It does seem that way, doesn't it.He's untouchable. I would love to know what dirt he has on Boris. He basically owns the PM.
I mean, Philip Hammond lost his job as Chancellor and then was deselected as an MP less than 12 months later. Nobody seriously believes Boris was behind all that. Then, his successor as Chancellor was told to sack his aide or resign. The crime committed by the aide? Talking to a former aide of Hammond. Cummings asked to see her phone and when he saw messages from the former aide, he ordered a police officer to march her out of Downing St. As far as I can tell Boris had nothing to do with this, but this is his second-in-command being forced out by a guy who officially is no more than an adviser.It does seem that way, doesn't it.
Like that Scottish woman who went to her own second home, oh the humanity. People have lost the plot. I've gone to work 5 days a week as normal throughout this whole thing in a building with 60 other people in it and everyone is fine. But if I sit on a park bench or go sunbathing I'm suddenly a granny killer who hates the NHS. It's mass hysteria at this point.The way the media constantly jumps on these little things is pathetic. It just disregards all common sense in favour of such strict emphasis on breaking the rules It's pathetic that people like Piers Morgan take it seriously. So Dominic Cummings got in his car and drove to another house...so what? Is this meant to undermine the entire government position or something? Any normal person just thinks "alright, so he drove a bit further to stay in another safe house" but I despise this weasly, snide, snitching rat mentality that's come out in the country recently, driven by people like Piers Morgan.
Millions of people are out and about each week, many are going to work, people are exercising, everyone has to do shopping and so on. It's ridiculous to think that a guy getting in his car and driving from one property to another is some scandal. I don't even think it's an issue when that writer flew from New Zealand to Scotland and the fact that police had to go and interview him because of public pressure is pathetic, as was the pressure that Neil Ferguson faced.
How sad is it that Neil Ferguson can get his predictions wildly wrong and faces no criticism, yet he steps out of his house to see a girlfriend and is forced to quit? We lost our priorities and common sense somewhere, a long time ago.
I might have led a sheltered life but I've never heard that before.Cummings should go. The chief medical officer in Scotland quit when she broke the rules, Dr pantsdown quit when he got caught boffing that married woman.
The media should apply the same level of pressure here until he quits.
Fwiw, I didn't want the Scottish chief medical officer to quit. I think an apology and abiding by the rules would be better than making changes during a pandemic.
Now we have set the precedent though, and Cummings knew about it, then he has to go really. Plus he seems a properly horrible guy.
Boffing, to have casual, yet secretive sex.I might have led a sheltered life but I've never heard that before.
Of course it does. Cummings is the power behind the throne, he wields an enormous influence over the government and attends SAGE meetings.So Dominic Cummings got in his car and drove to another house...so what? Is this meant to undermine the entire government position or something?
My friend is working on a research study with both Remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine. The results don't differ much on either at this point.https://www.nejm.org/doi/pdf/10.1056/NEJMoa2007764
Remdesivir likely passes clinical trials by meeting primary outcome. Well, it's a relatively safe antiviral, but had the same death rates as the placebo. They said that the stock dropped slightly. The timing had to 100% be for a reason. Anyways, antivirals won't get us out of this pandemic. Populace isn't sufficiently educated or insured to think Remdesivir would be a game-changer. Not sure how the media will spin it.
