Here’s the only response to Suella Braverman’s US immigration speech you need

Suella Braverman: racist, sexist, homophobic. Right?

If you’re hoping for an in-depth analysis of all the Tory crowing in support of Suella Braverman’s racist, sexist and homophobic speech against immigration at a US think tank last week, I’m happy to disappoint you.

There’s really very little to say about a lot of Tories supporting an unacceptable view.

I’ve already provided my comments on the speech itself, here.

But I did want to highlight what I think is the best comment on it, which came in musical form. Here it is:

Any questions?

Met Police has lost public trust; it is sexist, racist and homophobic

Police: even in the illustration it seems the policeman is mistreating the policewoman.

The verdict is out on the Metropolitan Police – and it couldn’t be more damning.

The force is institutionally racist, sexist and homophobic – to the point where rape might as well be legal in London, according to a report, that took a year to prepare, by Baroness Casey.

Here’s the gist:

Shall we go a bit further into how the Met has failed women in particular?

Analysis by the BBC states,

This report is so ferocious in its criticism that, in the short term, it is almost certain that trust and confidence levels in the police in London – already down – will plummet further.

With forces across England and Wales, like the Met, re-vetting all their officers, more scandals will emerge.

Every misconduct hearing, every court case, is going to damage public confidence.

A generation after the Macpherson report found the Metropolitan Police to be institutionally racist, here we are again. Only worse. Sexism and homophobia are added to the list.

It asks what the solution could be. After all, the situation could hardly be said to have been different in 1972, when then newly-appointed commissioner Sir Robert Mark said he had “never experienced…blindness, arrogance and prejudice on anything like the scale accepted as routine in the Met”.

Current Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley says he needs patience to achieve the turnabout required. Baroness Casey has suggested the Met could be broken up, if things don’t approve.

The situation at the Met proves only one thing: Power corrupts.

And with Suella Braverman as the politician responsible for imposing lasting change, isn’t it more likely that the corruption in the Met will become absolute?

Dick put ‘on notice’ – but why because of her officers and not because of herself?

Cressida Dick: she regularly appears in the media, trying to mitigate the shocking offences committed by Metropolitan Police officers – and their commissioner.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick has been put “on notice” by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, that she must reverse the culture of racism, homophobia, bullying and misogyny discovered in her service’s ranks since she took over.

Khan is said to have referred to it as “a return to the bad days of the Met of his childhood in the 1970s and 80s”.

Certainly there is reason to find fault with the Met Police under Dick’s direction.

The latest revelations show officers, mainly at Charing Cross, had joked about rape, domestic violence and killing black children.

A report by the Independent Office of Police Conduct stated, “We believe these incidents are not isolated or simply the behaviour of a few ‘bad apples’.”

Recent history bears this out.

Look at Wayne Couzens, who kidnapped, raped and murdered Sarah Everard, and burned the body to evade detection. Did Charing Cross officers make a joke about that? One Met officer certainly did – he shared memes showing a police officer kidnapping a woman, but has been allowed to keep his job.

Three more officers were charged with sex offences in October alone. One – David Carrick – now faces charges relating to 29 offences including many rapes between 2009 and 2020. Francois Olwage faces child sex charges. Adam Zaman has been charged with rape.

And what about the officers assigned to guard the bodies of murdered women, who took photographs of them and shared the images on a WhatsApp group because they thought it was funny? The mother of murdered sisters Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry demanded that Dick clear the rot from the Met but that clearly hasn’t happened.

Incidents in which Met officers have stopped and searched people who happen to have been “driving while black” abound.

But Cressida Dick herself is not above suspicion either. Both she and the service she heads were found to have been “institutionally corrupt” in their handling of the Daniel Morgan murder inquiry.

And now it seems she is busily covering up the misdeeds of Boris Johnson in the Partygate scandal. Initially the Met refused to investigate allegations of more than a dozen lockdown-busting Downing Street parties, claiming there was no evidence, even though officers from that service were guarding the doors of Number 10 at the time and it seems unlikely that they could have failed to notice civil servants carrying suitcases full of wine bottles into the building.

After Sue Gray uncovered a huge mass of evidence, Dick stepped in and announced that the Met had decided to investigate after all – and this meant the senior civil servant must edit details relating to the 12 parties under police investigation out of her report.

It seems, even after being labelled “corrupt” in the Morgan report, Dick just can’t stop interfering.

