  1. He broke the lockdown rules which he helped put in place. Doesn't matter what make of car he has. If it was OK for him to travel why did government ministers appear on TV telling us that it was an instruction to stay at home? His actions are indefensible and if he had an ounce of decency he would resign. But this is Dominic Cummings and without him Johnson would be lost so he will no doubt get away with it. A classic case of Johnson and his mates telling the rest of us to "do as we say not as we do". Totally and utterly indefensible.

  2. and ultimately the guy in charge of all this is the Prime Minister Boris Johnson - remember him? When Cummings went off to the other end of the country taking the virus with him, Boris Johnson was still working from Downing Street. It’s inconceivable that he didn’t know where his right arm was. Hes the next in line.

  3. So you believe Cummings was well within his rights to ignore the policy he helped write and travel the length of the country with family members infected with this killer disease?

  10. He's made Johnson look like a stammering idiot two weeks running at PMQs. Boris can't cope without the braying farmyard animals to drown out the opposition, just like Priti Vacant can't feel empathy and Matt Hancock looks like he is shitting himself when he's facing the press instead of the invisible PM. And all the while, the working class Tories are saying "4 legs good, 2 legs better" as they watch Boxer go to the glue factory.

  11. Todays " Sunday Observer " is scathing on the issue or Cummings, Johnson and their cronies. " This is not just Westminster tittle tattle. It goes to the heart of the governments pandemic response. Ministers have set clear guidelines that it has asked all citizens to abide by to protect the NHS and limit deaths. Those guidelines include instructions that anyone in a household where someone has the symptoms of Covid-19 should not leave their house for 14 days. Millions have complied with this guidance at huge personal cost. A young boy died without his mother by his side; people have b

  12. Couple of things that jump out to me: 1) Matt Hancock the Health Minister has come out in support of 'Dom', undermining all the advice he's been giving throughout this crisis. Who advised the Health Minister to tweet his support for Cummings? Thats just amateurish, you let Gove and Sunak do that, not the bleeding Health Minister. 2) Kier Starmer hasn't said a word that I know of and why would he? The Tories are doing a great job of destroying themselves

  18. I always try to make a point if treating people with respect, even if I believe they're a gobshite, its served me extremely well over the years. Cummings treats most people with disrespect, he's a bully and arsehole by all accounts. This morning we see the likes of Steve Baker from ERG and several other Tory back benchers wade in to help give him a kicking. I wonder, as Cummings munches of his avocado on rye, if he wishes he'd been a bit more respectful when dealing with these elected members.

  19. For goodness’ sake Chaddy! He drove 260 miles with symptoms, in a car with children. He had friends and family in London that could have helped him out. He’s also since been outed as having been there twice! A sage scientist that had been caught breaking the lockdown rules resigned. So, Cummings by rights, should have been sacked. He helped create the lockdown rules and doesn’t even abide by them himself. You can’t defend the indefensible.

  21. The question is, could he and his family travel to Durham without refuelling? Assuming they went by car, they probably had to stop somewhere, refuel, stretch their legs and go to the toilet. That would theoretically expose others at the motorway services. If they went by train, then they definitely exposed others. Therefore it is likely Cummings broke the rules and risked spreading the virus like the other figures who have resigned. Of course the Tories will not sack him as they have different rules for their friends, and their voters will seek to make excuses on message boards. Only scie

  22. The thing is we are both the same in that we are big football fans and obviously want it back as soon as it is possible. The problem is you seem to be unable to see past that desire in terms of using any flawed and one sided logic to support that desire. For example thousands of tests for non key workers playing football you staunchly defend because it helps to get back football, whereas one solitary test for another non key worker who you despise outrages you. You use all of the countries who have or plan to restart their leagues as a precedent to support your desperation to get football back

  23. It’s a political decision by Starmer. He wants to give no opportunity for the Conservatives to blame Labour for not accepting the referendum result. He’s decided to let them sink on the impossibility of getting any sort of sensible deal by December. He can just sit on the sidelines and be able to say that he has taken them at their word that they can get this deal done.

  24. Starmer has played a blinder here. Just let the Tories damage themselves, so he can say (15mins ago): 'If I were Prime Minister, I'd have sacked Dominic Cummings.'

  26. The whole caring father thing is just spin, to obfuscate the truth: Cummings and those of his ilk believe the rules are for the plebs to follow. In the extremely improbable event that both he and his wife were incapacitated, with their wealth and privilege it would've been a minor matter to have their son collected and cared for by relatives He preferred to be in Durham, so rules be damned. The plebs? Let them eat cake.

  30. If Rovers have had no positive tests so far I don't see a problem with them announcing the fact. I'm sure you'd have been absolutely cock a hoop if we'd announced 2 or 3 positive tests as you'd be citing it as evidence it was too early for football to restart. If you meant it's surprising we didn't have any positive tests, again this isn't that surprising as only 0.8% tested positive in the Premier League round of tests so only a handful of Clubs will record any positive tests. As regards the Bundesliga, it seems to have gone relatively well, the standard has been good and to my mind

  38. So, you're child is probably asymptomatic because both parents are Covid positive, and you want the grandparents to step in when they are the most vulnerable in society? Bonkers and goes against all rules. Why not just agree with the world Chaddy and admit Cummings is a shyte who thinks he's superior to you and I.? Don't understand you.

  43. Actually it isn't. Democracy is a system of government by the whole population or all eligible members of state, typically through elected representatives. (Well Google puts it that way, more concisely than I would.) The right to have an opinion is called free speech. Now, as I have explained numerous times before, that means that whilst you can say whatever you like that: 1) does not make it a valid opinion, or means it needs to be treated as unchallengeable (remember the moon is made of cheese example?) 2) does not make that opinion morally correct (remember the racism examp

  47. Absolutely. Rochina gets referred to derisively here as a "Carlos Kickaball" but there's no doubt the guy had talent. When he had a run in the Championship. his output was decent, and teams would double-mark him, freeing up space for other players. Think he suffered from playing under too many conservative managers.

  49. A superb film from the early 90's - City of God - subtitled in Portuguese. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0317248/ I put of watching it for years due to the subtitles, but wish I hadn't, great film. Ps - I watched season 1 episode 1 of Top Boy on Tuesday night, that could have done with subtitles, couldn't understand a word of it - But its got me interested, appreciate the heads up.
