Hypocrisy: Will Tories try to force parents to send kids to schools, after supporting Cummings?

Unreasonable: plans like this for social distancing in schools simply won’t work. Parents, teachers and unions are right to refuse to participate in this nonsense and Tories will find it hard to criticise them after supporting Dominic Cummings’s decision to take his children to Durham, allegedly to protect them.

Here’s a great scenario from a commenter to Vox Political on Facebook:

Tory: Dominic Cummings was only trying to protect his 4-year old child. Every parent has a right to make common sense decisions for their children.

Parent: I don’t want my 4-year old child to go to reception class.

Tory: Irresponsible parent, how could you keep them at home! Send them to school!

It’s a good point.

No evidence has been provided to show that children (and therefore their parents and any other adults they meet) will be entirely safe from Covid-19 at school.

But the Tories have slammed parents who said they’ll keep their kids away from schools in order to protect them.

Now, backing up Cummings, they have hypocritically claimed that parents have every right to protect their children.
