Lies, spin and falsehood: Boris Johnson’s New Year message

Boris Johnson is deeply untrustworthy, as Peter Stefanovic’s takedown demonstrates. No wonder Donald Trump won’t trust him with sensitive military information. Boris Johnson’s New Year message is a litany of lies, spin & blatantly false statements deliberately designed to take the public for fools. If you think People deserve the truth RT this — Peter Stefanovic (@PeterStefanovi2) January 1, 2020 Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better?

Corbyn was helping the homeless during the Queen’s Speech. What was Johnson doing?

We’ve established that, like most of the UK’s population, Jeremy Corbyn has better things to do than watch the Queen’s Christmas message. He visits a local shelter for homeless people and helps out. Apparently this is a shocking display of irresponsibility, according to ITV’s Julie Etchingham. But Boris Johnson is raving it up on Mustique. It’s an island playground for the incredibly rich in the tropics somewhere, apparently. So, of the two, which would you say was taking his role seriously? And which may be seen to be rubbing our noses…

Insensitivity of Queen’s Speech prompts backlash against the monarchy

In her Christmas message, the Queen spoke about poverty – a message that was utterly undermined by the opulence of the surroundings in which she delivered her speech. Rather than expressing solidarity with those of her subjects who are currently suffering extreme poverty, the monarch of the fifth-richest country in the world – who enjoys enormous personal wealth – seemed to be rubbing their noses in it. I understand we are supposed to forget our differences this Christmas…….. — Pauline Lane (@Antonineone1) December 25, 2018 She seems to have…

Minister resigns over sexually explicit messages – is Westminster back to business as usual?

After a week in which the Tory government was rocked by major cabinet resignations and a threat of more to come every day, due to Brexit, a Tory minister quitting after being exposed as a sex pest must be a return to normality. The behaviour of Andrew Griffiths, which he appears to have admitted, is a reminder of the kind of attitude that relegated Michael Fallon and Damian Green to the backbenches last year. He isn’t on the now-notorious Tory “sex spreadsheet” – the list of high-ranking Conservatives who were…

Theresa May didn’t mention Jews in her Holocaust message – but Jeremy Corbyn was attacked for it

One of the themes of Holocaust Memorial Day, and the charity behind the event, is that people should come together to prevent future holocausts and genocides. It shames us all, therefore, that some people have been encouraged to complain about Jeremy Corbyn’s Facebook message, in which he did not mention Jews. People were quick to attack the omission, which was said to be from the message he wrote in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s book of remembrance. In fact, it was not. One wonders how that mistake happened. The message from…

Supine prime minister is so weak she’ll stick with hate-tweeter Trump

Did you ever think you’d see the day a UK Prime Minister would admit the American President can insult us to his heart’s content, and we’ll still support him blindly? That is what Theresa May did in her press conference today. It was sickening. Asked what she thinks about President Trump spreading hate speech on Twitter, and what she would do about it, Mrs May spoke at length about Britain First – despite not having been asked for her opinion of that organisation. We know it is “hateful”. Eventually she…

Labour certainly shouldn’t ‘tack UKIP’ – why discuss their nonsense instead of serious issues?

I could not agree more with this Skwawkbox article. Anybody arguing an anti-immigrant position – with regard to Brexit or anything else – is misinformed. Immigrants haven’t taken anybody’s jobs and services away – the Conservative Government did that. And, in fact, the Conservatives have given far more of our resources to foreigners than immigrants could ever have taken – by privatising our national assets and allowing them to be bought by foreign concerns. So weathervane-style triangulation of the kind suggested by Yvette Cooper (who is slowly turning into a…

I, Daniel Blake screenwriter stunned by wall of notes left by movie-goers

This is the film that Work and Pensions Secretary Damian Green describes as “monstrously unfair”. Clearly, the people of Edinburgh disagree – strongly. Told by a panel of MSPs at Holyrood that the Work Capability Assessment “is sending people to go and commit suicide”, Mr Green said: “There is no evidence, and I think bringing people who committed suicide into political debate is always unfortunate.” Here’s some evidence – read the story on the right: Confront Damian Green with that and he’d probably try to tell you that person was…

International politicians react to President Trump

World leaders (and UK politicians) have been making their feelings felt on the subject of Donald Trump’s election as the 45th US President. UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Trump’s election as US President is a rejection of a failed economic consensus, but his answers to the big questions facing America are wrong: Other Labour figures – mostly right-wingers – were far more critical of the newly-elected leader-to-be of the Free World, giving their views on LabourList as follows: Mike Gapes, Labour MP for Ilford South – “As…
