SO..2 sets of rules then ..!!!

SO..2 sets of rules then ..!!!

Squirming Transport Secretary Grant Shapps appeared to change lockdown rules while defending under-fire Downing Street aide Dominic Cummings today.

The cabinet minister was challenged over Cummings' 250 mile journey to Durham - despite tens of thousands of Brits having to be apart from their families in heartbreaking circumstances.

In an apparent blurring of the rules, Mr Shapps now claimed people had to quarantine "in the most practical way" - breaking drastically with government advice up to now.

The government has previously told those who develop coronavirus symptoms - and those they live with - not to leave their homes.

Cummings claimed he made the journey with his wife and child because he was worried about the four-year-old's welfare, and wanted to be nearby his family.

Facing questions from the media at today's daily briefing, Mr Shapps stuttered: "If you're in a position where you've got a young child and you're worried about the welfare of that child then clearly being somewhere where other members of the family can assist, then that may be the best place for you."

He added: "Mr Cummings is in the public eye but the reality is that the four-year-old child's welfare is the important thing."

Mr Shapps said the Prime Minister knew Cummings was ill, but would not be drawn on whether Boris Johnson knew his advisor had travelled to Durham.

And appearing to become irritated with questions about Cummings' actions, Mr Shapps said: "This wasn't to visit a holiday home, this was to stay at home."


Funny that he was to ill to stay in London , but quite healthy to drive and transport his tribe 230 miles to Durham to hand over his sprog to family members who [ because of age ] were vunerable .


Seems SHAPPS is have a problem trying to explain and wriggle out of that one .!!

Apparently, Cummings has made the visit to his parents on two seperate occasions. I agree 2 sets of rules.

Some of us share Spain and the UK as our home and are very much interested in what's going on in both places.
No matter where in the world you live you still are what you are.

The government is now saying that Mr C. did not make a second trip.
Downing St are claiming the MSM generated this story for political reasons.
Heaven forbid that they are suggesting that the MSM are telling lies.Surely they don't, do they?

Hi...Its an absolute shambles..The precedent has been set...Ferguson transgressed he had to go...incidently with the boot of the Health Secretary up his rear...the Scottish Health person had to go and I would expect people ...members of the public will have been sanctioned by the Police for not conforming to Lockdown rules. The trust of people is being put to the test...If he can ignore the rules in play then so can I is a reasonable but oh so dangerous path to set out on.
