The recent scandal of the Prime Minister’s senior advisor potentially (we still have to say that for legal reasons) breaking lockdown rules has shaken up PM Boris and his government.
Long story short, Cummings potentially broke lockdown rules as he drove his wife and son 260 miles from their home while infected with coronavirus, apparently to seek the support of his relatives.
Fresh evidence is emerging that this potentially wasn’t the only time he left, as the BBC stated that:
“The Observer and Sunday Mirror are now reporting he was seen a second time in the North East, after recovering from his own Covid-19 symptoms and returning to work in London. – No 10 said the story is “inaccurate”.”
Furthermore, in the same report:
“the Observer and the Sunday Mirror said witnesses reported seeing Mr Cummings in Barnard Castle, more than 25 miles from Durham, on 12 April.
On 14 April, he was seen back at work in London. According to the papers, he was seen again in Houghall Woods near Durham on 19 April.
Mr Cummings is yet to respond to the new claims.”
The Government response to this was more swift than to, for example, the pandemic that has taken thousands of lives.
Cabinet ministers flocked to Cumming’s aid. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps justified the adviser’s trip, saying he “stayed in the same place” and was seeking support with childcare.
Downing Street said: “Yesterday the Mirror and Guardian wrote inaccurate stories about Mr Cummings – “Today they are writing more inaccurate stories including claims that Mr Cummings returned to Durham after returning to work in Downing Street on 14 April… We will not waste our time answering a stream of false allegations about Mr Cummings from campaigning newspapers.”
Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove tweeting: “Caring for your wife and child is not a crime.”
Health secretary, Matt Hancock, tweeted that it was “entirely right” for Cummings to drive from London to his parents’ house in Durham
Chancellor Rishi Sunak tweeted “Taking care of your wife and young child is justifiable and reasonable, trying to score political points over it isn’t.”
Dominic Raab tweeted: “It’s reasonable and fair to ask for an explanation on this. And it has been provided: two parents with Coronavirus, were anxiously taking care of their young child. Those now seeking to politicise it should take a long hard look in the mirror.”
Victoria Derbyshire in her recent tweet reminded everyone how Dominic Raab blocked her for exposing his hypocrisy a while back:
As this news story exploded, many people had quite a lot to say.
Firstly, Ann Soubry called Boris “an established charlatan” over this scandal in her tweet:
Piers Morgan exposed had a few things to say too:
In a future inquiry, which is seemingly more likely to happen over the horrible handling of this crisis by the current Government in general, would this crisis alone bring potential criminal proceedings towards Dominic Cummings, or to the Prime Minister and any Cabinet Ministers who publicly defended Cummings’ potential illegal actions, thus creating confusion over lockdown rules and causing a spike in Covid-19 cases and ushering in a second wave?
If members of the Government, knowingly and publicly defending illegal actions by the senior advisor of the Prime Minister – what are the consequences? Do we live in an actual Democracy, where the actions of our Government during the biggest public health crisis in living memory – in a century, are held accountable, because even if this Dominic Cummings was 100% innocent and acted within the letter of the law, what about EVERYTHING else?
Care Home deaths
NHS staff deaths over a lack of PPE
A decade of underfunding the NHS and increasing backdoor-privatisation
Letting in 18 MILLION PEOPLE FROM ABROAD with ZERO CHECKS SINCE MARCH (it should be the biggest scandal but it’s not talked about enough!) what’s the point of the lockdown if anyone can come to the UK without being checked??!?!?!?!
Closing schools very late on the Pandemic stage, they shut on the 23rd March rather than weeks earlier
The lack of support for the Self-Employed
Let’s not forget Boris’s ridiculous statements, one being, for example, on the 3rd March:
““I was at a hospital the other night where I think there were a few coronavirus patients and I shook hands with everybody, you will be pleased to know, and I continue to shake hands.”
The double counting of thousands of tests, as recently exposed by the Telegraph – not to mention that the numbers are just tests issued, not carried out.
The biggest death toll of Europe
The list goes on, and on, and on
The Government has had some success, but comparing Boris to Churchill and connecting this to the War effort of WW2 is laughable – if anything, Boris should be compared to Neville Chamberlin, as he seems to be appeasing this virus with his unclear statements, resulting in public transportation being jam-packed in London again and social distancing measures collapsing as thousands, if not millions flock to the Parks and Beaches in huge groups.
There is No Justice as they’ll get away with any of their wrong doings, as we seem to have ceased to be an actual democracy.
Clap all you want, but don’t be surprised if these clowns stay in government and dismantle the NHS and slag off key workers as low-skilled.
