Boris Johnson Prime Minister


Recommended Posts

I see the DUP is also threatening to collapse Stormont if it doesnt get its way with the NI protocol

.. despite NI getting the best of both worlds if Johnson actually simply sorted out the admin processes - but no

 

Also interesting that despite hedlines about no kosher foos, and NI starving due to lack of english sausage .. that is horsecrap. There are no shortages - they've all been filled from the Island of Ireland and it seems the vast majority of the Irish at both ends are quite pleased with it.

 

A few aren't though - apparently even those a minority of DUP

Another bunch who are fast losing any remaining relevance and dont like it

 

oops - rather limited but easy read link

The Guardian and the Independent have both received information that Johnson was at another party during the May 2020 lockdown.

PM is probably looking behind their mop hair style to a Tory party that is increasing worrying that he has become a bit of a liability.

 

As Keir Starmer put it, "the worst PM at the worst time"!

 

Is this a bit unfair ?

 

PM wins election in 2019 to get Brexit done. Then by March 2020, UK/World hit by a pandemic and the PM nearly dies in Hospital.  Then has to make difficult choices considering public safety, freedoms and the economy.

 

Any Government in power at the time would be making mistakes.

 

Where I think the PM can be rightly criticised, is that they have not ensured that high standards of financial proberty have been maintained.  E.g.  PPE VIP fast track lane for contracts, apparent financial conflicts of interest leading to sleaze allegations.

I agree that everyone made mistakes, UB. Some countries learned from that, though.

 

The corruption part was completely unnecessary but seems to becoming endemic. I see that unsuitable PPE from companies is being auctioned off. I yjink it was Jolyon Maugham who spotted a box of items that taxpayers paid £1000 for that sold for £5.

 

Why not reclaim taxpayers' funds from the VIP listers?

Not in the slightest. Quite the understatement and mild in fact.

All the damage Johnson the corrupt liar is doing to democracy,  the nation, the people and their lives, the union, its businesses trade and reputation

- Its nothing short of an utter shameful disgrace that he is in ANY position of responsibility.

 

Johnson is nothing short of an incompetent, corrupt, lying self-serving ******.

Always has been - always will be.

 

‘Boris really has adopted a disgracefully cavalier attitude to his classical studies … [he] sometimes seems affronted when criticised for what amounts to a gross failure of responsibility (and surprised at the same time that he was not appointed Captain of the school for the next half). I think he honestly believes that it is churlish of us not to regard him as an exception, one who should be free of the network of obligation that binds everyone else.’

a letter sent from Martin Hammond, the former Headmaster of Eton in 1982, to Stanley Johnson, Boris Johnson’s father.

"the Liberal Democrats defeated the Conservatives to win the North Shropshire by-election with a 5,925 majority.

Helen Morgan – who came third with just 10 per cent of the vote in the same seat in the 2019 general election – won with 17,957 votes, while her Tory rival Neil Shastri-Hurst’s scored 12,032. It comes just two years after the Tories won the seat with a 23,000 majority"

 

YAYYYY

About time real conservatives woke up (lol) and smelled the stink of populist corruption

"Grant Shapps, became the latest Tory politician to get caught in the crosshairs of yet another Daily Mirror scoop on potentially illegal gatherings at the heart of power. The Department for Transport has apologised after admitting that staff working for Shapps held a Christmas party while strict Covid curbs were still in place last year. Government staff were “boozing and dancing” at an event in Whitehall on 16 December - the same day London was moved into tier 3 restrictions."

 

His (Shapps) spokesperson  said: “He was not notified or invited and would have banned such a gathering forthwith, had he been made aware that it was being prepared.”

 

Perhaps it’s worth checking the guestlist for the “millionaire web marketer” Michael Green, a pseudonym used by Shapps while he was raking while still an MP, in a case of moonlighting that puts recent scandals to shame."

and before any Corbynistas pipe up - 'should have voted for Jezza'

NO we should have voted for ANYONE except Johnson or Corbyn (or Farage - WOW wasn't our choices limited))

 

johnson and corbyn are a pair who enabled each other.

Without the other, neither would have been considered 'the lessor evil'  by anyone with sense.

Another day, another breach...

 

or two or three

I think Johnson is hoping people will become hardened with the sheer volume of abuses, corruption and self-serving numbing peoples senses of outrage

 

* PPE abuse of taxpayer money for doners and pals benefits while front line staff wore bin liners

* Dyson school air filters - abuse of tax payers money for doners and pals benefits

* forced PCE testing into incompetent pals labs - abuse of taxpayer money while infection was spread

* One set of harsh enforced rules for you peasants - NO rules for us elite

* Cheap loans at taxpayer expense - to companies who donate £10s or 100s of 1000s to tories while claiming those cheap taxpayer funded loans

* Business loans to companies created days before the loan application - at taxpayer expense

* Whipped votes to change the law to protect populist corruption and over-rule judicial decisions

* You cant see your dying grandma - we'll Paaartaaayyy (at your expense)

* whipped votes to leave British kids hungry

 

and seeing the above, which is a only a brief summary of the mountain of corruption and abuses, they really should be whipped - to within an inch of their lives - a fine old conservative British tradition

I think thats demonstrating whats sitting in the wings once Johnson has gone

Johnson has not just just lowered the bar regarding decency hes thrown it away, the whole 'Tory' party needs kicking into the wilderness until its sorted itself out.

 

Lefties might moan about starmer, but a bit of straight forward left of middle un-dramatic administration to get the nation back on track is exactly what we need not to end up as a Trump gameshow nation.

Its going to be hard enough holding any of the union together in any form with the legacy Johnson has already created.

I agree, TJ. Dividing the nation and starting silly culture wars to distract from other problems isn't the way to go.

 

In other news, Frosty the Noman has resigned. He said it was over Plan B, masks, etc but I wonder if it's because he had to be nice to the EU in the last couple of weeks.

The only reason dorries has a job is to cheerlead Johnson.

She'll jump ship quick enough when appropriate. As will quasi-munge-o (both if they are given the option of course)

Thought Steve Baker was against the "cancel culture" ?

 

Will the usual awkward squad in the Tory party, who were hardliners on Brexit, who are against most Covid measures and who are against many of the Governments current policies, start to splinter into a separate party, rather than try to force Boris out ?

The thing we need to hold in mind is that these are the people who enabled Johnson to be PM, and their prime driver is a bonfire of:

tax's (for the rich), social care, NHS, rights, regulations and environmental protections to maximise their profits

 

Although Johnson would have no issue with that, and certainly has no issue with sh** being poured into waterways and the environment, Johnsons prime drivers are self aggrandizement and self preservation, and being loathed probably does worry him at least a bit

If he cant rewrite history to make himself a hero no matter what he does .. and that seems to be long gone, then self preservation is the only other driver ...

 

What that will result in in the Tory civil war - I'm by no means certain.

But the hard brexit singapore on pollute the thames crowd are seeing their goals endangered, and the populace are beginning to see Johnson and them as they are ..

My guess is that most Tory backbenchers and most who voted Tory in 2019, do not want an extreme hard Brexit implemented,  and do not want  reduced employment rights, privatisation of parts of the NHS ,reduced regulatory standards etc.

 

General Election is due in 2024 and it is not very often a divided party is elected. 

 

Labour have a divided party, but ahead of an election, I suspect that they will come together as one party. I am not sure whether the Tories can unite behind a shared vision of the future for the UK.

That's the thing isn't it, UB? They bang on about being elected and that voters can have their say, but it only happens every four years or so. 

 

If Patel's plan works out, voters won't be able to demonstrate to show what they think.
