Nobody wants you to descend to anything. You could though rise to the challenge, rather than pretend it doesn't exist.

The picture that is created by your description of your Zoom meeting with your "cronies" is an unkind one. It reminds me of the witches in Macbeth chanting incarnations of destiny around a pot. Although in your case that will be a computer screen.

I am sure the witches enjoyed their black visions. I hope you do too.

You truly have zero respect for anyone’s point of view save your own. You can wrap insults in whatever amount of cotton wool you choose, but at the end of the day they are still insults. It is little wonder there are very few if any that support you on here.

It has nothing to do with us all being stupid.

It has everything to do with the way a representative democracy is intended to work. We delegate the decisions to our MPs. Not to faceless ad men who have the PM's ear.

How do you know that?

You are assuming that Cummings used Boris as a puppet but you can't possibly know that.

Boris is a big picture man (one of his strengths and faults) he might say to Cummings we need to reform the Civil Service give me some ideas. Cummings comes up with a shopping list and Boris picks what he likes from that, I see nothing wrong in that nor does it conflict with our democracy.

You are assuming that rather than Boris asking for ideas Cummings tells him what to do.

There is a disparity amongst various bodies as to the actual "R Rate" which of course varies from area to area.

One's brow can be crinkled with perplexity perusing the plethora of differing statistics.

Indeed, I believe it is termed "paralysis through analysis". I get all of the other posters points about being caring, or letting people die through herd immunity.
The worry is, once the ill and elderly die, the virus spread is likely to be unchecked through asymptomatic (young) persons, and then the real risk of the virus mutating to impact the younger, fitter populace.
While people are still being slightly reckless (such as BJ and Cummings and a lot of other idiots), it puts all of the population at increased risk.
Interesting to note Scottish Teaching Unions are being balloted to see if teaching staff feel the risk of working with young asymptomatic people is 'acceptable' for a return to work.

Jolly well done.

Someone on here once said that arguing with WE is like arguing with porridge.

Did he mean that his arguments were constantly shifting with no firmness? I'm not truly sure.....maybe he just didn't like porridge.

Regardless, after being on here for ages I can certainly say that that poster certainly knew his oats.

Rubbish. I have loads of respect for other views. Even for the odd one or two to be found on here although not for the majority in this odd pocket of off-centre opinion. Anyone stumbling by accident on here would find it seriously weird. Not though those who are at home in that pocket will ever realise that. I have quite enough pms from folk who like my perseverance to feel my contributions don't go unappreciated.

Sometimes sarcasm is the most appropriate response to witless bluster.

Would that be a top hat or a bowler?

Or are they reserved for Rees Mogg and/or Stirly-Wirly?

I bet it isn't cloth hat or a hoodie!

In the interests of HOL, let's not turn this into a "WE Thread". We all remember those dastardly "Willo threads" which resulted in me receiving a 'Yellow' for being an "Attention seeker" etc etc. Discussions which disintegrated into acrimony and ordure.

Returning to Cummings, I applaud him for the part he played in the 'Vote Leave' and the 'General Election' campaigns.He is a brilliant campaigner.

In terms of the Cabinet I do envisage a reshuffle at the beginning of the year.One hopes it is filled with the strongest ministers rather than those who are compliant towards the PM.There are some experienced Ex-Cabinet minsters on the backbenches who might well return.

This is very unlikely. Flu is a comparative coronavirus and almost exclusively kills old and/or people with underlying health conditions, and has always done so.
