#PoorBoris – UK citizens give what sympathy they can to PM ‘complaining about money’

If you behave more like a performing monkey than a prime minister, you get what you deserve when you complain. It seems the UK’s performing monkey – Boris Johnson – is complaining, as his fans in The Times explain: On the personal front sources say Johnson is complaining about money. He is still supporting four out of his six children, has been through an expensive divorce and had his income drop by more than half as a result of fulfilling his lifetime ambition https://t.co/JGe3D91tOX — The Times (@thetimes) September 19, 2020 The…

#DonaldTrump accused of launching US version of #HitlerYouth

It seems the UK’s Johnson government isn’t the only political organisation copying whole chapters from the Nazi playbook. US President Donald Trump has announced a plan to set up what critics have already dubbed his own version of the Hitler Youth – the scheme that was used to indoctrinate millions of German youngsters into Nazism in the 1930s and 40s. The plan was announced in a Constitution Day speech at the White House Conference on American History at the National Archives Museum. Here’s CNN: “We must clear away the web…

Rashford strikes again – belittling ignorant Tory MP over ‘feeding children’ tweet

Footballer and food poverty campaigner Marcus Rashford scored against Kevin Hollinrake after the Tory MP shot his mouth off about parental responsibility to feed children. Hollinrake responded to a tweet from a member of the public asking why it was necessary for Marcus Rashford to make a stand for hungry children in society. This person asked: Isn’t that the job of our MPs? Hollinrake responded: “Where they can, it’s a parents job to feed their children.” But Rashford had noticed the exchange and responded to it – politely, but firmly:…

Why are individual schools being asked to pay millions for Covid-19 safety?

If the Tory government wants children to go back to school, then why isn’t Gavin Williamson prepared to pay the £216 million we’re told will be needed to protect them from Covid-19? Here’s The Mirror: Heads will have to pay the £216million cost of making schools safe for pupils to return this week. And staff fear they will have to raid cash meant for teaching. One union boss said: “The Government should cover these costs.” Teachers’ leaders say that England’s 21,622 schools – already cash-strapped after a decade of austerity –…

While Johnson blathers about schools being safe, a pupil is caught saying what we all think

Congratulations to the ITV microphone-jockey who picked up this little gem. Much has been made of Boris Johnson’s visit to Castle Rock School in Leicestershire – strangely a week before term started; I wonder how the kids were enticed in. If they were hand-picked, then I expect one choice is being regretted now. This is because – as Johnson waffled his usual piffle about schools being perfectly safe, one child was picked up by an ITV microphone describing him in exactly the same terms many of us would use: Give…

This Tory had 1,500 indecent images of children including BESTIALITY and TORTURE. Why was he not jailed?

What the blazes is wrong with our courts? Former Tory campaign manager Mark Lerigo was convicted of possessing more than 1,500 indecent images of children. This was really depraved stuff including images of bestiality – sex with animals – and torture. But he walked free from Warwick Crown Court, with nothing but a suspended jail term and an order to do just 150 hours’ community work. That’s even though the judge made it perfectly clear that “any consumer of this dreadful material causes others to make it”. So Lerigo was…

Child homelessness numbers when Covid-19 hit the UK shame us all. What will they be by Christmas?

Using an ad-blocker? PLEASE SWITCH IT OFF My ads don’t cost you anything but they do provide me the money I need to live. Using an ad-blocker on this site is as bad as stealing. How did the fifth-richest nation on the planet manage to allow nearly 130,000 children to be homeless when a killer virus swept over the country? The statistic should be a source of national shame, even though I’m not convinced by the Mirror‘s claim that it is the worst level of child homelessness in 14 years. This…

Tory ‘rape clause’ starts to fall apart: how can a woman be denied benefit for being raped in the wrong order?

Using an ad-blocker? PLEASE SWITCH IT OFF My ads don’t cost you anything but they do provide me the money I need to live. Using an ad-blocker on this site is as bad as stealing. We’ve been waiting for this for a long time. The experience of the lady involved in this story shows that the Tories are discriminating unfairly between rape victims. They’re saying that a person can have two children and still receive the child element of Universal Credit for a third born of rape, only if it…

What will you say when they ask what you did in the class war?

I seem to have hit a nerve when I said the Tories are waging a class war on anyone who isn’t filthy rich. In fact, two Vox Political articles touched on this class war – the first implied it, the second made it explicit. Today I opened Twitter to discover those words all over the place: The A levels are the ruling class brazenly saying – “we’ll fix society now like we always have” Only thing, this time you can see the workings Mind you, anyone who dares to REALLY challenge…

Covid class war: Tories are forcing food poverty through the roof as poor people face risk of poisoning

How is Fat Boris Johnson going to justify his silly campaign to make people eat more healthily when so many of us are getting money from food banks, or buying the cheapest (and therefore least healthy) available because we can’t afford anything else? A new report by the Food Standards Agency has revealed that the Covid-19 crisis – and the Conservative government’s decisions relating to it – have caused a huge increase in referrals to food banks. Because the Tories couldn’t be bothered to ensure the financial security of the…
