Whatever. You do realise that any track and trace strategy is now dead in the water. Similarly any regional lockdown, unless enforced with full force. If you don't believe me try looking at the comments on the most popular UK online paper, the Daily Mail.Some think Dom was right, some that he was wrong, but the consensus is that government guidelines are finished.

As I keep saying, the choice as to what media attend these briefings, and everything about them, is decided by the government itself. No-one is forcing them to do things this way. You should ask yourself why.

Yes, that's true. The second trip doesn't appear to have happened. However, what did happen, and was roundly denied by government spokespersons, was that the Cummings family was contacted by the police. I'm not seeing any contrition about that, nor any explanation why the government communications team, paid for by us, refused to clarify what had happened for weeks, until the emergence of a witness who'd recorded the Cummings car number plate made that stance untenable.

Nice try, but according to the Mirror and Guardian they had been asking for the information as to what exactly Cummings had done, and why, for several weeks, and answer came there none. I'm sure the Cummings exception has come as a genuine surprise to many in government and outside. It's a stretch to suggest that the Press is in anyway complicit.
Also no external legal department has the same access to the scope of the regulations as the government's very own well resourced legal department, who after all drafted the things.

This is a massive foul up, however much Cummings supporters want to move on quickly. I just hope that their childlike faith in his abilities has taken a hit, because he really seems to be the living embodiment of the phrase, 'a clever fool'.

One answer is ID cards and checks, but last time they were seriously suggested lefties and libertarian righties had conniptions.

Frankly this makes the dimmest civil servant look like a master of organisation. Cummings has caused more political chaos with his ill thought out moves than anything I can remember. If he was a proper grown up he would have asked the head of the civil service for advice, and would quite probably ended up speeding northwards in an official car, assuming of course that the stuff about being besieged and threatened at home is true. When weeks ago the Guardian asked where he'd been he would have given them a version of yesterday's briefing and it would have gone away.
The civil service has functioned pretty well during this crisis, not so Cummings.

Special knowledge and skills that nobody else in Britain has? Seriously? This is becoming cult like. What about Isaac Levido and his team who apparently won the last GE? Will they rush back to Australia leaving us all alone?
Actually I haven't checked your posting history. Maybe you're a Labour party infiltrator keen to see Cummings in place for a bit longer.

Not really what Cummings said, though, is it.

Well they are perfectly free to do that. The way some people carry on on this site you'd think that the government spokespersons were being dragged out by revolutionary guards to explain themselves. It is the government that has decided the structure of these briefings and used the media to keep the population largely compliant with the lockdown. Up until now I would have said more power to their arm, though I am now wondering if I've been taken for a mug.
