Cummings has been found guilty of breaking the lockdown rules by Durham Police. However, it concluded it was a minor breach and no further action. Unlike the two familes who drove up to Durham from London who were charged with breaking the rules.

So unless we get a louder Tory revolt, he's gotten away with it

Yes and no. Boris Johnson, Gove and the Attorney General all made a big point about how he hadn't broken the rules, and how it was all down to interpretation and everyone 'must make their own minds up'. The police disagreeing with this should be a pretty big issue, particularly for the Attorney General.

If I was a selfish cunt I would be out protesting and using the Cummings defence. Thankfully I'm not an absolute fucking dirty Tory cunt and will continue to stay in and do my bit bit to add to the pandemic.

Top Tory twat Matt Hancock laughing about this pandemic and the awful track and trace rollout boils my piss. I only hope that people remember this shower of shit when election rolls around.

Highest death toll? Fuck me. 

Of course they won't. All this will be swept under the rug. It'll be all "We got Brexit done" "we reduced the number of people on benefits by (insert Covid death toll here)" and "we invested this much in the NHS (by selling it off)". Or "Starmer is a socialist, (billionaires) paying more tax to properly fund public services is bad".

They are straight into the denial already. Focusing entirely on "The Police said he did nothing wrong driving to Durham" and ignoring the part where they said he DID break the law going to the Castle. It's all a PR exercise to them. They just don't give a fuck.

Quick clarification on Durham Police using the phrase "might have committed a breach." That's apparently legal speak for "he broke the rules and we'd have considered it a breach if we'd caught him."

EDIT: Specifically, it's not up to the police to decide if somebody has broken the law. That's decided by somebody admitting guilt by accepting a fine or the case goes to court and they are convicted. "Might" in this situation means they consider he breached the rules.

You can be sure that word was inserted to give just the amount of wiggle room to get him out of it, again.

Look what's happened while Dominic Cummings has been dragged through the media. What an odd coincidence. 

Going to be some craic seeing the DUP explain their reasons for voting "aye" to much of their farming-based supporters. A lot of them would likely voted leave either because (a) they felt EU based agriculture regulations were burdensome on them, or (b) because the DUP said so - but I seriously doubt many of them voted for cheap hormone-pumped and chlorine washed shite coming into the UK to render them quickly into bankruptcy.

Can we have a, “LinkedIn updates that blow your mind” thread? I know LinkedIn is full of business people spouting bollocks to make themselves look good any way, but an absolute nugget-of-a-connection has just posted this:

Does anyone know how I could get tickets or whatever is required to do the tour at the Mclaren Technology Centre in woking? I've been wanting to go for years but not sure how or where I can go to, to attend.

Like, c’mon, mate. We’re in lockdown because of a global pandemic. They’re not going to be conducting tours and let you have a little walk around. And it would involve a Cummings-esque trip of almost 300 miles that definitely isn’t going to count as “essential travel”.

Will probably go next Monday when 'Showrooms' are back open again, technicalities and all.

Johnson, Thursday: "The alert level is going to 3 and we're easing lockdown."

The Alert Level Committee, Friday: "We're still at level 4."

Theres about 20/30 people all having a pint in my locals car park, which is open for "food takeaway" so I'm pretty sure everything is back to normal.

Deaths are up from weeks previous.

More importantly new cases are up, hidden in the 'more tests' so they don't matter bracket.

I don't know why Johnson doesn't get everyone to line up to lick the tongue of a Covid carrier to just get everyone to get it.

You know for a fact they're going to brag about lowering the unemployment rate in a year or so, as well as a dip in the housing crisis.

When the UK has to go back into Lockdown and the other European countries don't, what then? Are the cunts still going to tell us we're ahead of it and the cunts that follow them with their Union Jacks in their bio, going to defend them again? 

We're on the same level of deaths as we were GOING into Lockdown. Is it some sort of herd immunity masterplan lead by a capitalist death cult? That would somehow give me comfort that they're evil bastards who know what they're doing. Instead they're just a cabal of useless populist cunts who lie and lie, unable to even contemplate that they are wrong or that they should listen to others. A cabinet as bad as we have ever had in this country. I'm fucking fed up of it all and hugely angry.
