‘We Don’t Need Sue Gray’s Review!’ – Emily Thornberry Says What Everyone’s Thinking
Emily Thornberry told BBC Question Time’s audience that Sue Gray’s report into Partygate is not necessary on Thursday night in a brutal rant about Boris Johnson.The shadow attorney general had a scathing take of the ongoing saga surrounding the alleged parties Downing Street held when the rest of the country was in lockdown and called for the prime minister to resign.While the prime minister has apologised for the parties, he continues to claim that it was all “technically” within the rules in place at the time – and deflected any other criticism onto top civil servant Sue Gray’s investigation.Yet, Thornberry said: “We don’t need to have Sue Gray’s review.“I don’t think the prime minister needs to have it either.″He knows he broke the rules, he knows they used to have wine Fridays, he knows what was going on and he knows that their attitude was that the rules didn’t apply to them.”She added: “And it is insulting to us that he doesn’t just show a little modicum of humanity and humility and just go.”“It’s insulting to us that he doesn’t show a modicum of humanity and humility, and just go”@EmilyThornberry says the Prime Minister’s defence that he was not warned a party was against the rules is “nonsense”. #bbcqtpic.twitter.com/Ua347iB1Jn— BBC Question Time (@bbcquestiontime) January 20, 2022She also pointed out that “the rules apply to everybody, whoever you are, that’s the rule of law”, even though “the prime minister and his friends in government have more than given the impression that the rules don’t apply to them”.Thornberry continued: “The prime minister is more than prepared to look you in the eye and lie to you.″And lie to you again and again.“First of all he says I haven’t broken the rules, there wasn’t a party, and then he says there wasn’t a party and then he says if there was a party it wasn’t against the rules, and so on and so on and so on.“It’s nonsense.“Up and down the country people are being prosecuted for this.“Just think how difficult it is for magistrates at the moment applying these rules and yet it doesn’t seem to apply to the government.”Thornberry also dubbed No.10 “pathetic” last week over ministers’ claims that the lockdown rules were “too difficult” to abide by.Related...Emily Thornberry Becomes An Internet Sensation After Sharing Her Scathing Take On Latest Partygate ExcuseLiz Truss Makes Awkward Slip-Up And Promises To 'Bang The Dumb' For BritainLabour Shadow Cabinet Reshuffle: Who's In And Who's Out?

Baby Doll, These Are The Cringiest Pet Names In The UK
You have a secret, cringe-worthy pet name for your partner, don’t you? (We know you do. Because, chances are, so do we.)It’s embarrassing to admit but many of us have soppy, made-up, onomatopoeic terms of endearment that we utter with love. But there are also the more traditional pet names we like to stick to in social settings. Greeting cards company Thortful has now listed some of the most popular affectionate words we use to refer to our partners. And, as expected, some of them are pretty cringe.Thortful carried out a survey asking people what the nation’s preferred monikers for their significant others are. The data showed that almost half of Brits (47%) are guilty of calling their other half something soppy.But the majority of respondents did admit to sticking to the more conventional monikers, with ‘love’ coming out on top.  Almost a third (29%) of 1,500 respondents revealed it was their go-to name.Next on the list was ‘babe’ with 25% admitting they use it, followed by 17.5% saying ‘honey’ and 15.3% sticking to ‘sweetie’.But those are pretty normal, right? Where’s the cringe in that? Well, luckily, some respondents told all. While ‘handsome’ might not be all that embarrassing, 9.4% did admit to using it.Meanwhile, 7.7% said they use ‘honey bun’, followed by 7.6% with ‘sweetpie’, and ‘boo’ at 5.3%.And some even admitted to using ‘baby boy/girl’ (4.8%) while others prefer ‘princess’ (4.7%).But no matter what the pet name, the majority of couples said they prefer to use them at home, with 76% saying they use their partner’s real name when they’re in public.And it seems this embarrassment goes both ways, as 32% revealed they would be mortified if their partner used these terms out in the world.These are the most-used pet names: Love – 29%Babe – 25%Honey – 17.8%Sweetie – 15.3%Handsome – 9.4%Honey Bun – 7.7%Sweetpie – 7.6%Boo – 5.3%Baby Boy/Baby Girl – 4.8%Princess – 4.7%Related...Help, I've Fallen For My Friend.
