Elites gonna elite. Until we cut off all their heads.

Brexit was a reaction to the elite's lack of empathy with the working classes. In particular not taking their concerns over immigration seriously. Unfortunately it won't be a cure for any of their complaints.

The right is very good at deflecting blame and instilling persecution complexes, especially for stuff that's their fault. It's why a Thatcherite City trader and various Etonian Ayn Rand disciples were able to convince people in economically depressed areas that they were the cure and not the disease.

Imagine blaming bad decisions on the people who took the decisions. That would be nearly as bad as thinking that the reason we apparently can't afford to run the country properly is because rich people have too much when it's clearly the poor who have all the money.

Where the fuck did you pull that out from?

Obviously everything in your world only happens for one reason, but hypothetically if someone paid £3m a year to run a company makes a bollocks of it and then lays off 100 people on £20k a year instead of fucking off out of it to be replaced by someone on £500k who benefits from that? The company suffers, the workers suffer, the country suffers.

Stephen Kinnock "did a Jenrick" and went to see his parents (socially distanced etc but still non-essential).

Someone else went to a funeral.

Someone else did something else, can't remember what.

None of them wrote the guidance as far as I am aware. Everyone has their own view on the guidance, and I think everyone recognises that what Cummings did doesn't matter that much in itself, but people don't like rank hypocrisy or obvious distortion of the truth.

I have only left my flat to walk to the shop for food (and beer) or to exercise. For the latter I was undertaking this once a day. Now three times daily. I have paused to speak to people from a distance. I cross the road if people are on my side and have walked down the middle of the road if a conversation straddles the road.

So, yes, I think I have, though it's easy for me.

This government's instructions have been murky at best. I don't think that was an accident, though thinking that may credit them with more intelligence than they possess.

Oh that is brilliant. He is so angry. His approach to politics completely reshaped the country and led directly to someone like Dom. And the "clique in Downing Street!" And "genuine empathy!" Oh man, he really has no self awareness. Really made me laugh.

He makes some very good points among the bluster though... on the weakness of the cabinet (outside of the core), the bad communications strategy and the complete distraction that this Dom stuff has become.

Ingham was an insidious little presence, but there is no doubt in my view that Thatch drove policy and Bernie's role was to communicate it.

Campbell was part of the team setting policy and setting the political agenda.

Cummings is the end of that journey, where he seems to control overall strategy, individual policies and the strategy for communication. To the extent that one might wonder what the PM does.

Which policies do you think Campbell had input into over and above just communicating it? I have read some of the diaries, he is obviously a Labour person but it reads as if Blair and his small gang of nerds were more or less in charge of actual policy.

To be fair, I haven't read his diaries, but they would probably be taken with a bit of Mandy Rice Davies.

The Blair policy team was built around Blair, Mandy, Campbell and Powell (the so called 'sofa government' which was a break from cabinet government that has never really been restored (and is now reaching perhaps its zenith)). Campbell was a pervasive presence during that time.

Campbell was purely communications and working the media. Listening to him and a lot of his podcasts and stuff, Blair was clearly the captain of the ship and he was the bulldog.

Cummings is the brains behind the entire Government. Ever since we voted to leave, he's been hell bent on getting his man in and running the show himself. He runs the government, to sack him would be sacking the Prime Minister. It's why the moderate end of the Tory party are sticking the boot in, it's their chance to get the party back.

Hopefully they can do it within the next few years as 5 years with him doing this is going to be significantly more harmful than Corbyn and his dickheads that facilitated this shower getting in ever were.

...if it's your misfortune to have one.

Various people are pushing this on Twitter. Bombard them.

I sent this earlier today. You're welcome to use some or all of it, if it makes any sense, unless you live in the Woking constituency. ;o)

'Dear Mr. ........,

I live in your constituency, in ......

In the last 48 hours, it has become very apparent that the British Government's chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, flouted the lockdown rules in place when he journeyed to his parent's house in Durham in mid-April.

Further evidence is coming to light of an additional trip to Durham and at least one trip (to Barnard Castle) from his parent's home while there.

However, the Government currently seems to be in denial and is, in effect, implying that the Durham Police, the media, those that saw Cummings and members of his family in the North-East on these occasions, and others, are lying.

In his role - which included acting as a 'bridge' between SAGE and the Government - he is inextricably linked with the Government's decision on a lockdown strategy. For the messages to be effective, those associated with it need to be exemplary in demonstrating the behaviour expected of the public. He has signally failed in this respect. Moreover, he displays extraordinary arrogance when questioned on the subject. You must be aware that this is rapidly eroding any political 'capital' that the Government will previously have enjoyed.

His position is now untenable. Several of your parliamentary colleagues have, this morning, come out and made it clear that he should go.

Can you please confirm that you agree that his departure from this role is the only way forward, and that you will personally be joining other voices within the party in pressing the Government for this to happen.

Thanking you, in anticipation.

Yours sincerely

(DesCartes)

etc.'

