I was surprised to see a headline today saying that Spain are opening up their borders to holidaymakers in July. I suppose driving there and spending your time socially distanced at the beach isn't too bad though.

Piers Morgan :spit: is tweeting that the sister lives in London, not even Didcot. (RIP Didcot Power Station :cry: )
I think his wife’s sister lives in London. The woods he was spotted in are about a mile from my house :eek:

Seems like he had plenty of people around who could have taken the child if absolutely necessary. But unless he and his wife were both ill to the extreme at the same time then there is just no excuse.

If they were so ill they couldn't possibly provide basic care for their child then they were indisputably too ill to drive hundreds of miles.

Of course it's all obviously bullshit, but then Vote Leave blatantly lied and broke the law, he's never stopped lying about anything since and there's never been any consequences - only reward. Why would he care how full of holes his story is now? He seems to control the twitter feed of every cabinet minister.

A few gammons waking up to how much of a wankstain their manipulator is feels like a hollow victory right now.

I love that the press kept the second visit back. Brilliantly played.

I love that too. Although I read something about being wary of witnesses that come out of the woodwork as they are often plants and the accused will have irrefutable evidence that can prove they weren’t there and thus discredit the story. But there is plenty of other evidence for the Barnard Castle visit at least.

Cummings is like sodding Rasputin.

I had to punch people out of the way at the fish & chips shop last night - they were standing outside waiting for their orders, but all right next to each other. I guess social distancing is out of vogue.

People have been able to find tweets from April and early May, that just sat there unseen, where people were asking why Cummings had just been seen wandering about their area. They're going viral now. Looks like at least locally this has been chattered about for a while.

About an hour ago Pippa Crerar responded to Dowden's petulant "End of story" comment with "I'm not sure it is, though. Is it?", so here's hoping there's a dramatic finale tomorrow.

Surely if the government wants to keep any credibility Cummings has to go now? Allowing him to stay doesn’t only show double standards but also that Johnson is a weak leader.

Another aspect to this is that the rest of us were warned about travelling in case we broke down and needed assistance, and because we would potentially put extra strain on the NHS in the travelled-to area. Ok, neither of those things happened to Cummings, but both could have done.

Exactly morgs- whichever angle you look at this from, it is wholly unjustified. It was not allowable within the rules as presented to us at the time and which have been incredibly well adhered to, accepted with stoicism and good humour, at great emotional and physical cost to us all, and to pretend any single element of this was ok, let alone the whole scenario put together, is gaslightjng s nation. I think that's what offends me most. Its pretty infuriating that he did it in the first place, but to pretend it was ok all along rather than the go with the 'sorry, bad judgement, made a mistake ' line*? Fuck. Off.


*he still should've resigned, but y'know.

I almost feel sorry for Grant Schapps going out defending Cummings on Marr again but he is absolutely fucking shameless!
