There seems to be a lot less "ordinary" people falling for it today.

It's almost enough to make me hope people have finally seen through the bullshit. But it's the hope that kills you. :cry:

Seeing a lot of "it's just Remoaners bitter about Brexit" and claims this is a non-story for a Westminster bubble. It blatantly isn't.

EDIT - Grant Shapps seems a bit nervous at this press briefing. :lol:

It's too much to hope the press tear Shapps to pieces.

Yeah there are some twats/bots saying that. But I'm surprised there are so many seeing this as the outrage that it is.

Pretty much the entire cabinet have staked their political careers on Cummings today so he's going nowhere.

"Alright Dom, we'll get the whole cabinet to stake their political careers on you. But be honest with us, you've told us exactly what happened, right?"

"Yeah, the story should check out,"

*BREAKING NEWS*

"Ah, yeah I went back sorry"

It's telling how few Tory backbenchers seem to have backed him.

His mother's birthday happens to be in April. I'm not sure the exact date but wouldn't surprise me if it was the first week and that is why he took the whole family up there.

They knew that for ages - they let him show his denial today and then released it

As much as this is preferable to the Thursday shit-show filmed by everyone on my street and thrown on social media shortly afterwards, can we please stop thinking that the answer to strawberry floating everything is banging some pots and pans?

That was very clever by the Mirror and Guardian. Wait for the excuses and defenders to come out for the first part of the story and then smack them with the second part. :lol:

This has properly cheered me up, justice at last. I can guarantee there will be loads of photos of him out and about in the coming days.

To support the NHS I'd buy a Where's Wally book, set in Durham with Cummings in the crowd in each drawing.

Is he in Gregg's? Is he in the Fighting Cocks? Is he in Treats Tea Room? No he's at the Gala theatre with 200 people, all of them self isolating.

When I was in 6th form, our IT teachers taught us the wrong curriculum for the whole year. Consequently, no exaggerating here, of a class of about 20 of us, nobody was graded above an E.

Our IT teacher called us in just before the start of the new school year and said "as a Conservative, I believe that if you make a mistake, you should resign".

He followed up with "however...."

Told me all I ever needed to know about Conservatives. They don't resign, they don't have responsibility or any sense of honour. Its about making money and always will be.
