Noeuf Sat 23-May-20 23:29:02

PMK

E- mailed Derek Thomas my MP so far have just had an automated reply asking me if I lived in his constituency hmm

This won't die down imo. For once they have pushed the public too far.
The actions were bad enough. But to defend them was irresponsible.

To then say everyone of the reports about him breaking rules after this are false is probably political suicide.

They can't pretend doesn't exist. Too many people have lost their livlijoods following the rules to just shrug and say "oh well"

Shamelessly place marking so that I can catch up tomorrow.

Have you seen the mail on Sunday headline. Boris is getting desperate now!

Going by twitter revelations he’s been seen in Durham on 10th May as well...

Just keeps giving and giving.

There’s no way the journos on this haven’t followed up all these Twitter leads...can’t wait to see what they reveal tomorrow.

Sadly, I don’t think he’ll resign, or that it’ll be anyone’s downfall, but today has been great, at least.

#10 now accusing Guardian and Mirror of fake news. Straight out of the Trump playbook.

Missed the news all weekend. Placemarking to keep abreast of what is going on.

HauntedHats Sun 24-May-20 01:32:33

I don't believe either of them were ill.

LarkDescending Sun 24-May-20 02:44:34

Well I for one am looking forward to Pippa Crerar’s review of the papers on the Andrew Marr show.

PerkingFaintly Sun 24-May-20 06:49:42

honestly I don't see what else he should have done in the circumstances

This was a particularly amusing post on the previous thread, given the recent whining that UK teachers aren't being "innovative" enough, and given Dom's supposed cleverness and yen for innovation.

It's highlighted that Dom can't innovate his way out of a paper bag, given his only solution was "Go home to mummy."

Families up and down the land, many without the benefit of an Oxbridge education, are being both creative and brave about coping in much more challenging circumstances than the Cummings.

Looking forward to the andrew marr show this morning. Grant has the short straw again i believe.

NotJustACigar Sun 24-May-20 07:17:25

The BBC's roundup of the newspaper headlines is good but is strangely missing the Mail on Sunday. www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-the-papers-52786472

I have to say I don't agree with the Mirror saying that BJ is clinging on to DC either because he has no backbone OR because he cares not a jot about the British people. Surely it's both?!

frumpety Sun 24-May-20 07:33:34

PR chap on Sky news trying the its politically motivated by Brexit haters slant, tapping back into the division that is Brexit. Even he had to admit if people can be proven to have lied then they are on thin ice and will invariably have to go.

I suppose it might be useful to turn people off to MSM, other intersting story following on from PR chap about the call for there to be some sort of counter agency, to deal with all the conspiracy theories currently doing the rounds on the internet.
