Tone-deaf Truss backtracks – but not far enough – on warplanes for Ukraine call

Headbangers: Liz ‘War Head’ Truss and Dominic ‘Air Head’ Raab.

Don’t get your hopes up – she hasn’t learned her lesson.

Instead of demanding that the UK send warplanes to Ukraine – thereby provoking Vladimir Putin to nuke us until we glow, Liz Truss is now suggesting that we merely send the parts.

So now she wants us to send self-assembly kit planes to the eastern Europe conflict. How is that better?

It seems War Head Liz has been reminded that Nato policy is not to provoke Putin; the United States recently vetoed a Polish plan to deliver fighter jets for that very reason.

But she – and Air Head Dominic Raab, it seems – is still calling for western nations to declare in as loud a way as possible that they are helping Ukraine.

So my question remains: what is wrong with these people?

If they want to help a beleaguered fellow nation, then they can do it in the tried and tested way – covertly. They send it by secret routes and they don’t talk about it.

Blathering loudly and continually that they are ignoring Putin’s threats and will do whatever the hell they like will only attract harm.

Perhaps that is what Truss and Raab and the rest of the Tory headbangers really want.

Somebody please shut Liz Truss’s mouth before she gets us all bombed

Warmonger Liz: the foreign secretary has been rattling the sabre too loudly at Vladimir Putin when any conflict between the UK and Russia would be like sending this toy tank out to shoot down a nuclear missile.

Q. When a maniac with his finger on the nuclear button is warning that sending weapons to help another country will be an act of war, what do you do?

A. You remove Liz Truss from public view because she will instantly decide that it’s a good idea to dare him.

That’s right – after Vladimir Putin said he would consider it an act of war if western countries send aid to Ukraine, Truss is saying we should provide warplanes.

She’s a lunatic.

The sensible course of action for any national government wishing to help a beleaguered fellow nation is to provide that aid covertly. In fact, the UK has already been accused of this, with Russia alleging an SAS operation has taken place.

But of course, with no proof, any government has what’s known as plausible deniability. We can say any claims are nonsense and we wouldn’t dream of it.

Truss should follow the example of an alleged 56 fellow MPs – on all sides of the House of Commons – who find it extremely easy to hide their alleged sexual misconduct from us all.

Who will confirm what Boris Johnson said about BBC coverage of the Ukraine war?

What did he say? If evidence emerges that Boris Johnson did attack BBC coverage of the Ukraine war, and then deliberately lied about it in the House of Commons, it will be clear proof that he deliberately misled Parliament and he’ll have to resign – especially after pointing out that there are rules to prevent such dishonesty, only minutes later.

Has Boris Johnson just dug another hole for himself?

In Prime Minister’s Questions yesterday (April 20), Keir Starmer demanded an apology from Johnson for alleged claims made in a private meeting with Conservative MPs on Tuesday (April 19), when he was trying to build support after being fined for attending an illegal lockdown-busting Downing Street party.

Starmer reckoned Johnson attacked the BBC’s coverage of the war in Ukraine. He said:

The Prime Minister … accused the BBC of not being critical enough of Putin. Would the Prime Minister have the guts to say that to the faces of Clive Myrie, Lyse Doucet and Steve Rosenberg, who have all risked their lives day in, day out on the frontline in Russia and Ukraine uncovering Putin’s barbarism?

Here’s Johnson’s response:

I said nothing of the kind. I have the highest admiration, as a journalist and a former journalist, for what journalists do. I think they do an outstanding job. I think he should withdraw what he just said, because it has absolutely no basis or foundation in truth.

But what did he say?

Anyone who can show that Johnson did, in fact, attack the BBC and its journalists in Ukraine will be able to show that Johnson has definitely and deliberately misled Parliament – very possibly not for the first time.

It has been suggested that Johnson is a compulsive liar who simply says whatever he thinks will get him out of trouble at any particular time, and then conveniently forgets his words – but that will not help him if, say, a recording of what he said in that private meeting comes to light (and This Writer understands that Tory MPs have been known to make recordings of these meetings).

Alternatively, it would be extremely helpful if anybody can prove that Johnson didn’t say what Starmer alleged.

It is the fact that the words were spoken in a private meeting, allowing Johnson to hide behind secrecy, that is damning him now.

Boris ‘let the bodies pile high in their thousands’ Johnson says he’s outraged over Ukraine

‘Let the bodies pile high’: we still don’t know whether Boris Johnson actually said it but we know that he agrees with the sentiment because, in the UK, due to Covid-19, the bodies have. Now he is attacking another world leader for causing similar carnage. Hypocrisy?

Are you finding this as hard to swallow as I am?

