    Government Briefing prewatch

    One for the health secretary i think – but I really hope they put up Mr Sharma and his soothing boringness zzzzz

    Anyway – I’m hoping that every question will be on -you know what – because any sane non bubble member of the public will be wondering why we arnt hearing about
    Travel – or shops – or jobs – or the end of the furlough or R or The Curve .

    Anyway – for those viewing / deep breaths – nice thoughts …..

    The BBC lies, the BBC attempts to scare the crap out of the nation.

    A bloke tries to do the best for his kid and we get this.

    What a pathetic nation we have become

    When I watched the footage of the media scrum around Cummings outside his home the words “Lynch Mob” came to mind!

    This particular Lynch Mob revelling in the sure knowledge that their behaviour would never come under scrutiny from the good citizens at the BBC, Guardian or Independent.

    It was a bit like an old western movie where the town idiot screams lies and whips all the other folk into an unthinking rage until the innocent victim dangles from a tree.

    The cowardlt useless incompetent Tories have yet again shot themselves in the foot with their past actions.

    In politicising the Police the idiotic leftie David Cameron allowed Liebour to get their hands on yet another of the levels of power, and you might have thought that so called ‘gate gate’ would have given them some insight into the mindset of todays plod, they were too dim witted to even notice.

    So now we have Labour ensconced in power over the Police and what is investigated. The acting Police Commissioner for Durham is in fact an ex trade union leader (Police federation) Steven White.

    Now he is calling for an urgent investigations using all the powers at the Police’s disposal including ANPR, and GPS tracking of Cummings family phones.

    Of course it’s politically motivated, but what did the cowardly useless incompetents expect when they gifted control of the Police to their opposition?

    Serves them right in my opinion.

      Thoughtful – The Police are supposed to be strictly non-political. A blatant attempt by White to enter the political arena, means there is at least 1 person who needs to resign pronto, long before Cummings even thinks about it..
      What will the Tories do? Alas, the Minister in charge is ultimately Priti Patel, so we shouldn’t hold our breath.

        The Police are blatantly politicised now thanks to the idiotic Cameron leading to a judge recently describing Humberside Police as acting like the Gestapo.

        Alas they are not alone.

    The Cabinet is due to meet at 1300 Monday . Mr Cummings will apparently make a statement and answer questions at some unknown Date and time – maybe even today .

    This will be followed by him , his wife and 4 year old as well as his elderly parents being put in stocks outside the BBC HQ where various members of the media will queue up to defecate on them all before the use of a blowtorch and pliers …..

    Meanwhile decent people be enjoying bank holiday sunshine – naturally Dom Cummings will be blamed for this .

    Ladies and Gentlemen- sometimes people chirp up here and question the need for websites like this and our friends . Current media madness shows that reason – and I feel proud to do my tiny bit ….

    Imagine for one minute if that litter of parasites calling themselves the media , that are currently camped outside the Cummings FAMILY home , were doing the same outside Lammys, Abbotts, Soubrys , Thornburys etc !!!!!

    There would be police, night and day keeping them safe , there would be arrests and no doubt calls from the BBC of far right thugs outside making their lives a misery !!!!! The left would be in meltdown at the Far Right threatening behaviour.

    But as it’s Cummings, and it’s the Left who are perpetrating the aggression , that’s fine. Indeed all the media seem to be intent on is inflaming the situation.

    They really are SCUM.

      Regardless of the rights or wrongs of what Cummings has done, I thought the media scrum outside his house was abominable.

      WHY is it necessary for 8 or 9 photographers to take a succession of close up photographs of their ‘victims’ face ? It used to be the sort of thing seen in American films, but now since the time of Diana – where photographers would walk backwards in front of her to get a shot, we see this undignified behaviour here.

      I think if I found myself in that position, I would just stand still, saying nothing, while they clicked away until they got fed up of getting the same photo shot. You’re right Dooby, they are a low life, and to behave that way when he had a child in his arms was beyond obscene.

