Wagging the dog ... I'm needed to lead the offensive against Russia and Putin.

Boris Johnson addresses MPs after Sue Gray report into Downing Street parties finds ’serious failings' | The Guardian |


A RIDICULE OF DEMOCRACY

The speaker of the House introduced a new meaning of lying and deception. When the Prime Minister lies from the despatch box and is caught out by the facts, British members of Parliament are not permitted to state a direct accusation of telling a lie forthright. One must add “inadvertently” to avoid PM embarrassment.

Is this Eton or Oxford linguistic to keep members honored?

Johnson grilled by MPs after Gray finds 'failures of leadership' | BBC News |

  • Boris Johnson is facing heavy criticism from MPs in the Commons in the wake of Sue Gray's report into lockdown parties
  • Labour leader Keir Starmer says he is taking the public for fools and "hiding behind" a police investigation
  • Former Tory PM Theresa May weighs in, questioning if the PM felt Covid rules didn't apply to him
  • Johnson says he is sorry, that he accepts the report and that he will make changes to No 10
  • Gray's report identifies "failures of leadership and judgment" in Downing Street
  • Some gatherings represented a "serious failure" of officials to observe what had been asked of the public, she says
  • Sue Gray looked at 16 events over a 20-month period but the Met Police are investigating 12 of them so she had to leave details out
  • The findings come as some Tory MPs are still weighing up if they want Johnson to continue as PM

Coward, hiding behind and abusing a phony MET investigation … 2 years late and for what … to collect a fine 😖 the investigation should be done within a year. WTF

Boris Johnson 'unfit for office' as call with Vladimir Putin is cancelled | ITV |

Boris Johnson has been slammed as "unfit for office" after his call with Russian Preisdent Valdimir Putin over fears he plans to invade Ukraine, was cancelled as the prime minister was busy updating the House of Commons following the publication of Sue Gray's partygate report.

The prime minister was due to speak to the Russian president at 4pm on Monday amid growing tensions between Moscow and Ukraine - something Mr Johnson has repeatedly said the UK most focus on rather than the allegations of rule breaking in Downing Street.

However, he was scheduled to address the Commons over the partygate report at 3.30pm.

Supremacy - contest between GCC states, the Saudi/UAE break with Qatar.

The failure of the Neocons to overthrow Assad can be blamed on the difference between the two groups of Islamic states. The Salafist Sunni states supported different jihadist groups than Turkey and Qatar with Muslim Brotherhood signature.

The MB were thrown out of Egypt during the reign of Nasser. The were welcomed by Saudi Arabia and the Emirates until they caused internal unrest and were banned. Qatar has a major US military base and will have the full support of the White House. Obama and HRC had very close relationships with Qatar and Turkey ...

The failure to overthrow Assad started the feud with Qatar and the Saudis under Salman. Trump and Pompeo had to intervene to avoid a hot war. Qatar had to pay a $2bn ransom to Islam terror group in the Levant when royalty were taken hostage.

The Abraham Economic Accords has changed the relations in the Middle East. New alliances are being formed.

One of the motives to invade and occupy Syria was for gas from Qatar to find its way into Europe.

Biden and US Congress are playing a dirty colonial game for power and fossil fuel. Ugly ... see Mossadeq and 1953.

Critics of Met Police chief sign open letter calling for her replacement | ITV - Sept. 9, 2021 |

High-profile critics of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick have signed an open letter addressed to Boris Johnson urging for her to be replaced.

The letter - shared with the Daily Mail and written by authors including Baroness Doreen Lawrence and Lady Diana Brittan - accuses Dame Cressida of "presiding over a culture of incompetence and cover-up" and urges the police watchdog, the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) to introduce reforms.

It said: "Dame Cressida Dick ... must not have her contract extended and must be properly investigated for her conduct, along with predecessors and those in her inner circle, who she appointed and who have questions to answer."

The letter added she "should be replaced by an appointee outside of London via a truly independent and transparent process".

Cressida Dick- Met Not Investigating No 10 Over Reported Christmas Party | Evening Standard - Dec. 3, 2021 |

Met Police commissioner Dame Cressida Dick has told LBC no complaints have been received about alleged lockdown parties held in Downing Street last Christmas, as the Labour Party demanded a formal investigation into the claims.

Appearing on LBC's Call the Commissioner this morning, Dame Cressida said: "As far as I am aware, we have had no complaints and therefore I really can't comment on what did or didn't happen there."

Asked if the force will investigate if given the details, she repeated: "We're in the world of complete hypotheticals. I have not received a letter. I cannot comment any further."

War in his backyard ... can't blame Putin for this one can he? Reading next intelligence briefing ...

Four Johnson aides quit in fallout from Downing Street parties | The Guardian |

Johnson's longstanding policy chief Munira Mirza was the first to go, using a stinging resignation letter to accuse the prime minister of "scurrilous" behaviour when he falsely linked Keir Starmer to the failure to bring paedophile Jimmy Savile to justice.

Within hours, three more of Johnson's staff had gone - Dan Rosenfield, his chief of staff, Martin Reynolds, his principal private secretary, and his director of communications, Jack Doyle.

Of course the Director of Public Prosecutions does not handle the individual cases, which are assigned to lawyers under them. But the Director most certainly is then consulted on the decisions in the high profile and important cases.

That is why they are there. It is unthinkable that Starmer was not consulted on the decision to shelve the Savile case - what do they expect us to believe his role was, as head of the office, ordering the paperclips?
