Amazing how – when you go onto the Microsoft news front page today – you get 2 news next to each other

  1. Dominic Cummings to leave Downing Street by December
  2. The Yorkshire Ripper died aged 74.

It’s how news outlets can create associations in people’s mind. In this case it’s good riddance for both of them. Despite the involvement in society for Mr Cummings had nothing to do with criminality. But the press managed to associate the worst criminal with a political advisor in this context.

I think Mr Cummings is just a dad with a young family and he is vilified by the media and blamed for everything bad. The only thing he is perhaps guilty of is using langauge, which is not polished enough to be understood by today’s linguistic media patrols.

Joe Biden’s election will cause a rummage through the political world in Britain and as it just coincides with Britain leaving the EU and a turnaround in political agendas, it will be interesting.

I am not involved at all in politics these days, not at all.
