US Congress threatens to pull out of #freetrade deal if UK undermines #GoodFridayAgreement

This is awkward for Boris Johnson. The US Congress – or at least members of it – is threatening to withdraw from any free trade deal with the UK if Boris Johnson’s Internal Market Bill undermines the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland. This is a body blow to Johnson, who has claimed that the Bill is vitally important even though it very clearly breaks international law by shattering treaty agreements with the EU and in NI. According to the BBC: US Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week…

#BorisJohnson wants to dictate when – and WHETHER – #elections take place – as #VoxPolitical warned you

Remember last December when This Site warned the UK electorate that Boris Johnson’s manifesto said, “We will impose an indefinite Conservative government”? It means he planned to stay in power just as long as he wanted to, with no election unless he felt like it. And the UK electorate ignored the warning and voted for him in what may be the last democratic election to take place in this country. Do you think that’s overstating the case? If so, you haven’t been paying attention. Johnson intends to repeal the Human…

Straight from the Nazi playbook: #ToryLawBreakers resort to propaganda to justify themselves

After the Tories in the House of Commons voted en masse to break international law and turn the UK into a rogue state – with which nobody is likely to want to trade, did they show an ounce of remorse? Not a bit of it! They tweeted this: 🥀👎 Tonight Labour voted against the UK Internal Market Bill – which will guarantee seamless trade between the home nations of the UK. 💬 "Labour just followed their instinct to side with Brussels again. We'll always work to ensure the UK continues to…

Priti Patel: ‘it’s okay for Tory MPs to break the law but I’ll call the cops if you have a garden party’

The UK has become a police state under the Tories, with them breaking the law left, right and centre while the public are punished. That is what Home Secretary Priti Patel told us today (September 15), when she said she would inform the police if she found people breaking the so-called “Rule of 6” that bans public gatherings of more than six people. She, of course, has just voted for her Tory government to break international law by overriding the EU withdrawal agreement. And let’s not forget that she was…

#ToryLawBreakers: the 340 MPs who voted like sheep to turn the UK into a rogue state

It is as This Writer predicted – despite the many contradictory justifications Boris Johnson provided for his international law-breaking Internal Market Bill, no fewer than 339 of the 363 other Conservative MPs voted with him to ruin the UK’s reputation for many years to come. You can read some of the arguments against Johnson’s nonsense Bill here. And Labour’s Ed Miliband made a spectacular speech trashing Johnson here. But it was not enough to stop hundreds of Tory MPs following Johnson mindlessly through the “Aye” lobby. Clearly they had been…

Miliband masters Johnson in clash over Bill to break international law

Given that Boris Johnson had threatened to withdraw the whip from Tory MPs voting against his Internal Market Bill, one would have expected him to launch a spirited defence of it during the debate. That expectation may be doubled in the knowledge that he was facing not Keir Starmer, who had run away to self-isolate after one of the children he sent to our “perfectly safe” schools exhibited Covid-19 symptoms, nor Angela Rayner, but Ed Miliband. Certain commentators were betting on a knockout win for Johnson, against a man who…

Johnson threatens to remove Tory whip from MPs voting against his Brexit Bill. Deja vu?

It is indeed reminiscent of last year – but back then, Boris Johnson was trying to coerce his colleagues into voting to uphold his EU Withdrawal Agreement. Now he’s trying to coerce them into voting against it. What a vacillating political vacuum he is. He’s gambling on enough of the 2019 Parliamentary intake being so stupid that they think loyalty to their leader is more valuable than loyalty to the law. It isn’t. The fact is that anybody voting to break international law will have a stain on their reputation…

Johnson’s first Attorney General condemns his plan to betray EU withdrawal agreement

That’s scuppered the claims that the row over Boris Johnson’s plan to break international law is a last gasp of the so-called ‘Remainers’, then. Geoffrey Cox – a devout Brexiter – was Attorney General when Boris Johnson signed his EU withdrawal agreement in January. His announcement that he will not support Johnson’s Internal Markets Bill is proof that the controversy extends much further than the established battle lines. The story broke in The Times, which is behind a paywall. However, the East Fife Times has this: Boris Johnson’s former attorney general, Geoffrey…

The Bar Council has laid into Suella Braverman so let’s all join in

The UK’s professional organisation representing barristers has accused Brextremist Attorney General Suella Braverman of sacrificing the UK’s reputation, sidelining legal advisers and bypassing the ministerial code. At its annual general meeting, members of the Bar Council asked Braverman how she thought the UK’s Tory government could retain “a shred of credibility” in imploring other countries to follow international law after revealing its own willingness to breach agreements. Here’s The Guardian with details of the festivities: Five QCs confronted the attorney general during Saturday’s meeting, telling her that a crime which broke…

Going, going, Gove: the Tory hypocrite who’ll break international law but demands we obey his ‘Rule of Six’

Michael Gove appeared on breakfast TV, to demand that we all – including our children, obey his government’s new prohibition of social gatherings of more than six people. Why should we obey this, when he went on to admit that the government itself will break international law and turn the UK into a rogue state that no other country will trust? I don’t have a clip of him calling on us to obey the ‘Rule of Six’ – which is a stupid demand that won’t stop the now-uncontrollable spread of…
