Yep. 66% in this one in the Mail.

I think you underestimate just how to the right some of you lot are on here and willing to brush this aside just because you think heís pushing your hard Brexit, anti-press agenda. Thereís some very moderate Tory voters aghast at what he did and Johnsonís handling of the situations.

Oh if you read the Mail you're a Tory then.....It's a bleeding women's paper!.....I'm on the right and I wouldn't touch the rag with yours.

If you want to know who the Tories are they are the typical lot you find on this forum.

People have been unable to attend funerals and I havenít seen my parents in months just because heís BJís mate he gets preferential treatment itís outrageous.

Sack that toss pot.

He couldíve been testing he was fit to drive 260 miles without stopping by driving 30 miles from the farm and 30 miles back, but it was his wifeís birthday so it is very likely a reason. It isnít a sackable offence though, as it wasnít for Stephen Kinnock, Tahir Ali and the other half a dozen labour MPís that Starmer hasnít sacked but in his opinion Cummings should be. If they were then Cummings might have gone I reckon.

Disgusting is a slight exaggeration. You can call it other things but disgusting is lazy mouth frothing.

I never said that it's just a loony left issue....If made to characterise it I'd say it's more a remainer one.

However, most Tories regard this for what it is....a load of old codswallop.

The same point applies. The Mail was clearly pro brexit. If this was a Remainer only issue, the Mail wouldn't be using it as click bait.

Out of interest, what makes you think "most tories regarding this for a load of old codswallop"?

FYI: Yougov poll on whether he should resign:
Tories: 41% said he should resign, 43% said shouldn't, 17% don't know
Brexit voters: 45% said he should resign, 37% shouldn't, 18% don't know

I was more interested in Barnard Castle. It made a couple of appearances in the Rising of the Northern Earls, 1569/70 and I believe, The Pilgrimage of Grace prior to that (1536?). Must be a nice place to visit. If I was being a tw@t, I could just pop over and take a look, as I don't believe restrictions apply to people visiting from Ireland (I could be wrong). That would be one rule for one, one for another. Tripadvisor have suspended reviews.

I said if I were forced to characterise this I'd say it was mostly remainers.

I have already said that the Mail is a click and rage entity.....they bend with the wind and that's why they take the position they have.

As for polls, when the media have been shoving the same message down their throats for weeks now. The loosely aligned are much more likely to go with what they consider the popular opinion....Tory voters included.....but the stats show a slight majority against sacking him.

The more to the right they are the less likely they are to support sacking Cummings.

"Shoving the same message down their throats for weeks". This broke in the news 6 days ago.

Obviously the more to the right they are the less likely they are to sack him, he's a Tory advisor!

The assertion that this is just a few people trying to stir trouble (lefties, remainers or whoever else we want to try and blame this on) is palpably false. The majority of the population, the majority of brexit voters and an almost even split of Tory voters think he should resign.

As I said, if there was an apology and an admittance of guilt, fine. Instead, we get barefaced lies and assertions that "reasonable people" will agree this is a non issue. In reality people across the political spectrum disagree. All very depressing.