      Doobster:

      There are no enemies on the left.

      They all support each other because they know that they are good people and that history is on their side.

      They also know that right wing or conservative people are selfish, racist murdering bastards, who therefore deserve everything they get.

      But the main thing to remember is that there are no enemies on the left. You only have to look at the various red bishops who are lining up to condemn a man who only wanted to ensure a small child would be cared for by relatives if his parents died. We all know they would change their tune if the child washed up on the coast of Kent in a dinghy. We also know they are hypocrites. But the important thing is that they are men and women of the left, and thus they are protected. There will never be a scrum of reporters sticking cameras in their faces outside their palaces.

    Lotsa footage of Durham and Barnard castle.
    Wee Crankie comes on with the predictable.
    A large assemblage of anti-Boris voices, selected by beeb. Apparently there is lotsa ANGER according to beeb. “White-hot ANGER” The whole country are phoning in, hints beeb to express their ANGER.
    Daniel Sandford comes on to reinforce Jessica.
    Any of you phone in to express your ANGER over Cummings?
    I’m thinking of phoning in to express my ANGER.
    WITH THE TREACHEROUS BEEB.
    They seem to be smelling blood in the water.
    I hope Dominic tells them to get stuffed, as the campaign is a Labour/beeb/Guardian/SNP campaign to get Boris -little to do with Durham or any trip.

    Don’t hold your breath for anything similar about expansionist/imperialist dictator, Comrade Xi, presumably a nice man who only loves his people. (Probably a hero at Broadcast House). And who definitely never uses ‘foul language’.
    Oh, my goodness: who’s a nice leader then, absolutely tops, respectfully addressed by beeb as ‘Prime Minister’ in a grovelling voice? Why, it’s Jacinda Ahern, (quite unshaken by a little earthquake), we are surprised….
    Unlike Bolsonaro, she is real cool man, real cool. We just know from beeb she doesn’t have any advisers who drive around all over the country.

    Their propensity for hypocrisy is boundless. Whilst they travel the entire country, gleefully showing us all the places the rest of us can’t visit, the huge legions of BBC journalists, for some reason classed as essential workers, go into apoplectic fits because a government advisor travelled somewhere during the lockdown. Their unified tirade against Cummings, no doubt brought about by a paralysing psychosis which renders all rational thought impossible, is another reminder of why the Corporation has to go. The rest of us look upon their malicious rantings with despair. I wonder if the Nightingale Hospitals could be repurposed as asylums to care for these demented souls or, failing that, they could be looked after in all those care homes which are now empty.

    If Mr Cummings does go, then all Boris has to do is employ him in the same capacity, and in another position where he can run riot against all the wet lefties, the BBC, and the other boring leftie rags with paywalls the size of a small African village.

    Probably a much easier task to have him as a free agent, getting the dirt, spilling the beans, poking mullock (that’s enough metaphors, Scrobs – Ed)!

    He could major (wrong word, but means success this time, not the grey failure eating peas), on every BBC hurt going, take the fatsos like Bunter apart at their bulging seams, poop all over knobs like Peston, tell Laura to ‘er – **** ***, (she is after all, still a lady), and I’d love to read his blogs, his columns, his other items etc, as he could be the real loose cannon most normal people need to finally see off the BBC for ever!

    Go Dom! Either way, you’re one of us, and act like that slug Campbell, (certainly better than him, and not as psychopathic) who is utterly hated by most normal people because he is seen as a liar and a nasty git (sources say – ha ha ha); you can do the same to the Toynbees, the Sucker Starms, the Kinnocks etc. etc. etc!

