A Tory Said What: January 2021

A new year is underway and while I initially aimed for this month to be the first one back for the ‘A Tory Said What’ series of posts, it is the second since I decided to start doing these posts again.

These posts were originally halted as it was immensely difficult to keep up with the number of lies, misinformation that was spread, especially after the rise of Boris Johnson to Prime Minister [Pictured in the feature image above from Manchester Evening News]. However, I then remember this quote from Joe Biden’s inspirational inauguration speech on January 20th and it reminds me why the amount of lies, misinformation and gaslighting from the Government infuriates me so much, especially while we are stick with ‘Britain Trump’ for the foreseeable… read more

A Tory Said what? June 2019

I am back with a new instalment of Tory bashing and with a new title, ‘A Tory Said What’ after a good few months away from doing this. It was a title I was going to use for the February and March posts before I missed them and this dragged on into April and May. That means I missed some mighty clangers from Conservative politicians. What did I miss?

I missed Jacob Rees Mogg seemingly defending the use of Concentration Camps during the Second Boer War; the Prime Minister telling children to go back to school as they went on strike over climate change as well as Jeremy Hunt forgetting his history in Slovakia. That was just February. March saw more embarrassment for the government as Theresa May offered herself up as the sacrificial lamb only for enough of her MPs to vote down the Withdrawl Agreement again in Meaningful Vote Three. Then, in came the vultures prying around her job which continued through April and have not yet stopped as she eventually announced her resignation at the end of May. read more

*Comments you Probably would not have expected a Government/Tory MP to say: November 2018

This is new territory for me on this blog. It was prompted by some of the hypocrisy I saw in some of the comments coming from a number of Conservative MP’s in the aftermath of the Draft Brexit Agreement being announced and made public. Some of them I thought were totally mind-boggling, I really did. So, I thought I might start doing a monthly post picking out some of the more extraordinary comments uttered by an MP in government.

*The title of these posts is a working progress and is open to change. Please drop me a message on facebook, twitter or comment on this post if you have any suggestions for a more appropriate title. Additionally, each image along with the quotation comes from the individual’s bio page on the Parliament website. read more
