Its probably a major reason why Brexit has failed miserably beyond even the warnings

The Brexit pigs cant fly when they wont pull their snouts out of the trough long enough to achieve something other than enriching themselves, and all we ever see is the other end.

 

Taxpayer paid MP and paid more lobbyist Owen Patterson told sky news he:

 “wouldn’t hesitate” to act in the same manner “tomorrow” and that he continues to work with (for?) the two firms.

The MP said that the standards commissioner did not interview any of his 17 witnesses

 

and the 17 'witnesses (his paymasters and involved chums?) submitted written testimony - which was considered

The Frost/Beaune talks today could be interesting, Johnson's pitbull vs Macron's attack dog. Just when they thought the Brits were being a bit more constructive, we've gone back to the old script.

Brexit minister David Frost will defend current position despite hopes a more positive dynamic is emerging

More from D(r)owning (in sleeze) street:

 

Boris Johnson has admitted receiving a free holiday at a luxurious Spanish villa linked to Zac Goldsmith.

The property is marketed online for rentals, reportedly for as much as £25,000 a week

 

 

The register said: “The prime minister has a longstanding personal friendship with the Goldsmith family and, in that capacity, in October 2021 stayed in a holiday home in southern Spain which was provided free of charge by the Goldsmiths.

 

Johnson awarded (his  'longstanding personal friend') Goldsmith a peerage after the latter lost his Richmond seat in 2019, and allowed him to keep his job as an environment minister.

I guess everyone assumed that, TJ.

 

Meanwhile, talk on Twitter is that Paterson is about to resign. It seems the vote wasn't about him after all. Some are suggesting that it could be more about the standards commissioner investigating the redecorating of Downing Street soon.

Not just that HB, ALL the sleaze including PPE and awarding contracts to incompetent and not properly authorsied testin centers - let alone Johnson unlawfully proroguing parliament and lying at the dispatch box

It remains an attempt to get the sleaze investigations under sleazy liar Johnsons control

 

Paterson was just an excuse to try it on - if chancer Johnson got away with it - then win win.

The battle is still on.

I see that at long last there is real pressure for an independent investigation in cash for lobbying, cash for contracts,  and cash for peerages (which is undoubtedly why Paterson resigned - on the promise of a peerage when the heat died down enough)

£3million quid to the Tories _  a peerage and money from the UK taxpayer for life .. and ongoing opportunities for payments from businesses

 

Adding to wasted taxpayer money for a private showing of new bond film, holidays for peerages, flying from COP to a male only privileged lunch at a private club, millions to PPE pals who supply faulty recalled testing kit lobbied for by Paterson ... while Johnson says 'let the f***ing bodies pile high .....  the list literally goes on and on

@tobyjugg2    There is a very bad stench coming from this Government.

 

An investigation into how PPE contracts were awarded will be interesting ?

 

While the spotlight is on Government, I suspect paid lobbying by MP's and Lords will be found in other parties represented in Parliament.

We could do with some help from you.

Paid lobbying is corruption in all but name, and is corrosive to Democracy, Cardiff Senedd as bad if not worse as is more parochial, and chummy.

Add to that the reports that the populist whips threatened 'new' Tory MP's with them losing funding for their constituencies if they didn't vote as demanded

Blackmail? Further misuse of taxpayer funds?,  both +corruption?

and with reports that Frost is just stiring up trouble with the EU to cover for the corruption and abuses at home ..

I think its more complex than that

 

Johnson has nothing to lose and no morals. I think he's been looking to be kicked out for some time so he can walk away from the chaos he has generated

 

So If he starts a trade war with the EU he might think that

 

a) he can cover for his abuses, corruption and incompetence at home

I think he is wrong. The EU will completely cut off the UK while minimising the impact to the island of Ireland, so the main damage will be further damage to UK businesses - but Johnson has demonstrated he doesn't give a damn about that

 

b) The likely real fall back of a trade war with the EU

The UK will have little option but to bring forward all the changes Johnson wants for trade (what will we trade?) with the pacific region and start shipping in hormone injected and bleached chicken, beef and GM crops from America and Australia under 'emergency measures'

 

All of which will place the Uk as a powerless suplicant of the US, worse than we ever were @ WWII

 

No doubt he will try to include options in his 'emergency measures' to prevent Scotland and NI from seceding from the union.

seems a bit rich to me that the speaker, who allowed the amendment, is proposing his own changes

He doesn't even hold johnson to apologising for misleading (lying) the house at the box

Now this quote is one that Johnson and Frost should listen to

 

I think those ideas which are meant to make life easier on the business community in Northern Ireland, especially on the citizens on the island of Ireland, should be embraced by the British government, rather than talking about red lines.”

 

– The European Commission's vice president Frans Timmermans
