As the succession of supposedly leading Tories presents themselves for viewers’ inspection on the Sunday politics shows, the impression of ineptitude is inescapable, not least from de facto deputy Prime Minister Dominic “cash flow problem” Raab, who this morning appeared before the inquisition of both Sky News’ Sophy Ridge, and the BBC’s Andrew Marr. He was, let us not forget, running the country recently.
Given the dependence placed by Bozo and his pals on chief Downing Street polecat Dominic Cummings, did Raab know that Dom had piled off to Durham? After all, he’d need to keep in touch, wouldn’t he? Not according to the Ridge show’s Twitter feed: “Dominic Raab says he was not aware that Dominic Cummings was in Durham whilst he was acting Prime Minister and says he found out ‘when the story broke’ in the media”.
“I wouldn’t be able to say with any precision, I want to give you a really accurate, reliable answer, but I hadn’t at the time, I wasn’t aware of it, other than as I said, that he was unwell, he was out of action, and to be honest with you I didn’t inquire as to his own personal circumstances, I was just getting on with the job”. Waffles for breakfast.
Marr mentioned the unrest which is developing in many cities across the USA, and the infamous Tweet from Combover Crybaby Donald Trump, who was called out by Twitter for inciting violence with his assertion that “When the looting starts, the shooting starts”. Would Mr Cash Flow care to offer BBC viewers his thoughts on that incident?
Dominic Raab, the best the Tories could manage today. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
