Infected Cummings travelled around England with disease. Fire him now.

    Orwell once wrote “The past was alterable. The past never had been altered..."

    It remains the story of the current Cabinet in a nutshell.

    The BBC had that he drove his wife up to Durham when she had symptoms but he didn't. If that's right then it was pretty silly as he must have known the story would come out eventually. But not as bad as first reported. Maybe he actually contracted it in the car. We'll never know probably if this version is right or the earlier one.

    Innocent until proven guilty. Oh wait, that doesn't apply to the press, does it?

    Sorry to quote myself but if his wife had the virus it's clear they should have stayed put.

    I know the guy who saw him at Barnard Castle. I have no doubt he’s telling the truth. This means he returned to London then back up to Durham a little latter. Durham and the North East is now one of the highest rates of infection. Did he introduce it? Any one on this forum who try’s to defend him you should be embarrassed. I also have no doubt he travelled further North to Gillingham Castle further spreading the virus.

    Looks like they’ve got Kayleigh McEnany doing their comms in there. It’s going to get very dirty- Johnson is a man not afraid to shut Parliament unlawfully, so he’ll take on a couple of newspapers not loyal to him.

    This tweet from a member of the public on 10th May might refer to Cummings' second trip to the North East:

    If it does it corroborates the eyewitnesses in the Daily Mirror story and makes it harder for the government to maintain it's a lie.

    If it doesn't it raises the possibility that Cummings broke lockdown three times.

    Even if it was only his wife that was ill the first time it is clear that the wife should self isolate for a minimum of 7 days and the household for 14 so no excuse on that front for Gollum .
    Looks like everyone will be off on road trips next week staying anywhere you like or maybe jumping on a plane before quarantine

    This came out from Downing St in April the day after Cummings returned to work and had already been travelling around the North, carrying Covid. They’re trolling the public

    BJ is fast becoming a parody of Trump.

    IMHO, the CV has been handled and these kind of news stories show the government has favourites, is really making me question, "Are these the right people in charge of leading the Country"? Oh, and I voted for them :mad:

    Feeling betrayed.

    They are messing up nicely.Confusion, uncertain loyalties,a rumbling panic and a PM gone MIA. All coming together for Starmer.He doesn’t really need to do anything but pepper them with the questions that are answered with obvious lies.Might be time to get the popcorn!

    The Tories have rolled out one of their most professional liars on Sky to defend Cummings; Grant Shapps/Michael Green/Sebastian Fox. A man one wouldn’t even trust to tell you his own name.

    I liked the exchange between Andrew Marr and Pippa Crerar (who broke the story) just now:

    AM: So how did you get this story?

    PC: There were rumours circulating for some time and we decided to follow them up.

    It's called journalism, Andrew. Perhaps the BBC might like to try it some time?

    Why isn’t Starmer calling for Cummings resignation? Dithering? Fence sitting? Timidity? Or Realpolitik?
