#BorisJohnson says he’ll #resign if he broke #MinisterialCode on parties. There’s just one problem…

Read this:

Boris Johnson has admitted he will resign as Prime Minister if he is found to have broken the Ministerial Code and misled Parliament over lockdown parties in No 10.

Great! We know he has misled Parliament over those lockdown parties because after he told us no such parties took place, he has had to admit that he attended several of them.

So he’ll be resigning shortly – right?

Well…

It depends on whether he is found to have broken the Ministerial Code.

And who decides whether a government minister has broken the Code?

That’s a decision for the Prime Minister: Boris Johnson.

Turning advisors into #scapegoats won’t help #BorisJohnson – for these obvious reasons

His only working strategy: Boris Johnson hasn’t thought through his plan to sack all the advisors who know all the rules he has been breaking since he became prime minister. What does he think they will do?

Boris Johnson is the stupidest prime minister the UK has had in decades if he thinks sacking his top team will help him.

These are the people who know everything that has been going in in Johnson’s corrupt Tory administration since he became prime minister in 2019. They have the keys to all the cupboards where the skeletons are buried.

After Dominic Cummings, Johnson should know that it is much better for him to have people inside his tent – if you will forgive the expression, pissing out, than outside it, pissing in.

Personally, This Writer cannot wait to hear the stories that will come out in the weeks and months after any such boneheaded move by Johnson.

#DowningStreetParties: ANOTHER one is revealed as 35 Tory MPs hand in ‘no confidence’ notes

Party boy: this image is from an electioneering event before the Covid-19 crisis and the liquid in the glass was water (we’re told). And that’s just as well for attendees; if it was one of Johnson’s lockdown-busting parties and they were staff members, he would be demanding that they resign their jobs in order to save his own skin.

It’s being reported that 35 Conservative MPs have submitted letters of ‘no confidence’ in Boris Johnson’s leadership – and more are sure to follow after it was revealed that he attended another Downing Street party.

It seems Johnson went to a leaving party for defence advisor Captain Steve Higham in December 2020 – one that it seems unlikely he’ll be able to deny, because he gave a speech at it.

The revelation is more proof of Johnson’s personal corruption: he set rules for the rest of us that meant we could not socialise at Christmas, or even visit our relatives who were dying of Covid-19, but he was merrily boozing it up with his party mates all the time.

It really was one rule for us and no rules at all for him.

And his own MPs are getting increasingly sick of it. It’s being said that 35 of them have now submitted letters calling for a challenge to Johnson’s leadership because they have no confidence in him.

Six leading Tories – Douglas Ross, Andrew Bridgen, Sir Roger Gale, William Wragg, Tim Loughton and Caroline Nokes – are demanding Johnson’s immediate resignation.

Johnson is fighting back – with plans to pacify his backbenchers by offering them things they want, no matter how bad they are for the UK. So the NHS will suffer more privatisation so shareholders in private companies can have more public money in their back pockets; the BBC licence fee will be ended so it will be destroyed in its current form, and so on.

And he is planning a Hitler-style “Night of the Long Knives” in which members of his top team will be sacked – so he can pretend to be doing something to address the rot in Downing Street.

It won’t work because we know the rot is being caused by him.

Even his attempts to shift the blame sound pathetic. He is alleged to have moaned to his aides, asking, “How has all this been allowed to happen? How has it come to this? How haven’t you sorted it out?”

The simple answers are: “Johnson authorised it all. People talked about it. And nobody could have stopped it but him… and he was too busy whooping it up.”

So it will be entirely unfair – but entirely within character – for Johnson to demand that his employees take the blame for his own wrongdoing.

One MP (unnamed) is quoted comparing it with Hitler’s “Night of the Long Knives”.

He said: “Boris is preparing to lay down the lives of his staff to save his own… It will be the Night of the Long Scapegoats.”

Anybody who knows their history will be deeply troubled by this.

The Night of the Long Knives was a series of executions carried out by Hitler in 1934, to rid himself of political opponents and consolidate his rule of Germany; it made him more able to carry out his extremist agenda.

Any purge of his top team by Boris Johnson, although not nearly as homicidal, will have the same result; he will rid his government of advisors who would caution him against some of the extreme right-wing choices he is making and will bring in people who’ll support him to the hilt.

We have already learned that he is proposing an onslaught against the UK’s institutions and the rights of people living here or coming here, in order to appease the extremists on his own back benches.

If he gets away with it, the UK will slip further into the fascism that Johnson already represents.

It may even tip our nation over the brink into Nazism itself.

#OperationSaveBigDog? No, Tories. Take him to the vet & have him put down, for his sake and ours

Treacherous cur: Boris Johnson is pictured next to Martin Reynolds at the Downing Street garden party on May 15, 2020, a bottle of booze on the table next to them. Now, it seems Johnson wants Reynolds to take the rap for the parties, to save the prime minister’s pointless career.

It’s exactly as we all thought. Rather than accept responsibility for creating a culture of corruption at Downing Street in which employees were encouraged to have parties while the rest of the UK lived in isolation, Boris Johnson is going to scapegoat the staff.

