The public is thoroughly disillusioned with politics and respect for politicians is at an all time low. Mercifully, Mayor’s Question Time is edited for television, but the session is open to the general public, who are frequently treated to behaviour more suited to the Jeremy Kyle show.Green Jenny Jones uses social media and the national press to launch smear campaigns to attack supporters of Boris Johnson and to smear him personally. This is classic JK contestants behaviour.
Green Jenny Jones has told the Mayor at City Hall “You have blood on your hands” over fire deaths and cycling deaths, before the official investigations. This is picked up by the national press, who castigate Boris in lurid headlines. When he is inevitably cleared by the investigation, Jenny never even apologises, and certainly does not update the press. On the contrary, once some well wisher reported again that the Mayor had blood on his hands to London 24 even though he had been proved completely blameless..
As I reported on one occasion: ” Green Jenny Jones is usually first in line to tell Boris he has “blood on his hands”! The FBU were tripping over their hoses in their eagerness to blame Boris in lurid terms on twitter.” The same behaviour manifests every time there is a cycling death, although it is impossible for the Mayor to protect us 24 hours a day from human error. Evidence of Jenny Jones’ reprehensible behaviour in tandem with the FBU is here.
At one time, simply because I defend the Mayor, I was subjected to a concerted effort to get me removed from twitter. A tweeter told me I would be continually reported until I was removed from twitter. I have reason to believe some Assembly members were involved in this.
The rules of the Assembly are deliberately broken – members are supposed to treat each other with respect. As Chairman, Green member Darren Johnson continually and deliberately ignored the rule on heckling, allowing Labour Assembly members to regularly heckle Boris and allowing heckling in public debates. Once he allowed the FBU to solidly heckle the Mayor at City Hall for over 2 hours, and the language was disgraceful. The evidence is here.
Jenny Jones has an unhealthy interest in the sex lives of others, (a recurring theme on the JK show is people poking their noses into the love lives of others) her interest extending both to the Mayor and the Met Police. Surely there are more important matters to investigate than whether the cops are having sex when working undercover, although Jenny doesn’t think so. With Julia Hartley Brewer, Jenny Jones has criticised Boris’s personal life on twitter, and criticised his personal life in City Hall. She has falsely accused him of lying to the House of Commons, and because I support Boris, she has personally attacked me.
When I finally told her off in no uncertain terms, she acted the injured victim., flounced from the Chamber and had to be consoled with a sweetie. She later recovered, to describe me on twitter as “full of bile” and “rabid”.
Not content with this behaviour, she then launched another twitter attack using another tweeter, @geraldrd The pointless personal criticisms, which included calling me ugly and stupid, were reminiscent of the school playground, and I didn’t bother to reply. Tories never have and never will indulge in such behaviour, nor would we ever connive to get someone thrown off twitter. (When asked if he would allow a computer expert to check his account to clear him of collusion with Jenny Jones, @geraldrd, guess what? refused.)
Smear campaigns on twitter and Facebook, unhealthy interest in other peoples’ sex lives, screaming abuse, this is how the contestants on the Jeremy Kyle show operate. But Jeremy Kyle helps addicts to recover from drug and alcohol problems in rehab, tells warring couples they are selfish and should put aside their difference and put their children first.
He urges foul mouthed contestants to act with dignity and refrain from lies. He tells people to look at themselves and face their faults, he offers counselling, pointing out destructive behaviour has consequences. Jenny Jones, a representative of the people, and supposed role model, sneers at the Jeremy Kyle show, considering such people beneath her. She cannot see she is the Kyle contestants mirror image and she should learn from him.

Assembly Member is not like a normal employee, but in appropriate cases a report should be made to standards committee @angelneptustar
