Political genius right enough. Reminds me of a line in 'Rivers of London' where the main character works as a police officer in the Met.

1. Lovely reading, those figures.

2. Lovely reading, those books.

There are Tory MPs all over the country at this moment dealing with filled mailboxes from angry constituents. They're weighing up the anger of people against their loyalty to the Führer. 

Polls like the one above are bringing them out in a cold sweat.

Khqunts, one and all.

Sadly it’s too soon after Johnson’s landslide election victory to make much odds.

If this had happened three years from now Cummings would be away already.

Have we got confirmation if the wife drives yet? That blows his whole story apart.

This is the wife who was never too ill to look after the children, negating the entire journey in the first place.
 

She wrote a piece in The Spectator a couple of years back that mentioned she drove somewhere. It was tweeted quite a lot yesterday.

maybe her eyesight wasn't up to it at the moment in question, though ?

that's the sort of thing you don't take risks with - it's not as if you can just jump in your car and swan about for a bit to test if your eyesight is good enough to drive, is it ?

That photo reminds me of an old photo of the late Mark E Smith for some reason.

I would be a lot more forgiving.

In normal times, maybe. Right now? I have never heard (irl), read (online and print) or seen (online and TV) such united disgust at a ruling Party. It started with Cummings, then Johnson, and now ministers are tying themselves to this particular handcart. Honestly, the Tories have managed to find something, maybe the only thing, that can make the scales drop from the GBP's eyes. We cannot afford the defeatist idea of "oh, it's the wrong time in the electoral cycle" any more. We have to take this anger and focus it.

That landslide was in terms of seats. In terms of votes, it was much less impressive.

To paraphrase Wilson, let's make this the longest week in politics these arseholes have ever had.

This is the sort of stuff that will get the 1922 committee twitching a bit.

I thought he took the entire journey to keep his wife and kid safe from bullies while he was bed bound at work.

Watching the briefing, the Test and Protect strategy is starting this week.  Sounds like a promising development.

Received a delightful e-mail earlier: ‘Stay out of politics or we’ll kill you.’ For me the whole Cummings drama is not about politics but life and death. If trust in Government guidance is eroded we’ll have a second spike and 1000s of lives will be lost.

Straight off the bat with the 'I didn't quite hear that question' to give him more time to think of an answer.

I think it will have a long term impact but sadly I think the length of time to the next GE and the size of the majority makes Johnson fairly bullet proof.
