Will committee set to decide Johnson’s fate be replaced entirely?

Recused: Chris Bryant can’t chair the Commons Privileges committee while it examines Boris Johnson’s behaviour because he has already called the prime minister a “proven liar”.

The House of Commons Privileges Committee – that will decide whether Boris Johnson deliberately lied to MPs about Partygate – could be temporarily replaced with an entirely new membership for the job.

Committee chairman Chris Bryant has already recused himself because he has publicly accused Johnson of being a “proven liar”.

The Labour Party must now appoint a new chair, and is said to be looking for a ‘grandee’ to take Bryant’s place.

And there are concerns that that three of the four Tories on the committee – Laura Farris, Alberto Costa and Andy Carter – are on the Government payroll as ministerial aides.

It is entirely possible to replace the whole committee in order to ensure fair process – as happened for the Parliamentary inquiry into Tory former Cabinet Minister Damian Green.

The process may be slightly disrupted if, as is being reported, seven Conservative MPs defect to Labour over Johnson’s Partygate criminality and alleged dishonesty (Dehenna Davison is the only possible defector to have been named).

Obviously they could not be nominated onto the committee but defections would make it harder for the Tories to find candidates.

Priti Patel accused of lying to parliament that migrant boats will be turned away

Liar: it seems clear that Priti Patel deliberately misled Lords into believing that asylum-seekers caught trying to cross the English Channel would be turned away, and tried to keep the policy stating otherwise secret.

Home Secretary Priti Patel has been accused of deliberately misleading Parliament and the public into believing that her Nationality and Borders Bill includes a plan to turn migrant boats away from the UK.

In fact, previously-unpublished clauses of the Bill explicitly state that pushbacks will not be applied against asylum-seekers.

The details came to light after the pushbacks policy was challenged by the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), and the NGOs Care4Calais, Channel Rescue and Freedom From Torture.

The Home Office had applied to the High Court for public interest immunity against publishing the details – a mechanism used over sensitive issues such as organised crime, terrorism or national security. But judges said disclosure did not “give rise to a real risk of serious harm to the public interest”.

Patel gave evidence to the House of Lords’ justice and home affairs committee last autumn in which she said turning boats full of asylum-seekers away from the UK was “absolutely still policy”.

Now it has been revealed that a key part of the previously-unpublished policy states that anyone in a dinghy who indicates they wish to claim asylum in the UK should not be pushed back but instead escorted to UK shores. Almost everyone who uses this method to reach the UK is an asylum seeker according to the Home Office’s own data.

So she lied to Parliament.

Correct me if I’m mistaken, but isn’t there currently a huge row over whether Boris Johnson should be ejected from his job as a member of the government because he’s believed to have deliberately lied to Parliament?

So, shouldn’t Patel also face the same penalty?

In fact, it seems to This Writer that she should be summarily ejected; this is an open-and-shut case.

Why are Tory MPs supporting Johnson when the public overwhelmingly HATE him?

It probably isn’t him but it gets the message across: in a national poll, Boris Johnson has been described as an “utter anus” by at least one respondent. And he’s whipping his MPs to pretend there’s no reason for an inquiry into whether he was dishonest to them…

The Labour Party has secured a vote to decide whether a Commons committee should investigate if criminal prime minister Boris Johnson misled Parliament when he said he adhered to all Covid-19 laws despite attending at least one lockdown-busting party.

Sadly, it seems unlikely to achieve anything as all Conservative MPs are likely to be placed under a three-line whip, ordering them to reject the move in a clearly corrupt attempt to avoid evidence revealing that Johnson deliberately lied.

Ironically, the public have already made up their collective mind: the overwhelming majority of us know a lying criminal when we see one, and that’s how we describe the despicable habitual lawbreaker Boris Johnson.

poll by JLPartners found that just 16 per cent of people would use positive language to describe the prime minister with more than 70 per cent characterising him in negative terms.

Voters were asked to describe the prime minister, with the most frequent description being that he is a ‘liar’ – followed by ‘incompetent’ and ‘untrustworthy’.

Other words used regularly by voters to describe the PM include “idiot” and “buffoon”, while one voter described him as an “utter anus”.

