Political Bollocks

Ballistic

We the opposition party will aid the government in the fight against the hidden enemy, the Covid 19 virus, unless we can score some political points against the government then all bets are of and we will willingly stab you in the back at every opportunity we get.

Sir Keir Starmer has adopted a fairly clinical, restrained, analytical approach so far, and a lot of Labour MPs believe it has paid dividends - forcing Boris Johnson to concentrate on detail where he's not so comfortable.

What we get today though is a significant raising in the stakes.

The Labour leader is now, in effect, saying that Boris Johnson will be personally culpable if there is a rise in infections, if virus spreads or if there is an increase in deaths because of his handling of the easing of the lockdown - which he frankly thinks has been mishandled.

Sir Keir says the PM has rushed the test and trace scheme out, has ended shielding too suddenly, there's been conflicting messages, and, of course, there has been the blow to public confidence from the Dominic Cummings saga. (must add that little nugget in)

Some in Labour take the view that this should have been Sir Keir’s approach all along - that actually he's been a bit bloodless and let Boris Johnson off the hook.

But the thinking of Team Starmer is that Boris Johnson is one of those politicians who always manages to evade responsibility.

They would argue that has been evident in this crisis by the fact he has been able to hide behind the scientists or been able to express regret for what has happened in care homes while somehow distancing the government from any responsibility.

So, what they want to do is to pin the blame very directly on Boris Johnson for the mistakes they believe will be shown to have been made in the coronavirus outbreak, and which have already led to us having the highest death rate in Europe.

Starmer would do better to support the government rather than trying to score points off Boris.
He hasn't come out with anything positive as yet.
Have Labour got another toothless lion for a leader?

According to the radio news, they had an heated PMQ today?

looks like the opposition are trying to blame Boris for anything just in case it happens, after the weekend of sunshine chasers/ morons a second wave is expected ?


Or is he realizing the roll of the Opposition leader, is not to be involved in government policy so is having an hissy fit?

Too soon..........or just topical ?

The irony of multi millionaire spoilt brat footballers showing their ‘respects’ got me.... wasn’t the bloke a convicted armed robber ?
A few years ago Gerrard was crying when his kids nearly got kidnapped, his house got burgled, the Arsenal bloke Ozil sobbing last year when he got held up, Delli Ali robbed at knifepoint in his house a few weeks ago.
It’s a funny old world, soapbox moment over, back to cleaning for rounds...

Starmer - man of the people ! He’s another Blair, basically a lighter shade of blue, and a knight of the realm to boot.
I can’t wait for Corbyn to take his seat in the Lords, maggot portrays himself as anti establishment but he’s a member of the Privy Council....

This may sound quite dismissive but . . . good luck with that.

I’ve no doubt Baroness Chakarbati or Sir Keir Starmer or Cherie Booth or the IRA’s friend Corbyn will say this maggot has the right to free expression

If this works, long winded but a different view from the riots in London and USA .

Wow!!!!! What a fantastic narration by a very switched on, all about, articulate young lady. I'd like to know who she is and what she does for a living. She could be a cop, or a lawyer; whatever, she really puts the Floyd situation into a perspective that I haven't seen equalled. Methinks that we will see more of her on the big stage.
