PayPal says its mission is to "ensure everyone can take control of their financial lives” and that it believes access to financial services should be a "right for all”. So why does it keep banning people it doesn't lik dailysceptic.org/2022/09/25/…

One of the many charges levelled at Brazil's President Bolsonaro is that his sceptical handling of the pandemic was "disastrous". A comparison with other countries, however, quickly shows that to be nonsense. dailysceptic.org/2022/09/25/…

21 Tory MPs & 15 Tory peers, in addition to 4 cross-bench peers, a Labour peer & a Labour MP, sent a letter to PayPal last night demanding an explanation as to why they are banning people's accounts for holding certain political views. Hopefully this represents a turning point.

“UsForThem did sterling service during the months of lockdown & damaging school closures, as a rare voice speaking up for the nation’s children. It is chilling to see faceless corporations like @PayPalUK trying to stop this vital work” -Sir Graham Brady MP express.co.uk/news/politics/…

"Don't you find it slightly depressing? The idea that free speech, a fundamental cornerstone value of our society, is now mistrusted?" Progressive people have suddenly become 'bigots,' broadcaster Andrew Doyle (@andrewdoyle_com) tells Hugo Rifkind on #TimesRadio.

Omicron has no known evolutionary connection with the original SARS-CoV-2 virus and is milder than flu. Isn't it time to accept that it is a different virus and turn the page on the 'COVID-19 pandemic'. dailysceptic.org/2022/09/25/…

Southgate supporters defending their man by saying he’s not got the players. Apart from talents like Kane, Sterling, Foden, Rice, Bellingham, James, Saka, Grealish and those he ignored in Milan like Alexander-Arnold. Probably £1bn worth of talent. Enough talent to build a team.