Let’s hope that catches on; I certainly would like to see Johnson described as an “utter anus” wherever he goes.

Amazingly, according to the BBC a majority of Conservative MPs haven’t yet caught on that the rest of us think their leader is an “utter anus”, and are set to support him on Thursday’s vote, as they did during Tuesday’s debate.

One gets the feeling that, by then, Johnson may need the three-line whip he is inflicting on them – otherwise they may act on information received between now and then and vote to dump him.

Doesn’t it say everything about this corrupt criminal liar, “idiot”, “buffoon” and, indeed, “utter anus” that he needs to coerce his own MPs into standing by him?

After Partygate fines, Tory-dominated Parliament is set to saddle us with a criminal government

Where he ought to be: but Boris Johnson looks set to avoid even the slightest censure for breaking the law and lying about it to Parliament because it seems Conservative MPs care more about their own money than the rule of law.

Look how far the UK has fallen under the corrupt leadership of these criminal Conservatives!

After being fined – probably less than the country’s poorest citizens, despite his offence being far worse – for attending a party he had personally explained to the nation was against the law, Boris Johnson looks set to get a free pass from his lickspittle Cabinet and backbenchers.

They seem to think that a criminal who knowingly lied to the nation – about the good times he was having at the same time he was forcing us apart from our friends, family and loved ones who were dying with Covid-19 – will continue to boost their own popularity in elections, and it seems they are more concerned with continuing to draw their enormous MP salaries and expenses claims than with upholding the law.

Only one Conservative – Tory Lord Wolfson – has acted on his conscience. He said the “scale, context and nature” of Covid breaches in government was inconsistent with the rule of law. As a Justice Minister responsible for the constitution, he said the prime minister’s failure to resign left him with no option other than to resign himself.

Three other Tory MPs have said Johnson should quit but others who have previously demanded his resignation have changed their tune and are now cravenly expressing support for the crook.

So the word is that, no matter what sanctions Opposition parties suggest against the UK’s first and only criminal prime minister, the Tories’ 80-seat voting majority will keep him in place.

According to the rules, he should have resigned last week so any failure to do so today (April 19) will be a further offence against the nation.

Johnson deliberately and repeatedly lied to Parliament and to the nation, saying he had not attended any illegal gatherings. Current intelligence suggests he went as far as organising one of them, which renders his current excuse – that he did not realise any of the events he was attending were illegal – into utter nonsense.

He is also expected to say that Partygate is not important – meaning the suffering he put you through while he raved it up is worth nothing to him and his MPs – and we should concentrate instead on the cost of living crisis (that he has caused) and the war in Ukraine (in which the UK is not a participant. In any case, many UK prime ministers have been replaced during wartime).

Opposition parties have been discussing how best to hold Johnson to account and demonstrate the corruption within the Tory ranks that support him. Possible measures include a censure motion or a vote of no confidence.

This Writer believes that it is in the debate that the most damage can be done. Each Conservative who stands up to speak will have to try to justify why they support a prime minister who has not only criminalised himself but has broken the ministerial code to lie about it – to Parliament, an offence that requires him to resign but he has failed to do so.

All Opposition MPs need to do is, when they stand up to speak after a Tory, pass a comment to the effect that the previous speaker is condoning criminality and should themselves be censured by the voters. But I doubt they will have the wit to do that.

Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle is expected to make a decision around lunchtime on what vote – if any – should take place on measures against Johnson (and, for that matter, against Chancellor Rishi Sunak, who has also been fined and is also, therefore, a criminal).

Whatever happens, the day is likely to end with the UK still labouring under the cosh of a government headed by two criminals. Nobody should be comfortable with that.

Why haven’t Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak resigned yet?

Stupidity is no excuse: Rishi Sunak and Boris Johnson have both broken UK law – that Johnson himself announced to the nation – and are therefore criminals. The people at the UK should not tolerate a criminal government. They must be removed if they won’t go willingly. What are you doing about it?

The rules are very simple: Boris Johnson broke the law and lied to Parliament about it. This lying criminal cannot remain in office as prime minister. If there was any justice, he would be ejected from Parliament.

