The #UK’s going to Hell but at least we can #laugh about it

He’s a clown: but many people fear clowns…

I don’t know about you, but This Writer is seeing a noticeable increase in humorous posts about current political affairs.

I guess people have realised that they can’t do anything about all the horrible things the Tories are doing that they might as well try to have a few kicks while they can.

So, after Dominic Raab demonstrated his stupidity on live TV by telling us the police don’t investigate crimes retrospectively, and then admitted that a party had taken place at Downing Street during lockdown, in breach of all the rules…

…a sub-editor at the Star came up with this:

Nice one!

On another tack, a Twitter user pointed out a curious correspondence between the Tory attitude to the Downing Street party and Labour’s attitude to putting its own house in order:

Meanwhile, Boris Johnson joined a police drugs raid to publicise his clampdown on anybody who does drugs but isn’t in the government:

… and everybody had a field day:

Of course the sharpest comments are those that aren’t humorous – just true:

The attack on #courts and #democracy was a #Tory #manifesto promise. Didn’t you know?

RIP democracy: this image of Boris Johnson in a Hitler moustache was stuck to the door of the Conservative office in Beverley, near Hull, earlier this year.

This is nothing new:

Funny how The Times has only just learned of the Johnson government’s plan to overrule court rulings, in December 2021, when it was in the Conservative manifesto for the December 2019 general election almost two years ago!

Yes, Boris Johnson backpedalled for a little while, but that’s a classic Tory tactic; they lure you into a false feeling that everything’s going to be all right and then they stab you in the back.

If it’s good enough for them when they’re electing leaders, then they’re not going to see any reason not to do it to you. Right?

It is an offence against democracy and a step into elected dictatorship – but you knew that already because This Site told you.

So did the nearly 14 million people who voted for it. Right?

Wrong?

They didn’t know?

They just voted Tory because they wanted to get out of the European Union so badly they didn’t care what else happened over the next five years?

Oh, wow. And – hey! – The Times could have told them all about it back in 2019 but didn’t?

That’s a real shame.

It’s also the reason people are told, time and time again in their lives, to RTFM.

In this case, it means Read The F-ing Manifesto!

Too late now.

Because this is one manifesto promise that Boris Johnson is hell-bent on keeping.

#PritiPatel #bullying: can anyone explain the logic of #HighCourt ruling against union’s legal challenge?

Priti Patel and Boris Johnson. You can imagine what he’s saying to her right now: “Keep smiling because I think we’ve got away with it!”

There’s something about this judgement that isn’t quite right.

The High Court has rejected a legal challenge by civil service union the FDA against Boris Johnson’s ruling that Priti Patel’s bullying of civil servants did not break the Ministerial Code.

Lord Justice Lewis, sitting with Mrs Justice Steyn, said that Johnson had not “misdirected himself” (misinterpreted the meaning of the Ministerial Code) when coming to his decision.

The judge said: “The question for this court is whether the prime minister proceeded on the basis that conduct would not fall within the description of bullying within paragraph 1.2 of the ministerial code if the person concerned was unaware of, or did not intend, the harm or offence caused.

“Reading the statement (made by Johnson) as a whole, and in context, we do not consider that the prime minister misdirected himself in that way.”

So the question was whether Patel could be said to have bullied someone if she was unaware of – or said she was unaware of – the harm or offence she caused.

Paragraph 1.2 of the Ministerial Code states: “Ministers should be professional in all their dealings and treat all those with whom they come into contact with consideration and respect. Working relationships, including with civil servants, ministerial and parliamentary colleagues and parliamentary staff should be proper and appropriate.”

It makes no mention of whether a minister’s intentions have any bearing on whether their behaviour may breach the code; therefore Patel’s intentions were irrelevant.

This is consistent with then-advisor on ministerial standards, Sir Alex Allan’s, advice at the time: “Her approach on occasions has amounted to behaviour that can be described as bullying in terms of the impact felt by individuals. To that extent, her behaviour has been in breach of the ministerial code, even if unintentionally.”

But Johnson’s ruling relied entirely on Patel’s intentions. He said Patel was “unaware” of the impact she had and he was “reassured” she was “sorry for inadvertently upsetting those with whom she was working”.

In response, Sir Alex immediately resigned his advisory role. He was not prepared to continue working for Johnson in the knowledge that the prime minister was willing to allow breaches of the Code in such a way.

And we see now that the High Court has ruled in favour of Johnson, saying he did not misdirect himself into thinking that her conduct did not fall under the description of bullying if Patel had been unaware that it was having that effect – which is odd, because his statement clearly shows that this is exactly what he said.

