I think the other thing that Starmer should now - immediately, as soon as possible - be doing is to make a long clear statement about how important it is to continue to take care despite the hypocrisy of the government - that we can continue to take care of each other even if they will only ever care about taking care of their own. Time to lead.

So sorry to hear that. Can only imagine what you and others in your situation must be going through.

I really can't see how he can survive this. All that public sympathy that he had when he was ill - all gone.

He might get away with it if Cummings resigns and admits that he lied to the PM.

It's day purpleton-thrice-times-cold through the looking glass, and Weston-Super-Mare hospital has closed its wards to new arrivals because of an influx of Covid patients.

Cummings' family and some of the commentariat are pushing the line that they must understand that he'd just lost his uncle. Firstly - well, in context, why does that make you any different from anybody else in all of this who did what they were told to do. Secondly, his uncle was Lord Justice Laws and he died in London. Why does that mean Cummings having to go to Durham?

Good morfternoon.

According to 10 Downing Street, Dominic Cummings will be making a public statement and taking questions later today (Sky TV news).

Seriously, it’s well worth the trip in normal times, but the Bowes Museum will be closed and he’ll have seen it before. School trip if nothing else.

While we wait here's my first bloom of the year, just popped open this morning.

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

An Oriental lily I think.

One of the few bits of Cummings story that so far has remained consistent is that his wife had symptoms of Covid-19 prior to the decision to move to Durham, it's been repeated many times, so it's a bit weird that this seems to have changed with her now not suffering the classic symptoms of a temperature or persistent cough at all but was, in fact, being sick. How did all the people who have previously told this true and moving story of a family facing adversity manage to get such a basic fact wrong? Now we know his wife was being sick, the 5 hour car journey makes so much more sense, who doesn't think driving across the country when being violently ill is the best option.

Hmm....I suspect I'm not the only one who thinks driving 30 miles with a 4 year old in the car when you have concerns about whether you can see properly is somewhat irresponsible and reckless. When I experienced my first ever migraine aura I was at work. Not knowing what it was, I got my husband to come pick me up rather than drive home myself in case it came back because, weirdly, I've always considered driving with impaired vision to be a bit on the dangerous side.

Edited to change danger to dangerous, which I could swear I typed. Ruddy predictive text.

Hands up if anyone believes he drove to a local beauty spot 30 miles away to test his eyesight.

Fuck off Cummings you utter piss taker.

This press conference has changed nothing, would he seriously have us believe that there was nobody in the entirety of London who could have left food at his door? And I notice now the story has changed about his wife's symptoms when they drove up to Durham, previously we've been led to believe she had Covid 19 symptoms but because driving someone with Coronavirus the length of England sounds realy bad he's casting doubt on that. Everything he said has been carefully massaged and managed to paint him in the best light possible and yet ultimately he's admitted to doing the very things he was accused of. His only defense is that we understand that he made a judgement that the vast majority in this country have not made, and that is to break the lockdown rules if they aren't convenient. And he did it twice.

My dad got sent home by the police for driving less of a distance than Cummings did for his eyesight test at exactly that time, there are plenty of country roads in Durham Cummings could have driven around but he just happened by sheer chance to find himself in Barnard Castle by the river? Fuck off.

There was absolutely nothing in government messages at the time about 'exercising your judgement', the message was simple, stay at home, in fact it wasn't even a message it was an instruction and no amount of quoting a poorly phrased loophole can distract from the fact Cummings disregarded his own government's instruction because it didn't suit him.

If he thinks his performance is going to get him and Johnson out of the hole they've dug for themselves then he's got another thing coming.

At the very least he should have apologised but he couldn't bring himself to do it.

Arrogant prick.

It's kinda weird that the same people who were sounding off about "taking back control" and "It's democracy innit!" seem to be so keen on defending an unelected No 10 special adviser.
