Public reaction to Johnson suggests widespread belief that Conservatives are a racist party

Racist and sexist: Let’s not forget that Boris Johnson has also been criticised for his attitude to women.

It is perfectly understandable that Tory MPs are supporting Boris Johnson’s bid to be prime minister because the Conservative Party is inherently racist – according to members of the public.

This Site’s articles after the SNP’s Commons leader, Ian Blackford, condemned Mr Johnson over racist remarks made in the past, stirred up a storm of responses on the social media – that speak for themselves:

“Tells us all we need to know that despite their pretence to care about racism they will happily elect a racist to try and keep them in power. Shameful-but totally in keeping with Tory values,” tweeted Peter Shearer.

“I believe the Tory Party’s base is as racist as those they vote into public office,” added ‘Cochis’.

‘Maryland’ suggested the reminder of the remarks would “potentially increase his vote. They are all in this together.”

Sue Lees: “Of course, they already knew he was a bigot and they condone it. No excuses, no justification, anyone who supports his sort of ideology are themselves complete arses.”

Louise Preston: “Of course they will still vote for him. Only interested in clinging into power and cabinet posts for themselves, couldn’t care less about anything else.”

‘Dot’ stated that Tories would vote for Mr Johnsons: “Everyday and twice on Sunday. Tory MPs are that craven.”

They may be voting for him twice today (Thursday, June 20), in fact.

“Yes they will,” agreed ‘AfterAtosAssessment. “It’s not an issue for those who vote the likes of Boris in over and over again.”

Michael Taylor: “Well after all the Tory party are and have always been racist.”

And according to Derrick Gaskin, “Most Conservative MPs are racist.

That assertion may well be demonstrated by the results of the last two votes by Tory MPs today.

But Conservative Party members in the constituencies are watching – and may fear being tarred with the same “racism” brush that has touched so many of their MPs.

A vote for Mr Johnson is now being seen as a vote for racism. Will the Tory grassroots vote for racism?

UPDATE: Boris Johnson had 157 votes in the fourth round of the Tory leadership election which means more than half of the Conservative MPs in Parliament are now openly supporting his racism.

Stewart surge knocks Raab out of Tory leader race – and threatens even Johnson

Sucker punch: Dominic Raab has been knocked out of the Conservative leadership race after Rory Stewart enjoyed a surge that doubled his support among MPs.

Surprise results from the second round of the Conservative Party leadership election show a big leap in support for Rory Stewart.

Mr Stewart, who scraped into the second round of the election in bottom place, has doubled his support, leapfrogging both Dominic Raab and Sajid Javid.

Mr Raab is out now; Mr Javid may be out next time.

Jeremy Hunt and Michael Gove will be disappointed; their support base has hardly changed since the first round.

Neither has Boris Johnson’s. And he will have been hoping to dodge having to clash with Mr Stewart in the BBC’s televised debate this evening (June 18).

Mr Stewart will want to ask the race leader whether he has been making contradictory promises to different groups in order to secure their support and Mr Johnson’s response to this and other questions may dictate the result of the contest.

But who will get Dominic Raab’s votes?

Tories vote in second round of Tory leadership contest, as candidates round on Rory Stewart

Not that confident: Rory Stewart.

The second round of the Conservative Party leadership election has begun, amid acrimony between some candidates and dark horse contender Rory Stewart.

Mr Stewart, who polled lowest among contenders who got through to the second round, has been quietly (and politely) amassing a surprising amount of momentum.

He came second in a survey of candidates by ConservativeHome, behind Boris Johnson.

He was considered the most impressive candidate in the Channel 4 televised debate on Sunday – in which Mr Johnson was “empty-chaired”.

And it seems he is thought to be the most “disruptive” candidate apart from Mr Johnson.

This could make him a danger to Mr Johnson’s own chances if they face each other in the BBC televised debate today (June 18). It seems likely that, if he does get through the current round of voting, he’ll be asking awkward questions about the promises Mr Johnson has been making.

It seems Mr Johnson has persuaded groups that have irreconcilable differences to back him and Mr Stewart is likely to ask whether this means he has been offering different things to different groups, telling them what they want to hear rather than what he intends to do.

Strangely, it seems the other candidates don’t want this to happen and would prefer Mr Johnson to have an easy time of it, as they are doing their level best to gang up on Mr Stewart.

Sajid Javid said Mr Stewart was effectively the candidate for remaining in the European Union: “I think [Stewart’s] effectively telling us that we should remain in the EU and there is a small constituency amongst my colleagues that would rather remain than leave, and I think that is part of the challenge that we have to deal with. And so I think up to a point Rory can attract that support but it’s not going to get us any further.”

It is possible the claim was prompted after Mr Stewart, who is MP for Penrith and the Border in Cumbria, commented that he was concerned about the effect of a no-deal Brexit on sheep farmers in his constituency. He has repudiated Mr Javid’s words:

There have also been rumours that Mr Stewart may have been a spy for MI6 when he worked as the British Representative to Montenegro in the wake of the Kosovo campaign in 1999. If he had been, he certainly would not admit it – and in any case, he said, the press would not be allowed to report it, according to the law.

