Penny Mordaunt will basically do anything for a job. She supported Liz Truss’s ideas to get in her cabinet when her own chances of becoming PM slipped away. Now she’s having another go but her ideas about what she would and wouldn’t do if she got the job remain extremely vague which basically amounts to having no idea at all. So all in all what we do know about Penny Mordaunt is that she is ambitious and that’s about it. She also changes her track to suit the moment and to best serve her own purpose and ambition. We also know nothing about what her policies are because it seems that they are basically made up on the hoof. Strikingly similar to Liz Tuss who just couldn’t fill in the details and hid from real scrutiny: Mordaunt would be equally disastrous as the Prime Minister. Surely by now she should recognise the error of such ways given the quick demise and shining example that Liz Truss gave as a way in which to not do things. However it seems not to be the case. Mordaunt remains vague and non-committal and as such unconvincing.
The Conservative Clown Show goes on and on and just keeps giving. The Conservatives have managed to turn both politics and economics into a standing joke. Forget ‘Live at the Apollo’ and just watch the news. Now we hear that their main Clown is to rejoin the Show. The bungling buffoon is coming back so the plot gets even more ridiculous. I have previously highlighted the lack of talent in the Conservative Party and this has been confirmed by recent events. They just can’t think of anyone except to be their leader except a failed Prime Minister. Poor Rishi Sunak who appears to the only one with an ounce of talent and credibility. Sunak was the main man behind Boris Johnson and whilst Johnson was donning the hard hats and pretending to be a working class person it was Sunak who steered the ship economically. Sunak was the sensible one whilst Boris was the Clown performing for the media. Johnson has little grasp on economics and even less grasp on the truth. Without Sunak Johnson was nothing but a buffoon. Johnson is incapable of the serious stuff. Johnson will not be capable of steering a course through the ‘Cost of Living Crisis’.
Johnson has not got things done: Brexit remains unfinished and ‘Levelling up’ was a lie to obtain power
Let’s think about what Boris Johnson has not finished. Brexit remains undone and as a result Northern Ireland has no functioning government because of questions that remain unfinished regarding the Northern Ireland protocol and the questions remaining about the transfer of goods without a hard border with the rest of Ireland. There had also been no evidence of ‘Levelling Up’. As I have said this was always just a slogan and attempt to derail real Socialist values. It was an attempt to steal traditional Labour Party votes and a blatant attempt to mislead by lying to voters with empty promises.
As we await the bold plan of the latest installment of the Tory Prime Minister number 4 , Liz Tuss, I am reminded of another bold and cunning plan by Baldrick of Black Adder fame. It might appear that the 2 have something in common with one another with the announcements of both that they have a bold and cunning plan. The similarities might not just end there though because Baldruck’s plans always came to nought and similarly those of Liz Truss’s may have the same auspicious ending as well. I suppose only time will tell. However during the leadership race I was pretty unconvinced by Truss whose wooly thinking often exposed her. I was also not convinced that Truss had any edge at all over Sunak and mostly to the contrary actually I thought Sunak gave the more convincing arguments. Remember that Truss’s plans to alter income tax actually didn’t benefit Pensioners at all. What struck me most about Truss’s win was that there must be a severe lack of any real talent at all in the Conservative Party at the moment if Truss was eventually crowned as the preferred candidate.
Video evidence exposes ‘ Levelling Up’ as a fraud. Boris Johnson’s policy exposed as a cover up to divert funds away from urban areas to wealthy Tory rural areas. Rishi Sunak was filmed admitting that he personally diverted money allocated to urban areas to more wealthy rural areas under Tory control. So this is what the Tories meant by levelling up.
‘Levelling up was always just a slogan without substance. Levelling up was just a slogan designed to attract Labour Party voters with empty promises. Levelling up was a slogan designed to divide loyalties in a blatant attempt to defraud voters and grab power.
Socialist economics are green not red which is an important point to make in the week when COP26 is taking place. Socialist economic theory can have a valid position in any economy striving to take care of both it’s citizens, it’s global citizens and the local and global environments. This is unlikely to be the case when referring to a free market economy based on inequality, exploitation and free for all of capitalist systems of economic theory. This point should not be overlooked by COP26.
Bodge-it certainly sees himself as a Churchill like figure and that is basically what he bases his image upon. He sees this as the moment of Britain’s greatest need and he sees himself as the figure likely to step in to lead the Country out of it’s darkest hour towards a brighter future. All this really shows is that Bodge is full of his own importance and vanity and is in fact just a manipulative, self seeking individual from a privileged background. Also what Bodge-it fails to grasp is that Churchill reacted to circumstances brought about by other despotic figures in the world at that time. Bodge on the other hand is only trying to fix the mess of his own making and Cameron’s I should add. There is no real comparison between himself and Churchill. Churchill was a great man and Boris is well just a bit of a prat really. So when I hear statements from Bodge suggesting that he will make Britain the greatest place on Earth well you just have to laugh it is so absurd. This man cannot deliver on any of the outrageous promises he makes. He was only trusted with half a job by Theresa May and he managed to mangle and bodge that one up as well. Being a Mayor with little to do really and being a Prime Minister to lead and inspire are 2 very different roles. Bodge will just make a hash of being Prime Minister and lead the country towards ruin. Bodge has no compassion or understanding for those whose livelihoods will be wrecked as a result of his silly political meanderings. For Bodge-it it’s all just a game without serious consequences. He shows little understanding of the real world because he knows that he personally will not have to face the consequences of his silly public schoolboy pranks. Britain is certainly on the verge of catastrophe but the situation is in fact traceable back to Bodge-it-Johnson anyway and the misinformation of his Leave Campaign and it’s outrageous or liberal use of the truth and the figures during that Campaign.
Tories are desperate to rid themselves of the continuing embarrassment of Brexit so they seem to be placing their faith in the dodgy building firm of Hunt & Bodge it. They seem to want a quick fix to Brexit (a Rush Job) in order to rid themselves of the continued embarrassment of seemingly not being able to successfully get the job done. In order to hide their incompetence they have given the work to Hunt & Bodge it a dodgy local firm with a poor reputation which rumour has it will soon be going into liquidation anyway. But wasting public money by giving contracts to dodgy businesses has never really worried the Tories anyway.
Both Hunt and Bodge it claim that they can get the job done on time by the deadline but neither can guarantee the quality of their workmanship or that people will not suffer as a result of their labour’s. Health and Safety are not really matters of concern for Hunt & Bodge it!
Let’s not forget the useless David Cameron who was probably the worst British Prime Minister of all time. David Cameron should not be let off easily fir his incompetency: but instead he has be allowed to profit from his profound incompetence and bad judgement. Let’s face it, David Cameron was most probably the worst Prime Minister that Britain has ever had. His lasting legacy of incompetence can still be witnessed today with the ongoing debacle of Brexit. Not only had he given opportunity to wreck his Country but he also opened the door to to wreck his own Conservative Party through a posthumous demonstration of their ineptness and inadequacies to cope with the stupid promises that he made in order to bribe his way into power. No wonder he legged it and disappeared under a rock as soon as the results of the Brexit Referendum were known.
