#Ukraine, he said, had run out of its own weapons.

"If America wants us to win, then it must supply weapons,” Sentsov said.

“Without weapons, we cannot win. We will not lose, but we will not win either.”

Nangeli - Wikipedia

"Mulakkaram" was a term to distinguish female taxpayers from males, and "the #tax was not based on the size of the #breast or its attractiveness, as Nangeli's storytellers will claim, but was one standard rate charged from women". Covering breasts was not a fashion in #Kerala at that time. Victorian standards of morality penetrated into the society decades later via the #British colonialists, which led to subsequent class-struggles for the right of the lower caste to wear upper cloth.[",upper%20cloth.%5B

Just saw Scrapper. Gentle little film about Georgie, 12, who’s surviving on her own after her mum’s death. Her dad Jason (30ish going on 13) shows up after being absent all her life. I love how they’re both kids really, but J is trying to step up. Low key & enjoyably weird with magic realism moments (talking spiders- *shudder*) Hints at but avoids gritty realism in favour of showing two lost “kids” learning how to connect. #Scrapper #movie #film #British @timrichards

Along with #Freedland & #Toynbee (among others), with full-throated encouragement from @guardian Editor-in-Chief Kath #Viner, Rafael #Behr essentially led the #Guardian’s five-year-long assault on #Corbyn & his leadership team - thereby legitimising the #ZionistLobby’s #ItWasAScam #FakeAntiSemitism slur and giving the #FarRight press & #BBC state media “permission” to jump on the “destroy Corbyn” bandwagon!

Whilst they won’t admit it, #Behr et al & the Guardian fundamentally betrayed what remains of #British democracy & probably destroyed any future possibility of a #DemocraticSocialist government in Britain!

Having helped return both #May’s & #Johnson’s #Tories to power in 2017 & 2019, Behr is today ⤵️ rightly savaging the #Tories & #Sunak for having “no new ideas and nothing to say about the problems facing Britain, most of which are the product of choices made by the party he leads. This is the point of no return, when Conservatives realise that renewal in office is not possible, and that they need to be in opposition almost as much as the country wants them out of government.”

Problem is: after three-years of giving @UKLabour “leader” Sir #KidStarver & his Shadow Cabinet of #Blairite nondescripts & no-hopers a “free pass”, the Guardian is also belatedly waking up to the fact that the #Mandelson-influenced ‘heart’ of #Labour thinking is suffused with such vapidity as to make it utterly clueless in the face of the crises we all now face!

The country is at an historical crossroads heading into the 2024 general election yet, all the evidence available strongly suggests that neither the party currently in government nor the opposition (& potentially the next party in government) have got the “nous” or the “balls” to do what they both know *must* be done for the sake of the country and the future of the planet!

“The Tory mission has failed: British people don’t want a smaller state”