Likewise, Rishi Sunak has been caught making unsavoury tax arrangements for himself, as has his wife – and now he has been found to have broken the laws set by the government of which he was a member. He is also a criminal; he must be removed as well.

And Johnson’s wife Carrie, who attended at least one lockdown-busting party even though she is neither an elected member of the government nor a government employee, has also been fined for breaking the law.

So all the occupants of Number 10 and Number 11 Downing Street are either criminals or tax cheats. Why aren’t they all packing their bags?

Instead, they are trying to jolly us along with tepid, insincere words. Johnson said he felt “an even greater sense of obligation to deliver” (but what will he deliver? More corruption?) and Sunak rambled something about being “focused on delivering for the British people” (but we know that the only thing he is capable of delivering to the majority is misery).

Sunak also said, “I understand that for figures in public office, the rules must be applied stringently in order to maintain public confidence.” How, then, can he expect the public to have any confidence in a Conservative government that allows criminals to remain in place at the very top of UK society? By his own words, he should be gone.

Possibly worse than this is the fact that almost all the Tory Cabinet ministers have supported Johnson and Sunak. This means the Tory cabinet supports criminality and by rights they should also be removed.

I’ve made this point to Liz Truss…

… and will try to do the same with other Cabinet ministers who’ve put their heads above the parapet. How many of them have also been fined – or will be in the future?

Particularly enjoyable is Grant Shapps’s attempt at justification – that Johnson was “mortified” about being fined (he would be. How dare those Met Police plebs fine him. Don’t they know he’s above the law?).

He also said Johnson had not “set out with malice to break the law” (but ignorance of the law is no excuse. And deliberately breaking the law “without malice” is no excuse either: people who steal in order to feed themselves, because Tory laws mean they can’t afford to live otherwise, still go to prison).

And Shapps told BBC Breakfast, “Everyone is human. People make mistakes” (which asserts that Johnson’s attendance at lawbreaking Downing Street parties was a mistake, and there’s no evidence whatsoever to support this. He knew what he was doing. He knew he was breaking the law – because he announced it. He decided he was above the law).

Possibly most disappointing is the response from the major Opposition parties in the House of Commons.

Leaders (and Labour’s Deputy Leader; what’s the matter, Mr Starmer? Are you so used to supporting Tories that you’ve forgotten how to oppose them?) have all demanded that Johnson and Sunak resign – but have taken no steps at all to force the issue.

Where are the demands for a recall of Parliament? Why aren’t they whipping up public outrage at this criminality and dishonesty? Are they “all in it together”?

Groups representing bereaved families who could not be with their loved ones as they died during Covid-19 lockdowns – because they were following the rules that Johnson and Sunak ignored – have demanded an end to the careers of both of these “shameless” criminals.

Don’t these people deserve some form of justice too?

Remember: this is only the first of what may be several fines for Johnson and members of his government – fixed penality notices have been issued only in relation to two out of the 12 events under police investigation. How many more will it take before these crooks finally admit that they can’t inflict themselves upon us any longer?

Oh – and one more thing: how much money were Johnson and Sunak fined? £50? £60? But ordinary members of the public, fined for chatting with each other in their back gardens (for example) faced penalties of more than £1,000. Isn’t this yet another example of the kind of privilege that means these parasites must be removed from the body politic?

Even if you are raging about this, you aren’t angry enough.

What are you doing to get rid of the criminals in the UK’s government?

Criminal Boris Johnson lied to Parliament and to all of us. He HAS to go

Before we get to the latest developments, let’s remind ourselves of what Boris Johnson told us in March 2020. The important part is between one minute and 45 seconds and three minutes and eight seconds into the clip:

Let’s reinforce that message with this clip of Tory Party co-chairman Oliver Dowden, who was Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport at the time:

So we know that Boris Johnson knew that nobody was allowed to meet in a social situation of any kind on – for example – his birthday, June 19, 2020.

And that means we have every right to be outraged that Boris Johnson broke the rules that he announced to us, in order to attend a birthday party laid on for him on that date.

