We didn’t vote Leave in the ref Only 37% of a gerrymandered electorate did. That’s not enough to impose huge constitutional change and removal of rights from the whole population You need 40% just to go on strike Cameron prevented having a supermajority in WM. ‘Only advisory ‘

The Pointless Keir Starmer - On Thursday, Labour under Keir Starmer got a lower percentage of the vote in Wakefield than they did in 2017 under Jeremy Corbyn. In 2017 Labour got 49.7%. On Thursday they got 47.9%. I want you to think that craigmurray.org.uk/archives/…

David Lammy is an establishment careerist who has no politics beyond power. If you're on the side of working people, the Labour Party is your enemy. Labour is more important to upholding the UK oligarchy than the Tories because it gives people the illusion of an alternative.

David Lammy says “a serious party of government does not join picket lines” So what was he doing on the @ucu picket lines in 2018?
Proud to join @ucu members on the picket line at the College of North East London in solidarity with their strike this morning. College staff have had pay cuts of 26% on top of these pensions cuts. A lot of the media attention has been on HE - let's not forget FE colleges!

Bare faced mendacity from the Labour party is well & truly back. Starmer, Lammy and Thornberry appear to think that parties of government don't do protest. Here's a few pictures of them in 2019, *leading protests*. People are tired of constant shape-shifting & lies in politics.

I'm living in a country that allowed our politicians to steal almost $60 billion from us, and give most of it to their weapons manufacturer donors to give missiles to an Army partially consisting of Nazis in one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

David Lammy has chosen to launch a direct attack on British Airways workers. This is a group of workers who were savagely attacked by their employer during Covid. ‘Fire and rehire’ led to thousands of unnecessary job cuts and pay being slashed. 1/3

Never forget. This is how the Guardian reported on Jeremy Corbyn in the weeks & months before the 2017 General Election. Jeremy went on to add 2.5 million votes to the Labour tally.

Corbyn: “I have absolutely no illusions in the Guardian, none whatsoever. My mum brought me up to read the Guardian. She said, ‘It’s a good paper you can trust’. You can’t. After their treatment of me, I do not trust the Guardian.” declassifieduk.org/exclusive…

This morning I joined the @RMTunion picket at Newcastle Central Station to stand in solidarity with striking railway workers defending their jobs, pay and conditions. Victory for those taking action this week will be a victory for all working people.

⚡️📣I Am Alive ⚡️📣 It has come to my attention that there are posts going around pro Ukrainian social media that I have been "killed or seriously wounded". These are fake news. I am fine. Me and the team are in Kharkov Region hard at work.

France and Germany pressured African Union leaders for months to join a brief Zoom call with Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky. 51 of 55 African heads of state (93%) boycotted the meeting, showing clear neutrality over the Western proxy war with Russia. multipolarista.com/2022/06/2…

Happy to confirm that, contrary to the impression that might be gleaned from our Attorney General’s considered views, it is not yet a criminal or electoral offence to vote for a party that is not the government.
Suella Braverman(Attorney General) - "It's disappointing to see that there's actually a dishonest electoral pact between the LibDems & Labour, & that's more worrying"

The U.S. Supreme Court made it easier to own a gun, gave cops the ability to not read Miranda Rights, gave religious schools public funding, and overturned Roe v Wade after 50 years of precedence. Welcome to conservative America. Never vote Republican again.
