The hunt for "Chatty Rat" and other rats abandoning HMS BoJo:

Robert Peston: Boris Johnson 'did make bodies pile high in their thousands' comment​

There is an incredible amount of hysteria and noise being generated by the conflict between Boris Johnson and his former chief aide, Dominic Cummings. So maybe it is useful for me to share what I know about three big claims:

1) the charge that the prime minister said he would rather see "bodies pile high in their thousands" than order a third lockdown (as reported in the Daily Mail); 2) the cabinet secretary Simon Case still believes Cummings may be the "Chatty Rat" who leaked details about November's lockdown (see this morning's Times); 3) the refurbishment of the prime minister's flat was originally to be funded by Tory party donors, even though on Friday the prime minister said he had been paying for it.

BBC censored?:

BBC slammed after rewording Boris Johnson's despicable 'let the bodies pile high' quote to sound far less damaging​



Alastair Campbell - “Peter Stefanovic’s video has had 12 million views. Every day he asks BBC why will you not play these clips of Johnson in Parliament lying at dispatch box. PM’s are meant to resign if they lie at dispatch box” BBC interviewer “Do people care?”


13 million views!!!!

^Reminded me of the £3 billion or so worth of contracts awarded to his chums. Not sure if that includes the £1.5b for Palantir
