I could almost taste the fear from the Tory candidate whose leaflet said that she too was upset by the national news and shared our frustration but we should think locally.

Don't think my ward has been called yet.


Well, she needn't have worried, given she got 48% of the vote. Labour and Green split 24% and 28% respectively. Ah, FPTP.

Durham beergate:

Surely, if KS is found to have broken rules, he should resign, and from what he has previously said probably would. Following that logic, the PM must as well.

If KS hasn't broken rules, then there's a huge difference between the PM and KS

Neither outcome is good for the Tory party.

It seems short term thinking is leading to them shooting themselves in the foot again.

To add to the spice, KS said BJ should resign just for being investigated by the police, so if he doesn't they can roast him (as I'm sure the Corbyn fans will only be too happy to do so) over double standards.

It just helps with the flawed narrative that "they're all just as bad as each other" so "you may as well vote for us as we won't nationalise your bacon sandwiches"

Staggering, even by Johnson's standards, that he tried to spin losing hundreds of seats as a positive message to carry on what they're doing.

I'm not holding out for anything good in Queen's Speech today. Even Liz doesn't want to be associated with it so has sent a stand-in.

I'm not sure about the new guy. Don't think he's got a long term future

Does anyone else follow Joshua Rozenberg (QC, presenter of BBC's Law in Action radio/podcast show)? Very good at exposing nonsense from this government, even if given his background, he does so very carefully. Some of the gentle skewerings of Braverman and Raab are lovely. He is a bit more explicit today, on Raab's statements (do I need to say that Raab says something stupid every time he opens his mouth, so we don't need to say he has explicitly? Anyway, I have now).

Quote:
2020, Cllr Betts was critical of female sports journalists. He said: "That's women for you, long drawn out, meaningless questions about things they know little about, but that will be most things in life really...best responses would be, are we having a cup of tea luv, have you done the dishes, have you made me supper, it's past your bedtime, I think you have drunk too much. "

He added: "STFU is an excellent response but could cause problems...a simple, you look good today or flowers from the garage or some small insignificant praise about the mushy peas will keep her happy." He continued to discuss complaining to BT and Sky Sports that we "employ cleaners and cooks to commentate on men's sports."

I dropped him an email to find out which ones he considers to be "factual"

Johnson escapes further fines for partying at Number 10 whilst other attendees aren't as lucky. He'll probably claim this verifies his statements in the Commons that no parties ever took place, and how angry he was to find out about them.
