The anti-strike Bill is part of a Tory attack on your rights

Manifesto commitment: the Conservatives made their plan to end democracy clear in their 2019 election manifesto. Every Conservative voter demanded an end to democracy and a slide into dictatorship.

The Tory anti-strike Bill, that aims to undermine your ability to demand better pay and working conditions and prevent bosses and shareholders from ripping off customers for a quick quid, is part of an attack on democracy itself.

That’s the line from Jeremy Corbyn – and, as always, he’s right. But I’ll let his words speak for themselves:

The government’s anti-strike bill is part of a broader attack on our fundamental democratic rights. The Public Order Bill curtails our right to protest. Voter ID effectively erodes the right to vote for millions of people who lack access to the relevant documentation.

You see, it’s all part of a package, designed to turn you into a third-class citizen with no say in what happens to your country or to you, while the Tories and their friends/donors get to do what they like… to you.

Believe it or not, millions of people voted for this might-as-well-be-enslavement.

It was on page 48 of the Tory manifesto for the 2019 general election.

Boris Johnson and Donald Trump DID discuss selling the NHS – as Jeremy Corbyn said

Buddies: Boris Johnson and Donald Trump really were discussing the sale of a privatised NHS to firms in the United States, it seems – while dishonestly accusing Jeremy Corbyn of lying when he exposed the plan.

Here’s a revelation…

… except it isn’t; some of us have known about it for years…

(In fact, let’s have a bit of video of the moment we were told…)

… but for those who refused to accept the evidence then, let’s go over it again quickly now (from the Byline Times article:

Boris Johnson privately discussed privatising the NHS with Donald Trump, according to a new biography of the former Prime Minister.

The claim… suggests that the former PM asked Trump not to publicly mention their discussions as they could create “mischief” if they were to become widely known.

However, he suggested that they could privately discuss it together.

“Some people in my party and other parties might make mischief if you talk about doing that, Donald,” Johnson told him. “Let’s talk about it all you like in private when you’re here, but we can keep it to ourselves.”

Claims of secret talks between the two countries about privatising the NHS were denied at the time.

Johnson’s Government faced allegations in 2019 of secretly planning to privatise the National Health Service as part of a post-Brexit trade deal with the US. At the time, then Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn published official documents suggesting UK officials had been in secret trade talks with US firms about the NHS.

The documents suggested that America was seeking “total market access” to the UK’s health service after Brexit.

Johnson’s Government dismissed the claims at the time, insisting the NHS would always remain “off the table” in talks with the US.

So there you have it.

Jeremy Corbyn was right about plans to privatise the NHS and sell it off to the United States, and Boris Johnson, Liz Truss, and the rest of the Tories were themselves lying when they called him a liar for mentioning it.

Or so the evidence states. I’d like to see any hard facts from Johnson, Truss, or indeed anyone else that can refute it.

You can’t trust the Tories. But did their lies manage to convince you at the election?

He hasn’t actually said this: but Boris Johnson definitely DID lie to you in order to win the general election, and now we all know it. How can he expect us to trust him or his degraded party?

The Tories lied blatantly to win the 2019 general election, according to research from King’s College, London.

Tactics to mislead the public included  altering a video of Sir Keir Starmer and posing as a fact-checker on Twitter during a leaders’ debate.

The clip was edited to show the current Labour leader, then shadow Brexit secretary, failing to answer a question on the EU when in fact he had responded to it in a live television interview.

The report said the Tories also deliberately shared “poorly formatted and low-quality” posts on social media, including a widely-ridiculed tweet using the comic sans font, to gain attention through critical coverage.

After a public information campaign highlighted five ways of spreading false information last year, the Tory campaign was found to have used four of them.

Fact-checking organisation First Draft found that Labour, the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats all published misleading advertising during the campaign – but the Tories were by far the worst.

First Draft said 88 per cent of their most shared online adverts between December 1-4 contained misleading information, compared to 6.7 per cent for Labour.

