Priti Patel has apologised and been rebuked by Theresa May after admitting she gave a misleading account of a personal trip to Israel that included a previously undisclosed meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu.

Well she does fit the 1722 committee's idea of forrin; unlike Half forrin, not trying hard enough Boris.

And I can see the response of the bottom half of the internet. "Don't wanna be giving no paki power...gives them all kinds of ideas...".

Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi has spent the evening touring the news studios pointing out that Priti Patel met with lots of charities when she was in Israel. Somebody should tell him that the 'charity defence' was somewhat discredited by celebrity child molester Jimmy Savile.

It sounds very much like she's going to be sacked soon, perhaps even by Wednesday lunchtime.

Do you know what the most depressing thing is about this story? Give it a couple of years, and it's actually quite easy to picture Patel being restored to a cabinet position - after all, she'd only be following the precedent set by Liam Fox a few years ago. And, of course, past scandals seem to actually enhanced Boris's career. It's almost as if demonstrating gross incompetence whilst holding senior office has become some sort of prerequisite to furthering one's career.

He's handed the short straw as Comedy Minister for Excuses and Gaffes following Fallon's exit. Zahawi has also spotted a correlation among the most lying incompetent ministers unfit for office.

Nadhim Zahawi MP just blamed “Labour remoaners” for Priti Patel’s misconduct and misleading public about it. Tories have lost the plot.

Agree with Arrowhead. This is the way forward in new politics, cock up massively, do or say stupid things and pretend that there is nothing stupid about it.

Maybe the idea has been pinched from the episode of Father Ted when he had to kick Bishop Brennan up the arse, then pretend he hadn't?
