Seen the explosion of energy costs in #GreatBritain, it takes a special kind of complete #audacity to come up with a mini-budget that contains massive #tax cuts for the #rich and corporations.
These #Tories are beyond shameless and yes: they are malicious towards those in need. What a terrible party pushing for these kind of #politics.
#Kwarteng,Kwasi has made himself the face of this shameless greed of the rich to own even more and trample on the poor.
Speaking of a nice coincidence: I have to travel to #FinaleLigure tomorrow Sunday to join a media camp of Bosch eBike Systems.
The official program is just on Monday, and I decided that two 7-hour train rides are a bit much for just one day at the Mediterranean.
So I booked two more nights at a hotel in #Genoa, and guess what? On Tuesday, it's the final day of the Salone Nautico, #Italy's biggest boat show. Sure enough I will check that one out (just the sailing boats)!
Join the session 90mins late, spread cheap propaganda lies for longer than you're supposed to be speaking and leave right after that lengthy, rambling speech: #Russia's foreign minister #Lavrov has shown full contempt not just for #Ukraine, but for the entire #UnitedNations.
Ik zeg het hier graag nog eens: #Baudet,Thierry is knettergek!
Dat bewijst vooral, dat Baudet niet goed in zijn hoofd is en de domste conspiraties versprijdt. Wat een walgelijk figuur, dat vriendje van Trump en Poetin!
If you want to now what low-character bastards rule #China, just check out the latest attempt of the #CCP to paint #foreigners as a danger for the health of the Chinese: Stay away from foreigner to avoid getting infected with monkey pox. Foreigners dangerous, foreigners bad, mkey?
This is vile #xenophobia of the lowest level. The #CCP regime must be brought down. It has too much blood on its hands and fully intends to multiply that. https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/front/archives/2022/09/20/2003785611
People enjoying free internet, freedom of speech and civic rights - and still being in full support of authoritarian rule, willing to paint the aggressive expansionism of #China and #Russia as a striving for a more equal world: I will never understand these #tankies and I refuse to engage in discussions with these enemies of our freedoms.
At their meeting in #Samarkand, #Putin and #XiJinping sketched their vision of a new world order under the Shanghai Cooperation Organization #SCO.
These two autocrats, one guilty of an unprovoked #attack on a neighboring country and the other guilty of cultural #genocide, were fantasizing about more rational and just #internationalrelations and #peace.
At the same time, two SCO members were exchanging fire in a border conflict.
Yo #Russia and #China: Clean up your backyard first!
Keep in mind this not an isolated event as both #Arizona's GOP governor #Ducey,Doug and #Texas's GOP governor #Abbott,Greg have send refugees to #SanctuaryCities such as #Chicago, #WashingtonDC and #NewYork just to score cheap points and to annoy Democratic administrations of those areas.
There's a very special and particularly painful place in hell for bastards who make #refugess suffer just to score a cheap political stunt and to somehow "trigger liberals".
Sending two charter planes with refugees to Martha's Vineyard may well be in conflict with federal laws, and DeSantis may well have put himself in hot water here.
This entire stunt stinks of deepening societal division and scoring cheap points.

Zum Thema unbeabsichtigte Ehrlichkeit: Die Arbeitsgruppe, die in der #Schweiz nach geeigneten Orten für ein #Atommuell-Endlager suchen sollte, schlägt eine Option in Nähe der Landesgrenze zu #Deutschland vor. ALLE Optionen befanden sich in Grenznähe. Wenn so ein #Endlager so sicher und unbedenklich ist, warum wird es dann mitten im Land erstellt, etwa in der Innerschweiz?
Eben: unbeabsichtigte Ehrlichkeit.
#China's #CCP demolishes the convenient lie known as the #1992consensus: According to Beijing, this means that there can only be one China without any interpretation of what that China exactly is.
So this consensus now means #submission for #Taiwan. The #KMT and it's allies from the pan-blue camp should take a pause and think about this: Does it want to assist in this?
Or does it want to join the pan-green camp in resisting this attempt to suffocate #freedom? #FarEast
If the reports about events in the #Kharkiv region are right, there will be plenty of work for #Ukraine's farmed forces to tow out all those deserted or destroyed tanks of #Russia's army from the soggy fields in the East of the country.
Plenty of raw material to restart the steel industry, right?
At this very moment, I would really like to be fly on the wall in #Putin's situation room. Things are looking more than just bad for the invaders in #Ukraine, with a fair chance of large units of #Russia's army getting encircled and becoming prisoners of wa... sorry, a "special operation".
Take thousands of prisoners and exchange them for Ukrainian civilians deported to awful filtration camps in Russia. More importantly: Keep Putin accountable for all these cruelties and war crimes.
Utterly horrific to hear how #Putin's regime chases down young activists in #Russia and has turned #military conscription in to a weapon of internal #repression.
#PutinsWar needs to have serious consequences. Regime change in Moscow is a must for peace to become an option. Keep Vlad the Bloodthirsty, his enablers and his henchmen accountable for the countless crime against humanity inflicted upon #Ukraine and its people.
As for the toilet paper, the logical way to avoid the increasing prices would be to invest in a top-notch Toto toilet from #Japan! Those things are the real deal.
Wie der sanierte #Stauffacherquai zeigt, spielen #Radler und das #Velo noch immer eine sehr untergeordnete Rolle bei der #Verkehrsplanung in #Zuerich. Und das, obwohl diese Stadt laut Wutbürgern von #Fahrrad-Ayatollahs regiert wird, die einzig auf das Schikanieren von Autolenkern abzielen...
11 Meter für Autos, 5 Meter für Fussverkehr, 2.5 Meter für Bäume und 1.25 Meter fürs Velo (und ja: E-Scooter und andere Idiotien) - das zeugt von falschen Prioritäten!
Eating, breathing and thinking bicycles - and yes, riding them and writing about it. Frequent visitor and lover of Taiwan, based in Switzerland.
