    Your betters will certainly be giving you a pat on the back after all your efforts to obfuscate from their crimes.

    You have a really weird way of reading things.

    I said if they've done anything wrong I hope they get caught and punished for it. There seems to be enough investigations going on that they'll get to the bottom of it eventually.

    It's in a thread about the cost of living though and it's clearly not even a minimal cause of the covid/energy crisis black hole in the finances.

    Ridiculously stupid and naive to accept such funding from a Chinese source. Even if he didn't know she was a spy he ought to have been suspicious as to why she would make such donations. Although, of course, our government seems perfectly happy for the Chinese to build our power stations and have massive stakes in other essential industries with no concern as to our strategic interests.

    However, still not quite the same thing as being the Chancellor of the Exchequer - the minister who decides on taxes and leads policy on tax avoidance - at the same time as being fined millions for non payment of taxes, then lying when found out and threatening legal action to try to cover it up.

    I actually agree with you @Offcomedun@Offcomedun

    The chancellor simply has to be clean as a whistle when it comes to his or her own personal finances or public trust is instantly diminished and their position in parliament is untenable.

    He has to resign IMO.

    The Nadhim Zahawi story is doing untold damage to the Tory party at the moment.

    They look like they have learnt nothing from the Sue Gray affair where they kicked the can down the road.

    Nadhim Zahawi is the chairman of the Tory party, he is supposed to be the mouth piece for it and he simply can't do that job because he can't appear on TV. Whenever anyone else appears on TV they are bombarded with questions they can't answer.

    It makes Sunak look weak, and it also makes him look stupid because it was less than a week ago he stood up in PMQs saying that Zahawi has been clear to seeing him launch an investigation into him by the following Monday.

    At the absolute minimum Zahawi should step down till after the investigation as these are serious allegations. I mean being incharge of the organisation who is investigating you and settling a dispute whilst being in charge of that organisation is not a good look.

    Still is any of this a surprise following Boris who moved the bar so low Zahawi probably thinks there is nothing wrong.

    This is a good point and shows why parties are reluctant to call each other out on the moral high ground. Don't get me wrong, this Tory party have scaled levels of incompetence and corruption not seen before. But lets not kid ourselves, they all piss in the same pot, i mean, just look at the personal fortune of our most 'successful' prime minister of modern times, the war criminal Tony Blair. Didn't earn that by meeting his constituents in Sedgefield did he now? Lets just face it, the world is corrupt.

    Fantastic news about BP’s profits. It’ll be good when it starts trickling down.

    Some folk don't realise that the treasury and the pension funds benefit from these profits, makes the world go round ....
    Not always good news though but don't tell the envious lefties ..

    Have BP ever made a loss?


    Looney told the Guardian: “When oil prices are high, we make more money and we make no secret of that. But it is literally just 12 months ago that BP recorded the largest loss we've made in our history.8 Feb 2022
