Hancock admits he got his vaccine strategy from a Hollywood movie

Contagion: Matt Hancock (in his own mind), yesterday.

Tory ‘Death Secretary’ Matt Hancock has admitted he decided to order 100 million doses of anti-Covid-19 vaccine  – not on the basis of expert advice but after watching the Hollywood blockbuster Contagion.

I know.

You feel safer just knowing that he’s in charge of this, don’t you?

No?

Join the club, then.

And this comment could explain everything about the way the UK is currently being run:

Journalist exposed to ‘torrent of abuse’ – claim – after MP put email exchange on Twitter

Kemi Badenoch: retaliatory harm.

Is it just a coincidence that this happened a week after a High Court judge decided that ‘blue tick’ Twitter users should not be considered responsible for the behaviour of their followers?

Clearly the ruling by Mrs Justice Collins Rice, in Rachel Riley’s case against me, is factually wrong. The experience of Huffington Post reporter Nadine White simply underlines the fact.

Ms White had emailed Tory equalities minister (surely a contradiction in terms?) Kemi Badenoch to inquire why she had not supported a pro-vaccine video by participating in it.

Badenoch had responded by putting the emails on Twitter alongside a comment that they were “creepy and bizarre” and the HuffPost was “looking to sow distrust”.

Labour has demanded an investigation into whether this breached the ministerial code.

In a letter to civil service head Simon Case, the party said Ms White had been exposed to “a torrent of abuse online” – a dogpile.

Riley’s case against This Writer also concerns questions about whether the TV parlour game-player deliberately intended to expose a teenage girl with mental health issues to a torrent of abuse also.

The world “torrent” has been applicable to Twitter dogpiles since the case of Jack Monroe and Katie Hopkins, in which the word was used to describe the number of messages Ms Monroe received after Hopkins tweeted a false claim about her.

It was also disputed. But Mr Justice Warby stated that “‘Torrent’ is a noun, used metaphorically here. It may be colourful, and may tend to overstate what happened. But it is not an invention and nor is it in my judgment a serious distortion.”

This means even if the size of the dogpile against Ms White was not very large, the description may still be applied justifiably.

Labour’s involvement is hypocritical though. It comes from a political party whose members (including MPs) have also triggered dogpiles – for example against This Writer after The Sunday Times falsely accused me of holocaust denial (on the basis of false information leaked by – guess who? – a Labour Party officer).

I am appealing against the judgment that suggests ‘blue tick’ Twitter users can publish anything they like about other people without having regard for the possible consequences to those people.

If I win – and evidence including the Warby judgment suggests that I may – then this could have severe consequences for a minister who tried to discredit a journalist who seems merely to have been doing her job.

I am crowdfunding for the means to win my case, which is proving extremely costly because of the behaviour of Riley’s legal team. Information about that is available here (a search for “libel Mike Sivier” should reveal the necessary links).

Anyone interested in helping is urged to do one or more of the following:

Consider making a donation yourself, if you can afford it, via the CrowdJustice page.

Email your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site.

Post a link to Facebook, asking readers to pledge.

On Twitter, tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

Justice isn’t for everybody – not in Tory Britain. It’s too expensive for most of us.

That doesn’t mean we should let a government minister – who should know better – inflict retaliatory harm against somebody who was only doing her job.

Tories announce plans to protect statues of racists – because that’s where their sympathies lie?

Over it goes: the toppling of the Colston statue, back in June 2020.

It seems the Conservative government has a new enemy to put alongside Priti Patel’s “activist lawyers” – but the theme of racism is the same.

Patel attacked “activist lawyers” who stopped her from deporting people as part of the “hostile environment” policy.

Robert Jenrick – the Tories’ bent housing and communities minister – has set his sights on anti-racism protesters, whom he described as “woke worthies”.

He was referring to people who tore down statues of racists and slave traders during the Black Lives Matter protests last summer.

But the plans he announced did not target people who vandalise public monuments – they are already covered by the criminal damage laws.

No – he wants to stop

 left wing Labour councils and mayors from tearing down statues, and changing controversial street names.

He reckons such behaviour is an attempt to erase parts of the nation’s history – but this is clearly hogwash. It is an attempt to change the way our national history is perceived, by de-glorifying people who never deserved any recognition in the first place.

By launching this attack, Jenrick is announcing to the world that the Conservative Party supports racism; that the Tories condone slavery.

And he may have a surprise, if his legislation gets through Parliament.

Under his plan, neighbourhoods will have to be consulted on plans to remove statues of racists and slavers.

