Grant Shapps attempts to defend Dominic Cummings's 260-mile lockdown trip

Transport secretary Grant Shapps appeared visibly flustered when answering journalists’ questions on government aide Dominic Cummings’s lockdown breach in March.

Pressure has been mounting for the prime minister’s top adviser to resign or be fired after reports he breached lockdown rules to travel to a family home while sick with Covid-19

    Their unease is genuinely awkward to watch. How can they expect anyone at all to observe the lockdown measures, when one of their own is so unashamedly unapologetic about ignoring the rules?

    Man ensures his child is looked after whilst he and his wife self isolate, sounds fair to me.

    Such arrogance and such lies. Now, not in March, is the time to spend more time with your family. On your bike Mr Cummings, GET EXIT DONE. Spare the Prime Ditherer having to trace, track and sack you. It would take him too long.

    This is about credibility……or rather lack of it. Or maybe it was the science that led him which although accepts whilst wrong at the time, could only make decisions based on the science at that time 🤪 Reminds me of a yes minister sketch.

    Remember, REMAIN INDOORS.
    Don't visit people hundreds of miles away because the police may fine you and send you home. If you THINK you may be an IMPORTANT person then you do NOT have to REMAIN INDOORS. You don't care what other people think because you have judged yourself to be IMPORTANT. Ordinary people should REMAIN INDOORS and NOT travel. REMAIN INDOORS.

    He’s probably got so much dirt on Boris and cabinet members that they’ll have to appease him
