Putin is about to start WW3, the Yanks and NATO are preparing what to do when he does. There must be hundreds or stories surrounding this yet what are our media obsessed with? An 18 month old birthday cake. Putin must be splitting his sides!

//And are you seriously telling me TGL would have done what Johnson has done?// No she would not have. And more than that, anybody she caught doing what other ministers and officials have done would have been handbagged within an inch of their lives. On top of that, her policies would not have sought to impoverish the country in order to pursue the ridiculous...

Well if uk troops are involved the irony will be that thankfully they swear an oath of allegiance to the monarch and not the prime minister or I fear none would deploy !

I just wonder what is being buried whilst this ridiculous media feeding frenzy is obsessed with irrelevant cobras.

What is being buried is the reputation of Boris
His government and the mindset and character of civil servants in Downing St
Where someone has presided over a party atmosphere palace in the midst of a global crisis like some modern day Caligula

I was thinking more along the lines of unpopular things getting pushed through unseen, things that ordinarily a non obsessed media would inform us of.

Probably just after the PM does as the actions at 1.05 show in this clip :

The thing is Johnsons 'covid' actions do matter to the public.

Couple those actions with perpetual lies, highest taxes ever, and the country getting saddled with his wifes green policies and you have the problem we have.

You cant get more Tory than me but I have to say Johnson is a catastrophe to the Party, he is also not sowing any signs of being a true Tory. Bliar would have been proud to have him in his Government I reckon.

Johnson needs to go, once gone we can start to build the Party and its reputation back again.

Backing Johnson one needs to be wary of looking like one would vote for a donkey with a blue rosette on, something many of us have accused staunch labour voters of doing in the past (with a red rosette of course for the pedantic)
World War III ?
Don’t be ridiculous.
Whatever happens in Ukraine is not going to affect you or I in the slightest. Who is Prime Minister next week is far more important to the British public.

you know what's going to happen then gromit? These things can easily escalate and get right out of hand.
The Government buries bad news on the last day of a Parliamentary session.

//Whatever happens in Ukraine is not going to affect you or I in the slightest. //

Not true, even if there is no conflict with them going in it will hit the stock markets (pensions etc), food and transport prices and of course Fuel (gas) prices.

The second sentence I agree with.
TTT
Perhaps the Conservatives will hand back the £Millions of dirty Russian money that they have accepted as donations ?

Probably not.

Nice spin there gromit, WW3 to Tory Party donations, impressive, that'll get you a Campbell Oscar!
//The thing is Johnsons 'covid' actions do matter to the public.//

x2 with a few bells and whistles added.

The two pressing issues of the day are not mutually exclusive. The issue with "partygate" (or whatever name you want to give to the culture of arrogance and hypocrisy that seems to have permeated No 10) is not what was done but who did it, who presided over it and what they were ordering everybody else to do at the time. Normally nobody gives a toss what politicians do so long as they do not cause them too much trouble. But this was different.

There are tales of untold hardship that originated from that time: people unable to visit dying relatives; people unable to attend funerals of those who did die; people unable to meet with and support vulnerable loved ones. There are other tales of people being issued with penalty notices for engaging in everyday (and often completely harmless) activities, such as the two ladies taking a stroll in the country whilst drinking a cup of coffee. These were outrageous impingements on their liberties. Yet most complied because they believed it was the right thing to do (which often it wasn't, but that's another debate).

Then we turn to this lot. Tale after tale emerges of them carrying on their business (and pleasure) as if the rules did not apply to them. This is followed, when their misdemeanours are revealed, with obfuscation and excuses, much of it a downright insult to the intelligence of normal people.

It does matter. It matters a lot that the country has a leader who clearly believes that his work (which seems recently to consist mainly of visiting hospitals and vaccination centres and simply getting in the way) and that of his ministers and officials is far too important to be troubled by the petty rules with which everybody else is expected to comply. More than that, their pleasures, relaxing after work with cheese and wine on government premises to "destress" after a long day, is necessary only for them as if nobody else has had such a stressful time over the last two years.

Much as it pains me, Mr Johnson needs to go. His leadership, which displays no Tory qualities or values at all, is crippling the country and destroying the Tory Party.
I really don't understand, and I mean this literally, why anyone expects anything different. I grew up with Thatcher as PM, and remember a teacher telling us, when she left, that nothing would obviously change.
And she was right, we just get more of the same over and over. Leave him where he is... there is little point in changing anything unless we massively renovate it. And that won't happen.
“ Whatever happens in Ukraine is not going to affect you or I in the slightest”

Come back in a few months when your gas bill has quadrupled and say that ;-)

In fairness there’s lots in the media about other stories
And the issue isn’t really the cake is it?
//And she was right, we just get more of the same over and over. //

Well it depends on your definition of change. We got Bliar, that was definitely a change (for the worse) from my point of view.

And are you seriously telling me TGL would have done what Johnson has done?

//Leave him where he is.//

No, gross incompetence, arrogance and lies should not be allowed to prevail. Let alone the green rubbish that will cripple us all.
//And are you seriously telling me TGL would have done what Johnson has done?//

No she would not have. And more than that, anybody she caught doing what other ministers and officials have done would have been handbagged within an inch of their lives. On top of that, her policies would not have sought to impoverish the country in order to pursue the ridiculous "Net Zero" target which is utterly unachievable anyway without sleight of hand (such as burning wood being "carbon neutral"). To seek to place the current incumbent of No 10 alongside TGL is ridiculous.
Question Author
yes judge if only we had TGL today.
No way of knowing what she would have done, ttt. I can only guess.
