Last night Dominic Cummings was questioned by a Sky News reporter. He looks quite happy.
We’ll see what we do about the Benn Act when we get to the right date. […] I don’t have a master plan. People say all sorts of things. You say all sorts of things. You don’t know what you’re talking about. So everyone watching at home should know: don’t watch the news because it’s almost all bullshit.
Sounds about right to me. In particular, note his demeanour: he thinks this worked-up self-important journalist is hilarious.
There is more Dominic Cummings at a book launch. He is not under pressure. He just smiles when asked about the idea of keeping the Working Agreement but without the backstop, but he does not answer. I suspect it is out of his hands anyway.
