  • Hell hath no fury like a Prime Minister scorned. @theresa_may gives her verdict on “Mr Cummings” - “I can well understand the anger of those who have been abiding by the spirit of the guidance given by the government” https://t.co/NaeHDxNU0m

  • This is not a real news conference. The Chief Medical Officer & Chief Scientific Officer have either been gagged &/or have told No 10 that they will not publicly back the PM’s defence of Dominic Cummings. Follow up questions have been stopped.

  • Tory MP @Simon4NDorset tells the Prime Minister the public’s reaction if he asks for a tighter lockdown will be “you can keep your lockdown”
    Nick Robinson Wed 27 May 2020 15:26
  • I can’t remember seeing a poll as clear as this. The public heard the PM’s explanation. They heard Dominic Cummings. A very clear majority simply aren’t buying it ?@DailyMailUK? https://t.co/p3eZW8z1UZ

  • Plus the one inaccuracy that clearly upsets him most is that he didn’t stay with his parents and they didn’t give childcare to his son
    Nick Robinson Mon 25 May 2020 16:39
  • So, how accurate were media reports? Cummings did, as reported, drive 250 miles to go to a 2nd home; & did drive half an hour to go for a walk when official advice was to Stay Home. The police did speak to his father but about security & not COVID. He did not go back to Durham
    Nick Robinson Mon 25 May 2020 16:34
  • Many parents will understand these fears. Others will understand why the PM’s top official wanted to get back to work as quickly as possible. The question is whether people now believe these are exceptional circumstances that permitted him to ignore the “Leave Home” injunction
    Nick Robinson Mon 25 May 2020 16:09
  • Those exceptional circumstances were not, however, largely related to COVID but to his desire to get back to work & his fear of leaving his sick wife & child alone at their London home as it might be a target of protests.
    Nick Robinson Mon 25 May 2020 16:04
  • Cummings offers no regrets, blames media reporting for the view that there’s one rule for him & another for everyone else & insists he behaved reasonably in “exceptional circumstances” 1/2

  • The problem with @BorisJohnson arguing that Dominic Cummings did what any father or parent would do is that he has invited every father or parent in the country to give their own verdict. If they agree - fine. If not ?

  • 3 reasons @BorisJohnson may be taking No 10 news conference 1. ‘There’s one rule for them & another for us’ = deeply damaging 2. So he can tell MPs “I’ve already answered that” 3. To stand by man who got him into No10 (And maybe ‘cos on a Bank Hol w’end people out having fun)
    Nick Robinson Sun 24 May 2020 15:58
  • No 10 threw everything at protecting Dominic Cummings today. Nevertheless this story is very far from over Link

  • This is the case for the defence of Dominic Cummings - he was protecting his family. Many already saying, however, that they were told that caring for their families by visiting them or travelling long distances was against the rules if not actually a crime Link
