I am a freelance writer currently writing for Blasting News and HubPages. I mainly write about politics. But have and will cover all subjects when the need arises.
Tobias Ellwood: Praising The Taliban?
A senior Conservative MP faces being ousted from a Commons Select Committee. Four members of the select committee will vote to oust the MP for his comments. These MPs are Conservative MPs Mark Francois and Richard Twigg, and Labour MPs Kevan Jones and Derek Twigg.
Sunak: Dire Polling.
Rishi Sunak promised to be whiter than white, open and transparent when he succeeded Boris. Sunak was once the rising star of the Conservative Party. He stood as leader and lost to Liz Truss. People thought that's it, game over for Wishy-Washy Rishi. However, because of a gross error in the economy made by Truss and her Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng, there followed yet another leadership contest. Boris considered entering it but didn't. Penny Mordaunt pulled out (and later became a minister in Sunak's cabinet) and Wishy-Washy Rishi's career was resurrected. As Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.
Ben Wallace: May Step Down.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace is the longest-serving person in this post. Mr. Wallace, an MP. for the North-West of England, is considering resigning. It is nothing to do, so sources say, with any friction with Rishi Sunak. But it may be to do with a proposed reshuffle of the cabinet.
'Stop The Boats' Policy is Sinking.
Boats have been crossing the English Channel for some time now. Year after year people take to dinghies paying criminals exorbitant prices for this. To take to craft, never designed, to carry hordes of people. Some sadly, capsize, in the English Channel. Often, with loss of life, while others do make it ashore. Most are picked up by Royal Navy or Coast Guard and RNLI craft and ferried to shore. They are held in detention centres, hotels, etc. What happens then is dependent on circumstances. One thing is clear, though, the UK has to be compassionate, but many people coming here illegally is putting a strain on our already shaky services.
George Osborne's Orange Confetti.
A 'Just Stop Oil' supporter threw orange confetti over George Osborne and his Bride. The couple had got married at St Mary's Church, in Bruton. As the couple, was walking across the church grounds, a grey-haired lady emerged. She threw orange confetti over a rather, surprised, George Osborne and Mrs. Osborne.
Labour 20 Points Ahead.
If Sky News 'Poll of Polls' is accurate, Sir Keir has much to celebrate. His Labour Party has widened the vast canyon between them and the Conservatives. The Labour Party now has a 20% lead over the government. Since Boris stepped down as leader, along with the Liz Truss fiasco, when Sunak came to power, the Tories have been in the doldrums.
Mhairi Black: Standing Down At General Election.
SNP Deputy Leader at Westminister, Mhairi Black, is stepping down at the next general election. After only 6 months on the job, Ms. Black has apparently had enough of being the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South.
Australia Extends Visa.
Australia was discovered by Captain Cook in the 18th Century. After that, poor old Captain Cook was murdered by Native Hawaiians. Australia became a land for shipping British prisoners. Penal colonies run by the British Empire became the norm. No doubt, Native Australians looked on with curiosity as white-skinned men and women poured ashore. Later, many prisoners both men and women gained their freedom and settled the land. Their children were the first European Australians. And so, the process began, of Australia becoming a nation. Gaining its independence from the UK in the early 20th Century.
Sue Gray Will Become Sir Keir's Chief of Staff.
Sue Gray has been confirmed, finally, as Sir Keir's Chief of Staff. Sue Gray, was, formerly the civil servant, who chaired the 'Party Gate' investigation. The investigation found people like Boris Johnson, Rishi Sunak, and others had broken 'lockdown' rules. Subsequently, fines were issued to Messrs. Johnson, Sunak, etc.
Lisa Nandy: Bothered by All White Male List.
Labour has selected candidates for upcoming by-elections. David Beale is contesting Boris' seat in Uxbridge, Alistair Strathern is contesting Nadine Dorries' seat (though she has yet to resign), Neil Guild is doing the same in Somerton and Frome, and Michael Shanks for Rutherglen and Hamilton West.
