  1. Absolute bollocks. People of all political persuasions are raging, and rightly so. It's not about him or what he's done. It's that there's no apology - quite the opposite - and that we have a government willing to rewrite the rules retrospectively to suit one of their own. It's disgusting.

  2. I think you’re missing the point that this is a multi-faceted issue. This is not as simple as bloke jumping in a car and driving to Durham. If it was then it wouldn’t be high on the agenda for the media right now. It’s about a government undermining it’s own advice, showing contempt for the general public, lying and deceiving at will, breaking all convention to protect the interests of a few key individuals. How this issue is handled has ramifications for how they lead us (both through the virus and thereafter) and reveals dysfunctional leadership that could justifiably

  3. Nobody is making out like he's been doing that. What they are doing is being genuinely outraged that he's driven 250 miles whilst having symptoms of the virus, whilst the rest of us mug have been staying home struggling through for the past 10 weeks. The reason this is going on longer than the Ferguson and Calderwood incidents is because those two admitted their mistakes and left or were removed from office (although it did take Calderwood a day to do so). I don't care who he is, what he's done in the past etc, I just want Johnson to grow a pair and deal with it proper

"SARS-CoV-2 lethality decreased over time in two Italian Provinces" https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.23.20110882v1 The outcomes: The death rate is decreasing based on several potential factors, mutation to less deadly disease and most important doctors are getting better at treating it because they understand it!

  5. Good day Foxes, I recently posted some financial information on the Foxes in this forum. I have now written an article on the financial situation of the club. I specifically focus on: 1) The impact of winning the Premier League on the club's finances. 2) How reinvesting the additional cash flows received has placed a bit of pressure on the club's recent profitability. 3) How a Champions League qualification will mean that the reinvestment made by the club in 2017/2018 will significantly pay off going forward. I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to get in touch with

  8. so you have stuck to the rules that he didn't, and that your lord and saviour boris johnson has just said you didn't need to stick to at all? do you not see how much they are taking the piss out of us all, especially you for (presumably) voting for, supporting and now defending him? this isn't "faux outrage". i'm not sure why that phrase keeps coming up. nobody is pretending to be outraged by this, people genuinely are outraged by just how fu cking ridiculous and arrogant these absolute cu nts are. there's nothing "faux" about it. like i said, i've got no real issue o

  9. would like to once again ask why you are defending him? no other tory has yet to come up with a reason other than because he's a tory. you don't actually have to defend him, you know? you can take a step back and look at the developments of the last 48 hours and like 99% of the rest of the country, you can think what an absolute bellend. what would it take him and the rest of his pals to do for you to not defend him? like fair play, boris johnson is going to defend him because he owes him this chapter of his career. you owe him absolutely fu ck all? he is actively taking the piss

  10. I bet Neil Ferguson now regrets not doing a press conference saying “you know, she was gagging for it, my balls were absolutely bursting, we took a short drive to a lay-by to test her flexibility before getting it on in the kingsize, we did what any reasonable randy hornbags would have done, no regrets and yes, I’d do her exactly the same again”

  11. That fact checker looks totally legit. The autism line being spun this morning is morally disgusting. It's like everything else has failed so lets use autism as an excuse. It's not. You're sucking up any old crap. He messed up, Boris has messed up, you know it deep down so wake up and stop denying it. You can still support their political aims without having to defend every single cock up.

  12. I'd call them an overwhelming accumulation of probablies. And the suggestion that I might 'perhaps' crash my car if I was to drive my car out of lockdown and cause undue stress for the NHS was enough for you to call me a selfish you know what a few short weeks ago, so I'm struggling to understand your reasoning here. Considering what Cummings did was during lockdown. And he drove over 200 miles. Odd. My wanting to drive elsewhere IF lockdown rules were changed made me selfish. Cummings' actually driving 260 miles actually in a lockdown is absolutely fine. And then also

  23. But the rules were clear. There weren't any extenuating circumstances. If someone in your family is showing symptoms, you stay home. End of. Plenty of people in more challenging circumstances than his have managed it.

  24. This was always going to be the case! In another two more months time we might be on the cusp of a effective candidate vaccine and workable treatments. The world has come so far in such a short time despite a lot of shortcomings, we're so fortunate to live in the scientific era that we do.

  25. Completely right mate; but we spent the entire briefing yesterday, the hour of cummings interview and another briefing today of solely questions on this. They can clearly see they aren't answering outside of the answers they've given continually, so why not ask about the Phase 2 progress and what that entails.

  30. Agreed. On a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of damage a disease could potentially cause to the fabric of society, this likely rated somewhere around a 5 or 6 IMO. It is good nothing stronger came along instead. Though speaking of "something stronger" and being prepared, this deserves a repost:

  31. If the autism story is true, and there are huge doubts, then it doesn't help Cummings' case. Anyone who has worked with autistic children will know that they crave structure, consistency and routine. Taking an autistic child out of his home to an unfamiliar property (remember that the family stayed in a property on the grounds, not the grandparents' house itself) seems at odds with everything I know about autism. It's highly doubtful as a story anyway, as the source is discredited and the 'they went in search of childcare' was very quickly torpedoed yesterday.

  32. Dominic Cummings is a bit of a tw*t at times. But it's the hypocricy I can't stand. All the people making out as though he's been driving up and down the country every day, sh*gging his mistress. Just be honest and say "I can't stand the bloke, and this is a good chance to skewer him". Skip the faux outrage, virtue signalling, party politics, or whatever. Just be honest.

  33. Jesus. Some of the takes from Boris or Cummings worshippers are ridiculous. It's beyond bootlicking to defend people for taking the piss out of millions of those who've been following the guidance, staying away from family and have lost relatives who've died and been buried alive. The NHS staff who have had to deal with the spread of the virus, the care home workers and key workers. Everyone told to go swivel by a PM who appears to have signed his very own zero hour contract. Their response? Lol cLaSSic DoM, lEFtY tEArS etc. Hilarious. You STILL think Bori

  34. There’s no faux outrage, his neighbours were ready to lynch him tonight when he walked home. He can thank social distancing and their self restraint that the abuse he got was just verbal. I know I know some will pass that off as the ‘Metropolitan Elite’ This man is the Chief Advisor to the Prime Minister, to believe the only option available to him was to drive 260 miles for childcare is at best incredibly naive. The fact he did it whilst positive for Covid 19 is just something else. Thousands have died alone with no family member at their side on the basis of this gov

People must remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.''
