'Widespread Voter Fraud'

Captain Qahn's picture

The sanitisation of North Yorkshire, where only the democratic elite have a voice..:

""Everywhere else in the borough has parish councils to look after the most local matters, but Scarborough does not. 

I do not agree with the system of elected mayors, which puts too much power in the hands of one person, and I’m not happy about the prospect of local government becoming less local with the change to large unitary authorities... "

'Model with Enhancements'

"Councils in the area have until September to submit their proposals for what the future unitary authority could look like.

Steve Siddons, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council, said: "We would support that. I would certainly support that and I think that makes far more sense than the complex system that we have in place. The services would still be provided locally. It would bring more money into the local economy, it means that we'll have more control over economic regeneration, transport and over infrastructure."

"Back in December, a major plank of the Conservative party’s general election strategy was to portray Jeremy Corbyn as a Marxist throwback, committed to all sorts of dangerous 1970s lefty ideas such as state ownership and higher public spending.

"In the middle of a British swampland, not far from the Innercity, is a rectangular iron gate. Beyond its rusted bars is a collection of radio towers, abandoned buildings and power lines bordered by a dry-stone wall. This sinister location is the focus of a mystery which stretches back to the height of the Cold War."

'The Quill, Pen and Paper'

"The comments come at a time when Leader of the House in the Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg he does not want to see the so-called “hybrid” arrangements - where some attend in person and some virtually - extended beyond the Whitsun recess, which ends on June 2, thereby requiring MPs to attend in person to take part in proceedings."

The Nanny State

""Our message today is simple: we stood behind Britain's workers and businesses as we came into this crisis, and we will stand behind them as we come through the other side."

There has been growing concern about the cost of the scheme, and last week Mr Sunak said it could not continue in its current form.

However, he was under pressure to announce changes soon to avoid a so-called "cliff edge" in which employers begin mass redundancies...

Here We Are

"I write to question the motives of our local authorities in denying outsiders, visitors and tourists to share our coastline, enjoy our natural environment, beaches, opens spaces and fresh air at possibly the most crucial time in our social recent history." 

They will of course argue that they were protecting ... each other?

"It is as some people have criticised a slow reaction, with the UK being behind other nations in decision-making. Others say the lockdown hasn't gone far enough, as some people are bending the rules.  Robert Goodwill said:"Assuming that these people on social media are not epidemiologists, or professional doctors, or people from the London School of Tropical Medicine or from Imperial College.  We must listen to the best scientific advice.
