Scrape that barrel - it's Gavin running the news conference

Sunday 19th April, the No.10 daily news conference.

Who shall we get to host it ?

Boris ? - nope, still recovering at his second home.

Michael Gove ? - nope, looks like a startled rabbit.

Dominic Raab ? - nope, raabit in the headlights.

Pritti Patel ? - nope, absolutely all rabbit and no answers (and can't do numbers)

Rishi Sunak ? -  nope, he's really good, but after Boris's job so we need to keep him out of the limelight.

Ahh, here we go, Gavin Williamson. The obvious choice ? What could go wrong ?

Gaffe prone Williamson was sacked by Theresa May from his previous role of  Defence Secretary where he'd earned the nickname "Private Pike" (stupid boy !) and attracted ridicule from many quarters for his “frankly, Russia should go away, and it should shut up.” comment following the Salisbury poisonings.

So here he is then.....

Bad choice, he's doing a bad impression of a paternal clergyman having a fireside* chat with some bewildered parishioners.

* wanna buy a fireplace ?

More than 50,000 additional deaths and Stanley is flogging a book !! Outrageous

On Sky News this morning we had: Stanley Johnson re-launching his book "The Virus". As the body count mounts (now one of the highest in the world) at the incompetent hands of a government led by his hopeless son Boris, Stanley is now trying to make a few quid out of his book. "It's got a new cover" he chortled. All proceeds to the the NHS ? What do you think ?

Priti is back - "I am leading..." just when we thought things couldn't get any worse !

Back in February Priti Patel, Home Secretary (aaarrgghh !!), repeatedly vowed to tackle "counter-terrorism offenders" following a shocking knife attack in Streatham.  Since then her profile has been very low, I'm glad to say.  Until yesterday that is.... According to the Daily Mail website, 9/4/2020: Ms Patel, who has not been seen or heard in public since March 23, said in an unexpected radio interview this evening that police must not act in a 'heavy-handed' manner during the coronavirus  lockdown.  This on the same day that  Downing Street said Britain was at a 'critical juncture' in the battle to curb the spread of the disease and with good weather forecast for the long weekend. According to the Daily Mail, in the same article,  she also stated  "  .... w hat I would say is that I speak to the police every day, in fact I am leading operational calls every single day with our blue light family" Really ? Leading operational calls
