  1. Lying cannot be accepted, and he must go. And then you agree, so must the 4 Labour MP's who broke the rules very clearly?
  2. It was specifically stated that he strictly observed the 14 days quarantine with relatives leaving provisions at the door. If he now changes the story, his credibility has gone, he lied and he must no go.
  3. I posted the BBC's explanation of the rules covering reasonable excuses. It lists examples but stresses the list is not exhaustive. As an example, Scotland's former chief medical officer made two trips, offered no reasonable excuses, and didn't self quarantine on either, as required. Even then her boss said at first she needn't resign but quickly changed her mind. There are 4 Labour MP's who broke the rules: 1. MP Stephen Kinnock, a shadow Minister, drove hundreds of miles, with his wife, a former PM of Denmark, to see his elderly parents during lockdown. His local police force shamed him. 2. MP Kevan Jones, attended a constituents’ birthday party. 3.MP Tahir Ali attended a funeral in his constituency as one of 100 mourners at the start of April. 4. Labour’s Health Secretary in Wales, Vaughn Gething, had a picnic with his family in a park at a time when the Welsh Government he sits on explicitly said “No picnics in the park.” None of the above have been pursued by the press. None have apologized or shown any remorse. Sir Keir Starmer, Labour Leader, has not comments on them, rebuked them or suggested they resign. Even though they are far more accountable to the public as elected servants for their behavior. If Cummings deliberately lied about breaking the quarantine when he was in Durham, he should go. But these 4 Labour politicians, who clearly think they can do as they please, must also be made to go. The law, rules, guidelines and acceptable behavior codes must apply to all equally. And not selectively based on their political affiliations.
  4. A perfectly reasonable reason, covered in the rules.
  5. Yes. Either he previously lied about that, or the PM did. Deliberately lying is a whole different ball game.
  6. “During the emergency period, no person may leave the place where they are living without reasonable excuse.” It then lists a series of reasonable excuses: To obtain basic necessities like food or medicine; to take exercise; to seek medical assistance; to provide care or assistance to a vulnerable person; to donate blood; to travel for the purposes of work or to provide voluntary or charitable services; to attend a funeral of a household member or close family member; to access critical public services; for access arrangements with a child who does not live with one or both parents; for a religious minister to visit their place of worship; to move house where reasonably necessary; to avoid injury or illness or to escape a risk of harm. So the list is not exhaustive - a reasonable excuse might arguably be something that is not on it. It is also important to make a distinction between the law and the guidelines drawn up by the government." Source BBC. BBC article explaining the real situation. Of course, as often the real situation doesn't reflect what those with a politically motivated agenda would like it to be.
  7. If it's proved there were other lockdown violations or if it's proved he violated the self quarantine rule on any trip, then he has to go. He should go as a result of his actions; not as a result of the gutter press hounding him because they don't like him. However, so should the 4 Labour politicians who all violated the lockdown law; without offering any reasonable excuse or apologizing. As elected public servants (555!) they are fully accountable for their actions and most certainly not above the law. The highly hypocritical selective Labour leader, Sir Starmer, has been totally quiet on this. No surprise their as he clearly thinks politics trumps justice.
  8. Yes but the important thing is who the owners are and the size of their envelopes.
  9. Indeed usual PTP speculative drivel. Hoping to stir something up from a largely apathetic electorate. Anti government protests would not mean protests in favor of a Shin Klepotcracy; or granting full immunity to Thaksin and Yingluck. That's just PTP dreaming of getting the trough control back again. Any future protests are more likely to be in favor of the fresh new political parties,
  10. Maybe because they don't want a second wave or the complete mismanagement and appalling figures of Western governments?
  11. I did and didn't see that. He appears to be a Liverpudlian Estate Agent - possibly Saint Declan! Fair play to him for helping this old guy who was unwise to come at his age in the first place. But just how did the family contact him to help? If you were concerned about your aged relative, would you contact an estate agent? Although to be fair, doubt the Embassy would be any help of give a monkey's.
  12. Not my experience. I am retired, have never worked in Thailand, never had a WP. I have a credit card via Krungsri bank which I have had since they acquired HSBC's retail business. I do not have any money locked away at all. I find the credit card side of their business extremely helpful. I can call them when I need to extend my credit limit and it's done instantaneously. I pay the full amount of my bill each month. Different banks and different bank branches apply their own rules.
  13. BBC have not been so vocal about demanding the resignation of 2 Labour MP's who broke the lockdown rules without any good justifiable reason.
  14. And several ladies accused Alex Salmond of sexual abuse. Cases that didn't stand up in court. Ladies suddenly appeared out of nowhere to accuse Justice Kavannagh in the US. Not being funny, but one person, saying the saw him is not proof.
