That’s because it is, whatever your view of Magic Grandpa (and mine is similar to most posters on here) , it is whataboutery.Fair. And yet when people criticise BoJo over Covid and you ask how much better Corbyn would have done there's an instant accusation of whataboutery.
No it's not. Whataboutery would be if people criticised BoJo over Covid, and people said that his perceived poor performance was justified due to Corbyn's perceived poor performance over antisemitism, or his poor performance in the election campaign. What is being asked is, is BoJo's performance any worse than the performance we would have had from any other person in his place, and specifically from the only other person who could feasibly have been PM at the start of 2020? That's not whataboutery, that's a direct and justifiable comparison of the realistic alternative.That’s because it is, whatever your view of Magic Grandpa (and mine is similar to most posters on here) , it is whataboutery.
Clearly the book on the shelf behind him was not put there on purpose, where it is just happens to be where he thought it belonged after he last put it down.
The immediate problem I see is trying to describe grime as music. What convoluted virtue signalling thought process could come up with awarding a screaming socialist a decoration from something he hates, placing him among those he despises, for something that bears no relation to its description?The bigger shock was finding out he received an MBE in 2018 for ‘services to Grime Music’! Nothing like a hypocritical Socialist rapper eh?
I get the idea that the EHRC was seen as on side for a very long time, and the free rein labour were given as something to which they were entitled. Unfortunately for them, they took the piss and abused that entitlement to have a go at those they saw as enemies of their socialist dreams, resulting in their current woes.
He's a useful idiot, I think his Russian pension is safe

If Len wants to look at it that way, then it isn't Unite's money either, it's the members' money.From the article:
Mr McCluskey, a supporter of Mr Corbyn, has criticised the accompanying payout, telling the Observer: "It's an abuse of members' money. A lot of it is Unite's money and I'm already being asked all kinds of questions by my executive.
Yes but Len is Unite. There's no need for the members to worry themselves over complicated union matters.If Len wants to look at it that way, then it isn't Unite's money either, it's the members' money.
Unite is one of the recognised unions at my work. I refuse to join them because of McCluskey and his cronies, and have had some quite intense discussions with colleagues who are Unite members. I think am slowly opening their eyes as to the exact nature of the leadership of their organisation, but I don't suppose it'll do any good....
If I was paying subs into the Unite coffers I think I might want a refund!
It is very unlikely that JC will have his collar felt but others may be looking over their shoulder wondering if they are going to be the one looking for a chair when the music stops.A criminal inquiry into the leaking of the documents is underway.
A spokesman for the National Crime Agency confirmed it was leading the investigation, but added he could not comment further.
