Spy game. Gove and Osbo spotted on holiday in Germany

What can they have to talk about?  Michael Gove and George Osborne were spotted this week on holiday together in Germany.  The former Cabinet pals were pictured attending Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle in the Bavarian town Bayreuth – an opera about the struggle for power.

The pages of the London Standard seem dipped in acid, as George works out his angst trashing his nemesis, Boris Johnson and ripping into Theresa May in the nastiest possible terms. Continue reading

“The real Chancellor” carves up George Osborne

As Chancellor,  George Osborne spent the least time of anyone in the Treasury sorting out the economy.   Ever the delegator, he left that minor job to someone else.  He was tied up with the important stuff,  permanent manoeuvres to ensure that he succeeded David Cameron as PM.  Smoozing,  threatening, devoting hours every week to cultivating Tory back-benchers and ingratiating himself with allies in the Press, this was the work that really mattered. 

Rupert Harrison, Osbo’s Chief of Staff, was “the real Chancellor”.  When Harrison left, the economy went A over T.  Now Harrison turns on his old boss to slaughter George for an attitude to Brexit that is “too gloomy and over the top”. Continue reading

Under Sadiq Khan, London is going to the dogs

Eleven victims died from knife crime in 16 days, reported the London Standard on 11th May 2017.  There has been a shift revealed by statistics which shows that only a quarter of knife carriers are now linked to gangs. This compares to 10 deaths a year from 2008/9 and 2010/11 under Boris Johnson.

Our brilliant police believe more young people are now carrying knives for differing reasons, including status, criminality and increasingly for self-protection. Continue reading

Pious Chuka and Starmer ignore the 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
