After all the Platitudes the ToryDups stick Two Fingers up at Police, Nurses & Firefighters

After all the Platitudes the ToryDups stick Two Fingers up at Police, Nurses & Firefighters

Over the last few weeks the emergency services have demonstrated just how amazing they are in spite of the cuts to their numbers and resources and that they’ve not had a proper pay rise for 7 years. Last night the Tory/DUP coalition of evil chaos cheered enthusiastically as they voted down Labour’s amendment to end the cap on their pay. Now we know what they really think of them.   MPs vote to reject Labour’s…

As ToryDUP takes us back to the 19th Century Ireland elects a Gay Prime Minister

As ToryDUP takes us back to the 19th Century Ireland elects a Gay Prime Minister

When my Irish Father first took myself, my brother and sister as children to visit Ireland, Leo Varadkar was not even born. The Republic’s new Taioseach was born on 18th January 1979. He was appointed leader of Fine Gael on 2nd June 2017 and appointed Taioseach on 14 June 2017 by Dáil Éireann at the tender age of 38. Not only is Leo Ireland’s first openly gay Prime Minister, he’s also the son of an…

Paul Dacre has thrown his biggest hissy fit yet!

Paul Dacre has thrown his biggest hissy fit yet!

Well it looks like Martin Rowson at The Guardian has REALLY hit a nerve with this one. The Daily Heil, the newspaper that brought us “Hurrah for the Brownshirts” and “Isn’t Mr Hitler wonderful” and has spent the last decade demonising Immigrants, refugees and the EU has published a diatribe calling the likes of the Guardian and the independent media sites that challenge their bigoted agenda “Fascists of the Left”. After spending a couple of…

Video: Guido fake news (again) on Corbyn’s #QueensSpeech bow — The SKWAWKBOX

https://videopress.com/embed/gMej1Sjk?hd=0 The Guido Fawkes blog is rather keen on flinging around accusations of ‘fake news’. However, rather like a monkey flinging its own droppings, Fawkes is usually the source , readily stooping to deliberate misinterpretation to smear. The SKWAWKBOX has been the target on more than one occasion, with Fawkes ignoring what’s actually written in its […] via Video: Guido fake news (again) on Corbyn’s #QueensSpeech bow — The SKWAWKBOX

Greater Fool 2.0 – Contributors wanted

Greater Fool 2.0 – Contributors wanted

With Greater Fool 2.0 I’m looking for contributors to help make it a more representative and informative platform. To that end I’m looking to collaborate with other people who’ve perhaps liked the idea of writing articles themselves on politics and current affairs but perhaps don’t have time to manage a full blog themselves or don’t want the extra work of keeping it up and running. If you fit that description I’d love to hear from…

Ditch the labels and unite #WeAreLabour

Ditch the labels and unite #WeAreLabour

Since last Friday morning we’ve seen many of the MPs who failed to support Jeremy Corbyn as leader and so called columnists of the left who wrote him off come back to the fold eating various degrees of humble pie. The likes of Polly Toynbee and Nick Cohen have admitted they were wrong and many Labour MPs have declared that Jeremy Corbyn now has a mandate to lead. Many of us knew it all along…

#GMB consider withdrawing support from #McNicol

#GMB consider withdrawing support from #McNicol

The SKWAWKBOX Ian McNicol has long enjoyed the support of enough of the NEC to remain in his post, in spite of widespread dissatisfaction – in fact fury – among members at his performance. A key pillar of that has been support from the GMB union, together with that of Unison. With those unions’ representatives behind him, he has enjoyed the backing of the narrowest of majorities on the Labour NEC. A senior source at…

Plans for the future and Greater Fool 2.0

Plans for the future and Greater Fool 2.0

When I started this blog I had good intentions to maintain a regular blog of my own to try to help to inform people of the mechanics of UK Politics, filling in the gaps of mainstream media misinformation. Unfortunately life had another plan and I pretty much ended up just reblogging other people’s work. A combination of my own health issues and family issues meant that I struggled to find the time or energy to…

#May’s #DUP crutch and its paramilitary links #ConfidenceAndSupply

#May’s #DUP crutch and its paramilitary links #ConfidenceAndSupply

The SKWAWKBOX The hypocrisy of Theresa May and the Tory Party sinks to new depths. After their ‘friend of terrorists’ smear campaign against Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, such is their desperation to cling to power they do not merit that they are leaning on the crutch of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) a ‘party on the hard right fringe of British politics’, according to OpenDemocracy. A party with strong paramilitary links as well as being anti-LGBT rights, anti-abortion and anti-environment….

Think #May’s in trouble now? She’s still facing police investigation for #Abbott lie

The SKWAWKBOX Theresa May is a broken, shambolic figure this morning. It looks like she may try to limp on in a ‘confidence and supply’ arrangement with the Democratic Unionists – to the dismay of huge numbers of Northern Irish people: English colleague to me this morning: “Fiona, what do you think of the DUP?” pic.twitter.com/AQdto4aHhF — Fiona McAuley (@FiFiSG) June 9, 2017 But don’t forget that Theresa May’s diminished figure still has a huge…
