West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson has responded to the reports of the Prime Minister’s Special Advisor Dominic Cummings apparently breaching lockdown guidance.
David Jamieson said:
“The police’s job of enforcing the lockdown has been made much harder after both the actions of Dominic Cummings travelling over 260 miles and the flexibility with which the government now seem to interpret the guidance.
“People will now say there is one rule for them and one rule for the Prime Minister’s political advisors.
“Across the country millions of people are making sacrifices, including scores of police officers and staff who have separated from their families to protect their health and the health of the nation.
“It seems beyond belief that to justify the breach of guidance they appear to now be questioning the honesty and credibility of Durham Police.
“The Prime Minster, Boris Johnson should sack Dominic Cummings forthwith, to restore public confidence and some credibility to his handling of this dreadful Covid-19 crisis.”Back to News Archive
