The COVID Diaries – 58 25th May
In a bizarre press conference held in the Rose Garden at 10 Downing Street, the Prime Minister’s chief advisor Dominic Cummings confirmed he had driven over two hundred miles to Durham during the period when everybody was being told to “stay at home.” He also confirmed that while “locked down” in Durham he had driven 60 miles to and from Bishops Auckland on Easter Sunday with his wife and child in the car “to test his eyesight.” Just how irresponsible is this guy?
The acting Lib Dem leader, Ed Davey, tweeted: “Cummings’ statement confirms he broke the guidelines. When millions kept to those rules.
“The PM must now terminate his contract – if he wants to regain any credibility in leading the country on dealing with the coronavirus crisis.”
