and another for them,
And, surprise, surprise, Number 10 (i.e. Boris) has deemed Cumming's trip "essential"! And I worry about driving a couple of miles to give the dog a walk, and accept that I have not been able to see my daughters and grandchildren for months!
Ah, well, They seem to be able to ignore any regulations if they wish.
But it was quite legal apparently as it was the nearest baby sitter.
Don't know why Carrie could not have done the job.
I don't like or trust Cummings, I think he is evil behind the scenes and is only out to get his own way.
Always different rules for politicians or celebrities
Nor me.. I think he is the power behind the throne, what he says BJ does.
edited.. I missed a word out
When this happened in Scotland torries demanded resignations. Now apparently it’s not a crime to “care for your child and wife”
How the hell do other families manage week in week out when they don't have the luxury on calling on family for childcare, if they are unwell.. Simply because family lives too far away. Then everyone gets a dreaded bug and feel terrible such as the winter vomiting one. It's awful but you manage...
I would say I could understand this if anyone of them was hospitalised but no I can't actually as no visitors allowed. So you soldier on, like most people do, are following the blooming rules as they were laid out.
I would say the children are no way vulnerable either. It makes a mockery of those that really are. As that's what they are saying to get him off the hook.
I think it is absolutely disgusting and he should without doubt be fired (or shot at dawn).
Anyone listening to todays briefing with the Minster trying to justify what Cummings has done.
I've never seen a minister so uncomfortable during these briefings. The press just wouldn't drop their line of questioning and he was squirming to keep answering. I don't think he believed what he was saying. Cummings should resign for flouting the rules, if he doesn't then Boris should fire him, but of course he won't.
I couldn't be bothered but I watching the news bit online after and interviewing people I don't get the reasoning.
Social workers, and other support agencies are not going in to people's houses in my area unless it's absolutely crucial. All via phone calls, and video calls and they have very vulnerable children. Am not talking about at risk children, but parents who need support due to children's additional needs which they can't have. These children are vulnerable and classed as vulnerable by the government now. However they can't actually get the help they desperately need due to their guide lines.
264 miles from London to Durham. Did he manage that without taking a break or is he really a robot.
This was queried by Mirror and Guardian on 5 April and Downing Street failed to answer, the Spectator magazine won’t reply to further questions about the interview with Cummings on his coronavirus experience. It’s not a minor mistake, it’s not caring, it’s putting people at risk and frankly terrifying that these people are meant to be in charge. We need trust, clarity and to lead by example.
If there is some sort of sensible reason (though I cannot fathom what) then all ears because it’s not always clear but it’s the fudging, avoidance and excuses I find abhorrent and disgusting. Be truthful and admitting an error of judgement is better, more adult. It may gain a little respect.
And... as my husband wryly said... this is only what we know about. What other life-risking ventures have the government taken? I keep going back to this video which is still relevant because the way this virus spreads hasn’t changed - and remind myself that we are all capable of spreading this. At the time he went to Durham, he thought he has it, his wife, Hancock and Boris too. He is the jelly baby.
Imagine if he had been involved in an accident or breakdown, all the innocent people he could of infected. I am fuming that they are using childcare as a reason when they lead such privileged lives and help would of been available to them locally unlike a lot of other people.
There has been so many heartbreaking stories of dire situations people have had to endure all alone because of social distancing and he just does as he likes.
His head should be on a block outside the Tower of London.
I love the implication that this is what any loving and caring family does... whilst all the other, all the simple mortal families who stayed at home caring for their children must simply not love them enough.
That's what the government said right at the start, Don't go out in your cars as you never know if your car is going to breakdown.
Iv'e made the journey from London to Northumberland by car and he must have stopped to use a toilet. You couldn't drive all that way and not.
He looks like Mr Weasel.
And to even contemplate driving that distance, you really can't be feeling like Death warmed up exactly.
