Boris Fails As His Limitations Become Obvious to All | John Kreis | Politics



BOris Johnson’s total lack of shame has long been one of his defining narcissistic traits. His willingness to betray his family, friends, and colleagues for immediate personal gain is well known. Likewise, his incompetence – his inability to understand the basic details – was also brought into the equation, as no one on the Tory benches really cared about that. Boris was just Boris.

But something changed over the summer. Johnson is no longer seen as the person with the winning touch. In fact, quite the opposite. Many conservatives are slowly waking up to the fact that he can be a burden. Many prime ministers have found that it takes a different skill and mindset to occupy a top position than to reach a top position.

The difference with Boris is that he shows no signs of wanting to learn how to adapt to change. Rather, he is getting worse and worse as prime minister. Limitations are increasingly manifested in laziness, irascibility and forgetfulness.

The Prime Minister’s questions are often ignored as a theater performance. Something interesting only for those inside the Westminster Bubble. And there is some truth in this. But they also open a window to a leader’s soul, revealing qualities such as empathy, wit, intelligence, and humility.

And on all counts, Boris fails: his inability to assess not only the mood of others. the House of Commons but the nation is also a borderline sociopath. As if he sat down in a bunker, surrounded by “yes men” – there are almost no women in Boris’s inner circle – who tell him only what he wants to hear.

On the contrary, Keir Starmer learns quickly. His first PMQ visits were never less than competent, but they were awkward. It was like he was working out how to play the role of the man elected as the leader of the Labor Party. But now we are starting to see a real man. His questions are similarly focused, but he now has the ability to think tirelessly and respond to the prime minister’s lies and misinformation with genuine disbelief, anger and – if necessary – humor. There is only one person in PMQ who looks like the right person to run the country, and that is not Boris.

It wasn’t then that the Labor leader was not spoiled by lines of attacks on the prime minister, and, as one would expect, Starmer chose to plunge into chaos in the exams. Either Boris knew about the problem and chose not to know anything, or he did not know about it, although he had to do it. Simple question: what was it? As you might expect, Boris resorted to bullshit and bragging. Labor never wanted children to go to school again. An outright lie as Starmer was unequivocal in his support for the students returning multiple times in May and June.

After that, Johnson had a complete collapse. Even the few Tories in the audience had the grace to be embarrassed. At first, Boris accused Keir of opposing Brexit – as if leaving it meant that you automatically want tens of thousands of people to die from the coronavirus, and less affluent students demoted in their A-levels. He then accused Starmer of being an IRA supporter.

This was too much for both the Labor leader and Speaker Lindsay Hoyle. Hoyle has been reluctant in the past to challenge Johnson as he walks into a tangential mega-tirade, but this time he quickly reined in him.

For obvious reasons, Starmer looked furious and reminded Boris that, as the head of the prosecutor’s office, he had brought charges against many terrorists. He could also point out that he was not the one who recently proposed the peerage to Claire Fox, who defended the Warrington bombing in 1993 when she was a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party.

“If he was a decent person, he would apologize,” Starmer said. But Boris is not a decent person, so he didn’t. Instead, he continued to run. The vacation scheme will not have any expansion, because it will simply encourage people to stay at home and do nothing. As if the prospect of being unemployed is the lifestyle of millions of workers.

In the end, Starmer asked why Johnson is now refusing to meet with the families of those who have lost loved ones to Covid-19, promising to do so on television just days before. Remind me, was this the 12th or 13th reversal in the last six weeks? It’s time for Boris’s sad face. Or, if it doesn’t work, a serious person. But he can’t do the same, so he just smirked slightly. The reason he was not going to see the deceased was not because he cared too little, but because he cared too much. Their stories can make him unhappy. In addition, it would be inappropriate, since the victims were in litigation with the authorities. There was not, but what other lie among so many?

The recession caused by Starmer lasted until the end PMQ… Boris seemed to have no idea that there were a huge number of industries, such as aviation, tourism, and hospitality, that weren’t going to bounce back anytime soon.

He also didn’t know that Matt Hancock had just renewed several local bans at the very moment he said more people should return to work. One day it may occur to Boris that some companies might not want to criticize the health of their employees, forcing them to return before the workplace is properly protected. But today is not that day.

Rather, it was the day that Boris’s guardians tried to get him out of the House of Commons before he did any further damage to the country or the Tory party.

It was also a day for those watching PMQ to ask themselves how they deserved a leader who is falling apart noticeably week after week. There was never anything very clever about Boris: now there is nothing even funny. Of all the coronavirus joints in all cities in the world, it enters ours.

