The London Mayor Sadiq Khan has written to Home Secretary Sajid Javid, blaming the lack in police funding for the Extinction Rebellion Group (conveniently abbreviated as the ERG) protests, which have caused some disruption in Holy Week. Khan said that there had been £850 million less in the budget for the Metropolitan Police, refusing to take responsibility for the town he is actually Mayor off, instead blaming a lack of funds, like so many Labour politicians before him.

A cowardly tactic, Gerry says…

Corbyn: Brexit talks at risk because of Trump

Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May

Jeremy Corbyn has potentially thrown the Brexit talks with the government into jeopardy by saying that the Tories want to ‘do a deal’ with Donald Trump. He also said the government was ‘dithering’ in its proposals, despite John McDonnell saying that there was ‘more agreement’ between the two sides. Talks continue this week, but there is no expected progress.

Gerry thinks that there might be more hot-cross bun eating than Brexit talking…

Phillip Hammond

The Chancellor Philip Hammond has said that Brexit needs to be taken ‘off the table’, in a bid to remember that some other issues do actually matter. He said that it would give the government ‘bandwidth’ to cover and reform other areas, rejected by the PM in the face of Brexit, such as the ‘burning injustices’ agenda (remember that?).

He is right for once, Gerry says…

Julian Assange arrested in London

Julian Assange

Russian-backing criminal Julian Assange has finally been arrested in the Ecuadorian Embassy, where he has been for the last seven years. The Met Police stated that his arrest was because he had failed to surrender to the court. WikiLeaks have of course said that his arrest is illegal, but Sajid Javid said that ‘no one is above the law.’

He should face justice, Gerry says…
