Dominic Cummings Incriminates the Government And Himself...

Post by bindeweede »

...In the Herd Immunity Catastrophe.
Boris Johnson’s former chief advisor and mastermind of the Vote Leave campaign, Dominic Cummings, today accused the Government of a “massive failure” in its COVID-19 strategy which, he admitted, he was partly responsible for.
Cummings’ statements before Parliament have offered a fascinating insight into the catastrophic breakdown of the Government’s sense-making and decision-making capabilities in the face of an unprecedented global crisis. They are no doubt a resounding indictment of the failures that facilitated the outcome of over 120,000 deaths and rock bottom economic performance.

But they are also far too convenient.

Cummings has admitted some responsibility for these failures. But he has attempted to deny the mendacious nature of Government decisions which needlessly sought to sacrifice British lives on the altar of business interests.

This was not merely a systemic failure. It was the outcome of a narrow, conceited ideology that Cummings himself had imported into the corridors of power in Britain and of self-serving decisions that he had personally helped craft. He is now attempting to extricate himself from the disaster that he contributed to.

He cannot.

More on Cummings from Byline Times. "The Contradictions of Dominic Cummings."
Dominic Cummings hates the system. That much has been clear for years. He doesn’t care about making friends and he doesn’t care about breaking things. When Iain Duncan Smith was leader of the Conservative Party and Cummings was an up-and-coming advisor, he said that the Tory chief, his former boss, was “incompetent” and that he would be a “worse Prime Minister than Tony Blair”.

Today, he has taken a sledgehammer to the system.

In his hearing in front of MPs, that has lasted for much of the day, the Prime Minister’s former chief aide depicted a horrifying account of incompetence, confusion and inertia during the Coronavirus pandemic, presided over by those in power. “I also failed,” he admitted.