Will this combined criticism cause Mr Stewart’s support to collapse? We’ll know very soon.

Asked how he was feeling when he cast his own vote, Mr Stewart admitted: “Not that confident.”

Possibly the most interesting comment on it has come from David Gauke, who supports the Stewart campaign. He tweeted:]

Is it really a boost for Boris Johnson that he’s now supported by leadership failure Leadsom?

Mutual support: Boris Johnson endorsed Andrea Leadsom’s bid to be Tory leader in 2016. Now she has been defeated again, she has come out for him.

Tory leadership favourite Boris Johnson must be just glowing after he won the support of Andrea Leadsom, the former rival who fell out of the contest at the first hurdle.

Ms Leadsom gave “two key reasons” for backing Mr Johnson:

“One is I think he is the best placed to get us out of the EU at the end of October. His view and mine are closely aligned there.

“Secondly, I do believe he is an election winner. He is someone who can bring the country and the party back together and take us forward in a positive way.

“And the third thing which is more nuanced really is that he and I share a scepticism about the HS2 project on the grounds of value for money.

“But he, at the same time, has a big commitment to improving infrastructure in the country to a pro-business agenda that will really get our ecomony to be motoring, which is essential in a post-Brexit world.”

The first thing we should notice about that is, Ms Leadsom can’t count – those are four reasons.

Next, let’s all remember that she is a hardline Brexiter who wants out and doesn’t care if it’s without a deal. So she’s making Mr Johnson the “no-deal” candidate (which may upset Dominic Raab’s plans somewhat).

Moving on, she’s saying she doesn’t care if he wrecks the Tory claim of “fiscal responsibility” (which is a myth in any case).

Finally, let’s look at what she didn’t say – but should have.

Mr Johnson endorsed Ms Leadsom’s candidacy in 2016, saying she had the “zip, drive and determination” to be prime minister. One might say it was only fair that she return the favour – once she was knocked out of the race again, of course.

The rest is summed up in a comment to This Site that I saw today:

“I fear that Boris could do something either spectacularly immoral, like cheating on a wife or girlfriend, or abandoning a partner and child, or helping a friend get a journalist beaten up, or making blatant racist remarks, or else do something spectacularly inept like wasting millions of taxpayer pounds on London water cannon that have to then be scrapped or planning a Garden Bridge that never got built, or denouncing Tory donors by saying “F**k business”, and he would still be the Tory voter’s favourite.”

And has he not done those things already?

Here’s Chris Patten, putting it a different way:

This is the kind of man Ms Leadsom thinks should be prime minister.

It seems clear that knocking her out of the leadership race early was a wise decision.

Do the Tories really want a massive coward like Boris Johnson as prime minister?

On his bike: Boris Johnson starts pedalling the instant anyone comes near him with a question about his Tory leadership campaign.

News coverage of the Conservative leadership race this morning (June 17) is amazing – TV news types seem desperate to crown Boris Johnson a month before the result is announced… and he’s a complete and utter coward.

Where was he at the televised leadership debate on Channel 4 yesterday? Empty-chaired because he was afraid to face the public.

Where is he at the media press conferences today? Nowhere to be seen because he’s “too busy doing debate prep to be able to attend”.

He is the absentee candidate.

Clearly he and his team are terrified that his campaign will fall apart the instant it comes into contact with anyone other than compliant Tory-supporting press bods in the BBC and elsewhere.

He is leaving it to other candidates – and ex-candidates – to state his case. And they’re doing it, for crying out loud!

Consider Michael Gove on the BBC’s Today programme, defending Mr Johnson’s appalling morals:

He continued: “I will happily defend Boris on this. There have been various attempts to to mount personal attacks against him and against some other candidates. I think that is wrong. Look, in the past, I have had my criticisms and differences with Boris. But I believe he is somebody who is capable of being prime minister.”

There was a slight barb, however: “But the key question is – who do we believe is the person with the best record in office, and the clearest vision for the future?”

That won’t be Mr Johnson, then! His vision for the future is to say whatever will get him into 10 Downing Street.

David Gauke, a soon-to-be-former cabinet minister if Mr Johnson wins, made this abundantly clear when he criticised the candidate’s latest unfunded spending promise, made in a column in the Daily Telegraph. After Mr Johnson promised to give every home in the UK access to superfast broadband by 2025, Mr Gauke tweeted:

He’s backing underdog candidate Rory Stewart – alongside a rising number of other Conservative MPs.

Despite failed candidate Matt Hancock having declared for Mr Johnson, it seems his supporters are splitting between the absentee favourite and Mr Stewart, who is making a strong showing at every public event he attends. The contrast could not be clearer.

But Mr Stewart will never be allowed to test his version of Conservative government, and perhaps we should be grateful for that.

The groundswell of support for Mr Johnson is a rush towards political suicide by the Conservative Party as a whole.

Conservatism has been an abject failure and the UK will be better-off without it, so perhaps the rest of us should welcome him too.

