Hancock said he was “speechless” and added: “I think he took the right decision to resign.”

nice to see ministers being consistent in their responses 


 

oh, hang on a minute. that was when Prof Ferguson did it. Seems it’s not a resigning matter for Tories when one of their own team do it. 
 

well, at least they’re consistent in showing hypocrisy, dishonesty, and contempt for those they are meant to be leading.

Again. Cummstains turning up where they shouldn't. Further embarrassment, and this time the police had to intervene. The shame!

No surprise that another member of this shambles is a hypocrite. Entitlement culture pervades.....

they operate under different law as they are serving higher principles.  Keeping to the law would just hinder them in some way

I wish someone would get rid of them all

Ferguson didn't have the virus. If I can't go for a walk on the moors because I might twist my ankle, might have a car crash etc. etc....?

Shove off Cummings!

Yes every MP and civil servant who travelled from their second home in Covid hotspot London must resign too. Many breached lockdown to do it. Sack them also.

mind you, it's only a continuation of the level of honesty we saw from Vote Leave and from Farage before there was even a Vote Leave campaign

We got the government "The People" asked for and later this year we'll get the no-deal "the people" asked for

Current BBC headline:

"Cummings lockdown trip 'was essential', says No 10"

And they wonder why people think they're now little more than a government mouthpiece...

Thing is: Cummings isn't an MP ; he isn't a member of the tory party either. He's just an enormous genius... apparently.

Yes.  And thank goodness his enormous genius was enough to bring about our exit from the EU eh?  Thereby freeing us all from being ruled by unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats.

They are superior beings. It's like Trump.

Bojo got the virus because he went around ignoring social distancing, visiting hospitals, shaking hands with others. He seemed to think someone like him wouldnt be impacted by a plebs virus.

They really do believe they are just different to regular people and the rules dont apply to them.

tory MP was an alternative to making up your own rules - both ways to get on in modern post-eu britain!

he was drawing a public salary too I suppose to be breaking the rules!
