    No, it's generally when anyone in politics does something that appears hypocritical (or could be twisted to appear as such).

    It's like when someone points out that Jeremy Corbyn has a house that's worth a lot of money.
    Or that Kier Starmer owns a field that "could be worth £10million if he built 20 houses on it and sold them all"

    So, it's not a conspiracy by the media against an unelected bureaucrat, but standard practice.
    It's a bit snowflakey that it's only now that there are complaints - is it because it's DC that there's Wailing?

    You sound like a chav parent defending their delinquent child who is a serial criminal.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

    Surely, it just points out how principled Cummings is. He is prepared to vote against something from which he can profit

    or something
