There might have been the serious offence of Misconduct in Public Office.

To be honest, until now, I thought Boris and the government have done a reasonable job during a pandemic nobody saw coming. Boris was elected on the back of Brexit and probably would not be our first choice in a crisis but that was put on his plate almost from day 1. However the number of gaffs do seem to be piling up so I guess we are heading for a socialist government in the year after.
Or the current government with a new leader.

Goverments always have bad eggs and that will not change. Pie-in-the-sky wishing.
we'll just let them do as they please so without even trying to hold anyone accountable, cos it's always the way :roll:
This is the exact issue we have here, the attitude of "well it has always happened so why is this any different?"

Because we were literally ordered - legally - to do something whilst those that told us to, took the pi** to do what they want! :grr:

There is a wee weasel up here who seems to be making himself a case for future PM! Any time there is an issue with his pal Boris, he is right at the heart of the criticism that heads Bjs way. Wonder if he would mention being PM in his earnings declaration?
Stay safe,

If senior figures in the parliamentary Tory party decide to get rid of BoJo - assuming he doesn't go of his own volition - it doesn't necessarily follow that there would be a general election; and even if there was, there's absolutely no certainty of Starmer being elected PM on the back of a protest vote. Personally, I'd go for Rishi Sunak who, at age 41, would represent a new (younger) generation of leadership. I'm not saying he's perfect for the job, but he's a damn sight better prospect than the likes of Liz Truss and, God forbid, Priti Patel.

How much more of socialist policy can there be than the furlough scheme? The state covering wages when people can't work?

Surely that was a "humanitarian" action that any decent government would have in such a situation. Politics should not be a factor in a pandemic.

Corbyn was virtually unelectable and the Tories got in on the back of brexit with the help of some probrexit northern constituencies. Not really Covid related but as a consequence of mismanaged covid stories and I can definitely see labour winning the next election. Churchill ' won ' the war and lost the next general election - it happens.

Or at the very least a hung parliament

It is a typical socialist action, indivisible from politics. Socialism gave us the NHS, was that a bad thing? The confusion between and/or almost wilful ignorance of what socilism is and the Labour party is what keeps the current lot in power. Just to make my position clear I don't support the Labour party.

Why do so many people hate a Socialist Labour Party that is set up to look after workers rights, wages etc, and provide a welfare system to protect those who are I'll.

What was Tony Blairs government classed as? He won 3 consecutive elections quite comfortably but was it really socialism or something unique that they have now lost?

Tony Blair dragged a Labour Party that had had far too many loony lefties in it, kicking and screaming, towards being a centrist party, thus making it totally electable to a lot of the British public, myself included for the first time. Before that, we had suffered unelectable lefties such as Michael Foot( :grr: ) and Neil Kinnock( :grr: ). I would rate Corbyn even more unelectable than either of those, and don’t even get me started on Angela Raynor :grr:

I wish Keir Starmer all the luck in the world in his attempts to drag Labour away from the left, but I fear there are still far too many ‘Corbynites’ lurking in the background, still smarting from how their dear Jezza was unfairly treated, only too ready to derail his plans, thus continuing to make them unelectable :grr:

As for BoJo, he obviously has not one shred of decency in his body, so it’s either the 1922 committee getting their act together, or he will just ride this fiasco out yet again :grr:

Rant over ;)

Well said Paddy, hopefully the 1922 committee will indeed 'do the decent thing' and oust the morally deficient buffoon..

😷. 💉💉💉

Our fully vaccinated 14 year old has just tested positive for C-19. I had three weeks of Asian flu during the ‘50s so perhaps but unlikely some of those antibodies have been passed on as it seems only a mild attack.

Johnson and his helpers needed assistance from the military to fight the pandemic. So, off topic


Ah! Politicians.
Relatively intelligent individuals in important roles for which they have received little or no related training.
Perhaps a future government would benefit the Country if there were ex-military personnel in parliament?
At least for example, some from the RAFAT.
They currently work well as a team, generally heading in the same direction to achieve a good performance.
When at work they wear masks and are safely spaced.
Even as individuals, going head on, they soon rejoin their colleagues to present a joint face to the world.

Stay safe
