Dom Cummings, the evil gremlin is back, Dt Strangelove as the devil-in-a-box popped up at a Parliamentary Committee on Science this week, despite having zero scientific credentials in his CV. He was as welcome as Tony Blair sticking his head above the parapet to test whether his unpopularity had receded and ducking before the rotting cabbages caught him.
Denying both the oxygen of publicity is a Promethean punishment, an eternal agony which cannot be borne, so they will intrude at intervals whether wished for or not. And Cummings clearly has an addiction to what one commentator described as ‘drive-by shooting’ as he lets off a blast of coruscating invective about one poor sod or another, in this instance the hapless Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
The only real point of interest in Cummings’ reappearance is what comes next since he has a cataclysmic tr Neptune square his Mars/Pluto midpoint picking up 21st of this month running to mid April, and again September to mid October and mid January to mid February 2022. That could be personal but it does coincide with the undermining tr Neptune squaring the Sun on Boris’s Government chart. It is also marked up as a swampy patch on the Cummings/Boris relationship chart with tr Neptune opposing the composite Pluto; and on the Cummings/UK relationship chart with tr Neptune square the composite Sun. And that is followed by another dip in Boris’s popularity in the country from this June. His recent vaccine poll boost is clearly fading fast.
It never does to join too many dots together but there could be something brewing politically – whether old skeletons tumbling out of cupboards or whatever. Cummings will be in full flood from early 2022 for two years thereafter so it clearly won’t be anything that slows his progress to the outer edges of the universe and beyond to enlighten the turnip-headed peasants. More’s the pity.
