I traced the spread of a lie that Black Lives Matter "stormed" or "forced their way into" Iowa's Capitol last week -- from anonymous tweet to anonymous tweet to Gateway Pundit, Post Millennial, David J. Harris Jr., Ian Miles Cheong, Andy Ngô and others: https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/13/politics/fact-check-iowa-capitol-black-lives-matter-stormed-lie/index.html
Greensill is the privatisation of the NHS writ large: access to data and billing was the big prize and #Greensill met everyone who mattered (Hancock, Harding, Stevens etc). This is why this scandal matters
Breaking free of Brussels bureaucracy was meant to herald a bonfire of red tape. In the first 100 days of Brexit, the only thing many businesses burned was money. https://trib.al/wSEjbNx
Malcolm Turnbull fronted the Senate Media Diversity Inquiry this morning. We may not see eye-to-eye on many things, but watch these remarks on Murdoch's monopoly.
NewsCorp's market power and far-right disinformation is a threat to our democracy #MurdochRoyalCommission
"A Hong Kong newspaper that is critical of Beijing said...its printing presses were ransacked by a gang of men wielding sledgehammers." Video shows four masked men smashing machinery "as a terrified female staff member looked on." https://hongkongfp.com/2021/04/13/video-gang-wielding-sledgehammers-ransack-hong-kong-newspaper-critical-of-china/
@BylineTimes @peterjukes I've just renewed my subscription which had lapsed in January (sorry! am a member now) + bought my Mum a sub too.
Hope this means we are going to make this edition.
In 2022 the GOP may flip the House, Senate or both

It's important to keep investigating: Bannon, Mercers, Parscale, Giuliani, Artemenko/Kuchma, Prince, Rohrabacher, Manafort, Broidy, Kushner, Cambridge Analytica spinoffs etc

BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA: two years (& lots of goalpost shifting) in the making, @EURightsHub have a bit of a monster article now published in the CML Rev on vulnerable EU citizens cast adrift in the UK after Brexit. DM if you'd like an offprint. Key arguments: 1/6
Calme-toi, dearheart Tarquin! The nannies warned you about getting your frilly knickers in a twist. But may I please double check: is it Tory party policy to tell academics to "shut up" when they express "political opinions"? And what would the chaps at the Free Speech Union say?
Shut up just let people enjoy TV without projecting your own opinions onto it.
Not everyone is a politically obsessed neek like yourself. https://twitter.com/mdouganlpool/status/1381343057451302915
Line of Duty's best line yet:
When did we stop caring about honesty and integrity?
That would be Brexit and Boris Johnson....
My quid pro quo with Brexit loons yields fresh fruit. I offer them the chance to practise spelling abusive words; they let me explore the link between Brexitism & other mental debilitations. Time to add new one to familiar list (climate change denial, virus conspiracies etc), ie:
According to BBC North West Tonight, drop in EU-UK trade is due to Covid and EU trade rules. I'll correct that silly error: I'm sure they meant to say "and Johnson's disastrous Hard Brexit".
I wish the Telegraph/Mail/Express would hold back on their evil-EU-proxy-war for just a few days. We get it: you're rabid English nationalists itching for a scrap with some forriners. Yadda-yadda-yadda. Though I suppose they do need something to fill pages with, since it's not...
Brexit? a triumph! Inequalities? personal choices! Science? flourish without funding! Oh such bliss to live in Johnson's Earthly Paradise. Trade rights? for failing businesses. Protest rights? for failing people. Happy, loyal Britons need only faith in Our World Beating Leader...
