That's the question that is being asked...

Let's see if anything happens with this...

Quote:
Damian Green, Theresa May’s close ally, is facing possible legal action after accusing a former senior police officer of lying about pornography on the MP’s personal computer.

Bob Quick, the former Metropolitan police assistant commissioner, has demanded that the first secretary of state publicly retract the “deeply hurtful allegations” or be dragged before the courts...

...Lewis and Quick’s intervention prompted Cressida Dick, the Met’s commissioner, to say that former officers who speak out about investigations could face prosecution.

Asked to respond to Quick’s comments, a spokesperson for Green said: “It would be inappropriate for Mr Green to comment while the Cabinet Office inquiry is ongoing and while the Metropolitan police is investigating the conduct of former officers.”

PHILIP Hammond has suggested Britain’s sluggish productivity is partly down to having more disabled people in the workforce.

The Chancellor has been blasted for the comments, labelled “totally unacceptable and derogatory” by disability campaigners.

While speaking to MPs at the treasury select committee yesterday he was asked about the low levels of economic productivity he spoke about during his Budget speech last month.

But his response has caused uproar, and has seen Mr Hammond accused of pushing “outdated negative stereotypes”.

Gaffe prone Hammond at his worst.

Engage brain before opening mouth.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

Quote:
The Jeremy Corbyn-supporting group Momentum is being investigated by the Electoral Commission over spending during June's election.

Officials will look into whether the grassroots campaign group, which evolved from Mr Corbyn's successful Labour leadership bid in 2015, breached spending rules.

Momentum was a registered non-party campaigner at this year's snap General Election, and the Electoral Commission is investigating the organisation's activities in the run-up to the vote.

The probe will look at whether Momentum broke spending limits, failed to include accurate donation information, submitted an incomplete statement of payments, and did not disclose all invoices for payments of more than £200.

The Electoral Commission said there is a possibility their investigation could also identify other potential rule breaches.

He has been doing that a lot recently. But that was a disgusting remark.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

Of course. You cannot expect to be in such a position and vote against their own party which is in government.

No doubt the UK political parties have great experience of that judging by the many broken promises of the last 40 years..

Be careful what you wish for, richard. A Corbyn government would be disastrous, and guess who would suffer the most?

Clue: Venezuala.

No. The people with sky high interest rates, plummeting pound, rampant inflation, mass unemployment and industrial collapse.

But the socialista will have a warm fuzzy feeling of high taxes on the "rich" who will have fled the country like happened in France.