Comedian drops truth bomb on Tory policies for war veterans, disabled and elderly people

Emotional: Francesca Martinez.

If, like This Writer, you have switched off Question Time in disgust during the last few years of Conservative government and BBC/Establishment propagandism, then you missed a treat last night (June 13).

Answering a question on whether broken promises, gaffes and hanging from a zip-wire are the criteria for becoming the next UK prime minister – a clear reference to Boris Johnson’s commanding lead in the Conservative leadership election, she made the point that it doesn’t matter who gets in; every single Tory MP has the blood of more than 100,000 people on their hands:

I found it heartbreaking to watch this because like Ms Martinez (and many others), I have been campaigning for an end to Conservative persecution of the sick, disabled, elderly and vulnerable since their policies first started wrecking – and ending – lives.

Yet still this – let’s call it what it is – slaughter goes on. See this article for some further information on people who have died recently.

Boris Johnson won’t stop it. Jeremy Hunt won’t. Nor will Michael Gove. Raab? Javid? Hancock? Stewart? Don’t make me laugh.

They don’t care about it. Or if they do, it is This Writer’s sincere belief that they enjoy it. Otherwise they would have put a stop to it.

Ms Martinez said these deaths were caused by austerity. The Tories will say it was a financial necessity and that argument is a paper tiger because there is no financial necessity that justifies causing the death of a single person, let alone more than 100,000 – and remember, these are just the deaths we have been allowed to count.

The only answer is a general election and a Labour government. Once that is achieved, then the Conservative Party’s MPs must be brought to account for this ongoing atrocity.

If Esther McVey becomes PM, will most of the UK’s budget be devoted to making her look good?

Ugh: She might have spent nearly £10,000 of OUR cash in an attempt to prettify herself but it was clearly money for old rope.

On the basis of this revelation, if Esther McVey drops out of the Tory leadership contest it won’t be because of any sexism on the party of her fellow MPs.

It will be because they are concerned about the drain on the national budget caused by her attempts to make herself look attractive.

Who would have thought she would want to spend so much public money trying to make herself seem pretty?

Still, the facts don’t lie: She claimed £8,750 on expenses, over two years, for the services of a photographer and public relations person.

The public will interpret this as an admission that she is more interested in her own image than in matters of importance to the nation.

That should be enough for her colleagues to stop her prime ministerial ambition in its tracks.

Tory leader contest: Let’s all remember what Conservatism does to us

The candidates in the Conservative Party leadership election have been launching their campaigns today – and I’m sure their speeches make a lot of sense if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool, blue-rinsed Tory.

By a curious coincidence, the following social media post floated across my screen today and I wanted to share it. It says:

“While you were so worried Socialism would take your freedoms, Capitalism stole your pension, took your savings, sent your jobs overseas, robbed you of health care, dismantled the educational system, and put you in debt, leaving you only your racism, xenophobia, hate, & guns.”

The reference to guns suggests it wasn’t originally written for the UK, but the other words are entirely accurate. I would substitute “Conservatism” for “Capitalism” and add that it also sold all your public utilities – water, electricity, gas and others – to foreign firms.

None of the candidates in the Conservative leadership race will reverse any of the disasters listed here. They will worsen them. Remember that, as this election campaign goes forward.

Margaret Thatcher could be the new backside of the £50 note

Appropriate: Wouldn’t it be fitting if the Spitting Image dummy of Margaret Thatcher became the model for her appearance on the £50 note – if she ends up winning the vote?

In a way it might be considered reasonable to put Margaret Thatcher on money.

She always wanted to be staring out of our currency – but most of us thought her preference would be to replace the Queen on the front.

If she has to be on a note, it is much more appropriate for her to be staring out of its rear end.

And, considering what certain members of her own party have been said to do with £50 notes, one might even consider it poetic justice.

Former prime minister Margaret Thatcher is among a list of names being considered as the face of the new £50 note.

Baroness Thatcher, who was born in Grantham in Lincolnshire, occupied 10 Downing Street as Conservative leader between 1979 and 1990, making her the UK’s longest-serving leader of the 20th century.

She was also Britain’s first female prime minister.

She died in 2013 but remains a controversial figure of British politics.

Is Harman trying to skew the Labour leadership contest, with her bias against Corbyn?

Harriet Harman seems to have misunderstood part of her own offer to members of the public.

Labour – under her – has offered people a chance to register as ‘supporters’ of the party, in order to have a vote in the leadership election.

Jeremy Corbyn has huge support amongst the electorate and it follows that more people will be signing up to support him than the other candidates, whose supporters are more likely to be party members/supporters already.

That’s not “trying to skew” anything – that’s democracy!

If anybody is “trying to skew” the leadership election, it seems that person is Harriet Harman.

Labour MPs should write back, telling her to mind her own bloody business.

Harriet Harman has written to all Labour MPs asking them to check new members are not trying to skew the party’s leadership contest.

Each MP has been sent a list of new members from their constituency so they can check for suspicious names.

It follows claims, denied by the party, of non Labour supporters signing up to back left-wing candidate Jeremy Corbyn.