It seems he has drawn up a list of colleagues he intends to throw under the bus in order to save his own worthless career.

They include Martin Reynolds, the private secretary who invited 100 people to a party in the Downing Street garden on May 20, 2020 and with whom Johnson is pictured at a party in the Downing Street garden on May 15, 2020.

Apparently he’s calling it “Operation save Big Dog”. Here are the details.

One has to question why Johnson thinks pretending other people are responsible for the attitude of contempt for the rules that he created will help him – for a very obvious reason.

The latest story has it that Downing Street staff were having drinks parties every week during lockdown – as suggested by Johnson. The Mirror called it “Boris Johnson’s wine time Fridays“.

The staff scapegoating plan hasn’t gone down well among the political community:

… Or indeed among the public:

If I was one of the staff members being pressurised to quit so Boris Johnson can save a career that isn’t worth saving, I’d be handing my phone full of lockdown-busting party invitations to the investigators – after using it to call the Mirror, the Torygraph and all the other members of the press pack who are baying for prime ministerial blood.

This is one “Big Dog” who needs to be put out of our misery.

#ShaunBailey: Former London Mayor candidate quits police committee role after rule-busting Christmas party

Shaun Bailey: he was the Conservative candidate for Islamophobia, sexism and misogyny. Now he has resigned from a police committee after breaking rules on attending Christmas parties last year.

Remember Shaun Bailey?

I do.

He was the Tory racist and sexist who stood as their candidate in the London mayoral election that Sadiq Khan won.

Here‘s the BBC:

A former Conservative mayoral candidate who attended a Covid regulation-breaching Christmas party has quit as chair of a police and crime committee.

Shaun Bailey’s team organised the gathering at the Conservative Campaign Headquarters on 14 December 2020 when London was under Tier 2 restrictions banning household mixing.

He has now stepped down from the role but remains a member of the committee and the London Assembly.

Note that Bailey would have been quite happy to stay on the London Assembly’s Police and Crime committee if a photo of him at the rule-busting party had not been published in the Mirror.

And he’s happy to remain a member of the committee, even now!

These Tories. There’s not an ounce of integrity in any of them.

#AllegraStratton resigns. Will #BorisJohnson follow?

She’s not smiling now: Allegra Stratton has resigned her govenrment press role after a video emerged of her laughingly trying to work out how to cover up the Downing Street Christmas party of 2020.

Allegra Stratton has resigned over the video of her laughing and joking about the Downing Street Christmas party.

According to the BBC, she delivered a “tearful” statement in which she claimed she would “regret the remarks for the rest of my days”.

That says to me that she doesn’t regret being involved in an illegal event, or in the cover-up that followed.

No – she only regrets being caught.

She’ll undoubtedly try to squirrel herself away somewhere the Metropolitan Police can’t find her.

And there’s still no word from Cressida Dick about whether the Met will launch a criminal inquiry (which should have been ordered without a second thought).

They’d better get a statement plus contact details out of her double-quick.

Is the #DowningStreetParty a dead cat? No. And here’s the reason

Temper, temper: Boris Johnson thugging it up at the dispatch box (it doesn’t matter when).

A large number of our political agitators are voicing frustration at the relentless focus on a Christmas party that took place almost a year ago.

There are far more pressing matters happening right now, they say – like the Policing Bill, the Nationality and Borders Bill, the Health and Care Bill. These attack our fundamental rights as UK citizens and are likely to pass without comment because of the party.

Well… yes they are.

But there’s nothing the public can do about that now.

The choice was made in December 2019 when 14 million people voted Conservative against their better interests and Boris Johnson was installed in Downing Street as publicly-elected prime minister (he had only been elected by his own party previously).

Since then, the wider public have discovered what This Writer and many others of us in the media knew already – that Boris Johnson is a wrong ‘un; a liar, corrupt, and despotic.

The revelation that a Christmas Party took place at his residence, 10 Downing Street, on December 18 last year, when all such gatherings had been banned by Johnson himself, and Johnson’s subsequent lies about it – including at Prime Minister’s Questions today (December 8, 2021), demonstrate very clearly that he is not fit to rule.

Some are saying that he should be allowed to apologise and then we can move on with the other matters, because apologising weakens him somehow.

I don’t see it that way.

Apologising will merely allow this corrupt liar to continue spreading lies and corruption.

Resigning weakens the whole government and will bring demands for an election – because whoever replaces Johnson will not have a mandate from the electorate.

That’s why we need to see Johnson’s resignation, now.

Let’s remember that what his people (and possibly Johnson himself) did is utterly vile: they had a huge, joyful party while many of us were suffering and some were dying in isolation because their rules kept family members and loved ones away.

Johnson himself then joined with his staff and lied about the event. He knew a party had happened because it was in his own residence and his own staff were freely laughing and joking about it, days afterwards. It is unrealistic for him to suggest he was unaware.

The whole episode shows the contempt in which Johnson holds the people who voted him into power. He’s where he wanted to be, and the rest of us can die, alone and in misery. For that alone, he must be removed.

