    Saw that. Making out like it was planned all along :manson:

    Something is definitely afoot in the Boris camp. Are people SPECULATING? (apart from about Boris having an affair with his PR director which I assume is a joke)

    From what I was reading, there are a number of factions fighting it out in Downing Street - Cummings and Cain being one of them. And now it’s all coming out in public. :D

    Personally I’m all for more public Tory infighting.

    Who knew that a Johnson government would be an absolute farce? :eyes:

    This is like when Disruptor in Chief Geri left her own band of Tories. I look forward to the "success" of solo careers.

    Popbitch suggesting that Cain is a PERV and that's why Carrie wanted rid. I suspected as much.

    Cummings is just bailing out before the shit really hits the fan. He's had his sociopathic fun with us, he'll be off to earn vastly more money with an arms dealer or a drug company.

    Thoroughly enjoying this oversensitive tweet from future Scottish Lib Dem leader (presuming there are still Lib Dems in the future, of course)

    They go on about her cheering POOR BRAVE JO's demise but surely she was cheering a member of her party winning an unexpected seat...

    That said Jo losing her seat was the only good news from that accursed night.

    That's exactly what she was doing - she was celebrating the win. It's such bitterness.

    He’s the Steve Bannon of the UK isn’t he?

    no doubt he’ll be tweeting from the sidelines for the next few years while moonlighting as a strategist for the alt right cyber network.

    It was widely acknowledged that Cummings was Laura Kuessenberg's source to the point where, since Friday, she has been the recipient of a considerable number of tweets to the effect of "that's you FUCKED, eh?"

    It would be simultaneously hilarious and horrific if Cummings was given the heave-ho because he and Johnson were basically fighting over a woman who, of course, wouldn't touch either of them with a physics-defyingly long bargepoll.

    I’ve caught Laura giving Johnson the glad eye more than once.

    She knew how to work him. It was the equivalent of standing in front of the ape enclosure waggling a banana.

    I hear Johnson is afraid to discipline her because she said she'd set fire to Carrie's pig-tails :(

    This has a lot more front-page than I'd expected.

    It's going to be a non-apology and carry on as normal job as usual with this government, isn't it?

    The cynic in me would suggest that it is very usefully distracting from the public sector pay freeze.

    Probably, need something to distract from the £13bn being spent on lazer guns and space soldiers.

    Possibly, but that's on a lot of front pages too. Plus, she's an unusual choice to get thrown under the bus but then, Tories are notoriously dishonorable.

    Just heard the point made that the reason given for John Bercow not going into the Lords was because of bullying allegations yet nothing happen to Priti. WHAT COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE

    Apparently he wants to form a 'protective ring' around her. These are the same cunts who pretend to care about antisemitism just so they have a stick to beat Labour with.

    "Inadvertently".

    "INADVERTENTLY"

    That's basically "it's not her fault she's an insufferable, rude, aggressive, bullying cunt so stop harrassing her".[/QUOTE]

    There has never been a more arrogant UK politician than Boris Johnson. He’s doing to her what he did to Cummings. If I just ignore it and play it down, the braindead British public will soon move on to something else and forget all about it.

    He has the Donald Trump trope that certain people get from a life of obscene privilege. If I just put my fingers in my ears and ignore you for a minute this frightful annoyance will go away and I can carry on doing what I like. It always worked before, why can’t it work now when I’m the most powerful person in the country?

    Ah, the old "accidental bullying" chestnut.

    "She SLIPPED and her head fell in the toilet, sir, and the flush went off while I was trying to help her out!"
