I see from the papers that Opticians are pushing to be allowed to open up again. Makes cummings sense to me.
Have to confess that I've been distracted by the cummings and goings of national politics of late so not that familiar with what has been happening locally, politically, and as I no longer buy the Dawlish Gazette (does it still exist? Thought I read somewhere that it has ceased being) I've had no information from that source. So....what has been happening politically, locally, then?
Just happened to be looking up some email addresses for our local councillors and noticed that two (Cllrs Petherick J and Petherick L) are now showing up as Independent rather than Lib Dem which was the ticket they were elected on this time last year. I know no more than that.

Why you or anyone else thinks that the continuation of Cummings in Downing Street will be a positive for your beloved Boris and his government is beyond me (and quite a few Tory MPs as well as it happens).
Ahem! I think you'll find there are prominent Leave MPs in the mix of those calling for the defenestration of Cummings. And since you mention an MP making a non essential journey there was also the case of the tory MP who did the same. Robert Jenrick The Housing, Communities and Local Government Secretary was forced to explain himself after travelling more than an hour to visit his ...
