I think the demonstrators were right to tear it down, and I can say that straight cos I am not the leader of a political party who hopes to become PM and topple Johnson. We don't get to choose which laws are applicable to us.
I also agree that there's a huge problem when taxpayer money is used to put up a statue of Nancy fucking Astor of all people, should we put one of Ayn Rand next to it?
What is Starmer's connection to Murdoch? I would have thought RM would be more approving of Johnson/Cummings.
Normally, Murdoch WOULD be far more approving of Johnson/Cummings, after all they ARE intent on carrying out Murdoch's precious Brexit agenda which he's been hankering and seeding for the last two decades.
Something's happened behind the scenes in the last month or so which is apparent from the obvious sudden media scrutiny and focus on Cummings indiscretion of the lockdown rules, normally the media would completely ignore such indiscretions as indeed the have done often enough in the past. So, WHY are they suddenly interested now?
Either Johnson and Cummings have had a behind closed doors fall out with Murdoch, or Murdoch has decided Cummings has too much power and control over his Johnson puppet, or Murdoch has realised with the public awareness of the disastrous ineptitude of the Government in its responses to COVID19 which has led to one of the very highest death counts in the World that both men's heads will have to roll as a scapegoat. Or perhaps a combination of all three?
Starmer realises this, which is why he has been doing his best arse wriggling act possible in Murdochs direction in the last few months, and although presently futile because Murdoch will be lining up his next Tory usurper replacement for Johnson before the electoral cycle ends (either Gove or Raab I suspect), Murdoch might well go for Starmer if this next Tory usurper also fails.
In fact, I believe a deal has already been cut between Starmer and Murdoch in the possible event of this occurence.
Murdoch will possibly compromise the UK retaining Single Market access in the EU for Starmers complete compliance. That will be the deal cut.
So, if you vote Labour in the next General Election you MAY get that which you wouldn't otherwise get with the Tories, but other than that things will be pretty much "business as usual" set to Murdochs continuing agenda with the odd tiny meaningless bit of socialist tokenism and tinkering around the edges which will comprise to the great sum total of "fuck all" in the grand scheme of things.
