It's got to be a joke ? Fake news ?

Sparklefizz Sat 06-Jun-20 18:41:28

It started as a joke and then silly people have retweeted it without checking their facts!!

BlueBelle Sat 06-Jun-20 18:43:43

Oh must be a joke surely not a very funny one though

paddyanne Sat 06-Jun-20 18:44:30

coming up for Lizzies Birthday list ...who knows if its true...I saw it on a political site .A site thats usually reliable .

Lilypops Sat 06-Jun-20 18:45:15

Surely not. , God bless us and save us Sir Dopey Cummings. Got to be fake news

Oopsminty Sat 06-Jun-20 18:45:33

Just some jolly japes. No truth in it whatsoever

Smileless2012 Sat 06-Jun-20 18:50:40

Well that's a reliefgrin

Whitewavemark2 Sat 06-Jun-20 18:51:33

The source was Cummings, there is no other source.

Also heard that Sir Digby Jones was suggesting that the country buys the Queen a new yacht. Must be the silly season.

MissAdventure Sat 06-Jun-20 19:06:08

My response is unrepeatable, too.

lemongrove Sat 06-Jun-20 19:19:58

Amazing what some people believe ( if they read it somewhere).

varian Sat 06-Jun-20 19:30:59

I can't imagine a Sir Dominic Cummings being able to deny he was part of the "elite"

So I'm guessing it is fake news.

However, if DC did get knighted, surely the next step would be a knighthood for his boss, "Sir" Vladimir Putin.

ladymuck Sat 06-Jun-20 20:09:09

Someone probably started the rumour to see what the reaction would be.

Lucca Sat 06-Jun-20 20:11:03

Not knighted. Benighted.

Sparklefizz Sat 06-Jun-20 20:43:39

This is FAKE NEWS!!! Paddyanne should not have begun spreading it without checking facts.

vampirequeen Sun 07-Jun-20 09:35:31

Fake but very plausible. I can understand the mistake.

Callistemon Sun 07-Jun-20 10:23:27

Not without the Queen's permission paddyanne

You may loathe the Royal Family but they come in useful sometimes and I think she has her ear to the ground more than Boris does.

At least this fake rumour will keep some people happily spitting feathers for a bit.

And just like the false "Dominic Cummings' son is autistic" it will probably be repeated as fact by some. Even Boris Johnson isn't quite that deranged.

silverlining48 Sun 07-Jun-20 13:23:44

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha....but on the other hand nothing would surprise me where our PM and his cronies are concerned.

Paddyanne and a few others on here are never ones to let facts stand in the way of what they consider to be a a good story.
