I have no intention of letting this blog become a ‘political’ blog but having watched yesterday the Press conference with Dominic Cummings then subsequently the daily Government Press briefing I was amazed how the media let the Prime Minister off the hook so have to say something.

I hope that this will be the final time I feel obliged to say something about this debacle.

The majority of questions just repeated the questions put to Cummings, allowing the PM to say repeatedly something like “… you had the opportunity to put those questions to Cummings so there is now reason I should answer them again …”

My question would have been:

“If this man Cummings is so important that you cannot govern without him, what on earth are you doing as Prime Minister?”


I have rarely seen the arrogance displayed by Cummings yesterday by any politician, refusing to apologise to the British public and saying he did not regret any of his actions.
