Are you confusing the Chief Constable of Durham with the political Police Commissioner, retrocopy?
Tora: Barnard Castle is always heaving with tourists they come by the bus load. Its going to be impossible to find a carpark space now and I reckon specsavers will eventually get a blue plaque lol!
ff
I think not but give me a mo and I will try to get the link from the article.
I believe a former Chief Constable did day something retrocop but I can't access the link
The Guardian had a story earlier in the week, where former chief constable, Mike somebody, sounded off about DC 'breaking the rules'.
Yes.Indeed. It was the former Chief who stepped down under a year ago.Mike Barton..

As one astute political commentator pointed out - this new reaction will simply harden the stances of both sides of this argument.

I do however believe that it will ultimately strengthen the PM's position in drawing a line - it's doubtful if there is anywhere else for this to go.

Of course, Mr Cummings' reason for taking his wife for a day out by the river on her birthday as being to 'test his eyesight' is such a bizarre and frankly laughable excuse, that only someone with serious issues in relating to the real world would present it as believable - but again, it is unlikely that any action can be taken retrospectively.
I echo Naomi, at whenever, 'We can but hope'. 'May' have committed a minor breach does not constitute a blatant breach of rules. Mr.J2 and I bothered to check the 'Recommendations' very closely and read that one of the purposes for which we were allowed to leave the house was for 'exercise'. OK, fine, we continued to walk our dog twice a day. People should read the rules and not listen to interpretations.

Where did people get the idea that they were only 'allowed out' once a day for 1 hour? That never existed. I drove 57 miles each way to give my granddaughter a much wanted birthday present. She had earned it by reciting all of her tables to me down the phone. I don't break my word to a child, so it was essential to my mental health I suppose. I put the present on the doorstep, backed off and we both got a lot of pleasure in her reception of it. Then I got back in my car and drove home. I had no social contact with anyone and endangered no-one - apart from the usual driving risks of course.

This is a press feeding-frenzy, no more and inexcusable at a time when we are supposed to be pulling together.
I don’t care I don’t have a dislike for Mr Cummings but on his own admission he drove a car when he was not fit to drive .So was the police commenting on this or the fact he did not break lock down rules .B J and most of the Tory government have said he done nothing wrong fair enough I was not there so I don’t know .
The limit of an hour for exercise was uttered by a certain Mr Gove. No idea what that was based on and it's rubbish.
I walk my dog for over two hours every morning and on the first morning of lockdown I was terrified. I thought there'd be a copper on every corner and on foot in the park keeping an eye on me to make sure I didn't do more than an hour and oh the relief when I didn't see one policeman! Of course I soon got over that.
//on his own admission he drove a car when he was not fit to drive //

He didn't say that.
-- answer removed --
He said I drove 30 there and back to see if I was fit to drive oh so he did not say that nao
Quite.
He said what then ...
He didn't say he wasn't fit to drive.
naomi - // He didn't say he wasn't fit to drive. //

It's actually questionable if Mr Cummings' suitability to drive is a decision that is his to take - but of course, he obviously thinks he knows best - even if the possibility that he doesn't may have led to his death, and that of his family, and sundry other innocent people.
AH, //It's actually questionable if Mr Cummings' suitability to drive is a decision that is his to take //

What do you do when you haven't been well and aren't feel that great? Apply for another test before taking to the road?
