1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    The scale of allegations and sleaze is beyond belief.

    Well, I know who Twitter thinks it is (just look at what’s trending!).

    PS Obviously don’t post the name here. It is potentially libellous and Elon Musk has rather more money for this kind of thing than I do.

    Yes, a Tory MP and 'ex-minister' was arrested in August 2020, at which time the Met said "These offences are alleged to have occurred at addresses in Westminster, Lambeth and Hackney between July 2019 and January 2020."

    If this is the same MP, it is somewhat worrying that the BBC are reporting that this was reported before that earlier arrest: "In January 2020, the Met received a report relating to alleged sexual offences having been committed between 2002 and 2009."

    And, besides, why has it taken until now for the Met to act on a report from January 2020? Maybe someone should ask Cressida Dick, who left office a month ago? Is the police tardiness in any way a reaction to the criticism they received over Operation Midland?

    Starmer should open his questions with the famous Harry Challenor quote- “it’s like trying to swim against a tide of sewage”. The sleaze that brought down the Major government is a pale frilly imitation of what’s going on now.

    Haven't we worked out yet that laws are only for poor people?

    I wonder who next week’s Tory sex offender will be. Maybe we should have a sweepstake.

    Didn't Boris get rid of all of the 'higher quality' candidates?

    UKIP intake. Rather like the GOP, Tory voters are in complete denial of what their party has become.

    Titter ye not as Franky Howard would have said-
    “Details of the MP’s arrest emerged during what the government had hoped would be “crime week”, with announcements on toughening up policing. The prime minister told his cabinet on Tuesday morning: “Crime, crime, crime is what we want to focus on.”

    ….never a truer word spoken by Johnson.
