Agree Hancock is useless? Yup, and a few other things too.

Doesn't mean Johnson is not also a useless lying waffling sack of excitement too though.

Typo?

Or over-enthusiastic Autocorrect?
Sorry, what typo?
well the sack of excitement is the PM so if that's what he thinks of Hancock why didn't just give him the bullet?
Such things probably were said at a very fraught time when no one really knew what to do for the best. I don't know what Cummings hopes to achieve with these disclosures - who would risk employing him in future?
I dont understand why he kept Hancock on and thats the real problem. Boris is not a leader unfortunately. He did (sort of) get us out of the EU which was his forte, but after he should have moved on so a proper Tory could pick up the baton and drive the Country forward to prosperity.

Undoubtedly.

But now thinking about it - this might explain why Johnson didn’t sack Cummings over Bernard Castle. At the time a lot of mates were asking what he had over him.

Wonder if the dates line up.
//I don't know what Cummings hopes to achieve with these disclosures - who would risk employing him in future?//

He hopes to bring down Johnson, or probably more specifically "Princess nut nuts"

Perhaps he doenst need employment, although I'm sure there are those that would employ him for certain tasks. Hancock on the other hand is totally unemployable.

Cummings claimed during last month’s testimony that Johnson held on to Hancock to have someone to sack when the inquiry is held

But again - this is Cummings, so…pinch of salt.
Who would want to be in charge of the NHS at ANY time let alone during pandemic ?
The NHS is the killing ground for ANY aspiring Politician nobody, of either persuasion has made his name being the Secretary of Health.
Hancock has been no better or worse than any past holder of that post given the situation.
Yes, ineptududes have been a part of his curriculum vitae, but for his arguably pitiful salary, I wouldn't entertain the position.

In terms of comic relief, Hancock is NOT useless.

He’s a genius in the vein of his namesake, Tony.

Worth it for the ‘Woody from Toy Story’ clip alone.

Impossible not to laugh at.
sqad: "The NHS is the killing ground for ANY aspiring Politician nobody, of either persuasion has made his name being the Secretary of Health." - I think a certain Mr Bevan might not agree with that!
//Hancock has been no better or worse than any past holder of that post given the situation.//

Oh, do they all hand lucrative contracts to their Landlord mates and family companies where they hold a stake?
But you can't accuse him of not getting PPE then slate him for going to suppliers where he knew he could get it!

/////Yes, ineptududes have been a part of his curriculum vitae, ////

I thought that I had addresses your point.

No judgement - would you say that Hancock has done a good job under the circumstances and that Johnson is out of line calling him useless?
//But you can't accuse him of not getting PPE then slate him for going to suppliers where he knew he could get it!//

There were plenty of people offering their service, the Government ignored them. And they were people with experience not a pub Landlord. I remember the furore and exasperation being expressed at the time.

So yes I can and do accuse him.
Boris says Hancock is useless, not correct , they are both useless and Boris is more useless than Hancock. They are a pair of tools.
I'm disturbed to find myself agreeing with Bojo on anything, but there it is.

But of course Bojo appointed Hancock and Cummings. What a bunch of wallies to be left in charge of a country.
lol, Sqad, I know it was just a typo but "ineptududes" is as good a description of the government as I've seen in a while.
