Raab took a mauling on BBC Breakfast too, when he tried to parrot out the "but, but, the economy" get out clause. Guessing, he was next available lickspittle after they probably locked Nadine Dorres in a crate last night!

Are you happy being told what you can and canít do, who you can and canít see for almost two years by someone who does the opposite? Did every other government hand out contracts to their friends illegally? Do you like the fact our PM stands in front of the house and tells them all he paid for his flat renovation when itís been proven that he didnít, or is it that he shows such loyalty to his friend that he tried to have the law change when the lobbying scandal broke.
Maybe itís the late lockdown causing untold deaths that attracts you, the fact he has a record of being sacked for telling lies. Or maybe you just like his hair.

Billions?  Did you miss the pandemic?

£4.3bn Covid loans fraud written off
£8.7bn in unusable PPE
>£37bn wasted on a shockingly bad Track and Trace system that was released with an out-of-date version of Excel as the back-end
Around another £1bn funnelled off to Tory donors & mates running newly created PPE companies via the illegal VIP Lane

But remember there's no money to cut VAT on fuel or let the poorest in the country keep £20 a week

England is a nation where a significant number of the public are cap-doffing imbeciles who enthusiastically vote against their own interests

You can try to make light of the Corbyn effect and Starmers ineffective way with the voters but thatís the reason Boris is sat on an 80 majority and is still seen by many as a potential winner of next election.

Lots of people like me couldnít bring themselves to vote Labour because of Corbyn. I knew enough about Boris from living in London when he was major to know he was full of shite and has no morals so couldnít vote for him either but plenty saw him as a better option and to be honest if it had come down to my vote mattering heíd have got that too if it was needed to stop Corbyn.

Morning Henry, Good to hear from you again.
Firstly in case you miss read me or I didn't word it right.
I was having a pop at OTR for sending too many taxis to Boris when not needed.
That was me referring to them not knowing politics said with tongue in cheek
Not because they voted Labour - that's their freedom of choice in this country,
Not that you would think that when you do actually read OTR and people voting tory.

2ndley we all like to win at times, but for every winner, they must come a loser - something I am aware of when at the polling station.

I don't follow polls if I did i would be following labour now they now lead oi believe.
As things stand i will be tory come the next election win or lose.
So you can either gloat or carry on whinge come the time.

And finally, if you check the link out below you will understand why many turned from red to blue in the last election- even the labour leader winces at the question asked.

I only hope to god after watching said video in the link you never voted for Jezza - that would say alot about you and others who did - if Sir Kier can't bring himself to say a good word about the man .. bye for now your good mate from COB  headset

George Orwell said when ownership of the press in concentrated in the hands of a few very wealthy individuals it is not "free" and cannot be relied on to tell the truth

Whoever the Labour leader is there will be a huge smear campaign against them in the right-wing tabloids.

To be fair Labours own policies were the main reason they havenít been getting in or Corbyn (apparently)

The influence of the right wing press (although significant) is unlikely to be a major or deciding factor

Labour Party themselves sabotaging the party for daring to have a socialist leader didnít help either and was actually people behaving like the right wing press about their own party

I said many millions more read it online, the total is 28M per month. Daily Mail total figures are 26M monthly

That's a lot of people reading right-wing biased "news". On COB the links to supporting "information" are 99% The Sun or the Daily Mail. Some idiot on COB thought the bias of The Sun was only in the Politics page which he didn't read :souey:

Are you saying George Orwell was wrong? I see a lot of RWNJ's quoting Orwell these days whilst blissfully ignorant of the fact he was a Socialist to the end

People want the job, Headset they just likely want to have put as much of covid and partygate behind the Tory party before they take over

I still think whoever takes over would prefer to have the job after the May elections as itís likely to be pretty bad for the Tories regardless of who takes over

and the reason Labour need someone new in is because they should want to go head to head at the May elections and the damage a poor May election might have on the party could make the red wall MPs very nervous. Itís the Tories who by acting set the things in motion not the voters at present of Labour.

