With two million GCSE results set to be downgraded, let’s see employers, schools and colleges tell the Tories to get stuffed

Exams: GCSE students didn’t take them this year, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t worked hard. The Tories are (again) planning to penalise pupils who didn’t go to private schools, for no other reason than that. Let’s see employers and educators ignore their prejudiced downgrade.

It seems the Tories haven’t learned their lesson from the ‘A’ level results scandal and are planning to repeat their stunt next week with GCSE results.

Gavin Williamson is looking forward to downgrading the results of two million school pupils based, not on the results they are expected to get, but on the fact that they didn’t go to an expensive private school.

Of course this represents a serious and bitter injustice that Williamson will perpetrate for no other reason than because he can.

It represents Tory prejudice against people from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds, with the least privileged expected to fare the worst, no matter how intelligent they are or hard they have worked.

That is Tory ignorance for you. Amazingly, Williamson and his ilk were voted into Parliament by the parents of many of the children whose futures will be irreparably harmed.

Williamson is hiding behind a claim that the results are determined by a mechanical algorithm – but he is neglecting to admit that the algorithm was written to reflect Williamson’s own prejudice, that pupils at private schools must be placed above the hoi-polloi, no matter how stupid and undeserving the toffs’ children may be.

The Tories aren’t going to change. It is their agenda to push your children’s faces into the mud while their brats stand on their backs to bask in the sun.

It is up to others to reject what Williamson is doing – that means schools, colleges and employers.

If a pupil at a state school fails to receive the required grades to get the further education place they want, or the job for which they have applied, because the government arbitrarily lowered their grade, then it is the moral responsibility of those businesses and institutions to side with the student.

And I think we need to see those organisations say as much – now.

Let’s have the reassurance for GCSE students that employers and universities denied to their ‘A’ level counterparts.

I’ve already called for a boycott of Tory-supporting organisations after the ‘A’ level fiasco.

Let’s see who won’t stand with the kids and give them the same cold-shoulder treatment. Do you agree?

Chief Rabbi’s rant condemned as ‘political’ and ‘ideological’ ‘propaganda’

Ephraim Mirvis: His outburst about Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party has been condemned as ‘political’ and ‘ideological’ ‘propaganda’.

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis’s attack on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has been decisively debunked by the UK Rabbinical Executive of the United European Jews.

This may be unsurprising, as the organisation arises from True Torah Jews, a group that was set up to oppose Zionism – and Mr Mirvis is a Zionist of what we may consider an extreme nature.

United European Jews, as an organisation, is concerned that Zionism endangers Jews across the world.

In a letter to the Labour leader, Rabbi Mayer Weinberger writes as follows:

“I write to you on behalf of the Executive Board of the United European Jews organisation regarding an unusually disturbing declaration that was … reported in the media claiming that the overwhelming majority of British Jews are “gripped by anxiety” at the prospect of a Labour victory in the forthcoming general election.

“Please not that we totally reject and condemn in no uncertain terms these remarks, which [do] not represent the views of the mainstream chareidi Jews that live in the UK.

“We believe that such assertions are due to propaganda with a political and ideological agenda. An agenda which, I might add, is diametrically opposed to fundamental Jewish values as well as the opinions of tens of thousands of Jews in our community.

“At this time, we also relay our gratefulness for your numerous acts of solidarity with the Jewish community over many years and also welcome your assurances that Labour will do everything necessary to defend the Jewish way of life and protect our rights to practise our religion.

“For all this, we take this opportunity to say: Thank you! Mr Corbyn.”

At the very least, this shows that opinion about Mr Corbyn and the Labour Party in the Jewish community as far less conclusive than Mr Mirvis – and the Tory-supporting UK media – would have us believe.

This Site issued a reminder yesterday that Mr Mirvis is a dyed-in-the-wool Conservative, a friend of Boris Johnson, and a Zionist who supports the bombing of Palestinians (based on his own words in the past).

But you can’t expect to hear about this on the UK’s highly-partisan mainstream news media. So please share it yourself.

