Sue Gray: Boris Johnson definitely attended November 13, 2020 party. He lied. He must go

‘All the lawbreaking happened after I left’, says Johnson. Look at him, participating fully in Lee Cain’s leaving party in Downing Street. He actually gave a speech, while drinking alcohol at this social event in flagrant breach of lockdown laws that were then in force. Now he’s lying about it AGAIN. He treated you with utter contempt. He MUST be flushed out of Parliament like the excrement he is.

Clearly Sue Gray disagrees with the Metropolitan Police about Boris Johnson’s participation in Lee Cain’s leaving party on November 13, 2020.

Images of Johnson at the party were published by ITV News on Monday (May 23) and you can read This Writer’s article about it here.

In her report, Ms Gray states: “There was a leaving speech and drinks in No 10 for Lee Cain later that day, which the Prime Minister attended.

“A number of press office staff and media special advisers gathered in the Press Office area of No 10 to mark the departure of Lee Cain, the No 10 Director of Communications.

“The investigation was informed that this was not pre-planned. It did occur at around the time that ‘Wine Time Friday’ would normally be taking place.

“The Prime Minister attended on his way to his Downing Street flat, having left his office at 19.17. He went to the Press Office area, joined the gathering and made a leaving speech for Lee Cain.

“Wine had been provided and those attending, including the Prime Minister, were drinking alcohol. There are a number of photographs of the event.”

He joined the gathering and those attending, including the prime minister, were drinking alcohol.

Clearly it was a social gathering – a party. Clearly Johnson was there. Clearly he participated fully, including imbibing alcohol.

This belies his own claim to fellow MPs in the House of Commons. As I stated yesterday: “Questioned in Parliament on whether a party had taken place on that date, Johnson said, ‘No but I’m sure that whatever happened, the guidance was followed, and the rules were followed at all times.'”

As I write this, Johnson is telling his fellow MPs, once again, a load of nonsense that any wrongdoing happened after he had left. This is clearly untrue as the pictorial evidence shows.

He did attend these events and participated in them fully. He did lie to Parliament about it.

This corrupt crook should resign. But we can see from his behaviour today that he absolutely will not.

It is up to his fellow Parliamentarians – the MPs that he deliberately and corruptly deceived – to force him out before he drags the UK’s Parliament into any more disgrace.

Police launch investigation into Campaign Against Antisemitism’s ‘death-threat’ petition

This just in, courtesy of Skwawkbox:

The Charity Commission is investigating the Campaign against Antisemitism (CAA) – an organisation that has been accused of being pro-Israel ‘shock troops’ ‘posing as a charity’ with regard to its petition against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

As well as being a likely breach of charities’ obligation to refrain from party-political activity – the petition demands Labour MPs remove Corbyn or form a new party – the petition has been called defamatory and accused of inciting number of death threats. The CAA has condemned the death-threat comments, but did not remove them and has not taken down the petition.

Now the Metropolitan Police have also confirmed that they are investigating the CAA and the petition under the Malicious Communications Act after receiving complaints about the nature of the petition.

Watson’s hypocrisy: He complained about campaign for his resignation but plotted to remove Corbyn – claim

A more topical shot of Mr Watson would be one of him with his back to the camera, because he does his best to ignore legitimate criticism of his activities.

If only we could ask Mr Watson for his side of the story – but he blocks anyone who contacts him on the social media with tricky questions like that.

The following tweets will seem highly repetitive but the point needs to be made: Talk radio station LBC has alleged that Tom Watson, Labour’s deputy leader, attended a secret barbecue hosted by Peter “I try to undermine Jeremy Corbyn every single day” Mandelson, at which they and other hard-right Labour MPs discussed ways to “save” the party from its current leader.

This is the same Tom Watson who complained bitterly about a campaign calling for his own resignation after one of his recent high-profile attempts to stab his party leader in the back.

The apparent hypocrisy should be obvious to everybody.

Boris Johnson thinks he can refuse to be sacked. This should be fun…

Boris Johnson tries to catch his falling star during his speech at the Conservative Party Conference this year [Image: AFP].

https://twitter.com/RhonddaBryant/status/917284147231641600

The idea of a cabinet minister refusing to be moved isn’t as far removed from reality as some might believe.

Iain Duncan Smith allegedly refused to allow David Cameron to move him from the Department for Work and Pensions in – I believe – September 2012. He insisted on continuing his work to deprive the most vulnerable people in the UK of the benefits for which they had paid throughout their working lives and that they needed in order to survive.

So Mr Johnson could argue that he must continue his own work, bringing the UK into disrepute internationally and lowering the Conservative government in the minds of right-thinking people generally.

But Theresa May is not David Cameron. Many – including This Writer – see her as weak, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be levered into doing the right thing.

If she thinks she’s between the proverbial ‘rock and hard place’, who knows what could happen?

Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson delivers his speech on the third day of the Conservative Party annual conference [Imge: AFP].

Boris Johnson will “just say no” if Theresa May tries to sack him, it has been reported.

