    AJ, I remember.

    ‘Allied’ forces, Australia have investigated this…it was touched on very briefly in the show? Not sure the outcome.
    From the BBC news website…above

    …had been killed, including a 12 and 14 year old boy, with clusters of bullet holes left close to the floor.

    This came up on the BBC news, yesterday. British SAS* ‘death squads’ murdered unarmed civilians in night raids, in 2011.

    *Australia military confirmed its forces also murdered unarmed civilians in ‘death raids’ at night.
    Not seen any coverage in the tabloids?

    AJ

    Did read that Ukrainians are white (fairly obvious) and christian…

    The Government can find £4bn* in ‘aid’ to Ukraine.
    The US I can’t remember how many
    $billions

    *There’s no Tory money tree. This ‘aid’ is on condition Ukraine buys British arms.

    Bit off topic..

    Putin owns a £1bn* palace!

    This on top of the usual £500m mega yacht(s?)

    Putin must work hard.

    This, not the article I read….close

    Putin’s £1bn palace built with illicit funds, says Navalny from prison cell

    As above. Russia, or rather Putin, wants to cause global starvation*.

    So according to those who say Capitalism has bought billions of people out of poverty (ignoring all the evidence to the contrary) do they suggest we wait for this to happen…?

    Begging the question in the first place that this is even remotely possible*?

    1.4bn face food insecurity… the market dictates no profit no production.

    *She said the hunger crisis was building “like a life-threatening wave before us” but it was Russia’s war that had “made a tsunami out of this wave”, and she said Russia was using hunger as a weapon of war.

    World War III

    London will be bombed first in World War Three, Putin ally claims
    A close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that London will be the first city to be bombed in the event of another world war.

    “The first to be hit will be London.
    “It’s crystal clear that the threat to the world comes from the Anglo-Saxons.”

    This is all the fault of the government….greedy Capitalists.

    Government subsidises Rail to the tune of £4bn, ending up largely in shareholders pockets.

    From inews

    No 10 planning to tear up restrictions on City bosses’ pay amid cost of living crisis

    One key plank of the plan included “removing restrictions on director (and specifically NED [non-executive director]) remuneration as suggested by the London Stock Exchange Group to improve London’s attractiveness for listings”.
    But with the cost of living crisis and a squeeze on earnings hitting millions of ordinary workers, the proposal may spark controversy.

    Outrage over banker’s pay

    Bonuses in the financial and insurance sector grew by 27.9 per cent over the last year, while average wages in the same period grew by just 4.2 per cent. Some £6bn was paid out in City bonuses in March alone.

    While CEOs receive staggering pay and bonuses increases! All perfectly justified..

    The Government attacks ordinary workers daring to seek a decent pay rise at all!! …in effect accusing them of causing inflation!

    I posted this on RMT Twitter account page…and The Times*

    When there was no such thing as inflation, at the turn of the 20th Century. Wages were a pittance, children, forced into indentures worked a 16 hour day, 6 day week. Sundays were for God. You preyed for a better life after death!
    The Tories, its then predecessor, were not the Party of the workers!

    * A good response this being 1…

    Well yes! People seem to forget this nugget of information because most people never pick up a history book!

    Update on my little spat….

    I receive emails when I get replies…
    I did a search, and found in 1996? (approx ) before Russia invaded. There was a Ukrainian demonstration, (the Crimea ?)in which police officers were injured!
    I know you could report material promoting terrorism or extremism?
    Since I reported this coward*, she has stopped posting after I reported her online to authorities and complained about her to the mods..
    *Urging fellow workers to fight and die..
    Iv seen 2 British men have been arrested by Russians..(both said to have Ukrainian partners* (*this unconfirmed officially to be the case?)
    The irony is, I never actually bought the Socialist Worker. I bulked at the price and length of the articles in their magazine NS…
    The rest is history

    Anti Putin protests held in London, where 10s of thousands protested.

    Read the headline…

    Clearly Pitri Patel, wouldn’t be calling for these protesters to be arrested on the grounds of being noisy and an inconvenience to people! Police taking full force, acting to the letter the new laws..on protests…arresting people! BLM, Bristol and Clapham spring to mind

    I quipped, with my online post that the demonstrators would cause inconvenience and would be very noisy..

    only to be told too bad…

    that I supported Putin in her next stupid post. Accused me of being a supporter of the SWP, their rag , which was 40 years out of date?
    Then to be told I am an incel? When I replied that should she drop dead.

    Because of this clown, I will not give a damn about how many Ukrainians die….to be honest the more the merrier. I crushed a grape this morning.

    She said Ukrainians were being displaced….
    What about the 8 million Yemenis displaced… ?
    If this idiot doesn’t get off her armchair and fight… she a hypocrite.
    *10s of thousands? LOL

    Oh yeah. Deport them if they try to come to the UK. NO to Ukrainian immigrants! Let them apply for citizenship in the first country they land in. Fuck off

    Ukraines president Zelenskyy who came to power claiming to clean up corruption…has a billion in foreign accounts

    Unbelievable if true
    Original source The Times (someone posted it in a comments section, needless to say no actual evidence to backup this by the poster )so I did some searching and found this.

    The Rada spoke about a billion dollars in Zelensky’s foreign accounts