So now Sadiq Khan has put her “on notice”. If she does not clean up her act, and that of her officers, then according to a source close to Khan, “the mayor will have to consider whether she is the right person to lead the change needed at the Met”.

He means he’ll have her removed.

As far as some of us are concerned, such a move can’t come soon enough. He should have done it already.

Michael Gove: sexist, racist, homophobic and divisive – from his own lips

Michael Gove: One wonders how Chelsea FC and its fans feel about having this racist, sexist, homophobic hater of the North as a fellow supporter.

It shouldn’t be a surprise. After all, he did think rape was funny.

Michael Gove apologised for his comments about Harvey Weinstein’s bedroom…

… but it turns out he has been making similar comments in public since at least 1987, according to The Independent.

The newspaper has listed sexist, racist and homophobic comments from 1987 and 1993 – all of which should have disqualified him from ever being considered a suitable candidate for a Parliamentary seat.

He was elected into Parliament in 2005. Presumably some Tory sponsor thought he had lived down his words after 12 years. Little did they know what would happen 12 years later… or, indeed, now.

And what has happened now?

Well, we’ve found out what he said all those years ago. Probably the most offensive part – to the most people – is the classist statements (below):

Yes – it’s worse than the sexism and racism because the North will hate being pigeonholed so offensively and the South will hate being assumed to hate the North.

At the very least, it’s not good for sales.

The real question about this scandal is what Boris Johnson will do about it.

Gove is currently Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, which doesn’t mean a lot. But he’s tipped to become either Foreign or Home Secretary in a mooted Cabinet reshuffle.

If Johnson goes through with the alleged plan to give Gove a more high-profile job, after these revelations came to light, he’ll upset millions of people…

… and show that he couldn’t care less about the feelings of the “happy” South (ha ha) or the “cruel, dirty, toothless” North. Electoral suicide.

Coward Starmer sends nonentity Reeves to apologise for his visit to homophobic church because he’s not big enough to say sorry

Keir Starmer fails again: This Site uses this image to signify failure by the Labour Party’s right-wing leader. It’s getting so I don’t need any other images of him at all.

If anything demonstrates that Keir Starmer should not be the United Kingdom’s prime minister, it is this.

We’ve already got a PM who won’t take personal responsibility for his mistakes, stupidities and stated policies of oppression; we don’t need another.

Starmer recently not only visited a church whose priest expresses anti-LGBT+ views – he made a video about it. Here it is:

If he didn’t know about the views held by the congregation at this church, he should have done some research (or his researchers should have). That in itself would be bad enough.

Worse was the fact that he didn’t have the guts to come back and admit he was wrong in person. He’s a coward – or he’s so arrogant that he can’t own up to his mistakes personally. Neither is a good look for a prospective national leader.

Instead, we were offered this, and told to take it or leave it:

The response has been a universal chorus in favour of leaving it – and him – for glaringly obvious reasons, like the fact that he spent the length of his own video endorsing Jesus House. This means Reeves lied:

Oh yes – Starmer tweeted about it, but he absolutely wasn’t going to face the grilling he knew he would get if he actually faced the press.

And all this happened just weeks before the nation goes to the polls for the long-delayed local elections.

Starmer can congratulate himself on briefly securing – then throwing away – the homophobic vote.

Anyone who isn’t a bigot will now stay at home anyway, rather than vote for a party he leads.

Boris Johnson: don’t let the media make a messiah out of this racist, sexist, cowardly liar

You may have seen some news reports suggesting that contingency plans were made for Boris Johnson’s death of coronavirus – suggesting that his recovery may have been miraculous in some way.

In other words, the Tories and their supine media were trying to cook up a “back from the dead” story for Johnson, painting him as a Messiah-figure who has returned from the brink of the grave to bring strong leadership to a country desperately in need of it.

In other words, they’re trying to feed us another load of old pigswill.

Boris Johnson isn’t a messiah – he’s a sexist, racist, homophobic, cowardly liar.

Remember his Brexit campaign, when he lied that the NHS would be given £350 million a week? That investment might have done us all some good, prior to the coronavirus crisis but it was never going to happen because the Tories have been running the NHS down to make it ripe for privatisation – which would have made the UK even less capable of handling Covid-19.

