So What Did The Tories Hope Nobody Would Notice They Were Doing?

A bunch of slimy gits? Surely not! Yet here are few of the things they slipped out as they all ran away from scrutiny for the next 13 weeks. What a bunch of chancers!

The first one was they have dropped huge rail improvement programme’s while keeping the HS2 Folly. They have simply dropped plans to electrify lines on the Midland Main Line, Kettering, Sheffield, Nottingham, Cardiff, Swansea and around the Lake District.

Now we have the lowest number of Police for 30 years! Surprise, surprise that Official National Statistics show a 10% rise in recorded crime! Naturally the Home Office claim there is no connection between the two facts.

We now learn that we have fewer soldiers as well. So much for ‘National Security’. Since that slime-bag Fallon became Defence Secretary we have had a drop of 7,000 full-time soldiers.

Amazing to discover that Boorish Johnson produced a damning list of countries who simply ignore the concept of Human Rights. What he didn’t point out was that Afghanistan, Bangladesh, China, Pakistan, Somalia, and Saudi Arabia are all on that list and we sell all of them weapons! Oh yes, our government is far more interested in making money from arms sales than the worries about anyone’s human rights. Remember that post-Brexit.

We also discovered that 52 former ministers just happen to have found jobs outside Westminster that are related to the roles they had as MPs. There are supposed to be rules about this piggy-backing but the body, which cost us £281,000 last year, have simply given up because they were set up but have no powers. Nice touch that!

Something else the Tories didn’t want getting out is their 89-page report that, in conclusion, says we do not have enough teachers of mathematics in our state schools. Hardly going to worry May or Greening though if we are honest.

It also seems that the Magic Money Tree was growing when it decided it wanted to take on a court case over Brexit. Somehow they managed to find £1.1 Million of our money in a case that they lost.

You’ll probably need a decent search engine to find more information on each of these ‘quietly released’ items because it’s unlikely the BBC will shout any of them from the rooftops!

The Largest Rise In Crime In England & Wales For 10 Years

Well, just look at that! The WORST crime figures for 10 years just happen to be released on the last day of term and as May-Day runs to the hills for three weeks. Chance? Yeah, right!

The total number of crimes reported to and recorded by the police rose by 10% between April 2016 and March 2017, that’s 458,000 offences, to almost five million in total.

Violent crime was up by 18%, robbery by 16% and sex offences by 14%.

There was a 9% rise in homicides and there was also a 23% increase in firearms offences – equalling a further 1,200 crimes – and a 20% increase in knife crime – meaning 5,800 more offences.

The figures come as Home Office data shows the number of police officers across England and Wales have fallen 0.7 per cent to 123,142 officers at the end of March this year, the lowest number since records began in 1996.

Remember that for the vast majority of this time Tess May was the Home Secretary and she kept telling everyone they were, “scaremongering” when it came to the results of her cuts. No wonder she has run away for three weeks.

How Much Are Those At The BBC Paid With Tax Payer’s Money?

Sure, they love to claim that it isn’t a TV Tax, it’s a Licence. That’s all tosh, that’s like calling the 12 weeks Holiday the MPs have a Recess. Utter bollox!

This is a very unscientific list of the pay some at the BBC get given who we all regard as simply talent-less. Nobody will agree with all our choices but, know what, we don’t care! It’s our list.

Gary Lineker, £1.75 million as a presenter. Huw Edwards, £550,000 for managing to read the news. Claudia Winkleman, £450,000 for – buggered if we know! Matt Baker, £450,000 for being the dullest man on TV.

Alex Jones, £400,000 for talking twaddle with Baker. Stephen Nolan, £400,000 for being obnoxious?

Sue Barker, £300,000 for being the dullest woman on TV. Danny Dyer, £200,000 for claiming he can act. Emilia Fox, £200,000 for playing the part of a plank for the last 15 years. Len Goodman, £200,000 for his ability to say, “Seven”. Laura Kuenssberg, £200,000 for speaking directly to Number 10 on a daily basis.

John Pienaar, £150,000 for trying to be as much like Kuenssburg as is humanly possible. Mel Giedroyc, £150,000 for trying to appear on every light-entertainment show. Adrian Chiles, £150,000 for crawling back to Radio 5 when his shit hit the fan.

So that’s our pick of the so called ‘talent’ at the BBC that nobody here would miss if they were all sacked at 12 o’clock tonight. Just how many of them really would get another job outside of the cosy club that is the BBC? We fancy it would be very, very few.

As If Education Under The Tories Isn’t Already In Crisis Here Comes Another Funding Shortfall!

We are all getting used to May and Greening telling porkies about the underfunding of our schools. They don’t like to talk about new teachers throwing the towel in after only a few years and the more experienced staff retiring just as soon as they can. Very soon the people expected to actually do the teaching will be the teaching assistants who have seen their numbers slashed time and time again.

It is all being geared towards unqualified adults taking lessons and being paid whatever the accounts department thinks it can get away with.

When they talk about “record levels of funding” the likes of May and Greening never point out that the reason for this is blindingly obvious! There are more pupils in our schools now!!! It doesn’t mean our schools are better off – far from it!

The reasons for this increase are twofold. There simple are more children of school age in the country and they have raised the school leaving age in a roundabout way. If you haven’t got somewhere suitable to go to then you have to stay on at school. Gosh, they make for a hardworking 6th Form!!

Now the next little avalanche to hit our schools is that number of pupils in England’s secondary schools is set to rise by almost a fifth within the next decade. Government figures show there are expected to be around half a million more secondary age children by 2026.

Where the hell do you put all of those students and where on earth do you find the qualified teachers to teach them? Be honest, May and Greening couldn’t a toss!

A Hole-In-One From 15 Floors Up

Quite amazing! He is 15 floors up in his hotel room and there is a rubber ring in the pool below. Can this keen golfer drop a flip-flop into the hole?

A LINK to him trying even more holes-in-one:

What Were Other MPs Doing While Spineless Hammond Was Avoiding Admitting What He Had Said?

The heartless, Spreadsheet Phil rushed to a TV studio this morning to claim that MPs were being nasty about him. At no point did he deny that he had claimed Public Sectors were “Overpaid” – not once. Adopting the typical slimy Tory attitude to people who ask them questions he ignored that and decided to talk about something.

Offering no apology whatsoever for his crass, insensitive remark all he pretended he was concerned about were leaks from cabinet meetings which, he claims, are supposed to be a private space.

This could almost be funny from this stuck up prat but he does imagine he will be the next leader of The Nasty Party when they stab May in the back during the conference holiday season.

The hideous, out of touch git has clearly forgotten what public sector workers have been doing in the last few months. Such as being very, very involved in 22 March: Westminster attack – 22 May: Manchester Arena bombing – 3 June: London Bridge attack – 14 June: The Grenfell Tower fire –19 June: Finsbury Park Mosque attack.

Meanwhile, over in the real world, Jeremy Corbyn was here in Dorset commemorating the Tolpuddle Martyrs along at Tolpuddle. Worth noting not a single Tory MP, although we have four across the county, made an appearance.

Ouch! It’s Not Funny As A TV Chef Cuts His Finger LIVE – {It Is A Little Bit!!}

Poor Donal Skehan was doing some chopping live on TV. Be fair, it’s something we have all prayed for! Yes, he slices into his finger! If only it at spurted as well, ‘Bottom’ style!

Notice the extremely hygienic way that Julian Clary picks up the SAME knife and just carries on chopping the herbs. Nice!
