travelled from London to his parents’ house more than 260 miles away. They were almost certainly infected with Covid-19; his parents are both over 70 and so are judged to be “at-risk”. Even in quiet traffic conditions, the journey would have been a five-hour one; the idea that it could have been accomplished by car without a stop is laughable. So the potential for further infection was significant.
we are being told that there is no way that Polecat Dom will resign over his cavalier interpretation of the rules, one that sticks two fingers up at all those little people, and instead favours Himself Personally Now. And here we come to the most regrettable aspect of this affair: the exhibition of shameless client journalism.
Which takes us to Ms Kuenssberg, who, just as she did with Matthew Elliott over the Vote Leave lawbreaking, has been caught taking dictation, rather than doing her job. If there were anyone within the BBC News and Current Affairs arena with the cojones to do the right thing, she would have already been sacked as a result of spinning for Cummings (her “source”). But there isn’t anyone, so she’ll probably get away with it. Again.
Behold the whole rotten edifice of political corruption and client journalism. And this will keep on happening - until someone calls time on it. I’ll just leave that one there.
