Cosying up with fascists aside, makes you wonder what else they're sneaking through.

Cannot believe that they can be this arrogant and/or tone deaf. This is serious 1996, season 10 of the Major show no fuck giving.

Not to defend Rayner (and hasn't she apologized?) but are they seriously claiming that the abuse was caused by Rayner, not by them voting not to give free meals to poor kids in a pandemic?

Offended by everything. Ashamed of nothing.

The difference being that Major was fundamentally a decent old-school Tory who was unable to deal with the Bastard Squad. Johnson is letting them have free rein because he's one of them.

To me, this decision about school meals is worse than Brexit.

You see, with Brexit, there is a chance of course, however small it may seem, that it may turn out a rip roaring success. Personally, I don't think so, but yes, I could be wrong.

Nobody can say with 100% certainty that Brexit will work, or it will not. We will have to wait and see. People voted for it in the belief that it will work, and as yet, we cannot say that they were wrong.

The school meals issue however, is only going to result in one outcome. Hungry children. For someone to vote, or indeed support that shows such wickedness, and lack of compassion for their fellow human being that their moral compass is not only askew, but thoroughly broken.

I'm hearing from some friends - who I trust - that in central Wandsworth the gangs are feeding the school-age kids who are short of grub. Doing them a favour. Which will later be called in...

It encapsulates the problem with politics these days. Tribalism and loyalty are everything, reason and logic are signs of weakness. There can be no backing down, because it's worse to admit defeat than to die. Because you don't see it as about actual people, but as a theoretical exercise, a topic for debate, practice for your rhetorical skills.

Remember the furore over that Eton exam paper, "justify shooting protesters dead"? This is that in real time.
