The Dominic Cummings Appreciation Society.

Jess Phillips has just told someonone with sepsis to "get over it". Contrast and compare the news coverage.

Edit: She said she "coped"

Stupidity, arrogance, and thinking you're above the law, it's not a good look
Perhaps he wasn't thinking of anything except what would be best for his family at the time?
 
This. Even though he technically did nothing wrong, he's supposed to be media-savvy.
I completely agree with this. From his employers point of view, he’s supposed to be behind the story, not the star of it.

The Prime Minister has enough problems keeping the flock in line without having to worry about the paid help taking all the attention.

If Boris keeps him on now, I’d be wondering what has Dominic got that they want to keep hidden?!

His blog is pretty interesting. Seems determined to make government of either colour more data driven and to actually use “lessons learned”.

His blog

You can see why CS may not be aligned!

Bit of a twat mistake but even the BBC appeared to bat for him against a SNP geezer this morning.

This is the perfect thread for @wetsmonkey . Get him here and he can stop derailing every other thread he posts on. This one should keep him happy long enough!

Do you have a link, for context?
 
I cannot comprehend how anyone can call out a machiavellian puke like Alastair Campbell for the absolute shit that he is and yet fail to acknowledge or even recognise that Cummings is cut from the same bolt of cloth.

My bold. This is key.

BOOM! Bullseye.
 
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.
Time of the month?.
 
You want more ‘grr’ ok. My father in law died recently my children cannot attend his funeral because they are staying within the rules of the lockdown. Cummings sods off to Durham 260 miles each way to deal with child care so what he says is bollocks to you lot I am doing what I want but you have got to stay locked down I say give him a blood angel in Parliament Square to show that the lockdown Is serious.

Enough ‘grrr’?
How awful for you.

Still the fact that neither Mr Cummings nor his family were charged with anything illegal should help you realise we're all in this together.

as per the thread title, I’m now beginning to appreciate that he might be a bit of an arrogant prick. The prick.

I can!

For people like them it’s the nature of the beast. The blend of politics that each one does is almost, but not quite, incidental to what they do!

Like the people who got tickets for standing 3 feet from each other.
 
It's all been rather well played. First reveal that he travelled to Durham, leading to numerous cabinet ministers speaking out in defence of him all day. Then reveal he went twice, three times - making said ministers look like twats.

I think he's a twat and he's been played at his own game by another of his ilk. Milne perhaps?

I doubt many would disagree with the description of DC as an arrogant prick, even Dominic himself!

Doesn't make this any less of a witch hunt.
