Just watched what Maitlis said... um... HOW is there ANY problem with it?!?
I really despair - this could be just the thing to take the heat off BoJo and DomCums, right at the point when there needs to be more pressure to hold them to account.
I think it only adds to it really
This. 160k Tweets about Maitlis so far tonight - the BBC have just stoked the fire.
Yeah, Cummings is still the story rather than Pick and Pack or Track'N'Trace or whatever it is.
Newsnight not even addressing it.
Not addressing Cummings? Or not addressing Track'n'Trace?
Perfect time to announce the track and trace system which relies on the public agreeing to the government’s guidance through consent, as they strenuously deny their most powerful advisor completely undermined the government’s own rules, and was supported in doing so by the prime minister and most of his senior cabinet!!!
I’m sure it will be a stellar success!!!
has everyone complained to the BBC about replacing Mailis? I have, I want to see if they acknowledge it the way they did when Cumtits mobilised his army of inevitably sunburnt flag-shaggers to write in to express their dismay at hearing such hurty words about him.
Hopefully JK Rowling ignores the fact Emily once used a unisex toilet and offers to pay her salary for a year.
SEXIST TRASH CUNT
Emily is a TERF herself isn't she?
Kawczynski is a well known arsehole is he not?
Opposed to human rights, social welfare, women's reproductive rights etc. Pro-Saudi Arabia.
She's peddling the whole WOULD SOMEONE THINK OF THE LITTLE GIRLS like TRANS WOMEN are FIRST AND FOREMOST MEN IN WIGS who want to FUCK LITTLE GIRLS terf myth.
Not a hot look, particularly when she appears to be CHALLENGING a frankly sensible opinion from an ACTUAL DOCTOR.
Perhaps such an act needs to be better written, I think is her point.
Although TERFs are terrible people and I support trans women using women's toilet/ changing areas, I'm not sure her point is transphobic. It's about looking at a bad law that COULD be manipulated by predatory cis males if not written properly.
However should she might by TERF CUNT.
Such fears sound reasonable until you actually properly think about it. As one of the replies says there: "If a predatory man wants to gain access to women they can already do it really easily without dressing up and pretending they are a woman. This is a strawman argument favoured by TERFs and shame on you for perpetuating it."
As you say though she might not be a TERF herself, just ignorant.
I mean this is a whole separate thread and I don't really think she is necessarily trying to BURN THE TRANS but the tone of the tweet, quoting Newsnight's tweet which is rightly giving the point of view of the interviewee, to DOUBLE DOWN on her point makes her look like she is more concerned about those FABLED MALE CIS RAPISTS who DRESS UP AS WOMEN to trick little girls in toilets rather than the rights of trans women. I don't know if she realised it when she did it, but she is totally PEDDLING the TERF MYTH (because it is a myth).
Oh I totally get it. I just read it as a risk of bad law. But it's late, I don't want it to be true and I certainly don't want to be misunderstood on the issue.
That UTTERLY VILE video of Matt Hancock laughing in an interview was a terrible way to start my day
Hancock was also on This Morning complimenting his own hair.
How can you compliment THAT?
Is he going MAD?
Probably trying to WIN THE PEOPLE over with his TOP CLASS BANTS
This now now pretty much off the front pages except from The Mirror and Guardian - https://www.theguardian.com/politic...-papers-say-about-the-dominic-cummings-crisis
Durham police have confirmed old Dom DID break lockdown rules. Which are law.
And I OOP!
Surely, SURELY, this means he HAS to go. He won't
Also tweet for confirmation:
I imagine that's the last we'll be seeing of Boris in public until the next PMQs.
Is it too soon to celebrate? I just know BOZO will come out in his defence and there'll be some LOOPHOLE somewhere or the other...
I thought this was a tweet from a few days ago not their official response! So Boris is saying the police are wrong? This really is getting PREPOSTEROUS!
BBC have gone in with a double notification.
Given that we're on the SIXTH day of this and still getting revelations, I'd say the matter is very much not closed
Big thanks to the BBC for stoking the fire last night
So even with the official, transparently bullshit version of events, Cummings was still found to have broken lockdown rules, and Johnson is proven to have lied on national television.
The best part is we all KNOW his little fairytale was absolute nonsense, so the Durham statement means they'd have considered the actual events an even bigger breach.
The Tories are fucked. Absolutely fucked. *Johnson wins another five years in 2024*
