racists everywhere,
but sometimes they cluster eg Luton
where white folk are submissive to Inherited Privilege

so non-white & non-English-mothertongue speakers are below them in the hierarchy, as innately less worthy than even the lowest white person ImageImage

this was Brexit Alex Phillips' gang, @campbellclaret was right to cast this up on her given she's a Faragist
even if she's right to say she wasn't in with Johnson's Vote Leave £350M for the NHS lot

pack of lies

#Newsnight Alex Phillips was a Brexit Party MEP for half a year in 2019 but before that she worked for disgraced data mining and campaigns consultancy Cambridge Analytica during a controversial Kenyan presidential election (in 2017)

I see Piers Morgan is going for the "I was an incompetent editor who didn't know what was happening" defence at the Daily Mirror over the turn of the century,

rather than admitting complicity with his journalists hacking phones & harassing Prince Harry well, I mean, I see from the news & the BBC interview that he's trying to shirk responsibility for the tabloid attack on Harry on his watch

Can't see his reaction on Twitter as like so many people I'm blocked by Piers Morgan for calling him out

Feeling quite sorry for the Kenyan guy who didn't get the joke and is now catching a lot of occasionally quite nasty corrective flak which is swamping my mentions. People do love to correct others, and nobody just likes what's already been said about it

Lots of women have had helpful abortions that changed their lives for the better by giving them control
#HerBodyHerChoice

I have had:
1 miscarriage after not knowing I was pregnant,
1 contraceptive failure termination in a bad time & place,
+ 1 full term pregnancy Due to my mental health instability until midlife, I would not have been a good parent to either of the first potential people I made, but by the last one, I was so ready & we're doing well.

Obviously as ~1/5 of conceptions end in miscarriage naturally there may have been others
