Well well well

It is "very clear" Dominic Cummings broke the UK lockdown rules and his actions will now make policing more difficult, former Durham Police Chief Constable Mike Barton says.

Regarding the first trip, Cummings said he acted "reasonably and legally" as he travelled for childcare purposes.

Barton said Cummings' defence is "rubbish".

"The area they [the government] are going to, which mentions children, does not allow you to do what they did," he said.

"The Deputy Chief Medical Officer made it really clear that it has got to be a life-threatening issue. This was not life threatening.

"Let's not beat around bush. I am making really clear - 40 years of policing understanding the law and interpreting the law - reasonable excuse is not to do what they did."

Barton said "of course" Cummings' actions would make policing more difficult.

"What makes it really hard, not only fact Cummings did this but the fact he is completely unrepentant," Barton added.

"Not only that, but you have got a government minister yesterday, [transport secretary] Mr Shapps, making it up as he was going along simply to save the skin of an advisor to the prime minister.

"I think it is appalling."

There was a time when Mags used to post a lot on my threads commenting on the number of comments. I think that must have been it. 😂

Yes, mines.
After listening to Boris and Dominic's statements, I am happy with their explainations.

Doughnut shops are closed, mate

On the face of it that could be seen as an over-reaction but if it puts the country out its misery it is probably worth it from a productivity boost alone? Using up valuable BTUs of politicos, journos, plod, JA, corona affected families, the angry men on the Clapham omnibus and others.
