Olympic freestyle wibbling champion speaks
“ITV is led by people like Robert Peston who campaigned for Britain to join the euro … ITV has lied to us in private while secretly stitching up a deal with Cameron to stop Boris Johnson or Michael Gove debating the issues properly … ITV has effectively joined the official In campaign and there will be consequences for its future - the people in No 10 won’t be there for long”. Where do we start with that lot?
@Peston”, which prompted Hugo Rifkind’s comment “Why you shouldn't send angry work emails when you're pissed on the night bus”. Quite. So who was the culprit?
Indeed, Cummings appeared before Andrew Tyrie’s Commons select committee last month, where he was equally abusive. When Tyrie pointed out to him “Vote Leave quotes numerous figures on its website … most of them misleading or inaccurate”, Cummings retorted “Accuracy is for snake-oil pussies … and besides, I’ve got a really bad memory”. He was widely regarded as being out of control at the DfE, and now he’s all too obviously out of control at Vote Leave. The group’s credibility is therefore shredding itself.
If Vote Leave can’t control Cummings … we can all have even more of a good laugh.
