Olympics Swimming Finals
Treating the Public With Utter Contempt!
Just when you think the Conservatives cannot treat the public with yet more contempt - they do!
First we saw the fiasco of empty corporate seats at events in the Olympic Games at much sought after events. Now it has been revealed that Conservative London Mayor, Boris Johnson has given Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng free tickets to watch the finals of the swimming. These tickets have been some of the most sough after tickets in the Games, with fans who applied months ago being turned down disappointed and the families of swimmers taking part have only been issued with one ticket per swimmer and have also been turned away.
Rupert Murdoch's News International is under police investigation and is the subject of the judicial Leveson Inquiry. Apparently none of this matters and as usual the mayor has treated not just Londoners, but the entire country with disdain, doing exactly what he wants, when he wants and how he wants. In 2010 Johnson has previously described complaints about Murdoch's newspapers hacking the phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler and others including top politicians and celebrities as just "codswallop", so I guess we all know where he really stands on this.
It appears that Rupert Murdoch awards people who have sided with him in the past, especially over the hacking and now email hacking accusations. His CEO Rebekah Brooks and former defunct News of the World newspaper editor, Andy Coulson, both saw big rewards, her by becoming Murdoch's CEO and him by landing a top job with David Cameron after being forced to resign from the NoW over the hacking affair. David Cameron's judgement was called into question yet again after he ignored advice from several people not hire Andy Coulson. Cameron run into serious difficulties becoming flustered when he appeared at the Leveson Inquiry over questioning about his extended close personal contact with Rebekah Brooks. Both Brooks and Coulson have since been charged with several charges, conspiracy to pervert the course of justice amongst them, they will both appear in court at a later date to face trial.
This situation is about as serious as it gets, yet apparently it is not enough to make Boris Johnson think that perhaps he should not be seen to be giving these much prized tickets away to a billionaire media mogul who he made his gust of honour and who's s company is currently under police investigation over deadly serious charges which could result in Rupert Murdoch's licence to publish newspapers in the UK being revoked!
An internal City Hall investigation is currently underway after it was revealed that Mayor Johnson had deliberately failed to declare other meetings with Rupert Murdoch. The meeting at the Olympic Games is apparently another such meeting that was deliberately withheld from the public in the run up to the games.
In another incident the enclosed link will reveal Conservative Culture secretary Jeremy Hunt, pulling up in his ministerial limo outside the Olympic Games swimming centre and warmly glad handing and greeting no other than Rupert Murdoch and his wife Wendi Deng!
You will remember that not so long ago Jeremy Hunt (tipped as a future Tory leader) was fighting for his job after it was revealed that he had deliberately misled parliament over his connections with James Murdoch and News International and the Murdochs bid to buy the remaining shares in BSkyB. Hunt was found to have lied, but Cameron refused to order a full independent inquiry because he knew that all roads would lead back to him and if Jeremy Hunt was found guilty of lying and misleading, then so too would Prime Minister, David Cameron.

What this reveals is that this mayor and this Conservative led government is treating the public with utter contempt. They are bare faced entertaining their corporate mates and probably bankers at the Games and at taxpayers expense and at the expense of those families of competitors and at the expense of spectators who tried in vain to get tickets but were turned down, after being told none were available.
Boris Johnson has said he is promoting London, I would dispute that, what this shows is that the people we have running this country are blatant liars and that they "are all in it together" the corporations, the bankers, the hedge funders, the media tycoons and the only person that Boris Johnson is promoting is himself. It was revealed when Rupert Murdoch took to twitter that he was considering backing Boris Johnson to replace David Cameron as the Conservative party leader and Prime Minister, in fact there is already talk underway that preparations are currently being made to parachute Boris Johnson into a safe Tory seat to enable him to usurp David Cameron.
It's staggering news! We have the London Mayor a disgraced media mogul who owns the Sun and Times newspapers and others in the Tory party plotting about who will be our *unelected* prime minister and it looks like Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt is also involved. Yet the BBC which is being run by Tory Peer Lord Patton and other "hidden" Tories neglecting to break such a huge story which will have enormous ramifications, not just for the Tory party, but for the entire country? It looks like the "long knives" are already sharpened and out for incompetent David Cameron to be replaced by self styled "clown/buffoon" Boris Johnson and hardly a mention in the broadcast media or right wing press?
We are entitled to ask; "just what the hell is going on"? Why does the entire Conservative led government and the entire Conservative party believe they have the right to treat the public with such utter unbelievable contempt? Not only do we have the most shambolic incompetent government in the history of this country, but they have been allowed to get away with so much by the broadcast media and the right wing press, that they now believe they are invincible and can do what they like, when they like - I hope people remember this when it comes to voting at the next election.
