Think that is pretty much the plan Dex .
Winning Brexit , the bad luck of the pandemic, a blustering jovial demeanour and falling ill have played to the electorates
tolerances but only for so long, time is running out.

Re: Cummins reveals Boris plot !!

Actually I think the whole thread title is wrong, I don't think Boris had a plot he was just desperate to fill his lifelong ambition to be PM and got swept along by those who found this ambition useful in getting Brexit done.
If there hadn't been any Brexit BJ would never have made PM.

One thing l have noticed, is that for the Tories, party loyalty
Is more important than national interest ??
For the Labour party the most important thing is to oppose
anything the Tories propose,( good or bad !) ??

But Dman, that is the sole purpose of the opposition parties at this stage. Only when we get to within a year of an election do they start developing and publishing their own policies.

That's how it's always been

Re: Cummins reveals Boris plot !!

Shock horror I agree with a lot of the things Cummings had to say for example ...
..We need a change from the sterile 2 party system and the 'same old same old',
..the bureaucrats need a shake up,
..Brexit is good for the country (not necessarily how it has been implemented)
..We need more focus on science and technology.


I also saw at the time the whole reason he went to Barnard castle and it was logical to me.

Re: Cummins reveals Boris plot !!

Once Boris is away, I hope John Redwood finds a way to the front.

He's MP in the seat next to ours, and I'm well impressed with what seems to be his sincerity & honesty.

We need some of those, right now!

I will happily second that.

I'd like to see JR-Mogg given a bit more too; I know he's a bit "Marmite" but you always know exactly where you stand with him plus he gives straight answers.

Re: Cummins reveals Boris plot !!

Hi

I was long gone when Cummings appeared.

It is fair to say we would not have been friends.

Under what professional circumstances might you have had contact with Cummings then?
