    As opposed to being suppressed until it was a better time to use the story? People clearly knew about all these #10 events, seemingly hundreds of people knew about them.

Civil servants are known to be fanatical remainers, almost to a man and woman!
    Well they may get Truss - whose voice has got deeper since 2018 - or Sunak who have loyalty to themselves.

    "Boris Johnson is doomed, but Rishi Sunak might not be the saviour the Tories crave

    Downing Street’s May 2020 bring-your-own-booze party has reignited the despair about Boris Johnson’s leadership that the remaining Conservative optimists hoped might disappear over the winter break. Now, though, the blaze has revived with a vengeance. Johnson’s apology to the Commons does not solve this in any way.

    The apology merely confirms what was already clear: an astonishingly insensitive breach was committed at the height of the first lockdown. This dereliction did not just feature Johnson as a participant: it was marked by his very character. His apology, with its continued pretence about a work event within the regulations, lacks either moral worth or political credibility.

    Conservative MPs are well aware their leader is a dodgy chancer. Some of them actively admire this. Others are happy to profit from it. Many loathe it while quietly despising themselves for permitting it. But the style works only while it succeeds. Most Tories had put Johnson on probation after his spectacularly disastrous December. The fresh explosion this week means they are now looking more urgently than before at the alternatives."

    Pretty pathetic that the worst thing BoJo supposedly had done was to have that party

    She is the secret off the books owner of Gasprom, that's how.

    Plus the girl is too smart for her age - must be a witch.

    Ah, so the argument is "it's the fault of the party with links to the people who went on strike because they were being given pay cuts."

    And yes, the Wail report is interesting in the bits it leaves out - the 1972 strike came to an end when the government agreed not to give them a pay cut but a pay rise. Then the same government failed to deliver to that agreement, so the miners went on strike for more.

    Now, please explain how Greta is responsible for our current energy crisis? Are you sure it's not due to the government failing to invest in securing the country's energy requirements, then borrowing off China to get France to build power plants for us? Makes you proud to be British when a Swedish teenager and the Russian president have brought a country to its knees having suffered austerity (that did not impact millionaires/billionaires) for the last decade.

    Are you sure all the UK's issues aren't the fault of some other foreigners as well?
    Not according to the Slaver

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2003/...past.politics1

    On the afternoon of the "battle of Saltley Gates" Heath ordered that a court of inquiry should be set up under Lord Wilberforce to look into the miners' grievances. He was to give the miners nearly everything they wanted, including a 27% pay rise.
    But the papers do show that when, the next day, the NUM rejected the Wilberforce inquiry recommendations and demanded a further £1 a week, Mr Heath was prepared to call in the troops and the citizen drivers. "To fight and lose would be bad enough; not to fight at all would be worse," he told the cabinet.

    The prime minister himself took personal charge of the negotiations. He stood firm over the extra £1 a week but an extra £10m package of fringe benefits sealed the total victory for the miners.

    No its the fault of the NUM who fund labour you can't have Tory sleaze without Labour sleaze.

    Greta was a bit of a joke, so I expected you to go straight to Xenophobia. Though moves to green energy have driven a lot of the crisis.

    Yes previous governments like with NUM have failed to tackle the issues.

    "Caused" by Greta is a bit rich, and Putin is only taking advantage of a situation that already exists. Like it or not, we need to "go green", but of course this needs to be managed properly and no recent government has done that. Large scale nuclear (started 15 years ago) would have been one way, plus proper incentives to insulate homes - which on its own would mitigate much of the present crisis. Germany's reaction to the Japan disaster obviously didn't help either, shutting down all of their nuclear capability and becoming reliant on Putin's gas.
