I have plagiarised the excellent Marina Hyde’s headlines this morning, because she encapsulates in that headline exactly the conclusion I have arrived that has become clear over the past year.
“This week the various plans have been unfolded by mastermind Cummings which include
The governments wish to illegally override the brexit deal by claiming that it didn’t understand what it was signing up to at the time.
At the same time that same government will have you believe that it can pull off the most sophisticated testing programme on the entire planet. Matt Hancock is to preside over a hyperfunctional system for carrying out 10 million tests a day using technology that hadn’t yet been invented.L”
“Back in January Cummings claimed that there are a trillion dollars lying in the street, if you ran the government properly“.
He of course, convinced of his truly exceptional gifts is the one to do it.
The question is therefore - how is he doing? So far, not so good . It is certainly at best a work in progress.
“This week he was trillioning again, writing to the department of culture to inform them that the government want to build trillion dollar tech companies in the U.K.
Most people would settle to be able to get a test within 309 miles of their home”
“But no matter how much of a shitshow this government makes of the pandemic or Brexit, there are people even now willing to agree that every cock up or exploding gambit is a sign of the genius tactics of our wishers and betters“
So the brexit debacle, the testing debacle, the exam debacle, the PPE debacle, the highest death toll in Europe all down to statecraft apparently.
I prefer my original thought.
The Tories big trick has been a massive con.
