I thought that large fines, upto £10k were for flagrant breaches of the lockdown regulations.

Why is he just getting fixed penalty notices?

He'll say he was sorry - so what - he's done that already. Doesn't change a bean - he knowingly and brazenly lied to parliament. He's now only sorry he got caught out. If he doesn't resign then the ministerial code is simply bad quality bog roll.

Tories have a free vote today apparently https://twitter.com/pippacrerar/status/ ... 1oaagxhs2g

I predict minor but ultimately ineffective rebellion

In which case the Tories will have abandoned their sensibilities and gone 'full-Trump' in terms of idolization of a personality, and we can only hope they get kicked out of it at the next GE.

Ian Blackford has repeatedly stated in Parliament that Johnson is a liar.

Of course the saddest irony is if you climbed into a Tardis and travelled back to the long-ago time of 12th December 2019 to tell yourself "Watch out! That Johnson is a liar and a law-breaker!", hand on heart your past self reply would be along the lines of "Well no sh.t, Sherlock. Whaddya mean you haven't brought next week's lottery numbers with you? Now why are babbling on about Chinese bats FFS?".

TBH you could even travel back to 1998 and plonk yourself on the sofa next to your very startled, very young past-self and say "You see that bloke with the stupid hair who Ian Hislop is taking the piss out of? That posh guy. The one lying as we speak about discussing organising a violent assault on another journalist. Well brace yourself ... turns out he's a liar ... and a criminal. Shocking I know! Oh BTW you wouldn't happen to know anybody in US counter-terrorism as I have some important information to pass on about September 2001. I should probably go shoot Hitler now too, I suppose"

And yet here we are today ... :|

Yeah it's an old green screen trick, they give Kirsty Wark something to maintain her eye-line with and then use CGI to insert Fay Jones afterwards.

The VFX look fine but it looks like they ballsed up the audio and have accidentally left the placeholder sound track of the sound engineer just making random meaningless noises to allow Kirsty to time her responses correctly. It's all very clever. ;)


Sorry ... what was that you are saying ... A real person? ,.. Are you sure? ... The actual MP ... oh dear.

Right that's it, I told my gf that we're going to have a full inquiry on whose fault it is that I haven't changed the bathroom lights yet like I promised. In the meantime I'm not going to be able to make any comments.
I've never had a signature, and it never did me any harm