King’s College researchers said the Tory government’s – let’s not beat around the bush – lies created trust issues for the public, at a time when the governing party is trying to convince us it can be trusted to tell us the facts about Covid-19:

“It wants citizens to believe the message that it is ‘succeeding’ in controlling the epidemic, despite its recent electoral record of using disinformation tactics and admitting it unapologetically.”

The Tories have – unsurprisingly – denied everything, even though they had previously admitted altering the video footage, unapologetically.

And their spokesperson added a few more statements you might consider to be stretching credibility:

“We are delivering on the promises the British public elected us on, getting Brexit done, investing in our public services and levelling-up across the country.“

It’s a good question, isn’t it?

Would Tory voters have done so if they knew how much disinformation the party was using in its campaign? And do they believe what the Tories are saying now?

Sadly This Site can’t do a poll about this – there’s no way of ensuring that only Tory voters would respond.

We KNEW Tory ministers were warned about coronavirus in 2019. Now we have damning details

Boris Johnson: If he had taken seriously the briefings on coronavirus he had LAST YEAR, he might not have caught it.

There is nothing new in the Guardian headline that UK (Tory) ministers were warned last year about the risks of the coronavirus pandemic.

One day This Writer will tire of mentioning this, but my blog article of March 30 – gosh, nearly a month ago, now! – made this abundantly clear:

Boris Johnson was first briefed about a new virus causing havoc in Wuhan, China, in November 2019. He did nothing.

Okay?

The details now reported by the Graunare damning:

The recommendations within it included the need to stockpile PPE (personal protective equipment), organise advanced purchase agreements for other essential kit, establish procedures for disease surveillance and contact tracing, and draw up plans to manage a surge in excess deaths.

Having plans for helping British nationals abroad and repatriating them to the UK was also flagged as a priority.

All of these areas have come under relentless scrutiny since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, with the government accused of being too slow to react to the crisis. It is now under sustained pressure to provide answers about what was done nationally and locally to provide the support that planners have long called for, amid growing fears ministers were “caught out” by the crisis and have been playing catchup ever since.

So where, later in the same article, we see a government spokesperson saying:

“This is an unprecedented global pandemic and we have taken the right steps at the right time to combat it, guided at all times by the best scientific advice.”

This is quite clearly false.

I would agree with the source who said the Tories had not properly focused on the pandemic threat and had been “caught out” flat-footed.

Watch, in the months to come, as the Tories fall over each other to claim there won’t be any need for an inquiry into their sheer, possibly-criminal, incompetence.

The Labour leak made a big fuss of the 2017 election – why aren’t we talking about last year’s?

Keir Starmer: is he happy to be stained by the corruption alleged against Labour officers over the last few years?

We’ve all heard the claims from the leaked Labour report into factionalism in the party that interfered with anti-Semitism investigations – it also stopped the party winning the 2017 election.

Nothing was done about the right-wing faction that was said to be sabotaging Labour’s election hopes.

While some of the faces changed, we may take it as read that the same attitudes prevailed in Labour HQ – even after last year’s Panorama documentary, Is Labour Antisemitic?, revealed the rot at the heart of the party (although the perpetrators were claiming to be the good guys).

So this should come as no surprise:

Labour officials ran a secret operation to deceive Jeremy Corbyn at last year’s general election, micro-targeting Facebook adverts at the leader and his closest aides to convince them the party was running the campaign they demanded.

Campaign chiefs at Labour HQ hoodwinked their own leader because they disapproved of some of Corbyn’s left-wing messages.

They convinced him they were following his campaign plans by spending just £5,000 on adverts solely designed to be seen by Corbyn, his aides and their favourite journalists, while pouring far more money into adverts with a different message for ordinary voters.

What was the message – “don’t vote Labour”?

The more were learn about the rot that has been growing in the heart of Labour since before the days of Tony Blair (This Writer personally believes it started to set in during the leadership of Neil Kinnock), the worse it seems.

Jeremy Corbyn was certainly at fault for failing to take action, although he may have felt constrained by the spin that may have been put on it – by, for example, the organisations who lobbied so strongly about alleged anti-Semitism.

Keir Starmer is under no such constraints, although he will be if he fails to take swift and decisive action (something he has hitherto been reluctant to attempt).

It seems to This Writer that the Americans have the right idea after all.

