UK end-of-year report: Michelle Mone loses Tory whip

This is about the corrupt awarding of contracts to firms that did not supply adequate materials (in this case, Personal Protective Equipment to help with the Covid-19 crisis).

Phil Moorhouse of A Different Bias lays out the situation as it stood at midday on December 7:

Keir Starmer interrogated Rishi Sunak about this in Prime Minister’s Questions – and Sunak was pilloried for his response. Note that he confirmed that Mone “no longer has the Conservative whip”:

The sideswipe from Sunak, that Labour should “stand up for working people” – by opposing industrial action by working people who are struggling to survive in an atmosphere of real-terms pay cuts while inflation spirals out-of-control – is perverse.

It’s shameful that the UK has been reduced to having a prime minister who can’t respond naturally to questions but has to read his answers from a piece of paper.

Who’s telling him what to say about this scandal?

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.
