Cruella Braverman...

...seems to want to out-Nazi, Priti!
Apart from setting unattainable targets for migrant crossings, she thinks we should all jolly-well go back to our offices and relax by watching trashy TV, like Love Island:

She has also asked all staff to watch “trashy TV” to help their “mental wellbeing”, a source said, specifically citing Channel 4’s Married at First Sight and First Dates as well as Love Island.
The latest series of the ITV2 show drew thousands of complaints about alleged misogynistic behaviour. Last month, the charity Women’s Aid highlighted issues including bullying and coercive control.
Sources familiar with Braverman’s address revealed she told them: “It’s important for people to look after their wellbeing. Best antidote [for work-related stress] is trashy TV.”


Yes Cruella, that's really going to make a better Britain....

Other than that it's the same old Tory law and order bollock....

Heartless and Clueless....meet the new boss, same as the old boss....

Another female politician of colour being mocked by Foodie. He really does have an issue with women in power, especially black and brown ones.

It would be more constructive if you could address the political points FF made rather than trying to twist the discussion to gender and ethnicity.
Two politicians with similar right-wing views; one has replaced the other as Home Secretary. FF has expressed a dislike of those views. What's your opinion?

No, he has attacked and belittled the women of colour who were put in those positions. Do you defend his use of offensive nicknames towards an Asian woman and a black woman?

So far as I can see he's used nick names for two successive holders of one of the great offices of state.

Are you suggesting that if holders were (a) Michael Gove and (b) Jacob Rees-Mogg then there would be no such names?

It's a fairly common right-wing trope: to cast any criticism of a non-white politician as somehow racist. Standard deflection from the actual issue. The righteous indignation is almost convincing.

Without speaking for Fabbers, maybe he has not been able to come up with a comedy (or otherwise) nickname for Mary Truss yet.

Yet so many of you casually throw around the racist alegation against anyone you disagree with.

The truth is that your mate Foodie regularly abuses and mocks women in power, especially using their heritage. You are now defending that behaviour because you don't want to accept that he is a racist.

I have never used race to belittle anyone. It isn't righteous indignation, it is simply me pointing out we have a racist in our midst, and you are defending him.

Turds Truss would seem appropriate, but Turds was used for Johnson by Stuart Lee. Wooden Truss would be appropriate....
Seems I have created a bit of a fuss among some...gosh!
