#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

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…

Tories breaking law at polling stations – photograph, report, do not be fooled #GE17

Tories breaking law at polling stations – photograph, report, do not be fooled #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX Worrying reports are reaching the SKWAWKBOX of apparent illegal behaviour by Tory candidates or their representatives at some polling stations. The Tories appear to be affixing election posters to the walls of polling stations or of the grounds of the polling station, in clear breach of electoral law regarding campaigning within 250m of a polling station or attaching election materials to polling stations: Tory poster put up at polling station in Copeland –…

Queues at polling stations. The UK is hungry for change #GE17 #GOTV

Queues at polling stations. The UK is hungry for change #GE17 #GOTV

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX said years ago that if you give British people an actual alternative worth voting for, they would. They certainly have one now in Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. There’s a consensus that turnout is key in this election – and that a high turnout will favour Labour (at least in England and Wales). The SKWAWKBOX is receiving reports of queues at polling stations all around the country. One polling station attendant, who…

Exclusive: May, Rudd ‘stripped anti-extremism unit to focus on #Brexit’ #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX As the Press Association reported, Theresa May – in the preface to the announcement of her planned assault on the very human rights she says islamist terrorists hate – talked of a ‘security service review’, supposedly to allow security services to “call out extremism here in the United Kingdom”: Theresa May expects security service review Theresa May has said she expects police and security services to launch a review after three terrorists slipped…

Met taking May electoral breach re Abbott ‘very seriously’ #GE17

Met taking May electoral breach re Abbott ‘very seriously’ #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX As the SKWAWKBOX reported at the weekend, a viewer has made a formal complaint to police about Theresa May’s comments concerning Diane Abbott, which the Tory leader made during the BBC’s Question Time special. The comments – that Abbott planned to wipe the DNA records of ‘criminals and terrorists’ from police databases – were without foundation and making a false statement about a candidate during an election period is a criminal offence under section…

May could face loss of seat over #Abbott comment electoral breach #GE17 #BBCQT

I won’t hold my breath on this one. We know what should happen but we’ve seen the CPS drop the ball on 30+ cases of electoral fraud. The SKWAWKBOX As the SKWAWKBOX reported on Sunday, Theresa May has been reported to police over false claims she made during Friday’s BBC Question Time special about Diane Abbott and police DNA records. May told the studio audience and millions of viewers around the country that Abbott had…

Never had a party political broadcast make you want to applaud? Watch. #GE17

It perfectly encapsulates what is great about Labour, what is great about this nation. It portrays the terrible threat facing us and our NHS from the Tory party that despises it and routinely lies about it. But it is also full of that rarest commodity in modern politics: hope. It shows the heart and heroism of the people who work in this country’s greatest achievement – the NHS. You’ll fall in love with it, and with them, all over…

Desperate Tories insult terror victims with lies about #shoottokill #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX has shown the Conservatives routinely lying about their Labour opponents and Labour’s leader Jeremy Corbyn in their attempts to retrieve their disastrous campaign. But the Tories sank to a new low today when they propagated a known lie about Corbyn’s position on ‘shoot to kill’ in terror situations: As SKWAWKBOX follower Danielle pointed out so promptly, the Tories are referring to a video interview between Corbyn and the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg…

In 2016 Corbyn was mocked for this. Nobody’s laughing now #GE17 #Police

In 2016 Corbyn was mocked for this. Nobody’s laughing now #GE17 #Police

The SKWAWKBOX When Jeremy Corbyn instituted the new practice of asking questions from the public in PMQs (Prime Minister’s Questions), he was mocked and jeered by arrogant Tory MPs each time he mentioned a member of the public – which in itself speaks volumes. But one question in particular echoes deafeningly now. Late last year, just before Philip Hammond’s Autumn Statement was due, Corbyn stood to ask a question of Theresa May from ‘a taxpayer’…
