 I'm sure the Speaker could do a lot more, TJ. You've got the ludicrous situation where the PM lies to the House and then any MP who points this out and uses the word 'liar' is removed from the chamber.

 

The Guardian has an article on how Johnsons's damage limitation operation works. We already know some of it but it's a good summary. 'Lie, deny, move on.'

 

They could have added 'distract' which could be why Patel has gone to Rwanda. Big announcement due on refugees today to cheer up the hardliners. Will they still remember it when fines for parties rather than cake are announced though? It seems a lot of people didn't expect Johnson would be fined for the Cake episode.

 

And there is talk on Twitter of more fines for Sunak.

More fines for Sunak could be very interesting if true.

He wanted and no doubt still wants to be PM, but wouldn't want to leave under a cloud - that wouldn't do much for his future ambitions.

 

More fines, depending on the circumstances, means he'll likely be seen as a corrupt entitled liar like Johnson, rather than basically honest if hard right entitled Tory .. which was arguable and a widely held perception.

 

.. MAYBE he was just waiting for these others to appear before resigning to strike at Johnson hardest, although i doubt that. It will be about what he can make the best for him ...

 

All depends on the circumstances of any future fines. I could accept that he went to see Johnson on business and was 'roped in' the once. But more than once 'roped in' shows a total lack of basic political competence.

 

Johnson will continue to hang on grimly - he's likely got a complete sh*t show of charges lined up against him when hes deposed. or at least he certainly should have.

and Starmer needs to harden up and press. He may be a better option than Johnson, mind you even Truss or Gove probably is, and tugendhat certainly is but Starmer NOT impressive at all.

 

I see GB news and the BrEx-press are trying to generate a 'sunak should be recalled' movement. Interesting that they haven't been doing that for the many many many Johnsonson lies and antics

Have I misunderstood the new immigration plan?

 

Refugees will be met on arrival by the army (who I'm sure have plenty of time for this in amongst all the other domestic stuff they're meant to be doing) and all the single men will be shipped to Rwanda while their applications for asylum are considered. Or told to apply for asylum in Rwanda?

 

I can see it could be a deterrent, given Rwanda's human rights issues, but is it legal? Also, even if it is, some people think it will be very expensive.

Of course this could be a distraction from the greased piglet's partygate problems but it must have been expensive to send Patel to Kigali in the royal - I mean government - plane.

While we are on about shipping around the world and britcoin/freeports

 

Consider

 

P&O have just broken UK law by firing those staff (that the populist scumbags knew all about that last year we'll put aside for the moment)

P&O said they had to do this or collapse.

 

P&O is detailed as one of the major sponsers of UK freeports as mentioned higher, despite having to break UK law allegedly to prevent the company folding despite all the side funding of this that and the other.

 

So we have a company literally claiming to be on the brink of collapse, breaking UK employment law, and are major partners in the UK freeport schemes ...

Perhaps being willing to break UK law is a requirement for freeport partner/major investor status?

Surely being on the brink of bankruptcy isnt?

According to The Times, which says the PM wants the first flight to leave within weeks (just in time for the May local elections), it will cost the taxpayer an eyewatering £30,000 to send each migrant 6,000 miles away to Africa.

Priti Patel, the home secretary, claimed the cost of the scheme is a “drop in the ocean”

"Boris Johnson will “have his say” on partygate in Parliament this week, a minister said today, as Labour tore into fresh revelations that a gathering at Downing Street turned into a leaving party only after the prime minister allegedly started pouring drinks.

 

The Sunday Times reported the prime minister’s official photographer had captured Mr Johnson holding a beer at the gathering, and chancellor Rishi Sunak with a soft drink, at the event on 13 November 2020.

 

“He said he wanted to say a few words for Lee [Cain] and started pouring drinks for people and drinking himself,” a source told the newspaper.

 

Energy minister Greg Hands confirmed Mr Johnson  will be speaking to Parliament this week about the scandal and “will out-lie his version of events."

 

(apologies for minor Freudian transcription errors)

The prime minister reportedly led the leaving party for his communications director

I think tomorrow's effort to clear things up will end up being a whitewash, TJ. Meanwhile, Patel has lashed out at the archbishop/s who have disagreed with the Rwanda policy. Not a good look.

 

I read a survey earllier, not sure where now, that found a huge percentage of Brits now think the PM is a liar.

 

There was an interesting item on BBC Broadcasting House this weekend. Lord (Peter) Hennessy, leading scolar of the constitution, read out his diary entry for 12th April when the PM appeared to apologise but said he wasn't resigning. Well said Lord Hennessy.

Lord Hennessy has accused the prime minister of causing a 'constitutional crisis' by not resigning.

They aren't coming up with alternatives she moaned

 

.. err, there are/were proper legitimate procedures in place, just like there were legitimate options to send EU 'migrants who didn't work back to their country of origin (well there was while we were part of the EU),

- its her and Johnsons' plans to sink the boats and send people to Rwanda that are the unlawful and immoral populist 'alternatives'

I see they couldn't find at least some of the phones the spyware was installed on - so they must have been the ones all the dodgy dealings were done on which were 'broken' or 'lost' when inquiries asked for them when there was nothing on the official phones they should have been doing gov business on rather than private phones ....

... Which leads one to think that the (alleged) UAE and their pal Russia probably have all sorts of blackmail material on the ministers, spads and un-elected  bureaucrats like Frost involved ...

 

... in addition to any dodgy dealings dirt given to Putin by the oligarchs involved in funding Johnsons populists

Interesting that it was a foreign spy monitoring service that keeps reporting these infestations/leaks to Johnsons government ...

Perhaps the canucks should just release the material - a few investigating bodies have been asking for the contents of these ever missing ministers/spads private phones used for 'gov' business for some time ...

I saw the article yesterday, TJ - depressing read, sadly.

 

This is a tweet from David Allen Green earlier.

 

'The same government that whipped its backbenchers to delay the Owen Paterson report is now to whip backbenchers so as to block a privileges inquiry into the Prime Minister

 

But these should not be party-whipped matters

 

This is mere political gangsterism'

Whipped the party to protect Paterson - and will expect the same result for Johnson

 

Whipped the party to not spend about £140M to feed hungry UK kids, but will ready gift £140M to Rwanda as a distraction from Johnsons self-created problems excused as part of a scheme scam that would cost the UK taxpayer MORE billions on top of the PPE and test and trace debacles.

 

His intent seems clearly to both financially and morally bankrupt the UK and its citizens.
