The Prime Minister’s chief adviser, Dominic Cummings, travelled out of London during the lockdown while ill with coronavirus symptoms. He was questioned by the police after travelling to Durham in an apparent breach of the lockdown rules.

It came as the government announced a new £1,000 fine for anyone arriving in the UK from abroad and failing to self-isolate for 14 days. The new quarantine rule is being introduced from June 8th. Ministers say it will help prevent a second wave of coronavirus infections.

Very cool information for those who seek to be Eunuchs Matthew 19, Isaiah 56:4 might as well throw in some fat injections while your at it. https://www.facebook.com/1071556406/posts/10219479464591885/

I will be polite, but because I have to. DC, you should be ashamed of your conduct. Even as a special advisor to the Hon. PM Mr Johnson, your salary is paid for by the taxpayer and hence you should be made accountable for your actions. Stop hiding behind hour hat and face the music.

The exception that proves the tool.

Blake Fitzgerald says:

Fruit pickers work on farms and travel into urban areas for food shopping, tobacco and alcohol that wont change, thinking otherwise is completely deluded.

What about people coming into the country on flights before that date?

What about people coming into the country on the channel tunnel or ferries? Unless we as a country are going to man and run quarantine centres this system is already broken.

But sheepies they are guidelines not law, hell even the CPS have said the fines are illegal. Let that sink in for a minute.🤔🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🤣🤣

Oh no….what a bad boy. Better stay inside your houses and show this guy your outrage. What a hypocrite, am I right? Yeah, let's all stay in our house and do as we're told to show him we're better than him!

Patrick Gillespie says:

Young and healthy people should be set free to work and get this country back on its feet. Quarentine the old and vulnerable who are targeted by this virus. The government cant tell us that they were wrong about the impact of covid and the severity because if they u-turn now its absolutely over for them(cming from a conservative voter) what a massive cock up.

My experience of covid… worked throughout this lockdown in a customer facing role in west london no mask, no gloves all I have done is wash my hands and keep my hands to myself. Surely if this disease was so deadly I would have contracted it by now.

Joshua King says:

That was corona virus he had it was a major come down. I hope he gets a £60 fine 😂😂
