Surely that's them taking the piss? The media were filming him in London today.

On a slightly separate note, did you see the clips of the media? They were like animals around him. No social distancing between each other at all.
Check the date of the tweet Norky. Sorry, should have specified. And yes I did. Journalists are a strange breed

Cummings should be used to it since he was a journalist himself. It would be a useful regulation to ban anyone from public office who has previously been a journalist since they all have have difficulty with integrity and the difference between fact and fiction. Applied retrospectively we could rid ourselves of the bungler, Cummings and Fishface at a stroke. All liars to the core.

They'll say this was allowed on that date, you could travel anywhere in the country as long as you socially distanced.

This is where the whole thing falls down, as initially he has undoubtedly flouted the guidance if not necessarily the law when lockdown was imposed. They will now start pointing to events like this one where it was allowed as a way of saying he did nothing wrong...

And in other news (a lovely day to bury the inconvenient truth...) every single model SAGE did about the reopening of schools shows the "r" rate rising above 1 and Covid starting to spread again...

Keep up. Youre mixing Spring R with Summer R. In Summer its possible for R to be slightly above 1 if applying the Patel factor to the calculation of the infection rate. Just like the IOW app and the alert state of 4 (but lets pretend its 3) govt poicy on Covid originates from Mission Impossible - it self destructs after 3 weeks as if it never existed

Time for Boris to step in and sort this Cummings thing out, he is bound to face questions when the ‘house’ comes back anyway

HE must ascertain all the facts and whether he can defend him, if Not Cummings has to go.

We saw with Campbell what happens when an ‘advisor’ begins to control a Prime Minister, It doesn’t end well

But any Remoaners thinking this is likely to reverse the Brexit strategy they are wrong, and due for a shock

IMO the PM and his Cabinet will ensure that. Even more than before, they would suffer ‘two set backs’ If will only make them more determined to press on

Let me guess, that's the narrative in today's Daily Heil isn't it...?
Useful that John brings Brexit up since the real parallel eludes him as is the case so often on most things. That those inplementing the policy totally insulate themselves personally from its effects. And even use their position to benefit themselves or friends financially from both crises whether through allocation of contracts through directed procurement or disapplication of the law to their own actions. As is the case here. A bankrupt govt for a bankrupt country.
