Sunak refuses to apologise for turmoil caused by Truss

Rishi Sunak has refused to apologise for the economic turmoil Liz Truss’s government caused.

Speaking in Bali at the G20 summit, refused to apologise six times for the decisions his forerunner made, which caused severe financial turbulence that continues at the time of writing.

But he did acknowledge that “mistakes were made,” and said: “What I want to do now is fix them.”

Steve Baker calls for Guru-Murthy sacking after accepting apology. What a c… (STRONG LANGUAGE)

Steve Baker: what a- well, I think the description is now best described as rhyming slang for his Tory colleague Jeremy Hunt.

Tory MP Steve Baker has said he hopes Channel 4 sacks journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy after telling him he “appreciates” an apology for being called something very rude, live on air.

The incident occurred after what Guru-Murthy called a “very robust” interview on events in Westminster yesterday.

Suella Braverman resigned as home secretary, chief whip Wendy Morton and her deputy Craig Whittaker reportedly threatened to quit, and it was alleged that Tory MPs were bullied into supporting the government in a vote on fracking that was seen as a mark of confidence in Liz Truss’s government.

After the interview concluded, this happened:

Obviously it shouldn’t have but it did – and Guru-Murthy later reported in a tweet that he had “reached out” to Baker to apologise.

Baker then accepted the apology: “I appreciate you apologising. Thank you,” he wrote.

But Baker then told John Pienaar on Times Radio that he hoped Channel 4 would sack Guru-Murthy.

He said: “If it’s in breach of his code of conduct, I do hope they sack him – it would be a service to the public.”

Accepting an apology for a transgression and then demanding further action over it is exactly the behaviour of the kind of person Guru-Murthy had described, in his description of the MP.

So there it is. Steve Baker – what a … “Jeremy Hunt”.

Nadhim Zahawi apologises for chaos after Tory fiscal event

It took him a while but he got to it in the end.

Nadhim Zahawi, challenged to apologise for the economic chaos his Conservative colleagues Kwasi Kwarteng and Liz Truss caused with their cack-handed ‘fiscal event’, tried everything he could to avoid saying a simple word: “Sorry.”

He failed.

He tried to say that prime minister Liz Truss had retracted her plan to end the top, 45p, tax rate.

He tried to say – to hilarity from the BBC Question Time audience – that Vladimir Putin would benefit from the UK being divided (as if that was any kind of moral reason to support a wrong decision by his bosses).

But in the end, he had to accept the inevitable:

It isn’t an apology from Truss or Kwarteng.

But is that yet to come?

Ignorant Johnson fails to apologise after Nazanin tells him she lived in ‘shadow of his words’

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: when she explained to Boris Johnson how his ill-chosen and false comments in 2017 affected her experience of jail in Iran, he affected shock – and refused to apologise.

Boris Johnson’s ignorance and hubris really do know no bounds.

Faced with first-hand information about the effect his personal stupidity had on a woman who had been falsely jailed in Iran, he affected shock – not that he had caused such harm, it seems, but that he was being criticised.

And he failed to apologise.

Johnson had been accused of lengthening her ordeal when, as foreign secretary in 2017, he wrongly claimed she had been training journalists at the time of her arrest in 2016.

Four days after Johnson’s damaging remarks as foreign secretary, she was summoned before an unscheduled court hearing, where his comments were cited as proof that she was engaged in “propaganda against the regime”.

The incident took place at a meeting between Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, together with her husband Richard and daughter Gabriella, and Boris Johnson in Downing Street on Friday (May 13):

Mr Ratcliffe said his wife challenged the Prime Minister on “why did it take so long” to secure her release.

She also told him the “massive impact” his comments had on her, even saying the Iranian authorities brought Mr Johnson’s words up during interrogation shortly before her release.

Asked if the Prime Minister apologised, Mr Ratcliffe responded: “Not specifically.”

Nazanin’s MP, Tulip Siddiq, was also at the meeting:

“I was really proud of Nazanin. She was sitting next to the Prime Minister, and she told him very clearly and categorically that his words had had a big impact on her and that she had lived in the shadow of his words for the best part of four-and-a-half years,” Ms Siddiq said.

