Boris Johnson’s ordering of Tory MPs to protect Owen Paterson, who breached lobbying bans in two jobs paying £112,000 a year on top of his Westminster £82,000 salary, was grotesque
PM is not qualified to govern
Boris Johnson and his Conservative Government are accelerating the decay of our democracy with their nauseating stench.
This a Prime Minister with a couldn’t-care-less approach to running the country.
He is untrustworthy of honesty and will say anything he likes, proving himself unfit for high office.
His ordering of Tory MPs to protect Owen Paterson, who breached lobbying bans in two jobs paying £112,000 a year on top of his Westminster £82,000 salary, was grotesque.
It also revealed a grotesque wider truth –that when Johnson or his gang outrageously break the rules, he decides those same rules must be torn up instead of obeyed.
That is alarming in a democracy. Trust is the cornerstone of how we’re governed.
The Old Etonian has been shaken by the ferocious reaction to Tory sleaze.
The SNP referring Tory peerages to the police, Liberal Democrats achieving today’s Commons debate and Labour going on the offensive is, with many Tory voters and MPs sickened by Johnson and his Government, a country beginning to unite against a shameless man starting to regret his ugly arrogance.
Saj, take care
If Sajid Javid does not wake up to the hammer blow that he is about deliver to the care system, the vulnerable will be left hungry.
Covid should not be tolerated by carers, but the Health Minister must allow those who are not taking daily tests to continue their work instead of firing them.
In a sector that has 100,000 vacancies, losing another 60,000 workers equals chaos.
The last recruitment drive attracted 3,000 people which doesn’t bode well for his current campaign.
He should pay more to carers and treat them with respect, not contempt.
Peaty is a winner
Swimming champ Adam Peaty didn’t add dance gold to his collection of medals.
But he can be proud – making any kind of splash on Strictly is a badge of honour.
