Dominic Cummings: Caught out in Video Saying the Tories Don't Care About the NHS and Poor.
NHS and Universal Credit, Supposedly Designed to Help the Poor.
Be Careful What You Say.
Every person it appears, in power, has a spokesperson, a spin doctor, press secretary, if you will. Tony Blair, had Alistair Campbell, and now, Bo-Jo the clown, has Dominic Cummings. Cummings like Campbell seems to be a bit of a Svengali figure, true cloak and dagger stuff.
Cummings like Campbell, in photos, always seems to be the man in the background, keeping aloof, from others in the room. Campbell, back in Blair's day and Cummings now, will be in charge of the public image of their respective leaders and party. Every question will be screened before being put to the Prime Minister of the day, nothing negative will get out and everything including photos, videos, postings on social media, etc, must give the viewer a positive spin.
Dominic Cummings was the man, behind the 'Vote Leave' campaign in 2016. The man who put the message on Boris's battle bus about getting back £350 million for the NHS.
Also, as Bo-Jo might be contemplating an early general election (so some say), Mr Cummings will be prepping himself, his party and the electorate, for a general election campaign. It will be a dirty campaign, whenever a general election is announced. Cummings will identify supposed weaknesses in opposition leaders and trawl stuff up from the past to embarrass and score points against political opponents, such as Jeremy Corbyn of Labour, Jo Swinson of the Lib-Dems, Nigel Farage of the Brexit party, etc.
Make no mistake, Cummings is a very intelligent and deadly man, who knows exactly what he is doing. When a general election is called, as it will be, (no matter what happens to Brexit and Boris) opposition parties, had better be tooled up and ready to meet fire, with fire. Cummings because he is Bo-Jo's chosen man, in 10 Downing Street, has been called, the second most powerful man, in the UK, after Boris.
No doubt, Cummings will be advising Boris, what to do about a 'No-Deal' Brexit. Apparently, a large amount of money has already been put aside, for such an eventuality. One person on Facebook put a posting that the taxpayer has been mugged again, as a large amount of dough, will obviously come from them.
Cummings though (although he probably didn't realise it at the time) has made a bit of a gaffe (something his friend, Bo-Jo, should be all too familiar with). In 2017, Dominic Cummings was giving a speech, in which he said, the Tories didn't care about the NHS or the poor. Mr Cummings continued that the British public had "cottoned on", to this fact, some time ago.
Although there has been no response from the Conservatives at the moment, Cummings and his cronies will have to do some damage limitation on this. If the Tories, do care about their public image and how they come across, one would think, the Tories will be panicking about this leak. Unless of course, they don't care or are perhaps hoping, this video, will just disappear. Labour and the opposition parties, should strike while the iron is hot, and use this evidence, that the Tories, are still the nasty party.
The Conservatives Have Become a Party for English Nationalism.
Boris Johnson has been doing a tour of the UK, visiting the other three nations, that make up the UK, besides England. Calling England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the 'Awesome Foursome'.
Scotland is ruled by the SNP (Scottish National Party) who with Nicola Sturgeon, as the UK nation's, First Minister, wants another referendum. Although, the first referendum proved Scots wanted to stay in the UK, since then things have changed. Scotland in the main voted to stay in the EU, in 2016, however, because most of the votes went to leave, in England and Wales, many Scots feel the time is right, for Scotland, to pursue its own course. Many Scots, even those that voted to remain in the independence referendum in 2014, in the UK, now have their doubts. The doubt is inspired by the fact that Scotland (who voted mainly to remain in the EU) is being dragged out of the EU by other nations in the UK, who voted to leave. The meeting between Mr Johnson and Ms Sturgeon at Bute House, in Edinburgh, didn't produce any positive results, it would appear. If anything, it has made Ms Sturgeon, more determined to call another referendum and deliver her the result, she desires. That is Scotland, voting to leave the UK and be an independent nation. However, Bo-Jo has ruled this out as Ms Sturgeon would need to ask Westminster's permission, to hold another referendum. Some have called Nicola Sturgeon's obsession with Scottish independence bonkers. Some have questioned the logic of Sturgeon's thinking. Scotland wants to be free of London rule to pursue its goal of being a free nation, yet it wants to remain/rejoin the EU, and, be ruled from Brussels instead!
Boris has been to Wales and met the Welsh First Minister, Mr Drakeford, who remains sceptical of Boris. It seems even, the Welsh, are considering their future outside of the UK, but still being in the EU. As for Northern Ireland, well, there is no government there right now and DUP and Sin Fein remain at loggerheads.
Some are saying that Bo-Jo, could, in theory, be the last UK Prime Minister. Brexit could cause the break up of the UK. With Scotland becoming independent, also Wales and Northern Ireland joining the south, as one nation. Which would leave England also an independent nation?
Some are calling the Conservative party, an English nationalist party and they may be right.
