‘Lost control’ of Covid-19? When did Tory ministers have any control over the virus?

Rampant: the Covid-19 virus is once again on the loose across the UK because the Tories haven’t just lost control; they’ve deliberately thrown it away.

Let’s be honest: Covid-19 infections in the UK are skyrocketing again and there’s nothing the Tory government can do about it.

Monday (September 7) was the second day running that nearly 3,000 new infections were recorded – and remember, that’s only among people who have been tested and the number of tests available are limited. Allow me to demonstrate:

Professor Gabriel Scally, a member of the Independent Sage group and a former NHS regional director of public health for the south-west, reckons that government ministers have “lost control of the virus”.

“It’s no longer small outbreaks they can stamp on,” he told The Guardian. “It’s become endemic in our poorest communities and this is the result. It’s extraordinarily worrying when schools are opening and universities are going to be going back.”

But it should be obvious that the Tories haven’t got any control at all.

They might have had some when the lockdown was in force but those days are long gone. It seems increasingly likely that lockdown was only imposed to keep on the right side of public opinion and the real plan was “herd immunity”.

This is the idea that if enough of us develop antibodies to the disease, its effect will be negligible. But “herd immunity” requires a majority of the population to be vaccinated against a disease and there is no vaccine.

Allowing a majority to become infected merely increases the likelihood of unnecessary deaths.

The number of infections started rising as soon as the first lockdown relaxations happened and it seems to This Writer that the exponential rise now may be partially due to schools returning…

Sickness Secretary Matt Hancock is trying to push responsibility for curbing the virus onto young people –

– but it’s nothing to do with them and everything to do with him.

That’s because the situation is worse than I suggested in the headline.

Not only did the Tories not have control over Covid-19 infections – they have deliberately avoided it.

‘Desperate’? Boris Johnson is clutching at straws as his party loses faith

Impotent rage: Boris Johnson is losing his grip on his party, as his incompetence as a leader becomes increasingly apparent.

Remember the old adage that repeating an action and expecting a different result is a sign of madness? It seems Boris Johnson hasn’t.

But then we already knew his grip on reality is tenuous at best.

The Observer is reporting that he is furious at the failure of his attempt to smear Labour leader Keir Starmer by connecting him with the IRA.

But rather than finding an alternative, he has instead reprimanded his advisers for leaving him under-prepared – and demanded more attack lines on Starmer, doubling down on criticism of his legal record.

It hasn’t worked; it won’t work.

Even where Starmer may be criticised, he knows those weaknesses and will have answers.

And of course Johnson will be laying himself open to analysis of his own past career – which consists of multiple claims of dishonesty and at least one high-profile sacking.

That won’t play well when he lays himself open to an airing of his faults at PMQs.

Meanwhile, his colleagues in the Conservative Party will be doing what they always do when they see a leader sinking; they’re sharpening their knives. Here’s The Observer:

There is evidence that the wider Tory party is losing faith in Johnson’s ability to lead them against Starmer – and signs that the chancellor Rishi Sunak has become the new favourite of the Conservative grassroots.

According to the latest survey of Tory members by ConservativeHome, the website for party activists, Johnson is now in the bottom third of cabinet ministers in the satisfaction ratings – having been the runaway leader nine months ago.

Johnson has slumped to 19th place, below Baroness Evans, the leader of the House of Lords, with a rating of plus 24.6%. Sunak meanwhile is out in front on plus 82.5%.

The verdict among the Twitterati is that Johnson is self-destructing:

You get the idea.

Who said Johnson would be gone by Christmas?

It seems likely he might be out a lot sooner.

Advisor who got Tories to buy useless PPE loses his unpaid position. Is that really enough?

Liz Truss: she slipped her buddy Andrew Mills £150 million for useless PPE, launching a huge corruption scandal in the process. Now the Tories have quietly dropped him from his position as an unpaid advisor to the Board of Trade.

Some might say it’s poetic justice that Andrew Mills, the man who advised Liz Truss to buy unusable face masks for the NHS, has lost his position as an advisor to the Board of Trade.

But what’s happened to all the money that she paid the firm he also (as it happens) advises, Ayanda Capital?

Was that repaid?

If not, then it seems the loss of his unpaid position – as part of a wider reshuffle and not even connected to the PPE scandal – is no punishment at all.

UK faces biggest health threat in decades after losing TEN THOUSAND NURSES because of Brexit

Boris Johnson really is the exact opposite of a genius, isn’t he?

He campaigned hard for Brexit, no matter what the consequences.

And now we see the consequences.

