Arn:
I wonder if there is a race on by Boris Johnson to see how far he can go before people think he's even more of a bell-end than Donald Trump

Why hasn't the report been released?

It's sort of the natural result of the conservatives being purged along Brexit lines, sadly. There is no reason to be in that party other than allegiance to Johnson so now that he's up to his neck in sewage he's got more than enough people available to back him as he tries to dig out. It's a perfect reminder for the rest of us how in parliamentary system allegiance to a party has to, no pun intended, trump allegiance to a policy or person otherwise a leader with a significant parliamentary majority is effectively a dictator.

The lady compiling the report found 16 instances of potential law breaking.

12 of them reached the threshold required to be investigated by the police.

The police have asked for reference to those not to be included in any reports for fear of prejudicing police investigations.

So it turns out that being investigated by the police has actually given him a get out clause.

Was a very theatrical afternoon in parliament with one MP (Blackford, leader of the SNP) being thrown out for calling Boris a liar. Which is ironic seeing as how Boris hasn’t been thrown out for actually lying.

Nik:

Well, it looks like our own Conservative party is going to tear into each other for a while now. Because of Covid policy? No. Because of broader economic policy? No. How about just because of losing the last election? No, apparently the knives are out because Erin O'Toole was too against conversion therapy for LGBT youth.

Way to pick your battles guys. We'll have a Liberal government until the heat death of the universe.