According to the BBC, Boris Johnson – the man who allegedly expressed his own comfort with the deaths of thousands of people in the UK – wants you to think he is appalled at the alleged mass deaths of civilians in Ukraine:

Mr Johnson has said the UK “will not stand by whilst this indiscriminate and unforgivable slaughter takes place”.

He added: “We are working to ensure those responsible are held to account. We will not rest until justice is done.”

What is he saying, then?

That it is all right to make decisions that result in the deaths of thousands of people – if those people are fellow citizens of your country – but it’s wrong if they’re foreigners?

Call me picky if you like, but I tend to think that any leader who makes decisions that kill thousands of people (and let’s remember that Boris Johnson absolutely and certainly falls into that category) has failed in their most fundamental duty.

We already knew Johnson was a hypocrite, but this is genocidal hypocrisy.

Russia-Ukraine peace talks shift to sovereignty and territorial integrity

Not talking yet: but a meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the war between those two countries is edging closer.

Peace talks between Ukraine and Russia will shift onto subjects of “sovereignty and territorial integrity” after apparent agreement was reached over membership of Nato and nuclear weapons.

It seems the talks will focus on the future of the breakaway Donbas region and ownership of the Crimean peninsula.

According to Sky News,

Russia has claimed its main focus has shifted to taking control of the eastern Donbas region, an apparent pullback from its initial more ambitious goals, but one which is raising fears of a divided Ukraine.

This Writer still cannot see Ukraine accepting that in any way. A split Donbas region won’t solve the problems there.

A better alternative would be to hold referenda among the people there, allowing them to decide whether to be Ukrainian, Russian or independent.

And Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy isn’t averse to referenda; he has signalled willingness to ask his people whether to declare neutrality and stay out of Nato, in a significant step forward towards peace.

Given their shared experience, Israeli politicians’ treatment of Zelenskyy is shocking

Volodymyr Zelenskyy: given his shared experience with members of the Israeli Knesset – losing members of their families to the Nazi Holocaust – their reaction to him is shockingly hypocritical.

How many layers of meaning do we have to peel away to understand the disdain shown by Israel’s political leaders to Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy?

Was it because he harboured the openly-Nazi Azov Battalion – and sent them into the breakaway Donbas region of eastern Ukraine where they could indulge their love of attacking people who aren’t ethnically Russian?

Wouldn’t that be hypocritical in the light of Israel’s treatment of Palestinian people?

Was it because of an alleged tacit deal in which Moscow looks the other way when Israel bombs Hezbollah targets in Syria, so Israel neglects to condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war?

The excuse they fell back on – the usual one – certainly didn’t cut the mustard; they took offence because Zelenskyy compared Putin’s apparent attempt to wipe Ukraine off the map with the Nazi attempt at genocide of the Jews:

“We are in different countries and in completely different conditions,” he said. “But the threat is the same: for both us and you, the total destruction of the people, state, culture. And even of the names: Ukraine, Israel.”

He topped it off by quoting former Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, who was born in Kyiv, saying: “We intend to remain alive. Our neighbours want to see us dead. This is not a question that leaves much room for compromise.”

Members of the Israeli Knesset weren’t going to help Zelenskyy or Ukraine, so they resorted to a common tactic – pretending to have been attacked:

Communications Minister Yoaz Hendel said: “The war [in Ukraine] is awful, but the comparison to the atrocities of the Holocaust and the final solution is an outrage.”

The Likud MP Yuval Steinitz (Likud) said: “…had the speech that was given by Zelensky… been given during normal times, we would say that it borders on Holocaust denial.”

That’s a shocking slur against a Jewish man whose own relatives were killed by Nazis during the same Holocaust.

It seems the UK isn’t the only nation having its hypocrisies exposed by the war in Ukraine.

Why is this fact about the Russian attack on Mariupol being withheld from you?

The Azov Battalion’s flag: it features a Wolfsangel and a Black Sun – two symbols associated with Nazism.

It’s in the news all the time at the moment: the Russian attack on the Ukrainian city of Mariupol.

The violence. The atrocities. The possibility of Putin using chemical and biological weapons.

But do you know why Mariupol is so important to the Russian president? It may have gone past you because the BBC (to name just one news provider) certainly doesn’t include it in its reports, even though it should. Withholding this one fact shows a shocking bias.

Mariupol is the home base of the Nazi Azov Battalion.

Putin has made it clear that he intends to “de-Nazify” Ukraine, whose president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has publicly taken offence to the suggestion.

But Zelenskyy has absorbed the Azov Battalion into his armed forces (it became part of the Ukrainian National Guard in 2014 and Zelenskyy has done nothing to remove it).

You can read a large amount of detail about these Nazis here. It includes details of the Azov Battalion’s many incursions into the Donbas region to attack separatists there who wish to secede from Ukraine – and of war crimes committed by its members.