So the judges’ decision is wrong, it seems.

Also – strangely – the decision does not seem to take account of the main thrust of the defence put forward by Johnson’s lawyers, which was that the Ministerial Code is a “political document”, “does not create or impose any legal duties on ministers or the prime minister”, is “not required by law” and its contents “not regulated by law”.

The court’s decision shows that it does, it is, and it is – and the FDA union seems well pleased with that result, saying the high court had confirmed the prohibition on bullying, discrimination and harassment in the ministerial code is justiciable in the courts.

This Writer doesn’t see how that helps, if the High Court is just going to rubber-stamp Johnson’s decisions, no matter how illogical they are.

Dave Penman, the union’s general secretary, said the court had determined that “the prime minister did not acquit the home secretary of bullying” and he “did not reject the findings of Sir Alex Allan that her conduct amounted to bullying”.

If that were true, then wouldn’t the court have said that the Ministerial Code was indeed breached and Patel should resign? Bullying is, by definition, unprofessional, improper and inappropriate.

Still, if nothing else it means This Site and others can call her a bully with impunity.

Will #BorisJohnson’s crackdown on #drugs and the people who’ve tried them include himself?

Boris Johnson: he says he only took cocaine once.

Former cocaine user Boris Johnson reckons he’s going to crack down on drug use in the UK with measures affecting pushers and victims alike.

These include taking passports away from people who have tried – for example – cocaine, so people are asking the obvious questions:

For those who can’t read image files, he once told Piers Morgan he had taken cocaine aged 19 at Oxford but it didn’t affect him – and on Have I Got News For You, he expanded on this by saying he sneezed and the substance did not go up his nose: “I may have been doing icing sugar.”

Well, we don’t know that for sure, do we?

He told The Sun on Sunday: “Most of the crime driven by drugs is generated by 300,000 heroin and crack cocaine users — tragic people who have lost their way in life.”

That’s certainly true of Johnson himself, no matter how much of the drug he has take – or says he has.

He also said: “The country is ­littered with victims of what’s happened. We are going to look at new ways of penalising them.

“Things that will actually interfere with their lives so we will look at taking away passports and driving licences.”

So he’ll be penalising the victims of drug pushers? What a nasty man. Still, if he includes himself – by confiscating his own passport, perhaps – then at least we won’t be able to say he’s being unfair.

But we know – don’t we? – that this will be another instance of “one rule for us; a different rule for him”.

He can’t even get the story straight on the amount of harm drug use has caused.

He said: “I came in on a pledge to cut crime and it has come down quite a long way.”

Sorry – what?

Drug deaths in England and Wales are at their highest level since records began in 1993, with 4,561 people dying last year!

Perhaps Johnson had forgotten that, because of whatever substance was addling his mind during his Sun interview.

I wonder if the Downing Street Christmas parties have started yet?

Lessons weren’t learned from #BabyP and they won’t be learned after #ArthurLabinjoHughes either

Arthur Labinjo-Hughes: if lesson’s had really been learned from the death of Peter Connelly – Baby P, Arthur would be alive today.

Did you hear Boris Johnson insincerely telling the nation, “What we’ve got to make sure now is that we learn the lessons” from the death of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes?

It’s what they always say after a tragedy like this. And they never honour the pledge.

We know this because of Baby P.

Remember Peter Connelly? His death happened in strikingly similar circumstances to that of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes.

He died after suffering more than 50 injuries inflicted by his mother, her partner and his brother over an eight-month period during which he had been repeatedly seen by children’s services officers from his local council and by NHS health professionals.

After the killers were convicted, then-children’s minister Tim Loughton said children were safer than before: “It would be in everyone’s interest – the families and the professionals involved – if we can learn lessons, find closure and move on.”

Arthur Labinjo-Hughes suffered multiple injuries inflicted by his father and his partner over a period of months during which he also had been visited by social services officers from his local council.

And now Boris Johnson rocks up to say we all need to “learn the lessons”:

Either it isn’t going to happen or it isn’t going to make any difference.

Baby P’s death triggered three inquiries and a nationwide review of social services care, all of which provided lengthy and detailed reports on how children could be better safeguarded.

But here we are, 14 years later – a long enough period of time for those changes to become ingrained into these services – and a child has died for almost exactly the same reasons as Baby P.

Nothing was learned at all.

Johnson has ordered an inquiry from which nothing will be learned at all.

Just think for a moment about what former Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield had to say about it: “For anyone who looks at the serious case reviews, or hears about them, that come after a child’s death, you will see the same things coming up time and time again – missed opportunities, lack of co-ordination, lack of data-sharing – the things that professionals need to have at hand to be able to protect these children, which still aren’t in place.”

