Johnson’s reign of coronavirus confusion: his government wants us to visit parents ONE AT A TIME

Boris Johnson with his mother Charlotte Johnson Wahl (right) (and sister Rachel, centre). Has he seen his mother since the Covid-19 crisis began?

What is this lunacy?

When you saw Boris Johnson telling us to get back to work on Sunday, did you realise his new idea of guidance means that we can visit family members – but only one at a time, even if they live in the same house?

… or something?

It’s not entirely clear. Phil and Holly on This Morning tried to explain it on Monday but I was even more confused at the end of it:

So the next day, they asked Matt Hancock to explain:

“Utterly bonkers” is being kind.

These ridiculous rules from the Tories are setting us all up to fail.

Either we can go and see our relatives or we can’t.

And if we can see our family one at a tme, why not other people?

Is this just an excuse to infect older people with the coronavirus, so the Tories won’t have to pay pensions and can raid the fund for cash to pay for the pandemic (just a thought)?

Whatever the reasoning, Hancock and Johnson are creating openings for a new Covid-19 outbreak.

Even Phillip and Holly are knocking holes in Boris Johnson’s lies

Skewered: Boris Johnson’s NHS lies were exposed by Phillip and Holly when they interviewed him on This Morning.

Did you think it was all soppiness and selfies when Boris Johnson was interview by the This Morning team?

Think again.

Because when Johnson tried to lie that he hasn’t been selling off the NHS piecemeal to private companies, many of them American, this happened:

Earlier in the week, This Writer complained to Phillip Schofield about his inappropriate attempt to extort an apology from Jeremy Corbyn over anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. Mr Corbyn ended up saying that of course he was sorry for distress caused to Jewish people by the (manufactured) furore – but added that he had done everything possible to combat it.

I pointed out that anti-Semitism in the Labour Party is much less prevalent than in other political organisations and in the UK generally, and asked Mr Schofield if he was going to tackle Boris Johnson over the far greater amount of racism and anti-Semitism in the Conservative Party.

Of course I didn’t get a response, being just the writer of a lowly website that only gets around half a million hits a month.

But this will do. We can see Mr Johnson lying at the start and then, even after being faced with the facts, he lied at the end as well.

So we should thank Phillip and Holly and the team on This Morning.

And if we value our health, we should vote Labour.

Corbyn-May Brexit TV debate is on – but why must it clash with the final of I’m a Celebrity?

Theresa May or Holly Willoughby: Who would YOU rather watch on a Sunday evening?

Jeremy Corbyn has agreed to debate Brexit with Theresa May – and the preferred date appears to set them both against Holly Willoughby and Dec Donnelly, as they crown the new King or Queen of the Jungle.

Who will win? The answer is obvious.

The final of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here will trounce a dull political debate – especially one that has already been made, repeated and repeated again in the House of Commons.

Mr Corbyn won every time – but we don’t know who’ll take the jungle crown so that’s where viewers will go – on December 9.

The “meaningful vote” on whether Parliament will back Mrs May’s Brexit deal will take place two days later, on December 11.

But we already know the result.

By agreeing to a debate scheduled opposite on of the biggest audience-grabbers of the TV year, Mrs May is admitting defeat.

She won’t persuade the millions of viewers who will be watching the biggest reality TV show in the UK – so she won’t persuade the MPs who are threatening to end her premiership.

The public will vote one lucky celebrity up on Sunday – and then on Tuesday the Commons will vote Mrs May down.

Why is David Cameron tarring gay people with the same brush as paedophiles?

Controversial: Philip Schofield prepares to hand his list of alleged Tory paedophiles to David Cameron on today’s This Morning, watched by co-presenter Holly Willoughby. Concerns over whether he should have done it are totally outweighed by the Prime Minister’s inappropriate reference to “gay people”.

It’s what they say when they’re caught off-guard that really defines a politician.

Today, comedy Prime Minister David Cameron was caught off-guard by Philip Schofield (of all people) – and the result was not funny at all. In a This Morning interview, Schofe handed over a piece of paper with three names on it, of Conservatives accused of being involved in child abuse.

The presenter said there were many allegations online about people who might have carried out abuse, and he had been able to find the names on the list after searching for about three minutes. He said they were people Mr Cameron knew, and asked if the PM would be talking to them.

Cameron’s response: “There is a danger that this could turn into a sort of witch-hunt, particularly against people who are gay.”

Gay? What, gay in general? Everyone else is talking about paedophiles, David; why did you just broaden it into a debate about homosexuality?

We don’t want to know about your prejudices, David. Paedophiles do not have to be, by definition, gay.

If a responsible adult wants to engage in a same-sex relationship with another consenting adult, that is none of my business, nor yours, nor the State’s.

It is a world away from what is under discussion. Paedophilia is the action of an irresponsible adult, engaging in an inappropriate physical relationship with a minor – of either sex – who is therefore legally unable to give consent to it. That is our business, and I suggest you concentrate on it, starting with the allegations against the members of your party.

Mr Cameron went on with a personal warning to Schofe: “I’m worred about the sort of thing you are doing right now – giving me a list of names that you’ve taken off the internet.”

On one level, that was never going to work. Public sympathy will always be on the side of Philip Schofield when a politician tries to intimidate him (as I think Mr Cameron was trying to do). And there is an argument that it is in the public interest for Schofe to put evidence before the Prime Minister that accusations are being made in a public forum and that he needs to do something about it.

Having said that, I should add a few words of caution, because the PM was absolutely right to warn against a witch-hunt.

Back in 17th century America, witchcraft was the taboo; in 1950s America, it was Communism. Now, here, it’s paedophilia. The link between them is that an accusation automatically led to the belief that the named person was guilty of the crime, whether they had committed it or not.

I know a man who is in prison at the moment after being convicted of abusing a child. I was at the trial and heard all the evidence and I am convinced that he did not do it. It’s my opinion that the accusation was enough to sway the jury. The gentleman concerned won an appeal against an intial conviction, at which the presiding judge overturned the verdict after asking for the factual evidence on which the defendant had been convicted and being told there was none. He sent it back for retrial and the jury convicted him again – as I say – because in my opinion he was accused of the modern version of witchcraft. Or Communism.

No organisation exists to represent the interests of a person who has been wrongly convicted of paedophilia. Once a person has been tarred with that brush, it sticks to them for life.

The whole issue of paedophilia is therefore surrounded by abuse. Abuse of children. Abuse of the system by people who accuse the innocent (for purposes of their own). Abuse of the system by police officers who refuse to investigate legitimate allegations (as we’ve heard in the Jimmy Savile affair). Abuse of the system by politicians who want to cover up the involvement of their colleagues in a scandal (as it has been alleged).

But, Mr Cameron, you can’t judge that a person is a paedophile according to whether or not they are gay.
