    I fear it'll now get swept under the carpet. Cabinet will respond to media questions saying that durham police have investigated and decided no further action will be taken and that's the end of the matter.

    I think a precedent has been set that minor breaches wont be punished. Therefore I might go comit a minor breach by sitting in my parents garden.

    Durham police have found that there was a minor breach of lockdown in his drive to Barnard castle. Couple of thoughts on that 1) feels like a cop out. They dont want to go against the government too much but to clear him completely would anger the public. 2) if his trip to durham wasnt unlawful then the guidelines were unclear and confusing 3) no further action because he didnt break social distancing to me could lead to a lot of fines being challenged as people have been fined for coming to the lake district and going for walks as a single household. What now for the government who said he did absolutely nothing wrong?

    Those committees always are a bit tame. I remember watching a public accounts committee, I had been involved in an audit of the issue in hand so had a good grasp of all the wrong doings and who could have done what better. The questions from PAC were tame, possibly looked pokey from the outside but we'd given way harsher criticisms and questions to the exec than the PAC did God help us if you ever end up on a Jury.

    He did break laws though 1) he went back to work after rushing home to his wife who was displaying symptoms 2) he drove to durham. Using the vulnerable child exemption, is for children at risk of abuse, as has been pointed out here 3) he was worried about his eye sight but still drove, that's an offence regardless of covid. Point two I agree people need to do what is best for their family. If the guidelines dont allow you to do that I'd forgive joe bloggs for breaking them. But if you wrote the rules and they turned out to be crap you should be accountable for that as well. You keep saying "that's what happens in politics" I know, thats my issue. Do you think that just because something happens that makes it right? I'm not disputing whether or not it happens I'm saying I'm sick of it and we as a nation should push back a little so maybe we wont get pissed on all the time. On whether or not you have evidence. Do you not even have the slightest doubt in his account. On easter sunday and his wife's birthday, he decided to go on a test drive (despite the fact his wife can drive) and just so happened to end up at one of the nicest parts of the north east (possibly with the exception of durham). You're happy with that explanation and dont think theres anything suspicious in that?

    You do realise the complete contradiction you've posted here?

    Atleast he knows nando's is down with the kids rather than politicians of the past who may have talked about youngsters going down to the local disco and dancing to the hit parade.

    Purely guessing but I reckon Jenrick had no say in the matter and was told by Johnson / Cummings to push it through. Like alot of the cabinet, he doesnt loom to have a lot of spine.

    We need to move on from this and focus on rebuilding the economy and saving lives.

    1. I think at the liaison committee they were the right amount of both. I think obviously they should be focused on restarting the economy. However MPs being distracted for 20 mins on a different topic isnt going to grind the civil service, who will be doing the grunt work on developing plans, to a halt. Counter question - do you think maybe if Cummings hasnt done anything wrong, Johnson should clear up the couple of gaps in his story which would allow the MPs to drop it and move on to other things. "Where were you on the night of the murder" Example 1 "just drop it i didnt do it" -results in long drawn out investigation Example 2 "I was at the cinema, here's my credit card statement and CCTV footage to back it up" results in a short sharp conclusion. 2) Possibly. People are already starting to ignore lockdown and do what they want and using Cummings as an excuse. People may not comply with the new track and trace regime. If this then leads to a second wave and we have to go back into lockdown again, that's the economy tanked again. Referring back to an earlier point that riding the storm is just what happens in politics, are you happy with that? Do you not think people should be held accountable for their actions? Question to you - given that this mob have lied a lot and massaged figures, why are you so keen to beleive their account of the cummings saga?

    It's actually surprisingly in-touch for a tory MP.

    The refusal to answer any more questions on cummings and just "move on" says it all. He was asked which specific allegations he believed to be false and just refused to answer it.

    Does that make it 40 MPs now?

    Doesnt make it right. By that logic we should stop helping domestic abuse victims - women get beaten all the time, that just what happens.
