BRING OUT THE BALLS! Dan Wooton Leads Calls To END Football’s Biggest Taboo

DAN Wooton from The Sun has taken up the fight to make it easier for gay footballers to be able to come out in the Premier League. Wooton, who is gay himselfm made a powerful statement that should send ripples across the Football league. He said: “If Ireland can have a gay PM, surely the time has come for top football stars to come out.” and he’s right. Wooton revealed: “At least seven professional footballers – two Premier League stars among them – are trapped in the metaphorical closet because they are too terrified to come out as gay.”Dan Wooton Gay footballers face a life of misery. They have to lead double lives, often faking ‘happy families’ to keep up a PR image, whilst dating their preferred sex in private. There has only been one footballer to come out as gay in the Premier Leagues history. Justin Fashanu came out on 22 October 1990 in a massive Sun scoop titled: “£1m Football Star: I AM GAY”. Sadly, Justin committed suicide in 1998, many believe this was due to the lack of su…

Shadow Cabinet Minister Says Boris is Unfairly Getting Blame for Coronavirus Failures

Labour’s Shadow Scottish Secretary Ian Murray used a Zoom call last week to complain about unfair attacks on Boris Johnson’s handling of Brexit; arguing Scotland’s failings are comparatively worse than England’s failings, yet the media continues to lavish praise on Nicola Sturgeon’s handling of the pandemic. Awkward truths he didn’t repeat on Question Time last night…During the Zoom call with a local London Labour branch, Murray also:Complained “Boris gets the blame and not Nicola Sturgeon”.Says the handling of Coronavirus in Scotland is “worse than what’s happening in England”Suggested Sturgeon has unfairly blamed Boris for her own failures; mocking her approach as “look at me, I’m the strong leader, I’m making all these wonderful decisions on behalf of Scotland, and we’re doing much better than the English, but no responsibility for everything, it’s all Boris’s fault”Singled out Robert Peston and Kay Burley’s “absolutely deplorable” praise of Sturgeon’s handling of CoronavirusClaime…

Bias Analysed: 96.8%* of Maitlis Tweets Anti-Boris

Following the embarrassing apology the BBC eventually gave over the partisan and inaccurate opening monologue to Wednesday’s Newsnight, Guido decided to dig deeper into the institutional problem with the BBC’s flagship show. Trawling through the last 100 tweets and retweets of top presenter Emily Maitlis, Guido found just one that could arguably be positive about Boris (a retweet of New Statesman journalist Stephen Bush criticising Labour’s education policy), whereas 31 criticises the PM. Meaning 96.8% of tweets which were not neutral were anti-Boris.  Many of those classed as “neutral” included editorialised criticism of Donald Trump… Guido’s research did not pick up a single retweet of a centre-right commentator, although there were many retweets of commentators and journalists from left-wing newspapers, as well as left-wing campaign accounts, from Joe Politics to the UK Labour Party. This is before getting started on former Labour activist Lewis Goodall…It’s now being reported the …

Lobby Try Politicising Civil Servants, End Up Looking Silly

Another daily briefing, another attempt by the Lobby’s titans last night to keep the flame of the Cummings saga alive. At the Downing Street briefing they tried to drag boffins Sir Patrick Vallance and Chris Whitty into the row by asking them questions about Dominic Cummings. Boris demurred from allowing such questions. Outraged tweets garnered tens of thousands of shares…Following the third attempt by Sam Coates – after Kuenssberg and Peston had a go – the boffins gave the Lobby’s finest a basic schooling in Civil Service conventions. Truth twisting tweets that there was a gagging order from Boris were soon shown to be hollow claims, it was just the conventional reluctance by Civil Servants to get drawn into politics. The boffins themselves made clear they had no desire to get dragged into the Lobby’s games. Be in no doubt that if they had commented in a less than hostile manner to Cummings, these same Lobby titans would be outraged at “Boris politicising Civil Servants”. The perils …
