Gaslighting the nation like it is 1984

The Government: Believe what we say, not what you see
The UK: Yeah. Nope.

Five days into the Cummings Covid Bollocks and they STILL think this will work? They somehow still think that we will swallow the nonsense tale of Covid hardship, irrespective of the rules that OF COURSE HE DIDN'T BREAK. The more they double down on this errant nonsense the angrier the nation is going to get. I am sitting here listening to Radio 5 and the conservative on Emma's Westminster Panel and they are still trying to spin that he did not break the law. This is not going to go away because as they try and bluster and bollocks, gaslighting the nation like it is 1984, 80% of the population be like are you frigging kidding me?
For once their white middle class male privilege is working against them and they have no clue what to do with that... which to be fair is amusing me greatly

1. The Daily Star wins today!

The Daily Star has printed a cut-out-and-keep Dominic Cummings mask on its front page with a pledge that it will allow the wearer to “do whatever the hell you want”, as part of the tabloid’s idiosyncratic response to the scandal involving the prime minister’s chief aide.

The Star – which tends to avoid politics stories and last year proudly declared itself a Brexit-free newspaper – told readers: “Can’t be arsed to stick to the rules like the rest of us? Simply wear this handy Dom face covering and you’ll get away with murder.”

The newspaper also included a “Thought for the day” bubble that reads “imagine having to defend this bloke on TV with a straight face” after further questions about the aide’s decision to undertake a 60-mile round trip from Durham to Barnard Castle to test his eyesight was good enough to drive.

The front page also included a picture of the singer Stevie Wonder commenting on the story, which was justified by the line: “Police have warned people not to copy PM’s aide Dominic Cummings by driving to check your eyesight, especially if you have vision problems like singer Stevie Wonder.”
