I truly hope that this committee do not adopt the approach of; Sir 20/20Hindsight Starmer and Madame Politicise_C19 Sturgeon In using the benefit of what we now know, v what was known at the point a decision had to be made to rubbish the government again. Do they not realise that the population need some kind of assurance that we are doing our best, together, not trying to shaft anyone

The frustration of all this is the arrogance the Cons show, because of the arrogance shown by the muppet Lab Party believing they would win the GE. History has shown us the more leftist Labour get the more right The Cons go. Momentum and Corbyn's Labour got stuffed. Like Militant and Foot's Labour it could be 14 years before Labour see #10 again. They've achieved the complete opposite again.

With chair-lapdog and arch Brexiter Bernard Jenkin setting it all up, Johnson will be laying out his shorts and flip-flops ready for a day at the beach. Thursday, the headlines will read: "Johnson doing a sterling job, committee finds. Completely exonerated" Stitched up like a kipper.

I see the far right populists LOVE liars and fantasists (i.e. Johnson) as they have done throughout history. Why is this? I suggest that the wealthy pay for the promotion of liars who give them all the people''s money. The Tories must sack Johnson and his deadly cabal of agents of the far right and find a decent honest PM who cares about the people. They must do it soon - or they are history.

If Sturgeon is ever 'grilled' let's hope it's not by Lorraine Kelly as it will turn into a luv in. I also hope someone will ask her how, if Scotland was independent and in the EU, how they would have afforded the bail out. The EU certainly wouldn't have helped.

In the middle of the worst public health and economic crisis confounding administrations all over the world it's not really possible to judge the Government and the PM 's performance but it might clarify some actions. National debts worldwide are going to affect the global economy , Brexit may help or hinder , and recovery will depend upon cooperation between nations medically and economically

In my job at uni over ~30 yrs, I have seen many of these 'geniuses' like Cummings. Very intelligent, no doubt, but at the same time utterly ruthless and thinking they are so much cleverer than anybody else. They start to consider themselves above the system/law. It usually catches up with them sooner or later. If it doesn't, it usually means they have 'friends in high places' who protect them.

Boris has no experience of leadership in Govt. and he has been let down by his advisors, but he must take the blame for a few of the mistakes that have been made. The Liaison Committee will only highlight what we already know and give him a warning !!!.
