Misleading headline - the UK has not exonerated him; he is clearly guilty of contravening guidelines. The only ones in a position of authority who are supporting him are those desperately trying to po

More fudging the issue from Boris. He can't dump him as he is the brains behind the bluffing. This will rumble on, it makes a mockery of the so called "lockdown".

This whole fuss is just remainers' revenge for him getting Brexit done.

As though other politicians haven't done a lot worse in other matters and not kept their jobs.

I said before that Cummings' sister could have used the 'special circumstances' excuse to come to London and collect the child. That was based upon memory and having now checked the guidance I admit was wrong on that point .

 

 

 

 

Apology accepted, would have been respectful to acknowledge it on my post though.

Posted only once and it's not down to you to decide if Cummings should ask his sister to come to London or not 

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020

Restrictions on movement

 During the emergency period, no person may leave [F1or be outside of] the place where they are living without reasonable excuse.

As per Deputy Chief Medical Officer's Dr Wakefield statment in March

 For the purposes of paragraph (1), a reasonable excuse includes the need—

to provide care or assistance, including relevant personal care within the meaning of paragraph 7(3B) of Schedule 4 to the Safeguarding of Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 F7, to a vulnerable person, or to provide emergency assistance;

Why are you omitting one of the following sentences, that clearly state how he should have handled? According to the law this was clearly not a reasonable excuse.

 

You're defending the indefensible, just admit you don't care in Cummings' case.

The reasonable excuses listed in Regulation 6 of the coronavirus Health Protection Regulations for England, as they stood at the time, are inclusive, not exclusive. The sole issue in the case of Mr Cummings is whether what he and his wife did, in the circumstances as they existed when they drove to Co Durham, amounted to “a reasonable excuse”.That is a matter of opinion, not of law. Only a court can determine that: not a QC, nor Alastair Campbell, nor Uncle Tom Cobbleigh
