Boris is ever-dependable. In that whatever he clearly states one day, can be discarded in a heartbeat when it no longer suits him.
This is usually when rules that he has made are then expected to be applied to him and his mates.
Cummings and Jenrick being two other recent examples
Rules, like taxes, are apparently only for the little peoplePosted 1 week ago
Have any of the Ministerial Code five deadly sins NOT been broken since the foreword by the PM was published in August?
Yeah, but he didn’t mean a single word of it. He probably doesn’t remember it either, as he was most likely pissed when it was drafted for him.

So she wasn’t aware that her behaviour was bullying cos she wasn’t told? If you need to be told that shouting and swearing isn’t acceptable then you’re not really cut out to hold that position. Oh, hold on this is the Tory cabinet we’re discussing.
Id’d like Starmer to start PMQs with the most viscous foul mouthed rant at Boris. When challenged he should just say “Sorry, didn’t think that would be seen as bullying” and leave PMQs at that.Posted 1 week ago

Well its not like she is home secretary and hence in charge of a legal system which works on the notion that ignorance of a law is no defence.Posted 1 week ago
She was told. She wasn’t told directly by those she bullied, because they complained using the appropriate channels. She was then told by people more senior in the civil service than those she bullied to change her behaviour… some of whom than had their careers ruined by her. Would you complain direct to her, with a rep like that? Hell no.Posted 1 week ago
Seems to me that patel’s behaviour could accurately described as harassment…
it’s harassment where the behaviour is meant to or has the effect of either:
– violating your dignity
– creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment.
This means it’s harassment even if the person harassing you didn’t mean to offend or intimidate you, as long as the harassment has one of the above effects.
Harassment is unwanted behaviour which you find offensive or which makes you feel intimidated or humiliated. It can happen on its own or alongside other forms of discrimination.

Unwanted behaviour could be:
-spoken or written words or abuse
– offensive emails, tweets or comments on social networking sites
– images and graffiti
– physical gestures
– facial expressions
You don’t need to have previously objected to something for it to be unwanted.

yeah the two times I would complain to someone directly is either if I really didnt give a toss about my career (I did walk out on one interview when the person was being a ****. Not sure whether it was just them being normal or seeing how I would “handle pressure” but decided I couldnt be arsed risking spending several years with them and pointed that out to them before exiting) or I really thought it was just an accidental, inadvertent personality clash and they would feel crappy they had come across how they did.Posted 1 week ago

I know a couple of people who were pretty senior in the party and are still involved in the background. In the past they’ve been very supportive of Johnson irrespective of what he’s done. That support is noticeably waning now and has been for the last couple of months. I suspect Johnson may not see out 2021 as PM.

Isn’t the current thinking that he’ll barely see 2020 out as pm?
Although, maybe too much of a useful idiot and will take the flak until the meltdown is almost complete, perhaps…Posted 1 week ago

Johnson won’t see out January. But he’ll be made to carry the can for the shitstorm of Brexit first.
Whoever follows him will somewhat amazingly be even worse.
The hang’em and flog’em Tory grassroots absolutely bloody love ‘The Prittster’ for a start, as she echoes their own small-minded nastiness back at them, so she’s definitely in the framePosted 1 week ago
Depressing to even consider which **** they’d choose to replace him.
Heart wants them to pick Gove as he’s perhaps the least electable, head says it’ll be Sunak – but he might be too smart to go for it this time round.
Would have said Patel was too nasty and too dirty, but nobody knows anything any more, eh?Posted 1 week ago

Yep. As they piously pontificate to the rest of us about hard work and thrift whilst living off of gold plated pensions having worked for barely 50% of their lives.

Boris doing PMQ’s via Zoom link is reminiscent of an ISIS hostage video.
It’s about as animated and inspiring. All he needs is an orange jumpsuit. I’m just waiting for him to state that his captors are treating him well
It’s unbelievable just how bad he is. He seems to get worse every week. It’s like he knows he’s on borrowed time, he’s waiting for the knife between the shoulder blades and he just can’t really be arsed any more.

Shredded again at PMQs; loved the way Starmer took him through the code of conduct, point by point, and humiliated him question by question.Posted 4 days ago
I’m also really enjoying the speaker cutting him short and refusing him to allow his continued blathering.
He truly is incompetent.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is sat on a 80 seat majority.

Re PMQs. I came away impressed with starmers unflappability, every time Johnson gave a non answer you knew after 5-10 seconds of blather he’d then do whatabouttery to round his pitiful ‘answer’. Every time. Every f ing time. It had me shouting at my computer screen and quivering with rage. But Starmer just had a look of disdainful ‘not bovvered’ on his face
Despite his faults, and refusal to take elocution lessons to mitigate his nasally voice, I was impressed…..and disgusted with Johnson. I hate him so much. And that leaked ‘prittster’ WhatsApp message had me cringing in a way that’s probably unhealthyPosted 3 days ago

I still think an Ed miliband, fired up with righteous anger, has more effect and, forgive me, ‘cut through’. Starmer’s dissection of Johnson is like a QC taking apart a litigant-in-person whereas miliband was like an educated everyman humiliating a stuck up bumbling fool. But, Johnson’s whatabouttery just can’t stick to Starmer whereas I could see it flustering miliband or any of the shadow front benchPosted 3 days ago
