The whole point of this was to allow the government to appoint people with expertise wasn't it? That's what Borus said the other day

To do this at the same time managing the very worst pandemic response in Europe means peak populism is near.
And render it unsuitable for its primary purpose, in air refuelling, in times of crisis!

Actually I'd agree.

If the UK was more erudite and less yob, that tactic might make sense.

I believe that's true.

He can probably be classified as an activist, which would invalidate any degree obtained at any higher learning institute.

Steady on!

There are limits.

I'm pretty sure that if we were to penalise everyone who came by a peerage, whether nefariously purloined or honestly conferred, we'd probably be bagging a few on our side of the House. Can't have that.

I have largely stayed out of the fight between NZ posters and those defending Bumming (sorry, that was a completely accidental typo, but I thought it was somewhat apt, so I've left it!), but this is what *should* happen when a member of a governmental task force makes a cock-up.

"The move comes less than three months before New Zealanders vote in a general election. Ardern, who leads the liberal Labour Party, saw her popularity soar during the early stages of the virus response, although recent opinion polls indicate the conservative National Party, under new leader Todd Muller, is making inroads into Labour’s lead."

Interesting, this pattern seems to be repeated almost everywhere I've read it mentioned. UK, Sweden, USA, France, Germany, NZ, etc. It seems regardless of how that countries leaders appear to have handled the virus their support rose and has regressed since.

Ok, I see.

Basically you think that his resignation is a cynical attempt to manipulate the electorate for an upcoming election?

It's certainly not a problem Cummings has, though, I grant you.

No, I have little idea of any motivation to resign except he was caught out. Which is weird why, once again, you make big jumps to draw a conclusion from a post where I didn't even comment on his resignination.

There is a certain Tory supporting fanatic on PR that cannot write Stamer's name without putting the word millionaire before it. Almost as if being a self made millionaire is a crime in tory books.

Because you highlighted the fact that an election was coming up.

Why did you do that, if not to say that the reason that he had resigned was nothing to do with the fact that he had f**ked up, but rather because of a cynical attempt to place himself in a favourable light before an upcoming election?

I also thought that, since you had used the prospect of an election as a reason to explain that the resignation was more to do with political manouvering than remorse for f ucking up, I might juxtapose the fact that Cumming wasn't elected and thus has no such qualms.

You blubbering, lonely, bitter, straw-clutching remoaning Jockstrap TWAT. Still whinging and whining about the non- event that was Cummings and months ago. Get a life you clown.
As an aside you so remind me of Ned Beatty in Deliverance, either Boris or Bimbo playing the part of the Hillbilly...

Very deranged post. Are you OK?

I pointed out that the, contrary to the behaviour exhibited by Cumming, the New Zealand Minister had the good grace to resign. This happened recently, so I am entitled to make the comparison.

What that has to do with me being a Jock (I'm not: as I informed you previously, I live in Johannesburg) escapes me.

I highlight a bit fo text discussing a trend in support I've seen replicated all over the world with no apparent common unifying cause. I even posted as much list multiple countries who may and sme certainly don't hav elections where it also happened, so you suddenly jump in and draw conclusions from the parts of the text I did not reference nor discuss.

I even highlighted the section I wa stalking about to be clear what I was referencing that doesn't reference the NZ election and you still spectacularly jumped to the completely wrong conclusion and focused entirely on the bit I did not reference, did not highlight and did not discuss.

This seems to be a persistent problem with your posts. It's like you are desperate to argue and make claims about things not even being discussed or brought up.

OK.

Step back for a minute.

My original post was to compare Cumming's non-resignation with someone who had taken responsibility for his errors.

You then hilighted a passage from my link which spoke about the Minister losing electoral support. From this, I understood that you were trying to infer that the resignation had nothing to do anyone taking responsibility for their actions and everything to do with a cynical attempt to make himself look good in the face of electoral defeat.

If that was not what you were saying, then I fail to see what the relevance the highlited passage is.

I made no mention of whether the implementation of the measures against the pandemic had support or not. I was simply comparing the two cases. I didn't mention any other countries, I was simply contrasting the way that Cumming felt entitled to flout rules with someone sufficiently chastened as to fall on his sword.

It's quite possible that I've misread Clarke's motives in this as I don't follow New Zealand politics that closely, but the reason I posted it was that it was refreshing to see someone take responsibility for cocking up.

What rubbish. I did mentione other countries and I amde no reference to it being about flouting rules. Just the regularity of the pandemic trend where support goes up and down regardless fo how the governemnt is seen to handle it and listed a whole numbe rof countries with a range of pandemic responses and very few of them had anything relevant to do with flouting of rules.

Again given the relevance to a NZ elction was abut the only bit I did not even highlight so I was cleraly not making reference to to it, but to the rest of the statement. You once again jump in directing all these preconcieved made-up assumptions that do not reflect what was actually said then grasp at straws trying to make like it's the obvious when it so obviously isn't.

SUPER SATURDAY
Prince William raises a glass to 'Super Saturday' as pubs get ready to reopen

The Duke of Cambridge joined staff at the Rose and Crown in Snettisham, Norfolk to find out about their preparations to reopen as boozers finally throw their doors open once again

Experts estimate £4billion will be splurged in the first week of the hospitality sector rebooting.

And with 80% of pubs in England preparing welcome back regulars on Saturday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson praised the public’s patience in battling coronavirus.

But he also urged us to “enjoy summer safely” and not “blow it”, sending us back into lockdown.

The Duke of Cambridge, 38, showed his support by dropping in to see preparations at the Rose and Crown in Snettisham, Norfolk.

The reason this wasn't as low key as possible on a Monday is Boris is a moron and prince William is a dickhead.

    Am I the only one feeling ashamed to be British that this gibbering inarticulate walking parody is the Prime Minister? This is embarrassing to watch. He has lost the basic power of speech :lol:

    A Cabinet of sycophants & inadequates compelled to promote public health guidelines brazenly flouted by the Prime Minister’s own father & most senior aide.
    What a mess.

    Govt advice doesn't apply to you if you're connected in some way to the Blond Bullshitter. What a sycophantic, toadying set of cravens we have in this cabinet. :smug:

To be fair the opportunist cnut of the minor "nation" north of the real world has only served to prove what an ungrateful bunch of hypocritical, parasitic remoaning cnuts the PR Jocks really are.
You fuckwits with your incessant sniping from the cheap seats are hilarious. Get yourselves jobs, stop sucking up a DWP paycheque and learn to fend for yourselves would be good point of entry. You're all hilarious, you and the other disaffected bitter, remoaning wankers should take your acts on the road, Edinburgh Fringe a good place to start...

You really are a twisted, bitter and bigoted little englander. Nice touch using a German football team as your username though.