Patience Bernie, patience. Remember Theresa May won her vote with a higher percentage than Boris, but Rees Mogg found a way round that, so that's available again.

You only get rid of the incumbent Government by having a strong opposition which has been proved beyond doubt that we donít have.

Starmer has had enough chance and over 2 years to prove himself with his 1 policy that the Tories will self implode and sadly itís completely failed because heís heís NOW under another investigation. Hardly forensic and heís making people who support him and call him Mr Integrity look like the idiots they are

The Guardian on Sunday put him behind Boris in a recent poll and today heís under investigation for parliament breaches

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/13/keir-starmer-faces-inquiry-over-alleged-breaches-of-mps-code-of-conduct

Will be interesting to see how deep Boris and plenty of others were in Aaron Banks' dealings over the "Leave" campaign. Banks sued Observer journalist Carole Cadwalladr for libel after a series of articles published the year after the Brexit vote, focussing on the lies, damn lies and statistics used during the Leave campaign. These included some of the obvious stuff like "£350M a week for NHS", "Turkey joining EU" as well as stuff like big posters of lots of brown faced people who were going to nick every ones houses. Not only did the Judge find that all the egregious "Leave" lies were indeed lies, as were claims that all funding was above board and legal, when in fact a great deal of funding came from Putin's Russia. Just let that sink in a bit!

Title: Re: That taxi for Boris
Post by: Rutters on June 13, 2022, 08:03:08 PM
The judge did rule that banks had been defamed but offered no recompense because the tweets and TedTalk were to an  'echo chamber' and therefore of no consequence to Mr Banks.

The appeal will centre around Twitter being a public forum and TedTalks being available on Youtube.

Could you show me where it was evidenced that Bank's funding came from Putin's Russia? Unlike the £500,000 from the Chinese Communist Party to a labour MP, it's just conjecture.

Just let that sink in a bit!

It's amazing isnt it that the £500K bunged to Bejing Barry by an agent of the Chinese Communist Regime never gets aired on Sly or the BBC.

What isn't amazing is how little coverage such massive issue was given by BBC/ITV/Sky gave it and how quickly they dropped it.

It's not journalism any more, it's identitarian activism.

Absolutely correct. Mind you I think the public are seeing through it.

She wasnít able to prove Banks had links to Russia and if heíd taken litigation against TedTalk heíd probably of won by the sounds of it

And it sounds like sheís made herself ill with stress

If you want to get excited that this lady implied that banks had links to russia then admitted she couldnít prove it and changed her defence from facts and truth to the public have a right to know what she Ďsuspectsí argument then knock yourself out

They both sound like idiots to me

It doesnít sound the Ďsmoking guní some think it is

The reason it must be challenged is that easily-led people now feel justified in saying 'Banks is Russian funded' just because one women thought it might be true, admitted it wasn't but continues to say it anyway.

That's why we have defamation laws.

Turns out that the Judge is married to a fervent anti-brexiteer and LibDem candidate.

There's a shock  :mick:

Will be interesting to see how deep Boris and plenty of others were in Aaron Banks' dealings over the "Leave" campaign. Banks sued Observer journalist Carole Cadwalladr for libel after a series of articles published the year after the Brexit vote, focussing on the lies, damn lies and statistics used during the Leave campaign. These included some of the obvious stuff like "£350M a week for NHS", "Turkey joining EU" as well as stuff like big posters of lots of brown faced people who were going to nick every ones houses. Not only did the Judge find that all the egregious "Leave" lies were indeed lies, as were claims that all funding was above board and legal, when in fact a great deal of funding came from Putin's Russia. Just let that sink in a bit!

That's not why Banks' sought damages against Cadwalladr at all. It was over the claims she made repeatedly about him and links to Russian's that she couldn't support with evidence and had to apologise for, so not sure why you feel the need to lie so much.
