No idea - other than he'll be 12 years old in August. So go on tell us?

I was just wondering why Evadgib was bringing him into the picture.

Ignored? He is a lowly opposition MP and yet he as all over the media few weeks back. Cummings is a far bigger scalp and is the architect of the government's catastrophic COVID failure. Kinnock isn't responsible for the UK having the worst COVID death rate in Europe. 

 

Yes, and of course he's a socialist, and son of socialist grandees. And laws and rules don't apply to them, do they?

 

So you think that Cummings is totally to blame for the UK's death rate? 

 

Regardless of the UK government's performance, and that's something they will be accountable to the electorate for, it's not an excuse to apply hypocrisy, and dual standards, based on political opinion. Kinnock is an MP, son of senior politicians and clearly being groomed for higher things. There is no excuse for the media deliberately ignoring Kinnock's law breaking.

In an article earlier this year, Cummings said the European Research Group, of which around 80 Tory MPs are members, “should be treated like a metastasising tumour and excised from the UK body politic”. Some are getting the knives well and truly sharpened now.

The thing all these fanboys either don't realise or choose to ignore is that DC is laughing at them. These little people who have been sticking to the rules, even as their closest loved ones are dying alone just down the road, or being laid to rest with barely a handful of mourners- the little people are accepting the harsh restrictions the government imposed. But not DC - he can do as he chooses and his fanboys cheer him on! Kim Jong Un must be looking on with amazement. 

Keeping the Rhubarb brigade at bay is no indication of being a fan RR; "Innocent until outed by left wing media" an' all that...

It hasn't stopped you (& I don't for one second believe you don't have any blood relatives constituting 'family' as per my point)

Steve Baker writing that Cummings must go.

 

Enough is enough. I and others saved him once before when he was driving Vote Leave to implosion. Not today. Dominic Cummings must go before he does any more harm to the UK, the Government, the Prime Minister, our institutions or the Conservative Party.

Time is up. It is time for Dom to resign so Boris can govern within the conventions and norms which will see us through. It is time to get competing expert advice, decent software and better decisions, end the lockdown and start a long, hard recovery.

Patel's son?

 

Or Abbot's. 

 

If the latter, Abbot was embarrassed when asked to justify his private schooling when she speaks out against private education. Her son then got himself arrested, I believe also charged for assaulting officers and there was some issue that if Labour had won, his mum would've likely been Home Secretary and might have swept it all under the carpet. He pleaded guilty as was due to be sentenced early April. He has been charged in court before with serious offense. All very strange has he is a Cambridge graduate and was working as a diplomat. Interesting reading.

I am not responsible for enforcing the rules - I am merely pointing out that (1) you were incorrect when you said Kinnock's behaviour wasn't covered by the media, and (2) that it makes sense that a man who has been instrumental in designing the UK response to COVID would be headline news when he repeatedly flouted the rules he helped design. 

 

I said the media haven't been calling for Kinnock to resign, nor have they been hounding him. And he's an elected MP.

 

AFAIK, Cummings went on one trip to County Durham. How many times was this repeated or what other trips did he make?