When they change government from Democrat to Republican, or vice versa, the incoming administration changes everybody – all of the civil servants – to ensure that the workers enacting their policies are fully supportive of them.

I had always considered it somewhat extreme.

But recent revelations suggest that this is exactly what should happen in the Labour Party – certainly if a left-wing leader ever gains ascendance there again.

And Starmer will have to do the same, sooner or later.

Whether deservedly or not, the party’s reputation is now one of corruption.

If the new leader doesn’t make a show of purging it, then he will be stained by it.

Was this the moment Boris Johnson ensured that LABOUR will win the election?

Boris Johnson: Is this how he looks when he realises he has said the wrong thing yet again?

Do you remember when Gordon Brown referred to “that bigoted woman” after talking to a voter in the run-up to the 2010 general election, having forgotten that he was wearing a microphone and it was switched on?

The recording – and his reaction when it was played back to him in a radio studio – went viral and may well have ensured that Labour lost that election. We ended up with a hung Parliament and the infamous “Con-Dem Coalition” of Tories and Liberal Democrats that created the conditions that are still harming the country – and killing members of its population – now.

Today, with concerns over NHS services and its possible privatisation – by his Conservative party, Boris Johnson was asked about Jack, the four-year-old boy with pneumonia who was photographed by his mother, sleeping on a hospital floor.

And he did this:

He didn’t even look at the image; just waffled around and tried to steal the phone it was on!

It’s actually worse than what Gordon Brown did, because Mr Johnson knew exactly what he was up to – and that he was being filmed doing it.

It tells us all what Mr Johnson was thinking: “Don’t show me somebody’s urchin when I’m trying to lie to you.”

If you think otherwise, consider his response when challenged about it later:

More evasion, waffle and lies.

The Tories aren’t putting the biggest-ever investment in the NHS. New Labour did that.

I wasn’t aware of any Bill going through Parliament before Labour let Mr Johnson have his election, to ensure NHS funding above inflation every year – and I’m pretty sure it would not have been blocked by MPs. And there’s no need for an Act of Parliament to increase NHS funding.

(Oh, and Brexit won’t get done because it’s a years-long process, and the Tories won’t invest massively in our public services because they’re in negotiations with Donald Trump, trying to sell the lot to US companies.)

A commenter on This Site’s Facebook page had a better grasp of the situation: ‘You have heard of “Elf on a Shelf” well this is “Poor on the Floor” – vote Conservative to create many more stories like this, and maybe a “Boris Bonus” where children actually die.’

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was in Bristol, where he had been greeted by an unfathomable number of supporters who heard him discuss Mr Johnson’s latest foot-in-mouth moment:

Who would you trust to make the NHS able to provide proper treatment for Jack, every time?

It’s got to be Corbyn and Labour.

Want to know why the media – and the Tories – are lying so hard about Labour and Corbyn? Watch this

Have you wondered why the Establishment – the mass media in step with the Conservative government and the suits behind them both – is so desperate to smear Jeremy Corbyn as an anti-Semite (or whatever they’re saying today) and Labour as unfit for government?

It’s because they have a lot to lose if a government is elected that will end the exploitation of the wider public and the domination of industry and the economy by a tiny few billionaires.

All of this is laid out in a very short film.

The Deep State has been made by Flying Tiger Productions and is available to view – free – on Facebook.

See for yourself – here it is:

The Canary has described it as follows:

“This important film exposes how the establishment uses the mainstream media, smears and deception to stay in power. The complex web of lies and misdirection they weave has been expertly unpicked and laid bare by our friends at Flying Tiger Productions. Please watch and share widely.”

Yes – please watch and share widely.

Unless, of course, you enjoy having blinkers pulled over your eyes and wool stuffed into your ears by liars.

Your choice. But bear in mind that you have until Thursday to decide whether to change the UK for the better, or leave it to get worse.

Labour has surged in the opinion polls – but there’s only one poll that counts

This is great news – exuberantly delivered by ‘Chunky’ Mark McGowan:

Here’s the evidence:

Great news, right?