Why aren’t they in place?

This Writer has a feeling there’s a very simple answer: funding cuts.

The year after the last report on Baby P was published, the Conservatives came into government in coalition with the Liberal Democrats – and local authority budgets were slashed to the bone.

It must be extremely difficult for any social services department to integrate complicated new procedures into its staff when bosses don’t know how many staff members they’re likely to have from one year to the next, or personnel quit because they can’t make ends meet, or they are deprived of the tools they need to do the job – or because of other reasons This Writer is unlikely to know.

So I reckon Johnson must have been happy he was speaking behind a mask, so none of us could see his forked tongue.

#BorisJohnson #sleaze #scandal of the day: another MP with a second job

Coward: Boris Johnson hid in a fridge once to evade difficult questions.

Boris Johnson is facing tricky questions again:

Apparently Winchester MP Stephen Brine repeatedly claimed on the public Register of Members’ Interests that he’d been given the green-light to take a £1,600-a-month job with Sigma Pharmaceuticals by a Parliamentary watchdog, just months after quitting as a Public Health minister in March 2019.

This was not true, it seems. And the company was given a Covid-19 contract worth £100,000 subsequently. Did Brine act as a lobbyist? Both he and the firm deny it. But they would, wouldn’t they?

And with corruption in government at an all-time high, it seems unlikely that we’ll get the facts, whether they’re innocent or not.

#BorisJohnson’s #Covid19 #Christmas booze-up: why won’t #CressidaDick investigate?

His most infamous comment: let’s not forget that Johnson is believed to have said “Let the bodies pile high in their thousands” months before the alleged Christmas party at Downing Street on December 18, 2020. They did: on the day of the party alone, 489 people died with Covid-19.

She doesn’t have to – she already has the names of everybody who attended and may start prosecutions whenever she wants. She just doesn’t want to.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

We’re all aware of the situation, I hope: it emerged a few days ago that Boris Johnson hosted a huge Christmas Party at 10 Downing Street, with attendees packed together “cheek by jowl”, while the rest of London was on Tier 3 lockdown and on a day when 489 people died from Covid-19.

There is a question over why it took so long for this to come out; were political correspondents like the BBC’s Laura Kuennsberg and ITV’s Robert Peston invited? If so, did they go? If so, is that the reason they didn’t report the breach of Covid regulations – that they were as guilty as everybody else? If so (again), then they should not be in the jobs they have if they’re so quick to lay themselves open to compromising situations so easily.

Downing Street has said that all the rules in force at the time were observed, but this cannot be true; if there was any kind of party involving many people, then the rules were broken.

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick – now there’s a woman who has compromised herself thoroughly for the Tory government! – initially refused to investigate the alleged incident, saying she had not received a complaint about it.

Judging from the volume of entries in This Writer’s Twitter feed, that situation has now been rectified. Here’s just one example:

So, it seems, she has changed her tune and is now saying that the police don’t investigate crimes retrospectively.

Sorry, what?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but police can only ever investigate crimes retrospectively! They have to have been committed before any detection work can happen at all. We don’t have any Minority Report-style ‘pre-crime’ units (and that’s just as well because the film suggested that it wouldn’t work if we did)!

So it’s a nonsense excuse.

Furthermore, it has been pointed out that Downing Street is under police guard 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year round. Everybody entering has to be signed in; everybody leaving has to be signed out.

So the police already have a list of everybody who attended the alleged party on December 18, 2020 – or should have.

Perhaps they destroyed it. That would be embarrassing because there are possible situations in which such lists may be required in the name of national security.

Perhaps Ms Dick’s name is on it. That would also be embarrassing.

In any event, officers on duty would have seen the people going in, and they must have seen the state of them by the time those people left. If all else fails, those officers could be interviewed.

What has become abundantly clear, though, is that nobody with the ability to do it has even the slightest interest in investigating the allegation that a boozy party happened in Downing Street during lockdown, meaning the prime minister of the UK broke his own rules.

That fact alone makes Johnson look as guilty as a puppy sitting next to a pile of poo.

It also indicates that we have people in positions of authority whose only interest is in abusing those positions for their own personal gratification – and in protecting each other from the consequences if those abuses are discovered.

It’s bitterly offensive to all the families whose loved ones died alone that day because Johnson’s rules for the rest of us required family members to be distanced from their relatives who had contracted the virus.

It would be foolish of us to believe that Boris Johnson, Cressida Dick, or anybody who attended that alleged party, cares about their loss in any way at all.

