Check out article about our dispute at , the hypocrisy of donor Robin Birley who owns the club, and the exploitation of his migrant workers - K porters whom he is happy to exploit while helping to vilify them for Britain’s ills at the same time

This is one of London’s most exclusive private members clubs. Its owner is a hardcore Brexiteer who funds anti-migrant campaigns - while hiring migrants on poverty wages. This is modern Britain

Migrants who are exploited to sustain the luxurious lifestyle of a shameless elite - who then blame migrants for injustices they themselves are responsible for. Don’t turn away: this is Britain in 2019

A liar and a racist who is actively and deliberately inciting murderous rage.

This, from 's head of comms, needs to be read and processed on both sides of the Atlantic. Fascism does not fall from a clear blue sky. The political conditions for it have to be created. And some of those expressing horror now are among those who are guilty of that.

I genuinely can’t believe we are still even having an argument about prorugation and that an incoming prime minister won’t rule out the literal *suspension* of parliament. In any other country we’d call it a banana republic. How far British democracy has fallen.

Worried for Omar. This man is putting her life in danger. I dunno what else to say that isn't obvious.

This is honestly the most pathetic thing I’ve ever heard in my life. Mind-bogglingly spineless and cowardly.

“many of the Lords associated with the Guardian advert represent the very worst elements of the Blair era. They are cronies who enabled a racist agenda on immigration; bag-carriers who misled a nation into an illegal war” - this is undeniably true

This is a modern day Klan rally. Those MAGA hats are the new Klan hoods. They aren't hiding it -because they don't have to -the President of the United States is an open, flagrant racist and bigot. And he is endangering not just Ilhan Omar, but immigrants & all people of color

It's genuinely very surreal reading things about you in the media which never happened. I'm trying to imagine saying "Mine's a G&T" without instantly vomiting and it's a real challenge

And just look at this. Boris Johnson - a man backed by the ascendant hard right - is about to form the most extreme Tory government of our time. And it is being alleged that anti-Corbyn Labour MPs would prefer Boris Johnson as PM to a Labour Government.

If you help to mainstream the idea that the left are agents or dupes of foreign powers, terrorist sympathisers, haters of their own country and are completely infested with antisemitism, then you're going to have to do so knowing the far right will gladly take these attacks up.
