Dirty Tory Corruption

What is depressing is it won't make any difference. The doesn't matter how corrupt and sleazy the Tories are, come election time, the British public will vote for them anyway.

Threaten their football clubs and there is outrage. Steal government money on an industrial scale and the British public couldn't care less.

As Mr H L Mencken said, "The common man's a fool".

No.10 probably wheeled out Truss today thinking that most of the surfs would confuse the name with Trust in the headlines.

You can Truss it mi know!

The smell from this gov't is going to require more than a few hundred Chinese ventilators at 3x the price (that now either lay broken down or just remain unfit for purpose):

That is the attitude that spawns dictators.

No it doesn't.  I'm all for sending Blair to jail. 

But people aren't much interested in gossip from the corridors of power, unless it's got sex.

Personally I think it is laughable that the incoming PM has to pay for flat rennovations to 10 or 11 Downing Street from their own pocket. Do they get to rip out all the cupboards and appliances and take them with them when they go ? :)

Other countries must be laughing at us, concentrating on this nonsense when there are more pressing things to hold the government to account over. That we seemingly can't even provide our PM with an official residence without going into some sort of massive muck raking exercise.

For flat rennovations, each PM should be given a budget from the State to rennovate it when they take over. They could choose to be frugal and not use it if they wish.

Personally I think this sort of muck raking does the opposition no favours at all. Let's here some policy and what they would do to make the current situation better, instead of this absolute nonsense.

Anything that shines a light on BJ's disgraceful behaviour is fine by me.

There's a £30K allowance from the public purse. That's £30K per year. Over and above that is another matter. 

I very much doubt that any PM will be required to pay for rotten anobium punctatum riddled floor joists. This is more vanity related or 'spruced up' type refurbishment.

Well if that sounds reasonable in principle, provided it is enough to do the job.

I have no idea of the magnitude of the job or how much it costs.

The country should pay for it to be refurbed to a reasonable standard for each imcumbent. But obviously there is a limit to how far that should go.

you did have a choice, own it and stop making excuses.

I voted Labour to try and get another hung parliament.

I can't stand either party.

But what was the other choice besides spoiling the ballot?

Nobody knows what to do about it.

Protests are often seen as a waste of time, for the great unwashed.

There's no other viable alternative to vote for.

Even the mayoral elections sadiq is by far favourite, why is that?

It's cos we don't live in a democracy

My wife and I have decided that we will vote Labour in the council elections even though we are more than happy with the job that the incumbent Conservative council have been doing. Shame, but anything we can do to highlight our disapproval of the BJ regime has to be done.

It is immoral to vote in local elections on the basis of national issues.

Of course it isn't, it may be counter productive on local issues but the MSM will be monitoring the local results and using them as indicators for the next GE, so needs must.

Nobody ever takes local election results seriously as a predictor of how the next GE will go, especially since it is 3-4 years away.

The MSM always do the "this is what would happen if it were a general election" but its a load of tosh. I wouldn't want to waste my vote on such a pointless exercise.

Nothing is more important to us than getting rid of the BJ regime, so we will try anything. Every little helps.