“I have to say the Prime Minister looked quite shocked, I think, when she said that, but I was really proud she did say that because… there was a time when the words had a big impact.”

Ms Siddiq [said] that her constituent “didn’t mince words” with the Prime Minister, saying his comments had “haunted her for four-and-a-half years”.

The family urged Johnson to give evidence to the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee inquiry into the Government’s handling of the case. He said he would look at it, which probably means no.

They also pressed him to help free the other Iranian dual nationals still being held in detention.

Nobody seemed to touch on the alleged reason Nazanin was freed – that the UK had paid more than £400 million owed to Iran for the failed sale of military equipment back in the 1970s.

If that was in fact the case, then Johnson will not be able to repeat it. This Writer fears that his answer to the second request will also, therefore, be no.

So ends another contemptible contribution to the failures of the UK’s worst-ever leadership failure.

Apology for #KeirStarmer over #JimmySavile slur? Where’s HIS apology to #JeremyCorbyn?

Johnson and Starmer: Johnson’s jibe about Jimmy Savile was wrong – but Starmer would be a hypocrite to demand an apology while he continues to make false accusations against Jeremy Corbyn.

Boris Johnson was under pressure today to apologise to Keir Starmer for claiming that the Labour leader refused to prosecute child abuser Jimmy Savile when he was Director of Public Prosecutions.

It would be absolutely right for Johnson to do so; there is no evidence that Starmer had anything to do with that wrong decision, as those who were present at the time acknowledge:

However, some are saying it is poetic justice that Starmer is getting some of his own medicine after he has spent more than a year lying about former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

They say – rightly, in This Writer’s opinion – that Starmer should only receive any apology from Johnson after he has apologised for the years of false accusations of anti-Semitism and support for terrorism that have been wrongly heaped on Mr Corbyn by himself and others within Labour.

It would be hypocrisy for him – and his supporters – to demand amends for an offence that they themselves merrily continue to commit against someone else.

Mother of murdered sisters calls on Cressida Dick to clear the rot from the Met. Fat chance!

Cressida Dick: as Metropolitan Police Commissioner, she seems to spend all her time apologising for the crimes committed by her staff and none clearing out the villains who cause the problems in the first place.

How sad that, even in such a grubby case as this, Cressida Dick thinks her first job as Metropolitan Police commissioner is to protect the brand.

It’s too late for that!

In the case of murdered sisters Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry, not only did the Met not bother to look for the missing pair, but they actually left finding these ladies’ bodies to their family.

Then Met officers compounded the injury. Charged with one job – to guard the bodies and protect the integrity of the murder scene, PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, and PC Jamie Lewis, 33, took photographs of the bodies.

Jaffer took four photographs and Lewis superimposed his own face onto a picture with the victims in the background.

And as if this act of desecration wasn’t bad enough, they then shared the images to their colleagues via a WhatsApp group.

The Independent Office of Police Conduct, investigating, found Lewis “used degrading and sexist language to describe the victims at the crime scene he was protecting”.

Both officers have admitted misconduct in public office and have been told to expect prison sentences for what they did.

Dick has apologised to the mother of the deceased women, Mina Smallman.

However:

It is too late for apologies.

But it is pointless to ask Cressida Dick to stop the rot.

Her job is to protect the rot and distract attention away from it.

Tory Kawczynski apologises for drunken bullying – but this is not his first offence. Shouldn’t he resign?

Why is Daniel Kawczynski being allowed to get off with an apology after he drunkenly bullied civil servants over an IT issue?

He should be facing investigation with a view to demanding his resignation from Parliament. Right?

It’s not even his first bullying offence.

Kawczynski was forced to apologise, according to the BBC, after IT issues made it impossible for him to take part in discussions of a Parliamentary committee.

The independent report into his conduct said Mr Kawczynski had “repeatedly” contacted one of the complainants through the day on his personal mobile, and was “repeatedly aggressive, rude and impatient”.