Rumours now on twitter that Cummings son has autism and he therefore went to be near family in Durham because his son would need familiar faces around him. I don’t know enough about autism to comment on this theory.

Cummings is clearly autistic, so the odds are his child may also be autistic.

But what does being autistic mean?

Autism is a spectrum from, sadly, very mentally disabled people to high-functioning autistics like Cummings.

I've no doubt that Cummings realises that he is "on the spectrum". Most in this position try hard to be empathetic like "normals", but it's tough, because it's unnatural for them to think this way. Their "empathy" towards others is a product of hard work (in order to fit in with society), not something that comes naturally, and it can unravel very quickly in stressful situations.

As we've seen.

The key for me was Cummings's wife's comment about him being a decent man. She knows and loves him regardless. He's a lucky guy.

Tory voter here - completely agree with Barnet Ben - a dreadfully poor performance made more unacceptable by his approach to the media when they asked questions. What the fuck did he expect? -- "Oh Boris we believe every word."

Serious question.

Could the tories even do so badly that you vote against them a GE?

Could labour or Lib Dem ever entice you to vote for them with a certain leader/policies?

Serious answer.

I will decide who to vote for in the weeks immediately leading up to the Next GE. If "A week is a long time in politics" then 4 years is a lot longer.

The first sensible decision they have made in a while. The defence of Cummings actions has now become worse and more damaging than the crime itself. Boris should come out and be contrite and not continue with the absurd defence of Cummings.

But, they're going to still try and save Cummings by having the Cabinet Secretary investigate the issue whilst at the same time hoping everyone forgets.

I don't think there's much going on in his mind at all.

He comes across as someone who's revised for a Chemistry exam and turned up to find out he's got the day wrong and it's actually German today.

What exactly did he think he was going to be asked about?

Pretty telling that he's been given no new "lines" from 10 Downing Street though.

Has he thought this through?

Sack Cummings and the media will hunt for every MP who has broken the rules at some point (i.e. most of them). Which means action will have to be taken against them too. This will go on for weeks.

The Kafkaesque rules are the problem, not the breaking of them.

This is a bit like the Back to Basics stuff in the 90s. Government sets an absurd standard that few normal people would meet, media then takes great delight in exposing those who haven't met that standard.

Being interviewed now on the BBC.

I thought this significant when I heard it earlier. Baker is a leading light in (and twice head of) the ERG and usually a Grade 1 asshole. He is understandably concerned about the Tories losing political capital and has 'read the runes'. He's also clearly no fan of Cummings.

He's saying that he's getting positive support from colleagues. Maybe the start of Domin(ic)o effect?

There have been 4 polls in the last 8 to 9 days with the "who will you vote for" question.

Tories 46-48%, Labour 33-35% - In the 2019 GE the figures were 44.7% and 32.9%. The difference since December is due to the near complete collapse of the Liberals.

'The difference since December is due to the near complete collapse of the Liberals.'

WTF. Down from 8% in late January to 6% recently. With no permanent leader right now, and no election in the near future, their opportunity to make their present felt in the current climate is understandably limited.

More significant is a closure of the gap between the main two parties from 19% to 12%.

The point with the lockdown is that if most people adhere to it, then it works. If I breach it in a minor way, that’s bad but doesn’t really affect the arithmetic. If someone in the public eye breaches it, that’s more damaging. If someone from the government does it, that’s terrible

It’s about the impact on people’s behaviour.

The problem all along has been the utter lack of clarity and leadership from this woeful collection of misfits masquerading as a government (I might contact Trading Standards soon). People haven't been abiding by rules because they haven't been made that clear. If you read the exchange between me and meerkat, where he tried to claim I was breaking rules when I wasn't would make it all too clear. His version of rules would have me and my little ones taking exercise in a town centre with lots of other people about, as opposed to a woods with very, very few people about.

May I begin by saying I’m in no way defending Cummings? It’s the actions of a dickhead who thinks the rules don’t apply to him.

The point I’m trying to make is that the fuckwittery of someone in the public eye doesn’t make people follow. When boris went off shaking everyone’s hand, we didn’t lemmingly follow did we? And so on. What Cummings does has no impact on me. If half a dozen people in my street decided to do what they please and flout the rules, would I pay more attention? Personally no but I bet there’s plenty who would.

Yep.

I am quite certain that a number of people who are restless about the lockdown will use this as an excuse to start disobeying the rules/guidelines because "if it's okay for him to do it it's okay for me".

The fact that so many MPs, and prominent ones at that, have leapt to defend his actions is incredibly dangerous for the Government in trying to get people to not do exactly what they have said is okay to do, and any other guidelines they now give. It is a big hit to integrity and trust.

It’s more impactful because he is a public figure, he is part of the government and he was in part responsible for the policy.

If the impact of people in a high profile position was so great then the behaviour of the Scottish advisor who went to her holiday home or of the fella from SAGE or let’s be honest here, Kyle Walker (who most Joe Public could name over Cummings) would have led to mass flouting of the rules.

