*feeling*
naomi - // 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? //

If I think I have been exposed to a pandemic virus, and I have already put my wife and child and innocent people at risk by driving the length of the UK, and on top of that, I think I may not be safe to drive, I would either ask my wife to drive, or, if I felt I needed to test out my eyesight by driving, I would have gone round the block twice, on my own, rather than travel a considerable distance with my wife and child in the car, exposing them to further danger.

But if my reason for driving was to take my wife for a day out on her birthday, I wouldn't make up an utterly stupid and unbelievable lie about it.

Sarcasm as a diversionary tactic really is beneath you.

Oooooh!! How very wounding!!!

(LOL xx)
Still seems to be a lack of appreciation for some of where the anger is coming from. Yes, some of it is politically-motivated. But for many others it is plainly and simply because it looks, and was, hypocritical for Cummings to take this trip at the exact same time that we were being told that we "must" stay in our homes. Never mind the small print that may have provided nebulous exceptions.

Cummings is staying, that much has been clear for a while, but the anger at the hypocrisy and the lack of understanding on his and the Government's part will not. We are asked to "move on". That would be a whole lot easier if there were at least some humility or contrition from Cummings, but there will be none. The neutral and vague "may" from Durham Police neither saves nor condemns him, too -- nor does the transparent attempt to stop the Government's advisers from commenting on it. Passing comment on the potential effect of undermining the Government's messaging is clearly not political -- it matters. We need to trust the Government and we need to know that they are telling us to do the right thing, and it would be one heck of a lot easier to believe that if they are seen to be on our side and bound by the same rules they imposed on us.

That is the damage done. Calling for Cummings' head is pointless. Asking him to apologise is not.
// Nail him to a tree and pelt rotten fruit at him till we hear his name no more//

can we pull his fingernails or teeth out?

Haha. Read this. If you can. Watch for....""The enemies of British nationhood and democracy do not sleep. Their corporatist fascist plans for our permanent national destruction have been well laid. They know that Johnson and in particular Dominic Cummings are the drivers of our nation’s liberation. They will stop at nothing.""

Then look no further for the reason.

""MICHEL BARNIER has written to opposition parties informing them that the EU is open to delaying the Brexit transition period by two years. The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has penned a letter to opposition parties explaining the bloc is open to delaying the transition period by two years. ""

Yep read that again..... Barmier is "writing "to opposition leaders(interpretation ....Remainiacs) and interfering in our Parliamentary process. Cummings got back from Durham just in time.
The lefties weren't half annoyed.

Good job he didn't go for an extra walk round the castle walls or find his eyes weren't up the drive back or he might have got back just too late to save us

Succinctly argued.

My ire against Mr Cummings has always been based around his nasty arrogance in flouting rules/ guidelines, it really doesn't matter, that he helped to formulate, for what turned out to be invalid reasons.

He compounded that by having an additional jolly day out, and then having the gall to insult anyone with a grain of intelligence by concocting one of the most ludicrous stories this side of a fairy tale to hide his offence, and then having the gall to be snotty with people like me who failed to believe his nonsense, and were angry with him for his offence in dreaming that we would.

Top it off with his rigid self-righteousness and refusal to actually admit his errors and apologise, and compounded by cabinet ministers actually saying he acted with integrity -

In case anyone is unsure of what the ministers are saying about Mr Cummings -

integrity
/ɪnˈtɛɡrɪti/

noun
noun: integrity
1.
the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
"a gentleman of complete integrity"

and you have a nation of seriously annoyed people making their feelings clear.

Anyone who is trying to make this a political issue has a vested interest in simply missing the point - this is not about politics, it's about doing what is right, which apologising for being wrong.
DC went to Barnard Castle to check on SGK's research lab.
He went to Durham to confer with his sister who is on the board of IDOK, the company behind the track and trace app.

just adding to the reasons he gave for going north. :-)
