More UK ministers resign as Boris Johnson clings to power



The Home Affairs Minister and Treasury Minister resign as UK PM Boris Johnson clings to power

Boris Johnson’s premiership is in turmoil after Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid resign – with speculation a new confidence vote in PM could be allowed.

Boris Johnson on his way to PMQs

John Glen, the economic secretary to the Treasury, has resigned.

In a post on his social media, he said the handling of the Chris Pincher scandal  and “poor judgement” shown by Boris Johnson, “have made it impossible for me to square continued service with my conscience”.

He adds: “The country deserves better, and I must return to the backbenchers myself to the service of the people of Salisbury and South Wiltshire.”

It comes after Robin Walker and Will Quince resigned as education ministers.

Victoria Atkins has resigned as justice minister.

In her letter she says: “Values such as integrity, decency, respect and professionalism should matter to us all.

“I have watched with growing concern as those values have fractured under your leadership, through Patterson, Partygate and Pincher.”


She adds: “The events of this week, however, have made these contortions impossible.

“The casual mistreatment of minister Will Quince and the revelations contained in Lord McDonald’s letter highlight just how far your government has fallen from these ideals. 

“I can no longer pirouette around our fracture values.

“We can and must be better than this”.

MP submits no confidence letter in Johnson

Ipswich MP Tom Hunt, formerly a loyal supporter of Boris Johnson, has submitted a letter of no confidence in the prime minister.

Writing on Facebook, Mr Hunt says: “I have come to the conclusion, like a large number of my colleagues, that it’s in the best interests of my constituents, the country and the Conservative Party for the prime minister to step down. 

“A continuation of the status quo cannot continue and, regretfully, I believe that the prime minister’s tenure in office has run its course.”

What Australia can learn from NZ’s supermarket inquiry



Coles and Woolworths, two of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, are about to face a Senate inquiry that aims to scrutinise their market dominance and business practices.

The inquiry’s parallels with a past New Zealand investigation highlight the growing concern over the duopoly’s impact on consumers and smaller businesses.

The Senate inquiry, set to begin next month, comes as a response to mounting public pressure and allegations of anti-competitive behavior in the grocery sector.

New Zealand example

Similar concerns led New Zealand to conduct its own inquiry into the supermarket industry back in 2019, resulting in recommendations for increased regulation and transparency.

The central question here is whether Coles and Woolworths wield too much power in the Australian market, potentially stifling competition and limiting choices for consumers.

With the New Zealand example as a cautionary tale, many are wondering if this inquiry will result in meaningful changes to the Australian grocery landscape.

Elon Musk: Nikki Haley’s ‘campaign is dead’



Elon Musk has thrown a verbal jab at former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, declaring her political campaign as “dead” on X.

The unexpected comment from the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has ignited a new wave of discussion within the political sphere, leaving many wondering about the implications for Haley’s political future.

In a tweet that garnered significant attention, Musk criticized Haley’s recent policy stance, writing, “Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead on arrival if she continues to ignore the urgency of climate change.

We need leaders who prioritize the planet’s future.” The tech mogul’s remarks come as Haley, a prominent Republican figure, has been exploring the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election cycle.

Musk’s statement has reignited the debate over climate change within the Republican Party, with many conservatives emphasizing economic interests over environmental concerns.

This raises questions about whether Musk’s endorsement or critique could influence the GOP’s stance on climate issues and potentially impact the 2024 presidential race.