This French critique of #BorisJohnson is bitingly accurate (How Others See Us) [VIDEO]

The clown head of Britain: this is probably how Emmanuel Macron and all the other European national leaders rate Boris Johnson.

Isn’t it strange that political commentators in Europe can sum up Boris Johnson perfectly in around two minutes, while the UK’s own media haven’t managed it in something like 20 years?

You can’t deny that Marion van Renterghem makes her points very well (they’re subtitled for those of us whose French isn’t quite up to par):

No, Tories: Downing Street Christmas parties ARE important to us. They’re about your HYPOCRISY

This is a terrible image with which to illustrate this story, as Johnson’s glass was only filled with water (we’re told), it’s not in Downing Street, and the parties there were allegedly packed full of people. But it’s the only one I have in which he’s got a drink in his hand.

The UK’s Tory government has had a busy few days trying to live down its latest scandals:

I’ll cover the latest Hancock scandal in another article. As for the Downing Street parties:

According to the Mirror, Boris Johnson hosted a series of parties at Downing Street during November and December 2020, where attendees were packed “cheek by jowl” with each other in direct defiance of Johnson’s own Covid-19 social distancing rules – rules that the rest of us were under legal obligation to obey.

While London was under Tier 3 restrictions, Tories knocked back bucketloads of wine, played party games and received presents from their Secret Santa.

Around “40 or 50” people were said to have been crammed “cheek by jowl” into a medium-sized room in Number 10 for each of the two events.

“It was a Covid nightmare,” one source claimed.

[And a source] even suggested there were “always parties” in the flat Mr Johnson shares with wife, adding: “Carrie’s addicted to them”.

The party on December 18 last year took place on a day when 489 people died with Covid-19.

They were isolated from their families, meaning hundreds of people were prohibited from saying a last goodbye to their loved ones while Tories raved it up “cheek by jowl” in Downing Street.

Take a look at the way some of the Tories have been trying to sideline the issue:

They’re all completely wrong about whether the public are interested. Whether it’s an outright lie or they’ve been misled is another matter. Start typing an internet search on Downing Street and you won’t have to go through many letters before “Downing Street Christmas Party” is displayed.

lot of people have been looking for information on this.

One question that needs to be answered is: where where the political reporters from the mainstream media when these parties were taking place? Did they attend? And if so, did they fail to report on this scandalously hypocritical breach of Covid-19 regulations because they were too hungover afterwards, or for some other reason?

Inquiring minds want to know. How sad that the journalists in question should be among the most inquiring minds in the whole of the UK, and they simply haven’t bothered to mention this for almost a year.

And now Boris Johnson is telling us to go ahead with our own Christmas parties this year, in spite of the threat his advisors reckon is posed by the Omicron variant; in spite of the fact that nearly 54,000 people in the UK were found to be infected with Covid-19 on December2; and in spite of the fact that the UK has the highest infection and death rate of any western European nation.

There’s also the fact that Johnson didn’t bother cancelling everybody else’s Christmas until the day after he had his big Downing Street blowout – December 19 last year. We simply can’t trust him to stick to his word – especially as we can’t trust his government to protect us from the virus.

Finally, it seems there’s no point getting too het up about the prime minister having a huge piss-up in Downing Street while hundreds of our loved ones were dying alone, because the chief of London’s police has already announced that she won’t be investigating the allegations:

This Site has asserted many times that Dick is not fit to be Metropolitan Police Commissioner. Personally, I think she is too corrupt to be a serving police officer of any kind at all.

Her announcement is symptomatic of the whole corrupt set-up in Westminster now.

It really is one rule for them and another for us, enforced by their minions in the police.

#BorisJohnson lies again over #BordersBill after being asked ‘When is he coming for me?’

Imran Hussein was right to ask when Boris Johnson was planning to strip him of his UK citizenship and deport him, under new powers his government intends to give itself.

The Nationality and Borders Bill, if enacted into law, will allow Home Secretary Priti Patel to strip anybody in the UK of their UK nationality, at any time, just because she feels like it.

Challenged on it in Prime Minister’s Questions, Johnson had the bare-faced cheek to scream that the Bill will only target people traffickers preying on refugees who have to use illegal means to try to reach the UK.

But this is simply untrue and he knows it; therefore it is another Johnson lie.

If the citizenship clause in the Bill was specifically and only referring to people traffickers, it would say so, explicitly. It does not.

Therefore we may safely assume that it will be used to strip innocent UK citizens of their nationality, arbitrarily and unjustly, no matter how many promises Johnson makes that it won’t.

What’s that saying again? It’s just been coined: “A Boris Johnson promise is just a lie that hasn’t happened yet.”
