    Trying to conflate the Cummings case with those other cases is just laughable. There’s nothing ‘vague’ about ‘stay home, save lives.’ Especially when applied to Cummings’ particular circumstances. Here’s prominent lawyer, David Allen Green:

    “For Cummings to stay after Ferguson and Calderwood were forced to resign for less, demonstrates that the normal rules of politics have ceased to apply to the extent where it is now anything goes.”

    Here’s legal author and barrister,’The Secret Barrister’:

    “Given that there is now evidence of repeated breaches, which Cummings contests, there is a possibility of a criminal prosecution.”

    Here’s long-standing Tory MP, Sir Roger Gale:

    “While as a father and as a grandfather I fully appreciate Mr Cummings’ desire to protect his child. There cannot be one law for the Prime Minister’s staff and another for everyone else. He has sent out completely the wrong message and his position is no longer tenable.”

    The only politicising and ‘dubious sources’ is coming from WrexhamUser.

    AMA Express – Thanks for the list. Please now answer the remainder of the questions…..

    I think you need to calm down a bit matey. You’re acting like an old headmaster that I had no respect for.

    TimRegency: The problem with the policing of the regulations is people such as yourself being unable to distinguish between government advice and what is written into the law/ health regulations. Government advice is ‘stay home, save lives’, but please delve a little bit deeper and look at the legislation and how it should be policed:

    The examples that you provide are merely opinions collected by you to support your cause. Has the concept innocent until proven guilty been lost? Is that the world you want to live in? If he is proven guilty then he should resign. However,leave your job because of opinions about you made by sections of the main stream media press and those with an axe to grind?

    AMAExpress: It says to me that you either cannot answer them, or don’t want to do so because it undermines your arguments!

    Rule of law is over – as long as you are acting on instinct you can flout lockdown and do whatever you please. Any police try to stop you just get them to refer to Boris Johnson’s directive to the nation on actions of Cummings. Absolute disgrace.

    Didn’t a Welsh labour minister or assembly member whatever they are called now, also break the lockdown rules and keep his job.

    A ‘tu quoque’ argument.

    He had some chips on a walk, so getting food and doing exercise. What he didn’t do was drive to Durham on several occasions, one of which whilst apparently infected with Coronavirus, stopping at service stations and meeting with family members not from his household.

    Al this is showing is that Dominic Cummings has some real stories he could tell about Boris and other Cabinet Ministers that the politicians cant afford for him to be booted out. The very papers that are hounding him now would pay a small fortune for the ‘Inside Number 10’ story.
    This is not going to go away and will probably stop when Dominic Cummings has been given a real big fat cheque to either keep silent or to spill the beans.

    Absolutely Derek. This is what they tory boot lickers on here cannot see (or more likely choose to ignore). This isn’t just about a senior government aide blatently ignoring the rules we’ve all had to follow, it’s yet another example of do as we say not as we do and the utter contempt of which the tories hold the general public.
    More worrying however is that a non elected bureaucrat has clearly got an enormous amount of control over senior government and evidently even the PM. This is a very disturbing development and people should be worried.
