Strange Case of Rachel Johnson’s Invisible Tennis Partner

Our cartoon this morning is based on the Sunday Mirror’s cracking story Boris Johnson’s sister Rachel flouts lockdown to stay at second home and play tennis“. The story features pictures of her in tennis gear on Saturday morning, miles from her Somerset home where her husband and child are self-isolating. She says that she has her LBC show to do on a Friday and that is why she stayed overnight at her Notting Hill home. Unexplained is why she, unlike other LBC presenters, can’t do the show down the line from home…

Also unexplained is why she had to play tennis the following morning, or as the Sunday Mirror puts it

“Rachel has certainly played the advantage, hob-nobbing with pals yesterday and enjoying the sunshine despite her brother’s guidelines putting second homes well beyond reach during lockdown – as well as banning movement between two households.”

Pictured coming out of her house in his tennis gear is John Witherow, the editor of The Times. It appears the Sunday Mirror did not recognise him because they caption him only as “A man leaves Rachel’s property after giving her a lift home from a tennis club”. They will be kicking themselves for missing that surely…

The story was followed up this morning by MailOnline, with a handy map showing the 185-mile journey from Rachel’s home. This time there is no picture or even mention of her game with a tennis partner. Nothing in the Daily Express or the Metro about the rival paper’s editor in their coverage either. The Guardian appears to have missed the story entirely. Can’t see any mention of the story in The Times…

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes? 
Continuiosly using the NHS as a stick to beat the opposition or a classic party political paper dragon! (Paper Dragon): a politician or political party whocampaign to fox the proble…

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
