Ahem! I think you'll find @sciencemuseum has the best duck: this is one of nearly 30k plastic ducks swept overboard in North Pacific in 1992 +washed up in Sitka, Alaska.

ไม่มีอะไรชัวร์จนกว่ากฤษฎีกาจะออกแล้ว กกต. ประกาศทับอีกที
ถึงอย่างนั้น พอเลือกตั้งแล้วประกาศผล แล้วมีมือดีไปร้องศาล รธน. บอกกระบวนการเกิน 150 วัน ศาลประกาศการเลือกตั้งเป็นโมฆะ ทำให้ต้องมาเลือกตั้งกันใหม่ถ้าไม่โดนรัฐประหารไปซะก่อนhttps://t.co/QRVvZDbuzm

“Les detencions d’aquest dimecres semblen més pròpies de forces paramilitars descontrolades que d’una policia democràtica homologable i han tingut lloc amb el PSOE al govern del Regne d’Espanya”. Davant del judici 1-O, l’estat ensenya les seves cartes.https://t.co/7O3IOdB7YI

If anyone needs a reminder of why the British establishment isn't terribly interested in Russian political warfare, let's look at the UK friends of Oleg Deripaska. (And note James Harding's role (he then became director of BBC news...) https://t.co/bILi19wufW

"No és un judici. És un linxament polític organitzat, des de totes les instàncies de l’estat espanyol, que té com a únic objectiu la persecució i dissolució dels oponents polítics”. És el ‘Deep State’ espanyol contra la democràcia.#nocallarem
