    At the time - but do you think having one of the parents with it, they should have waited until perhaps they were both in intensive care like the PM and others and then their 4 year old autistic child may have been in the hands of Islington Social Services?
    I'm sure you don't from what I've seen of your posts over the years, and like you, I'd have been at the service of my children and grandchildren if they needed me, regardless of the lockdown.

    Timing is brilliant. 4pm on a hot and sunny bank holiday.

    How many other announcements by the government have been at 4pm???

    Listening to the questions from supposedly senior members of the press to Dominic Cummings it is obvious that they had planned them before his press conference but still continued to ask them.

    They obviously have no interest in the truth and are just continuing nothing more than a witch hunt against a decent man.

    Absolute arseholes. They should be embarrassed.

    I did not know much about him before this but he has certainly gone up in my estimation.

    I thought he came across extremely well - but - but - he does not accept that as far as many are concerned, he broke the rules that they have been following, often to their detriment. The eye sight test drive - a bit odd for an intelligent person to think that such a test would be appropriate - presumably if you don’t crash you are safe.

    I have certainly changed my ideas about him as a person, but that does not mean he was right. The shouting/yelling mob outside his house should go home and leave him and his family in peace.

    Will he survive? We will see ….

    All sorts of rumours and theories flying around on Facebook and elsewhere. He may be many things but one thing is for sure, DC loves to play strategy games and all this may be yet another. Nothing is what it seems with this one.

    He mounts a very plausible defence which would be fine if he were the man in the street....but he is not. He is in the public eye and should have come to different arrangements. Surely the privilege of government service could have provided assistance for his particular circumstances??

    He came across quite well, not least because he didnít fit the profile of a ďmonsterĒ that our liberal media have presented him as. Iím still not totally convinced that he did the right thing. Perhaps he has legally complied but there must be many people in the same position as Cummings and his wife who didnít realise such an option was available to them given the relentless stay at home message.

    What did shine through was the outright hostility of the media representatives, who clearly hate Cummings with a passion and not for his actions in going to Durham.

    It is nice when we can all have differing views and still be pleasant about it. No bitching or name calling is wonderful.

    Thank you ��

    So the new government slogan is 'Be Reasonable' replacing 'Be Alert' which nobody seemed to understand