    Nice one Scroblene.
    Two possible problems?
    1) If C goes, would Boris have the courage to reappoint him?
    2) If he does go, the beeb etc will see it as a victory, even if he is later put into another position…
    It’s all about their campaign. If he goes, they will see it as a success, whatever else happens. The narrative (they badly want) is that Boris has buckled. Always remember: this is not about Cummings. This is about a victory over Boris. Huge symbolic triumph for beeb, Guardian, Surkeer, Bunter etc if C goes.
    The follow up message: Government is (seen to be) crumbling. The Tory party is divided. (Notice the publicity given to Tory MPs who want C to go.) The field is open for Surkeer. He has his first big victory, Corbyn will be of the past, etc. “THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER…” is the song I hear.
    The Labour spirits will be lifted, and the narrative will be: ‘bring on the election’. The truth that this could be a lot of garbage won’t matter. It’s all about the narrative.
    Watch beeb: they almost always have an agenda and that agenda is woven into whatever tapestry they’re working on at the moment. In fact, the agenda is probably HIDDEN beneath the glittering tapestry of the narrative. Sell the narrative, and you’ve moved your agenda forward.
    That is the beeb DNA.

    2 He has something up his sleeve and comes out fighting and still let’s the parasites have it.

    Either way I pity the poor sods on the receiving end…

    The ability of police to deliver the lockdown message may have been “damaged” by the Dominic Cummings case, says the acting crime and victims’ commissioner for Durham police.

    Speaking on Radio 4’s World at One, Steve White said: “I think if you lose the trust of people then, yes, it will be damaged. Policing works on trust.”

    REALLY, REALLY, STEVE WHITE and how many years (YEARS) did it take you lot to move on Rotherham, to seek out TRUTH at Hillsborough, standing around in closely packed groups clapping on Westminster bridge. Dick Head of the Yard was on Desert Islands discs a few months ago, and now you showboating on R4 talking about TRUST, most of us know that you are the instruments of state and have no interest in justice when push comes to shove. It’s a wonder you know how to spell the word TRUST ! Most of the thinking public think you are ethically bankrupt. Oh, and while I’m at it, if you do get caught out you just play the early pension card. Sickening. I note you are ‘acting’ ‘crime and victims – you should be quite good at that (‘acting’).

    They come over as spineless.

    Since DC went up north and infected everybody making the NE the worst area in the UK for the Chinese Wuhan virus and infecting everybody on the motorway on the way we’ve had the Tories on the defensive every day.
    All he needs to do is tell the truth and destroy lies such as you can’t go to your Mother’s funeral. Pug destroyed their (lefties) funeral argument in an earlier post, DC could do with some facts like Pug’s to shut the msm and every other parliamentary party up.

    And these people coming out of the woodwork saying they’ve seen him here (they’ve seen him there, that damned ((not so)) elusive DC)
    Well, if Hitler had won he would have found plenty of helpers in amongst the UK population, these types of lefty (like national socialist lefty) are the ingrates and brown nosers who would make sure that they told the nazis who was out of line.

    So Dominic. Show the cowardly Tories how it’s done.

    Yes indeed, it’s all on. Vicky Young says on beeb TV at the outset that the Tories are divided. The narrative is rolling.
    Simon Hoare MP (Con) says his constituents are very, very angry. He is outraged. I love watching that very predictable narrative being rolled out. The TORIES ARE DIVIDED. Boris’ own MPs want Cummings to go.
    Vicky harps on about the anger of CONSERVATIVE MPs. No, not Labour. The Tories. Perish the thought that Surkeer is watching and waiting.
    Now, with the Tories divided, WILL BORIS BUCKLE?
    Now beeb mentions the POLICE investigation. (The Labour police?) A little hint of illegality there. Sandford is spinning the narrative now. Eat your hearts out Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, et al
    Now beeb says this is RISKY FOR CUMMINGS AND RISKY FOR BORIS.
    See that AGENDA rolling away beneath the narrative? Now beeb suggests the damage HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. Anticipation of triumph. We get it: Boris is THE REAL TARGET.

