BBC didn’t want you to see this #Corbyn video. Wonder why #GE17

BBC didn’t want you to see this #Corbyn video. Wonder why #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX On Sunday, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a short – less than 10 minutes – but towering speech that Sky News covered in full. And the BBC covered not at all. The speech is terrifying to the Establishment, because the statesmanlike Corbyn looks and sounds every inch the ‘Prime Minister in waiting’ that they’ve always told us he couldn’t be – and with his personal approval ratings now exceeding those of the Tory…

BBC STILL misreporting Kuennsberg’s known-false #Corbyn #shoottokill report #GE17

BBC STILL misreporting Kuennsberg’s known-false #Corbyn #shoottokill report #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX In the wake of last night’s awful events in London, the 4th most-watched item on the BBC’s website is an interview between Laura Kuenssberg and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. One that the BBC knows is misleading and has still not corrected. As the SKWAWKBOX showed in January, Ms Kuenssberg was found guilty by the BBC Trust of misleading reporting in the video in which she presents Corbyn’s comments on the ‘shoot to kill’…

May reported to police for Abbott comment electoral breach #GE17 #BBCQT

The SKWAWKBOX As the SKWAWKBOX revealed on Friday night, Theresa May appears to have broken electoral law during her question and answer session with a BBC Question Time audience. In front of a television audience of millions, May alleged that Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott had advocated the removal of the DNA samples of ‘criminals and terrorists’ from police databases. Abbott has, of course, done nothing of the sort. She has advocated the removal of…

Explosive: Rudd tries to censor election opponent to hide Saudi terror allegations #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX wanted to remain silent until this evening out of respect for the victims of last night’s terror atrocity and our hearts go out to those affected and their families. But information that has come to light – and Theresa May’s clear attempt to politicise events – mean that it would be a dereliction of this blog’s purpose and duty to wait. Theresa May this morning attempted to blame ‘too much tolerance’…

Theresa May breaks law in #BBCQT special #GE17

Theresa May breaks law in #BBCQT special #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX Apart from some desperate spinning by the Tories and their pet media – including an email from party chair Patrick McLoughlin criticising Corbyn’s lack of enthusiasm for incinerating millions – there’s a huge consensus that Jeremy Corbyn won last night’s BBC Question Time special by a distance, in spite of aggression by a number of Tory plants in the audience who were allowed more questions than anyone else. Even some right-wing commentators agreed:…

9 Tories of 120 #BBCQT audience ask 29% of questions. Still #CorbynWins #GE17

9 Tories of 120 #BBCQT audience ask 29% of questions. Still #CorbynWins #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX The BBC Question Time Leaders’ Special tonight was a remarkable event, because there was only one Prime Minister on show and it was not Theresa May. What makes it all the more remarkable was not the composition of the audience, but the balance of the questioners. It is called Question Time, after all. The audience consisted of, at a rough count, 120 people. Out of 120 people in a 90-minute special, not everyone…

Theresa May ‘under investigation re Brexit profits’

Theresa May ‘under investigation re Brexit profits’

The SKWAWKBOX Theresa May’s woeful start to her General Election campaign – which has seen Labour gain thirteen percentage points in voting intention polls – looks set to become a full-blown disaster. Reports are beginning to emerge from multiple sources suggesting that Mrs May is under investigation by the Propriety and Ethics group of the Cabinet Office in connection with an alleged failure to declare an enormous conflict of interest on Brexit related to profits…

The huge, hidden Tory #NHSBOGOF fire-sale #NaylorReport #GE17 #NHS

The huge, hidden Tory #NHSBOGOF fire-sale #NaylorReport #GE17 #NHS

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX published a video this morning that an observer had created concerning the Naylor Report, which Theresa May said – without explaining – that she fully supported. May treated it as if the ten billion pounds implementing Naylor will cost was an additional Tory investment in the NHS – but in fact, it’s the opposite. £10bn is the cost of forcingthe NHS to sell off its assets on a BOGOF (buy one…

May loves #NaylorReport. EVERYONE must see/share (video) #GE17 #NHS

May loves #NaylorReport. EVERYONE must see/share (video) #GE17 #NHS

The SKWAWKBOX The SKWAWKBOX has been inundated over the last couple of days by people sending the link to a video, with messages to the effect of ‘you must do something with this’. Having watched it, they’re absolutely right. During her TV interview with Andrew Neil last week, Theresa May repeated her usual nonsense ad nauseam, but when asked about Tory plans for the NHS, she only talked about The Naylor Report. May admits that…

New YouGov projection – HUNG PARLIAMENT

New YouGov projection – HUNG PARLIAMENT

TheCritique Archives by Martin Odoni Without wishing to get too excited too quickly, I thought I should leave this here. The polling company, YouGov, are actually predicting that the Conservative Party will fall sixteen seats short of an overall majority in the House of Commons! You read that right, everyone, the latest projection is a Hung Parliament. From a twenty-plus-point lead for the Tories about five weeks ago, to a Hung Parliament! We need to…
