    Re: sacked

    I wonder how many people have actually been injured in sack races, or 3 legged races? Probably got more chance being run over going to school.

    Going to school is such a nasty dangerous thing, I reckon XRunner is probably right.....

    Re: sacked

    I would have thought that negotiating the school entrance through the mass of poor and hastily parked cars moving around is far more hazardous than running in a soft old sack.
    If only children could be wrapped up in cotton wool , probably the powers that be would be happy then.
    Generally going nowhere fast.

    some good old forumites on this thread

    In response Stagger I can't see it and it would be unjust in my opinion.

    Stephen Kinnock MP - apology
    Tahir Ali MP - apology
    This bloke.

    All of them lawmakers and whilst they have apologised, I tend to take them as not being heartfelt. Especially Stephen Kinnock who I felt did nothing wrong and I was disappointed he felt the pressure to apologise. It was just pressure of the pack.

    Non had COVID or family with COVID.

    They weren't away from their family support network.

    An apology should be all that was needed, but why apologise if you are satisfied you followed the guidance in the first place - it would surely only be a false one.

    To drive from London to Durham when lock down guidance was in effect was wrong.

    It was NOT essential travelling.

    Also to claim that police had not been involved when both his father and the Durham constabulary both claim differently.

    Would be see ya later time for me. No place for hypocrites in times like this.

    You have to be careful Trevor.
    The claim initially was that the police spoke to Dom Cummings. That wasn't true and his Dad has acknowledged that he contacted Durham Police due to concerns over the situation, not the other way around.

    If one of my kids called and said they needed me, I'd be there.

    I know I said I was off back to the occasional lurk, but now even the Daily Mail are against them.

    I couldn't resist.

    The BBC showing its impartiality again (not) by continuing to orchestrate the sacking of Dominic Cummings. Some of the angles they are coming from are so childish. And yes, not a word about around a dozen photographers shoulder to shoulder outside his house this morning. One rule for one......

    But in contrast, not a peep about important matters like hundreds of illegal immigrants crossing the channel every day aided and abetted by the French who are escorting some of the boats and handing them over to our Border Farce.
    Now that should be headline news.

    Don't hear anything about it from other party's either.
    Their silence is deafening.
