Here’s a weird one: Is Boris Johnson conducting a social media charm campaign?

I’ve received a curious message. See what you make of it: My wife has a YouTube page that she hosts a chat group on every so often. now this is not a big page and she has less than a 1000 subscribers. last night whilst doing her live chat a person came into her chat and asked, “what did people think of Boris Johnson”. I thought this was a very unusual question to ask, because her chat groups are not about politics. To cut a long story short, three different…

Streeting becomes third Labour anti-Semitism witch-hunter to be accused of anti-Semitism

Labour MP Wes Streeting, who has been vocal in his attacks on fellow party members accused of anti-Semitism, has become the third high-profile witch-hunter to receive the same treatment. He joins Tom Watson and Margaret Hodge in having an anti-Semitism complaint aimed at him. Here’s Skwawkbox to explain: The Orthodox Jewish member, who asked not to be named, has made the complaint with regard to tweets and retweets by Streeting labelling Charedi Jewish member Shraga Stern as ‘homophobic’ and ‘anti-LGBT’ for his campaign to maintain sex education as a matter for…

Tory/Lib Dem protest voters: Think again – Brecon and Radnorshire is NOT a ‘Brexit by-election’

Labour’s candidate in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election has appealed for voters to remember that there is much more to the August 1 by-election than Brexit. “There are far greater issues than just Brexit,” said Tom Davies, whose campaign has been said to be lagging behind those of vapid Liberal Democrat leaflet-spammer Jane Dodds (Remain) and convicted criminal Chris Davies (Leave) – both of whom have little to recommend them other than the chance to record a pointless protest vote about the decision to leave the European Union. “We’re looking…

BoJob booed again as the new PM fails in Wales

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is booed by protestors as he arrives in Cardiff Bay to meet with the First Minister Mark Drakeford — ITV Wales News (@ITVWales) July 30, 2019 Farmers at last weeks Royal Welsh Show demanded answers from new prime minister Boris Johnson about the effect of a “no deal” Brexit which they fear will harm exports and bring a fall in animal welfare and environmental standards – along with a massive cut in funding. If they expected answers when he visited Wales yesterday, they were…

By-election candidate supports tax avoidance for the rich – but hammered the vulnerable with the bedroom tax

If you were reading This Site yesterday (July 30), you’ll be aware that a friend on Facebook has been looking at the Parliamentary voting record of Chris Davies, the former MP and current Conservative candidate in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election – and it makes grim reading. The same friend has now finished researching Mr Davies’s record on taxation and the results speak for themselves. Amongst other decisions… • Davies voted against a series of proposals intended to reduce tax avoidance and evasion. • Davies voted against an investigation into…

Nearly a quarter of the UK population has been pushed into poverty – but Tories don’t care about the poor

Around 14.3 million people in the UK are now living in poverty, with seven million suffering “persistent” poverty and 4.5 million at least 50 per cent below the poverty line. The revelation, in a report by the Social Metrics Commission, comes after it was revealed that Boris Johnson’s senior advisor believes Conservatives don’t care about the poor. Dominic Cummings, who was also a chief architect of Brexit, said at the Conservative Party Conference in 2017: “People think, and by the way I think most people are right: ‘The Tory party is…

Johnson stumbles again as child poverty cash handed back to Europe unspent

It’s not a good beginning for Boris Johnson, is it? His Home Secretary is a security risk, dedicated to bringing back the death penalty – and may have breached the ministerial code for a second time, despite having been forced out of the cabinet for her first transgression. His police recruitment drive won’t restore the 20,000 officers lost since 2010 but will only keep numbers at a standstill. He made a hypocrite of himself by saying he won’t call a snap election. Despite this claim, the other political parties have…

Fake-personalised ‘letter’ is Jane Dodds latest electioneering trick

Mrs Mike would like to put Jane Dodds on notice that if another piece of electioneering drivel comes through our letterbox, she’ll happily shove it as far down the Liberal Democrat’s throat as she can reach. “I’m just sick and tired of it,” she’s telling me right now. “It’s constant. Why waste so much money on this when it doesn’t say anything [I’m paraphrasing here; the actual language was much less diplomatic] about helping people who need it – the sick, the disabled, people who’ve had everything taken from them…

If you need reasons NOT to vote Conservative, look at convict Chris Davies’s voting record

A fellow Brecon and Radnorshire constituent contacted me on Twitter to say that he would be voting for Chris Davies in the by-election on Thursday. Mr Davies is the Conservative candidate who was recently convicted of faking expenses claims. There was a petition of recall which was signed by twice the number of people needed, and a by-election was called. Mr Davies caused this election by his own criminality. But my correspondent said he will vote for the criminal anyway, because Mr Davies persuaded Powys Health Board to carry out…

Panorama hatchet-job part five: It’s not WHAT you know – it’s WHO

[Note: This article is much-delayed – events between the last instalment of my feature on the BBC’s Panorama: Is Labour Antisemitic? meant that I could not finish it until now. I wanted to run my analysis right through to the end as the next step is to compose a complaint – or a series of them – to the BBC. Current events have now made that timely, as you’ll see at the end of the piece.] The next part of Panorama: Is Labour Antisemitic? started by saying the Chakrabarti Report had…