Paterson quits as MP – rather than face the wrath of his constituents?

Owen Paterson: he won his vote in Parliament, but did he already realise that it wouldn’t do him any good?

All that corruption for nothing!

After so much effort from his Tory colleagues to save him from a 30-day suspension that might lead to a by-election, Owen Paterson has gone the whole hog:

It seems he realised that he may face far more humiliation in a by-election than he does by simply bowing out gracelessly. And a few other calculations may have had something to do with it…

Yes indeed. Consider this:

Still, from his resignation speech, it seems a peek into his mind right now may reveal something like this:

I mean, he thinks politics has been cruel – to him!

Normally I would not be giving space to might-as-well-be-Tory Labour berk Wes Streeting, but even I have to admit he makes a good point here:

And here’s another:

Possibly the best issue to raise about this whole sad farrago is that of the erstwhile North Shropshire MP’s former sponsors:

Given the above information, there’s an important question to be asked (by Old Git, below):

But will the repercussions rumble on?

Aha! It seems Paterson may have a few secrets that may be worth something if he spills them.

Will he do a Dominic (Cummings) and stab his former boss in the back?

That would be fun, wouldn’t it?

Also in the news: Keir Starmer’s betrayals of Labour are coming back to bite him

Keir Starmer: he never looks sure of what he’s doing, does he? One has to wonder if he’s being worked from behind.

It’s looking bleak for Keir Starmer as unions and constituency Labour Party organisations turn against him.

Skwawkbox provides an excellent chronicle of the conflict in Labour between the socialists who represent the soul of the party and the right-wing entryists, led by Starmer, who are working hard to wreck it, and This Site would like to direct you to the information that may be found there, such as the following:

Bootle Labour Party demands Starmer’s resignation over S**m column

The operative part of this is the wording of the motion that has won unanimous support from Bootle CLP:

Bootle CLP strongly condemns the party leader Sir Keir Starmer for his decision to renege on his promise to the people of Merseyside made during his leadership election campaign, to not speak to the S*n newspaper.

Therefore Bootle CLP calls for the resignation of the Leader of the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer, on the grounds we no longer have any confidence in his leadership, as he says one thing, and then does the other.

Socialist lawyers condemn Starmer for suspending new NCC member

Well, you can trust Starmer to do the dirty on the Labour left – but of course he would never admit it.

Still, isn’t it strange that, days before the election of a new chairperson for the party’s National Constitutional Committee, which is still its only quasi-judicial disciplinary body (even if it doesn’t work properly, as This Writer knows too well), its newest left-wing member was suddenly suspended under suspicious circumstances.

Rheian Davies

who is a solicitor and a member of the [Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers], was suspended by Labour last week over years-old and entirely accurate posts on social media and in a private group.

The Haldane Society posted a statement on Twitter condemning the attack by Starmer and his administrative sidekick David Evans on Ms Davies and on member democracy… In February, Haldane banned Keir Starmer from membership, saying that he was ineligible because he is ‘demonstrably not a socialist’ and condemned him ‘in the strongest possible terms’ for his conduct since winning the Labour leadership election on a set of false promises.

Starmer fights £20 weekly Universal Credit cut with plan to ‘pause’ VAT – saving 35p per week per person

Perhaps Starmer thinks we should be grateful that he – well, Rachel Reeves actually – has finally announced a policy. But it’s a stinker!

The party plans to ‘pause’ VAT on fuel in response to soaring energy costs. But VAT on fuel is at 5% and the average energy bill for a family of four adults at the moment is around £30 a week.

At a 5p saving in the pound, that’s just £1.50 per week – or 35p a week for each of the four household members.

Starmer’s other idea is a cut in business rates. Businesses pay 20% VAT and most can claim this back in full routinely anyway.

Care workers are treated like dirt by the Tories. No wonder they’re quitting

We thought this window-writing was by a child in care. It seems it might have been by a carer instead.

Here‘s another crisis the Conservative government has created for itself:

Desperately needed social care staff are quitting their jobs to work in the tourism and hospitality sector because they are ‘burnt out’, the sector has warned.

Exhausted staff are leaving the key worker roles to fill shortages in other sectors, as pubs and restaurants struggle to find enough staff.

Urgent action is needed to stop a “tsunami of unmet need” rippling across essential services this winter, the care regulator has warned.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) says health and care staff are “exhausted and depleted” and working under intense levels of pressure.

The vacancy rate in care homes has steadily grown to reach 10.2% as of September – meaning in a year’s time one in 10 care home staff will not be in that job, the CQC said.

And what’s the Conservative government’s response? Make those who are left work harder.

It’s shocking – and ridiculous at the same time. Watch Peter Stefanovic’s video to grasp the full meaning of what Tory minister Gillian Keegan was backed into saying:

For fairness, here’s more of that interview, without interruptions:

I wouldn’t be surprised if every care worker who saw those clips – or the full interview when it was screened – quit their job at once.

It is clear that they aren’t valued and will simply be worked until they drop – and then blamed for the holes in the care system they leave behind.
