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

Boris is fighting Brexit from within the Cabinet, to protect his party

When Boris was Mayor of London, the battles for the rights of Londoners, the black cab trade,  police numbers,  funding and economic decisions,  were always full bloodedly thrashed out in private,  away from the media.

So discreet was Boris, at one stage, he was getting it from both sides. Black cab drivers were abusing him on the roads as he rode his bike, while Osbo and Cameron were ganging up to force him to favour Uber, and push black cabs off the road. An immovable Boris wouldn’t shift.  He didn’t think it was right, so in the end, Osbo took the issue of Uber away from Boris and handled it himself. Continue reading

Shame. Shame. Shame. Shame on Sadiq Khan as Uber rapes soar!

There have been 32 rapes by Uber drivers in a year and still heartless Sadiq Khan keeps handing out the licences.  The rape figures started to soar when Osbo was handling TfL and Uber, and it is alleged his cheery comment was “Don’t tell passengers!  They will stop taking minicabs! “

The Sun reported:  “The California-based firm has been hit with a string of sexual assault claims in the US and it was banned in New Delhi, India, after a passenger was raped.”

Sadiq Khan could pull Uber’s licence right here, right now, if he wanted to!

During his Mayoral campaign, Sadiq Khan, then one of Labour’s candidates for London mayor, said he would suspend Uber immediately if it emerged just a single driver did not hold genuine paperwork or was not properly insured.  Desperate to be Mayor, Sadiq talked tough!  He,  Sadiq, would protect black cab drivers and kick Uber out of the capital if they put one foot out of line!Straight talking black cab drivers were about to get a painful and entirely undeserved lesson in politics.  Far from being their White Knight, Sadiq has proved to be five and a half  feet of pain in the ass shoved into a 4 foot sack.

Brand May is like an Elvis impersonator – and not very good one at that

The Tories are the only party worth voting for and they are bound to win – but Theresa May is the weakest link.  She is a hard Remoaner but has nicked Brexit’s beliefs to persuade us she is caring and for the people.  I don’t believe a word of it.

Before she became Prime Minister, Peter Oborne described May as “an empty politician without beliefs.”  He said she always put politics before principle. 

The way she handled the child abuse inquiry proved he was right.  May delayed and delayed the child abuse inquiry, until it never happened – campaigners and child abuse councillors lost faith that it ever would happen. Two members of her  panel also sent bullying, abusive letters to some alleged victims, and were ordered to stand down. Continue reading

The Madness of King George

Osbo has accepted the job of Editor of the London Standard, but his editor role has not been approved by the advisory committee on business appointments (Acoba).  So  indignant are his constituents and others,  a petition on site 38 degrees gathered momentum over Saturday with over 100,000 signatures.The organisers of the petition wrote on the page: ‘It’s not appropriate for someone to be a member of the government and also control a huge amount of the media.” Continue reading

Sleazy Riders! The Mail rats out Cameron and Osbo over Uber

The cat is out of the bag!  The Mail revealed today after a flat denial last year, a second freedom of information request has resulted in TfL revealing that Boris Johnson was indeed leant on by Osbo and his henchmen to to lay off Uber.  There was apparently a huge disagreement between No. 10 and Mayor Boris Johnson’s office., because the Mayor wanted fairness and observance of the rules and Osbo and Cameron wanted Uber let off everything scot free.Boris scheduled endless meetings with Osbo insisting minicabs must be capped.   He got nowhere. The argument between the Chancellor and the Mayor became so heated, it eventually became clear to Osbo the Mayor did not intend to give in, particularly as Boris kept applying for legislation to cap minicabs, which Osbo continually refused.
