Boris Johnson's deployment of brute force appears to have saved Dominic Cummings

The public now have a recognisable figure to vilify as the font of everything they dislike about Boris Johnson's government.

Mr Cummings is now a celebrity, and not in a good way.Perhaps the biggest revelation of the last few days, for Tory MPs as much as the public, is that there is apparently nothing Mr Cummings can do that will ever see him removed from office.Cummings may have committed 'minor breach'

He is untouchable, more so than members of the cabinet who - like one-time chancellor Sajid Javid, now fence sitter on Mr Cummings's future - saw them stripped of office if they defied his whims.However, that very sense of being untouchable may in itself become problematic.

Perhaps media can remind themselves of the principles of UK Law, a presumption of innocent until proven guilty and stop acting like judge and jury

Good ScumMedia You mean the scumedia failed in its coup to get rid of DC Why are you peddling FakeNews? Isn’t a shame there is no honour in politics anymore... maybe Voris needs the real unelected PM... Don't think so, does he really think the people will forget, and I wont be doing what he says anymore and loads more will until Cummings is sacked
