For the past several weeks the people of the U.K. have been living with lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  We have the second highest death rate in the world due to the Government’s inept handling of the situation.  Guidance not only being given by the SAGE group of Government experts and scientists, but also by the Prime Minister’s own senior adviser, Dominic Cummings.

It has been reported, and confirmed, that Dominic Cummings with his family, drove over 250 miles to Durham during this lockdown period.  The excuse being given is that “he needed to ensure childcare”, yet every other member of public who gave suffered with Covid-19 have not had this option as they have followed the Government’s own advice of ‘Stay Home - Stay Safe - Protect the NHS’

Dominic Cummings has now shown by his total disregard of his own Government’s advice by putting people at risk on his journey to Durham, by potentially spreading the disease further having said “his wife had symptoms of Covid-19”, he completely disregarded the sentiment of protecting the NHS by the potential spread due to his actions that he should not be employed by this Government any longer.

The actions of Dominic Cummings show the general public that lockdown means nothing and can actually result in many people not complying with it, this leaves the police in an untenable situation when the Prime Minister and other members of the government are openly condoning the actions of this Government Adviser.  This goes against the precedent already set by the resignations of the other Senior Ministers and Scientific Advisers in the U.K. who have been forced to resign due to their actions during lockdown.  

Dominic Cummings should be made to resign or he should be summarily dismissed!
