Not of the greatest importance but keep wondering why Cummings is seen as this great genius, I mean really, what has he actually achieved that is meaningful & sustainable?
Let's examine the evidence
Arguably the "stay at home" messaging was very effective..
Herd immunity, late lockdown, PPE, care homes. Everything. 2nd highest death rate with the most warning of any European nation, and we're an island
He's supposed to be "the big data guy" - but all the data was there
It ends with a weak and unscrupulous PM closing parliament & getting health officials
He's just lucky to have an empty shell of a PM & a courtier press
The handling of his own scandal has just been a series of colossal missteps and unforced errors
Hardly a ringing endorsement
