BUT BUNTER ALEXANDER MUST BE SLAYED BY GIRLBOSS SUE GREY!?!?!? NO MY LIBERAL JUSTICE FANTASY IS EBBING AWAYVBEFORE MY EYES

Fambo Number Mive

Lots of Johnson bootlickers on Twitter getting #defundtheBBC trending, claiming it is "openly campaigning to unseat an elected prime minister" and talking about the "scum media".

A lot of them are complaining that the media are focusing on the Sue Gray report instead of the cost of living crisis and the economy, ignoring that there wouldn't be a cost of living crisis if it wasn't for the government they defend.

Are these all real people or bots? Either way it's bleak.

Nice to hear she didn't even bother investigating the flat party

In a way it's right though, the centre media have been trying to use this relatively incosequential thing to get rid of Boris Johnson with no effect on his party and get some sensible man put in charge of the establishment by hammering it for months now, but they absolutely fucked it to the point that the leader of the oppposition is more likely to resign over it.

QuoteJohnson says: "I hope that today as well as learning the lessons from Sue Gray's report... we will be able to move on and focus on the priorities of the British people

I mean, a priority of mine would be to have an honest government which obeyed the rules it made. Also, it seems Johnson and his cabinet cannot multi-task.

TrenterPercenter

Jesus still people focusing on Starmer and centrists on Twitter rather than the absolute piss taking cunt of a PM.

Most countries have to recruit their fascist stalking-horses from the working classes - Hitler was an Austrian corporal, Mussolini's family were socialist blacksmiths and Stalin was the son of a shoemaker.

In forelock-tugging Britain, we just short-cut to putting billionaire toffs into unaccountable power.

What a pathetic, grey, wet fag-end collection of frozen rocks in the arse end of the North Atlantic this fucking country is. The ashtray of Europe.

QuoteResponding to the Labour leader, Boris Johnson says his opposite number was not busy leading hundreds of people during the pandemic, but "sniping from the sidelines and veering from one position to the next".

He says "time after time" Sir Keir Starmer focused on parties when asking questions in the Commons, rather than using "common sense" to understand that it was "difficult to draw the boundary between work and socialising".

The prime minister accuses him of having a "sanctimonious obsession" with Partygate, which has been "punctured" by the investigation into his actions in Durham.

Just an insult to everyone who followed the rules. How many ordinary people were able to use the "difficult to draw the boundary between work and socialising" rules when being fined by police.

Again (I know you know this) IT ISN'T ABOUT THE PARTIES. IT IS THE LIES. THE CONSTANT, STUPID, TRANSPARENT LIES.

I think it is both the parties and the lies, to be honest.

I do wonder how many people spread covid asymptomatically to each other at the Number 10 parties. If people like Johnson and Sunak weren't obeying the rules on gatherings were they obeying the rules on testing regularly?

Quote"Difficult though this is to say for many: with a war in Europe, with an economic crisis, with the challenges this country faces, is it not really true that it is now time to turn a page - and for this country, our politics, and this House to move forwards?"

Robert Jenrick
Conservative MP

Just like Jenrick would want people to move on from his approval of Desmond's luxury housing development on Westferry Road:

QuoteIn May 2020, Jenrick accepted that his approval of a £1 billion luxury housing development on Westferry Road, Isle of Dogs had been unlawful. The 1,500-home development was proposed by Richard Desmond, a Conservative Party donor and owner of Northern & Shell. The government's planning inspector had previously advised against the scheme, as it delivered an inadequate amount of affordable housing and as the height of the tower would be detrimental to the character of the area.[44] However, Jenrick approved the scheme on 14 January, knowing that an approval by that date would enable Richard Desmond to avoid having to pay a council-imposed infrastructure levy of between £30 and £50 million, which could have been used for funding schools and health clinics

Fuck off Jenrick shock doctrine cunt

While telling everyone we've had the fastest economic recovery in Europe.

My problem with it all is the tap tap tap at the foundation of public faith in democracy: they're all in it together, they make rules for us not for themselves, you can't trust any of them, why vote at all because they're all the same and if one gets caught doing something illegal well they're all like that so what can you do.

The current tories are creating existential problems for democracy and laughing while they do it.

I hope everyone at the graun/bbc is pleased with themselves for attacking that awful mr crobbin. Could have been worse - a horrid little man!

Well, yes - of course it's the parties too. But you often hear people waving away 'the parties', because it turns out that *some* of the precautions many of us were obliged to take (like not sitting on a bench in the middle of a one hour walk, or crossing the road if it looked as if someone was going to come within 100 yards) were a bit overcooked in retrospect.

So I focus on the lies. In most normal political scandals you read about from history it's hardly ever the 'thing' that gets them, it's the lies they tell afterwards.

Yep. And the next time we're told we all need to do something for the common good, at least 52% of 'us' will just laugh and tell them to fuck off.

I try not to engage too much with party politics and individual politicians because I think it's mostly a waste of time but I truly do hate this sniggering hack motherfucker. The product of a life lived without consequences for any of your actions.

Yeah it's all just a game of chess to Johnson, except he's pissed up and refusing to admit he doesn't know how to play chess.

He actually wrote a column opposing tighter gun control after the Dunblane massacre "Nanny is confiscating their toys. It is like one of those vast Indian programmes of compulsory vasectomy."

And top of the pile are the royals who are literally above the law, and who there's no route for non-royals to aspire to be. In theory anyone can become a president or a prime minister, but a queen? Unless you are able to invent a time machine and a way to insert yourself into the bollocks of a former sovereign, no chance.

I know in some ways the monarchy and Republicanism are silly concerns and, like North Korea, can be ignored as just a weird quirk of our planet. But in another way, I do wonder what sort of effects trickle down when there are cases where the idea of meritocracy is ruled out by design.

I know plenty of queens who've inserted themselves into someone's bollocks.
