Cummings fancies himself DM* here, and has been building toward "Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies"**Andy McDandy wrote: ↑Wed Sep 09, 2020 1:27 pmAgreeing with the above. The Cummings model is to attack all the time. As said previously, a never ending series of 1 on 1 confrontations, in which all that matters is to be seen as winning. Exhibit A - Johnson after PMQs, complaining that Starmer didn't attack him on the breach of international law (obeying some rules made up by foreigners vs putting one over on Johnny Mick - no contest how that plays out for the Sun reader crowd).
Cummings may love his 4D chess, but Starmer's getting them to play D&D, and he's playing a very good PvP* game.
*Player vs player. Most roleplaying games are collaborative by design - the party succeeds or fails as a unit. A PvPer is a player who actively sets out to pursue their own interests ahead of the common party goals, up to and including killing any player character who tries to stop them. A smart party will recognise this player a mile off, and get them to a point where they incriminate themselves, or abandon their plan. Or have the rest of the party kill them.
