Investigative journalism is difficult, expensive, exposing, legally risky.

And zero point in doing it if nothing *actually* changes

A short thread to explain what @allthecitizens is trying to do.

1) Use James Bond to make people pay attention

2) Provide a platform & resource for solid evidence-based journalism.

This was honestly an amazing panel on a hugely important subject at a critical moment:
@CatherineBelton @anneapplebaum @Billbrowder @ProfessorShaw @lukeharding1968 

3) Find more creative ways of getting the story out. Not everyone reads @guardian. And v few people really understand how implicated Boris Johnson is in the #RussianReport

Huge kudos to @lisemayer & @rorybremner for this.

4) Take action. Bring the change. Watch this space. @allthecitizens
