    Doubt if he'll get fined much, if at all

    I just read this, as a minor breach.. Yes 30 miles to walk in a nice spot, when dog walkers were worried to walk a couple of miles. Which was clarified as a couple of miles.

    Then stopped again.. Didn't clarify where this time for child to toilet, probably somewhere else nice, which ended up also a place for child to play. When we were not supposed to be allowing children to 'play' outside.

    That point keeps being overlooked too. He kept digging a hole everytime he spoke.

    The worse of it all, he walked away from that press conference am assuming he didn't think he could be seen smiling at the matter.. Maybe nervous, relief but he's so up his own posterior probably thought everyone believed him, after all Boris did!

    "Of those 30 000, only 10 000 have had covid-19 specified on the death certificate. While Spiegelhalter acknowledged that some of these “excess deaths” might be the result of underdiagnosis, “the huge number of unexplained extra deaths in homes and care homes is extraordinary. When we look back . . . this rise in non-covid extra deaths outside the hospital is something I hope will be given really severe attention.”"

    https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1931

    Maybe many deaths may not have Covid-19 on the certificate but happen because medical resources are required elsewhere. An indirect death?

    A lack of tests must mean inaccurate data.

    Today we are told that it is not compulsory to self isolate for 14 days but a 'civic duty' if we are tested positive. I assume this is because of 'Cummings'. If they make it compulsory he would have broken the law? I am sure it was compulsory in March to self isolate if one had symptoms.

    I don’t imagine we will find out for many years to come or hopefully sooner. Lots of things are coming out very quickly about this in the past week - not just Cummings but quarantine measure or lack of and the mess about care homes.

    Civic duty is very ambiguous isn’t it? The new guidance issues yesterday equally so. Yes yes, I know there will be people here and out there saying ‘it’s on my guidance’ but an awful lot of people take it as gospel and if it’s not safe guidance then we are all at risk... cue second wave. 800 people died in the past two days and there was no mention of the R level in the daily update.

    It was on the news yesterday that it was still between 0.7 and 0.9.

    Just been watching on the news a woman with a Down syndrome girl who was that ill she was just lying on the sofa for three days trying to look after her on her own. The more I'm hearing about what people have had to struggle with, the more I think Cummings should still go.

    Only in some areas and not in the daily briefing. Presumably where it’s higher it’s wack a mole, whatever that means. I’m sure it makes sense in Johnson’s tiny mind. On BBC scientists are saying still too high for lockdown to be eased (link posted in the other coronavirus thread).

    ‘Have I Got News For You’ last night
    Janet Street Porter: all this talk about Dominic Cummings has got us nowhere
    Ian Hislop: He hasn’t resigned yet!

    Perfectly said and very well pulled apart by Hislop (he also took Newsnight bosses to task too).

    What is your issue with the furlough scheme?

    You'd hope most people would know who their MP is as we've not long had a general election.

    This is updated regularly. Of course some areas are different, but this is overall.
