ITV are going in for Johnson on News at Ten in a way i can't remember them doing previously, it all feels a bit strange. There's not a chance they haven't been sitting on this stuff for a while and something has made them pull the trigger, feels like a concerted effort to get Johnson punted. 

 

 

 

Think that about sums it up. Happy to keep it quiet until the moment they aren't. 

 

Seen this yesterday regarding Allegra Stratton, what a truly horrible person

Looks terrible on the face of it, but again I need context.

Part of an opinion article in which they are insulting her in the process isn't that.

That's not an opinion piece. it's an article in Private Eye reporting on what she's alleged to have said when she was researching for interviewees before choosing that assassination on the poor lass who was actually working.


For your benefit, I've highlighted the bit in my sentence which is my opinion.

ETA

Some more context.

I need context is the Tory fanboys version of saying Hitler isn't all bad as he built motorways and was a dog lover. Tories have been self serving c***s since the year dot and have bullied the poor, unfortunate and disabled along the way. They are a crime syndicate for toffs and hoodwink roasters through their compliant media.

It looked full of opinion to me.  Calling her lofty and likening her to an Edwardian eugenicist probably wasn't the best move if the writer was trying to come across as factual and balanced.

Would need to see the full context of the interview before commenting.

I rarely come onto the politics forum these days but you come across like the biggest bootlicker imaginable.

Mindless, hostile conjecture earns one a place on my famous ever expanding ignore list, I'm afraid.

I don't have the energy for nonsense these days, but will happily respond to those who don't insult.

Cheerio.

He’s a newly-arrived alias account keen to make his mark. Hence the Tory shilling, parroting of existing bootlicking posters, and go-for-broke support of extremists. Desperately to make an impression before another ban hits, I suspect.

One one of those articles is a Guardian opinion piece which will hardly give a balanced view, or context.  That's like someone trying to give a balanced, contextualised account of Jewry by supplying an opinion piece from Mein Kampf.

Unfortunately the New Statesman article is behind a paywall.

He reported that someone likened her to Edwardian Eugenicist. the context of this is that I can read.

It's been quite an interesting few days for the Tories north and south of the Border, eh? 

BoJo's little festive difficulties over an allegedly non-existent party in London and his northern brigade leader being told to eff off over changes in drug policy in Scotland. Poor stuff.

Meanwhile, it appears that none of the six Tory MPs from Scottish constituencies lifted a finger to support the carbon capture proposals in Aberdeenshire.  Not a letter or an email. Still, i suppose they are very busy, torying about the place. 

Has a PM ever resigned during PMQs? It would certainly secure his place in history.
