The Daily Mail has run a campaign trying to see Dominic Cummings ejected from 10 Downing Street. This would come as a surprise to some given that Cummings was a powerful force to achieve Brexit, a cause espoused by the Daily Mail. However, the reason is that the Daily Mail decided that if they were to take their stance on Cummings, they could develop a daily hate which was one of Lord Northcliffe’s targets when he founded the Daily Mail perhaps one hundred years ago.
As a result, page after page of the Daily Mail has seen several of their top writers issuing tons of deceitful drivel. They have therefore degraded themselves along of course with their editor and the proprietor.
BBC TV news last night featured a BBC reporter, a Mark Easton, who put up twelve voters and asked those who agreed with the eject Cummings crew to put up their hands. About seven raised their hands. Easton was of course trying to show that a majority wanted Cummings ejected – and it was Easton who had selected the twelve!
I did not check the Channel 4 news since they are irredeemably committed to the Remain cause and therefore it is pointless for them to consider the truth relating to Cummings.
Over at the Labour Party Sir Keir Starmer said that he would sack Cummings. Well, there’s a surprise.
Elsewhere, lots of sillies have been squawking away. For instance, there are the forty Conservative MPs who feel that their majorities can be attacked and therefore they have dreamt up a basis (still not clear to me) whereby Cummings should go. Fortunately, so far, BoJo is standing his ground.
And then there are the bishops. There are so many silly bishops warbling out here that I see no point in listing them. However, I am reminded of Lord Hailsham’s view (of fifty+ years ago) that priests and politics should be kept apart. The reason is that priests simply are not up to the challenge of considering the difference between religious and political views.
Finally, in case they do not, readers ought to know that Cummings’ father, he of the north eastern farm, is a retired Lord Justice of Appeal. The chances of Cummings not having had first class advice are zero.
