Boris is the most gifted politician of his generation and less than three years ago won an 80-seat majority. Why didn't Hal become Henry V?

In crisis, we chose to invert our public health paradigm by requiring the young to sacrifice their own health and wellbeing to safeguard that of adults. In doing so, we shattered our implicit social contract.

The new Bill of Rights is a disappointment. It won't rein in the judges, just empower British ones at the expense of European ones. It does little about the undermining of parliamentary sovereignty by the lawyerly caste.

By the end of last year, Lithuania's elderly vaccination rate was 37 percentage points higher than Romania's. Yet since the start of the vaccine rollout, the two countries have had similar levels of excess mortality.

As of the most recent week, there have been 7,840 more deaths than usual from causes other than Covid since April, 1,374 of them in just the latest week. What is going on, and is anyone looking into it?

Shell To Sea Solidarity Action Ghent ( Belgium).

6th of January

On the 6th of January we held a blockkade of a Shell gasstation in the city of Ghent (Belguim)
We did this blockkade out of solidarity with the people who are resisting Shell in Rossport, Ireland. We also wanted to commemorate the 9 Ogoni activists who were murderd by Shell in the Nigerdelta.

During the action we were able to turn away most of the cars after we had a conversation with the drivers. We also handed out informative flyers to people passing by and showed our banners which said "SHELL OUT OF IRELAND" and "SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE IN ROSSPORT AND THE NIGER DELTA"

After about one hour the police arrived and broke up the blockkade and checked everybody's id cards.

Greetings from Ghent to the people in Rossport and the Niger delta

Let the fight go on !!!
Shell to Sea !!!
Solidarity without borders !!!!

Nice to see awareness of shell's underhand corporate behaviour spreading and principled people taking a stand. Happy to see that these corporate slime aren't getting everything their own way. Interesting to see that they are still trading as shell in Belgium. They had to change their name to Topaz in Ireland to avoid the bad publicity here.

Thanks a million to all involved in Ghent action - it always means a lot to those beleagured by corporate arrogance and weak governance.

Thanks again and be assured that we'll keep the fight going here for as long as it takes.

Thank you all who stood against Shell with this protest, we here in Ireland have been protesting for many years and it's really great that others around the World stand up against Shells world pollution. Human beings have the right to live in an Environment that is free from toxic pollution that Shell thinks it's alright to discharge into our air and water; Thank You again from the People of Erris Ireland,,
