Last seen scuttling like a rat out of Downing Street.

I agree with the snetiments expressed here, he has no place in government. Not elected and only wanted by a prime minister who is not fit for purpose (even when well!)

The effect of COVID-19 on the UK would probably have been less severe had Brexit not taken place. The statistics should give factors per million people then we could see just how we are doing.

I refuse to be gaslighted by politicians. Not that DC is a politician but since he runs the country...

No gagajo we're not all doomed until he tells us were doomed.
Play the game wink

GagaJo Sat 25-Apr-20 09:58:55

I did read that he'd had IT. I'm not sure if I believe the account that I read though. It was on a dodgy site and the description was a bit iffy.

Yes May7. Finger in every pie. I don't really care at the moment. We're going to hell in a handbasket and I've reached the 'We're all doomed.' stage.

In answer to the OP
We now know where he is dont we??

Hes observing quietly sitting in on SAGE meetings

That sounds most appropriate May7.

Fiachna50 Mon 20-Apr-20 03:25:32

Who cares.

May7 Mon 20-Apr-20 00:25:25

Well your predictions may be right Sirchenjin and annodomini but maybe Thursday 21st May (Ascension day) may be a more appropriate date following on from the Easter Sunday release date. Or is that a tad too cynicalconfused

dominic cummings' uncle died of covid-19 a few days after he was seen scuttling away from downing street.

i had met him, sir john laws, many years ago and was sad to read this. i knew his wife.

Anyway, this is what Larry has to say about Cobra meetings ...

growstuff Sun 19-Apr-20 22:24:57

No, no, no ... Larry (the Downing Street cat) is just advising … he's taken over.

SirChenjin Sun 19-Apr-20 19:28:42

I like to think that since his brush with death Boris has had an epiphany, has replaced Cummings and his skateboard, and is now being advised by the Downing St cat.

growstuff Sun 19-Apr-20 19:23:57

Ready to advise Boris? Isn't that the same as being "Senior Whitehall Source"?

I'm clutching at nowt, hun! wink

Grannmarie Sun 19-Apr-20 19:09:17

Has anyone watched Brexit: An uncivil war on Netflix?

Benedict Cumberbatch plays a chilling Dominic Cummings.

Interesting viewing.

vegansrock Sun 19-Apr-20 19:07:11

Boris needs advising? Who knew?

SirChenjin Sun 19-Apr-20 18:59:56

grin @ advising Boris. You’re clutching at a far bigger straw there Urm.

Urmstongran Sun 19-Apr-20 18:27:01

growstuff clutching at straws!

Cummings has been ill. He’s back at work GagaJo it was in all the papers on Thursday.

He’ll be getting up to speed.
Ready to advise Boris.

😊

Angela Merkel doing something sensible by infuriating Bejing! Sounds just the ticket!!!!!!

SirChenjin Sun 19-Apr-20 17:35:54

growstuff - excellent post, you’ve got it in one!

Whitewavemark2 Sun 19-Apr-20 16:52:44

growstuff so true

annodomini Sun 19-Apr-20 16:48:29

If the PM wants to make an 'entrance'. May 8th is VE day and a special bank holiday. He could be on his feet by that time.

growstuff Sun 19-Apr-20 16:30:02

SirChenjin I was reading an article this morning about the tactics of populists. Apparently, "poor me" is the second stage of the process, so you could be right. Hair more ruffled than usual, unshaven, clothes and tie crumpled - wouldn't mind betting he'll appear in a briefing very soon and tell everybody how he's so grateful for the heroic NHS. They'll all want to be heroes to please the Glorious Leader, so will step forward to treat everybody wearing nothing at all.

Cummings meanwhile will look scruffier than normal (with his butt hanging out of his trousers) in the hope that his appearance will distract from his dastardly plans and role as a "Senior Whitehall Source".

Meanwhile, Angela Merkel will raise an eyebrow and do something sensible.

Whitewavemark2 Sun 19-Apr-20 16:27:46

What a horrible little squirt he is.

growstuff Sun 19-Apr-20 16:21:56

I think he's already reappeared, but has changed his name to "Senior Whitehall Source". His first little job is to smear Whitty and Vallance.
