Cor Blimey Cummings!

  • To get to the heart of the problem, Cummings was described by David Cameron as a career psychopath.
  • I think the definition of a Sociopath is more accurate, since people of this ilk tend to be more erratic, rage-prone, and unable to lead as much of a normal life.
  • At the heart of it all, lies an overarching personality disorder I wouldn’t be surprised to find revolves around narcissism.
  • According to the Mayo Clinic, narcissistic personality disorder can be defined as: “A mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of extreme confidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism.
  • “The conflict between insecurity and self-obsession causes people with narcissistic personality disorder to be generally unhappy or disappointed when the world doesn’t offer them special favours or admiration.
  • The Clinic’s site adds: “They may find their relationships unfulfilling, and others may not enjoy being around them.”
  • “The extent to which Cummings has attacked the Prime Minister is so explicit that they reflect his contempt for him, in comparison with himself, over long period.
  • Fine, Cameron saw Cummings for what he is, Boris didn’t. Now he’s reaping the fallout from his misguided sense of trust in this emphatically weird advisor.
  • We should all know that Boris is skint from his sexual adventures. The pay of the Prime Minister is woefully inadequate anyway for the key role he has to play.
  • His role is to delegate effectively to ministers, which he does to all appearances, after taking advice from his deputies, which clearly doesn’t always include Cummings. He also appears to err on the side of caution, which is no bad thing.
  • The vitriol poured on him by this adviser is meant to wound, irreparably.
  • Given the immoral, spiteful source, I’d ignore it. Boris has responded magnificently by rising to the unexpected challenges thrown at him.
  • Cummings should have shown prudence in his contemptuous attack on the PM.
  • Disloyalty like this will surely reap its own version of justice, since it’ll be a brave man who offers him employment.
