Seems apropos from @holland_tom regarding what is so banal about CoE Bishops commenting on Dominic Cummings.
"I see no point in bishops or preachers or Christian evangelists just recycling the kind of stuff that you can get from any soft-left liberal..."
Ha - having forgotten I'd said this, I'm relieved to find that I completely agree with myself.
The saga of Mr Cummings rewriting his blogs to claim he warned about pandemics, when he didn’t, is I suspect just the first of many things he said yesterday which will unravel
While I’d hesitate to cast a stone against someone who had a sick wife & a small child, stood at the epicentre of a national tragedy, & was no doubt acting under the most terrible pressure, this is the detail that seems to leave no doubt he’s a total fraudster
Cummings said he warned about i.a. corona virus in 2019.
Thing is, he didn't. References to SARS and corona virus were added to his blog post on pandemic risks sometime between April and May of this year.
Ahhhh - so THAT’S how you become a super-forecaster...
Non essential retailers, from dept stores to independent shops in England, to be allowed to reopen from 15th June, if they are Covid secure, UK pm Boris Johnson announces.
Bookshops will be free to physically reopen, if they can do so safely, from June 15th. Hugely important news- for the shops themselves, but also for every element of our country's literary ecology: authors, publishers, and of course, readers. Please do all you can to support them
"There's a lot of good lawn mowers around the place now, aren't there, but I think my experience counts for a lot."
Boris Johnson depends on Dominic Cummings, politically and psychologically.
According to this, Cummings put the Spectator online - and was fired, after Boris left, for re-publishing the notorious cartoon about the Prophet Mohammed.
A very important article.
Wonderful walk in the hills on both sides of the Deverills today. It included finding a stone circle which is not marked on the maps, walking past a long barrow and seeing wonderful views like this. Feet up now and rest ! #dailywiltshire
My instinct is positively screaming at me to head for Wiltshire.
