On my "Endgame" thesis.
It may be that the useful contacts at places like the BBC have served their purpose, and it's time for the big payoff.

Fox majority stake in Sky waved through.
BT Openreach broken up and divvied out to "competitors" - one in particular.
Leveson II kicked into the long grass.
Further cutbacks to the BBC.
Questions in parliament regarding the viability of the license fee, and whether we require a public broadcaster (Dead hand stifling broadcasting competition...).

I've had the radio on today and Radio 5 live has been out and about the country doing Vox-pops and interviewing various politicians.

EVERY Labour person, politician or supportive passer-by, has been challenged by "But do you think Corbyn is up to the challenge?"
No such quiz for Tories, Libs or Kippers.

And in relation to Farron and Nuttall it would be a suitable question.

Laura Kuenssberg up to her usual Corbyn bashing
Noone seems to know precisely what is going on but one source suggests to me Coyne was ahead in early counting - not being confirmed
another tweet 25 minutes later.
On Coyne, another source says counting hasn't even started yet! Result now expected tomorrow

Yeah if anything there bashing McCluskey for suspending his opponent just when counting begins and strong suggestions that Coyne is ahead, but hey let's get angry at Laura Kuenssberg.

Twitter erupts as BBC struggle to keep Tory Election Fraud under wraps until after May elections

...and if anybody's left in any doubt about this country teetering on the brink of facism, take a look at look at last night's edition of 'This Week' featuring an intro that might as well have been a party political broadcast , Neil and Portillo's sickening, bullying browbeating of the FT guy for daring to report the other side's point of view, and the arrogant dismisal of Lisa Nandy's valid obsevation that this entire clusterfuck can be traced back to Plastic Dave's inept decision as 'water under the bridge'

Why do some Corbynites put their Twitter names in double brackets?

As you were, I looked it up.

Apparently the fash have been putting double brackets round the Twitter names of Jewish Tweeters. Other fash can find this and tart with the abuse. The antifash are putting three brackets round their names to show solidarity and support for the vctims. Not sure how that helps when a shit-tonne of antisemitic abuse comes down the pipe, but it's a thought.

There was a twitter add-on which allowed nazis to search for the triple brackets, so they could find people who had already been tagged as jews by other nazis. The idea behind others doing it to themselves was to make it less useful as a way of identifying targets.