But campaigners in Bristol

pointed out they had tried for years without success to get Bristol authorities to launch an official process to debate Colston’s influence in the city.

So in fact, it seems he’ll be handing anti-racism activists exactly the tools they need to get rid of these stains on our streets.

I would suggest that we don’t tell him, but…

He’s a Tory. There’s no reasoning with them and they’ll never accept they’re making a blunder.

Lords inflict two defeats on government over ‘spy cops’ bill – but Keir Starmer could have made it three

Keir Starmer: he thinks the government and its agents should be above the law.

The Tories bid to allow spies working for government agencies like the Financial Conduct Authority to commit crimes like murder and rape without fear of prosecution has been foiled by the Lords.

Peers supported amendments to the Covert Human Intelligence Sources Bill as follows:

Peers inflicted two significant defeats on the government on Wednesday evening over a bill to regulate the use of undercover informants, passing amendments to stop them participating in murder and rape, and to curtail the use of children as informants.

The government was also defeated by 299 to 284 on an amendment from the peer Doreen Massey, which proposed explicitly banning those acting undercover from being allowed to participate in a list of serious crimes, including murder, torture, rape or other sexual offences as they gained information.

Ministers had ruled out introducing such a list previously, arguing that creating a list of forbidden offences could give terrorists and serious criminals ways to unmask infiltrators by asking them to engage in such banned activities.

Campaign groups welcomed the result, arguing that it would put the UK on a par with similar western countries in setting clear limits.

Sadly, this result is notable for another reason – Labour leader Keir Starmer’s unacceptable support for the Bill with all immunities against criminal prosecution intact.

If he had whipped Labour to oppose it in the Commons, it would never have got as far as the Lords. But he didn’t.

Worse still, after former shadow attorney general Shami Chakrabarti put forward an amendment to remove immunity from prosecution for crimes from government agents who commit them, saying there would otherwise be a “grave risk” of human rights abuses by undercover agents, Starmer whipped Labour peers to abstain and it failed:

Peers were debating the bill at the second day of its report stage. On Monday, an amendment from Shami Chakrabarti seeking to strike out immunity for undercover agents acting within authorised guidelines was defeated by 309 to 153, after the Labour leadership chose to abstain.

It seems clear that this former Director of Public Prosecutions thinks the government and its agents should be above the law.

It is an unacceptable attitude for any potential national leader to have.

‘Out of touch’ Tory minister describes £170 Champagne as ‘alternative vaccine’ (Vox Political Scrapbook)

A Conservative minister has been branded “out of touch” after suggesting people … drown the sorrows of 2020 with a £170 bottle of champagne.

Amidst an economic recession and global pandemic, minister for housing Christopher Pincher … described Krug Grand Cru Cuvée as an “alternative vaccine” against the “memory of last year”.

In an article for conservative culture magazine The Critic, the minister wrote that a bottle of the wine was “ideal for lifting the spirit and lighting up a darkening winter afternoon,” noting its flavours of “tart satsuma” and “light, tight, nutty effervescence”.

Labour’s Mike Amesbury, shadow minister for housing, described Mr Pincher as “truly out of touch and breathtakingly arrogant.”

Looking after their chums: Jacob Rees-Mogg’s business partner gets senior trade role

Rees-Mogg: one of his business chums just landed a job in the government, for no very good reason.

Isn’t it strange how Tories say they hate socialism – but practise it all the time, albeit limited to just themselves and their chums.

We’ve got seriously straitened times coming, and the Tory response has been to hand billions of pounds, that was intended to cope with Coronavirus, to their friends under false pretences.

And those chums to whom they couldn’t hand over massive gobbets of public cash got public jobs instead – like this one:

Abusiness partner of Jacob Rees-Mogg, who is also a former vice-chair of the Conservative Party, has been appointed to a senior role at the Department for International Trade.

International Trade Secretary Liz Truss announced that Dominic Johnson, CEO of Somerset Capital Management, will be joining the DIT non-executive board, and will chair the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee.

It seems this Johnson’s qualification for the job is knowing Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Can you imagine the fuss they would make if anybody else adopted these corrupt practices?

The Expenses of the 300+ MPs Who Voted Against Free School Meals for Children – Dorset Eye

This Is How Much They Have Claimed in Expenses in the Last Year

322 MPs have recently voted against free meals for children in dire circumstances.

These MPs have believe that poor children are not entitled to free meals, whilst simultaneously claiming tens of thousands in expenses each year.