Remember when he tried to make a joke of the massive loss of lives in the Libyan city of Sirte during that nation’s civil war? Or when he had to be stopped from inappropriately quoting a colonial poem by Kipling in Myanmar?

Remember when Eddie Mair, on BBC Radio 4, read out a litany of Johnson’s racist behaviour, to the dismay of Amber Rudd?

When Johnson refused to condemn widespread police violence against civilians in Catalonia?

When he spoke nonsense about Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in Parliament, and the Iranian government used it to threaten her with an extra five years in prison, beyond the five she was already serving on a trumped-up charge?

When he was reprimanded by then-Commons Speaker John Bercow for referring to Emily Thornberry in “frankly sexist” terms?

When he praised Viktor Orban on his election win in Hungary after an anti-Semitic campaign?

His sexist and Islamophobic comments about women who wear the burqa?

The £53 million he spaffed on a ‘Garden Bridge’ that was never built?

His cowardice during the Tory leadership campaign when he was the absentee candidate?

The racist poem he published, saying that Scottish people were a “verminous” race that should be placed in ghettos and exterminated?

His racist assessment of the French as “turds“?

The allegation that Downing Street sought to restrict Johnson’s access to sensitive intelligence when he became Foreign Secretary?

The evidence that he met a Russian ex-KGB agent without being accompanied by his personal security detail, which strongly suggested that he was harming the UK’s security in relation to Russia? What happened about the so-called ‘Russia report’, discussing such security issues, that Johnson has been suppressing since before the general election last year?

His reference to gay men as “tank top-wearing bumboys“?

His question about Irish PM Leo Varadkar: “Why isn’t he called Murphy like the rest of them?”

His clueless claim that hard work can cure mental illness?

His relaxed attitude to his MPs abusing women?

His lie that the NHS would get 20 hospital upgrades, starting in his first week as prime minister – that he then edited out of a video?

His illegal attempt to prorogue Parliament?

His obscene description of then-Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn?

The corruption scandal in which he allegedly gave public money to his friend Jennifer Arcuri? What happened about that, by the way?

The allegation that Boris had taken money for his Tory leadership campaign from a group of hedge fund bosses who planned to make a fortune by getting him to force a “no deal” Brexit? What happened about that, by the way?

His decision to run away when the UK was flooded and needed strong leadership?

His failure to follow his own social distancing rules and subsequent illness with coronavirus? If he had died, it would have been of stupidity.

But he was never in any danger of death – and the people of the UK are registering their disgust at this latest attempt to make fools of us:

The only sane choice is to agree with the sentiment immediately above.

Or are you content to be brainwashed by the BBC?

Jeremy Corbyn could do with more hecklers like this – they make his case for him

A heckler who asked Jeremy Corbyn if the UK’s prime minister should be a “terrorist sympathiser” was himself linked to racist and homophobic comments on Twitter.

People like Church of Scotland minister Reverend Richard Cameron do excellent work in clearing the air of these poisonous, false suggestions by being highly questionable themselves.

Here’s the incident, caught on video:

The reference to an “Islamic jihadi” scarf was insensitive, as Mr Corbyn was wearing a scarf gifted to him by care charity Who Cares? Scotland, and had been explaining what it meant to him when Mr Cameron interrupted:

He went on to ask, “Are you invited to the funeral?” – believed to be a reference to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was recently killed by US forces. The radio station LBC has also tried to kick up a stink about this, but has been accused of misleading the public (more about this in another post).

Then he asked whether Mr Corbyn thought the UK’s prime minister should be a terrorist sympathiser, and “Who’s going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you’re prime minister?”

Of course we know that Mr Corbyn doesn’t sympathise with terrorists; any such accusations have been proved unfounded.

But Mr Cameron’s own Twitter account makes very clear indications of his own sympathies.

Consider this tweet:

https://twitter.com/thebiblestrue/status/898246099944837120

Some of his tweets seem to have disappeared from his timeline but Indy100 has kindly supplied examples to the world. This one shows support for Boris Johnson’s brand of Islamophobia:

And here’s one that suggests he is homophobic as well:

Finally, it seems Mr Cameron is also anti-Semitic, which tends to scuttle claims that Jeremy Corbyn is of the same persuasion:

What a charmer.

When people with such obvious prejudices attack a politician like Mr Corbyn, they make it clear that it is their opinions that are at fault – not his.

Mr Corbyn walked away, showing he wants nothing to do with people like this.