As the UK braces itself for the full force of a coronavirus crisis that Johnson appears to be doing nothing to prevent, we discover that the National Health Service has lost 10,000 nurses because of Brexit.

That’s the number of nurses the nation is understood to have lost because EU citizens have been discouraged from coming to the UK as a result of the Brexit decision.

And we were already dozens of thousands of nurses below-strength.

So we’re even more poorly-equipped to handle this crisis – as a result of Boris Johnson’s inverse genius – than we previously thought.

All of which shows that he’s the exact opposite of a leader as well.

But then, we can all see that perfectly clearly.

After all, where is he?

Was this the moment Boris Johnson ensured that LABOUR will win the election?

Boris Johnson: Is this how he looks when he realises he has said the wrong thing yet again?

Do you remember when Gordon Brown referred to “that bigoted woman” after talking to a voter in the run-up to the 2010 general election, having forgotten that he was wearing a microphone and it was switched on?

The recording – and his reaction when it was played back to him in a radio studio – went viral and may well have ensured that Labour lost that election. We ended up with a hung Parliament and the infamous “Con-Dem Coalition” of Tories and Liberal Democrats that created the conditions that are still harming the country – and killing members of its population – now.

Today, with concerns over NHS services and its possible privatisation – by his Conservative party, Boris Johnson was asked about Jack, the four-year-old boy with pneumonia who was photographed by his mother, sleeping on a hospital floor.

And he did this:

He didn’t even look at the image; just waffled around and tried to steal the phone it was on!

It’s actually worse than what Gordon Brown did, because Mr Johnson knew exactly what he was up to – and that he was being filmed doing it.

It tells us all what Mr Johnson was thinking: “Don’t show me somebody’s urchin when I’m trying to lie to you.”

If you think otherwise, consider his response when challenged about it later:

More evasion, waffle and lies.

The Tories aren’t putting the biggest-ever investment in the NHS. New Labour did that.

I wasn’t aware of any Bill going through Parliament before Labour let Mr Johnson have his election, to ensure NHS funding above inflation every year – and I’m pretty sure it would not have been blocked by MPs. And there’s no need for an Act of Parliament to increase NHS funding.

(Oh, and Brexit won’t get done because it’s a years-long process, and the Tories won’t invest massively in our public services because they’re in negotiations with Donald Trump, trying to sell the lot to US companies.)

A commenter on This Site’s Facebook page had a better grasp of the situation: ‘You have heard of “Elf on a Shelf” well this is “Poor on the Floor” – vote Conservative to create many more stories like this, and maybe a “Boris Bonus” where children actually die.’

Meanwhile, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was in Bristol, where he had been greeted by an unfathomable number of supporters who heard him discuss Mr Johnson’s latest foot-in-mouth moment:

Who would you trust to make the NHS able to provide proper treatment for Jack, every time?

It’s got to be Corbyn and Labour.

Will Jeremy Corbyn really step down as leader if Labour loses a general election?

Jeremy Corbyn: He’ll win the next election or quit as Labour leader, according to the shadow chancellor in a new interview.

The Independent is running a disturbing report that claims Jeremy Corbyn will quit as Labour leader if the party loses at the expected general election later this year.

The claim is from an interview between former New Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell and shadow chancellor John McDonnell, in GQ magazine.

Mr McDonnell is quoted as follows, after being asked if Mr Corbyn would “stay on”: “I can’t see so. What we’d do is as the tradition, which is have an election for a new leader.”

He added: “I think it is the same for my own personal position.”

This is unfortunate as it gives every troublemaker in the UK a reason to campaign hard against Labour – to end the hope of a government that serves the majority, rather than a greedy few.

This Writer certainly expects Mr Campbell to try to capitalise on this as, being a staunch ally of the neoliberal Blairite project, he’ll want to see the reinstallation of an anonymous suit as Labour leader with a brief to make it as close to the Conservative Party as possible, in order to deny us any real choice in a general election.

The Liberal Democrats and the Tories, under the unspeakable Jo Swinson and the abominable Boris Johnson, will be much worse.

The forthcoming election is therefore shaping up to be a battle for the soul of the nation.

Will Mr Corbyn’s supporters fight to win?

Or do we hand the United Kingdom to the forces of darkness?

Labour vows to help women affected by pension age changes after court lets them down

The Labour Party it will do what it can to compensate the so-called ‘WASPI’ protesters – Women Against State Pension Inequality – after the High Court ruled that the government had not discriminated against them on grounds of age and/or sex.

The government has implemented changes to the pension age for women, in order to equalise it with that for men, in a move that affected nearly four million women who were born in the 1950s – some became homeless as a result and many became suicidal.

