Boris Johnson has been accused of leading a government based on sleaze and degradation, and it came as he defiantly stood by under fire Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick amid cash for favours claims, repeatedly declaring the matter was closed.
It came after Robert Jenrick seemed to admit racing through planning permission to help Tory donor Richard Desmond reduce the tax bill for property development.
Business Minister Nadhim Zahawi said: “If people go to a fundraiser in their local area…for the Conservative Party, they will be sitting next to MPs and other people in their local authorities and can interact with different parts of the authority.”
Text and emails released by Robert Jenrick show he was persistent that a £1 billion property deal be approved promptly, after he met Richard Desmond at a £900 a plate Tory fundraising dinner in November 2019 – the pair swapped numbers and kept in touch.
Robert Jenrick greenlit the deal the day before the local Labour council, in one of the country’s most deprived areas and was set to introduce a tax on new property developments to pay for improved facilities and infrastructure.
In one text, Richard Desmond urged Robert Jenrick to move swiftly in approving the £1 billion Westferry Printworks housing development in London’s Tower Hamlets because they didn’t want to give Marxists loads of doe for nothing.
In reply, Robert Jenrick warned Richard Desmond it was important not to give any appearance of being influenced by applicants of cases that he may have a role in or to have predetermined them and so he thought it was best that they didn’t meet until after the matter had been decided.
In another text, to which Robert Jenrick didn’t respond, Richard Desmond said an early decision would save him £45 million, meaning he could afford to include more social housing in the East London development. Robert Jenrick later had to revoke his own approval, declaring that the decision was unlawful due to possible prejudice.
Business minister Nadhim Zahawi appeared to infer any developer who wanted to have vested access to decision-makers should attend a Tory fundraising event, but Nadhim Zahawi, himself a millionaire, accentuated that the access did not buy this billionaire a decision.
The Stratford upon Avon MP has a property portfolio worth £25 million, including a £13 million property in London’s Belgravia.
Amid 2015 and 2017 he was believed to be Westminster’s second highest-earning MP, sweeping in £5000,0000 in profits on top of his MP’s wages. Robert Jenrick also owns a more than modest property portfolio including a £1.1 million mansion in Herefordshire.
And a Labour spokesperson stated that Senior Tories maintain that anyone can get the same access to the Government Richard Desmond relishes. All they have to do is attend ostentatious Tory fundraisers and hope they get perched next to an MP.
The cash for favours scandal has exposed that it’s one rule for the Tories and their affluent friends and another for the rest of us, and the defence of Robert Jenrick is in actuality little more than admission for cash for access, and it seems the Tory Party’s loyalty to the levelling up agenda amounts to sleaze and corruption.
Integrity in politics matters and Robert Jenrick should quit, and if not, the Prime Minister should sack him or else lose all moral power.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson declined to discuss a series of legitimate questions about the affair in a regular Westminster briefing.
He repeated on nine occasions that the Housing Secretary had set out his account in public and to Parliament, including publishing the proper documentation, and that he’d further addressed to the chair of the select committee outlining the timeline of events and the reason for the decision, and he added in light of this report, the Prime Minister deems the topic closed.
Two weeks after Robert Jenrick stepped in to approve the development, Electoral Commission documents show that Richard Desmond personally gave £12,000 to the Conservatives.
Tower Hamlet’s Labour mayor John Biggs stated the revelations about the Westferry Printworks decision had blown apart confidence in the planning system under Robert Jenrick, and that the documents he was compelled to release were damaging and it seemed like he’d hurried through the decision to help save the developer money and short change residents.
The minister referred to the borough as rotten and messages from the developer called the council Marxist, and that this name-calling said more about them and their disregard for the residents whose borough it is, and who rightly want much needed affordable homes and money for local services.
And it appears that there was a Crooked man who lived in a Crooked House on a Crooked Street and Crooked Downing Street has housed the most serial Crooked People throughout its antiquity.
And the house has been the occupant of parasites, narcissists, psychopaths and wicked people with corrupt agendas to bring suffering to the most defenceless in society, and the latest incumbent satisfies each and every one of the offensive qualities in full.
