    Hypocrisy runs deep on this board as well as in politics and society in general.
    For what it's worth I think what both Cummings and Kinnock are alleged to have done was certainly against the guidance but maybe understandable given their personal family circumstances. Of course there may be more unsavoury details to come out yet.
    What no-one seems to have commented on is the hypocrisy of the media pack assembled outside Cummings house who clambered all over each other in their desperation to get a "story" totally ignoring the social distancing rules.

    Seems simple to me.

    He's a government adviser whose judgement has been shown to be flawed.

    A complete lack of common sense mixed with pure arrogance.

    Sack him and move on.

    If this fecker wasn't such a danger to the country I'd say keep him on .

    It's the classic Hitler situation , more value keeping him alive and taking down the Third Reich from the inside than assassinating him .

    However we have four more years of these right wing nut jobs to get through and this loose cannon is capable of anything .

    What I will say is this , he's not a tory , not even a party member and he knows stuff , cut this fecker loose and anything could come out about the government from the handling of brexit to the pandemic .

    There's little wonder Johnson's inner circle are defending him .

Over to you Grist, Gfire, Howdy,Cayton, Kerr, Monty, Millertop, Shark, Stovic etc. Love to hear your opinions on it.. Howsa about about a bit of condemnation eh?

    Shhhhhh!

    At least they wont be able to moan about at me if i do summat similar eh..?

    Just noticed Grist's comment not a condemnation but as near as you will get from him I suppose so thanks for that.

    I have a little note in my head what the other replies will be (or not). I would be a very rich man if I could bet on my predictions...
    What did I say about Steve Coogan? I'll save you the trouble of checking. I didn't say anything. So not sure why you want me to comment on this?

    "Hitler" "right-wing" which world are you living in?

    So far this has been the most socialist government since the 1945-50 one!

    If it's found that he broke the lockdown rules then he will have to go, but I think it's a shame as he was the only one likely to shake up Whitehall, now it looks like the status quo will continue.

    And I doubt he will be allowed to make a comeback like establishment favourites Mandelson and Rudd. Still he should be able to get a good job in the private sector where they're more open to innovation.

    I'll have to read about it and let you know. I saw the headline on the BBC website but it didn't look interesting enough for me to open it. First I read about Steve Coogan was on here too.
