    Well, well, well . . . .

    Can we expect the same intense "interest" from the Remain lobby, the far Left, the "Blob", assorted politicians, the media and Uncle Tom Cobley and All as Dominic Cummings has had?




    See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ing-rules.html and https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/117260...birthday-snap/

    Corbyn is an Honourable Member of Parliament, a person formally elected to the UK national legislative body, and thus a law maker. He represents over 76,000 constituents. Is he setting a good example? Cummings is just a government employee, advises politicians and represents no one.

    In the coming days we will no doubt see evidence of double standards with a thousand reasons why Corbyn is not subjected to the same mobs and judgements for days as Cummings has been. This despite the fact that he has clearly broken the social distancing rules. I wonder if the same persons, some with questionable intelligence, will be saying "if it is good enough for him it is good enough for me"?

        For goodness sake - this (Jeremy Corbin) certainly seems stupid but it’s nothing like as irresponsible.

          You seem obsessed with him... and now you're collecting photos of him gazing longingly at you into the camera lens.

            Shocking. He must have a problem with his eyesight if he can't judge distance properly. There's a lot of it about.

              Lie, lie, and lie again, blame the media and deflect

              Although as far as deflection goes this is so weak, Is this really the best they can do.

                Anyone who does not respect the rules and particularly those in a public position,deserve criticism. However,Cummings is not merely a Government employee he is the PMs chief advisor.The reason why Tory Mps have called for him to go is at least partly because of the power he exerts.With that power comes responsibility. Durham Police have confirmed the Barnard Castle trip broke the regulations, but they will not take retrospective action.For that reason and the effect it has had on compliance, he should go.However,of course he won't.Why is he so hard to replace?Chief advisors have transgressed in the past and their departure is usually swift.This represents very poor judgement at a time when we need and deserve better

                  Hi all
                  Mr Corbyn should have been given a telling by police,,,,so should Mr Cummins.
                  Two wrongs don't,,,,,,,,,
                  So should the Tory MP And Cabinet Minister Mr Jenrick.

                        We all got the joke and I am half English/Irish.

                        There is a lack of .'irony' on this forum at times.
                        Sandra,,just put a winking emoji like the above,it gets you away with murder sometimes.

                          To offer another perspective, the Corbyn story has featured in the same number of newspapers as the Cummings story initially did.Lets see how the public react.If they don't react in the same way , maybe it might be partly political. I would suggest however that it would have more to do with the fact that to many people Corbyn is now an irrelevance, but mainly to do with the fact that Cummings helped frame the regulations and then disregarded them.
                          There are plenty of people I know who are not interested in politics at all but are really angry about this issue.
