Journalist Peter Oborne has written repeatedly that the then PM Cameron and Osbo had done a deal with the Blairites. He later wrote that Cam was planning to kick out the right wing Brexiteers in the party, in favour of Tristram Hunt and Rachel Reeves, forming a “new” Remainer Tory party.
That plan was foiled by the guts of one man – Boris Johnson, backed by a rock solid phalanx of Brexiteers. All the advantages were on the side of Remain. The money, the media, the manpower were Remain’s – but every Brexiteer was so fired up, they were prepared to prevail or die. Continue reading

Boris Johnson went for “spineless” Sadiq Khan in the Standard today, with all guns blazing. Boris beat a 19 point swing to Labour to take the Mayoralty, so he knows what he is talking about and under Sadiq, London, once number one city in the world, is going to the dogs.
The stinging criticism of the previous Mayor must have cut liked a whiplash, but what does Sadiq expect? Nearly every pledge broken! Housing, fares, and his promise to black cab drivers broken that if one Uber driver was found with no papers, he would pull their entire licence! All just empty words! A thousand broken regs. from Uber, and nothing’s changed. Continue reading

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.”
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
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. Continue reading