Did you think the Tories would stop hurting children just because there’s an election? Think again

Kori: This eight-year-old boy had a heart transplant last year, but his body is rejecting it. The Tory-run DWP doesn’t care, though. It has cancelled his disability benefit and left him to fend for himself.

Say hi to Kori.

Kori is eight years old. Last year he had a heart transplant – but it wasn’t a wonderful success.

His body is rejecting the new heart and he is fighting for his life in hospital.

And what have the Tories done?

They have cancelled Kori’s claim for Disability Living Allowance and his family’s Motability car.

Their reason: Kori is “as fit as any other child his age”.

Take a look at the photograph. Do you think that’s accurate?

Friends of Kori and his family have launched a crowdfunding page to help them cope with the loss of their means of support.

You can contribute to it by visiting this website.

Please do – you can be sure the Tories won’t want to help at all.

They won’t care what happens to Kori – despite the fact that they have a duty of care towards him.

They’re too busy planning new tax breaks for their rich friends – if we’re stupid enough to elect them again.

MPs reject Brexit bill timetable – they’re not worried about Johnson calling an election

Boris Johnson: He may have just realised he has miscalculated.

What did I tell you?

MPs have rejected a proposal to examine Boris Johnson’s Brexit bill in the Commons in three days.

The Commons supported the Withdrawal Agreement Bill earlier, but have now voted against the short timetable.

Earlier, the PM warned he would seek an election if MPs dismissed the plan and the EU granted an extension to 31 October Brexit deadline.

After the vote, he told the Commons he would “pause” the legislation until the EU had “stated their intentions”.

Johnson humiliated as EU’s point-by-point rejection of NI proposals is leaked

Clown: Boris Johnson – as the EU’s officials no doubt consider him.

How sad for Boris Johnson – and how amusing for the rest of us (and let’s face it, with Brexit, we have to get our giggles where we can).

A copy of the European Union’s rejection of Boris Johnson’s proposals for the Irish border after Brexit has been leaked to The Guardian.

It is humiliating for BoJob as it confirms that he is in the top flight in only one respect: that he is a nincompoop.

Would you like to read them?

Of course you would:

The European Union’s full devastating point-by-point rejection of Boris Johnson’s Brexit proposals for the Irish border has been revealed in documents obtained by the Guardian.

The confidential report chronicling the latest negotiations reveals:

  • The British have been warned that the proposed Stormont veto provides the DUP with an opportunity to block the all-Ireland regulatory zone from ever materialising.
  • The proposals for a customs border were said to risk a major disruption of the all-Ireland economy. EU negotiators have pointed out that it has been rejected by groups representing Northern Irish business.
  • The UK is seeking a fallback of no controls, checks and border infrastructure, even if the DUP vetoes Northern Ireland’s alignment with the single market. The bloc’s internal market would be left wide open for abuse, the European commission has said in its rejection of the proposal.
  • The UK’s proposal leaves it up to a joint EU-UK committee to work out how to avoid customs checks and infrastructure near the Irish border once there are two customs territories and sets of rules on the island of Ireland, without offering a plan B if no such solution is agreed.
  • The UK has called for an overhaul of the common transit convention so as to avoid the need for new infrastructure in the shape of transit offices on either side of the border for the scanning of goods that have passed through multiple territories. Brussels has refused as it would lead other non-EU countries to seek similar exemptions, endangering the internal market.
  • The text affords what is seen as an unacceptable wholesale exemption for small and medium-sized businesses from customs duties and processes, but it fails to provide details on how to then combat smuggling.
  • On VAT, the British negotiators were told that the proposals fail to offer any solutions as to how to avoid payments and checks at the border.
  • Under the UK’s proposals all the state aid and level-playing-field conditions Theresa May agreed to in order to reassure the EU that Northern Ireland businesses would not enjoy a competitive advantage have been deleted. But Northern Irish firms would still be able to compete in the single market for electricity.
  • The UK would have access to an unlisted number of EU databases to allow it to police the customs border on the island of Ireland and the regulatory border between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Whitehall would maintain such access even if the DUP vetoed alignment with the single market.

