The best way of clearing up this whole matter is for starmer to step down.

No that's just Mr Putin angling for some advantage or other probably of a financial nature.

That's why it's important a Government doesn't waste its authority. This isn't the media's fault, it's their fault for displaying such disregard for their own rules and the public and their incompetence in handling it when they got caught out.

The media are reporting it because the public care. It's almost always the case that what the public and media care about is, to a neutral observer, objectively out of proportion to what is actually happening in the world.

At any one time there is turmoil on the Indian border with Kashmir, China's treatment of the Uyghurs, there has been a war in Yemen for years now and civil wars in some African states whilst our front pages will focus on the fact that Ant and/or Dec have crashed their car.

Thankfully when it comes to Ukraine the Foreign Office and MOD can just get on with it. They don't need Parliament and even if they did there is a consensus on it.

Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

My wife said she was listening on radio (Moral Maze?) and it was commented that before the election people knew Mr Boris was an affable chap who liked to please people and was a bit of a clown. That he behaved in that way shouldn't be a surprise. He wants to be liked even if he should really be firmer.


But further to this, it really isn't that much of an issue. It's looking back a fair way about something they shouldn't really have done but really isn't that important. I read that some mother was complaining that a family member died (not HRM) and they held a "work event". Not really related unless someone attending contracted covid, passed it on etc. And I would say the same about Starmer or any others. If there is something that need investigating, investigate and deal with appropriately. This isn't something that really affects the nation or needs immediate action.

There is merit in what Tweetiepooh has said.

Nevertheless, Boris is a dishonest buffoon and needs to be replaced soonest.

The issue is that it breaks the contract between government and the people. That's extremely important. You only have to look at countries like France that don't have such a strong connection between the two to see how this manifests itself in lower vaccination rates and civil disobedience.

Is there a contract? I get the point, namely that the Guvmin and its employees should not be a law unto themselves contrary to what the people are allowed to do. But Tweetiepooh has a point that the real job of government must continue uninterrupted, which I suspect is happening (ministers exercising their briefs).

It’s just Boris, behaving like he was still at Eton who needs sorting out.

As to who should be next Tory leader, I’m leaning towards David Frost.

Jeremy Clarkson

Mrs Brown (and her boys)
Bradley Walsh
Jeff Stelling
Cristiano Ronaldo

What, an unelected bureaucrat telling us what to do?
