    He's leaving just after brexit kicks in so he's out of the limelight as the heavy duty flak begins

    Pity the cleaner who has to go through his office - who knows what he left there?

    True. I'm happy to see the back of him.

    Clearly No 10 is in a state of utter turmoil. As glad as I am to see Cummings leave, I think he’s just a rat leaving the sinking ship.

    He should have left 5 months ago.

    Right after his road trip. Boris should have just sacked him then.

    I think that Cummings’ road trip gave many people permission to ignore the guidelines. He done irreparable damage to our efforts against the pandemic and BoJo didn’t have the backbone to hold him to account.

    The image of Nosferatu giving his press conference from the Downing Street rose garden infuriated millions. Unfortunately, the damage has already been done and Cummings and his cardboard box are walking off into the sunset.

    He should've never arrived to begin with.

    Yeah - it certainly didn't help enforcement. 'If he can do it why can't we?', especially when he wasn't even punished for it.

    The timing is pretty convenient. If Johnson is buckling under the pressure, getting him out of the public gaze for a fortnight wouldn’t be a bad idea. In any case, I’m sure that BoJo will be an equally effective PM whilst holed-up in his study.

    He won't be able to be at the Government Spending Review in person - it's due to take place on Nov 25.

    Whether in person or during a zoom conference, BoJo is more than capable of bumping his gums and spouting his own brand of bluster and nonsense. Last night, he suggested that a modicum of self government has been a “disaster” for my country and was Tony Blair’s biggest mistake (he really couldn’t think of anything worse that happened while Blair was in charge?). BoJo further opined that he could not “see a case” for transferring further powers to devolved administrations.

    Tories have been trying desperately to walk back BoJo’s comments and turn them into a criticism of the SNP. Unfortunately for BoJo, we all know exactly what he meant and he’s just drumming up support for independence. Keep it up, Boris.

    Seems we're looking at the good old apology > lifting of suspension.

    Honestly think he should have stood his ground but considering Zionists are gonna be on suicide watch due to his reinstatement I'm happy with the results.

    This has been known about for some time; with the zillion new rules that will come in in January, and an almost complete lack of preparation in a country that doesn't produce anywhere near enough of its own food to feed its population.

    I kid not when I urge people in the UK to start stocking up, even if it just means lots of tins, frozen foods, or whatever. Grim times are ahead.

    They've arrested someone for the 1974 pub bombings , let's hope they got the right one this time.
