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 –…

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.

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.

Tories and undecideds flock to Labour after #BattleForNumber10 #GE17

The SKWAWKBOX If you’re watching BBC News or Sky News right now – or if you buy a right-wing newspaper on Tuesday morning, you might have the impression that Monday night’s ‘Battle for Number 10’ on Sky News and Channel 4 was a hard-fought draw or even a win for Theresa May.

Shocking revelation: Tories SECRETLY met IRA leaders at the height of its terrorist campaign

Pride’s Purge According to former IRA activist Danny Morrison, senior Tories secretly met IRA leaders in 1977 – when the terrorist organisation was at the height of its bombing campaign: Danny Morrison is famous for coining the phrase ‘Armalite and ballot box‘ to describe the Provisional IRA’s then strategy of pursuing armed struggle while at the same time Sinn Féin contested elections.

NHS: Tories SILENT on introduction of £145 charges for 40-minute GP consultations

Pride’s Purge Theresa May has been accused of ignoring news that NHS GP services have begun to charge for consultations.

The first roll out of this newly-privatised GP service has already been announced…

Time To Sack This One Trick Pony Chancellor With A One Track Mind

Well the inevitable happened finally. Yesterday Moody’s downgraded Britain’s Triple AAA credit rating. In 2010 Chancellor George Osborne made it the measure with which him and his Prime Minister should be judged. They embarked on an ideological crusade of cuts as they imposed the most draconian austerity measures in modern times. They insisted that this would balance the budget within four years and bring prosperity back to Britain. George became the darling of an international…
