The Mood Has Improved Post Hancock


The mood in government towards Covid, and accepting that we have to live with it, has noticeably improved since Hancock left office.

Even Professor Whitty is relatively positive:

"Best news of the day: An ever-clearer picture is emerging of the seemingly broken link between COVID case numbers, hospitalizations and deaths, as optimism increases that the vaccine rollout can safely see restrictions lift next month. The Times’ Steve Swinford and Chris Smyth report that Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty told the Cabinet yesterday that he supported the planned reopening on July 19 — which will embolden ministers given Whitty wanted a stricter approach last time round. A Cabinet source tells the paper: “The view among the scientists was that we should get as much open this summer as possible before winter, which will be much more difficult. It was very encouraging.”

Jab saving lives: The Sun has a remarkable graphic illustrating just how successful the vaccine has been at breaking the link between cases and deaths. It shows that through the pandemic, a sharp rise in cases has led to a sharp rise in deaths. But since April, when the vaccine’s protection kicked in on the most vulnerable people, that link has appeared to break — with infections rising quickly again but deaths, so far, staying low."

Labour Bats for Pakistan


For reasons that only Labour Party strategists know, they have decided to bat for Pakistan in the Batley and Spen by-election; whilst at the same time pissing off the world's largest democracy.

The Times of India reports:

"In a last-ditch attempt to woo ethnic minority votes in a bi .. LONDON: In a last-ditch attempt to woo ethnic minority votes in a bitterly contested byelection, a Labour candidate’s flyer features a picture of PM Narendra Modi shaking hands with UK PM Boris Johnson saying "‘Don’t risk a Tory MP who is not on your side". 

There is a fierce battle for the seat of Batley and Spen, which was left vacant after Tracy Brabin became West Yorkshire mayor. Kim Leadbeater, sister of murdered former MP Jo Cox, is the Labour party’s candidate. 

Next to the image, her flyer says: 

"The risk of voting for anyone but Labour is clear". 

Labour Friends of India has condemned the leaflet. 

"It is unfortunate that the Labour party used a picture of the Prime Minister of India, the world’s largest democracy and one of the UK’s closest friends, from the G7 meeting in 2019, on its leaflet," it said. 

"We ask the Labour party to withdraw the leaflet immediately and will also be writing to the leadership about this. The Labour party has a proud history with India."

IRONY KLAXON - Leaks Stopped


By happenstance, since the resignation of Hancock, the leaks about the easing/non easing of restrictions etc have stopped!

Schrödinger's CCTV


Now that Hancock has fallen on his sword, and Sajid Javid has replaced him, questions remain over the cctv.

The MSM are conflicted; some state that the camera was hidden and Hancock was unaware of it, whilst others say it was a clearly visible dome cctv.

Either way a review as to how the footage leaked is now underway, and ministers would be well advised to make sure that they know where all the cameras are in their ministerial offices.

On that note, Sajid has ensured the the dome cctv in his office has not only been disconnected but taped up as well!

Riding The Greasy Shaft of Politics - Hancock Thrown Under The Bus

Whilst the media and others get themselves into a hypocritical frenzy over two consenting adults having an affair, aside from the cronyism aspect of the affair there is one other very important point that appears to have been missed.

If the photos come from a known and visible CCTV camera, then why on earth did they do it in line of sight of the camera (would a security guard really risk his/her job and leak this?)? 

If this footage is from a hidden spycam, then who installed it and how is it security didn't find it?

A cynic might argue that the timing (the footage is from May 6) and nature of this story is designed to push Hancock to resign, rather than be fired for incompetence.

Bercow Joins Labour in Desperate Attempt To Gain Peerage


Absolutely no one was surprised by John Bercow's recent announcement that he had joined Labour.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Labour Party at this difficult time!

NIMBYs Win Chesham and Amersham


The NIMBYs (who oppose HS2 and changes in planning rules) have voted for the Lib Dems in the Chesham and Amersham by-election. 

It’s been Conservative since 1974, and had a Tory majority of  over 16,000.

The NIMBYs gave the LibDems a majority of 8028.

Also, rather remarkably, Labour lost its deposit as its vote fell from just over 7,000 to 622.

-Lib Dem: 56.7% (+30.4) 

-Conservative: 35.5% (-19.9) 

-Green: 3.9% (-1.6) 

-Lab: 1.6% (-11.2)

The irony is the Ed Davey (leader of the LibDems has voted in favour of HS2).

The after-effects of this result will be that the Tories plans for changes in planning regulations will not happen.

Evil Rishi?


It looks like the shine might be tarnishing on Rishi Sunak's halo, as reports indicate that the Treasury (always cast as the pantomime villain by other departments looking for more cash) may have actually overstepped the mark this time in its penny pinching ways.

Emails show senior civil servants protested an instruction from the Treasury blocking guidance that would have explained to those isolating how to use the furlough scheme to claim sick pay.


Now this, as Labour have correctly picked up on, may well have caused some people not to self isolate and thus may well have increased the number of infections/illnesses.

Rishi must be thankful that his grilling by Andrew Neil on GB News came before this story hit the headlines.

Permanent Dick


Dame Dick will never be removed from office, and those that say "even if she kills someone" she will remain are right (as that has already happened)!

By The Pricking of My Thumbs iSAGE This Way Comes...


That deafening silence you can hear is Carole Cadwalladr and her associates in iSAGE (she is their media advisor) coordinating their media onslaught to ensure that 21 June won't happen.

Tin hats everyone! 


As predicted!
