Boris Johnson’s unlawful conduct has been called to account

  Boris Johnson’s unlawful conduct has been called to account The ruling by the UK Supreme Court is a devastating indictment of the abuse of power by a prime minister — and of the holder of that office, Boris Johnson. The ruling by the UK Supreme Court is a devastating indictment of the abuse of power by a prime minister — and of the holder of that office, Boris Johnson. The 11 judges unanimously concluded that Mr Johnson’s five-week suspension of parliament was an unlawful attempt to silence MPs, at the very moment the UK, through Brexit, faces the biggest shake-up in its constitutional status for decades. Mr Johnson’s claim that the suspension was a routine break before a new legislative session stands exposed.

Families of those killed in the Grenfell fire fear a report into what happened will be 'buried in Brexit' as it is due to be published a day before Britain is due to leaving the European Union. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson set October 30 as the deadline for publishing the initial findings on the west London fire in a letter to inquiry chairman Sir Martin Moore-Bick.

No-deal Brexit will be Britain's fault, says EU chief

  No-deal Brexit will be Britain's fault, says EU chief Failure to reach a Brexit deal would be the sole responsibility of the UK, the president of the European Commission has said. Jean-Claude Juncker insisted he and the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier were doing all they could to secure an agreement because it would be a catastrophe for both Britain and Europe if there was no divorce settlement in place.He also warned that negotiating a future trade deal would not be easy in the event of a no-deal.

It is expected to provide some idea on how the fire started, how it spread, the emergency services reaction and the recommendations.

But Grenfell United's chairman Natasha Elcock has written to Sir Martin that the recommendations will 'not receive the attention (they) deserve' if published a day before Brexit day.

Boris Johnson’s Ultimate Deceit

  Boris Johnson’s Ultimate Deceit It is one of the ironies of the rise of authoritarian movements in Western democracies that politicians who claim to be strengthening the foundations of democracy work so assiduously to undermine those foundations. 

The family lived roughly halfway up the tower block and were reported missing by Catherine Lindsay, an adult language tutor who was teaching Police have today confirmed that a missing family of five who were thought to have died in the Grenfell Tower fire which killed at least 79 people are alive

It ' s a particularly painful time to mark the date , as communities affected by the fire are unable to get together and mourn the 72 people who lost their lives. Some relatives of the dead also say that racism played a role in the tragedy and continues to be a factor in their recovery, and are asking why the

Survivors and families have described the date as 'deeply frustrating' and having caused 'upset' in the community.   

Elcock has urged Sir Martin to find a new publication date as it is due to coincide with the 'most significant constitutional moment for our country in living memory'.

Bereaved families and survivors have not been consulted, according to Elcock.   

'This is not the first time we have had to question whether bereaved families and survivors are really at the heart of this inquiry.'

Can the World’s Oldest Party Survive Brexit?

  Can the World’s Oldest Party Survive Brexit? Britain’s Conservative Party has endured for hundreds of years, but in trying to pull the country out of the EU, it will have to adapt to survive.And yet the Tories have survived at each turn, their genius lying not in an ability to conserve, but in an ability to adapt—reluctantly accepting reform and, over time, embracing the ancient, eternal nobility of the new settlement as if it had always been there.

She insisted that it is 'not too late' to change the date which will ensure organisations and institutions 'will be held to account and feel pressure to make changes'.   

Inquest, a charity campaigning for justice on behalf of the bereaved, is calling for the papers to be published 'as soon as possible' to enable the 'necessary parliamentary scrutiny, debate and the need for possible urgent legislation', according to Executive Deborah Coles. 

In a letter to Sir Martin on October 3, Mr Johnson said: 'I invite you to publish the Phase 1 report without delay. I would be grateful if you could publish as soon as you are able to, and no later than 30 October 2019.'

The inquiry chairman said he would make a copy of his findings available to the families and survivors at least 36 hours before it is made public.

He believes it is 'very important' that those affected have the opportunity to read and absorb the findings before they are made public, according to an inquiry spokesman.

There was an outcry from groups representing survivors and families on June 14 in 2017 after it was revealed publication would be postponed by nearly six months because the investigation had become 'far more complex' than initially anticipated.  

Ms Elcock branded the initial delay, which was revealed in a letter from the inquiry's solicitor Caroline Featherstone, 'disgraceful' at the time. 

Ms Featherstone said the Phase 1 report would explain 'how it spread' with an almost 'minute-by-minute description' of what was happening on each floor.  

A detailed description of the incident control room and what happened on the ground will be involved.

The second stage will focus on establishing how Grenfell Tower came to be in a condition that allowed a tragedy on such a scale to occur.

Hearings for Phase 2 are expected to start in January. 


Are Anonymous No.10 Brexit Briefings ‘Revealing Splits In Boris Johnson’s Team’? .
It’s been another huge political week. The Brexit negotiations nearly collapsed, a delegation of scores of Tories demanded reassurances from their leader and the Queen was dragged into politics again in recent days. Much of the damage has been done after anonymous “Number 10 source” briefings, some or all of which are thought to have emanated from Boris Johnson’s controversial chief of staff, Dominic Cummings.
