BORIS Johnson has urged the Tories to focus on fighting crime and slashing taxes after Brexit in a secret leadership pitch to Tory MPs. The ex-foreign secretary made a fresh rally cry to MPs at an event at the Centre for Social Justice think tank last week. The Brexiteer, 54, courted 30 politicians and told them: "Our One Nation Tory values will knock Corbyn out of the park". One MP told the Mail on Sunday: "It came across as a clear Boris pitch to us that he was more than just a Brexiteer constantly agitating against Theresa May’s cop-out to Brussels. "There was a lot of talk about fighting crime, building infrastructure, expanding home ownership, cutting taxes, all that sort of thing." The policies will be popular among Tory voters and members alike - but it's the latter he has to woo to get into No10 in the first place. Mr Johnson is widely seen as the favourite to take over from Mrs May if she stands down as PM or gets booted out. The Sun revealed earlier this month that she … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson urges Tories to tackle crime and cutting taxes after Brexit in secret leadership pitch to Tory MPs

JOHN McDonnell was today branded a "poundland Lenin" after he blasted Winston Churchill as a villain. The Shadow Chancellor sparked a furious backlash from the heroic PM's grandson, Tory MP Nicholas Soames. Boris Johnson also piled in and called on Mr McDonnell to withdraw his controversial comments. But the top Corbynista has refused to apologise and said he was pleased to have provoked a debate. Asked during an onstage interview yesterday whether Churchill was a hero or a villain, Mr MCDonnell replied: "Tonypandy - villain." The quip was a reference to Churchill's decision to send soldiers to the Welsh village of Tonypandy to break up riots in 1910. Mr Soames hit back saying: "Frankly it’s a very foolish and stupid thing to say. "I think my grandfather’s reputation can withstand a publicity-seeking assault from a third-rate, poundland Lenin." Winston Churchill saved this country and the whole of Europe from a barbaric fascist and racist tyrannyBoris Johnson Matt Hancock … [Read more...] about Churchill’s grandson blasts John McDonnell as ‘poundland Lenin’ after top Corbynista smears hero PM
PIERS Morgan has blasted a Scottish MSP as a "thick ginger turd" after he attacked Winston Churchill as a "white supremacist mass murderer". Ross Greer laid into the legendary wartime hero, prompting a blast back from the Good Morning Britain host. A tweet from the Conservative party said the was the "greatest Briton to have ever lived". It paid tribute to him on the anniversary of his death on January 24 in 1965. But Mr Greer, a Green politician, responded on Twitter: "Once again for the people in the back. Churchill was a white supremacist mass murderer." Piers hit back in defence of the wartime legend, who led Britain between 1940 and 1945 - leading Britain to victory in World War II and saving the world from Nazi Germany. He then came back to lead the country a final time between 1951 and 1955 too. The GMB host said: "And you're a thick ginger turd who'd be spewing this fifth in German if it wasn't for Churchill." But the 24-year-old stuck to his guns, insisting: "This is the real, … [Read more...] about Piers Morgan calls Scottish MSP a ‘thick ginger turd’ after he blasted Winston Churchill as a ‘white supremacist mass murderer’
WINSTON Churchill will always be remembered as the brave and unflinching British Prime Minister who led our country to victory in WWII. Despite his heroics, there are some who have branded him an Imperialist "white supremacist". Here's why... What were Winston Churchill's views on race? There are many people, both now and at Churchill's time, who found his views on race and ethnicity alarming. As an MP, he showed a very Imperial mindset in his desire to conquer more nations based on his belief that "the Aryan stock is bound to triumph", the Independent reported. And in 1937, he told the Palestine Royal Commission no great wrong had been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia, according to the BBC. Prime Minister Stephen Baldwin was warned not to appoint him to Cabinet because his views were so old-fashioned, with even Churchill's doctor saying: "Winston thinks only of the colour of their skin." Why did Benjamin Whittingham brand him a racist and white … [Read more...] about What were Winston Churchill’s views on race and why was he called a ‘racist and white supremacist’?
PIERS Morgan attacked an academic today who compared Churchill to Hitler and asked him why he hadn’t moved away from the country he “clearly hates”. The extraordinary row came as a retired American astronaut was forced to apologise yesterday for praising Churchill as “one of the greatest leaders of modern times” after he was hounded on Twitter for his remarks. Kehinde Andrews, a professor of black studies at Birmingham City University, clashed with Mr Morgan on Good Morning Britain as he claimed Britain was “built on racism” and “everyone involved in it probably has a really racist past.” His comments came after Scott Kelly, who commanded three expeditions to the International Space Station, was forced to delete a tweet praising Churchill. After receiving hundreds of critical comments, he apologised, saying Churchill had “racist views” and was responsible for “atrocities”.
