Throwback: Last Week’s Glasgow “All Cops Are Bastards” Protest

Six days ago, amid the Black Lives Matter protests, Glasgow leftists were marching down the streets chanting “ACAB: All Cops Are Bastards”. While their free speech was being enforced by the police of course…

Today, a Glasgow police officer has been stabbed and seriously injured in the same area, trying to save scots from a crazed knife attacker who has murdered three and now lies dead. Guido wonders whether last week’s protesters will have any pause for thought after today’s events…

Rishi’s Awkward ‘We’re All In This Together’ Moment’

Rishi Sunak is riding high in the polls, but will his ‘you will not be forgotten’ promise come back to haunt him a la George Osborne’s ‘we’re all in this together’?

2 million small businesses have been forgotten. As owner/directors of limited companies they didn’t get any income support at all, because they pay themselves via dividends. Most didn’t qualify for grants.

Dividends count as ‘income’ when you’re getting a mortgage, but not if you want financial help during a pandemic. Go figure.

Whitehall bureaucrats claim it’s all ‘too difficult’ to fix, forcing these businesses into debt via ‘Bounce Back Loans’.

While big corporates have availed themselves of the full range of taxpayer support, the smallest businesses have been left with virtually nothing. Not a great look for the ‘People’s Party’.

With Tory MPs clamouring for a stimulus package, there is a simple fix: abolish the debt and turn Bounce Back Loans into grants for forgotten businesses.

Nandy Calls for Tougher Approach to China

Speaking in an Adam Smith Institute webinar this afternoon, Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy took a perhaps surprisingly strident stance against the increasingly aggressive Chinese government. Not only did she support the Government’s offer to Hong Kong’s British National (Overseas) citizens, Nandy pushed for further action. Particularly focussing fire on British companies appeasing the Chinese Communist Party…

“We need to be far tougher with British companies, particularly the British banks HSBC and Standard Chartered that have capitulated to Chinese pressure”

Nandy went on to talk up the power of Britain, striking a surprisingly Boris-like tone of optimism in terms of what can be done. A welcome change in Labour Party policy – standing up to, rather than cosying up to despotic regimes. Good on her.

First Glimpse of Boris’s New Union Jack-Branded Jet

Last week news emerged that Boris is spending £900,000 of taxpayers cash to spruce of the official Government jet, so as to “promote Britain after Brexit”. The decision raised many eyebrows, even splitting opinion in the Guido Newsroom

Guido brings you some first-glimpse footage of the pricey paint job from one Cambridge-local plane enthusiast, who is confident he has caught sight of the spruced-up jet tail through the hangar doors. Austin Powers would be proud…
