John Crace on yesterday's PMQs, Hancock, and the latest Cummings revelations.
Boris doesn’t care that people know he’s lying, because even his own MPs seem happy for him to do so. A liar’s gotta do, what a liar’s gotta do. The Tories knew what they were buying when they chose him as leader and, as the Cummings blog shows, he’s not about to have a personality change. The irony is that the same MPs are outraged at perceived breaches of faith from other parties and countries, yet are blind to the more obvious failings of their own man.

And on the Martin Bashir affair, which seems to be descending into utter farce:
Three people had submitted their CVs for the job of religious affairs editor from within the BBC and all three had been rejected as unsuitable.

The Beeb had then advertised externally and had received 18 applications, only one of which – Bashir’s – had been deemed worthy of an interview. Then one of the internal applicants who had already been rejected was invited to go for an interview along with Bashir and to nobody’s great surprise Mart was offered the job. To add to the sense of the surreal, Bashir made only six appearances during his five years as religious correspondent at a conservative estimate of £40K per outing – he spent more time on air in The X Factor: Celebrity during that period – and was allowed to freelance for ITV. Nice work if you can get it.

And finally, Marina Hyde takes aim at Gillian McKeith and various other anti-lockdown twats, because face it, we all need a laugh.
Gillian seems somehow to have re-emerged, but this time as a rallying voice against pretty much any of the scientific consensus on a global pandemic. Here she is on an anti-lockdown march, and here she is this very week sharing the video of the BBC Newsnight journalist Nick Watt being hounded through the streets by aggressive and menacing anti-lockdown protesters on Monday. Gillian’s brothers and sisters in arms in this include the likes of Right Said Fred, distracted actor Laurence Fox, rapidly unspooling quackademic Naomi Wolf, GB News baby blimp Dan Wootton and the photographer Laura Dodsworth, whose pandemic book A State of Fear is 1. a bestseller and 2. a load of old conspiracist cobblers.

Marina Hyde on the "hopeless" Hancock debacle:

Why it suits Boris Johnson to have a cabinet of all the hopeless
These days I have taken to spending a lot of time in the MailOnline comments section (present but not involved), and down there the strongly prevailing view of Cummings is that he is a complete rat and so disloyal as to render anything he says immediately discountable. Outside the Westminster bubble that he’s so fond of pricking, these outpourings from the god of mischief are currently being roundly ignored. Or to put it another way, the public don’t want to be told they need their eyes tested by the little boy who cried eye test.

Mail readers are a fickle lot, when everyone brought into DomCum was the genius behind Brexit, and his “hard rain” threat against the Civil Service, he could do no wrong and they lapped up every utterance

My favourite was when Dom started threatening the Army general staff.

Marina looks at football, and the inconsistency behind isolation rules, elite sporting events, and how you're treated depending on your wealth.
