Labour press release;
It’s no wonder even Tory MPs are today calling for Chris Grayling to resign - Watson
Tom Watson MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on a leaked letter sent in April 2013 by Chris Grayling to then London Mayor Boris Johnson, said:
“This is a disgraceful revelation that shows the Tories put party politics before rail passengers and it will leave commuters worse off.
“Labour’s Mayor of London put forward a plan which would see commuters enjoy a better service and frozen fares. We now see the Tories have blocked this progress for their own narrow political interest. It’s shameful and demonstrates that for all their bluster about caring about working people they always put themselves first.
“It’s no wonder even Tory MPs are today calling for Chris Grayling to resign: he’s in serious hot water.
"But following the publication of the leaked letter, Bob Neill, Tory MP for Bromley and Chislehurst in south-east London, called for Mr Grayling to resign as Transport Secretary. He told the Press Association: "If you look at what he said about the business case, that doesn't stand true to me. "He took the decision which he had already taken beforehand on purely partisan grounds. "I think it's disgraceful behaviour." Mr Neill added: " He's done a great deal of harm to London commuters who would've benefited significantly. "I think he should go."
Is Chris Grayling toast?
You all remember that nice Mr Grayling, Leader of the House; a right wing Tory, who is now a leading Brexit campaigner and wants the EHRA to be abolished and a new British Bill of rights put in its place.
Jolly reserved, polite sort of fellow isnt he, wanting our independence from Europe so the British people make decisions that affect them and all that jazz.
I'm sure you know who I mean.
Well cast your mind back about 6 years ago and remember the landlady who threw out two gays (we all know Europe is full of them and more from the Daily Mail lol). Remember that case?
"Its fine if someone wants to discriminate against gays and not have them in your BnB" was more or less his words at the time.
Well bring yourself forwards to 2016 and the referendum and the British Bill of rights and his mate the 'Pickininy' Prime Minister Johnson.
Is that REALLY why you want to BREXIT?
Cos thats what you get.
Oh you dont care about Gays anyway? Oh you dont believe that Hitler started on all the odd balls before he moved on to mass extermination of the Jews and other malcontents either, do you?
Well ask anyone who kept quiet when the German Reich started its programmes of discrimination back in 1932 and see if the " It cant happen here" belief really holds any water!!!
You think that everyone is as honest and open as you and you dont believe that these politicians would ever do anything like that, after all they are British.
They would if the EU wasnt there to stop them.
You mark my words, which are repeated words of parents and uncles and aunties who fought against the Nazi filth and their propagandists: and who at the time of the inception of the Common Market could see that at last what they fought for was being consolidated across the continent. They could see that it was on a par with the UN actually, but our very own just for Europe.
They are dead and gone for the most part now, but still there in our memories arent they. The gratitude we hold is still as strong now as it was back there then.
Give the likes of Grayling, Johnson and Farage the chance and not only will we be totally enslaved to Global corporations, and our economy all but shot, our NHS, as we know it, will have all but disappeared, and as for the rights of minorities?
Well you really know the outcome there dont you?