There’s no regard whatsoever for justice, integrity and propriety and the only agenda is their pitiful little petty schemes, and the government surpass at being dumb, ill-disciplined, unfinished, prejudiced of constructive critique, and an embarrassment in a disordered world, and it’s no surprise the world laughs at us, and Boris Johnson is complicit in this scandal and should be facing a reprimand.
This is typical Tory exploitation, and Robert Jenrick would not have given approval without the promise of a large monetary incentive from Richard Desmond, and then when he got found out, he attempted to cover his own back by reversing his decision.
Even people with the minimum brain cell’s no that the Tory party are made up of brown envelopes.
So, here we have it, more Tory nosing through the trough and Robert Jenrick must go immediately tailgated by Boris Johnson who’s way out of his depth.
There seems to be plenty of fodder in the trough for this lot and their political compass is perpetually set to sleaze and depravity, it’s the most satisfying part of the job, yet they don’t make it look like exploitation, simply administrative expediency to get a deal done swiftly under a perfectly legal rule, and it’s starting to look like another example of dimwit’s disappearing up their own rear ends.
That’s presumably what comes of needing a succession of issues for them to spume about and if there’s nothing of substance, make one up.
Robert Jenrick admitted he acted unlawfully, yet he’s supported by Boris Johnson and superior bad boys who are pretty swift at condemning anyone they believe has infringed the law but will completely ignore someone like Robert Jenrick who has admitted breaking the law, and then Boris Johnson expects the British public to take him seriously – that there, is self-delusion at its grandest.
Depravity comes in several configurations and lies are all part of the same system, and Boris Johnson’s government is no different to any other government, except now the Conservatives are now led by a demented jester – an alleged Oxford-educated despot, a groper of women – a disconcerted deceiver, a cheat and the listing goes on.
The Conservatives have always based their policies around economics and getting people out to work, as opposed to analysing their social status or well being, and if they can get away with denying people their human rights, then they can get away with murder in any form, and no doubt, this Conservative MP will simply be given a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again and keep his taxpayer wages too.
But now all the Tory deflectors are out in force – must be the Central Office starting to panic because the British public is starting to see what a shower of self-serving mercenary lowlifes is in government at the moment.
And Robert Jenrick is an utterly criminal imposter of an MP – he’s a rogue, a fool and a nincompoop, and it’s a pity that Boris Johnson doesn’t have the balls to get rid of those who don’t obey the rules, ie Dominic Cummings and Robert Jenrick, and it just confirms what a weak Prime Minister we have in the United Kingdom.
Billions have rocked up in the Tory party coffers from every orifice of slush funds from not only this country through tax evaders with offshore bank accounts through to Margaret Thatcher’s Atlantic Fund and Putin, the head-choppers of the Middle East, but the Tories also are not too fussy where their funds come from.
Corruption the Conservatives are masters of and Boris Johnson is the comedian that will do anything to demonstrate he’s a competent Prime Minister of the people, but hopefully, his puppets will bring his reign of power and stupidity to a bitter end.
And if Boris Johnson’s stupidity continues to support subservient co-workers who ridicule the law or breach ethical procedures, he too must be found liable of aiding and abetting, if not, condoning perversion of office, and her majesty the Queen must be spluttering with rage at the daily misgivings of her government.
They’re nosing through the trough again, and Robert Jenrick seems to be on the edge of anything dodgy and even owns numerous mansions all over the place, and is he also another Tory Lockdown Tourist? And where is he living now?
And now enabling a massive contract for his mate, a Tory donor. Unwittingly sitting next to him at a dinner party – coincidence? Not so sure about that, and donations shouldn’t have been received by them whilst contract bids were in the process – this is deemed bribery in industry.
There are stringent rules to follow to ensure fairness, honesty and without prejudice – it’s called integrity and accountability, and the Tories have broken all the rules.
The trouble is, for every one caught, there’ll be hundreds under the table, it’s just human nature because upper classes believe it’s they’re right to be able to buy anything they want.
But they’re all in it together, and as Robin Williams said, they should be like racing drivers and wear their sponsor’s logos on their suits, then we’ll know who they were working for.
