Good old Dom eh? Setting the record straight, out of the goodness of his tiny, shrivelled, black heart. He just wishes to shine the beacon of truth into the darkest recesses of Conservative greed and ineptitude without reward or personal gain.

<sarcasm>Gosh, how he's changed. How lucky we are to have him on our side.</sarcasm>

I'm still trying to work out exactly what his Machiavellian game is, and who does gain from it, other than himself, obviously. My guess would be Gove, plus the opportunity of a statesmanlike departure for Johnson while Hancock is scapegoated for the entire debacle.

I must admit, I sort of chuckled at the irony of Hanbdjob appearing before the house today, and lying about not lying. "I've been straight with people in public and in private throughout," he said.

Other hilarious one-liners from Handjob included "We've taken an approach of openness and transparency and spoke of what we do and don't know." and "Sometimes what we've had to say hasn't been easy. We've had to level with people when it's been tough when things have been going in the wrong direction".

How do you know when Handjob's lying? His lips move. Same with Cummings

I came to a odd thought when the death toll raised at care homes, the government death to increase and thus no more pension or health care, and no protection needed for staff like my niece and sister. Who paid crap wages, like staff in shops, paid min money, for long hours and 40 yrs experience. In pharmacy work and a front line work group.
This world is just me me me oh money me me me, and with money backed by banks and country you have corrupt power.
This Cumming's nerd broke the rules a long time ago ask yourself he still belongs to the corrupt upper glass power morons.
Line them up and shot the lots start with a clean sheet. Put goldfish in charge they can mouth of and still say nothing but do not have wallets. And short term memories so they will never keep a promise either.

After ploughing through as much of the online Cummings' interview as I could bear. It all seems most bizzare and I would go along with Mr Slinger. That it smells like a dose of 'controlled opposition' plus the odd shock revelation.

Everyone's talking about "the" wedding, and the new £200M"Royal Yacht," when we can't even (be arsed to) feed our schoolchildren.

They must be trying to hide something fucking massive to chuck all that lot at the news in one go.

Indeed the news this week has been surreal what with Jilted Dom, now the wedding and Bumfaces Brexit Yacht it's just unreal. any form of criticism, from whatever quarter on whatever subject just seems to get squished on the windshield of the Tory Brexit juggernaut. This week we've seen them mark their own homework on redecorating, assigning PPE contracts and Islamophobia, and bugger me if they didn't all get get a gold star, with only Hancock getting a mild warning that if you do that again you'll have to see me later from the teacher.

Perhaps they are not hiding anything, maybe they are celebrating the inauguration of a one party state. Painting Town Halls blue anyone?
