I thought there should be a thread on this, hello! I’ve been off urban the last four months working on the repeal campaign, and it’s shaping up to be a dozy. For starts the anti choice brigade hired Kanto, a firm run by Tomas Broderick. Broderick’s mum was Boris’ Deputy manor, and did online strategy for the leave EU campaign, and before that worked for CA, so from the gate this was shaping up to be a nasty campaign Fintan O’Toole: Abortion fake-news firestorm heading our way I’ve helped set up a twitter account called @repeal_shield blocking and monitoring trolls on twitter, since we started we’ve blocked nearly 9,000 pro life trolls, not to mention plenty of Russian sockpupptets and bots, and abortion is a magnet issue for the alt right globally. But the serious issue is dark money advertising and the American religious right, this fascinating thread will give you an insight into how bad it’s gotten. And a brill open democracy piece. The bullshit has spilled into real time with among other things 3 thirteen year girls smeared as Nazis at the international women’s day march And Colette Browne on Twitter So it’s a really interesting situation and also my way of telling you “I ain’t dead”.
