PETER HITCHENS: Sack Dominic Cummings for his wild midnight ride to Durham? Only if you want a LONGER lockdown

By Peter Hitchens for The Mail on Sunday

I can’t stand Dominic Cummings. It was loathing at first sight when I first came across him in 2001 and nothing I have heard or seen since has changed my mind.

And I hope that anyone who reads this column knows that I am not a defender of the Johnson Government, which I regard as Blairism without the charm.

So why do I say that Mr Cummings should not be sacked from his Downing Street job? Why am I adamant that he should not be fined or prosecuted for his wild midnight ride to Durham, or for his blurred, myopic bumble up the road to Barnard Castle?
Why would you want him sacked? If he is dismissed, then he won’t suffer. He’ll walk into a better paid job in the private sector. What good will that do you? Far worse, his dismissal or prosecution will only reinforce the unhinged rules which have caused so much misery and illness

Well, there are lots of reasons. The first is that, like Mr Cummings himself, I think the rules he broke are stupid and futile. The only difference between him and me is that I have argued from the start that they are a mad over-reaction. He has never actually said so.

But he plainly thinks so – or otherwise why did he take no notice of those rules as soon as they interfered with his normal life?

In this, he is the same as Professor Neil Ferguson, the man whose warnings of mass deaths gave the Government the excuse for the whole disaster. If Professor Ferguson really believed this, he would not have dreamed of canoodling with a non-member of his family.

I doubt that anybody much in the top layers of Government truly believes all this rubbish. They know it has not worked and has done terrible damage and only cling to it in the hope that they will not be found out.

They created a panic and lost control of it. They are now just hoping to get through the misery they caused without anybody realising just what a mess they made, or punishing them for it.

Gosh, how I hope that a chilly, severe public inquiry, preferably headed by Lord Sumption, exposes these nincompoops to the derision they deserve, once this is over.

But for now, back to Mr Cummings. Why would you want him sacked? If he is dismissed, then he won’t suffer. He’ll walk into a better paid job in the private sector. What good will that do you?

Far worse, his dismissal or prosecution will only reinforce the unhinged rules which have caused so much misery and illness. If he must be penalised, then so must everyone else. The shutdown will grow tighter and last longer.

This throttling of normal life has already devastated the British economy. Isn’t it time at least to stop making this any worse?

Just you wait for the first of many ‘emergency budgets’ which will rip apart your standard of living and your savings, so that you can live on as a ghost of your former self in the blasted remnants of our former prosperity.

By keeping him on, the Government makes it certain that the remaining respect for those rules will shrivel and die, and they will go sooner.

I think they are already fading. The police fear to enforce them. So keep him in his post.

Oh, and I don’t like living in a country where what seem to me to be perfectly normal private actions can be observed and reported by informers. This is what happens when the police become the enforcers of Government whims, rather than impartial servants of the law.

So let him stay, weakened and chastened. Better still, display Mr Cummings and Professor Ferguson at every future Government Covid press conference. Make them wear the muzzles the virus fanatics ceaselessly recommend to the rest of us, and let them keep silent.

And place a big red and yellow notice in front of them declaring: ‘They don’t believe this stuff, and nor do we – so why on earth should you?’

EVEN THOUGH I THINK WHAT THIS FALL GUY FOR THE CON PARTY HAS DONE IS WRONG IT HAS SHOWN UP HOW FAR THE EU CLONED LEFTIES WILL GO TO STOP BREXIT ---------HE IS THE LESSER OF THREE EVILS, THE TWO BEING LEFTIES AND THE BIASED BRAINWASHING CABALA OUR COUNTRY WOULD BE A FAR BETTER PLACE WITHOUT THEM , IT HAS SHOWN THAT WE DO NOT NEED POLITICIANS, NOR BIG MOUTH SO CALLED CELEBS, NOR FOOTBALLERS OR SINGERS WHO THINK THEIR WORD IS GODS LAW--------AND THEN WE HAVE THE SISTER OF BORIS DRIVING BACK AND FORTH FROM HER SECOND HOMES TO LONDON AND BACK THEN THERE IS THE LABOUR MP DRIVING OVER TO WALES TO HAVE A PARTY WITH HIS DAD ,NOT MENTIONING OTHER LABOUR WHIPS WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD DO AS THEY PLEASED AS WELL--------IT REALLY IS TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP OF THESE PARASITES ONCE AND FOR ALL,IN MY OPINION THEY ARE JUST TAKING THE PISS AND OUR MONEY