We know that he did break the rules that he himself explained to the rest of us because the Metropolitan Police Service has told us so – issuing him a fixed penalty notice for breaking those rules.

This means that Boris Johnson has finally achieved his place in the history books – by becoming the first UK Prime Minister to become a criminal while in office.

The fixed penalty notice he received is described as a criminal sanction, rather than being for a criminal offence, but the legal situation remains that Johnson is to be consider a criminal from now on.

But it’s worse than that.

The reason it is worse is that Johnson lied to Parliament – and to the nation.

He denied that any lawbreaking took place – on multiple occasions. This Site has audio of it, obligingly provided by the BBC’s PM:

Here’s a more complete video of the December 8 apology:

And here’s his apology from January 12:

As you can see, he has gone from absolute denial that any wrongdoing happened, to denial that he took part in any wrongdoing. And now we know that he did indeed take part in the wrongdoing.

He can no longer claim that he didn’t know he was breaking the rules; he announced them, he broke them, and then he lied about breaking them.

In the circumstances, if he really didn’t know he was doing wrong, then he is not mentally competent to occupy the office of prime minister.

The Ministerial Code, which governs the behaviour of government members, is very clear on the subject of intentional dishonesty to Parliament: anybody committing such an act must be removed from office immediately.

Yet Johnson seems to think he can deliver an insincere apology and carry on. And because, as prime minister, he is the ultimate arbiter of whether the Ministerial Code has been broken, you can bet that he thinks he’ll get away with it:

What do you think of that?

It’s not acceptable.

He committed a crime.

He lied about it in order to cover it up.

He has only apologised after the police forced him to admit it.

This is not prime ministerial behaviour.

And if he won’t go voluntarily, then it is up to us to force him out. If you haven’t contacted your MP already, do so. This Site will inform you of national petitions to force Parliament to adhere to its own rules.

Image of #BorisJohnson with beer at #lockdown birthday party prompts more resignation demands

Boozy Johnson: this is the image everybody is using to illustrate the story about Boris Johnson being pictured with a beer at his birthday party in the Cabinet Office on June 19, 2020 – while the rest of us were stuck in our homes on lockdown. It was actually taken in 2019.

The lies keep being found out, don’t they?

After Boris Johnson was revealed to have attended a birthday party for him in the Cabinet Office on June 19, 2020, when the UK was locked down and all indoor social gatherings were illegal, Downing Street defended him.

“He was there for less than 10 minutes,” a spokeswoman said.

It has now been alleged that Sue Gray has handed the police an image of Johnson holding a can of Estrella beer, taken towards the end of that party, when few people were there, and strangely Downing Street suddenly has nothing to say.

The picture was, apparently, taken by Johnson’s official taxpayer-funded photographer who was said to be documenting the event.

So it seems logical for the police to call in Andrew Parsons (the photographer) and check the data on his camera to find out when the images were taken and how long Johnson was really at the event.

Meanwhile, claims by MPs like Conor Burns that Johnson was “ambushed by a cake” are being disowned – Johnson said he didn’t have one and it seems none of the 300 party images Ms Gray has handed to the police show any cake at all.

Downing Street may be tight-lipped about the situation but former Tory schools minister Nick Gibb hasn’t; he’s the latest MP to submit a letter of “no confidence” in Johnson to the chair of their backbench 1922 committee.

Writing in the Telegraph he said his constituents were “furious about the double standards” and that “to restore trust, we need to change the prime minister”.

He said Covid restrictions imposed by Johnson were “flagrantly disregarded” in Downing Street, and the PM was inaccurate when, in December, he told the House of Commons there was no party.

“Some argue that eating a few canapes with a glass of prosecco is hardly a reason to resign. But telling the truth matters, and nowhere more so than in the House of Commons where, like a court of law, truth must be told regardless of the personal consequences,” he wrote.

His resignation call follows – and endorses – that of Aaron Bell, who on Monday (January 31) asked if Johnson took him for a fool for following the rules himself – including not hugging his family at his grandmother’s funeral, or going for a cup of tea after the service.

