    Just watching Cumming‘s press conference.

    What a pathetic and arrogant little liar!
    And of course no regrets and press making this up.

    That’s him summed up to perfection.

    If Cummings would have sat down and admitted that he was arrogant and deliberately breaking the rules which he has installed -because he thought that he was better or more important - it would have been not as pathetic as that sh*tshow that is currently on TV.

    What a loser!

    For what it's worth, everyone that I know personally is doing the same thing. We're not going to play around with this until there's a cure.

    I get that people are antsy. I'm antsy too, and I want to resume my normal life. At the same time, we're looking at probably a year (hopefully less) before this gets fully resolved. I can grit my teeth and do this for a year out of respect for others. I'm really concerned about keeping the economy afloat, but that's another argument entirely.

    He's a career psychopath. The government needs to accept that the situation puts at risk people's willingness to adhere to lockdown rules and may cost lives. The PM should sack him, but I fear he's too arrogant or weak, or both, to do that.
    Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 50 years.

    Thunderbird Too! Wales is still in full lockdown, and that suits Me. My Employer has confirmed we are continuing Working From Home at least until September, and WFH will most likely carry on beyond that.
    This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

    Kirk and Spock were listening to Cummings, too.

    But everyone bends the rules.

    If I go out to buy a Times and a bottle of red - hardly essential, is it?
    But what if I do my daily approved exercise - and there's a Co-op at at the end of it? And I go in and buy the Times and wine. Is that right or wrong?
    What if Cummings drives 250 miles - what of it? He's in the car, it's not strictly as bad as walking around your local supermarket.
    It would be different if he got to go to his Mum's funeral or into her care home or something - cos no one else is allowed to do that.

    Oh, and the photographers weren't social distancing as they tried to interview him/harass him - so they are in the wrong.

    If I understand correctly, UK citizens where ordered to stay at home and not driving around and visiting family.

    Higgins is right. This is not bending the rules it’s blatantly flouting them. My Father, my Aunts and Uncles they are in other parts of the country. Many of my friends and colleagues have kids and or elderly parents too.
    Why were none of us given this ‘provision?’ Because it was breaking the law!
    Sack him? He should be prosecuted for gross negligence, endangering the lives of others and shut given a prison sentence of at least four months.

    I thought the local spotting him etc was a bit odd too. I thought we were all supposed to be social distancing but that doesn't seem to apply to journalists and photographers. At least, not the ones surrounding Cummings getting into his car. Seems like a double standard to me.

    So the local couldn’t have spotted him from two metres away?

    Journalists and photographers are allowed to work - whilst maintaining social distancing...what you are NOT supposed to do is drive the length of the country to visit your parents! I thought THAT was obvious. THAT’S where your double standards are.


    Hmm, I really didn’t word that well at all. I was responding to NP’s post about the local typing the number plate into his computer. That’s what I found odd. The social distancing comment I made was not about the local although I can see that it looks that way by the way I wrote it. That was about the photographers and journalists that were crowding around and not social distancing. And my double standard comment was referring to one group not sticking to the rules while judging another. Hope that it makes a bit more sense now.

    I like those :-)

    Boris Johnnson's attitude over the Cummings business reminds me of when he tried to prorogue parliament. Contemptuous and contemptible, except now with lives at stake. Unfortunately, Durham Police don't have the clout that the Supreme Court had... and once again dissenting Tory MPs will end up being silenced.

    Maybe I should be Boris's adviser! Although I think I would need to have a proof reader :)

    Albert Finney was nicely self-isolated until Bond and Emma showed up, probably hadn't seen another soul for years.

    And Bond and that Sylva had both been travelling in Asia less than 14 days before visiting Glencoe, and they both went on London public transit at rush hour!

    Iceland, Norway, Denmark and Germany open up their border for tourism between the countries. The Swedes are surprised and offended because they are left out. Why, indeed? :))

    Sweden now allows their citizens to visit ten other countries. I'm sure those countries are very happy about that :v
    Norway isn't one of those countries since the risk of Corona is so high here. This seems obvious because Norway has 243 Corona dead while Sweden just passed 5000 dead ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:)

    Well at least they held a memorial ceremony in the parliament yesterday morning for the thousands of people who have died of the coronavirus:

    "Holding this type of ceremony in parliament is an unusual step in Sweden. Previous examples were arranged to honour victims of the 2004 tsunami in which (edit: "only") 534 Swedes perished, and of the MS Estonia ferry disaster two decades before that ("only" 500), as well as following the killings of Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986 and Foreign Minister Anna Lindh in 2003."

    It's nice of them to show some consideration now...

    There is a small group that has a demonstration against the official anti-Corona policy in Stockholm every week, focusing on the vistims. Many of the people passing by yell "traitors!" and spit at them :#

    German news seems a bit slow because that hasn't been correct for a 100 years. What's your source? ?:)
