Its the word axe made it look more shocking and hardcore, now if they said "look into" "change" or "modernise" it wouldnt look so dramatic

Johnson threatened Channel 4 with not having their charter renewed after he refused to appear on their leader's debate, CH4 then put a block of ice in his place.

Johnson is peeved that it was a local BBC reporter that challenged him with the picture of the child with suspected pneumonia lying on a hospital floor for hours. It's what Lynton Crosby called 'the dead cat strategy'. as a way of distracting attention away from bad news onto something else.

However this time, Laura Kuennsberg was exposed for spreading fake news. Twitter and even the mainstream press and broadcast media have gone nuts on this. Very embarrassing for Laura K and the BBC, as well as the 'senior Tories' who claimed that a Labour supporter punched one of Matt Hancock's aides outside a hospital when he did no such thing..

No, he didn't.  Some journo realised that Channel 4's charter was up for renewal, worked out that this would be in the next parliament, and that if Boris wins it would happen while he was leader.  Put two and two together and they made the story "Boris to axe C4"

It's not just a story made up by some journalist. Even the Torygraph reported Boris threatening Ch4:

Boris Johnson has threatened a major shake-up of Channel 4 after the Conservatives accused the broadcaster of “conspiring with Jeremy Corbyn” to shut them out of a televised debate.



The Tories made a formal complaint to Ofcom on Thursday night alleging Channel 4 breached the Broadcasting Code by  refusing to allow Michael Gove to take part...

I agree.

This appears to be an off the record briefing from Conservative HQ.

No-one is creditied with the words in any of the reports I've just checked.

 

This leaves Alchresearch  able to maintain it is all a put up job.

However,

1. How likley is the Telegraph to print a derogatory allegation if the source is questionable?

2. Are the Telegraph likely to have a good connection to Conservative HQ?

Has Dominic Cummings' fingerprints / MO all over it - no surprise there.

Tories are fielding Hannah Westropp as thier candidate in my constituency of Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, she doesn't live in Sheffield and rides the Belvoir Hunt, which says everything I need to know, not to vote for her.

 

keep this real beast out of Parliament, and those like her.

 

anyone who is intending to vote for her, please think twice,.

I think they just put a token person in because they have to.

Labour are odds 1/200 to win this seat. So my vote as useless as always.

In fact looking at the odds page (wish I hadn't now)

 

but posted anyway as it's absolutely nailed my apathy (and avoidance) of this election, and voting in general.

 

https://www.oddschecker.com/politics/british-politics

 

These main bets are just regular odds that you expect, but if you starting clicking there are odds for everything!

 

Look how safe these seats are!

 

I could put £200 on Labour winning my seat (Hills&Br), and win £201.

Sheff Central - bet365 have at 1/300 ! (all the rest are same as above 1/200)

 

Hallam: LibDem 1/3 Labour 9/4 and Tory 18/1

 

Can any one here, see why my vote is useless?
