  • Weekly Round-Up 22 July 2022
    Two weeks ago, Conservative Party MPs voted to oust Boris Johnson saying he couldn’t be trusted to be our Prime Minister anymore. On Monday night, at about 10pm, 342 of them voted to have confidence in the Prime Minister and his government. Yes, you read that right.

  • Weekly round-up
    Well, they do say a week is a long time in politics and this week has certainly been indicative of that! The record number of resignations from this Government finally prompted the Prime Minister to resign on Thursday. I won’t say he did the right thing, because the right thing to have done would have been resign a long time ago. It is not simply his disgraceful behaviour in appointing someone to a power of position who had already demonstrated […]
