The UK guidelines was, at that time, do not see anybody from outside your own home, do not see parents/grand parents and do not travel further than required coronavirus or not. If you were showing any symptoms you were told to self isolate for 14 days. There are many people out there who have had coronavirus and more than likely passed it onto their spouse. Their children will of been at risk yet they didn't travel to drop the children off at the grand parents so they could self isolate whilst safe guarding their children and at the same time putting their elderly parents at risk.I would much prefer to hear or read of the full facts and explanation before climbing upon the bandwagon to see the chap put into the stocks. All I am getting is the usual suspects pontificating about it being a flagrant breach of rules and that he be punished. Putting my legal wig on, I suggest that no law has been breached even if a social faux pas has occurred and having little solid evidence to work with, my remarks shall be limited.
I read and hear, again from the usual suspects, the Police have given advice and that no further action is warranted which is the normal course of events.
Very well said. Nail on the head there..The press we have these days is an utter disgrace to a democratic country (supposedly). They are drowning in their own hubris. I`ve stopped watching and reading them. The public, by an large and rapidly coming to that conclusion as well.Boris needs to ignore them and plough on. The main reason they hate him and those around him is that he delivered Brexit..No more no less.Before we go round hanging, drawing and quartering Dominic Cummings, where was the mass media outrage at the 2 Labour MPs who have broken government guidelines in the last month? It's the the hypocrisy of the Labour Party and it's devotees that stinks and not the actions of Dominic Cummings.
In fact, one of the memes I have seen on social media today sums up the situation quite nicely regarding peoples' attitudes to governmental guideline: two images; top one is of a school classroom with the caption being "it is far too dangerous to let school children here" and the bottom one is of a child at home with a caption "Hurry up in getting ready...we're going to the beach!".
Throw in an apparent edict to report some non-obvious deaths as "Covid 19" related (I have a friend who had found someome reporting that their deceased grandfather tested negative for it but the death certificates states cause of death Covid 19) makes me wonder if there's something more deeply worrying about the politcisation of the pandemic in trying to get the democratically elected Conservative Party removed from office due to an apparent "mishandling" of what has been occurring. The recent Panorama programme with the dissenting SAGE advisor did have an important thing not brought out widely.... she is the wife of Stephen Kinnock MP, one of the 2 MPs that broken government guidelines.
