Dominic Cummings is the guy in the bad suit sitting at the back who has some connection with the credit hire company.

Sometimes I think you’re a dream.

You can always churn the goods out.

We can depend upon you.

Clicking in the day, flashing in the night, your computer is shining brightly.

Some people say you’ve a mind of your own, and I think that’s very likely.