See the list here: The Expenses of the 300+ MPs Who Voted Against Free School Meals for Children – Dorset Eye

Former Tory Councillor jailed for 14 years after putting metal shards in baby food in sickening million-pound scam | Evolve Politics

Aformer Tory Councillor has been sentenced to 14 years in jail after being found guilty of putting metal shards in baby food and attempting to blackmail a leading supermarket chain in a horrific million-pound scam.

Nigel Wright, a sheep farmer from Market Rasden and former North East Lincolnshire Councillor, spent almost two years hiding jars of baby food laced with metal shards on the shelves of various Tesco stores throughout the north of the country between May 2018 and February 2020.

Priti Patel is NOT a ‘people’ person. Travellers are her latest victims. Will you be next?

She thinks it’s all great fun: but whoever put the horns on this image of Priti Patel knew the truth of the matter.

We know the Home Secretary is a full-on, flat-out racist – she deports foreigners, she would deport UK citizens if the Windrush scandal had not happened, and now she has been caught stirring up racial hatred against travellers.

It’s very odd behaviour for a person whose own parents were immigrants into the UK

But here it is: she has been caught fabricating details of a police officer’s death in order to make travellers seem inherently criminal, as an ethnic group.

And she did it in a Zoom meeting with Jewish leaders – hosted by the Board of Deputies of British Jews, which is itself notorious for its zealousness in defending their own ethnic group from claims that it has any inherently unsavoury traits.

In this, the Board of Deputies is right. No ethnic group is inherently criminal – as an ethnic group.

Yet Ms Patel said she was

determined to stamp out the “criminality that takes place and that has happened through Traveller communities and unauthorised encampments”.

More than 80 leading academics, race equality organisations, and politicians have signed a letter to Patel, urging her to retract her “hate speech”.

One has to ask how she would describe herself – the daughter of refugees who came to the UK after facing persecution in Uganda.

Ah, but that would probably be too close to home.

She seems a perfect candidate for “unconscious bias” training.

Except, of course, she’s probably one of the 40 Conservative MPs who have refused it out of hand. It seems she – and they – have some kind of bias against it…

She is the secretary of state for the Home Department.

She is a racist, to our certain knowledge.

She may also be prejudiced against any number of other traits.

So the question you have to ask yourself, in a country where the Home Secretary is lining people up to be her targets, is:

When will she send people for me?

POSTSCRIPT: Mrs Mike was disgusted to hear about Patel’s behaviour, and asked a very reasonable question: why do we put up with this unacceptable behaviour, these unacceptable viewpoints, from people who are supposed to be our political leaders?

Mrs Mike thinks Priti Patel should be pulled out of Parliament by the ear and slung onto the street.

She cannot understand why nobody has actually used legally-enforcible means to do this.

If this is how Tory MPs regard #socialdistancing they can’t expect us to do as they say

#ToryLawBreakers yet again: this time Tory MPs ignored social distancing to push to the front of the queue to vote – on a Bill that would break international law if passed.

Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised: as MPs voted to break international law, they also broke their own rules on social distancing.

How can they expect us to obey those laws – including the new “rule of six”, when they set such a bad example?

Here’s what happened, via the Enfield Independent:

Pass readers in the division lobbies used by MPs to record their votes stopped working.

They instead had to queue up, walk through the chamber and pause at the despatch box to announce their name and vote.

The problems emerged during a vote on the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill, with MPs asked to approve clause 46 – which is at the centre of a devolution row.

SNP health spokeswoman Dr Philippa Whitford [stated that] there was a “total failure” of social distancing in Parliament for the vote.

In a tweet, she said: “Now pass-readers aren’t working in either voting lobby so we see the Rees-Mogg conga in all its glory – with obvious crowding in members lobby & total failure of social distancing! Interesting that wearing of #Facecoverings limited to Welsh, NI & Scots MPs.”

Labour former minister Ben Bradshaw added: “More chaos in the Commons voting lobbies tonight as the card reading machines that replaced the previous perfectly good electronic voting system break down again & arrogant Tory MPs push to the front of the long queue completely ignoring social distancing rules.”

Were there no police on the Parliament estate, to arrest these lawbreakers?

If not, why not? There’s supposed to be a police presence there, just to protect our democratically-elected representatives from lunatics and terrorists.

There is a clear precedent here, though:

As Conservative MPs clearly do not accept the need for social distancing – or masks – in circumstances decided by their own whim, we don’t have to either.

Clearly everybody in the real world that isn’t Westminster Never-Neverland needs to use their judgement, but if we get challenged on apparent law-breaking we can simply invoke the Clause 46 precedent.

You never know – it might become as popular as the Cummings excuse that came before it.
