It was his greatest asset – but language is now failing Boris Johnson | Hannah FearnThe way the prime minister uses highly political language designed for electioneering is deeply ill fitted to the febrile state in which the nation finds itself Uhhhm errrrrrr aghhhhh irmmmm so it were .........language was his greatest asset? The man can hardly string a sentence together. His greatest 'asset' is his ability to lye and deceive and suffer no consequence. No it wasn't. He was so bad that even Murdoch fired him. His only asset is, and always has been, the ability and willingness to give rich people everything they ever wanted. And the press loves him for it. Because billionaires own the press. It was only his greatest asset for anyone who fell for his woeful waffle.

'Boris Johnson letting his mask slip is his nod to the Covid sceptics'The PM is playing to his gallery, appeasing his hard-line Tory back-benchers in the lockdown-sceptic Covid Recovery Group while pandering to hard-core anti-vaxxers who are his natural constituency and he doesn't care what you or I think – he believes he's superior Boris Johnson has committed so many breaking of rules, he thinks because he’s the PM he is above being punished or investigated but the times drawing close where he & his party will investigated & they will be punished as to the crimes against humanity is a very serious offence.

'PM would lose his seat!' Bexley by-election swing could boot Boris Johnson out of powerPRESSURE is mounting on the Prime Minister after a political expert warned the swing in Old Bexley & Sidcup could see Boris Johnson lose his seat if emulated at the next general election.

Boris Johnson has promised ministers will leave "absolutely no stone unturned" to establish what went wrong in the case of murdered six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes. The six-year-old's stepmother, Emma Tustin, was jailed for life on Friday after being found guilty of his murder, while his father, Thomas Hughes, was sentenced to 21 years for manslaughter. In court it emerged that the youngster was seen by social workers just two months before his death. They concluded at the time there were "no safeguarding concerns". Solihull's Local Child Safeguarding Partnership has now launched an independent review to ascertain why that decision was made. The prime minister today said it is essential lessons are learned from Arthur's case. He also said he found it hard to read details of the horrific offences committed against a "defenceless little child". Speaking on the by-election campaign trail in north Shropshire, he said: "I just want to say, on the tragic and appalling case of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, like many people I find it hard to read it, let alone to understand how people could behave like that to a defenceless little child". "I'm glad that justice had been done, in the sense that they have both received tough sentences, but that is absolutely no consolation, and what we've got to make sure now is we learn the lessons about that case, we look at exactly what happened, what else could have been done to protect that child. "It is early days, but I can tell you this, we will leave absolutely no stone unturned to find out exactly what went wrong in that appalling case." Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi said he would be making a statement on the case to Parliament on Monday. "We are determined to protect children from harm and where concerns are raised we will not hesitate to take urgent and robust action," he said. "We will not rest until we have the answers we need." Earlier Tustin, 32, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 29 years at Coventry Crown Court. She fatally assaulted Arthur in the hallway of her home in Cranmore Road, Solihull, on June 16 2020, having previously abused, starved and poisoned him. During the trial, jurors heard Solihull Council social workers visited the boy at Tustin's home on April 17 2020. The visit was prompted after Arthur's paternal grandmother, secondary school teacher Joanne Hughes, rang the out-of-hours emergency social services team to report bruises she had seen on the boy's back. Despite social workers then examining Arthur's back and finding a "faint" yellow bruise, they agreed with Tustin and Hughes that it was a "happy household", with no cause for concern.