In a statement he published on Twitter, Mr Bell said he had written his “no confidence” letter on January 12 but only submitted it yesterday (February 4) after speaking with local councillors and candidates in his constituency:

He said he “could not square the Prime Minister’s words from the despatch box with his previous statements to the House before Christmas. Subsequently I have also struggled to reconcile assurances given directly to me with the implications of Sue Gray’s interim findings.”

He added: “The breach of trust that the events in No 10 Downing Street represent, and the manner in which they have been handled, makes his position untenable.”

Wilfully lying to Parliament: here’s #BorisJohnson

After Ian Blackford was ordered out of Parliament in a shameful display by Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle, let’s examine just one example in which Boris Johnson “wilfully misled” Parliament.

Here’s a video clip of him saying there was no party in Downing Street on November 13, 2020:

According to Sue Gray’s interim report on alleged Downing Street parties, the police are investigating one such event that happened in the flat where Johnson lives on that date.

The fact that police are investigating suggests very strongly that a party did take place there, and the fact that they are looking for criminal activity also suggests very strongly that the Covid-19 guidance (to which Johnson was referring in the clip) was not followed at all times.

As far as I’m aware, Johnson was not away from the UK at that time, so one presumes he slept in the flat on the night of November 13, 2020 – unless he fell asleep elsewhere in the building, during the party for the departure of Dominic Cummings.

Whichever, it seems clear that Johnson knew what was going on at the time, and would have known he was not telling the truth about it when he answered the question in Parliament.

That’s knowingly misleading MPs, which is an offence under the Ministerial Code.

Where’s his resignation?

Even the limited #SueGrayReport should sink #BorisJohnson

Still laughing at us: Boris Johnson mocked attempts to hold him to account at Prime Minister’s Questions and he did the same in his statement on Sue Gray’s interim report – this time hiding behind the fact that he is being investigated by the police for criminal offences.

Cabinet Office civil servant Sue Gray has published an update on her investigation into lockdown-busting parties at Downing Street – not the report of her inquiry – and it should still be enough to end Boris Johnson’s time as the UK’s worst-ever prime minister.

The update states that Ms Gray was asked to investigate 16 “gatherings” at 10 Downing Street or in its gardens, between May 2020 and April 2021, but she is unable to report in any meaningful way on her conclusions.

This is because the police are now investigating potential criminal offences that may have been committed as a result of 12 of those gatherings having taken place.

These include a birthday party for Johnson himself in the Cabinet Room on June 19, 2020.

They also include a so-called “Abba” party in the flat at 11 Downing Street that is inhabited by Johnson and his wife on November 13, 2020.

So the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is being investigated by the police for criminal offences. That alone should be enough to see him off.

Johnson is on the record, in Parliament, as having said he was unaware of any gatherings having taken place at all.

But he was present at his own birthday event (obviously) and in refusing to say he was not at the Downing Street flat on November 13, 2020, it may be inferred that he was tacitly admitting that he was there.

It seems clear that he has lied brazenly to Parliament and to the public about these insults to the people of the UK who were making huge sacrifices while he whooped it up at our expense.

But when he traipsed into the House of Commons and made his (lawyer-drafted?) statement, Johnson merely trotted out that tired old lie that the government would “learn the lessons” and said he’d create a new “Office of the Prime Minister”, as if that would end the corruption that oozes out of him wherever he goes.

And when the SNP’s Ian Blackford – correctly – accused him of lying and misleading Parliament, Speaker Lindsay Hoyle ordered the Scottish Nationalist out of the chamber.

But it seems clear that members of his own party know that Johnson’s time is up.

Former PM Theresa May made very good points:

And former Cabinet Minister Andrew Mitchell stood up to announce that Johnson has lost his confidence.

How many other Tories are thinking the same thing, even if they aren’t saying it?

It’s time to get those “no confidence” letters flowing in to Graham Brady.

#Starmer’s #lies: he has u-turned on Labour candidate selection

We should all be indebted to those of us who have long memories.

Yesterday (January 25) Keir Starmer won a vote by Labour’s ruling NEC, cutting grassroots members out of the longlisting process for Parliamentary candidates. It means regional and national committees will choose who can be a candidate and local, constituency members will not be allowed to offer up their own choice.