Johnson rejects call to recall Parliament over Brexit

It is as This Writer said: the number of MPs calling for Boris Johnson to recall Parliament was not enough to convince him to do it.

His spokeswoman specifically referred to the number of MPs who supported the motion to return on September 3.

The implication is clear: 110 MPs demanding recall cannot beat more than 500 who supported the recess until that date.

It’s a lesson the Liberal Democrats would do well to learn.

At a briefing on Monday, the prime minister’s spokeswoman said there were no plans to do so.

“The House of Commons agreed the date it would rise for summer recess, as well as its return on 3 September, and this was passed by a majority of close to 200 MPs,” she said.

Police service rejects new powers lowering bar for stop and search

West Midlands Police was among the services included in a pilot scheme to lower the level of authorisation needed for stop-searches – but didn’t take up the extension of powers at all.

Police and crime commissioner David Jamieson said Home Secretary Priti Patel’s decision to expand the pilot scheme nationwide suggested she had not bothered to examine its findings.

He said West Midlands police did not use the extra powers because they didn’t need to – and condemned the extension announcement as an attempt to get headlines ahead of an election.

Amazingly, considering his comments, the Home Office has asserted that all forces involved in the pilot had said they are “using some or both”* of the relaxed restrictions on powers.

West Midlands police have refused to take up an offer of new powers to make it easier for officers to conduct stop and searches.

The force was included in a pilot scheme to lower the level of authorisation needed for such searches, but data shows officers still sought approval from assistant chief constables.

Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act allows officers to search anyone in a designated area without suspicion for a defined period if police anticipate serious violence.

On Sunday the home secretary, Priti Patel, announced a nationwide extension of the pilot scheme lowering the authorisation needed for a section 60 from a senior officer to an inspector.

If you think the Lib Dem leaflet campaign in B&R wasn’t toxic, consider this

Jane Dodds: The backcloth behind her says “Demand better” – and that’s exactly what her new constituents want.

It seems some social media users don’t believe This Writer’s claim that the so-called DemDeluge that flooded Brecon and Radnorshire letterboxes with unwanted Liberal Democrat leaflets was harmful to that party’s reputation.

Okay – don’t just take my word for it, because there’s plenty of evidence elsewhere. For example, consider the following collection of comments from the Facebook page of local newspaper the Brecon and Radnor Express:

“Hurray! No more Lib Dem leaflets to put in the recycling bin, this election has caused me a great deal of stress and extra work recycling all of those pesky Lib Dem leaflets.”

“No more paper to … bin from Dodds woman who we[‘ll] never see again.”

“Thank God for that!!!”

“I need an extra blue bin this week.”

“I’ll have to start buying toilet paper again.”

“There will be one in the morning!”

“The amout of money they have wasted on these leaflets must have cost a a fortune, and it’s shameful. I send all mine back with no stamp.”

In response to another article:

“She’s probably spent more time and money on her leaflets and posters than she will [on] her constituency.”

“Please no more leaflets” begged one commenter.

“Don’t worry, if you live in Brecon and Radnor its the last you’ll hear of her!!!!!!” was the response.

Then: “If only you were joking. No-one heard of her before this by-election and we won’t until she wants re-elected.”

Another irate voter made an important point, aimed at the new MP, Jane Dodds: “You only won because Chris Davies represented the Conservatives. If anyone else was put there and I mean anyone you would have lost by a couple of thousand votes. You are a remain party when Wales voted leave. You don’t represent the Welsh voice at all.”

Responding to another article, one person wrote: “If the conservatives had put forward a different candidate this result would not have happened! Jane Dodds has bombarded the poor people in Brecon and Radnorshire for weeks and I feel is boarding on harassment! She does not speak for the majority of us!”

