Dom Cummings retrofits his blog to say he predicted pandemic

FFS. Yes, sorry, it's another Cummings thread.

BBC article here by Faisal Islam

The gist of it is: during the lovely rose garden press conference, DC said ""only last year I wrote explicitly about the danger of coronaviruses"

Turns out his blog was edited ON 14th APRIL THIS YEAR to mention coronavirus.

14th April was the day DC returned to work after his jaunt(s) to Durham.

And then he drew attention to it during the press conference this week, trying to deflect attention from his shonky actions by pretending to be some pandemic seer.

And this deceitful man pulls the strings of our Prime Minister.

At my workplace if you altered something, even if it was a personal blog that you bought up in a work context, it would be a serious matter. Total lack of integrity.

**I meant 'brought up'

I cant believe they are allowed to get away with so many lies, its shocking.

I’m not sure if this is shocking or unsurprising. Or somehow both!

It doesn't mean he didn't warn about possible pandemics, only that it wasn't in his blog or that blog. I'm not sticking up for him about anything and dislike this government but it doesn't strike me as the sort of thing he would lie about.

In any normal job, the man would be fired.

But as he clearly has Kompromat on Johnson, he is still in post.

It's really painful to watch.

The barefaced lies. The utter contempt for the public. It's disgusting.

@HeyChief it's not suprising, it's just pathetic.

It's the only explanation isn't it
