    Parties and Politics - Tories wavering

    North Shropshire By-Election - Tory voters rebelling?

    Possible parties by civil servants at Number 10, definite cash for questions by a Tory gammonesque Brexiteer MP and an election of a outsider v a local, toxic party v innocuous party

    Dr Neil Shastri-Hurst v Helen Morgan

    One of many parties from last year ...

    On Wednesday, guests at the party – hosted by the campaign for Shaun Bailey, then the Conservative mayoral candidate for London – were grappling with a hangover that took a year and a day to hit.

    I suspect there were many many end of year informal sandwich gathering in the many many many offices, shops, factories etc that never went into lock-down. 10 mins saying bye to the people you have shared an office with all day anyway probably didn't feel too 'wrong'. Not like you'd arrange a special dinner and travelled to that... Anyway posing for a photo at one - Idiotic



    The outsider my be the insider soon

    You think all the Tory parties were saying goodbye for ten minutes? Totally unplanned?

    I am sure many were planned and many lasted more than 10 minutes. As were many many many other 'gatherings' that led to the spike of infections.

    Party member numbers. I'm sure there is a correlation between the number of people in an organization and the the number of sandwich gatherings. Impossible to prove but most people I know are sociable by nature in the work environment and some would possibly bend the rules a little at the end of the year. Or perhaps it was just parties for Tories that infected the nation.

    Whataboutism. Is there a Tory word for wumao?

    The Tories are the government. They gave the rule that there should be no social.mixing. They demand the public obey but do not think such rules apply to them. It is an unfortunate tendency of the swamp like nature of the current Tory Party.

    Ted Heath will be turning in his grave.

    I can’t believe after nearly 2 years that Covid is a UK political tool. Surely it is serious enough for a cross party committee with recommendations made by that committee?
