Why is ROBERT #PESTON announcing the new #BorisJohnson #lockdown2 restrictions?

 Robert Peston: how come he’s announcing new government Covid-19 restrictions in advance?

I thought Peston’s erstwhile sidekick Allegra Stratton was the one who quit to become the Tory government’s full-time spokes-goon.

What’s Peston himself doing, announcing new policies before Boris Johnson?

And didn’t Johnson fall foul of the relevant authorities for announcing policies via his media stooges before giving Parliament a chance to look at them?

Yes he did.

Some people never learn – or perhaps Johnson’s just thumbing his nose at everybody else and Peston is simply the empty vessel he’s using to do it.

Here’s what the ITV political editor has claimed will be announced at 5pm today (October 31). Let’s compare it with what Johnson says:

Schools and universities to remain open?

This won’t make much of a dent in the spread of the virus, then.

    My reckoning is that Peston was fed these details by ‘Grima’ Cummings (Tolkien fans will recognize why I have dubbed him thus).

    Scruff Peston is just another Con storm trooper still looking for a mention on the New Years Honours list. He knows all because he is part of the Globalist Propaganda squad having given up all rights to be called a real independent journalist. Hopefully the legal prosecution of all those MPs in Parliament that voted for this coup will happen before their deadline. It will not stop them doing their masters bidding it is not just the UK it is nearly every world wide democracy being taken out.
