The snivelling shitestain :roll:
As Stephen Bush pointed out, he said he would do everything to stop the super league and when pressed he suggested a “windfall tax”, which of course would mean it had started.

He was also very specific about "people's property".
Meaning
Owners own the clubs so there's fuck-all we can do.

But a bit of virtue signalling never hurt the polling base.

While he was doing that little lot, this is what Truss was doing.
Truss was working in ‘the real world’ whereas Tehan was a no-nothing politician and bureaucrat. Liz is not only hailed as a conquering hero in the Tory party for cut and pasting trade deals, she’s regarded as a leading intellectual in the cabinet.

It's becoming apparent that Keir is trying to do too much by himself.
What's lacking is the image of a tight knit frontbench who can tag-team all these "Bad Tories" messages and keep then on the airwaves.

Lisa Nandy doing some sterling work on Russia. Perhaps the most high profile shadow cabinet member on a story that would be headlines for months if Corbyn and Milne were taking money from Russians within Putin’s circle. But just tumbleweed.

Defence minister Johnny Mercer dismissed from government
Junior minister had indicated he was preparing to quit over concerns about prosecutions of Northern Ireland veterans

Mercer’s a snivelling little worm who was happy to piss on peace in Ireland to achieve Brexit. He’s not the brightest bulb but this appears to be a specialist area for him. Or at least giving a pass to state sanctioned torturers in the Troubles.

But Johnson pushing him hopefully won't play well with the plucky patriots who believe that if are boyz can't shoot unarmed untermenschen in the back in broad daylight, then the terrorists have already won.

Just to be sure - I don't agree with Mercer's stance on troops and trials. Yet, the enemy of my enemy etc...

The problem, as I see it, seems to be that Johnson is intent on kicking this into the long grass, while Mercer demanded action now. I'm sure that Johnson isn't so much secretly on the side of accused soldiers as he's profoundly annoyed that there's yet another thing demanding his attention, and that little gobshite Mercer wouldn't stop banging on about it. This is more about his laziness and willingness to say whatever he needs to at the time, than any political conviction.

Absolutely. Johnson just wants to eat and shag, even according to his own former colleagues. And then be told how exceptional he is for doing it.

As far as his view on the issue itself goes, I'm going to bet that he's of the Groucho Marx school: these are his principles, and if whoever he needs to use to get what he wants doesn't like them, he has others.

Oh yes, we can stir the pot on this one without endorsing this rancid proposal. Mercer as an ex-military man views leadership integrity as a matter of life and death. And discovered the hard way Johnson has none. Would you trust Bozo to have your back on the battlefield? Is a fair question to put to voters who’ve served in the military.