The Foreign Secretary will apparently just refuse any attempts by the Prime Minister to demote him, who indicated that he could be moved into another Cabinet role in a reshuffle.

Allies of Mr Johnson have warned that doing so would undermine Brexit and destabilise the Government.

When Theresa May is ousted, it won’t matter who replaces her – unless it is a Labour PM

[Image from Twitter.]

This is very pertinent, from Labour’s Richard Burgon: The problems with a Conservative government don’t lie solely with the choice of prime minister.

When Theresa May finally accepts her P45 – for real – it will most likely be for a Conservative to replace her. That means the government will be the same as before.

The same policies of impoverishment for workers and enrichment for the idle elite.

The same policies of genocide against the sick and disabled.

The same arrogance when dealing with the European Union and other foreign countries/organisations.

The same hypocrisy.

The same lies.

The same abuse.

It’s not acceptable.

When Mrs May goes, we – the citizens of the UK – need to make it clear that her government has failed.

That it does not have any legitimacy.

That it never had any.

And that we want a new government, from a better political party – now.

The main problem with the Conservative Party Conference wasn’t that the Prime Minister’s speech ended up like an excruciating scene from Peep Show or The Office. The main problem was the Conservative Party’s mask of decency slipping on a number of occasions and a complete lack of policy, vision and hope.

The ethos and agenda of the Conservative Party is no laughing matter. And that was very clearly revealed in the Foreign Secretary’s statement to an audience in a conference meeting that there’s big profits to be made in Libya if you just “clear the dead bodies away.”

I believe that the Foreign Secretary’s statement wasn’t a “gaffe” as some have called it — it was a window into the worldview of top Tories.

His recitation of a colonial song while in Burma and his callous call to “clear the dead bodies away” in a bomb-blasted Libya that his government helped to make more dangerous, more unsafe and more unstable are true to born-to-rule Bullingdon-boy type.

The truth is, we can’t trust the Conservatives to do the right thing in terms of Britain’s role in the world — and the Prime Minister’s fawning over a president who threatens to “totally destroy” an entire country, her politically motivated refusal to do what even her Conservative predecessors did and commit to the principle of a world free from nuclear weapons and the Foreign Secretary’s reference to the corpses his government’s disastrous intervention helped to create in Libya as barriers to business and profit are further proof of this.

Much has been made of the idea that in response to Corbyn and socialist Labour’s huge advance in the battle of ideas, the Conservative government has “stolen” Labour’s policies.

If only. Rather than adopting Labour’s policies, the Conservative government has — in pure desperation — produced pale imitations of Labour’s policies in an attempt to dupe a public that is more fed up to the back teeth with them with each day that passes.

The task of our movement is not just the removal of a prime minister or even just the removal of a government. The task of our movement is to secure a Labour government which will remove a system that is rigged against working people.

Tories have been plotting to backstab Theresa May after series of disasters

Grant Shapps: ‘A growing number of my colleagues realise the solution isn’t to bury our heads in the sand and hope things will get better.’ [Image: Peter Macdiarmid/Getty Images.]

Amazingly, we now have something for which to thank Grant Shapps!

The former Tory chair, whose own sordid history has been well-covered on This Site in the past, has emerged as the man behind the inevitable plot to oust Theresa May from the Tory leadership and from 10 Downing Street:

Some cabinet ministers privately agree Theresa May should step aside, a former Conservative party chairman has said, as pressure grows on the prime minister to call a leadership election.

Grant Shapps, who served as Tory chair for nearly three years, has emerged as the ringleader of a backbench plot to force May to step down. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the solution to the leadership crisis was not “to bury our heads in the sand”.

Shapps said he had the support of about 30 MPs, including five former cabinet ministers, and suggested some cabinet ministers privately agreed but would be reluctant to back him because they were on the “payroll”.

Shapps said he had hoped to speak to the prime minister privately but the Tory party whips had unmasked him in the Times newspaper. He revealed that No 10 was aware of his discontent and had urged him not to go public.

He said the group of MPs supporting him included Brexiters and those who supported remaining in the European Union.

(Source: Tory ministers privately agree May should go, says Grant Shapps | Politics | The Guardian)

Unfortunately, the fact that it is Grant Shapps, and that his own reputation isn’t spotless, means some are already seeing this as a storm in a teacup:

This Site has already commented on reports that Mrs May was being “bullied” towards resignation by Boris Johnson, with Conservative donors saying she should stand down.

Twitter has, of course, been full of gossip about the latest crisis to hit to Tories:

 

It’s all very enjoyable for those of us who aren’t Conservatives, but it is worth reminding everybody that this is a dangerous distraction at a time when the United Kingdom – as a world economy – is extremely vulnerable.

Just by having a debate about Mrs May’s leadership, the Tories have caused another run on the value of Sterling:

Brexit represents huge threats to the UK, as does the underlying economic weakness of the country due to Conservative mismanagement.

A leadership election and the arrival of a replacement will not lead to any improvement in these serious issues.

The only solution is the resignation of the Tories and the election of a Labour government that is prepared for these challenges.
