Does anybody know exactly what Dominic Cummings' qualifications are to be advising and influencing UK Govt. on policy?

Three word slogans.

 

Get Brexit Done.

I really can't remember a bigger load of horseshit than Cummins' statement this afternoon. 'Drove thirty miles to test his eyesight' He must have plenty on Boris to still be in the tent pissing out. Anybody else would be long gone and wouldn't have survived the weekend. This is only going to get worse for Boris and the Government now.

Cummings’ statement this afternoon did little or nothing to address the issues facing the government, according to Dr Michael Head, a global health expert at the University of Southampton:

The statement from Cummings really only reinforced his clear disregard for public health guidance, with regards these movement of hundreds of miles by Covid-infected individuals. It seems curious that apparently no one offered to help Cummings and his family during their time of illness in London, bearing in mind he is close to many of the most powerful and wealthy politicians in the country, including the prime minister.

There are also issues of taking up emergency healthcare resource in an area of the country where you are not resident – this makes a mockery of healthcare planning where ideal number of intensive care beds are based on population numbers in the local area. It is also very poor public health practice to put your family in a car and go for a 60-mile drive in order to test your eyesight.

There are still Covid-19 deaths in care homes and hospitals. The pandemic can only finish if there is strong leadership from the government and compliance from the general public. Going forward, we have real potential issues around trust in the government from the general public. However, it is of huge importance important that the public do try and stay on board with the expert-led advice, to support themselves, their families and the general population.
