Something for the weekend, Mr Hancock? Here’s what you’ve given us [HUMOUR/STRONG LANGUAGE]

The last day or so have been a hard time for Matt Hancock and he has said he would appreciate being left alone to come to terms with the revelations about his love life.

FAT CHANCE!

It’s bonanza time for those of us who enjoy mocking what’s he’s been doing with his banana.

I haven’t even seen much of what’s going around but I know you’ll get a kick out of this…

… and this (it’s long, which is probably more than we can say for Matt, and it’s enjoyable, which again…)…

Oh dear – it seems Facebook is demanding you watch it on that platform. Please do. In the meantime, here’s – the real – Matt strutting his stuff on stage with Therese Coffey. What a sex machine!

How about this comment on Hancock being busy saving lives?

A friend of mine has tried to raise the tone by comparing the photo of Hancock having that extra-regulatory snog with Gina Coladangelo with classical art:

Apparently the choice of colours make it much more like The Scream than what was probably intended:

You go for Klimt but you get Munch. I’m sure many women understand that sensation.

Never mind, Matt – you can always try to justify it by saying you’re an “Alpha Male”. Just don’t expect anybody to take you seriously… ever again.

One parting shot: here’s Jonathan Pie to bring it all home to Hancock in a big way. Be warned that he doesn’t hold back at all and the language is extreme:

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

Sick Conservative poster compares Miliband to stroke victim – Mirror Online

150430torystrokeposter

This is the image that should be the last nail in the coffin of the Conservative Party’s election hopes.

But the right-wing media will probably work hard to make sure that most people don’t see it.

According to the Daily Mirror, it was published on Twitter by the Conservative Party’s official account for Campden Ward, in the London borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

As the Mirror pointed out, the image “mocks the Stroke Association‘s Act FAST poster – illustrating each of the charity’s three signs of a stroke, ‘Face, Arms and Speech’, with a picture of Ed Miliband.

“The fourth message then declares T stands for: ‘Time to LOL’.”

It seems bizarre that Tories in a ‘safe’ Conservative constituency would want to shoot their party’s foot off in this way, but the evidence speaks for itself:

The entire Twitter account has since been deleted and the ward’s Facebook page has changed its name to ‘Parks Lnd’.

The Mirror report quotes Labour candidate Carrie Wilson, who wrote: “Utterly disgusted at CampdenWard for taking something as serious as a stroke warning to mock someone.

“It is NEVER okay to use a stroke awareness warning as a joke.”

Hear, hear. Doesn’t this say everything you need to know about the Conservative Party’s attitude to illness and disability? It’s all a big joke to them!

At long last, Conservative policy on sickness benefits is explained.

Is this really an organisation that deserves 280 Parliamentary seats after the general election next week?

‘Failing Grayling’ could cost the Tories hundreds of thousands of votes – Left Foot Forward

Almost where he belongs: But Injustice Minister Chris Grayling should be behind bars - not in front of them.

Almost where he belongs: But Injustice Minister Chris Grayling should be behind bars – not in front of them.

According to Left Foot Forward: 82 per cent of people in the legal sector say they would be less likely to vote Conservative in the general election if justice secretary Chris Grayling is not removed from his post.

The poll was conducted by new social networking site www.mootis.co.uk which focuses on the legal services sector. Many of the 350,000 people working in this sector are traditional Tory voters.

Grayling was defeated at least seven times in the courtroom last year, over policies aimed at reducing compensation for asbestos victims, cutting legal aid and banning books in prison… [his] career has been marked by controversies, including a scandal over expenses claims and a botched set of statistics on violent crime. In 2010 he was named ‘Bigot of the Year’ by gay rights charity Stonewall after he was recorded saying that B&B owners should have the right to bar gay couples.

Grayling is the first Lord Chancellor in 440 years who is not a trained lawyer. Mootis Chairman Bill Braithwaite QC said that it was clear that the vast majority of legal sector workers ‘are fed up of Grayling and are prepared to turn their back on the Conservatives if he remains as Justice secretary’.

Hilary Meredith, CEO of Hilary Meredith Solicitors Ltd in London and Wilmslow said: “It is time for failing Grayling to go. He is the most inept Justice secretary in living memory. The vast majority of lawyers would accept that cuts needed to be made to the legal aid bill but the ham-fisted way in which he has gone about his business has made a mockery of our legal system.”

Meanwhile, former Tory MP Jerry Hayes has also laid into the Justice secretary over his attempts to limit access to judicial review. In an astonishing attack, Hayes described Grayling as “a s*** which will have to be flushed” after the election.
