Ignorant nonsense! 'Remainiacs' skewered as UK's Covid masterstroke 'totally vindicated'

Last year, the High Court ruled that the £550,000 contract awarded to PR firm and friend of Mr Cummings Public First was unlawful, on the basis of “apparent bias”. That ruling has now been reversed by the Court of Appeal (CoA), leading Cummings to declare himself “completely vindicated.” Mr Cummings tweeted: “No actual bias, not even apparent bias. Slam dunk.

“I and officials behaved reasonably and lawfully. Good to see common sense from CoA given emergency.”

He went on to argue that the case highlighted the need for a clear and simple emergency procurement system in the event of future disasters – as well as the dangers of EU bureaucracy in such an event.

He cited this as the reason for needing to move fast and secure the contract with Public First.

He said: “As I’ve argued since before Covid, we urgently need a serious emergency procurement system.

“The EU system killed people.

“I had to move very fast in a totally opaque legal miasma.

“Good to see Court of Appeal endorsing Vote Leave on EU procurement regulations: ‘EU system’s complex provisions might be thought to be the antithesis of urgency’. Exactly.”

He added: “Remember all the ignorant nonsense from pundits/minor social scientists/Remainiacs?”

The Cabinet Office paid more than half a million pounds to market research firm Public First in June 2020, including testing public health slogans such as “stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives”.

The company’s founders were friends of Dominic Cummings, who at the time was Boris Johnson’s chief aide.

Mr Cummings also took the opportunity to slam the director of the Good Law Project and prominent Remain-supporting lawyer Jolyon Maugham in his Twitter rant, labelling him the “Kimono-fox-killer.”

This was a reference to a bizarre tweet made by Mr Maugham in 2019, where he announced that he had begun his Boxing Day morning by clubbing a fox to death in his back garden while wearing his wife’s satin Kimono.

Mr Cummings continued to refer to Mr Maugham as “Kimono” throughout his Twitter thread, arguing that the lawyer had wasted time and money regarding “loony EU rules.”

Mr Maugham has already tweeted his intention to refute the Court of Appeal’s decision, and take the case to the Supreme Court.