As a PM, Blair. But Boris has time to change my mind.

As a person (to the extent you can tell) I think Blair’s problem was that he had a limited intellect but an absolute moral certainty he was right. That’s very dangerous in a leader (but perhaps forgivable in a person)

Boris appears to be Blair’s intellectual superior but is almost entirely amoral. That may make him a better equipped to be PM (time will tell), but makes him a particularly odious person.

What do you think?

Both have good guys and bad guys IMO

So I look at politics as a choice to be made on who is in each party at the time of the election and what their policies are. So i’ve Voted Labour and Tories over the last few elections.

But the parties have an ideological difference. That’s why (unless something bloody odd happens) I’ll vote labour. I favour their ideology, I think you do too, as you mentioned before?

Labour has its fair share of bad guys agreed but some good guys. Genuine people. I think Corbyn was one of them, a genuine guy, probably too genuine/naive for mainstream politics.

Whereas the tories basically don’t. If you are a senior Tory then you want money for big businesses and poor people and workers to go and fuck themselves. Ok they can put a nice suit on and smile And pretend to care, but that’s basically what the tories are about, treating people as part of the production line, a cog in the machine, not humans.

Anyway my point is forget about the people, what about the policies behind them, the ideas. Which of them do you favour?

In the last election the swing factor for me was Brexit. I said at the time That my ideal situation would be Boris in for a few months and then another election and he becomes the shortest lived PM.

I’m pretty centrist overall. I think I said before that economically I lean to the left and socially I lean to the right.

Tories appear to favour big business (and there is a lot of back slapping and palm greasing), but most of them genuinely believe that supporting business is the best way to deliver prosperity to ordinary people. Difficult to believe I know.

I'm not sure this line of trying to justify what he did and claim he did nothing wrong will be sustainable when it doesn't take much to counter that. Surely it would be better for him to admit a "grave error of judgement" ask for forgiveness and for BJ say that he's got confidence in him. That's a load of old bollocks as well but at least it doesn't fall to pieces straightaway.

Not sure that him telling off journalists who are door stepping him for not social distancing is a good look either.

There must be thousands of households across the land with one or more small children and in which an adult developed coronavirus symptoms. The advice given out in March was quite clear: in that situation everyone in the household should isolate for fourteen days. Those parents that went through a difficult time abiding by that rule are entitled to be livid about this.

As far as visiting parents, I've no problem with that. But the fact that he, and his wife, had symptoms makes it indefensible.

I'd not visited my own 90 year old dad for eight weeks. :-( I've now seen him three times in five days :-). Saw him on Tuesday and took him to Docs for a check up. Pulse below 50 but no cause for concern. Wednesday at 9am he phoned me to say Docs had been in touch and could he get to hospital because they wanted to fit a pacemaker. I drove over and took him onto the ward at Walsall Manor Hospital. The pace maker was fitted and he was eating a sandwich by lunchtime :-). Saw him today and all is fine. My sister (a Practice Nurse) and my brother-in-law have been visiting him throughout. It's keeping to common sense that's important - rules are too 'broad brush'.

If there is a smoking gun here, it's that he - and his wife - did this while he they were symptomatic, and that by doing so, he put his parents at risk. It'll also be interesting to know if they'd been tested and had had it confirmed at this point.

Nail Ferguson and Catherine Calderwood both had to resign in circumstances that were less serious and neither was symptomatic.

As Dougie has pointed out above, both Neil Ferguson and Catherine Calderwood had to resign for infringing the lockdown rules. Neither was symptomatic.

Ferguson's professional reputation has subsequently been impugned by the gutter press and the usual Confforum suspects, for no justifiable reason.

Cummings has not just broken the rules but has also done so while symptomatic. Along with his wife.

So what does 'Classic Dom' mean?

It’s a joke innit

If I can break it down for you it’s a parody of the red trouser brigade’s blanket assumption that Cummings is an omniscient political strategist who plays 3D chess and is always three moves ahead. That nothing he does is wrong. Which is transparently wrong in this case.

It’s like when Barra Dave shouts “Buller! Buller! Buller!” on his posts. It doesn’t mean he likes whatever it is he is commenting on, it is a satirical take on the ‘devil take the hindmost’ attitude of a certain type of Tory.

Look at Sickie’s reply. He calls him ‘Dom’ not to praise him, but to bury him.

Acting as a disruptor, this guy appears to have a degree of control over the direction of British politics that is entirely inconsistent with his status as an unelected advisor. And, IMHO, his influence is entirely bad.

Given the precedents, he deserves to be sacked here. Do you not agree?

It seems that Cummings has pissed off a lot of people in the party by centralising power at No 10. There are a lot of knives out for him. He may have to go.

Difficult for Boris though. I’m not sure he has an original idea in his head and certainly little grasp of how to implement things. Cummings seems to be the brains of the operation.
