The minister responsible for cutting Universal Credit by £20 per week, just when its claimants will really need it, has spoken out to say how proud she is to have the notorious liar Boris Johnson as her prime minister.
Therese Coffey could not deny the allegations against Johnson when they were put to her by Sky News host Kay Burley. She simply refused to admit them either.
And she also made a mean-spirited attack on Peter Stefanovic, whose video compilation of Johnson’s lies to Parliament (fact-checked and approved by Full Fact, let’s not forget) is now heading for the 30 million views milestone. She said “this is done to drive small clips on social media”.
It’s done to put the facts in front of the electorate, Therese!
She’ll undoubtedly be delighted to see that she is now the subject of such a clip. Here it is:
I would like to thank Therese Coffey for publicly stating she is very proud of my pathological lying. It means a lot. pic.twitter.com/ELH41JH0WO

And it’s by Peter Stefanovic! (Nice one, Peter!)
Sadly, Coffey can say this because she believes her government is impervious to criticism.
As I type this, Mrs Mike is raging bitterly that Coffey, Johnson and the Tories should not be able to get away with these lies because there are rules about it.
But we know by Dawn Butler’s ejection from Parliament that the rules have been perverted to support the liars. Don’t we?
Is this really the kind of government you want?
Do you really want to be told what to do – and if you think you aren’t, look at Michael Gove’s demand that unvaccinated people get the Covid-19 jab or else – by people who do what they like, lie about it, and shrug it off when they’re found out?
I don’t. I really don’t.
And I get angry when – because of the so-called “democracy” we have in the UK – I get dragged into suffering it because 13 million tribal dimwits (they’re Tories) vote the way a Tory liar tells them to.
I know it’s the summer and they’re all on their break, but that doesn’t mean we have to let them off the hook.
It’s the perfect time to educate everybody we know. Show them the video clips. Explain to them that they have been deceived. Tell them that the Tories used Covid-19 as an excuse to give public money – their money – equivalent to half the world’s GDP to Tory cronies in return for nothing while more than 150,000 people died because of government incompetence.
And if our friends, neighbours and work colleagues try to justify it, just tell them there is no justification.
Oh, you don’t want to? You feel uncomfortable because it might create an awkward situation between you and these other people?
Well then you’d better get used to people like Therese Coffey sneering at you while they grind their boots into your face – metaphorically, if not actually physically.
Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
