OH he's a lad, isn't he. When he worked for the Prime Minister everyone said he knew nothing. Now he's talking against the Prime Minister everyone thinks he speaks the truth.

Likewise there were CONS who thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread when he was Johnson's most trusted and closest advisor.

Who now because he's saying negatives re Johnson and the government are turning on him.

Frankly I never have and never will believe or trust any of the grouping of Johnson, his Ministers or Cummings.

Some Cons didn't even condemn the ridiculous Barnard Castle fairytale.
While at the time he was apparently Johnson's trusted, in full, advisor.

I have no idea of your personal view of him at all, I don't think to be fair to you, you said much at all.
However possibly any hypocrisy is on both sides.

Not as to myself, since I neither like or trust or believe Johnson or Cummings.

The only thing I may be possibly right on, was at the time of the Barnard Castle fairytale, which Johnson fully supported him on too unbelievably.

I said I felt Cummings knew too much politically possibly damaging against this PM, which if he was ever discarded, he would start to reveal publicly somehow.

…is there any hypocrisy or anything else …?…there are no more than a handful of posts and most of those are updates../…media stories….

…that doesn’t mean that there is ‘no truth’, it just means that he has no integrity when he was happy to be part of it all…less birds of a feather and more snakes of a slither….

That's fair.

I do as well, my position however is I think both he and Johnson are.

Cummings is just sly and untrustworthy. He has an undemocratic agenda, i wouldn't believe a word he says, so you can take it from that, i will be avoiding all nuggets that come out from today

To be honest, when he worked for the Gov, most people on here thought he had some serious dirt on the PM which was why there was not more made of his "Barnard Castle" jaunt.

He is a weasel

Default Dominic Cummings Live Weds. 9:30AM Parliament Committee

I was always under the impression that Cummings was a brilliant mind ... but not a politician now he keeps putting himself down literally saying ‘ I’m not a very smart guy ‘ and “I struggled to understand a lot of what was being discussed in the SAGE meetings “

All very strange ..

Analysis: Cummings' day of chaos is wrong - what else is too?


The most extraordinary part of Dominic Cummings' evidence so far has been his
colourful description of Downing Street disengaging from Covid on March 12 last year
because of a possible US bombing of Iraq and the PM's girlfriend going "crackers" about
a story in The Times about Dilyn the dog.

The only problem is that Cummings has got his dates wrong, writes Gordon Rayner.


The Dilyn the dog story actually appeared in the Times on March 11, the day before,
meaning the picture of chaos he paints cannot be right.

It's a serious accusation to level at his former colleagues, and a clear attempt to get
revenge on Ms Symonds, who he blames in part for his ousting last November.

For someone who rages about the media getting things wrong, shouldn't he have made
sure he got his facts straight about such an important point? He has had six months to
prepare for this moment, so nailing down dates with a quick Google search should have
been possible.