    The tapestry is as predictable as when we see the tapestry of the Battle at Hastings. And almost as old. We know it.

    Wonder if there will be apples in the garden? A naked lady? Has Laura got a trick up her sleeve?

    Oh…Durham police change their story…now say the officer who spoke to Cummings’ father gave no advice on C19…just on security matters…note it was Cummings’ father who phoned the police. Oddly the BBC presenter didn’t make any comment on this surprising revelation.

    From the Guardian previously…

    ‘Durham police say they did contact PM’s top aide over alleged breach of lockdown. Spain to welcome foreign visitors from July and restart football league in early June’

    Not true was it?

    Also…Durham’s PCC is an ex-police federation[union] leader who had continual battles with the Tories…he is demanding the police investigate Cummings….is the police force to be used as a political tool to take down political opponents? Seems so…but you don’t hear any comment from the BBC.

    BBC take on this is completely negative and critical of Cummings and Boris. Listening to them witter on as they await Cummings appearance.

    1. Boris defended him only because Cummings is a crucial part of his administration…not because he did something perfectly legal and reasonable?

    2. The BBC is desperate to know if this is ‘gaining any traction with the public’.

    3. This is a total failure of communication by the government and hence this can’t be put to bed…really? A perfectly valid explanation has been given but the Media has refused to accept it and continues to demand Cummings’ head….it’s a media problem not the government’s. BBC presenter…’If this story was defensible would this story have rumbled on? ‘ Er….yes…the media want it.

    4. Police are involved..hence very serious….see above.

    5. Will Cummings apologise? Er…for what?

    6. People are flouting rules ‘because of Cummings’…rubbish.

      ‘The huge amount of public anger’ is another of those confected falsehoods. The ‘public’ anger is confined, as usual, to the expected sources, the rest of the population are bored to tears – and the longer the MSM keep this up, the less effective their message, and their point in existing will become.

    Someone sabotaging the Cummings interview with a trumpet ? Is it that Mr Shouty Man that used to plague parliament with his “Stop Brexit” ? Someone with a car horn now !
    It looks as if the meeja tried to stitch him up.
    Cummings needs to go on the offensive now and Boris should go – “No more Mr Nice Guy” from now on .

    As Dominic speaks – not, I have to say, with anything significant to say so far – a car horn sounds continuously out in Whitehall.
    For some reason the police, whose remit it is to maintain the peace, seem unable to stop it. Or might it be disinterest?

    Laura is up first in the garden. Who would have thought?
    She corrects him about people disagreeing. They are ANGRY, she says. There is that word again.
    She sees he won’t go, so she wants an apology.
    He won’t.
    Then Peston is on. What a surprise! Is he petty, or what? And, oh so boring. Trying to shame Cummings. If a schoolteacher did that to a pupil, the sh.. would hit the fan.
    But apparently THE RULES don’t apply to journalists. Who would have thought?
    On comes the next apology demander. She is really aggressive.
    He still won’t go, or apologise.
    Attaboy, Dominic. Don’t let the media intimidate you. That’s their game. All that self-righteousness, allegedly on behalf of the British ‘people’. Makes one want to vomit.

    This is, as I suspected, going to be a waste of time. He’s clearly not going to dish dirt, and judging by Laura K’s stupid questions we’re going to go through the same things again and again.

    Don’t know who thought this would be a good idea but Dominic’s hesitancy and lack of coherence is simply feeding the frenzy.
    At least the questioners are regarded as clowns already, so in that respect the outcome is insignificant. And now, with grateful thanks to Beth, she makes my point – by repeating what has been said, ad infi-bleeding-nitum.

    Dom ums and ers and whines. Laura cites ‘many people and some people’ setting the general tone that Dom must apologise for operating with one rule for him and another for the suffering masses.
    And that tone of anger continues to be expressed by a media that does not give a shit about the rape of children.
    As the questions continue Dom wilts and I now have to switch off before he weeps in public.
