MPs respond to Dominic Cummings lockdown breach

The Prime Minister’s top aide Dominic Cummings has denied that he broke the lockdown rules when he drove more than 250 miles to his parents’ home at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Many cabinet members have supported Mr Cummings’ decision to break lockdown, with Rishi Sunak MP among those who described the act as ‘reasonable’.

    Deluded, if they think that they can come up with these excuses for utter idiocy. Reminds me of the people who where gathering in the masses in parks last weekend.

    Everyone else that breaks lockdown is irresponsible and putting others at risk, when it's one of their buddies it's no big deal and he has the prime minister's full support. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    So a man went home to see his Mum. Many other people have done this, but because he is in government we need his resignation. The news is all about covid at the moment and I wish we were already at the point where it's all over. But it's not. So let's go after any government mp who could be flaunting the law. For god sake grow up and leave everyone alone. The uk press is going to have to answer to many nuisance reports when we get back to some kind of normality here.

    Get a grip, scumbags. I hate this clown more than most, but this is a lot of fuss about nothing, orchestrated by a media desperate for vengeance, attention and revenue. Durham police report this guy was as harassed by them as anyone else would have been given the circumstances, probably more so given his public profile. All this talk of double standards is based on anecdotal evidence; there's plenty of evidence to suggest that lockdown penalties have been issued only rarely and in tandem with the application of common sense. 14,000 lockdown penalties issued up to May 15th, with 865 repeat offenders. With an adult (over 18) population of some 53 million, that's a fine rate of some 0.0002%.

    I can guarantee that every single person reading this has broken lockdown regulations, probably repeatedly, and faced no fine or repercussions of any sort.

    The opposition have not been there to support people throughout this crisis period and now they are all ganging up against this man.Those who have wanted him to be sacked long before this are waiting anxiously. Look at those journalists, they broke the rules by standing next to him and his family.
    What has become of this society.
    We have become like wolves waiting to bounce on others.
    I am very saddened by the opposition and the media for driving others to extreme positions as they did to the Scottish scientist who was made to reign because she visited her family. Shame on those who live by bullying others. We should all remember that this is mental health week . We need to show kindness and tolerance
    Dominic do not resign because of bullies.