No legitimate and responsible national government would ever allow creatures like this to act for it. But Zelenskyy has.

I’m not saying that Russia is right to invade Ukraine, and anyone making such a claim will get the response they deserve.

It would also be wrong to portray Ukraine as valiant heroes fighting a ruthless oppressor when Ukraine numbers these Nazis among its armed forces.

This conflict must not be seen in black and white, “heroes against villains”, terms.

In this matter, Putin has a very good point.

Ukraine: Johnson’s conference comparison is doubly hypocritical because of his Russian links

Duper’s delight again: either Boris Johnson is a hypocrite, praising Ukraine but supporting Russia – or he was deceiving his party faithful by saying he wants Ukraine to suffer a disaster at least as great as the effect of Brexit on UK citizens.

Yes, it was disgusting when Boris Johnson got on his hind legs at the Conservative Spring Conference and said Ukraine was like the referendum decision for the UK to leave the EU:

Ukraine is trying to join the European Union. Somebody needs to tell Johnson that before he sticks his size-13s in his mouth again.

Former European Council president Donald Tusk said the words “offend Ukrainians, the British and common sense”.

Even some Conservatives had the sense to condemn Johnson’s ill-chosen words:

Tory chairman of the Defence Select Committee Tobias Ellwood said Mr Johnson’s comparison “damages the standard of statecraft” being exhibited in the response to the invasion.

The comment was hugely hypocritical because Brexit has been a disaster for a majority of UK citizens; we have to deal with increased bureaucracy and higher prices as a result of the trade barriers that Johnson raised.

And just ask the people of Ireland (Northern and the Republic) how they feel about the NI Protocol.

But it’s worse than that!

Johnson is doubly hypocritical because he talks about supporting Ukraine’s fight for freedom but acts in support of Russia.

It has just been revealed that – on the night Vladimir Putin’s forces invaded Ukraine – Johnson attended a fundraising event with a Russian donor to the Conservative Party who has connections with the Russian president.

He was joined by Defence Secretary Ben Wallace and communities secretary Michael Gove, and all guests reportedly enjoyed expensive wine, food and an auction.

Labour chairwoman Annaliese Dodds branded Johnson a “threat to national security” – and she’s right. Who knows what our loose-lipped prime minister might have said?

Who knows whether he still talks to Putin-supporting Russians now and what he says if he does?

Then he stands in front of his party faithful and praises Ukraine’s struggle for freedom by comparing it with the worst disaster to be deliberately inflicted on the UK in more than 80 years.

Hmm. Perhaps he’s not such a hypocrite after all – if he’s really saying he wants Ukraine to sink as fast as the UK has after Brexit.

Russia and Ukraine may be close to agreement on key peace issues

Meeting: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin will have to meet to cement a peace deal. They aren’t at that point yet – but is it far away?

Russia and Ukraine are coming close to a peace deal on four key issues, according to Turkey, which is acting as a facilitator for talks.

Russia’s demand for Ukraine to renounce ambitions to join NATO, demilitarisation, what Russia has referred to as “de-nazification”, and the protection of the Russian language in Ukraine are the issues on which the two sides are edging towards agreement.

But it’s being said that a deal can only be clinched after a face-to-face meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

This can’t happen until the two nations see eye-to-eye on the status of disputed regions: the Donbas (Donetsk and Luhansk) and the Crimea. And that hasn’t happened yet.

But it may happen soon.

There is hope for peace – even amid the reports of deaths, destruction and atrocities.

Tory Braverman slammed over immigration, Lebedev and Abramovich

Suella Braverman: another cringeworthy performance.

UK Attorney General Suella Braverman took a pummelling from the public and other panellists on the BBC’s Question Time over the Conservative government’s contradictory attitudes.

The Tories claim to want Ukrainian refugees while making it hard for them to enter the country, and claim to be sanctioning Russian oligarchs while actually giving them all the help they could want to keep their assets from being frozen or removed.

Braverman argued in favour of the heavy number of checks on refugees – but with half of those seeking entrance to the UK being children, does her claim that they are needed to prevent terrorist attacks really ring true?

Labour’s Wes Streeting pointed out what we all know about Boris Johnson’s relationship with now-Lord Lebedev – that the prime minister ignored advice from the security services that they were unhappy with his nomination to the House of Lords and put him there anyway. Challenged to refute the claim, Braverman evaded the issue.

And Streeting also pointed out that sanctions against Russian oligarchs in the UK act so slowly that Roman Abramovich was able to remove all his assets before they bit.

As even former Torygraph editor Max Hastings said, “The Conservative Party’s relationship with Russian oligarchs is a badge of shame for this country.”
