If out there, is an overpaid reporter in papers or television and read this websight.
May I say i am not angry or in a rage over this mans visit to his parents home.
So please stop infering that i am.
You may not be angry, but the comment below sums up why what he did is of such significance.
"Stuart Beer, an insurance broker from Poole, said there was no incentive for the general public to follow Government advice if officials did not "practice what they preach".
He said: "Cummings helped set the rules, so he has got to abide by them. If he hasn't, he should go. If the Government are not practicing what they preach, why should the rest of us? How can they complain about people who break the lockdown?"
I feel quite angry that the little weasel thinks we'll fall for the guff about his eyesight, how thick does he think we are? Boris isn't going to sack him, it would be like Emu firing Rod Hull.
When several thousand visitors landed on North Devon beaches last week , some staying overnight .with no
toilet facilities. Who i wonder who caused more danger.
Agree it's stupid but BoJo said it's okay to do it. It's not the same thing.
All those visitors to North Devon happened after the lock down rules were relaxed (not that they should have been relaxed in the way that they were imho). Cummings' transgression took place when we were all (or so we thought) under much tighter lockdown.
At the very best he bent the rules so far that they almost snapped.
He is guilty as charged of breaking two rules at least.
1. Going back to 10 Downing Street after he had been home to see to his sick wife. Who may or who may not have had Coronavirus. But he should have stayed at home just in case.
2. Driving for exercise to Barnard Castle some 30 mins drive away from where he was staying in Durham. And one does wonder at his judgement in taking his wife and son on that trip given that he says wasn't sure how good his eyesight was.
As I've pointed out above - given that he is such a key player in the government (some might say the puppet master) - these transgressions totally undermine trust in any messaging that now comes from the government.
@Flo - Bojo said it's okay to do something stupid? Well, well. Fancy that.
Boris's decision over this self righteous sausage will haunt him to the next general election.
The faux media outrage is all to do with Brexit and getting rid of Cummings. The trade negotiations are on the verge of collapse, and an extension to the transition must be agreed by next month otherwise we leave without a deal in January. This is a last-ditch attempt by Remoaners to force yet another Brexit delay. It's very telling that Gina Miller came out of the woodwork yesterday to stick her oar in. This smacks of a Remain conspiracy.
A major faux pas by Cummings more like.