I’m with him – wouldn’t you be?

Gyimah joins the Lib Dems. Are they now the party of homophobia?

Unpleasant company: The more Tories Jo Swinson welcomes into the Liberal Democrat, the more right-wing her party will become.

What is happening to the Liberal Democrats?

Jo Swinson’s tactic of taking in every waif and stray from the Conservative Party and Change UK may seem to be a sound way to increase her party’s presence in Parliament.

But it is changing the nature of that party at the same time.

When Phillip Lee crossed the floor of the House of Commons, the Liberal Democrat spokeswoman on LGBT+ issues quit, on the grounds that he was a homophobe.

Now Sam Gyimah has – rather dramatically – quit the Conservatives to be revealed as the latest Lib Dem recruit at their party conference. And this makes matters worse.

You see, Mr Gyimah famously filibustered a law to pardon all gay and bisexual men in England and Wales historically convicted of sexual offences that are no longer criminal, in 2016.

He claimed that the bill did not give strong enough protections against men being accidentally pardoned for sex with a minor or non-consensual sex.

But this was nonsense. As SNP MP John Nicolson explained at the time, “If the crime for which you were convicted is still a crime, by definition you are not pardoned.”

So – well, I don’t often agree with Wes Streeting, but he seems to have got it right with this tweet:

And as Owen Jones has now added:

Tom Clark of Another Angry Voice is more blunt:

In a way, it’s a shame. Mr Gyimah’s parting shots at the leader of his former party were strong:

“I listen to ministers undermining the courts,” he said. “Ministers questioning experts because their views are inconvenient for what the government is saying about no deal. You have a government that says law enforcement is the centrepiece of its platform, and yet says in another breath that it will pick and choose what laws it chooses to respect.

“This is in many ways undermining key pillars of our constitution and the functioning of our democracy. The issue for me is not just Brexit. It is beyond Brexit – how you conduct politics and the veering towards populism and English nationalism.”

Not only have the Liberal Democrats tarnished themselves by tacitly condoning homophobia, but it also seems their ‘Party of Remain’ credentials are in tatters too.

Writing in the Observer, party leader Jo Swinson stated: “The Liberal Democrats are the strongest Remain party in the UK, and we continue to grow, adding members, councillors and MPs. When a general election comes, we will be ready for it and ready to take our clear, pro-European message to the country.”

But it seems her plan to cancel Brexit isn’t Liberal – and is especially un-Democrat-ic; given the chance, she would not check that it was what the general public wants but would simply stop the process by which the UK is leaving the European Union.

In its way, that’s just as bad as the Conservatives’ determination to force their version of Brexit on us, whether we want it or not.

It means Labour is now the only major political party – certainly in England – that would give voters a say on Brexit.

Boris Johnson caught out over London Pride – if he becomes PM this could happen daily

Boris Johnson: Last time, he was berated for calling the French “turds”. Now his comments on London Pride have been undermined because he called gay men “tank-top wearing bum boys”.

The Indy100 crew probably thought this an amusing bit of fun but there’s a worrying undertone to it.

Boris Johnson, front-runner to be the next Conservative leader – and our next prime minister, tweeted his support for LGBT+ rights during London Pride weekend…

… to a hugely negative response:

https://twitter.com/napoleon1972/status/1147492627576688640

The problem is that this is not an isolated incident.

Mr Johnson has made his views known on many matters – and they were mostly views that could cause him serious embarrassment, were they to be brought back to light while he was serving a term as prime minister.

And you can bet that, if he becomes PM after July 23, that is exactly what will happen. And with a clown as prime minister, you can be sure the whole world will be laughing at us…

… Even people who are usually afraid of clowns.

Tories suspend ‘antisemitic tweet’ candidate – SKWAWKBOX

Antisemitic, homophobic and sexist Tory council candidate George C Stoakley has been suspended by the Conservative Party, according to Skwawkbox.

Some of you might remember that this happened to me, right before the council elections last year (although the allegations against me were false). I remained a candidate, as an independent, and people voted for me – although not enough of them for me to take the seat.

I wonder how many people will vote for this proven racist, homophobe and sexist?

A CCHQ spokesperson responded:

George Stoakley has been suspended and an investigation is underway.

With the ballot taking place a week from now, it appears the Tories will be one candidate down in South Cambridgeshire, although Mr Stoakley may still stand as an independent.
