Hah, so at today's Downing Street press conference Shapps, said Cummings had not done anything wrong because he and his family had stayed in at the house after arriving at the property in Durham and didn't travel anywhere else. “The decision here was to go to that location and stay in that location,” he said. “They didn’t then move around from there.”
Well, it looks like either Shapps/Sapps and the govt are lying or Cummings is or far more likely given who they are, they are all lying because...
1. The Durham police are standing by their statement made on Friday.
2. "Devastating new claims have emerged that Dominic Cummings further breached the lockdown rules, as Downing Street came under sustained pressure to fire the prime minister’s most senior adviser." https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... are_iOSApp_

What spin are they going to give this then now?

My m-i-l died in hospital from CV related respiratory collapse with no family allowed to visit while this piece of human shit was swanning around the country, carrying the virus, because he felt he was above his own rules.

What a truly execrable example of the most venally self-entitled attitude that emanates from what is laughably called the government. Apologists for the weasel should hang their heads in shame. Surely the pretence that these creatures - Cummings, Johnson et al - give a crap about anyone other than themselves can no longer be hidden from anyone but the lickspittle maggots who cheerlead this cess-pit of amorality.

Too far?

Understandable. My sympathies to you and your wife jsks.
I never thought when I read about this last night that it was insignificant, I would like to see Cummings lose his job but this goes further than that as you say it is also about the others today that tried to protect him. It is important because Johnson give his backing and unconditional support to Cummings today so he will need to think if his position is tenable depending on what he knew about this new news story and the lies that have been told, it could be that significant.

No not too far at all. Quite restrained considering your personal grievance.
The current Tory administration, in terms of lack of integrity, are aligned with the despot leaders in places like Venezuela and Brazil.

Even more disappointing but not surprising was the performance of BBC's Kuenssburg of radio 4 this morning, supposedly giving impartial political comment on the matter. Sounded like she had a gun at her head as she literally read out the Tory's line of defence verbatim, without questioning it's credibility. Seems like Bojo has the Beeb well and truly on the payroll.

Not at all.

Sorry for your loss James. Condolences to your good lady.
All orders were now issued through Squealer or one of the other pigs. Napoleon himself was not seen in public as often as once in a fortnight.

sorry for your loss. Sadly I think Boris's handlers have by the short and curlies and don't want their man removed. Probably threatened him with Novochock or something similar.

There are complete bunch of twats here.
Who live in France and then grumble about other countries.

Cummings and his wife became ill. There was a possibility that they would be incapacitated and their 4 year old child would be left to wander about the house, while his parents were unconscious.
They decided to go to the grandparents, placing the child with them while they quarantined in a separate house. A sensible action for any family.

Criticise the citizens of the country you live in. If you have decided not to live in the UK then STFU and leave them alone.

Obviously the thought of the sister travelling south to look after the child in case the parents became incapacitated by illness was such a revolutionary idea that it didn’t occur to any of them.

No, far better to travel the length of the country taking the child with them, possibly spreading the virus in an area that was nowhere near as badly affected as London. Pathetic.
