In the last couple of months the country has seen a virtual queue of scandals and cases of corruption – and not a thing has been done about any of it.
The list of actors is long and starts with the Prince of the Perves, Prince Andrew and his cringeworthy TV interview where he clumsily convinced know one that he did not know his best pal Jeffery Epstein was not a paedophile, pimp and blackmailer, along with his girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell.
Fortunately, at the time, Epstein had handily died while in custody and Ghislaine had gone into hiding.
Now she too is in custody and sealed court documents have been opened that contradict Andrew’s claims that he never had sex with under age girls pimped by the pervy pair.
The Royals have effectively locked Andrew away in a cupboard in the hope we all forget about him but it is expected videos of Epstein and Maxwell’s clients will be unearthed as they were taken on behalf of various government spooks to blackmail the high and mighty.
This was swiftly followed by Tory secretary of state for housing Robert Jenrick who, shortly after meeting former porn king and owner of the Daily Express, Richard Desmond, at a £12,000 a plate dinner, overturned a government inspectors refusal to allow planning permission of a multi-million pound Thames’ side luxury housing development.
Let’s not forget Dominic Cummings, the Tories’ equivalent of that old Blairite warlock Peter Mandelson.
Both experts in political black magic at least Mandelson resigned (for a short time) when he was caught out.
Cummings who had been caught sticking up two fingers to the Coronavirus lockdown brazened out his 200 mile family holiday jaunt with an interview of lies and excuses that came straight out of the Prince Andrew school of public relations. He even gave birth to stream of cynical jokes about eye tests.
Not to be left in the shadows, our very own Clown and Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced he had made his brother Jo a member of the House of Lords along with two of the most virulent anti-Corbyn right-wing ex-Labour MPs John Woodcock and John Mann.
Even Starmer’s so-called squeaky clean anti-semitic Labour Party has had it’s share of controversies.
After getting shot of the last left-winger in his shadow cabinet Rebecca Long-Bailey on the slimmest of antisemite excuses he has turned a deaf’n to arch right winger Rachel Reeves’ praise for long dead arch Tory Lady Astor a proud antisemite and an open fan of Hitler before the war.
Starmer has been equally silent about another right-winger, Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Steve Reed MP who manged to come out with an alleged antisemite comment: “Is millionaire former porn-baron Desmond the puppet-master for the entire Tory cabinet? @Robert Jenrick @PritiPatel”.
Reed claimed not to realise Desmond was a Jew and withdrew his ‘meme’ only to make a second embarassing tweet he withdrew.
Everyone expected starchy Starmer to come down on hard and impose his iron rule of “antisemitism zero tolerance” which did for Long-Bailey in hours. We are still waiting!
And of course the elephant in the room, the biggest, most important scandal of all for Labour, is the 851 page official report which revealed, in excruciating detail, how the party’s highly paid top officials worked and plotted to prevent a Corbyn-led party winning the 2017 General Election.
Far from hunting down the 5th columnists Starmer announced an inquiry into the report headed by his chosen ‘safe hands’.
In the meantime he ignored legal advice and admitted liability for infringing the plotters’ data protection rights and has paid out a reported £600,000 in costs and compensation, and by doing so totally prejudged the ongoing inquiry which is already behind schedule.
Boss of Unite, the party’s most important financial backer, Len McCluskey, condemned Starmer’s ‘misuse of party funds’ and announced that Unite will be reviewing future financial support.
NB. The Tories are now accused of spending £115 million on masks for the NHS with a company that did not produce them (echoes of the ferry company with no ferries) and which turned out to be useless.
