#dominicsgoing is trending on twitter, i think hes fucked, but equally, maybe yr right. I hope not tho, hes surely gotta go, otherwise a lotta credibility lost
 
it looks bad but I think many british people fully accept that their rulers do what they like. I’m not sure the public will care as much as the papers are making out, and we know that inner circle don’t dive a fuck about the rest of the party, the media, the opposition etc

yeah, true, plus the amount of 'normal' people also flouting the rules, cos they make no sense at the moemnt.

every statesman who has ruled in the way he has done will inevitably suffer a dramatic fall from grace, i just didn't think it would be so soon. he clearly has been less effectual on coronavirus as compared to brexit, perhaps just a general underestimation of the problem/lack of clarity on what he was dealing with.

i heard his voice for the first time, watching one of the video reports, and he sounds inhuman

He deserves a facial tattoo like Manson. “Get Brexit Done”, right across the domed forehead, then force marched to a work camp for a few year’s worth of hard, indiscriminate penance.

I disagree with this. Think of the expenses scandal. There's an enormous amount of anger out there and this is a bit of lightening rod for it all. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

"Events' dear boy, events" as the saying goes. I hope it does him and whatever shit they're up to behind the scenes as much damage as possible.

Well it looks like he's got away with it for the time being, the journos were rubbish apart from that one ginger guy who kept it as one quick question. Good to see Boris squirm a bit but he's sticking to his script.

1) Cummings has dirt on Boris and co.
2) Cummings does all the work and they're terrified of being without him.
3) The Republican-esque strategy they're following of refusing to accept anything they don't like falls apart if they give in to the press.
4) They're incapable of shame.
5) Perhaps all of the above?

In some ways the worst thing for the government is if drags on for a few days and then he still has to resign. Clearly that ought to happen as he said nothing substantial to change the narrative and some of it (driving to test the eyesight) was a clear lie.

yeah, gotta believe he knows where all the bodies are buried. that's some pretty good insurance.

I think Cummings is fucked surely? The Mail has a headline telling him pretty much to fuck off.
I almost see it as more likely that in a few months we'll have a new PM but Cummings will still be in place. Even if he has to be sacked from this particular role to satisfy public outcry they'll just invent another, basically equivalent job for him. That seems to be what 'sacking' amounts to these days.

I'm surprised they haven't done that already... just fired him and got his advice via phone or whatever. Surely it's not worth him being the story for so long when they could do that.

I wonder what's not being covered whilst Dom takes the spotlight. It's a great opportunity to bury bad news.

I think this is a good encapsulation of everything, I feel like there's a lot of strands going on. Someone could make a decent long read or 6 part series out of it.
