Once agreed with Scouse and a LibDem at same time
- Dec 22, 2003
From what we know at this point, Boris stopped work for 10 minutes so his wife and a couple of others could bring him some birthday cake - which was actually reported by The Times at the time to general shrugging - Starmer had a few beers and and curry after campaigning. Neither seem particularly offensive to me I will be honest - it's more the rules that were bullshit, which is where the conversation should really be imo.The whole thing is a non-story, he was there for a while and ate on the job. I ordered Pizzas several times during lockdown for our warehouse chaps, I won't be rushing off to po-po to report them for eating it.
This isn't in the same sport, let alone league as Boris on the cheese and wine.
But Labour have turned it around beautifully, how many Tory MPs are going to push it now?
However a large section of the press still haven't got over 2016 so are gunning for Boris, and Starmer has spent the last 2 months on his high horse only to find he was just as bad, so we are where are.
Refund anyone's fines who were caught in rules breaches, get the politicians to pay theirs and move on - we've got a few bigger issues at the moment than beers and cake.
