Boris Johnson Prime Minister


Recommended Posts

Disturbing article from the Byline Times. It isn't the first time they've reported on this but last time none of the MSM picked it up. Now we know why the Mail and Sun have supported the PM so vociferously over Partygate.

I firmly believe it was a two way long before covid.

This has just perhaps given some evidence for it.

 

About time liar Cummings gave some solid evidence to back up his rhetoric about liar Johnson.

His word alone is worth absolutely nowt (both of 'em)

Well I see there have been more fines issued for Partygate.

 

What I still wonder is why the Police themselves have not been investigated for turning a blind eye to these as all you need to do is look at all the security around and within Downing Street and the Police really never knew any of this was going on not one really.

Boris needs to check on how many additional Civil Servants were required due to Brexit. There were adverts for thousands of Brexit related roles across the UK. More than for Covid related work.

and corrupt incompetent Johnsons threats to the good friday agreement of which the USA is a guarantor

Exclusive: Influential representatives likely to underline Biden’s commitment to defend Good Friday agreement

 

 

... but lets not forget that Johnson will burn anything and anyone to the ground if he thinks it will help him hold onto power for a minute longer.

He would leave the UK in burnt out ruins if it meant he held on to power an extra hour.

Heres a foil hat possibility, which is the only one that actually fits the scenes

 

The US trade agreement Truss 'negotiated' is so bad, even worse than the Aussie one, that Johnson doesn't really want it as he will be ripped to shreds in the press (even with the favours) when the details are released, but he daren't just walk away

AND the deal he negotiated for NI is as we know, an incompetent mess that would require Johnson to implement the border systems that are probably still decades away

 

so if he 'just' breaches international law on the one agreement, he loses the other he doesn't want (has Johnson ever got a deal he did want after agreeing it?) while pointing the finger elsewhere (unreasonable yanks not pressing their advantage to rip us off)

 

..

 

Of course we become an international trade pariah state in the process .. but Johnson gets a few weeks or even months more of staying in power, and he hasn't got any deals that are worth saving anyway ..

Politics is the problem in N.Ireland and not the protocol.  Any issues with customs border checks can be resolved with EU. There is an agricultural agreement on standards that could be signed up to that would avoid 80% of the custom document/delay issues.

 

  UK farmers want to maintain agricultural standards and avoid cheap food products being imported. UK Government appear to be wanting deals with US and other countries with different standards to EU, so they are reluctant to agree to EU standards agreement

 

Would UK Government really risk trade war with EU and peace/stability in N.Ireland, just so they are free to sign up to agricultural and other goods standards which are different to those required by EU?

 

Answering my own question, yes I think Boris would take the risk, because he appears fixated on free trade and few rules, so the UK can import food and other goods from around the world which could be of poor quality or come with health warnings.

Sadly, I agree that Johnson would take the risk. There's a body of opinion also that he would risk anything and anyone so that he can stay in power for a bit longer.

Was interesting to hear news reports with EU representatives saying that for most in NI, the protocol simply wasn't an issue and business was great

 

.. must have slipped through

 

If the DUP get what they want they will just start whinging and blaming the EU for losing their cake and eat it and being in the same shitty boat as the rest of us...

5 hours ago, honeybee13 said:

Maros Sefcovic has issued a statement after Liz Truss announced a new bill to override large parts of the NIP.

 

 

Thats the whole of it so far isnt it?

No detail included.

 

clepto and daughter 'seem to be ignoring that the good friday agreement was intended to maintain peace in Ireland, not maintain the DUP and Tories in power.

I still think its just BS bluffing brinkmanship which will be a lot of wind and noise and naff all else of real significance.

 

Even if clepto and daughter do unilaterally declare 'we can send our sausages to NI even if nobody wants them and even the DUP wouldn't have them with a full English, 

what is the UK going to do at all the other ports if the EU declare that the UK has in doing so effectively revoked all the agreements and mechanisms to export anything to or through the EU?

There seems to be elements of truth in that HB, but largely its foil hat stuff

 

.. and no mentions of the right wing american cabal or russian influence, let alone Murdock or the other news moguls who sold Brexit to the masses.

 

The simple fact is that many saw personal benefit from Brexit (especially but not exclusively pharma), and extreme l/r politicians like Johnson and Corbyn wanted power unfettered by the influence of close partners to press their agendas.

"There was anger inside No 10 as the Metropolitan Police concluded its Partygate investigation, leaving the prime minister with just one fixed penalty notice (FPN) compared to some junior staff who amassed as many as five – despite insider accounts that they had attended the same events."

 

and:

 

“It’s a joke,” one No 10 source told The Independent. “He told people to ‘let their hair down’ and enjoy their drinks which they’d earned for ‘beating back the virus’.”

They said the prime minister had participated in socialising with officials and advisers in a manner that had been regarded as an endorsement of partying after work.

“He’s a man of little or no integrity,”

My assessment:

 

1. Johnson got a top QC to do his returns, and got off on technicalities - which would seem to need the collusion of the met as they had officers in attendance AND have already issued fines to others at the same events. - Stinks of corruption to me.

 

2. Simple civil servants who felt unable to refuse the 'invites' were probably advised to just pay up - by Johnsons advocates - purely to take the flack.

 

3. Note that only about 2/3rdsish of the fines have been paid ...

Have the 1/3 (favored ministers and spads .. and the wise) been waiting for Johnsons 'get out of jail free' cards to be invoked so they can then say, I'm not paying, no fault as you have already cleared Johnson of attending the same event?

 

Of course 'the MET found no laws broken' will be used against any issues in the sue gray report ...