Well, yes – because the pollster is a right-wing organisation that plays down the Labour vote as much as possible. The number of people actually coming out for Labour is probably much higher.

But there’s only one poll that counts – and it will be held between 7am and 10pm on Thursday, December 12.

Don’t be lulled into thinking that Labour is catching up, so you don’t have to vote. That’s a sure route to another Conservative government.

Don’t expect anybody else to do the right thing for you.

Vote Labour on Thursday if you want a Labour government.

As Mr McGowan says:

“Vote as if you life depends on it” – because it probably will.

Former Tory PM calls on voters to ABANDON Conservatives over Brexit ‘fiction’

Don’t vote Tory: John Major

Former Prime Minister Sir John Major has sensationally called on the public to vote AGAINST the Tories because Boris Johnson’s Brexit is “the worst foreign policy decision in my lifetime”.

Sir John, who led the Conservative Party between 1990 and 1997, is backing rebel candidates standing against Boris Johnson loyalists in a hammer blow for the PM.

He has endorsed three former ministers, who were expelled by Mr Johnson in September, stating: “Let me make one thing absolutely clear: none of them has left the Conservative Party, the Conservative Party has left them.

As reported in the Mirror, he said: “Without such talent on its benches, Parliament will be the poorer, which is why – if I were resident in any one of their constituencies – they would have my vote.”

In a pre-recorded speech ahead of the Stop the Brexit Landslide rally – organised by Final Say campaigners – Sir John [said] old “tribal loyalties” are being loosened by Brexit.

He described Brexit as “the worst foreign policy decision in my lifetime”, saying: “It will affect nearly every single aspect of our lives for many decades to come.

“It will make our country poorer and weaker. It will hurt most those who have least.

“Never have the stakes been higher, especially for the young. Brexit may even break up our historic United Kingdom.

When the nation voted on Brexit they did so on a diet of fiction and undeliverable promises.

“As the facts become known, it is extraordinary that a new vote is denied: extraordinary, and undemocratic.”

Diplomat’s searing resignation over Brexit confirms Corbyn’s claims about Johnson’s lies

Alexandra Hall Hall: She’s probably smiling because she doesn’t have to lie for Boris Johnson any more.

It’s couched in diplomatic language, but when a diplomat quits over “misleading” arguments and a “reluctance to address honestly” Brexit, you know she’s calling Boris Johnson a liar.

Alexandra Hall Hall’s unequivocal statement that she can no longer “peddle half-truths”, coinciding so closely with Jeremy Corbyn’s release of Treasury documents showing that Mr Johnson has misled the UK on the substance of his Brexit deal, can only confirm it.

Revealed as a liar, his Brexit deal simply the latest permutation of the old story about the “Emperor’s new clothes”, Mr Johnson is left with no options.

Naked and shamed, he can only hope that enough of the electorate are so nauseated at the thought of the Brexit drama dragging on that they’ll support him simply in the belief that he’ll make it go away.

He won’t, of course. He can’t.

And what if someone reminds the public that the fuss over the UK’s membership of the EU only happened because a previous Tory prime minister, in a fit of pride, thought it would heal divisions in his own party; it never had anything to do with any economic or social benefit to the UK.

What a cesspit David Cameron dragged us into! And how humiliating if we allow Boris Johnson to drown us in it.

A senior British diplomat in the US has quit with a blast at the UK government over Brexit, saying she could no longer “peddle half-truths” on behalf of political leaders she did not “trust.”

Alexandra Hall Hall, the lead envoy for Brexit in the British Embassy in Washington, said that she had become increasingly dismayed by the demands placed on the British civil service to deliver messages on Brexit which were not “fully honest.”

“I have been increasingly dismayed by the way in which our political leaders have tried to deliver Brexit, with reluctance to address honestly, even with our own citizens, the challenges and trade-offs which Brexit involves; the use of misleading or disingenuous arguments about the implications of the various options before us; and some behaviour towards our institutions, which, were it happening in another country, we would almost certainly as diplomats have received instructions to register our concern,” she wrote in her letter, dated December 3.

“It makes our job to promote democracy and the rule of law that much harder, if we are not seen to be upholding these core values at home.”
