Dominic Cummings’s recollection of coronavirus spread was seen through lens of hindsight

Dominic Cummings’s recollection of coronavirus spread was seen through lens of hindsight

Captain hindsight. It is one of those phrases Boris Johnson likes to shout across the Commons chamber at Keir Starmer during PMQs, a phrase Health Secretary Matt Hancock has lately started trotting out whenever anyone asks whether he took the right decisions in the face of the coronavirus.

This is a one minute wonder going nowhere. The rank and file Conservative people couldn’t care less what he says. They respect his talent but are unimpressed by his treachery and his obvious wierdness. They do care whether Johnson makes a sucess of Brexit. He is doing OK but there is a long way to go. Sunak – hmmm lots of problems there as you say. Boris is a very left wing conservative who once voted for the hated Ken Clarke as leader but unlike Clarke he understood the need for Brexit. That makes him quite a good fit for… Read more »

Personally, I think Boris is too influenced by his CARRIEr bag lady. As for Cummings, he was put there to get the Civil Service sorted out, the people who have been there since leaving Uni with jobs for life, regardless of whether they deserve them or not. Hence Cummings asking for “creative thinkers” outside the establishment. I’m led to believe that Cummings is a creative thinker himself hence being given the position he was. (Daniel Hannan, Sunday Telegraph some time in 2016.)

The Tory party isn’t exactly what the UK needs right now. “Great” no longer…

And the alternative would be? Kier Starmer who ridiculed the Vaccine Taskforce and wanted Britain to stay in the EU’s procurement programme? Hmmm, Kier, a man of judgement – NOT!

We have to face facts, there is no political party anymore who represents the great swath of individuals in the U.K. Governments across the western world are pushing us into globalism – one world government, where we, the people, do NOT elect those who are going to push us around. And push us around they will. We will be governed by the UN, WHO, UNICEF and other NGO’s who could not give a s**t about us, and actually want us culled in large numbers, to protect resources. Those who are left will be transmogrified into part human, part computer as… Read more »

The UK needs to institute better environmental legislation. Noxious weeds like Cummings and Johnson should not be allowed to proliferate.

They’re very sensitive to the nick-name Clowning Street, but Boris got the northerners to vote for him, just like they did for Thatcher, but he’s past his sell-by date. I wonder when the northerners will wake up to the fact, the Tories hate them? Why would anyone with any intelligence vote for a party that wanted to privatise SCHOOLS and the NHS back in the seventies! https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/nov/25/margaret-thatcher-pushed-for-breakup-of-welfare-state-despite-nhs-pledge The plan commissioned by Thatcher and her chancellor Sir Geoffrey Howe included proposals to charge for state schooling, introduce compulsory private health insurance and a system of private medical facilities that “would, of… Read more »
