    He broke the lockdown rules which he helped put in place. Doesn't matter what make of car he has. If it was OK for him to travel why did government ministers appear on TV telling us that it was an instruction to stay at home? His actions are indefensible and if he had an ounce of decency he would resign. But this is Dominic Cummings and without him Johnson would be lost so he will no doubt get away with it. A classic case of Johnson and his mates telling the rest of us to "do as we say not as we do". Totally and utterly indefensible.

    and ultimately the guy in charge of all this is the Prime Minister Boris Johnson - remember him? When Cummings went off to the other end of the country taking the virus with him, Boris Johnson was still working from Downing Street. It’s inconceivable that he didn’t know where his right arm was. Hes the next in line.

    I like how Shapps has no idea of the facts that put Cummings in the wrong, but he's right across the stuff that gets him off....what a bunch of shysters?

    Couple of things that jump out to me: 1) Matt Hancock the Health Minister has come out in support of 'Dom', undermining all the advice he's been giving throughout this crisis. Who advised the Health Minister to tweet his support for Cummings? Thats just amateurish, you let Gove and Sunak do that, not the bleeding Health Minister. 2) Kier Starmer hasn't said a word that I know of and why would he? The Tories are doing a great job of destroying themselves

    The witness who said he saw him (a retired chemistry teacher, Mr Lee) actually took note of the registration number of the vehicle the guy (with a woman and child) got into. If it's established it is Cummings car then he is bang to rights (again).

    I always try to make a point if treating people with respect, even if I believe they're a gobshite, its served me extremely well over the years. Cummings treats most people with disrespect, he's a bully and arsehole by all accounts. This morning we see the likes of Steve Baker from ERG and several other Tory back benchers wade in to help give him a kicking. I wonder, as Cummings munches of his avocado on rye, if he wishes he'd been a bit more respectful when dealing with these elected members.

    For goodness’ sake Chaddy! He drove 260 miles with symptoms, in a car with children. He had friends and family in London that could have helped him out. He’s also since been outed as having been there twice! A sage scientist that had been caught breaking the lockdown rules resigned. So, Cummings by rights, should have been sacked. He helped create the lockdown rules and doesn’t even abide by them himself. You can’t defend the indefensible.

    I'm not sure what your point is with this post.

    The question is, could he and his family travel to Durham without refuelling? Assuming they went by car, they probably had to stop somewhere, refuel, stretch their legs and go to the toilet. That would theoretically expose others at the motorway services. If they went by train, then they definitely exposed others. Therefore it is likely Cummings broke the rules and risked spreading the virus like the other figures who have resigned. Of course the Tories will not sack him as they have different rules for their friends, and their voters will seek to make excuses on message boards. Only scientists get thrown under the big red bus [until Matt Hancock gets made the scapegoat].

    The thing is we are both the same in that we are big football fans and obviously want it back as soon as it is possible. The problem is you seem to be unable to see past that desire in terms of using any flawed and one sided logic to support that desire. For example thousands of tests for non key workers playing football you staunchly defend because it helps to get back football, whereas one solitary test for another non key worker who you despise outrages you. You use all of the countries who have or plan to restart their leagues as a precedent to support your desperation to get football back on in this country and remain blissfully ignorant to those countries that have null and voided their season. You also have repeatedly displayed a lack of empathy and ability to understand others and their different opinions so it is unsurprising that you assume and state unequivocally that viewing figures would go up. You are IMO in denial as to how diluted an alternative behind closed doors football is. For example, if Rovers managed to launch a genuine unlikely play off push do you think your feeling would be anything similar to if it happened in normal times in front of fans? I know it wouldnt to me and indeed the normal elation would probably be replaced by a mixture of detachment and even irritation that when a rare season of success comes about, we can not enjoy it at the time and even the reward of playing in a higher league would be behind closed doors too. Take Liverpool, they are desperate I am sure to clinch the title but even if and when they do, it will be anticlimatic and the expected feeling of joy and elation will be almost totally removed. I am not claiming that I am so rigid in my opinion that I would cut my nose off to spite my face and refuse to watch out of principle. I think that perhaps for flawed financial reasons that the current mindset is to get football back in any form as soon as possible. I personally think the mindset should be to play as little sanitised, half arsed behind closed doors football as possible. But ultimately months into a lockdown, I will still watch it passively as something to do even if it is not with the usual strong passion and interest.

    It’s a political decision by Starmer. He wants to give no opportunity for the Conservatives to blame Labour for not accepting the referendum result. He’s decided to let them sink on the impossibility of getting any sort of sensible deal by December. He can just sit on the sidelines and be able to say that he has taken them at their word that they can get this deal done.

    So, you're child is probably asymptomatic because both parents are Covid positive, and you want the grandparents to step in when they are the most vulnerable in society? Bonkers and goes against all rules. Why not just agree with the world Chaddy and admit Cummings is a shyte who thinks he's superior to you and I.? Don't understand you.

    Johnson’s Covid disaster 1. Ignore WHO and reports in al the media, scientific press and own briefing documents 2. Don’t quarantine arrivals ignoring the fact that everyone else is doing (except Trump) 3. Don’t buy PPE or ventilators after having ignored Cygnus and privatised the whole fricking thing at the start of a pandemic 4. Delay lockdown when everyone else has done it and there is already compelling evidence elsewhere in the world that early lockdown is highly effective 5. Don’t test & trace despite overwhelming evidence that this is the only way to control it absent a vaccine 6. Discharge C19 patients to care homes ignoring the FACT that the elderly are the most vulnerable 7. Let 62,000 people die 8. Exit lockdown early with nothing properly in place to manage the virus- missed test targets, tracers only just being recruited, app mired in corruption controversy 9. Let Cummings off again, send out half the Cabinet to look total tools, carry on hiding

    Don’t you reckon it’s weird how all his London based mates stuck up for him after all this emerged, but they weren’t so quick to offer childcare to prevent him travelling 260 miles north?

    Actually it isn't. Democracy is a system of government by the whole population or all eligible members of state, typically through elected representatives. (Well Google puts it that way, more concisely than I would.) The right to have an opinion is called free speech. Now, as I have explained numerous times before, that means that whilst you can say whatever you like that: 1) does not make it a valid opinion, or means it needs to be treated as unchallengeable (remember the moon is made of cheese example?) 2) does not make that opinion morally correct (remember the racism example?) Now for a poop ton of reasons I can't be bothered to explain (partly because they are obvious, partly due to the effort involved) your post falls way short on both grounds of validity and morality. Maybe when I'm not up to my eyes in essays I'll spell it out but let's not pretend free speech legitimises your opinion.

    Defense of the indefensible. What a surprise. Clearly counter to regulations and you do yourself no credit by trying to defend it.

    If the PL didn’t buy PSC stock do you think it would be thrown away? I find it saddening that some organisations are going out of their way to put money ahead of people. I just can’t understand why ordinary folk condone such despicable behaviour just because they like football.

    Absolutely. Rochina gets referred to derisively here as a "Carlos Kickaball" but there's no doubt the guy had talent. When he had a run in the Championship. his output was decent, and teams would double-mark him, freeing up space for other players. Think he suffered from playing under too many conservative managers.

    I entirely agree Gav but as somebody wrote about him last week 'when the going gets tough, Boris gets going'.
