Theresa May’s new administration is a government of liars, incompetents, deluded fantasists and racists – and that’s just Boris Johnson.
Let’s recap as UK politics has been moving faster than a Russian athlete.
Cameron - the person who kicked off Brexit to try to fix internal Tory party bickering has resigned and is off to his temporary accommodation – a pal’s £16 million abode.
Nigel Farage - the man who brewed up a dirty racist storm and got ordinary people voting for Brexit out of fear the same way Hitler got people voting for the 3rd Reich – has also resigned. He said he “wants [his] life back” well – so do the rest of us and there is no chance of that any time soon.
Theresa May is Prime Minister. So for all those whining about un-elected politicians in Europe (which is untrue as MEPs are elected) here is a totally un-elected Prime Minister. A PM who was happy, when she was Home Secretary, to preside over the abuses of Yarlswood detention centre, the incarceration of pregnant women and the sexual abuse of female refugees and who refused to help migrant children alone in Europe fleeing war.
The liar and bigot who racially insulted President Obama is head of the Foreign Office. (see blog 184 Boris Johnson racially insulted President Obama. Why is that ok?)
Let me run that one by you again -
Boris Johnson, the liar (and that is official – he was sacked as a journalist for lying) and spoilt brat bigot who racially insulted the American President, is head of the Foreign Office.
Bo Jo apparently likes limericks so her is a new one of mine…
Boris the racist and liar
Survived on the politics zip wire
You think it’s a joke
He’s a pig in a poke
But its true and your pants are on fire.
Andrea Leadsom, would-be PM, has been put in charge of The Environment. This is a woman who thinks you can only care about the future if you have children of your own… Oh – and she’s also a proven liar.
Sajid Javid who, as Business Secretary, did slightly less than nothing to save the steel industry in Wales is now Communities Secretary. I bet the Wales ‘communities’ are dancing for joy. Javid rushed in at the 11th hour just as the industry collapsed. The collapse had been on the cards for years – exacerbated by the UK government’s failure to support France and Germany’s request to protect Europe from Chinese steel over-production. So Javid's key skill seems to be closing stable doors long after the horses have bolted.
Add to Javid’s appointment that of Priti Patel and Theresa May shows her 1980s genteel internalised racism. Each of the brown skinned politicians are in positions that white establishment have historically seen as ok for the darkies. ‘Communities’ (obviously because ‘they’ are not really part of Britain but a sub-set) And Priti Patel gets Aid – feeding black babies… or not. Let’s see if P.Patel – who is an unapologetic advocate of cutting foreign aid to all the countries we exploit (oh and used to be in favour of the death penalty) – can live up to the nastiness of that oily smug Rees-Mogg. (see blog 24 - Cut Foreign Aid – what a spiffing idea).
NB Rees-Mogg recently enjoyed himself sneering at Mark Carney – the governor of the Bank of England. Rees-Mogg slated Carney for his pre Referendum predictions about the UK economy. Most of those predictions have already come true!
Jeremy Hunt, the total bad joke of a boy who has no political or moral credit among health professionals stays as head of the National Health Service.
The new Secretary of State for Leaving the EU - David Davis - has made it clear he is prepared to use EU workers, resident in the UK, as bargaining tools when Article 50 is invoked. Let’s see how Hunt manages when health workers from continental Europe leave and the ques at A&E and in operating theatres and surgeries grow and grow and grow.
Creepy Liam Fox is head of International Trade. Yes, the same Liam Fox who had his own personal MPs expenses scandal abroad with his wee pal Adam Ferritty – sorry Werrity…
I would go on but the nightmare pantomime is just too ghastly.
And where is the opposition?
On a positive note, Surprise Success
