    Looks like another Brexit type plan - Boris and the Torys have no plan to cut outside employment and income as how will they get paid off?

    Fewer than 10 MPs are likely to be affected by Boris Johnson’s proposed rule changes on second jobs, analysis of the register of interests suggests.

    It came as the prime minister conceded it was a “total mistake” to back disgraced MP Owen Paterson, admitting to backbench MPs on the 1922 committee “on a clear road I crashed the car into a ditch”.

    That's interesting.

    I remember Prime Minister Johnson saying he would die in a ditch.

    It was when he promised UK would be out of EU by October 31 2019

    Unfortunately, he didn't.

    He lies. He knows that we know he lies but he knows the public have priced this in. The public would rather be lied to than hear the truth. The lies will eventually cause his downfall but after how much damage to the country and democracy?

    Being a Tory is not supporting policies - its a mindset - they just want to punch down. Working class Tories who have services cut, education spending cut turn around and unload on people on Universal Credit - the majority being the once working on low incomes.

    As long as Tories can enable people to punch down - it's something rotten in our society that so many want to punch down.
