"The Conservative Party has written to broadcasting regulator Ofcom accusing Channel 4 of breaking its codes by depriving the Tories of any representation at the debate.

The party calls the "empty chairing" of Mr Johnson - and his replacement with an ice sculpture - a "provocative partisan stunt, which would itself constitute making a political opinion in its own right," something the Tory letter argues is against the broadcasting code.

"It is clear that denying the Conservative Party any opportunity to contribute to this cross-party event is unfair and breaches the requirements to 'preserve' impartiality and does not offer an 'appropriately wide range of significant views' to the public," the letter adds.

I think if it were Jeremy Corbyn who threatened not to renew the broadcasting licence of Channel 4 news because he didn't want to do a leader's debate, people in the press (and on here I'm sure) would be making comparisons with communist Russia or China, at the very least they would be calling him a coward. Yet I'm pretty sure that the press tomorrow would not give it the same prominence had it been Corbyn.

Just imagine the headlines

Is Boris a role model for the country?

 

A self confessed liar, cheat, a sexist and racist and he wants us to trust him - why?

 

Does he really think that be cause he plays the buffoon, he isn't a buffoon?

 

I wouldn't vote for a cheat, liar, racist and sexist person - would you?

So Labour have upped the tree planting anti by the political parties  by 'claiming' they would plant TWO BILLION trees in England, (note only England) by 2040 if they win the general election. 

 

My first thought is why do politicians need to win elections in order to plant trees?  As Friends of the Earth point out, this is 270,000 trees per day, every day? 

 

My second thought is, was it Diane Abbott who has come up with the 2 billion trees figure & not thought it through again? 

A quick fact check should put your mind at rest.

Nice dig at Abbott, by the way. Maybe you could tell us what you graduated in from Cambridge.

Corbyn doesn't really help himself, does he?

Although even I would question a clip from 2011 being dragged up now but then again, if the Parties are going to use such evidence as previous Twitter & Facebook comments.....?
