WHY was drunken Chris Pincher not immediately kicked off the Tory benches for his alleged groping shame?
It would have reflected far better on Boris Johnson’s judgment had he suspended him as soon as The Sun’s exclusive dropped.1Boris Johnson should have IMMEDIATELY kicked Chris Pincher off Tory benches for 'groping' shame
Pincher had already confessed, apologised and quit his Government role.
Better to have withdrawn the whip then and ordered a probe.
Not doing so outraged ex-MP Neil Parish, who WAS unceremoniously dumped by the Tories and wanted Pincher treated equally.

Questions will be asked about how No10 and the Cabinet Office appointed Pincher to a role overseeing MPs’ discipline and welfare.
He’d already quit such a job in 2017 after similar allegations.
Whatever the reasoning his name now joins a miserable roll-call of Conservative scandal, resignations and suspensions which grows longer by the week.
But this is not solely a Tory problem, whatever Labour’s cynical opportunists claim. All parties are deep in the mire.Most read in The US SunMONEY IS COMING Deadline to claim $500 direct monthly payments closes in TWO DAYSHAIR SCARE Kylie flaunts REAL hair with no extensions in rare pic & fans are concernedMOM AGAIN?

Labour’s record is arguably worse.
One of its MPs Claudia Webbe, now an independent, got a suspended jail term last year for threatening a love rival with acid.
Labour’s Fiona Onasanya was banged up for lying to police. Past Labour MPs did time for expenses fraud.
The Lib Dems’ Chris Huhne was jailed for perverting justice.
And the SNP can hardly gloat over Pincher. Not when their insufferably sanctimonious Westminster leader Ian Blackford rallied support for his ex-chief whip Patrick Grady, accused of sexually assaulting a teenager.
Meanwhile just two days ago one-time SNP rising star Natalie McGarry was jailed for embezzlement.
Voters know MPs’ grubby antics are a massive cross-party problem.
And this is just the wrongdoing we know about.
How much more is this staggeringly disreputable cohort of politicians guilty of?Is VAT wise?
A VAT cut isn’t the cure-all it might seem.
It would make everything cheaper for all short-term. Longer-term, that risks making this inflation nightmare worse.
Better, surely, to target the real source of pain: Fuel prices and energy bills, both making food more costly too.
Slashing VAT and green levies on energy and VAT and duty on petrol and diesel makes more sense to us.

Johnson & Johnson stops selling popular product over cancer fears
JOHNSON & Johnson is to stop making and selling talc-based baby powder around the world from next year.
The announcement comes two years after the pharmaceutical giant stopped selling the baby product in the US.1Johnson & Johnson continue to insist their talc is safe, and there is no risk of asbestos or cancerCredit: Alamy
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has found itself facing a raft of lawsuits in recent years by mothers claiming their talcum powder causes cancer.
British ovarian cancer charity Ovacome has previously voiced concerns surrounding the use of talcum powder around the genital area.
It said the powder could increase the risk of ovarian cancer, although there is no consistent evidence.
Despite this, J&J have continue to insist their talc is safe, and there is no risk of asbestos or cancer.Read more on cancerUNLUCKY NUMBER The 13 red flag symptoms of cancer you must absolutely get checked outKILLER WAITS Cancer patients becoming terminally ill and 'dying because of long NHS waits'
In a statement J&J said: "We stand firmly behind the decades of independent scientific analysis by medical experts around the world that confirms talc-based JOHNSON’S® Baby Powder is safe.
"It does not contain asbestos, and does not cause cancer," it said.
J&J said it had "made the commercial decision to transition to an all cornstarch-based baby powder portfolio".
It added that cornstarch-based baby powder was already sold in countries worldwide.
A 2018 Reuters investigation claimed that J&J knew for decades that asbestos -- a carcinogen -- was present in its talc products.
Internal company records, trial testimony and other evidence tended to show that from at least 1971 to the early 2000s, J&J's raw talc and finished powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos.What is talcum powder made of?

Talcum powder is made from talc, which is a clay mineral composed of silicon, magnesium, and oxygen.
People have taken advantage of its soft and absorbent properties since the time of the ancient Egyptians.
In talc’s most natural form, it contains asbestos, which is known to cause cancer in the lungs when inhaled, but all talcum products in the US have been asbestos-free since the 1970s.
Now talc is used for a variety of reasons: as a baby powder, in chewing gum and candy, and even in olive oil.What is baby powder used for?
Baby powder is used to help absorb moisture on the skin and to prevent odors when it's used as deodorant, and can be used to prevent friction and to protect against rashes.
It can also be used as a cleaning agent and as shampoo.
