Does Britain still have a Home Secretary? Self-isolating maybe?  Hmmm

I assume its her turn to hide in the fridge?

I voted for Starmer for the Labour leadership contest in the end. Couldn't spoil an online vote and think he'll get the easiest ride from the media going forwards.

FFS, just what we need at a time of global crisis, a govt of idiots without the most basic mastery of their brief. My kids know Lima's the capital of Peru.

And your kids probably knew Dover - Calais was an important trade route.

Sadly, that will already be enough to disqualify them from any great Office of State.

Tory backbenches in revolt over govt's "inadequate" response to Coronavirus. Even hard right diehards like Iain Duncan Smith, the architect of the current benefits system, is saying benefits have to be increased immediately and waiting times for UC cut immediately as more and more people are going to lose their jobs or get reduced/zero hours. Tobias Ellwood says govt must step in and pay workers' wages. Extraordinary.

Well if they are serious they could start by reinstating unfit to work benefits that they are currently purging. Out of the blue cancelling and then the ill have to prove that they are unfit before payments will resume. No notice and on-going now. I wrote a letter of support yesterday for a family member who is currently going through this despite being assessed by many doctors, many times, as unfit.

Presumably, those feelings were based on a detailed and forensic review of the evidence?

No. They were based on listening to news, reading papers. And on his successful prosecution of the Scottish Parliament against internal allegations that the courts found unlawful. Which they were fined 500,000 for, Smart arse.

Glad to see you supporting the independence of the Scottish Judiciary at the expense of the Scottish Executive.

Many of your ilk were rather less supportive of its independence when it found Boris' prorogation of Parliament unlawful, even after its finding was vindicated by the UK's Supreme Court.
