  1. I guess it’s human nature to want to be with your family at this terribly testing time… but when you are one of the architects of ‘LOCKDOWN’… was it morally and ethically correct for DC to break the rules and be allowed to furnish us with today’s unapologetic statement?

  2. He should have at least apologised… pure arrogance… despise that. He should say sorry… and then be sacked. 😉

  3. The reason he did it is covered in the list of allowed exceptions in the March 23rd rules. It stated that “You should only leave or be away from your home for very limited purposes”. One of the reasons it goes on to list states “To provide care or to help a vulnerable person”. He self isolated in a separate house away from his parents with his wife and his vulnerable autistic 4 year old son, ensuring that his son would have someone to look after him, should he and his wife become incapacitated. It’s all right people speculating and saying “Why didn’t they have other people in London to look after him,” when we do not know anything about their private life and their families, except that Dominic’s uncle had just died in London while Dominic was in Durham. He put his childs safety first over attending a funeral of a close relative. Odd how it’s the labour newspapers (Daily Mirror and the Guardian) that were the papers whipping this witch hunt up into a frenzy, yet they never mention what the Labour MPs have done during this. You don’t hear the hypocritical Keir Starmer mention what his people have done while he’s having a go at Boris. For example, Labour MP Stephen Kinnock who travelled 150 miles on March 28th to go to his dads birthday party. At least Dominic’s reason was in the list of allowed exceptions. Going to birthday parties in the first week of lockdown was definitely not on the allowed list. Or what about Labour MP Tahir Ali, who broke lockdown rules on April 1st to attend a funeral (Not allowed then). Why have those two Lanour MP’s not got their houses swarmed by journalists all crammed together at their front gate, not socially distancing and breaking the 2 metre rule trying to get photos?

    • Yes, good points Dave. I think DC was in a good position to stay at home with his family… honouring the lockdown initiative- that which he helped to instigate… and be seen to conform. He believes he is above reproach. Arrogance? Ignorance?

      What of those poor families that could not attend the hospital death of burial of their children and other loved ones? Is it not an insult to them? DC is a public figure that feeds advice to our PM… His thinking was not for the good of anyone but himself… he went on a family trip and a jolly. If he had at least apologised to the families who have really suffered through the C19 outbreak and those that have become hermits in support of eradication of the virus… I may have had an ounce of respect for him… But, let’s face it… he tried to worm out of it with utter bullshit…

      He cannot be trusted… and whatever he’s got on Boris… must be huge!

      Should DC go? Damn right he should.

  4. There is a principle here… a moral obligation on the part of all ministers… moreso has the Cummings debacle shown a betrayal of the public trust- was his family-outing unethical? Or was it just a breach of reason? My friend’s father died of C19 a few weeks back… only a few folk were permitted to attend the funeral, the closest of immidiate family. Fine DC and ask him to apologise (although fairly worthless in light of his attitude in the rose garden) and then sack him.
