This is from a Conservative MP. “Frankly I feel disgusted on how a Conservative Prime Minister can treat decent people who have sacrificed so much with such contempt.”
I know all the journalists are furiously busy, and all their readership is enthralled, but why aren’t we talking about how almost 40,000 people got killed unnecessarily by a virus or what’s likely to happen with the second peak from June onwards? Easier to pin tails on donkeys.
My team called Public Health England on behalf of constituents in difficult circumstances to ask if travel could be justified, eg parents of students struggling with mental health wanting to pick them up. Advice was *always* not to travel. Boris Johnson defending the indefensible
The problem the Prime Minister may well find is that many millions of good fathers and good mothers didn't do what Dominic Cummings did and aren't going to be happy to a) find out they could have done and b) at the possible inference that DC was a better parent because he did.
Even the Spectator getting it at last: "It’s not often a politician calls a press conference to sneer openly at the voters but... the Prime Minister’s performance this afternoon was a careful, considered declaration of contempt at all those chumps stupid enough to obey the rules"https://picsoci.com/tweet/2beSRm5Ym3
Father in Law died 15th April. We obeyed rules & didn't travel 45 mls despite being desperate to see him & say goodbye. Mother in Law had to care for him alone & watch him die alone. If only we followed our instincts. My wife is unconsolable after that shameful press conference.
