Ah yes, the same forgiveness that lets his own kiddie fiddlers off the hook time and time again?
I reckon it's because of Cummings. On one side they've got their love of Boris, but on the other side they know that they have somebody with a load of gossip and is somebody that would be willing to talk about them if he's annoyed enough. They're seeing the potential future headlines over the next few weeks.I'm actually surprised that the Cummings story is still headline news. Seems like anything negative about Boris is either ignored or just mentioned in passing.
I think Cummings is only just beginning. This has got “drip drip” written all over it. He will let Johnson respond and deny before he drops the next bombshell which smashes Boris’ defence.I'm surprised and disappointed that Cummings couldn't come up with something better than this. Pretty much non-stories, no one gives a toss. They're pretty easy to counter as well, not in a tecnically correct way, but in a way average voter will say 'fair enough'.
Giving contracts to mates now, if true, that's what people should be concentrating on.
Correct and the exact reason why this man and any of his others have no place in modern society to be commenting on anything. He only recently just came out and acknowledged the church had major issues with racism. Get your own house in order!Ah yes, the same forgiveness that lets his own kiddie fiddlers off the hook time and time again?
Flies in the face of politicians telling (generally outspoken left wing) celebrities to "stay out of politics". It's an absolutely stupid phrase to use in the first place but if they're going to use it then maybe it should apply to absolutely everyone.
Over what? People paying for his flat to be decorated - he wanted to save the taxpayer money. Dyson wanting to make sure his staff weren't taxed twice, in two countries? - sounds reasonable. Those answers might not be actually correct but they'll do the job, Boris won't lose a single vote over this, not one.It was easy for the Brexit voters to side with Boris, until now I hope. Cummings was a real a champion of theirs, someone who "understood the silent majority". Who will these numerous voters side with on this?
Well that's progress - no 19th century politician would measure up to the standards of the 21st century? Fantastic.
Would help if it was on BBC news to begin with....Boris has probably dictated his rebuttal to Laura K about how his comments were 'taken out of context' or' 'they weren't meant to be taken seriously' or ' I never said those words'. The BBC will bend over backwards to downplay this.
Is it just tittle tattle though?Would help if it was on BBC news to begin with....
Yes, because he is the problem, not our corrupt government.Cummings being shown in his true light.
He's blabbing about private stuff now, which is inconvenient & very embarrassing for the PM & the Government, but this guy is privy to national secrets which may affect the security of the country.
I think he should be locked up so that he can't spill anything that's actually important.
