I can hear two people in the neighbourhood clapping. It was a nice gesture to begin with but I think it's getting a bit worn now.
Yeah the first week it was a nice gesture but after that it just seems to be about protecting your image on the street :roll:
It's a social thing on our street as well. Everyone is strictly social distancing so it's a chance to get together as a small community and give each other a wave.

How about a market on how long Cummings will stay in his job? :lol:

BBC news suggests the allegations and evidence is piling up, with sightings of him out and about. His continued silence and arrogance is going to infuriate people and isolate the cabinet. The transport Secretary was asked if members of the public in the same situation can do as Cummings did but avoided the question, as you would expect.

Opposition parties, the MSM and twitter mob have been desperate to get Cummings this weekend, but thankfully Boris has held firm.

DC is a national hero in my book and is doing a great job for the country.

The more Boris holds firm the better, we'll all get a buy one, get one free with both of them going :)

Covid Briefing, all the muppet journalists asking the same questions about Cummings. What a waste of important time to focus on such insignificance...

They always put bandwagon jumping in front of reporting the important news!

This thread was about covid19, Blighty has the worst death toll in Europe and its government has handled the crisis very very badly from the beginning.

Not saying they have done a sparkling job but do you think Corbyn, Long-Bailey, Starmer, Abbot would have done any better?

I think population density has a part to play but you never hear it mentioned much... persons per km2

It's quite a serious issue. Most people, including me, can understand breaking the lockdown rules to get your end away. When there's a blatant disregard of the rules by the people who make them and no explanation forthcumming (it's been claimed on Sky press preview that Cummings or spokesperson said he doesn't have time to waste explaining himself), tens of thousands will feel treated with contempt and may well ignore the lockdown rules.

People are told they are potentially putting lives at risk by ignoring social distancing measures. How many lives is Boris Johnson putting at risk by blatantly ignoring the 'one rule for them' issue that's brewing up and down the country?

The government has a majority of 80 and cummings has allot of dirt on Boris. In a nutshell, they can do what they want, right or wrong.
