posted on 21/7/2020 23:36Russ In Cheshire's 'The Week In Tory' - Gramsci.

Or, as he says, his summary of the last 5 days:- 

1. Matt Hancock told Parliament lockdown started on 16th March, the day SAGE told them to, so all those unnecessary deaths didn’t happen
 
2. But lockdown started on 24th March, and all those unnecessary deaths did
 
3. The govt announced a “New Deal” for infrastructure, with £600bn of new money
 
4. Turns out, only 0.8% of that is new money
 
5. The £34bn “new money” for the NHS was actually announced in 2018
 
6. The govt then announced £3bn of additional funding for a possible second wave
 
7. That’s less than half the £8bn NHS England said it needed just to stand still, which hasn’t happened
 
8. Matt Hancock said wearing a mask is mandatory
 
9. Downing St said wearing a mask ISN'T mandatory
 
10. So Gavin Williamson cleared it all up by saying they're both right ????
 
11. England’s Chief Nurse confirmed she was dropped from briefings cos she refused to back Dominic Cummings
 
12. A poll found public trust in UK gov ability to manage the pandemic is lowest worldwide, and I nearly fainted
 
13. The govt cut the budget to end FGM by 84%
 
14. A Tory MP texted his intern to ask for “no strings” fun “pweeease”.
 
15. She replied that she was having a “bad mental health day”
 
16. He said maybe if she thought of “fun times” with him, she’d feel better. Nice.
 
17. Brexit: and now we’re back in control, it was confirmed the govt cancelled the Huawei 5G project because Donald Trump told them to
 
18. The Institute for Govt found 61% of businesses have made no preparations at all and that “Britain is fatally ill-prepared” for Brexit
 
19. The business secretary said “Seamless trade is vital for our economy, boosting business, supporting jobs, and ensuring consumers get the best deal”
 
20. He was talking about England and Scotland. He still thinks abandoning seamless trade with the EU is a great idea
 
21. The govt used its majority to vote against protecting the NHS from being sold
 
22. The govt used its majority to vote against protection of agriculture and food standards
 
23. The govt used its majority to vote against parliament having oversight of any trade deals
 
24. And now corruption news, and we’ll start small: Robert Jenrick, who you might remember from previous episodes, was in charge of £25m regeneration scheme
 
25. 60 of the 61 constituencies helped were Tory seats with small majorities, or Tory targets at the general election
 
26. Only 2 towns had Tory majorities over 10,000. One was Jenrick’s own seat
 
27. It was reported the Irish tracing app cost £773,000 and works
 
28. The contract for managing our “world beating” app was given to the wife of a Tory MP, cost £13m in 4 months, it didn’t work
 
29. Even if you paid £50,000 to each programmer for 4 months work, £13m buys 260 programmers
 
30. The successful app used by Germany – which is open source – lists 17 programmers
 
31. Did we hire 260 programmers? If so, why? If not, where is the rest of the money?
 
32. Also, the govt admitted its “world beating app” broke the law
 
33. A leaked govt report found our “world beating” trace system is failing
 
34. Serco traced 59,000 contacts in 6 weeks, which is less than 1 contact per tracer per fortnight. They got £10bn for that
 
35. But the govt claimed it was a success because it managed to find an outbreak in its own call centre
 
36. Russia report news: The govt attempted to suborn parliament by fixing the appointment of Chris Grayling to chair the Intelligence Sub-Committee (ISC)
 
37. It failed, so suspended the MP who did get the job
 
38. The ISC said the reasons given by the govt for delaying the report were “simply not true”
 
39. As the ISC released the report, the govt announced a pay rise for 900,000 workers. Were you distracted? Me neither
 
40. The report confirmed Russian interference in the Scottish Independence referendum
 
41. The report “reveals that no one in government knew if Russia interfered in or sought to influence the [Brexit] referendum, because they did not want to know”
 
42. The ISC demanded an inquiry into Russian interference in Brexit
 
43. The govt immediately said no
 
44. I’m sure this is a coincidence, but this week it was reported the largest political donor in British history is a Russian Socialite who has paid £1.7m to the Tory party
 
45. She paid £160,000 for game of tennis with Boris Johnson
 
46. She paid £30,000 for dinner with Gavin Williamson. I know, it’s baffling
 
47. The company she runs has assets of £23,000 and liabilities of £8.4m, so it’s a mystery where all that donated money is coming from.
 
48. And finally: it was reported that the UK doesn't even have enough palettes to transport goods after we leave the EU, cos we've been relying on theirs until now, and have neither the wood nor the treatment facilities required to build enough of our own.
