January 2022: Labour calls for a windfall tax on oil and gas profits to lower energy bills. Five months later: the Tories finally U-turn. Their delay has cost British households millions of pounds a day.
🔊On this episode of @ChoppersPodcast presented by @christopherhope The head of the 1922 committee, @SirGrahamBrady , gives his reaction to where the Tories can go post Sue Gray and partygate Listen here ⤵️
I think I’m the only MP to have worked in children’s television and so let me say the decision to end broadcasting of CBBC on TV is awful. It’s a truly inclusive, vital and brilliant channel. It’s a terrible legacy for the Tories to have squeezed out kids TV imho.
Tories have a very odd view of the world. Labour must not oppose. Bishops must not talk about the teachings of Christ. The SNP must not mention independence. Lawyers must not uphold the law. And Tories can do whatever they like. Is that naive on their part, or deeply sinister?
Imagine being convicted of an offence but instead of serving a sentence, your mates *arrange* a review of the justice system to let you off scot-free That's what Tories are trying to do. It's a shameful undermining of an independent system of scrutiny to save one of their own
I see some Tories are calling for a sentence of ten years in jail if you scrawl paint on a monument (that can be washed off) Average sentence for rape is 8 years. Good to see they’re getting their priorities right.
"We try not to eat a lot in one day, even though most of us are really hungry." This sentence should never be uttered by any child, let alone one living in the 5th richest country in the world. Make no mistake, the Tories are responsible for this.
