Looks like they are dealing with new complaints, and have had to admit they fined two people for making a trip from London to Durham a week after Cummings. So how come he ain’t getting fined? Supine bastards.

 

 

Police fined two people for travelling from London to Durham on 8 April

Vikram Dodd 

Durham police today said they fined two people for travelling hundreds of miles from London to their area during the coronavirus lockdown.

The news comes as a fresh statement from Durham police is expected as soon as today, following their examination of claims of sightings of Dominic Cummings in the Durham area, and whether lockdown rules had been broken.

A spokesperson for Durham police confirmed the fines were issued on 8 April against two people from different households who travelled together from London to Peterlee, in County Durham. That trip is about 260 miles and came just over a week after the prime minister’s key aide decided to drive with his wife and child from his London home to his parents’ farm, fearing being struck down by coronavirus.

The trip by Cummings has led to no action by police, and its revelation on Friday by the Guardian and Daily Mirror led to calls for Cummings’ resignation, but he has maintained his actions were lawful and not in breach of the lockdown.

Cummings also admitted to a trip on 12 April to a beauty spot, Barnard Castle, with his wife and child. He said on Monday he had been testing his eyesight and fitness to drive after being struck down by the virus.

Durham police say since the original news stories, they have received further claims and complaints from the public and are examining that information. 

Cummings said he travelled to ensure childcare in case he and his wife were struck down by the virus, and claims an exemption to the stay at home order issued by his boss, the prime minister, allowed him to make the trip. Many disagree and have called for his resignation. The new statement from Durham police is eagerly awaited.

On that one, the Barnard Castle trip, it was always going to be a minor breach and, at worst, a reminder of what the rules are and a "don't do it again" telling off. 

 

That's what made the unwillingness to hold his hands up seem even more bizarre. It was done to try and save his position, but there'd probably have been fewer people calling for his head if he'd have just apologised and admitted he'd ballsed up. 

Durham Police taking no further action.

 

We need a revolution. Power to the pro-maskers!

There's lots of calls for Suella Braveman to resign now. On the basis that her decision that no laws were broken runs contrary to what the police have now concluded and that this suggests that her decision was political in nature and she's put politics above the rule of law.

No 10: The police have made clear they are taking no action against Mr Cummings over his self-isolation and that going to Durham did not breach the regulations. PM has said he believes Mr Cummings behaved reasonably and legally and he regards this issue as closed

On top of that, she's thick as fuck.

The Deputy Mayor of Labour has temporarily stepped down while her birthday gathering is investigated. Professor Ferguson has stepped down. 

 

These are all relatively minor breaches. Cummings surely has to do the same?

On a not so optimistic note the UK suffers the highest death rate for Coronavirus

From week ending March 20 just under 60,000 of our fellow citizens have died

"Along with the US and Peru, the UK is still registering a large number of excess deaths, although the toll has dropped sharply since the 12,000 weekly peak in mid-April."

The best I could find.

 

Overall, it's not exactly news, UK was already crowned champions and there were theories Italy may have been underreporting a bit, which would come out in total statistical data.

US numbers are totally confusing, excess deaths are much lower than reported Covid deaths. No mass shootings?

Lefty appears to have become a catch-all term for anyone who's not a cunt.

They're terrified of a remoaner plot to snatch their 'victory' away. Cummings getting binned is obviously just the first step in thwarting their no deal dreams and they're not paranoid weirdos, honest.

South Korea has tightened restrictions in the metropolitan area of Seoul after a spike in infections. Restrictions had been lifted across the country on 6 May after the outbreak appeared to be brought under control. However, officials have recorded the biggest spike in infections in nearly two months, prompting the closure of museums, parks and art galleries in the Seoul area for two weeks from Friday. Half of South Korea’s 51 million people live in the metropolitan area where restrictions are being tightened.

Cummings could eat squealing babies live on television and rabid Brexiteers would excuse his behaviour.

Well they are the same people who would rather see babies drown at sea than be given food and shelter in the UK.
