The Dominic Cummings Appreciation Society.

Checking out Facebook the other day and I came across someone I knew from many years ago. I had a look at their page and was deciding whether to message them just to say hi for old times sake when I noticed that he was a member of a Facebook page called The Dominic Cummings Appreciation Society.

I straightaway thought, wow we’re missing out on arrse! Love Dominic or Hate him, Dominic is the man at the moment!

He’s unelected and yet appears all powerful. He turns up everywhere. If I was going up the pub tonight which I can’t because it’s not open, but if I could, I’d half expect Dominic to be stood in the corner by the bar keeping a watchful eye and an omni directional ear constantly surveying everything and taking secretive notes on his clipboard.

His dress sense marks him out as a person with exceptional power and influence. It takes someone with ultimate power over everyone around them to turn up every day in the presence of a room full of the most powerful in the land where they are decked out and marked out by their power dressing, their expensive watches or bracelets, their immaculate manicures and haircuts or hairdo’s, their exquisite manners and feigned lofty deference to those around them who are not actually sat at the top table and yet, every one of them keeping an eye through an occasional disguised glance at the geezer nonchalantly sat in the corner dressed in an open neck shirt, his crew necked jumper loosely tied around his neck and his chinos half ironed with semi casual footwear completing the effect of saying to those great and the good in his presence. Go on! Cross me! I dare you! I’ll have you escorted out of the building by an armed copper!

So, what do you think! Are you a fan or are you a hater?

This is the place to pass on your opinions and your news about the Prime Ministers Chief Advisor. Is he doing a great job or a bad job. Is he a genius or a chump. What would you do differently? Is he going to be there forever or has Boris got his card marked? Would it just make more sense if he shoved Boris to one side and stopped pretending to be 2ic when he’s really Sunray?

Tell arrse everything! Keep it legal, don’t libel or defame him but do include the warts where you can or alternatively, tell how great and good he is and why! What do you think his plans are to make this great nation even greater! A humble genius or an evil doer with a hidden agenda.

Edit. Edit. Edit.

@Helm has just asked me if the thread is going the way I want it to go. The answer is a resounding yes. My politics are known on the site but this isn’t an attempt to knock Cummings or some insidious plan to dig something up on him.

Cummings is a very significant political player and there’s no doubt he’s also very controversial because of where he is, what he does and how he does it.

His ideas and his influence are bound to effect us all in one way or another at some point. I’m saying, what do you think! I’m not demanding to tell you what I think!

To many people, me included, he’s a bit of a mystery man. Let’s see if we can make his ears burn a little bit, in a nice way if you like, in our debate.

So once again!

Tell arrse everything! Keep it legal, don’t libel or defame him but do include the warts where you can or alternatively, tell how great and good he is and why! What do you think his plans are to make this great nation even greater! A humble genius or an evil doer with a hidden agenda.

Go for it!!!

My immediate thoughts are:

1. Insofar as there is a precedent, it's Alastair Campbell.
2. Whatever the shortcomings of Johnson and Cummings, they've successfully sh1tcanned everyone you support; consistently and over an extended period.
 
I reckon he'll make a convenient scapegoat after all this to take the heat off the government, which may he his intention all along anyway
 
He appears to be a man who can get things done and is not afraid to accept, implement or innovate change.

In a world where many are sheep and adopt the mantra “if I do nothing, I can do no wrong”, you need people like him.

We haven’t seen much of him lately, its not even been confirmed if he has/had cv19. I suspect he knows this isn’t his fight and is leaving it to those best to deal with it. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that he is plotting something. No doubt there will be a shitstorm after the current crisis and his skills will be required again to steer Boris through that.
 
...and Seumas Milne...and Jon Lansman...seems there's no real shortage.
So is the OP thinking of starting some other threads along these lines?

One of the positives he brings to the table is the ability to drive people of a certain viewpoint to start chewing the carpet.

Top man.

One of the big question marks raised by the current emergency is whether the Public Sector is fit for purpose and Cummings was already asking that question before we got slimed by the Chinese.

I agree that, as unelected individual, he doesn't have a mandate to be a leader in the current crisis, but I suspect that chunks of the NHS, the Civil Service and Academia may well be feeling the love in the not too distant future and that he will be Johnson's vehicle of choice.

He's probably streets ahead of that slimeball Campbell, a man who by his manipulations took this nation to war and got many fime British service people killed and not to mention the very ver strange death of Dr David Kelly.

Cummings has intelligence and a feel for what is going on unlike others such as the above.

I suspect his target aquisition skills are honed and top notch. Some people in Whitehall don't realise they are in the target zone. I do wonder if he helped Pritti in dispatching Rutnam the incompetant from the Home Office, one notes his civil service master found no case to answer against Pritti.
 
Looking at Seumas Milne's background compared to Cummings, Cummings us the perfect foil to Milne.
Everything Milne seems to think he represents, and wants to represent, - the ordinary working prole needing freeing from the rule of privileged elites - well doesn't Cummings fit that description?

I reckon Cummings would beat the shit out of Milne in a scrap too.
 
If you are a mediocre performing but first or second tier civil servant.
Dom looks like the man employed to give the “ do you know what nemesis means “ speech.
I wouldn’t like to piss him off.

The uproar when the media found out he was attending Covid government meeting tells you all you need to know what his opponents think and fear , doing ok in my book

OP going the way you expected is it? I'm not sure what your faux outrage is for I really don't, as mentioned there have been plenty of others similar to him. It's a Boris thing isn't it, as I said earlier he's the new Maggie and that in my book is a good thing.

Having a communist telling us about the failings of the most popular government since Churchill.
The thread is bound to be a doozy, like all the others we take your beloved socialist icons apart on.
You thick socialist halfwit.

Your complete ignorance of any politics to the left of Gengis Khan is extremely well illustrated by your accusation that I’m a communist.

Socialism is Communism without the violence (at first).
What part of the left's ideology don't you understand?

You seem a bit excitable this evening.
