Conservative Party chairman admits ‘failings’ at 10 Downing Street
The Conservative Party chairman has admitted there were "failings" at 10 Downing Street, claiming that Boris Johnson would seek to "address the underlying culture" that led to the partygate scandal.

But he rejected the idea that it was a resigning matter. Reports claim that the prime minister is preparing a series of major policy documents to win back support - said to be dubbed "operation red meat" - including a plan to freeze the BBC licence fee for two years before getting rid of it altogether.

    If there is reasonable suspicion that the law has been broken then it is the duty of the police to investigate these matters without fear or favour. The police would have full powers not available to sue Gray a civil servant appointed by the government (and its civil servants ) that she is investigating. At an appropriate time the suspects would then b3 arrested and questioned under an official police caution. In many people’s view Sue Gray’s investigation will not have any comeback if she is misled or lied to, as has been the case so far for our already disgraced Prime Minister.

    Given that the Tories are claiming credit for all of their 'hard' work with the vaccine roll-out (accidentally failing to realise that it was the scientists, doctors, nurses and medical professionals that worked round the clock - to this day - on the vaccine roll-out (whilst the tories were partying - allegedly!), there are rumours that the tories are plotting a new venture by rolling out eye tests for every member of the UK population to prove that our eyesight has been deceiving us. Yes, hundreds of sqillions of pounds of tax payers' money will be 'awarded' to newly formed companies under the guise of being opticians, each owned by a tory (so that you can trust it's a legitimate 'transaction'). And when you are handed the result of your eye test - which will tell you that your eyesight has indeed deceived you, you needn't be concerned because the results of your eye test will have been authenticated by Sue Gray. Yes, the new venture is called 'Operation Save Big Dog'.
