    Facts for our country show 90% of the people who have died are over 65 years old.

    How thoughtful is it delivering your covid wife to your in laws?

    As adults it's ok to have a different opinion.

    Personally I think he was wrong and told lies.

    I do accept that he was also badly treated.

    Cummings and his wife and child self isolated in a separate cottage on the family farm. Food was left outside the door. So his parents were not at risk of contracting the virus.

    What lies has he actually told?

    I can understand why some people might think he did the wrong thing, but he hasn't denied driving from London to Durham or making the round trip to Barnard Castle. I must admit I thought his reason for the latter seemed a bit strange but we don't know that he isn't telling the truth.

    We do know however that lies have been told about him, like the guy who made up seeing him in Durham on 19th April.

    He said no one from his family spoke to the police.

    His father actually did.

    He breached guidance by making a trip to the castle, for what ever reason.

    Durham Constabulary has claimed police officers did speak to Dominic Cummings’ father following Downing Street denials there was any contact with his family over his alleged lockdown breaches.

    But No 10 had said on Saturday morning: “At no stage was he [Mr Cummings] or his family spoken to about this matter, as is being reported.”

    But what was being reported wasn't true. The Guardian had said that the police had approached Cummings about breaching the lockdown rules, which wasn't the case. It was in fact Cummings' father who contacted Durham police to seek security advice and told them about his son.

    Durham police said:

    "On Tuesday, March 31, our officers were made aware that Dominic Cummings had travelled from London to Durham and was present at an address in the city.

    At the request of Mr Cummings' father, an officer made contact the following morning by telephone.

    During that conversation, Mr Cummings' father confirmed that his son had travelled with his family from London to the North East and was self-isolating in part of the property.

    Durham Constabulary deemed that no further action was required. However, the officer did provide advice in relation to security issues."


    You could say that Number 10's statement was a bit misleading I suppose but the Guardian and Mirror should be taken to task for all their inaccuracies.
