I haven't noticed you defending the cabal on this thread for a long while.

I thought that maybe you had become so embarrassed that you had put the whole thread on ignore :wink:
Yup, was The Guardian.

The cabal get going, trying to get the Starmer cabal in.

I see that one of our Haywards Heath town councillors is an administrator for all 36 anti ulez closed Facebook groups ... Who needs local roads and transport eh ?

Tory staff running network of anti-Ulez Facebook groups riddled with racism and abuse https://www.theguardian.com/politic...ddled-with-racism-and-abuse?CMP=share_btn_url
At least we now know why she’s only been able to attend 55% of the committee meetings’s she’s meant to attend.

Conservative party staff and activists are secretly operating a network of Facebook groups that have become a hotbed of racism, misinformation and support for criminal damage.

An investigation has identified 36 groups that appear to be separate grassroots movements opposing the expansion of ultra-low emission zone (Ulez) schemes to reduce air pollution. They do not say they were set up by the Conservatives as part of a coordinated political campaign.


The closed groups – which have a combined membership of 38,000 – have been a forum for Islamophobic attacks on Labour’s London mayor Sadiq Khan, with members calling him a “terrorist sympathiser” and a “khaki punt” and saying they would pay to get him “popped”. Other posts promote white supremacist slogans, antisemitic conspiracy theories and have encouraged the destruction of Ulez enforcement cameras.
Into the woodchipper with the lot of them. Dragging Sunk down by the ankles.
The Tories need to give themselves a hard look in a mirror.

Tory MP defects to Labour.


Cat amongst the pigeons time? Could we be looking back in a few weeks and seeing today as the day that set in motion Sunak calling a snap GE for ASAP instead if waiting for a Rwanda flight?

An increase in asylum seekers heading to to Ireland proves that the Conservative party’s Rwanda plan is working, Rishi Sunak has claimed.

In an interview with Sky News’ Trevor Phillips that will air on Sunday morning, the prime minister said the “deterrent is already having an impact because people are worried about coming here”.

Where did you cut and paste this from?

My 50p is on The neutral Guardian.
Yes. The Guardian has a political leaning in its editorial pages and it is firmly to the left.

But…

I challenge you to pick up an issue on Monday morning and find anything in the news pages that isn’t based on fact. Seriously. You’ll struggle.

You can dismiss it in your own head all you like but you don’t get to invalidate its news output simply because you don’t like its politics.

Presumably he can point to evidence of a corresponding decrease in asylum seekers arriving in the UK - or alternatively he is talking nonsense as usual.

If he wants his neck to snap, snap it would be.

The only hope he has is to hang on to the last minute and hope the economy is on an upturn, then promise unimageable tax cuts to congratulate himself and the nation for everyone's fantastic work.

Did I just see you reply to potty?

Oh dear. Schoolboy error.

Here is someone more fulfilling to have a conversation with. ???

There was a case a couple of months back, when a Facebook group opposing the 20 mph speed limit in Wales was found to belong to a Tory councillor in Gateshead. He had also voted in favour of a 20 Mph limit in his area. I guess this may have prompted a lot more digging.

Ministers have been accused of making a crisis in the recruitment of teachers even worse after axing funding to a much-praised programme helping older workers start a new career in the classroom.

Ministers have been accused of making a crisis in the recruitment of teachers even worse after axing funding to a much-praised programme helping older workers start a new career in the classroom.
To be fair, from the perspective of the older workers in question, axing it could be considered a humanitarian intervention.
