Cummings has probably got so much dirt on the Cabinet they likely don’t know which way to turn.My goodness ... I've watched the Cummings rose garden fiasco and now watching Boris trying to justify the unjustifiable ..
Have they never heard the expression - When you get to the bottom of the hole, stop digging !
As a conservative (with a small c) I am just dumbfounded ! Unbelievable ...
This time yesterday, I felt extremely offended by the Prime Ministers cack-handed attempt to convince us all that Dominic Cummings wasn't such a bad chap after all. That his actions were understandable and reasonable.watching his press conference, title says it all
I remember many years ago sat in a hospital waiting room reading a very interesting essay in 'the Field' mourning the demise of the 'gentleman politician' one who had been about a bit, had a successful career and, in their retirement decide to put something back by standing for parliament.One of my gripes with all political parties these days is that they seem to be mainly consisting (and certainly led) by career politicians. I think, occasionally, that self preservation takes away from the altruistic elements that we would expect of those who seek to govern us and run the country on our behalf.
When I look back to some of the great politicians of the past (from all parties) I see people who often came into politics and national government after successful careers elsewhere, be it in the forces, from industry or from social occupations such as the Unions. Coming into Government to use the skills, beliefs and knowledge they had gained to make a difference ... yes there were some with flaws but compared to what we have on all sides these days.