They said not enough was done to publicise the changes and to ensure that those affected would be ready.

The UN committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has said the rise in the pension age has added to “poverty, homelessness and financial hardship among the affected women”.

“The 1950s women helped build Britain and were let down by the government’s pension changes. They will understandably be very disappointed by today’s finding,” said shadow pensions minister Jack Dromey.

“Labour has already made commitments to support women affected, including by extending Pension Credit to hundreds of thousands of the most vulnerable women. We will consult further with the 1950s women affected as to what future support we can put in place once in government to help ensure that all these women have security and dignity in older age.”

Michael Mansfield QC, representing the women affected, added: “They have pushed women who were already disadvantaged into the lowest class you can imagine.

“They’re on the brink of survival, and I’m not overstating that. This group – especially the percentage of the group affected born in 1953 onwards – are increasingly having taken away from them four to six years’ worth of state pension. We’re dealing with very serious sums: £37,000 to £47,000. I think any citizen would be concerned by that withdrawal.”

In a summary of the court’s decision, Lord Justice Irwin and Mrs Justice Whipple said their hands were tied: “The court was saddened by the stories contained in the claimants’ evidence. But the court’s role was limited. There was no basis for concluding that the policy choices reflected in the legislation were not open to government. In any event they were approved by Parliament.

“The wider issues raised by the claimants about whether the choices were right or wrong or good or bad were not for the court. They were for members of the public and their elected representatives.”

In fact, it seems the only person happy about the verdict was Boris Johnsons spokesperson, who crowed that it has “always been our view” the changes made were “entirely lawful and did not discriminate on any grounds”.

“Government decided in 1995 it was going to make the state pension age the same for men and women as a long-overdue move towards gender equality,” the spokesperson said. “Today the court recognised the extensive communications that the Department for Work and Pensions made to publicise these changes over many years.”

Did it?

It seems clear that there’s only one way these pensioners are going to get compensation for this decision – made by a Tory government in 1995 and implemented by a Tory government in 2010:

Elect a Labour government.

Tory polling shows Boris Johnson cannot win a general election

Tory electoral ruin: According to the Downing Street polling being reported today, neither of these people are likely to vote Conservative in a future election.

Will Boris Johnson really want to call an election after seeing polling that shows he would end up with only 295-300 seats in Parliament?

That’s what may happen, it seems:

Will Mr Johnson still put forward a motion for a general election today (September 9), in the light of this result?

He won’t get it, of course, so it might be a show of bravado to do it.

But the facts seem clear:

A Boris Johnson-led Conservative Party cannot win a general election.

MPs defeat government: They’ll debate Bill to prevent “no deal” Brexit

Boris Johnson has been defeated in his first vote as prime minister.

MPs were voting on whether to debate a Bill to prevent “no deal” Brexit tomorrow (September 4).

And Tory rebels queued up to vote with Opposition MPs against Dictator Johnson – despite knowing that they will be stripped of the Conservative whip for doing so.

The result of the vote: Aye (to hold the debate on blocking “no deal”): 328 No: 301

“Not a good start, Boris!” shouted one backbencher.

Backbenchers will have control of Commons business on September 4.

It seems Mr Johnson is going to try to call a general election in response – although he’ll need the support of two-thirds of MPs to get it, according to the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, and they’re unlikely to allow it.

Apparently he’s not the first PM to lose his first vote. It seems Pitt the Younger suffered the same fate, in 1793.

But today, he seems to be stymied – and he only has himself to blame.

Nutty Nigel Farage wants a say in Brexit after LOSING a by-election. Phew, what a loony!

All mouth: Nigel Farage.

Just a quick reminder:

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party won 29 seats in the EU Parliament election after falsely claiming that they would use those seats to get Brexit done. In fact, the European Parliament won’t have any further say in the matter.

In any case, look at Mr Farage’s voting record: “Absent”, “absent”, “absent”. People who voted for the Brexit Party elected MEPs who won’t even turn up.

Yesterday, at the Peterborough by-election, Mr Farage’s candidate lost.

So why has he just delivered a letter to Downing Street, demanding a place in any new Brexit negotiating team?

He simply hasn’t earned the right, he certainly doesn’t have any experience, and it is a sign of insanity that he is claiming he should.

Perhaps he’s getting desperate to find a way of delivering our National Health Service to his friend Donald Trump? We must not let that happen.

As for his general approach, he is a trash-talking chief of a party with no policies. Has he even published a manifesto for those EU elections?

There can be only one conclusion:

He is a modern-day example of the Emperor’s new clothes. He is all mouth and no trousers.