As the day went on, it became clear he had consumed alcohol, it added.

Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards Kathryn Stone said Mr Kawczynski had also made “critical and untruthful comments” on a WhatsApp group shared with other committee members.

He got drunk, bullied one of the civil servants who had tried to help him, and lied about both of them to his colleagues.

And the only reason he apologised was because a second panel set up to determine what punishment he should accept told him to do so, after he had appealed against the (identical) decision of the first.

This is the bully who, in 2018, threatened legal action against an editor of the BBC’s Newsnight, Ian Katz, who had suggested that his defence of Saudi Arabia’s war of annihilation in Yemen might be linked to the size of his expenses budget whenever he took trips to that country.

In March 2020, tweeted support for his fellow Tory bully, Home Secretary Priti Patel, who was later found guilty of bullying civil servants by a Cabinet Office inquiry but went unpunished because Boris Johnson refused to accept the decision.

Perhaps he thought that, if she could get away with it, he could?

He is the entitled Tory bully who wanted to override the will of the Welsh people – and abolish the Welsh Assembly and its government – so he could visit the beach.

Wales has different Covid-19-related restrictions and at the time – May 2020 – these included a ban on people crossing the border from England.

The incident marked Kawczynski out as a fool because his nearest beach isn’t in Wales – it’s in the Wirral.

Then in December of 2020, he refused to make another Newsnight appearance for fear of “bullying” behaviour by presenter Emily Maitlis.

What a double-standard. He was happy to support the bully Priti Patel but changed his tune sharply when facing the prospect of being bullied himself.

And now this. And I haven’t even mentioned his other offences and alleged indiscretions.

Just to quote one example, in February 2020, he received a formal warning and reprimand from the Conservative Party – but did not have the whip withdrawn – after he shared a platform with right-wing populist politicians such as Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán and the former deputy prime minister of Italy Matteo Salvini.

He’s a serial offender. And his excuse for the latest was that he was drunk?

I should bleedin’ cocoa!

Anti-left wing propaganda paper forced to pay damages and apologise to Marc Wadsworth

Marc Wadsworth.

If anybody reading this doesn’t understand the significance: Marc Wadsworth is a left-wing campaigner who Labour MP Ruth Smeeth had ejected from the party after she made a false accusation of anti-Semitism against him.

I explained what happened in a 2016 article on This Site:

Smeeth had [Wadsworth] kicked out of the Labour Party after an incident at the launch of Shami Chakrabarti’s report into alleged anti-Semitism in the Labour party on June 30.

Telegraph reporter had handed her a leaflet Marc Wadsworth had been distributing, allegedly (I haven’t seen it) accusing Labour MPs who had rebelled against Mr Corbyn of treachery, and asked her (we’re told) for a comment.

Mr Wadsworth’s comment was: “I saw that the Telegraph handed a copy of a press release to Ruth Smeeth MP so you can see who is working hand in hand. If you look around this room, how many African Caribbean and Asian people are there? We need to get our house in order.”

He is a person of colour himself and says he had no idea Ms Smeeth is Jewish. But she had him booted from the party for anti-Semitism.

Here‘s some video evidence.

A report on that incident by the Jewish Chronicle prompted Wadsworth to take a complaint to newspaper regulator IPSO, who upheld it.

The paper had claimed that Wadsworth’s “verbal abuse” of  a Jewish MP, during the launch event of a report into “Jew-hatred in labour” had caused outrage among moderate party members and the Jewish community.

Under investigation by IPSO, the paper changed its reference to abuse, so that the article now states that he “challenged” Smeeth.

But that hasn’t stopped the Jewish Chronicle from publishing false information about this man. According to its own standards, he would be well within his rights to bring an action against it for racism.

This time, the paper’s correction reads as follows:

We reported that Marc Wadsworth had spoken at the launch event for the ‘Labour in Exile Network’ (LIEN), a group that aimed to discover the addresses of Jewish Labour activists to “take care” of them, and that he was thereby complicit in a conspiracy to intimidate, threaten or harass Jewish activists into silence. We also suggested that there were reasonable grounds to suspect that such activities were criminal. Our story was wrong. Mr Wadsworth did not speak or even attend the online event. Mr Wadsworth is not a member of LIEN and we accept that he has not been involved in any of the group’s activities. We apologise to Mr Wadsworth for our error and have agreed to pay damages to him.

