Dominic Cummings shone a light on government failings with WhatsApp screenshots
I'm almost impressed that Cummings, the man behind the Brexit bus, "Turkey is joining the EU", "Get Brexit done" and the Barnard Castle eye-test is saying we shouldn't trust the government because they're liars.

Experts cast doubt on legitimacy of message describing Matt Hancock as ‘totally fucking hopeless’, as there’s only one expletive.

being called “totally fucking hopeless” isn’t that bad unless it’s coming from an old Etonian buffoon in a clown car in which case it is

I for one am glad our government is made up of one of the teams from a series of The Apprentice during a global panblini

‘Totally fucking hopeless’ is actually a compliment when applied to Matt Hancock.

I can’t believe we’re at a point in British politics where we’re all reading the prime ministers WhatsApp messages, like your mate screen-shotted a row with her boyfriend and forwarded it to the girls group to bitch about it.

This is like the bit in Jurassic Park when the T-Rex fights the raptors: you’re not supporting either because they’ve killed lots of people, but it’s fun to watch them attack each other from a distance https://t.co/CvIEp6qCkq

Cummings’ attempt to rebrand as whistleblower didn’t impress James O’Brien.
Dominic Cummings did more than anyone else to create a political environment in which facts don't matter liars in government are unsackable. It is, to say the least, ambitious of him to think he can turn the tanker around.

There was also one glaring omission from the litany of shame.
Hi @Dominic2306 can we see the WhatsApp messages pertaining to your Durham drives and how yourself and Boris decided to get around you breaking the rules that you suggested?

That’s probably going to get a thread of its own.