And after yet another article, a commenter stated of Ms Dodds: “She is a ghastly woman! This is bad news for Brecon and Radnorshire!”

Another added: “Ghastly, arrogant & patronizing.”

And another concluded: “After all the doorstep bulls**t and bothering you now have to deliver. We’ll see.”

Perhaps Lib Dem campaigners are protesting just a little too much for their MP’s popularity.

Jeremy Corbyn: STAND FIRM against demands to outsource anti-Semitism investigations

Jeremy Corbyn is clearly not an enemy of Jewish people.

As the shadow cabinet prepares to meet today (July 22) to discuss criticisms over the way Labour has handled anti-Semitism complaints, This Site says to Jeremy Corbyn: STAND FIRM.

Right-wingers in the party are calling for the leadership to outsource handling of anti-Semitism complaints to an “independent” body – but nobody has actually named that body.

So who will it be?

Could it be the Jewish Labour Movement, whose members illicitly recorded Jackie Walker at a so-called “safe space” meeting at which attendees were encouraged to discuss concerns that may be considered questionable – and then handed a version of that recording to a newspaper as evidence of anti-Semitism, in an appalling display of bad faith?

That would not be acceptable.

Nor could Labour hand the matter over to the Board of Deputies of British Jews – because of political bias. It is possible that findings would be rigged to harm the Labour Party for political reasons.

And the so-called charity, the Campaign Against Antisemitism is the last organisation that could ever be considered, as it has been responsible for fabricating claims – I know, as This Writer was one of its victims.

The simple fact is that Labour does not have a problem with anti-Semites going unpunished. The problem is the persecution of innocent – and decent – party members.

So, to Mr Corbyn, This Writer says: RESIST demands to outsource anti-Semitism investigations because this will only worsen the problem. Seek advice from lawyers and reform party processes in line with national law. And scrap the National Constitutional Committee’s power of expulsion, which has been abused by biased panel chairpeople.

Theresa May has not only humiliated herself in Europe – she has humiliated us ALL. Politically, she is a dead woman walking

Not a stateswoman: The facial expression says it all.

I don’t think I have to comment much on this one. I’ll just let everybody else do the talking – starting with Donald Tusk:

If you’re wondering what this means, here’s Paul Mason:

But let’s not take his word at face value. Theresa May had something to say about it:

And this is what The Independent had to say about that:

It was the lowest moment of her premiership thus far, and that very much includes the time she was being openly mocked by a lord with a bucket on his head.

When [Theresa May] stands on stage at a press conference, her teeth gnashing, her eyes wide and wild, as if everything has gone utterly terribly wrong and she hasn’t got the first clue what she is going to do about it, then you can be absolutely sure it’s because everything has indeed gone utterly terribly wrong, and she hasn’t got the first clue what she is going to do about it.

https://twitter.com/sketchaganda/status/1042785122171465730

That Theresa May was reduced to a brittle husk of anger is because this kind of pure frustration emerges only when you know there is no one left to blame. No one else at whom the finger can be pointed, because the defeat is entirely your fault.

She had been humiliated, and then she was forced to humiliate herself. She had thought this informal summit of EU leaders in Salzburg would be the final breakthrough on an exit deal from the European Union.

But there has been no breakthrough. There is still a chasm of empty space between her red lines and the European Union’s. The question of the Irish border appears unresolvable.

Either Northern Ireland stays in the single market and the customs union, or the whole of the UK does, or there is no deal. None of these options are satisfactory for the UK.

A customs border in the Irish Sea, whilst humiliating in any circumstances, is simply impossible when your government depends on Northern Irish MPs because you squandered your parliamentary majority.

Of course, everyone had an opinion about it:

And my opinion? What do I think?

I think it’s over.

Mrs May cannot devise a scheme that will reconcile the wishes of the hard Brexiters in her party with those of the DUP and the EU 27.

She has steered the UK up a cul-de-sac, and now she has run out of gas. There is no way back from this.

Her ministers will not accept anything she brings back from Salzburg, let alone Parliament as a whole.
