‘Thanks, PM’ says Sunak – and a nation gags on its biscuits

I didn’t witness this travesty myself – I was doing something more important, like washing what’s left of my hair.

You have the social media to thank for what follows, therefore.

It seems that, during their broadcast to explain (ha ha!) their new Covid Alert Levels, Boris Johnson handed over the proceedings to Rishi Sunak. Here’s what happened next:

But it wasn’t Batman and Robin – it was more The Inbetweeners. See for yourself:

As the nation choked on its tea and biscuits, and tried to hold down its evening meal, the social media did their work and I am able to show you these further responses:

If it happened in any other country, the government would fall because of this.

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.

Hungarian leader thanks Tories for supporting his racism and anti-Semitism

Viktor Orban: Racists stick together, which is probably why he has written to thank the UK’s Conservative Party for supporting his racism and anti-Semitism in the European Parliament.

How embarrassing for our racist prime minister Theresa May, to be exposed as a supporter of another racist regime in such a blatant way.

Remember last week, when she was trying to distance herself from the vote in support of Viktor Orban’s racist and anti-Semite regime in Hungary, even though her MEPs were whipped to vote against the Article 7 censure of the activities of that nation’s government?

That has all fallen by the wayside in the light of the letter of thanks to Conservative MEPs from Mr Orban himself.

The official line from the Tories is that the letter was a ’round robin’, and nobody should draw any conclusions from it; the party voted against the motion of censure because leaders did not think it would work.

But Mrs May’s own record of racism – for example, against the Windrush generation – speaks against that.

And at a time when so much of the right-wing media has been devoted to a false attack on Labour over alleged anti-Semitism, it is deeply embarrassing for Mrs May to have been exposed as demanding support for an anti-Semite.

What next for the Conservative Party? Brown shirts? Burning crosses?

The Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orbán, has thanked Conservative MEPs for their “solidarity” in voting against European Union action to protect the rule of law in his country.

In a signed letter to MEPs who voted with his Fidesz party, Orbán expressed his appreciation of “the support you’ve shown towards national sovereignty and solidarity during the vote”.

The European parliament voted earlier this month to launch the EU’s sanction process against Hungary, after concluding there was “a clear risk of a serious breach” of the EU’s democratic values. Most British Conservative MEPs opposed the plan.

Based on the findings of international observers, a European parliament report on Hungary listed concerns about the erosion of judicial independence, decline of press freedom, growing corruption, increasing xenophobic attacks on migrants, including asylum seekers. It also accused Orbán of attacks on the billionaire philanthropist George Soros that included “clearly antisemitic stereotypes”.
