    I thought I would make a thread on what caught you eye in the news good or bad. This follows on from last week when I posted about the MP Lee Anderson who suggested we could cook a meal from scratch for 30p and foodbanks weren’t needed if we could cook.

    So today another Tory MP Racheal Maclean the safeguarding minister has said “That people struggling with the cost of living should take on more hours or move to a better-paid job”

    How does a comment like this help the most vulnerable in society. Those that can’t work, the disabled pensioners or even those that can only take up low paid work for what ever reason. I find Mp’s and ministers are so out of touch with with the public, the comments they come out with are beyond nonsense.

    Ah but but…

    Labour and LibDems didn’t really win you see. It might look that way, but it’s just that lots of people who would have voted conservative decided the weather was too nice and they’d stay in their gardens for the day.

    Personally I think the blue wall will turn back red at the next election. Boris was good for one thing only and with ll the contempt and lies that’s gone on, I don’t hold much hope. Having said that I personally don’t hold much hope for any party.

    In relation to that, what caught my eye is that Dowden resigned, with a clear message to Boris Johnson:

    ““Our supporters are distressed and disappointed by recent events, and I share their feelings.”

    Which, of course, Boris Johnson argues isn’t about Partygate, Tories grooming children, or Tories watching porn in parliament – voters are still distressed by Covid, that’s it.

    “Asked if the defeat was because of his leadership, Johnson said the results should be examined in the light of Covid and the cost of living crisis.”

    In the answer to Dowdens resignation, he says:

    “Whilst I completely understand your disappointment with the by-election results, this government was elected with a historic mandate just over two years ago to unite and level up. I look forward to continuing to work together on that.”

    I’m not sure if the guy genuinely is delusional, or whispers himself to sleep by repeating “they must love me” and “it’s not me, it’s them”. That work so far has done wonders for all of us, at least people can proudly point at their blue passports for identification at the food banks that are running dry due to the vast increase of people requiring them.

    This isn’t even about conservative or liberal anymore. Don’t care whether or not you’re a Brexit supporter, Pro-EU, tory, labour – looking at Johnson and being okay with him desperately clinging to power as if his life depends on it, constantly, delusional quoting that it’s “the will of the people” etc.. He’s a joke. A really bad one. And the sooner he goes, and is replaced by a guy that genuinely has the interest of the country in mind, rather than his own or that of his leeches sucking his teats, the better.

    Self-serving pricks. The entire tory front bench, with Johnson and Mr. “i’m proud of my awful suit” Rees-Mogg at the front, should get fired to the moon.

    Much like tories souls, i guess. Claiming to be patriotic, but actually just being awful and some even evil.

    Replace BJ with a guy that genuinely has the interest of the country in mind ? Trouble is, where are you going to find a politician who fits that description?

    Quality rules for natural gas to be relaxed under plan to beat energy crisis

    Kwasi Kwarteng is poised to allow lower quality gas into Britain’s pipelines amid a scramble to protect the country from a looming energy crisis.

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/quality-rules-for-natural-gas-to-be-relaxed-under-plan-to-beat-energy-crisis/ar-AAYQ0h1?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=7f32a895a8fc4d99b56344f73543425d

    The problem is You will you more of it to get the benifit. How that will protect the country of sky high energy bills beats me. Similar saga as E10 petrol.

    Now the way I see it is either these ministers have a severe lack of common sense in their brains or they take us as being thick.

    Hidden Alliance of former WEF Young Global Leaders working in Lockstep to enforce the Great Reset include Macron, Trudeau, Ardern, & Boris Johnson

    A hidden alliance of political and corporate leaders is exploiting the pandemic(and now the ukraine crisis) with the aim of crashing national economies and introducing a global digital currency, and these leaders include President of France Emmanuel Macron, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern, and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson.

    This isn’t fiction, it’s fact. Just listen to the President of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab, himself say the following –

    “I have to say when I mention or names like Mrs Mirkle, Vladimir Putin and so on they have all been Young Global Leaders of the World Economic Forum, but what we’re really proud of now is the young generation like Prime Minister Trudeau, the President of Argentina and so on. So we penetrate the cabinets.

    https://expose-news.com/2022/01/27/great-reset-wef-young-global-leaders-trudeau-macron-ardern-boris/

    Members of the school’s very first class in 1992 already included many who went on to become important liberal political figures, such as Angela Merkel, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Tony Blair.
