Y'all can't possibly have missed this.

"It is sad to see the PM and his office fall so far below the standards of competence and integrity the country deserves."

I feel a little bad that I want both sides not only to lose, but to lose after a horribly protracted battle that massively damages both.

Mate, I've put an order in for 23 bags of popcorn. I cannot wait for the chaos this is going to stir up. I only wish I could be close by with a mahoosive wooden spoon and a good supply of eye of newt.

For clarity, I don't feel bad for those c.nts.

I should go to Schadenfreude R Us to click 'n collect a bulk order but I think they'll be closing by now.

FYI I know I misspelled his name in the title, but the funny thing is I don't care he doesn't deserve to have his name spelled right.

I hope Johnson lands some blows on Cummings - because that says a lot about the judgement of those who put him near the leavers of power (Gove and Johnson)

To say nothing about his lying to the nation - which Johnson was fine with.

I like the way he sounds like a kid who thinks letting the headteacher scroll through his phone will sort everything out...
I am happy to meet with the Cabinet Secretary and for him to search my phone for Dyson messages. If the PM did send them to me, as he is claiming, then he will be able to show the Cabinet Secretary on his own phone when they were sent to me. It will therefore be easy to establish at least if I was ever sent these messages.
...as opposed to someone who worked for an organisation with a sophisticated security apparatus that could probably take control of his phone, take photos of his face, and record his groanings, in real time as he composes Whatsapp messages on the toilet.

I mean, if I was going to send compromising messages, I certainly would think about a cheap PAYG phone with a throwaway email address and I guess, no sim card (I think you need credit cards for that). I guess it'd still be pretty traceable, but would need a bit more effort.

Thing is, Cummings *knew* that Boris was corrupt and incompetent before he lied & (allegedly) misused funds in order to help get him elected.

The very sad thing is that Boris' corruption and supreme lack of competence was very widely known before the election, yet people still voted for him in huge numbers.

Yes, in any rational world, any attacks on the other would be also shooting themselves in the foot. I do actually think even Gove would be an improvement though.

The cover of The Mail.

This must be a joint Cummings/Gove operation. Who else has the influence to get The Mail to attack a Tory PM?
What ever happened to that Trump guy, you know, the one who was president for a bit?

Hi philbo,

More depressingly since the election, despite his corruption and lack of competence being proven almost daily during the pandemic at the cost of tens of billions and over 100,000 lives somehow his government now has a ~20% lead in the polls all against a back-drop of the Remainers' "Project Fear" rapidly turning into "Project Sad Reality" with EU trade falling off a cliff, non-EU trade negotiations going badly and NI literally on fire.

At which you point you begin to wonder if half the public are living in some sort of parallel universe?
It's meta, so it is allowed.

I wonder if, in the course of this spat, details will be revealed about the role of certain "leading scientists" in persuading Boris to delay an autumn lockdown?

Its a sign of how secure they are. The agenda gets taken over by infighting when they don't fear an external foe.

Yes, but also Gove is surely making a move - he has to be behind this.

I'm half expecting a parody video with surprisingly high production values to (with a certain amount of paid spread) go viral.. "All you need is Gove"
