I fully believe he SHOULD sack him but what happens if he doesnít? Heís got four years, an 80 seat majority, and an electorate who will have well and truly moved on by the time 2023 comes around.
5,10+ years ago...heíd have resigned or been sacked. But we look to Trump and the US and itís pretty clear that there just arenít consequences for actions in this political era.
ĎHeís got to go!í...well yeah, of course he should (as should Johnson and all of the MPs who effectively told the British public that itís one rule for them and one rule for everyone else) but what happens if he doesnít? The world keeps spinning, people grumble for a bit and then life moves on. Cummings, Gove, Johnson et al are counting on it. And I really donít see an uprising or revolution coming to change that.
So, depressing as it certainly is, no matter how many front pages align on this one, Iím still not seeing why Cummings has to go...?
his time in Durham coincided with his uncles death (her brother), and the family were grieving
Putting aside the fact that thousand of families across the uk have been grieving and have not flouted the rules..
The uncle died in London, a week after Cummings left London to go to Durham.
The Daily Mail has turned, front page tomorrow says Cummings must go.
If Johnson has a brain he'll end this quick, it isnt going to go away. I've spoken to 3 people I know who are pro Brexit, two of which voted Tory last election, they are all fuming about this (and thankfully can see that it isnt a brexit issue)
