Pious Chuka and Starmer report Leave, but ignore dirty dealings of Remain

Chuka Umunna continually insists that the Leave campaign “pledged” to pay £350M to the NHS.  Oddly he has admitted in print that no Leaver ever explicitly made such a pledge – their remarks were only suggestions.  This is confirmed by a quote he gave to the London Standard. (below).chukaumunaLabour is in such disarray, this is the sort of trivial snitching Chuka and Keir Starmer are reduced to.  Much ridiculed “independent” Professor Bob Watt from Buckingham University has even reported the Leave campaign to the CPS, charging them with “undue influence.” Continue reading

Osbo’s plan to get back into power! Oh dear God NO!

In his all consuming race for the top, George Osborne has made more effort than most.  According to Hickey of the Daily Express yesterday, Osbo had “speech lessons to lower his voice, a Caesar type coiffure to hide his receding hairline and he went on the trendy 5:2 diet” to slim down.”georgechildcatcherIn vain.  But now George acknowledges his persona was at fault.  He says “I wasn’t showing enough vulnerability”  Oh dear God No!

Thanks to Osbo, the national debt is nearly 2 trillion

‘We act now to fix the roof when sun is shining. I’ll introduce new fiscal framework with permanent commitment to run surplus in normal times.’ George Osborne blithely tweeted this when he was still Chancellor last year.  Now the extent of his selfishness and incompetence is revealed.  osbocommons The UK national debt grows at a rate of £5,170 per second.

It totals £1,781, 601,972,500 at this second, but is zoinking upwards as I speak. Continue reading

Jam packed! Traffic chaos, but STILL Sadiq Khan won’t cap minicabs!

Every road in London is choked with minicabs, but still TfL are issuing minicab licences at a rate of 700 a month!  What is Sadiq Khan thinking?  Why does he not keep pushing  for the legislation that will allow him to impose a cap?sadiquberAs long as George Osborne was in government, no Mayor had a hope in hell of getting the legislation to cap minicabs.   Sadiq Khan lobbied the government while George was Chancellor, but he must have known the answer would be a big fat NO.  A black cab driver who is a member of the LTDA, told me Sadiq lobbied for the legislation, but was refused, when George was still Chancellor.

Remainers are in denial and have no idea what matters to voters

After all Remain have been through, they still don’t get it.  Their attitude on social media is, if possible, even more patronising to Leavers.  But 35% of the 93.3 million who voted Labour in the General Election voted Leave and these voters are flocking to the Tories.mayosbohammondYouGov reported recently that only 48 per cent of the 3.3 million would still vote Labour in a general election held now.  Some nine per cent – around 297,000 people – have switched to the Tories.

Mini cab drivers are livid because finally they have to comply with regs

Until now, minicab drivers have had a free ride as far as regulations are concerned.  George Osborne, bosom buddy of Travis Kalanick, the Uber boss, made sure that mini cab applications were rushed through with the minimum of fuss, while black cab drivers have regulations and security checks up the ying yang.

Osbo was the Uber villain, but now he's gone

Osbo was the Uber villain, but now he’s gone

No more.  The regulations worked out by previous Mayor Boris Johnson are coming into force and Osbo is gone. Continue reading

The way that PM May sacked George Osborne was justice

In the Independent “i”, John Rentoul talked about “A very vindictive adieu to Osborne”.  This is not true.  The way that George Osborne has behaved has gone way way too far, he was damaging the party and it could not be allowed to continue. mayosbohammondThe borrowing of the Chancellor has been grotesque as he gambled everything to meet his over optimistic targets, a gamble that failed. His attacks on tax credit cuts and the disabled broke the Tory pledge to support the working man and the needy.

In September last year, George announced to Dan Hodges that the Government was planning to knife Boris Johnson,   He told Dan he would “smash Boris to smithereens” , when he quit as Mayor.  This was announced with pride, as though we should admire such behaviour. Boris’s crime?  He delivered two Mayoralties, the first with the best results since 1992,  was a massive help in GE15 , and set the plan for economic recovery, which Osbo took credit for.  Naturally, he had to be “taken out”.
