Boris Johnson

The Tory leadership contender Boris Johnson has argued that the party will be facing ‘possible extinction’ if they do not get Brexit over the line. Speaking at a leadership hustings, the former Foreign Secretary and Mayor of London said that his party would ‘not be forgiven’ for failing to deliver on the referendum result.

Esther McVey, who has condemned parents protesting outside schools.

The mad-hat Tory leadership candidate Esther McVey has said that parents should have the ‘final say’ over whether their children are educated about LGBT issues at school. Fellow Conservative MP Justine Greening said that you cannot ‘pick and choose on human rights and equality’, but McVey will not be deterred by the opportunity to adhere to the prejudices of the well-known reactionaries that make up the Tory Party leadership.

Silly woman, Gerry says…
