“Two of four people who claim to have seen Cummings on what would have been a second visit to the north-east of England have complained to the police watchdog, accusing the Durham force of not fully probing their claims. Cummings has consistently denied returning to Durham on 19 April, days after he came back to London from a trip that was subsequently exposed in a joint investigation by the Guardian and the Daily Mirror”.
Key witness: the Polecatmobile
Yes, once again it is those two papers that want to actually find out what Dom was up to, rather than obediently standing in line for that sought-after Downing Street briefing to splash all over their front pages. The Mirror’s Pippa Crerar - once a cheerleader for Team Bozo in her time at the Evening Standard - has claimed an “exclusive” for her paper.
“Dave and Clare Edwards put in an official complaint to the Independent Office for Police Conduct on Wednesday about Durham Police’s inquiry into their allegations … The couple claim they are '100% certain' they saw Boris Johnson’s chief aide while out walking in Houghall Woods near Durham the morning of Sunday April 19 … A third new witness also claims they saw Mr Cummings in the local beauty spot that morning, adding: ‘I would recognise him again.’” But where will the clinching evidence come from?
The only problem is that even if he is caught bang to rights lying (again), Cummings would not resign. And Bozo The Clown would not sack him. The corruption has become that bad.
