Boris Johnson: this is his response to your complaints that Dominic Cummings ignored lockdown rules. What are you going to do about it?

How kind of Boris Johnson to grace us with his presence at the daily Cocid-19 briefing, and explain that Demonic – er, Dominic – Cummings didn’t obey lockdown rules because they weren’t meant for elites like him but for plebs like you.

Okay, he didn’t put it in as many words, but the meaning was clear:

(Incidentally, if you’re wondering why I’m using the clip with signing…)

He seemed keen to evade the principle question – is it one rule for Tory government elites and another for the rest of us? – but the message was clear:

Even the UK Civil Service’s dedicate Twitter feed registered its disgust:

“Arrogant and offensive.

“Can you imagine having to work with these truth twisters?”

It was up for only 10 minutes, during which it accumulated around 30,000 retweets, and the same number of likes, which is indicative of the strength of feeling, not just in the civil service but in the UK as a whole.

Okay, Johnson had his supporters, but for the wider attitude of the UK public, see Michael Jones’s tweet below:

He’s not the only one:

Here’s just one person’s story, corroborating Mr Jones’s conclusion:

“My Aunt died alone in a care home from Covid19. My brother and mother who live locally were not allowed to see her, hold her hand in the last moments or say goodbye. My mother couldn’t attend the funeral, or let me stay with them on my way to the funeral, because Govt guidelines don’t allow it.

“What I have seen today is that I was stupid. I could have just exercised my judgement that it was essential. My sacrifices, my mother’s sacrifices were for nothing. Or maybe if we were rich elites it would have been ok.”

That is the mood of the nation – especially those of use who have lost loved ones and were forbidden from even saying goodbye (and remember, thanks to Johnson’s snivelling incompetence, there have been more than 62,000 of those deaths).

If you have any doubts left, check out the results of my own Twitter poll. At the time of writing, it shows more than 96 per cent of respondents believe the Tories cannot be trusted to handle the UK’s response to the coronavirus pandemic – and they want to do something about it:

Civil disobedience?

It’s an idea with a lot of merit to it – especially if done to protect ourselves and our children from the consequences of damnfool Tory stupidity.

And it seems to have gained some traction:

So there it is. Who’s in?

There’s no downside, for obvious reasons. Any objection can be countered with what I think we should call the “Cummings defence”: that you followed the instincts of every parent.

I’m not going to force anybody into it; this has to be an individual decision by the people involved.

But, obviously, if you don’t do something, you’ll be saying you’re happy to let Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson and all those other slimy creeps do whatever they want and laugh at you. Your choice. Let me know what you’re going to do.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
