You’re right AY, I still think he is a positive in the government, but this action is beyond the pale. He will be a long term loss to Team Boris. The prick.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.
He probably had a cabinet office ID card or similar that gives privileges to some political figures. Either way his attitude stinks.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.
be quicker with the 21st century version of a NKVD troikaStrangely, if appropriately, 'slimeball' has become Word of the day. I entirely agree that Cummings, Campbell, Milne and their like are the puke in the bottom of the pint glass, but it seems that modern politicians are unable to fully carry out their functions without them; this is disturbing for a number of reasons. Politicians have civil servants to promulgate their decisions; spads should not have any role in that process, but they do. Politicians should have the intellect, principle and belief in their political direction to carry their arguments in a debating chamber, but they seem now to need more direction from spads than from their party or cabinet colleagues. Spads cost money, and I'm paying. Spads are unelected, but I'm paying. Spads can hide behind politicians, and are unaccountable, if vulnerable, and I'm paying.
Perhaps the time has come again for Triumvirates.
He's probably everything you and the Leftist* Press say he is, but he is effective. I loathe the brute, but I loathe the role he has in the system, rather than the man.Dominic cummings? I despise the arrogant prick. I'm struggling to comprehend why anyone on ARRSE feels the need to defend this smug, self-centered ****. Maybe someone could explain his positive attributes?
He'll be gone within the next seven days, if not then Boris is going down with him. I see Ruth Davidson absolutely caved him in a news article. I quite like Ruthie, a fearless defender of the Union. A little bit of war within the factions of the party I'm a member of, so very very interesting times. I disagree with Ruthie over the EU but the rest, well she's my kind of Conservative.And...
Yes of course that must be the reason.He probably had a cabinet office ID card or similar that gives privileges to some political figures. Either way his attitude stinks.
I am not defending Cummings, but I am most certainly attacking the press that are desperately trying to control events and being stymied by himDominic cummings? I despise the arrogant prick. I'm struggling to comprehend why anyone on ARRSE feels the need to defend this smug, self-centered ****. Maybe someone could explain his positive attributes?
