Nasty lot.

At least 14 Conservative MPs, including several ministers, cabinet minister Michael Gove and a number of prominent Tory commentators joined Parler, the social media platform favoured by the far right that was forced offline last week for hosting threats of violence and racist slurs.

Foreign Office minister James Cleverly along with Brexiter Steve Baker MP and Ben Bradley MP, who was recently accused of linking free school meals with “crack dens”, joined Parler.

Mark Jenkinson, who last year alleged that food parcels were sold or traded for drugs in his Cumbrian constituency without offering any proof, trade minister Ranil Jayawardena and Lewes MP Maria Caulfield.

Both Caulfield and Dorries had weeks earlier been reprimanded by Downing Street for sharing a video from a far-right Twitter account that falsely claimed Keir Starmer blocked the prosecution of grooming gang members when he led the Crown Prosecution Service.

The most prolific Tory MP on the site was Bradley who sent 52 “parleys” and had more than 12,000 followers. Gove sent at least 26 parleys and had more than 5,000 followers.

Twitter is a moderated (supposedly) mainstream platform. Parler is an extremist platform and we have actual sitting Government ministers using it!

Its shocking alright but not surprising.

Twitter boot any extremists off if they don't follow their t&c's hence the reason they kicked Trump off. Others have had the boot from Twitter such as Hatey Hopkins and Yaxley-Lennon. People like that migrate to Parler as it attracts the far right so the Tory lot will feel right at home among like minded nasties.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao, who has a fake image of an Australian soldier holding a bloody knife to a child's throat pinned to the top of his Twitter account, said anyone who gets in the way of China's affairs would suffer.

Isthis still ok?

Not really......he only began breaking their t&c's after the election making spurious unfounded claims of voter fraud. His tweets were flagged each time and he was given chance to withdraw them but he didn't so they rightly kicked him off.
