Will the Tories answer my question about Dominic Cummings?

I have submitted a question to the Tory government, for its representative to answer during the daily briefing. You can read it above.

For those who can’t read image files well, it says: “Given the support offered by government ministers to Dominic Cummings after he travelled 260 miles to visit his family when he should have been self-isolating, would it have been permissible for all the other families in a similar situation to have made journeys to be with their own families? If so, why was this not explained to us? And if not, then aren’t Mr Cummings and all the ministers who supported him acting irresponsibly? Should they not reconsider their positions as members of the government?”

In fairness, I may have submitted it a little late to be in today’s (May 23) briefing.

But do you think I’m ever likely to get an answer?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    I suspect that the Tories know in truth that Cummings cannot survive this, but they hope to avoid appearing to bow to public pressure to remove him. My guess is that an announcement of his resignation will be sneaked out probably on Tuesday/ Wednesday when they hope something else will have people’s main attention.

    Mike come on now you almost make it sound like they aren’t cherry picking which questions get “asked” and who gets to ask them

    Its clear that as disgusting an excuse for a human being that thing claims to be it must have some leverage over the cabinet

      If I’m having to publish my question in advance, here, then you can be sure I’m reckoning on the Tories cherry-picking questions!

      I edited your post for reasons of good taste.

    apparently he had to make arrangements for his 4 yr old son to be looked after in case he got the virus.i am assuming he was with his dad in london while the relatives who were willing to look after the child were Durham area.

      He had family near him in London, also work associates, and there was a scheme in that part of London to help people who needed it. There was no need for him to travel at all.