How does a reporter make a mistake like that? To say, not only that somebody was at an event when he wasn’t, but that he had taken an active role?

If it’s a case of “all black people look the same” then it is time for a serious investigation – not only into this propaganda sheet’s political bias, but into racism as well.

McCluskey targeted again: he’s right to apologise – but not for anti-Semitism

Len McCluskey: his words were not anti-Semitic.

Unite union leader Len McCluskey has rightly apologised to Peter Mandelson for comments in a BBC Newsnight report – but claims that his words were anti-Semitic are wholly wrong.

Responding to disparaging comments from Mandelson about the Jeremy Corbyn era of the Labour Party, McCluskey had said that he should go away and “count his gold”.

As this had nothing to do with the matters under discussion – and seems intended as an insult – it is right that McCluskey has issued an apology:

Sadly some people have chosen to interpret McCluskey’s words as an anti-Semitic trope:

There’s just one problem with that interpretation – and it’s a big one:

Peter Mandelson is not Jewish.

Jewishness is handed down by female family members and Mandelson’s mother was a gentile. He isn’t Jewish.

And consider this: isn’t it strange that one person with Jewish ancestors is said to be Jewish (for the purpose of attacking someone else), while another person with Jewish ancestors was told repeatedly that she was not (for the purpose of attacking her), even though she did self-identify as such?

To me, this seems just another opportunistic lie, made to attack a person on the left wing of UK politics.

Type “McCluskey” into the search box on Twitter and you’ll be able to make a list of the names and handles of a large number of fellow travellers who support this lie. Some of them are well-known so it is worth making that list.

And, as there is (clearly) still a strong campaign to disparage and discredit people on the left wing of politics, let’s see if the same names crop up to support the next lie.

Cowardly Keir pays huge damages to so-called anti-Semitism whistleblowers – rather than win in court

Keir the clueless: he thinks he’s putting Jeremy Corbyn and the former Labour leadership in an impossible position; in fact, all he’s doing is boxing himself in.

It should come as no surprise that new New Labour leader Keir Starmer would rather pay hundreds of thousands of pounds to so-called anti-Semitism whistleblowers than contest their claims in court – and perhaps win.

We know that the party had received advice that it had a strong defence against the claims by a group who spoke out in last year’s Panorama documentary, Is Labour Antisemitic?

Here’s former leader Jeremy Corbyn saying as much:

Former Labour leader Mr Corbyn said the legal settlement “risks giving credibility to misleading and inaccurate allegations about action taken to tackle anti-Semitism in the Labour Party in recent years”.

He said it was a “political decision, not a legal one”.

“Our legal advice was that the party had a strong defence, and the evidence in the leaked Labour report that is now the subject of an NEC inquiry led by Martin Forde QC strengthened concerns about the role played by some of those who took part in the programme.”

He said Mr Forde must “fully address the evidence” in the “internal report” in order to “give our members the answers and justice they deserve”.

But Starmer instead decided to apologise unreservedly without contesting the claims, and to spaff hundreds of thousands of pounds of party members’ money up the wall paying off the so-called whistleblowers.

I say “so-called” because several of them are mentioned in the leaked Labour report on how the party handled anti-Semitism, which is the subject of an internal inquiry by Martin Forde QC, as mentioned by Mr Corbyn.

Will they be vindicated when that report is published? The result will show how much we can trust internal Labour reports, I expect.

One of the group was also involved in the allegations of anti-Semitism against This Writer, that led to my expulsion from the party under false pretences.

I am taking Labour to court – for breaching its contract with me in the way it handled the case – and the party will go on trial on October 2, in Bristol Civil Justice Centre. The hearing will begin at 10am.

What will Starmer’s grand gesture be worth when I win my case, I wonder?