An open letter to a pastor-politician – Co-authors



An open letter to a pastor-politician - Co-authors

My dear pastor, I will probably vote for you, and not for your struggle for faith, because I adhere to a different theology, because we respect our unusual beliefs, but I will vote for you, for your social cosmic vision, solidarity and beneficial influence on people who, in my opinion, are inalienable qualities of any politician, and in this we have common interests.

However, I regret that you registered as a “pastor” in the Electoral Justice for your candidacy, because I do not vote for the pastor of the church, I vote for the politics of the society and when you use the name of the profession, nothing depends on faith, it is different from those shepherds who usurp the confessional electorate, in the manner of modern colonels and their bridle oaths.

The current candidates for the pastor of the church often gain votes among their co-religionists and sometimes swearingly promise the blessings of the church and its ministers, and sometimes even call themselves candidates of God, daring to use the name of God. as if God chose him over others, because all his children and he has no formal preferences, he will only prefer those who do good.

Calling him by the name of Peter, John, James in no way detracts from him, on the contrary, his image was built as the cornerstone of the church, which welcomed and helped people of any race, religion, like a Samaritan on the way.

If you were a “political pastor” you would not run for elections because you know that the pastor is also involved in politics to build a more just society, however, since you are a “political pastor” you should refrain from using a religious nickname. aiming at the ballot box, which, by the way, is growing every day according to the Supreme Electoral Court, so as not to confuse the divine service with the ordinary electoral, and there are those who use conscience, who say that they are the mediators of God’s work in politics, but God has not given them power of attorney and does not need representatives for this, he prefers good people in politics, even if they are atheists.

Political party and Supreme play against tax cuts



Political party and Supreme play against tax cuts

Brazilian industry shook up Minister Alexandre de Moraes. This is due to the fact that a presidential decree was issued to reduce FDI by 25% for a large list of goods. The political party filed a complaint with the Supreme Court, saying it would harm the Manaus Free Trade Zone. The case fell into the hands of Alexandre de Moraes, who issued an injunction suspending the decree.

The President of the Republic and Minister Paulo Guedes then removed products from the industry that were competitors or similar, leaving only those that did not compete with the Manaus Free Trade Zone. The decrease in IPI will be 35%. The same party appealed to the STF again, Alexandre de Moraes issued another injunction and canceled the decree again.

Now the National Confederation of Industry has received the signatures of all the federations of industry in the country, except, of course, the federations of Amazonas, as well as the federations of Amapa. They argue that Moraes’ decision creates uncertainty and impedes lower consumer prices, making it difficult for the economy to recover. The party that went to the STF against the decrees is Solidarity, it’s good that we know this. Solidarity may even defend the free trade zone in Manaus, but it does not advocate lower food prices for the rest of the country.

Alexandre de Moraes takes office as President of TSE

This Tuesday, at 19:00, at the headquarters of the TSE – a wonderful palace, I will show you a photo; it’s too luxurious, too big for something that organizes elections every two years, but still… – Boloznaro, Lula and Alexandre de Moraes are going to meet. And with them Dilma and Temer, since the former presidents were already invited; I assume that Fernando Enrique Cardoso was also invited, but I don’t know if he will come. The Presidents of the House, Senate, Supreme Court and other higher courts will still be present.

All of them will pass into the possession of Alexandre de Moraes, who will replace Edson Fachin at the head of the electoral justice; Finally, Fashin leaves, and now he is just in the Supreme Court. The ceremony gives a measure of the responsibility of the new TSE President. This is one of the most important elections in the history of this country. And Moraes should know very well what history records and does not forgive. They are all busy making the verification process safer for everyone to understand. Even the Armed Forces are helping – and it must be admitted that this was at the request of the most selective justice system.

Thursday ends deadline for those wishing to vote outside their electoral residence

Speaking of this, we must remember that we must all vote. There is an age when voting becomes optional, from 16 to 18 and then from 70, but we all go to vote. And anyone who is outside their electoral residence can vote too. But you have to ask, register with the electoral court, that you will vote in transit. Deadline expires: You must be on the electoral roll by Thursday 18. When voting en route, anyone in another state votes for President only; anyone in the same state will be able to vote normally, as well as governor, deputies, and senator. But let’s follow the deadline!

SERVICES – EJA Phase 1 students will be provided with the following services: EJA Directed, EJA Multiphase and EJA Vinculada. The EJA Directed document explains that this is an alternative to serving a working student at any stage of the modality who, for various reasons, has difficulty participating in activities at the beginning or end of the academic shift.

For these students, the system must develop the activities previously planned by the teachers in order to complete the workload provided for the learning component. The feasibility of the activities and the scope of work will be carried out only after the completion of the planned activities.
